An Aquarius and Capricorn is certainly an uncertain match. The relationship can either run very smooth or turn very sour. The contrasting character of the two sun signs will either keep them forever charmed with each other or they would end up clashing throughout their life if at all they enter into a nuptial knot.
For a Capricorn, rules and regulations are a part of the life and he/needs to live by the clock. Not only he wants them in his own life, but also wants that his partner would be following those as well. However, for an Aquarian, unpredictability is another name for life. The rules are meant only to be broken for this sun sign. The practical, impartial, hardworking and firm nature of the former thus ends up most of the time interfering with the relaxed and carefree approach of the latter.
They make a fantastic compatibility quotient when the contrasting characters of the partners complement each other rather than influencing them. It takes a bad twist only when the Aquarius and Capricorn try to dominate each other with their own personal traits. If the negative sides of the relationship are worked upon, this relationship can sail really well, but it will always be a relationship with major challenges.
This love match requires a lot of compromises from both the sides. While the intellect and poise of the Aquarian woman will attract the Capricorn initially, the infatuation is short-lived as he will find handling her free spirit too difficult. The Aquarius woman, who is always independent and an ardent lover of freedom, finds her partner too dominating. She will feel claustrophobic in the relationship if her self-confidence and independence is compromised. However, she will be always awed by his determination and resolution towards the pre-set goals in his life, and he will find his confidence and creativity really appealing. Though the differences will not be as gruesome as to dissolve the relationship, a lot of effort will be needed from both the sides to make the relationship work.
This relationship has more chances of survival than a Capricorn man and Aquarius woman partnership. But the fact that the Aquarian will have a lot of friends from both the sexes will sometimes make the Capricorn feel insecure. If she fails to understand the urge in the Aquarius male for constant adventure, the relationship is likely to turn sour. The unpredictability in the Aquarian will charm her at the beginning of the relationship, but she will soon grow tired of it. However, if they understand the differences as individuals in each other, they will complement each other and have a happy relationship.
The gravest problem in an Aquarius and Capricorn relationship is that, they are too occupied with the differences between each other and fail to give due attention to their love relationship. The lack of warmth and the drought of emotions drift their ways apart as romance finds no room in their love match amidst the constant criticisms and corrections of each other.
Aquarius and Capricorn have huge differences in their perceptions towards life and personality. The Capricorn is organized a bit too much while the Aquarius is never organized at all. Unless the duo has other compatible factors in their birth chart, the clashes can hardly keep them together as a couple.
The Capricorn will never find the attention and interest of the Aquarius to other people as righteous action while the conservatism of the Capricorn will only mean confinement and restriction to the Aquarius. To the Aquarian, a Capricorn will be hopelessly serious towards life while the Capricorn will find the Aquarius too "free spirited" to handle. A short-term romance or a friendship will work fine, but there is little possibility of a long-lasting relationship between an Aquarius and Capricorn. The cool Goat slowly loses its calm and the Water-bearer rebels against the rules and regulations of the partner that is too imposing. The friction never let things go too far.
If Aquarius and Capricorn want to grow together as a couple, the Aquarian has to keep a check on his 'friendly' nature while the Capricorn has to open up to social life and bring in some adventure and enthusiasm into the relation.
The Aquarian will find the dictating rules of the Capricorn dominating and thus, irritating, but still, he/she will find solace in his/her support. The Aquarian will like the assurance that someone is there to take care of his/her personal needs.
Love and respect for each other as individuals with diagonally different characters is the only thing that can save the relationship from the doom that the incompatibility of the sun signs point to.
