Capricorn, the sea goat, and Aquarius, the water bearer, are actually neighboring signs. They’re right next to each other on the zodiac wheel, so they share a rational horoscope and are pretty compatible with each other.
If you’re a Capricorn looking to know the details about your friendship with an Aquarius or vice versa, you’ve come to the right place.
So how well do these two get along?
Although Capricorn and Aquarius tend to not agree on certain things, they’re very compatible overall. They both value deep relationships and communication, and they’re very ambitious.
Let’s dive into everything you need to know about a friendship between these two signs.
Capricorns’ & Aquarius’ Personalities
To fully understand how compatible these two signs will be in a friendship, here’s a general idea of how these two signs think or act.
Like the goat, a Capricorn has a stubborn and persistent personality. They see something they like and go after it with everything they’ve got.
Even when everyone else has given up, a Capricorn will keep going. They don’t like losing at work or in life in general. They climb the corporate ladder until there are no rungs left.
A Capricorn sees relationships as essential to win in life, so they don’t waste time on lost causes. Capricorns take their time to get to know other people because their aim in relationships is to be in it for the long haul. If you’re not serious about a friendship or relationship, then you shouldn’t toy with a Capricorn man or woman.
Aquarians don’t conform to societal norms. This air sign is quirky, adventurous, and creative. Aquarians also don’t like to be told what to do, they’re the type to decide to go on vacation on a whim just to get their creative juices flowing.
An Aquarian appreciates culture and creativity. They see the world as a canvas waiting to be painted on in the most beautiful way possible. They can be social when they choose to, but they generally like being by themselves.
An Aquarian is also intelligent. Think of that person that’s not so good at school but has many other talents like music or art. They can be book-smart if they want to, but they know what’s truly important in life and devote their energy to understanding those things.
They’re ambitious, but it’s not forced, they choose what to care deeply about instead of letting the system control them.
Mutual Traits of Capricorns & Aquariuses
Here are some things Capricorn and Aquarius have in common.
These two know what they want and how they want it, especially when it comes to relationships. They don’t settle for less because they know their worth. You don’t have to check all their boxes, but check most of them.
Together, they’re unstoppable. They try to understand their friend’s needs and connect with them on a deeper level.
The Capricorn is grounded and doesn’t follow the next shiny thing, so you can expect loyalty, the Aquarius understands the importance of loyalty and doesn’t hurt people’s feelings no matter how flighty he or she may seem.
Capricorns and Aquarians are honest with themselves and with other people. A Capricorn or Aquarius will inform each other if any of their significant other cheats. The foundation of their friendship is honesty, and they don’t joke about it.
As I said, a Capricorn likes to climb the corporate ladder, but no matter what, they don’t cut corners. Capricorns derive joy from honest achievement and will maintain their integrity in any situation.
As for Aquarians, they like to live a clean life. They see themselves as angels that can be tainted by worldly vices. They don’t do it for achievement like Capricorns, but they live an honest life.
You’ll never remain the same after hearing a Capricorn-Aquarius conversation. These two tend to be the most intelligent in places they find themselves.
A Capricorn works extra hard to find knowledge, be it school or life, they know what they need to do to excel, and they’ll do just that.
Aquarians might not be conventionally intelligent, but they have a wealth of experiences that they can use to start conversations at the bar. Their free spirits make them very pleasant to talk to, so they make friends easily.
As friends, Capricorn and Aquarius will learn new things from each other daily. A Capricorn will keep the flighty Aquarius on the ground, and Aquarius will bring Capricorn out of their comfort zone.
They Have Quirky Fun
Capricorn and Aquarius enjoy each other’s company because they both enjoy learning and doing something productive. Sure, they can have a fun night out at the club, but they can also enjoy a study date just as well.
Although sometimes they have different ideas of fun, their interests align at many points. For example, a Capricorn enjoys shopping and eating out, while an Aquarius enjoys travel and meeting new people.
They can both decide to go on a trip where they get to travel, meet new people, shop, and eat out.
Where Capricorns & Aquariuses Disagree
A Capricorn-Aquarius friendship is mostly great, but these two have their differences. Here are some of them.
They Don’t Budge
Although Capricorns and Aquarians agree on most things, they hold certain beliefs that they’re not ready to change. This problem mostly arises from Capricorns. They’re so grounded in some of their beliefs that they won’t change for anyone or anything.
Aquarians are also stubborn. They might let Capricorn get away with a few things, but they’re not afraid to stand up for themselves when necessary. So these two signs will disagree from time to time.
They Like To Be in Control
Capricorns love to be in control of everything that goes on in their lives. They plan every part of their lives and hate when things don’t go the way they planned.
Aquarians are also independent in their own way. They hate being told what to do. So the grounded Capricorn might get irritated by the rebellious Aquarius.
One Is Static the Other Is Dynamic
You already know that Capricorns like to be in control, this earth sign likes having a foot on the ground at all times. Capricorns don’t embrace change as much as other people because they’re often scared that change leads to things being out of their control.
Aquarius, on the other hand, loves change. A change of scenery, a change of habits, and many other things. Where the Capricorn is static, the Aquarius is dynamic and willing to just go with the flow.
How To Work Out Their Differences
Now that you know what these signs can disagree on, here are some ways to work things out.
A little compromise doesn’t hurt anyone. Capricorns never want to change what they believe in, and Aquarians don’t like to be tied down by someone else’s beliefs.
These two can work out their differences by doing what they do best– communicating. Sharing how they feel about the things they’re uncomfortable with will help the other sign see things from another point of view and prevent any quarrels.
While Capricorn and Aquarius may have different approaches to life, they can still form a strong bond if they learn to respect each other.. Capricorn must learn to be more open-minded, and Aquarius must learn to be more disciplined, but if they can find a way to meet in the middle, they can form a strong and lasting bond.
Making Time for Each Other
The Capricorn is usually busy with work which is ironic because they like attention. Aquarians, on the other hand, are busy doing creative stuff, they don’t like other people holding them back from doing what they love, and this can cause a rift between these two signs. If they can make time for each other, they can have an amazing friendship.
Will the Friendship Last?
Of course, Aquarians and Capricorns know that great friends are hard to come by. They carefully choose who to be friends with, so they won’t want to ruin what they have.
They might fight a few times or even grow distant, but they never end the friendship and will remain friends for life.
These two signs are very mature, so they don’t have to force the friendship to work out. They know how to communicate well, they’re honest, and most importantly, they are loyal to each other.
There might be some road bumps along the way, but it doesn’t wreck the car these two signs are in.
