When two lusty earth signs, the slow and steady bull, and the sure-footed goat, come together, expect a winning combination that is primed to go the distance. This earthly pair both like the finer things in life, and they are also natural accumulators, meaning that they like material comforts and enjoy nothing more than feathering their nests.
Both the Taurus woman and Capricorn man have a strong work ethic, which will foster mutual respect between them as they each admire the other’s hard work. They will also enjoy helping each other to spend this hard earned cash, and while both are extremely sharp when it comes to money matters, they both also have a knack of enjoying life’s pleasures a little too much. When it comes to shared values, particularly family matters, this pair couldn’t be more on the same page. Marriage, children, a nice house, commitment, and security, these two want it all worked out so that there is nothing left to do other than live their domestic dream every day.
Emotionally, these two are sweetly in tune. Romance doesn’t particularly drive either of them, as they are both incredibly practical, as earth signs always are. That said they both like to spoil and be spoilt at the appropriate time, such as birthdays, Valentine’s Day, and other occasions. This means that you shouldn’t expect great romantic gestures from either a Taurus woman or a Capricorn man, but you can expect them to take care of you when the time is right.
Both the Taurus woman and the Capricorn man are pretty passionate individuals, and while they may not be fans of public displays of affection, behind closed doors they can be surprising when it comes to their sensuality and sexual desires. Both view sex as an essential part of their relationship, and one that goes hand in hand with the other more staid promises they made to each other such as reliability and commitment. Taurus women love to be taken care of and provided for, and this extends very much to the bedroom. The Taurus woman wants to know that she is with a man who will fulfill all his duties as her lover, and in this case, the Capricorn man is the perfect mate to promise regular lovemaking. This pair will also flourish between the sheets as both have a very practical and earthy view towards sex, making them straightforward lovers who don?t hold anything back!
What to expect on a first date:
The Capricorn man:
The Capricorn man is above all a robust and serious life partner, but he is unlikely to take you out skydiving or swimming with sharks on a date. Much more likely, will be a fine evening at a restaurant that he knows well or has researched in advance, that makes sure that everything is as pleasant and harmonious as it can be.
The Taurus woman:
A Taurus woman is usually an excellent first date and will have a host of witty stories with which to dazzle her prospective partner. She will dress well, wear intoxicating perfume, and generally do all she can to make a splendid first impression, as she is a natural diplomat to whom manners and poise are all important attributes.
The biggest relationship pro here is how in tune this pair of earth signs are. They value the same things such as family and stability but are also both prepared to work hard to make this a reality. Once this has happened, they are also prepared to help their partner spend their mutual paycheck, so a night out for a Taurus woman and Capricorn man can end up being quite the occasion. Think of this more in terms of good food and wine rather than dancing on tables, however, and both signs like nothing more than cuddling up on the sofa and playing house. A beautiful house that they have worked hard to build together.
The shared appreciation of all of life’s pleasures is indeed a bonding area for this couple, but although these are both earth signs, Taurus is ruled by indulgent Venu, and Capricorn by the more conservative Saturn. It is at this point that things can go awry for this pair, as the Taurus woman lives in the moment, whereas the Capricorn man is worried about the future and the past, spiriting money away for a rainy day that they are sure will come soon. This couple are also fiercely possessive, as they invest time and hard work in order to indulge their materialistic streak, and as such guard their possessions rigidly and are not prone to sharing. If the Taurus woman thinks that the Capricorn man is coveting something that is hers, or vice-versa, it can lead to a stalemate where neither party wants to play nice.
Is the relationship likely to last?
This is a pairing that is definitely destined to stay the course. The main reason for this being that these two want the same things out of life. They share the same values regarding family and commitment, and they are also happy being couch potatoes whose idea of a fun night is cooking a nice dinner together and watching a movie. Once committed to each other, and when they are both suitably convinced that their partner is in this for the long haul, it will take a lot to break up their well-balanced union.
