The Libra man is an idealist, while the Capricorn woman is a pragmatist through and through. Although both very intelligent individuals, it’s not easy for this air/earth couple to see eye to eye long enough to sustain a relationship. Possible, yes, but Libra man Capricorn woman compatibility has to overcome a lot of issues along the way.
It’s not that the couple aren’t attracted to one another – they certainly are. The Capricorn woman is impressed with the Libra man’s social charms and his easy, effortless nature. He is attracted to her sense of inner dignity and wisdom, and both partners share a love of the finer things in life. In fact, this can be quite a socially climbing partnership with both couples appreciating the contribution the other makes to their materially successful lives.
But for true love to thrive, Libra man Capricorn woman needs to be more than just a materialistic or convenient relationship. There’s not much of a physical bond between these two, because although the Capricorn woman is an earthy, sensual woman, she never quite relaxes with the distracted, slightly emotionally aloof Libra man. He’s more interested in talking than in heading to the bedroom, and that’s fine with her while she feels not quite at ease, so it’s a miracle if they ever make it as far as a sex life to begin with.
It’s not only in the bedroom that a fundamental incompatibility shows up, either. The Libra man and the Capricorn woman disagree on almost everything. From money (he spends, she most certainly does not) to friendships (he parties, she does not) and even to parenting (he loves the kids, but lets them do their own thing, while she imposes a will of iron) – there really aren’t many shared values between them, and so there’s little to build a lifetime’s foundation upon. Libra man Capricorn woman compatibility works well in terms of presenting a united, glamorous front, but behind the scenes there’s a lot of emotional distance.
It doesn’t help that neither partner is very good at dealing with their own emotions. The airy Libra man keeps his emotional cool and is in denial about his deeper feelings. The earthy Capricorn woman acknowledges her feelings, but keeps them under strict control and rarely listens to her intuition, preferring her logic at all times. This is a shame, because if they tried, the couple could learn a lot from each other. The Capricorn woman could learn to verbalize things more and to give in to a romantic urge now and then, while the Libra man could learn to be more grounded and focused instead of scattering his energies. Alas, Libra man Capricorn woman compatibility rarely makes it far enough for the couple to acknowledge that they can teach each other anything.
Of course any relationship combination can work and if this couple is genuinely in love, they will keep trying. It’s never going to easy though. There is simply too little common ground here. The Libra man’s indecisiveness will irritate the Capricorn woman, while her relentless focus will leave the Libra man wondering if he’s ever going to have fun again. It can be quite a depressive relationship for both partners, despite their good will in trying to make it work.
