Structure means everything to this couple. They will understand each other’s need for a rock-solid partnership and will work hard to build one. The downside is that their lives together will become rigid if they don’t make an effort to shake things up.
Venus in Capricorn relates to others through her consistent ambition. Although Capricorn’s boundaries may inhibit Venus’s expression of love, she is one of the most faithful partners around (once she finds the right one, of course). The right lover is essential; he must share her drive for success or be able to provide a lifestyle that reflects this. Relationships are serious business for Ms. Capricorn. She may play the game of love with calculation, but she’s not interested in light flirtations.
Mars in Capricorn plays to win. Serious and a tad uptight, his sober exterior masks an earthy lover who relaxes with the right partner. He won’t pursue just anyone; sex is serious business and his driving ambition to be the best can also show up in the bedroom. His lover won’t have to worry about competing with others, but she will have to compete with his career. Mr. Capricorn’s ambitions will often take precedence over emotions.
These two will understand each other immediately. Ms. Capricorn won’t complain when Mr. Capricorn spends long hours at the office. She’ll encourage him and will offer strategic pointers on how to navigate workplace politics. They’ll admire and support each other as they map out every detail of their relationship’s future.
While stability is not an issue, this couple needs to ensure that the juice does not get sucked out of their relationship. Neither are comfortable with full-on expressions of emotion, and they will feel safe in a partnership where reticence is the rule. But they might try to inject some spontaneity (even if this means looking foolish) and confront their mutual fear of being rejected. Otherwise, what started out as a romantic partnership could atrophy into a business deal.
