Aries and Capricorn: partnership, friendship, and love
This is a very complicated combination because the degree of compatibility is rather low so that both characters have to compromise and invest a lot in order to make the relationship work due to the large character differences. This is also due to their ruling planets, Mars and Saturn, as they are diametrically opposed forces.
Aries tend to be extroverted, confident, and impulsive, and typically do not take criticism well; while Capricorns are more prone to introverts and are more practical, conservative, and even more pessimistic. You approach relationships and life itself very methodically and ideally have already carefully planned all milestones for the next few decades, while Aries is drawn to the thrill of the unknown. Capricorns value fairness, but are also very strict and serious so that an Aries can feel partially condemned by his partner.
It is often difficult for Capricorns to fully indulge in a relationship because they have to feel very secure in their partner to do so. A complicated endeavor, because although they envy and admire the energy and optimism of Aries, the Capricorns find it difficult to deal with his urge for freedom. Aries need variety and are always on the lookout for new experiences and impressions so that they can easily feel trapped in a relationship with a Capricorn. This urge for freedom and variety can cause Aries to become bored in a relationship with a Capricorn, who is much slower on life.

What is Compatible?
However, one area where both signs are very compatible is work. The hardworking nature and excellent leadership skills of Capricorn are superbly complemented by the ambition and talent of Aries, so a business relationship between the two signs has a better chance of success than a romantic relationship.
This combination also creates difficulties in bed, because while Aries love to experiment and are very open-minded, Capricorns tend to be more conservative. They also find it difficult to let themselves go during sex. In order to have a satisfying intimate life, Aries must be understanding and patient, and Capricorn must learn to let go and indulge in lust.
Capricorns born between January 2nd and 10th are most likely to be compatible with an Aries because the presence of Venus makes it easier for them to be loving and to express their feelings. While Aries born between April 10 and April 20 have higher chances of having a successful relationship with a Capricorn. In any case, it is a very difficult combination.
