  1. The major similarity between Taurus and Capricorn is that they are both earth signs along with Virgo. They are the three earth signs. Earth signs tend to get along well because they share very similar traits.


  1. Both signs are feminine/passive signs. This means that they both react to situations in the same way or in similar ways. This can be very convenient when dealing with external issues together however it can become a problem when there’s an issue between the signs. This can lead to passive-aggressive behavior.


Taurus and Capricorn are both ruled by very different planets. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn while Taurus is ruled by Venus. In Roman mythology, Saturn is a very orderly, methodical god. Saturn is the god of periodic renewal. This is one of the reasons why Capricorn is a cardinal sign, it signifies the change of seasons. Saturn prioritizes plenty and peace, wealth and agriculture, social order, and liberation. Venus on the other hand is the god of love, fertility, sex, and beauty. They are both ruled by vastly different planets and this is where the differences are most prominent.


Now that we’ve discussed what makes them different and what makes them similar, we can now explore how compatible they are. We’ll be discussing this on three levels; business, friendship, and romance.

  1. Business – In business, Taurus and Capricorn can be quite the ruthless match. Capricorn’s determined and ambitious nature coupled with Taurus’s persistence and attention to detail is a match made in heaven for business-related pursuits. As long as both parties are on the same page, they are virtually unstoppable. Capricorn will need to watch out for pride while Taurus will need to know the difference between stubbornness and persistence.
  2. Friendships – For friendships, Taurus and Capricorn will have a simple, quiet, and sincere friendship. Due to their similar conservative nature, there may be problems with communication. Commitment is highly valued in a Capricorn-Taurus friendship.
  3. Romance – For a long-term romantic relationship, there have to be boundaries separating work and personal life, or else the relationship may differ. This match often has the same perspective of finance, home, family, security, and loyalty. Taurus’s possessive nature soothes Capricorns need for reassurance. All in all, this is a very safe and fulfilling match.
