If there are any two horoscope signs that seem destined to hit it off, it would be the Capricorn and the Taurus.
Interestingly enough, ideal matches on paper often don’t pan out in real life.
This happens all the time. You should not be surprised. Things that seem to make sense in theory don’t really make all that much sense when it comes to practical reality.
There is a lot going for the Capricorn woman and Taurus man in terms of romantic compatibility. They tend to look at things in the same way; they tend to have the same values; they tend to have the same coping mechanisms.
However, there are differences regarding these signs and how they approach things. So while it may make sense theoretically, you would be surprised as to how incompatible they may turn out in real life.
Capricorn and Taurus are Solid Earth Signs
One key feature that the Capricorn woman and Taurus man share when it comes to love compatibility is that they are solid earth signs. They are “of the earth” and they have a materialist slant to them.
What do I mean by materialist slant?
I do not mean that they are necessarily materialistic, although the Capricorn woman and the Capricorn man for that matter could be materialistic.
By materialist, I’m talking about they look at the world not in terms of ideas or in terms of emotions; they look at the world in terms of material. In other words, they look at life as a trial to become comfortable.
They look at life as a process where one accumulates possessions so one can have the comforts that a person needs, and one can gain some form of security.
A materialist person looks at money, a great job, and financial security as crucial for establishing bedrock of security that can support other aspects of life. We all have different aspects. We all have different needs. As we take care of our basic needs, like food, lovemaking, shelter, our needs change and we go on to a higher level of need.
The Capricorn is more than content to focus on the basic needs and equate that with higher needs. As you can probably already tell, if left undeveloped this can lead to all sorts of problems, just like I often see in relationships between Capricorn women and Libra men.
This negative cycle can also play out when it comes to Capricorn woman and Taurus man love compatibility.
A Capricorn Woman Has to Look Good for Her Taurus Man
A Capricorn woman and a Taurus man can hit it off if the Capricorn woman looks good. If there is one thing true about the Taurus man generally, it is that he looks for good-looking people. Why? The Taurus man generally is very presentable, if not downright good-looking.
He is a materialist and he wants people to look good. He wants to feel good around them, and like it or not, he feels better when you look great. Moreover, he feels better about himself and what he has accomplished in his life when you make him look good. The whole concept of a trophy wife definitely describes the Taurus man.
This is one key of Capricorn woman and Taurus man love compatibility that many Capricorn women don’t get. They think that as long as they are driven in their careers, as long as they are solid in their business, and as long as they are very presentable in terms of financial security, they are fine with their Taurus man.
You still have to look good. It’s not enough that you are pulling down $200,000 a year; it’s not enough that you went to a great college; it’s not enough that you bring a lot of prestige to your Taurus man. You still have to look good. That’s just the key rule of the game for Capricorn woman and Taurus man love compatibility.
A Taurus Man Has to Bring Home the Bacon
Taurus man cannot just sit on his behind and have his Capricorn woman make that money. The Capricorn woman can make money, or at least focus on make money.
A Capricorn woman is very good at pushing her man to be driven enough so that their family can enjoy the level of material abundance that the Capricorn woman feels that the family deserves.
This can rub undeveloped Taurus men the wrong way. It would be nice in the minds of Taurus men if the Capricorn woman just becomes the breadwinner of the relationship.
The Capricorn woman is not having any of that. It’s a big issue with her if she is making more money than you, because as a solid earth sign, she is focused on equating the material with the emotional.
If you are not making more money than her, then you look flawed in her mind.
You might be a good emotional provider; you might be very tender, gentle, and kind. That’s all well and good, but in her mind, that’s not enough. This is a crucial point to understand when discussing Capricorn woman and Taurus man love compatibility.
Don’t get me wrong. They can hit it off really well. They can be physically attracted to each other. Just like with any other type of attraction and relationship based on the horoscope, starting is not the problem. It’s maintaining the relationship that can be an issue.
A Taurus man, in other words, cannot be lazy or irresponsible around the Capricorn woman. The Capricorn woman will push him to change, or he’s going to hit the exit. This is a crucial factor in Capricorn woman and Taurus man love compatibility.
If you are a Taurus man reading this, that Capricorn woman in your life might be the game changer in your life. That person might push you up and forward or just leave you. It’s your choice how you react and develop in such a relationship.
Choose wisely Taurus!
