Capricon-Friendship Compatibility- Capricorn and Sagittarius

Capricorn and Sagittarius

When Sagittarius and Capricorn form a friendship, they may at first think they have nothing to talk about and cannot benefit from the other. In many ways, Sagittarius and Capricorn are opposites: Sagittarius is free-flowing, driven by whim, seeking knowledge for its own sake, always jumping into new things, and they're usually impatient. Capricorn is detail-oriented and quiet, even shy, always mindful of the next goal. The incongruity of Sagittarius and Capricorn can actually make their friendship more valuable in the long run, since each can learn so much from the other.

Early on, Sagittarius and Capricorn may see nothing in each other but their faults. Sagittarius may seem undisciplined, and Capricorn may seem pompous and boring. Once they stop learning about each other's faults nd begin focusing on their strengths, they'll discover that they have much to offer one another. Sagittarius teaches Capricorn about enjoyment and adventure, about the freedom that is often missing in Capricorn's life. Capricorn teaches Sagittarius patience and attention to detail, the knowledge that the little things are important, and helps them focus their erratic energy. Sagittarius may feel Capricorn is overly responsible, but they will teach their friend to take things less seriously. Capricorn may accuse Sagittarius of being ill-mannered and impulsive but can teach them to be polite and refined.

Sagittarius is ruled by the Planet Jupiter, and Capricorn follows the Planet Saturn. Jupiter is about higher learning, philosophy, expansion of knowledge and a good luck that sometimes leads to excess. Saturn is the ruler of hard work, assiduousness, ambition and responsibility. Their influences on one another can be quite beneficial and bring out the best aspects of each other.

Both Signs need to take the time to see the value of their friend's approach; Sagittarius can teach Capricorn to be more spontaneous, at the same time gaining stability from Capricorn's sensible take on life.

Sagittarius is a Fire Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Sagittarius initiates ideas from philosophical visualization, while Capricorn is more practical. Capricorn will think through the benefit of their activities, whereas Sagittarius loves to explore just for their own personal satisfaction. Although these friends may have their difficulties that stem from their diverse ethics, when they do spend time together, their well-rounded, complementary approaches means they'll enjoy the escape each provides from their own identities.

Sagittarius is a Mutable Sign, and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. Sagittarius doesn't need to be the leader or motivating force; when they are given a good idea and a way to participate, they enjoy doing their part. Capricorn, on the other hand, is the one who comes up with the ideas and assigns roles. Their lack of conflict over roles in their friendship helps Sagittarius and Capricorn get things done with little argument.

The best aspect of the Sagittarius-Capricorn friendship is how much they end up teaching each other. Once they overcome their initial reluctance to their connection, this pair will realize that they have a lot to offer one another. Their personalities, different in so many ways, makes theirs a highly complementary friendship.
