This is quite likely to be an old fashioned partnership, with gender roles clearly defined (regardless which partner is which gender) and a convention sort of lifestyle.
Tradition is important to Cancer, and Capricorn compatibility hinges upon a certain sort of sentimentality too.
Unless they have a less serious sign in their birth chart, they just cannot take anyone who does not take their money matters seriously. Even if you are in a non-traditional union, some type of long-established roles and values must be present in your relationship for a Capricorn to function. But a Capricorn’s prudence will prevent you from even seeing how they are in a relationship, as they tend to enter commitment at a very slow pace, which brings me to my next point. But in the rare instances where I happen to connect with one, I remember one key thing: to grant them space to think things through—no matter how quick I may be to make decisions.
Capricorns place a heavy emphasis on romance and relationships.
This sign is heavily reliant on stability, and for everyone, that usually means having some type of steady stream of income.
It won’t, however, be the most exciting of partnerships, and the couple could suffer over the long term from a lack of dynamism.
So before you claim to want to lock down a Capricorn, make sure they’re worth it, because you’re going to put in time and work. This is an Earth sign, so they need to see consistency and stability first before they fall. Unlike the lovable Libra, which tends to live life pretty freely, Capricorns worry about a lot of things.
Their love of stability and convention makes them panic when things change.
During happy times, however, Cancer’s emotional depths can be refreshing to the somewhat staid Capricorn, who in turn can help to stabilise Cancer when all that emotional water becomes too choppy to bear.
For Capricorn and Cancer, compatibility can be great for mutual personal growth, if both partners are willing to accept that they have much to learn.
