Libra - Capricorn
Libran dual airiness and cardinality are a strong contrast to Capricorn's earthiness and cardinality. BUT THEY ARE BOTH CARDINAL. THAT SHOULD BE REMEMBERED.
Capricorn has a serious and ambitious agenda. They wake each morning with their sense of leadership and authority. This animates them as they do their work of making plans, starting a new business, getting a better paying job or making a bigger mark on their community and social whirl.
The Libran, not as upwardly mobile as Capricorn, does present their cardinality (action orientation, and belief that movement is helpful) to the way in which they engage the outer world. The fact that both of these signs are cardinal means that will both be able to walk hand in hand together toward the same ends, at the same speed, with more or less the same purpose.
There is nothing more frustrating for a cardinal sign than discovering that their fellow fixed sign is tying their shoe, or stuck in some political point of view that inhibits their life style. But competition is predicted here. A race, coming out of the blocks, every day will help these two succeed and rapidly outpace their competition in the big wide world. However, it usually means one is the leader and one finishes second in the relationship. How this affects their relationship long term will be important. IT IS THIS--Who is First and Who is second that will test the long term viability of this match. In small ways, in incidental ways and in very important ways ---- both of you will have to work to make this work...Be assured this can be a great match. You are both people with goals and standards. That is promising!
Because of Mutual Attraction...Mutual Aid
Assuming there is strong attraction and love and admiration for each other, we must outline a picture of mutual aid that these two can give each other. Libra can benefit from Capricorn in the funneling and channeling of their strong minds and powerful intellects into a practical and probably business-minded avenue. Libra is often lost in contemplation and halting efforts, precisely because they are not sure where their energies are being spent.
Capricorn can improve their odds in this respect. Capricorn can benefit from Libran charm and grace. Capricorn is often funny and quiet and setting about planning their next business move, like a chess match. They can be always on the lookout for who is getting in front of them. Libra has a kind way of presenting a balanced life and world view to the more commercial and material Capricorn.
Libra and Capricorn together are probably going to transform each other. This can be grand because it takes the edge off strong personalities and brings more mellowness to types that can indeed be stressed out. The positive view here is that they can have a growth purpose to one another, and a moderated style that both can bring to their worlds This is truly positive.
Libra can teach Capricorn a bit about romance. Capricorn’s heart in romance is genuine and serious and committed. This is a combination that lends harmony and wholesomeness to their love.
Capricorn’s dignity and self control can meet Libran justice on the field of conflict, and both will add a sense of resolution and productiveness to their argumentative challenges. There can also be real forward movement in their quest for the resolution of their competitive challenges.
Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Libran love of elegance can tell the Capricorn to come home early and experience the nice things of life. Boredom should not be a problem for these two cardinal signs.
Keep Up The Interest Graph:
Capricorn will see that keeping up the interest will be important. Libra can show them some catalogues that will help the both of them with travel plans or new social settings.
Seven Year Itchiness:
There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Cardinal types will both be on the move – continuously. With infidelity this is a double edged sword. It means they will be busy, but it also means they will be out there on the move. Competition will keep them focused on work. Love will keep them together.
RATING: ASTROCOMPATIBILITY RATING: 65% Positive Long Term - 50% Short Term. The first time they meet may not be all fireworks on the 4th of July, but a mellow and elegant meeting of the minds could lead them to a union that could potentially be life affirming. These are strong souls in a life-long effort together. Who gives up and who gives in? The focus should be on the great benefits that come from the adaptation of transformation.
Both of You Believe in Dignity at Work

Well. Libra, they have to be attracted to you. You have to actually have some romantic interest. These readings apply to at least a middling romantic interest. Until the shy Capricorn actually dates you, you really can't be sure of his level of interest. Libra loves to think of themselves as beautiful and appealing, and you are; but this may not work because you two don't work.

I have a Capricorn "friend" & i don't think it's true. Im a Libra. Our relationship is boring me to tears. My Cap is shy & doesn't take control at all. But it is true that we have differentes & similarities that makes us close & interested in each other. But now I've known him for a month & he hasn't ask me out. Maybe because he's a Cap & doesn't want make a decision or im just being an impatient Libra & need to give him time. It's complicated. I don't know about Libra & Caps being a great match(_ _ )...

I think this is accurate. I think love is the thing that keep us together. i think we are better lovers and friends. I would like to know if it is worth it in the long term with all the differences?
