Famous Aquarius-Capricorn Couples: Carla Bruni-Nicholas Sarkozy, Helena Christensen-Michael Hutchence, Loretta Young-Clark Gable, Christy Turlington-Edward Burns, Ali Wentworth (actress) – George Stephanopolous. [thanks, Vero]
The Aquarius man and Capricorn woman couple falls into the archetypal Greek realm of logos and eros. Aquarius is “the word” and Capricorn is “the word made flesh.” Together they make the perfect pair. Aquarius is the visionary, master-minding in the conceptual range of pure archetype. Capricorn will draw the vision down into reality and ground it with commitment and structure. They are mysteriously drawn to each other because of this hidden bond; each is only half without the other. Capricorn brings out the visionary aspiration of the Aquarius because she has the potential of making it real.
How to Attract a Capricorn Woman as an Aquarius Man: If you are an Aquarius man trying to attract a Capricorn woman, it actually helps if you have your mind on other things. She expects you to be tripping out in the universe and she is eager to help you deal with the reality of people, places and things, while your inclination is to stay with forms and ideals. You are the architect for her building. Because of this connection, your first conversations may be rather peculiar and abstract. You may now know what you are fishing for in each other. The more you talk to her, the more inspired you will become until you realize that it is her energy that is giving you the extra realm of possibilities that suddenly becomes obvious to you. It doesn’t even matter if she understands what you are talking about; it’s all her energy.
How to Attract an Aquarius Man as a Capricorn Woman: If you’re a Capricorn woman trying to attract an Aquarius man, what you need to do is to get interested in what interests him. Your attraction to him will be based on your potential ability to ground his vision. He is attracted to your practical nature and your substance as a woman. Unlike other men who may find you a little boring or staid, you are exactly what this man is looking for. Ask practical questions. Question everything. Be the ladder that Jack in the Beanstalk climbs down to reach the earth. You also need to be tolerant of his eccentricities. It doesn’t matter if he’s smarter than you are. What he’s looking for is a sounding board. Just talking to you helps him straighten out his thinking.
Degree of Romance: This combination can be very sweet in its attempt at being romantic. Neither sign is particularly gifted with the Romantic Gene, but for some reason when they get together, they start to feel like they should be. Each will be very tolerant of the other’s attempts at romanticism, rudimentary as they are. Each will appreciate the attempt to include romanticism on the menu of an otherwise pretty strict diet.
Degree of Passion: The Aquarius man seems to feel the need to present passion at times but really it is not necessary and it isn’t well-conveyed by an air sign. Air signs like Aquarius are meant to be detached, cool, logical and even distant in their relations with people and feelings. It’s better to stick with what you know. Aquarius is a very loyal sign, although only around half the time. Loyalty will have to pass for passion with the Aquarius. It won’t make any difference to the Capricorn woman who does not give a feelings-value to passion.
Degree of Friendship: The Capricorn woman and Aquarius man can be splendid friends. They collaborate well together. They have an equal degree of commitment, intelligence, and scope of understanding. They both think The Big Picture. They like working with large-scale models. They have leadership styles unique to them, and they enjoy being productive. They will be more challenged if they try to build a friendship on leisure, as neither is particularly leisure-oriented. They may very well make the perfect team.
Degree of Marriage: The Aquarius man and Capricorn woman is a great combination for marriage. If they are attracted to one another, it is on a serious wavelength of productivity and commitment. They respect one another for their intelligence and integrity. They learn to rely on one another for results. They tend to focus on the overall result rather than the details, which is something they have in common as well. For something with as big a scope and longevity as the idealized, committed, marriage partnership, these two have what it takes to bring it home. Aquarius keeps drafting new plans as times change. Capricorn keeps bringing them back to the drawing board when they don’t fit reality any more. Capricorn woman and Aquarius man is a real winner.
Progression of Relationship: The relationship will move along at a steady pace. Both signs are likely busy with other things and only able to meet once or twice a week. They will tend to pass that meeting with quality time. The level of conversation will be quite high. They will focus immediately on future goals, and begin to dovetail their characteristics together as a team. Each meeting will seem to be the natural outgrowth of the one before. Capricorn is cautious, but Aquarius can be cautious too. They are likely to move slowly but surely toward a shared teamwork effort. This is one relationship where the woman is absolutely equal to the man in input and responsibility.
Sex: Sex will have a more prosaic dimension with this combination than with any other involving Aquarius. For some reason he is much more grounded with a Capricorn woman. She brings out his more conservative nature. He is likely to supply a steady supply of sex at particular intervals. This is responding to her needs as well as his. There will be little variety in the love-making. It is best looked at as a means of communication and the way to stay in touch with each other’s vibes.
When It’s Over: It’s over when Aquarius has enough. He does not lose his temper easily but if something happens that cools him off, he may disintegrate into cold very rapidly and it will be very difficult to warm him up again, and you will see the famous closed mind of the Aquarius. She will feel locked out and confused because he has never failed to listen to her before, but his mind will be made up, and there is no changing it.
