Famous Libra-Capricorn Couples: Marcelo Mastroianni and Faye Dunaway, Lenny Bruce and Faye Dunaway, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett.
This relationship is going to be about status, respectability, special conventionality, and success. That’s why these two choose one another. If this sounds businesslike, the basis of all marriages is actually a contract, and it is sometimes good to look at it that way upfront. These two people are both inclined to read the fine print before signing on the dotted line, which is why each should make sure — going in to it — that they have cleaned up your past and are as reputable as they represent themselves to be.
How to Attract a Libra Man as a Capricorn Woman: Impress him with your social skills. Follow the rules to the T, because if he’s interested in you, he’s interested in an old-fashioned relationship — specifically marriage. If you are not the most titillating conversationalist alive, your best bet at being interesting is to turn the conversation to him and his career and other responsibilities that you might help him with some day. Yes, I know you are dying to, but it is not considered polite to dig out of someone what kind of a paycheck they bring home each month. You will just have to use your well-honed radar for such matters.
How to Attract a Capricorn Woman as a Libra Man: You should definitely try to impress her or allude to future success, such as the kind of house you would like to buy her some day, or throw in a few designer names when you mention an upcoming shopping trip. Your dates must be well-planned and well-executed. You must be on time, you must have had your car recently detailed, your GPS system should be up-to-date and working well (in the background), you should chose an impressive venue (such as dinner at a 4 or 5-star restaurant) but in an intermediate price range. You, yourself, should put special care into your appearance. Sports clothes are nice. Perhaps a designer belt. By all means, carefully pressed pants — a look of understated elegance. If this sounds oppressive, get out now.
Degree of Romance: These two play by the rules so there will be all the trappings of romance. She will insist on it in her dogged way, but he’s inclined in that direction anyway. She may expect her Libra man to observe all holidays and her birthday, including dotting the Is and crossing the Ts. He is probably the one man in the zodiac who will have the gift picked out ahead of time and present it beautifully gift-wrapped in an appropriate setting. If it doesn’t meet your expensive taste, Capricorn, at least try and appreciate the romance behind it. Capricorn may slip a wild card in the deck as she suddenly demands a romantic “token” for any special privileges granted.
Degree of Passion: It’s hard to get passionate with a Capricorn, but Libra may try from time-to-time. Try not to set up the relationship on this basis. Your friends will probably think it sounds very boring — and it is — but you guys are in it for the long-term benefits.
Degree of Friendship: Sometimes this relationship feels like a friendship because it can fall into civility rather than rapport.
Degree of Marriage: This makes a great marriage in two situations: a first marriage that is upwardly mobile and success-bound or a second marriage when the first marriage was headstrong and impulsive. It causes you to come to your senses. The combination of Libra and Capricorn is a very sensible combination.
Progression of Relationship: The relationship will progress logically according to Capricorn’s understanding. These are two cardinal signs, but Capricorn will really have the upper-hand. She will probably extract an agenda from him early-on. Mr. Libra will have to meet her expectations to advance around the bases. If he can’t “cut it,” he’d be better off getting out early and having some fun with someone who can appreciate his other good qualities.
Sex: In this relationship, sex can be used like a subway token — to get from one place to another. Oddly, both partners agree to this symbolic representation and are willing to exchange spontaneity, and even love, for a steady supply of a scarce commodity. Neither one would dream of looking elsewhere if there is a reasonable supply at hand.
When It’s Over: It’s over when Capricorn has had enough. It may be that he didn’t get far enough in life fast enough to suit her, or perhaps he became distant and they drifted apart. The indecisiveness comes up with Libras when they are faced with major life decisions, so Capricorn will have to pull the plug. She will do so in the most business-like manner. Years later Libra will still be trying to figure out how he might have made it work, while Capricorn goes searching for the good things in life (duh).
