Important traits of a Capricorn man in relation to an Aries woman
A Capricorn man takes life very seriously. He is the stereotypical businessman. Conservative, frugal, and sometimes miserly, he is always aware of his financial situation and social status and is constantly trying to improve both. Because of his sheer determination and capacity for hard work, he usually does rise above the station he was born to.
While a Capricorn man has the capacity for love like any other man, he rarely will marry just for love. He wants a wife who will help him advance socially. Additionally, he is very conservative when it comes to relationships. He wants to be able to devote himself to his career, and he wants a wife who will care for home and hearth and one who will entertain and be a good hostess.
Important traits of an Aries woman in relation to a Capricorn man
An Aries woman has many good qualities, however, she is not very domestic, and she often chafes at traditional feminine gender roles. When she was a child, she played with toy trucks rather than dolls. She is strong, honorable, and hard-working. On the other hand, she is impulsive, and she does not want to take the time to consider and plan. When she gets an idea, she wants to act on it immediately, and the last thing she wants to do is carefully work through the pros and cons and think through the consequences.
When it comes to dating and relationships, an Aries woman needs a very particular kind of man. She needs one who is strong enough to earn her respect. On the other hand, she also needs a man who will let her be herself and not try to control her or force her to be who she is not. Such a man can be hard to find. Men who are strong enough for her tend to also want to be in control of their relationships. On the other hand, men who do not vie with her for control can appear as weak in her eyes.
Once she does fall in love, however, an Aries woman will be loyal and devoted, and she will do what it takes to make a relationship work.
Capricorn man, Aries woman: Dating and early stages of the relationship
An Aries woman will usually find a Capricorn man more attractive than he will find her. She will admire his strength, ambition, and capacity for hard work. On the other hand, she will be annoyed with his conservative manner and rather cold demeanor. The tension between attraction and annoyance will make it hard for her to keep him out of her mind.
A Capricorn man will generally have a lot of respect for an Aries woman. She is competent and hardworking. He also may very well find her physically attractive. On the other hand, a Capricorn man will never date based on physical attraction alone. He thinks and plans for the future, and she will probably not fit his concept of a perfect wife for him. On the other hand, if she has money or is of a higher social status than him, he may consider her.
Capricorn man, Aries woman: Sexual compatibility
Despite their differences, a Capricorn man and Aries woman will enjoy sex together. Despite his apparent coldness, a Capricorn man can be quite sensual in the bedroom. For her part, an Aries woman is extremely passionate. The tension between them will create heat and sexual tension, which will enhance their sex life.
Capricorn man, Aries woman: Marriage and family life
A marriage between a Capricorn man and Aries woman is a tricky one. Whether it will work will depend on how flexible he is willing to be with respect to his expectations. An Aries woman rarely has much interest in home and hearth. In former times, when society was different, she may have been forced into that role. In that case, being an Aries, she would have done the best she could to make it work. Now, when there are many more choices for her, she will want to avail herself of them.
If a Capricorn man is willing to accept her as she is, they will do fine together. If not, their marriage will be nothing but a power struggle and one conflict after another.
One of the things that will help, particularly if they both work outside the home, is that they are very likely to do well financially. If so, they will probably be able to afford to hire someone to help around the house, or if nothing else, buy labor saving devices. A Capricorn man may be reluctant to spend the money on such things, but it will help reduce the potential friction in the marriage.
A Capricorn man and Aries woman will be extremely strict parents. They will have high standards and expect their children to meet or surpass them. It may be a struggle for children of average abilities to grow up in such a household. A Capricorn man will listen to parenting advice, however, which may help him to relax a little with respect to his expectations.
Capricorn man, Aries woman: Working together
In some ways, a Capricorn man and Aries woman can work very well together. They have the potential to balance each other. A Capricorn man has the ability to strategize and plan for the future, and an Aries woman has the ability to seize opportunities in the moment and to take risks. Logically, they should complement each other and be a great team.
The problem is that they may not acknowledge the talents and the strengths of the other. The Aries woman may see the careful planning of the Capricorn man as stodgy, dull, and plodding. Likewise, the Capricorn man may see the risk-taking of the Aries woman as impulsive, reckless, and irresponsible.
The reality of the situation is that for a business venture to succeed, there needs to be both careful planning and the ability to take risks and seize opportunities as they come. If they combine their skills and work with each other rather than against each other, there is very little that they can not accomplish as a team. The key is for them to learn to respect each other’s gifts and talents.
Typical fights between a Capricorn man and an Aries woman and how to resolve them
There is a high potential for conflict between a Capricorn man and Aries woman. They will fight about many different things, but the real issue will always be the same.
Both Capricorn and Aries are Cardinal Signs. These are the signs of the zodiac that begin each season, and they like to make change and be in control. Capricorn is Cardinal Earth and Aries is Cardinal Fire, and Earth and Fire do not mix very well. The Capricorn man is focused on practicalities, and from that standpoint, he is often right about what they should do. The Aries woman is focused on passion and energy. While it might make sense to make lists and to plan ahead, these activities are very boring for her. Both of them will think that they are right, which will only fuel their conflict.
It will help if the Capricorn man can learn to see that her position is more practical than he realizes. The nature of Aries is such that she will have bursts of great energy and enthusiasm. The trouble is that these bursts do not last very long. An Aries is a sprinter, not a long-distance runner. When these bursts of energy come, she needs to seize them or else they will go away. She is not being irresponsible. She is working with her own nature and temperament. If he can see that and respect it, he will be able to understand her position and let her do things in her own way. This will go a long way in terms of easing the tensions between them.

As a Capricorn man I love the most Taurus and Aries women. Don`t know why exactly this match. When I meet a girl who is really nice to me, I figure out then that she is from the end of March, April or the beginning of May. All those ladies I met are amazing on the same level.

I’m an Aries woman and dating a Capricorn man and it’s the worst relationship I’ve ever had. I’m loyal and fully committed but I get accused of anything and everything. We always fight everyday it’s always something. He’s so jealous and always wants to control my every move. I’m just trying to go to the grocery store and it’s a whole problem. We have nothing in common. It’s just a rollercoaster that never stops!!

@Michelle, omg same here, I'm an aries, he's a cap, he was so loving and emotional and intensely love bombed me at first and proposed within 5 weeks, once I said yes he immediately became unbelievably cold, controlling and critical, compares me to other women, went from constant loving calls and texts every day and five hour calls to one text a day, belittles me, controlls what I eat, wear and how MY HOUSE looks, has thrown loads of my things away and I never try to change him, if I speak against any of this he tells me I'm making it up, I'm crazy and then gives me the silent treatment for days.

@Michelle, I am an Aries woman married to a Capricorn man for 16 years this July! The main thing with us is the whole control thing. Our animal signs both have horns so naturally we butt heads in so many ways and areas. So what I really found that worked with the whole trust thing was to not budge on my value of integrity and loyalty to the relationship, regardless of what he thought, I knew my truth and I knew that he was my soulmate and I would never dream of cheating with anyone else. Besides... Wicked shags and I bet the sex is unbelievable which was one of the reasons I couldn't stay away lol. So on our Aries part we have to stand firm in that aspect. Once he sees how serious you are he will let go more and more of that control I promise. They are stubborn like us sometimes and the jealousy is natural because you're prolly the hottest person he's ever been with... Ever! So he's afraid of losing you and his insecurities contribute to the jealousy and control. So just boost his confidence and assure him that u are the loyal Aries we know you are and he will back off. 16 years in, and I can drive myself to the store and wherever else I need to go as I please without my babysitter nagging my every love or calling every 10 minutes lol. Good luck

@Samuel Drake, as a leo woman with a capricorn man. The problem is capricorns always try to control other ppl but no one can control a capricorn. I think the thought process you guys have can be quite unfair. If she accepts you and willing to work through whatever she may not like abt you and she doesnt try to change you, then dont change her. She probabaly crying bc she feel your being unfair, like how come she has to change all these things when she accepts you and doesnt try to make you change anything. Your probably hurting her feelings and making her feel well do you even really love me? Love is about accepting a person for who they are flaws and all. You cant change anyone... I bet the the things you argue abt is so tiny like she may not clean up enough and if thats the case, on the days she dont feel like cleaning, YOU DO IT. Capricorn men want there women to be perfect when they are FAR from it. One thing I can say is I try to compromise with my capricorn but I only started compromising once he started to practice what he preached to me. Everything he was expecting me to do, I kind of had to see him do it. He had to change as well, it wasnt a one sided thing. Maybe ask her what you need to change as well. Stop getting on her and your no better.
