Capricorn zodiac sign imageCapricorn compatibility: Will I be compatible with a Capricorn man or Capricorn woman?

When people ask “Will I be compatible with a Capricorn man” or “Will I be compatible with a Capricorn woman” generally they are referring to their sun sign because that is all they know about Capricorn compatibility. In Western Astrology you are considered Capricorn if you are born between (and including) December 22nd – January 20th. But in Vedic Astrology Capricorn sun is from January 14th – February 13th. So often you may be a Capricorn in Western Astrology, but in Vedic Astrology (because it also considers the north and south nodes of the moon), you may not be a Capricorn sun at all. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be a Sagittarius sun. So if you were a Capricorn in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including January 14th to January 20th. But if you thought you were a Aquarius, you may now be a Capricorn!

Compatibility depends more on the ascendent / rising sign

In Vedic Astrology, your sun sign isn’t considered very important. It is more important what your ascendent (also called “Lagna”) is. This is calculated based on the day you were born, the year you were born and the time (in hours and minutes). Sometimes you can find your time of birth on your birth certificate. In other cases you may need to contact the hospital to find out. Of course, sometimes hospitals don’t record this information very accurately (generally they write it down a little after you were actually born), so a Vedic Astrology rectification is recommended. Contact us if you would like us to put you in touch with a Vedic Astrologer who can do this.

What are the qualities of a Capricorn ascendent?

The main qualities of Capricorn (called “Makara” in Sanskrit) are:

  • Practical
  • Determined
  • Reliable
  • Talkative
  • Ambitious
  • Hard-working
  • Dotes on children.

The Lord (controller) of the Capricorn sign is Saturn (called “Shani” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily Saturn is placed in your chart and the sign in which it is situated.

However, these qualities can be reduced by the effects of other areas of your chart. If you want to know more about this, please contact me and ask me to put you in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart.

How do Capricorn ascendents express their love?

Like the crocodile that is their symbol, they like water. They also tend to be a little stingy so maybe a walk at the beach or the lake would be good first date? But there is no need to be afraid as they are not really crocodiles.

Can Vedic Astrology predict your Capricorn love horoscope?

Yes. Your Vedic Astrology Chart, if interpreted correctly, can predict whether the current period is a good one for you to fall in love, or whether it will be more likely to happen in another period (if at all). We do supply some basic information about the periods as part of the Vedic Astrology Chart we create for members and we do supply information about the monthly transits affecting each ascendent, but please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer (also called a Jyotishi) who can tell you more about your chart.

But your ascendent / rising sign isn’t the whole compatibility story

Many other aspects of a person’s chart affect who they are (e.g., which house and sign their moon is in). So to really know if you will be compatible with them, the best way to tell is to have a Vedic Astrology Compatibility Report based on both of your birth times.

Your Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) chart covers all aspects of your personality and the Vedic Astrology compatibility reports look at all aspects of your life together such as:

  • how you both approach work
  • whether there will be power or dominance issues in your relationship
  • whether being together will help you both be healthier
  • your sexual attraction
  • whether you could produce happy and healthy children
  • whether you will grow in wealth together
  • how much love and harmony there will be between you both.

Vedic Astrology Compatibility Reports have been used by millions of people for thousands of years in deciding if two people will be a good match for each other. They also help make sure that if you end up marrying, that even your respective families will get on well (so no more Wedding party showdowns). Why not let us find you a great match by comparing your chart to that of other members that meet your selection criteria?

See an example of a Vedic Astrology Compatibility Report. If you are already dating someone, request a Compatibility Report to see if you are compatible astrologically.
