Taurus Capricorn compatibility?
When people ask “As a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Capricorn man” or “Or as a Taurus – will I be compatible with a Capricorn woman” generally they are referring to their sun sign because that is all they know about. In Western Astrology Taurus is from April 20 to May 21. In Vedic Astrology Taurus Sun signs are from May 15 to June 15. It is pushed back three weeks, so you may actually be an Aries sun. So if you were a Taurus in Western Astrology, you will only remain one if you were born between and including May 15th to May 21st. But if you thought you were a Gemini, you may now be a Taurus!
In Western Astrology you are a Capricorn if you are born between (and including) December 22nd – January 20th. But in Vedic Astrology (Jyotish) Capricorn sun is from January 14th – February 13th. So often you may be a Capricorn in Western Astrology, but in Jyotish (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!
Dating and marriage compatibility depends more on the rising sign / ascendent
In Jyotish, your sun sign isn’t considered very important. Your ascendent (also called your “Lagna”or “rising sign”) is considered more important. This is calculated based on the year, month, day and time you were born (in hours and minutes). In some places you can find your birth time on your birth certificate. In other cases you may need to contact the hospital or other authority to find out. If you can’t find it out, a Jyotishi can do a Vedic Astrology rectification to work out your birth time. Contact us if you would like to be put in touch with someone who can do this.
What are the qualities of a Taurus ascendent?
The main qualities of Taurus (called “Vrishabha” in Sanskrit) are:
- Not angry for long.
The Lord (controller) of the Taurus sign is Venus (“Shukra” in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by how happily “Venus” 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 Vedic Astrology Chart. Please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Vedic Astrologer who can tell you more about your chart.
What are the qualities of a Capricorn ascendent?
The main qualities of Capricorn (called “Makara” in Sanskrit) are:
- Dotes on children.
The Lord (controller) of the Capricorn sign is Saturn (called Shani in Sanskrit). So this house is also affected by where 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. Please Contact Us if you would like to be put in touch with a Jyotishi who can tell you more about your chart and about Taurus Capricorn compatibility.
What are Taurus ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like the bull that is their symbol, Taurians are strong either mentally or physically. Although they are slow to become angry, if they do, they are a force to be reckoned with. If you want to love a Taurus ascendent, cooking for them (or taking them to a great restaurant) may be the way to their heart. They have a tendency to hide their own individuality for the sake of the relationship, but don’t let them do this as it won’t be healthy for them in the long run. So try and draw them out.
What are Capricorn ascendents like in terms of their ability to love and date?
Like their symbol the crocodile, they like water. They also tend to be a little stingy so maybe a walk at the lake or the beach would be good first date? But there is no need to be afraid as they aren’t really crocodiles.
If you are dating someone with a Capricorn or Taurus sun sign (according to Western Astrology), find out if you are both compatible astrologically
Many aspects of a person’s chart affect who they are (e.g., their ascendent and the 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. It look at all aspects of your life together such as:
- how you both approach work
- whether being together will help you both be healthier
- whether you will grow in wealth together
- whether there will be dominance or power issues in your relationship
- your sexual attraction
- whether you could produce happy children
- how much love and harmony there will be between you both.
