Taurus man and Capricorn woman function together well because you both share an earthy appreciation of all that is valuable in an earthly sense. Taurus values the aesthetics more, so will be the one investing in art, while Capricorn is more about practicalities so she’ll be the one who gets it properly framed, displayed and insured.
You would think this would be a match for the ages- and oh, it can be!
With both partners being incredibly realistic and quite well grounded, the Taurus man finds that he rather enjoys the Capricorn woman’s pragmatic nature.
Right up until she comes completely unglued because she’s bored, or wants him to help clean the house. Or Taurus just won’t get up and go and she has no idea where the relationship is actually heading.
If you’re a Capricorn woman, and you’re looking for information on your Taurus man, you have come to the right place. However, with this Earth Sign – Earth sign pairing, you may need to do just a little bit of homework.
You, as a Capricorn, are most definitely one of the most pragmatic, intellectual and grounded of the signs. That comes through to a certain degree- but, when it comes to how you feel and what you need: you may often notice…oddly, you don’t seem to be very Capricorn at all!
Here is where the homework comes in, because if you want to effectively convey what you need and want to your Taurus man- you need to figure that out, first, otherwise: he’s just going to think you’re that “cool chick” who doesn’t need or want for very much in terms of romance.
Don’t get me wrong, he is likely deeply romantic- but, from you, he almost breathes an audible sigh of relief. Because the two of you have a fantastic level of common sense and you’re both very materially oriented: he may believe that all is well when in fact…all is not well, is it?
The chemistry between a Capricorn woman and a Taurus guy
Capricorn is a good initiator and manager of projects and plans. When she is daydreaming, you can be sure she is organizing her thoughts into a detailed blueprint.
Taurus likes having the future clearly mapped so each gives the other a sense of stability and dependability that you seldom find in lovers from the more capricious signs.
Neither of you is obsessed with perfection, but you both naturally live in the now. Making the most what you have to offer and what is hand, is your natural, shared inclination. Many couples with this combination of signs start businesses and grand projects that actually come to fruition.
Sexually you bond well although this is more about feeling safe and secure to explore your passion than a smoldering or overpowering attraction.
Both of you need to make the occasional flamboyant romantic gesture or your weekends together will find you looking at spreadsheets instead of showing off your mutual appreciation between the sheets.
Capricorn Woman – How she really is?
Capricorn is said to be ambitious and cold, but what you really care about is that everyone is ok, and you can be a very generous and caring friend or partner.
You are at your best when you’re with someone who makes you feel safe and gives you some status of your own. If you feel secure your adventurous spirit can take you much higher in life.
You are able, through sheer persistence, to get closer to your goals but this ability is challenged and can turn destructive when you feel scared or you don’t get the approval you seek. You know how to make things happen but will only step in if invited, as status and approval are what you need to shine.
The truth is, the two of you have one of the most harmonious relationships among zodiac signs- though he may drive you a little crazy and he may think you’re a bit on the sanctimonious side.
You are very ambitious, hardworking and tend to be a bit more serious than he is. The image you often project without trying is that of someone who is very self-sufficient, strong, and often, aloof. Although you know deep down, you would love to be able to rely on someone and you are anything but aloof!
He, too, can seem to be this very strong, very practical man. Except, he’s got this gluttonous streak that goes through everything he does- and that can be a bit mind-boggling for you on several levels. You see, for him, comfortable often means familiar.
Even when whatever it is he’s familiar with is a crummy situation: he’ll often be very, very slow to change it. You’d think that wouldn’t hold true for a great relationship in the making- but, you’d be wrong.
I know that for you, it gets tiresome always being the one in charge. Always the one to make the moves, always the one getting things set up. No doubt, in your life there are a lot of people who rely on you: even on emotional levels.
You’d love to be able to have someone to take care of you for a change, to make those moves and you kind of thought that’d be this Taurus man. Except…now he isn’t. As a matter of fact, he may have pulled away entirely!
Taurus Man – How he really is
A Capricorn woman will be drawn to the Taurus man’s practical and reliable habits, especially when it comes to money and possessions. Taurus has some quaint and outmoded ideas about how his woman should behave and you fit the bill more than most women.
He needs to feel sure of you, so your dry style of tactful communication is like a big glass of cold water on a very hot day to a sensitive Taurus man.
His approach to relationships as a journey of carefully planned steps will appeal to you, as you need to see that you are in his capable and steady hands before you really let go.
Taurus wants a committed, steady, well-defined relationship, where mutual respect is the basis for sharing a life together. He may take a while to figure out that you want the same things but once he makes up his mind, you will have a loyal partner for life.
From the outset, the Taurus man looks like a considerable catch to a Capricorn woman. The kind of guy she’s been waiting for. And in the early days, he may well lay it on thick which you might not be used to at all.
He may court you, he may not. This one depends on how you’ve presented yourself. The key here is, do not let him get into the habit of thinking you are low maintenance!
I know, I know- you can take care of yourself. But, you know that you don’t always want to have to do that. Is it really worth being able to smugly talk about how you’re not like the other women? Because, I’m here to tell you- it isn’t.
He’ll find out as time goes on you’re not but when it comes to romance and other love related things: the last thing in the world you want to do is to approach this with pragmatism and groundedness.
Be the queen you’re meant to be, Capricorn. He will be the most loyal of your subjects and certainly be your King: but he has to know that’s what you want and if you lean in too much on the idea of being low-key in terms of romance, you’ll find yourself wanting. Bored. It happens.
You need to realize, you will not change him. He won’t change you, either. But oh, you’ll both sure give it the old’ college try at first and that can cause a lot of heartache and conflict.
Instead, recognize that often, these differences you have can be very complimentary if you allow them to be: and help you both learn a great deal about yourselves as well as bringing you closer rather than tearing you apart!
In any relationship, no matter how healthy and wonderful- there are bound to be arguments or disagreements. When you have a strong personality- such as you, a Capricorn woman have, and another strong personality- which the Taurus man has: it can be pretty tense at times but it doesn’t have to be. Understanding first off- that these things happen and it doesn’t mean the relationship is bad or over is important.
In the healthiest relationship, you’ll find that mutual choices matter. You’ve got to be careful with that line between making an actual compromise and simply tolerating bad behavior- but, once you have made a real compromise, they’re easy to recognize.
Whenever it’s a real compromise and not just one partner “giving in” to the other- you should feel a sense of relief, rather than a grumbling sort of acceptance.
Sparks: What works for this zodiac pairing
Your gentle realism and reserved but smoldering sexiness will have Taurus in an attentive sweat when he’s trying to make you his. You will have to overcome your cynicism and trust that your bull really does love and want you. Once he is in your thrall, he won’t stop easily, so you will be pleasantly seduced – if you allow yourself to – by his luxurious courtship.
You are both concerned with security, not just the physical sense of it, but emotional stability is something you both respect and a calmness of slow and steady love is likely to be the style of how you bond, rather than an unpredictable whirlwind romance.
Neither of you fears to work hard, in your careers as well as relationships, so if problems arise, you will be prepared to do the work required to fix the problems.
Your aloof nature benefits from being around a cuddly, playful and affectionate bull man, and your calm, rational style will help Taurus realize when he is being silly, or childishly stubborn.

What could go wrong: Watch that sharp tongue, Capricorn!
Before we get into what you can do about the problem, let’s take a look at one of the most common issues between a Capricorn woman and a Taurus man: how you two deal with conflict.
You may have noticed, whereas you want to solve the problem: he seems to want to avoid it. This is because though Taurus is no slouch when it comes to standing up for himself- he doesn’t particularly care for confrontational situations. What do you do then, if you need to talk to him about an important issue?
Taurus men aren’t stupid. They like to keep things simple, but, that doesn’t mean they lack intelligence- on the contrary, they’re usually very smart. Smart enough that to avoid conflict, they will often resort to passive-aggressive behavior that may make you crazy!
The first step is knowing how to talk to him about the things that bother you. Neither one of you is particularly flexible, that’s for sure! However, there are ways that you can engage in a healthy conversation with your Taurus man that gets the job done- maybe. I’ll get to that maybe in a minute.
Here are the 5 Top Ways To Talk About a Problem With a Taurus Man
1. Own your own feelings and choices
Hold him to owning his. In many cases, because you are a Cardinal sign and he is a Fixed sign: you may find you make a lot of the decisions which means, ultimately, that’s your responsibility. That doesn’t mean you have to do it alone, mind- if you calmly explain why it is you are doing something, though, your Taurus man may be your biggest supporter.
On that same note, you have to acknowledge that your feelings are a reaction to his behavior: but, your feelings are YOUR feelings. Using statements like “You being late all the time makes me so mad!” isn’t going to do the trick here. Instead, own your anger- take a step back to cool down, and then, explain to him how being late impacts your plans.
2. Respect his valid input
Now, I am making a distinction for valid here, as there are a few things he may try that are not conducive and certainly not valid. But, when you’re talking to him about the things that bother you- listening to him when he explains why he’s done something or didn’t do it may help him to open up.
Of course, there are certain things you don’t need to put up with- we’ll get to that shortly. Feeling heard, feeling understood will make him more open to your constructive criticism and more likely to change the behavior.
3. Just the facts, ma’am
Stick to one issue and stick to factual elements about it. If you dogpile him with twenty different things that have been eating at you, you’re just going to have a big fight to nowheresville.
4. Don’t avoid your problems and don’t put off talking about them
You as a Capricorn woman have this tendency to bottle your feelings up- little things pile on top of each other to become big resentment: which doesn’t do any good and can make your temper explode. Instead of silently seething and expecting him to just…stop whatever it is, or do whatever it is: address it calmly and right away.
5. Follow up with him about it later on
This holds particularly true if you two talked and worked it out- and you saw results. Let him know how much you appreciate it, and encourage him to continue discussing things with you in the future. This is also a good way to prevent yourself from sitting on unresolved issues until you lose your cool.
But…what if he doesn’t respond very well to this?
The most common Taurus male reaction to confrontation, no matter how polite you are: is to shut down or distance himself. Do not be afraid of this and do not take it as necessarily a bad thing.
Whatever you do- don’t keep after him to be in touch or he’ll retreat even further!
He may try to deflect or outright deny there’s an issue at all- and in this case, this frustrating behavior can be avoided simply in the way you address the issue.
Sometimes, if you approach your issues with him the wrong way, he will be critical. He may even become so defensive that he makes really insulting statements or otherwise, just balks about the whole thing.
A lot of these criticisms are deflections- this is what happens when you bring a problem to someone’s attention and they bring up one of theirs. Usually, with a Taurus man- this will be the first you’re hearing it!
The greatest challenge for a Taurus man and Capricorn woman is that you may forfeit romance to meet your practical concerns. Others may find you a bit dull as a couple since sparks and fireworks are things you put out rather than start them. Once in a while, you should make the effort to let some fire into your lives.
Both of you tend to let resentment simmer, and this could lead to a comfortable but undesirable chill where certain topics are off-limits and never resolved. Marriage is a business and a working partnership for a Taurus and Capricorn couple.
This approach avoids divorce but it can bleed your emotional soul dry. A sense of emptiness is a symptom of a relationship that needs a picnic or a spa day or a mad weekend of dancing to come back to life.
The Score: Compromise Builds Trust- Except When it Doesn’t
You probably know and have heard repeatedly that compromise helps in keeping conflict out of your relationship or, at the very least, to a minimum.
Now, neither of your signs is particularly keen on that- the middle ground really isn’t a favorite for either of you. This, however, does have certain exceptions: you don’t hear this very often, but, sometimes compromise just isn’t the answer.
So, how do you know when you should compromise and when you shouldn’t?
For instance, if you and your Taurus man are supposed to go out tonight at 8, but, he calls you and says that he’s had something come up, can you go out around 10 instead?
Perhaps you have to work the next day, so you ask if it would be possible to go out the next day and he says he already has something going on. So, you two decide together to go out to lunch instead. That would be an example where compromise is completely understandable and constructive.
But, when this is something of a long-running problem or involves bad behavior on one partner or both partner’s parts: here we get into where it’s a little more complicated. If he’s stood you up several times or somehow always has an excuse for not going out, you may be less likely to want to compromise and rightfully so!
Now, on the surface, some might say you are a bit rigid to not want to change the time- but, if they knew the whole story…they might not be so inclined to think so.
As a Capricorn woman, you may have been dealing with this issue with your Taurus man for some time and it’s important to recognize where something IS in fact, a long-standing problem and when it’s not.
If you notice that this is something he does all the time, or it involves things that are important to you, or if there is a lot of resentment around whatever the issue is: then, no. Compromise may not be the best way to resolve this- but what is?
When things happen between the two of you, when conflict arises, you may realize that you need to talk to him- and get him to respond!
The problem is, all too often we don’t know how to talk to each other in such a way that our partners hear and they aren’t that great at it, either! With a Capricorn woman and a Taurus man- this holds particularly true.
Though you both prefer a simple, direct approach, at times- you can come across as being much more aggressive and possibly even confrontational than he does. You might note he is a little bit passive aggressive about addressing any problems HE may have- which can be infuriating to you!
There are two approaches to this- you can either blame him or you can just get into the problem. What usually ends up happening in relationships, on both sides: we blame each other rather than ever get to the problem.
It’s fairly normal when we’re angry with one another to point out that the behavior itself is what has made us mad, to focus on that, and it makes sense: you think that if you let him know that you’re upset by it and what went wrong, he’ll change the behavior- but that doesn’t happen very often.
You will find with your Taurus man that it’s often easier for him to actually get his head around things if you stick to how you feel about it but do so calmly. This takes him off of the defensive and helps him feel a little more open to what you have to say, as a result.
Instead of saying something like, “Can’t you ever be on time?! This makes me so mad!” which might seem like you’re telling him a…sort of “I feel” statement: it’s not. This puts him on the defensive and he may push back rather than see the problem.
Avoiding blame entirely is your best bet. Pull the focus off of him, and rather, more on your feelings about what he’s done, “I feel like I’m not important to you when you are late.” Owns your feelings but it also doesn’t put him on the defensive as badly.
When a Capricorn woman has a Taurus man at her side she can achieve great heights. As long as you remember that your partner may act macho but he may secretly be scared of heights, this is a solid combination.
Both of you want a material expression of who and what you are, and you can each enhance the value of your lover by doing the caring, sensible nurturing that you both excel at.
