Sexy Matches: The Hot and Not-So-Hot Combinations

Knowing the characteristics of your sign and those of your partner can give you an idea of how compatible you'll be. But sexual compatibility can be a complicated thing. If you're unhappy about one of the not-so-good combinations, you may defy the odds. Enjoy the journey and see where life takes you.

Capricorn and Aries

There is no follower here. Both Capricorn and Aries want to lead, and their elements, fire and earth, do not blend easily. Relationships may prove to be combative, but for a fling, the heat of Aries with the staying power of Capricorn could be exhilarating.

The fight between the two signs is sexy, and the Ram and the Goat butting heads means a battle of equals. The affair may not involve more than attraction, with no promises and no demands.

Essential

Aries approaches sex with fiery anger, and Capricorn with a cooler, more sensual, disposition. Both signs respond well to spicy scents, and eating Mexican or Thai food before sex will enhance everything. The hot peppers appeal to Aries, and the salty taste to Capricorn.

Capricorn and Taurus

These are two earth signs — sensual, grounded, and tuned in to the pleasures of beautiful scents, tastes, and rhythmic lovemaking. This is a good combination for sex, communication, and fun. Capricorn and Taurus are good for a fling, good for a relationship, and good for the long haul. Their sole disadvantage is that they may fall into a rut over time, and need some racy videos or chocolate thong underwear to get desire rekindled.

Theirs is a trine relationship, and there is a harmonious flow of energy between the signs in all areas. There is a safe feeling between Capricorn and Taurus, and whatever the lovers feel ripples throughout their bodies and is easily communicated to the partner. Kisses and rubs around the neck and shoulders could be a religious experience for Taurus and Capricorn.

Capricorn and Gemini

This is neither a sexy combo nor a match made in heaven. Saturn (the ruler of Capricorn) and Mercury (the ruler of Gemini) have different speeds. Thus, Gemini is quick and changeable; Capricorn is slow and methodical. You can imagine the different sexual appetites.

Also, Gemini likes lots of talk, sweet words, and oral emphasis of all kinds. Capricorn goes for the full-body sensation and is not as interested in sexy words. One night together could be dizzyingly interesting for Capricorn, but the experience might feel like eating Chinese food: an hour later, you're hungry again. Earth wants more solid contact and is impatient with Gemini's changeability.

Capricorn and Cancer

This earth-and-water combination views life, sex, and everything else very differently, but opposites attract and there is attraction between the two signs. It is a fertile combination, so be mindful of birth control if you are not in the mood for pregnancy.Capricorn gives Cancer solidity, and Cancer gives Capricorn nurturing and a warm place to cuddle up. Though the sexual chemistry between these two signs is usually tender and sweet, it can lead to fireworks. Capricorn may pull away from Cancer because Cancer will inevitably feel very emotional after sex, and Capricorn does not like to deal with sentiment.

Capricorn and Leo

Earth and fire is the locomotive combination. Leo is the fiery spark that can ignite the earthy Capricorn, and, like a train, the forward motion can chug on forever. The trick here is to have enough connection to ignite the spark.

Zone

The small of the back is a particular erogenous zone for both Leo and Capricorn.

Capricorn and Leo want such different things in life that they may not cross each other's paths. If they do meet, these two signs are demanding sexual partners and will perhaps have a fling and not worry about forever.

Capricorn and Virgo

Earth to earth is a sensual and sexual combination. Capricorn calms Virgo's critical tendency with her determined and steady physicality. This combination enjoys time in the bathtub or hot tub, and a spa rendezvous. Both signs can be modest, but if they believe that they are doing something good for their health, their self-consciousness melts away. Sesame-oil massages and salt rubs will set the stage for sensuality nicely.

Capricorn and Libra

This is not one of the easy connections. Libra is air and ruled by Venus; Capricorn is earth and ruled by Saturn. Venus wants to play, flirt, tease, and be the queen or king, and Capricorn says, “Let's get serious.” The superficiality that some Librans have is not a turn-on for Capricorn. The two signs meet in their appreciation of a soft touch. Any rough encounters will turn Libra off and is thought indecorous by Capricorn.

Capricorn and Scorpio

This combination is a doozy! Capricorn's native discipline and Scorpio's lust for in-depth expression of feelings, sensuality, and sexuality make the sky the limit as far as sexual expression. Earth and water are harmonious elements in themselves, but when joined by the Capricorn drive and Scorpio passion they make a powerful connection. The e-zones here are everywhere and everything.

Capricorn and Sagittarius

Here we have a well-meaning connection, but not necessarily a passionate one. Earthy Capricorn wants consistency in sexual encounters, and Sagittarius wants to be free to come and go and make different plans. The Goat loves to be touched all over, but the Archer is finicky and sometimes too restless for long nights of lust. The way to work it out is to use different scents. Sag is wild about cinnamon and other spicy aromas.

Capricorn and Capricorn

What would you guess? This is a solid, dependable, sensual, good connection. Capricorns like the sexiness of feeling their energy strengthened by a fellow Goat. Also with Saturn people, sexual communication deepens over time. Capricorn will remember kissing the special curve of his body or the spot behind her earlobe that starts a night of love. And each time that spot is caressed, it leads to good, comfortable sex.

Zone

The back, shoulders, and bottom are erogenous zones for Capricorns.

Capricorn and Aquarius

Traditionally earth and air are not perfect matches, but here we have an interesting astrological connection, as Aquarius, before the discovery of the planet Uranus, was ruled by Saturn, Capricorn's ruler. The Aquarius who has Saturn predominant will be like a more talkative Capricorn and interested in all oral forms of expression.

This would be a comfortable and exciting partner for Capricorn. However, eccentric Uranus-ruled Aquarius is too unpredictable and liberal for most Capricorns. If they meet one of these electrifying Aquarians, most Capricorns will politely decline their attentions.

Capricorn and Pisces

This combination of earth and water has compatibility and ease. Pisces needs fantasy, and his slippery sensuality confuses Capricorn, but the result is friendly sex and genuine affection. All settings that include water will enhance love-making with this combination. Pisces also shares Capricorn's love of fabric and material. Silk sheets and a Tiffany lamp casting a soft glow in the bedroom will bring out the sensual best in these two signs.
