Libra and Capricorn Friendship Compatibility

Libra and Capricorn Friendship Compatibility

Genuine and deep Libra and Capricorn friendships are relatively rare. While the two zodiac signs may be drawn towards one another’s open genuine nature, but as they draw closer together, they can find that their differences rub.

At a trine angle on the astrological wheel, Libra is a free spirit and a social butterfly, while Capricorn’s horoscope tends towards discipline and drive. As a result, their compatibility is challenged when they try and make their two very different worlds fit together as friends.

Libra and Capricorn Compatible as Friends?

Libra and Capricorn can find it challenging to maintain a deep friendship. While these two open and generous souls might well be drawn towards each other, they can find it difficult to live in one another’s worlds.

Capricorn is all about discipline and achievement and doesn’t do anything without a well thought out plan. Libra, on the other hand, is a social butterfly that likes to go wherever the wind takes them. These two can appreciate one another, but can struggle to be those kinds of friends that do everything together and share all of their thoughts.

Mutual Interests

Libra and Capricorn don’t tend to be interested in the same things. Libra is generally drawn to whatever is new and trendy, and likes to be “up to the minute” in whatever they do. Capricorn, on the other hand, values things that are classic and timeless, and never go in for fads.

Capricorn is also incredibly frugal and believes in making the most of what they have. Libra on the other hand will often go after whatever interests them, and then let it fall by the wayside as it is no longer of value.

As a result, the personal interests of Libra and Capricorn rarely cross over, and they may even be a little critical of one another’s preferences and tastes.


Libra and Capricorn are both very loyal and generous friends, that would are happy to go above and beyond to help a friend when it is needed.

But Capricorn, despite their generous nature, knows that they need to put themselves first. So if it comes down to a choice between their own interests and that of a friend, they will do what is right for them. Libra understands this, and would never hold this against them.

While Libra is more likely to put themselves out to help someone else, they can also be a bit careless. They have a driving desire to be the center of attention, and if they can achieve that by betraying a confidence, they will. It is not meant as malicious, they just struggle to see beyond their need in the moment.

While Libra will show genuine regret, Capricorn may find it hard to accept. They are so self-disciplined that they can find it difficult to understand this kind of shortcoming in another person.

Fun & Excitement

Libra is spontaneous and rarely goes into anything with a plan, while Capricorn are planners and rarely do anything on the spur of the moment. This does mean that they can feel themselves pulling in different directions when it comes to fun. But sometimes, being pulled out of your comfort zone is an essential part of the excitement.

But Libra as well is happiest when they are about and about meeting new people. Capricorn prefers to spend their time focussing on the things that are important to them. So, these friends are often better off doing their own thing, and then getting together later to catch up on what they missed.

Likelihood to Last

Libra and Capricorn are both generous and understanding friends, so they are unlikely to fight over the little things and und up falling apart.

At times, Capricorn can struggle to understand Libra’s lapses in judgment, because Capricorn is so disciplined and in control. Libra can also feel uncomfortable if they feel like they are being judged by Capricorn.

But a friendship between these two is unlikely to end in sparks. Neither enjoys an argument. Rather than will just drift apart as they choose to spend more time with people with whom they have a greater affinity.


Libra and Capricorn are both generous and open. They are honest about their feelings and they are not afraid to share who they really are with other people. So, there is no concrete boundary that will stop the two sharing with one another. Under the right circumstances, they can form a deep and lasting bond.

But Libra and Capricorn can sometimes feel very different, and fail to understand where the other person is coming from.

Capricorn does not understand Libra’s sometimes flighty nature, while Libra can find Capricorn too strict and harsh. As a result, they may have other people in their lives with whom they prefer to share their confidences.

Libra and Capricorn Potential to be More Than Just Friends

These two zodiac signs are not the most likely love connection, but it can certainly flourish. Libra, in particular, is always happiest when they are in a relationship and might find themselves drawn to Capricorn’s open and generous nature. Capricorn will also be drawn to these qualities in Libra, giving the two a chance to make a connection.

But equally, Capricorn may find Libra just too flighty and inconsistent for their highly ordered and disciplined lives. Libra can also feel like they are stagnating under Capricorn’s unspoken but firm rules.

As a result, the relationship can be uncomfortable. It can become especially challenging when hard-nosed Capricorn refuses to compromise or judges Libra.

But if they manage to find a balance that works, the relationship can be happy, and a place of growth. Libra can help Capricorn loosen up a bit and realize that it is okay to deviate from the plan some of the time. Meanwhile, Capricorn can help Libra find the little bit of discipline that they need to harness their true potential.
