Friendships between Sagittarius and Capricorn are challenging are challenging because the two are just so different. While the two zodiac signs might sit alongside one another on the zodiac wheel, they do not tend to sit comfortably together in life.
Sagittarius’ horoscope is one of spontaneity and risk, while Capricorn is all about planning and security. This means they simply aren’t compatible when it comes to intertwining their lives. They may well enjoy a slightly more distant friendship, which both of them can dip into when and how suits them.

Sagittarius and Capricorn Compatible as Friends?
While Sagittarius and Capricorn may enjoy one another’s company and get on quite well, they are generally too different to be close friends in the long run.
Sagittarius is all about adventure and risk, while Capricorn is about stability and slowly building success. They respect one another completely, but just do not fit comfortably into one another’s worlds.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are both doers, and tend to spend most of their time with the people they have something to do with. Therefore, they will probably spend a limited amount of time together. They will enjoy the occasional get together, and be happy not to have to spend too much time out of their comfort zone.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are very different in terms of what interests them. Sagittarius are adventurers and risk-takers. They like anything that is new, different, and challenging. Capricorn on the other hand crave stability, and they put their faith in the tried and tested.
So, while Sagittarius is learning Krav Maga or Bartitsu, Capricorn is doing traditional karate, or maybe is a committed runner.
Sagittarius likes to move from interest to interest, trying them on for size. If they fail, that’s OK, it is all about the process of learning.
Capricorn doesn’t like to invest their time unless they know they are going to get something out of it, so they make more of a commitment. While they aren’t afraid of hard work, they can find it difficult when they fail because they are incredibly self-critical.
Sagittarius and Capricorn have a strange, inverted balance of loyalty. Sagittarius is pretty unreliable. They are always to busy planning their next adventure or escapade to keep an eye on what the people closest to them might need. They tend to forget birthday, appointments, and sometimes just not show up if a better, more exciting offer comes along.
But Sagittarius has a very loyal heart, and they don’t really realize that these actions might be hurtful. In their hearts, they are always on the side of their friend. So, while they might not be there on their friend’s birthday, they will be there with an ax in hand the moment a real crisis hits.
Capricorn, on the other hand, is very good at the day-to-day. They never forget a thing, and they are always the first person to plan that surprise birthday lunch or give a friend a pick me up when they are feeling down.
But, at the same time, Capricorn knows the importance of putting yourself first (if you don’t, who will), so they won’t do anything that goes against their interests.
Both Sagittarius and Capricorn are up front and honest, so there is no lack of trust between the two, but they do not tend to be on the same page when it comes to what they consider loyalty.
Fun & Excitement
Sagittarius and Capricorn also don’t tend to play well together. Sagittarius is spontaneous and enjoys a little (or a lot) of danger. Capricorn always likes to have a plan, and they are highly risk-averse. They like to assess everything before deciding whether a risk is worth taking.
This means that whether it is a night out, or a holiday, these two take a very different approach. Sagittarius packs a bag and sees where their feet take them, while Capricorn will have a detailed daily plan to ensure they don’t miss out on anything.
This doesn’t mean that these two can’t have fun together. They can sometimes share a sense of humor, but they need to be free to go their separate ways when they are being drawn in different directions.
Likelihood to Last
Sagittarius and Capricorn probably aren’t the type to remain close over a long period of time. While they may like one another and care about one another, they often just don’t have enough in common to justify spending a lot of time together.
Both Sagittarius and Capricorn are doers, though in quite different ways, so they can lose touch with people who aren’t part of their activity.
For Sagittarius, this is their next spontaneous adventure, for Capricorn, it is their mission to build a perfect life.
They will happily stay the type of friends that enjoy catching up every so often, but don’t have a reason to spend loads of time together.
Sagittarius and Capricorn are very different, so very often, they simply do not have the proximity to give them the opportunity to form a deep bond. However, if circumstances do conspire to bring them together, they can form quite a strong bond.
People tend to have an innate understanding of what they lack, and respect this when they see it in other people. Sagittarius knows that they lack the ability to commit to things, while Capricorn can see that they are quite tightly wound and could afford to relax a little.
For this reason, they may well enjoy conversing with one another about some of their challenges to get a different perspective on things. Both are quite rational and also don’t like to get overly emotional, which can make the conversation very comfortable for them.
Sagittarius and Capricorn Potential to be More Than Just Friends
While Sagittarius and Capricorn might find themselves attracted to one another in a case of opposites attract, or based on a shared sense of humor, it can be incredibly difficult for these two to make a love connection work. This is not down to any lack of feeling, they are just too different to fit intimately into one another’s worlds.
Sagittarius needs to be “on the run” all the time, always doing something and always experimenting and doing things differently. They are also not only comfortable with a certain level of risk, they thrive on the energy of it.
Capricorn, on the other hand, likes order, and likes to be in control of everything. They almost never take a risk unless they are pretty certain of the outcome. They believe that they need to invest in themselves and their lives and build them into something. Capricorn tends to believe that slow and steady wins the race.
Sagittarius can find Capricorn’s world claustrophobic and draining, while Capricorn can find Sagittarius’ scary and uncomfortable. In general, it is just too much of a compromise for either to make.
But love is love, and we are always surprised by what people can and will do for love.
