Both signs are loyal, but also understanding. This means that they appreciate when their friend is there for them, but never expect too much. They know that everyone has their own life to live.

This level-headed approach to friendship means that there are few arguments, and the connection will stand the test of time.


Friendships between Taurus and Capricorn tend to be based on mutual interest and mutual respect, rather than a deep emotional bond. They also tend to help one another, in a way that ties the two together.

While Taurus is very sensitive and emotional, they are reticent about sharing their feeling with other people. Capricorn also tends to play their feelings close to the chest, thinking that revealing too much is a sign of weakness.

But if their coupling is fired, the two will tend to the kiln in such a way that the flame in unlikely to dim. They are very likely to find long-term happiness together.
