Virgo and Capricorn Friendship Compatibility

Virgo and Capricorn Friendship Compatibility

Virgo and Capricorn friendships are down to earth and stable, as you would expect when two Earth signs come together.

Placed at right angles on the astrological wheel, these two zodiac signs have a part of them that is very similar and another part that is completely different. But this just means that the zodiac signs find one another both comfortable and stimulating.

The compatibility of Virgo and Capricorn stems primarily from the fact that the sun signs believe that friendship is both a choice and a contract. They value the things that they choose for themselves. And once they give their word, especially to themselves, they never break it.

Here are the Virgo and Capricorn friendship key areas:

Virgo and Capricorn Compatible as Friends?

Virgo and Capricorn are very comfortable with one another, and therefore make excellent friends. While they tend to have different personal interests, their larger life outlooks aren’t dissimilar.

Both want to be successful, and get frustrated with downtime when they could be working towards their goals.

But really makes the friendship between these two work, is that both choose their friends. When the choice is conscious like this, they choose to commit to that person, they also commit to working on the relationship. And friendships that receive care and attention are always healthier and happier.

Mutual Interests

Virgo and Capricorn are both highly ambitious and driven, but often in very different ways. Capricorn is interested in stability, and so strives for traditional structure and security. Virgo tends to follow their nose in terms of what interests them. This can often mean the difference between wanting to be a lawyer or an archaeologist.

When their interests do coincide, they can work together well as both know how to really commit to something and focus on the details in order to get the most out of it. While other friends might find this frustrating as they want to plow ahead, Virgo and Capricorn are on the same page.

Both are also on the frugal and minimalist side, and enjoy making the most of what they have and looking for simple ways to have fun. As they are both Earth signs, both feel particularly energized and rejuvenated by spending time in nature.


Capricorn is incredibly generous and thoughtful. They never forget a birthday and is always the first person to show up with a bowl of chicken soup when someone is unwell. Virgo is the opposite, not because they have forgotten, but because they aren’t always certain that their attentions will be welcome.

Highly independent and quite secretive, Virgo doesn’t really like it when people are “in their business”, even with the best of intentions. So, they will also give others space, in the belief that they might want it.

This can make for a very uneven friendship, with Capricorn always going out of their way to do nice things, while Virgo holds back. Virgo is good enough at reading people that they will soon understand that Capricorn might appreciate some more attention, so they might up their game, at least a little.

But both signs also believe that friendship is a choice, and when you choose to be friends with someone, you make a commitment to them. This means keeping their confidences and being there for them in the really hard moments. Both will hold themselves to this commitment through thick and thin.

Fun & Excitement

Both Virgo and Capricorn would prefer to be doing something productive than whiling away the hours in clubs and bars. But this means that they are the perfect pair to have fun together. Start the night with a cocktail class rather than just a cocktail, and go to a fitness class on Saturday afternoon. These two will be having a ball.

Both prefer to plan than act spontaneously. And while Virgo might jump in headfirst if the offer is tempting enough, Capricorn’s risk-averse side means that they simply won’t.

This can mean that the pair miss out on opportunities, but they also make the most of the opportunities that they do have. Their plan will always involve squeezing every last ounce of fun out of an experience.

Likelihood to Last

As we have already said, Virgo and Capricorn see choosing to be friends with someone as choosing to commit. You adopt that person into your inner circle, and that is not something that can be easily reversed. As a result, when these two make a friendship, it is likely to last.

Both signs are also good at reading people, and understand that life is complicated and that no one can be perfect all the time (as hard as Virgo tries). So, they are both very forgiving, even of pretty big transgressions, as long as the other person has the guts to admit what they did and apologize.

Luckily, both Virgo and Capricorn have this kind of courage, and recognize apologizing as courage rather than humility.


Virgo and Capricorn work well either as superficial friends that like to do things together, or as close friends that share a genuine and deep bond.

Both signs are down to earth and practical, and so appreciate this in another person. As a result, they are more likely to share their thoughts with one another, than someone else who they feel might “dramatize” things.

While Capricorn will tend to openness, Virgo will likely choose to hide parts of themselves. Virgos are very good at compartmentalizing their lives and only sharing selected parts of it with different people.

That does not make Virgo feel like their relationship is any less deep, just that the friendship belongs to a specific part of their life.

Virgo and Capricorn Potential to be More Than Just Friends

Virgo and Capricorn generally tend to find one another comfortable rather than intriguing, so are much more likely to fall into patterns of friendship than passion. But when the stars do align for these two to fall in love, it is usually a sweet relationship based on genuine affection.

Capricorn might find themselves attracted to an ambitious and successful Virgo as part of their craving for stability. Virgo, on the other hand, tends to follow pure emotion rather than have something that they are looking for. So, if a Capricorn sparks those emotions in them, they won’t be afraid to put themselves out there.

Both can thrive in the relationships as they encourage one another to do what they are good at, rather than pulling them in other directions.

I've had a serious relationship with two Virgo's and I find them ridiculous and lazy. Lazy being the worst part.
