of those signs - will have more harmonious financial vibrations with the Goats. Otherwise, money could turn out to be the 'root of all evil' between them.
One happier aspect of their compatibility is that the brutal frankness of Sagittarius - those stinging arrows of honesty - will bounce more easily off the Goat than they'll bounce off less thick-skinned Sun Signs. Most of the time, when a Sagittarian friend, lover, mate, child, relative or business associate shoots a barbed observation of painful truth toward Capricorn, the Goat simply shrugs. "So nu?" remarks Capricorn. It's not easy to shake these people. Nevertheless, Sag should take it easy. Too many carefree remarks, and the Goat will slap down the Archer with Saturn's own brand of heavy observations of truth, which could cause the happy-go-lucky Sag to brood in a corner for months. Saturn-ruled Capricorns are excellent instructors of necessary lessons to the impulsive and outspoken of this world.
At first glance, Sagittarius do seem to push Capricorns around. At least, that's the way it appears to onlookers. But while all the pushing and bossing is going on, the Goat is quietly and determinedly doing his (or her) own thing, and in the long and short of it, Sag will usually get the short of it. Like all Earth Signs, Cappy only gives in temporarily, to avoid argument. Then, when the Goat has had enough, watch those feet dig not Mother Terra Firma, as the Goat sits there sullenly, a lump of smoldering resentment, those beady eyes daring Sagittarius to push one more inch. Go ahead, push. See what happens. Most Archers have the good sense to know when to stop shoving Capricorn. (Before Cappy becomes really angry. That's when to stop.)
Sagittarians are, at heart, wistful clowns, bicycling around a three-ring circus, with a generally lighthearted attitude toward life's problems. Undue fretting and worrying distresses them. Their basic natures are sunny and valiantly hopeful, which is why they suffer so dreadfully when they discover the dark side of the rainbow. Capricorn's nature is more somber and restrictive (self-imposed restriction), the Goats having been born with a built-in warning signal for excesses and an innate sense of… well, surefooted balance on life's rocky cliffs. When all's said and done, Sag is optimistic, Capricorn is pessimistic. Sagittarian optimism troubles the careful Goat. Capricorn pessimism depresses the Archer's soaring spirit.
Yet, at those times when the happy Sagittarius clown is broken-hearted over the cruelty of uncaring souls who didn't share his (or her) gigantic Jupiter faith and generosity, Capricorn is there to heal the hurt with loving tenderness and wisdom - very much in the same way Sag remembers certain beloved grandparents to have behaved in childhood. The Goat may gruffly chide and scold, but no one can be gentler, more affectionate, when Capricorn's Saturnine counsel has been ignored by the careless Archer, bringing all manner of woe down upon his or her idealistic head.
"There, there, won," soothes Cappy. "Don't be sad and glum. Everything will turn out all right sooner or later. The sun always comes out after the rain. Isn't that what you taught me yourself?"
Yes. That happens to be precisely what Sagittarius did teach Capricorn. And the Goat is much wiser for it.
