Aries:“(they are) hard–handed men which never labour’d in their minds till now” — from Shakespeare’s Midsummer Night’s Dream (V.i.72–3). That quote just helped me set the tone for this kind of a relationship. The Aries male can present the sweet and delicate Capricorn female with a number of obstacles. The poor man–child, as he will surely appear to be, is unruly and apparently undisciplined.
Not always, but to a more refined sign’s sensibility, the Aries male will come across as being not a great choice for these very reasons. The inherent difficulty here is the fact that the two signs square each other, that is, they are at right angles to one another. This isn’t always bad, but it will always be challenging. Now, a Capricorn female without a certain amount of challenge, is quickly bored. The Aries male will certainly rise to the occasion to provide those challenges.
