Aquarius Mother-In-Law + Capricorn Daughter-In-Law

Where You Click

Sporty Capricorn and active Aquarius make great fitness buddies. The two of you may be skilled enough to go beyond jogging and cardio class–although you’ll certainly be great at getting each other to the gym. Skiing the black diamond slopes, bungee jumping, parasailing? Now we’re talking. Your mother-in-law has an eternally youthful spirit that brings out your own lighthearted edge. It’s healthy for you to take life a little less seriously sometimes, and Aquarius is the perfect person to help with that. At times you may feel more like you’re the mother and she’s the daughter. 

Logic ranks high on the list of traits you both admire. Capricorn and Aquarius have a similar approach to hashing out problems–you prefer to sit down and talk them through in a calm and rational manner. You both like to focus on the future and can make great collaborators for any long-term planning that needs to be done for the family.  


Where You Clash

Your mother-in-law’s “live for the moment” style could give any Capricorn heart palpitations. In addition to contributing to your monthly retirement fund since age eighteen, you’ve likely started trust funds for your future children. Planning for the tomorrow is what you need to feel secure. Your mother-in-law likes to live for today. She often survives on a wing and a prayer. When you try to talk to her about a living will, she’ll run for the hills. Too much of a downer!

When it comes to family values, the two of you diverge quite dramatically. Capricorns gravitate towards a more conventional structure. Aquarius is the eternal free spirit who thinks most rules were made to be laughed at. Your husband may have some wild tales from his childhood. As a result, you may feel burdened with having to create maternal structure for him that his own mom didn’t provide. This can be a drag on your romantic life, so be careful not to fall into the trap of compensating for her June Cleaver-less ways.
