Western Star Signs
You share some similarities: both of you need security and are disinclined to take unnecessary, wild, or foolish risks. Departure from the safety of the well-known and familiar makes you both very uncomfortable. Radical changes or big gambles are not your style.
The major difference between you is that Capricorn is much more emotionally detached, somewhat dry or inexpressive of feelings and emotional needs, while Cancer is the very opposite.
Cancer requires (and gives) emotional support, tenderness, and sympathy much more than Capricorn does. Capricorn may seem hard, unfeeling or indifferent to Cancer at times, and Capricorn may well benefit from Cancer's softness and nurturing qualities.
Capricorn is also more ambitious and concerned with career, accomplishments, and the world at large, than Cancer is.
Cancer is not necessarily the most direct individual. Security is something Cancer is always aware of. Usually it's a top priority. Cancer is definitely strong and protective of turf.
Sexually and emotionally, your Sun signs are at odds: the sensitive and emotional Cancer requires more than your restrained kind of affection knows how to give. It's not that you won't; you just don't know how to. Cancer will need to show you their needs, patiently.
You both like to start things and to take the initiative. You're each restless, energetic, outgoing, opportunistic and ambitious. Probably, you're both more busy than bored.

Chinese Star Signs
The Rat and the Horse may run into problems. While both are very social, witty and energetic, the Rat needs a circle of friends and the Horse needs independence. This difference in needs will create a great deal of tension. They may not be able to maintain a great love life for more than a short while. Their overall compatibility rating is 20%.
The free spirited Horse is the Chinese Zodiac's wanderer. Horses need their independence and freedom. They are packed with energy and constantly moving from one activity to another. Horses are good with money and, of course, have a passion for travel.
Paradoxically, Horses desire love, which can lead them to feel ensnared. The rawness of their sex appeal is like a magnet and makes it easy for Horses to find love. Horses are skilled at the art of seduction. However, their relationships are unpredictable because their behavior is so erratic and they may flee without notice. Blessed with a keen wit and powerful presence, Horses love to show off to a crowd. Despite the strength of their being, Horses feel inferior to those around them.
Horses are not a patient lot. They can be quite impulsive and more than a little insensitive to the feelings of others. These self-reliant beings follow their whims through life, which explains why their paths are often littered with unfinished relationships, jobs and ventures. Conversely, Horses motivate others easily and often do reach their goals.
