Libra squares Capricorn. I have planets in both signs so I can tell you how this works.
Libra is a people-pleaser. There is no way around this. If you’re a Libra and you are not pleasing people, it’s something else in your chart, stepping in front.
Capricorn needs to maintain their integrity. It absolutely hates to be disingenuous. You see the potential clash.
For a real-life example, Isis, just suggested I publish my book. She has no earthly idea how much I would like to do this to please her. LIBRA! I want to say, “Of course! My pleasure!”
But Capricorn has a different perspective. This side of me has judged the work and decided it’s a fail. So now what? There is a big line there. So Capricorn comes in and says, “NO”. Then Libra is very sad for being so mean!
Capricorn should show a bit more appreciation for Libra, who covers Capricorn’s many fears with it’s easy social grace. I don’t know that Capricorn can manage this, in spite of managing everything else. <- joke.
Now if the request does not require Capricorn to compromise their integrity, then everything is go. But when there is a conflict, Capricorn almost always gets it’s way.
The only exception to this rule I can think of is in situations where manners are required. Capricorn bends a bit here so as to not be embarrassed in public.

Do you have Libra and Capricorn in your chart? How do you see these signs play (or not play) together?
