How these traits intermingle

Scorpio's fiery nature is often received by Capricorn with indifference. This aloofness frustrates Scorpio and makes him or her feel as if Capricorn is cold and unfeeling. On the other hand, Capricorn is not being hostile or unappreciative. The Goat just likes to handle things from a rational point-of-view. Capricorn is waiting out the storm, so that Scorpio can be approached when calmer.

You can see how this could lead to a vicious cycle, but in the best case scenario Scorpio will learn to be a bit more rational and Capricorn will learn to be a bit more emotional. Inwardly, Scorpio is drawn to Capricorns understated wisdom. At the same time, Capricorns are fascinated by the way Scorpios understand people and draw others near. This relationship has potential for each to gain personal insight..

Both are fiery in the bedroom. Most people do not associate this with Capricorn, but Goats have vivid imaginations. While not as daring as a Scorpio, Capricorn will be able to keep up with a partner he or she trusts and feels safe with. Scorpio will like this because most signs do not challenge him or her amorously. Scorpio brings out Capricorn's sensuality. They are generally a very good match in this area.

They may also work well as a team (whether it be in business or in the home) because Scorpio is creative and shrewd while Capricorn is organized, plans for contingencies and always balances the books to the penny.


These signs may have more in common than a first glance would reveal. Both value discipline and accomplishment; both are also very strong-willed. So if able to work together they can create a strong bond, especially in a world where they view most people as only followers. Typically these signs have a hard time trusting other people, so they are usually good at encouraging each other in this area and taking their time. One major difficulty is that Capricorns usually cannot express the depth of their feelings as much as Scorpio would like. The verdict is this: not a "fun" relationship but one with the potential for great depth and lifelong learning.
