Capricorn - Scorpio Love Compatibility



What are the chances of success of a Capricorn-Scorpio love match? How compatible are Capricorn and Scorpio emotionally and sexually – and what are their relationship strengths and challenges?

Sun Signs which are two signs apart from each other, such as Scorpio and Capricorn, are ruled by complementary elements, here Water and Earth, and for this reason are traditionally considered to get on very well in a love relationship! What makes these signs so compatible is that the two are linked by sufficient similarities to allow them to function harmoniously together, yet at the same time there are enough differences to provide an alternative perspective and create that all important spark of excitement.

In the case of Capricorn and Scorpio, both signs tend to be high achievers, and are both willing to work patiently and determinedly towards realizing their goals – however long it may take. A similarly shrewd sense of caution and an indefatigable fighting spirit can carry a Capricorn-Scorpio couple far in life together: with Scorpio's emotional resilience and Capricorn's physical toughness there are few challenges they can't overcome.

Of course, Capricorn and Scorpio are also quite unalike in that while Capricorn’s strong points are its practicality and realism, Scorpio takes a more intuitive and emotionally insightful approach. And whereas the Scorpion thrives on complexity and intrigue, the Goat prefers to keep things simple and generally plays by the rules. The good news, however, is because these traits combine well with each other, potentially Capricorn and Scorpio make a great team!

One of the biggest challenges in a Capricorn-Scorpio relationship from both signs’ difficulties – for different reasons – in openly revealing their feelings.

Capricorn tends to ignore or downplay emotions it sees as childish, unrealistic, or likely to interfere with work and practical responsibilities. Scorpio experiences its emotions only too powerfully and deeply, but tends to keep a tight lid on them – often silently brooding for long periods – because it’s too suspicious and distrustful to share them.

Because expressing their love for each other doesn’t come easily to either of these two star signs initially, a Capricorn-Scorpio relationship can take a long time to get off the ground. But the good news is that once they’ve finally made a commitment, Capricorn and Scorpio will tend to be very faithful to each other. Where love is concerned, both are in for the long haul.


Sexually, Capricorn and Scorpio have much in common: because neither of these signs commits easily, they tend to favor the slow and steady approach, each being mindful of the other's respect and dignity.

Okay, to the down-to-earth Goat, Scorpio's extreme sexual fervor can be a bit too much at times – while to the passionate Water sign, Capricorn can seem rather cool and aloof and lacking in the same degree of sexual involvement as itself. But since both these star signs take love quite seriously and are willing to work hard on it, these are issues they can often be resolved.


Striking a balance between Capricorn’s no-nonsense practicality on the one hand, and Scorpio’s intuitive, feelings-oriented approach on the other hand is the fundamental challenge of this star sign pairing.

Earth sign Capricorn must realize there are situations in life which can’t be solved by commonsense alone and require more of a sensitive touch. The emotionally intense Scorpion has to accept just how badly it needs Capricorn’s strongly grounding influence to help keep it sane and healthy.

Learning from each other, absorbing some of the other’s best qualities, and adapting to whichever approach is most appropriate in a particular situation, will turn Capricorn and Scorpio into a highly effective duo.
