When Scorpio and Capricorn make a love match, they get an opportunity to not only enjoy a loving relationship and learn the value of being a pair, but also to grow and mature as individuals. These two may be wary about sharing themselves with one another at first, and this emotional caution may dampen the initial impact of this relationship. These two tend to be a bit cautious (Capricorn) and pensive (Scorpio), and it takes a while for them to feel comfortable with a significant other. Though they may be shy of getting involved and not the quickest to trust and share, these two Signs will discover that they can have quite a profound connection — one of friendship and deep loyalty.

Much can be learned when a Scorpio and Capricorn get together — and the lessons they learn, while difficult at times to endure, are worth the trouble they might cause. From their stable, capable Capricorn mate, Scorpio can learn to bring their overheated emotions into control. Capricorn must be careful, though, not to seem too emotionally shallow when leveling any criticism on their sensitive love. Detached comments can backfire with Scorpios: They desire depth, intense feeling and the utmost in sincerity in all situations — most especially in love! Capricorn, so busy with achieving and with how others perceive them sometimes fails to take a chance with their emotions. From Scorpio, Capricorn will learn the value of looking below the surface of things, the rich pleasure that can come from deeply knowing another person. Both Signs share a love of committing to a task. If they decide a relationship is their next big goal to attain, there’s no stopping these two.
The Planets Mars and Pluto rule Scorpio, and the Planet Saturn rules Capricorn. Mars and Pluto represent aggression, courage, sexual energy, rebirth and renewal. Saturn teaches the great lessons in life — hard work, diligence, ambition and responsibility. These three Planets can combine in the Signs to form an industrious union bound by Scorpio’s fierce emotion and Capricorn’s ambitious action. This is a dynamic team for business, sure, but they all that achieving energy could translate well to affection and love.

Scorpio is a Water Sign, and Capricorn is an Earth Sign. Earth Signs are all about practical matters, about material possessions. What a good balance, then, for those of the Water element. Water Signs mold to the shape of the situation they’re in and often respond with emotion rather than logic. A match-up of Capricorn’s goal-oriented stability and Scorpio’s exciting mutability makes for quiet a team — whether they translate to love depends on whether love is their goal. If it is, expect success.
Scorpio is a Fixed Sign, and Capricorn is a Cardinal Sign. They may not seem the most romantic Sign of the Zodiac, but a Capricorn’s business and planning savvy could certainly be put to good use in devising elegant, well-planned nights of romance. If their Capricorn partner shows that much initiative, Scorpio will enthusiastically follow along, excitedly, if not a bit smugly, throwing in their own ideas, too. Scorpio can toss out some barbed comments under their breath or in such a sexy tone of voice that Capricorn might not even notice. A love-minded Sea Goat would do well to listen closely for subtle shades and nuances in their Scorpio partner’s voice and pay special attention to body language as well. Both Signs can be stubborn, and this could lead to some potential conflict. Also, Scorpio falls hard, emotionally involving themselves almost to the point of no return, in stark contrast to the sometimes-distant Sea Goat. Both partners must recognize this and accept it if the relationship is to be successful.
What’s the best thing about the Scorpio-Capricorn love match? Their determination toward shared ideas and their strong devotion to one another. They can open doors to one another’s souls and show one another new ways of perceiving and feeling.
