The earth sign Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) is usually linked to the goat, but this sign’s symbol is actually a sea goat with a horn on the left side of its head and a fish tail on the right. This duality speaks volumes about the Capricorn woman’s domineering, yet vulnerable, personality. She’s a complex balance of feminine and masculine energies, and she opens up to a select few. Meanwhile, the water sign Scorpio (October 23-November 21) is the sign of the scorpion, a quick-thinking fighter who knows how when to stay quiet and when to strike. Scorpio men demand loyalty and bore easily, and they’re in touch with their feminine depths and famous for their passion. So, what happens when these two get together?

If you’re a Scorpio man dating a Capricorn woman (or vice versa), you have some important things in common already that make you very compatible. Both signs are sensitive, independent types who attract a lot of admirers and go after what they admire wholeheartedly. But what happens when you two try to make it work long-term? First, you’ll need to understand each of your signs’ individual tendencies.

Meet the Capricorn Woman: Stubborn, Independent & Realistic

The Capricorn woman is complex, ambitious, and guarded. She seems reserved and calm on the surface, but she has a sensitive side and a sharp sense of humor, and she shares her deeper emotions and insights with those she truly trusts. Some will call Capricorn women hot-headed, selfish, and even ruthless, but these are the same people who don’t understand her drive to succeed or her need to compartmentalize. The Capricorn woman is definitely willing to let her guard down and make sacrifices for the people she trusts, but she has to have solid, logical reasons to give that trust in the first place. She likes reason and order in everything she does, so if you spend enough time with her, you might even find your routine getting more consistent and your home getting more organized.   

Meet the Scorpio Man: Clingy, Passionate & Secretive

Meanwhile, the male Scorpio is an all-or-nothing vigilante who throws himself into new experiences and lashes out when his trust is betrayed. He is a deep well of emotions, so he’s very expressive with friends and lovers alike, but it’s easy to hurt him too. The Scorpio man sees life in black-and-white terms, so you’re either on his side or you’re not. He attracts admirers easily, but many are intimidated by his sharp tongue and his intense personality, so if you make the cut he’ll shower you in affection and let his deeper emotions show. Scorpio men can get possessive and vindictive once their walls are down, but they can also become sensual, passionate lovers and loyal, trustworthy friends.

When Capricorn Meets Scorpio: Breaking Down Each Other’s Walls  

So, how do these signs align in the Zodiac? Both Capricorn and Scorpio need to feel like equals in their relationships, and both put on guarded, quiet displays while wrestling with some pretty deep emotions. But in order to make this match-up work, they must feel safe enough to reveal their sensitive sides. Scorpio is one of Capricorn’s preferred social companions, because he understands her logical approach to life and the importance of deep emotional connections. However, Capricorn may not seem exciting or emotional enough for Scorpio at first, so he needs to know how to communicate on her level. Here are some pointers for getting involved with either one of these enigmatic signs.

Dating a Capricorn Woman

When a Capricorn woman decides you’re worthy of her inner circle, she is extremely trustworthy, nurturing, and open-minded. However, it’s easy to mistake her for an uptight and closed-off leader who only has her eyes on the next prize. In reality, your Capricorn partner is just committed to her goals and skilled at keeping her cool, especially when she thinks people need that from her. When she’s with her partner, she wants to be unraveled and understood, and she’s even willing to climb down from her mountain and be submissive sometimes.

Living with your Capricorn partner? You probably already know this, but she loves lists, schedules, and productive days. Her reliability is often contagious, as her structured routine rubs off on the people she loves, and she has little patience for disorganization. Respect her need to stick to a timeline, rather than attempting to bring out her impulsive side, because she needs the security of a well-planned future. However, she will embrace her spontaneous side in the bedroom if she feels a deep emotional connection, and her stamina just might impress you.

Dating a Scorpio Man

The Scorpio man loves to entertain his partner almost as much as he loves to be entertained. He demands passion and emotional depth, which can seem hypocritical for this silent storm of a man, but he’s willing to do some work to figure you out. Though the scorpion is secretive and guarded, he needs to know what you’re thinking, and he may use unsavory tactics to do it. The good news? He’s just as likely to be loyal and supportive; he just needs to feel safe, because he’s a very sensitive soul who does his best to avoid getting hurt.

If you want long-term happiness with your Scorpio partner, make sure you don’t mistake his bravado for a tough outer shell. He needs a tender and sensitive partner who truly understands why certain things offend him, rather than just tiptoeing around him. This is why he often gravitates toward earth signs, who can keep him grounded and have no problem staying committed once they’ve invested in the relationship. The Scorpio man is charismatic and romantic, as long as he feels heard and secure, so just make sure you make an effort to understand him.
