The Scorpio and the Goat

AstroCompatibility Is The Goal

This series on AstroCompatibility will cover all of the potential matchups in the Zodiac. We will continue this series thinking about and commenting on Capricorn and Scorpio. You can get new info on cosmic, prophecy and political questions at Christofer's new website at:

Scorpio - Capricorn

Capricorn is Earth and Cardinal. Scorpio is Water and Fixed. Respect and power in business is what these two are both about. They can engage one another in their mutual sense of seriousness. It is hard to beat these two in the zodiac, for their combined senses of serious intent. This alone will predict that they could be in good agreement as a couple, partner, buddy, friend, lover. Leaning into each other at a party, they could share sentiments and opinions. They would be mutually concerned with how business and free enterprise is being affected by the current political environment, and how increased taxation might affect their futures. Business does not have to always be the concern, but “business” should be the symbolic watchword. These two are all business about home, hearth, career, love and possessions. The Capricorn leads the pairing in humor, political savvy and verbal jousting, though it is essentially shy; it uses humor and cleverness as a way to get through uncomfortable encounters. Scorpio does the same thing, using badinage and open charm to disguise their actual intent and holding their real feelings back, so as not to be self-disclosing. Speaking of self-disclosing, Capricorn probably won’t make an issue of what Scorpio is holding back. They hold back many things naturally, and the idea that someone else is holding back does not constitute a reason to conduct an investigation. Since Scorpio is used to people wondering what they are holding back, this can be a cause of harmony in the relationship.

Both of these signs are motivated by religious and philosophical underpinnings. Scorpio can have some pretty dogmatic religious ideas and can be sometimes tedious with expressing those beliefs. Capricorn however, is not excessively bothered by this. They are caught in a curious kind of “not caring” about many things. This gives them an ambivalence which makes even the Scorpio wonder about them. If a religious idea comes up, the Capricorn can pose a philosophical question to counter. One thing the Goat is not ambivalent about is dollars. Dollars are hard material things that the Goat gets. So too, with the budget-minded Scorpion. These again, have the same vibes about basic issues. What can they learn from each other? Doubtless, Capricorn lightens up the Scorpio “looking for trouble” tendency. Capricorn is careful and controlled, but easier about life in general. Scorpio benefits here. Scorpio gives Capricorn that sense of confidence that shy Capricorn can really take advantage of.

Positive Postulate: Capricorns are not going to get all theatrical about their goals. Their cute remarks, springing from their quiet and pixy manner are a great offset of that humming Scorpio turbine, adding a vague weight to what should be lighter manners. Capricorn gaining substantiality makes them a strong pair.

Romance Recommendation: The Goat and the Scorpion are not going to be trifling and irreverent and excessively carefree when it comes to romance. They are at least in the same book here, if not the same page. Since they do share basically the same romance values, they will approach each other with the respect and yes, even a little reverence, about the loving way people come to each other in surrender.

Conflict Quotient: Capricorn’s coolness lets it only fight about what really matters to them; and that is probably most always in a defensive mode, not offensive. Scorpio, so suspicious and secretive will only fight if something is super important to them. These are both “good” fighters, but see conflict like in “last resort” terms. There would be much emotion here, but most of it unacknowledged and very controlled.

Peace Parlay: Life in the end is repetitive and mundane, and so is Romance itself. This factor asks the question: "Can we be bored together over the long term?" Boredom for these two would be in between counting money and meeting new challenges. That boring “in between” time could be very restorative for both of them.

Keep Up The Interest Graph: If it’s in the budget, they will splurge on each other. Restrained individuals who let loose just a little bit will have tons of fun letting go. This may be all they need.

Seven Year Itchiness: There are some signs that by their nature are more stable in their love interests and family concerns as time goes on. Others are not. Scorpio would mutter, “What’s the deal with 7th year, I am always brimming with romantic ideation.” Capricorn would nod in agreement, not wanting to discuss how they felt inside; and then both would shake hands and trust each other, since they were in love and partnership, pursuing a strengthening relationship.


ASTROCOMPATIBILITY POSSIBILITY RATING: 70% Positive Long Term – 55% Short Term. How they would meet is not important. The fact that they did meet and experienced each other’s serious and shared value system would be notable as they got closer and closer. If there were no fundamental oppositional elements in their individual charts, and their appreciation for each other grew, they could have a relationship, partnership, marriage that worked quite harmoniously and perhaps very successfully.

Anonymous: Yes you are here to go through that process that you described, but Scorpios are here to give up on going through their complicated process. You are very advanced, but your mission is not to cause endless drama with your complicated Scorpio plans: ala: If he sits here he loves me. If I cry when he leaves then he loves me. If he doesn't respond just this way, then to hell with him. Scorp has to learn to transcend their own process. They get wasted, tired, angry and confused because of the Scorpion process. This is why people don't react too well. They take offense when you don't want them to. You are too busy figuring out why you are so complex. Guess what? Once you give that up and use your natural Scor abilities, you will be happier. There's an old phrase: "Let go and let God". If you are not religious it means: "Let go and allow the Processes whirling about you to settle with each other and let their will be done."

Btw, some might think I lack confidence, and that it should always be only the man tweaking out like this. I might lack confidence, I don't know. I do know that I think about things A LOT. I have a habit of trying to control how things happen, and when they don't go that way, I get depressed and take things to the extreme emotionally. You already know I believe a lot of that has to do with who I am, otherwise I would not be here. I didn't come here for pity. I came to try and figure shit out.

anonymous on February 03, 2012:

I'm a Scorpio girl (Nov. 8th) who's kind of into this Capricorn guy (Jan. 15th.) I'd thought he was, also, on Wednesday because we saw eachother often and he definitely expressed an interest in trying to know me/paid attention to me. However, the next day was hell for a few job & ex related reasons, along with the fact that this new guy and I kept bumping into eachother. It wasn't awkward for me, but that's because I know I'm a bit attracted to him. But he wasn't nearly as talkative as he'd been the day before and I have no idea what's on his mind. At least, I didn't, until he saw me cry. At the end of the day, I was so stressed. I sat by the bench for my bus knowing he goes there also, so I could try and convince myself whether he was or was not annoyed with me. Within seconds I started tearing up, and that's when he walked by with a friend of mine - she does have a bf but the shock did not help, and I broke down. Thankfully I could tell he wasn't annoyed, but now I have no clue, because the girl sat down and talked to me while he tried to give us space. I feel pathetic even though I feel it happened the way it was meant to. I didn't want anyone to see me like that, especially not him, but he did. So I feel now its up to whoever controls these sorts of things.

shy and confuse capricorn boi on July 07, 2011:

Most of the pasts in here are true so far, pretty much i' m in the long term possibility, so what happens next is that I get myself suspicious and Scorpio's hunt me down or be more practical and go with the flow

p.s LOL

randomme on May 07, 2011:

capricorns are supposed to be boring,practical and hard working arent they? well that's exactly the opposite to one capricorn i know...

me on February 01, 2011:

haha @mm

ya it's voiced my exact fears...we ARE too stable and that translates to boring

I hardly ever am brimming with curiosity or into anything with all that passion...slow, steady and calm is my motto

but not particularly conducive to romance is it?

Russianlike on December 11, 2010:

Me being a Capricorn, i'd like to take a stab at defending against that whole boring thing. There I go defending...ha..! I have publicly called myself out as boring because I honestly can watch paint dry and enjoy being in my own head..but then again lets just say I'm the first one to suggest skinny dipping or getting VIP service via spontneity and humor. So we tend to be on the extremes of the spectrum from boring to down for anything, its just sometimes finding what pushes our bottons in either direction.

scorpio_gurl on November 27, 2010:

How does an impatient scorpio win a capricorn over? I'm receiving mixed from this goat.

mm on May 30, 2010:

its all so true but i cant help but notice it sounds boring and that's my problem with my capricorn man- too much stability, too much boredom

Xav on March 29, 2010:
