Scorpio Man and Capricorn Woman Compatibility

Famous Scorpio-Capricorn Couples:

Mike Nichols and Diana Sawyer; Zhang Yimou and Gong Li

Talk about power couples. When these two combine they are interested in material power, wealth, status and control. Each is dead serious about making it to the top no matter what it takes. Do or die. They are unforgiving about mistakes and absolutely intend to surmount all obstacles to achieve their particular type of fame and fortune.

How to Attract a Capricorn Woman as a Scorpio Man:

You have to impress your Capricorn lady with your power and self-control. She is looking for someone who has mastered the material world, an alpha male with money who knows how to use it. Be prepared to impress her with well-chosen gifts, neither too lavish nor too cheap. Everything you do should be in impeccably good taste and speak to your appreciation of quality. Use words like “responsibility,” “authority,” “commitment,” and “dedication” if you want to get her attention. Take yourself seriously and she will, too. It wouldn’t hurt to dress nicely, either, especially with some signature clothes.  Oh, and save your vulnerability rap for another girl. Show this one weakness, hesitation, or ambivalence and you may never see her again.

How to Attract a Scorpio Man as a Capricorn Woman:

While your natural inclination is to  be professional, Scorpio will find this crass at worst and boring at best. So do what you can to be subtle and mysterious.  Scorpio men are consciously or unconsciously looking for someone to seduce or a mystery to solve.  Don’t be too sophisticated or racy and, if you possibly can, allude to a past full of secrets.

Degree of Romance:

This is basically a business partnership with little room for romance. Each party tends to bring out the seriousness in the other. Combined, these two feel romance is frivolous and a waste of time.

Degree of Passion:

There is an intense degree of passion here; however, it is directed towards career goals, material possessions, and business opportunities. That is a lot to share and both partners face the world in the same direction.

Degree of Friendship:

Friendship is a word that is taken very seriously by these two, and it probably means more than friendship. They are dead serious about loyalty, keeping confidences, and intimacy, which they consider non-negotiable commodities. Each can be cold and is capable of using — or at least stepping over — people in a climb to the top. Yes, Scorpio and Capricorn have a lot in common, but I wouldn’t call it a disinterested friendship.

Degree of Marriage:

This couple has an excellent chance of making it in marriage as long as both are competent and committed. Problems begin if one partner shows weakness or lack of will power. The stronger one may just step over a faltering spouse to keep on moving forward.

Progression of Relationship:

There is a period of foreplay before the deal is done, but both parties know what is expected of them and what the meeting is all about: closure. These are high stakes players and everything means something.  The implication is that if you sleep together, marriage is in the works.  This may or may not work out, but that’s the mutual expectation.


There is an element of domination and surrender that characterizes sex, and these are big components of the Scorpio Capricorn dynamic. The Capricorn lady may actually be trying to get Scorpio to submit to her greater will. The more subtly he protests, the more of a neurotic thrill it is for her to force him. Most Capricorns are wonderful lovers because, being an earth sign, they are comfortable in a physical body. She can help ground Scorpio’s tumultuous emotions. Since this is something  he can’t do for himself, it can create a very intimate bond. The Scorpion may be able to “let go” with her more than any other sign, but that’s a secret just between the two of them.

When It’s Over:

When it’s over expect to be deleted, annihilated, and destroyed. No two people can turn colder faster when the fire burns out. Neither party will take a break up lightly. Try not to react like the mafia. Watch out for bank accounts and other shared possessions.

  1. earthy poison lust.March 9, 2017 at 7:08 pm

    I am a Capricorn woman who has been with a Scorpio man for about two months. Our first date was a whirlwind. and we had a blast…danced, drank, talked, kissed, HAD SEX!! I couldn’t resist…I was that drawn in by him. What is interesting is that I am not usually open with a person I meet initially, but after fifteen minutes and one drink I was spilling my guts to him. Since the first date we have not spent more than one day apart at a time. Every time I know he is on his way to see me I get excited like a little kid waiting for Christmas morning. I have never felt this child-like urge for someone before, and the passion is incredible. One of the things that really draws me to this Scorpio man is the fact that he is a gentleman, real, and emotionally open with me. I had dated a Scorpio man before this one, and he was more of the player type. not always around and very ungrounded. My current Scorpio man is grounded, hard working and mature. He cherishes me and puts me on a pedestal. which we all know ladies is exactly what a Capricorn woman wants. Also, the fact that he is cultured (speaks four languages- my favorite is when he speaks to me in Italian) and can COOK!- boy can the man cook! He is concerned with all aspects of my life and shows interest in protecting me from any downers that I may come upon. Like someone previously mentioned, Scorpio men are knights in shining armor…and I am very excited to see where this relationship goes. I am trying my best to put my cynic ways aside and hope for the best in this relationship. A word of advice for capi women….if a Scorpio man reaches out his hand, please grab it and let him know you don’t want to let go! Trust, communication and (if your a dependent type of cap) loyal to the last drop. Good luck in love! I found my pot of gold 🙂

  2. Yes, I must honestly say from the depths of my soul that I agree, its time to move on, this cycle has ran its course, and feel we have hit the point where evaluation has become necessary and its time to find someone who is really serious about a future together who will reciprocate love the way love is meant to be, all the unnecessary chaos has become tiring; for me at least, unconditional love is not for everyone and the same love that has made me stayed is the same love that has sent me to the edge….its either letting go or go insane.
    Cj I love you, I truly do with everything in me, but to me you are not quite sure if you are ready for love, not for the kind of love I have to share and wanted to share with no one else but you, for me; I take a commitment very seriously whether its in a marriage or in a relationship – I have stayed away from love for so long until I met you, you’ve awaken something in me that everyday I still wonder to myself how it happened or when it happened and even why, but now babe, I have to go because this is not healthy for either of us, its become soul destroying and also know I have to suck it up and watch you leave as well, because this pain is just too much for both of us to bear, especially because majority of the struggle between us is internal.
    I really wish we had given this a chance…chances are whatever never started between us is now over. 🙁

  3. Boy oh boy my life is the story of the century; things ppl only imagine in their mind with the absolute certainty that no such things ever really happens in real life….. Even I myself question if this is all a dream and I will soon be awaken from it and forget any of it ever truly happened….smh

    Latest News (worth sharing): Earlier Tonight Sept 11, 2016, strolling downtown after work, admiring the beautifully orchestrated architectural skyscraper buildings and wandering throughout the busy thoroughfare, I approached a monument in memory of and acknowledging and execising tribute to persons who lost their life at their job due to office accidents, it stated that the purpose of it is to drive awaeness so the same incidents aren’t repeated in the workplace, so the names are displayed on a long wall along the side walk so as I walked I was reading all the names and the causes of death affiliated to each , then I stopped and said to myself if I ever see that SOMEONE NAME I will just scream like an idiot, I dont know but why it was just a silly thought due to all the strange series of occurrences I had been experiencing all weekend, so I proceeded down the line and continue reading to my surpise I saw my own name and the cause of death was poisoning so I smiled and continue reading, at this time ppl maybe thought I was crazy smiling at the plaque that had inscription of a deceased, so I continued walking and reading then about 4 names later OMaGash, this must be a joke of the freakin universe HIS NAME and cause of death ” lost balance and fell while climbing a ladder”….died November 1957….. So I took out my phone and took a oic right away, my friend said do u know him lolol so I said no, I know someone with the same name so my friend said oh really so u gonna show it to him, so I said no lolol but i just wanted to take a picture, my friend laugh at me and walk away from beside me because I was smiling like an idiot….(sigh) – all I can say is life is one big road with a lot of signs, and no matter the detour; we will get exactly where we need to be.

    I hope tomorrow I can be in peace 🙂

  4. I believe that is among the so much significant info for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. However want to statement on some common things,
    The website taste is wonderful, the articles is in reality nice : D.

    Just right job, cheers

  5. I had a classmate who is a Scorpio, a year older than me, well I like to goofs around him because he’s funny to be played with (I mean most of us makes fun out of him), but I noticed that among all the female in the class, I’m the only one he bravely bullies and constantly picking on me when he had the chances to do so. I once told the lecturer that he likes to bully me because I’m just done with his playfulness but the I regret by doing so since the lecturer directly told him thats not how you flirts with a girl in front of our class. The guy in the class was all wearing this smirking expression and I just let this pass (eventhough they bullied me for this from one time to another time).

    So one day, I suddenly felt like grabbing his phone and want to see contains in it (I usually do that to my Fem Cancer, Fem Taurus and Male Aries bff too), so I grab his phones and ask him what’s in it, he seems flustered and demands me to give him back but I didn’t so he tried he best to pull his phone back. When I failed to hold longer his phone, he put a password on his phone and gave it back to me. I sulked at him whats the point of giving me this now and he just shrugged it off like a boss. Then I took his wallet which is lying just in front of my eyes for revenge and put it back on my bag then I told him to buy me foods with his money, which he’s a bit reluctant because he really wants his wallet back and I find this funny.

    My male Virgo friend sees this and ask me if there’s something going on with this Scorpio (since the Scorpio is his housemate). I’m just like what do you mean by that (because as a Capricorns when I feel comfortable with that someone I just show my unusual side to them, fortunately to most of my classmates lol), he then likes the idea of me being in in a relationship with the Scorpio, because it’s obvious he tried to get me and him together in class, telling the Scorpio that it was sweet of him helping of me (when he just help me configuring the computer problems), he even told me that the Scorpio guy is indeed a good guy and a good boyfriend/husband material. But I’m still studying so relationship doesn’t seem like a good idea for me since I still need to develop myself for my own future ahead.

    So when I sees this to check if we were really compatible to each other but I must say that I’m not yet ready to be in a relationship, I’m just curious of how Scorpios really are haha. But oh well I know Scorpios are awesome though I have bunch of Scorpios friend and most of them have sense of humour and great. (:

  6. Hi. I am a scorpio gentleman and it’s been over four months since i started dating this scorpio lady. I must say, the combination of us is perfect and as usual it’s very intense and complicated. It always confuses people around us, i mean people are always judging our relationship wrongly. I really can’t blame them, one minute we are close and one minute we giving each other some air to breath. If you are considering dating a scorpio man let me warn you, do not get too distant to a scorpio man!!!!!! We scorpio men have no room for waiting for things we’ve already had. I mean we are too fast and we trust no one with our hearts so easily and if you earned it then it’s all yours and be careful not to mess it up, if you do then you messed it up for the other ladies as well. One thing about the scorpio lady i am dating is the inability to be open and express her feelings to me free. Revenge is our number one motto and i’ve used that against her so that it’s 50/50 so when She is not open rhen i won’t be. Simple as that, i hope y’all ladies have some little clues about us the mysterious SCORPIOS. #EspeciallyMention

  7. He just wants to have fun and joy. The reason that he’s not going to have a serious relationship is that he wants to escape responsibilities. He just isn’t man enough to face the troubles that comes with being in a serious relationship.

  8. run away as fast you can & asap 🙂

  9. I am capricorn woman just started dating a scorpio man who says he doesnt want a serious relationship but makes love to me like he does. He calls me like we in a relationship & we talk & laugh like we in a relationship. We are amzing in bed together, but i am not sure if he means it because he says he doesnt want a relationship. I am falling for him & everyday we getting closer to each other, hoping its not just the great sex . Is that just a scorpian Man Trait???? He has had to bad relationships that didnt end well….

  10. I have 2 scorpio parents 2 scorpio grandparents a scorpio daughter & ex husband- inevitability once again my current bf is a scorpio. I know them inside out its like bees to honey scorpio capricorn but I’m so fed up with them! I show my feelings , half the time I wonder if he even likes me but when I get too far away and almost leave he finally shows me again that he loves me. I really want another earth sign man….

  11. Wow. Boo Boo. My experience with a Scorpio was exactly the same. And I feel exactly what you feel. Its as if they are in a relationship with themselves.

  12. I Wasted Three Years Of My Life On A Scorpio Man Who Put Me Down Every Day, Thought He Was Better Than The Rest, And Every Time I Turned Around It Was My Fault, Nothing But A Control Freak, Made Me Feel Weak, And Me As A Capricorn Girl, All I Attract Are SCORPIOS, They Act Like Real Tough Asses. We Had Good Times – Sorta , But In The End It Was Just All About Them, Never Having Time, Never Got Their Own Jobs Finished, They Are A Real Piece Of Work, Oh Lies, They Are Good At It, Very Kniving, Very Sneaky, And Over The Past Couple Years All The Scorpios I Met Where The Same AS The First Imagine That ;D! Yeah They Are Great At Sex, Make You Feel Loved When THEY WANT To Make You Feel Loved. Haha. You Try So Hard To Please Them Its Not Enough… I Wont Ever Go For A Scorpio Again, Much Love <3 (;

  13. Agree. I love SCORPIOS they are the best lovers for us and as well a Capricorn’s BEST friend. They are also the best MATES in bed, so whenever where ruthless they can handle our ruthlessness and get ruthless as well, but in the end it gets even better, yet hotter. Were both strong-willed and very similar and this is the only sign that can understand and stisfy, yet read and know what a Capricorn wnats and don’t wants. Scorpio are the best.

  14. recently dis really hot scorpio guy sort of asked me out…i was happy about it but he confuses me sooo much! he tells me he loves me..den he changes d topic! i dont know wat to do!! pls helpp

  15. to wide eyed person
    how can you hate sags women ?
    we’re so get-along-able D;
    its the sag men that are annoying
    especially when there extremely smart D: lol

  16. I recently met a Scorpio, I should say re met. Our story is kind of funny…he used to be my personal trainer who I just found extremely i remet him at a local bar realized we went to the same school met up there, he took me on a valentines date and got me the perfect gifts…as a capricorn i appreciate sentimental and thoughtful things…a picture framed of us, a big cross gaudy cross necklace which i wear a different one everyday and he took note of…and a feathered rose. Where extremely opposite..he is a completely buff sexy dude and im a thick girl with tattoos and piercings were such a odd pair but people tell us we work. He is very over protective and I love it! I really never felt safer with any one and I’m completely okay with the dominance. Finally a real, thoughtful, sexy man!!!! I recently really hurt him though extremely bad. He is finally coming around but scorpios will let you know and make sure you feel 10 fold the pain of what you did to them in the first place…

  17. I’m a Scorpio male, my new sweetheart is a Capricorn, 1st time for me, and the last. Married an Aquarian and found out how many men she loved. She killed the passion and in me. I was gun for many years, sisn’t want a relationship. I tried dating sites, bars, etc. But that’s not being myself. I met Ms. Capricorn and she flipped me around to being myself again. These women are amazing. I am learning to be patient simply because I know she is the only woman who will understand me. Scorpios are defied by many because of our traits, but a Capricorn shows true appreciation, passion, and devotion. That’s a Scorpio weakness ladies! Trust is also a MAJOR characteristic that has to be rock solid. My Capricorn lady discovered that I had visted other women before I met her. Jealousy? Must be, I like it. It told me that I do not want another woman in my life but her. Scorpios can be faithful and committed with the right lady. Capricorns are perfect for a Scorpio. That is the security we need to protect the true sincerity of of our heart. I am falling in love with my Capricorn lady simply because there is nothing about her I would want to change.

  18. please help!!! last summer i met a scorpio man who wa actually my boss. He didnt spoke with me for two weeks , thought that i am too unsymphatical… he was always stearing at me and bugging me all the time ith ironical jokes. i didnt pay him attention because his fresh married , and i could not do a thing in this situation. its confusing because he always sas to me that i should stay longer . just dont get thepoint because some occasions hes really nice and the other really cold i mean really mean…

    at he end when i was leaving he didnt hug me as last time , just took this proffessional face and shook hands, but it couldclearly feel that he wasnt comfortable with the situation.

    the air between us its intense mean you can feel real chemistry but very deeply though , have no ideea f the others feel it , because both we are very good at hiding it.

    i am a cap and i have been dating a scorpio for a year and three months. our relationship couldnt be any better, and the sex is amazing 🙂 the only thing wrong is we fight over everything and anything

  20. #10 i also have a cap friend and i do the same to her when under the influence…i thought maybe it was her writing your comment. Trust me wen he’s drunk he’s real.

  21. Sometimes we’ll actually wait to say stuff like a confession or other loving words while under the influence, so we know beforehand we can sort of hide behind that in order to remain in the dark about our true feelings when we’re sober. The shyness is pretty common, & it almost assuredly means he really does like you. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t be going to all the trouble to be around you so much. When he’s backing off, it means he wants to take time to really get a good handle on the situation in his mind. You may try helping him be more decisive by being active in getting his attention, something you cap ladies are pretty good at. Let me know if any of this helps & how your experience with him goes from here, M.

  22. hi, i am a capricorn… i am sooo confuse… if a scorpio man likes me… his friends told me that he likes me and often bug him about it. and then he was drunk one day and asked me out and he told me that he likes me… but other times he protects me from other of his friends that are may be interested in me. he makes me sit beside him like he is hiding me. he tries to get my attention at times. but somehow i still dont know if he really likes me.. when he is drunk then he tells me about his fellings but when he is not he is soooo shy. is that normal? i hope someone can help me figure this scopio man out… is that normal or not? and he recently told me that his bestfriend also like me thats why he cant go out with me. whats up with that… then he pulls me in the corner and says that he wants me beside him always… and he does not want to let me go… but then again he is drunk when he told me this. i am always afraid to talk to him when he is drunk because i am afraid that he wont remember anything. help pls if any scorpio man here.

  23. If you’re up for studying it in greater depth, you may want to look at your decanates. This is the influencing sign within your element based on which of the 3 10-day blocks of the sign you’re in. An easy way to calculate it is just to know that the 1st decanate is your own sign, the physical aspect, the 2nd is the next on the wheel in your element, the mental aspect & the third is the last same element sign, the spiritual aspect.

    OMG I don’t get along with sag women at all – that’s def my sweet cap I want to hang onto LOL!

  25. Wide-eyedWonderNovember 23, 2010 at 1:37 am

    I am a scorp man and have been very close to a cap woman for the last 8 months. We first met as friends and once we realized the friendship was fraught with ‘potential’ 😀 we thought it would be foolish not to take things further. We agreed to remain friends even if things didn’t work out. And to date, there are no regrets whatsoever. She’s v romantic, quietly forceful, and extemely affectionate …..a very pleasant discovery. Love it! When I am with her I can be myself. Makes me feel complete – I guess that’s the yin yang thing at work. I admit I’m not so strong in the romance dept – but she’s patient…she had to lead me through it. Scorps tend to rely on their innate bottled-up 😀 passion to makeup for any lack of romance. But are always willing to go along if it makes the whole experience fulfilling for both.

But are always willing to go along if it makes the whole experience fulfilling for both.

  27. I am a Scorpio women who is dating a Capricorn man. We have been together since I was 15years old. I love him verry much. We work perfectly together and have a true understanding and respect for eachouther. He gets me like nobody els does. He is the more jelous of the two of us by far though, even though I am too at times. I would die for this man in a second and It has been that way since the first day i met him. We have an amazing sexual attraction that I have never felt with anybody els.&He really knows how to charm me and make me feel better. He is a hardworker and I apricate that in him. We are extreamly loyal and protective over eachouther. Though sometimes he can be agressive and get too worked up over little things from his jelous issues. I couldent go a day without my capricorn.<3

  28. I think this is one of the best matches for a Cap woman. I have a Scorp friend that has always just been in the background, observing. I was married to a Cancer and he never said anything to me or told me how he felt. When I broke up with the Cancer or should I say, two years ago when I started the break up process with the Cancer, he came out and told me how he felt. He has given me really great advice and he is protective and possessive in a way that makes me feel like I don’t have anything to fear in the world. I’m scared of being intimate with him though because I feel like I will end up getting pregnant. He has no children but he wants some with me. I already have kids with the cancer and I want all of my children to have the same father. Its one of those next lifetime things unless he is willing to wait until all of my kids are grown.

  29. im also a cap and my ex of 4 years is a scorpio. he was very possessive over me, which is a quality scorps tend to have. they feel and do everything with such intensity. at least thats how he was, when he was happy it was great and he made me feel like i was the most amazing woman in the world (seriously) but when he was mad, it was awful he made me feel so low, like dirt, but then would confess his undying love! i read in a book that scorpios are the most mis- understood sign in the zodiac because they feel everything so intensely, u never know what to think of them! even though i had to break up with him, we are friends now and i still love scorpios. they are very deep, interesting people and they have a mysterious aura to them that just makes u wanna know more…..

  30. hey manda, im a cap and my ex is a scorpio too…the reason why I was looking at this is i just spoke to him after a long time of not talking and it sparked my interest. The scorpio i was with in the beginning it was great, but than i began to become really possessive of him and I guess he got bored and talked to someone else. I found out and broke it off… I know Scorpio’s loves the chase and being wanted therefore he talked to other girls behind my back, but he never cheated… this relationship was back when we were young so it was very immature. Hope it helps you get some incites…im now with a cancer and its probably the best relationship i’ve ever had.

  31. So I’m a cap lady who has been dating a scorpio for a month now. It feels serious, and he seems very serious about me. I, for some reason, don’t things as serious..but I am a little insecure that he is missing his cancer ex girlfriend. I really hope not, and i’m trying to base our relationship on more than material things. We are both very ambitious people..which is something I LOVE about him. I’m hoping for the best, he really is a great man.
