The Suns ingress into the cardinal sign Capricorn marks the winter solstice bringing with it the beginning of the new season and new beginnings. Capricorn is symbolized by the sea-goat, and If you're like me, you've never heard of a sea-goat, welcome to the club. A sea goat is a goat with the tail of a fish symbolizing Capricorn's ability to make themselves at home in both the physical and the spiritual realms. This symbology hints at the natural magnetic attraction between water signs and Capricorn. In this instance, we look at the relationship between Scorpio & Capricorn.
Earth meets Water
Capricorn is an earth sign and is known to be dry, brittle, and preoccupied with material success. Sorry Capricorn, but these are the things being said behind your back, and I'd be remiss if I didn't agree that there was some truth to it. That's one reason why Capricorn appreciates Scorpio, for their honesty. Scorpio dives deep into answers, and Capricorn is eager to swim, soaking up the wisdom behind the action. Capricorn's ambition catches the eye of Scorpio, who is concerned with power, and Capricorn knows how to get it. Contrary to popular belief, Capricorns aren't dry on purpose, their ambition drives them to create plans, and consistent practicality keeps them too busy to be attached to your hip.
The Achilles Heel
Scorpio is a water sign and is known to be obsessive, secretive, and power-hungry. Obsession is a symptom of passion, and the object of obsession can be healthy or destructive. With Capricorn, Scorpio is focused and encouraged to not just talk about it but be about it. Whether its tough love or harsh criticism, it comes bluntly, and Scorpio knows it comes from a loving place. Capricorn is not about wasting time, even though they may prove to be a hypocrite in that area, they are attracted by the passion Scorpio puts towards their visons but is turned off when they fail to do anything about it. Scorpio's procrastination can become the Achilles heel of a Capricorn-Scorpio relationship. Scorpio would be wise to remain conscious of how their time is spent. Vices and overindulgence of pleasures create distractions that become the downfall of power, Scorpio's biggest desire.
Will it Work?
Scorpio and Capricorn are healthy together, they push each other to grow, and their obsession for power and the recognition that success brings creates a bond deeper and vaster than any ocean. Capricorn is responsible, and this will naturally influence Scorpio away from destructive habits. Capricorn can be stubborn, and only someone they respect will have any chance of getting them out of their stupor. It is essential for Scorpio always to maintain Capricorn's respect, once this is gone, Capricorn may succumb to conveniences outside of Scorpio. Capricorn keeps Scorpio soothed with their mellow demeanor, making it easy to open up to them and share everyone else's secrets with them. Just kidding, but it isn't Scorpio that's secretive but the people whom they choose to share their info. These two work well together and easily reach the heights of success if in alignment with not only each other but with Self.
