Who doesn't wonder if they have a soulmate? Finding a person who completes you can be a dream come true.

But if you're a Capricorn zodiac sign, you might be skeptical if there are any Capricorn soulmates out there.

A soulmate isn't exactly practical, but with an open mind and heart, it's not impossible.

What zodiac signs are soulmates for Capricorn?

Born between December 21 - January 20, Capricorns can appear tough and serious.


But they have a light-hearted side as well, so a person who can handle their stern personality is best.

Capricorn needs a partner who can bring out that softer, more fun-loving side of them while still allowing them to get down to business when they feel the need.


Capricorn’s dry sense of humor and rigid practicality is not loved by all, but those who do mesh well with a Capricorn will see those qualities as witty and determined.

Capricorns can be very stubborn, so those who are able to balance them out need to do so in a way that a Capricorn would be receptive to.

Five zodiac signs that are Capricorn soulmates

1. Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

On the surface, Cancer and Capricorn can appear to be total opposites. But, as the saying goes, opposites attract.

This compatible opposition is because Cancer and Capricorn are sister signs, so they are opposite each other on the zodiac calendar.

Cancer’s water element gives them an innate understanding of emotions, whereas Capricorn’s dominant logical side can make them come off as cold.


However, Cancer’s empathy can soften some of Capricorn’s edges and can prompt Capricorn to reveal more of their hidden emotions because they feel safe with their Cancer partner.

On the flip side, Capricorn can keep Cancer more grounded and get them to think more of the rational side of things instead of being swept up entirely by emotion.

These two signs also have a lot in common when you look a little closer.

Both Cancer and Capricorn are cardinal signs meaning they like to take initiative and love to start new things.

In these new ventures, their differences can enhance whatever it is the couple is doing because of the combination of the head, Capricorn, and the heart, Cancer.

2. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Capricorn and Scorpio are both seen as quite edgy. They are a dynamic dark duo.

Despite their hard exterior, Scorpio is still strongly connected to emotion because of its water element.

Plus, Scorpio’s hard on the outside, soft on the inside attitudes make Capricorn feel comfortable because they, too, prefer to only reveal their emotions to those very close to them.

While Capricorn is a go-getter cardinal sign, Scorpio’s fixed modality helps Capricorn follow through with their goals because cardinal modalities are more about starting things than finishing them.


Both of these signs tend to be introverted and pessimistic.

When Capricorn and Scorpio are paired up, they enjoy snickering at the dullness of others and the darkness of the world.

They will be perfectly content having just each other in their own little worlds.

3. Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Capricorn is charmed, but not fooled, by Leo’s grandstanding.

Leo adds some excitement and flair to pragmatic Capricorn’s life while Capricorn brings Leo down to earth and gets them to think more realistically.

These two balance each other’s weaknesses and amplify each other’s strengths.


Sociable Leo can bring loner Capricorn out of their shell. On the other hand, Capricorn can get dreamer Leo to get more serious about accomplishing their goals.

As fixed (Leo) and cardinal (Capricorn) zodiac signs, Leo and Capricorn are very goal-oriented. They encourage and support one another while also bringing different perspectives to the table.

These two signs also love material things. Gift-giving is probably their love language.

This is not to say that they are superficial or shallow, they just both like a tangible reward for their hard work and physical ways to show their emotions.

4. Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Capricorn and Virgo are both earth signs, so they get each other on a fundamental level.

They are both realistic and rely on what is in front of them, which is sure to be true.

Capricorn may focus on big picture ideas while Virgo is detail-oriented, creating a well-rounded view when they put their heads together.

Virgo is represented by the virgin, often even the Virgin Mary. This emblem mixed with Virgo’s harvest season birthday makes them very nurturing and emotional for an earth sign.

This can be exactly what a Capricorn needs because they can be so private about, even bottle up, their emotions.


Virgo’s ruling planet is Mercury, the god of communication, which can help them break through Capricorn’s walls. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, signifying structure, which appeals to Virgo’s need for orderliness.

These two complement each other in many ways and synchronize with each other in many others.

5. Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

Oddball Aquarius and serious Capricorn actually make a great match.

Aquarius can get Capricorn to look at things a little differently, opening up their mind. Capricorn can keep Aquarius rooted in reality rather than lost in their own world.


Both of these signs are ruled by Saturn, giving them a mutual love for intellect and practicality even if Aquarius puts their own imaginative spin on things.

Neither of these signs really care about what anyone else thinks about them, so when they’re together Aquarius and Capricorn can be authentically themselves and laugh at all the haters.

Aquarius can free up some of Capricorn’s rigidity.

At the same time, Capricorn can let Aquarius indulge in their more structured side from their ruling planet where their air element competes.
