Capricorn Sun Scorpio Rising
This might be the most reserved and mysterious sun sign/rising sign combination in the zodiac. These people are exceedingly tight-lipped and often “all-knowing.” And there’s a hell-bent fearlessness in these “take it on the chin” Capricorns that equips them to handle unreasonably demanding jobs that others avoid. You can find them doing a remarkable job teaching and mentoring developmentally challenged children or underprivileged or at-risk youngsters. They’ll fit almost any place where their authority is never questioned. Capricorns with Scorpio rising are especially adept in these types of roles because, among other things, they’re fiercely protective of people who depend on them. They’re just not the sort of individuals to shirk their responsibilities or let people down; the guilt factor always plays a big role with Scorpio.
Capricorns born in the wee hours have a good eye for profitable investments; they love to investigate and find out what’s happening behind the scenes, so they always do their homework. And their interest in business often leads them to careers related to insurance or lending. They enjoy jobs that allow them to handle confidential or privileged information and excel in positions that require the selective dispensing of sensitive data. However, they sometimes go overboard with their secrecy. These Capricorns just don’t feel that they owe anyone an explanation, so they attract suspicion to themselves by refusing to let people know what they’re up to. Once again, it’s the old Capricorn game of making things more difficult than they need to be. When their Mysterious Scorpio paranoia kicks in, they start treating even the most innocuous information like Top Secret files. They really need to put their cards on the table. After all, how else can they earn trust? Another Scorpio quality that might create havoc with responsible Capricorn is their intense desires that can build to ravenous cravings. Scorpio loves to overdo things, and that doesn’t sit well with Capricorn’s temperance. These full-throttle achievers can actually over-motivate themselves and end up with an intense, pushy avarice.
