How do two megastars with seemingly very different lifestyles fall in love? has plenty to teach us about it! Find out the real story behind the astrological compatibility of pop icon Katy Perry and silver-screen star Orlando Bloom with my latest celebrity relationship analysis!
When Katy Perry wrote the lyrics to her breakout record One of the Boys, she was already foreshadowing her passionate relationship with Pirates of the Caribbean stud Orlando Bloom with the song “Hot n Cold.”
If you’ve kept up with Katy and Orlando’s blazing love affair through Instagram or blogs, you already know that the relationship between a Scorpio woman and Capricorn man is anything but boring.
In relationships, Scorpios tend to seduce and charm their lovers, slowly drawing them in with their magnetic personality.
Anyone can see that Katy Perry is a confident and seductive woman. From her fashion to her lyrics, she boldly expresses her sexuality and personality.
Capricorns, on the other hand, take a more slow and methodical approach to love. Instead of seducing their mate, they will act standoffish, hiding their true feelings until they know the relationship has long-term potential.
Based on his previous marriage and remarks that Katy and Orlando have made, it’s clear that Orlando wasn’t itching to settle down again and start a new family.
But with Katy’s irresistible smile and heartwarming voice, it’s no surprise that she broke down Orlando’s emotional walls, which eventually lead to their engagement and the birth of Daisy, the couple’s first child.
So, are Katy and Orlando a match made in heaven? Or is the couple’s Scorpio-Capricorn love connection too good to be true?
Let’s look deeper into the couple’s love compatibility and find out.
Trendsetting, loyal, confident, brave, focused — all words I would use to describe the dynamic Scorpio woman and legendary singer Katy Perry.
Born into a traditional Christian family on October 25, 1984, in Santa Barbara, California, Katy Perry is what I call a Scorpio triple threat in astrology. Katy Perry is a Scorpio Sun, Scorpio Rising, and Scorpio Moon.
As a fixed water sign, Scorpios are naturally self-motivated and ambitious individuals. They will pursue (and occasionally obsess over) their goals until the end of time.
With Katy’s Rising sign in Scorpio, she will naturally possess a desire to attract opportunities that bring her a high level of wealth and fame.
Katy’s Scorpio Sun is placed in the twelfth house. In astrology, the twelfth house signifies an experience of ending, solitude, self-reflection, surrender, and loss.
Based on my experience as a relationship astrologer, I’ve found that women with the Sun in their twelfth house tend to have a dual personality or struggle with showing the world who they are.
Because Katy’s Scorpio Sun is placed in the twelfth house, she had to overcome her fear of others’ opinions to reach her true potential. I believe Katy’s Sun in the twelfth house explains why she had to stop singing gospel music and formally change her stage name before she fully stepped into a life of recognition and fame.
At the same time, Katy’s Scorpio Moon brings balance and harmony to her Rising and Sun in Scorpio placements.
When her twelfth house Scorpio Sun is feeling timid and sad, her Scorpio Moon reminds her it’s okay to feel what you feel — but keep going because life moves on.
Interestingly, Katy’s dominant water nature is thrown off balance by her Venus in Sagittarius. As a mutable fire sign, Sagittarius is the exact opposite of her fixed Scorpio nature.
Sagittarius is adventurous, impulsive, easy-going, and occasionally overly optimistic. And as an uncomfortable fire and water match, Scorpio’s perfectionist nature struggles with Sagittarius’s restlessness, and this can cause discord in Katy’s relationships if she’s not careful.
In astrology, Venus represents the type of love Katy is attracted to. Venus in Sagittarius means that Katy is attracted to men who are outgoing, spontaneous, and passionate.
However, with Mars (representing how she acts in love) in sturdy earth sign Capricorn, Katy will secretly want the man who is patient and trustworthy. She wants a man that’s not afraid to put in the time and do the hard work.
In love, Capricorn is solid and commitment-focused. Capricorns do not like to rush.
At the same time, Katy’s stubborn nature (Scorpio placements) may interfere with Mars in Capricorn’s desire to create a long-lasting relationship.
Even so, I believe that Katy’s Scorpio placements can support the seriousness of her Mars in Capricorn. This means that once she falls in true love, it is almost impossible to fall out.
It’s all or nothing for the controversial “I Kissed a Girl ” sex symbol and pop queen.
When it comes to the handsome and beloved Orlando Bloom, he’s what I call a mixed bag of astrological energies.
Unlike his Scorpio dominant future wife and lifetime lover, Katy Perry, Orlando’s Sun, Rising, and Moon sign are all in different elements, meaning he is a unique and multi-faceted person.
Born on January 13, 1977, in Kent, England, Orlando Bloom is a grounded Capricorn Sun, enlightened Aquarius Rising, and observant Scorpio Moon.
As a Capricorn Sun, I’m not surprised that Orlando Bloom slowly worked his way up the acting ladder until his breakout film.
Capricorn’s are represented by the tenth zodiac sign in astrology. They signify traditionalism, perseverance, responsibility, status, and long-term material wealth.
Because Orlando’s Sun is in Capricorn he will naturally exhibit these same traits.
Like his fiancée, Katy Perry, Orlando’s Capricorn Sun is placed in his twelfth house of secrecy and self-reflection. Because his Sun is placed in his twelfth house of privacy, Orlando’s personality may come across extremely reserved and quiet-natured.
What I love about this placement is that Capricorns are natural planners, and the twelfth house is often associated with dreams; therefore, Orlando is what I would call a practical dreamer — he knows how to creatively execute the most grandiose of plans.
However, don’t be fooled by Orlando’s quiet and laid-back demeanor. Because underneath the surface lives a free-spirited and innovative Aquarius Rising.
Aquarius in astrology is represented by a fixed air sign, meaning they are naturally intellectual, multifaceted, opinionated, and progressive individuals who serve the global population in a major way.
For example, Christina Aguilera is an Aquarius Rising, Nicki Minaj is an Aquarius Rising, David Lynch is an Aquarius Rising, and John Travolta is an Aquarius Rising. All are famous for their groundbreaking presence in their particular industry.
As one of the leading characters in the breakthrough fantasy series The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and later the action-packed Pirates of the Caribbean, Bloom is known for his profound ability to portray complex characters in futuristic films.
On an emotional level, Orlando’s Scorpio Moon brings intensity, depth, and feeling to his detached personality.
In astrology, Scorpio Moons are often considered the holders of secrets. They portray an unshakable intuitive nature that blooms with self-mastery over time.
As fixed water signs, meaning they like to get their way, Scorpio Moons are deeply penetrating and jealous lovers with a keen desire to be with someone mysterious, sexual, and open to exploring the untold mysteries of life.
Katy Perry is also a Scorpio Moon. I believe this showcases their shared love of chaos, bold styles, and erotic beauty.
When it comes to the type of love he desires, Orlando’s Venus is in Pisces.
In astrology, Venus in Pisces represents a spiritual and overly giving love nature. Pisces is a mutable water sign, so it likes to talk about its emotions and feelings, rather than acting them out.
Because of Orlando’s Venus in Pisces, he is most attracted to the caring and nurturing woman. Someone who is kind-hearted and self-aware. Someone who is in tune with her feelings and emotions.
It’s no secret that Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are one of this generation’s most influential celebrity couples.
As two of the best artists in the world, their love is a constantly trending topic.
But as two of the Zodiac’s most private signs, Scorpio and Capricorn are notorious for living double lives. For couples with this combination, they are skillful masters at maintaining the fine line between the personal and the public.
With both their Mars placements (how they behave and make decisions in everyday life) in ambitious Capricorn, this power couple will always put their work and family obligations first.
Both Orlando and Katy will do whatever it takes to make their nontraditional relationship flourish.
As a relationship astrologer, I’ve found that Scorpio and Capricorn seem to have an intensely professional bond. Both are highly motivated signs that value emotional security and generational wealth.
Once they fully commit and learn to overcome their emotional differences, I believe that the love match of Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry is a true testament to the modern Scorpio and Capricorn romance.
However, adapting to and accepting their contradicting schedules will be the biggest challenge they must overcome.
Overview of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Sun Sign Compatibility
Based on their Sun sign compatibility alone, Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom are quite an interesting match.
For starters, Scorpio and Capricorn are both stubborn signs who love affection but don’t like showing it until they feel their partner has earned it.
So from the very beginning, I believe that Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom engaged in a playful game of tug of war. As an assertive Scorpio, Katy probably initiated the romance, and as a mature Capricorn, Orlando most likely played hard to get but found her confident sexuality impossible to resist.
Because their Zodiac signs are two signs apart, they form a supporting aspect in astrology called a sextile, which means they will naturally enhance each other’s growth.
As the water sign in the relationship, Katy’s Scorpio Sun brings a depth of emotion, sensitivity, and introspection. She influences Orlando’s rigid Capricorn Sun to loosen up and be more open and transparent with his true desires in life.
With Orlando being the earth sign in the relationship, his Capricorn Sun brings stability, longevity, and practical sense to Katy’s occasionally self-destructive Scorpio Sun. He encourages Katy to gain control over her powerful emotions and continue to channel them into her art.
If I could give Orlando and Katy some advice based on their Sun Sign compatibility, I would remind them that they are both equals and share similar feelings for one another, regardless of whether they are always expressed well or not.
Because Scorpio and Capricorn are naturally a good love match (and both signs who enjoy a solid routine), they can sometimes feel forced to try new things or liven their relationship up. Instead of looking outside the relationship for mental and physical stimulation, they need to communicate, communicate, communicate.
With Katy’s dominant Scorpio Sun, she tends to suppress her emotions, rather than being transparent and telling Orlando what’s on her mind.
To avoid conflict, Katy, you need to be more vulnerable. Don’t be afraid to let your walls down.
And Orlando, try to be more affectionate. Rub her back, kiss her forehead, give her the constant physical reminders that she needs to feel loved.
Overview of Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom Moon Sign Compatibility
When it comes to Katy and Orlando’s Moon sign compatibility, I would say they have the potential to be the perfect match.
Born in different years with different skies, Katy and Orlando are both charismatic Scorpio Moons. Although you would assume that same-sign partnerships would be an instant match made in heaven, I’ve found that these relationships only work when both partners are self-aware and emotionally mature.
On the other hand, the potential soulmate connection of a Scorpio-Scorpio Moon pairing is one for the history books. Out of all the moon pairing matches, I believe this one is the most intense.
From compulsive personalities, ecstatic sex, to raging jealousy, I guarantee this dynamic Scorpio moon pairing has been through it all.
What I love about this pairing is their ability to transcend the traditional social standards and create a hidden world all their own.
As the mystical eighth sign of the Zodiac, and the alchemical child of Pluto, ruler of the underworld, Scorpios are known for their hidden superpower: the capacity to take anything and transform it until it’s reborn.
Because of Scorpio’s association with death and the soul, I wouldn’t be shocked if Katy and Orlando feel that their love is a karmic bond.
Scorpios are fixed signs, which means they will be devoted to each other, and now their daughter, until the end of time.
Based on their Moon sign compatibility, I would encourage Katy and Orlando to prioritize a healthy balance between their romance with each other and relationship with themselves.
While Scorpios can have extreme self-control, they can be extreme self-sabotagers too. So, to keep the flow in their relationship, they will need to spend time with other people, or they will become obsessed and consumed with each other. And this soul-penetrating obsession can be the very reason a relationship fails.
Overall, I would give Katy and Orlando’s a love compatibility score of 9 out of 10.
Despite the slight differences in their rising sign nature (Scorpio and Aquarius), I believe this romantic connection is a rare match. Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom have what it takes to last long-term.
