Once you know your Moon sign then read how it affects your Capricorn Sun and unlock your emotional potential once and for all. That’s the power your Moon sign gives you!
Moon in Aries
Diligence and determination colour this combination. You are certainly not passive and have little time for those who are inert or stand by and let the world happen around them. You believe you cannot gain success without hard work or making the most of opportunities that come your way though you tend to be a little suspicious if it is all a little too easy. Try not to let the impetuous Aries moon take over and let you take on more that you should. It could lead to stress-related issues or a breakdown or burn out if not monitored. You are ambitious and after the prestige and recognition of your achievements and out to impress. However, you are not going to flatter anyone to win friends or favours. Your direct but honest approach means that people know where they stand with you and that duplicity is just not in your nature. You do need to try to relax a bit and develop some interests unrelated to work so you can get that much-needed perspective and recharge. Remember to carve out quality time with loved ones and by maintaining a healthy work/life balance those achievements will seem all the more sweeter!
Moon in Taurus
You have a very stable character and people respond well to your quiet and unassuming presence. However, you do have issues with stubbornness as you have a tendency to be conservative and can be resistant to change – including changing your mind! However, nobody would ever doubt you are steadfast and loyal and you have no problem with commitment – including going after your goals. Your soul task is to work at accepting new thoughts and ideas – call it mind yoga if you like! If you hang on dogmatically to your beliefs you can end up coming across as repressed, depressed and even antagonistic. Find someone you can open up to with complete honesty to deal with deep emotions as you do not like to face your fears or vulnerabilities publicly if at all. Because of your calm and reassuring demeanour, people are happy to accept any constructive criticism as you offer sound and thoughtful judgement and this is one of your greatest strengths. Watch out over becoming too complacent if things are going well however! You are sensual and love the ‘good things’ of life – things with timeless quality to them rather than the latest ‘trends’. You’ll blossom if you form connections with people who challenge you mentally and help you question and expand your beliefs.
Moon in Gemini
You’re someone who loves knowledge, can really apply themselves to study, has a wide range of interests and is intrigued by new ideas and concepts. This placement makes you naturally curious and a fast learner. The challenge for you would be focusing in a particular direction rather than be distracted by your great variety of interests. Use your planning and organisational skills to keep you steady and allow yourself down time for your hobbies. There is a tendency to worry which leads to anxiety or being overwhelmed by emotions you do not really understand. If this happens you may slide into becoming volatile and verbose as a coping mechanism. The key here is to understand your emotions without over-intellectualising them! You are ambitious thanks to your Capricorn Sun but your Gemini Moon gives you the imagination, versatility and aptitude to reach your goals. It’s a fabulous combination.
Moon in Cancer
You are a sensitive soul who is self-sufficient and happy to work alone and enjoy your own company. There is a danger of being too reclusive, tucking yourself away in your shell-like existence. Sometimes you need to do this to regain your inner balance and harmony but you also need connections too. Capricorns have a great sense of humour so this could be the key to unlocking any self-imposed barriers. You are very secretive and tend to keep your feelings to yourself – only opening up when it is safe to do so. Look to make friendships or for love with people who are either older or who have more life experience than you. They will nurture you and allow you to express how you feel without being judgemental. Support and sympathy are necessary to let you flourish in most settings and you thrive when surrounded by family or home comforts. Try not to worry too much as depression can be the result. You possess great intuition and insight so trust these as you have the ability to peer through the dross or external appearances and see what others have missed.
Moon in Leo
You are destined to be the boss! You have the ambition that says you will eventually get there. Although you can be serious when the occasion warrants it – especially when it comes to professional matters, this softened by your friendliness, vitality and charisma, more so than other Capricorns. Do take care to curb your vanity and pride as you can be condescending and, at your worst, tyrannical and despotic especially to those you see as a threat or not respecting your authority (in your opinion). As Capricorn does not like feeling vulnerable, there is a danger of your over-reacting to slights or insults – perceived or otherwise. You can unleash disproportionate fury to what you see as an attack or affront to your reputation and self-esteem. This will undermine all the effort you put into your professional image so do learn to keep your cool. If you do confront criticism take a moment to consider what has been said and if there is an element of truth attached. You are naturally magnanimous and if you see there is something in what others are saying, then let them know and you’ll win even more supporters. We all make mistakes now and again – and we learn more from them than we do from our successes. Let others see you are not perfect and in that – create the perfect network of loved ones and colleagues.
Moon in Virgo
You come across as quite reserved and give the impression of being self-assured though it can be a different story underneath! You can be a little too hard on yourself at times as you are very responsible and want to ensure you make the right decision by being a little pedantic over details which you will analyse in a logical and systematic manner. You usually make the right decision because of this but even if you make the wrong one you can rely on your judgement and astute mind to find solutions. Because you can come across as someone who has their act together, others would be surprised to know how much you are in fact governed by your feelings. You need to find trustworthy people to open up to as otherwise your emotions will start to feel overwhelming. Stability is important to you and you look to create this in your own life and in your relationships due to your deep sensitivity. You do have a fear of failure and you need to open up to those close to you about this and also avoid letting it rule your life. Accept this is part of your high standards but may be nothing more than a fear created by your own extremely sensitive nature.
Moon in Libra
Two distinct personalities reside in the person who has Sun in Capricorn, Moon in Libra. One who can come across as detached, cool and determined and the other who is the other is creative, warm, kind and understanding. Integrating these two halves and finding the balance between them will be your emotional soul journey. You are more outgoing and optimistic than most Capricorns and because of this you are able to mix business with pleasure with relative ease, but you may need to reconcile internal conflict between your aspirations and need to be valued. This can hinder your self confidence so your challenge is to overcome your tendency to be self-defeatist and take responsibility for your own happiness rather than give that power to others. You need to find your own inner peace and balance to succeed without compromising your values in the process. Trust your sound and impartial judgement as you can see both sides of a situation and voice any concerns or problems you see. You are not infringing on anyone by speaking up so do not be scared. Use that persuasive charm from deep within to express yourself and you’ll integrate the two sides of your personality perfectly!
Moon in Scorpio
You have great strength of character combined with a strong drive to succeed. Not only that, you know who you are, what you want and how you are going to get it! You have huge emotional depth and your challenge may be to control your emotions as opposed to be carried away by them. Just don’t fall into the trap of becoming sanctimonious when it comes to others opinions and desire or pretend not to understand when you clearly do. Tap into your ability to express yourself quietly. You don’t suffer fools gladly but you are loyal, honourable, kind and honest and expect the same in return. However, don’t be rigid when it comes to your ideas and beliefs although most people find you reasonable due to your innate grasp of human nature. You are also a great listener and can offer good advice when your emotions are not involved or have a vested interest in the outcome and you would make a superb therapist or counsellor.
Moon in Sagittarius
This placement makes you the most optimistic of Capricorns and it is a great combination for not only getting the job done but with a smile as well. Moon in Sagittarius is outgoing, funny and good company which can lighten Capricorn’s pessimistic or morose outlook. There is the danger of slipping into periods of depression and if that happens please resist the urge to withdraw but make an effort to connect and be out in the world as this will be your fastest way out of the blues. Although you like to socialise you won’t let yourself be distracted from your goals. Personal freedom is important to you and unlike most Capricorns you may rebel against constraints and structure. Take time out to enjoy a pastime or activity that physically engages you so you can be re-energised and ready to focus on your plans. Travel is also important so try to incorporate this in with your work or down time. Though deeply ambitious you are honest and spurn ruthless or unethical behaviour. Your self-respect will not tolerate it. Serious purpose and enthusiasm with a strong moral code ensures both popularity and success.
Moon in Capricorn
This double dose of Capricorn can make you very serious indeed. The restrictive nature of Saturn makes you a shy and withdrawn but very dedicated person and a hard worker. It is only fair to say you like to have rules and regulations to follow. Risk taking is not your forte either. Order, truth and facts are what your foundations are built on. There is a great deal of resolve and inner strength there but you need to find emotional satisfaction as well. Often you will reach your goals but still remain dissatisfied if you ignore your emotional needs. Learn to laugh at your own foibles as you have a deep reserve of compassion for both yourself and others if you can tap into it. You have an amazing ability to take on challenges with an enviable level of composure and reasoning. Remember to laugh. You have a great sense of humour. Share it and you’ll find reaching those goals far more satisfying!
Moon in Aquarius
You are more original and quirky than most Capricorns thanks to the Aquarius moon. This placement also earns you the respect of others due to your own belief in yourself, your ideas and your talents. You can do things on a grand scale due to your enviable organisational ability which allows you to seamlessly meld work with pleasure as you certainly dabble in a broad range of interests and activities. There is a deep regard for the past but you are naturally compelled to explore new and innovative ways to do things though you are not rash about change. You approach new concepts with responsibility and realism. Lonely or reclusive you are not! In fact you enjoy socialising and keep company with a wide range variety of people though you need your independence and freedom. Emotional support and encouragement are important but you can be a little hard on others as well as yourself. Some patience is needed when dealing with those who cannot interpret your broad vision especially when your keen intuition lets you know who they are.
Moon in Pisces
This combination allows you not only to dream but to turn dreams into reality with the ability to manifest any ideas with a plan, sound foundations and structure. Though ambitious you have a perceptive mind, a gift which you do not abuse by resorting to unethical or underhanded dishonourable conduct to reach your goals. People consider you not only trustworthy but kind and compassionate which is not often attributed to Capricorn. Pisces gives you a humanitarian focus to your nature as well as profound intuition. You are deeply compassionate but this can make you susceptible to manipulation by some unscrupulous souls so do take care to be discriminating with relationships. Boundaries are essential and by imposing them you are not being offensive or hurtful, you are just looking after yourself and you well-being. Practicality is there in spades and this grounds your vivid imagination. If you can dream it – you can do it!
Understanding the energy of our Moon sign just leads to us leading happier lives – and better connections with all the people around us. So, utilise yours and open up emotional strengths you never knew you had – all courtesy of the Moon!
