The Moon represents your emotional body. It’s what an astrologer looks to when they want to understand what you need to feel happy, safe, and nurtured. The Moon is also the part of you that determines whether someone or a situation is trustworthy. In a breath, your moon sign will explain what your non-negotiables in life are.
*Note: Your Moon sign is rarely the same as your Sun sign. To find out what your Moon sign is simply run your birth chart online using your birth date, time and location*
Capricorn is symbolized by the goat. Maybe you don’t know, but goats are excellent mountain climbers. They move steadily, slowly, and sure-footedly; and thus, so do you. You are the definition of self-discipline! Your heart wants to know that it’s capable of being successful by proving itself to itself. You do this by climbing to the top and being the best at whatever you do. Your natural talents of organizing and planning mixed with your desire for structure and order help you accomplish this. You gain respect for yourself through external success, likely in the workplace. With a strong motivation like this driving you, you’re sure to continue holding the top spot once you’re there.
You move at a slow pace though, and may struggle with brutal internal dialogue that tells you that you aren’t moving quickly enough in comparison to your peers. Try to write these off. Capricorns are known to be late bloomers.
Accepting help isn’t your thing either. You’re hell bent on independence. You want to use your own devices to soar-- like your mind, skills, and self-discipline. Being seen as less than or weak is a kill to your ego.
You’re the ultimate manifestor. Now, this sounds “woo woo” but it’s actually spot on. Manifestors are people who make things happen. They’re the people who not only have a vision but have the tools and power to make it a reality. This is you. You take responsibility and get a job done. You’d make an extraordinary manager because of these skills. You know how to make the most of what you have, and don't overspend the companies money.
Living With A Capricorn Moon
You’re someone who prefers traditional and timeless. Maybe an old home that’s well cared for. In terms of decor, you may have a thing for collectibles and restoring old pieces.
Overall, you like things to be in order. However, where your moon is placed will say how you go about it. You could be the type to whip out the work yourself or hire someone to do the work for you.
Love With A Capricorn Moon
A lot of people say the moon is in detriment here, but I beg to differ. You’re an old fashioned lover. You prize the responsibility and dignity of a commitment. Someone who is fickle or unpredictable doesn’t interest you. Inconsistency turns you off. Someone who’s too immature or showy will make you feel like you’re dating a child. You want an adult because you’re an adult. You want someone who’s independent and can care for themselves. You often carry a lot of responsibility and if even you don’t admit it aloud, you want someone you can rely on. The challenge here is that you can bare a lot so finding someone who is as capable as you is... well, tough.
Your heart will open to someone who not only can take care of you and looks up to you, but also someone who loves you.
The Moon being in detriment here simply means that it’s harder for you to get in touch with your feelings. True intimacy can be hard for you. You’re the type who likes to be admired and resists saying or doing things that take you off the pedestal. You feel obligated to maintain your image. You’d much rather suppress your feelings and distract yourself with tasks and goals.
In result, you partner feels the emotional disconnect and distance. Learn to show yourself and rely on others from time to time.
Restraint is something you’re very comfortable with. This is because your heart is learning to not give up at the first sign of things going south. This applies to your emotions, too. You don’t want your feelings getting out of control. So, you simply deny them.
You are independent, autonomous, and self-sufficient. Interdependence naturally isn’t in the cards for you. But it doesn’t mean that you don’t occasionally crave intimacy. In these moments it’s key that you don’t compromise your skills to have a partner. If you do, you’ll end up resenting yourself and your partner. Embrace your strengths. Find authentic ways for him/her to bring value into your life. That said, you can learn a lot from a partner who teaches you how to trust others and accept support.
When A Capricorn Moon Loses It
It’s hard for others to see when you’re struggling because you’re programmed to rise above any challenge. The more demanding an issue is, the stronger you appear. You’re great at suppressing emotions-- it’s almost unnatural. Be careful about turning into a robot that just operates through life rather being human who feels it.
Your sense of responsibility and duty can strip you of the few emotional experiences you encounter. You, maybe unconsciously, find yourself attracted to people who slack off so you can pick up their duties. Recognize when it’s not your rock to carry. If your absolutely hell bent on helping with the situation elect someone who is also capable to step in. Not everything is your responsibility.
Your Moon Sign and Your Mama
Your mother was business woman. One with impressive business and managerial skills. If your mom wasn’t responsible and dutiful, she should’ve been because she had everything she needed to succeed. If she had children too soon or was ridden with other responsibilities, it’s likely that she demanded you to grow up quickly and care for yourself. This moon sign tells a story of a child who had a lot of responsibility thrust upon them at a young age. You may feel like you’re aging backwards, like you were an adult as a child and are regaining your childlike nature as you mature.
This is also a placement that we see with moms who experience postpartum depression or another form of anxiety and emotional uproar. You actually absorbed her experience and now, unknowingly, turn your disappointment in others into self-shame. Failures and disappointments hit you much harder than they do the average Joe. Surprisingly, you can also feel down after you’ve just accomplished something big like: a project, business deal, or personal project. This is because the ideals you had for yourself may have been so high that you did not reach them. You also attribute your success to a certain amount of self-acceptance, which you don’t actually let yourself feel.
Nonetheless, your mom was critical of you and expected things in perfect order. She wasn’t one to demonstrate patience and may have led the house with a iron first-- no velvet glove. As one astrologer shared, a mother like this “isn’t raising a child but an adult.”
Growing up you absorbed her expectations of you until it became your own internal dialogue. You can be extraordinarily hard on yourself and work tirelessly to prove yourself to yourself in result. You have an impressive amount of self-discipline and aren’t one to sugar coat things or coddle others in effort to comfort them. For you, it’s nose the grind.
