You are patient, and that gives you an edge, as you build up what's emotionally secure. You are an earthy moon, often intimate with what is right there in your vicinity. Your emotional life is also sensual, and feelings are tied to the very real engagement in your physical relationships. Your Moon Sign Your astrological moon sign indicates your “inner you.” If you are a Capricorn moon, that means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Capricorn zodiac sign. Your moon sign and your sun sign combined make up a more in-depth portrait of your personality. Yearning for Stability If you are a Capricorn moon, you want a steady home base and may be tradition-minded. Much like a Capricorn sun sign, you are determined and disciplined. You want self-mastery, and carry a sense of the loner with them, for that reason. Since Capricorn relates to achievement and status, it tells the story of your life's work, too. Earthly Grounded Capricorn moon does best staying close to nature, which is an epic challenge in today's world. If you're overwhelmed, go out into the forest, or lie in the park fully prostrate on the ground. Try earthing, which is basically going barefoot. You find balance when you listen to your body and follow your instincts about what is authentic. Being an earth sign moon, you are sensual and will unwind when all senses are engaged. Control Freak Moon Capricorns are happy when pursuing their profession of choice, and that is where some of this force can find a channel. You may come off as mature and restrained, or even all-business, because you want to stay in control. You admire self-mastery because you feel out of control if you have to depend too heavily on others. This is hard for you, and you will work hard to overcome patterns of co-dependency. Your Emotions Stability is a big deal for earth sign moons, making Capricorn moons more no-nonsense when it comes to feelings. It's not that you are unfeeling, but you do not want to feed into another's beliefs about victimhood or dependency. "The Moon in Capricorn is like a gifted actress who, after being savaged by the critics because she has a tendency to overact, becomes afraid to show any emotional range at all."—Astrologer Kevin Burk, Understanding the Birth Chart Materialism and Ambition Some might not understand your fixation on material matters, but this is how you create balance. Capricorn moon people are big achievers because of your natural instinct for working toward attainable goals. As a cardinal sign, you show a lot of initiative. You are in it to win it, and willing to give up short-term gratifications for the end goal. In fact, you might have a hard time kicking back and taking it easy. If you are a Capricorn moon, you might not warm up to others until they have proven worthy of your time. You might likely assess others through the lens of how they can further your worldly ambitions. It may not sound romantic, but you may integrate this will to succeed in your relationships. You are happiest with a dream in the process since you are not likely to enjoy idle time. You might enjoy spending your free time coming up with investment strategies to assure a well-funded future. Your Dark Side Your inner world might seem musty and dark at times, which you try to cover up with dry humor. A Capricorn moon that slips into melancholy can seem immovable and will likely only re-emerge when you have found a goal worth building brick by brick. Your Relationships The social life of a Capricorn moon can lead toward private gatherings with family and friends. Once a relationship tie of any kind is formed, you will prove to be loyal and generous with your resources. For you, building a romantic relationship is serious business that should not be rushed into. What you lack in initial passion, you make up for in trustworthy endurance for the long haul.
