The Mood of Capricorn

Digging In

When the Moon is in Capricorn, we're more serious minded. It's harder to just hang out. We want to feel productive on something that has substance to it. Capricorn is an earth sign that means business. With the Moon here, emotional force can be applied to whatever is in process.

These days are great for pushing past difficult obstacles. You've got extra discipline and patience. And you're able to forgo the satisfaction of short term gains for longer term achievements.

Conserving Energy

There's more social reserve, and we like to have common goals. It's a conservative mood, that makes us more thrifty, looking for more bang for the buck. This gives us an eye for what's solid, and has enduring value. You're more apt to choose the tried and true now, over something experimental. When in doubt about it, you'll pass it by.

This lunar mood puts the focus on real world ambitions. You might spend our time mapping out a business plan. It's timely for considering what's a good investment of your time, energy and resources. What will bring a solid return? Everything is viewed through a practical eye, including relationships. You can see how to make structural changes that make life more efficient.

Power activities under the Capricorn Moon: meeting with clients or collaborators; putting together a proposal; considering investments; acting or speaking with authority; working with a mentor or "mentee"; upholding a longstanding tradition; taking control of a situation.

Follow the Moon

The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to "go with the flow" of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.
