A Capricorn Moon Needs to Work Hard

Capricorns are the workers of the zodiac and the lunar placement means there is an emotional need to work. They are always busy building structures, a function of the call from Saturn to make something meaningful, solid, and that will stand the test of time. Concentration and sacrifice are part of Capricorn’s makeup, and the results of their labors will be substantial.

1. Emotionally Unexpressed

If your moon lands in Capricorn, you have a very difficult time accessing your emotions in order to share them others and for the purpose of transforming them. You can get stuck in how you feel, and you are there alone. No one knows what you are experiencing deep inside because you think that others won’t understand and will judge you harshly for what you are feeling. This creates an experience of isolation.

2. Prone to Melancholy

Those with a Capricorn lunar placement tend to be melancholy or seem slightly depressed. All work and very little play can be daunting, even for them. Sadness is always nearby—there’s just too much to do and too little time, or too few resources to get the desired results. Whatever the reason, this moon placement will find a reason to feel bad about something all the time.

3. Mature

Capricorn moon placements are usually mature beyond their years, independent, and responsible. If they have difficulty as children, they’re inclined to become “adults” at an early age. They are wise, dependable, capable, and resilient.

4. Loyal and Devoted

People with a moon in Capricorn are loyal and devoted friends, family member, workers, and lovers. If you are in their lives, you fit into some bigger picture and they are always in service to whatever that vision may be. They are forgiving (but they don’t forget), and you’ll never know what they really think. Let their actions speak for them and carry on.

5. Secure and Stable

People with a Capricorn moon placement desire security and stability. They like to know how they will butter their bread and work hard to keep things flowing nicely. They are practical and conservative, making it easy for them to live with just the basic essentials. Luxury is not their value system and they’re happy keeping it simple and easy with most things.
