Capricorn Moon Sign People

There is one person in your circle who keeps everything organized. She or he buys the tickets for all the important events. They make the phone calls to see how many are coming out for dinner and make the reservation. Your Capricorn Moon sign friend starts going online in January to get ideas for which vacation condo you will all share on the summer vacation you take together. You can always count on them because Capricorn Moon sign people are so reliable.

Capricorn Moon sign people are quiet and somewhat reserved. This is a person that likes to stay in the background, yet somehow manages to end up in the public eye anyway. They are normally prominent and well respected members of the community, because they are hard workers and get behind causes they believe in. But they do it quietly and calmly. These aren’t the ones who have protest marches or cross picket lines. Capricorn Moon sign people want to sit down and discuss the issues, then agree on several of the best ways to resolve the problems. They want everyone to come to a consensus; other people’s opinions do matter to them. These negotiations take place in a meeting room without a lot of fanfare.

Capricorn is a cardinal sign of leadership, so these are the people who are the power behind the scenes. Capricorn Moon sign people have the ability to get people who normally keep to themselves involved in worthwhile projects. They are very responsible, and so can talk others into doing a fair share of the work for a meaningful cause. Organization is their middle name, and they work hard to make their homes and work areas clutter free.

Conservative, but Secretly Very Romantic

Capricorn Moon souls are really much more emotional than they appear. A person who really craves security and approval lurks behind that tough image they project. These are traditional and conservative people. They have the same loyal group of friends that have been around for years. Even though they are serious, they possess a dry sense of humor which comes off as hilarious, since it is so unexpected coming from this seemingly somber person.

Capricorn Moon sign people want to get married rather than live together. If they care about you that much, they want to make the relationship permanent, so they can plan for the future. Capricorns are always prepared for the future, as forethought is a big part of who they are. They want to have engagement parties, weddings, baby showers. Capricorn Moons secretly love all that traditional stuff. They are very emotional, but Capricorn is an Earth sign, so they are affectionate, but they show it more in private. Even when they are beginning to fall in love, the presents they give will be practical.

As time progresses, you’ll have to leave ads and pictures of gifts you would like around the house. They are quick on the uptake. Capricorn Moon sign people in love will give their fiancé four new tires for their car for Valentine’s Day----well, it will be after the engagement ring. I know it’s not the most romantic thing. But they want you to be safe. Nothing says “love” like new tires! Who else loves you enough to want you to be safe, besides your parents? Capricorn Moons and Suns give off a fatherly kind of vibe, since Saturn, old Father Time, is the ruler of the sign. Capricorns worry about time, and love watches and funky clocks, if you need gift ideas. They are also very efficient when they set about a task, and want to get it done in such a way that no time is wasted.

Capricorns are romantic, but mostly in private.

Capricorns Take Care of Business and Have an Unexpected Humorous Side

All Capricorn Moon sign people have a good head for business. They are accountants, bankers, Chief Executive Officers, business owners, real estate agents, and financial advisers. Their leadership and organizational abilities just lend themselves to these careers. The women do just as well as the men. Most Capricorn Moons have an inner circle of people whom they trust with anything. They accept them as family, much as their opposite sign Cancer does.

They are cautious people who want to know the facts before they jump into anything. But since they are a cardinal, leadership sign, they are not averse to taking a chance if it's a calculated risk. Capricorn Moons are patient and responsible. They do not judge other people, realizing that everyone has faults. They really do have a sensitive side, and you are a lucky person if you are the recipient of this warm attention.

Capricorn Moon sign people are very goal oriented, but will work extremely hard and plan well to make these goals turn into reality. The ambitious side of Capricorn is well symbolized by the goat standing on top of the highest mountain of achievement. They make great parents, always having time for the children while they are young. It is important to Capricorn parents to teach their children to be self-reliant. They will share some stories about their own teen and young adult years when their kids are grown, but only if something can be learned from it.

Capricorn Moon sign people like nice material things, but do not go overboard with these desires. The practical part of their nature always wins out. They do want to live in comfort though, so the house will always have nice and practical furniture. It will be the type of place where you feel like you can relax and be yourself. Capricorn Moons like to host parties and love to pamper their friends.They serve only the best food and liquor. And every now and then the whimsical side of their humor comes out. Be sure to make the most of it!

Must Work Harder to Achieve What Comes Easily to Others

Capricorn people often have hard lives. It really seems that they work harder and face more obstacles than most people in order to achieve something that another person can with much less effort. They will still achieve their goals, but always must push harder than anyone else. Perhaps this is because Capricorn is the sign opposing Cancer, the emotional Moon sign who charms people to get what they want. Capricorns are much more caring than they appear, but have a tougher exterior, due to all the hardships they have faced.

I have a Capricorn Moon myself, and was born with scoliosis, a spinal curvature that has caused me problems all my life. I wore casts and braces to school, and was teased. Even when in good health, it seemed good to me if I could complete a work week and only call out sick one day monthly. Many of my superiors did not quite see it that way. So I felt that although I always tried so hard, I was being punished while doing my best to live a normal life which was complicated. My life is good, just things do not come to me easily. I appreciate what I do have, and make the most of the days when I feel exceptionally well. It took age and maturity for me to be able to prioritize my life, but I did.

Once again since opposing Cancer, people with Capricorn Moons have difficulties in getting along with their mothers. It does not mean they love them any less. The Capricorn Moon vibe is a responsible one, and may result in a situation where a mother gets too needy for her teen or young adult children, when they already have much on their plates. This is a scenario where boundaries will have to be set up. The family is important, but you cannot be on the phone listening to Mom's problems when helping your kindergarten child learn to print the alphabet. Try to help her find new activities or clubs to join, so she can find some friends her own age. That way she will be happier and busier, and you will have less of a dilemma on your hands.

Questions & Answers

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Scorpio Rising, and to be honest, I feel like I don’t know who I am. What can I do?

Answer: OK, breathe. I have a Capricorn Moon and Scorpio Rising, with Mercury and Venus in Gemini. You can do this :). The Gemini Sun means you are intelligent and interested in a wide variety of topics. You like people, but since Gemini is the sign of the Twins, you may seem like two people in one. Or have two groups of friends who you engage with for totally different reasons. You learn fast and are basically friendly. But you do change a lot. We all do.

Capricorn Moon is a little harder. The Moon rules your emotions. Capricorn is a serious sign, and you won't waste time on emotional issues which don't seem important to you. Also, you won't waste time on people who you think aren't worth your time. Capricorn rules time. But you do want security, and are ambitious. Or at least ambitious enough to work towards getting what it is that helps you feel secure. You are very emotional, although you may read that Capricorn Moon people are cold. That's untrue. They don't like to show emotions in public, they are private people who are very emotional, and sensual, too.

The Rising sign is the facade we all wear with people we don't know well. Sometimes we wear it more. So, you appear to be uninterested or reserved, and people don't realize you are just trying to know them a bit better to decide if you like them or not. Some find Scorpio rising people intimidating. I find other women are intimidated by me. I'm a 5'2" blonde and I cant figure out why, although I am intelligent and Scorpio vibes are intense. You don't wear your emotions on your sleeve, which is double since you have the Capricorn Moon, too. But you are a bubbling cauldron of emotion when Scorpio is around! You are a loyal friend and have both a strong presence and are a strong person.

So the Gemini Sun actually lightens up your personality a little bit. It's safer and better to know more about people and situations before you get too involved. I hope that helps you. I have articles on about Capricorn Moon Emotions and Gemini Sun sign People. I think I have one on about Rising signs. You'll be fine! Take care, Jean

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Cancer Rising & I am struggling emotionally as I get older. Any thoughts of how to balance out? You mentioned Cancer and Capricorn are opposed, can that be the struggle?

Answer: The Sun, Moon and Rising sign work together as a trinity. Your Gemini Sun is the easier part of it. You are outgoing, intelligent and probably know a little about a lot of subjects (and are a master at some)! You seem changeable, as it's the sign of the Twins, but the Cancer Rising adds to that.

The Rising sign is how others see us; the facade we put on before we let others in. A Cancer Rising person seems kind and agreeable, but it's also a leadership sign (as is Capricorn). Cancers love security, but get bored easily, too. So others see you as approachable, but also as someone who is open to new ideas and change. They probably confide in you often.

The Capricorn Moon is a little harder; the Moon rules our emotions. Capricorn Moon people hold back until they are sure they want to get to know someone better. They are discriminating, not in a judgmental way, but in a "is this person worth my time" kind of way. Capricorns are romantic, in private please, and so are Cancers. So both are kind of traditional.

Capricorn is another leadership sign. So you come off as gentle and friendly, which you are. But you are very ambitious and Gemini makes you more fun than people think you are at first.The opposition of Cancer Rising/Capricorn Moon is only shown in the way you appear (capable, a good listener, kindhearted) and the way your emotions are (more hidden, afraid of rejection, more serious about life than you appear). It shouldn't cause you any trouble. All in all it looks good. Take care. Jean

Question: I'm a Scorpio sun, Capricorn moon and Sagittarius rising. I do notice a lot of Scorpio and Capricorn traits in me but not sure about my Sagittarius side. Could you give me some insight on this trinity?

Answer: I wrote articles which explain your trinity which is more informative than what I can write here, so I will give you the links so you can put the info together and refer to them. Also, every planet is in a sign, so you also have six other planetary positions I don't know about from this note. But understanding your trinity is an excellent place to start! Here goes: That explains your Sun sign. Next let's tackle that Capricorn Moon: I also have an article regarding ascendants which explains your Sag one: Best of luck and I think you will find this helpful.

Question: I am a Leo Sun, Leo moon, and Leo rising. How do I control my life without letting my emotions affect my perspective and judgment toward others?

Answer: Since Leo is not a really emotional sign, like a water sign would be, you don't have to worry about emotions affecting your perspective. You think you are always right and are bossy though. Leo is a fixed sign, and you need to allow others the right to their opinions too, and not be too rigid about changing yours when you grow as a person, and your own ideas change.

You are generous and likable, and do care about others. But you expect to be treated like you are on a pedestal and that you deserve more attention than you really do. Learn to give a little more. The Leo rising means you are attractive and people gravitate towards you.

You are romantic, but beware you have to give and not just take in a relationship. If you have other planets in water or earth signs, that will make your strong personality easier to take. Sometimes you have to agree to disagree. Leos are fun and like to go out often. I think you are in control of your life, unless you have a group of planets in Pisces or Cancer. In fact, normally we have at least a planet or two in a sign next to our Sun sign, so your Mercury (how you think) or Venus (love and social life) can be in either Cancer or Virgo. Cancers are leaders and although emotional, are normally in charge. Virgos are restless and intelligent, and tend to be critical. But they also are lively, as are Cancers, so either way, I think you do get out a lot and can keep perspective. You also are likely to have trusted friends to turn to for advice.

Question: I am an Aries sun, Capricorn Moon, and Leo Rising. I clearly get the point of how Capricorns don’t like to waste time on people, circumstances or even emotions that don’t help. However, I’m not really that reserved and like to be myself every time I can (other than serious meetings, but still, I inject a spark of fun and joy). What do you think of my zodiac cocktail?

Answer: Aries people are the pioneers, the life of the party, generally restless and always moving on to new things and meeting new people. You probably love to start new projects, though I think you finish them, since Leo is a fixed sign. Your Capricorn Moon would be shocked if you didn't meet a goal! Also, you are romantic, with Aries, and like the thrill of the chase, and are likely interested enough to get to know the person more, with that Leo Rising. You may even decide they are worth the time with the Capricorn Moon!

Leo rising means people see you as very sociable, composed, able to be comfortable in social situations. You are a great host and often entertain. Everyone loves to be at your house or needs your help planning a party. You aren't bad at decorating either.

The Capricorn Moon doesn't need to be viewed as negative. It can be grounding in an emotional way. Aries and Capricorn are leadership signs, so you are ambitious. You could be a bit of a social climber. Your Moon grounds you, and I think that's good since you have two fire signs in your Trinity. You have the potential to achieve your goals.

Social climber sounds bad, but being practical, you sort of screen people to see if they can be useful to you. You aren't going to date a starving artist--they won't provide you with all the nice things a Leo Rising person needs to feed the facade. But two warm fire signs in the Trinity mean you won't coldly use another person. You just want useful people in your life and don't waste it on what you would consider a loser. Earth signs can be very sensual as well, and with the Moon here, you act reserved, but once a lover gets to know you better, you are more adventurous than they would have dared believe! You love nature and the outdoors too, sex on the beach or in a secluded cove in the woods with a bottle of wine is compatible with a Capricorn Moon person. You will be careful about poison ivy and such.

I think it's a nice cocktail. Enjoy it. It's a good combo of being outgoing, yet prioritizing your time too. Best Wishes, Jean

Question: I'm Aries sun, Capricorn asc., and Sag moon. I act more like a Cap and it is so very, very, very frustrating. The Aries in me is always ready but I see the Capricorn all the time and if hinders my life. I don't know how to handle my complex astrological combination or what to do?

Answer: OK. Well the Capricorn is the ascendant, so it's not really as strong as the Sun or Moon, or they are all equal. I am wondering if maybe you have more planets in Capricorn? Being Aries and having a Sag Moon, both are fire signs, so you should be outgoing and always ready for adventure. Aries loves to try new things and is a leader. So having that and Capricorn, is two cardinal signs of leadership. Aries has good ideas, but Capricorn carries them out. The Sag Moon rules your emotions. You have many interests and may be interested in a different culture or someone who lives in a foreign country.

Since you are aware of the issue, don't let the Capricorn hinder you. We have Free Will in Astrology.

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn moon, Libra rising girl. I'm thirty-years-old, but I am not getting success in my career field and personal life. I want to know about my sign combination. When will I be successful?

Answer: The Libra Rising means you are liked by others and have a nice personality. The Capricorn moon is about emotions, and you keep yours private, or even locked inside. It's OK to keep some feelings to yourself, but you don't want to make people think you don't care. Both Libra and Capricorn are signs of leadership, so you do have what it takes to be successful, and you certainly do want success. The Gemini Sun means you are smart on a lot of topics. This can be a matter of focus. Decide on one thing you do best, and learn as much as you can about it, or look for success in what field you care about the most.

Question: I am Aquarius/Pisces, Scorpio rising, Capricorn moon, Capricorn venus. Am I a mess?

Answer: You are no more of a mess than the rest of us! You have to be either Aquarius or Pisces, that "on the cusp" business is a misnomer that's been allowed to exist which is untrue. There are cusps in astrology, but they divide the 12 houses, and you can only have one Sun Sign. It doesn't always change on the 21st of each month either, so you have to use the year as well, and look it up online. Try a site like Cafe Astrology; I use tables from there.

If you are intelligent and love new things, you may be Aquarius. If you are sensitive and dreamy, you may be Pisces. Either way, since every planet is in a zodiac sign, you likely have a planet in both Aquarius and Pisces, like Mercury or Venus, in addition to the Sun sign we don't know.

Scorpio rising people have the traits seeming reserved, strong-willed, powerful and magnetic. You usually do what you set out to do. You have strong sex appeal, and others are drawn to you. Although you don't come on strong, you need to express yourself and others may be intimidated by you. The Capricorn moon represents your emotions, and you hold them in. You feel strong feelings and are emotional; you just don't wear your heart on your sleeve. You don't like to be out with somebody who likes to make scenes, and I bet you don't like surprises. (I have a Scorpio rising and Capricorn moon too)! You want to know what's happening, and with that Scorpio rising, can read most people like a book. You don't waste time on people unless you decide you like them or they can teach or be useful to you in some way. Or unless you love them, of course.

The Capricorn Venus is another way you hold in your feelings. Venus rules our love lives and social lives. I worry you let relationships slide because you don't tell the other person you care, or show it in little ways. Don't forget, you can read others well, but they can't read you hardly at all with this Moon, Ascendant and Venus. So you need to go out of your way a little to show others you care. It's a hard Venus position. The feeling is there; it's just hard to express. You also may be a bit of a social climber or trying to attract a certain kind of person who meets your set of standards, instead of just letting things happen naturally, and could be getting in your way.

If you have trouble with the Sun sign, write back with your birthday, just give me the year you were born too. I have articles about every Sun Sign on a site called, and actually, there is a link on each of them, usually in the first paragraph, which leads to a table where you can look up the Sun sign.

Question: How does the Sun, Moon, and Rising signs affect one's personality? Which of these in the Trinity have the most impact on one's personality?

Answer: This is a great question and one I often forget to explain further when I tell people what their Trinity is made up of. It's called a Trinity because all three parts are equally important, one part is no more valid than the other. Most readers think the Sun sign is the be all, end all of astrology, but it's only one-third of the Trinity, and we still have all the other planets in zodiac signs of their own, in houses of their own, and all those planets make aspects to each other. So there are many factors that matter A LOT in an astrology reading besides the Sun. The Trinity is just a quick, easy, sort of overview.

The Sun expresses your basic energy potential, and your creative drive to grow and develop as an individual. It also shows the stage of spiritual growth represented by the native's present incarnation or lifetime. The Sun shows what lessons you must master in this lifetime. This is why I preach until I can't even stand it that the houses are so important. We can know what zodiac sign planets are in, but if we don't know what houses they are in, those tell me the areas of life where these planets are important and what area of the person's life will be affected. So Aries is the first sign, and they are the babies of the zodiac. They can be original, but are usually hasty and immature, with a "me, me, me" and "no, no, no" sort of way about them, like a toddler. Other influences in the Natal Birth Chart can help that. A Pisces Sun person is the last zodiac sign, so they are the most spiritual and the oldest souls, they have lived through everything. Advanced astrologers believe in reincarnation, but you don't have to if you like astrology, it just makes more sense then.

The Moon sign represents the inner you, the part you often keep hidden. This is your emotional makeup and only the people who love you most or know you best understand all of this about you. You decide whether to let them in or not. This indicates the type of emotional responses you have to life's situations. It shows what kinds of attitudes and values were instilled in you by your family in your childhood. It tells me how early emotional experiences have affected your outlook on life. It shows how you are likely to be affected by actions of others. The Moon is important in determining how you will conduct your home life and the type of relationship you have with your Mother or women in general. It tells how you respond to the public at large, and attitudes about everyday affairs. It even shows preferences in eating habits!

The Ascendant is the mask or facade a person wears on the outside. We all do it. It's the way other people see us and can be different than the way we are (the Sun) or the way we feel (The Moon). But we still exhibit whatever traits are on the Ascendant, and often people have several planets in that sign, in their first house or twelfth house. We need it to protect ourselves. The Ascendant is the part of the chart, or picture of the sky, at which the eastern horizon intersects the elliptic.

So all three parts of the Trinity are equally important.

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon, with a Cancer Rising. What does my astrological sign makeup say about me?

Answer: The position of the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant is called together The Trinity. As far as how many others have your same trinity? Probably hundreds of thousands of people in the world. I often have people write here and ask me to interpret their Trinity, and if they read the answers I wrote to others, they would see the same trinity already interpreted. An Astrology chart is a lot more than these three little positions. If anyone has broken this down by country, I have never seen it.

A Gemini Sun means you are intelligent and restless. You know about many subjects, and because you have Cancer and Capricorn in you, probably take the time to delve into them more, as Geminis are often misinterpreted as knowing a little about a lot of topics. You are fun as a companion and probably liked by others. The Capricorn Moon represents your emotional makeup. You are a little insecure and don't let people in until you are sure you can trust them. You are reserved, although you are passionate and care deeply, especially about loved ones. Cancer and Capricorn are cardinal signs of leadership, so you make goals and stick with it until you achieve them. Try to express your emotions more, don't lock them inside.

The Cancer Rising is the way others see you. Cancers seem congenial and friendly and make trusted friends. Family is very important to you being a Capricorn/Cancer, and you want to marry and have a family of your own. You seem fun, being a Gemini, but are more conservative and reserved than people think.

Question: I am a Taurus Sun, Aquarius Moon and Libra Ascendant. My mind is always racing. Is it because of my uncomfortable sun and moon combination?

Answer: No, The Sun and Moon are Squared, so you are a tad stubborn, but that isn't it. It's Mercury which rules the mind, and since your Sun is in Taurus, it could be there, or in Aries or Gemini. It rarely goes more than one sign before or after the Sun. I'm going to guess it's in Gemini, because a Gemini Mercury will keep you up nights because you can't shut off your mind, or because you think about too many things at once.

Otherwise, if I have to choose from the three positions you gave me, I would blame it partly on the Aquarius Moon. Those air signs always keep you going. The Moon rules your emotions, and in Aquarius, you have very changeable ones. You could be thinking about past feelings too much instead of moving on.

Question: I am a Taurus sun with Capricorn moon and Leo rising. How do I push through the hard times without getting so emotional and giving up?

Answer: First, I want to explain to you and my other readers that when you write to me with your Astrology Trinity (Sun, Moon, Ascendant), or with a list of what zodiac signs your planets are in, this is only a small part of what a Natal Birth Chart or any kind of horoscope would be. These questions are time-consuming to answer, although people seem to want the help, so I reply to them. But there is so much information I don't know that it's difficult for me to give you a complete answer. Also, astrology interpretations are not usually free because of my time, all the expensive books, workshops, and classes I had to take over the years to have the knowledge I do. So I am happy to try to answer, but what you are getting is just an educated guess based on my experience.

I don't see any reason here why you should suffer from being over emotional at all. None of the Trinity is in water signs, the most emotional ones. Taurus Sun people are very grounded and practical. You are ruled by gentle Venus, so you avoid arguments, although you are willing to express yourself. You are a strong person, and Taureans have much persistence, which should aid in problem-solving and find logical conclusions to your issues.

Capricorn Moon is the ruler of your emotions. Again, this a well-grounded Earth sign. You do tend to keep your emotions to yourself, but will express them when you must. You are a good judge of people and business oriented, probably your job and financial security is very important to you. You are fond of your family and close friends, who rely on your good advice and calm presence.

Leo Rising is the way others see you, especially those who don't know you well. This fire sign makes you seem outgoing, friendly, and optimistic. You are fun to be with and like to go out, being a bit of a party person. You like fashion and nice things (so does the Taurus in you). I think you have many friends who would be happy to listen to your problems.

So there's a lot of information missing because this is not a picture of an overwrought and overly emotional person. It's a picture of a very grounded person who doesn't give up. Capricorn is one of the most ambitious signs, and Leos work hard to shine.

If I had a whole horoscope, there would likely be other planets in water signs, (please don't go on a site and send me a list, I don't interpret those, it's hours of work) or I could see how far the planets were from each other called aspects. There are also 12 houses in astrology, and I can't see what planets are in them or what signs they are ruled by. I suspect you have several in a water sign in one of the houses.

But draw upon your Capricorn Moon to give you the energies to push through the hard times. And your Leo Moon means help is close to you, take it. I hope things get better for you.

Question: I’m a Sagittarius sun, Leo rising and Capricorn moon. I’ve been dealing with a serious illness and see light at the end of the tunnel but feel like I’m struggling to get focused on my creative goals and feel like time might run out on me. How can I push through to accomplish my dreams before it’s too late?

Answer: I'm sorry you are dealing with such a serious illness. The Sagittarius Sun is very optimistic, as it's ruled by Jupiter, so that's a really strong point for you. You are a person who usually looks to the bright side, and this can be very helpful when ill. Also, Leo rising is a Fire Sign, and fire energy is very strong and good for fighting health issues. Leos are also sunny and people like them. So don't be afraid to lean on your friends for support. I am sure they would love to help, don't be too shy to ask! The Capricorn Moon rules your emotions, and since Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, that can get you in a gloomy mood regarding your situation. But Capricorns are also very practical and strong and you have more emotional strength than the average person. So use that to your advantage, you need it when going through a hard time Also, Sag and Capricorn are both good signs for having dreams. Sag gives you the ideas to have dreams, and Leo and Capricorn the will to follow through and get them accomplished. You are a strong and optimistic person, and I wish you the very best.

Question: I am a Cancer Moon, and I think I’ve met some who is the complete opposite of me, but he is a Capricorn Moon. He has been giving me the cold shoulder lately. He says that he doesn’t have the time right to spend quality time together. I don’t know if I can wait any longer! He says that there is no one else in the picture, but I just don’t understand why can’t he make time. Should I drop him or wait it out?

Answer: There probably is an attraction, Cancer and Capricorn are opposite signs. Contrary to what some think, this is good in a romantic situation. Usually, I would say he's BS-ing you, but Capricorns are serious about love. And serious about how they spend their time. When a Capricorn says they don't have time to spend quality time, I believe it. Does he work often? There's nobody in the picture except you? Don't be too quick to drop him, give it more time. In the meantime, it would be fine to see other people; it might make him free up some of that precious time. I'm Cancer, and my first love was Capricorn, so I understand the dynamic. Also, they have a big fear of rejection. He may like you a lot more than you think. But don't pass up any other good options while you wait! I'm pulling for you!

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon, with a Cancer Rising. As my Rising, or Ascendant, sign is Cancer, my Descendant sign is Capricorn. What does it mean that my Moon sign and Descendant sign are the same? Which is stronger in me, my Moon sign or Rising sign?

Answer: I think the Capricorn Moon is comfortable being in the descendant house since that's Capricorn. It can mean you are looking for a mature partner, or perhaps will find one who is older than you. That would be OK. The Capricorn Moon is serious and doesn't show affection easily, but since you have Cancer Rising, that is an outwardly loving and creative sign, and that will help as far as showing affection. Also, being a Gemini Sun, you are a good communicator. Normally Geminis get bored fast and change often. But Cancer and Capricorn are both cardinal leadership signs, making you ambitious and goal driven. So it's a maturing influence.

As far as the Trinity goes, the Sun, Moon, and Rising sign carry equal weight. None is stronger than the other, but thanks for asking, others have too.

Question: What is the problem with having the same Moon sign and Descendant sign, as my Moon sign and Descendant sign is Capricorn?

Answer: If I am understanding this correctly, your Moon is in Capricorn, and Capricorn is on the cusp of your seventh house? There is nothing wrong with this. The seventh house is the marriage house, and indicates what type of person you would like to marry. The person would show Capricorn traits, be sensitive, ambitious, hard working, sensual, but in private, family oriented, and reserved until they get to know people. You want a gently assertive person.

Since it's your Moon sign, it rules your emotions. So you keep your cards close to the vest, until you really get to know someone. You are sensible and practical, and ambitious, just like you want a spouse or loved one to be. You are a leader and others trust you, because you have proven to them that they can. You sometimes tend to hold in your emotions, but don't do that for too long. Try to talk things out with whoever the disagreement is with.

So there really is no problem here, every one of the twelve houses of astrology has a zodiac sign on the cusp, like the descendant. That's what cusps are. There is no such thing as being "born on a cusp", though after a 40 year practice people still ask me several times a day. Best Wishes.

Question: Concerning zodiac signs, does the Descendant sign give information about our ancestors? Which sign gives information about our ancestors or our parents?

Answer: No, the descendant isn't about ancestors. Here are the most important houses, called angular houses..The 1st house, because it's the ascendant and the way others see us.The 4th house, which rules our home life and family, and real estate we may inherit, part of your question. That house also rules ancestors, and the 3rd house rules relationships with brothers and sisters, or people we are close to and see often. The 7th house rules marriage and war, and describes the type of traits we want in a spouse or important relationship, as we discussed last night. The 10th house shows how prominent or popular we become in the world, or what we are most noticed for. It usually has to do with career achievements, but it depends on what your strong points or talents are.

Cancer is the most family oriented sign, followed by Capricorn. Capricorn is more duty oriented, Cancer is more out of love, though both care deeply.. When I interpret, I believe the Moon represents the Mother, and Saturn rules the Father. Also, the 4th house rules the Mother, and the 10th house the Father. Saturn is also the most karmic planet, so I would look there for info about ancestors. Are there any really strong planetary aspects to your Moon or Saturn? I feel like you are working on a larger question.

Question: I have a Sagittarius sun, Capricorn moon, Aries rising, Mercury, Venus, and Mars in Sagittarius, Jupiter jn Scorpio, Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn, Pluto in Scorpio. I'm already pursuing my career as a doctor, how good will I be at it? I'm a lazy person who procrastinates a lot, doesn't this contradict my moon? What is my love life going to be like?

Answer: I'm sorry, but without casting a whole Natal Birth Chart, I can't interpret this much information. Astrology is a lot more than what the planets in the signs mean. They are all in houses, and all the planets make aspects to each other. So if I were to interpret what's here, I am missing too much info, and what I told you could be wrong.

A Natal Birth chart is a personality profile for your whole life, a picture of the sky at the time of your birth. It takes hours to interpret and to draw it up. But it does tell your potentials and pitfalls and ways to work around them. An astrologer needs to know your time of birth, city and country.

It's simply too much work for a question and answer portion of a freelance writing site, and this is what this is. I began answering simple questions as it was a requirement of the site, but now people are asking for more and more hours of my time. I have been an astrologer for 40+ years, but can't spend time interpreting little bits of info which could be contradicted if I cast a whole chart. I would be happy to work with you if you wanted a chart, my blog address is listed on my profile.

Question: I am a Scorpio sun, Capricorn moon and a Leo rising. What does that say about me as a person?

Answer: Scorpios are strong, independent, psychic, caring, and hard workers. You make your own rules and are likely to change many times in your life as you evolve. Scorpios are reserved at first and are careful who they let into their lives. They aren't snobby, just cautious. Plus being very emotional, you do need time to yourself. You will help the circle of people you love and do anything for them. The Capricorn Moon is also a bit discriminating, so you really do have a little trouble letting people in. Capricorns are ambitious and hard working. You are emotional but don't always show it a lot, most quietly and in private. The Leo rising brings you out more. Its the way others see you being the rising sign. It's' a more outgoing and friendly vibe, needed here, warm and inviting. Leo and Scorpio are both fixed signs, so you can be a tad stubborn, but the Capricorn in you can be reasonable. Leo gives you artistic talent too! I think it's a good trinity.

Question: I am a Gemini rising, Capricorn sun, and Capricorn moon, could you give some insight into my astrological signs?

Answer: Having the same zodiac sign--Capricorn--for both your Sun and Moon sign, means you are the same way outside that you feel on the inside. That's another way of saying, "What you see is what you get."

Capricorn Sun people are serious, but have a dry sense of humor. You are sensible and reliable. This is a leadership sign, so you are ambitious and have plans for the future. In fact, you always plan ahead. People often come to you for advice, because they know you will listen and tell them something of value, not just some nonsense. You have a good head for business and I can easily see you climbing that mountain of achievement.

The Moon rules your emotions, and they aren't much different. You are a reserved person who takes time to get to know others. You want security in your life and will be careful how you spend. You may date often if single, because of the Gemini rising, but I believe the Capricorn makes it so you see a person and don't see them for long unless they have long time partner potential. You have some trouble expressing emotions, but the Gemini can help here. You care deeply about your family and tradition.

Gemini rising is the way people see you on the outside. So you seem more outgoing and playful than you really are. But this also helps you to communicate more easily than a double Capricorn, so it's a good thing. You are intelligent and come off as brainy. You are fun to talk to and know a little about many topics. It's a nice Trinity.

Question: I have a Pisces sun, Capricorn moon with a Capricorn everything else! I get bored of dating after awhile. I really want to find a reliable, responsible man with mutual attraction but I've always struggled with dating and a man to be in a relationship with. Dating has always been fun for a little while but becomes repetitive and boring after that with nothing to show for it in the end. Maybe this isn't a sign thing?

Answer: Pisces Sun sign people do get bored easily. They are romantics, but having a lot of planets in Capricorn can also be grounding for a water sign person. Another thought is that Capricorn is the sign of achievement, or one of them. Maybe at this time in your life you are more concerned with building your career, or a different aspect of your life? The wish for a reliable, responsible man is a very Capricorn concept, maybe he just didn't come along yet. I am glad you have fun dating. I think the interesting person who has the qualities you seek just hasn't come into your life. A Cancer wouldn't be boring and shares the love of security and ambition, but is more emotional and outgoing. Virgos are intelligent and also like to keep active, plus a Sun Virgo is your opposite, there is always attraction there. Be patient!

Question: I'm a Capricorn sun, Aries moon and Libra rising and feel very much the leader that 3 cardinals would imply, but I don't always see that playing out in my relationships and even less so in my career. I am passionate and driven, but my interest seems to wane after a time or I get distracted. How would you advise someone with my astrological makeup of cardinal signs?

Answer: Wow, that's all the cardinal signs! I believe the reason you aren't feeling them in career or relationships means they aren't in the 7th or 10th houses. The 7th house would be partnerships and the 10th career. Those are cardinal houses, as well as the 1st and 4th. But this is called a T square if you have planets in certain houses--not only the natural cardinal ones.

You could have other planets in signs that aren't as focused, like Gemini or Sag. But it really comes down to houses where the planets in these cardinal signs are.

Question: I'm a Pisces sun and Capricorn moon. What is the best career suited for me?

Answer: It would help if I knew which of the 12 houses the Sun and Moon were in, as they tell me the things most meaningful to you.

You are creative and restless with your Pisces Sun. You like people and have much empathy, so I can see you in a field where you nurture others in a medical or mental health way. You will make a fine counselor or creative consultant if you enjoy using your creative talents.

The Capricorn Moon means you are sensible and like order, also being in charge so that you could start a business (maybe in the hospitality industry)? And be the overseer of the whole place. You are good with figures so accounting or insurance, being a financial adviser, or a stockbroker may interest you. It's a toss-up between your creative urges and the ones to lead the way for others. You have a strong drive to succeed, and with your Moon sign would rather be the person behind the scenes. I like art or creative activities for you. There's a close relationship between math and art, and this combo can make good use of that.

Question: I am a Cancer sun, Capricorn moon and Gemini rising. I am a mess. I feel all over the place, and like I can’t commit to anything. Why could this be?

Answer: I don't know of any large planetary aspects that would be affecting you right now to make you feel upset. I am Cancer with a Capricorn Moon too. Planets move all the time, and Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, is in Scorpio, so that should be a stabilizing effect on you, but maybe it needs to move farther into the sign until you start to feel it. Also, being Cancer, the Sun is in Scorpio now for about one month, and this is normally a time when life flows a bit more easily. I can't really answer a question like this without seeing a birth chart. Planets can be affecting your money house, marriage house, career house, I have nothing to read without a chart.

Cancers are creatures of change. Both Cancer and Capricorn are leadership signs and are very ambitious. Does some of this stem from feeling unappreciated at a job? Or maybe you need a change in a job or want to start a new career direction. Going to a stressful job we hate can make us feel like a mess. Having some planets in common with you, I changed jobs often and never liked being told what to do, so worked better when I had more control. I can see you having your own business, especially with great communication skills from the Gemini rising. Both Cancer and Capricorn have a good head for business. How about real estate? It's only a 75 hr. course in most states. I hope things get better soon.

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon, with a Cancer Rising, Pisces Midheaven and Libra Imum Coeli. Which country is best suited to my personality, if I want to settle there between Germany and the USA?

Answer: There is not a lot of reliable research on what Countries and Cities are compatible with specific zodiac signs. But you reminded me of a very old book I had, and I did find out a few things. The U.S. is a Cancer country, born on the Fourth of July, and New York City is considered Cancer. Berlin, Germany is thought by many to be good for Capricorns. It appears that Geminis like London, England. So I guess you would decide between NY and Berlin, both fascinating cities. Both are good for artists as well.

Question: I'm a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon, and Capricorn Rising. I have such a hard time trying to place my emotions, and speaking out loud about how I'm truly feeling to people. This causes problems in my relationship. I get detached very easily when not meaning to or even realizing it sometimes. It's very hard to talk about my feelings and to recognize what things really are. Do you have any advice?

Answer: The Gemini Sun means you are bored easily in relationships and can seem too detached at times. But you are intelligent and fun.

I think that, coupled with the Capricorn Moon mostly, but the Rising sign too, is the issue. Capricorn Moon people are very emotional, but they don't show it; they hold in their feelings, or they only admit them privately. They are sensual, but not particularly lovey-dovey. I have a Capricorn Moon, too, and people often think I don't want to be bothered. Capricorn is about time, and we have a way of deciding if we want to spend so much time in a relationship, or if it's serious enough to give it our attention. You want emotional security, though.

The rising sign means you come off as very serious and sensible, even though your fun Gemini side comes through. So it's a mix of being detached, and not expressing yourself enough. Sometimes something upsets me and it doesn't hit me for days. Work on trying to talk about your emotions more. It clearly bothers you if it's causing problems. Also, your other planets are also all in zodiac signs, so some are probably in signs that are more expressive.

Question: I am a Libra Sun, Capricorn moon, and Gemini rising. I actually struggle a lot with my current relationship regarding communication, and while I know my partner has a part in that, I’d like to know if I need to learn or know something important about this combination?

Answer: Well, you are very ambitious with the Libra Sun and Capricorn Moon, so I will say you probably work hard. Libra likes to do things in partnerships and wants to marry someday, and Capricorn Moon people are conservative and also want to marry, but they hold in their emotions or only like to show them in private. So maybe the other person resents how hard you work, or you aren't showing enough affection? Also, Capricorn moon people are choosy about who and how they spend time, so if the other person isn't as ambitious and hardworking or as much as a planner as you, this will eventually bother you too much.

Gemini Rising helps you come across as less serious, and you are a little bit flirty. This is a fun part of your personality, and goes well with your Libra sun. Two air signs means you are intelligent and get bored easily. So your partner needs to be at least an achiever you respect, and has to work to keep you interested. And you have to learn to show your feelings more, or if you aren't, maybe they just aren't there as strongly as you think they are? I hope it works out. I don't know about the partner, but that's OK, since we aren't doing a whole horoscope with these kinds of questions. Best Regards. Jean

Question: I am Capricorn Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Cancer rising. What does it mean?

Answer: Ok, well you wrote this from an article titled Capricorn Moon Sign Emotions, so if you didn't read it and just asked me a question on a public forum where I don't have time to explain it in depth, go back again and read it.

The same goes for the meaning of a Capricorn Sun:

Cancer rising is the way others see you, or the facade you wear. As a Cancer, you are more friendly and approachable to others. You are kind and thoughtful, and have many close friends who you treat as family, and you are a family oriented person.

Read the articles about your Sun and Moon sign interpretations, that is why I wrote them. Add in what I said as to your ascendant. No worries, it's just I wrote a lot of material to answer these questions, and have dozens of people writing me each day to write about them again, because they don't read them. I worked hard to write all these instructional articles as an astrology teacher, and when people are asking me a question AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIECE where I wrote 3,000 words, it's just lazy.

Question: I am a Leo sun, Capricorn moon, with Libra rising. I was born on August 6th, 1998 and I am wondering what someone with the same placements would be like according to astrology?

Answer: I'm a bit confused by this question. Do you know someone with these same placements? It's not that unusual. The Sun, Moon and Ascendant or Rising Sign is known as a Trinity in Astrology. It's the point where I start interpreting when I do a Natal Birth Chart. But I can explain this trinity.

The Leo Sun is warm and outgoing. You are a good host and like to get out and entertain often. Leos can be bossy and are very independent, and being a fixed sign, their stubbornness can cause relationship issues. But then you can just win the person over again. You are a romantic, and probably want to have children someday.

The Capricorn Moon is reserved until you feel sure of a person. You want to be in a secure relationship where you feel safe. In fact, emotional security is very important to you. You are a sensible person, and the one all your friends come to for advice. You are reliable and respected in your crowd and dealings.

Libra rising is the way you appear to others, so you are a charmer! Libra is ruled by Venus. I like this because it makes you a little more light-hearted. Both Libra and Capricorn are cardinal signs of leadership, so you are ambitious and have definite goals in life. The Capricorn Moon can make you a bit of a social climber, or you just will be drawn to someone who has a steady job and generally good life prospects. You aren't going to fall in love with a struggling artist. But Libra rules the marriage house, and you do want to be married or half of a stable couple. Leo and Libra are both romantic signs, so help make that Capricorn Moon a bit less serious. I hope this helps answer your question. There is only so much for me to interpret with Trinities, although you gave me a birthday, I would need more than that to cast a whole Natal Birth chart, and couldn't do it here.

Question: I am new to astrology. I am a Taurus Sun and an "out of bounds capricorn moon" with a 26 degree declination. I have been a loner since I was a child. Will things change?

Answer: The "out of bounds" Moon is not something that many astrologers use when interpreting charts. There is already so much information in a Natal Birth Chart. Each zodiac sign has 30 degrees, from 0 to 29 degrees. If I were to use this out of bounds theory, it would discount any of the planets in degrees 23-29, almost one third of the possible degrees they could be in. So I don't consider it, and after over 40 yrs. of practice, have never used this method. Newer astrologers keep adding more and more bells and whistles, like all the asteroids, when they really don't matter in an individual's chart that much. They can matter in a whole country's chart. I feel it's an unnecessary distraction.

The Capricorn moon means you are very reserved and probably don't make friends easily. It takes you longer to get to know people and to trust them. You are discriminating in the sense that you want to decide if you want a certain person in your life. You don't express your feelings easily. But the Taurus Sun is easier. Since both are Earth signs, Taurus is ruled by Venus, so you are kind and gentle, generally helping others and enjoying them more easily. You like nice things, but are a hard worker.

Plus every planet in your natal birth chart is in a zodiac sign and house, and a distance away from each other planet which has a meaning called an aspect. As a beginner, learn the basics. What does each Sun sign mean? What does each planet mean? What do the houses mean? What does each planet mean in the zodiac sign and house? Then you must learn the aspects, conjunctions, sextiles, trine, squares, oppositions. That will take a good two years right there. Plus you need to learn the symbols, or glyphs, that represent the planets and zodiac signs. Some astrologers just like to sound superior by making more out of small issues like this out of bounds thing, when without that, or asteroids, I take at least 10 hours to interpret a chart. And I draw them up without a program, any beginner should learn to do that before depending on computer charts. So there are years of learning before you need to add negligible information to the interpretation of your astrology chart. It's more important to learn what aspects your Moon DOES make to other planets, instead of worrying about how far it is from the equator and such, or how it "appears."

Question: I am a Leo sun, Capricorn moon and Sagittarius rising. I always feel on the outside looking in when it comes to social scenarios and am hypersensitive to other peoples feelings about me. It's very difficult to emote at times but I don't want to be seen as a weak person or be manipulated. It takes a lot for me to open up to people and I feel like this perpetually keeps me single. Am I insane for feeling like an outsider?

Answer: No, I don't think you are insane at all. The Capricorn Moon rules your emotions, and this seems to be what you are describing here. It's a sensitive sign and you do feel very strongly. You just don't show it unless you feel really secure with someone and safe, usually in private. It certainly is not a weakness, Capricorn is actually a leadership sign, and I am sure you are a reliable and sensible person with a good head for business. The Leo Sun is warm and generous, that side of you should come out more. It's a loving sign, one who loves to entertain and be out with other people. The Sag rising is also a fire sign, so there is a lot of warm feeling here. And enough strength not to feel manipulated.

Having trouble emoting doesn't have to be so bad. Sometimes people are too quick to say they love you and that makes it less meaningful, doesn't it? Capricorn rules time, and so you sort of size people up and decide if they are worth your time before you try to get to know them better. I think you are attractive being a Leo, and Sag rising is the way others see you or your facade, and Sag doesn't judge others. Try to express yourself a little more, you can do it. Or you will find someone with a more gentle emotional nature who is more like you.

Question: I am a Capricorn Sun, Capricorn Moon, and Gemini Rising. I am a college student in my 2nd year and I do not know which path to take that will truly lead me to what I want to do. Right now I am a Marketing Major. What do you think is the best path for me in college based on my astrological signs? Also, I noticed that I get into a depressive mood out of nowhere and I can hold myself back. How can I avoid my depressive moods?

Answer: First of all, being a college student in your 2nd year and now being sure what path to take is not that unusual. Most students I know change their majors about that time. But having Capricorn Sun and Moon and telling me you are a Marketing Major isn't a bad choice, Capricorns are best known for their business ability and organizational skills. Also for their ability to climb the corporate ladder. So even if Marketing doesn't thrill you, I think some kind of business degree will benefit you in the end.

The Capricorn Sun means you are a leader and attract others because they trust you and know they can rely on you. It's an ambitious sign and you do have goals, even if they aren't defined now, I believe you want to be an achiever. Capricorns are hard workers and sometimes ignore their emotional sides. The Capricorn Moon rules your feelings, and it is hard for you to express them. So you hold them in, even though you are an emotional person and care deeply about others. So it's hard to read you. Saturn rules Capricorn, and it's the karmic teacher. That's what brings on the depressive moods, you take everything too seriously. Now, all your other planets are in zodiac signs too, so there's the info I don't have here, so I can't see all of what can help.

But the Gemini Rising is a start. This is how others see you, the facade you wear. Geminis are witty, fun, outgoing and charming. So try acting more as your Gemini Ascendant dictates to you. Since friends see that fun you, hang around with them when you feel the blues coming on. That's at least one way to avoid all that Capricorn from pulling you down. Also, Capricorns are successful. Perhaps you need a better major where you would be happier. As I said, many people change their majors at this point. Maybe see a college counselor and discuss better where you want to be going, or where you see yourself in the future. You are resourceful and can go far.

Question: I am an Aries Sun, Capricorn Moon and Virgo rising. I am very highly ambitious and overcompetitive in almost anything. How do I better myself?

Answer: Both Aries and Capricorn are what we call cardinal signs of leadership, so you are hard-wired to achieve, it can't be helped. Virgo rising makes you appear less ambitious and more practical and reliable to people, and Virgo influences will make you easy to communicate with in life. That may be the saving grace which helps you seem like a team player, so others are not threatened by you. I think that is the problem?

Aries means you want to be first, like attention, but also have original ideas. You wouldn't have the patience to carry them out if you didn't have a Capricorn Moon. It's an emotional moon sign which means you crave security. But also, Virgo and Capricorn are Earth signs, so there's a way for you to relax--in nature. Try to go camping, or take trips to the beach and woods when you can. Nature will calm you and give you the best results for relaxing you need to be so competitive.

I think most people perceive you as serious, even with the Aries Sun. Try to strive for balance in your life. You also need a good diet and exercise with that Virgo rising, and you may suffer from IBS. So be careful about that. As long as you find a way to relax, you'll be fine.

Question: My birthday is April 21st, 1984 and I was born at 14:52 GMT. I believe I am a Taurus/Aries cusp, with a Capricorn Moon and Mars, and Scorpio Rising. I have a strong need to succeed professionally, but I find myself worried about failure and I hesitate acting upon my desires. Could understanding my natal chart help me?

Answer: Yes, the only way to understand yourself through astrology is to get your Natal Birth Chart done, but I can't do it here. I give info on my blog, but people seem to just want free readings here. And it's hard for me because it's nowhere near a whole chart and I can't tell much by interpreting the little info people are sending. I have written many astrology articles, including one which shows you how to cast your chart if you don't want to pay for one. Nobody is born on a cusp; you have to be a Sun Aries or Taurus. The Capricorn Moon and Scorpio rising do mean you strive for success. But Capricorn influences do give people a bit of an inferiority complex.

Question: I am a Libra sun, and Capricorn moon and my cynical side and romantic side contradict. And since I'm a Libra, I don't know what to be. I struggle with my identity, as weird as it sounds. What should I do?

Answer: Neither Libra or Capricorn is cynical, so it must be other planets in your astrology lineup causing you this perceived contradiction. Libra Suns are interested in being in partnerships, both in business and romance. Both Libra and Capricorn are cardinal leadership signs, so you are ambitious and should know what you want out of life. Or at least what you don't want. Capricorn Moon emotions are deep and true, you just hold them in too much (I have my Moon there and am guilty of that too)! You shouldn't be struggling with your identity this much over what you tell me here, so I suspect it's something else.

I think you have to do some soul searching and decide what you want out of this time in your life. I don't know how old you are, or what your circumstances are, so it's hard for me to say. Astrology isn't always the answer to everything. Even if you do have issues with other planets in Zodiac signs or aspects from difficult planets, you always have Free Will, and your chart shows ways to combat these problems.

I can do a Tarot reading or cast a Natal birth chart if you want. I can be found at Or you may contact me through my profile on if you want more privacy.

Question: I’m a Virgo Sun, Capricorn moon and that rising. Any advice on bettering myself?

Answer: Your Virgo Sun means you are practical, intelligent, sensible, careful about health and diet, talkative, and a restless person. Virgos can be very critical of themselves and other people, so that is one pitfall you could look out for as you go. You are a hard worker and do what you say you will do.

The Capricorn Moon represents your emotions, and you are reserved in that area. You have deep feelings, but don't express them so easily. Some of that is mitigated by your Virgo Sun. You are ambitious and want good things out of life. You want security and will put the time in to achieve that goal. You probably want to get married, or are, and are conservative in outlook. You would be faithful in love, just learn to show your feelings more, it can be in private, that's OK!

Libra rising is the facade or face you show the world. In Libra, you are fair-minded and also want to be half of a partnership, whether in love, business, or both. This is another cardinal, leadership sign, so again, you are ambitious. Libra is a gentle sign, ruled by Venus. You dress well and like to surround yourself with beautiful things. You are the peacemaker in the group. You like people and enjoy a good social life. It's not easy for you to make decisions, you examine everything from all sides to be fair, so I don't see a downside to that.

The Sun, Moon, and Ascendant are what we call the Trinity in astrology. It's a small portion of an astrology chart, but probably the best thing to ask if you want a mini reading. Of course, to get an ascendant, you have to know your time of birth. I am telling you this only because this is an open forum, and others will read this. Some ask me to do whole chart interpretations, and this is only a Q&A feature on a group site I contribute to as a freelance writer. Some write me with basically a list of questions and seem to expect me to spend hours giving them free readings, and I simply don't have the time (or inclination, as some of them wouldn't do hours of work free either). I don't mind a Trinity so much.

I think yours is good, and that you are an overachiever who doesn't really have to work much harder to better yourself! Try to express your feelings better, don't be afraid of rejection. Don't be so critical of others, or yourself. Work on being more decisive. You will be fine.

Question: I am an Aries sun, Virgo moon and Sagittarius rising and feel very conflicted with who I am. Please help me understand a little about myself. What can I do?

Answer: It's hard for me to answer a question like this without casting a whole horoscope. I see you wrote it from an article I wrote about Capricorn Moon people, but you don't have any Capricorn in your Trinity here. But we can do this. The Aries Sun means you are original, outgoing, a little insecure, and you like to be first. Aries are the trailblazers, so you have many new ideas and are competitive. Aries people don't have forethought, so you never think ahead. This can cause problems in life.

The Virgo Moon represents your emotional makeup. So you may be a nervous person, prone to stomach or other IBS ailments. You are drawn to a romantic partner based on a mental connection first, though you are very romantic, being Aries. You are careful about diet and health, a little critical, but intelligent and a good communicator. You are practical and a loyal friend.

Sag rising people are usually easy going and don't judge others. You have big ideas, and with the competitive edge Aries gives you, may dream up large schemes and then forget about them. Rising signs are how others see you, so you are well liked and kind-hearted. You live and let live. You love to travel and get bored fast. Virgo and Sag are what we call mutable signs, so you change often and this may confuse others as to what you want or how you are. Aries and Sag are fire signs which give you energy and optimism. The Virgo in you wants everything to be tidy and neat, and life isn't like that. I don't know if any of these interpretations help with your conflicts. Astrology is so much more than a Trinity, or a few planets in zodiac signs.

Question: I am a Libra Sun, Taurus Moon, Scorpio rising. I am in love with a guy having Taurus Sun, Capricorn Moon, and Cancer Rising. Are we compatible?

Answer: Yes, I like this combination. Both Libra and Taurus, your Sun Signs, are ruled by Venus, the planet of love. Libras like to go out and shop, to entertain, get out of the house. Taurus people are quieter, but also like the good things in life, so you both have this in common. Taurus is a hard worker, and so is a Libra, as both realize you need money to buy those nice things.You are both romantic.

The Taurus Moon and Capricorn Moon are both Earth signs, so you are both practical and down to earth. You are also both ambitious, as Libra, Capricorn, and Cancer are cardinal signs of leadership. You show your affection and are very sensual with the Taurus Moon, but a Capricorn Moon guy is no slouch either, he just likes to show you in private. He's old fashioned and gentlemanly.

You seem intense and independent with the Scorpio rising, and may intimidate some people. His Cancer rising means people are drawn to him, he is sensitive and a good listener, also nurturing. I think you will be very happy together.

Question: I am an Aries Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Libra rising. For deeper interpretation, I'm a Taurus Mercury, Aries Venus, and Virgo Mars. I have a hard time trying to keep a relationship (friendships, family, and even romantic) since I get bored or see things as pointless. Do you have any thoughts that can help me?

Answer: The Aries Sun and Libra rising do mean that you get bored easily. Aries, Capricorn, and Libra are what we call cardinal signs, and you want to get your way, be the leader, call the shots. Maybe you are too high maintenance?

The Aries in you shows an original and idea person who is outgoing and fun. The Libra Rising shows you want to be a partner, in love or work. Capricorn Moon helps to hold in your emotions.

I think you have a temper (Aries), but hold it in and don't tell others if you are upset until you really have a long list and let it out in one HUGE burst. The Taurus Mercury means you are stubborn and don't change your opinion easily--but Taurus is gentle, and you won't want to hurt feelings. The Aries Venus flirts a lot and is a Venus which craves variety, so you need an interesting partner who won't bore you. The Virgo Mars is the way you act physically, so you are exacting and critical, but also thorough and practical. I have articles on and explaining Mercury and Venus positions further, and also wrote whole ones regarding Suns and Moons (you obviously found the Moon one).

I guess you are critical and get bored fast, but the Capricorn Moon means you want security in relationships, even though you enjoy the thrill of the chase. Libra rising people also really crave having a partner. The Taurus and Virgo should ground you. I think you haven't met the right person yet. You have a very high standard and can be difficult.

As far as family, Capricorn planets are karmic. Normally this is to teach us lessons. But family may be too clingy or throwing too much responsibility on you when you are already grappling with other issues. Even people we love will take advantage of us if we let them. Learn to say no and find a more exciting partner.

Question: I am a Libra Sun, Capricorn Moon and Libra rising. I constantly feel pulling between my signs and struggle with “personality” conflicts. Sometimes I feel like I’m a combination of everything and it becomes overwhelming. What can I do to get some peace of mind?

Answer: I think what you are experiencing stems from the Libra Sun and Rising, which squares your Capricorn Moon. These are cardinal signs of leadership, so you are ambitious, a leader who wants to succeed. What we call these three positions are The Trinity. All of your planets are in a zodiac sign, several of 12 houses which have 3 or 4 important meanings, and also the distance the planets are from each other matter. But when I interpret an astrology birth or Natal chart, I begin with the Trinity, as I feel it is important and a good starting point for me to get a good feel for the person. As you see if you read a few other answers I gave others (you will find some with the same planets in the same signs as yours) I've compromised and have been interpreting Trinities because I can't interpret a whole birth chart here, or calculate one here.

Squares are challenging aspects, especially all in cardinal signs. There's that pull to be always trying to be competitive, to succeed. It must get stressful at times. Libra is an easy going sign, popular, fair, intelligent. You probably are a romantic too, and all work and no play makes a dull person. Then there's the issue you may not know what profession would make the best of your Trinity.

Capricorn Moon is reserved when describing your emotions, and Libra is loving and wants to do things in partnerships. Both signs want nice things and are willing to work hard for them. But I can understand the "pull" these planets in these signs put on you.

Since you have Libra rising, that would put Aries on the 7th house. Normally it's not a big deal, Aries is a cardinal sign too, but you have all 12 around the astrology wheel. Having Aries on the cusp of the 7th is a serious house, the 1st, 4th, 7th, and 10th are. So it's the marriage house, and you are attracted to an Aries or fire sign person. This would be another strong personality, but less serious than you. Aries people are fun loving, very original, love to try new things, want to enjoy life to the fullest. So maybe finding a partner or friends more lighthearted than you would help here. You ARE a combination of a lot more than I can see here, so I hope I helped at least I can confirm that, and your conflict is real.

Question: I have my Moon in Capricorn, my Sun in Cancer and my Rising in Leo. I've always been confused about astrology because I've felt like I don't fit in any of the templates. Can you give me any insight?

Answer: Cancer people are very emotional, but that doesn't mean they always show that, they can be very reserved until people get to know them. They love family and usually want to marry and have a family someday. Cancer is a leadership sign though, so you have plans for the future and are more ambitious than most people. Cancers are very strong; something others don't always realize. The Moon in Capricorn rules your feelings. This is another reserved and ambitious sign. But you have strong emotions. Capricorn Moon people prefer to show that in private, and don't like surprises. I am a Cancer Sun with a Capricorn Moon. You will prefer to marry or have relationships with someone who works as hard as you, and has a decent financial future. You are sensible and realize anything can happen in life, and want to be prepared for that. Later in life, you may or probably will have responsibilities with parents or other family members. The Rising sign in Leo is the way others see you. I like Leo, as you seem outgoing and others get to see the warmth and generosity of your personality. Leos go out a lot and will spend money, but being a frugal Cancer/Capricorn, you won't go too far off budget. Leos are romantic, so this helps bring out those emotions more.

Another reason you may feel you don't fit the "templates," is because ALL 10 planets are in a zodiac sign, and all we have here is called the Trinity. So you could have planets in any of the 12 signs, which would slightly change what I said, although the Trinity is important.

Question: I have Cancer rising, Aries sun, Capricorn Moon, Mars in Taurus. I want to know why I am struggling to express myself? I want to be more aggressive, but it looks like my impulsive Aries is being drowned in wet Cancer. But I feel so much emotional intensity between them. Sometimes when talking to others my soul is "burning up" because I cant even say, "Hello". Mars is in 11th house with Venus, so it makes no sense why I am so introverted or shy. Can you help to explain this please?

Answer: I will surely try to explain it, based on what you told me here. I don't have a whole astrology chart in front of me, but you gave me an ascendant and some 11th house info, so that helps. There is a group of zodiac signs called "cardinal" signs. Aries, Cancer, and Capricorn are all cardinal, or leadership signs. So you are ambitious, and do want to express yourself. Cancer is a water sign, but even though they are reserved and can be quiet until you get to know them, they always end up getting attention. Just like Aries and Capricorn. I believe that both Cancer and Capricorn work that way, opposite signs often have similar traits. So you have the need to communicate, but it's hard for you to speak first, or to say things until you are more comfortable in the situation you are in. Also, both signs are very emotional, but don't show it on the outside. Are you holding in what you want to say too much? That can make you sick. Or do you feel shy at first, need someone else to break the ice? The Aries Sun is impulsive, but also a cardinal sign, so having the Sun there means you are an outgoing person. And I suspect there are certain people you can say anything to and be as assertive as you want. Capricorn Moon is a little fussy about who they hang around with, they can be social climbers, or take a wait and see attitude until they get more involved with others. So I think a lot of that sort of thing is going on with you. The Cancer Rising should make you seem approachable. Mars is physical, and in Taurus, it's gentle, but hardworking. The 11th house rules hopes and wishes, friends. So you probably meet new people through those you already know. That should help you to feel better at speaking to them. Plus if the Venus is close to Mars, also in Taurus, Venus is the love/social life planet. It is easy going, although you could wait for others to come to you first.

I think maybe you are your worst enemy. These are all assertive and outgoing signs. The Sun and Moon are stronger together than the Cancer rising, and Cancers are dramatic. Maybe it's the distance between your planets, called aspects, and I can't tell without a chart. I think you need to set your intention and reach out to others in small ways before they do to you. Then it will get easier. Shyness is usually overcome, I don't know how old you are. But that aside, once you do overcome this enough to realize you don't have to let shyness cripple you, you have a lot of leadership ability that could be very useful in a career, and I think with Mars in Taurus in the 11th house, you can be more talkative and communicate better as you do it more and more. I don't see anything wrong based on what's here.

Question: I am an Aquarius Sun, Capricorn moon, and Taurus rising. What should I look for in a partner?

Answer: Taurus people are security minded and like good things in life, sex, food, wine, comfy furniture, the works. But it's a gentle and sensual sign willing to work to get these things, preferably to share with a partner. Taurus is an Earth sign.

So is your Capricorn Moon. Capricorn also wants many of the same things as Taurus, but is more driven to succeed, and may be a bit of a social climber. Earth signs are sexy, and like spending time glamping and on the beach. Capricorns are serious, but have an unexpected and wry sense of humor.

The Aquarius Sun means you are a nonconformist, different than Taurus and Capricorn. I wish I had more info, all of your planets are in a zodiac sign. So you do need freedom in a relationship or will feel stifled. You may feel comfortable in a more unconventional relationship where you don't see a person so much, but Taurus and Capricorn won't like that.

I would try for a water sign. Cancers and Aquarius get along well, as they are both changeable. Earth signs are attracted to water signs. You could have more planets in Aquarius, like Mercury or Venus, so this is an air sign, which would lead to a fire sign interest. But based on this, I'd go with a water sign.

Question: I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon with Capricorn Rising, I honestly feel like I detached from myself and don’t know who I am. Why is this happening?

Answer: Well, Capricorn influences often make a person hold their feelings in, so that could be a reason you feel detached from yourself. The Moon rules emotions, and in Capricorn, you are strong and don't want to let any sign of weakness show. You don't outwardly show your feelings as much as most people do. This doesn't mean you are unemotional, to the contrary, you are deeply emotional, so maybe try to let your feelings get out more. Make an effort to show others you care. Do something artistic to express yourself. Volunteer somewhere to meet new people who may share more of your interests, or take a class. You do have intense emotions, and are also pragmatic and reasonable. People come to you with their problems, but you won't consider airing your issues to others. I have a Capricorn Moon too! I know so much about everyone's issues I wish I knew less!

The Capricorn Rising is the way you appear to others, the facade you put on. Again, you seem so calm and cool that it never occurs to people you may be having a bad day or bad period in general. You always seem in charge. Plus Capricorn is a very ambitious sign. Are you getting overwhelmed by your work? Do you think you need a different job? This could add to your feeling of detachment if you spend so much time at a job you aren't interested in anymore.

I like the Gemini Sun here. It's an air sign, so you are intellectual and get bored fast. You are interested in a little bit about many subjects. Boredom with your life could also be part of the problem. Geminis love social life, and meeting new people, being out on the town. You may have two loves in your life, or be in love with two people at the same time. Are you in a romantic rut?

These are just a few suggestions based on your Astrology Trinity. You can find me on Google if you want a whole chart cast, I can't see many things with this amount of info.

Question: I am a Taurus sun, Capricorn moon, and an Aries rising. I'm in my early 20s and for some reason, I feel lost, very emotional, and don't really know myself. I've been feeling really unhappy lately. What can I do to change this?

Answer: This isn't really an astrology question. I am sorry you are feeling unhappy, but can't determine what planet energies are in your chart without doing one.

The Taurus Sun means you are gentle as Venus rules Taurus. You are reliable and need security to be happy. You will work hard if it's for something you really want. You are easy going and well-liked. The Capricorn moon is your emotional side, and it's a serious one. You keep your feelings locked up quite tight, although you are emotional, you don't like to show it that much in public. This is also a sign which craves security. Did something happen lately that made your life less secure or scared you? Aries rising means people see you as outgoing, a leader (Capricorn is also a leadership sign). Are you unhappy with a job that's going nowhere? That might be part of the issue. Use the Aries rising to be your charming and friendly self, and it will attract more positive people in your life.

If you continue to feel too depressed or lost, please contact a healthcare professional. I can see those two reasons which may cause you worry and unhappiness for a while, but I can't give mental health advice.

Question: I am a Libra Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Cancer Rising. I feel like these signs collide with each other a lot. Am I right?

Answer: Collide is a strong word. But it's a good question. Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn are what astrologers call "cardinal signs." They are leadership signs which rule major houses in the astrology wheel, although I can't interpret this without casting a whole chart. We are talking about the first house, how others perceive you, the fourth house of family life and real estate, the seventh house of love and war, and the tenth house of career and reputation. So it's all heavy stuff, although Aries is not represented, which rules the first house.

This makeup means you are highly ambitious and want to lead all the time, getting your way, and will be very aggressive about it. That's great in a career situation, but liking your own way all the time can hurt you in social and romantic areas.

The Libra Sun means you are a social creature who truly enjoys being in a partnership, either love or business. You feel empty and prefer to be with a partner in either situation.

The Capricorn Moon means you crave stability in your relationships and in life, but will take a calculated risk if it's to better yourself. This could be to achieve more in a business way, or to "trade up" to what seems to be a love interest who shares more of your ambitious ideals about life. Capricorn Moons are emotional and loving, but sometimes can be social climbers. You are capable of a warm and loving marriage, however.

The Cancer Rising is the way you appear to others and are much of the time on the surface. You are kind, nurturing, love family and kids, have a tight-knit social circle, and are generally well-liked. You aren't judgmental and accept others for who they are. But you do make conscious decisions about whether you want certain people in your life or not, based on what your goal towards them is.

This doesn't have to hurt you. Just be aware of what your motivations are as you enter into each kind of relationship. Your other planets are all in a house and sign too, and that can mitigate what I've said here and softened the edge of having such strong signs in your Trinity.

Question: My Sun is in Leo, and both my Moon and Rising signs are in Capricorn. I find a lot of my moon stuff does not resonate with my personality. Is this unusual?

Answer: It is unusual the way you describe this. Normally the start to interpreting an astrology chart is to explain the Trinity, Sun, Moon, and Ascendant to someone. So you should be exhibiting many Capricorn traits. Even though Leos are sunny and a force to reckon with, having two-thirds of your trinity in Capricorn will make you seem reserved and cautious to those you first meet. The Moon in Capricorn means you are romantic but don't show it publicly. You want a permanent partner and start a relationship hoping it will lead to a long-term one.

The Leo in you means you crave attention and are a bit high maintenance. You are a generous friend and a good host. But this is three little clues about your astrology chart. You could have a stellium (3 or more) planets in Cancer or Virgo, the signs before and after your Sun, and that would change the dynamics of your natal chart.

It could also mean you don't have the Moon in Capricorn; you may have looked it up in a poorly sourced site. If you go to the beginning of the article, click the link, and you can check to see if you have the wrong astrology sign for your Moon sign. The Moon moves fast, and you need a book called an ephemeris to see what sign and degree a person's Moon is at birth. It's based more on your time of birth. Try my link and see if you get Capricorn.

Question: I am a Gemini sun, Capricorn moon with a Aries rising, what does all this mean?

Answer: The short answer is that you are a seemingly very outgoing and lively person, who is more severe than most people suspect.

The Gemini Sun means you are intelligent, interested in many subjects, and always hungry to learn more. You are up on the latest trends, and most likely read, have a blog, or go to the movies to keep up with things. You are restless and can't always turn off your mind, and this can lead to stomach issues. You need more quiet time.

Aries Rising represents the way others see you. Aries is a fire and leadership sign, so you set the tone for the group you are in. You have original ideas and are very inventive. You have a temper, but the Capricorn Moon mitigates that a little. Aries is a sign of friendliness and fun. You start things you don't finish, but again, I see your Moon sign interfering in that. You blurt out things you don't mean when you speak at times. Even if you are angry, you are fast to forgive.

The Capricorn Moon rules your emotions. You want security and are family oriented. You are more conservative than you seem. You have business ability. You are very emotional, but may not show that unless you really know the person well. You plan ahead sometimes, but the Aries in you has no forethought, so there's a conflict there. It would depend on the subject or how much you care. I can't tell without a whole chart. As you get older, your emotions will lighten up a little. You have a streak of taking life too seriously, although the Aries and Gemini help with that. Capricorn is another leadership sign, so I think you will accomplish your goals.

Question: I am a Taurus Sun (technically an Aries/Taurus, as I was born on April 20th), Capricorn Moon, and Cancer Rising - what does this mean for me?

Answer: There is no such thing as "being born on a cusp." There are cusps in astrology, but they are the dividing lines of each of the 12 houses. My husband was born on April 20th, and he was a Taurus, and I think most years it works that way. Since every planet you have is in a sign, you could have Mercury or Venus in Aries, and that's why you exhibit Aries traits. It is different each year--that 21st of the month to 21st of the next month--is a fallacy. If you want to be positive about your Sun Sign, Please write back and remind me I told you to do this--give me the 4/20 again, but tell me the YEAR.

But let's go with Taurus Sun people. Venus rules them, so have a kind and gentle way with people. They are polite and sensible. They don't talk a lot unless they really have something to say. You are a good and loyal friend, and probably have friends around you knew since childhood.

The Capricorn Moon represents your emotions. You hold them in, but some mistake that for thinking you are not emotional, when you really are. Your family means a great deal to you and you need to have security in your life, or at least be working towards it. You are ambitious and a hard worker, as Capricorn is a leadership sign. People accept you as a natural leader. Cancer is also a leadership sign, and the rising sign is the way you appear to others. This actually does allow you to show your feelings more. Cancers are very emotional, sensitive, creative, nonjudgmental and generally well liked by others. They also are close to family. So the Cancer in you makes you a bit more chatty, which I think is good here.

I see you as being sort of conservative, but willing to fight for what you believe in. You are nurturing and truly care about others, though with the Taurus and Capricorn in you, you show that in practical ways. You are likely to write a job resume for a friend, or plan a group vacation and keep track of all the details.

So you are an Earth/Water person, and could easily get along with other Earth and Water signs. You may have Mercury or Venus in Aries or a planet or two in Leo, both fire signs, so can be attracted to air signs or other fire signs. I think it's a nice combination. Best Wishes to you, and if you want me to look up the sun to be sure, come on back!

Question: I am a Gemini sun Capricorn moon Scorpio rising and Mercury, Venus in Gemini. I am always struggling in my personal and professional life. I want to know my sign combination and why is it getting worse day by day?

Answer: I have interpretive articles written on Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in every zodiac sign and will give you the links here. It's better info than I have time to repeat here. I don't know why life is getting worse without casting a complete astrology chart and can be found at Here are the links, and you will have a better understanding of yourself if you read all this: That was for your Gemini Sun. This will explain your Capricorn Moon: Mercury is the way you think, in Gemini it works like this: Venus rules your romantic and social life: Here's an article I wrote about rising signs:

You should be great at communications with all that Gemini in you. But I can't tell what houses these planets are in so can't recommend a career. I also can't see how far the planets are and what aspects they make to each other without drawing out a chart. Astrology is a lot more complicated and time consuming than I can handle on this Q&A section of a group site I write on. I wish I could help more, but I wrote all this information and it can guide you. I sincerely hope life gets better for you. Take care.

Dear halah,

I can't see anything in this trinity that would give you so much trouble dealing with emotions. Virgos usually talk things out, although the Capricorn Moon means you do hold in your emotions. Gemini rising is another talkative and upbeat sign.

If this feeling continues, please call someone and get some help. Talking to a therapist, someone who is not emotionally involved, can be very helpful. Take care, OK?

halah on June 10, 2020:

i’m a virgo sun, cap moon, and gemini rising. for the longest time i’ve had a hard time dealing w my emotions so that resulted in self harm and crying a bunch. is there anything i can do?

Chels on April 14, 2020:

Hi I am an Caprocorn/ Aquarius--Sun ,Capricorn Moon, Gemini Rising

I kinda ambivert and I super empathic but have hard trusting people and showing emotions... how can i. Be more open/ vulnerable and still.feel safe ?

Shadrach on October 20, 2019:

I was born in the night on the 22nd December and that means I’m Capricorn moon, but when I checked, it says my moon is in Aries , I don’t believe that . Someone explain further to me?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 04, 2019:

There is so much information in a Natal Birth chart, this "out of bounds" issue doesn't really mean much at all in an individual's astrology chart. Capricorn moon people can feel insecure, but if you have been abused and are being shunned, I can't blame it on astrology or your chart. Perhaps you should consult a therapist. I can't predict your future based on this information, I would need a whole chart. This Q & A is for questions regarding the article you read, not for free astrology charts. I don't use astrology as fortune telling, I use it for personality profiles anyway. Only people in India are so much into predictive astrology in our times. Perhaps a tarot reading would suit this issue better and tell you what to expect in the near future or year. Best Wishes.

Focal Pop on July 01, 2019:

I found out that my moon is “out of bounds” and is in Capricorn. I have been abused my entire life by parents and teachers and diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome as an adult. I’m about to turn 50 soon.Neighbors seem to be closing their garage doors every time I go for walks. Now I’m afraid to go out because of a fear of rejection and because I fear the universe rejecting me I get angry. It all started in 2001-2002. Before then everyone seemed to like me. Should I be worried about my future?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 28, 2019:

I know it's a hard age and knowing what direction to go in is hard. What are your interests? Do you have a job or go to college? This isn't really an astrology question, I need to cast a whole chart to be able to read. Having a Capricorn Moon and Virgo rising would make you good at business, like banking or accounting. But I can't tell what makes you not motivated. I hope you feel better.

Steph on January 27, 2019:

My sun sign is Sagittarius, moon in Capricorn, Virgo rising .. I’m 19 and I feel very confused with everything at this point in life I don’t know what to do because I feel very unmotivated and it makes me frustrated at times because I feel like a failure I’m not sure where my life is going

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 17, 2019:

I really can't answer this without casting a full Natal Birth Chart. Sorry, I don't do free readings.

Hello Cappy,

There isn't anything wrong with this trinity, but I can't tell much without a full chart. Libra and Capricorn are both ambitious signs. At age 27-30, you are going to experience your First Saturn Return. This is going to change your life in a dramatic way--which could be good, as you do seem to improve yourself. The Capricorn Moon is a moon that seems to cause setbacks and difficult times to overcome. Here's the link to Saturn Returns:

cappy on December 20, 2018:

I am Libra Sun, Capricorn Moon, Sagittarius Rising. I am 27 and still have no idea what I want to do with my life. I will through periods of being very ambitious but I keep having setbacks. My living situation has always been chaotic and stressful. It feels like a never ending cycle. I've tried everything to get back on track. Changing my mindset, setting small goals, trying to find a job I actually enjoy (feels impossible).. This placement feels like a curse!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 04, 2018:

Hi Reyna,

The info you gave me, Sun, Moon, and Ascendant is called your trinity in astrology. This is important, and where I prefer to begin when I interpret a whole Birth Chart. So we can learn from this.

The Capricorn Moon is how your emotions are represented, even if you don't show them. We all keep some feelings hidden. Saturn rules Capricorn, and it's a cold, serious, karmic planet, who wants to teach us lessons. (I have a Capricorn Moon too). It does tend to make us too serious, although I bet you are reliable and practical, and friends come to you for advice. It's not really coldness. You just don't always express yourself to people, or prefer to do it in private. And sometimes you actually feel like some people aren't worth your time. So you need time to yourself. As I said, it's a karmic moon, so you may have medical issues or serious problems in your life that make it so you can't go to every party, or that you work really hard. So it's your Moon that causes this serious attitude people get from you.

But there is help in this trinity. Being a Leo Sun, you are a great host and love to socialize. People are drawn to you and you can be the life of the party. You have a queenly way about you and sometimes enjoy the attention. If planets are transiting the Capricorn Moon, you get serious again.

The Libra rising is another outgoing and fun sign. You are intelligent and know a lot about many things. Libra is the way others see you and the facade you put on. You like life to be in balance, as the scales symbolize Libra. So that would be he ups and downs you feel. Libra is ruled by Venus, so you do anything you can to avoid fighting with others, and may not express a feeling if you think it will hurt anyone. You are charming and well liked by people.

So you really are friendly, it's the Capricorn Moon causing this introversion. But Libra and Capricorn are both what are called cardinal signs, so you have great leadership skills and are ambitious. So Capricorn can help you there. You are an achiever who wants to accomplish your goals.

Another thing going on is that planets are moving all the time, and right now Saturn is in Capricorn, and will be until 2020. I am feeling it too, and have two really serious issues going on in my life that aren't going away. You have to carry on and learn from it. I also get that "down" feeling sometimes lately, as Saturn has been passing over my Moon too. But other things are happening in your chart, and try to get out and enjoy yourself, or keep in balance, as your Libra rising wants you to. Or it could be a good time to change careers or jobs. There isn't anything wrong with you. This will pass. Libra loves partnerships and rules the marriage house, maybe you'll find a new romance soon. Capricorn can make it serious, and that's good serious! Take care and I wish you all the best. Jean

Reyna on October 03, 2018:

I'm a Leo sun / Capricorn moon / Libra rising. I'm so confused with myself and at times I don't know who I am. One day I'll be very happy and filled with life; sociable then the next day I'll be too serious and cold; very introverted. Sometimes it's hard to shake the feeling. I would like to hear your point of view :)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on September 29, 2018:

Hello Aniko.

We have things in common, I am a Cancer Sun, Capricorn Moon person too, but my rising is in Scorpio.

You did good work in describing your astrological Sun and Moon. Actually Cancer and Capricorn are both cardinal signs of leadership, and so you do have goals and want to achieve them. The Cancer Sun means you are kind, giving, nurturing, and creative. Capricorns are serious and reliable, and have that wry sense of humor your describe. This is where the discipline and integrity come in. I think many people confide in you and ask for advice.

Cancer and Capricorn are both reserved people, so it's a little hard for you to decide if you actually want to get to know certain people more. Both are retiring signs and sort of like to be in the background, but Cancers generally end up in the public eye in some way eventually. You attract more mature people or deeper people.

I believe the way to rise and shine is through your Leo Rising. This is the way others see you, or the mask and facade you wear when others don't know you well (we all do it). Leos appear almost regal and have an air of authority about them. People respect them, and you are generous and loyal. I don't know your age, but suspect you will come into your own as time passes, and find things to do and people you "click" with more. Leos are the Queens you know, and soon that part of you will come out!

Aniko on September 28, 2018:

Hi, I’m a cancer sun,capricorn moon, leo rising woman. I’m having difficulty to express myself and showing up. I know and feel inside that I’ve a lot to give and share with others, absolutely aware of my intuition, discipline, integrity, kind, nurturing personality with a light sense humor and valuing and loving the idea of creating or bringing together a community BUT ... any insight where I need to dig or work on things to Shine and Rise? I appreciate your guidance!:)

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 16, 2018:

Nice to see you again, Alex. I have a small site that I do tarot readings and astrology charts from, its All the details are there. If you want to begin learning astrology, go on Amazon and try a used book, but get the reviews on it. In the beginning, you need to learn the meanings of the Sun Signs, what the symbols means, what the houses stand for, and what the planets mean. I have a newer book I got not long ago, because all of mine are old, you may want to try this one: Essential Astrology by Amy Herring. Don't let it intimidate you, as I said before, there is a lot to learn in astrology, and I didn't even start trying to draw charts or interpret more than a planet or sign until after about two years of study. I bought this book a few months ago to see if anything was explained differently from when I was in my 20s, but it's still the same. I think you may do well with this. I don't like reference books on Kindle, but try to buy "real" books used because they are expensive. Write back if you need help or encouragement! Good luck!

Hi Alexandria,

You are very welcome, I hoped I was able to help a bit. It's hard to say, I don't think the burden of getting him to open up more is your issue, it's his. But with Capricorn Moons, they need time to get to trust you and to feel secure. So I guess it wouldn't hurt to just show him affection in little ways. Don't do big, public things, he hates surprises. Just be who you are and express yourself, and maybe he'll get the clue, and start talking and showing how he feels more.

Astrology is fun, but it's harder than people understand. That's why I tend to sound crabby sometimes (Cancer Sun, Scorpio ascendant). In my first semester course that I took in a HS night class when I was about 21, all we learned in one semester was meanings of the 12 sun signs, and how to make the symbols, called glyphs, that represent the planets and each astrology sign. Then we discussed traits of every sun sign. I began my interest at 10, and at that time there were several monthly magazines on the market. In the 2nd half of the semester, we learned the math needed to cast a picture of the sky--the horoscope. Once we all had our own horoscope or Natal chart, we spent years learning to interpret. Now most charts are computerized, but some sites are not good and I know how to see if a chart is incorrect. The best way to learn is to buy a few good interpretation books, and cast your chart, maybe a BF, or a best friend and a family member. That way you will be learning what a planet means in a zodiac sign. First you have to learn what each planet means anyway. Then the aspects are important, the distances they are from each other matter so much. It took years for me to be able to interpret, and I don't mean to be impatient.

For a quick interpretation, not a great one, but OK, is a persons' Trinity, the sun, moon and ascendant, and I think people are catching on to that.

I was also blessed that my BF at the time took courses with me. We were the only couple in the class, so got lots of attention. We dated for 5 yrs. and were married for 34, until he passed on. So I always had someone to bounce my interpretations off. His were so original. If you do decide to do a serious study, try to do it with someone else, it's easier. Good luck with this guy, I think it will be fine. Love, Jean

Alexandria on August 14, 2018:

Thank you so much!! ♡♡♡ If i may ask one more question; is it me who would have to be the more assertive one as far as reaching out to him goes? He always has this nervous/shy energy i thought was me at first, but woah.

*also, i totally have so much admiration for your skill and knowledge in astrology, became one of my biggest interests over this past year!! Hopefully one day, i can reach out to you for a full assesment of my chart!!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 14, 2018:

Hi Alexandria,

Well, he has a Capricorn Moon and Venus in Virgo, so he's fairly serious as far as his emotions (Moon) and love life (Venus). Libra Sun people really love partnerships, they are the type who always knew they would get married. The Mars in Gemini rules what he likes to do physically. So I don't think he's a real macho guy who likes team sports, he likes to compete against himself. I like a sensitive guy for you, because of your Venus and Mars in Pisces. They are opposite signs (Virgo and Pisces), but that's the spark which you need in a good romance!

Your Taurus Sun means you are ruled by gentle Venus, so you are down to earth, sensible, reliable and kind, always wanting to help others. His Libra Sun is also ruled by Venus, but he's more ambitious than you, Libra and Capricorn are leadership signs, so he has plans for the future he wants. He may not show his feelings in public, and he may hold back a bit with the Venus in Virgo, but both are good for a couple who shares some earth signs.

Your Moon in Leo means you are the Queen and want lots of attention in a relationship. Your Moon works well with his Mars in Gemini. Venus in Pisces is the most spiritual and psychic kind of lover, you are so sensitive and wear your heart on your sleeve. The Mars in Pisces means you are a dreamer, but also very artistic and creative. Your Virgo ascendant means you understand the Virgo in him, which rules his Venus, love life.

Oppositions like the Virgo/Pisces add spice to things. You are both calm people who can talk out your issues. He has more trouble expressing his feelings than you do, they are a little bit repressed. But other than that, I think you will be OK. I have a Capricorn Moon so understand it well. He wouldn't waste time on you if he wasn't serious :). Best of luck and take care. Go for it.

Alexandria on August 14, 2018:


I will be very interested in a full natal interpretation when i can afford it, but i was wondering if i could get a mini interpretation? I am a Sun in Taurus, Moon in Leo, and Venus & Mars in Pisces ascendant in Virgo. Im interested in a guy with a Libra sun, Capricorn moon, venus in Virgo and Mars in Gemini. Not sure of his ascendant, but its driving me nuts how serious he is lol

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 11, 2018:

Hello Tanya,

I have written whole articles regarding Scorpio Sun and Capricorn Moon emotions, and it looks like you wrote this on the Capricorn article, so I will give you the URLs and they are better explanations of what your Sun and Moon mean than I have time to explain here:

All this explains your Moon and Sun Sign.

Sagittarius rising is discussed here: All ascendants or rising signs are discussed here. Read all three articles and put the info together, and that should be a huge help in answering your questions. I don't want to be rude, but I spend a lot of time writing these instructional articles, and then people go to them and ask questions at the bottom which are answered in the articles. It's not fair to me when I already wrote a few thousand words to answer these questions, and people don't want to read and skip down and ask me again what they mean on this forum. If you need more info, I have a site on Google you can find and cast horoscopes for paying clients. Best Wishes. Jean

Tanya on August 07, 2018:


Im a Scorpio sun, Capricorn moon and Sagittarius rising.. I do notice a lot of Scorpio and Capricorn traits in myself but not sure about my Sagittarius side? So could you give some insight on this trinity please?


Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 01, 2018:

Well, I am unsure why you seem lost. This whole trinity is in Earth signs, which although sensible and practical, could also allow you to become stuck or in a rut? Is that the problem? When is the last time you did something new? Virgo Sun people are intelligent and witty, normally making friends easily. You are talkative and friendly. The Capricorn Moon means you don't show your feelings as much, at least in public. But you are strong, hard working, ambitious, and want security in your life. Is something going on that is making you feel unsafe or insecure? The Virgo rising is the way others see you, so it's much like your Sun. You appear trustworthy and kind, and people often tell you a lot about themselves. You are helpful towards others and keep a cool head in an emergency.

We could do a tarot reading if you want, it tells us what's happening now, what happened in the recent past to cause that and where your life is going in the next year. I am a I think tarot readings answer short term issues like this more than casting a whole astrology chart. Best Regards.

Jo on August 01, 2018:

I am a Virgo sun, capricorn moon and virgo rising and i feel lost and don't know what to do

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 26, 2018:

Dear Robin,

I am sorry to hear you are going through a hard time. A Capricorn Moon can definitely make you appear more serious than the average person, I have one myself. If you have other aspects at play with your Natal Saturn, that could also cause issues in your life. Saturn is the karmic, or teacher planet, and the ways it uses to teach us things are often harsh and hard to deal with.

I charge $100.00 for a Natal Birth Chart, but it's about 20 pages of interpretation just about you, it's not computerized. A one sentence reading wouldn't do much to help you. I also do tarot readings and usually suggest those for people who want to know what opportunities and challenges are coming up in the year ahead, and that's around $35.00. I can be reached at Take care.

Robin Meblind on July 25, 2018:

I have a Capricorn moon and so, I've always been very somber. I was recently diagnosed with major depressive disorder at 34. When I think about my life I can't remember when I wasn't kinda sad, so maybe that's all separate from the cap moon, or in addition to all the other saturn at play in my chart. The point is, I'm going through a very, very rough time right now, and i'm having a very hard time imagining myself in the future, like, i have no instinct to be anywhere. I know what I want, but I still doubt that it will make me happy. i'm so afraid of irreversible mistakes. If you have time and are willing, I would like to discuss a professional reading. I don't have a job right now, so I can only pay you so much, but I am willing to pay just might only have a one sentence response that i can pay for. :) j/k I don't know if that's your thing or not. I would just like to know if there is anything crucial that can help me through this time.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 03, 2018:

Hello Xari,

Believe me, I hear all kinds of things people don't tell their Mothers, lol. But being a Cancer with a Capricorn Moon, I am nurturing and you are safe with me.

The reason you like "double anything" goes to your Gemini Sun. You are intelligent so pursuits that require brains come easily to you. Geminis get bored really fast, so it's no surprise you don't like to follow through unless you have someone to cheer you on. Or because of all that Capricorn, you don't want to "lose face". Your reputation and how others see you matters more than you think. Gemini is also refined, hence your interest in music and likely all kinds of arts. You are a good communicator and should use that in a job or career search. Geminis don't like crude or rude people.

Capricorn Moon will help you finish what you start, also the Capricorn Rising. You are ambitious, I think you haven't decided your life direction yet. You hold in your emotions so people can't read you. You make decisions whether people are worth your time. That sounds cold, but you are sensitive, and don't want to be hurt or waste time. Capricorn rules time. You are very emotional in private, it's just not there to display to the world unless it's for someone who really matters to you. You are warm, earthy, sexy.

Capricorn Rising is the facade you put on. You seem hard to approach, but not as tough as Scorpio Rising. You are a strong person and others tend to lean on you. Once people do seek you out, you come off as down to earth and practical. You are kind and seem sort of gentle.

All the planets in the stellium are intensified. That's how it affects you. It matters what house they are in. I have an article about Astrology houses on, and if you look it up on Google, you can see what issues and things matter in this stellium; what parts of your life are affected so strongly by it. The close Neptune softens the Capricorn influences. It won't make a Gemini/Capricorn dreamy, like other signs, but it will give you more creativity and make you less judgmental.

It's the Gemini in you which rebels against routine. Or other planets in signs I don't know about. You don't want to disappoint other people. I think you are a "fair" cookie, leaning more to tough. Take care. Jean

Xari on July 03, 2018:

Hello there!

For starters, it feels very cute to ask you a question, you have the same sun/moon combo as my mother. (haha, this was such a typical moon in 1st house observation).

Could you please give an insight on my big3?

I have a gemini sun, capricorn moon, capricorn rising.

Also, I would like to ask how, in your opinion is my moon modified because it's caught tightly in 1st house capricorn stellium between uranus and neptune. The neptune conjunction is so close, it's 3 seconds to be exact... I am not very ambitious, except when its in a structured enivronment (did well in school) and expected to do a certain thing. (e.g if I have to exercise, will slack if I am alone, but if there's a coach, I will pull through anything)...routine feels painful. Music ''speaks'' to me. Saturn also in 1st( downards in aquarius). These planets are way too contradicting between themselves. Can I be a soft cookie and a tough cookie? As a gem, I like double-anything.

Thank you very much!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 26, 2018:

Oppositions in astrology are not a bad thing. I have a Cancer Sun and a Capricorn Moon. It just means you may have more trouble expressing yourself in a clear way, or will not show your emotions in a very effusive way unless in private. The opposition can even be challenging to the people you know and can make you seem more interesting to them.

The Scorpio Sun means you are independent, hard to sway, passionate and smart. Most Scorpios are leaders at what interests them the most.

The Cancer Rising means you seem friendly and nurturing at first glance, and you really are that way, it's what attracts others to you. You listen when people talk, have strong family connections, and want security in life. Cancers are also leaders, and you tend to be changeable, but since Scorpio is a fixed sign, the Cancer in you keeps you learning new things and going to new places.

The Capricorn Moon represents your emotions, and is another leadership sign. You are definitely not a follower and know what you want or don't want in life. You are reserved in your emotions until you are sure about someone, but then show them how loving you really are. You will work hard to achieve your goals. Basically, you need to take your time to get to know anyone you really care about, because you are passionate but may show it too fast and that's why you get hurt. Try not to hold things in, discuss your issues with others, and as I said, wait and decide if people are worth your time. Best, Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 24, 2018:

I would love to help you, but to interpret this and draw up a chart to be able to do so, it would take 10-12 hours. This is a group website, not my own, and I must charge for my time and experience if I draw up a complete astrological birth chart. You may find me at for details. Best Regards.

Prerana on June 23, 2018:

I am scropio sun , capricorn moon and cancer rising. I am confused that you said cancer is the opposite side of capricorn. I always had trouble handling my emotions. What can I do?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 27, 2018:

Planet Uranus went into Taurus last week, it takes 8 yrs. for it to go through a zodiac sign. Since it's a fixed sign, and your Leo Sun is fixed, this can cause change that you aren't expecting. This would be true if you were born early in the Leo cycle.

But you are sort of happy go lucky, being a Leo with a Gemini Ascendant. Or at least you come off that way. Your Capricorn emotional side means you like stability and are more serious and studious than some people realize--the ones who don't know you well.

Leo is a star! You like to be noticed, and like to get attention from others. You want to get out there and see what's going on in the cultural and clothing world. You adore nice things, and want to have them.

The Gemini Ascendant is how you appear to people. So you are intelligent and talkative, although some of the chattiness can come from nervousness. You still know much about many topics and get bored with people who aren't interesting enough to hold your attention.

The Capricorn emotions you feel are deep, but you don't show that unless you are sure, and unless you really mean it. You are ambitious enough to reach those Leo goals and talented enough to make the life you want. You are strong and have drive. You are family oriented and Capricorn brings out the tradition in you.

I see you being a liason of some sort, or in the hospitality industry. You have a great way of bringing people together with your outgoing personality, and then the sensible and pragmatic skills to bring whatever the goal is to fruition.

Right now, Venus is in Cancer, and that opposes your Moon. So if things seem to be a bit crazy in your social or love life right now, it's only for a month or two. It will pass. I see you being successful. Best Regards.

Anna Sidorova from Russia on May 27, 2018:

Capricorn Moon, Leo Sun, Gemini Ascendent. Feeling a little merry-go -round in my life.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 26, 2018:

Both Cancer and Capricorn mean you are mature, serious, reliable, and ambitious. You are very emotional, but you don't show it to others too easily, you want to be sure they are worth your efforts.

Cancers have a love of travel, family, are personable, and usually well liked. You are a kind hearted person. The Capricorn Moon gives you more reserve, but you are steady and won't lose sight of your goals. You are capable of achieving much, Capricorn means you are a planner who wants to reach goals. Cancers is also ambitious, you have a good head for business, or whatever you apply yourself to.

The Virgo Rising also makes you easy to be with, and more talkative than the other signs in your trinity. You are restless and intelligent. You probably have a slight build and care deeply about your health. You worry too much!

I like the combination. I think people are attracted to you. You make them feel secure and they like your trustworthiness. Take care.

Neem yazzie on May 26, 2018:

Sun: cancer

Moon: Capricorn

Rising: virgo

.... im struggling to figure out myself

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 24, 2018:

Well, your Sun and Moon in Taurus go well with his Capricorn Moon, both Earth signs, sensible, reliable. The Sun and Mercury in Scorpio opposes your Taurus influences, but that's not BAD, it's challenging. Your Mercury in Gemini means you are intelligent, so are interesting. He's sexy with with Sun and Mercury there. But so are you, in a more earthy, sensual way. You want the same things, but have different views on how to get there. Venus in Sag is a freedom loving one, so he may be wary of settling down. But you have Mars in Sag, the way you physically act, so you are an outdoor lover who likes to keep busy. Sometimes alone.His Mars in Aries means he likes to do new things, so that works.

I can't see why this isn't working, the planets are pretty compatible. Does he work a lot of hours? The Capricorn Moon means he wants security, and maybe he feels he doesn't have it right now, so isn't ready to commit. A Sun Scorpio with a Capricorn Moon had particular ideas about what he wants in a partner. That may not mean he doesn't want you, but can mean he isn't ready to move in or get more serious right now.. I am not sure why he disappears, but that is another sign he just isn't ready to take the next step.

I would't count him out. But don't wait too long either, especially if someone else comes along. An astrology chart has a lot of info in it, and I don't have info to cast a whole one, and can't here. I feel like there is potential, keep me posted. Good Luck, Jean

happy123life on March 24, 2018:

Your description on Moon in cap is right. My BF has sun & mer in scorpio , moon in cap, venus in sag, mars in aries. I thought we would match, I am sun & moon in Taurus, mer in gemini, venus in aries and mars in sag. But he is quite selfish about his needs, says busy all the time and disappear on me often. I am sad that way he takes me for granted, he is actually a nice person inside.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 18, 2018:


Sorry, this comment didn't show where I usually get them. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, a stern and unforgiving planet. Those of us who have the sun or moon there are prone to depression periods, but can usually weather them. Try to do something that calms you or get out of the house when you feel this way. I don't like hearing you hate your life. You have Free Will and can possibly change some of it. Good luck to you.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 17, 2018:

I answered your email to help you try to figure out how to get to me on that site. Use my real email now, don't try here. I often only check this once a week and I want to get your answers :).

MizuMizu on March 17, 2018:

I have a Capricorn moon and I hate my life.

However I'm happy to admit that I hate my life because at least I'm telling the fucking truth.

Dani on March 17, 2018:

NY. I responded to your email, having issues with something. It's in the email.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 16, 2018:

I got it. I wrote back. Check your mail. Where are you? It's 2:45 AM here, lol.

Dani on March 16, 2018:

I sent you an email.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 15, 2018:


I'm so sorry you are hurting right now. Normally Capricorns are moody and do change their minds, but I think he's done this before, and been hard to reach, yes? I wouldn't want to hold onto someone who hurt me. My first love was a Capricorn Sun guy. He always left me and came back. I was younger than him, and was only 15, so that didn't help. But I learned from our four year on/mostly off relationship. If someone leaves you once, and you can't work out the issues, they will leave you again. It's a hard and fast rule for me. And I found someone else who I was with for 39 yrs. You will too.

We could do a tarot reading if you contact me at the web address in my profile. They won't allow links, but you can type it in the browser. You deserve better. Go shopping or out with a friend and treat yourself to something nice. A good man should LOVE some more attention! Take care of yourself. Love, Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 02, 2018:

Wow, we have a lot in common! I have a Scorpio Ascendant, and the Saturn (Capricorn's ruler) is in my 1st house, there are 12 of them. So that's the house that rules appearance. But it's still a Capricorn influence like yours which causes scoliosis, because it rules the bones. I had my 1st surgery or fusion at 6, but it wasn't the rod, it was a bone fusion, so I have somebody else's bone in me. I've had a pretty good life, I was married for 34 yrs. before my husband passed, and we had a great son together. I have back spasms and always had poor attendance at work, or at least they thought I did. At times I was only out one day a month. I finally got on disability when my husband passed, so have more time to write!

I wore a body cast after the first surgery, and then something called a Milwaukee brace. It an awful leather and steel thing, ugly as hell. I began that at 10, and refused to wear it to High School. But I was more active then and got really thin, so the curve didn't get worse until lately, but I'm 62. I made friends after I stopped wearing the brace in a nearby town, because I was sick of being called "the girl in the brace" I had good friends, but a lot of them just felt sorry for me, so I understand the self conscious part. It's a tough experience. I had good parents, but they thought the physical pain was worse, but as you know, the emotional pain is. I think I still have trust issues, and even now I get abnormally scared of doctors.

Since Cancer rules Motherhood and Capricorn is opposite that, that's why Capricorn Moons have problem Moms. I loved her, but she had a lot of habits I didn't like and was so over protective of me, when you know we both had to be stronger than people our age, right?

I am big on organizing too, it's a Capricorn trait, and am a bit compulsive. Saturn makes us get a little depressed, but there are probably better influences in your chart that help pull you out. I am a big planner too and like to set goals, and usually stay with them. Its also a cardinal sign of leadership, that's why we can work without supervision or be the supervisors.

I learned to do better with it as I got older. I was always a nonconformist anyway, and once I got out of the brace most of the people didn't recall me from before as I went on with life. I have big scars on my back that didn't heal well, so sometimes people stare. Once I was in a Mommy and Me swim class when my son was 3, and others acted like I needed their help, which I didn't. I get painful spasms in the lower back, but also have long periods where I feel OK. Now that my friends are older and getting illnesses, they are shocked, but I already learned to live with limitations for a long time, so it's easier now. It's great to find you, keep in touch Take care.

Amyre on February 25, 2018:

Omg! This is literally my whole life. I have a 23 degree capricorn moon and I was also born with scoliosis. I had to have rod surgery for it when I was 12, til this day it is something that I'm extremely self conscious about. Im 25 now and I feel like Ive been ahead of my time and mature for my age since I was a child. I was literally a teenager that had to deal with alot of adult emotions concerning my parents (specifically my mom). Sometimes I feel that my progress is so slow and people dont understand me (Including my love interest). Also Depression kicks in every now and again, luckily I never let myself stay down for too long and Im back at setting a specific goal. I also noticed that Im at my happiest when I'm working, I love cleaning and organizing anything (somewhat OCD). I also prefer working laid back shifts and overnight jobs where I can work alone with little to no supervision. This article really helped me understand myself so much better. Please comment back and let me know how are you dealing with this placement now. Thanks so much for this !

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 17, 2018:

Hi Elena,

The Aries Sun and Aquarius Sun work well. You like to do new things and are the one who initiates activities, but he's smart and interesting and a good sport, so that's good. He is strongly his own person and stubborn, but also very idealistic.

Capricorn Moon people hide their emotions, or at least express them mostly in private. The fact he spends time with you at all means he cares. Capricorn and it's planet ruler, Saturn, rule time, so it's important to him and he doesn't waste it. He is romantic, more than you think, and Earth signs are very sensual. So he may seem contradictory, Aquarius Sun is a person who shocks and tries all kinds of things, and and Capricorn seems more cool and reserved. He's a family person deep down. He also may need you to reach out first.

You are very emotional with that Scorpio Moon, and sexy too. He likes that. You bring him out of that Capricorn reserve. You are very intense, but can also keep a secret and don't wear your heart on your sleeve. Both Aries and Capricorn are leadership signs, you are both achievers. I think this has potential. I have Capricorn Moon Emotions and Scorpio Moon Emotions on, and also articles about your sun signs. Good Luck.

Elena Mahmood on February 16, 2018:

Any advice for me and my Cap Moon Man? I'm a Scorpio Moon but Aries Sun and he's got an Aquarius Sun. He's 23 and I'm 21.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 04, 2018:

If you already know he isn't willing to put in the necessary work to save this relationship, why do you want to stay with him? It's clear he is immature and irresponsible.

Libra and Scorpio Suns are compatible, they are signs next to each other, which usually works. Capricorn Moon people keep their emotions private, but can express them, and be sensual. Moon in Gemini people are more lighthearted in love, and like to talk more and discuss a relationship. He may have more Gemini planets, they are the top liars. Since he hurts you and is depressive, I would dump him. This isn't even an astrology question, he isn't into this relationship if he's acting like such a jerk. Move on and be happy.

Scorp_82 on January 23, 2018:

Any ideas on how I can get along better with a Moon in Cap man??

He is a Libra with Moon in Cap and I am a Scorpio with Moon in Gemini.

We seem to fight alot and he's distant and do not converse much with me. He's very moody and I react to that and then fights start. He also lies ALOT and doesn't seem to have empathy that he's hurt me deeply. He now refuses to try and keeps on saying that we don't get along. He also gets depressive and breaks down easily and goes into the whole "woe is me" situation.

Any tips on how I can get along better with him since I know he wouldn't want to put in the same effort as I do.

When my husband and I got engaged, he bought me four new tires for my car! I have the Capricorn Moon, but he knew it was a practical gift I needed at the time (we lived two hours away from each other)! So happy you and your fiance and you are happy and that old Capricorn vibe works for you!

Jackie on January 10, 2018:

I think this also applies to Moon-Saturn people like myself. I'm not comfortable with romantic grand gestures and mu by default when I love someone, I show it in a practical way by offering to help them so to make things easier for them and I appreciate it very much for any guy especially that "fatherly vibe". Sadly a lot of people don't appreciate this kind of love gesture because majority are into PDA's or other superficial kind of displays they see in television or movies. I was raised by Capricorn Moon parents. All the guys I'd been with have either Moon in Capricorn or fellow Moon-Saturn. My fiance is a Capricorn and a fellow Moon-Saturnian with his Moon in late Taurus square Saturn in early Virgo. This is spot on for him & I love it!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

OK, what you heard is false, they are both earth signs, which will make you sensible and serious, so that's all the damage it can do, lol. Sun in Virgo people are intelligent and interested in many subjects. They are normally lively and fun, get bored and restless. I have lots of Virgo friends, being Cancer and my Moon is in Capricorn. That moon means we keep our emotions private and hold them in too much, telling only those closest to us. But lately I notice I don't even admit some deeply emotional stuff to myself. Your Sag Ascendant means you are probably tall and athletic. You like the outdoors and this is also a fire sign, making you outgoing and fun. I like the combo. I have articles on Sun and Moon signs and also ascendants on if you check it out. Take care, Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on December 28, 2017:

I can't do much here without casting a whole astrology chart or doing a tarot reading. If you want, write me at as it will be more private and give me the date and info again, OK? Hang in there. Jean

Hi Jean, my ascendant is Sagittarius, sun sign in Virgo, and moon sign is Capricorn. Could you brief me about this combination? I have read that Virgo sun and Cappy moon are a difficult combination. Does it mean unfavorable?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on October 02, 2017:

Dear Mishy,

I understand you don't really get what you are asking from me here. When a person copies a big list of planets, asteroids, and nodes, I can't possibly interpret all this. Even if I cast a horoscope for you, it takes 10-12 hours of my time, and I charge $100.00. And I don't even have time for asteroids and nodes besides that, it's hours more. Either you have to buy a chart from the site where you got this info, or visit me at I understand you don't get the years and money it took in seminars, or the books I had to buy, to be able to know what I know. I just can't find time for so many who write and want 15 hours of work and my time for free. Sorry. Jean

Mishy on September 28, 2017:

I'd like to learn more about myself. I've looked into my chart a lot and would love to be surprised by more information i might not know about yet. If you have the time i would really appreciate it!

I can cast an astrology chart, but to do that and interpret it takes about 12 hours or so. If you are interested, go to my site at I understand you don't get how much work this entails. If I get a small question about a Venus or Sun sign, I can answer that here. But I charge $100.00 to cast an astrology chart.

Can you tell me my horoscope

I was born at 11pm in Italy


Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on August 05, 2017:

Hi Nadine,

Yes, you are right. I have a Capricorn Moon and Scorpio Rising, and most people view me as serious and reliable. My Cancer sun livens me up, and I have two planets in Gemini, so I can go from sociable to not answering the phone for days. The Scorpio is very strong, especially for you because Pluto is it's planet. I have a Venus in Scorpio piece on Hubpages. Glad you enjoyed them. Jean

Nadine on August 04, 2017:

A lot comments about Capricorn and Scorpio :D.

Being a woman and having a Capricorn Moon and a Scorpio Venus I can totally relate to that. I feel like both signs are very compatible, but give you kind of a double-seriousness especially when it comes to relationships. But I feel like the Scorpio energy in my birth chart is very strong (Venus, Lilith & Pluto in Scorpio).

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on July 27, 2017:


I would have to cast a whole horoscope to interpret this. You can check my website at for details. It's ten hours of work to interpret what you gave me here, and I can't do that for free. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 15, 2017:

Well, your trinity is all in fixed signs, so you are stubborn and like to get your own way. Let's look at his planets in signs. Sun, Mercury and Venus in Taurus, Taurus is a fixed sign. With his Venus there he should be very sensual and like to be close. Mercury means he doesn't change his mind, so that's part of the "emotionless" vibe you are getting. But Taurus Suns are ruled by Venus and usually are affectionate. OK the Moon in Capricorn (and planets in Taurus) means he needs security, it's the most important thing to him. Do you make him feel insecure (Not that it's your fault)? Your Scorpio Sun is Opposite all his Taurus planets, so that's a big issue. So are your Leo Moon and Aquarius ascendant. I think you are a lot more outgoing and demonstrative than him. Capricorn moon's don't like public displays of emotion, but privately are sexy, as are Taureans. His Mars in Scorpio and Pluto are also fixed signs. I think he's just so set in his ways that it's pushing you away. Is he very serious? I think also you like to have a good time and he likes to veg out on the couch and stay home to have sex all the time. That's all well and good, I doubt your issues are about sex. But I think he is overwhelmed by you and doesn't know what to do. His emo makeup is more quiet and private than yours is. I am unsure if he can meet your needs to be shown he cares. With your Leo moon, you want him to be demonstrative, and it's not in his nature. I don't think you are doing anything wrong. I think you feel the same about some things, but have your own points of view, and can't meet in the middle. See if it can be worked out, but if it can't, try to move on. I'd like to see you with someone with a lot of planets in Aries and Gemini. More of a free spirit, fun loving, adventurous. Sag would be nice too. I hope it gets better, but don't waste too much time, HE isn't changing. Take care. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on June 14, 2017:

Hey Dani,

I also have the Capricorn moon and Scorpio Ascendant! So even though you are a Gemini social butterfly who can do 10 things at once, the Scorpio ascendant makes you appear more serious than you are. Sometimes people may feel a bit intimidated by you. But your Gemini wit will charm them. A Moon in Capricorn makes you seem reserved, and you are, to some degree. You hang around with a person for a long time before you decide you really want them in your life. It's not that you are being mean, but Capricorn is all about time, and you don't want to waste it on the wrong people or projects, you are too sensible. Both the Scorpio and Capricorn keep you grounded, and people around you rely on your sensible advice and support.

You are intelligent and being Gemini, like to know about many topics. The Scorpio will make you research something which interests you to death! But all in all it's a nice combo, since you are lots of fun, but a loyal friend and loved one. Best Wishes. Jean

Dani on June 13, 2017:

Hey, Jean!

I've been having a read over some of your articles this evening and I'd like to thank you for providing more insight into astrology as a whole!

If you have some free time, I'd be interested to hear a little more about that combination. My birthday is May 31st, 1991.


danielle on June 13, 2017:

Hi Jean,

I'm not sure what to do with my boyfriend anymore. I feel he's an emotionless robot and doesn't even have me on his radar. It's frustrating and I just can't seem to...idk understand what to do or say or anything anymore. I cried this morning out of frustration and I'm not a crier by any means. (Scorp, leo moon, aqua rising). Maybe you're able to give some insight on what's going on in that head of his or how I could feel wanted/cared for? I appreciate it.

Scorpios are very strong and always get what they want. So the Moon in Capricorn is probably the issue. Plus when I know only little bits like this, I don't have the whole picture. But I have a Capricorn Moon too. We crave security, and will work hard to get it. Capricorns often seem older when young, but then seem younger when they are older. They love affection, but not in public, only in private. You keep people at a distance until you decide they are worth your time. I do it too. But it saves problems down the road. Try not to take everything so seriously. Take care, Jean

Jigna on June 01, 2017:

hi my moon sign is Capricorn and sun sign is Scorpio I find difficult to deal with people and emotions also I m 39 but look much more elderly pls can you help me with these doubts

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 26, 2017:

Capricorn Moon people are shy and reserved. But even so, they are leaders and are very hardworking and sensible. A Leo Sun sign is very outgoing and likes to "shine." You are popular and like to go out a lot, and have a lot of friends. I don't know Indian Astrology, so that's the best I can do.

DIPALI ACHARYA on May 26, 2017:

my moon shine is capricorn and sun sign is leo birth date is 2nd august 1993.i am born under shravana nakshatra...can you tell somehing about me?

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 25, 2017:

It's a nice combination of planets. Sun in Pisces means you are a dreamer, artistic, creative. Don't forget Einstein was Pisces, art has a relationship with math. You are kind to all people, a good story teller. A Capricorn Moon makes you reliable and sensible. You are reserved and cautious before you involve yourself with anything. But the Venus in Aries means you do have a passionate attitude in love, because that Capricorn Moon means although romantic, you don't show it in public. Mercury in Pisces means it's hard for you to make up your mind. It's sort of attached to your emotions. But the Capricorn Moon helps that too. Jupiter in Gemini makes you spontaneous, and brings abundance to your communication and tech skills. Uranus is the home of Aries, so you are an individualist and proud of it Neptune in Aquarius once again brings out telepathy, love of art and skills in any you want to try, and it will not be boring! Pluto brings the most changes, and Sag rules travel, education and philosophy, also law. So you may move in your life to a new country to pursue any of these topics. Saturn is the karmic, or teacher planet. It stabilizes us. Taurus doesn't like change, so you may go through lessons that force you to go through changes, though they will teach you a lot, don't be afraid. Mars is the action planet, and in Sag you like outdoor activities and intellectual ones.I can't get into the Nodes here, it would take too long. But I think it's a successful list of planets in signs. Best Wishes. Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2017:

NO problem. MY Moonsign in Scorpio piece is on Exemplore,com. It may answer more of your questions. Good luck.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2017:

You will become in the public eye, and since it's a Moon in Scorpio, probably in a good way. You are emotional but also sensible enough to think through your goals. I see you in a field helping others. Go for it! Jean

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2017:

HI Samanta,

WEll, we have the same trinity, Cancer, Scorpio and Capricorn! The rising sign is how others see you, so with Capricorn, you come off as reserved, but reliable and practical. You may seem a little stiff until somebody really gets to know you. But Capricorns act younger as they get older, and relax more. Sun in Cancer makes you compassionate and friendly, and in the 6th house, you work hard and probably would be happy in a field that cares for animals, or volunteers for one. That Moon in Scorpio is sexy and strong, being in the 10th house you have great leadership skills. You are ambitious and will do well in whatever it is you decide to do. Best wishes.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on May 21, 2017:

Hello Nadia,

The fire sign Leo sun gives you a warm and fiery temperament. You are fun to be with. The Capricorn Moon is your inner, emotional self, that only those who know you best understand. It's a sign that makes you seem reserved. This Earth sign means you are reliable and practical. You care deeply, but show it in private, not in public. So you will be attracted to fire or air sign. I say air because fire needs air to burn. Also, opposite signs attract, so with that Capricorn Moon, a person with a nice water sign moon would be a good match for you. Most of my Sun and Moon pieces are on Exemplore, but I have a lot of Venus (love life) and Mercury (how you think) on the HP site yet, and you may find them helpful. Good luck to you.

Hi Sarah,

You seem like an easy going party girl with lots of interests. But you are much deeper and need security and closeness a lot more than you let others see. You are very intelligent and the Capricorn moon can make you seem a little more reserved than you are--sort of a contradiction, but true. Best wishes.

Sarah on May 13, 2017:

My sun in Gemini and my moon is in Capricorn! My birthday is May 21, 1992 !

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 31, 2017:

HI Jayla, water and earth signs are a great combination. Pisces people care about everyone and accept them for who they are. You would like to work in a field where you can help others. You are also very creative, do you paint or write? Think about your interests, you may be able to make one into a business you love, with the help of Scorpio rising and a Capricorn moon. I also have Scorpio rising and a Capricorn moon! Scorpio rising makes you appear pleasant but sort of intimidating to others. I find tht especially with other women, it's a sign ruled by Pluto, and it's powerful, and you project that.. But it's a good Moon for romance and relationships, as well as for running your own business. I have made a business of Astrology and the tarot, and owe it to HP, where I first began writing about what I knew for years. Scorpio rising is sexy to men. You probably have a lot of male friends. The Capricorn moon means how you are emotionally, and it takes you time to decide if someone is worth your time. I don't mean you are snobby, or discriminating, but with this sign and the psychic ability Scorpio gives you, you will decide right away if you meet someone who is a keeper. You are practical, emotional, reliable, and probably close to family. It's really a lovely combination of the Trinity. Good luck to you. Jean

I am pisceas sun scorpio rising and Capricorn moon....Can I get an insight

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on March 05, 2017:

HI Renae,

This is your trinity, sun, moon and ascendant? Libras love to do anything in partnerships, whether it's a relationship or business partnership. You are creative and like people, would be good in the hospitality industry. The Capricorn moon is a cardinal leadership sign like Libra. The Moon is about your emotions, so you keep a lot of them hidden, or prefer to express them privately. You are sensible and reliable. The Sag lightens up your personality and helps you plan for the future, like Capricorn. But in a more fun way. You like travel and philosophy.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 05, 2017:

Hi LIne,

I like the Taurus sun with the Capricorn Sun, you have a lot in common and look at life a lot the same way. With Cancer Rising you may seem like a wallflower compared to an Aries Rising, but that's not bad, if we have too much in common it gets boring. You seem nurturing, kind, pleasant and you listen. Aries rising is the life of the party, loves to try new things, but is passionate and so can be very romantic and proud to show you off to people. Two Moons in Capricorn means you are both practical, reliable people who like to plan ahead. You both have deep emotions, but don't show them, especially in pubic. But still waters run deep. Taurus is sexy and so is Capricorn, so I think between the two of you this can work well. Make sure the lines of communication are open, trust, and get into the bedroom more. Sometimes action is better than talk! Have fun. You'll be fine.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 05, 2017:

HI Mo!

I have Scorpio Rising too. It gives you a serious demeanor, and people tell me I seem like I don't want to be bothered sometimes! Not true, but I am a serious person. When you are interested in a topic, you will research it to death! You are sexy and sensual. If your Sun is in 0 degrees of Cap, then it's not on a cusp, it's in Capricorn. The cusps are what divides the houses. It's just the first degree of Capricorn, so you still may exhibit a few Aquarius traits. You are practical and reliable, a loyal friends and a traditional person, or at least telling by your Trinity. Time is important to you, and you set goals. The Moon in Cap I have too! Many astrologers say that's a cold moon, as it rules emotions. But that's not true. You want to take your time and see if you can trust a person before you get involved too deeply. You are sensual, but aren't going to show that in public, privately that's a different thing altogether. You have strong emotions but need to express them more (or at least to whoever is important. I hope that helps.

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 05, 2017:

Hi Zoe,

I have a Cancer Sun and Capricorn Moon too! So we seem outgoing and have a whimsical side. But the Cap moon makes us practical and serious, sometimes more serious than we are. We are planners and like to plan ahead. OMG I have Mercury and Venus in Gemini too! Mercury is how you think, so you are intelligent and interested in all kinds of subjects. You like to be fair, so much that you drive yourself crazy trying to decide which way to go. Venus in Gemini can be fickle, or mean you will have two great loves in your life. You like a busy active social life, though won't neglect important things to go out, the Cancer and Capricorn won't let you. They also will make you faithful if you settle down, when Venus in Gemini would usually not do that. Capricorn Jupiter/ Jupiter is about discovering and doing new things, But the Capricorn likes traditional ways, so you feel some conflict about that. Capricorn is about time, and you don't like to waste it. Jupiter wants you to do things in a big way, Capricorn wants the tried and true way. The Saturn in Aries means you can do old things and reshape them into things or ways that seem new again. Libra rising means you seem very pleasant when people meet you. The scale is the symbol of Libra, so you weigh and balance everything. You also need "time out" from life's pressures once in while. I can't get into the houses here. If you go to Cafe Astrology it's a site I think is one of the best, and I think you can read up on the meaning of what a planet in the house means. Best Regards!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on February 05, 2017:

Hi Nikki--

Well, I don't know your trinity but we can discuss his. OK. I was married to a Taurus man and they are the kindest, most devoted guys you can find. They like women, but not in a skirt chasing way, they truly like them and he will try hard to understand you. Better yet, he will love you even when you are hard to understand. The Sag rising makes him SEEM a little like a know it all, and he may be interested in religions and travel to other countries. This is a fire sign, so livens up Taurus a little. The Moon in Gemini means his emotions are changeable, and that can be confusing for you. But Sag rising is very truthful. Geminis can tell the occasional lie, but the Sag Rising sort of cancels that out. So he's basically a more outgoing Taurus thanusual. He doesn't seem really complicated, I'm not getting any red flags. I have hubs on Exemlore about Moonsigns and Rising signs, and my Sun in Taurus is on HP yet, if you want more info. Best wishes.

Line on February 05, 2017:

Hi Jean! I am a Taurus Sun (10˚), Cancer Rising (6˚) with a Moon in Capricorn (12˚). I met a Capricorn Sun (8˚), Aries Rising (18˚) with a Moon in Capricorn (21˚) and I am really wondering if this would work out. And you are right about the relationship with the mother (mine is a Cancer). The manipulation drives me nuts so I try to stay away as much as I can. Thanks :-)

Mo on February 04, 2017:

Hi Jean!

Super interesting article, my Rising is in scorpio (19 Degrees), My sun is on the cusp of Capricorn & Sag (0 Degrees Cap) and my moon is in Capricorn (6 Degrees)

I find it very tough sometimes, do you have any advice by chance? I attempt to be the higher version of myself but I need to learn how to use the positive traits of these characteristics.

Thanks so much!

Jean Bakula (author) from New Jersey on January 31, 2017:

Hi Nikki,

Being a Sun sign Aries makes you independent, and you are often the one to start a new project to lead, or to come up with unique ideas. You are outgoing. You can have a temper, but get over it fast. You are probably well liked and enjoy an active life. Aries is a Fire Sign, just like Leo, your Moon. The moon is about your inner life and emotions. A Leo moon means you are generous and also that you crave a lot of attention. In a relationship, you need lots of assurance you are loved. But you are very loving yourself. The rising sign is how others see you, and as Virgo is the sign, you seem more laid back than you are until people get to know you. You care about good health and diet, and are outdoorsy. You are practical and sensible, and are a friend who can be counted on. Earth signs think about things more before they do them, while Fire signs just do it! All in all, it's a nice combination. I think the Virgo grounds you, but you like to try new things and have fun too. Best wishes.
