Capricorn Moon Sign Emotions
Capricorn the Mountain Goat
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 in Private
Takes Care of Business/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.

I am Leo sun and Leo rising with a Capricorn moon. Is my Capricorn Moon the reason I am less of a 'life- of- the- party ' attention seeker?
Yes, that's part of the reason. Capricorn Moon people have strong emotions but are reserved and don't show them so much unless it's someone they really love or know well. But it is a leadership sign, so I don't think Capricorn will keep you in seclusion for long. I think there must be planets in Cancer in your chart, as every planet is in a zodiac sign, and you have Leo Sun and Rising. That would put Cancer in your 12th house, or secrets and seclusion, and based on knowing what you have told me, I think that's what would make you want to need quiet time alone, not so much a Capricorn Moon. You can look on astrology sites and find what signs all your planets are in, but the houses matter as well, and the aspects all your planets make to each other. But, yes, the Capricorn Moon makes you a more serious and ambitious Leo.
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?
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.
I’m a Virgo Sun, Capricorn moon and that rising. Any advice on bettering myself?
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.
What does my astrological sign combination Pisces sun, Capricorn moon, and Aries rising mean? How do my signs contribute to my overall character?
The Pisces Sun is the dreamy, psychic, and artistic part of you. You are sympathetic to others and will go out of your way to help them. Pisces can be retiring, so it's good to have the Capricorn and Aries in you, these are both cardinal leadership signs. Capricorn moon rules your emotions. You are an emotional person, but don't like to show it unless in private or with those you trust. Security is important to you, especially in relationships, or in whatever the house rules where the Moon is in your Natal Birth Chart. Aries Rising is the mask or facade you show others who first meet you. You seem outgoing and fun. You like to be first and often have original ideas, or are the leader of your group of friends, or on that project at work. You want a lot of attention in some ways, because of the Aries in you, yet there is conflict, because Capricorn hates surprises.
I think your overall character is good. Capricorn and Pisces are both good-hearted people who will listen and if not stay grounded, at least understand where others are coming from. Aries will always make you competitive, but be sure not to grasp for what's not yours!
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?
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.Helpful 3
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?
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 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?
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.
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?
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.Helpful 7
I am Aquarius/Pisces, Scorpio rising, Capricorn moon, Capricorn venus. Am I a mess?
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 Exemplore.com, 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.Helpful 5
I am a Gemini Sun, Capricorn Moon, with a Cancer Rising. What does my astrological sign makeup say about me?
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.Helpful 4
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?
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.Helpful 3
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?
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!
I am a Gemini rising, Capricorn sun, and Capricorn moon, could you give some insight into my astrological signs?
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.
I am a Scorpio sun, Capricorn moon and a Leo rising. What does that say about me as a person?
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.
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?
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.
Concerning zodiac signs, does the Descendant sign give information about our ancestors? Which sign gives information about our ancestors or our parents?
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.
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?
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.
What is the problem with having the same Moon sign and Descendant sign, as my Moon sign and Descendant sign is Capricorn?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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
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?
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.
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?
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.
I am Capricorn Sun, Capricorn Moon with a Cancer rising. What does it mean?
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. https://hubpages.com/astrology/Capricorn-Moon-Care...
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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 Letterpile.com and Exemplore.com 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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
I'm a Pisces sun and Capricorn moon. What is the best career suited for me?
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.
I am an Aquarius Sun, Capricorn moon, and Taurus rising. What should I look for in a partner?
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.
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?
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
I am a Gemini sun, Capricorn moon with a Aries rising, what does all this mean?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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!
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?
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.
I am a Taurus sun, Capricorn moon, Scorpio rising, and I am a mess. I feel lost. Why is this?
I don't know. It's a nice trinity, earth and water are compatible elements. The Taurus sun means you are a peaceful person who is generally likable. You love nature or outdoor activities, good food, good wine, nice furniture. You enjoy the best in life, don't like a lot of change, and want security.
Capricorn Moon rules your emotions. I have one too. You are emotional and thoughtful, though you don't wear that on your sleeve. You express these things more privately, and in love, you don't like public displays of emotions. But you are lovable and sensual; don't forget Taurus is ruled by Venus too. Capricorn means you are looking for a long-term commitment, and if there is someone who isn't willing to do that, it may be the cause of your unhappiness. Capricorn is a leadership sign, and you use action to help your friends and solve many of your problems. You are reliable and sensible. If you have been in a job for a long time and are not getting anywhere, that would bother you and make you unhappy. You want to progress.
Scorpio rising is the facade you show the world. It's a bit sphinx-like, you block others so they can't read you as easily as you can read them. You are psychic and studious. Both Capricorn and Scorpio make you ambitious, though Taurus people don't like to work hard. But they will if it's for what they want. The Scorpio in you means you are opinionated and Taurus and Scorpio oppose each other. If it's not a big conflict, you may not be sure how to approach some things to get started, but it's not a bad aspect.
I don't know what's going on in your life that's making you feel lost. I use Astrology as a means of understanding personalities. It's not an answer to all everyday problems, although it can affect them. We could do a tarot reading to see where you are getting stuck. I am at firstname.lastname@example.org. Knowing the trinity of your astrology profile is a good start, it's how I begin interpretation. But it's a small part of it. I hope things get better for you. Take care, Jean
I am a Taurus sun, Capricorn moon, and Aquarius rising. I seemed to have come to a stopping point in my life at 60 years of age due to an escalation in issues with a rare genetic disease that I have suffered with all my life. I have always been a hard worker, very generous, active, and creative. Now I am wallowing in pain and depression. How do I kick start my life again?
I'm sorry you are suffering right now and wish the best for you. This is actually a little different, though I will interpret the Trinity.
Saturn takes 30 years to go through all the planets, so when we are ages 27-30, 57-60, or 90+, we go through something called a Saturn Return. Saturn is the karmic teacher, and it's here to teach us lessons, normally ones we don't really like, or painful ones. I learned they can be good lessons, too, but in all my years find they are mostly hard.
So I think what's happening is that you are at the end of your 2nd Saturn return, and this is what it's teaching you to deal with, for reasons that can still be positive. I have an article on Saturn Returns: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Astrological-Saturn...
But with your Taurus Sun, you are a kind and gentle person who never says no when it comes to helping others. You love the outdoors and are very creative. Also a bit stubborn, but not in an annoying way. You just gently don't do what you don't want to do. The Capricorn Moon is about your emotions, and you hold them in a little bit, or don't show them much unless it's privately. But they are strong emotions. You are hardworking and ambitious, and I can see you have dealt well with responsibility. This will help you get through this rough patch; you are strong. Taurus and Capricorn both are strong family loving signs and you are devoted, and family will help you too. Aquarius Rising means you seem more outgoing and liberal when people don't know you, and later they see you are so family and work oriented. But this helps your creativity. Aquarius and Taurus are fixed signs, and so that tenacity will be a big aid in helping you through the escalation of this disease. Even the strongest of us get depressed when faced with such a tough thing, but if it can escalate, it can go into remission too, and that stubborn part of you can beat it back.
I don't know how this affects you physically, but try meditation if you can. It helps you to learn to control your thoughts, and that's part of any battle. It takes practice and there are many kinds of meditation, but religion doesn't matter in most types. It can clear your mind and make you feel more in control--mind over matter, right? Meditation is a way to open any doors because our minds are so powerful. You can even get an app for your phone for free called Buddhify; it has short, guided meditations other people read and you just listen to while blocking your thoughts. I prefer quiet meditations, but it can give you the basic idea.
I hope this helps; know suffering for so long has to have made you strong. That strength is still there; it's just waiting to come back. Also, if you feel up to any of your creative activities or are able to start a new one to keep your mind off how you feel, that could help too. I wish you the very best.
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?
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.
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?
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.
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?
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.
I’m a Sagittarius Sun, Capricorn Moon and my Rising is Leo. So basically I’m responsible, but at times I can be really irresponsible. Mainly because of my nature to do things on impulse. With Sagittarius not caring what they look like, Capricorn having a practical approach to it, and Leo being a queen, so it's crazy. I never know what I want and that doesn’t have just to do with my appearance. What do I do?
I can't tell from this info why you are impulsive. Sag likes freedom, but is generous and intelligent, and not inclined to be impulsive. As I constantly preach if anyone reads some of my other answers, just knowing your trinity is a very small portion of an astrology chart and every planet is in a zodiac sign, one of 12 houses all with meanings about serious areas of your life, and the distance between all the planets matter. You may have a Uranus aspect which causes you to be impulsive or another planet in Aries or Aquarius. And I don't understand how your appearance comes into why you would make impulsive changes. I'm sorry, astrology is a lot more complicated than many who ask these questions seem to understand, and I can't answer this question based on a trinity with no impulsive zodiac signs.
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?
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 jeanbakula.wordpress..com. Here are the links, and you will have a better understanding of yourself if you read all this:
https://hubpages.com/astrology/Gemini-Gossipy-Glib... That was for your Gemini Sun. This will explain your Capricorn Moon: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Capricorn-Moon-Care... Mercury is the way you think, in Gemini it works like this: https://hubpages.com/creative-writing/Mercury-in-G... Venus rules your romantic and social life: https://hubpages.com/creative-writing/Venus-in-Gem... Here's an article I wrote about rising signs: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Astrological-Ascend...
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.
My husband who is a Virgo ascendant male hides and lies to me. He is secretive. Is he cheating?
Virgo is not a sign known for cheating, but that's all I have to go on. They aren't particularly secretive either. Does he have some Scorpio or Cancer in him? Those signs are secretive. I don't know how long you have been married, or what he is hiding, but you think he is cheating on you. I believe this is unacceptable in marriage, but we aren't sure this is the problem. I would just come out and ask him. It won't be easy, but then you will have to decide if you want to stay with him or can trust him again. He could be hiding something else too. Are you having money issues or is he having problems with a job? This doesn't mean he is definitely cheating, he could be hiding something to protect you. So why don't you get this out into the open and talk about it? It may not be as bad as you think. Sometimes things are worse in our imaginations. I hope it's something you can work out.
I’m an Aries sun, Capricorn moon and a Virgo rising. I feel like there’s a constant battle in my head. Are my signs too opposing?
No, there isn't anything opposing here. Of course, this is not a whole Natal Birth chart, so what I am seeing is a tiny portion of who you are. I don't know what houses any of these signs are in, or what aspects the other planets make to each other. The Aries and Capricorn are what is called a square in astrology, so it's a challenging aspect, but not necessarily a bad one. I think you are ambitious and have specific goals you want to achieve. Both signs are cardinal signs of leadership, so you do have that ability. Virgo rising is how others see you, and Virgo is a little more retiring than the other two signs. But you still can be a good communicator, who takes care of your health. Virgos are very chatty, but like to work behind the scenes. So I think that's what is stopping you from your natural tendency to lead and take charge. Capricorn Moons don't like to express themselves a lot in public, but are inclined to climb the social ladder. So speak your Virgo truth, and don't hide in the background.
I am a Leo sun with a Capricorn Moon. I know I am vulnerable to my insecurities, but I try to keep them in check by being aware of them. Lately, I’ve been trying to find a way to block these depressing triggers that appear to be apart of my daily life. Do you think there is any hope for me to move past my insecurities and achieve my goals?
Yes, I do. Your Leo Sun is one way to find confidence. Leos are normally generous, gracious, and well liked. It's a fixed sign so that you can be persistent. You need to think positively, a Leo trait, each time you feel those Capricorn insecurities coming back. Capricorn is also a cardinal sign, ruling the 10th house of the astrology wheel. This house represents career and other activities we engage in which are noticed by the public. Try to bury yourself in your work or what hobbies are visible to others when you feel insecure, do what you know you are good at, and that will help you to build yourself up. Plus Capricorns are very serious about achieving goals, even though, or maybe because, sometimes what we hope for, we fear at the same time. What if we do achieve that goal, and find we aren't good at it? In the tarot, the Hopes and Fears position is the same one, shared. I think you have what it takes to turn that negative side of Capricorn around. Work at what you excel in, and keep that sunny, Leo attitude.
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?
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.
I am a Capricorn sun, Capricorn moon, and Leo rising. Nowadays I feel like I'm losing myself. Can you give me some ideas to get my life in order?
You aren't the only Capricorn Sun or Moon to ask me about this lately. Saturn rules Capricorn. Saturn is in Capricorn right now; it takes 30 years to travel around the zodiac through all twelve signs. It's also the karmic planet, so it may be teaching you lessons you don't want to learn. Depending on your age, you could be experiencing a Saturn return. I am going to give you a link because it's more complicated than I can explain here, but you can decide if that's what it is: https://hubpages.com/astrology/Astrological-Saturn...
A Saturn return can be very hard, as they say, "Karma's a bitch." The Sun rules who you are and the Moon represents your emotions. You are a reserved and reliable person, good at business, trustworthy, you have leadership qualities, but you feel squashed. The same is happening with your emotions. You have trouble expressing them to start with, and now Saturn could be sitting conjunct or near your Moon. This poses a problem with communication. Things are happening that will change your routine in big ways, and also your outlook on life. I don't have a chart, so I can't see what degrees your Capricorn planets are in, but Saturn will pass them by, slowly, in a year or two. Hang in there. What you learn will make you wiser. Try meditation or exercise. Life won't be as tidy as you like it. You will get through it, we all do.
