Moon in Capricorn...
Determined and quietly aggressive,
the Capricorn moon wants to achieve
and make their mark on the world.
Moon in Capricorn is as serious as they are playful. Depending on the day or the situation, they can either be a heavy, hardworking miser or a loose, pleasure seeker. But they always live within the bounds of their own rules, never letting things get too out of hand. Their need for security and success keeps them grounded, and they know that certain behaviors are self-defeating and will cause them to lose the security they deeply need.
From childhood, Capricorn moons have an innate understanding of the physical challenges of the world. The need to make money, work hard and build security weigh on them from a young age. It's a relentless pressure that isn't felt as powerfully by any other sign. Many Capricorn moons try to tackle these pressures, head on, early in their lives. By dealing with them immediately and directly, the pressure is alleviated. Others try to deny them and push them aside. They often lose themselves in vices to cloud their minds and distract themselves, but they live with the constant pressure that the vices can only subdue rather than eliminate. Depression is common for these people because they aren't satisfying their moon's needs.
It simply isn't easy to be a Capricorn moon. The expectations that the sign of Capricorn puts on the sensitive nature of the moon can be heavy and can easily crush a person's spirit. There is a powerful, emotional drive to achieve and if it is stifled by other people or circumstances, the Capricorn moon suffers emotional pain.
Even Capricorn moons who are born into situations where financial support is always provided to them, regardless of their personal achievement, have a nagging urge to achieve anyway. Capricorn moons who are retired and have completed successful careers, still want to make a mark on the world with some kind of successful venture. Achievement is what feeds their moon.
A heavy and commanding feeling surrounds the Capricorn moon. Their determined nature always shows through, and if pressed, they are a big rock to move. As an earth sign, Capricorn is reliable, responsible and conservative. They are always there to do their part and help, but they are also a cardinal sign. They are leaders even if their earth makes this leadership quality appear subtle. Push them, however, and you'll see their leadership abilities in full force. They are competitive and make their own paths. Capricorn moons do not like to be told what to do. They generally don't make a big fuss about playing the leadership role, but they will not be a follower. It's more of an assumed quality about them, and people usually pick up on it. People can feel their underlying, always-simmering aggressive nature, and seldom choose to push their buttons.
Capricorn is a universal, earth sign. As such, they want to have a tangible, noticeable affect on the world. This usually means they want to achieve some sort of status or simply accumulate wealth and gain the power and freedom it provides. They have the slightly detached nature of the universal signs in that they aren't focused on relationships or directly on themselves. They want to have an affect on the world at large. Their own needs and the needs of their relationships often come second to their need to achieve, giving them this kind of offish detachment. A willingness to endure self-deprivation in order to achieve a greater goal is a hallmark of this sign. However, they often can't understand why other people in their lives don't want to join in their chosen mission to achieve in life, whatever it may be. They can't understand why other people aren't willing to make the same sacrifices they are willing to make. Even if it's the mother whose mission is to have a large, perfectly functioning household, they expect every member of the household to help them with the same vigor they feel. The Capricorn moon assumes they are justified and right in dedicating themselves to their goals and they can't understand why everyone else doesn't share their intensity and dedication to their views and missions. To their credit, however, they are helpful when someone else asks for their help. Their dependable, "father like", attitude makes them naturally supportive and helpful.
