Capricorn is the sign of established position, career orientation, father’s figure, and respect. It’s also called the area of karma because it will show our general orientation in this life, how we deal with obstacles and how durable we are while facing those obstacles.

Moon in Capricorn is in the area of its “fall” because it is placed opposite Cancer, the sign Moon governs. This means that it doesn’t feel so good here, and due to the cold and disciplined nature of the planet Saturn, the ruler of Capricorn, the Moon, and therefore, a person’s feelings will be cold or frozen to some extent.

What does it mean to have a Capricorn Moon?

The sign of Capricorn belongs to the earth element. You could say “frozen” or crystallized earth, like rocks. And its ruler is the planet Saturn. This sign revolves around ideas of practicality, pragmatism, and discipline. It’s what we achieve and what we are remembered for even after we die.

The sign of Cancer, ruled by the Moon, stands opposite Capricorn. And in the same way, Moon represents the mother and the home, Capricorn represents the father principle and what we achieve outside that home, and that is a career.

Since Capricorn is the seventh or the partnership area from Cancer, Moon doesn’t feel so good here because it has to take the obligations of the opposite principle and the Moon fears those tasks.

Discipline, hard work, facing obstacles, and resolving them quickly are areas the Moon can’t manage that well and feels restrained and confused. This is why this person can appear like someone cold, silent when in reality, they are afraid not to make any mistake.

Moon In Capricorn Traits & Personality

Moon in Capricorn Traits

When it comes to Capricorn Moon’s positive traits, this person will be practical and pragmatic the most. This will be someone who will quickly and realistically deal with any issue and resolve it for the best.

The individual will have innate discipline and they will never have “bad days”, showing annoyance, boredom, or bad manners. Mostly due to those characteristics, their career will be steady and always lead to success.

Capricorn Moon’s negative traits will show through their discipline and pragmatism, too. When they start some project they will turn into a machine, often placing fear onto others and acting so stubborn that people around them will try to escape. They will lack basic empathy, and appear dry and boring to others.

In certain moments of low-energy levels, this individual will go through their “famous” depressive phases when they will be silent and immovable for days. They will emanate that heavy gloomy energy and pessimism to such an extent that plants around them will die.
