Capricorn Moon Sign

If you have a Capricorn moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Capricorn zodiac sign: reserved, structured and highly ambitious.

Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have a Capricorn moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Capricorn zodiac sign. Your moon sign and your Sun sign combined make up a more in-depth portrait of your personality.

So, what does the moon sign even mean?

The moon sign in astrology governs our “inner selves”—those feelings, deep desires and soul urges that not everyone sees. Much like the moon waxes and wanes, reveals and hides itself, the lunar cycles can also affect how much we share or show. Your moon sign can reveal how (and who) you love, or what you need to feel emotionally secure. It also plays a major role in romantic compatibility, revealing how harmonious your dynamic will be.

In the astrological birth chart, the moon sign is your “emotional personality,” a crucial part of understanding what makes you or someone else tick. Since the moon is the celestial body that’s  closest to the Earth, our moods and feelings are governed by its movements. In a person’s natal (or birth) chart, the moon sign indicates what will provide us with a sense of home and security—what we need as individuals to feel safe, secure and comfortable. The moon also drives some of our “gut reactions”—how we respond on a primal, instinctive level.

Because the moon comes out at night, the moon sign can also influence our internal  “shadow sides”—the parts of ourselves that only become visible when we self-reflect or get vulnerable with people. Often the moon sign doesn’t present externally or immediately like the robust Sun sign or masquerading rising sign, but becomes much more visible as you get to know a person and see how they respond to different life situations.

About the Capricorn moon sign:

Let’s get down to business. People born with a Capricorn moon sign in their natal chart are well-known for their reputation as the CEO of the zodiac. A Capricorn moon sign is highly ambitious, and tend toward leadership-oriented roles. They can often take on a lot of responsibility, assuming the guise of a parental/provider type, much like those born with their Sun in Capricorn.

If your moon is in Capricorn, chances are you’re programmed to achieve success and accolades with ambition like no other. But sometimes, a Capricorn moon sign can forget that they have their own wants and desires that need to be fulfilled. While they’re “like a rock” in most times of hardship, a Capricorn moon sign can sometimes feel resentful, angry or frustrated from putting their obligatory duties before their own heart’s desires.

Another challenge for a Capricorn moon sign is that they have a big challenge facing them: the task of openly facing their feelings and asking for what they really want. Ruled by Saturn, the zodiac’s teacher, a Capricorn moon sign can learn how to dig deep into their minds and hearts for the answers and take responsibility for their problems, rather than playing the victim.

As a grounded earth sign symbolized by the sturdy Mountain Goat, a Capricorn moon sign can sometimes appear a bit rough around the edges, but they’re sense of stability and structure is what takes them far in life.


It’s important for a Capricorn moon sign to work with a therapist or life coach, or be able to confide in close friends in order to help sort their complex emotions. In the realm of romantic relationships, a Capricorn moon sign needs to be able to mutually share and express their desires, as they’re also incredibly reliable and trustworthy. Stubborn by nature, it can sometimes be a challenge to see eye-to-eye with a Capricorn moon. And sometimes, they might hesitate to enter or leave a relationship due to the heavy weight of obligation they’ve imposed on themselves. Patience, more than anything else, is crucial when relating to those born with a Capricorn moon.
