The Astrology Of Your Inner Moon Child: Moon In Capricorn

MOON IN CAPRICORN

Just as Moon in Sagittarius is the life of the party, Moon in Capricorn is the clean-up crew that necessarily must follow afterwards. You have a reputation for being calm, contained, and maybe a little distant. This is because you have a tremendous depth of feeling that needs to be protected by maintaining emotional self-control. This can either eventually drive yourself or those who care about you completely nuts. Moon in Capricorn often comes across as managing its personal relationships with ruthless efficiency, which may be wise but isn’t terribly romantic.

You usually find one thing, place, or person in which to place your sense of emotional security. If that’s another person, you are probably fairly young (and haven’t learned how untrustworthy humans can be) or fairly old (and have spent most of your life overcoming your suspicions). Your defensiveness can be strangely appealing to other people who enjoy solving emotional mysteries, and can be frustrating as hell to everyone else. Moon in Capricorn strives for emotional self-sufficiency, which is as admirable as it is impossible.

THE MOON IN CAPRICORN STORY

“Tell me my name and you can have your baby!” The little man said.

“It’s Rumpelstiltskin!” the Miller’s Daughter said triumphantly.

Rumpelstiltskin pondered this for a moment, and then removed a contract from his back pocket. “Here you go,” he said as he handed it to her. “Spell it right, otherwise the agreement is void!”

The Miller’s Daughter thought about this for a moment and then filled in the form. Rumpelstiltskin examined it and found that, surprisingly, she had gotten it right.

“Okay then,” he said. “Now all you have to do is find a Notary before midnight to make it legal and binding.”

“But it’s 11:30 at night! And it’s a Saturday!” The Miller’s Daughter shouted in disbelief.

Rumpelstiltskin chuckled. “You shoulda read the fine print on the original agreement, sucker.”

Pluto In Capricorn, Love In The Stars, And A Chainsaw In The Trunk

Oh, poor Capricorn… Pluto passing through your sign, half the other planets squaring you… it’s never entirely easy being a Capricorn. Some days it probably feels like you’re going to open up the paper to your Daily Horoscope and it will say something like this like this:


Capricorn: Today an attractive stranger will see you in a coffee shop. He will invite you out to dinner, and then for a romantic evening at his secluded cabin in the woods. You will forget to tell anyone where you are going.

You will never be seen again.

Post-Eclipse Advice: Pet The Goat

I’ve been looking at the upcoming planetary transits for the next few months. There’s the usual mix of peril and opportunity out there, but I think I’ve already drawn one important conclusion:

Capricorn: you guys are going to get stiffed in the empathy-from-others department. Again.

Yes, that eclipse wasn’t a lot of fun for any of us, but I think it’s going to be a little less fun for you than for others.

Among all the heavy-duty planets involved in the eclipse, it’s easy to overlook that Mercury has entered Cancer… your opposite sign. That means an emphasis on communications with your partner(s) in life. And on top of that eclipse energy? That (might) mean just one thing when it comes to your conversations with loved ones. So, naturally, verbally-induced disappointments are likely to be more frequent than usual for the next while.

This makes me a little sad, because I’ve always thought Capricorns were cute little things, like goats at the petting zoo. People generally agree with this assessment at first, until someone mentions bringing a goat home as a pet.

Seriously, though: I love you guys. Your just a sensitive as your opposite, Cancer, but manage to function in a dignified, orderly way… or at least you maintain the appearance of it, which is almost as good. On the inside, though? You’re as messy as the rest of us… maybe a little more, because being a Capricorn is a little like being born wearing a pinstriped suit. You have the same needs as everyone else, but based on appearances, everyone assumes you showed up knowing how to change your own diaper. Efficiently.

Come to think of it, a lot of you out there look like you’ve got it together on the outside a lot better than you do on the inside. And that of course, is why I’m here.

Astro-Singalong: Mars In Capricorn, Presented With A Challenge

I am the stone that the builder refused
I am the visual,
the inspiration,
that made lady sing the blues

I’m the spark that makes your idea bright
the same spark
that lights the dark
so that you can know your left from your right

I am the ballot in your box
the bullet in the gun
that inner glow
that lets you know
to call your brother “son”

The story that just begun
the promise of what’s to come
and im’ma remain a soldier
til’ the war is won (won)

chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop
Judo flip, chop chop chop

Book Excerpt: Sun In Capricorn

The symbol for Capricorn is The Goat, but the ancient Babylonian symbol was a weird-looking goat/fish hybrid, because ancient Babylonians didn’t have All Terrain Vehicles, which would have described Capricorn pretty well. They are solid and steady in almost every environment, and don’t mind running you over to get to where they’re going.

They usually worry too much about things, and even the happy ones usually end up sprouting worry lines on their forehead a little sooner than everyone else. They aren’t necessarily more prone to depression than any other sign, but they are certainly more at home than most in that state of mind. What usually pulls them though is the solid determination that somehow life will be better if they can arrange things more logically.

Capricorns understand the value of keeping their nose to the grindstone, and Capricorn bosses usually keep their employee’s noses ground to the cheekbones.

Goat People are usually the stable base you can build just about anything on. The men are usually reliable and hard-working. The women are sensitive enough to be hurt about all the right things, but brave enough to not let it show too much.

Discount Capricorn Humor!

Hello Capricorn. I figured that since Saturn in Virgo is all nice and trine to Venus and Mars in Taurus, this ought to be a reasonably good time for you — or so I figure. Of course, there’s always a Capricorn ready, willing and able to pop up and volunteer that things are quite unpleasant, actually or maybe it’s okay but my back hurts or something like that. This is why I love Goat People: they’re so consistent.
For you Capricorns who are having trouble exploiting these solid transits (curse that New Moon opposing Pluto!), here’s a little humor to lighten the day. You’d be pleased: since it’s an old joke I re-wrote for you, I got a discount!
***
An old Capricorn and his wife are at the County Fair. There’s a barn-storming pilot there with an old-school biplane, offering rides for twenty dollars. The Capricorn stands there and spends a long time looking at the plane and is clearly interested. The pilot notices this and approaches him about it.
“I’d love to,” says the Capricorn, “but $20 seems pretty expensive.”
“Tell you what,” the pilot says. “If you and your wife can keep quiet for the entire flight, it’s free. But if I hear one single noise out of you, it’s double the cost.”
“Deal!” says the Capricorn.
The pilot gets into the plane, and Capricorn and his wife get into the back seat.
The pilot takes off. He does insane barrel rolls and dives and loops and flies through an open barn and generally flies like a maniac, upside down and all over the place, all the while listening for a sound from the back of the plane. But he hears nothing.
Finally the pilot lands and gets out of the plane. The Capricorn approaches him and the pilot says, “Well, I’ve got to hand it to you: I didn’t hear a thing. Congratulations… that ride was free.”
“Thanks,” says the Capricorn. “Of course, I almost said something when my wife fell out…”

Pet The Goat: Be Nice To Capricorn

I’ve been looking at the upcoming planetary transits for the next few months. There’s the usual mix of peril and opportunity out there, but I think I’ve already drawn one important conclusion:

Capricorn: you guys are going to get stiffed in the empathy-from-others department. Again.

Sure, the Sun, Saturn, and Uranus are all in helpful places for Capricorn right now. And even if they weren’t, no one has a talent like Capricorn does for making things take root in the worst soil. But I’ve noticed over the years that if there’s one Sun Sign that can get stiffed by transits and doesn’t yell about it half as much as they should, it’s the Goats.

Mars is going retrograde in Cancer… Capricorn’s seventh house, ruling relationships. So while everything else appears to be working more or less on schedule, helping Capricorn build a solid, more reliable Tomorrow for Pluto to star screwing with next year… the love life appears to be lagging behind. This makes me a little sad, because I’ve always thought Capricorns were cute little things, like goats at the petting zoo. People generally agree with this assessment at first, until someone mentions bringing a goat home as a pet.

Seriously, though: I love you guys. Your just a sensitive as your opposite, Cancer, but manage to function in a dignified, orderly way… or at least you maintain the appearance of it, which is almost as good. On the inside, though? You’re as messy as the rest of us… maybe a little more, because being a Capricorn is a little like being born wearing a pinstriped suit. You have the same needs as everyone else, but based on appearances, everyone assumes you showed up knowing how to change your own diaper. Efficiently.

Come to think of it, a lot of you out there look like you’ve got it together on the outside a lot better than you do on the inside. And that of course, is why I’m here.

Your Attention Please: The Capricorn Guide To Compatibility

Comrades:


Certain forces have conspired to, at times, deny Capricorn the love and romance that Capricorn requires to function as a powerful, independent entity. In order to more efficiently address this matter, you have all been assigned to one of twelve cadres. You will receive your final score when you return home, or to the factory, or to Re-Education Camp, where you will have a glorious time supporting our future triumph over the forces of solitude.

Aries: Your fire and passion are admirable, but it’s so uncontrolled and undisciplined that there’s a constant risk of you burning down what we’ve built. Go to the camp.

Taurus: Solid, dependable worker. Excellent at following the Party Line, but your focus on the comforts of life… including a slight tendency to stray… is worrisome. You may return to your home.

Gemini: Scattered. I have a hard time believing that you believe in the goals of The Party, given your fondness for enemy propaganda. Your charm is lovely, but it also makes me suspicious. Report to Camp!

Cancer: Sweet, moody, and defensive, just like me. With time and discipline, you could make Chairman. Just watch the overreacting with distance when I overreact to you with distance. Report to home…. and bake me cookies.

Leo: Completely counter-revolutionary. I understand the need to keep the troops entertained, but I always feel like the Andrews Sisters are still on stage with you when it’s time to charge the enemy hill instead. You know where we could use talent like that? Camp!

Virgo: Excellent quality. Stable, intelligent, and efficient. However, you tendency to worry is worrisome to me, and makes me question your loyalty. But I know you don’t mean it. Return home anyway, with an escort from Security.

Libra: Decadent! Completely unfocused on anything of real value to The Party. All this romance and sweetness is merely a cover for your desire to not take things seriously. The appearance of not taking it seriously enough is equivalent to lack of seriousness. Thoughtcrime! Report to Camp!

Scorpio: I admire your intensity, and how well-armed you are. That intensity can be worrisome though: it makes you prone to lashing out. A little time in the factory sewing cheap exports will perfect you. Once you’ve learned you’re lesson… full parole.

Sagittarius: Once again, entertainment value is no substitute for ideological commitment. You have ideology certainly… it just isn’t mine. And what you do have is shamefully disorganized. Thank you for the attempt at amusement. Camp!

Capricorn: Solid and dependable, just like me. Secretly sweet too… just like me. Truly an equal. the only problem here: do you recall being told this was a democracy? No, neither do I. Allow me to demonstrate. Go to the factory!

Aquarius: We’re so completely different that it’s hard to see how you can fit into the society I have planned for you. But you’re dedicated to a higher goal too, so you may report to the factory. But sit right under Surveillance Camera Twelve.

Pisces: Your emotionality isn’t my usual style, but this foreign technology called “compassion” you possess is of great interest to The Party. In time, it could be forged into a powerful weapon of romantic victory. Report to home, and stand by for further compliance.

There will now be a period of illustrative musical entertainment. You are instructed to enjoy this.
