When your Moon is out-of-balance, it manifests as general anxiety and compulsive behavior. Capricorn is the sign of restriction and limitation, and with the Moon there, it can feel a bit like building a dam on a rushing river. In this case, feelings can build up behind the dam for too long — and explode in dangerous ways when they finally burst through. You may also suffer from depression, especially since you can be so hard on yourself.
You seldom take your feelings at face value, preferring a methodical approach to understanding your emotions instead of just letting yourself feel them. You also pressure yourself to “just get over it,” which can lead you to fall into an emotional rut without even knowing it. Sometimes this disconnect between mind and body will manifest as sickness, with unresolved emotional distress actually causing physical symptoms, especially in your joints, bones and teeth.
To get out of the dark side and into the light, you have to learn to receive healthy support. Your Moon in Capricorn wants to have it all together, using every situation to get ahead — even personal relationships. But without nurturing yourself and learning the fine art of asking for help, your power source is significantly depleted. Sometimes you have to let go of needing control and just be. You don’t have to do it all yourself. Conversely, you don’t have to expect anyone else to take care of you. Too much suffering for the sake of a relationship deprives the world of your power. Maintaining a loving relationship takes hard work, but it shouldn’t take all the fun out of life.
Striking the balance between giving and receiving is the key to your happiness. Make time in your life for emotional check-ins with yourself and loved ones. Put it on your calendar. You may want to implement a regular practice that works for you. Do some journaling, practice insight meditation, or make a fancy wheel chart with color-coded sections for each emotion (“Today I feel ______”). Capricorn loves that kind of structure. Letting your emotions have equal time with your worldly goals will activate even more discipline and productivity.
