Moon in Capricorn
Capricorn is known as the sea goat. The myth behind Capricorn is that the Pricus, the first sea goat (who was created by the greek god Chronos) created all the sea goats. Over time, the sea goats made their way to land and became the four-legged goats that we see today. The sea goats of yore had the front half of a goat and the back half is the tail of a fish. Think about that dichotomy. Goats like to jump around and climb mountains, and fish like to swim in the deep sea. Earth and water. In astrology, earth is often seen as work and responsibilities, while water is seen as emotions and dreams. Capricorn wants to bring these two seemingly opposite things together. Work-life balance? That’s the wheelhouse of Capricorn, and their ultimate life goal.
Slow and steady wins the race when the moon is in Capricorn. That goal may seem far away and out of reach, but just know that one step at a time will get you there. This moon is all about business and structure. The moon in Capricorn is a time to plan long-term goals, sign paperwork (as long as Mercury isn’t retrograde), pause and see how far you’ve come (look at how far you’ve come up your mountain!), go for a hike (very goat like, wouldn’t you say?).
Capricorn rules the 10th house, is a earth sign, and a cardinal sign. The 10th house is career, ambition, wordy accomplishments, long-term goals, father figure, boundaries, authority. Earth signs need structure and form, and are dependable and reliable. Cardinal signs initiate and lead, they like to be in charge.
