This couple is all about getting ahead. Sun in Leo loves to impress, and Moon in Capricorn has a need to succeed. Together, they can be an unbeatable team that vaults over the competition on their way to the top.
Sun in Leo knows how to work an audience. He’s intensely aware of how others perceive him, because he thrives on their attention and approval. If his partner treats him like royalty, she’ll always have the best seat in the house (and a backstage pass). Sun in Leo is an exuberant and committed lover (as long as he’s not ignored) but this exhibitionist will look for attention outside the relationship, as well. This doesn’t mean that he’ll be unfaithful, but he does have a childlike urge to impress everyone he meets.
Moon in Capricorn is the closet CEO. It may not be immediately obvious, but in her heart is the need to achieve something. Her relationship may be organized around this achievement. Her partner should understand that, while Moon in Capricorn may love him to bits, she doesn’t actually need to be with him. She doesn’t really need anyone, and her Shadow can emerge when she shuts down and retreats to her emotional ivory tower (usually as a reaction to feeling out of control).
Sun in Leo will be the King, and Moon in Capricorn will be his power behind the throne. For all his charm and glamour, Leo can be a tad lazy if not properly motivated. Moon in Capricorn will take care of that by focusing his energy on a goal, and firing up his competitive instinct. Sun in Leo will be grateful (while admiring her strength) although he may sulk if she cracks the whip too hard. This is when Moon in Capricorn will have to learn to mix some praise in with her orders. But with her disciplined support and his way with the public, these two can write their own ticket (while admiring each other’s talents along the way).
