Status is the theme for this relationship. Both of these signs crave the trappings of success, but Mars in Leo’s flashy approach may feel too obvious for reserved Moon in Capricorn. However, if Capricorn can see beyond Leo’s playful glitz and recognize his powerful ambition, these two could make a formidable team.
Mars in Leo may seem to care only about the spotlight. But underneath his craving for attention is 24 carat ambition and pure dignity. Mars in Leo is hardwired for success, because he’ll never be content unless he’s number one. And at his core, he respects himself. This means that he can be a driven partner who gives his lover the best – with the added bonus of fun and romance.
Moon in Capricorn needs to have a serious goal. She feels secure when she has something to work towards, preferably involving a long climb to the top. Moon in Capricorn doesn’t trust anything that comes too easily, so her lover can expect her to treat their relationship like a long-term business partnership. Her approach may not be romantic, but she’ll bring her utmost dedication and determination to the table.
Mars in Leo won’t impress Moon in Capricorn. She’ll find his attempts to dazzle her distasteful, and his romantic flourishes silly. Depending on the other connections between their charts, Leo will find Moon in Capricorn’s edge too harsh for his ego. Or, he’ll view her as someone worth winning, because he appreciates a strong sense of dignity. Eventually, Capricorn will recognize his inner pride and ability to shine at the top. That’s when these two can really connect. Moon in Capricorn will keep him grounded by limiting his more extravagant gestures, and Leo will inject some fun into the relationship. Maybe he’ll even teach Capricorn a thing or two about romance.
