Sun in Taurus, Moon in Capricorn Compatibility

This has the potential to be one of the most stable combinations around. When security-loving Taurus unites with structured Capricorn, they can build a rock-solid relationship. These two Earth signs will focus on creating a union that emphasizes hard work and material abundance.

Sun in Taurus is focused on personal security and resources. He’s a skilled provider, and will ensure that he and his partner always have enough money to keep them happy. While part of this involves his love of good food and sensual comforts, it’s actually based on his strong drive for survival. Commitment to his lover not only means being faithful, but making sure her needs are met as well. Although Sun in Taurus can overindulge in physical pleasures, this will only happen after he’s put in a solid day’s work. He understands that all good things must be earned.

Moon in Capricorn needs structure and control. Security equals boundaries around everything, including herself. She’s most satisfied when involved in some daunting project (usually work-related) that tests her mettle, and many times this will overshadow her relationship. Moon in Capricorn is capable of profound commitment, but she’ll never lose herself in her partner. Her lover must understand that as much as she wants him, she won’t need him. This Saturn-ruled Moon can shut down completely in times of stress, leaving her partner wondering if there’s anyone inside her fortress of solitude.

These two have an understanding: reality equals hard work and responsibility. Sun in Taurus will bring home the bacon, while Capricorn supports (and respects) his work ethic. Moon in Capricorn will be reassured by Taurus’ responsibility, and may even have her edges softened by his love of luxury. When Capricorn retreats into her own world, Sun in Taurus won’t push to bring her out; he likes things to be peaceful and would rather wait for her to emerge. The only risk is that these two could get so entrenched in their routines that they become stagnant. A lively dose of Fire or Air in their charts can help loosen things up.

  1. Excellent article, as always. I have to take exception to one thing though: “Her lover must understand that as much as she wants him, she won’t need him.” I can’t even tell you how tired I am of hearing this spouted. Gosh, one person said it then everyone ran with it. How many people will actually fall down dead when their SO leaves? Death does not come that easy, so I would guess that very few have the fortitude to lay there and die. Without my lover I put one foot in front of the other and go on day in and day out. But I die a little bit inside each day. Come on–yes I can survive–of course! But it’s the barest meager existence. So do I need you? YES.
