Sun in Libra’s bright social impulses will clash with Moon in Capricorn’s somber need for solitude. In order for Libra to avoid being hurt by Capricorn’s severe moods, he’ll have to learn to not take his partner’s coolness personally. She may be an island unto herself at times, but when this Saturn-ruled Moon commits to someone, she means business.
Sun in Libra gets accused of sprinkling everything with sugar. Although he can be superficial, this Venus-ruled sign truly wants to get along with everyone. He’s unfailingly polite and flirtatious (only Libra could pull that combination off), combining razor-sharp instincts for what people like with a distaste for conflict. While his agreeable demeanor (and constant indecision) may annoy his lover after awhile, Sun in Libra genuinely loves being in a couple. And his partner will reap the rewards of that love.
Moon in Capricorn needs to have her walls. She also needs time alone, even as she builds an organized, domestic foundation for her and her lover. What she doesn’t need is another person. Moon in Capricorn only pairs up when she wants to (and when she lets her guard down) because, in her heart, she embraces solitude and self-reliance. If her partner can accept that his somewhat emotionally distant lover is with him because she chooses to be, he’ll discover that she’s the rock of their relationship.
Sun in Libra will desperately try to cheer Capricorn up, mistaking her withdrawal for depression. Moon in Capricorn will feel annoyed with Libra’s efforts to make her happy, because she may not want to be happy at that particular moment. These two will need to accept that they have very different styles, even as they both want a traditional partnership. If Moon in Capricorn stays home and broods while Libra hits the town, he can learn to be OK with this. And it won’t hurt Capricorn to soften up a bit when Sun in Libra brings her flowers.
