Sun in Capricorn will provide external status, while Moon in Libra keeps things pretty at home. However, Libra’s need for beauty and romance may be overlooked by Capricorn’s practical approach to love.
Sun in Capricorn is a top-notch provider for his partner. Responsibility is second nature to him, and commitment to his relationship will be matched by commitment to his job. Sun in Capricorn views his role in life as a creator of excellence, but his ambitions are not for personal glory. Rather, he wants to do what he does with maximum success and integrity. His approach can make him a dry partner (he’s not big on romantic flourishes) because he wants to spend every minute productively. Shadow Capricorn can emerge when he takes the energy of responsibility too far, and becomes a controlling lover with rigid boundaries.
Moon in Libra is a top-notch partner. Her needs are focused on relating to another, which can make her seem like the “ideal partner.” However, Moon in Libra can end up completely ignoring her own needs. It’s important that her lover is aware of her tendency to give uncomplainingly but expect appreciation (even if she doesn’t speak up). A sure sign that she’s feeling unappreciated is her icy indifference or passive-aggressive behavior. In her heart, she’s a romantic who adores impractical but loving gestures. Even if gifts or flowers aren’t available, a sincere “thank you” for her efforts will go a long way.
Sun in Capricorn may initially think he’s found his perfect match. He’ll work hard and come home to Moon in Libra’s exquisitely prepared dinner. In his mind, the exchange of his efforts for her domestic nurturing will be fair. Moon in Libra will appreciate the financial security he provides, but she’ll find that the emotional content is lacking. As she becomes more resentful about his perceived lack of attention, he’ll become impatient with her buried anger. Neither sign is big on open communication, so it could take awhile for the tension to erupt. In order to avoid an atmosphere of simmering discontent, Capricorn should learn to tune into what his partner is feeling, and Libra can make an effort to be more direct about what she wants.
