Sun in Pisces, Moon in Capricorn Compatibility

Sun-Moon CompatibilitySun in Pisces’ dreaminess will rub Moon in Capricorn the wrong way. As Pisces explores the imaginative potentials of life, Capricorn will feel dismissive or even threatened by his boundaryless approach. However, Moon in Capricorn could be exactly what Pisces needs to keep him grounded and on track.

Sun in Pisces is open to almost anything. His awareness of the magic in everyday life makes him a whimsical and romantic partner. But his extreme sensitivity means that his lover will have to be vigilant about not stepping over his boundaries. The problem is that Sun in Pisces’ boundaries are often underdeveloped or non-existent. His lover will have to know when he’s crossed the line from giving/healing to losing himself in her issues. A partner with a strong grasp of practical routines would also be helpful to balance out his creative wanderings.

Moon in Capricorn is the queen of emotional boundaries. Guarded and controlled, this Saturn-ruled sign knows all about taking responsibility for her commitments. Her partner can rest assured that Moon in Capricorn will treat her relationship with the utmost respect, although he may find her to be defensive or cold on occasion. She certainly feels as much as the next sign, but she is one of the most self-reliant Moons. She doesn’t actually need anyone, and if taken too far, this natural self-sufficiency can become distorted into a fear of displaying any vulnerability.

Moon in Capricorn will feel that Sun in Pisces’ vague wanderings and odd fascinations are a waste of time. If she’s in maximum shutdown mode, she’ll feel threatened by his lack of respect for routine. Sun in Pisces may attempt to touch Capricorn’s guarded heart with romantic gestures, but he’ll be hurt by her coldness, and eventually withdraw. However, if other aspects between these two indicate sufficient love and attraction, they could each have something that the other needs. Pisces’ gentle faith can dissolve some of Capricorn’s mistrust, and Capricorn can teach Pisces a thing or two about boundaries.

  1. Sun in Pisces with moon in Aries with Capricorn moon and sun … Doesn’t sound promising given your interpretation 🙁

  2. Augh! There is this Pieces man I met at work who absolutely blows my mind. The attraction was from day one. Long story short I always noticed him looking at me so one day I smiled & said hello in passing, from there he’d say hello or wave every time I saw him unless he was with his buddies. After a period of hellos and small conversations he asked for my number. We’re both pretty busy so texting was the norm. To be quite honest we’d text all day, good nights, good mornings and everything in between. He shocked me with the sexual side of him bc I didn’t expect it.. but I liked it. I really let my guard down with him, not all the way but enough to get my feelings hurt. We both made it clear that we didn’t want to rush into anything too soon but would rather take more time before getting to that point. I thought everything was great but one night after pushing the envelope we sexted (like sex messaging).. I warned him twice, didn’t stop him & untimately decided to go with the moment (it was great) but immediately afterward felt a distance from him. Then he just stopped talking to me! That’s never happened to me.. I know for sure he’s attracted to me & I thought I made myself clear as well.. Anyway, I reached out to him 3 or 4 times over the course of a week and a half, when/if he did respond it was literally one or two words.. A friend if mine told me to ignore him back so I currently am, he text me the one day and waved at me nearly all day at work. He looked really sad but still won’t text me or call to say hello. Saturday was our last day working together Bc he got a better job else where.. I just feel confused and puzzled but if he doesn’t contact me I know I’ll eventually get over it.. Blah!

  3. I’m a Capricorn so it really sucks to play this child-like game..

  4. It’s the nature of Pisces. Take it from me (Pisces sun, Sagittarius moon). Disappearing even from those we care for is a common occurrence. We don’t always understand why we need the space and retreat time, and why we have to disappear entirely from the face of the earth for a while, but it’s a feeling that can not be ignored. Please try not to take it personally. I know you’re likely long since over it, but maybe this will help someone going through a similar dilemma. -K
