Earthy Capricorn Moon is like the mountain that rises from the ocean over thousands of years. Airy Aquarius Moon is like a tornado overturning everything in its path. When you get these two together, you either have perfect enemies or the strangest of allies the world has seen. Capricorn Moon needs to belong, to be important, to mean something to the world. Aquarius Moon wants to create a new world in which everyone lives according to what Aquarius Moon thinks is right. Capricorn Moon loves tradition. Aquarius Moon hates it. Capricorn Moon wants to be an important person in the world. Aquarius Moon wants all the important people of the world to fear it. So, how on Earth would these two people actually get together and stay together? Capricorn Moon doesn't necessarily enjoy a good debate, and Aquarius Moon doesn't necessarily like being shown that patience is a virtue.
Perhaps it's fascination. They are both rigid in their own, weird ways, and perhaps because Capricorn Moon feels normal around Aquarius Moon. Aquarius Moon feels as if they must be doing something right if Capricorn Moon stiffens up at the mere mention of one of it's weird Aquarius Moon reactions to things. They're not entirely opposite, not deep down. Yes, they look that way, but at the very heart, they both want to be important. They want to make society move one way or another. Capricorn Moon wants to move the head of society and make it look up to Capricorn Moon. Aquarius Moon wants to kick society in the butt and send it scrambling away. So, if they ever do get married, it may be in circumstances in which they both want to create some sort of major change, in which Aquarius Moon makes the change and Capricorn Moon leads the people in the right direction. It is a strategic match more than it is a love match.
The chances of these two staying together depend on whether or not they have some sort of common goal in mind. They come together to do something big, and that thing has to remain in order for them to stay together. Capricorn Moon doesn't need a lot of affection or attention, and neither does Aquarius Moon. In fact, both can go quite a long time without kisses or cuddles. This is good, seeing as how they may the kind of couple where they spend large chunks of the relationship away from each other. It's possible that a long-term relationship like this either starts as a long-distance relationship, or always remains one. Living together is going to be difficult. Capricorn Moon needs things to be just so, and is conscious of the right thing to buy, right down to the dinner plates. Tradition and elegance are key. Nothing trendy, flashy, or cheap looking. Aquarius Moon loves the new and novel. It would rather install solar panels on the roof even though they may make the house stand out from the rest in the neighborhood than give up on them to fit in. Aquarius Moon will never honor a restrictive covenant, so any Capricorn Moon planning to buy a house with them should remain aware of that and be ready to pay a fine or two.
But for these two, children, a dog, a house, and all that isn't the goal. In fact, this couple may not want to get old and retire because having to spend all their time together makes the other less fascinating and new. If they manage to stay together for the long haul, it has to be under unique circumstances. Capricorn Moon will hate this but will bear it bitterly and patiently. Aquarius Moon will try to be a good spouse, but will find the expectations absolutely baffling. Even in their old age, they may find that living separately is the best thing for their marriage.
Okay, here's where it gets weird. Capricorn Moon needs to get laid way more than Aquarius Moon does. Capricorn Moon is the most lustful Moon of the zodiac, and Aquarius Moon is the least sexy Moon of the zodiac. Aquarius Moon just isn't naturally inclined toward lovemaking in the conventional sense. Aquarius Moon likes sex because it allows it to explore and break taboos. Capricorn Moon likes sex for almost the same reason: it wants to indulge in all of those taboos, so long as no one ever finds out. However, Aquarius Moon sees sex as a natural part of life and talks about it openly. It may not talk about how it got it on the night before, but talks frankly. This unnerves Capricorn Moon, who, among many other things, wants the world to think it never has sex, even though that's all it ever really wants to do.
But while things are good, this is quite an interesting adventure. Aquarius Moon is game for just about everything Capricorn Moon wants to try, at the very least to try it. Aquarius Moon, however, is more open to certain other things, like swinging and sex clubs, which Capricorn Moon is surprisingly interested in trying. It's not a sexually jealous Moon; Capricorn Moon is jealous when it thinks its lover bought something for someone else or financially supported them, not so much that they flirted or even had sex with someone else. Strangely enough, the sex life doesn't become the problem with this is couple, even though for just about everyone else, this could be a red flag. This is their common ground, where they're just two people enjoying being people.
The danger with this relationship is that it is built on some sort of external need. Perhaps they're focused on business, politics, science, or the arts. They see an opportunity in each other. While they admire each other's qualities, what they really want is love, and love doesn't come merely from admiration. What these two must do is to really look at each other and decide that there is something independent of themselves and what they want that is loveable. Sure, Aquarius Moon has a way of gathering people's support. But is there nothing else to love about them? Capricorn Moon knows how to look important and how to gain respect from those in authority. But what else about them? Because once the work is done, or once they can no longer work on whatever it is they're working on, then there are just two people. It would be a shame to spend a lifetime and realize that one has spent a lifetime with a stranger.
