Earthy Capricorn Moon is like the age-old mountain slowly rising from the sea. It is patient, it is hardworking, it is stoic, and it is strong. Put two of them together and you have something quite formidable. That is, if one of them ever makes a move. One of the features of this relationship is that it's probably slow to start since Capricorn Moon takes its time and waits for the right moment. It never rushes into things if rushing would mean ruining. It won't lose face, and it doesn't want to seem coarse or impolite. Months, years, decades: these two can admire each other from afar and act as if they feel nothing, perhaps competing, perhaps studying each other to learn to be better and more productive. That they do get together at all is one of life's tiny, everyday miracles. Of course, they may not run in the same social circles, as Capricorn Moon has a tendency to marry up or down, always searching for true love.
These two will marry if they stay together long enough because it's the right thing to do. That's what they think about, and this is how they make decisions. It will be a lovely, traditional affair, and without nonsense, or silliness, or anything gaudy or too trendy. They will be frugal and buy their first home with cash. Of course, they will make a lot of money, but no one will be the wiser. They may literally be sleeping on a gold mine and say nothing to anyone about it. Weirdly enough, this turns them on. Actually, a lot of things turn them on. You don't want to know what else they're sleeping on top of.
Capricorn Moons may seem loyal and faithful, but they can be tempted. They're uptight, withdrawn, and aloof in public, but in private, these two are freaks. If they indulge in their need to cut loose together, then all is well. These two are like a special haven for each other. They may seem like perfect, even-tempered parents, though strict and cold. They may be model employees and model bosses. They may be pillars of their community. They make sure they know the right people. They know how to dress, how to act, how to talk, how to walk, and how to choose their friends. These two are social climbers, and if they were born lower, they will climb higher. Now, it's very likely that this marriage is either between two people from two different social classes or two different generations. They don't need the relationship to appear equal. They really are together to get social benefit from each other, and deep down, these souls are so old they're ageless. So, they're pretty much the same age on the inside.
However, if they feel the need to keep up appearances for their spouse, they will stray. It first starts with withdrawing, and then finding someone who appreciates them for who they act like in public, and then someone who lets them let their hair down. They don't flaunt it. They just start staying at work late, or they suddenly have extra responsibilities with the charity they volunteer for, or they are called away to some other duty that keeps out of their spouse's line of sight. And the one who is being hurt doesn't say anything. They don't demand a divorce, or scream, or burn the other one's stuff. They silently endure for appearances, for money, for the family name.
So, either way, this couple is in it to the very end. Everyone around them may not even know if there's a problem or if there's nothing but bliss. In a way, they keep the very heart of their relationship a secret from everyone even until the very end, when they're both extremely old and gray.
Capricorn Moon likes sex because it allows it to indulge in sensuality and because it feels naughty. Capricorn Moon is actually a very lusty moon, and it likes getting it on even more than those who are more demonstrative and forthright about sex. It also tends to have a lot of hang-ups and sexual kinks. Vanilla sex just won't do, and two Capricorn Moons in the bedroom, with the lights off, whispering, after they've made sure the children are asleep, are the freakiest pair you can imagine. Pool-suite romance hotels that don't have windows were made for Capricorn Moons to run around naked like two wood nymphs while everyone thinks they're visiting the Grand Canyon.
Whatever you can think of, Capricorn Moon has at least thought of doing it. Sure, they deny it. They'll never tell anyone to their face. You could walk into their bedroom and think that nuns slept there (not sexy nuns, either). But you betcha that when no one is looking, and when there's no work to do, and no one to entertain, or no meetings to attend, or no children who will wake up and hear them, and no neighbors who will see, and no need to get up early in the morning, and they've waited at least a half hour after eating...these two are getting their freak on. They love the smells, the sounds, the sights, the touch, and the taste of sex in whatever forms they imagine. They tend to love to role-play whomever they are not in real life. A powerful businessman likes to be spanked, and a woman who is meek in her day life is a powerful dominatrix behind closed doors. This secret world is very much at the heart of their relationship, and may be the thing that keeps them together during rough times and absences.
Capricorn Moon is self-conscious. It needs others to think favorably of them. This includes favorable views of their marriage and home life. They know what the rules are, and they know what their roles are supposed to be. But at the heart of every relationship is honesty, and for this to work, they must be honest with themselves. Capricorn Moon must not fool itself into thinking it is essentially who others say it is. It must know that it is more than a role. This way, Capricorn Moon also can understand that the spouse is not just a role. People change and grow, and even if Capricorn Moon tries to stay the same, they can't. They shouldn't expect their lover to stay the same either.
