It would rather spend its time working than having idle chitchat with friends who don't have anything to say that it can use for the future. Capricorn Moon doesn't care what the neighbors are doing in the backyard. It does care if the neighbors bought a newer, fancier car.

Capricorn Moon is a lusty, sensual sign that waits until the doors are closed, the blinds are drawn, and the work is done to let loose. It really enjoys sex, and it really loves all the facets of sex: the touching, the kissing, the caressing, and the orgasm. It's also into anything naughty. This is the one place it feels it can break the rules, and it wants to break them all. Being with happy-go-lucky Gemini Moon, who approaches sex with more innocence, may unwittingly walk into something that actually goes beyond its curiosity.
