Fiery Sagittarius Moon is like a wildfire slowly snaking through the forest. Earthy Capricorn is like the mountain rising up to the sky. Together you get quite an odd couple. Sagittarius Moon is sloppy, carefree, and always looking up and forward. It could fall into an open manhole. Capricorn Moon is practical, down-to-earth, materialistic, and always looking at its feet. It won't trip, but it always misses the view. When these two come together, it's probably because of a fascination. One has what the other definitely lacks. Sagittarius Moon could get their ideas off the ground if they could only stick with it and figure out the politics of making things happen. Capricorn Moon would be happier if it could learn to be more open to chance and to stop caring what other people think.
They can hang out alone, but Capricorn Moon and Sagittarius Moon just can't really enjoy going out socially. Capricorn Moon is a bit of a stick in the mud who feels sorry for themselves when Sagittarius Moon is having fun. Sagittarius Moon feels left out when Capricorn Moon is talking its fancy friends, associates, and colleagues. Sagittarius Moon doesn't care about wearing the right thing, going to the right places, or having the right friends. Capricorn Moon doesn't care about trying new things or seeing new places for the hell of it. Sagittarius Moon wants to try the new Asian fusion restaurant, while Capricorn Moon is willing to wait on a reservation at an exclusive restaurant where there is many courses and much cutlery on the table.
If these two do marry, Capricorn Moon probably gets the wedding it wants, with elegance, high-class things, and nothing garish, bright, or spicy. It will be a perfectly traditional wedding. Sagittarius Moon, who is never quite sure about getting married, longs for something more interesting, or skipping the church wedding and going straight to the party. This isn't where the trouble begins, but where it starts to become most noticeable.
Sagittarius Moon is happy-go-lucky, and so long as it's free, it doesn't mind letting someone else have their way, especially if they insist. Capricorn Moon ends up becoming the leader in this relationship. Capricorn Moon makes all the important decisions: where to live, what to eat, who to hang out with, what associations to join, how many children to have, what to do on the holidays...and Sagittarius Moon just takes a backseat. It lets Capricorn Moon do whatever it wants.
The problem is that Capricorn Moon is more insecure and tends to actively create security. Sagittarius Moon doesn't give a hoot about being secure. Thus, Capricorn Moon has to work overtime trying to make a life for them. Sagittarius Moon wouldn't care if they didn't have furniture or food in the fridge. Not paying the electric bill and having the lights go out is an adventure, not a nightmare, to Sagittarius Moon.
And then, one day, Sagittarius Moon starts to drift away. It won't demand its space. It just starts to take it. While Capricorn Moon is busy making a life for them, Sagittarius Moon is running away in its mind and heart. It won't fit into the nice, high profile life Capricorn Moon wants. At first, Sagittarius Moon takes too long to get the groceries, or makes friends with a new group of people, or makes a sudden career change. Capricorn Moon and Sagittarius Moon don't fight. They just keep the peace until one day they realize they have little in common.
Sagittarius Moon likes sex for the orgasm and the thrill of it. Sex is a friendly thing to do with friendly people. Capricorn Moon like sex because it's a time when it can let go, explore the carnal and the taboo, and know that no one else knows. To illustrate how this can go wrong, let us remember that Sagittarius Moon tends to speak frankly about matters of the heart, including relationships. Whatever Capricorn Moon wants to keep secret (oh, and they have a lot they want to keep secret), is going to come out. Sagittarius Moon isn't into foreplay, setting the mood, or kissing and cuddling afterward. Capricorn Moon isn't either, but it needs some context to make sex thrilling or dangerous, and Sagittarius Moon just can't pretend to feel naughty. Sagittarius Moon will have sex anywhere; Capricorn Moon will have sex anywhere so long as it doesn't get caught but it also feels that it's letting its hair down.
These two frustrate each other in bed. Sagittarius Moon is ready to go like an uncut horse, and Capricorn Moon just isn't ready that quickly. Work has to be done. The mood has to be right. The neighbors won't hear them. The bed has to be made. By the time Capricorn Moon is ready, Sagittarius Moon has already masturbated and gone to sleep. Capricorn Moon, oddly enough, doesn't mind masturbating, either. That's where it can indulge in fantasy without worry of being caught or shamed. The problem is that these two might fall into a pattern where they get off but not with each other, the way that college roommates take turns using the dorm room for a quick release.
This isn't a completely doomed relationship, but there are things that can be greatly improved upon. Sagittarius Moon needs to learn to stand up for itself and be counted. It's an equal partner in the relationship, and Capricorn Moon won't know what Sagittarius Moon wants unless it says so. Likewise, it would be good of Capricorn Moon to see what Sagittarius Moon wants before doing anything. Capricorn Moon has a desire to fix what it sees as flaws in Sagittarius Moon. It thinks Sagittarius Moon has a lot of wasted potential because it's not ambitious. On the other hand, Sagittarius Moon can teach Capricorn Moon to see the meaning behind what it does and why a fulfilling, rather than impressive life, may be a better goal to reach.
