Moon in Taurus can be depicted as the proverbial Ferdinand the Bull, a gentle soul, with an amiable disposition both reliable and steady with a sensuous streak. Serene, placid, in touch with nature, and the beauty of earth rhythms are some of the adjectives used to describe this placement.
Their mellow character makes them resistant to material change since they need to be physically comfortable and settled in order to feel safe. In other words, a lunar Taurus is a creature who craves familiarity, routine. Any disruption is opposed with a stubborn attitude, which consists, often times, with going out of their comfort zone to avoid all hints of “messy” or emotional unpredictable situations. Confronted with such a crisis, it finds itself at loss on how to respond, except in a pragmatic way. A behavior which might not sit well with a more sensitive soul.
On the other hand, anyone able to provide them with a deep sense of stability is rewarded with a rock-solid long-term relationship, material security, and a pleasure prone partner who thrives in providing a family life.
Moon in Virgo is known for her sharp, analytical mind bent on using her skills in concrete ways. Prior to applying her knowledge, she analyzes in detail the situation before proceeding, as she is a bit of a worrier and afraid of failure.
This trait comes from her perfectionist streak, which abhors making mistakes, misunderstanding instructions or just fall short of the high standards she has set for herself.
Her perfectionism makes this moon very disciplined. In her mind, a better, more efficient, organized, and practical way to deal with concrete tasks can always be devised; and, by golly, she will come up with the perfect solution, in her own fastidious manner.
Virgo’s desire for perfection is also directed inward as well. She pursues self-improvement often in an attempt to silence the voices whispering her skills are inadequate, her accomplishments “not good enough.”
Conversely, this pursuit for betterment causes irritability over other people’s inefficiency, lack of punctuality, sloppiness, or simply not following this moon’s strict criteria.
These same standards make this placement difficult to live with since she experiences a hard time relaxing, and having fun. If the all work-no play tendency can be set aside, this lunar type reveals itself a delightful and witty partner, full of perceptive observations on the human nature.
Similar to Virgo, Moon in Capricorn focuses on goals and accomplishments, and delays pleasure, leisure, and relaxation until the task is finished. Here is a placement, who believes in work before the satisfaction of any needs, be it emotional or, physical. Thus, spontaneity, playfulness and a carefree attitude are easily eschewed.
On the contrary, they have a bent for self-denying, work-alcoholism, and discipline. Characteristics this moon relies on to achieve the material security so essential for their sense of well-being.
Attached to family, traditions, Moon in Capricorn strives to provide her loved ones with a steady, stable, and financial secure environment as a way to forge emotional bonds with them.
Their realistic and practical nature often creates a shell of aloofness, coldness, to negate the more sensitive and nuanced sides of relationships and feelings. This crustiness finds its roots in this moon’s tendency for pessimism, and depression. In other words, they experience difficulties in letting go and have a deep reluctance to venture outside the tried-and-true ways of doing things.
Despite their shortcomings, Moon in Capricorn people set for the long haul, once they commit to a relationship and their dedication to a partner will be enduring and trustworthy.
