Except in the pursuit of pleasure (to which many of them can be quite dedicated) those born with the moon in an Earth sign are not emotionally spontaneous. They don't nonchalantly accept the responsibility of long-term relationships, or analyze emotional commitments merely as a mental exercise. They may hesitate to move at all unless they feel they are on solid ground, or there is some personal advantage to be gained by their emotional involvement.
As lunar Earth sign personalities, those with moon in Capricorn are of a practical nature. Though willing to fulfill responsibilities for a relationship, they are often unable or unwilling to understand what the other person actually wants or needs. Capricorn's influence on these lunar personalities is demonstrated by their tendency to worry, and their need for structure and formality. They find it hard to relate to those who do not share their opinions and values. Reluctant or unable to discuss their own problems, they are nevertheless quite willing to help with the problems of others. It is never very easy for them to express their deepest emotions, to feel relaxed and content inside themselves. Fear of rejection is strong. Anything vague or unspecified in a relationship, whether business or personal, makes them feel insecure. They must know where they stand. Everything must be proper and legal. When it comes to romance and marriage, it may take them longer to find someone they can love as well as trust.
