Tough Love: Lessons from the Waning Gibbous Moon in Capricorn

Waning Gibbous Moon in Capricorn

Today’s waning Moon in Capricorn calls us to fortify the foundations of our lives.

Sitting opposite Cancer, the Moon’s soft and nurturing home, Capricorn symbolises the structures that hold us, and the edges keeping us contained. It’s an axis of protection, sustainment and love. And although polar opposites – Cancer is where la Luna belongs, yet in Capricorn she’s in her detriment – both these signs have the same motivation.

Like mother and father, their goal is for the cosmic child to thrive.

… and that means YOU.

Waning gibbous Moon in Capricorn

Symbolized by the steadfast mountain goat, Capricorn compels us to climb higher. Under the waning Moon’s influence, this ascension strips away the excess, leaving only the bare bones behind.

This waning Moon asks us to turn towards discipline, responsibility, and long-term planning. Today, take just a moment to ask yourself:

  • Where are you being frivolous?
  • Where are you leaking your life force?
  • Where are you giving away too much of your power?

Capricorn Moons can have a serious tone, but what they offer is often a lesson in tough love.

The waning gibbous Moon calls for honesty, clarity and realism. In Capricorn, emotions usually take second place, so the inner questioning becomes more about logic, and less about how it feels.

This is a great Moon for strategy

In a world often obsessed with rapid consumption and instant gratification, the Moon in Capricorn offers a sensible contrast. It is an invitation to slow down and deliberate on each step you are taking towards your ambitions.

It’s an opportunity to architect our futures with intention and precision, ensuring the structures you are operating within are robust and aligned with our truest intentions.

And if they’re not? The stickiness will show up.

Much like the hidden strength of the Dark Goddess, the power of a waning Capricorn Moon is not to be underestimated or commodified. Use her influence to examine, strip back, and strengthen.

  • What can you let go of?
  • What is weighing you down?

If you were a mountain explorer, carrying your work and systems in a back on your back, what isn’t earning it’s place?

As you consicously align with this powerful Capricornian energy today, and invite the Moon’s gaze into your architecture of your life, the ritual of becoming is allowed to flow.

(It’s a paradox, isn’t it? But structure and systems really DO create freedom and flow).

Wishing you well on today’s Capricorn Moon.
