What do they mean when they say that Capricorn moons have to grow up really quickly?
sma94GuestJanuary 31, 2021 at 8:26 pm
Most Capricorn placements do. I have a cap rising and I had a lot of hardships growing up. Basically had to raise myself and my disabled brother, had toxic parents, other things I’m not really going to go into, but those things made me have to grow up & mature fast. Things are starting to get a little bit easier, but I definitely fit the stereotype of having a lot of hardships early in life.

I think just being mature at a young age, and then loosening up a little as you get older.

Moon in Cap here. I feel this way, I guess. My parents were just kind of inept, so I realized sometime in elementary school that I really couldn’t trust them and that if I wanted to do or have something specific, I’d have to make it happen myself.

Cappy placements tend to step up and take responsibility when shit gets real, even if it’s at an early age.
You might think adversity causes the earlier maturity in itself, but other temperaments can be less likely to step up and pick up the slack when the pressure is on. Cappy is self-motivating.

Agree..do we have to? Or do we just tend to be more mature and therefore seem to “grow up more quickly”… if its the latter then I would agree. The former statement would have to imply other planetary elements and placements/aspects before making that assumption.

Capricorn moon here. I had to grow up quickly when my grandmother (who was more like my mother) passed away when I was 12. My mother (who is more like an older sister) didn’t have the emotional capacity to take care of me in her grief and shopping addiction.

As a non-Earth sign person (a little taurus in my 3rd house) I’d like to say that I think Capricorns and Earth signs in general just don’t get coddled the way fire water and air signs do. Capricorns always seem to be the leaders of the earth signs, so it’s no wonder that you guys feel like you had to grow up quickly. It’s not your fault that people think you are more self-capable than you might actually are, but you are a badass for rising to the challenge. capricorns need an advocate friend who will stand up with them, and stand up for them when they don’t feel like having it all together.

Capricorn Moon: I’m not sure if “have to” is the right saying. But rather, we just do.
I was an only child and was around other adults a lot, so it may have something to do with that.
I’ve just always felt old. I remember being 10 and just feeling exhausted. Like I was already over my life. (that sounds bad, I had a good life. But kind of felt like I had already done life a million times before and I was just kind of over it). I still feel this a lot.
There’s a lot of enjoyable and fun aspects in my life right now. But some mornings, I just feel an ache in me that screams that I can’t do this anymore. I’m sick of being the adult, I’m sick being responsible. I’m just done.

Do they say that? We have to grow up quickly? Or in general do we grow up quickly?

Capricorn Moon here – I was born to a 15yr old girl who was utterly incapable of caring or providing for me. My Nan stepped in but my family was riddled with alcohol & drug abuse, family violence, untreated traumas & mental illness. It was a nightmare. I knew from a very young age that I only had myself. It was me alone who had to wipe my tears, pick myself the fuck up & move forward.
I spent years begging the universe to make time move forward so that I could grow big & strong & I could take care of myself properly on my own. And now, as an adult, I spent my 20’s absolutely broken & led by my own traumas & resentments. Thanks to therapy i am finally making good healthy & functional progress.

I’m a Cap moon. My sister is a Cap Asc. When our parents got separated, we both had to parent ourselves and take care of our brother while our mom worked several jobs to keep a roof over our heads. But once I got into my mid 20s, I feel like that’s when I started to let go and allow myself to have some fun.

Cap moon here. While I didn’t have issues when it comes to parents and have wonderful ones, my social life has always been dead. So in a way, I learnt to enjoy my own company since a kid. This restricts my socializing capacity which I am trying to deal with

i have a cap moon in my 4th house. maybe because i’m the oldest sibling, and also an only child for my first 10 years, idk but i’ve always been so mature for my age. but especially in early childhood.
i was also surrounded by adults growing up, so maybe that’s got something to do with it. i am an introvert and other kids didn’t interest me for the most part.

Cap moon in vedic. (I find moon sign in vedic astrology is more accurate than western). 4th house moon. Overprotective and emotionally immature parents. They’re lovely but it gets too much.
