Aquarius Sun, Virgo Moon

AquariusSunVirgoMoon

There’s nothing like progress that you can actually measure.

This Sun/Moon combination is asking you to make this a priority.  Your overarching intention is to challenge what’s generally accepted, but it’s essential to have precise strategies and formulas for doing that. Mind you, this is for you to figure out YOUR way and this doesn’t have to be a situation of slavish imitation or riding off of the coattails of others.

For you, critical thinking, the need for improvement of self and systems and observational analysis can be employed to support the aims of the change agent.  You’re being challenged to link the mental and emotional, as both serve a function as allies when integrated.

In using this blend optimally, one must exercise the patience that’s required to examine the component parts of a system, situation or person without jumping to hasty conclusions. It must be remembered that change just for the sake of it can also be REGRESSIVE. Just because your insights are considered “radical” doesn’t automatically qualify them as being helpful unless carefully and correctly applied.

Your life purpose is enveloped in themes of utilizing refinement and intelligence to propagate and advance humanitarian ideals, which are also revolutionary in nature. Also, galvanizing groups of people to assist you in your cause(s).

The fuel which maintains your vitality is comprised of the questioning of socially implanted “authorities” in order to more fully claim your personal one. You also have an emotional need to form relationships where you can take others on that journey with you. This needs to be done strategically.

It would benefit you to think about the use of subtlety when it comes to introducing your originality to others.  Referencing Robert Greene’s law 38 in his book “The 48 Laws of Power”

“Think as you like , but behave like others”.

Greene goes on to state:

“It is far safer to blend in and nurture the common touch. Share your originality only with tolerant friends and those who are sure to appreciate your uniqueness.”

What you can learn by exploring this idea is the difference between the manner in which something is presented and the ultimate outcome it may have.

With this blend, you’re encouraged to employ futurism in your thinking. It’s important to never underestimate the power of getting your “foot in the door”. This is far more important than feeling you have to make a radical display of doing so.  Your impact can be more deeply felt on the back-end and the results you generate can then speak volumes.

Contained in this Venus/Mars combination is the potential for swift and clever mental dexterity which is illustrated by the mutable energy of Virgo and Gemini. Elementally, the practicality and common sense of earth and the curiosity and experimental bent of air are attempting to adjust to one another in a developmentally tense relationship.

In synthesis, there’s a marked efficiency in relationships which tends toward compartmentalization. One knows exactly the specific purpose that people serve in their lives. In fact, one may maintain friendships where all of the people involved rarely intersect.  For you, discrimination is simply the need to be selective in your socialization with others, always keeping the motivations of bettering one’s life and standing in mind.

Your intellect is your “sword” which cuts both ways. Its “incisions” can add important details which are vital to the success of others. Adding the enjoyment of service, you become a trusted support system that’s the epitome of reliability.

On the flip side, the same skill can be directed toward “analyzing” with the intent of criticism aimed at undermining the self-esteem and confidence of others. One may seriously want to take note of the concept of  projection here, as to remind yourself that it’s quite alright to treat yourself fairly in the midst of being a flawed human being.

There can be an over-analysis of one’s emotions which can repress or inhibit the heart function.  Irrespective of the feeling, the practice of giving oneself permission to stop and experience emotions for exactly what they are is invaluable.

Erotic urges typically begin in a cerebral fashion through stimulating debate and conversation and it’s important to know that mere physicality won’t sustain your sense of sexual excitement for long.

Life’s Mission: To create and sustain a solid sense of self through the utilization of a sacred space designed to process one’s feelings. Becoming a “rock” for oneself and serving as a “container” of physical and emotional well-being for others.

In order to use this astrological signature for constructive personal development, one must strongly consider exploring themes tied to emotional, physical and material security. Two of the ever-present questions that serve as a litmus test will be: “Can I trust it?” And “Does it feel safe?”

The fundamental lens through which you process experiences is founded on a goal of the constant deepening of your connection to life and others through relationships, while simultaneously creating and maintaining  a private inner space to ground and process the full gamut of emotions ranging from ecstatic elation to damning disappointment.

Not only does witnessing the unfolding of beauty, in the myriad of its forms and meanings feed your soul, it also serves as the type of fuel that you need to sustain your life’s work and vitality.  It’s important to consistently ask yourself: “Am I OK?”  As, being rooted in the NOW with your thoughts and feelings spurs optimal functioning.

Typically, you exude the type of presence which indicates an acute awareness of the feelings of other people as well as an innate receptiveness.  This is often misconstrued as an unabashed openness and you may be approached as such.  In cases like these, creating the proper boundaries and “owning” of energies between two people can’t be stressed enough.

Considering your elemental mix of earth and water and your temperamental synthesis of melancholic and phlegmatic, one of your reigning strengths lies in being both a “rock” and a vessel for others. Included in this box of resources is a generous offering of empathy, an unconditional listening response and the gift of vivid articulation of the language of the heart.  Because you’re able to excavate things from the often times crusty layers of the unconscious, it’s wise to staunchly protect your energy field. While others may be encouraged to lean on you, how heavily is a decision which has clear ramifications for you when it comes to your emotional health.

It also needs to be mentioned that when disordered, your private world carries the capability of being one not only of sheer serenity and pleasure, but also self-pity. One of the lessons you’re here to learn is that of identifying the differences between acknowledging, experiencing and DWELLING in your feelings. Even as a container, you require periodic release.

While it’s imperative for you to understand the “ebbs and flows of the tides”, how to  actively and consciously steer your ship from nostalgia to the now will prove to be a crucial part of navigating your psyche.

It can be easy for you to become stuck in the rut that says you must “keep it all together” for the sake of everyone else, but this is erroneous thinking.  Another growth catalyst is the recognition that living with the peace to which you aspire doesn’t equate with a disturbance free life. In fact, the very same forces that you deem as disruptive hold clues to something that needs to be corrected or adjusted in your life.

Metaphorically, if the “thud” of the burglar in our house in the middle of the night wasn’t heard or detected, there would be no sounding of the alarm, or the sense that someone wasn’t welcome. Thus, there would be no impetus to taking further action which could possibly save our lives.

You’re at your best when you confront your own disturbances and serve as a conduit to show others how to do the same. Projecting warmth and humanity, yet making the distinction as to where you end and where other people begin.

Here, we have a combination geared toward the life of the mind and the propagation of ideas. Elementally, with earth and air, there’s a researcher present which seeks practical findings and results.  The mutability of this combination suggests a penchant for adjusting oneself to changing circumstances and possibly thriving while doing so.

The potential for strength of intellect is clear.  There’s a need to pursue certain lines of thought just for the sake of satiating curiosity, while one is ultimately illuminated through analysis and that which one can measure. This has the makings of a fruitful combination if the lines of scientific thought blend well with a youthful and experimental openness.

One’s life’s work is the pulling apart of components in order to hold them to the light. This critical scrutiny is designed to assess ways in which a person, idea or system can function in a healthier, more streamlined manner.

With this blend, one’s core needs are centered around learning that comes with variety. There’s a feeling of being “at home” with dualities and competing perspectives.  Playing the role of detached observer comes naturally, but it can also bring challenges in situations where a more personal touch is needed.

In synthesis, these solar and lunar components can produce the expert linguist, where speech is refined and exact; an uncanny ability to describe, with pure precision, what one sees and experiences. It can be said that “learning is your craft”, as categorization  and classification nourish the deepest part of yourself.

It’s important to make room for a broad, overarching framework in which to place your findings. Otherwise, you could easily suffer from having ingested too much with no way to use it. Also, a gentle reminder that there’s a difference between data and people always helps, as it’s important to curb the tendency of the “white coat, lab rat” syndrome where your prize is an illusory “objectivity” , which can cost you what would otherwise be significant relationships in your life.

Your Sun/Moon combination calls for the expression of your uniqueness in a solid and tangible way. In other words, you must be about what you say you’re about.

In this combination, we see a fixed sense of purpose.  The work of personal stability is achieved through accepting one’s inner rebel with open arms.

Humanitarian pursuits emerge as an effective outlet for this massive center of energy. Being that these signs have a relationship which contains developmental tension, there’s a natural friction between the need to “roll the dice” and the tendency to hedge your bets.

Your emotional needs are of the revolutionary sort, as it’s important that you’re continuously seeking to liberate yourself from societal boxes which  you were never equipped to fit into. It’s essential that you find productive outlets for your aggression, which can build up and contribute to hair-trigger arguments with others, and more importantly- YOURSELF.

Your sense of peace is found through unflinchingly questioning the concepts that surround conformity and asking and answering the tough questions about your involvement  and how to structure your earthly existence so it TRULY belongs to you.

In this combination, there’s potential for the change agent within to produce REAL and tangible results. Your aspirations for reform have a practical bent and this aligns beautifully with your cosmic signature.

In the case of the Capricorn Sun/Pisces Moon blend, inspiration that leads to perspiration and the establishing of concrete structures is the first concept that comes to mind.

Here, we have one whose ambition and life’s work to build something that stands the test of time reflected through a personality that needs to dream and be inspired. In examining this combination, some developmental lessons to consider are: in order for “creative visualization” to be truly CREATIVE, there must eventually be something to show for it. Also, there will no doubt be times where you must keep your nose to the grindstone and climb your mountain alone, without feeling any particular brand of inspiration. The sooner you realize that life’s reality is sometimes painstaking and mundane, the better. You’re not going to be able to thrive exclusively on “good feelings” or a perpetual high.

As an extension of the same lesson, it’s important to realize that just because you’re not doing anything in particular or able to label yourself incessantly busy doesn’t mean that nothing is happening or getting accomplished. The invisible forces that permeate your life must be given space to breathe and work. For you, solitude is a necessity from both the vantage points of strategizing and an intermittent “zoning out”. However, reasonable limits must be applied for maximum effectiveness.

Because hard work fuels the engine you’re equipped with, it will always be in the picture, as will themes of patience and delayed gratification. To gracefully accept this without feeling like you’re giving up on your dreams and to also, resist wallowing in self-pity or woeful tales of sacrifice can prove to be a colossal step in your maturation process.

The developmental potential that exists in this solar/lunar combination can be realized through linking one’s emotional intelligence with their ambitions. This requires a successful navigation of one’s axis of personal security.  Through the recognition and nurturing of the full spectrum of one’s inner landscape, public recognition and status can be more effectively pursued.

One of the most crucial keys is to use feelings as an informant. While not necessarily indicating the entire picture, they are certainly a stimulus for further investigation. The greater the knowledge gained, the better your chances for being able to “make things happen” as indicated by the fuel of administration that propels your life force.

Your “education of the heart” comes in the “help me to help you” variety. For you, there’s liberation in realizing that ultimately, people are accountable for their own choices and responses to life. Your “fall back” as a reactive pattern is to use imaginary obligations as an excuse to avoid personal evolution.
