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.
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.
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.
