The fuel of fiery self-assertion is reflected in a personality which has an emotional need for stability and to conserve one’s resources, as to be prepared for and equal to the challenges that identity development brings.
Element wise, we have a combination of fire and earth. Concerning modalities, the initiating cardinal and sustaining fixed energies permeate this blend. It’s said that when we travel the zodiac, the sign that follows has the “answer” to the preceding sign.
In the case of Aries and Taurus, this provides the endurance to finish what one starts.
Aries specializes in beginnings, spearheading and enterprising, while Taurus provides a structure and creates value out of what was initiated.
With this blend, one must seek out opportunities to test one’s courage and intestinal fortitude. In most cases, this consists of taking a variety of risks. Simultaneously, the developmental tools to curb impulsiveness and provide the necessary calculations are firmly in place.
It’s important to note that fear can be healthy in some instances as long as one’s capacity for action doesn’t become immobilized allowing paralysis or unhealthy inertia, based on complacency to prevail.

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.
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.
To be precisely who and what you are without fear, doubt or trepidation is a major part of your life’s work. As we examine your Sun/Moon blend, we realize that you require those experiences which activate your courage and self-assertion. Deep down inside there’s a feeling of wanting to be “on top”. In fact, the adrenaline rush that comes with testing yourself is a form of nutrition. Warrior-hood is embedded in your emotional framework, and it’s important to generate that part of you without thinking that the “product” has to be finished even before it starts.
With a Virgo Sun and Aries Moon, the work of personal improvement is done through resolute action and exposing oneself to challenge. When you engage life “head to head”, you actually have the opportunity to refine your mission and sharpen your steel. In your maladaptive form, the thought of initiating something brings on anxiety and you leave yourself vulnerable to being “other” directed.
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.
Within this earth laden combination, the work of creating value in one’s life is done through precision, analysis and paying attention to not only one’s external landscape, but also the emotional body. To keep serenity and peace flowing through one’s life, honest and elaborate self-checks are required.
Societally, this combination suggests one who has potential to find the perfect moments to make an impact which adds to a more streamlined and healthy functioning to whatever they touch.
In your chart, there’s a pronounced need for critical thought. You’ll find that the more you delve into it, the more solid that you’ll feel. Making the choice to address your inner critic in a forthright, no-nonsense manner is an important step which you need to take for your optimal functioning. There’s a common sense wisdom contained in this combination, which is inclined to keep life natural and pure, filtering out extraneous additives and preservatives.
Patience is well honed in your combination, as is the ability to dot all of ones I’s and cross all of one’s T’s in the name of iron-clad material security. You will need to find a way to examine your feelings about venturing into new territory when it comes to your growth.
In its maladaptive form, this sun/moon combination suggests both rigidity and a compulsion surrounding it. A possible lesson to be learned is that change and shift are part of the world we live in, and that comfort shouldn’t necessarily be viewed as a barometer of one’s progress.
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.

For those with this Sun/Moon combination, a portion of your liberation rests in taking the risk that deviating from the norm isn’t, in itself, a negative concept. In fact, the word “deviance” is simply defined as :
“The fact or state of departing from usual or accepted standards.”
For you, it can’t be stressed enough, not to confuse equality with sameness.
Your internal dialogue needs no outward sources of motivation as there is always some type of “competition” to be better, and more of what you are attempting to push itself toward fruition. The prescription for your growth comes embedded in the realization that the emotional need to battle or wage war must be constructively directed and connected to something that’s much larger than yourself.
Simultaneously, there’s the recognition that you’re nobody’s clone and a generous portion of your own flavoring must be added to all that you do. It will certainly prove helpful to analyze to what ends your rebellion serves. An honest assessment should guide you toward the tempering or intensification of your behavior. It’s worth remembering that there’s a fine line between one who skillfully questions societal convention with a definite purpose and strategy in mind and a “crackpot revolutionary”, who’s hell-bent on operating half-cocked just to prove she or he isn’t “like the rest of us.”
Being able to make the distinction between emotional engagement and emotional entanglement is a crucial step in your development. It’s essential to neutralize erroneous beliefs surrounding your ability to feel, and that feeling working to your advantage.
Passion and strength of conviction are specific and necessary instruments of power and reflectors needed in your personality to accomplish your work of radical change and emancipation of self and others.
When Taurus and Sagittarius combine in the solar and lunar realms, the phrase “knowledge is wealth” immediately comes to mind.
Building an economy of knowledge and creating value through understanding are two of the major life tasks for those with these placements. By expanding one’s lens of perception and encouraging others to do the same, one is able to gain confidence in operating in the world while enjoying its “simple pleasures.”
The fuel of security that sustains one’s vitality is reflected through a personality which has an emotional need to guide, teach and create avenues of telescopic vision.
Through making things “bigger”, one’s senses become gratified, one sight becomes clearer, and one’s internal growth becomes an accurate barometer of things going “according to plan.” This development also opens up pathways for tangible rewards and the acquisition of possessions on a material level.
The challenges faced with this blend arise when what is uncovered in one’s personal quest for truth conflicts with an ideology which has become solidly rooted in one’s psyche.
If there’s the presumption that “truths” revealed that produce opulence are more valuable than those that force re-evaluation of our personal belief system, the struggle to fuse aspirations and emotional needs can be particularly problematic.
However, if the desire for holistic understanding is greater than the fear of leaving one’s “safe zone” , an incredible amount of personal growth can take place.
Utilizing knowledge through building a business or institution which is a testament to your patience, fortitude and “green thumb” is a fantastic use of the synthesis of these energies.
