Leo Sun, Gemini Moon

adult-afro-beautiful-157907

Showmanship. The Gift of gab. Big talk- and the demonstration to back it up with action. Or, the king or queen of blowing “hot air”.

Your life energy is connected to being your own authority and ruling your own roost, and it connects with a need for mental stimulation and diversity of experience.

Also, you’re nourished by cleverness and adaptability to life’s changing situations. You know just what to say, and HOW to say it with flair to set the hearts of people on fire.

You possess the potential to be the “star of many shows” and can gain the ability to exude an air of confidence in a myriad of life directions.

if your ego is not regulated, it can result in a fragmented identity or lack of wholeness where you find yourself only being able to function within the narrow confines of very specific and “boxed” in contexts. If this is the case, chances are: you’ve been trapped in grandiosity.

Your potentials for personal charisma are reflected in a personality that’s at home with dexterity. When operating at optimum level, you can stir the masses with verbal panache and cutting witticisms.

However, your leadership must not simply point the way, or give glib lip service, it must also leave an imprint on every piece of ground, for all to see, so everyone will know you walked that way.

Sagittarius Sun, Gemini Moon : “Whirlwind Thru Cities”

administration-architecture-attractions-433935

A number of years back, a film was made by HBO on the infamous boxing promoter, Don King. Mr. King was played by Ving Rhames. One of the things I’ll always remember was the completely Sagittarian philosophy King was portrayed as displaying toward the contracts of his boxers when promoting his fights : “just sign by the X and we’ll fill in the details later !!!” He exclaimed.

This leads us into the land of the Gemini-Sagittarius polarity.

In a birth chart, when the Sun is placed in Sagittarius, the core energy which provides stimulus to the individual consists of broadening the identity and worldview via physical and intellectual questing. It’s a necessity to view life from the widest frame of reference.

Psychologically, the archer is driven by the pursuit of an all encompassing truth and philosophy which provides clues to the grand cosmic design of which we’re all a part.

A thirst for knowledge and search for meaning which enlists the archetypes of the Wise Woman/Man, Visionary, Philosopher, Prophet and Teacher of High Wisdom pervades the heart of the centaur’s life force.

The Moon in Gemini uses the energy of the Sun to reflect forth an individual whose personality needs consist of the diversification of thought, social adaptability and a constant flow of mental discourse and the sharing of ideas.

This Sun-Moon blend illustrates the Sagittarian potential for synthesis of the whole along with Gemini’s possibilities in the adroit analysis of the parts. Where the energy of Gemini classifies, labels and categorizes, Sagittarius theorizes and creates more comprehensive systems of thought.

The dysfunctional expression of this Sun-Moon combination can manifest behaviorally as an individual who, amidst the excitement of their new enlightenment, proclaims that they’ve discovered the ONE and ONLY truth which applies to everything. 

Consequently a tremendous amount of time and energy is now spent trying to “convince and convert” others to their worldview while dismissing other findings of truth as being invalid and overlooking important details in the process.

Conversely, One can also become lost in the process of isolating selected pieces of information or the collection of data, never making the transition to a broader spectrum of knowledge and wisdom.

A constructive synthesis of this Sun-Moon combination consists of developing the capacity to grasp the magic of thinking big, while holding simultaneous awareness that “the devil is in the details”. Making room for youthful curiosity and wonderment to acknowledge the myriad of truths which exist within our vast universe.

Capricorn Sun, Gemini Moon: “Mental Stamina”

blurred-background-book-daylight-936133

“Thoughts are things, so we find that different kinds of thoughts become different kinds of things. Thought is always creative; it must always create after its own type. It must always give form to something, and the something to which it gives form is not a thing of itself because the thought that creates the form is the product of the thinker. The thinker comes first, then the thought, and then the form.”

-Ernest Holmes 

To many of us, how the thought world operates is somewhat elusive. We may view the material manifestation of events and circumstances as purely “happenstance” or find some other type of rationalization as to why things are the way they are.

There are many alternate ways of considering how the world around us works, and this is one of the life tasks or missions of the Capricorn Sun, Gemini Moon individual:

to embrace a insatiable curiosity and multi-faceted inquiry regarding the manner in which your personal thought and concept selection influences your reality.

This Sun/Moon blend suggests that one has the potential for self-mastery and authority through diversifying life experiences and exposure to a multitude of viewpoints and perspectives. In addition to the contact with variety, one also needs to recognize, confront and navigate the duality that presents itself within ideas you choose to explore.

The fuel which Capricorn requires to function optimally is strategic and administrative. Devising a system of progressive steps to reach a desired goal or “bottom line.”  The solar light is reflected by a personality that has the need for choices and variation. The individual is fulfilled through variation and the absence of monotony.

The questions which come from this combination center around results; what’s visible as a demonstration of one’s mental abilities. The ultimate goal is to structure one’s life-force through the use of the intellect, adaptability and the capacity to build structures that last.

A dysfunctional expression of this combination is one who lacks discipline and focus.

There’s a distinct difference between having a variety of legitimate interests and only sticking with something until the euphoric newness wears off and then flitting to the next thing which captures your momentary attention.

In this case, “so many interests” may be used as a smokescreen for actually getting down to work; to facing the internal organization it takes to map out a successful game plan.

When operating effectively, there’s an establishment of a concentrative center  and stamina within the intellectual sphere. One is aware of their ability to select their thoughts, just like they do their meals or their clothes. There’s not only the realization that “garbage in equals garbage out”, but a self-appointed responsibility toward mental productivity, with the aspirations toward producing palpable success.

Gemini Sun, Cancer Moon : “Love Language”

adult-arms-blur-893891

In a birth chart of an individual, when a Gemini Sun is blended with a Cancer Moon, the type of fuel which contains diversity of thought, versatility and the navigation of duality meets the personality’s need for emotional and domestic security.
The essential stimulus which propels this person is one of constant mental stimulation and the rapid exchange of ideas.
This placement suggests that one needs to be kept “on their toes” and exposed to a consistently “fresh”, youthful and elastic outlook in their intellectual life. To be able to circulate freely as air does in open spaces is essential for the optimization of one’s life force.
The Cancer Moon, reflects the Gemini Sun’s light in the form of  a personality whose path to ultimate emotional fulfillment consists of forging intimate connections with others and solidifying bonds which will allow them the opportunity to nurture and be nurtured by others.
It’s a rare occasion that you find anything which feeds a Cancer Moon individual more than to be able to foster and support the growth of others. Not only does this warm and empathetic contribution towards sustaining development assist the person on the receiving end of the equation, it also provides a sense of security to the giver.

 

When combined, The Gemini Sun and Cancer Moon is a powerful blend of language and feeling. The potential with this combination is to fluently speak the language of the heart. To be an emotional wordsmith. Finding just the right thing to say at the appropriate time.To verbally illustrate depth of connection.

This suggests the type of individual who could be writing cards for hallmark. Someone who’s able to capitalize on their poetic expression of intimate sentiments.

The Moon in Cancer, with it’s qualities of absorption is highly attuned to the emotional stimuli contained within its environment while the Gemini Sun offers the analysis of such feelings through the clever wit and poignant observation via speech and writing. This synthesis allows one to feel a sense of relevance and importance in their own life as well as the lives of others.

When operating dysfunctionally, this sun-moon blend can suggest the scattering of emotional resources. Someone who is trying to be everywhere and nowhere at the same time; simultaneously desiring to move in one-hundred different directions and stay firmly implanted within a shell.
Astrologer Steven Arroyo writes:

“Those who are confidently centered in themselves and emotionally tranquil and content can be superbly attuned to others’ feelings and emotional needs. On the other hand, those who are at the mercy of their own moods and depressive feelings cannot rely on their intuition being accurate since often, they have lost a sense of “objective reality.”

When this sun-moon blend operates at an optimum level, the Gemini Sun assists in providing clarity for the emotional perceptions of the Cancer Moon. It could be compared to a faculty which translates the heart’s language into a dialect which can easily be comprehended.

Although you’re the type to enjoy a lighthearted “good time” and may even express your deepest feelings in the form of anecdotes,  if someone were to delve into your interior just a little bit more, they would see that it’s not all adolescent giggles and midnight games of scrabble.

You value variety, but depth is pursued in a fervent, almost “do or die” fashion. Once you get your emotional energy swirling behind a cause (especially love or lust), all bets are off.

You have the potential to relate to others with a dexterity which disarms them, but you don’t stop there. In fact, this is only a means to explore the gloss of the surface before diving into deep waters. Once you’ve arrived you like to penetrate and be penetrated : spiritually, physically, psychologically and emotionally.

One may get the idea that you’re footloose and fancy free because you seem to navigate life with such aplomb, but what they may not see unless they get extremely close to you is your craving for intensity. What people fail to understand about you is that you view sex as just one of the many vehicles that can be used to explore and solidify a deeper connection with another human being. So, your true reasons for engaging in the throes of intimacy are often at variance with what others expect.

Your psychological makeup could be compared to a burner on a stove that doesn’t turn orange when it warms up, so people try to touch you and get scorched because they had NO IDEA you were so hot.

You need your privacy, but in order to remain true to yourself, it’s important that you cultivate the ability to make your deepest needs known to others. Learning the difference between strategic self-protection and deception is part of your life’s work.

Your sword can cut both ways through verbal confrontation and strategic precisely timed action.

Aquarius Sun, Gemini Moon : “Aquemini”

Image result for black women studying

There are a multitude of ways to explore one’s uniqueness and part of your purpose for operating with this sun moon blend will be to place information you gather about how you function into a larger context to find out what really makes YOU the person that you are.

Your life’s mission isn’t supposed to be relegated to a static and cumbersome existence. You may find that you’ll have to “try on a number of hats” and embrace the continual transformation that’s taking place.

An insatiably inquiring mind, your ability to adjust to changing circumstances and a non-conformist bent are all resources which you need to tap into in order to maximize this solar/lunar connection. You’ll find that you will be able to display your capacity to awaken others most effectively when coming off of the heels of major insights about yourself and your multi-dimensionality.

With all of this “air” floating around, a concern is that you’ll concoct the most brilliant ideas, but will never use them. Or, you’ll get trapped into your head and rationalize that you’re so “ahead of your time” that others won’t understand you, or in some cases, don’t deserve to hear what you have to say.

Deep down, what you really want is appreciation for being an original thinker who doesn’t suffer from conceptual incarceration and is constantly open to a revolutionary stream of consciousness. However,  there needs to be a solid strategy for bringing form to your brilliance.

If you find yourself feeling stifled, it’s most likely because you haven’t truly allowed yourself the space which you need to circulate or made room for the truism that every second, you’re evolving into a different person.

Obsession about classifying every facet of your being can lead to stagnation of the highest order, so pull out all of the stops in figuring out what makes you tick and then compare what the various explorations are trying to tell you. Understand that this is a lifetime process and that you’re really seeking something that can’t be encompassed in the walls of hard-core definitions.

Scorpio Sun, Gemini Moon : “Investigative Reports”

Image result for Women Chess Grandmasters

A couple of weeks ago, I made the comment that many Scorpios I know would scoff at the laws contained in Robert Greene’s bestselling book “The 48 Laws of Power”.

Their reaction wouldn’t be geared so much toward the accuracy or inaccuracy of the strategies, but more so the public’s awe over tactics which are pretty much “basic” ingredients in the scorpion’s toolbox.

In writing about the Scorpio Sun/Gemini Moon blend, I’d like to call your attention specifically to law number 23: Concentrate Your Forces.

“Conserve your forces and energies by keeping them concentrated at their strongest point. You gain more by finding a rich mine and mining it deeper , than by flitting from one shallow mine to another. Intensity defeats extensity every time”

This Sun/Moon blend requires BOTH intensity AND extensity. It needs to DIG AND FLIT.

The combination of a Scorpio Sun and Gemini Moon in an individual birth chart suggests that this person is stimulated by plumbing the depths of life experience. Their core energy is geared toward investigating and penetrating their own, as well as others  motivations for living; to discover what makes them tick. Scorpio will leave no stone unturned if it means unearthing what’s hidden from the “average” person’s view.

This placement also suggests a fearlessness of the dark. The murky waters and dismal abyss which may be met along their journey is just ‘par for the course’. After all, human nature is comprised ofeverything: both light AND dark, and the “stuff scorpions hate” is when everything is buried which might be characterized as ugly, troublesome or taboo in the name of a “Leave it To Beaver” brand of existence. No… dinner isn’t going to be served promptly at 5:00 p.m. tonight. No… it’s not piping hot on the stove as Dad walks through the door. As a matter of fact, Dad may be at the Holiday Inn with his Administrative Assistant. Yeah… you get the picture.

The Moon in Gemini uses the sun’s light to reflect a personality which needs to adapt to ever changing conditions and classify the experienceDuality, diversity, ambiguity and flexibility nourish the individual with the Moon placed in Gemini.  While the core identity (sun) says: “dig deep, penetrate, probe and scrutinize”, the needs of the personality (moon) say: stretch, diversify, get out of the narrow confines of that tight space.”  After all, Gemini is an air sign and air needs to circulate. What happens when air gets closed up in a room for too long? It becomes STALE.

“Gemini moon desperately needs mental variety and learning of all kinds. But the primary challenge to them as they go through life is confronting this question: with all of these ideas and “facts” do I have any depthsof real knowledge, and with all this learning , have I gained any understanding?”

One of the keys to successful navigation of this sun/moon combination is to acknowledge the psychological need for deep investigation and interactions and the emotional need to classify the findings within a wider frame of reference. These needs must be synthesized.

There’s nothing which says we need to choose ONE all consuming passion in life. If we dig one mine deeply, who says the other mines have to be shallow? We must recognize that we’re just as capable of burnout via ”the big heave ho” as we are through trying to do too many things at once. There needs to be a friendly agreement between our capacity to both divide and concentrate our forces and apply the appropriate strategy when necessary. These two potentials need not be at war.

Within this blend, Scorpio can add depth and focus to Gemini’s sometime wayward attention span and Gemini can bring a dash of levity to Scorpio’s frequent journeys into life’s underworld.

Gemini Sun, Gemini Moon : “Think Twice”

Image result for identical twins

Ideally, your life is an intellectual whirlwind with multiple perspectives to explore and choose from. Variety of inquiry sustains you emotionally and also reflects your deepest aspirations. You feel most sane when you’re gathering information and adding to your mental database. One of the keys to remember concerning this combination is that FOCUS is your friend.

Sometimes when we explore ideas, we reach what we think is a dead-end. We find a question that we can’t answer, or run into difficult paradoxes where one thing seems to contradict another. The message to those with this blend is to THINK THROUGH IT and ALSO employ your INTUITION.

There’s a definite suggestion that your inclination could be to just hop to the next concept, issue, etc… only to discover the original one’s to resurface. You could easily run yourself in circles finding that you never really complete anything, and as a result, what you’re left with is a hodgepodge of disparate parts.

Rather than accepting the fate of mental fragmentation, understand that much of the meaning of life resides in whatever you assign to it. So, depending on any person, or institution to fuse what you’ve learned into larger concepts is futile.

Deciding what’s truly important to you and trusting insights which surface in your own heart is of utmost importance. You must not worry yourself it you haven’t yet been able to convert your findings into words yet.

An agile mind, unquenchable curiosity and knack for details are some of your strengths.

Learning is second nature, but can you gain a true perspective  which will advance your interests?

You’re already great at asking questions, so the cosmos is encouraging you to enlarge the scope of your inquiries to the level of universal significance.

Think of this process like college: just because you happen to pick a major doesn’t mean that you don’t integrate all of the other knowledge that you come into contact with.

If this journey is consciously undertaken, you”ll wake up to an entirely new world. If not, you may find yourself in the midst of information indigestion.

Gemini Sun, Libra Moon

Image result for latina woman

In an individual birth chart, when the Sun is placed in Gemini and the Moon in Libra, the person is fueled by variety of perspectives. The core life energy is geared toward quenching an almost insatiable intellectual curiosity. This consists of gathering facts, classifying information, defining and labeling with the ultimate goal of differentiation.

The Sun’s placement in Gemini suggests the the potential to express oneself with mental agility as well as strength in logical analysis.

The Libra Moon uses the Gemini Sun’s light to reflect a personality whose essential need is to balance acceptance of self with societal approval. There is an emotional need to be seen as a humane, kind and affable person. Someone who “gets along with everyone.”

Harmonious relations are what nourish the individual with the Moon in Libra. The placement suggests that if effort is applied, a considerable amount of progress can be made in building bridges and finding common ground with others.

When this Sun-Moon blend is operating dysfunctionally within a person, they have the potential to be the MASTER conflict dodger. Since the Gemini Sun’s placement suggests the life energy that surrounds verbal dexterity: a.k.a, being slick with words, and “rubbing others the wrong way” is a Libra Moon’s anathema, facing the reality that disagreements are going to happen can pose as a challenge.

Astrologer Hadyn Paul writes:

“Your need for approval may mean that you follow the group path rather than listening to your own inner promptings or your own personal needs, due to a fear of becoming ostracized or alienated from group acceptance. You need to belong, and this need is projected out onto social groupings, but perhaps the deeper need is that of owning and reflecting your whole nature.

In trying to please others and make yourself indispensable you may be repressing areas of your own nature, especially the moon qualities resulting in emotional repression and denial of your own feeling instincts.

In an attempt to minimize disharmony, Libra can tend to evade, whether inner or outer, especially those painful areas of self and life, preferring to ignore or run away from them. This is often the case where the alternative is to face up to the realities of a relationship where the need is for direct confrontation designed to resolve developing differences and for a deeper level of communication to clear the air.”

The key to using this Sun-Moon blend effectively is to develop the capacity for communicating and relating at deeper levels even though the result may not necessarily carry the breezy “lightness” that you’re used to.

Also, to use the gift of gab and social astuteness as not only vehicles to align yourself with others, but also as devices to help navigate conflict resolution rather than the wholesale avoidance of confrontation.
