Freedom and passion.

Not at all an unlikely pairing of needs . However, one could easily see how there could be a challenge to integrate both when involved with another individual.

The two needs would definitely have to negotiate with one another and come to a reasonable agreement . At least for that moment, or day in time.

Let’s  explore for a moment how this blend of a Sagittarius Sun and Scorpio Moon could make a lifetime out of fusing the breadth and depth which is implied by these two requirements.

With the Sun in Sagittarius, the quest to unearth a truth which will highlight the vast cosmic order and provide you with an ever broadening life philosophy is what fuels you.

The adventures of intellectual influencehaving a profound effect on the way others thinkteaching, acquiring knowledge and wisdom and obtaining the foresight to predict outcomes based on what you’ve learned serves as a stimulus for your life energy.

Your Scorpio Moon borrows your shine and reflects it back creating a personality which needs to go deep.

Your reigning needs consist of a necessity to feel life’s experiences at their most profound levels. Piercing and penetrating the veils and leaving the surface levels of existence in the dust.

You’re nourished by immersing yourself in the transformative fires of conflict and intimacy so that you may emerge reborn, wiser and more powerful.

Once a Sagittarian has been bitten by the bug of truth, he or she can’t be stopped. In a style filled with missionary zeal, they aim their arrow at their targets straight and true hoping to capture what they need until their next quest.

This life thrust blends with the energy of the lunar Scorpion, who concentrates his/her emotional reserves in a very private and strategic way only to be released when it’s appropriate. So, whether you possess this planetary placement or you’re close to someone who does. Your secrets are safe.

Virgo Sun, Scorpio Moon

Ralph Waldo Emerson once remarked: “If we live truly, we shall see truly.”  Such a sentiment is vividly illustrated in the Virgo/Scorpio Sun/Moon blend.

To become self-actualized as the ultimate “efficiency expert” and a useful servant to humanity, it’s essential that you purge the toxins which have accumulated in your heart;  eliminating emotional responses which are obsolete and no longer serve you.

The precision of your perception can split hairs. Within you, boils an innate desire to improve anything you come into contact with, focusing on how it may operate more skillfully.

If conscious attention and effort is applied to recognition and development your talents, the skills are present to leave this world much better than you found it, and you should never forget the fact that THIS STARTS WITH AND INCLUDES YOU.

Think of yourself as a jigsaw puzzle which you constantly take apart, but it becomes less tedious and more natural to reassemble every time you do it. Although it may seem like a “trial by fire”, understanding the way you tick at your deepest, most ‘raw” level is how you feed yourself. When you clean out the clutter, starting at the root,  you prosper.

Libra Sun, Scorpio Moon: Value in The Shadow

“One does not become enlightened by imagining light, but by making the dark conscious.”-  Carl Jung

In many households, when we’re growing up, it’s not too much time that passes by before we get our first talk about “manners”. We’re lectured about their importance and how vital it is for us to be “nice” and polite and on our “best behavior”.  In fact, we spend a large portion of our lives using these mantras as a navigational tool and reap the external rewards in the process for being presentable individuals by all accounts.

However, as time goes on and we start having to deal with emotional discomfort, or issues which induce some form of turmoil in our internal life, we suddenly feel ill equipped and unbalanced. As if our education had been incomplete. The lectures we received forgot some VERY important parts. What happened to that talk on emotional honesty? Or, that advice about confronting the elements of our shadow self?

At that point, we realize that Samuel L. Jackson was dead on in the movie “Juice” when he said:

” Just because you pour syrup on shit doesn’t make it pancakes.”

As wild as it may seem, this is one of the most vital lessons to be learned by the Libra Sun, Scorpio Moon combination.

In an individual birth chart, when the Sun is in Libra and the Moon is in Scorpio, participating in the balancing act which weighs one’s self-acceptance against public perception as a kind, cordial and socially acceptable individual fuels one’s vitality. This inner harmony has the potential to be achieved through plumbing the depths of one’s emotional life. Through a personality which faces subconscious fears though gut-level honesty which has resulted from an intimate relationship with the heart.

The Venusian flavored energy seeks equilibrium. It wants nothing more than to reach out, relate and create beauty in the world. The Libra archetype is connected to a keen social and interpersonal intelligence.  When blended with the watery desires of the Scorpionic Moon, it suggests that honoring the synthesis of internal and external intelligences is the most effective route to creating said balance.

Howard Gardner explains in his book, “Frames of Mind” :

“On the one side, there is the development of the internal aspects of a person. The core capacity at work here is access to one’s own feeling life-one’s range of affects or emotions: the capacity instantly to effect discriminations among these feelings and, eventually, to label them, to enmesh them in symbolic codes, to draw upon them as a means of understanding and guiding ones behavior.

In its most primitive form, the intrapersonal intelligence amounts to little more than the capacity to distinguish a feeling of pleasure from one of pain and, on the basis of such discrimination to become more involved in or to withdraw from a situation. At its most advanced level, intrapersonal knowledge allows one to detect and to symbolize complex and highly differentiated sets of feelings.”

“The other personal intelligence turns outward, to other individuals. The core capacity here is the ability to notice and make distinctions among other individuals and, in particular, among their moods, temperments. motivations and intentions.”

The challenge in fusing these two variants of personal intelligence stems from one’s willingness to accept the emotional realities inherent in facing one’s shadow, which often leave us disturbed or unsettled.

When operating dysfunctionally, a person with this Sun/Moon blend comfortably points to  “those people out there” projecting what they repress, and refusing to dig within their own psyche out of fear that what they’ll find won’t enhance the ego’s view of the self. After all, “it’s not popular to work with this type of material and I’ve been getting rewarded for being such a “good” person for all of my life.” they say…..

However, the refusal to engage in psychic and emotional nudity which can only be developed from an intimately honest relationship with the self,  limits our existence. In this case,, fears keep us from being fully alive; from passionate engagement with the full range of human experience.

If one is only willing to consider the portions of themselves they deem acceptable,  they’re skillfully constructing an emotional straitjacket by adopting “roles” which limit their human potential as well as their capacity for authenticity.

A constructive picture of this Sun Moon blend looks like an individual who summons the courage within themselves to examine complex elements of their shadow. They realize that just because society accepts them, it doesn’t eliminate repressed elements, and until THEY accept them, they will linger like layered makeup.

This person digs deep to redirect the energy which COULD be spent in presenting an “acceptable” front , to other aspects of their lives which capture their passion and fuel their life force.

Through integrating the dark, a greater light is revealed.

Taurus Sun, Scorpio Moon

You have the potential to be a “practical magician”. The pep in your step and the glide in your stride is maintained through the continuous creation and attraction of beauty via the skillful utilization of your senses.

For you, there’s a certain comfort in familiarity, but it need not be to the point of stagnation or inertia. Keep in mind that your ultimate desire and nourishment lies in plumbing the depths and mysteries of the human heart and psyche.

Think “butterflies and demons”… yeah – that’s the visual. When you face your own monsters, you’re able to harness an inner peace akin to these picturesque, free flying and tranquil creatures. Your life unfolds as a continuous navigation between “face value” and unearthing the jewels contained in the mystical underworld of human refuse.

Through the incessant investigation of your innermost regions, a certain strength can emerge. A steadiness of character with a rock solid framework, who’s open to building wealth in all dimensions: mental, economic, emotional and spiritual. You may even discover that in one way or another, you stand to gain materially through your desire to discover what makes others tick.

Successful navigation of this blend allows you to simultaneously understand the basic desires of others as well as instinctively tune into deeper motivations, and WOE to those who cast you off as a “simpleton” without psychological sophistication.

Although you may display the facial expressions of an immovable object, below the surface, intensity boils and passion pulsates. You have a knack for recognizing worth which transcends dollars and cents.

Capricorn Sun, Scorpio Moon

In an individual birth chart, when the Sun is in Capricorn and the Moon in Scorpio, there’s the potential unfolding of an authoritative administrator in the material world synthesized with an emotional strategist. This combination suggests that playing the cards close to the vest is the order of the day.

There’s an astute way in which adversity, crisis and danger can be faced, both as an unflappable stoic and a reliable “rock”. The challenge with this combination is to keep the channels of flow and experience open, as not to become too tightly bound with rigid  and static controls which can lead to repressed elements, which may emerge as projections on others.

The optimal type of fuel for this individual to operate on is one of ever increasing opportunities to achieve status and become recognized for hard work and ambition; to embark on developmental tasks which lead to the concretization of ideals.

This fuel is blended with a personality form which needs to plumb the depths of it’s emotional body; to grasp its interior world and psyche at very profound levels with the hopes of severely minimizing superficial experiences.
