Libra Sun, Taurus Moon

abandoned-adult-architecture-935989

For many of us, moments of true equilibrium don’t necessarily occur as often as we would like. In fact, we may even find them to be a bit elusive. It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that there’s often a common human tendency to either be looking BACK, embroiled in the gut-wrenching regret or heartfelt nostalgia of PAST events, or gazing far into the FUTURE with wide-eyed idealism or trepidation and uncertainty.

Your Sun-Moon blend highlights the possibility of a silver lining for you: the potential to look straight ahead and be firmly planted in the NOW, with the capacity to extract beauty from, and experience serenity in the most basic aspects of life.

Within you, there’s a suggestion of a grounded and unruffled foundation which combines with a social intelligence and refinement. There’s a knack for executing sheer appreciation for the moment, and also the confidence that, when that moment has elapsed, there’s one right behind it which can be appreciated just as fully.

You gain a deep satisfaction from an inner certainty that your life is being built with the intent of acquiring and increasing the scope of your spiritual and material resources. However, what was once a fertile wellspring of contentment can turn into a rigid and obstinate struggle for security if you become too attached to possessing, or possibly “trapping” what you enjoy.

Your personal relationships are an area of life where you must employ flexibility, accepting the ebbs and flows which come with the terrain. Rather than viewing change as an undermining of your basic sense of security, a more constructive approach may be to conceptualize its lucrative possibilities.

Your capacity to assert yourself for the sake of self-interest and the cultivation of your senses which extend beyond the immediately observable are tools which you’re going to want to develop. In all of your physicality, you’re meant to tap into every faculty, which will lead to the unfolding of a more complete human being.

A major lesson in your evolution is to recognize that everyone doesn’t play the game of life by the same rules. While you may bask in your mastery of the pleasure principle, others may major in potting and scheming. Some interactions may produce more confrontation and tension than you would like, or are used to, but your potential for endurance and common sense diplomacy are in your toolbox waiting to be utilized.

Pisces Sun, Cancer Moon : “Flow”

BlogImage

For this combination, the importance of nourishment derived from interior energies is as vital as the air we breathe.

After all, that’s the fuel you depend on to sustain yourself through everyday interactions with the world at large. Regular intervals of solitude are more a necessity than an indulgence, as they help you recharge your battery and clarify emotions. Behind closed doors, in the privacy of your heart is where you may experience a vivid spectrum of feelings from joy and elation to anger and grief. You regard your fortress of solitude as your “safe space”.

The potential exists to discover your true spiritual aspirations via the nurturing of your center. Authentic security is the “launching pad” which breathes life into a colorful imagination and an identity which is able to convey the language of idealism.

Your adaptability can serve you as a tremendous asset, as it’s possible to  adjust to the shape of the myriad of “containers” that your presented within your life sphere.

Gifted with an internal GPS (Global Perception System), you’re adept at translating mere words into the realm of emotional linguistics. A finely crafted antennae for soaking up mood and atmosphere is your birthright.

On a regular basis, You will undoubtedly be challenged to pull yourself out of your subjective “shell” and realize that just because you feel a certain way about a particular person, issue or situation doesn’t mean the entire world shares your sentiments. There’s something to be said for incorporating a measure of  detachment in your personal affairs.

One of your most prominent life lessons is that everything doesn’t require, or even deserve the same level of emotional involvement.  Healthy integration surfaces when you’re able to discern the flow of input and output needed and refine it to suit your interests.

You possess the capability of catapulting unconditional love  and acceptance to new heights, welcoming those who are deserving into your “family” or inner circle with open arms once they’ve passed your litmus test.

In your world, it’s only right that the vulnerability displayed on your part be accepted by others as a rich and rewarding gift. Instinctively, you hope that the recipient(s) will meet your desires with equal intensity. If not, the results won’t be so pretty.

At worst, you can resign yourself to the status of a brooding victim, or the “walking wounded”. You can become so engulfed in both legitimate past hurts and imagined slights that you delude yourself.

A futile search is launched for someone or something outside the self to rectify your internal situation. You start looking for the next big thing to latch on to as a means of escape from the realities you’ve yet to confront.

Consider finding a functional and constructive channel to provide an outlet for your deep feelings and artistic inclinations. Often, it can exist in the form of service which heals. Helping others to navigate the areas which activate their fears and insecurities. When it comes to this terrain you’re far from a novice.

Sagittarius Sun, Cancer Moon: “Travellin’ Man”

Your path to higher knowledge has the potential to be realized via your genuine emotional connections with others.

Through exhibiting  your capacity for warmth and nurturing, you’re able to serve as a sensitive teacher. An individual which creates avenues of intimate trust in order to disseminate wisdom gained through experience.

The natal placement of the Sun in Sagittarius suggests that the fuel which ignites your life force and sustains vitality is comprised of the freedom to explore and travel spiritually, intellectually and physically.

To shoot arrows of broad and free flying thought into the universe, asking the large scale questions which surround life’s meaning and illicit a panoramic search for truth.

You can span the globe by plane and or indulge yourself  in “foreign” ways of thinking, philosophies and belief systems, with the hope of broadening one’s scope on life to form a more eclectic and comprehensive world view.

The Sagittarian fuel is used by the Cancerian Moon  to reflect a personality form in which emotional security is a primary need.

In this case, emotional security is defined as :

a peaceful existence and a measure of stability in one’s feelings. The feeling safety which results from an environment which is supportive and non-threatening. Also, one which encourages open displays of love, affection and care.

With this Sun/Moon blend, not only is it important that you feelings be honored and respected, but also, your opinions and philosophical outlook. You must be supported in your quest to ask the large scale questions about the workings of the universe.

The placement of the Moon in Cancer suggests that fulfillment of your life potential resides in forging sincere, heartfelt alliances.

Forming bonds with a biological or ideological “family” which will allow you to display your potential gifts of emotional intelligence, acute intuition, and depth of feeling.

This blend has the potential to work well in that:

the gentle Cancer approach refines the strong thrust of Sagittarian intellect and also opens its channels to understand subtle undercurrents which can permeate one’s environment.

Conversely, the Sagittarian penchant for expansion provides a solid balance to the introverted energies of Cancer, which allows one to display what’s contained “in the shell” in a more outward fashion when necessary.

Astrologer Grant Lewi on the Sagittarius Sun, Cancer Moon Blend :

“This is a highly intuitive, poetic, and sensitive position with an adaptability that  makes it possible for you to use your abilities in almost any field that you want to. Whether you select a business, professional or artistic career, you are likely to master and understand it.  

You are capable of broad abstractions of thought- and of understanding details of philosophy- and hard business sense. When you are thinking clearly you can see through anyone or anything.”

“In all things -studies, business, love, ideas, philosophies- you should seek for depth rather than distance. In business, seek soundness rather than brilliance; in creation as in the arts, quality rather than quantity; in love, concentration rather than variety.

You will find the the reward of your great abilities and your high ideology directly in proportion as you concentrate and refuse to scatter your energies.”

Sagittarius, ruled by Jupiter, has the potential to elevate whatever it comes in contact with, and the lunar energies, as exhibited by Cancer, are no exception.  One could say that the qualities associated with the Moon could be brought to the pinnacle of their potential, or exaggerated and distorted beyond belief.

With a sincere, straight shooting arrow, you can find the ultimate freedom in allowing your feelings to flow. This includes allowing yourself to be vulnerable in letting others know just how much they mean to you.

Through a wide ranging mind and rich faculties of imagination, painting a picture which motivates the spirit and stirs the fires of the heart is something you can do if you’re willing to aspire to understand the emotional framework of others as well as seek to reveal your sweet, tender  interior underneath your solid covering.

It’s essential that you recognize and become well acquainted with the archetypal feminine (yin) energies which occupy your heart center, as they relate to the expression of the yang. This applies to both Women and Men alike, as the “masculine” and “feminine” are determined not by an absolute, but rather by a relative predominance of one set of characteristics over the other.

By way of the Cancer archetype, your Sagittarian energy can radiate throughout the grandeur of the cosmos.

Earth and radiance.

Your “shine” is created through the recognition and harnessing of your inner value. Until you’re able to explore in all of its facets, what you’re worth, your personal projection ceases to generate the heat and light you aspire to.

Recognition, admiration and attention as a regal being ignites your spirit. Ideally this status is for the purposes of illuminating the potential in others as well as yourself, and allowing your expression to be a gift which emits rays of creativity than one that blinds with an inflated ego.

Building yourself up is essential, but the question remains as to how you’ll share what you’ve gathered with the larger collective.  Delving deeper into your feelings and curbing the impulse to accept them at face value is something which can benefit you.

The ability to burn away any material which causes inertia, rigidity or an one dimensional outlook is your friend. Understand that you can simultaneously maintain fixity of purpose and accept your ever changing, unfolding nature of becoming.

Aquarius Sun, Leo Moon : “I Get Out”

” We will discover the nature of our particular genius when we stop trying to conform to our own or to other people’s models, learn to be ourselves, and allow our natural channel to open.”
-Shakti Gawain

When the combination of the Sun in Aquarius and the Moon in Leo is contained in a birth chart, a quest toward a sense of personal authenticity coupled with the need to creatively express one’s true individuality, and receive validation for their essential identity, emerge as major themes.

All of us have a niche, or a thumbscrew. An ability or talent which we can cultivate within ourselves and excel at like no one in this entire world. After these gifts have been strengthened and refined internally, there comes a stage when it’s time to share them with the outside world for our own benefit as well as that of the masses.

If we’re not connected to our Sun sign, our vitality suffersIn our birth chart, the Sun symbolizes our life force and our gravitational center. If the light isn’t being used, the all of the other planets within the chart hold the possibility of remaining obscure and in the dark.

The Sun’s symbol is a simple, yet exceedingly profound one. A circle with a dot in the center. The circle illustrates the vast, infinite quality of the universe and the dot symbolizes the place that we carve out for ourselves in the cosmos. The specifics are up to us.

Our life energy and what fuels us are represented by the Sun.Ultimately, if we’re going to legitimately share our light with the world, we must be true to our Sun sign.

The Sun in Aquarius suggests that the type fuel needed to assist your engine in running at maximum capacity consists of having the freedom to “pour out water” which contains a revolutionary, reformist energy.

Change and new ideas are the stimulus which activate your being. Embracing and developing your uniqueness and living on your own terms without feeling that there’s always some “authority” in the midst to whom you must conform keeps your juices flowing. If there’s a trend or standard, it’s going to be set by YOU.

Enter the Moon.

The Moon doesn’t possess it’s own light, rather it’s a reflection of the Sun. This applies both astronomically as well as symbolically.

The Moon in Leo borrows the Aquarian Sun’s light and energy in order to create a personality form. The lunar needs are then expressed through the individual.

What nourishes a Leo Moon?  Recognition and validation of the unique self. Honor, praise
and acceptance of the person they’ve become. Royalty dwells within the spirit of the Moon in Leo and in order to be fulfilled, they require this acknowledgement on some level.

One of the keys to integrating this combination is to artfully maintain and preserve that genuine place within your heart where you store your uniqueness, while simultaneously offering it as a gift to free humanity from it’s self-imposed limits. THAT’s a win-win.

Libra Sun, Sagittarius Moon

The combination of a Libra Sun and Sagittarius Moon suggests that your utmost aspirations and emotional needs center around learning valuable lessons from interpersonal and intimate relationships.

You may find that you have traveled far and wide, either mentally, or physically to discover the meaning behind why you’ve been “linked” to others.

You’re fueled by the dynamic between how you see yourself and society’s view of you. While you ultimately seek to be a beacon of light for harmony and peaceful interaction, your heart’s desire is to have your life philosophies taken seriously and your opinions respected.

It’s essential that you undertake an exploration of how all of the pieces fit together in the jigsaw puzzle that’s your existence. You need to ponder deeply and ask the questions which bring you closer to understanding or explaining the order of your micro universe as well as the larger one. You could even go as far as to say you’re fulfilled by fusing the two.

It nourishes you to find a certain synchronicity in your triumphs as well as your mistakes. Doing that helps you to be all the better. Part of your life’s quest is to smooth and refine your inherent wisdom with the humility and awareness that we’re all in this world together. Additionally, you’re here to expand your emotional parameters, giving way to a broader range of expression which ultimately leads to a greater sense of freedom.

Be aware that it’s to your detriment to become too immersed in the opinions of other people as a focal navigational strategy for your life. To consider is one thing, but to allow yourself to be driven or controlled by the words, limitations or fears of others can restrict your vision and put clamps on your philosophical framework.

 

 

Aries Sun, Libra Moon

The blending of the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Libra is fundamentally illustrative of the need to integrate the dynamics of the assertion of individuality and harmonious social relations. The natural opposition, or complimentary force between the signs calls for awareness of ourselves and the other.

With an Aries Sun, the person’s essential life energy and stimulus consists of thrusting the identity into the world with force and distinguishing the self as an individual, distinct from the herd,asserting and claiming themselves as number one in their chosen field of endeavor.

This solar placement suggests an initiating quality which can manifest behaviorally in the form of dynamic, courageous and empowering leadership when operating on a functional level. The Sun in Aries potential centers around the drive to leap forward into action and using their strength to defeat any impediments which may be present.

 

When operating dysfunctionally, the Aries Sun can manifest as someone who’s so vitally “alive” that they think they’re the ONLY one’s alive. The overfunctioning of the ego serves to alienate those who might otherwise be allies.

The Libra Moon uses the Sun’s light to reflect a personality whose nourishment depends on balancing self-approval with social appreciation. Where the Aries Sun is focused on self, the Libra Moon’s orientation is toward others, with a tendency to evaluate themselves from the observer’s point of view. Cooperation, social relatedness and the joining of forces toward a common goal are some of the emotional needs suggested by a Libra Moon.

 

When  the Moon’s placement in Libra is operating dysfunctionally, the individual OVER relates to others. He or she becomes confused about who they are outside of their relationships. There may be a ‘peace at all costs” philosophy at work where the person suppresses their identity in favor of amicable relations. However, this set up ultimately leaves the door open for animosity to creep in causing an eruption of epic proportions. The very dynamic which was trying to be avoided through accommodating behavior has now been created because the individual wanted to be seen as “fair” and “good”.

 Navigating the balance point between the assertion of self as a separate entity and the recognition of how that impacts our relations with other people is the key to constructively integrating this Sun-Moon blendTo have confidence that we can simultaneously claim our individual selfhood and relate as equals to our fellow human beings is essential.

Leo Sun, Pisces Moon : “The Creator”

You were born to stick out, but maybe not for the reasons that immediately come to mind.  The simple fluidity of your natural personality can poeticize an already dramatic flair for self-presentation.

Gaining attention from others fuels your vitality. To be accepted and validated for just being you assists in your aspiring to greater heights, and also experiencing a oneness with the universe. However, it’s paramount that you don’t get so caught up in playing a role that you lose sight of what feeds you: connecting to spiritual source.

What you need is feelings of inner peace. this comes through nurturing your empathy, which is the desire to identify with the thoughts and feelings of others so you’ll know exactly where to radiate your light of inspiration.

Your confidence gradually increases when you feel like you’re uplifting humanity and bridging divisions. Your aspirations of self-actualization have the opportunity to shine most visibly through the recognition of the things which unite human beings rather than what keeps us at odds. Through this process, you’re achieving a more comprehensive understanding of what makes you happy in the intangible sense.

One of the dysfunctional and psychologically disordered manifestations of this combinations is getting high on other’s seeming admiration. Emotional intoxication as a gateway to grandiose ego inflation.

In essence, you’re a CREATOR.

Taurus Sun, Scorpio Moon : “It’s Magic”

zodiac91

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.

Within this combination, social and creative intelligence form an iron clad coalition. Merging oneself with the intangible realms of life via artistic channels of self-reflection is the gateway to balancing one’s identity. This sun-moon blend suggests that to feel “alive” and maintain vitality, one’s concerns should be directed toward the development of intuition and interpersonal savvy.

You shine in the realm of being interested in others and it reflects through a personality which holds peace and idealism in high esteem.

With aesthetic sensitivity and creative imagination as your handmaidens, people feel understood intellectually as well as emotionally in your presence. It’s as if you’ve slid right under your skin and started gently peeling away at the inner layers.

As a result of your tremendous fluency in the languages of the head and heart, your challenge will be to maintain who you are without becoming submerged in the “skin” of others.

Objectivity and empathy can serve you consistently as strengths if you can listen with an open heart and seek to understand, resisting the inclination to provide unsolicited evaluations.

Seek to sincerely connect in order to open the pathway to deeper. more meaningful dialogue with others.

In the sphere of intimate relationships, there’s an emphasis on granting wishes and fulfilling fantasies.

To have your love feeling “full” in mind, heart and spirit is the goal, along with idealistic hopes that an unspoken reciprocation will be soon to follow.

You will no doubt be faced with the dilemma of how to keep your union “polished” when the luster inevitably fades; of stoking the fire when the heat dissipates. Have confidence in your enormous charm, mammoth imagination and your capacity to meet one halfway and they will not fail you.
