Scorpio Sun, Libra Moon

cap-drinking-facial-expression-1092221

Realization of your purpose as a healer at the most profound levels of existence is found through the fulfillment of internal harmony. A balanced relationship with yourself serves as support to plumb the depths of your psyche.

You have the potential to use your social and relationship building skills as a means to build bridges and suit your aspirations of transforming whatever dynamic you come into contact with.

In the case of this Sun/Moon blend, personal power can be achieved through what’s referred to in ancient Egyptian or Kemetic philosophy, as Ma’at: a moral ideal which is comprised of, but not limited to: harmony, truth, justice and right order.

“Thinking the truth, speaking the truth and living the truth.”

Making an effort to transform and perfect yourself by embodying Ma’at in thoughts, words and actions. Balancing emotion with reason, intellect and intuition, and the masculine and feminine. Synthesizing “heavenly” thought and earthly behavior.

“Ma’at is more than just a principle in which the universe is ordered.  It is also an ideology and code of social conduct.”

“A peculiar aspect of Ma’at is that it is both a moral and physical principle which applies as much to the morality of human behavior and moral justice, balance and truth as it does to physical justice, balance and truth. ”

“Ma’at  is a principle of reciprocation. In other words every action causes its like.  In the moral sense, whatever deed a person does returns to him in some form. In the physical sense, every event is the result of some other event which is in its likeness.”

The words to live by are: “Be generous as long as you live. What goes into the storehouse should come out.”

The potential lessons gained on this journey can place you in the position to  “dig for the gold.” However, you must not be afraid of the dark. To define, I’m referring to the dark as:

“That part of the personality which has been repressed for the sake of ego ideal.”

Ultimately, it’s part of your mission to live in this territory as a gateway to mending your own wounds as well as the wounds of others.

The idea of becoming a healer sounds impressive to most, but the work you’re called to do is psychologically intricate and complex. Intimate feelings are at stake and privacy must be honored. You’ll be dealing with an emotionally charged exposure of hidden and buried truth. Through your own self-disclosure, a light will be shined on you. That same light will reveal what’s trapped in others, via your piercing and penetrative insight.

You require internal equilibrium in order to manage emotional extremes. One of your reigning strengths is a shrewd sociability which allows you to see both the nice and the nasty in life situations, and if you so choose, to proceed with refined grace.

Libra Sun, Aries Moon

attractive-beautiful-beauty-1001723

Your ultimate aspirations are connected to relational concerns and the “fuel” of rapport seeking. However, in your heart beats adrenalin, and the yearning to take risks which test your courage and warrior spirit.

You’re inclined to take the direct route when it comes to pursuing your desires, and need to realize that for you to do this in a truly independent fashion, some feathers will definitely get ruffled in the process.

A fact of life is : sometimes people get upset, and they’re going to have to remain that way until they decide to stop.

Though you would much rather navigate life with diplomacy and even handedness, one of your largest lessons is: to obtain the ultimate peace that you seek, sometimes WAR is necessary.

Your Sun/Moon blend suggests  an emotional need to lead. To pioneer in some area of life. To compete for first place, whether it’s an internal or external challenge.

Your resources are summed up nicely in a line from “War Games” by O.C. and Organized Konfusion.

“guerrilla warfare tactics issue unlimited access to ammo/ with fireproof camouflage apparel.”

With your Libra Sun,the part of you which wishes to exude refinement, harmonious speech and action , while using it as a social lubricant, has the potential to quell even the most hostile of situations. Consider this your “fireproof  camouflage apparel.”

While your “ammo”, which is reflected by your Aries Moon, is your sense of bravery and willingness to participate in the trenches of interpersonal combat if need be.

Taurus Sun, Libra Moon, Sagittarius Rising

blurred-background-can-close-up-897001

Your vitality is fueled through the enjoyment of the senses and optimally, your life is experienced at an earthy and tangible level. What you can immediately and decidedly “put your hands on” serves as a reliable  barometer of authenticity.

In addition, you need to feel like everything is “right where it should be” in your life. Not so much of an exact equal balance, but like a recipe, in a proportion that pleases you and is agreeable to your life goals.  You’re nourished through an orientation to the “other”.  Rarely frightened by opposing points of view, you’re more likely to seek understanding as to use your newly discovered insights as a means to develop a more congruent self.

Your lens for processing experience is one of a teaching and learning orientation. Everything is approached in a manner which questions and seeks meaning with the goal of placing things into a larger context in order to soak up holistic understanding . You relish at the thought of life as an ever broadening  panorama. Your world is looked at telescopically and opportunities to incorporate eclecticism are frequently sought.

Establishing the type of grounding which will support a bold and fearless dive into the larger social arena is key.

Sagittarius Sun, Cancer Moon: “Travellin’ Man”

amsterdam-architecture-boat-967292

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.

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.

Sun-Uranus Aspects : “The Truth”

adult-cold-facial-expression-905247

To thine own self, be true.

Most of us have heard and read this phrase countless numbers of times. However, how many of us have stopped to actually ponder it’s meaning and deeper significance? If you have a Sun-Uranus aspect in your birth chart, part of your life’s mission is to explore this theme upside down and inside out.

Sun-Uranus aspects suggest a tremendous drive to put your unique stamp or fingerprint on everything you do. Whether it’s your signature way of brushing your teeth, the slang that you originate or a scientific breakthrough. Authenticity is of utmost importance to people with Sun-Uranus aspects. 

In fact: A portion of your path is to develop your individuality via the uprooting of conditioned behaviors, values and customs which do not serve your distinct style of evolution.

Sun- Uranus people must participate in a revolutionary act of courage which will spur their development. They must responsibly and intelligently relinquish the person they were taught to be by family, friends, and culture, and put their efforts toward becoming the person they were meant to be, complete with a genuine life philosophy which encourages their individual empowerment, devoid of societal trappings.

If the two selves are largely in alignment with one another, the act may be less shocking. However, highly functioning people with this aspect need what they’ve been taught by others to pass their litmus test before they accept and incorporate it into their lives. When Sun-Uranus aspects operate in a dysfunctional manner, nonsensical rebellion grabs center stage.

The mental faculties are no longer guided toward realization of your unique life story, but rather the desire to overcompensate and prove to everyone how widely your non-conformist capacities span. You become the type of person who refuses to admit a movie was entertaining because everyone else liked it. Or the eccentric aficionado of super, duper obscure underground hip-hop.  Becoming authentic contains its rewards as well as its responsibilities.As a Sun-Uranus person, you must use your exceptional ingenuity to create a life which honors both.

Sun-Mercury Aspects

Image result for curiosity

For those who don’t know, Mercury travels close to the Sun. So, at any given time, the two entities can never be more than 28 degrees apart. I’ve heard of many people who say they don’t “feel” like their Sun sign discovering later that they have Mercury in that sign since the only possible aspect between these two is the conjunction.

With the Sun blended with Mercury, there’s no separation between what provides one vitality and the tools of perception, learning, communication and analysis.  Knowledge of oneself and the world figure heavily in the formation of one’s identity. Thoughts are essential to this person’s life force.

In the Bible, in the book of proverbs, there’s a passage that reads: “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he”. That sentiment is perfect for this aspect.

However, the difficulty occurs when the individual can’t distance themselves from the opinions that they hold and think that things MUST be a certain way because they say so.

A potential strength which can be developed is cultivating a mind of one’s own and wanting your thoughts and ideas to genuinely exemplify effort toward your intellectual development.

After all, a mind is a terrible thing to waste.

Sagittarius Sun, Scorpio Moon : “Stakes is High”

The moment when you know that the world is truly yours… #LiveThatGardenLife _ #Repost @locsandluggage ・・・ 🍃 [ TAKE ME H I G H E R ] 🍃 | Photo by @pangeasgarden 👏🏽 | Tag your favorite loc’d traveler! || #elyunque #puertorico #locsandluggage

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- know that the stakes are high and the goal is to live life as such.

This sun/moon combination suggests that emotional and psychological fulfillment comes through harnessing one’s abilities to consolidate resources in the name of personal growth.

The type of fuel your “engine” runs on contains aspirations to gain notice from others through a creative and unique expression of yourself and your gifts. If administrative prowess and personal promotion are blended successfully, there’s potential for the high visibility which comes with leadership, provided that you inspire others through an example of sincerity as opposed to being a walking exercise in ego inflation.

The step by step building of an internal locus of control nourishes you and helps you to ground your sense of authority. If your heart space is well-organized, the beaming light which accompanies your charisma has the potential to shine though in order to gain the personal recognition which you seek.

One of your keys to becoming a well-integrated person is to take responsibility for everything that you are. To recognize your strengths as well as your limitations and how to responsibly and effectively live within them.

When you “walk the talk”, you feel as if you’re standing on a firm foundation and there are no contradictions in your thoughts, words or deeds. In turn, this affords you the insight that you never have to settle for less than you deserve in your personal relationships or dealings with others.

In essence, you’re self-validated and don’t feel guilty about asking for, or pursuing what you want.
