 Dear Mystic,

 Can a moon sign ever totally ruin a sun sign?  For a TOTALLY RANDOM example….Sagg sun, Libra moon. Where’s the bravado? Where’s the daring, adventure, the open-mindedness, the freaking polyamory?! Sagg’s may be insane, but at least they’re usually fun!

Is Libra totally ruining the natural sun Saggaciousness or is a rising signs fault? Are Libra’s wimps? (Sarcasm aside, I’m actually serious.) Or something *throws hands up in confusion* , I dunno, what can put a damper on a fire sun? Any ideas?

Rango Tango

Dear Rango Tango,

Libra actually is THE sign of polyamory. I wrote ages ago that LIbran women don’t have call waiting, they have cad waiting. They’re just a lot more low-level and quiet about it than Saggos. Librans like you to assume they really were all day at the day spa. You know, like, every day. Whereas Sagg is more like “Guess WHAT? I just got hit on by my neighbor and, like WOW, you know…”  All right i am exaggerating.

Librans are not wimps. Saturn can put a damper on a Fire Sun. But in general, they just keep going and going, stadium concerts in hot pants at age 75 sort of thing. Generally speaking, most of us do our Sun Signs and repress our Moons…it depends, obviously.

What does everyone else think?

Whoah now!! This article really struck a chord with me in my current sexy-time dalliances with a sexed-up polyamorous Libran. Am pleased to read you consider Librans to be THE sign of polyamory, MM. I’m a super-sex-charged polyamorous Saggo myself (with Scorp rising) who doesn’t stand much for commitment to one love for any period of time and am thanking the universe I have been gifted with the meeting of my Libran love-god of late. We are totes on the same page of the Kama Sutra, amongst every other possible alignment – honesty, trust, acceptance, communique, awareness, respect… etc etc… Read more »

Ya, um try a saggo sun, libra rising, gem moon guy. He thought it was his saggo sun, and yet libra the sign or partnership yet poly-amourus, lol. I didn’t like that combo, yuck what a paradox.

I would not think of Libra as being THE sign of Polyamory. Maybe that’s because my double-Libra ex-girlfriend and I broke up within days after the moment I realized and communicated with her that it was something that resonated with me, even if I wasn’t so much wanting to label myself that way. Another double-libra girl-friend of mine IS very… poly-oriented, in a way. And the “day spa” comment is pretty right on about her. But SHE has sagg rising, and I think that’s where it comes from, at least equally so. Reason why? Polyamory involves unflinching honesty, and believe… Read more »

I’d always ID’d so heavily w/my Virgoan edit-organize-analyze-agonize Sun that when the dysfunctionally harmonic energies of my rising/moon were brought to my attention I was shocked and honestly relieved. The haute and low add up and I think it balances for better or worse. I believe sun-moon-rising energy are inseparable and powerful even in their relative ‘absence’.

Depends on what day it is and what’s in aspect. Definitely my Pisces moon is really obvious a lot of the time. I’m very easy to cry in response to any of my MANY emotions (sooo Pisces) but there are many days when I’m very light and my head is a little quieter (that second part is definitely my Aquarius sun/rising). Or maybe it’s all just schizophrenia and there’s not an ounce of truth to this astrology stuff.

This placement trines (mutual recption) Venus in Aqua 3rd. Now Neptune’s off it and Saturn is off it, you should see the brilliant network being forged.

now that I think about it, Librans are anything BUT wimps.

The Libran Moon is interesting. Subtle charm, but in no way dampens Fire ~ a Fire Sun and Air Moon is nice ~ it blends for sophistication. I think Libra is perhaps the most sociable of all signs; Libra talks to everyone (communicative -air), and can’t help but be into details and this is how the Lib. charm works – Librans notice the details and little things most often over looked. I often comment on details to do with a person or feeling or place – most often it’s an aesthetic detail (Libra-art) – and then people seem to brighten… Read more »

I’m not really answering rthe question – I think my aqua moon happens subconsciously. and sun more consciously. I have always been a bit eccentric.

In my case my aqua moon means I am attracted to people who are a bit different and I go mad working in an environment where I have to be sane. I do work there and it drives me mad. I think the moon complements the sagg sun qualities of optimistic and happy and active….but my pisces rising makes me very nebulous at time…and life nebulous…

Brava! For the record i don’t find Libra wimpy at all. There is plenty of vascillation before decision/opinion time but once that time is reached, it’s CLEAR. I find Libran grace and humour wraps up sharp wicked observations. I have had some very straight up directions from Libs – in fact, if i think about it, some of you are bossy! Just doesn’t come packaged that way.

Pisces sun and mercury, cap moon. I agree, it’s a battle. Working out very mundane issues in my dreams, which i used to want to spreadsheet. Chrysalis, do you normally do contract work? I do. I find it gives me the freedom for my piscean side but my cap moon loves contract rates and the bouts of super-productivity.

People think i’m a total flake but once they see me in action they realise that i’m beyond type A.

Chrysalis

I too love the freedom too of a contract, plus I don’t have to get too involved in office politics, but at the mo I need something secure and ongoing. So, Cap is in charge of this process.
Funny, I get described as flakey too, but not by anyone who’s ever worked with me. All my Cap stuff is augmented by Mars in Virgo.
I guess as with everyone, balance is the key. Too much of one or the other is no good for me.

I’m female with Aqua Sun, Pisces Moon. In my case, I think my Moon represses my Sun as my moon has many more aspects to it than my sun, and so I think it is more dynamic in my chart.

I’m the opposite ( or am I? ;)) – libra sun, aries moon. You must be a full moon baby like me, since your moon sign is the opposite from your sun sign.
My aries moon certainly comes out and ruins the ‘nice’ image when I get emotional lol I live to be authentic, so no holding back. I think libra + aries = activism of some kind, you care for justice and truth. I ‘push my feminist agenda’ pretty much every day 🙂

Anyone got tips on how to repress a moon more intensely/successfully?

My kakata moon is really killing the buzz from the awesome sun/mercury/neptune/lilith conjunction in sagg and it squares the other potentially awesome venus/mars/uranus conjunction in scorpio.

I’m super keen to get out and work those bits of me but I keep being soaked in sooky, emotive stuff which really of dampens the whole fire/energy/passion thing.

I should be working this instead of hiding it.

I feel the opposite, I think my Sag moon over rules my Scorpio sun a lot of the time.

Saggo Sun, Libra Moon and I am always in relationships. I feel like I thrive better. I work better. I’m nicer to people. I am more optimistic and athletic and all the haute Saggo things. B/c of this relationship “compulsion” though, I tend to be attracted to / go after / fall for guys that aren’t quite right. And stick around too long until I’ve had it and leave in a blaze of “fuq you, I’m gonna explore the world-ness.” Low Sagg? The thing I’m wondering about though, is post Saturn fuquing with my Libra moon …all I can think… Read more »

I can relate. I’m Aries rising but have every other planet in Scorp, Sag and Libra with dominant Libra. I tend to avoid relationships unless I feel like they’re right (Scorpio, no half measures) and I have a tendency to be a bit of a non committal cad. Funnily enough I’ve been thinking a LOT about the whole child thing, have concluded that a partner who already has them is my best bet. Some by proxy parenting sounds good, although pref without baby mama dramas. Ugh who knows!

Alas, *raises hand*, I confess I’m guilty of the whole moon supression thing. My Leo moon self is a bit of a shy lunar kitty.

It’s the only fire in my chart too. Sometimes the drama is a good thing, but I’m often emotionally conflicted.

Moon squares my Sun/Merc/Jupiter in Taurus.

Hmmm Leo sun with Cancer moon and Saturn its a bloody dampener for sure!

I’m Leo sun and Cancer moon too…. If I can quote Mystic here from my Zeitgeist my moon is like the Zap Zone it girl as its squareing Uranus which really makes sense as all these years I just figured it hadnt kicked in or was being washed out by my Pisces Moon or something… Moon in Cancer in the 5th house seriously by my age I should be swanning around with my heaving cleavage and a nest of babies….. (I have no cleavage or babies!) So Like I guess it depends on what other big flavours are in the… Read more »

LOL Fire Fish: I too am Leo Sun/Cancer NN,Vertex, Mars, Moon in 5th/Pisces Asc and I do have cleavage and my children are my gifts (now 12 & 14). I have Pluto opp AND Uranus squaring my Moon right now and it’s changed my landscape fosho. I’m guessing I’m older than you as I have a grand water trine including Chiron,Vesta conj in Pisces/Moon/Neptune,Pallas, Juno conj in Scorp plus having Venus/Vertex/NN/Mars/Moon conj in Gem/Cancer 4th/5th plus a packed Virgo 7th house which sextiles all that water energy. I really think the outer planet connections are super influential. Nice to know… Read more »

Me three Leo sun and Cancer moon! I think I bring the Leo though. Very sooky with my kid, no surprises there. But I think my Cap ascendant actually helps the Leo-ness.

Oooh, I’m a Cappy with Libra rising and Kataka moon. I’m tugged between all three influences and it’s hell, though I think I’m getting more moony’ as I’m getting older… Or maybe I’m just finally admitting I’m a nurturer, sooky, emotive thing who would rather hug trees and save baby birds than deal with idiot people. Having said that, i have definitely felt a kick up the arse and my ambitions re-awaken since Saturn changed signs. Maybe my Cap master planet is in charge after all? Probably about time I got back in the uber-ambitious Cap saddle. I’m running out… Read more »

Hehehe, similar but different configuaration.

Cancer sun, Cappy rising…. Aries moon and a LOADED seventh house. Tug of war you say.

It’s all, mmm I’d like to be all lace and lady-like go bake some cookies (Cancer) but let’s be serious (Capricorn) and assert our right to be THE centre of attention (Aries)…… But, you know, what does everyone else want to do (seventh house…….aka Libra represent!)

I’m cap sun, cancer rising and libra moon – married to an aries with a scorpio rising and gemini moon. I totally understand your inner push-pull – I seem to go through phases of each. Although I do find I have insanely good emotional intelligence and determination. Not much fitness but.

I like your comment on the emotional intelligence. I think you’re onto something here. Could be a positive aspect of my true node in kataka I think.. ( oh and I am libra sun)

so true!
i have actually thought about this theme for a long time, and never came across a solid truth. i even dreamt about it once.
i am a real Aqua, with Jupiter in Aqua near the Sun, but i also have a very trickster, elusive, still UNKNOWN Moon in Kataka in the hidden 12th. I have the temptation to put the blame on her (my moon) every time things go wrong. i mean…..wtf is she doing there? what am i supposed to do with her?

Hahaahaa!!! So funny…I was just looking into (well, trying anyway!) the 12th house yesterday…trying to get a grip on what it’s all about…sooooooo, sooooo, nebulous! I’m a Pisces 3rd house Sun w/ my ruling planet Neptune in Saggo. over in my 12th house…still waiting for that to reveal it’s doings over there too, so I feel your pain with your moon! But Kataka Moon in the 12th…hmmm, some hidden nurturing talents mayhaps??? Are you a mother? Caretaking of any sort in your future??? Animals maybe? Feeding the homeless??? I dunno…but I’m sure it can be a bit unnerving for your… Read more »

hey! hi flyingtigerfish 😉 i didn’t undestand, is your Neptune in the 12th? and, about me, nope, i’m not a mother, but, yes, i do care about nurturing peeps, friends, pets, and whoever crosses my path in a sort of needy way. i do caretake and sometimes in a unusual kind of way. i like to drop flower essences in every place i think they are needed and i’m very in tune with animals and plants. i like every sort of creature, and i have a deep sense of pain every time i sense someone vulnerable is in pain or… Read more »

Hi! To answer your question, yes, my Neptune is in my 12th house in Sagittarius…I’m still trying to uncover what that’s all about! 🙂 Something to do with keeping my creative/imaginative self hidden maybe…also seems to have a similar effect to having the moon there…in that I’m VERY concerned with the wellbeing of other creatures…similarly to what you described (I read this in an older astro text, that that was one of the traits of Neptune in the 12th). Anyhoo, in my research yesterday on the 12th house, what kept coming up (besides the ancient ideas of it being the… Read more »

wow, this article is really great! thanks a lot! and yes, 12th house planets are a mystery and a gift. i totes agree with you and with what the author writes. it indeed takes time and effort though.. returning to your question about Neptune in the 12th…um.. the planet of Pisces in its own home. cute! and you’re a Pisces as well. you must be a super intuitive type, brilliantly picking up impressions and little things around (3rd house Sun) and trasform them into a whole multi-dimensional work (of art?) and genius! or is it just that you have a… Read more »

Ooh! Thanks for that link! I’m already fascinated…I’ve tried similar practices in my distant past, and think it might be time to revisit! I definitely pick up on things in my environment…indeed I absorb it ALL; but for some reason I’ve never thought of myself as one of those uber-intuitive Pisces for some reason, though I have a few friends who would beg to differ. I think when we swim around in the ocean all the time absorbing everything in the water seems un-exceptional a bit. I do know when I *trust* my intuition rather than second guess it, it’s… Read more »

sorry for all the type-os and run on sentences…the little fields get narrower and narrower as we reply down, and it’s hard to get a feel for what you’re writing!

i’m too kinda of pleaser/peace maker type! can understand that! i think partly this is due to my 7th house Sun and Jupy which want EVERYONE going on well with each others and all the aqua themes of “global friendshipness” etc.. utupian but fun 😉 indeed 😉
loved your grand trine in air, must be very stimulating!! me too i have one!!
well, i loved this topic! thanks for sharing your insights! 🙂

Yes! Much fun, and thank you too! Grand Air Trine I’m told makes us word wizards! If you have any latent writing or speaking skills, it would be wise to cultivate them! Cheers!

I struggle with the prescription of caretaking qualities to kataka.. My true node is in kataka in the 12th and I have a loaded 4th house. Yes, I am a mother, but this is only a part of who I am. I am studying to be a psychologist ( I want to work in psychotherapy) so maybe a 12th house true node is somewhat relevant here?

mollybloom

the axis 12th/6th is relevant to what pertains to health issues and any form of cure…then a loaded 4th puts emphasis in the inner/imaginative world and all the caretaking activities. then, why not ? 🙂
