I sometimes feel like aspects of myself, spawned or spurred by the planets that aligned when I made my entry onto this one, are at war with each other. And if not full on war, then just general unrest. For example, I don’t think my late Aries Sun and my Pisces moon get along. AT ALL. Aries is like, ‘hey, y’all, let’s go out and have fun and make friends and fall in love,” while Luna Pisces is all “ugh, this bitch. I want to stay in, have a bath and eat Doritos and watch Cabaret.” Luna usually wins.
Venus Pisces is mostly not listening, all “lalala,” and Mars Libra ponders not having enough information to make an informed decision, ever. Meanwhile, Capricorn rising stands to the right of these hippies, silently judging everything while giving me an air of ‘I HAVE EVERYTHING UNDER CONTROL,’ when, in fact, I do not.
My question, lovely Mystic, is how do I achieve harmony, in love, in life, when the very signs that compose me seem set up to clash? I suspect that the problem is mostly my Pisces moon, but I don’t want to hurt the fishes’ feelings.
Thank you for your crystal insights, amazing astrology and killer horoscopes. It’s always a pleasure to read this blog.
Dear Astrologically Challenged,
First of all, thank you! And actually you don’t sound astrologically challenged at all! Moon In Pisces also needs an official spiritual outlet or she just sort of oozes around like an underground river, making simple relationships weird inland oceans of surreal subliminal confusion.
Also, so as you know, most successful people have charts with technically clashing elements. It’s that dynamic tension that generates breakthrough thinking and creative resilience. I would say find an appropriate channel for the Pisces Moon to flow down – Venus AND Moon in Pisces are easily nourished by solo regenerative time, perfumes, yoga and marathoning The Borgias.
Your Aries Sun, Mars in Libra and Capricorn rising are all fierce as, the Zap Zone (Uranus square Pluto – the ultimate in cardinal squares) ) is when you sow your victory seeds. I would say nourish that Yin-Moon and don’t the Piscean waters turn toxic, work your Saturn before EVERYTHING else – it’s always a good policy but more so for you as you have Capricorn Rising.
Or see Moon in Pisces as a Priestess needing sanctuary, Aries as a Warrior needing a healthy combat situation and Capricorn Rising as a builder requiring proper structure and a plan.
Work them together cohesively and voila the Awesome. What does everyone else think? You CAN think of your Ascendant, Sun and Moon sign – your astrological signature – as a trio who need to get along. To understand them and the dynamic more easily, you can assign them characters.
