“History is not time – nor is evolution. They are both consequences. Time is a state: the flame in which there lives the salamander of the human soul.”
Andrei Tarkovsky – Aries Sun-Pisces Moon, on a lunar swerve.
Aries Sun-Pisces Moon people perpetually surprise others and have no idea why. They’re straight-forward and their transmission is super-direct yet they become used to the regular refrain of “oh wow…that’s not like you…” or “that’s so strange, I took you for an extrovert/introvert…”
Whether it’s their political loyalties, weekend plans or that they do/do not like watermelon, they’re like an involuntary contrarian.
How does this happen? The Aries-Pisces combo is fab for so many things – motivation is a done deal because the visionary Piscean Moon loops ahead and sees things that the Aries Sun takes as a quest.
eg: Filmmaker Edgar Wright, who has this combo, cites “biting off more than you can chew” as one of his core ‘success secrets’ even if it always entails being “beyond budget.”
Another talent? Rejuvenation. They’re adept at periodic power-downs from which they emerge with practically supernatural vigor.
This Sun-Moon combo is also unfiltered – think performer Ali Wong – particularly on ‘don’t-go-there’ topics.
Some of confusion presumably comes from the blend of the essentially combative Aries approach and the more surreal flow of their Piscean Moon. These people smoothly deviate from snappy tell-it-like-it-is-ism into ultra-Piscean occult philosophy without preamble.
The lunar swerve feels natural to them but it can disconcert others. You see, Sun-Moon merger means they were born on a Dark Moon – the very end of the lunar moon, on the verge of the New Moon.
Astrally, they’re most serene when they’re on the brink of something, with a fresh horizon in their sights. Aries Sun-Pisces Moon people trust down and up times, which means they come across as alternately hard-driven creatures of mission and zen surrealists.
