Aquarius Moon Sign People

One of my heroes, Henry David Thoreau once said, "Each man hears the beat of a different drummer, and must step to the music he hears." I am sure he would not mind if I update his famous quote to include women too. Especially Aquarius moon women and men. These are our friends that have those endearing (and sometimes not so endearing) eccentric traits. They have very strong likes and dislikes. They are independent and unconventional souls, who do what they think is best, and do not especially care if you approve of their actions or not.

But they grow on you, and you begin to respect the fact that they do not follow trends, and that they stay true to themselves. Since their Moon is in that erratic and unpredictable Aquarius sign, these people experience many sudden and unexpected changes in their lives. Another reason is that Uranus, the Planet of Lightning is their ruler. They are strong willed people who can roll with that. And when the changes are hard ones, like deaths or divorces, you will respect the grace and sensibility with which they handle what life deals out to them. It could be easy to label someone who changes so much as flaky, but since you cannot categorize an Aquarian, you would be wasting your time and opinion. They have their own view of the world, and nobody will persuade them otherwise. Life would be such a bore without them!

Aquarius Moon Sign Personality Traits

Aquarian moon sign people are air signs, and thus are very intelligent. They have many interests, and knowledge in many areas. They are the original DIY kind of people, they do not need help, thank you! They do have a humanitarian side, and are often leaders of groups to feed the hungry, or to raise money for a worthwhile cause. It is not their leadership abilities that surprise other people, but the kindness and hard work an Aquarian moon person will put into any kind of project to benefit the less fortunate. They often do volunteer work, and care about groups of people a great deal. They like people in a detached sort of way. So that's why you will find them off fighting for causes, yet not letting too many people get close to them personally.

Most Aquarius moon sign people are quite friendly and agreeable, in an impersonal kind of way. They have kind hearts, and really do listen when others speak. Just don't tread on their personal space and you will get along fine. I realize they may seem hard to understand, but once you get down these few basics, you will find you have a very smart, well read and interesting friend who is worth the time you put in to get to know them better.

Aquarius moon sign people get bored easily, so make sudden changes in life that a faint-hearted person would not consider. Marriage does not really suit their independent spirit, unless they find a soul mate who understands their need for autonomy and realizes this is a person they cannot hover over, no matter how much they love them. They are perfectly capable people and know what they want and what they are doing. An Aquarian moon will not put up with a situation not to their liking for too long. Either you toe the line and shape up, or you will no longer be welcome in their life! They do not waste time on lost causes.

Aquarius moon sign people are usually interested in things that others might find unusual. I know one who is a mortician by trade. She thinks gory stories about autopsies interest others as much as they interest her, which results in some awkward moments. You can often hear them talking about something strange at a party, and others are trying to get away or are rolling their eyes. But they do not want to be like everyone else, and do not understand why others cannot see that.

Aquarius moon sign people are very inventive and love to take things apart to see if they can put them back together. They like science and have mechanical abilities. The women know how to fix their own cars or motorcycles. They most likely have a few tattoos as well. Their way of dressing will also be different. Say, it's 2016, and the Aquarius moon person you have your eye on likes to dress in clothes from the 1950's. They just like to be their own person, and you have to go with that. Although they grow up to be very productive members of society, they will always dress or act a bit differently than the average person. And that's fine, because they will never be "average." Why be average when you can be original? That's what makes them so much fun to be with when you go out. Aquarians like to go to concerts and shows, and like to have a good time. They really are a positive addition to any group.

A Fixed Sign who can Cope with Change

Aquarius is a fixed sign, which normally makes it's natives resistant to change. It is more complicated in the case of an Aquarius moon sign person. Their basic outlook on life will stay pretty much the same. But their Uranus ruler will cause chaos and upheaval in their lives, and so they will have to deal with more change than the other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. Add in their low tolerance for boredom and bright and curious minds, and you have a person who is much more open to change than their other fixed partners in the zodiac. This is what makes them such great conversationalists, and so open-minded about the way other people live.

When somebody is discussing their problems, and the Aquarian has had that experience, they do empathize. They will offer suggestions and advice. But chances are that the Aquarian moon was able to pick themselves up faster and get life back on track much more quickly. Why waste time on something that is not worth the trouble? The world is an interesting place with places to go, people to see. Aquarian moon sign people have a practical side that they do not normally let out too much. But they do make quick decisions once they have all the facts. They are also interested in occult subjects, and have psychic abilities. Since they are so independent, you will often find them as owners of their own businesses. And it will not be a mainstream business.

They will own a store that sells mostly organic and vegetarian products. Aquarian moon sign people put much thought into whatever they put in or on their bodies. Perhaps they make their own line of body creams and cosmetics, or practice some kind of natural healing, or own a metaphysical store. Whatever they decide to do, their brilliant minds and commitment to the task at hand will make it a success. And you will be delighted to stop and chat once in a while to catch up with whatever is going on in their lives. Whatever it is, it sure will not be boring!

      Hi,

      I wrote about how to cast your own chart a few years ago. I will forward the URL: https://jeanbakula.wordpress.com/2015/03/03/how-to... It sounds hard, and will take about an hour the first time. Plus somebody gave me all the books, my Aunt. So I don't know if it's worth it to you. But I find the newer astrologers and sites do all kinds of odd things. If a planet is a few degrees away from a house, they push it into the next house. The think asteroids matter a lot more than they do. I write a good 18-20 pages when I interpret a chart, and don't need all that filler. Plus the sites read aspects of the planets that are not that important. You can probably find tables with the info. The best book I ever had and still use is The Astrologer's Handbook, by Louis Acker and Francis Sakoain. It was used as the basis of computer chart meanings. Newer books don't have much to add since astrology is old, but you can probably buy it cheap on Amazon used. Take care! Love, Jean

      It's interesting the 2 of Cups always comes up. With all the Capricorn, could he be saving money, like for a ring? Just a hopeful romantic. Keep in touch.

      Hi Jean, thanks I'll keep you posted about this one! It's looking iffy... he basically wants to put us on pause for a month because work is so busy (theres the capi scorp+ aqua) but said he's still interested. I like him, but it's all a bit cold being ignored. Probably best just to detach for now and see.

      Gotta say though (I feel like I'm speaking to the right person here) I read his tarot cards, 4 separate times over the span of 3 months. Just a small spread. Every time the 2 of cups came up. Every time. He was spoked because he's a scientist, though very open "the statistics on that are like 1 in 6 million" was his response haha. Tarot is strange.

      Anyways thanks for your insight. I agree on the water signs! Need those deep chats. Definitely a connection there.. me and scorpio's are like magnets but they usually kill me. I like the idea of a loving water sign like a cancer sandwiched with a bunch of air-though ;) haha

      Question: Can you recommend any books that are good starting points to calculating natal charts by hand? I've always calculated everything online using generators but I'd like to start doing things by hand and really dig into the practice.

      Thanks again!

      Hi KK Cee,

      Great self analysis. I understand the dating two at the same time, even being in love with them at the same time (I have Venus and Mercury in Gemini) and though interesting, not sustainable. Damn. Especially once they find out about each other....

      I was liking the guy with the Capricorn stellium, but the Gemini and Aquarius would make him aloof.

      I like water Suns with Earth. How bad was the Cancer? If they have planets in Gemini, (almost everyone has planets in the sign next to their Sun) and maybe an Aquarius or Libra Moon, that could work. Pisces can be clingy, so I can see how that would be an issue.

      I do like that Earth stellium, let's go back there. You could find someone with an Air or Fire Sun sign, and if that stellium, or even Venus was in Taurus, that could do it.

      Also, how long have you been with Mr. Capricorn Stellium? He needs security too, especially with that Scorpio Rising. He needs time to trust you to let you see through the facade. I have Scorpio rising, and people often tell me I seem like I don't want to be bothered. I am trying to decide if I can trust others, or how much I like them. I would give him more time. Really. Come back and let me know, tell me what article this was if you do in the future, I love hearing good love stories that work out! Take care, Jean

      Hi! My main signs are squared and I need help because it creates chaos between wants and needs in relationships.

      I'm Taurus Sun & Venus. Aquarius Moon, Libra rising. I find myself most interested in eccentric, humorous and adventurous minds like gemini, aqua's, sagi's, pisces, but given the prominent taurus in my chart I always end up feeling insecure in these types of relationships because I fundamentally need stability and love. They capture my mind but not my heart. My heart is comforted by other taurians, virgos, cancers, sometimes leo...but I end up feeling bored or in need of space! My heart and my head need completely different things, and it's tricky to find them in one individual.

      Right now I'm seeing an Aquarius sun, Gemini moon, Scorpio Rising. Capricorn stellum. We connect mentally and through humour, but his general aloofness drives me up the wall and it's not built to last.

      Advice? How do I find a balance??? Should I preference one before the other? (at one point I just dated two men a t the same time...one a taurus the other an aqua and they balanced each other perfectly but this isn't sustainable haha)

      You both have Scorpio rising, so that puts the same zodiac signs on all twelve of your houses. This means you have similar attitudes about important areas of life, so is good for marriage. Gemini and Cancer are next to each other, normally positive. The Aquarius Moon is ruled by the head, and the Virgo moon is critical, but otherwise I think it's a good pairing. Best Wishes.

      Virgos are talkative, intelligent, restless and run people. They care much about health and fitness. The Aquarius Moon rules emotions. So they can care much about someone at the moment, then forget to call them the next day. It's a Moon which needs freedom in relationships. And also time to themselves. They will be be a nonconformist in emotional matters. The Leo Rising is the way others see you, so that's warm, generous, outgoing. It's an interesting mix, and don't forget, all the other planets are in signs too. Virgos are critical as well, and Aquarians always think they are right. Be strong!

      Leo Sun people are warm and generous. They love to entertain and are regal and think they are royalty. They expect to be treated as such. Moon in Aquarius rules your emotions, and they run hot and cold. You need space in a relationship, and don't like being tied down. You like to do your own thing when you want. Capricorn rising is the way others see you. So you are sensible and reliable. You don't waste time on people who you think aren't worth it, and are a bit of a social climber.

      Since they are both fixed signs, someone less persistent. A Cancer would understand you and your Aquarius changes, also compatible with Scorpio. Libra may be an OK sun sign as they want a partner, maybe with a water sign moon, like Pisces.

    • Jean Bakula profile imageAUTHOR

      Jean Bakula 

      4 months ago from New Jersey

      Both Leo and Aquarius are fixed signs, so you are persistent. Leos are outgoing and gracious, usually look good, and love to entertain and go out. Since your Rising sign is the way you seem to others, what they see is what they get, since that's Leo too. The Moon rules your emotions. Aquarius is ruled more by the head than the heart. You would be attracted to others in an intellectual way first. This is also a humanitarian sign, so you are the first to volunteer to help at whatever interests you. You may run hot and cold in love, although the Leo in you gives you a lot of warmth. It all depends on what houses of astrology these planets are in, so I can't tell more without a chart. I hope that helped a bit. Best Wishes.

      Yes, Libra and Aquarius are both air signs, so you are a thinker. Libra wants to be fair, so overthinks too much, looking at everything from all sides (a good quality, but it makes it look like you have trouble making decisions). Aquarius Moon means your emotions are ruled by your head, but it's a fixed sign, so that makes your opinions more hard to change, cancelling the long Libra decision making process at times. The way out would be the Leo rising. Leos seem warm and loving, you are generous and kind. It's a fire sign, and actually goes well with Libra and Aquarius. Leos are romantic and love children. Plus all your other planets are in astrology signs too. I think there is hope for you, hang in there. Best Regards, Jean

      A Capricorn sun person is ambitious, and plans ahead for everything. They are orderly and don't like surprises. The Pisces rising is the mask we wear, but Pisces means the person comes off as dreamy, imaginative, creative and romantic. The Aquarius Moon is the nonconformist streak, but being Capricorn, it lightens the person up a bit. Happy you liked the article!

      You are changeable, as you have both Cancer and Aquarius in you. The Cancer Sun means you are strong and sensible, with a creative and artistic side. Family is important to you, as well as close friends. The Aquarius Moon is about emotions, and since Uranus rules Aquarius, your emotions go through big and unexpected changes. You run hot and cold in romance. But Cancer and Aquarius sort of go well together, change doesn't scare you, so you will take chances. Sag rising means you accept people for who they are, and love to be outdoors, having a lot of friends. You like travel and may have a love affair with a foreign country, or someone from one.

      Hello Shau,

      All three of these signs are fixed signs, so you are persistent or stubborn. This is helpful for following through on plans and goals you make. This is an important time in your life, but remember, you don't have to make a big decision about job or career right away. Being Leo, I see you working with the public, and your stick to it ness will help you deal with difficult people. Aquarius moon means you are a humanitarian, and care about causes which help people. A paying organization which interests you would be a good start. Taurus rising means you seem friendly and don't judge others, they trust you. You are a bit of a nonconformist with the Aquarius Moon. I would start in a job where you deal with people, a stuffy office is not for you. See what you like, this is the time to do it. Let me know how it goes!

      Libra Sun people are fair and intelligent. You are a romantic who likes to do things in partnerships. You like and need a good work/life balance. The Aquarius moon rules emotions. You can seem hard to reach at times. Or run hot and cold. You like to shock people or have a nonconformist streak in you. Leo rising means others are attracted to you, because you are generous and a good host. You want good things in life and always make sure you look good before you leave the house.

      I appreciate that Jean, I just find it strange because usually when they’re done with a person they don’t seek them or whatever. They turn the cold shoulder. I’m very familiar with their mind games like a Scorpio but it’s different their approaches, same as their arrogance, I don’t know to explain it.

      Honestly the only good thing he taught me was to love and focus more on myself, do care about others but always put yourself first and my dog too, that he gave me. Other then that hell riddens to him haha have a wonderful Halloween!!

      YNS,

      I think your judgement in this issue is sound, don't let him back in your life.

      I am Cancer and my first love was a Capricorn. I feel like you are telling my story (also the "go eff yourself and die." Men. They are opposite signs, and most of us are attracted to our opposite and many of us have a love affair with them. But as you were affected, my Capricorn was also arrogant. He hurt me as well. But he would keep coming back into my life. I don't know any astrology reason that Capricorns would be stalkers, but I think he probably did have feelings for you at one time and they get nostalgic. He used to also come back when I was seeing someone else. Don't ruin something good over him, especially since you know he's not free to be with you anyway.

      I’m a Cancer with an Aquarius moon and Leo ascendant, and this Capricorn man I chased after broke my heart years ago, when I saw he had someone else I moved on, because it was time, and it was affecting my health after three years of not speaking to each other, I thought I blocked him on everything except through email quite honestly I forgot that I made contact on there sending him a document at one time. Recently he messaged me like if nothing had happened between us, he mentioned that he saw the apartment complex I use to live in on a murder crime TV show, the very last time I spoke to him I told him off to go "eff himself and die" hahaha (he hurt me bad.) I just feel that he’s so arrogant and I had to make closure for myself when he wouldn’t give it to me. Frankly I'm not so thrilled that he messaged me, I feel awkward and very confused. I have moved on and I'm with someone else. I'm just curious as to why he would message me after all this time? also I unblocked him to snoop around, he's still with that woman so I don't know why unless perhaps he's trying to show off or that he's unhappy with her, or that he still has power over me. I wish I knew his chart but I only know his birthday 01/13/1989

      I refuse to reply back because then it shows that I care or nostalgic which I’m neither and I don’t want to let such a person like that back into my life.

      Hi Jessjay,

      I think go along with your nonconformist ways, because that's the way you are. I find that as we get older, we are more accepting of ourselves, and it gets easier to not fit the mold so much. I bet you would rather be a bit lonely than have to be pretending to be someone you aren't. It's brave. Confidence comes along with maturity, and I think you will be fine! Hang in there and take care!

      Asha,

      I can't really answer this as an astrology question. I don't know anything about his astrology, and very little of yours. If you can't even talk to him and communicate with him enough to see if you have anything in common, and you already feel uncomfortable, I don't know how to help you. If you want to know if he is interested, you have to do the work and try to get to know him. This isn't astrology, it's common sense. Good luck.

      Hello Simarae,

      This is a lot of information, and it would take me at least two hours to compare two completed astrology charts. What I have to work with here is just planets in Zodiac signs, and it leaves out so much. But since you've read so many of my articles and have been so kind, I will try to interpret what I can, because when you read my work, you are putting your time in too!

      I'll start with your Virgo Sun. This means you are reliable, practical, intelligent, and get bored easily. A Sagittarius Sun squares your Virgo one, but this adds challenge to a relationship, and in my marriage, which was a good one, we had several squares. This can cause attraction, and besides, we don't want to be with a carbon copy of ourselves. Sag Sun people are outgoing. They have strong principles, which you will respect with your Virgo Sun. You both like nature and spend time outdoors. A Sag person is broad minded and likes sports. Some of them are chatty, and some are quiet, but they are easy to get along with and usually fun too.

      Your Sag Moon shows me you want some emotional distance in a relationship, or in any emotional area of life. You are restless and don't judge other people. I think you like to travel or love a particular foreign culture.The Aquarius Moon is a nonconformist who may care a great deal, but will be hard to pin down in a relationship. It's a very changeable person, in a sort of fun and quirky way. So the Sag and Aquarius moons will work well in a partnership.

      Mercury rules how you think, and in Virgo you are analytical, smart, and big on common sense. The Scorpio Mercury is also serious, but has a need to research and get to the bottom of everything. It's a persistent or stubborn thinker. But Virgo and Scorpio are Earth and Water, and compatible as far as thinking goes. Venus in Virgo is a hard placement, it's hard for you to express yourself in love, and it may be that sometimes you settle for friendship with a person rather than a romantic relationship, because you don't want to lose a good friend. A Scorpio Venus is very sexy and intense, and that intensity can scare you, although you have it in you to be sensual. Scorpio Venus is possessive, but since there is also the Aquarius Moon, that can make jealousy less. Mars rules the physical things we do, yours in Virgo and the other in Pisces are opposites, Pisces is a dreamer who is good at creative projects, and you are the balance who helps keep things sensible. Opposites are fine, I don't know why people are afraid of them. You both want the same things, but go after getting them in different ways.

      I can't tell much else without casting a whole horoscope, as I can't tell what houses these planets are in, and each house has at least three meanings. I also can't see how far the planets are from each other, so this is a small percentage of what a horoscope would be. It's not a bad combination, it's worth a try and I see some positive points in it. I wish you the best and let me know how it goes. Best, Jean

      Hello Simarae,

      I've searched all my life for a religion to believe in, but have never felt at home with any of them. My Dad was a Catholic, but the Church was scary to me as a child and I stopped going, it gave me nightmares, and my Dad got disillusioned with the hypocrisy. Long story. My Mom was Dutch Reform, it's very strict, you can't drink, dance, play cards, sing, it's very repressive and she spent her life rebelling against it. I have studied many religions. A Pagan is just someone who worships nature and the Earth, or appreciates it, it's not Wiccan or anything evil. I do astrology as personality profiles and tarot readings to help people who are stuck in their lives. You can decide if you want me to answer the other question.

      By the way, just wanted to say, your articles and knowledge is really a gift. Thanks for sharing your insight. I've clicked into your profile to check out your other articles. My Virgo Mercury loves your concise yet in depth way of expression; haha. And it's so awesome to live out in nature, I'd want to make such changes too. And I like how you mentioned that you don't identify necessarily as pagan but get messages from nature. I felt the same way growing up. So many messages in the patterns and cycles around us. Anyways thanks and wish you well too. Cheers!

      Hi Jean, your article is very informative and easy to understand! Thanks! I'm just curious about how to understand a combination of Sagittarius Sun, Aquarius Moon, Scorpio Mercury, Scorpio Venus, Pisces Mars, Jupiter Aries, Saturn Sag, NN Aries.

      I am Virgo Sun, Sag moon (in 9th house), Virgo Mercury, Venus & Mars, Jupiter Aries, Saturn Sag, NN Aries. Pisces Rising.

      Much love

      Anna,

      It's not hopeless. But I don't want you to hold onto false hope either. Give it a little more time, not much if it's been going on this long. See how it goes and maybe give him an ultimatum--but be prepared to walk away if he balks. Somebody devoted could be near and you aren't meeting him as you waste time on someone who won't commit. He's old enough to stop blaming his Mother for his faults. Don't make excuses for him.

      I suppose what I mean to ask.. (pardon my previous Pity response!!) But in truth, do you feel we would have something that would be of solid foundation in our relationship for a positive successful future? I understand the sexual square attraction and chemistry but that may not always last. Also, he is actually mercury in cancer!(not gemini- my typo!) Just looking for some encouragement if it is actually appropriate in this star compatibility with him and I. Like what would work in our favor to support a cancer sun/Venus/mercury/8th house and aquarius moon allowing himself to attach/commit emotionally long term. He did have a narcissist maternal figure who I do think affects his ability to demonstrate love, either out of fear of further rejection and/or criticism. Thank you for your time, insight and kindness. I'm not ready to let go quite yet but you're right, I don't want my heart broken and I dont want to wait another 2 years until I sense a whole hearted committment. Thank u.

      Hi Jean! Truly, what a remarkable response to my question! I am so thankful. My heart almost breaks reading how his cancer and Aquarius influence seems to show he is easily bored and not one to settle .. it almost seems that long term we may not stand a solid chance even if he does stop stalling or whatever it is he is doing now. We've been together almost 2 years, both 31 now. I have given him freedom and the option to let me go, but he does not choose this, however avtions-wise, he tends to keep very busy fixing anything and helping everyone, even me.. however intimacy he doesn't focus on much. I know you stay it's not hopeless but I'm reading it seeing that it is not engrained in him to settle down.. if so, maybe in another decade! Does astrology rule us or can we become more than what the stars depict if we are emotionally aware and invested? Oh dear.

      Hi Anna,

      I think I answered this in another question. All I can add is with his Mercury in Cancer, he thinks with his heart, not his head. The 8th house ruled by Cancer means he will probably inherit money or work in the insurance industry or with other people's money. The Gemini on the 7th means he likes change and may not settle down. He may be afraid to based on past family issues.

      I didn't know you had Venus in Pisces. That's a very psychic and sensitive placement. His detachment can hurt you and I wouldn't like to see this. I think his moods change often, now that I see he has another planet in Cancer. It's the Aquarius/ Cancer combo that causes all the change. I think my advise above still applies. Take care.

      Hello Anna,

      Well, you are a very ambitious woman! Aries and Capricorn are both cardinal signs of leadership, so knowing what is called your Trinity tells me you will accomplish what you set out to do. Your Aries Sun gives you an outgoing and adventurous attitude towards life, and you like to try new things. Aries people are ardent and demonstrative in love. You are warm and fun to be with.

      The Capricorn influences are a little different. The Capricorn Moon shows that you often hold your feelings in--though the Aries Sun helps with that. You are a bit at odds with your feelings, because Capricorn Moons like to show them in private, and Aries wants to shout it from the rooftops when in love. The Capricorn Rising is the way others see you, and you come off as reserved. You don't like to waste time on people if you don't think they are worth it. You are also family oriented and like to plan ahead. This causes you frustration with your BF because you like security in your love life. You are sensuous and loving. But you do want commitment and to tell others where this is going.

      You are right about your love, his Aquarius Moon and Sag rising do mean he likes freedom. But I like the Cancer Sun and Venus. This sign is a square to your Aries and Capricorn, meaning a challenge, but this can be sexy and exciting in a love relationship. People tend to think planets need to be all in easy aspects in love, but that would get boring. So this is good. Cancers also want security, but in the Sun sign, they get bored easily and Cancer men don't do well in marriages for some reason, many get divorced and have been married two or three times. Maybe too much Yin energy? But the Cancer Venus is romantic and gentle, he is sensitive and caring, nurturing, and probably wants a family some day.

      The Aquarius Moon means his emotions change suddenly, and actually since Cancer is ruled by the Moon, Cancers change all the time. The Aquarius in him makes bigger, more sudden and drastic changes, the Cancer, smaller changes, like a few times a week. The Sag rising means he likes the outdoors, and Sag people either appear really chatty or very quiet.He has a high moral code and may love foreign travel or philosophy and higher education. Since he has Cancer in him, I think he's the chatty type. I also like the Sag rising with your Aries Sun.

      I don't know your ages or how long you have been together. I understand you would like a bit more of a clue where you stand with him. His signs are contradictory. I think I would continue on, but keep your eyes open, and if he isn't ready to commit within a reasonable length of time, let him go. You know what you want out of life and want to start planning that, and he may be too changeable for you. I can't tell if he's just stalling with you, or if he really isn't ready to settle down. I think he can with the Cancer in him. Just be aware he can change his mind down the road even if you marry him. Don't let him break your heart. Give it some more time, but if you aren't making progress, you may have to walk away. I wish you the best. It's not hopeless, there are good things here. It's a matter of how long you want to put life on hold for him.

      Hi Jean. This article is quite insightful as I am dating an aquarius moon. I was wondering if you could provide more specific insight into our relationship as sometimes I find we aren't connecting as well -- sometimes i attribute this to childhood wounds and sometimes i look at astrology and i see how profoundly it can affect us. He is Cancer sun (not a very affectionate/caring mother), Sag rising, Venus in Cancer and Aquarius Moon. Mercury in Cancer and his 8th house in Cancer as well. 7th in Gemini. I am an Aries Sun (also rough start with mother/daughter relationship, no father), Capricorn rising AND moon, and Venus in Pisces, my 7th house in cancer, 8th in Leo. Thank you for your time and insight :) I love him very much but sometimes I feel like his words don't always match his actions - perhaps it comes from his detached side? Either way, I guess I'm also seeking some guidance.

      Hi Jean! I am an aries sun, cap rising/moon -- I am having a bit of trouble fully connecting/understanding my cancer sun male with aquarius moon, cancer venus and sagittarius rising (more freedom!). We match on so many levels and then when it comes to the future, or commitment, he really just doesn't know what to say. He doesn't even care to know where he will live in the next year! I would follow him anywhere if he only asked me to. Anyway, just looking for some insight into this pairing. His signs seem to all contradict themselves a bit, but i am no astro expert! Thank you.

      Hi Nikki,

      I'm Cancer too, and my first love was a Capricorn as well. I was also young when we met, and saw him on and off for a few years. As I got older, I realized I was achieving more in life than he was, and he had me on a pedestal, and that's not as easy as it sounds. Capricorn is our opposite sign, and most of us fall for our opposite one time or other.

      First I will warn you that if Mr. Libra still hasn't kicked the substance abuse problem, he isn't going too. Why set yourself up for that, astrology aside? What you say about the house alignment is true, if you have that it means you have similar feelings and attitudes about the important things in life, and that's positive for any long term relationship.

      As you say, Cancer and Libra are squared, but that's not bad in itself, we need challenges or it can be boring in a love affair. People over exaggerate squares. The Taurus Moon means he does want to settle down with someone and is very sensual. Being Libra and having Venus in Libra he really wants to be half of a partnership, Libra rules the marriage house. This bodes well for your Aquarius Moon. Being a Cancer with an Aquarius Moon you change all the time so he won't be bored. You are strongly your own person and nobody can change that.

      The Leo and Sag ascendants are also good, both fire signs who want to go out and have fun, but you want nice things in life, and his in Sag means he's more lax about things in general. He likes the outdoors. Your Venus in Gemini means you get bored in a relationship if it isn't exciting enough, or you will have two great loves in your life. You also may have been seeing two people at one time.

      I can see why you were reunited with him, you are very compatible from the info you gave me. But I have qualms about the drugs. Can you really talk about it? I think you can communicate well, but in the end it takes strength for him to walk away from drugs, and we can't change somebody, change has to come from him, from within.

      People have trouble with unconditional love. Some of them didn't have parents where they always felt love, and some, like us, were hurt by first loves. What's the saying, "the first cut is the deepest?"

      I think you will give Libra another try no matter what I say, so do it if you must. Just promise to keep your eyes open and don't let him drag you down, OK?? I am not saying he can't change, he has the potential, I just don't know if he will. Best of luck to you both. Jean

      Hi Jean, what a great article! This describes me so well haha it’s eerie haha, I wanted some insight and an honest opinion.

      I’m a Cancer with a moon in Aquarius, ascendant in Leo, venus in Gemini but there’s a man that has caught my interest but I’m hesitant to continue to pursue him since I’ve learned some things and have noticed...I feel uncomfortable with. We had similar upbringings but I think the way we both handle pain is extremely different from one an another.

      I know his chart he is Libra, Taurus moon, Sagittarius ascendant, venus in Libra I’ve read bits here and there trying to make sense of it all. He has a substance abuse problem and though he claims he doesn’t do it often it still irks me. It would be a no brainer but the thing is he and I met long ago when I was 18 and he was 24, now my age...at the time I was in love with a Capricorn man, so I pursued the seagoat but it was fail attempt, and I distant myself from the Libra man because I don’t like to string along others. Anyway eventually over the years I asked the universe to reunite me with him and one day, well it happened but now I feel confuse because I can tell he’s a great person but it’s that one thing that I just don’t like and when I don’t like something it’s an intense dislike. I thought I could overlook it at first but I don’t want to change him either because I wouldn’t want someone to change me but I don’t have a substance abuse problem. I feel like I’m a square next to him. I’m not sure if you need any other alignment but what I have noticed is that our houses are complementary to one another I’m not sure if that’s more important then the planets. Eventually I’m going to have to talk to him and discuss what’s bothering me. Also the Capricorn man broke me down and because of him he taught me many lessons, one of the being to be more like him less emotional more objective, not spreading yourself thin for others and focus more oneself. I’m a sucker for love but knowing that I cannot love unconditionally, as I did the first time. I feel detach more so now with people and things, l feel a more realistic approach to life and all it’s shenanigans.

      You are smart and precise about what you want, but also witty and fun to be with because of your many interests. The Cancer Moon makes you nurturing and considerate. Libra Rising shows you have ambition (so does Cancer) and you like being half of a partnership in work or love.

      The Aries Sun is square to the Cancer and Libra, but this can make an exciting difference between you that keeps life interesting. Her Aquarius Moon means she is distant at times, but it isn't personal, she's like that with everyone. Give her some space and don't get too clingy. Scorpio Rising means she has a strong presence and likes to finish what she starts. She is very sexy. I think the Scorpio in her will go well with the Virgo and Cancer in you, and the rest will keep you interested enough to wonder what happens next. Why not?

      That Cancer Moon creativity will help you get ideas for your fiction! I think there is hope for this combination. Cancer and Aries Suns are squared, and this is a challenging aspect, but we need some of that if we don't want to be bored to death in a relationship. Being Cancer, you do need some distance or time to yourself, but you can explain that it's not because you don't want to be with him. An Aries can be emotionally less mature than a Cancer, and he wants to be front and center all the time. But adults need to understand that others have needs too. He may hurt your feelings without meaning to, Aries people just blurt out whatever is on their minds.

      Libra and Aquarius Moons are good, they are air signs, representing emotions, so you can easily communicate your feelings to each other. Once again, the Aquarius Moon of yours also needs some distance, and you probably seem disengaged to him at times. His Libra Moon craves relationships, and once he decides it's you, he wants you to be with him every minute. He has to learn you have other obligations. But I think you can work through this issue. Your Cancer and Aquarius both make for a changeable person. But so do his Aries Sun and Aries Ascendant, so you both change on a pretty regular basis. So you should see this in both of yourselves.

      I like the Aries and Sag Ascendants. You are both approachable and friendly. He is a sort of "life of the party" kind of guy. You can come off as either talkative or quiet at first, there are two types of Sag people. You are philosophical and take the long view of life, a grounding influence on him. He is a very ambitious person and a born leader. You know what you want, but have a quirky side and may be sort of unconventional, but want security. But that's fine, be yourself.

      I don't see any big complications here. You have a Cancer Sun so like to know where you are going, and an ambitious person will be attractive to you. He can find you lovable and quirky. I think this is a positive mix. Best of luck in the relationship, you have what it takes to work it all out. Have fun.

      Cool article. I have a few questions regarding my moon and it's compatibility with other moons. I'm a cancer, with an aqua moon and sag ascendant. The person I love is an Aries sun, Libra moon, Aries ascendant. Some astrology sites say that it's not going to work with that mash up, which disheartens me because I was really late bloomer when it came to feeling romantic love and this person was my best friend before we became a couple. I'm female, he's male, if that helps. I had loved people before of course, but I often just felt a strong friendship and kin connection with them and assumed that was the same as romantic love, but when I became close to this Aries, I realized that it was different. I'm hitting a rough patch lately because he started a new job and I'm struggling to make my way into my chosen profession (fiction writer-there now you know I'm broke lol) and I think I've been making myself distant and it's not helping our relationship but the last thing I want is cause a rift or distance. I just want it to be okay with us, because I have never loved like this before. I'm not sure what I'm asking here lol. I'm very out of touch with my emotions.

      Hi John,

      I'm so happy what I wrote was helpful to you. Teaching astrology is always a good refresher for me! The Moon is all about your emotions, so yes, the aspects to the Moon are very important. The aspects to your Sun, Moon and Ascendant are the most important.

      Since all your planets are in an astrology sign and house, many of them have aspects to other planets. When I interpret a horoscope, I usually interpret the most important ones, and try to keep it at around 15 aspects or so. I am long winded, and when I interpret a chart I always end up with 20 pages, even when I try to be concise. Astrology is a lot of information, enough to be a life time study.

      I've been having a devil of a time trying to remember how to cast a composite chart. I only ever did the one for myself and my late husband, and I have been searching piles of folders of notes. I have a computerized one which agrees with my findings on the one I did myself, but mine is a copy, and I didn't copy the math it originally was cast from. I finally realized about two days ago that it's about the times of both births where I have to start, and I was able to get the degree of Sun for the both of us. But that still makes it hard to find the average point of the midheaven, ascendant and all the other planets and house cusps. I am still working on it.

      It's a great thing to have. Because of Prince Harry and Meghan, I wanted to try one, and still can't find any directions. I don't like synergy charts, it's no different than casting charts for both people and just reading, "Well his Moon is in Cancer, so he's very family oriented, and he Moon is in Capricorn, so she's very ambitious." Then you sit and compare each planet to planet, that's what sites do. So they would have opposite Moons, not really a problem, they just go about showing their feelings in a different way.

      A true composite is a 3rd chart. It's not the chart of you or the other person. It's the chart of the relationship itself, a 3rd entity. Believe me, it's driving me crazy, though I am closer to recalling how it's done now that I can get a composite sun. When I finally recall how it's done, I'll look you up on this hub, or you can find me at jeanbakula@wordpress.com. I never developed it much, it's mostly a landing site for orders, but I do check it and want to make it different. Maybe more posts, but smaller astrology tidbits.

      Thanks for your continued interesting questions.T Keep studying! Take care, Jean

      I was wondering, how important are moon aspects in the chart? or any other planet. negatively or positively aspected. essentially how important are aspects in the chart?

      Also, in one of your replies on this article, you briefly mentioned that you had a composite chart done and reading it 39years later it was spot on. Do you perhaps have an article about this experience?

      Hi John,

      Did you check out the article about houses? It explains more than I can here.

      Yes, the degrees matter. But I think newer astrologers get too caught up in them. There are 30 degrees in each astrology sign, 0-29.. They are split into something called decans. So 0 degrees to 9 would be the first decan of let's say Aquarius, 10-19 degrees would be the 2nd decan ,

      and 20-29 degrees would be the 3rd decan. In my experience, the degree only matters if it's really close. Let's say a Sun is in 29 degrees of Aquarius. Now, newer astrologers would MOVE the Sun if it was within 3 degrees, and put it in the next house.

      I'm a purist, and have a Sun like that in the 8th house. So some would insist on putting it in the 9th house. As my personality goes, it could really be in either one. But the 8th house is correct, and reflects my life experience the most, although many of my interests and love of travel are in the 9th house.

      I say stick with the real position. The seconds don't really matter, 1 minute or 60 seconds isn't going to change your life.

      Some also think if the planet is in the 1st decan, you don't feel it or exhibit the traits as much, exhibit them more in the 2nd, and early in the 3rd, still like the 2nd, but as it gets farther towards the 29th degree, you take on traits of the next sign. I think it's BS.

      I hope that helped and wasn't too confusing. A site that I trust and is pretty good for a computerized site is Cafe Astrology.com. But I'm happy to answer your questions. I have hopeless people who write to me, and I have sophisticated ones who are really trying to learn, and I feel so excited by that! I want to cry when I get a naysayer who still thinks it's all about where your Sun was at birth. I've been studying this since I was 10 yr. old, and still have a lot to learn! Keep going, there are a lot of directions to go in!

      Does a degree of the house have any effect on the sign and the house? for example, Venus 9th house 21 degrees 30' or moon in Aquarius 12th house 4 degrees 42'

      Hi John,

      The house placement has a HUGE influence over the planets. I preach this until I can't take it anymore. When people give me the trinity or a sun sign, I can't tell much. It takes around 12 hours to cast and interpret an astrology chart, and I charge for it. There are 12 houses that have at least 3 meanings each. I have the link to an article I wrote that explains this: https://hubpages.com/astrology/The-Twelve-Houses-o... The picture is large and you will be able to see some of the house meanings yourself.

      The 9th house does rule foreign countries, but in most love relationships it is more likely to mean she may be from another country or will love foreign travel a lot. The house also rules higher education, so she can be a teacher or is well educated or smart. It rules law and philosophy too. So has she been involved in lawsuits or is she a lawyer? Does she read about philosophies often, or read a lot for the love of reading? That would be a more complete look at her Venus. Librans are romantic, and she probably is good looking, needs attention and likes beautiful things.

      The 4th house is about home, but also real estate, and your relationships with family. So you may want to putter around the house, or could invest in real estate often. You do love home, but basically having Venus in the 4th isn't about stability (though you know yourself), that would be your Moon sign when we look for what gives us stability. You are more possessive than she is, but that will keep you close, and Libras like to be with a loved one practically every minute anyway. You'll be fine.

      I have other articles on Exemplore, explaining Moon signs and Sun Signs. I also cover Venus signs on Letterpile.com, where I made up fictional couples, but made them with the same Venus sign. You can find them there and read Libra and Scorpio to get the idea. Have fun. Jean

      Hi Jean

      Thanks for a great article.

      I was wondering, does the house placement of the moon (or any other planet) have any influence ?

      For example my partner has a Libra Venus 9th (squared Uranus and Neptune) and I have a Venus in Scorpio 4th. Astrologically speaking, from my basic google interpretation, is that she is attracted to adventurous foreign types while i'm more attracted to home and stability.

      Would love to get your thoughts on the house placements of signs.

      Thank you so much! He is being absolutely wonderful. We are still a very new couple and are creating our boundaries with each other as well as the foundation of how we relate... It seems like he just wants to philosophize objectively with me at times when I'm interested in being intimate! But the troubles seem to have opened us to new intimacy, so maybe my sag moon is ok with his meandering aquarian thoughts... as long as that ascendant in leo makes my cancer feel like a queen & his virgo makes my scorpio feel safe... we're pretty golden. I will totally be checking back in with you! I love your site. And thank you!!

      Hello Kyra,

      Since the Moon rules emotions, Aquarius can make you seem a bit aloof at times. You may be really close with somebody one day, and forget their name the next. You need freedom in a relationship and like to do things our own way. So a clingy person or someone who is too needy may get annoying.

      The Cancer Sun makes you nurturing though, so you may experience that need to have some space, and not tell people. You are basically kind and gentle. The Cancer Mercury means you think with your heart, and the Venus Mercury shows you are a true romantic. Three planets in the same sign is called a stellium in astrology. So you exhibit many Cancer traits. You are tender and part of you does want security, and you are artistic and likely psychic too.

      Cancers are as changeable as Aquarians can be erratic, so this can work for you! I actually know many Cancer/Aquarius couples. Both signs get bored easily, and crave change, or can want it suddenly. So it works in an odd sort of way. Cancers need time to themselves, and Aquarius needs to be aloof because they are so interested in learning new things.

      The Leo rising is the facade you show, or how those who don't know you well see you. Leo is a warm and outgoing sign, loves to entertain, throw parties, go out a lot. So on the surface you seem more sociable than you are. The messy part is because you do need occasional solitude, and emotionally both the stelllium in Cancer and your emotional nature of Aquarius demands it.

      Leos and Cancers hate to say no. But you can try to practice it, I think that's causing emotional confusion and disarray. You want to socialize and have fun, but need "down" time. Work on that, you'll get there. Best Wishes.

      Hi Jean,

      Love this article so much. Truly a pleasure to read.

      I'm a Cancer Sun, Aquarius Moon, and Leo Rising. Lately I've been experiencing a lot of mental disarray, especially with understanding my emotions. They've always been messy, and I think my Cancer Sun, Mercury and Venus contributes to that greatly.

      Still curious if you have any insight or advice for an Aquarius Moon.

      Thank you!!!

      Hi La Lee,

      That Moon in Aquarius will make him "check out" emotionally at times. I don't know how long you have been together. Your Moon and Venus in Sag should be OK with him not being a clingy kind of person, but it does hurt when it seems like someone isn't listening, or is expressing things in a hurtful way. Your ascendant in Cancer does make you super sensitive, and Scorpio Sun means you are possessive, even though the Sag in you is a help in the relationship. His Sun in Virgo also works well with your Cancer and Scorpio.

      His Ascendant and Venus in Leo also bode well for your Sag planets. I think you hit it on the head. You need to decide if you can handle that aloof part of him, because at times when you need him, he may be in his own world. I don't think he intentionally wants to hurt you, it's just how he is. I do believe there is hope. We all go through phases, and maybe the timing is just bad lately. Take some more time and think about it. If he keeps putting you off for a long period and you can't get any answers, then you may have to move on. But not just yet, wait a bit. Keep me posted, we can always do a tarot reading.

      Hey Jean, thx so much for this. It's really well written. I'm seeking insight on my partner (moon in Aquarius, sun in Virgo, both asc & venus in Leo) and his really strange way of behaving since we've gotten comfortable. He loves me, is devoted to me, is flying across the world to be with me, an generally takes great care with me when I'm upset, but has recently started to kind of disengage when he's talking to me. He rushes home to talk to me and then says thoughtless things that do not matter to us at all. Sometimes they're things that upset me. He doesn't get hoe I feel uncared for when he seems to lack intention when communicating. It keeps happening. (I'm both moon & venus in sagitarius, sun in scorpio, ascendant in cancer so I feel like I'm losing my mind here.) I just seem to be upset a lot (it's irksome how he's changed) and it only gets better if I complain. He admits there's an issue, and is fully present for a little bit, then seems to slip out again. He's made & is making enormous changes in his life for me/us and swears he just needs time (we need time) but I'm wondering... could there be an element of 'checked-outness' in his moon that will simply be? Is this just part of him I need to decide to take or not? I thought with my sag influence I'd be all on board for the freedom aspect of his moon, but I'm actually super hurt by what I sense is detachment. It is merc rx in fiery aries, and we are definitely going through changes, but I wanted to ask (you put it so politely in your post) do moon n aquarius ppl tend to 'check-out' w/ ppl they love? So much so as to seriously hurt even a sagitarius moon? Or is there hope??

      You really can't unless you have a horoscope cast. People go to astrology sites and cut and paste all the signs their planets are in, but that's not what an astrologer needs, and is only part of the picture. You need the day, month and year of birth, and most importantly the TIME of birth, to get your ascendant or rising sign. Also, the city and country where you were born. I can do it, but can't give a URL here, though there is a way to contact me. A site I trust is CafeAstrology.com, you can learn from that. When I answer questions about planets in signs, it is part of the horoscope. But it leaves out all 12 houses. I have an article about that on Exemplore, and also about Sun signs, moon signs, Mercury and Venus. All that takes time to interpret. Then it matters how far all the planets are from each other. It's a lot more work than people understand. Thanks for inquiring. Take care. Jean

      Hi Lauren,

      Yes, Cancer is ruled by the Moon, I'm one as well! The Moon travels through all 12 Zodiac signs in about 28+ days, like a menstrual cycle. So it affects us Cancers more than anyone. People around us should expect a change every 2 or 2 1/2 days!

      The Aquarius Moon rules your emotions. So even though Cancers like stability, our changeable nature makes us open to Aquarius influences. Both signs are nonconformists, and I know several Cancer/Aquarius couples. So there is no "tension" between your Sun and Moon.

      The Ascendant in Gemini again is how others see you, and that's intelligent, lively, someone who likes to go out and learn new things. You probably excel at many things. I think you are tall.

      The Venus in Leo means that you can be stubborn in love, but also expect many displays of affection. You want to be treated like a Queen. And why not?

      Cancer people are gentle and need a long time to open up to others. The Moon and Ascendant in air signs makes you more outgoing than a Cancer description you might read, and more adventurous. Sometimes the Cancer need for security may clash with your emotional, Aquarius Moon, which wants freedom and novelty. But it's not a bad thing. I hope that helps. Take care, Jean

      No, everyone's chart is a picture of the sky at their time of birth. There are no "family" influences in it except for one I can think of. When a Scorpio in a family dies, another one is born.

      Oppositions or squares like you mention are challenging, but also add excitement to life.

My husband is a Capricorn sun Leo moon while my son is Leo sun Capricorn moon. Is it weird or do families have this placements often.

      Hi Martin,

      The house a planet is in is very important. I answer questions here about planets in astrology signs, but it's about 1/6 the meaning of a whole chart, which takes about 10-12 hrs. to cast and interpret. Aspects are the distance each planet is from the others, and means more than what sign a planet is in. These are the 3 biggest factors when interpreting a chart, and there are more.

      I haven't written any articles on these, although my audience is more sophisticated about astrology than they used to be. I had to stop answering people who cut and paste all the planets in the signs when they look up their B-days, because it's so little info in reality, and too many were doing it. I then got a nasty email last week from a girl (I assume a teen, she was so rude) and she ranted how I probably was a fake and only cared about money.

      I spent years paying for good astrology books, taking courses and workshops, and I don't think she would have spent that much time on me if I asked for free info (she was on my comments page for weeks getting free answers). It really hurt, as my best friend passed away that week.

      Venus in Libra in the 9th house is this--Libra is the home of Venus, so it's a great place. It shows the person loves romance and even working in partnerships. The 9th house represents education, foreign travel and countries and philosophy and religion. So the person would excel in these areas. The Moon in Aquarius is another air sign, also the moon represents emotions. So it means attraction to an intellectual person who likes those topics too. But the 12th house is about secrets, and secret sorrows. So there may be heartache in this relationship, or one of the parties is not telling their true feelings and being secretive, or both are keeping it secret.

      Close aspects like a conjunction intensify the Venus in Libra. Let me see if I have an article on this. But as you see, all these factors have to be put together like a puzzle, and it takes time. I'm glad you are learning the right way. I may have an article on this at jeanbakula.wordpress.com. But a site I trust, not for charts, but astrology basics, is CafeAstrology.com. Maybe this should be the next thing I write. Thanks for the question and idea. Best Wishes. Jean

      how much effect doesn't the house placement of the moon or any other planet have on a aspect ? For example, How does a venus in libra 9th house natal have a impact on ones chart or moon in aquarius 12th house.

      If you have any articles on hard venus aspects in the natal chart, please do share :)

      Hi John,

      Ok, well first off, squared or opposite moons are not as bad as some people seem to think they are. If we all got along so easily, wouldn't life be a bore after a while? The square is more challenging, but can bring excitement into a relationship. The opposition means both want similar things, but have different ideas about how to achieve them. It's easier than a square. My husband and I had squared Venuses and Moons, and were married for 39 yrs, (he passed 4 yrs. ago) everyone thought we were the perfect couple. His Venus was in Pisces and mine in Gemini, Moons in Capricorn and Aries. I planned and he had no foresight.. I liked to talk things out about our relationship, but he was a total romantic and probably would forgive me anything. It's older astrology books that make these aspects seem so dire.

      As far as synastry charts, I think you can get a lot out of them, but I don't like to do them. Basically, event though I can predict issues you will have and easy areas for you, I can't predict a couple will stay together forever or a huge length of time. Sometimes we meet someone and are together for a few months, and it changes us forever, that's our soulmate. It's two Natal birth charts compared.

      A composite takes both your Natal charts, and creates a 3rd entity, your relationship. I had ours done a little before we married, and reading it 39 yrs. later, can't believe how accurate it was! I have been considering offering them, but in the beginning of the year I am swamped with people who want Natal charts, they are making resolutions to know themselves better, and want to utilize the knowledge in the chart.

      So I am deciding if I want to do composites. That's the better thing. If you want one I can suggest two good astrology sites I even trust, Cafe Astrology and Astrotheme.com. I don't know if they offer them, they will be computer generated and will have jargon you won't get, but what they say about the relationship will be accurate. Otherwise, ask me again in the Spring. I learned how to cast charts when I was 21, and it's been so long I have to recall how to do composites! But people are asking, and I do know how good they are, so once I dig out from my pile now, maybe I will refresh my memory and start doing them again. Take care.

      I didn't think the planets were incompatible. Sag people are free spirits. There are the quiet ones, and the ones who never stop talking! Sometimes people really do realize what they had and come back, maybe it will happen.

      Yes, I sometimes can feel my husband around. I am not religious and needed an interfaith minister to help with the service when he passed. She was a clairvoyant in my area, and I had taken metaphysical classes at her business, but not with her. Since I write, I wrote his eulogy, and she added a lot to it. She really was good, and at first she knew so much about him, although they never met. A few nights after he passed, I awoke and saw a ball of white light over my head. She said that was his spirit. I had trouble learning to sleep alone. She said he used to sit by me until I did fall asleep. I don't feel him as much, just every now and then. But I believe in reincarnation, and know he's reviewing this life, so I guess he's busy! But she helped me through those first hard months, and I got more clairsentient since then, a big help for when I cast charts.

      Dear Jean,

      I so sorry for your loss on this day. It's very hard to imagine the heartbreak of loosing someone you love so deeply. It's beautiful that you were together for all those years and I'm sure your bond is still very strong. Do you still talk to him throughout the day? I periodically mentally tell my friend I am writing to you about that I love him throughout the day in hopes that he feels it. Is that weird? I truely appreciate your insight on us. You made me realize I forgot to write down his moon sign. He has a Sag. Moon. maybe he's too much of a free spirit? We've had some unforgettable fun times together and I know we met for a reason. I hope him and I stay in touch for a very long time even if our time 'together' has run its course and I hope he relizes one day that I'm his favorite 'girl.' ;) I like everything you wrote and I thank you.

      I never promise a life long union to anyone, even if you are very compatible. If you are twin souls, or soulmates, you would know that immediately. Something he said or did would have triggered that off right away, or at least in a few weeks. The night I met my husband, he told me "I vibrated faster than anyone he ever met." This is a pretty involved metaphysical observation from someone who was 19 at the time. We dated for 5 yrs. and were married for 34 (he passed away, it's been 4 yrs. today, and I didn't even go on a date yet, nobody measures up).. Many of our unmarried at 30 yr. old son's friends thinks he remains so because they all think we had the perfect marriage. It was good, and the planets were good. But when we met we had astrologers casting our charts, and nobody could say more than what they saw as they knew us.

      Scorpio and Aquarius are two fixed and stubborn signs, so you will have challenges. But that combo is often together and seems able to overcome them.

      Your Venus in Libra, the marriage sign, makes you yearn to always be half of a couple. His Venus in Sag means he needs more freedom, but they are compatible and I like that.

      Saturn is a karmic planet, so it's hard for me to know what about you both it affects without a chart. I don't know what houses they are in or what aspects they make to other planets. He is sensible, but you are fair in general matters. Mars in Sag and Scorpio are next to each other, so that's usually good, signs next to each other agree easily. I don't know where his Moon is.

      I would maybe suggest that since you are both mature and give each other space this could definitely go somewhere. You should both feel the "soulmate" things. I would think a tarot reading specifically about the relationship would help us see where this is going. You can look me up at jeanbakula@wordpress.com. Astrology tells us a lot, but I never predict forevers. Even a soulmate can be in your life for a short time, but you never forget him/her. You both have lessons to learn from each other, but have been together in other lifetimes, and I don't know if you believe in reincarnation. So there are a lot of metaphysical concepts in your question, and even if I did two charts, I'd never say "forever." I'd go with the tarot reading, but otherwise say give it a shot, it looks good.

      Take care,

      Jean

      My Moon sign is in Aquarius

      Venus in Libra

      Mars in Sag

      Saturn in Libra

      My male love has an Aquarius sun.

      His Venus is in Sag

      Mars in Scorpio

      Saturn in Taurus.

      This is all I know about him. He won't tell me his birth time. I truly believe he is my soulmate/twin flame. We met 6 months ago on a Leo new moon. He is 9 years older than me. We give each other the space we seek. We don't see each other or talk everyday because we live 45 minutes apart and we both have busy lives. We both have had lot of experience in relationships so we approach each other on a very mature and understanding level when we spend time together. Do you think he thinks the same about me? Do you think we will have a lifelong union here?

      It is a tough situation. You have the Scorpio Mars and he has the Taurus one, and actually Taurus is more passive than Scorpio. I think it's good to make yourself less available, and at least you are trying by having one night a week where you can try to show and tell him what you need.

      I think that's fine for a bit. But honestly, I wouldn't give it more than a few months. There's somebody else out there who will satisfy your need to have a regular relationship, and will appreciate you more. Open relationships let one person take advantage of the other, as it isn't what you want. I understand there is an attraction, but how would he like it if the shoe was on the other foot? Try for a bit, but if he doesn't change, move one. Best of luck to you!

      Hello, back again! I actually understood you very much. You deserve to be compensated for your time and many people will come here with little studying themselves.

      So I’m the one with the Scorpio Mars actually. His is Taurus Mars. The thing is that we are very close and in love. He sees being with me as different so it’s harder to engage or have sexual desire, especially with his hook up addiction. He is mainly into oral.

      We are starting to work on it 1 time a week. He said it’s hard because before me he would search daily and that his type represent a whole different feeling than is romance. I know this is his Aquarius moon acting out. I usually would have run by now but as I said, I’m more upset over the fact that he feels more desire to chase them then to initiate anything with me. When we have he is super nervous and you can feel the uneasy ness of intimacy on a sexual level.

      I know I want to be with him and a open relationship is fine as long as I know we have desire as well. Even today he has been online all day. He emailed me but I decided to use the law of attraction and finally not respond 1. Because his mind is on a hookup and 2. Because I will see him this weekend and want him to appreciate me and realize I won’t talk to him when he is in this mode.

      When we are together it’s all about doing things and cuddling but he never mentions sex anymore. I told him I won’t be compartmentalized which is why he agreed to “try” with me more often. When combining our charts it makes us seem toxic when the love and romance itself is faaaar from it. I have checked myself to make sure I’m not being codependent and also to not allow my Scorpio energy smother him.

      It sounds like disaster but truly he has wired himself and doesn’t want to lose his independence. Being single that long with instant gratification has caused him to just not know how to feel in his moments of compulsion, but why am I not a part of that? So even with all of our issues I am the strong one and I know he loves me strongly but how do I keep a Moon Aquarius, Venus Aries interested when he is so pattern like a Taurus.

      I hope I’m doing the right thing by not emailing him and giving him time instead of getting upset and having constant talks that drain him. Weirdest situation I’ve ever been in.

      Hello Daniels,

      Well, I have a Gemini Moon and my love of 39 yrs. had a Pisces one, and we got along fine. She is more of a free spirit and may not want to be tied down as much as you do. A Taurus Moon loves relationships and is a little old fashioned, or romantic. The Mercury and Venus are OK in Libra and Scorpio. Signs next to each other usually work out well. Her Mars in Scorpio actually helps more with your Taurus Moon, it's opposite, but that's an attraction. Your Mars in Cancer makes you home loving and possessive, but also loyal and kind.

      The biggest issue I see is that in my 40+ yrs. of Astrology, I only saw one couple with the same Sun sign that stayed together. It's strange, but true, and I've worked with thousands of people. They were Capricorns, boring as hell. I am a Cancer Sun and dated another one for a while years ago, but it felt more like we were friends, or like dating yourself. That may be what you are feeling. So maybe you are too much the same, and that's what's nagging at you. Libra is the marriage sign.

      I'd rather see you with an earth or water sign sun. I see you as sensitive and wanting to build a life with someone. Maybe she does, but she craves more freedom than you. I hope that helps. If you really try hard and can accept she needs space, I think this could work. The Venus and Mars you have together is good too. But I worry about the same Sun sign thing. Take care.

      Hi,

      I apologize for being so hard on you. I had a large bunch of questions where people want me to basically do hours of work for free, and I simply can't do it, there aren't enough hours in the day.

      Some of their "problems" seem so trivial to me. But yours isn't. I am a bit stumped here though, I must admit. As far as his planets and yours go, there should be more compatibility. I was with my Taurus for 39 years, and they like romance, and are generally faithful. The Venus in Aries man normally likes to show off his girlfriend, and sort of puts her on a pedestal. And in an odd way, he is, when you are the one who he takes to meet the family and friends. It sounds a little like a Madonna/Whore thing. He doesn't want you to be a "hookup", but wants YOU to be the Madonna. I can see how frustrating this is for you. His Scorpio Mars isn't helping here either. But as I said earlier, a few squares don't kill a relationship, sometimes they add to it.

      Did you talk to him about how neglected you feel in the sex department? Or won't he discuss it?

      I really don't know what to say. I'm sure you are attractive, and it seems you aren't going to get what you need from him. Or even if you do for a while, he may revert to his bad ways, or you will worry he will. That would be stressful.

      With your Moon in Gemini and Venus in Aquarius, you may be giving off a more " I don't need anyone vibe" than you think you are. But with the Pisces Sun, you are sympathetic and psychic and gentle in relationships.

      What's your Ascendant? Even so, I can't say why people are not meeting your sexual needs. This is a tough one. I do think with the current guy, there is an expiration date. You need someone who makes you happy and fulfilled. And you shouldn't be blaming yourself so much. Maybe the right one hasn't come along yet? Have you had this issue with anyone else (it sounds like yes)?

      Maybe you just have a sort of "girl next door" kind of appeal when guys meet you, and have to get past that. I wish I could be more helpful. Keep in touch and let me know how it goes. There are a lot of confusing grand trines and aspects going on right now that are upsetting everyone in different ways. Why don't you try to talk, even if you already have? See if you can make any progress. I can't tell if he wants you to be the "good girl" or if he just wants you to be the cover up for all his hookups. Men, they are so impossible.

      I didn't mean to hurt your feelings. Just don't keep hitting your head on a brick wall if you can't get through. Try, but move on. Take care.

      Hello Jean. I think I misrepresented myself. My problem is more that I KNOW that sex isn’t what it’s all about but I don’t want a sexless relationship. Because of his Aqua Moon and upbringing, it makes him not know how to combine the 2.

      I don’t want to just have a romantic relationship and didn’t know his hookup addiction was so important. Again he is a Taurus with Venus in Aries, Moon Aquarius. So I guess I’m saying that I don’t know how to keep his attention. I’m actually the more mature one in the relationship. Everything you said I’ve called him on already and he knows.

      Our bond is unmatched but we are not sexual and it’s been 6months. It’s like he avoids it or doesn’t need it with me because he is so in love, but then on the flip side he gets to have hookups as a way of connecting sexually. I’m very jealous of that and hurt......not because of the open relationship, but because they are getting a part that I’m not.

      We are very much in romantic love, I’m the one that gets introduced to friends and family.

      I understood you couldn’t cast the charts as I’ve done it already. I was just giving you the most important (Sun, Moon, Venus, Mars). I appreciate your time and have been reading this post for months. So sorry for misrepresenting myself (Gem Moon Merc Pisces). I’m a frantic mess because I’m in love and he is the most special person I’ve ever met. But his mental illness and sex addiction to hooking up with a specific type is difficult. He is attracted to me but it seems not sexually.

      It eats at my core because in the past 15 years I have been neglected sexually. Some believe I’m manifesting it because of my Venus Mars Square. Maybe I’m to friendly in my relationships. I don’t know. Very healthy and athletic body. I do my best to be attractive. I seem to only attract love and no desire.....hurts deep. Trust that I do know very much the importance of love, which is why I’m tired of not being desired sexually.

      So just so you understand the dynamic, not for full chart purposes.....(I know what they mean. I just want your amazing input that you’ve shared with others. His Aquarius Moon is strong!!! thank you so much)

      Me: Sun - Pisces, Moon - Gemini, Venus - Aquarius, Mars -Scorpio

      Him: Sun - Taurus, Moon - Aquarius, Venus - Aries, Mars - Taurus
