Venus-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

Venus-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

In astrology, Venus represents the feminine, sensual nature. In aspect to the Midheaven, Venus shows the extent to which feminine qualities influence your career. 

Sometimes, Venus can enhance the Midheaven by providing a sense of aesthetics, talents in politics or negotiations, social skills, or work with a partner or lover. With the more difficult aspects, you may struggle with self-love, personal values, or relationships and find that these things are at odds with your career and image.

Venus Conjunct Midheaven

Venus conjunct Midheaven is also called Venus Culminating. This is a harmonious aspect and means that you have a peaceful public image, especially in the manner of the sign.

You tend to get along with others, especially in the public sphere. Your honest and loving nature shines through, though you also have a good amount of charm and grace, which puts others at ease.

With Venus conjunct Midheaven, you are a natural peacemaker. You easily create good relations with other people and may enjoy negotiations, mainly because you have a strong sense of fairness.

However, you may also be artistic or creative, depending on the sign that Venus conjunct Midheaven is in. In more ways than one, you probably enjoy harmony.

Venus conjunct Midheaven doesn’t mean that your public image will be spotless. After all, there’s always people who don’t like others. It simply indicates that you have special talents when it comes to peacemaking, harmony, and aesthetics. Many people simply like you because you’re authentic and pleasing.

It’s important that you stay true to yourself. With Venus conjunct Midheaven, you may work so hard for harmony and peace that you forget your own values. 

Remember that, while human relations are important, it’s also vital that you maintain your core sense of self.

With Venus conjunct Midheaven, you may attract people of influence or successful people. Sometimes, this aspect indicates financial success (because Venus rules finances), but you also may do well in the areas of politics, diplomacy, arts, culture, or any job that requires an aesthetic approach.

You will most likely have at least a few connections or partnerships that help you advance in your career. Some people with Venus conjunct Midheaven even meet their partner through career or end up working with their partner.

Ultimately, Venus conjunct Midheaven means that you have the skills to bring people together and make the world a more beautiful place. Look to the sign that Venus conjunct Midheaven sits in to see how your skills will manifest more specifically.

Venus Trine Midheaven

With Venus trine Midheaven, you love to work with beautiful things. In some way, your work must be aesthetically pleasing.

Your knowledge is natural when it comes to aesthetics, music, art, beauty, or other types of creativity. This can manifest in many different ways, depending on the signs that your Venus trine Midheaven aspect is in.

For example, one woman with Venus trine Midheaven is a famous singer, while another person is a furniture maker, someone who focuses on the details of the craft and creates beautiful wood pieces. Both people work for the love of beauty.

With Venus trine Midheaven, you may be passive in your career. You prefer to smooth things over rather than fight, though this aspect says little about your personal life. In the work place, you simply hate conflict.

You do have a sense of natural charm that probably makes you well-liked. 

Because Venus is also the planet of love, you may find that you are well-known because of your partner (such as marrying a celebrity) or that your career is about relationships in some way (e.g. a couple’s therapist). Alternatively, you might work with your partner in your career.

I find that the Venus trine Midheaven placement tends to indicate either a propensity for working with beautiful things/being creative, or a tie to the partnership/love aspect of career.

Sometimes, Venus trine Midheaven can mean that you’re married to your career and that you may neglect your love life in favor of the beauty you find from you work.

Although Venus trine Midheaven gives a lot of wonderful, beautiful qualities, it’s important that you focus on the practical side of work, too. You tend to naturally get swept up in the art or romance side of your work, but you must make sure that you always get paid for your time and that you’re respected in tangible ways.

Venus Sextile Midheaven

If you have the Venus sextile Midheaven aspect in your natal chart, you probably have strong socials and a large presence. You probably pursue some type of status or success with gusto.

You have a strong appreciation of beauty. You may enjoy art, music, beauty, luxury, or a very comfortable lifestyle. With Venus sextile Midheaven, you have a good sense of entertainment or hobbies, even if you’re very busy and successful career-wise.

Venus sextile Midheaven also gives you strong negotiation skills. However, you can learn how to infuse even more Venusian qualities into your public persona to become more successful.

This means that, with Venus sextile Midheaven, you have the opportunity to develop your skills in the areas of negotiation, politics, peacemaking, finance, the arts, creativity, musicality, or aesthetics.

The sign that Venus sextile Midheaven sits in will show you the types of skills you can most likely develop. This aspect is very positive but does require a bit of work in order to bring out the most Venusian side of yourself!

Ultimately, you have a pleasant personality and are attractive and sociable. Hone your skills and use your most Venusian qualities for good, and you’ll see your career improve quite quickly.

Venus Opposition Midheaven

With Venus opposition Midheaven, you probably enjoyed beauty or aesthetics as some way when you were a child. Maybe you liked to dress yourself a certain way, had a talent for art, or appreciated design.

This may have been because your parents taught you these skills, or because you felt a lack of beauty around you and were more interested in aesthetics than your caretakers. 

Either way, the result with Venus opposition Midheaven is that you truly enjoy beauty. You have a liking for fine clothes or accessories and are probably particular about the way you dress yourself or your home.

With Venus opposition Midheaven, you may be a bit private about your emotions. You tend to show love most behind closed doors, and you may seem closed-off or even cold in public.

You don’t give away love easily. You must know that you can depend on your partner before you feel safe giving away your heart.

Sometimes, Venus opposition Midheaven indicates that you will go into a partnership with a family member. In fact, business with family members will probably be quite profitable for you.

This aspect can also indicate that you will be successful in real estate or in investments having to do with homes.

With Venus opposition Midheaven, you may want to buy your own home or use your finances to secure a sense of permanence and comfort. Tangible things make you feel like your life is stable and consistent. 

However, your creative abilities may be blocked in the outer world. You struggle to show this artsy side of yourself professionally.

It’s important that you learn how to integrate your creativity and sense of beauty into your career, too. The way to do this is to work in a field that you actually care about, something that excites you and allows you to use your keen sense of aesthetics.

Others may never recognize your beauty or creativity. Don’t get hung up on wanting the admiration of other people. Instead, learn to be successful for yourself to create a beautiful life that reflects who you are.

Venus Square Midheaven

With Venus square Midheaven, you may have self-esteem issues. You don’t believe that you’re truly lovable or capable enough to succeed in the world of career.

In fact, you may even think that you lack the proper Venusian qualities, such as beauty or social skills, to really “make it” in public.

Venus square Midheaven tends to make you submissive in career. However, this actually hinders you even more.

You try to live by the values of other people and shun your own inner values in order to be successful or accepted. You’re always lowering your standards in order to please others.

This makes you feel a deeper sense of self-respect, and you probably don’t get the popularity or success you desire, because others sense your lack of sincerity.

Over time with Venus square Midheaven, you will learn that other people will never see your values as worthy. You will always encounter obstacles.

Instead, you need to act on your own values without changing them and without feeling ashamed. With Venus square Midheaven, you must learn the lesson of developing self-love in the face of rejection.

It’s also possible that, at times, you feel like your love life and your career and incompatible. For example, a housewife may want to work, only her husband insists that she stay home. She must keep up one in order to keep the other.

Again, it’s important that you always follow your own values with Venus square Midheaven. Over time, you will come to develop a sense of self-love and self-assurance.

These qualities are not easy to come by. However, the square will force you to work on these pieces of yourself, or you will never feel truly happy.

Focus on what brings you happiness and success instead of trying to please others and your path will be much easier.

Venus-Venus Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Venus Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Venus relationships in the synastry chart are all about how you give and receive affection. However, these aspects may also indicate your tastes and likes, and how well these things match up with your partner.

These aspects are very romantic, though they aren’t sexual. Venusian love is about feelings and energy, so these aspects are favorable for friendships as well. 

With positive Venus-Venus aspects, you tend to feel similarly about beauty, love, and social situations. Difficult aspects mean that you struggle to understand why the other person likes certain things, and that the ways you give love may be at odds with each other.

Venus Conjunct Venus Synastry

With the Venus conjunct Venus synastry aspect, the couple has the exact same Venus sign. They tend to like the same things and receive affection in similar ways.

This aspect makes you naturally compatible. The way that you express and receive love are suitable for each other, and you have similar feelings on love as a concept.

In fact, Venus conjunct Venus in synastry makes you attracted to each other right away. The energy between you is warm and the connection is strong.

You see the same sorts of things as beautiful. For example, you may like the same style of clothing, the same types of restaurants, similar cities, etc. Venus can extend to just about anything material or even etherial!

The way that you both perceive beauty will be more clear when you look at the sign that your Venus conjunct Venus synastry aspect is in.

This connection makes your initial meeting a bit magical. You may intuit that you’ve found someone who just gets you.

Generally with Venus conjunct Venus in synastry, you appreciate how the other dresses, socializes, talks, decorates, etc. You probably enjoy many of the same activities, especially those specifically geared towards Venusian pleasure.

You could also find that you enjoy the same music, movies, books, or other forms of art.

The Venus conjunct Venus synastry aspect is a great placement for a romantic relationship or a friendship. In fact, it shows up quite often in the synastry chart of friends because it gives such a seamless energy to the relationship. You simply have so much in common.

In a romantic relationship, you may feel that you lack chemistry or sexual tension, unless you have other aspects to create this. Sometimes, Venus conjunct Venus can be too harmonious, and you may start to feel like friends.

If you have this aspect in a romantic relationship, then it’s very important that you foster the sexual side, too.

Regardless of the relationship, when you first meet someone with the Venus conjunct Venus synastry aspect, you might feel an innate sense of rightness to the relationship. It’s quite a happy aspect, but you must remember to go deeper at some point in order to form a strong bond.

Venus is often just how things appear, but even with this conjunction, you both have an entire chart. Make sure that you learn about each other actively instead of just basking in the Venusian magic.

Venus Trine Venus Synastry

With the Venus trine Venus synastry aspect, there is a sense of instant “like” or attraction. You immediately feel comfortable around each other.

In fact, you probably perceive each other as likable or pretty, at least on a superficial level, when you first meet. You feel like you have a lot in common right away.

Over time, you will come to learn that the Venus trine Venus synastry aspect does bestow a lot of natural compatibility on the relationship. You have similar ideals about love and relationships, and you’re able to cooperate with each other in a way that feels seamless.

The trine is natural, meaning that these qualities will be inherent in your relationship. Especially in the beginning, you feel like you have a lot in common without trying.

If things get sticky in the relationship, you will always be able to go back and find common ground. Look to see what element the trine is in to determine more about what your commonalities are.

With Venus trine Venus in synastry, you express and receive love in similar ways. You may also have similar tastes when it comes to clothing, decor, art, aesthetic, and social graces and desires.

You probably feel that the other person has good taste in many ways, and they’ll think the same thing about you.

However, the Venus trine Venus synastry aspect doesn’t always generate a lot of chemistry. While it feels like fate in the beginning, it can quickly fall flat unless there are more intense aspects underneath.

You tend to agree on most things and this can make the relationship too easy. It may feel like you have a lot in common but yet you’re still bored.

By itself, the Venus trine Venus synastry aspect doesn’t guarantee longevity in a relationship (look to other aspects in the chart for more information about the relationship), but it does make things much easier, as you give and receive affection in similar ways and have compatible lifestyle wants.

Venus Sextile Venus Synastry

With the Venus sextile Venus synastry relationship, you tend to be comfortable around each other and have similar taste. In many ways, this aspect represents a great friendship, even if the relationship is romantic.

You probably want similar things in love. This aspect is great for compatibility. You tend to think that the same sorts of things are beautiful and your desires regarding clothing, decor, food, taste, etc. don’t conflict.

The Venus sextile Venus synastry aspect also means that you can learn how to give and receive affection in ways that the other person enjoys. Because this aspect is a sextile, you may not totally understand how to give affection so that your partner recognizes what you’re doing.

Likewise, your partner may not completely know how to show you affection. Luckily, the Venus sextile Venus synastry aspect gives you an easy opportunity to communicate about love and affection.

With a bit of work, you can come to understand more about what affection means to your partner and you will both feel more satisfied in the relationship.

Over time, you can even develop an intuitive sense about the kind of affection that the other person needs. You can teach each other about different kinds of love in a way that feels easy.

Venus Opposition Venus Synastry

With the Venus opposition Venus synastry aspect, you may feel a strong connection right away. This is the classic “opposites attract” relationship.

You can develop a natural bond quite easily. There is enough friction with the Venus opposition Venus synastry aspect to keep the relationship going, but you may come to find that you don’t have a lot in common, at least when it comes to the areas that Venus rules.

For example, you may enjoy doing different things/hobbies, and you’ll have to learn how to balance your time together so that you can both get your needs filled. You may dress differently, enjoy varied foods, or have different ideas about how things should look.

Typically, you consider vastly different things beautiful. If you’re able to explain your point of view to your partner and respect theirs, then this shouldn’t cause a problem.

The Venus opposite Venus synastry aspect isn’t anything to worry about in a relationship. It simply means that you must learn to appreciate and respect the differences between your likes and those of your partner.

Over time, you can figure out how to balance each other. This creates a strong polarity that can make you feel like you’re two halves of a whole. Sometimes, Venus opposition Venus in synastry can even bring out the best qualities in each of you.

You have a strong sexual attraction with this aspect, because oppositions create friction, but you will need to figure out how to give and receive love. You see affection in completely different/opposite ways.

For example, someone with Venus in Pisces may give affection by showering their partner with romantic gestures, while someone with Venus in Virgo shows affection by doing those small, daily tasks that they know will make their partner’s life easier.

With the Venus opposite Venus synastry aspect, it’s essential that you communicate about what love means to you. Otherwise, you will simply miss each other and may come to think that your partner doesn’t care. This isn’t true: you simply show love differently.

You may start to feel dissatisfied with your partner in the areas of socialization, beauty, style, values, affection, and hobbies over the long term. It’s important that you learn how to balance your needs with those of your partner’s.

In this relationship, you will always be different. To make it work, you must learn how to communicate about what you want and meet each other halfway.

Venus Square Venus Synastry

With the Venus square Venus synastry aspect, there is a lot of friction in the relationship. These partners will enjoy very different things.

If you have this aspect in your synastry chart, then you will be immediately drawn to your partner. The friction from the square creates an intense attraction and it can even make you feel as though you’ve met your soulmate.

Over time, you will figure out that there are massive differences between the two of you. 

With the Venus square Venus synastry aspect, one person is usually an introvert while the other is an extrovert. Your hobbies/interests, ways of socializing, clothing, decor, sense of taste, etc. are all at odds with each other.

You may struggle to understand why the other person would see beauty in the things that they like. Unlike the opposition, the square doesn’t balance; the wants and needs of the other just feel off or wrong to you.

The Venus square Venus synastry aspect can make it difficult for you to find things in common, even if you’re simply having a casual conversation. You may feel as though you’re living in two different worlds.

You show and receive affection in ways that make no sense to each other. Most likely, the way that you give love triggers the other person and vice versa.

This Venus square Venus synastry relationship can work, but it’s very important that you communicate and learn to adapt so that you each feel more comfortable. You must be willing to learn from each other.

Remember that you both have something to teach. Don’t fall into the trap of “right” or “wrong,” but instead seek to understand your partner’s point of view.

Moon-Venus Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Venus Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Venus aspects indicate a tie between your emotions and your sense of beauty in the world. 

The easier aspects tend to enhance your sense of elegance and charm. You’re able to read others well because you intuitively understand what they like. However, you may be prone to avoiding anything that’s less than graceful.

With the more difficult aspects, you have trouble integrating your emotions and feelings with your relationships, social circle, and sense of beauty.

Moon Conjunct Venus

The Moon conjunct Venus aspect is a truly special placement. With this aspect, you are incredibly charming and emotionally adaptable.

In fact, you may always feel the need to conform to what others desire. You tend to use roundabout methods of getting what you want since you don’t want conflict.

With Moon conjunct Venus, you may be extremely sensitive to criticism. Therefore, you’ll be overly sympathetic or empathetic to someone in order for them to like and approve of you.

These qualities make you appealing as both a friend and a romantic partner. After all, who doesn’t like someone who listens to them and adapts to their needs?

You have a romantic and gentle side that appeals to the feminine nature. With Moon conjunct Venus, you tend to attract children, animals, and anyone who likes a softer touch.

Moon conjunct Venus makes you especially charming in the sign that the conjunction is in. With an air sign conjunction, you may be verbally or socially charming, while a water sign conjunction gives you a deeper sense of emotional empathy.

Appearances may be very important for you, though the way that this manifests is again dependent on the sign. You may desire a beautiful or balanced home, enjoy artwork, or dress yourself a certain way.

In fact, appearances matter to you on an emotional level too with Moon conjunct Venus. When something doesn’t look right, it can set your emotions off.

While you are empathetic and sensitive, you may avoid dirty or messy situations. When things feel too hard to handle, you turn away. Beauty is what makes you happy, therefore you shy away from anything less than what you consider to be beautiful.

Moon conjunct Venus can make you a bit avoidant. You don’t like conflict and may go to great lengths in order to gloss over anything that would create problems.

You may have a strong desire for companionship. Love feels emotionally important, so you tend to be in relationships as much as possible. Love makes you feel emotionally content.

You may also engage in Venusian activities, such as shopping or eating, to feel better when you’re emotionally distraught. Be careful that you don’t use pleasure as a substitute for love.

Many of your Moon conjunct Venus qualities probably stem from your mother. You may have seen your mother use charm to get what she wanted or avoid problems and focus only on the beautiful elements of life. In this way, you would have learned how to behave from your mother.

Alternatively, you learned to charm your mother because she responded in the way that you desired. In this scenario, indirect tactics tended to work best, so you learned these Moon conjunct Venus qualities from your interactions with your mother.

This aspect can make you really creative and charming. Many famous artists and actors have this placement because it makes them feel so deeply.

However, you must be careful that you don’t emotionally manipulate others or use your charm or persuasion to get what you want. You know how to recognize and respond to other people’s emotions, but with Moon conjunct Venus, you have an opportunity to use your qualities for good.

Learn how to confront deeper emotions, even when they aren’t beautiful. Over time, you will come to realize that there is beauty in everything, even if it doesn’t feel Venusian at first, because reality has its own sense of artistry.

Moon Trine Venus

With Moon trine Venus, you’re naturally charming and charismatic. You put out a wildly appealing energy.

Even though others won’t know why they’re drawn to you, regular life just tends to feel more appealing or exciting when you’re around. 

Your natural sense of charm will be especially apparent in the signs of the Moon trine Venus aspect. For example, with an air sign trine, you will be chatty and charming in social circles, while a fire sign trine gives you a more fiesty, outgoing appeal.

With Moon trine Venus, you can certainly “turn on” your charisma when you want to. This may even be subconscious because your allure is natural within you.

You have a strong need to be around people with Moon trine Venus. This can manifest as a desire for relationships, friendships, or even just social groups.

Moon trine Venus generally indicates social success. You may “fall into” friend groups or relationships with very little effort; this can be astounding to someone without this aspect.

This aspect also indicates a great sense of style that is completely yours. In fact, your emotions influence your style, so you tend to dress and decorate your home in a way that represents who you are.

You must be careful that you don’t grow lazy with the Moon trine Venus aspect. Although most of these qualities are good, it’s easy for you to start expecting people or relationships to work out.

Don’t rely too heavily on your natural sense of charisma. You have a keen awareness of what other people need, but make sure that you dig deep and actually get to know people, beyond just getting what you want.

From time to time, you’ll find that you need to retreat and have a few days of solitude. Make sure that you take this time for yourself! 

With Moon trine Venus, it’s essential that you have space to emotionally recharge. 

Make sure that you confront the difficult things in life, too. With Moon trine Venus, it’s easy to ignore anything unpleasant and skirt the issues using your charm and sense of intuition.

However, it’s important that you learn to see the beauty in things that appear ugly as well as the parts of life that you feel are beautiful.

Moon Sextile Venus

If you have Moon sextile Venus in your chart, you generally have a good sense of people. Your natural charm makes you generally well-liked, regardless of whether or not you’re outgoing.

With a bit of effort, you can develop the skills to present yourself in a way that makes people want to be around you. Moon sextile Venus gives you the tools you need to learn how to read others and respond accordingly.

Moon sextile Venus can make you popular if you’re willing to put work in and enhance your social skills. You have a great emotional appeal just waiting to be developed.

However, you must be careful that you don’t become a pushover. You tend to seek out bonds that are charming and pleasant, with no source of tension. In this long run, these types of relationships won’t help you.

Learn to stand up for yourself when you need to. You may have an emotional fear of conflict, so you come across as shallow, but the truth is that you’re afraid.

With Moon sextile Venus, you can enhance your social skills, but you can also face your fears surrounding conflict in a relationship in order to have more authentic communications.

This aspect means that it’s time to let others meet you halfway. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice yourself every time.

Learn how to develop your sense of charm and your eye for beauty, but don’t ignore the more unpleasant aspects of life along the way. In fact, you will come to realize that there is beauty in both the good and the bad; that’s what makes life real.

Moon Opposition Venus

With the Moon opposition Venus aspect in your natal chart, your emotions and your love life are at cross-purposes. You may feel that you can never be completely emotionally satisfied and have a fulfilling love life.

These difficulties extend to social relationships in general. You may feel emotionally blocked around others. You have trouble reading the social or emotional cues of the people around you and may respond in ways that don’t endear you to them.

Most likely, the issues caused by Moon opposite Venus started in childhood. You felt unloved by your parents, or simply believed that they could not fully understand you. This may have been especially prevalent with the mother.

Now, you unconsciously remember these childhood lessons and they cause social problems for you. The main source of your inability to socialize is most likely your own insecurity. Others feel this insecurity (that you desperately try to hide) and feel like you’re concealing something important.

With Moon opposition Venus, you come off as insincere or disgenuine. You try to play a part with other people and put on the face that you think they would like, so that you aren’t rejected, but this actually makes other people want to distance themselves from you. After all, most people can innately sense sincerity.

Others may perceive you as cold, unfriendly, distant, or superficial. You tend to lack warmth when you’re socializing, and if you do try to show affection, it may seem as though you have an ulterior motive, generally due to your unbalanced emotions.

When you are rejected, your own negative beliefs and insecurities are simply reinforced. However, you take steps to avoid dealing with your insecurity that comes with Moon opposition Venus.

For example, you may focus on luxury items, clothing, food, or anything in excess. You might also look totally to your relationships to “fix” these problems in you, or obsess over the status of your relationships and how they appear to others.

In fact, Moon opposition Venus means that you might get into difficult relationships quite often. You’re willing to compromise what you need emotionally in order to have a relationship and will put all of your energy towards your partner.

You may even try to obtain or keep a partner through questionable means like manipulation, blackmail, and other tactics that have very little to do with love. You could experience a variety of unfulfilling relationships, repeating the same steps over and over, until you work on the problem within yourself.

What you don’t realize is that you only do this because your own emotions are out of balance. Looking to external sources will never truly fix the disharmony within you.

To heal Moon opposite Venus, you must go within and deal with the painful emotions that are deep in your unconscious mind. These will be the false beliefs that you absorbed about yourself in childhood.

It’s essential that you do this work in order to have real, valuable relationships in your life. Otherwise, you will always see relationships as a game, with a winner and a loser.

When you start to feel possessive, jealous, or insecure, this is a sign that your Moon opposite Venus aspect has been triggered and that it’s time to work on self-acceptance. You may even need time alone to do this.

Your relationships will truly transform as you work through the difficulties that come with Moon opposition Venus. Over time, you will find that the type of relationship you desire is different than you ever pictured.

Ultimately, this aspect takes a lot of work, but it can also push you to become emotionally fulfilled and to only invest in relationships that feel truly fulfilling.

Moon Square Venus

With Moon square Venus, your emotions are at odds with the way that you show affection. You struggle to be affectionate in a way that feels authentic, but you also have trouble getting affection and love from others that is emotionally satisfying.

The things that you want out of life, especially your social life, don’t line up with what you really need emotionally. You may find that you’re always pushing for something (like social success) but you never feel totally satisfied.

The Moon square Venus aspect is the placement of the person who desperately wants to belong to the best group, only to find that they still feel empty when they finally get there.

On some level, you measure your success by Venusian qualities with Moon square Venus. This will depend on the signs that the aspect is in. For example, you may measure your worthiness by the extent of your social circle, by the beauty of your home or clothes, or by the amount of money you make and spend.

Alternatively, you could look to your romantic relationships as a measure of success, based mainly on what the relationship appears to be.

None of these things fulfill you emotionally, yet you continue to search from them with Moon square Venus. You might really believe that once you reach your Venusian goals you will feel happy. However, this never happens.

You are ignorant of your own emotional needs as well as those of others. When you’re in a group setting, you may only care about talking to the most important people. This won’t satisfy you emotionally, but you additionally have no qualms about stepping on others to get where you want to go.

With Moon square Venus, you may feel a chemical euphoric release in your brain when you achieve something Venusian. Unfortunately, this does not help you work through your emotions or satisfy you over the long haul.

You’re chasing emotional fulfillment in all of the wrong ways. Over time, you must learn to let go of the Venusian things and focus inside, on your own emotions. When you’ve successful done this, you will also find that you begin to feel empathy and compassion for others in a way you didn’t before.

Self-discipline isn’t a hallmark trait of someone with Moon square Venus. Anyone with this placement wants things easy and quick, and may even be lazy.

However, in order to gain true emotional fulfillment, you will have to consciously step back and do the tough, painful work to confront your own demons and deal with the feelings you have repressed.

Saturn-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Saturn-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Saturn aspects to the North and South Nodes tend to indicate karmic bonds, especially in the synastry chart. If you find these aspects in your chart, then you can intuit that you probably shared at least one (or many) intense past lives with your partner.

With these aspects, the Saturn person is often the voice of reason or the teacher, though they can also become too oppressive or fixated on maturity.

Meanwhile, the Nodal person is the one trying to actively change and grow. The Saturn person can help or hinder them in their growth.

These relationships can be very serious and fated, but both people must be willing to work through their problems from the past life relationship in order to transform.

Saturn Conjunct North Node Synastry (Opposite South Node)

If you have the Saturn conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you also have the Saturn opposition South Node synastry aspect. One cannot exist without the other.

With Saturn conjunct North Node synastry, the Saturn person tends to introduce discipline and structure to the Nodal person. This can be a positive or a negative relationship.

The Saturn person probably plays the role of a teacher. While this is a difficult aspect because the North Node person must be ready to accept these lessons, it can also bind a couple together once they come out on the other side.

The Saturn conjunct North Node synastry relationship can help both people evolve into a better version of themselves, if both partners are willing.

Typically, the Saturn conjunct North Node synastry relationship is karmic. This means that, with this aspect, you knew each other in a past life. 

However, this aspect also indicates unresolved karma. Your purpose here is to heal from this karma and change the relationship into something better, something new.

The Saturn conjunct North Node synastry relationship does indicate a challenge relationship. Because you’re healing karma, this relationship is bound to be difficult.

Although the Saturn person can help the North Node person grow up and face their soul’s purpose, they can also exert too much pressure on the nodal person. 

It’s important that the Saturn person learns how to loosen up and be less oppressive.

Meanwhile, the North Node person must be willing to do a lot of soul growth in order to make this relationship work.

Ultimately, the Saturn conjunct North Node synastry relationship is both karmic and beneficial, if both people are willing to work on themselves over the long haul.

Saturn Trine North Node Synastry (Sextile South Node)

If you have the Saturn trine North Node synastry aspect, you may have the Saturn sextile South Node synastry relationship, though this isn’t always the case.

With the Saturn trine North Node synastry aspect, there is a strong bond between the couple. This relationship has a serious energy to it, but both people tend to support each other’s growth.

The Saturn trine North Node synastry relationship doesn’t always last, but regardless of whether or not the couple stays together, they will grow quite a bit from the partnership.

It’s common for someone to mature and grow up very rapidly in one of these relationships. Each person will feel older and wiser after learning from their partner.

With Saturn trine North Node in synastry, this learning happens naturally. Just by being around the other person, you’re furthering your soul growth.

In this relationship, the Saturn person teaches the North Node person how to be more serious and mature, while the North Node person may teach the Saturn person how to overcome their karma.

Remember that pain can teach too, so this relationship isn’t necessarily all roses. However, the Saturn trine North Node synastry relationship is always beneficial for both people in the long run.

Saturn Sextile North Node Synastry (Trine South Node)

If you have the Saturn sextile North Node synastry aspect, you may have the Saturn trine South Node synastry relationship, though this isn’t always the case.

This aspect gives the Saturn person the opportunity to teach the North Node person lessons that can help to evolve their soul.

These lessons can be painful or easy; the Saturn sextile North Node synastry aspect doesn’t indicate how these lessons are taught.

However, the Saturn person can choose to actively help the North Node person on their path to soul growth in a way that is beneficial and non-oppressive.

The Saturn person must actively take on this responsibility. Sometimes, they may feel as though they’re parenting the Nodal person a bit, but they won’t mind this when they see the benefits of their work.

Typically, the Saturn sextile North Node synastry relationship indicates a karmic past life together. In the beginning of the relationship, both partners must work to heal their past life karma.

Next, the partners can work to evolve towards their ideal relationship.

Saturn Conjunct South Node Synastry (Opposite North Node)

If you have the Saturn conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you also have the Saturn opposition North Node synastry aspect. One cannot exist without the other.

The Saturn conjunct South Node synastry relationship indicates a very intense karmic bond. When the couple first meets, they will be drawn to each other immediately because they are bonded from a past life.

Although it feels like they’ve each met their soul mate, this relationship can be incredibly challenging.

This relationship can grow serious very quickly. While the couple feels intensely bonded to each other, they also may feel held back, as though they’re reenacting a past relationship.

It’s important that you learn how to evolve together. With the Saturn conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you must first heal your past life karma, but you must also push each other towards future soul growth.

If you remain stuck in the past, you will start to feel like the relationship is holding you back and this may be your downfall. However, you may stay together out of duty, or because you feel a sense of karmic responsibility.

The Saturn conjunct South Node synastry relationship has one single purpose: to heal the unfinished karmic business from a past life.

You may need to overcome problems or challenges together, making your relationship feel especially hard. However, this is how you will heal your karma.

You need to work through your karmic debts in order to set each other free. Once you’ve done this, you can choose to stay together or break apart.

Over time, the Saturn person must learn that it’s natural for the Nodal person to reach for something new. When the Nodal person works towards their North Node, this can trigger the Saturn person, but the couple must evolve together or the relationship won’t work.

Likewise, it’s important that the Nodal person works to heal the more negative qualities in their South Node and actively seeks soul growth in order to heal karmic debts.

If you don’t heal your karmic debts, then you may end up with each other over and over when you try to break free.

May want to break free, but you end up together over and over.

Saturn Square North Node Synastry (Square South Node)

If you have the Saturn square North Node synastry aspect, you also have the Saturn square South Node synastry aspect. One cannot exist without the other.

With the Saturn square North Node synastry aspect, the Nodal person may feel restricted by the Saturn person, as though they can’t grow or heal.

This aspect usually indicates a painful karmic past. In a past life, this couple created wounds together that must be healed.

The Saturn square North Node synastry aspect means that the Saturn person tends to especially restrict the Nodal person in healing this karma. In this partnership, you may feel like you’re hitting your head against a brick wall.

You truly want to heal your karmic wounds and you may feel as though you must stay together until something is fixed energetically, but you just can’t seem to make this happen.

Sometimes, the Saturn square North Node synastry aspect indicates that the couple may actually repeat the actions of the past in this lifetime. Their past life together was probably very recent, so it’s extremely difficult to act differently.

Remember that everyone has a choice! Even with Saturn square North Node in synastry, you can choose to do things different.

The first step is to look at the signs and houses that the Saturn square North Node synastry aspect sits in and determine what the wound was in your past life.

Next, you must find a way to heal your own wounds and change the reactions within you that hurt your partner.

Ultimately, this is a very deep bond that can transcend time and space if both partners are willing to do the spiritual and emotional work.

Midheaven In Scorpio, IC In Taurus

Midheaven In Scorpio, IC In Taurus

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. The IC shows the qualities that you learned in childhood and the environment that you wanted to escape.

In order to get away from the values of the IC, you push towards the Midheaven. In fact, the Midheaven is how people tend to perceive you in the outer world, but more specifically in your career. Although you may embrace the qualities of your Midheaven, the IC always exists underneath.

The IC in Taurus placement is all about living by other people’s values in childhood. As an adult with Midheaven in Scorpio, you seek to individuate and figure out what’s real for you.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other.

IC In Taurus:

With your IC in Taurus, you lived with “set in their ways” types of parents. In some manner, your parents were very traditional. They followed a certain set of rules and may have employed black and white thinking.

However, this also means that in these specific way, your home life was stable. You knew that certain things wouldn’t change. IC In Taurus manifests differently for everyone, but there were at least some constant things about your childhood.

Most likely, your parents lived by societal rules in some manner. They were traditional and created a clear set of boundaries that you needed to follow as a child.

IC in Taurus also means that you probably felt misunderstood with your family at times. It might have seemed that everyone else fit into the mold, but you felt different.

At times, you felt that you couldn’t express the deepest part of you because you had to stick to the family structure. You didn’t have the freedom to completely be yourself.

You parents or caretakers deeply influenced your childhood with their own set of values. In certain areas, you weren’t allowed to explore or develop your own set of values. Instead, you were expected to believe what your parents taught you.

This created a very structured sort of childhood. You couldn’t deviate from the norm, or you would be punished and looked down upon. 

Although your parents were headstrong and set in their ways with IC in Taurus, you were probably just as bullheaded. This might have caused some issues because neither side would back down during fights.

However, you may have also learned some positive lessons about strength from your childhood. Now, you probably have stubborn personality pieces, too.

Ultimately, there were no exceptions in your childhood. You had to follow the rules regardless of how you fel.

With your IC in Taurus, you didn’t feel that you could negotiate or explain your side.  You felt like you had no power, though you definitely tried to exert yourself.

You may have also felt that you needed to earn your parents love in some way. You may have felt that you were deserving of love because of what you did, not because of who you were.

In both cases, the IC in Taurus leaves you feeling inauthentic. You had to follow the demands of someone else, even when they conflicted with your own personal beliefs.

Midheaven In Scorpio:

Now, with your Midheaven in Scorpio, you start to reevaluate your values and compare your beliefs to those of your parents. You were never given the opportunity to develop your own self of morals, so the values that you do come up with might be the exact opposite of your parents’ morals in some ways.

As an adult, you may feel a lot of resentment towards your parents’ values. You were restricted in childhood and hold a lot of deep anger over these experiences.

It’s important that you work with this intensity. This is how you will dig deep and discover what matters to you, and your own values will probably shape your career.

You may come off as dark or tortured, or even seem like an enigma. However, this is important to you because you feel strongly about representing your deep self. You want to be nothing less than truthful, no matter how dark or twisty the truth is.

In your career and public image with Midheaven in in Scorpio, you specifically try to show the parts of you that appear deep and interesting. You want to be seen as someone profound, contrasting with the surface level rules and values you were taught in childhood.

Your appearance sparks intrigued. Something about the way you come off is dark and complicated, so people are drawn to you and want to learn more about what’s inside.

However, you don’t reveal all of your depth with Midheaven in Scorpio. You’re careful to curate an image that displays your best qualities so that you won’t be attacked.

You may also like being a little mysterious because you learned that there’s power in mystery.

In your work, you want to create or uncover something profound. Midheaven in Scorpio is all about contributing something important to the world. You will never settle for surface level work.

With Midheaven in Scorpio, you’re also attracted to power, as with any Scorpio placement. This is because you felt powerless as a child, so you want to appear important now. Power can become your safety net.

You’re hungry and ambitious, so you can be very successful in your career. Once you put your mind to something, you won’t stop until you achieve it.

However, your career must mean something to you. You work has to be an expression of who you are and must reflect your authentic values.

Keep in mind that with Midheaven in Scorpio, you can grow to possess unhealthy power, or this Scorpionic influence can be transmitted for good, helping you make an impact on the world.

Work to wield your power wisely. Don’t get caught in the dark and depressive elements of Midheaven in Scorpio, but instead discover your truest values and use them to shape the world around you.

Ultimately, you don’t ever want to earn love or have to play by other people’s rules. You desire to do what you want, when you want, and find people who accept this.

To heal your inner child with Midheaven in Scorpio, release the hangups you have that don’t serve you. Learn how to be authentic without needing to control the situation or prove anything to other people.

Instead, when you heal your inner child, you will show your truest, authentic self without reservation or fear.

Sun-Nodal Aspects In The Natal Chart

Sun-Nodal Aspects In The Natal Chart

In the natal chart, the South Node represents a past self and the qualities that you’re evolving away from, while the North Node is the point that shows how the soul wants to grow. The North Node tends to feel more uncomfortable because the work is new, but the qualities of the North Node will ultimately bring you fulfillment.

When your Sun sign aspects your Nodes in the natal chart, this shows to what extent your ego, will, or sense of identity is aligned with your purpose.

Hard aspects indicate that your ego will refuse to do soul growth, while easier aspects indicate that your ego will want to do the work of your North Node.

Sometimes, these aspects also show to what extent development of the self is important in your journey to soul growth and fulfillment.

Sun Conjunct North Node (Opposite South Node)

If you have the Sun conjunct North Node aspect in your natal chart, you also have Sun opposition South Node, because the Nodes always sit exactly opposite each other.

With Sun conjunct North Node, your soul’s mission and your conscious self are one in the same. This means that your ego or your sense of willpower automatically supports your life’s purpose.

Your mission in this lifetime is to develop your sense of individuality. Although the path can be hard, the goal is to truly know who you are by the end of your life.

It’s also important with Sun conjunct North Node that you learn to express your truest self fully, regardless of what others think. This is the highest manifestation of the ego, but it’s actually quite hard to be authentic at all times.

Your soul’s purpose is closely linked to the development of the self in this lifetime, so while this can be a difficult path, you’ll find that every obstacle in your life pushes you closer to this goal. Ultimately, you want to know yourself on every level.

With Sun conjunct North Node, your personality may be a bit extreme from a young age. You tend to know what you think about everything, but this is usually how you’re working to discover your truest inner self.

You may be drawn to parts of your Sun sign in excess with Sun conjunct North Node. For example, it might be very important that you feel seen, and you may go out of your way to exert your will or achieve something.

The more negative side of the Sun sign can appear in your personality, too, such as boasting, exaggeration, or acting like royalty.

Your confidence will be magnified with this aspect, at least on the outside. However, when you find yourself boasting or acting overconfident/selfish, this is a sign that you have not discovered your true sense of self within. Often, these mannerisms are a way for someone with Sun conjunct North Node to make up for the lack of self within.

This aspect usually means that in a previous life, you had to serve or assist others to the point where you forgot who you truly were. With Sun conjunct North Node, you denied your own needs for so long that you don’t know what they are anymore.

You forgot to value and appreciate yourself. Although this aspect was set in motion during a past life, you may have experienced some of these feelings in your childhood, too. 

Now, you must learn how to be independent and stay true to yourself, even if others don’t like this. You need to learn that if something is actually true for you and not a manifestation of ego, then it can’t be wrong.

Sun conjunct North Node can sometimes indicate that you had issues with your father figure as a child. Maybe you didn’t have a proper father figure and felt that a part of you was missing, or perhaps you had a fraught relationship with your father that left you feeling less-than.

Alternatively, you may have a wonderful relationship with your father figure and it may be this very person who helps you learn how to find your sense of self.

Usually, Sun conjunct North Node indicates that your father in this lifetime is a karmic figure and that you have lived many past lives together.

Sun conjunct North Node is all about discovering who you are and developing your most positive, high-vibrational sense of self. Don’t let your ego overshadow your spiritual quest here, or it will be much harder to learn about the inner you. 

Find things that feel your ego in a healthy way. This means that you want to look at the qualities of the sign that Sun conjunct North Node is in and work to evolve the best qualities of the sign within yourself. This is what will push you towards soul growth.

You may want to fall back into the mold from your childhood or go along with other people’s opinions, but you need to push in order to break out, even if it feels uncomfortable. We tend to feel most uncomfortable moving towards our North Node because it’s unfamiliar, so Sun conjunct North Node can be a difficult placement because your very Sun sign feels uncomfortable!

This is all because you don’t have a strong sense of self. You must change and evolve from who you were in childhood in order to find out who you are now. Work to develop your inner self and move towards soul growth without letting your ego take over.

Remember that your will, or your identity from your sun sign, will feel right. It’s a grounded feeling in your gut, while giving into the ego will feel like you’re running from something.

If you’re able to work towards identity and soul growth with Sun conjunct North Node, then you can be quite successful in life. You’ll experience karmic good luck when you begin to develop your identity in the most positive way; this is how you will know you’re on the right path.

Sun Trine North Node (Sextile South Node)

If you have the Sun trine North Node aspect in your natal chart, you probably have Sun sextile South Node as well, though this isn’t always the case.

Sun trine North Node indicates that you’ve earned good karma in this lifetime. Circumstances will make it easier for your will, or your sense of identity, to align with your soul’s purpose.

Your truest self and your soul’s life mission are aligned with Sun trine North Node. This makes it easy for you to work on both your soul growth and developing your sense of self without conflict.

Spiritual development may come naturally to you, or at the very least, you’re able to figure out where you want to go in life. You naturally know what feels right for you at a core level.

You may have strong ties to your father with Sun trine North Node. In some way, your father helps you to move towards your soul’s purpose.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that you have a flawless relationship with your father figure, it simply indicates that your relationship in general is very beneficial for your soul’s growth. The relationship may still be painful, but it’s for your highest good.

Ultimately, Sun trine North Node is an easier aspect to have. You will still have to struggle for soul growth, as we all do, but your will and sense of self are aligned with what your soul desires.

Sun Sextile North Node (Trine South Node)

If you have the Sun sextile North Node aspect in your natal chart, you probably have Sun trine South Node as well, though this isn’t always the case.

Any sextile aspect means that the energy flows easily. However, sextiles still require a bit of work and aren’t as natural as a trine.

With Sun sextile North Node, you can align your conscious sense of self (the Sun sign) with your soul’s mission (the North Node). Your ego and drive can support your spiritual goals, but you need to work a bit to get these two planets to align.

Work on consciously using your ego and your will for soul growth. This means that you must use the qualities of your Sun sign to push towards your North Node.

You can simply ignore the North Node, but it will be much more beneficial with Sun sextile North Node to employ the qualities of your Sun sign when you’re doing Nodal work.

With Sun sextile North Node, you can also use your lessons learned from your father to push through your North Node. This means that you must dig into your parental relationship and deal with any painful ties to your childhood.

Although this can be difficult, Sun sextile North Node gives you a wonderful opportunity to do soul work at your own pace, using your own will instead of external circumstances that force you to see the truth.

Sun Opposite North Node (Conjunct South Node)

If you have the Sun opposition North Node aspect in your natal chart, you also have Sun conjunct South Node, because the Nodes always sit exactly opposite each other.

Oppositions generally indicate a lack of balance. With Sun opposition North Node, you tend to feel that you need to choose between your sense of self/identity and you soul’s purpose in this lifetime.

Most people with Sun opposition North Node tend to ignore the North Node in favor of the Sun. It may feel easier to deal with the Sun conjunct South Node aspect than to look at the North Node.

This is because your North Node is conjunct your Earth sign with this placement. Your Earth sign sits opposite your Sun (in every birth chart) and represents that qualities that the Sun is trying to push away from. Your Earth sign shows how you felt as a child, but these are usually negative feelings, so you want to move towards the Sun sign qualities.

Unfortunately, your Earth sign is conjunct your North Node with this placement, making the North Node feel even scarier. 

With Sun conjunct South Node, you need to face the opposition and create balance between the two signs, which will be opposites. Remember that there are always positive and negative qualities to every astrology sign!

Sun opposition North Node is all about dealing with the duality of the signs and finding the best qualities to express from each sign. For example, with the duality of Virgo and Pisces, you can choose to inherit the sense of order and structure from Virgo, leaving behind the judgment, and then express the spiritual side of Pisces without the fear.

In fact, I find that signs which sit exactly opposite from each other always have some things in common, too. Learn to find the commonalities in your placements.

The South Node isn’t inherently bad, but it does represent a past self. Transmute this self to create a higher-vibrational Sun with the qualities you desire without ignoring the North Node. 

The Sun opposition North Node placement is all about bringing the two together so that you can become one well-rounded individual. Don’t forget that you can have many sides to your personality!

However, you may not achieve as much recognition in your outer life as you desire, or you may go through life feeling unlucky. This is simply an indicator that your work is within in this lifetime.

Learn to exist in duality without sacrificing one part of yourself. Although Sun conjunct South Node/Sun opposition North Node is a difficult placement, you can learn quite a lot by dealing with the opposition head-on. In the end, you will come out with a strong and balanced sense of self.

Sun Square North Node (Square South Node)

If you have the Sun square North Node aspect, you also have the Sun square South Node aspect, making this placement especially difficult.

Squares indicate friction, but they aren’t all bad. They force you to deal with the problems. When you have a square in your chart, you will find that the issue shows up over and over until you work through it. There’s simply no ignoring a square aspect!

With Sun square North Node, there is a clash between your ego or identity and your soul’s life mission. Your ego doesn’t want to sacrifice for soul growth. Instead, it wants pleasure or instant achievement, so when you try to do long-term soul growth, your ego gets triggered.

This is when you feel friction. Over time, you must teach the ego that it’s OK to take a backseat sometimes. 

Sun square North Node means that your ego is afraid of disappearing. At its core, this is a valid fear, because then you would lose your sense of self or identity.

However, your sense of self doesn’t need to disappear just because you do soul growth. You can have more than one part of your personality/self. With Sun square North Node, it’s important that you teach your ego how to wait while you do soul growth, then tend to your sense of identity at another time.

The best way to do this is to suspend your judgments in order to do soul work. If you start to feel insecure at some point, know that this is your ego creeping in and work through it.

Ultimately, Sun square North Node means that a transformation of your ego and your life goals is necessary. Work on the values of the Sun sign in order to express the qualities that are for your highest good instead of those derived from ego.

You may also need to work through issues with your father in order to find true soul growth. If you don’t deal with any residual pain from the father figure, then you will run into this issue over and over, so it’s much better to face this pain and work through it.

In fact, working on your parental issues can be one of the best ways to move towards true soul growth with Sun square North Node.

Sun-Saturn Aspects In Synastry

Sun-Saturn Aspects In Synastry

Sun-Saturn aspects make any relationship feel incredibly serious. 

The Sun represents our inner adult, while Saturn can represent our inner parent. These relationships can sometimes feel like the Sun person is in a relationship with their parent, and this can be expressed positively or negatively.

Ultimately, these Sun-Saturn relationships are all about learning how to take responsibility for yourself instead of criticizing or trying to change your partner. These can be very influential relationships because they force growth on a deep level.

These contracts are generally karmic. Although you probably knew each other in a past life, your relationship wasn’t necessarily romantic. However, these relationships give you an opportunity to work out karma between the both of you.

Sun Conjunct Saturn Synastry

The Sun conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is a karmic placement. It brings a lot of difficulties into a relationship but also gives immense potential for growth.

Most Saturn placements in a synastry chart represent past life karma. Most likely, this couple has met before and is here to work out their karma.

In this Sun conjunct Saturn synastry relationship, Saturn tends to dampen the Sun’s enthusiasm and vibrancy. The Sun person can feel like their “light” doesn’t shine as bright when they’re around their partner.

Over time, this can make the Sun person resentful. They may feel like the Saturn partner criticizes them too much and never sees them as the person they want to be. The Sun person can feel held back from shining as bright as they’d like to.

Typically, the Saturn person doesn’t do any of this on purpose with the Sun conjunct Saturn synastry aspect. This is simply the energy of the relationship.

If the Sun person does grow and change, the Saturn partner can start to feel unsafe or insecure. If the Saturn person is willing to be open to new ideas, then they can evolve and change from the influence of the Sun.

In fact, the Sun person often comes into the Saturn person’s life in order to teach them something. Just by being themselves, they will shine light on the Saturn person’s issues and give them the space to work through their karma.

Over time, the Saturn person can confront their feels and discover who they truly are. They must be strong enough to do this work and to let the Sun person shine their light on them.

The Sun conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is all about growing. The Sun person can teach the Saturn person to let go of fear, but these lessons may be painful.

Although the Sun conjunct Saturn synastry aspect often shows up in fated, long-term relationships, the couple may also split after the initial lesson is learned. Look to the rest of the chart to see if there’s enough aspects to hold the partners together.

The outcome of the relationship will probably depend on whether or not the Sun person wants to stick around and deal with the Saturn person’s fears, but it also depends on the extent to which the Saturn person is willing to do the personal work to grow.

Ultimately, both partners must be willing to grow and change for this relationship to work. It can be quite painful if one partner holds back, but this partnership can be truly deep and wonderful should the partners choose to put their best feet forward.

It’s important to learn from each other with the Sun conjunct Saturn synastry aspect and to always dig deeper.

Sun Trine Saturn Synastry

With the Sun trine Saturn synastry aspect, you tend to naturally trust each other in a relationship and you work through problems as a team. 

The Saturn person will be very loyal to the Sun person and willing to go the extra mile to make the relationship work, while the Sun person gives the Saturn person a sense of joy and newness by shining their light on the relationship.

The Sun trine Saturn synastry aspect tends to bestow a deep sense of commitment to the partners. Unlike some of the other aspects, Saturn is less rigid and tends to be responsible for their partner instead of austere. The Sun person teaches their partner how to let their light shine through and have fun.

This relationship dynamic is simply natural with the Sun trine Saturn synastry aspect. Neither partner has to work to provide for the other.

Typically, the Sun trine Saturn synastry dynamics are overlap from a past life where the couple had some sort of karmic working relationship.

Sun Sextile Saturn Synastry

With the Sun sextile Saturn synastry aspect, the couple focuses on working towards common goals. They are effectively able to organize and plan for their future together.

There is an opportunity for the Saturn person to give the Sun individual structure, both in the relationship and in their separate life. Meanwhile, the Saturn person can learn how to be more creative and how to loosen up from the Sun person.

This couple can certainly learn how to do both of these things without feeling oppressed. However, the Sun sextile Saturn synastry aspect does require a bit of work.

This aspect often shows up when there is a need to heal past life karma. The couple had a relationship in a past life that was beneficial but also had some issues. 

With the Sun sextile Saturn synastry aspect, the couple can work through their control issues to find a deep and loving commitment that expands and grows with the relationship.

Sun Opposition Saturn Synastry

If you have the Sun opposite Saturn synastry aspect in your chart, you tend to feel very attracted to each other in the beginning of the relationship for karmic reasons.

During the early stages, the Sun person will like the Saturn person’s mature and responsible qualities, while the Saturn person will enjoy the Sun’s energy, creativity, vibrancy, and enthusiasm.

Over time, these same qualities in the Saturn person can start to be oppressive, restrictive, or even controlling to the Sun person.

They may feel that the Saturn person is always trying to teach or parent them and that their light is being snuffed out.

With the Sun opposition Saturn synastry aspect, the Sun person starts to feel drained over time because their ambitions, social life, independence, and even their very thoughts can be controlled by Saturn.

Both people may start to ignore all of the wonderful things they saw in their partner initially because these issues become so heavy. 

The Sun opposition Saturn synastry relationship can grow very negative. It can feel like a constant battle, with the Saturn person always trying to control and the Sun person trying to maintain their light. The Sun person may also be too immature to change the dynamics or to truly take responsibility for themselves.

Typically, people who enter into a Sun opposition Saturn synastry relationship are looking to fill certain roles. The Sun person is looking for someone to take care of them or control them, while the Saturn person is looking for someone they can control.

The Saturn person may come to dislike all of the fun, happy qualities they first enjoyed in the Sun person. They can try to change the Sun person or want them to be different than who they are.

If the Sun opposite Saturn synastry relationship is to work, then both people must learn to like the qualities in their partner that may be different than they expected. 

The Saturn person must especially work to not control the Sun person. Much of the need to control comes from fear. The Saturn person needs to be cognizant of when they try to snuff out the Sun person’s light.

At the same time, the Sun person needs to learn how to incorporate someone else into their plans and see that not everyone enjoys the same level of socialization and humor that they do.

Sun Square Saturn Synastry

With the Sun square Saturn synastry aspect, the Saturn person tends or judge and criticize the Sun partner. The Sun person will respond by being frustrated, angry, upset, or sensitive.

At first, the Saturn person may feel that the Sun person is overreacting to their criticisms. Over time, the Sun person can get really worn down and discouraged.

In the Sun square Saturn synastry relationship, the problem tends to lie with both partners. The Saturn person is too critical, but the Sun personal also takes everything quite personally.

The Sun square Saturn synastry aspect also means that problems may arise based on differences in the partners’ responsibilities and needs. They can view the word responsible in entirely different lights, and when they act different, this creates friction.

In order for the Sun square Saturn synastry relationship to work, both people will have to communicate and take responsibility for themselves instead of shifting the blame.

Venus-Jupiter Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Jupiter Aspects In Synastry

If you have Venus-Jupiter aspects in your synastry chart, your sense of love, romance, and affection is expanded. The relationship may feel larger-than-life, especially at first.

These aspects boost pleasure levels between a couple. However, you may also overdo things together or stretch the truth. This energy pushes you to hold onto the good, yet you may then ignore the bad.

Ultimately, Venus-Jupiter relationships can be really beneficial if you’re able to work through the over-expansive parts of these aspects.

Venus Conjunct Jupiter Synastry

The Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect means that you experience true joy when you’re together. Your relationship feels larger and more expansive than anything else you have experienced.

Jupiter expands, so in synastry, the more Venusian aspects, such as love and beauty, are magnified. You see wonderful qualities in each other and sense the elegance in your relationship.

With the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect, you look forward to seeing each other. You love to do just about everything together because being with your partner feels good.

As a couple, you appear exciting, alluring, charming, and amorous. Other people sense the energy that you feel, so they’re probably attracted to your energy when you’re together.

You’re probably fun and whimsical with the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect. You may like to flirt and try new things. Though this energy is mainly between the two of you, it’s possible that you also like socializing together because Venus rules social positions.

Although you appear larger than life, you even enjoy simple, mundane tasks together with the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect.

There is sometimes a student-teacher vibe with the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect. The Jupiter person tends to introduce the Venus person to new ideas, philosophies, or way of thinking, while the Venus person is the alluring, sensual, or social partner.

This aspect can also be beneficial on a more material or financial level. When you’re in a relationship with the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect, you could bring financial abundance and material gain into each other’s lives. The energy between you gives you finances an element of luck.

Although there are many great qualities of your relationship, you are prone to overindulgence when you’re together. This could manifest as overeating, overspending, being lazy, drinking too much, partying, or anything else that makes you feel good.

The Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect makes you feel so good together that you never want to lose this feeling, so you may go overboard to hold onto it. The methods of your overindulgence will be clear based on the sign and house that the aspect sits in.

You may experience a lack of discipline when you’re with each other. You each give your partner more than they really need, though it comes from a good place. For example, you might encourage your partner to spend more money or drink more, simply because you want to make them happy, but this hurts them in the long run.

It’s important that you learn how to ground yourselves. Don’t ignore the bad in favor of the good; learn how to give your partner the hard truths when necessary. 

Sometimes with the Venus conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect, you will need to face the ugly parts of life and work through hard things. This can feel terrifying because your relationship is so joyous and happy, but once you start, you will find that it’s better to deal with the issues in order to get back to a truly contented place.

Ultimately, you must learn how to take off your rose-colored glasses in the relationship and deal with practical realities without losing your sense of cheer in the relationship.

Venus Trine Jupiter Synastry

With the Venus trine Jupiter synastry aspect, you have natural understanding and respect in your relationship. You may have hobbies in common or you tend to like the same sorts of things.

You are able to look into each other’s hearts. Because of your insight, you have a true desire to make each other happy, so even when you fight, you both mean well.

The Venus trine Jupiter synastry aspect gives you a sense of natural trust. You’re always looking for the good in each other.

Things will get hard in any relationship, but you still want the other person to be happy. Your love is naturally expansive, so you always care for each other, no matter what happens.

You tend to truly enjoy the company of your partner with the Venus trine Jupiter synastry aspect. You probably laugh more than normal when you’re together and have a lot of jokes that only you and your partner understand.

Genuine affection is natural in this relationship. Warmth simply flows between the two of you. These qualities make you want to be around each other as much as possible.

However, this relationship is also beneficial in the real world, because you push each other to grow and succeed.

The Jupiter person especially expands the Venus person’s mind, offering intellectual insight and spiritual enlightenment. The Venus individual will give the Jupiter person love and affection, and may enhance the Jupiter person’s social standing, depending on the sign of the aspect.

Ultimately, the Venus trine Jupiter synastry aspect is truly beneficial in any relationship. Remember to deal with the hard stuff as it comes up in your partnership, and you will find that your expansive energy only grows.

Venus Sextile Jupiter Synastry

The Venus sextile Jupiter synastry aspect means that your relationship is expansive and romantic. 

You have the opportunity in this relationship to develop a true sense of love between the two of you. With a bit of work, your relationship can feel spiritually enlightened and far-reaching.

With the Venus sextile Jupiter synastry aspect, you can learn how to genuinely care for the other person. You probably feel intense romantic feelings right away, but over time you can expand this attachment into something deep and lasting.

The Jupiter person can open the Venus person’s mind, introducing them to new types of spirituality and philosophy. Meanwhile, the Venus person can provide a strong foundation of romantic love and may improve the social connections of the Jupiter person.

Keep in mind that the Venus sextile Jupiter synastry aspect does take some work. While you have the romantic energy between you when you first meet, you need to push against each other and dig deep in order to creating a truly lasting, attached relationship.

Venus Opposition Jupiter Synastry

With the Venus opposition Jupiter synastry aspect, you probably mask your true selves when you first meet. You each sense that you have found your ideal partner, the person who is everything you’ve ever wanted, and you don’t see the person beyond the mask.

You both wear rose-colored glasses in this relationship, at least during the beginning stages. Over time with the Venus opposition Jupiter synastry aspect, you try to keep the glasses on because the relationship makes you feel good.

This partnership can almost be an addiction. You want the idealized image of the other person, the partner that you saw at first, but this image isn’t real.

Over time, this image will come crashing down. You need to develop a bond that is deeper than your initial attraction, or the relationship won’t last over the long-haul.

You will realize that your partner is a different person from who you thought. With the Venus opposition Jupiter synastry aspect, you may come to see that you have very little in common and have different fundamental values.

These differences can be expectations about social graces, financials, beauty, spiritual values, political beliefs, or simply your morals. 

Often, this relationship simply comes to an end because you are disillusioned. There may be too many differences to handle. 

If you want the Venus opposite Jupiter synastry relationship to work, then you need to lay your differences in the open and accept the other person for who they truly are. Your partner will need to do the same.

You must accept the truth about your relationship. This is very difficult, because the truth won’t give you the same sort of “high” that you experienced around your partner in the beginning.

Learn to give your partner what they need, not what they want, and to see them for who they really are. This is the only way to turn the Venus opposite Jupiter synastry relationship into a long-term partnership.

You must push against each other and communicate in order to resolve your differences. 

Venus Square Jupiter Synastry

If you have the Venus square Jupiter synastry aspect in your relationship, you will sense that there’s something promising about your partner when you first meet.

For both people, it can feel like you’re living in a romance novel, at least in the beginning of your relationship. This feeling actually comes from the sense of friction that the square provides.

The Venus partner feels inspired and romantic around the Jupiter partner. They may be more sexually confident or feel ultra-attractive. They tend to enter into the relationship because of these wonderfully amorous feelings.

Meanwhile, the Jupiter person may feel especially expansive, philosophical, or spiritual around the Venus person.

In the Venus square Jupiter synastry relationship, you both have a tendency to take big risks, but you also experience large disappointments. Around each other, you may exaggerate or make false claims to your partner, or you may overspend, overeat, drink too much, etc.

Regardless of your personal life, these behaviors are heightened when you’re around your partner. It’s hard to control yourselves when you’re together.

The positive, expansive, generous energy from the beginning of the relationship can quickly turn into exaggeration or excess if you aren’t careful. You could take unnecessary risks together, stretch the truth but then keep secrets, or act too loving/touchy at inappropriate times.

With the Venus square Jupiter synastry relationship, you must be careful of your expectations. You both promise more than you can provide and assume that the other person will live up to their words.

Be careful of boasting or showing off. You tend to feel larger then life around each other, but this quickly gets you in trouble.

You may feel a strong sense of disappointment when the relationship doesn’t live up to the image in your mind. Unfortunately, your partner provides false claims that perpetrates this image, and you probably do the same in return.

If this Venus square Jupiter synastry relationship is going to work, then it’s very important that you both learn how to live with your feet on the ground.

You may not be sure what’s real at first, or what part of your partner’s personality is authentic. The way that this manifests will depend on the signs of the Venus square Jupiter synastry aspect.

It’s important that you ground yourself and try to work with your partner within the context of reality. Don’t take what they say and face value and be very careful of your own words, as you’re likely to stretch or change the truth.

Over time, you will learn how to be authentic with each other. This aspect takes a lot of practice to overcome, but it certainly is possible.

Moon-Venus Aspects In Synastry

Moon-Venus Aspects In Synastry

Moon-Venus aspects in synastry reveal a couple’s potential for emotional balance and graciousness. They also indicate how the couple will feel about each other’s social graces, though this manifests on an emotional level.

Though these aspects aren’t indicative of a past-life or soulmate connection, the beneficial aspects make a relationship seamless and harmonious, while the difficult aspects can foster resentment.

Moon Conjunct Venus Synastry

With the Moon conjunct Venus synastry aspect, you recognize each other’s energy when you first meet. The relationship feels comfortable, heartfelt, and loving.

Others can see this loving, beautiful nature in your relationship. It’s very emotional and is influenced by Venus, the planet of love and affection. You may be the couple who has a beautiful home, dresses wonderfully, cooks for your friends, etc.

The way that the Venus person shows love tends to be soothing to the Moon person. The Venus person is able to make the Moon person feel safe.

Meanwhile, the Moon person appeals to the love language of the Venus person. They’re able to bring out the Venus person’s more affectionate and emotional side.

This Moon conjunct Venus synastry relationship will be filled with sweetness and affection. Both partners genuinely enjoy each other, even if they’re not doing anything.

It can also be a beneficial aspect socially. Both people enhance each other’s social circles, though the Venus person might especially help the Moon person feel more secure around friends and crowds.

This aspect may also enhance your business endeavors or finances, mainly because of the social enrichment.

You enjoy being together because you have such a lovely energy between the two of you. The Moon conjunct Venus synastry aspect makes even boring tasks feel pleasant and exciting.

Everything just feels more beautiful and incredible when you’re together. You easily cooperate together because you intrinsically understand each other.

However, the Moon conjunct Venus synastry aspect can sometimes be a bit too close. You may start to grow codependent.

It’s important that you remember to deal with your feelings on your own. Your partner makes everything seem so beautiful in this relationship that you could avoid the more distasteful parts of your emotional self, but that will ultimately hinder your growth.

Taking time apart can be helpful. It’s common for partners with the Moon conjunct Venus synastry aspect to try and spend every second together, but balance is needed if this relationship will work in the long run.

This conjunction can be truly wonderful if both partners are evolved and independent, but it can be destructive and hinder growth if the partners are emotionally needy or try to heal themselves through each other.

Ultimately, you can create a really beautiful relationship with the Moon conjunct Venus synastry aspect. When you combine your power, you can be a nurturing couple, both to each other and to people outside of your relationship. 

Moon Trine Venus Synastry

With the Moon trine Venus synastry aspect, there is a natural sense of affection in your relationship. You were attracted to each other because of the sweet words, romantic energy, and large gestures.

You naturally like each other, especially at first. This is an aspect that can be helpful to activate during times of conflict.

The Moon trine Venus synastry aspect means that there is a romantic connection, which may translate to deep talks that are often emotional.

You are naturally drawn to each other on an emotional, energetic level, and you find each other very affectionate, appealing, and warm.

The Moon person probably makes the Venus person feel loved and cared for, especially on the emotional level, while the Venus person encourages the Moon person and understands their feelings.

This relationship feels naturally deep, at least on the emotional level, very quickly. With the Moon trine Venus synastry aspect, you understand how to show love to each other and can make each other feel beautiful, whatever that means to you.

The Moon trine Venus synastry aspect gives you a natural sense of aesthetic appreciation. You probably like the same types of things, so this is another part of your relationship that just flows. You may be drawn to the finer things in life when you’re together.

Other people can feel this warm and affectionate energy when they’re around you together. It’ll be quite obvious that you’re deeply connected.

You may be especially impactful on the social scene. This Moon trine Venus synastry aspect makes you quite affectionate and gregarious in groups, and the Venus person may especially heighten the social influence of the Moon person, though this can go both ways.

Ultimately, this is a very beneficial aspect. However, you must remember to go beyond the more shallow parts of Venus and the knee-jerk emotional wants of the Moon to discover deeper parts of the self in your relationship, too.

Moon Sextile Venus Synastry

If you have the Moon sextile Venus synastry aspect, you have an opportunity to develop real affection and beauty in your relationship.

You probably have a similar appreciation of art or aesthetics. You both know something beautiful when you see it and you have a taste for fine things together.

The Moon person tends to make the Venus person feel cared for and adored on an emotional level in this partnership, while the Venus person provides the Moon person with respect, affection, and beauty.

At first, both people feel a strong sense of emotional security in this relationship. Over time with this Moon sextile Venus synastry aspect, you have the opportunity to deepen the emotional connection between you.

You can learn how to connect beyond the surface level, in a way that is sustainable and true. However, this Moon sextile Venus synastry aspect won’t force you to connect; this is up to both of you.

You can easily become afraid of confrontation and start to hide your true emotions from your partner. This is one of the downsides of the Moon sextile Venus synastry aspect. Over time, you will lose your sense of emotional security.

With this aspect, it’s very important that you do the work to connect on a deep level so that you don’t lose your sense of connection and trust. Learn to be honest with each other in a way that is sincere and empathetic.

Ultimately, you want to figure out how to share your true feelings without hurting the other person. You don’t love in the exact same way, so you need to communicate, but this Moon sextile Venus relationship can be very harmonious and warm with a bit of effort.

Moon Opposition Venus Synastry

With the Moon opposition Venus synastry aspect, the way that the Venus person shows love triggers the Moon person.

Sometimes, this friction can be beneficial since it forces the Moon individual to work through their emotional issues or trauma, if they’re willing. However, the relationship can turn nasty if the Moon person tries to avoid how they feel and wants to change the Venus person.

For some couples, this Moon opposition Venus synastry aspect is gentle and constructive. The openness of the Moon person appeals to the Venus person, who will then be gentle emotionally.

In this scenario, both people have vastly different natures, yet they’re able to learn from each other and evolve.

However, the Moon person can project all of their negative emotions onto the Venus parter if they aren’t careful or if they grow to dislike their partner. Venus will be forced to absorb all of the Moon’s emotions, both good and bad, and may feel trapped.

With the Moon opposite Venus synastry aspect, you’re both sensitive to each other’s emotions, though this sensitivity is enhanced for the Venus individual.

The Moon person has an opportunity to push against the Venus person and work through their emotions as well as their childhood trauma, often relating to the parents or mother. However, this is hard for the Venus person because they absorb these emotions.

Over time, the Venus person can feel drowned in a sea of emotions, especially if they’re negative.

This Moon opposition Venus synastry aspect is often dictated by the Moon person, at least on some level. If they’re willing to do the work and take responsibility for their own emotions then this relationship can truly blossom and the couple can experience beautiful, warm, emotional closeness.

Moon Square Venus Synastry

With the Moon square Venus synastry aspect, you experience restless energy in your relationship. The attraction between you is very strong because squares create friction, but you both express your emotions in completely different ways.

Your love languages may be different. For example, you may take each others’ actions for granted, fail to give adequate praise, or give gifts that don’t line up with what your partner wants.

The way that you experience romantic gestures is at odds with the Moon square Venus synastry aspect. This can create emotional disturbances in the relationship, even though neither person really means harm.

You may live beyond your means together or seek to keep up appearances in some way. Alternatively, you argue about petty things instead of dealing with your deeper resentments towards each other.

In the early stages of the relationship, you are very attracted to each other and will probably ignore any irritation that you feel. Over time, your relationship may develop a lot of strain with the Moon square Venus synastry aspect because you don’t express love in the same ways.

You tend to remain intensely attracted to each other, even after lots of fighting, but you also feel like something is off emotionally. The Moon square Venus synastry aspect makes everything feel confusing and hard to figure out. It’s truly a love-hate relationship.

This aspect may also appear when socializing or with company. You might act differently around others or dislike how each other acts, or you may run into problems when you’re deciding to get married or figuring out how to raise your children.

On a more personal level, your moods don’t always match up. For example, one partner may want to have sexual relations while the other desires romantic love or friendship at any given time.

The Moon square Venus synastry aspect indicates lifestyle and social differences. Though these problems may seem small, they tend to build up over time.

The Moon may lash out emotionally (in a way that is consistent with their Moon sign) while the Venus person probably pulls away and goes towards the things/people that are pleasing to them.

If the couple doesn’t work to heal this Moon square Venus synastry aspect, they may always feel a vague sense of dissatisfaction in the relationship, even if they remain together.

In order to heal this aspect, the Moon person needs to work through their emotional feelings on these differences. Ideally, the Venus person is open to communicating and getting to the root of issues.

This couple should also work on communication. They are fundamentally different and simply don’t understand each other, but they can learn to see the world from the other person’s point of view.

Moon-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Moon-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

The North and South Nodes show the native’s past lives and the direction of the soul’s evolution in this lifetime. When someone’s Moon aspects their partner’s Nodes in the synastry chart, this often indicates an emotional past life connection.

It also shows that, as a couple, you have the potential to grow on the emotional level together, though you may need to work through some trauma first. These relationships generally center around nurture and security.

These Moon-Nodal aspects depend quite a bit on the sign and house of the aspect. This is where the emotional growth or traumas will appear.

Moon Conjunct North Node Synastry (Opposite South Node)

If you have the Moon conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you also have the Moon opposite South Node synastry aspect.

This aspect creates a deep emotional bond in your relationship. You will find great meaning in each other.

The North Node person tends to act as a role model for the Moon person while they grow and heal their emotional self, while the Moon person gives the Nodal person the stability to push towards their soul’s purpose.

This relationship will be centered around nurture and emotional security. Ideally, the Moon person gives the Nodal person a strong emotional foundation so that they can grow into who they’re meant to be.

With the Moon conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you experience intense attraction at first, but your relationship is distinctly emotional. You may feel that your relationship is meant to be, so it’s a hard bond to break, even if you hurt each other.

You instinctively recognize each other from a past life through your soul memory. However, with the Moon conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you’re together in this life to grow and evolve.

This relationship is centered around growth. You won’t get stuck in the past, although you do recognize each other’s energy. Even if you part, you will feel attached to the memory of the other person. There are strong energetic bonds that tie you from past lifetimes.

Sometimes, the Moon person may feel that they give more emotionally than the North Node person, but this won’t cause much of an issue. The Moon individual is able to provide the support the North Node person needs to push and evolve towards the North Node.

In this lifetime, the North Node person has earned this sense of emotional security. In turn, the North Node individual might bring the Moon person luck or happiness; they give off a glamorous vibe that makes the Moon person feel emotionally fulfilled.

With this Moon conjunct North Node synastry aspect, the Moon person helps the North Node person to feel safe and nurtured, but they also show them how to be more caring, kind, and emotionally expressive, especially in the sign that the conjunction is in.

The North Node person helps the Moon individual grow in the outer world. They give the Moon person a clearer sense of their emotional nature and can aid them in healing their wounds.

Although the Moon conjunct North Node synastry aspect can be a bit intense while you’re actively working towards healing, you should remember that it’s normal to feel uncomfortable as you evolve. Ultimately, you are teaching each other important lessons that will contribute to promote soul growth in this life and the next.

Moon Trine North Node Synastry (Sextile South Node)

If you have the Moon trine North Node synastry aspect, you most likely also have the Moon sextile South Node synastry aspect, though this isn’t always the case.

This aspect indicates a past life emotional relationship. This contact could have been romantic, familial, or friendly, but you were certainly intimate with your feelings, at the very least.

With the Moon trine North Node synastry aspect, the Moon person acts as a safe haven for the Nodal person to push against their past and evolve towards their North Node sign.

The Nodal person may feel that they can be vulnerable with the Moon person. This is simply natural; the energy just flows. The Moon person pushes their partner to heal from their past and grow, even if this isn’t a conscious action.

On the other hand, the Nodal person helps the Moon person deal with their emotions, potentially overcome issues with their mother figure, and delve deeper into their subconscious mind. Again, the Nodal person might not actively mean to do this, but their energy simply helps the Moon person naturally.

The Moon trine North Node synastry relationship can be very fulfilling. You feel like you’re growing together and understand each other on a very deep level, separate from the rest of the world.

This relationship can even be life changing. You each intuitively sense what the other needs and wants, and you can act on your intuition to create a safe space just for the two of you.

Even though this Moon trine North Node synastry relationship is a beneficial aspect, it still requires work, just like any North Node aspect.

At times, the emotional intimacy can feel almost uncomfortable, but it’s always beneficial because it pushes you to grow in a positive direction.

Moon Sextile North Node Synastry (Trine South Node)

If you have the Moon sextile North Node synastry aspect, you most likely also have the Moon trine South Node synastry aspect, though this isn’t always the case.

This aspect indicates that you had an emotional relationship in a past life. This was a connection based on nurturing and taking care of each other.

Because of your energetic bond, you felt a sense of destiny or fate when you first met. Your relationship may have moved quickly or felt quite strong in this life since your ties remained in place from your past relationship.

Sometimes, the Moon trine South Node synastry aspect can make you feel like you’re family (even if you didn’t grow up together) or you may want to treat each other like family. This often goes a bit beyond romance since you fall back into your familial patterns.

The Moon sextile North Node synastry aspect creates a deep emotional undercurrent in your relationship. However, you have the opportunity to develop this further and grow from your past.

In fact, you can learn how to nurture each other in a way that moves you towards your souls’ purposes instead of getting stuck in the relationship from your past life.

Specifically, this is an opportunity for the Nodal person to work towards their soul growth/qualities of the North Node and for the Moon person to learn more about their emotions, about how to nurture themselves and someone else, and to work through their issues with their mother figure.

With the Moon sextile North Node aspect, both people must want to do the work to heal and grow. You can ignore this calling as a couple, but if you commit to dealing with your issues and don’t shy away, both of you have a real opportunity to grow.

Sometimes, this couple can become codependent or overly emotionally attached. They can feel dependent on each other because of their past life emotions. This makes it very hard to move on if the relationship ends.

Of course, both people have the opportunity to push past codependency, but they must choose to do this.

Moon Conjunct South Node Synastry (Opposite North Node)

If you have the Moon conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you also have the Moon opposite North Node aspect in synastry. You can’t have one aspect in a synastry chart without the other.

This aspect represents a strong past life connection that was imbalanced in some way. Typically, the Moon person was the one taking care of the Nodal individual.

Sometimes, this aspect could represent a mother-child past life relationship, or a partnership where the Moon person was much older and had to nurture the Nodal person, even if the relationship was romantic. In some way, these partners weren’t equal in this past life.

The Moon conjunct South Node synastry aspect is formed through an imbalance of nurture. When you meet again in this life, you feel a sense of security, familiarity, and emotional safety, at least at first.

There is an instant attraction with this aspect and it often feels quite positive because you recognize each other. You sense a similarity in each other and recognize that you both need the same kind of security.

The Moon conjunct South Node synastry relationship makes you feel a lot of comfort in the relationship, as though you’ve found a refuge, but you may not feel that you’re moving forward. When you’re together, you tend to fall back on old patterns for consolation instead of growing and learning.

Both people might start to feel that they’re going in the wrong direction, even though the relationship felt “meant to be” in the beginning. Over time, it starts to feel wrong on a deep, core level.

Both people may feel indebted to each other in some way. The Moon person feels like they have to take care of the South Node person, while the Nodal person feels like they simply can’t let go of the emotional security and turn their back on the Nodal person.

This Moon conjunct South Node synastry aspect can make the Moon person feel extremely drained over time, while the Nodal person can start to feel held back by the lack of emotional growth or change.

To make this relationship work, both people need to push beyond the comfort zone. They must start taking responsibility for only themselves without losing their sense of empathy for their partner.

Additionally, both partners need to balance things out emotionally. This can be very hard to do, but it is possible and can help both people to heal past life wounds.

Moon Square North Node Synastry (Square South Node)

If you have the Moon square North Node synastry aspect, you most likely also have the Moon square South Node synastry aspect, though this isn’t always the case.

This aspect creates an instant feeling of recognition. Your emotional bodies sense each other, even if you don’t mentally know the other person.

It’s very difficult to resist the energetic pull that you feel when you first meet. Over time, you will find that this square aspect creates a lot of friction, but in this specific case the square can be helpful.

This relationship will be filled with constant tension. This is painful but also forces you to grow, both emotionally and on the soul level.

Often, the Moon square North Node synastry aspect indicates an unresolved emotional issue between partners in a past life. This was a painful split that was never healed, so while they don’t technically have a problem with each other, this turbulent energy remains.

It’s as though exes are meeting again after a nasty split. They don’t logically remember each other, however their energetic bodies hold the memories of what happened.

The same issues that caused issues in your past lives will spring up in a similar manner, even in this life. You will run into similar relationship problems over and over with the Moon square North Node synastry aspect.

This friction can be uncomfortable and indicates many ultra-emotional fights. If you’re able to work through these emotions, then you will both come out much stronger and more evolved.

The Moon square North Node synastry aspect can also indicate issues with how you nurture each other. Again, this comes from a past life. You will need to learn how to comfort and nurture in a way that the other person understands and accepts.

Often, the couple isn’t able to work through the trauma of the past and splits up quite dramatically. Although this is always a possibility, a split indicates that you will have to come together in a future life to fully work through these issues.

However, if you can deal with these nurture issues and communicate to meet in the middle, then you can grow as individuals and in your relationship as well as heal some of your personal karma.

Midheaven In Pisces, IC In Virgo

Midheaven In Pisces, IC In Virgo

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. The IC shows the qualities that you learned in childhood and the environment that you wanted to escape.

In order to get away from the values of the IC, you push towards the Midheaven. In fact, the Midheaven is how people tend to perceive you in the outer world, but more specifically in your career. Although you may embrace the qualities of your Midheaven, the IC always exists underneath.

The IC in Virgo placement is all about feeling judged or wrong as a child. When you become an adult, you try to expand and escape the box that you feel you’re in through your Midheaven in Pisces.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other.

IC In Virgo:

With your IC in Virgo, your parents were tough to please. Although you were the golden child in some way and had your parents’ full attention, you also felt constant the pressure because all eyes were on you.

Being the golden child wasn’t as great as others may have thought. You never caught a break and always knew that you were being watched with high hopes.

In some manner, you were the smart or gifted kid in your family with your IC in Virgo. You may have also felt like the adult of your childhood friends; you never quite fit in.

As a child with your IC in Virgo, you were a perfectionist in certain areas. You were probably very hard on yourself because you had to take on large amounts of responsibility, so you always pushed yourself to do better in your hobbies, in school, at home, or in other areas.

Often, people with IC in Virgo grew up surrounded by adults. Although these folks are typically creative, they also felt the heaviness of being around adults and judged themselves compared to the grown-ups around them, which wasn’t an accurate reference.

With your IC in Virgo, you were scared by chaos. Order was the only way that anything made sense. You were always trying to sort and categorize things when your life felt out of control.

You truly believed that if you were able to organize and sort things, you could be someone worthy of love and transcend the judgments.

You probably had strict rules or standards that you had to adhere to. Even if your parents didn’t actually say what they expected from you, the weight of these expectations was enough to make you take on responsibility. 

If you ever failed to live up to your standards, then you felt that you had disappointed the whole world.

Because you always felt as though you were under a microscope, you looked for an escape. With IC in Virgo, this escape can come in the form of books, fantasies, music, activities, or even by playing games with yourself.

You may have been very creative and you used this creativity to get away from the heaviness of your life.

The reason that you tried to escape is because you needed to get away from the pressure of your IC in Virgo. For example, many girls with this placement want to live in a fairytale because it’s hard to cope with reality.

Your IC in Virgo childhood also generated a sense of shame or guilt. You had super high expectations for yourself and always felt that you weren’t good enough. There may be a vague sense that something is wrong with you deep down, that you can’t measure up, but you try to avoid these feelings at all costs.

To compensate, you attempted to be perfect. Ultimately, you felt that you were always hiding this “bad” self and attempting to only show others your best qualities, yet the “real” you always existed within.

You tried to fix everything and everyone, including yourself. If something went wrong, it was your responsibility to make it right, but your biggest project was creating a self that you could be proud of, someone who wouldn’t be judged.

Midheaven In Pisces:

As you grow into your Midheaven in Pisces, you start to feel that chaos is beautiful. Order still has a place, but it doesn’t give you a true sense of satisfaction.

You tried to fix yourself, to change yourself into someone you could approve of, but you never escaped the sense of shame that you were missing qualities or weren’t worthy of others’ affection. You find that order doesn’t actually change the problem.

With your Midheaven in Pisces, you start to understand that perfect order is impossible. There is beauty in the mess. You learn that things don’t always work out perfectly and that there’s bigger and better things out there than just being liked or judged.

However, you may come off as a bit depressed or erratic with your Midheaven in Pisces. You may also be ultra-messy, unorganized, or super-sensitive. These can seem like different qualities to others, but this way is actually better for you because of the judgment you experienced in childhood.

You’re a bit of a disappearing act. When you have Midheaven in Pisces, you’re erratic in your work. You might be super consistent for a month, then disappear for a bit. You work super hard when you’re excited about something, but as soon as that excitement fades, you’re onto the next thing.

It’s important that your work is meaningful to you. At all times, you need to feel that you’re contributing something creative and different to the world. You can be spiritual or gifted, but you’re also creative, dreamy, and a bit evasive.

However, it’s hard for others to pin down exactly who you are. With Midheaven in Pisces, you may come across as vague or aloof.

People with Midheaven in Pisces can feel lost. Sometimes, there is a lack of a sense of direction. It seems better to get lost in the massive chaos of the world than it does to be judged in your childhood, but you can then struggle because you don’t know where you end and others begin.

When this happens, you need to revert back to your IC in Virgo, clear your head, and use discernment to figure out how you feel. Ultimately, you should use your IC to dig deeper into your Pisces-like feelings to create a holistic picture of yourself.

More than any other placement, it is very important that you use both your IC in Virgo and Midheaven in Pisces. The Virgo/Pisces duality often requires elements of both signs.

It’s essential that you learn how to condense the energy of the world into a message that others can understand. Any work that you do will be very important and impactful. However, you need to integrate the messages you learned in childhood with who you are now in order to tap into this expansive energy and make it happen.

Healing your IC in Virgo is difficult, but it can be done by using your Midheaven in Pisces, by connecting to the energy of the Universe and learning that love is all around you.

Sun-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Sun-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

When one partner’s Sun aspects the other’s Nodes, it tends to shine a light on their soul’s purpose and illuminate both the past and the future.

The North Node represents what the soul is working towards, while the South Node shows the past self, or who one were in a past life. Because the Nodes are incredibly important in someone’s chart, another person’s Sun aspecting their partner’s nodes can have a very strong aspect.

These aspects are sometimes “soulmate” aspects because they indicate that you recognize each other from a past life.

Aspects to the South Node will feel comfortable immediately, but they can also hold you back from growing. North Node aspects to the Sun in synastry are more uncomfortable at first, but are ultimately more beneficial if you’re ready to change and evolve.

These aspects can make you feel like you’re meant to be with each other. However, you must be careful to keep your own identity separate and to remain an individual. Your path is always your own, but your partner can help you evolve and learn with these aspects.

Sun Conjunct North Node Synastry

If you have the Sun conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you will experience a relationship that is filled with growth and change. You both help to develop the talents and qualities of the other person, though this can be a bit much over time.

Your immediate attraction may be very powerful, whether this is a romantic or friendship aspect. Your bond transcends just typical romance.

The Sun person will express many of the qualities that the North Node person is trying to emulate. Although some of these qualities may feel uncomfortable to the North Node person, this is because it can be scary to grow.

The Sun conjunct North Node synastry aspect tends to be more uncomfortable or scary for the North Node person, while it feels natural to the Sun person.  

However, this relationship is attractive to both people because it feels like it’s really “going somewhere.” If you’re in a Sun conjunct North Node synastry relationship, you may be quite active, always learning new things or trying new activities.

This will be especially apparent in the sign that the Sun conjunct North Node synastry aspect sits in. For example, water signs make you want to grow emotionally, while fire signs are more physically or mentally active.

Sometimes, this aspect can indicate that you’re new to each other in this lifetime, that your souls haven’t met in a past lifetime. Look to see if there are other aspects (mainly to the South Node) that indicate a past life connection.

However, even fi you do have a past life connection, this Sun conjunct North Node synastry aspect will feel like brand new energy. You haven’t encountered these qualities in your partner before, regardless of whether or not you met in the past.

This relationship will truly focus on developing each other’s strengths. Look to the house that the aspect is in to see exactly where in your life these qualities will develop.

The North Node person will feel that they’re out of their comfort zone from time to time. If they’re ready to grow and change then they’ll embrace this readily, otherwise they may try to shun the relationship at some point.

Nevertheless, both people are drawn towards each other by very powerful and attractive energy. This relationship simply feels right, even if it’s scary.

Although the Sun conjunct North Node synastry relationship is often quite beneficial, this isn’t always the case. Even when the Sun person hurts the Node Node individual, this can lead to change, so sometimes this aspect manifests in a toxic way.

The outcome will depend on how much growing the Sun person has done. If they’re egotistical, then they’re likely to teach unconsciously through pain, while an evolved Sun would be much better at showing the North Node person the light.

Sun Trine North Node Synastry (Sextile South Node)

If you have the Sun trine North Node synastry aspect, you most likely have the Sun sextile South Node synastry aspect as well, though not always.

This aspect means that you have a clear connection in your relationship that feels important. Being together makes you feel like you’re really going places and moving forward.

Sometimes, you may feel that the relationship is destined or meant to be, especially when you first meet.

The Sun trine North Node synastry aspect indicates that you knew each other in a past life, whether your relationship was romantic, familial, or friendly. You are simply picking up where you left off.

The Sun person can naturally push the North Node person towards soul growth. This aspect might be almost unconscious, so the North Node person doesn’t have to try.

When the Sun person is around the North Node individual, they feel like their best self. They’re naturally evolving and clearing out their past karma through this relationship.

Although the Sun trine North Node synastry aspect isn’t always perfect – what relationship is? – you probably feel a positive energy around each other because you sense that you’re working towards something important and evolving as individuals.

Sun Sextile North Node Synastry (Trine South Node)

If you have the Sun sextile North Node synastry aspect, you most likely have the Sun trine South Node synastry aspect as well.

This means that you feel a strong immediate attraction because you know each other from a past life. 

The Sun sextile North Node synastry aspect keeps you in the past a bit, but it gives you the opportunity, as a couple, to work through your past life karma and evolve.

It may take you a bit longer to clear out the karma. This is an aspect that gives you a choice. You can simply ignore it in your relationship, but it’s really beneficial to use this aspect by digging deep into your emotions, healing old wounds, and pushing each other to grow towards your North Nodes.

Sun Conjunct South Node Synastry (Opposite North Node)

If you have the Sun conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you also have the Sun opposite North Node synastry aspect.

This aspect means that you know each other from a past life. You had a strong, deep relationship that may have been romantic, but could also have been a sibling or parent-child bond. You were very influential on each other in your past life.

Because of this knowing, you strike up an immediate friendship or feel that the other is quickly familiar.

The Sun conjunct South Node synastry aspect means that you’re picking up where you left off. At first, this is a really easy aspect and the relationship feels effortless.

Over time, the Sun person will feel safe and secure to their partner, but will also pull them back into the past life. The North Node may find that they avoid their issues and working towards growth when they’re around the Sun person because it’s easier to stay comfortable.

The Nodal person can start to feel suffocated if they want to grow, or they may start to sense that something about the relationship is simply wrong. At first, safety and security feel great, but the Nodal person will realize – even unconsciously – that they can’t grow without a bit of instability.

If the Nodal person does try to grow, their North Node qualities might trigger the Sun person. Our Earth Signs sit exactly opposite our Sun Signs (check out more about the Earth Sign here if you’ve never learned about this), and the Sun person is actively trying to get away from their Earth.

Unfortunately, each person is trying to grow in the exact opposite way, so when one person tries to expand and learn, it triggers their partner.

It’s important that both partners leave space for the other to grow. They won’t necessarily need to grow together, but they can help each other find the best qualities in their past.

Even the South Node and the Earth Sign have qualities that can be used for good. The problem is that each person embodied the most uncomfortable, or worst, qualities of these signs.

The Sun conjunct South Node synastry relationship can help you delve into your past and rewrite it, instead of simply ignoring it. However, this takes a lot of work from both people; each partner must be willing to contribute and face their darkest parts.

Sun Square North Node Synastry (Square South Node)

If you have the Sun square North Node synastry aspect, then the first partner’s Sun will also square the other’s South Node.

With this aspect, you feel as though you’ve known each other before. There is a strong pull when you first meet because you unconsciously remember your past life relationship.

Usually, the Sun square North Node synastry aspect indicates an unhealed wound from a past relationship. This square isn’t necessarily bad. In fact, it gives you an opportunity to heal this relationship.

Squares create friction which stimulates growth. By pushing against the Sun square North Node synastry aspect, you will run into issue after issue, but you will also heal a the trauma between the two of you.

You had a very deeply personal relationship that was broken or fragmented. Now, you still feel remnants of this energy and you must learn how to heal the wound and trust each other again.

Although the Sun square North Node synastry aspect isn’t easy, if both people are willing to do the work, you can evolve and grow quite a bit through the relationship.

Midheaven In Aries, IC In Libra

Midheaven In Aries, IC In Libra

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. The IC shows the qualities that you learned in childhood and the environment that you wanted to escape.

In order to get away from the values of the IC, you push towards the Midheaven. In fact, the Midheaven is how people tend to perceive you in the outer world, but more specifically in your career. Although you may embrace the qualities of the Midheaven, the IC always exists underneath.

The IC in Libra placement is all about being the peacemaker in childhood, but because the Midheaven is the opposite point, your Midheaven in Aries means that you push through to shine as an individual in adulthood.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other.

IC In Libra:

With your IC in Libra, you had to play the peacekeeper as a child. By necessity, your home was conflict-free.

Your parents probably taught you that you needed to save everyone, to make everyone else feel happy. You didn’t get to have any personal boundaries because it was your job to keep the peace between your other family members.

You were taught that you had to think of others instead of yourself. In fact, IC in Libra is all about the sacrifice of the self.

The feelings of other people, whether this was your siblings, parents, friends, teachers, or someone else, were more important than you own thoughts, values, and emotions. With IC in Libra, you weren’t often able to acknowledge how you truly felt.

As a child with your IC in Libra, you tended to follow others rather than lead. Your parents taught you to go along with the group, even if you thought differently.

You may have been punished or disapproved of if you expressed your own feelings, so you learned to keep them suppressed deep down. You probably didn’t even know what you actually felt or thought as time went on.

As a child with IC in Libra, you didn’t feel special or noticed. You had to blend in with the group. Superficiality was rampant in your family and things needed to appear happy and peaceful, even the appearance was a lie. You learned to suppress your own feelings in order to keep the image.

IC in Libra tends to be focused mainly on image. It manifests differently in every family, but the common thread is usually that you had to make things look a certain way. This conflicted with your own inner values and left you with a broken sense of self.

Because you were always doing what others wanted or trying to be someone who you thought you should be, you never developed a core sense of self or your own values in the world.

As an adult, you try to break away from your IC in Libra by focusing on what you want, not on what things look like.

Midheaven In Aries:

With your Midheaven in Aries, you strive to be independent. You need to get away from the job of peacekeeper that you were forced into as a child, so you try do what’s good for you.

Your Midheaven becomes especially apparent as you grow and leave home. You’ll start to see these qualities in yourself when you enter the career world, though you may revert back to your IC in Libra when you’re in a childhood setting.

In your career and in your outer life, you like to be the boss and follow your own instincts. With your Midheaven in Aries, you may come across as aggressive, but you’re also ambitious and hardworking. You will stop at nothing to achieve your goals.

Typically, people with Midheaven in Aries enjoy careers where they have a good degree of independence. These folks are born leaders!

With your Midheaven in Aries, you probably jump right into the action. You’re not afraid of chaos. In fact, you’d rather have things messy and real then orderly and fake.

You need hands-on positions because you don’t like to strategize for too long. Taking time to plan reminds you of your childhood and of the roles that you were forced into.

Thinking too much about how your actions will “look” makes you feel stunted because of your IC in Libra experiences. You aren’t afraid of failure and you will certainly try again until you succeed. You tend to rush in head-first in an effort to be your most authentic self.

However, you can also be publicly competitive and combative. You never want others to see you as the peacemaker, but you can go quite far to contradict this image. You may have a “me-first” attitude because playing nice triggers you.

While it’s understandable that you want to push away from your people-pleasing roots, you might get too aggressive in your career or public life and hurt other people who don’t understand your motives.

In your career, Midheaven in Aries can make you seem like you were born to lead. It gives you a sense of purpose that others envy.

You’re always trying to push through and show your real self. Every decision that you make comes from a need to be authentic. However, you may find that you react too harshly sometimes in an effort to break away from those Libran tendencies. Ultimately, it’s important that you do slow down to figure out who you really are and what values you have.

You need to heal your inner child and reconcile your trust issues surrounding peace. As an adult, you’re afraid of sitting still and of not fighting for yourself. What you may not realize is that peace wasn’t the problem in your childhood; the issue was inauthenticity. 

In fact, you can learn to be quite peaceful in your career and public life with your Midheaven in Aries. This takes practice, because Aries generally wants to rush in, but the goal here is really to develop a sense of self, not to wage war.

When you’re able to go back to your roots and deal with the trauma surrounding your IC in Libra, you will be able to transmute your Midheaven and use the best qualities of both Aries and Libra.

Learn that it’s okay to treat others well, as long as it feels right to you. A true sense of self doesn’t mean serving only the self. Instead, it means finding a way to be empathetic and kind while always remaining steady in your values, beliefs, and convictions.

Celebrities With Midheaven In Aries:

I find it really helpful to look at the charts of famous individuals, especially when I’m researching a public point like the Midheaven. In any chart, the Midheaven is the outer persona, the you that the public sees. This means that it’s easy to look at celebrities and figure out how they express the qualities of Midheaven in Aries.

Here are some of the most popular celebrities with Midheaven in Aries:

  • Kanye West
  • Bill Gates
  • Elon Musk
  • Meryl Streep
  • Meghan Markle
  • Tyra Banks
  • Charles, Prince Of Wales
  • John Travolta
  • Stephen King
  • Sting
  • Joan Of Arc
  • Jack Black
Venus-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Nodal Aspects In Synastry

Venus aspects to the Nodes often indicate feelings of fate when you first meet. These are strong love connections and are aspects that create instant attraction. This type of attraction is very Venusian in that it’s soft, alluring, happy, and pretty.

However, these aren’t necessarily lasting aspects. They’re often based on past life connections, but they don’t denote future connections in the same strong way.

Instead, you will need to look to other aspects in the chart to see whether there is long-term relationship potential. 

Sometimes, these aspects can make you feel stuck in the past. If you’re able to push for growth together then there is a lot of potential for these relationships to work.

Venus Conjunct North Node Synastry (Opposition South Node)

The Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect is the same as Venus opposition South Node in synastry. If you have one of these aspects with your partner, you’ll have the other as well.

With this Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you may feel like your meeting is fated. You recognize each other the second you spot each other.

At first, this relationship feels perfect, because it’s as though you’re supposed to be together. There is a strong energetic pull to each other.

You feel a strong desire to impress each other with the Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect. Your first meeting just feels really important!

Usually, the North Node person admires the more graceful, beautiful, attractive qualities of the Venus person. These qualities can be real, but they can also be more external or surface level qualities such as their social standing, appearance, or mannerisms.

The Venus person is drawn to the emotional maturity and inner strength of the North Node person, at least how they perceive that. They will often sense certain qualities in the North Node person, but they won’t know if these values are accurate until they know them on a deeper level.

The North Node person will feel like the Venus person is the way to achieve their soul’s purpose. After all, this person is trying to learn about the qualities of their North Node, and at face value, the Venus person shows them all of these qualities.

However, with the Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect, you may feel like something is standing in the way of your relationship working out over the long haul. The relationship needs very strong other aspects in order to continue.

The Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect can often indicate a fling. The initial attraction is strong between both of you, but it will fade over time because the attraction is based on appearances instead of truths.

The Venus person tends to have more superficial qualities than the North Node person realized. Even though these qualities reflect the North Node, Venus isn’t a sustainable planet and Venusian qualities are typically quite surface level.

After the initial attraction is over, the North Node person might realize that their qualities don’t quite line up. The Venus person can feel like their partner is too intense or deep, or that they’re simply on separate pages.

If you have the Venus conjunct North Node synastry aspect and want to make your relationship work, you need to develop a deeper relationship based on other qualities.

Don’t spend time obsessing over the initial attraction. Find other things that keep you together and work on developing those qualities.

The Venus conjunct North Node synastry relationship can certainly work, but this aspect alone isn’t indicative of a long-term partnership. Look to other aspects in the chart to determine the nature of the deeper relationship.

Many people find this aspect in their synastry charts of people who they simply had flings with. This usually indicates that the meeting happened to set the stage for a future meeting and longer-term relationship in a future lifetime.

Venus Trine North Node Synastry

With the Venus trine North Node synastry aspect, you probably felt an instant attraction and felt that your meeting was fated or meant to be.

This is an easy flow of energy here. Sometimes, the Venus trine North Node synastry aspect is so simple and easy that you don’t even notice it.

The Venus trine North Node synastry aspect indicates that you have mutual attraction and early love in the relationship. You simply feel good being around each other.

When you first meet, the North Node person sees likeminded qualities in the Venus individual. They see the outer qualities that they want in their North Node, so they sense that this relationship could bring them something deeper.

Meanwhile, the Venus person is attracted to the deeper qualities in the North Node person, though they may not be able to verbally explain this energy.

The Venus person can learn to trust the North Node person as they seem them grow into the sign. However, if they don’t recognize that the North Node person is actively growing, then the Venus person might struggle to feel harmony in the relationship.

The North Node person may feel opened to a world of possibilities with the Venus person. This is especially true for a male North Node person with a Venus woman, because her femininity changes his outlook on a lot of the values of the North Node sign.

However, the Venus trine North Node synastry aspect isn’t as intense as the conjunction. It’s a subtle energy that simply feels nice. 

You’ve most likely had past experiences, in past lives, as lovers or partners. This is why you have an instant attraction and feel loving with very little knowledge of each other. Your souls recognize each other immediately.

This Venus trine North Node synastry aspect tends to be karmic. Your relationship will feel like you’re picking up where you left off.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that your relationship is built to last. Many karmic relationships are meant to be short-lived while others are for a lifetime. Look to other aspects in the chart to learn more about your relationship.

The most important thing with the Venus trine North Node synastry aspect is that you work to motivate each other at all times. This relationship can feel easy, but it’s important that you don’t become complacent.

Ultimately, you have a lot to teach each other!

Venus Sextile North Node Synastry

If you have the Venus sextile North Node synastry aspect, your relationship was probably romantic from the very beginning.

You naturally enjoyed being around each other and felt pleasure in the presence of the other person. 

The North Node person was probably interested in the Venus person because of their appearance, mannerisms, social status, money, etc., while the Venus person was interested in the North Node person because of the deeper, intense vibes that they gave off.

The Venus person tends to look for something deeper in the North Node person. They feel like they can change their life. Meanwhile, the North Node person sees a beautiful, pleasant life with the Venus person, and they want that.

With the Venus sextile North Node synastry aspect, you see very pleasant aspects of each other at first. This doesn’t mean that your relationship will necessarily work; this aspect is simply indicative of the attraction for the first two months.

Eventually, the North Node person can come to feel that the Venus person only has these fun and beautiful qualities on a superficial level, while the Venus person can get tired of the depth that the North Node person desires.

This relationship can work if there are other aspects in the chart that denote a strong connection. The Venus sextile North Node synastry aspect isn’t necessarily a yes or a no.

It’s important that you don’t get caught up in these initial happy feelings. Look for deeper connections if you truly want this relationship to work over the long haul.

Venus Opposition North Node Synastry (Conjunct South Node)

The Venus opposition North Node synastry aspect is the same thing as Venus conjunct South Node in synastry. If you have one aspect, you also have the other, because the Nodes are always opposite.

You probably have a feeling of instant attraction. At first, you may also have a strong need to be with the other person quite often. 

When you first meet someone who you have the Venus conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you might feel as though you already know each other. The energy is familiar.

This aspect indicates a relationship in a past life. Although you weren’t necessarily married, this relationship was certainly romantic. 

Because of this, you both feel very loved and attracted initially with the Venus conjunct South Node synastry aspect.

Unlike the North node aspects, Venus conjunct South Node in synastry is more indicative of a long-term relationship, mainly because you’re falling right back into your relationship from a past life.

However, the Venus person might reinforce the past behavior of the Nodal person. Being around the Venus person causes them to fall deeper into their karmic baggage, so it’s hard for them to progress towards their North Node.

The Nodal person feels a fated quality to the relationship at first, but over time, they may start to feel like they’re held back from really progressing. The relationship is comfortable but also start to feel wrong because it’s based on the old them.

The South Node is a very challenging point. If you’re the Nodal person, you are trying to push past your tendency to depend on others and to learn how to find happiness within yourself. 

When you enter into a relationship based on the South Node, you can feel like you’re in the relationship for optics, not based on an authentic connection.

With the Venus conjunct South Node synastry aspect, you may both feel like you outgrow the relationship at some point. The Venus person can start to feel like they’re putting in too much effort, too, because the Nodal person is super focused on moving towards something else. 

This aspect can even be considered that of star-crossed lovers. You may want to be together but feel like something keeps you apart.

If you’re able to grow together with this Venus conjunct South Node synastry aspect, then it can certainly work. The Venus person must learn how to encourage the North Node person in their growth.

Venus Square North Node/South Node Synastry

The Venus square North Node synastry aspect means that you also have the Venus square South Node aspect in synastry. If one person’s Venus squares the other’s nodes, then it squares both of the axises.

There is a strong initial attraction with this aspect, even if it isn’t acted on. However, it isn’t as easy as the other aspects. There’s a bit more tension here that creates an energetic pull.

You may have differences between your goals in a relationship. The Venus person tends to want to live in the moment and focus on their pleasure, while the North Node person might be more serious or focused on long-term goals.

The Venus square North Node synastry aspect means that there are clashes between what you desire for your future. Although the attraction is strong, these differences can create issues down the line.

At some points, you may feel like you have outgrown the relationship or that the other person is holding you back. This can even be the initial feeling in some ways. You’re certainly attracted to each other, but something about the relationship can feel wrong or scary, too.

The Venus square North Node synastry aspect often indicates a past life romantic wound that must be healed between the two of you. In a past life, you had a relationship that ended badly, so that energy carries over into your relationship now.

However, this relationship can be healed if you desire. You simply must push through the charged energy to find what is beautiful in the other person.

You may see only the ugly or difficult parts of the relationship with the Venus square North Node synastry aspect. For the partnership to work, you need to look again and find beauty in the unexpected. There are many wonderful things about your partner that you only need to discover.

As partners, you can push each other to grow. In fact, you will probably change and learn new things just be being around each other.

The Venus square North Node synastry aspect can be very painful because it creates many misunderstandings. However, if you’re able to work through these issues, then you will grow as people and heal past life trauma together.

Venus Trine South Node Synastry

The Venus trine North Node synastry aspect creates an instant sense of recognition. You will feel as though you’re returning to someone you previously knew.

In a past life, you were lovers or had a romantic relationship at some sense. This makes you feel, at least at first, as though you can experience true love through this relationship.

You may fall back into your past selves automatically with Venus trine South Node in synastry. At first, this feels glamorous or exciting. You may get a sense of social status, financial security, or of romance through the looks and mannerisms of the other person.

However, the relationship may not last beyond this initial attraction. It’s easy for both partners to get stuck in the past.

Although this Venus trine South Node synastry aspect is a trine, it can actually be a bit difficult. The Venus person can hold the South Node person back a bit from achieving their Node North or soul’s purpose.

The North Node person will need to push through and do the self work to grow. The Venus person must be open to this grow and not be threatened by the Nodal person’s growth.

It’s possible for this relationship to work as long as the couple keeps moving and growing. Look to other aspects in the chart in order to learn more about this relationship.

Venus Sextile South Node Synastry

The Venus sextile South Node synastry aspect means that you may feel a sense of instant recognition. In a past life, you were likely lovers or romantic partners in some way.

At first, you feel like you’re falling back into something safe and comfortable. You may also get a sense of glamour from the relationship, whether this comes through social status, money, looks, mannerisms, career status, etc. You can get hooked pretty quickly because it feels so exciting.

Over time, the Venus sextile South Node synastry relationship can feel easy but a bit wrong. You may start to feel stuck or like you should be doing something differently. You notice that these glamorous things start to feel very surface-level.

This is because going backwards, while comfortable, doesn’t feel good. Your soul knows that you need to be pushing forward and learning.

If you’re able to push through and motivate each other to progress then this relationship can work.

Either person can start to feel held back; over time, both people will need more. Sometimes, the Venus person feels like they owe the South Node person due to past life interactions, while the South Node person feels that they’re stuck in the past, however neither person feels that things are quite right.

It’s important that you do emotional work separately and together. The Venus sextile South Node synastry aspect won’t force you to do this work, but you will feel much happier in the relationship if you make the choice to do it.

Mercury-Neptune Aspects In The Natal Chart

Mercury-Neptune Aspects In The Natal Chart

Any Mercury-Neptune aspects in your birth chart will make your mind work differently. Neptune can create illusions, but it can also be deep spirituality and intuition, so it changes the hard, conscious, logical Mercurian mind.

People with Mercury-Neptune aspects can be extremely spiritual and creative, changing the world through their art, communication, writing, or even styles of speaking.

However, these folks can also be prone to deception, create illusions for themselves, or live in a fantasy world.

Mercury Conjunct Neptune

With Mercury conjunct Neptune, your senses are heightened in communication. You are intuitive and creative, and you tend to have a real appreciation for things that make you feel a certain way.

You may be especially talented in the arts, literary endeavors, or in design.

However, Mercury conjunct Neptune can be difficult because you may be unsure what’s real and what’s false. You absorb so much information yet you struggle to filter out what is background noise, what is private, etc.

It’s hard for you to focus on facts with Mercury conjunct Neptune. Your perceptions change based on what you wanted and you start to think that your fantasies are reality.

With Mercury conjunct Neptune, you also pick up on the feelings of people around you. This can be good, because you can easily read others, but it can also overwhelm you. It’s hard for you to create clear mental boundaries and to discern what you think.

Although there are a lot of difficulties with Mercury conjunct Neptune because you struggle with rationality, you also have a lot of strengths. When you’re able to separate fact from fiction, you have possession of both logical thought and extremely strong intuition.

You have incredible sensitivity and creativity. Mercury conjunct Neptune can help you be very successful in artistic careers as well as careers with healing.

Be careful that you work hard to stay truthful. You may have a tendency to stretch the truth, even if you don’t realize this, because you start to believe what you’re saying.

Learn how to separate your imagination from from reality. You can certainly appreciate your imagination, but you need to look at it for what it is.

With Mercury conjunct Neptune, you can learn how to tune into the more subtle aspects of life. For example, you may be able to sense the moods of other people or find the truth in a situation using your intuition.

It’s also important that you focus on higher spirituality (psychism, energy work, etc.) instead of getting stuck in your fantasies or falling into addictions. Mercury conjunct Neptune tends to make someone either super spiritual or dependent/addicted. 

This is because you want to live in a beautiful world. Reality can feel too wrong or hard. However, as you develop your spirituality, you will learn that reality is better because it’s real, even if it’s hard.

It can be helpful with Mercury conjunct Neptune to learn how to put up shields and wards around your energy. Similarly, boundaries are really important in communication. Both of these practices will help you separate from other people and figure out what’s real for you.

Mercury Trine Neptune

Mercury trine Neptune gives you naturally acute spiritual senses. You easily pick up on vibrations, sometimes without realizing it.

You are naturally open to spiritual concepts, or you may have natural psychic abilities. If you don’t feel that you’ve accessed this side yet, then you most likely at least have strong hunches and intuitive senses without even realizing this.

On a personal level, Mercury trine Neptune gives you a charming way of speaking. People tend to enjoy talking with you, especially one-on-one.

When you’re communicating, you probably use symbols, metaphors, and abstract words without even realizing what you’re doing. Your way of thinking isn’t always linear, but this tends to help rather than hurt you.

You also read people naturally. You tend to pick up on mannerisms or energy that others might not see, even if this isn’t conscious.

With Mercury trine Neptune, you’re naturally creative and can think outside of the box when you need to. 

Many of these folks tend to be “go-getters” in career. They truly believe that the sky is the limit!

Ultimately, you have a strong sense of expansion and natural intuitive abilities. With a bit of practice, you can hone these skills even more. 

Be careful that you don’t take these things for granted with Mercury conjunct Neptune. Not everyone is able to do what you can!

Mercury Sextile Neptune

Mercury sextile Neptune means that you are extremely sensitive to energy and vibrations. You may be very creative, especially when it comes to words.

Many people with this aspect do well in careers like poetry, writing, acting, or anything romantic and imaginative.

You have a strong sense of intuition with Mercury sextile Neptune, though this tends to be especially potent during communication. You have great senses about other people whether or not you utilize these skills.

However, Mercury sextile Neptune gives you the opportunity to further develop these impulses. Your intuition may be subconscious or unconscious. You can bring it conscious with this aspect!

You may struggle to figure out when you’re using your intuition versus your rational mind. Mercury sextile Neptune means that you can work to separate those successfully and utilize the best elements of both.

With Mercury sextile Neptune, you should follow your intuition. You may get hunches about negative people and it’s important that you act on these, because you’re often right.

Stay away from negative energy as much as possible. Your energy field is porous, so you tend to absorb negativity from other people or entities. Learning to ward yourself can be helpful, too.

Some people with Mercury sextile Neptune have difficulty handing math, science, or other complex studies that require a strictly logical way of thinking. Don’t worry if this is the case! Remember that you have very special talents with Mercury sextile Neptune that are specific to you.

Mercury Opposition Neptune

With Mercury opposition Neptune, your perception of reality is weakened. You can hear and process information, but by the time you interpret it, the information may have changed.

This is often because you can filter out the clutter in the world and get to the important information. You tend to get hung up on things that aren’t all that essential.

Your weaker processing skills also cause you to communicate information in a way that seems untrue. Others may think you’re lying, even if you intended to be truthful.

The way that Mercury opposition Neptune causes problems for you will depend on the signs of the aspect. These issues could arise more when you’re communicating, listening, reading, writing, etc.

For example, one person with Mercury opposition Neptune may struggle in communication and speak too much or too often, while someone else may have a learning disability or Dyslexia. 

Others simply have a hard time with spelling, math, or following clear formulas. These folks tend to exist on a slightly different mental plane, but they tend to have trouble living on earth.

With Mercury opposition Neptune, it’s important that you keep your flaws conscious in your mind. Otherwise, you will forget that you’re even perceiving things differently.

Learn how to double-check your words and perceptions. Turn to those you trust to see if your perception is reality. 

Be careful that you don’t fall into the trap of thinking your way is always right. It’s easy for you to feel a bit egotistical and feel that your thoughts must be correct, but they’re actually distorted quite often.

With Mercury opposition Neptune, it’s really important that you learn to determine when your ego has jumped in. That is when your thoughts and perceptions will be influenced.

Ultimately, you have a hard time separating fantasy from reality, or you may swing back and forth between intuition or logic. You never really know what to believe because there are two truths at any one time.

Your mind is often foggy. You simply don’t know what’s real. However, it’s important that you learn to integrate your logical and imaginative minds while knowing which one is talking.

Focus on your deepest emotions with Mercury opposition Neptune. You probably have unpeeled layers that influence your logical thoughts, so when you dig deep and work through your feelings in a logical way, you’ll be able to see reality much more clearly.

You will know you’re on the right path with Mercury opposition Neptune when your intuition and logic start to agree

Mercury Square Neptune

If you have the Mercury square Neptune aspect, you probably enjoyed living in your own worked as a child. You actively daydreamed, pretended, or fantasized. 

Now, you are skilled at reading other people and at sensing information because you developed these qualities. However, you might also have trouble concentrating because you tend to fall back into fantasies.

With Mercury square Neptune, you may stretch the truth a bit, whether or not you consciously realize this. You may know you’re doing it at first, but over time, you start to believe your own lies.

If you don’t do any work on this aspect, you can even become persuasive and manipulative. It’s important that you do the work to figure out what is real, otherwise you may start to lie anytime you want reality to be different.

You may be a bit vague when speaking or writing. It’s hard for you to take on an opinion because you change your mind often; you can see various viewpoints so it’s hard for you to be black or white.

Mercury square Neptune means that your method of communicating can be a bit self-defeating. You tend to talk yourself out of things or give up on things before you’ve even started, because you’re already onto the next fantasy.

You do have psychic skills. However, it can be hard for you to figure out what you’ve had a psychic experience and when you’re simply using your imagination.

It’s very important with Mercury square Neptune that you figure out how to discriminate between your imagination and reality. Even intuition is a part of reality, while imagination is separate. Otherwise, you could simply be a dreamer forever.

You must learn how to live in reality and still be able to access your intuition. It’s perfectly fine to fantasize or create an imaginary world, but it’s essential that you remind yourself that it’s not real.

Work on setting routines for yourself and double check your logic with Mercury square Neptune. Don’t assume that anything is true. Check the logic and check your intuition before you believe anything.

Although Mercury square Neptune can be a difficult aspect, you will also have a strong grasp on the rational and intuitive minds when you work through these issues. Plus, you can be incredibly creative and imaginative in just about any area!

You’re a natural leader when you need to be, though you also reach out to those around you for support. With Sun trine Mars, you can play many roles, but one thing is for sure: you never stop moving!

You’re never afraid to try something new with Sun trine Mars, as long as you’re actually interested. Your personal will (the Sun) is what gets you moving.

Sun Opposition Mars

The Sun opposition Mars aspect creates a combative, aggressive attitude. You may feel like you’re filled with hot energy that has no good outlet.

This is because the identity and ego of the Sun clash with the drive and aggression that is Mars. It’s as though you’re always fighting against your need to take action because you feel that you shouldn’t.

If you don’t find a way to release the energy that Sun opposition Mars creates, you may find that you explode in anger or even experience physical pain.

Sun opposition Mars makes you look to non-direct methods first, in competition, so you don’t get the physical outlet you need. For example, you may resort to cheating, lying, or violence in order to achieve your goals, but you feel even more angry than before and you can’t figure out why.

You take shortcuts because you don’t know how to do the work to get what you want. After, your frustration increases.

Other times, you may seek out adrenaline rushes with Sun opposition Mars in an attempt to release some of your rage. This can even mean that you take out your anger on other people and get a thrill out of the fight or drama.

Other people may find you overly assertive or aggressive. You tend to jump straight into fights because you don’t really understand the repercussions of your actions on your relationships and your life.

It’s very important that you learn how to release your excess energy in a healthy manner. Otherwise, you stand to lose a lot with Sun opposition Mars. Your anger could spiral out of control and cause real damage.

You must physically release this energy before you can do any inner work. Once you’re tired out, then you should examine your ego and look at what it’s afraid of.

Often, the Sun opposition Mars placement indicates issues with the father and with authority. You rebel against anyone and everyone in an unconscious effort to defy your father. Over time, this will only cause you problems.

You will also figure out how to tone down your ego and your aggression. These same qualities can be used in healthy ways, such as at work to achieve a goal or sexually in a relationship.

Be careful of risky situations. You seek out opportunities to rebel with Sun opposition Mars, but you quickly get into trouble too, because you aren’t careful. Don’t alienate the people who support you.

Ultimately, you must learn how to defend only the things that are most important to you. This is where your assertion will come in handy.

Sun Square Mars

With Sun square Mars, your energy builds up inside to create severe tension. This heat needs to be released through self-expression, sports, physical activity, sex, or fighting.

Though you have a lot of active energy, you struggle to assert yourself at the right time. You may say or do nothing, so the energy builds and builds until you explode.

Sun square Mars can also manifest as excess aggression. You tend to feel restless or impatient because you of the tension that is always growing inside of you.

You might be afraid that you aren’t really courageous. After all, you don’t stick up for yourself and release the energy at appropriate times. Therefore, you unconsciously attract situations or people that require you to prove yourself and show your courage.

For example, you may avoid standing up for yourself with friends and family in a nature way, but you attract and participate in bar-fights or brawls. This is how you manage to release your excess energy.

With Sun square Mars, your aggression comes out sideways. You probably struggle to maintain your drive when you’re going after a goal, but you’re overly aggressive or action-oriented in other, unrelated areas.

You may struggle when dealing with conflict, or perhaps you have issues with physical vitality. Your sex drive could be non-existent, too strong, or some odd combination.

The Sun square Mars aspect indicates that you were scarred in childhood. Your self-esteem was damaged, and you have some truly negative beliefs about yourself. You try to overcome these beliefs by proving yourself, yet you never find the satisfaction that you seek.

You might prove yourself through physical fighting or through hard work, struggling to accomplish something large. These issues typically stem from your father and your need to prove your worth to him.

In some ways, you’re a self-starter with Sun square Mars. You push through and take action in order to cover up your wounds. You can be very successful, but it never feels very good to you inside.

Sun square Mars also means that you find your creativity through inner tension. You push against this square to brainstorm and to complete tasks. Although this can be effective, it feels uncomfortable, too.

You’re always prepared to be hurt or betrayed. Sun square Mars means you may believe you can only count on yourself. 

Over time, you must learn how to pick and choose your battles, and to discern when something is worth fighting for. Your random acts of aggression will get you in trouble, so channel your angst towards bettering your life.

You need to find a safe way to express your energy with Sun square Mars. Many people are successful in physical fields, such as sports or the military, while others enjoy drama or the corporate business-world. Regardless of what you do, it’s important that you express this energy before it builds up and explodes on you or your loved ones.

Find a safe way to compete. When your energy is expelled, you can then turn inward and start to heal your trauma with your father. Over time, you will learn from Sun square Mars that you don’t need to prove anything because you’re already important, just as you are now.

Saturn-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

Saturn-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

Saturn-Midheaven aspects will show how serious, restricted, reserved, pragmatic, or focused you appear. The Midheaven often refers to public image, so Saturn tends to restrict the public image when it aspects the Midheaven.

However, Saturn is also the planet associated with Capricorn, a sign that indicates business and career success. Capricorn can be quite image-driven, so Saturn-Midheaven aspects don’t always mean that your appearance will be stunted or muted.

These aspects can be both beneficial and difficult, depending on the angle, but they tend to show up in charts when the native is quite serious about their career or image.

Saturn Conjunct Midheaven

When Saturn conjuncts the Midheaven, your public appearance is inherently karmic. You will need to work through your image and come to terms with it. This doesn’t mean that you can’t be successful, it just indicates that you will never appear the way you want to.

You may experience insecurity from a young age. Even when you do well and are successful by society’s standards, you can never get rid of that inner turmoil.

Saturn conjunct Midheaven doesn’t actually indicate how successful you will be. There are many natives with this aspect who are extremely wealthy or famous, and there’s just as many people who experience a lot of disappointment in their career. 

What Saturn conjunct Midheaven does indicate is that you will always feel criticized, even when you achieve the ultimate level of success.

Many of these difficult feelings, including your insecurity, stems from childhood and past lives. As a child, you probably felt that one of your parents (either the dominant parent or the father figure) never saw your true potential and failed to realize or to articulate your importance in the world. 

You may have experienced the absence of your father figure as well. The way that this absence manifested will depend on the sign that Saturn conjunct Midheaven is in. For example, Midheaven in Capricorn can indicate a father who didn’t provide for you monetarily, while Midheaven in water signs will point to emotional absence.

This lack of a father figure created a drive to seek recognition. You look to other people to tell you when you’ve done a good job. However, you run into a blank wall and tend to feel those same negative feelings again, because you don’t get the validation you want.

Now, Saturn conjunct Midheaven brings up these feelings again in your career. Others may brush you off, even if your achievements are worth recognition. You may been seen as too private, reserved, odd, boring, or cold. Often, the way that others see you will be influenced by the sing that Saturn conjunct Midheaven sits in.

You may feel criticized no matter what you do. This judgment can come from your parents, from larger groups, or from the public eye in general. Unlike other people, any critique wounds you in a strong and deep way due to your early interactions with this type of judgment as a child.

However, you probably have a natural urge to do something big or important with Saturn conjunct Midheaven. At first, this is usually because you want to prove yourself, but over time you will realize that it’s simply because you want to contribute or to be successful for yourself, not for others.

You probably have a strong sense of inner competition and a drive to master your field. You tend to be very hard on yourself with Saturn conjunct Midheaven, and this can be helpful when you want to reach a goal, but it can go too far and turn into self-defeatism.

If you can learn how to follow your intuition in your career instead of your ego, you can be very successful. Saturn in this position forces you to go within and to reevaluate what is truly important to you, then to follow that path.

Keep in mind that Saturn also rewards hard work. You can certainly be successful monetarily or career-wise with Saturn conjunct Midheaven, but this won’t happen until you transform your beliefs about image and success.

Sometimes, the Saturn conjunct Midheaven aspect can indicate delays in career. Just keep trying and know that all things will come with time. Saturn is the strong and steady teacher, but this karma rarely lasts for an entire lifetime.

Saturn conjunct Midheaven can also indicate that you tend to feel responsible for others when it comes to career. You may have a strong sense of guilt when you can’t get things done or take care of other people. Remember that you need to take care of yourself before you can help others. These feelings should lessen after your first Saturn return, too.

Learn to forgive yourself when you fail. In fact, you will learn over time that failure is the only way to gain new knowledge. 

This placement can indicate that you have a karmic duty in the career world. Look to the sign that Saturn conjunct Midheaven is in for help determining career choices. However, when you get into the career that links to your karma, you’ll know it’s right because you will simply feel it.

You must also figure out how to trust your own judgment over that of others. People may see you as too ambitious, harsh, entrepreneurial, or odd. It’s important to remember that this is exactly what you’re here to do, whether or not other people realize this.

Saturn conjunct Midheaven means that you have a lot of wonderful qualities. You probably never stop trying when you want to succeed in something. You’re hard on yourself, but you will continue pushing, working, and mastering your skills until you move through the barrier in front of you.

You also tend to see the bigger picture. You will sacrifice something now to achieve success in the long-term, and you know how to accomplish even the biggest of your goals. You’ll always go the inner mile to finish what you started.

If you find yourself surrounded by people who judge you or tell you that you can’t do something, remember that this is just your Saturn conjunct Midheaven aspect in action. Look at the motivation that comes from within you.

Though you may need to overcome adversity and learn how to build a sustainable foundation in your business or career, if you’re willing to put in the time and effort, you can be extremely successful over time.

The goal with Saturn conjunct Midheaven is to follow your path. Build something real and lasting, no matter what other people say. Focus on your own destiny and follow the careers that feel right, instead of listening to what other people tell you.

Ultimately, you feel disrespected by the world, but this will force you to respect yourself first. Saturn conjunct Midheaven is the biggest teacher in career. While these lessons can be painful and difficult, you can come out on the other side as a confident and accomplished individual.

Saturn Trine Midheaven

With Saturn trine Midheaven, you have the skills to work with other people when necessary, but you might prefer to pursue your goals on your own. 

You are probably very specific and careful in your work, and you don’t like being around others who are less exacting. Your high standards make it hard for you to work in a group without giving up on the things you want and need.

Saturn trine Midheaven means that you are naturally ambitious. You probably feel the most normal or comfortable when you’re working hard towards something you want. You want not only a successful career, but you specifically desire the image of success and of seriousness.

Regardless of what you actually do for work, others will see you as serious, knowledgable, and disciplined in the workplace with Saturn trine Midheaven. You have a lot of self-assurance but you can also back up your words.

In fact, you can even be a bit intimidating to people who don’t feel as smart or as accomplished as you appear. Your image just screams proficiency.

Don’t take this naturally serious image for granted. With Saturn trine Midheaven, you can appear impressive, even if you haven’t actually done the work and don’t have the skills.

For example, I have a good friend who is consistently out of work. Her parents funded her education, so she’s very knowledgable, but she fails to actually put her skills into practice and has spent 10+ years figuring out what she wants to do.

If you have Saturn trine Midheaven, you must actually contribute to the world in order to reap the benefits of your karma.

Saturn Sextile Midheaven

Saturn sextile Midheaven gives you the opportunity to develop a public image of seriousness and competence. Although you probably have a large presence in the business/career world of your choosing, you can expound upon this image during your life, if you choose.

You tend to work patiently at tasks until you complete them and real your goals. You also take on responsibility if necessary.

However, Saturn sextile Midheaven means that as you continue to work hard, others will start to recognize these qualities in you. This probably won’t happen right away and takes a bit of effort on your part.

Unlike the trine, Saturn sextile Midheaven doesn’t make you seem automatically knowledgable and competent. You must actually do the work to be successful.

If you only try to appear successful, people will see right through your facade. Real knowledge and skill will be easy to see with Saturn sextile Midheaven. This may take many years but will be worth it in the long run.

Saturn Opposition Midheaven

Saturn opposition Midheaven makes you feel isolated and lonely, especially in the world of career. You may sense that your public image is blocked or that people just don’t see you as someone important.

There is often a fear of failure with this placement. You may avoid risks because you’re afraid to fail or to look bad.

Usually, Saturn opposition Midheaven develops because one of your parents was strict or distant. Either you were restricted by your family/culture, or you were simply ignored and had to take on responsibility for yourself at a young age.

You may have sensed that you only received praise, admiration, or affection when you met certain criteria or followed the rules. In some way, affection was conditional in your childhood home.

Saturn opposition Midheaven means that these childhood issues hold you back from really pursuing a successful career. Though you will try to escape this karma and negative conditioning by turning to your career, you will still feel judged for your roots.

You can never really get away from this Saturn opposition Midheaven placement. Even though the trauma is from childhood, it gets brought up in your career and through your public image, too.

You may try to cultivate a new image for yourself as someone who is the opposite of your childhood self. This is a way to escape those negative feelings that you had about yourself.

Unfortunately, this tactic will not bring you success with Saturn opposition Midheaven. You’re only running from your negative self-image instead of dealing with the events that cased your lack of self-esteem.

You will continue to have a hard time meeting the expectations of other people and your own expectations until you deal with your inner pain. Saturn opposition Midheaven will literally force you to look at your childhood issues.

Only then will you be able to cultivate the public image that you desire. This is because you will tackle career issues from a place of competence instead of using your career to compensate for your childhood self.

Saturn opposition Midheaven forces you to stop running from your childhood. Ultimately, you can be very successful because you’ll truly know what you want to do in life, but you need to first go backwards in order to go forwards.

Saturn Square Midheaven

With Saturn square Midheaven, you felt a lack of security as a child. The way that this manifested will depend on the signs that Saturn square Midheaven is in. 

For example, your family may have struggled financially or moved often, or may your parents fought or divorced. One of your parents may have been absent, abusive, or resentful of you.

There are many ways that Saturn square Midheaven can play out. The key here is that your childhood experiences created a deep feeling of insecurity. Things in your life were never constant and you didn’t know what you could count on.

When you first entered the work force and left your home as an adult, you realized that you could create your own security. This was probably a positive experience for you with the Saturn square Midheaven aspect.

You may run from your home life by focusing on the professional world, on your career and your public image. This is what gives you the sense of security you were seeking.

Sometimes, people with Saturn square Midheaven move far away or work in a vastly different career in order to achieve this sense of stability.

However, you may find that you tend to put your energy in the wrong areas of your career. Your image feels disjointed because you don’t have a clear direction. You may try many different avenues but never see them through, or you find that having a public image of success feels blocked completely.

Even if your’e able to achieve success and status with Saturn square Midheaven, you aren’t likely to feel content. You may even feel disillusioned with the fame or success that you have been chasing.

This is because with Saturn square Midheaven, you have to pay a high price to achieve the type of status that you believe is successful. This is a karmic aspect.

You need to go back to the beginning and deal with your insecurities from childhood. You’ll never find peace if you’re running away from negative feelings. In fact, the Saturn square Midheaven aspect will force you to deal with your childhood trauma at every turn.

Until you really tackle these feelings, you will either be blocked from success or will have fame and fortune but will end up hating all of the things you thought you wanted.

Instead, work with Saturn square Midheaven. Go back and deal with your negative feelings. Figure out what security really means to you and what you truly believe. After, you will find that success flows much more easily, in a way that feels peaceful and right intuitively.

Sometimes, the Sun person can feel like they’re misled by Jupiter because the Jupiter person can be overenthusiastic, while the Jupiter person can feel that the Sun person is overbearing. However, you can work through these issues with only a bit of effort.

The Sun sextile Jupiter synastry aspect in your relationship is certainly for your highest good, regardless of the rest of the synastry chart.

Sun Opposition Jupiter Synastry

The Sun opposition Jupiter synastry aspect means that you tend to overdo things when you’re with your partner. This comes from a good place: you truly want to make each other happy.

The Jupiter person can be like a drug for the Sun person. They’re gregarious, larger than life, and up-lifting. However, both people may overspend or overdo things – drugs, food, sex, etc. – and you both may avoid the harsher aspects of life in favoring of having fun together.

This doesn’t mean that you’re excessive as individuals. However, the energy of the relationship is so exciting that it’s easy to overdo things when you’re feeling the energy of the partnership.

You may enjoy the reckless and risky vibes that come from the Sun opposition Jupiter synastry aspect. However, you also feel oddly stunted at the same time, because you’re not getting the qualities that you really want or need in a relationship.

You may feel a thrill from this relationship. It can even be a bit addictive, because the Sun shines their light on Jupiter while Jupiter fuels the ego and will of the Sun.

However, your philosophies don’t always line up. You may run into communication issues or differences of opinion when you get deeper into the relationship, beyond the thrill of doing new things.

With Sun opposition Jupiter in synastry, you need to learn how to compromise and understand each other’s points of views.

Moderation in your relationship is key so that you have the opportunity to go deeper and learn more about why the other person believes and feels what they do.

Sun Square Jupiter Synastry

The Sun square Jupiter synastry aspect can cause differences in philosophy and beliefs in a relationship.

The Jupiter person may see the Sun person as self-centered or stuck in their ways, while the Sun feels that Jupiter can be unrealistic or fantastical in their beliefs.

The Sun person sees more of reality, even if it’s overly harsh or too logical, while the Jupiter person tends to gloss over what’s real in favor of what they want to be true.

Alternatively, you might spend an excessive amount of time together and then burn out, only to fall back into the same cycle after a break.

Between each other, you may have unrealistic expectations or broken promises due to exaggeration. You both make things seem “large” but then reality crashes down and you can’t deliver on the promises you made to your partner.

Usually, you’re both very generous and attentive to each other, but you need to learn self-control as a couple and how to live in reality.

Sometimes, the Sun square Jupiter synastry aspect can make your relationship feel like a philosophical mismatch. However, this is an opportunity to push again each other and expand your beliefs.

You want to make each other happy in the relationship, but you may expect too much from the other person. Keep in mind that no one can truly make you happy except yourself. You don’t need to be the same to be compatible.

The Jupiter person must learn to come down to earth and live in reality with the Sun person, while the Sun must open their mind and try to see things from a different point of view.

Ultimately, this Sun square Jupiter synastry relationship can work as long as you’re willing to broaden your viewpoints and guard against excess in the relationship.

The way that you’re intuitively gifted will be determined by the signs that your Sun trine Neptune aspect is in as well as the houses that both planets sit in.

Ultimately with Sun sextile Neptune, you have the opportunity to learn how to be compassionate and sensitive for yourself and others. This won’t be natural to you at first, but you must learn to embrace the energy of the world instead of retreating.

Sun Opposition Neptune

With Sun opposition Neptune, your ego and your sense of energetic awareness are always at odds. Many of these issues stem from childhood interactions with your father.

This doesn’t necessarily mean that your father was actually abusive or absent. The father may have been super present, however you saw your father as vague, missing, uninterested, or weak-willed. 

You may have been confused around your relationship with your father. You didn’t know quite where you fit in.

Sometimes, Sun opposition Neptune can indicate that your father suffered emotional crises or had substance issues. As a child, you couldn’t understand if you had any part in these problems.

Sun opposition Neptune may manifest as a push towards only the Sun or ego. You could become egotistical, but this is because you want to ignore your Neptune. It’s painful to dig in and look at the hurt that lies opposite your Sun.

Neptune represents your childhood, and it may feel murky or shaky, as though nothing is real. You want reality, so you focus on the ego, but this can make you too brash, over-confident, aggressive, or self-centered. Keep in mind that these are simply defense mechanisms.

Alternatively, you may swing back and forth between the pull of the Sun and of Neptune. You sometimes feel too sensitive, and other times you feel that you must try to grow up and enforce your will.

With Sun opposition Neptune, you actually need to integrate the two planets so that you can stop struggling against yourself.

The goal is to submit and accept the nature of your reality instead of running from your fears. Work through your childhood trauma and then integrate the lessons you’ve learned into your outer personality.

Once you’re able to bring Sun opposition Neptune together, you will find that your spiritual and energetic power increases alongside your will in reality.

Sun Square Neptune

The Sun square Neptune aspect means that you feel like you have no control over yourself or your world. Sometimes, this aspect can make you feel like a victim.

Although your father may have been active in your childhood, you felt that he was removed and uninterested in your life. He may have suffered substance issues, mental health problems, or maybe he was just busy.

In some way, you were confused about your relationship with your father. This disorientation continues to cause problems in your adult life.

You may feel inferior to others with Sun square Neptune. You come off as kind of vague or even a bit shy, and you tend to feel less-than in most situations.

This is often because you feel, in your unconscious mind, as though something in yourself has been lost or is missing. You search for something illusive but you never find it.

No matter how you try, you feel that you can’t accomplish what you want. You can’t repair your sense of self.

However, you also live in a kind of illusion. You can’t cut through to see reality and to actually exert your will on a situation.

Although you’re quite idealistic with Sun square Neptune, you can take this too far. You may live in your own fantasies, leaving you vulnerable to people who see you as easy pickings.

Much of this stems from your issues with your father. His distance, whether it was emotional or physical, left you with a hole instead of a strong sense of self.

However, you might even idealize your father now. You gloss over the difficult times and prefer to see him as someone wonderful, whether this is true or not.

With Sun square Neptune, you need to be very careful of using escapist behavior. When reality is too hard to deal with, you tend to run away, but nothing ever lives up to your fantasies completely.

It’s important that you find a way to exert your will. You live in a fantasy world because you feel that you have no power in reality, but this isn’t true.

You need to stop with the delusion with Sun square Neptune. This can feel painful, but it’s actually more difficult in the long run if you hold onto your fantasies.

Learn to find beauty and spirituality in your reality, even if you don’t see it at first. Eventually, you will find that the truthful reality is much better than your idealistic versions of the world.

With Sun square Neptune, you can learn to see beauty and chaos. You will figure out how to harness the energy of the Universe to make things happen for you and take back your power instead of struggling with it, but this simply takes work and time.

With Moon sextile Mercury, you can learn how become more intuitive. This comes through conversation with other people as you figure out how to sense energy and read body language.

To develop these skills, focus on reading your intuition. You will feel when something is “off,” and this is an opportunity to rationally look at what you’re feeling and why.

Psychic work can also be helpful to develop these qualities, as can research into the human brain and the logical mind through psychology, neurology, philosophy, or spirituality.

Moon Opposition Mercury

With Moon opposition Mercury, you have a constant conflict between your heart and your head.

In most situations, your emotions and contradict the logic and reason that you know to be true. Your mind wants something different from what your feelings say.

You will probably waver between the two because you’re never sure which to pick. You could be extremely emotional, only to snap back into your colder sense of logic a second later.

With Moon opposition Mercury, you never know how to blend your feelings with your rational mind. It can feel like they’re islands apart. In fact, you may not even want to blend them, and might see emotions as bad or something to be dealt with separately.

You tend to be either over-emotional or over-rational, depending on the situation. You may swing back and forth; which you choose will depend on what’s going on and how strongly you feel.

However, you probably don’t realize that this Moon opposition Mercury aspect causes you to make poor decisions. Most people know when they’ve made the right choice because their intuition agrees with logic. This rarely happens for you!

You may have trouble communicating, or your words come across wrong. You feel like you never know quite what to say. In conversations and in your own mind, you have two competing voices that want to speak.

Some people with Moon opposition Mercury have a lot of anxiety, especially concerning social or emotional situations.

You may also have trouble making decisions because you truly don’t know which path to follow. Your emotions and logic both feel a bit biased.

Sometimes, these Moon opposition Mercury issues arise because of your relationship with your mother or with nurture itself. Your rational mind develops, separately from your emotions, in order to escape your own pain.

However, this will depend on the sign that the aspect is in.

With Moon opposition Mercury, you are seeking unity between the head and the heart. Ultimately, you need to find balance between your emotions and your rational mind.

It can actually be beneficial to separate the emotional side and the logical mind, but it’s important that you learn how to integrate them, too.

This will come by digging into your emotions to figure out why you feel what you feel. Remember that there is always a logical reason for your feelings, even if they seem like they have no basis in reality.

Moon Square Mercury

If you have the Moon square Mercury aspect in your natal chart, you may feel constant tension between your rational mind and your feelings. You are constantly questioning or debating between these two parts of yourself.

You may often experience stress or frustration due to these conflicting energies. With the square, you’ll be put into situations where you’re forced to confront the discrepancies between your head and your heart.

This Moon square Mercury aspect usually means that you have a lot of emotional issues from your childhood or past, especially relating to your mother or maternal figure.

These emotional traumas can be seemingly small, yet they still impact you through the energy of this aspect. You get anxiety when you try to think about your emotions rationally, so you tend to separate your head and your heart, yet this doesn’t work either.

You may have a lot of anxiety surrounding your emotions. It’s hard for you to process what you feel and to make accurate decisions. 

With Moon square Mercury, you may even know that there is tension between your feelings and your rational mind, but you simply don’t know how to solve this problem within yourself.

Your communication is also affected with Moon square Mercury. You might have trouble communicating with others in a way that is rational and still emotionally sensitive. You probably say things that feel right to you, but they come out as emotionally insensitive.

Alternatively, you may have trouble expressing how you feel to others or even to yourself. This can make relationships, especially those that are personal or romantic, quite difficult.

The Moon square Mercury aspect causes you to swing between emotional reactions and rational thoughts quite often, especially in the signs and houses of these planets. Others may see your mood swings the more they get to know you, and may realize that you often react emotionally even when you think you’re being logical.

In fact, almost all of your reactions have an emotional tint. However, you probably believe that you’re solely using logic. With the Moon square Mercury placement, this is virtually impossible, at least at first.

If you are able to transform this aspect, others may not see much of a change. The work needs to be done in your own mind because that is where the conflict lies.

In order to deal with this Moon square Mercury aspect, you may fall back on ultra-fixed beliefs or values to create some sense of security. Many people with this aspect invest solely in science, in religion, or in some other value system that they can rely on.

Be careful that you’re willing to consider the viewpoints of other people. Don’t react aggressively just because they challenge something that you believe. Remember that not everyone has this difficult aspect, and some people enjoy looking at things from different points of view!

As you work through this Moon square Mercury placement, you will also be able to see various viewpoints. However, you need to engage your conscious mind and work to overcome this conflict.

Conscious awareness is the key to working through this aspect. You need to accept the emotional side of you and recognize when you’re acting from a place of emotional trauma versus logic.

When you acknowledge your emotions, you will find that a lot of your anxiety will ease. This can be very painful at first but becomes more natural with practice.

Deal with your emotions instead of acting on them. When you can think about your emotions logically and acknowledge the full capacity of feelings within your mind, you know that you are well on your way to mastering this aspect.

This may feel like the most intense relationship that both partners have experienced. It’s physically and emotionally profound.

Over time, the Pluto person might feel that the Mars person is too sexually aggressive or too physical. They probably want more emotional depth on some level.

The Pluto opposition Mars synastry aspect definitely creates an opposites attract type of scenario! There is a lot of sexual attraction between this couple, but that can be tinged by their struggles for control.

Each person simply cannot understand each other, though they probably want to, on some level. This can also be felt sexually, as they have largely different sexual styles, but truly want to come together.

Usually, a masculine versus feminine energy will emerge, regardless of the actual genders involved in the relationship. Each person may take on a role, especially during fights or sexual encounters.

When the couple is in an argument, the Pluto person will probe the Mars person into action. When the Mars person does react, they can feel upset about their own actions because it feels unlike them. This is because the other person’s Pluto is directly triggering their Mars.

Over time, the Mars person may feel a loss of power, so they may turn passive-aggressive towards the Pluto person in order to take back control. This is when things can turn aggressive with the Pluto opposition Mars synastry aspect.

At best, the couple will release this competitive energy through sex. Outside of the bedroom, they must learn to understand each other without anger or explosive fights.

Mars acts with more instinct while Pluto tends to plan things out. Mars may have more physical issues related to their own actions, while Pluto has more emotional issues.

Typically with the Pluto square Mars synastry aspect, Mars will be more sexual. They have a constant need to be touching the Pluto person, no matter what is actually happening in the relationship.

The Mars person may also be more dominant, while the Pluto person is more emotionally vulnerable. The Pluto person can easily see more of the emotional nature of the relationship and understands how the energy works between the partners, but the Mars person has more power to actually act and hurt the Pluto individual.

Ultimately with this Pluto square Mars synastry aspect, both people crave being around each other. There is a strong intimacy in the relationship, but also a sense of obsession with each other. They want to be around each other physically.

Sex is the easiest way for the couple to express their constant tension. This Pluto square Mars relationship may be based on hate sex.

Over time, Mars may come to feel a loss of power because Pluto is emotionally intense. They may become passive-aggressive or make fun of Pluto in ways that really hurt.

Ultimately, this couple needs to learn how to be less competitive and more caring towards each other, or the relationship can quickly turn into hate and rage.

Venus-Pluto Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Pluto Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Pluto aspects are extremely iconic in the synastry chart. They are deeply transformative and can help to create a truly evolved relationship.

However, these aspects can also be painful. Pluto is all about transformation, but he will rip down old structures in a painful, life changing way. With Venus-Pluto aspects, love will quite literally hurt. All of your deepest feelings and love for others and self-love will be revealed through these relationships.

At their worst, these aspects can create love addictions and issues with power, control, and manipulation. At the best, you will emerge from your struggles in a spiritual, intense, intimate, evolved relationship.

In astrology, Pluto represents Hades, the god of the Underworld. While Venus is known to be the counterpart of Aphrodite, she more appropriately represents Persephone here, who Hades captures and steals away to the Underworld.

Hades wants a piece of Persephone’s beauty for himself, but he effectively traps her into staying because he is afraid she won’t choose to be with him.

These aspects are all about control versus freely given love. I recommend that you keep this myth in mind as you read the aspects below!

Pluto Conjunct Venus Synastry

With the Pluto conjunct Venus synastry aspect, you may experience a lot of intensity in your relationship, especially at first. There’s a strong attraction and a magnetic pull that is physical, charming, and aesthetically alluring.

This partnership will definitely change how you see all other relationships. Both of you will find each other immensely fascinating but also disturbing in ways. 

The Pluto conjunct Venus synastry aspect can start out great but create issues later with possession and even addiction to the other person. In particular, the Pluto person can start to feel controlling towards the Venus person. However, this can sometimes go to the other way, too.

Sometimes, the Pluto conjunct Venus synastry aspect can even indicate unrequited feelings. In the case that both people’s feelings are returned, you will find that there is a still an imbalance in the relationship, in some way.

There is a karmic tie with this aspect, but it can also become addictive if you can’t let go of each other. This can certainly be a love-hate relationship!

This relationship changes quickly. This can be for better or worse. In fact, if you’re able to work through the issues with Pluto conjunct Venus, then you can have a really evolved relationship. Pluto tears down and transforms, meaning your love life may change drastically for the better through this relationship.

However, the partnership can also evolve to be more focused on control, obsession, jealousy, or possession.

If you have the Pluto conjunct Venus synastry aspect with your partner, be careful of letting the relationship turn toxic and of unresolvable conflicts that leave a trauma mark on both of you.

It’s also important that the Venus person doesn’t try to hard to save the Pluto person. In fact, you both need to work on disconnecting in some ways so that you can discover who you are, then come together as a couple.

Pluto Trine Venus Synastry

With the Pluto trine Venus synastry aspect, you experience a strong sexual attraction when you first meet. The energy is powerful and charged. 

This is a great example of an “instant attraction” aspect. It’s unlikely that you will remain friends for long!

However, the Pluto trine Venus synastry aspect indicates a supportive emotional relationship, too. You both learn and grow from your partnership. After you climb each hurdle, you feel a sense of relief that you were able to learn something new with your partner.

Like with any Pluto aspect, you may still be consumed by each other. The relationship can feel very overpowering or compelling, as though you just can’t separate. This can be both sexually or emotionally. 

However, the Pluto trine Venus synastry aspect tends to be easier. Even though you may go through many changes and hills and valleys in your relationship, it doesn’t feel as hard as other aspects might. These qualities come naturally to you, so it’s important that you take advantage of this transformational relationship to learn all you can about yourself and your reactions to love.

Pluto Sextile Venus Synastry

With the Pluto sextile Venus synastry aspect, you have an opportunity to grow and change through your relationship. It will take work to transform yourself and your relationship, so you can choose whether or not you take advantage of this aspect.

With a relationship that has the Pluto sextile Venus synastry aspect, you can push yourself to become enlightened about the concept of love. In this partnership, you will learn about control, jealousy, and possession, and you will come to realize that those things aren’t the highest form of love.

You are immediately attracted to your partner and feel a compelling, alluring energy when you first meet them. Sometimes, it can be hard to even know your own mind because you feel like you’re under the influence of this energy.

However, you need to be careful with the Pluto sextile Venus synastry aspect that you push to grow with your partner instead of falling back onto Pluto’s more negative attributes. If you’re the Venus person, then be aware of any control the Pluto person may enforce on you.

Ultimately, no matter which planet is in your chart, this is an opportunity to grow and learn how to set healthy boundaries in a loving relationship.

Pluto Opposition Venus Synastry

The Pluto opposition Venus synastry aspect is the true meeting of heaven and hell. This aspect can feel almost natural, because both planets are so opposite. It simply makes sense that they sit across from each other.

Usually, the Venus person feels intensely compelled by the Pluto person. They may have the urge to merge with their partner in any way possible. 

With the Pluto opposition Venus synastry aspect, you may experience a lot of controlling tendencies or jealousy and obsession in the relationship. It may feel like you just can’t break free of this cycle, no matter what you do.

You may also find that both people play games with each other. Just when one of you has backed down, the other hits the throttle.

There is a very fine line between love and hate with the Pluto opposition Venus synastry aspect. Both people tend to play both roles at some point and will feel as though the other is trying to control or possess them, yet they do the same.

Ultimately, these issues in the Pluto opposition Venus relationship arise because each person has an intense fear of losing the other. They react to this insecurity by playing games or using manipulation tactics, yet this never truly works.

The Pluto person tends to have the upper hand because they’re more blunt or forceful, so the Venus person might be more passive-aggressive or manipulative to try and gain control, too.

The goal with this Pluto opposition Venus synastry aspect is to become more confident as individuals so that you don’t need to control the other person. Remember that trust can only be taken so far. You must also learn to let your partner just be without your influence.

Pluto Square Venus Synastry

With the Pluto square Venus synastry aspect, you’ll find that the relationship can quickly become toxic or obsessive if there’s nothing else to balance this aspect out.

Typically, the Pluto person is more obsessed with the Venus person. They just can’t stop thinking about them. However, this can go both ways, especially at first.

The Pluto square Venus synastry aspect shows how fine the line is between love and hate. You may feel unsure if the relationship is controlling or loving, but remember that it can’t be both at the same time. You struggle for love, yet you often find control instead.

There is usually a one-sided element to this relationship. One person may have the vague feeling of unrequited love; in some way, the energy is unbalanced.

You may experience power struggles and manipulation in this relationship. Sometimes, these struggles even explode into massive fights filled with anger and hatred.

Usually, the Pluto person is more afraid of losing the Venus person. Pluto will do whatever they can to keep Venus with them, whether this is through manipulation and control, or by giving up their core values to make the Venus person happen.

Remember that Pluto is much like the garbage man. The Pluto square Venus synastry aspect reveals the elements of love that no longer serve you and forces you to change them. The square doesn’t allow you to ignore these issues; you will find them in your face over and over should you try.

With a good deal of personal work, it is possible to transmute this aspect and discover what you truly want in love. At the end of it all, you can develop a relationship that is truly evolved, if both partners are willing to do this work.

Keep in mind that this is only one aspect in your chart. If you have positive aspects in your synastry chart to balance this square, then it may be less difficult.

Mercury-Pluto Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Mercury-Pluto Aspects In The Synastry Chart

In the synastry chart, Mercury-Pluto aspects show how much the couples’ way of thinking will change in the relationship. The Pluto partner in particular tends to transform the Mercury partner’s way of thinking.

The Mercury person is energetic and intellectual, while the Pluto person is more introspective and attentive. These aspects indicate a profound psychological connection between the partners, but this relationship can also turn controlling, as words can be used as a weapon.

Pluto Conjunct Mercury Synastry

With the Pluto conjunct Mercury synastry aspect, both people can be transformed intellectually. The relationship pushes them to go deeper and think deeper.

However, there can also be an obsession with the mind. Both people might be overly interested in what the other is thinking and with probing every part of their partner’s mind.

In the Pluto conjunct Mercury synastry relationship, you enjoy uncovering the motivations of the other person. You tend to analyze each other in order to learn, so your conversations are extremely deep.

This can be a mark of a really intellectually fulfilling relationship! As with any Pluto aspect, these conversations can be super intense. You may both feel that you’ve never talked this deep with anyone else.

However, the Pluto person might dominate these conversations. They could go to great lengths to convince the Mercury person that they’re right, but they may also transform the Mercury person’s way of thinking for the better.

Sometimes with the Pluto conjunct Mercury synastry aspect, the couple may be almost telepathic. They intuitively know what each other are thinking and what the other needs.

This relationship can definitely work if both people push to have those intellectual, deep conversations without controlling the other.

Pluto Trine Mercury Synastry

With the Pluto trine Mercury synastry aspect, the Pluto person naturally pushes the Mercury individual to transform their way of thinking.

This can be totally unconscious. The Pluto person may not realize that they’re changing how the Mercury person thinks, but the very relationship itself causes transformation. It’s simply natural!

The Pluto person will stimulate the Mercury person to figure out what the truth is in any conversation. This can be painful, but the Mercury person can also grow for the better. 

Generally, the Mercury person is more youthful and excitable, while the Pluto person is deeper or more serious. The Pluto person will find that, with the trine, the Mercury person is receptive to their thoughts and teachings.

Unlike the conjunction, this aspect makes the overbearing tendencies of the Pluto person a bit softer. It feels natural to deepen the relationship and growth comes whether or not either person realizes what’s happening.

Ultimately with the Pluto trine Mercury synastry aspect, the Mercury person will be heavily influenced by the thoughts of the Pluto person. This is usually for the better, even if it feels painful while this is happening.

Pluto Sextile Mercury Synastry

With the Pluto sextile Mercury synastry aspect, there is an opportunity for the Pluto person to transform the Mercury partner’s way of thinking.

In this relationship, the couple has the chance to engage in deep conversations that really push the edges of the mind. However, both people have to take advantage of this aspect, or it will lie dormant.

Sometimes, the transformation from this Pluto sextile Mercury synastry aspect can be painful. However, it’s ultimately for the best. The Mercury person must choose to be brave in order to truly learn from the Pluto person.

I really love the Pluto sextile Mercury synastry aspect because while it doesn’t force either person into transformation, it simply opens the door. The couple can choose to learn and grow, both intellectually and emotionally, through their deep conversations with each other.

Pluto Opposition Mercury Synastry

With the Pluto opposition Mercury synastry aspect, the couple will feel a constant battle of the minds. This can be a difficult aspect that creates a lot of verbal wars.

You each challenge each other to think more deeply, but you also try to overpower each other mentally. It can feel impossible to let the other person have their own thoughts without trying to change them.

The Pluto opposition Mercury synastry aspect does create the potential for abusive words. You need to be very careful that you communicate clearly and share your viewpoint without trying to control the other person, even if you think differently.

Both people in this relationship might hold onto issues. It’s hard for them to let go of past hurts, so they talk about past fights over and over. The Mercury person will feel especially overwhelmed by this dynamic, while this obsessive nature comes more naturally to the Pluto person.

The Pluto opposition Mercury synastry aspect means that the Pluto person will be especially forceful. They may be controlling of the Mercury person and could try to make them think as they do.

To succeed in this relationship, the couple will need to work hard on effective communication and be willing to see things from each other’s point of views.

It’s possible for this relationship to blossom if both people can learn from each other. In fact, it can be life changing mentally and emotionally should the couple choose to put in the work!

Pluto Square Mercury Synastry

With the Pluto square Mercury synastry aspect, the Pluto person may be overly forceful. They want the Mercury person to think a certain way and won’t wait for this to happen naturally.

Pluto may also demand to know all of Mercury’s secrets. The Pluto square Mercury synastry aspect is quite invasive. The Pluto person wants to know everything the Mercury person feels and thinks, yet they want them to think the right things. Sometimes, the Pluto person has a one track mind.

The Pluto individual might be a bit paranoid and look for hidden meaning in everything the Mercury individual says or does. They could also try to manipulate the mind of the Mercury person by any means possible.

Typically with the Pluto square Mercury synastry aspect, something about how the Mercury person thinks scares the Pluto person. They feel the need to control or change the mind of the Mercury person because they are afraid.

The Mercury person may strike back in their own way in order to escape the control. The method that the Mercury person uses will depend on the sign of their Mercury as well as the rest of their charge.

Ultimately, this couple needs to learn how to balance their communication and focus on themselves first. The Pluto individual especially needs to loosen the reigns and be OK with not knowing everything. They must come to realize that they can feel afraid without trying to control or change the other person if the relationship is to work.

Moon-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Midheaven Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Midheaven aspects will show to what extent your emotions impact your public image and your career. These aspects may also reveal how your career/public image makes you personally feel.

Sometimes, Moon-Midheaven aspects indicate that there are either benefits or issues stemming from the mother. This maternal relationship will be worked out through your career, or instead your choice of occupation may be influenced by your mother.

These aspects can also indicate a beautiful image in some way, though this will depend on the astrological signs and placement of the aspect.

Moon Conjunct Midheaven

The Moon conjunct Midheaven aspect is also called Moon culminating. This means that the emotional conditioning you experienced in child has a strong influence on your choice of career and on your public image. 

This can be either a good thing or a bad/difficult placement. If your mother was supportive, then she probably helped you discover what you want to do and how you want to be seen by the public.

However, your mother might have been overly controlling and pushed you into a career field of her choice. Alternatively, she may have been totally absent, so you may “bounce around” with Moon conjunct Midheaven and aren’t sure where you fit in the public/career world.

With Moon conjunct Midheaven, your early life has a strong influence on your career and adult life. The emotions that you experienced in childhood are front and center, even when you try to break away.

Many of your career choices may be emotion reactions, especially at first. You will need to figure out who you and are what emotions you have versus what feelings you were taught to express.

Moon conjunct Midheaven usually appears in charts where the native’s mother was either overly involved in their activities, studying, and career, or when the native’s mother was absent. In this case, the individual ends up looking for a mother figure and for emotional fulfillment through their career.

The events that transpired when you were young have strong effect on your life and your choices now. It’s difficult for you to separate your emotions from logical career choices.

With Moon conjunct Midheaven, it’s very likely that your choice of career will be influenced by how you perceived various careers in your childhood. For example, you may have a stronger connection to what you wanted to “be when you grew up.”

Sometimes, you may have a lot of sympathy for other people or causes, especially in the career world and for people who remind you of your young self. You tend to nurture or protect others. You also have a strong sense of intuition that can really help you excel, as long as you’re able to separate gut feelings from emotional reactions.

It’s very important that you work through your deep-seated emotional issues with the Moon conjunct Midheaven aspect. If you don’t do the emotional work, then it will be difficult for you to discern what is true in a logical, business setting.

Moon conjunct Midheaven can also mean that your career will be associated either with the family (such as a family business) or with women or feminine energy. Alternatively, you may simply have a well-developed intuition that can aid you in just about any field. 

However, you must be aware that you will unconsciously seek recognition in order to satisfy your emotional needs. You’re very sensitive to how others see you, so it can feel ultra important that you’re viewed positively.

You must learn how to deal with your emotions within yourself with Moon conjunct Midheaven or they may run wild and affect your career. If you don’t tackle your feelings head on, you may be seen as erratic or overly-emotional. You may also chase emotional fulfillment by becoming more and more daring in the workplace.

At your best, you’re able to use your emotional intelligence in your career. Moon conjunct Midheaven can be a really intuitive and logical placement if you are willing to do the emotional work and learn how to decipher what you’re feeling and why without acting on it.

Keep in mind that you will work through many of your emotions in your career. This won’t happen all at once. Stay open to any feelings that pop up and deal with them on an as-needed basis. With Moon conjunct Midheaven, your feelings will always be right in your face – you really can’t escape your Moon sign.

Ultimately, you will probably be perceived as someone who is sensitive and caring, even if this isn’t the image you try to show. Others know that they can count on you to help them when they need it. Trust your gut instincts and work on discerning the difference between something that actually feels true versus emotions you have due to past trauma.

Moon Trine Midheaven

With Moon trine Midheaven, you are sensitive and caring in the workplace. You may be creative and intuitive as well.

You are easily able to read the mood of any person or group because you have a natural handle on your intuition. It’s natural for you to understand human nature, so you tend to get things done at work because you know just what the other person needs or wants.

Moon trine Midheaven also means you may be close to your maternal parent or mother. Many of your intuitive responses were developed because your mother (or father, if he was the softer parent) gave you a great sense of security as a child.

Although you can be emotional, you know how to harness this and make it work for you. In fact, the emotional imprints of your childhood often come in handy.

With Moon trine Midheaven, you tend to work well with other people because they feel comfortable around you. This aspect makes you seem trustworthy and open.

You’re emotionally involved in your career. You probably won’t get too deep into a career that doesn’t feel right.

However, you must be careful that you don’t get complacent with Moon trine Midheaven. It’s wonderful that you’re so emotionally attached to your work, but you must remember that success comes from action, not just feelings.

Ultimately, you are kind and trustworthy. You know when something is off and have the leadership qualities to fix any situation, should you choose to use them.

Moon Sextile Midheaven

The Moon sextile Midheaven aspect means that you’re very sensitive and emotional in your professional life. You have an opportunity to develop your emotional intelligence for good, especially in the work place.

Sometimes, you may take things too personally. It’s very hard for you to hear criticism with Moon sextile Midheaven. You tend to feel negative emotions and might have strong emotional reactions, even when a logical reaction is more professionally appropriate.

Moon sextile Midheaven means that you can actively learn how to manage your emotions and take criticism without feeling like you are bad as a person.

You must work to become more objective in terms of your career. This won’t come naturally, but it is a path that is energetically open to you.

You do have a great natural sense of psychology and can easily understand how others tick. This makes it easy for you to read the moods of others.

However, you need to work through your defensiveness in order to really act on your intuition in a way that supports you and your career.

These self-critical feelings that bubble up whenever someone corrects you come from your relationship with your mother. With Moon sextile Midheaven, you have the opportunity to heal your emotional traumas through the lessons you learn in the career world.

Moon Opposition Midheaven

With Moon opposition Midheaven, you get stuck in your inner emotional world. You may have trouble moving forward with your ambition or actually putting your thoughts into action and truly creating your own reality.

You may rely on other people to help you achieve success, or you might avoid success altogether, preferring to stay in the comfort of your home and inner life.

However, oppositions tend to force you to correct these imbalances. With Moon opposition Midheaven, you can learn how to use your sweeter, softer, emotional side to achieve the dreams of your Midheaven.

You have a strong attachment to your home, family, emotions, or memories. You may find that Moon opposition Midheaven makes it hard to really get attached to your career if it doesn’t relate to your personal emotional world in some way. The world of career can feel too foreign or strange.

Alternatively, you might have a lot of self-criticism and doubt. You may think that you just don’t have the skills or personality that you need to go after what you want.

With Moon opposition Midheaven, you need to unlearn a lot of things that you were taught in childhood. These may be subconscious or even unconscious beliefs, but they still block you from moving forward into your adult life.

This opposition is pushing you to work on your emotional trauma so that you can eventually figure out what it is you want from your career and go after it without fear.

Moon Square Midheaven

With Moon square Midheaven, you feel a lot of emotional confusion about your career and your image. Your emotional self may get in the way of your ambition or direction.

You tend to feel stressed easily when you’re working towards a goal. You lack the confidence to totally follow through; your old fears may bubble up the second something goes wrong.

It doesn’t help that others seem to expect things of you that don’t align with your own feelings. You tend to follow the path you think is better instead of doing what feels right inside and might listen to outside resources instead of your intuition.

You need to remember with Moon square Midheaven that no one else really knows what’s good for you. You need to trust your gut feelings and your rational judgments. 

Moon square Midheaven is all about the struggle between logic and intuition. You probably feel like you can’t trust your gut feelings because they are clouded by your emotional reactions.

You must first work through your emotions then examine your gut feelings. Over time with Moon square Midheaven, you can figure out how to discern the different between feelings and intuition so that you can make decisions for yourself.

With this aspect, you may have rapid mood swings, so you feel that you can never really see what’s real. After all, your decision could just be a product of your latest mood. 

However, these mood swings often arise when there is an imbalance in your life. Maybe you’re following a career path but ignoring your own personal needs. Perhaps you’re spending too much time on the personal self or too much time on your outer, public persona. 

You need to find balance with Moon square Midheaven. This is the first step to getting your feelings under control so that you can access your intuition.

Look for a career that will work well with both your professional and your personal, inner needs. It may take you a long time to figure this out, but that is completely natural. 

Ultimately with Moon square Midheaven, you need to keep pushing and working on your intuition. Learn how to hear your deepest gut instincts instead of ignoring them in favor of rational choices.

You must also learn how to control your emotions by dealing with them privately. Otherwise, your mood swings can create issues for you at home and at work. Take positive action to create change when you feel it’s right.

The square isn’t easy, but it can help you to create a much more satisfying life, both personally and professionally. You will learn a lot about yourself and your emotions as you change your professional responses for the better.

You come off as wrong or irritate people, but the same people want to be around you for reasons they can’t explain.

Pluto conjunct Ascendant can make you want to control your image. You probably need a lot of privacy and might appear as though you’re secretive or clandestine.

However, this is usually because you have so many deep and complex thoughts that you can’t show to the world.

You may get intensely “into” a certain style or look for some time, then completely change it. You go through a lot of turbulent phases, but you’re never quite sure who you are. When you do something, you do it all the way.

Others notice this about you. Generally, you’re seen as very intense and even a bit forceful.

Sometimes, people with Pluto conjunct Ascendant are naturally intuitive, so they’re very good at figuring out lies. You may do well in an area of work where instincts are helpful.

In fact, you may have some qualities of a Scorpio rising with Pluto conjunct Ascendant.

Sometimes, Pluto conjunct Ascendant can mean that you were born during a turbulent or transformational time. There may have even been a traumatic event surrounding your birth.

Alternatively, Pluto conjunct Ascendant has power over your body in some way. You may have felt powerless as a child, or you have a physical ailment or negative physical feature that kept you controlled.

This aspect can give you the physical features of the parental figure who you had the most issues with. Usually, you have some type of physical feature that you truly dislike.

You probably spend a lot of time trying to “fix” the negative things that you hate about yourself. However, you will never be truly satisfied by eradicating a part of yourself. Instead, the path is to accept both your outer and inner selves and integrate them.

Pluto conjunct Ascendant makes you very extreme. The word moderation isn’t in your vocabulary! You may have various obsessions or OCD.

Ultimately, you try to keep absolute control over your life, but this can make you lonely or cause you to alienate people. Pluto conjunct Ascendant is all about learning moderation.

You might feel like you have to learn how to control others, but this is a fallacy. Pluto conjunct Ascendant will eventually teach you that you will be OK even without control.

Pluto Trine Ascendant

With Pluto trine Ascendant, you have a certain charisma that is apparent to others. This attractiveness generally comes from your energy.

There’s something about you that attracts others towards you, even if there’s nothing physically different about your looks. You have a nature allure.

However, you aren’t necessarily intense or mysterious with Pluto trine Ascendant. You simply have an innate charm that manifests in the way of your Ascendant sign.

You’re probably outwardly passionate about the things you care about. You don’t try to hide your intensity, but it doesn’t seem scary or overwhelming to others.

When you’re talking to other people, you’re very direct. You don’t try to hide your point of views. Again, while these qualities may be difficult on someone else, people see you as charming.

You may have something specifically alluring about your eyes. This will manifest in the physical element of your Ascendant sign.

With Pluto trine Ascendant, you tend to have good instincts about other people. You can even get a sense of what they’re thinking or how their mind works.

Sometimes, you may know things that no one tells you, whether or not you admit this to yourself. You’re very sensitive to the intentions of others and have a natural “sixth sense” around other people.

You’re comfortable with your own sexuality or sex appeal. You might project a bit of a controlling vibe sexually, or alternatively you give off the energy that you want to be controlled. However, this doesn’t dominate your personality.

Pluto trine Ascendant means that you’re always transforming your image in small ways. It’s natural for you to switch up your look every so often. Physical or outward change doesn’t scare you at all.

This aspect means that you move quickly in new relationships. You tend to be sexually attracted to other people quite quickly, but you may struggle to balance your regular life with your new partner.

With Pluto trine Ascendant, you may not realize that you have the power to change your situation at any time. This trine can sometimes make you feel as though you’re always being controlled by others or fate itself. However, you need to find your own personal sense of control from within.

Alternatively, if you tend to need control, then you must learn that everything happens for a reason, even if you don’t like it. Be careful that you don’t unconsciously manipulate people with your charm to get what you want.

Don’t draw people in for personal gain. You can easily create bad karma because this aspect is so easy. You’ll want to avoid scamming people, even unintentionally.

This Pluto trine Ascendant aspect almost always manifests as either a need to control or be controlled. Your tendencies will depend on the signs of the planets and the rest of your chart.

Ultimately, you have the opportunity to change your path as you wish and to present your most authentic self in interactions with other people. Remember that these skills aren’t natural for everyone!

You will also need to learn balance in your life. Because Pluto can be kind of intense, you’re all in or all out. Balance is key to a happier and more authentic self.

In many ways, this Pluto trine Ascendant aspect is a true blessing. You’re charming, attractive, and energetically compelling.

Pluto Opposition Ascendant

Pluto opposition Ascendant is also known as Pluto conjunct Descendant or Pluto setting.

You probably appear very controlled and closed-up with Pluto opposition Ascendant. Your Plutonic qualities are hidden.

Others might not be able to see any of your intensity. In fact, you can seem a bit stagnant.

However, you do attract alluring, Plutonic mates. You may find that your partners tend to be manipulate you, through feelings of fear and guilt, or dominate/control you.

You must learn that you are more than just eccentric. Although this is a beneficial part of your outer self, you must also remember to dig deeper. This is the only way that you can learn how to relate to others without needing to be edgy or different.

Ultimately, you want to learn to see how others are different, too, instead of thinking solely of your own eccentricities and independence.

Uranus Sextile Ascendant

With Uranus sextile Ascendant, you come across as different, eccentric, unconventional, or even outlandish.

You probably have an intellectual vibe, yet you also seem odd or even weird.

Uranus sextile Ascendant gives you the opportunity to figure out who you are and how you present yourself. You will learn who you truly are and how to show these qualities to the world.

This means that you might go through various stages and try different “looks” until you find something that feels true to who you are.

There can be a bit of an impatient vibe with Uranus sextile Ascendant. You aren’t afraid to share your ideas, but you tend to be very fixed on what you think and don’t have patience for people who see the world in a more conventional manner.

With Uranus sextile Ascendant, you need to learn how to be unconventional and find your true self while still relating to others. Take the feelings of other people into account instead of being focused on only your own independence.

Uranus Opposition Ascendant

Uranus opposition Ascendant is also called Uranus conjunct Descendent or Uranus setting.

This placement means that you attract exciting or controversial relationships. Your partners tend to be unique in some way, depending on what sign your Uranus is in.

You are attracted to independent people who don’t need a lot of coddling. With Uranus opposition Ascendant, you may also gravitate towards someone “new-age,” scientific, or progressive.

In fact, you probably get bored with anyone too “normal.” You need a lot of stimulation and excitement to stay in a relationship.

Uranus opposition Ascendant means that you may have trouble finding your own sense of individuality or different side, so you look for partners who express these qualities.

Your Uranus qualities are a part of your shadow self. In order to activate these qualities, you need to develop and heal the shadow self. Much of this work will be done through your relationships.

With Uranus opposition Ascendant, you have a lot of creativity and many unique, progressive ideas. These qualities may be hidden within you. As you develop the shadow self in relationships, you will learn more about yourself and how you’re different. You will also learn about what you can share with the world and how you can change the Universe.

This aspect means that you actually need to commit in order to discover your independence.

Uranus Square Ascendant

Uranus square Ascendant means that you grew up feeling repressed and stunted. You never felt as though you could properly express your unique qualities.

Now, you may go overboard and act extra eccentric, odd, or independent. You feel that you need to assert your independence but you don’t know how to do this in a healthy, balanced way.

Others notice your personal appearance right away. You are aggressive, odd, or even flamboyant because you make sure that you look different.

With Uranus square Ascendant, you can also be ultra-spontaneous. While spontaneity is good, this aspect means that you can easily go overboard.

You may be unpredictable or rebellious in every situation. Sometimes, you even seem irresponsible. You believe that you deserve to do whatever you want.

This all stems back to your family issues. You felt that you needed to conform as a child, but you were always at odds with the rest of your family and never truly fit in.

Uranus square Ascendant means that you try to find out how you’re different, but even when you show your eccentric side, you never feel truly authentic.

You tend to build up nervous anxiety then act out to shock your friends or family. You’re trying to express yourself, but it doesn’t feel quite right because you’re actually acting on your past trauma.

When you learn to deal with your trauma, you will figure out how to be different without going overboard.

Ultimately, Uranus square Ascendant will force you to dig into your past trauma in order to be authentically you.

Mercury Opposition Ascendant

You require a lot of mental stimulation with Mercury opposition Ascendant. However, you mainly find this through one-on-one interactions with other people.

Communication is extremely important to you in a relationship. You want a partner who you can debate and chat with. 

In fact, you tend to figure out what you’re really thinking when you can talk about it with someone else. Similar to the conjunction, you need to get your ideas out with Mercury opposition Ascendant.

There are some distinct differences from the conjunction. The main divergence is that you use your partner as a mirror for your own inner ideas.

With Mercury opposition Ascendant, you might struggle to figure out exactly what you think, so you need to hear the opinions of others. You don’t know that you believe something until it’s presented to you and it feels right.

Your shadow self is especially hidden with Mercury opposition Ascendant. You don’t always know what your deepest self wants and feels, and with Mercury on your Descendent, you struggle to activate the logical part of the brain.

Because your Mercury tends to be subconscious with Mercury opposition Ascendant, you take on the opinions of other people. You want to hear a variety of conclusions before making your own, but this can also mean that your thoughts are only a reflection of those around you.

With Mercury opposition Ascendant, it’s very important that you learn to access your shadow side and develop your own opinions.

As you grow and develop your shadow side, you will get better at hearing others’ opinions without believing them. You must learn how to consider an idea and see if it feels right to you.

This will happen naturally as you access your shadow self. Mercury opposition Ascendant is all about a “hidden” logical mind that you want to develop.

However, you can also be a bit cold in relationships, or you may attract dispassionate partners who are overly intellectual. Once you heal your shadow self, you will access your emotional side or will attract partners who can meet you on that level.

Keep in mind that with Mercury opposition Ascendant, an intellectual partnership will be very important for you. In a relationship, you need to be able to chat and discuss ideas with your significant other.

You may also want an active relationship in some sense. The sign that your Mercury is in will dictate more of how this manifests, but you certainly won’t want to be bored with your partner.

Sometimes, Mercury opposition Ascendant can indicate that you might attract partners who are two-faced or impish in some way. Mercury can be a bit tricky, so you need to be careful that you’re seeing the truth.

You will know what’s real when logic lines up with your intuition.

Mercury Square Ascendant

Mercury square Ascendant can be a difficult aspect socially. You come across as too opinionated, loud, or arrogant, regardless of your true intentions.

You tend to have trouble communicating. When you want to express something, you may find that it comes out wrong or sideways with Mercury square Ascendant.

Your viewpoints are often poorly expressed or misunderstood. Sometimes, other people could feel that you’re talking at them rather than engaging in a conversation. When you’re feeling nervous, you may preach at other people.

With Mercury square Ascendant, you have very strong opinions, so you may not take the time to listen to other people. It’s easy for you to show that your thoughts and ideas are more important than anyone else’s.

Although you feel strongly about your thoughts, this sort of conversation style makes you hard to be around. In fact, Mercury square Ascendant can make you a bit egotistical socially. You seem both aggressive and unsure of yourself all at once.

Mercury square Ascendant can mean that your body language throws people off. It doesn’t always match up with what you’re saying, so it’s difficult for others to read your social cues.

You may use flattery to try and “win” others, but people easily see through this. They can actually feel annoyed or used because your complements are only for the purpose of boosting your own ego. You tend to seem insincere.

I know that everything I have said about Mercury square Ascendant sounds super harsh. However, most of these issues arise because you don’t feel confident about who you are inside.

Everything that you do socially is a defense mechanism to try and boost your own confidence. Mercury square Ascendant indicates a strong lack of intellectual self-assurance.

Mercury square Ascendant means that you might compare yourself to other people. This creates a lot of deep insecurity that bubbles up in social situations.

Your judgments towards others are a defense mechanism, even if this is all subconscious or even unconscious.

With Mercury square Ascendant, you need to boost your own confidence inside before your social skills will change. You search for assurance from others yet the only person who can truly give you want you seek is you.

It will take you a lot of time and effort to gain self-confidence. This comes through knowing who you are and what positive qualities you have, regardless of what other people think.

When you’re able to feel true to yourself, you either won’t trigger people socially (because you won’t need to brag or shut others down) or you simply won’t care if other people don’t like you. Usually, it will be a combination of both.

Mercury square Ascendant will put you in positions over and over that feel extremely painful. After all, squares are hard. This is all to push you to develop inner confidence.

Ultimately, squares can be life changing when you’re willing to turn around and face your fears.

Saturn-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Saturn-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

In the natal chart, Saturn aspects to the Ascendant dictate how serious and responsible you appear. When your Ascendant is influenced by Saturn, you can seem conservative, bland, closed-off, uptight, or simply business-like.

After all, Saturn is all about restrictions. These aspects will typically restrict your Ascendant from totally shining through, though they can be helpful or difficult.

With Saturn-Ascendant aspects, you may struggle to show your true emotions or even your inner self. You might feel stuck behind the repressive, Saturnian mask. 

Sometimes, people with these aspects are true old souls, while others might distant or aloof. There are both benefits and difficult parts of these Saturn-Ascendant aspects!

Any of these aspects are relatively painful, especially when compared to other Ascendant aspects, yet they help you work through your Saturn in relationship to the outside world, too.

Saturn Conjunct Ascendant

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, you tend to be conservative and responsible, at least outwardly. You may come across as especially solemn or austere and repress some of the emotions that you feel inside.

Saturn conjunct Ascendant doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re shy, although you may have felt a bit repressed socially as a child. Usually, this is something you grow out of as you age.

However, this aspect does mean that you have a misplaced sense of responsibility. You probably feel responsible for your family members or friends, even if their problems aren’t your fault.

Saturn conjunct Ascendant can also mean that your parents placed a lot of responsibility on you from a young age, although this isn’t always the case. In this scenario, you learned that other people’s issues were your problems.

Now, you feel that it is your duty to “fix” things. You probably experience a huge amount of guilt if you try to ignore these issues.

You may also feel that you struggle to take risks. You’re always playing it safe or hesitating socially. This doesn’t mean that you don’t engage in risky behaviors, but simply that you don’t go after the things you really want because you’re afraid to try.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, you may feel that the Universe holds you back in life. It can start to seem like your whole existence revolves around the concept of “one step forward, two steps back.” Keep in mind that the Saturn conjunct Ascendant aspect transforms greatly after your first Saturn return.

As you grow older, simple problems can start to feel complicated and heavy. You carry around a lot of responsibility, but this can start to overwhelm you. It’s sometimes easier to just avoid your problems, but then you’re left with a vague sense of guilt.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, it’s really important that you actively deal with your problems instead of avoiding them. Work is the best antidote, however you need to make sure that you’re working on something that feels right in your gut. Don’t do a task just because you feel like you “should.”

Don’t leave things until the last minute because they can build up and cause depression. In fact, loneliness or pessimism, resulting in depression, is common with Saturn conjunct Ascendant. These are things that you need to actively work to improve so that you can eventually lead a happier, more peaceful life.

It’s important that you spend time working on your self-confidence. You may feel that you’re never enough, but this comes from a sense of inner guilt. Others can’t see that this is why you will go out of your way to help someone. You must learn how to do what’s good for you, not what other people want you to do.

You have a lot of fear and apprehension about living in the moment. You try not to react, so you may come off as slightly cold during conflicts, but this is because your Saturn restricts your emotions from shining through.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, you may also feel a bit restricted physically, as though you’re out of place in your body. This aspect can make you feel very self-conscious about your appearance. In fact, your appearance can be karmic, so you’re always struggling against it.

As a child, you may have been shy or felt out of place. You probably felt awkward or wrong in your body and tried to avoid expressing your emotions. It was almost like you just couldn’t break through, no matter how hard you tried.

Don’t lose hope! Saturn is always a late bloomer, so you will find that these issues change dramatically as you near your first Saturn return. You can learn how to master these very things that caused so much trouble for you.

Learn to take responsibility for yourself and do those daily tasks that make you feel in your gut. Avoidance is the worst thing for you, but you need to make sure that you’re actively focusing on what you want, not what others want. This will help you grow socially, too, and you will learn to accept your body and your place in life.

With Saturn conjunct Ascendant, each small personal success that you have will build your self-confidence. This aspect takes time to heal, but it can eventually make you very responsible for yourself and dedicated to living your happiest, truest life, even publicly.

You will start to notice that you feel a sense of guilt for yourself when you do too much for others. This is a sign that you are betraying yourself and is where much of your depression and anxiety stems from.

Learn to follow your gut instincts to heal Saturn conjunct Ascendant. Focus on what feels right instead of what you “should” do. There are no “shoulds” with Saturn.

Over time, you will start to relax and learn these lessons naturally. Saturn feels much less strict as you age, but you also have to push yourself to face your fears and figure out solutions. 

There is lots of potential for transformation with Saturn conjunct Ascendant! Ultimately, you can live a life of peace where you’re totally responsible for your own needs. With this aspect, you really can create the life you want long-term with a bit of effort.

Saturn Trine Ascendant

With Saturn trine Ascendant, you appear restrained around other people. You almost always control your reactions, so other people don’t see what you truly think or feel unless you want them to.

You may be quite reserved. Saturn trine Ascendant means that you appear serious and disciplined, thought it may be hard for other people to see who you truly are beneath this mask.

Others don’t see any outward impulsivity in your personality. Sometimes, you can even be a bit hard to get to know, because you’re not the best at small talk. These are skills you can learn over time; they don’t come naturally at a young age.

With Saturn trine Ascendant, you can sometimes seem closed off, mainly because your reactions are so private. Your disposition is very serious, but you can sometimes seem a little bland or empty because you never show people who you are underneath.

You need to learn how to express yourself better in order to be respected. People don’t usually dislike you, but they aren’t drawn to you either because you hide who you are. This is instinctual for you; it feels unnatural to show yourself to the outside world.

Sometimes, Saturn trine Ascendant can make it difficult for you to forge relationships. You’re simply so careful, even as a child, but this can make other people a bit nervous.

You need to relax and show your playful side. This can be really difficult for you because it feels natural to hide who you are.

However, the way that you think can also be a bit rigid. You might be a tad judgmental and see others as right or wrong, the world as black or white. Over time, you need to learn how to appreciate different viewpoints so that you don’t alienate people when you do open up.

The Saturn trine Ascendant aspect is one of the more difficult trine aspects. Even though it’s instinctive, like all trines, it also creates a lot of social issues that are hard to undo.

Ultimately, you need to learn how to be more vulnerable with people. You will come to discover what a conversational rhythm means and will know that when someone else shares something, it’s your turn to share back.

It can be really scary to open yourself up to judgment and criticism. However, you’re mainly afraid of this because you tend to judge and criticize others so much. When you work on these qualities, you will come to realize that other people aren’t as critical and will most likely accept who you are, when you’re able to show them.

You will also learn that even if someone judges you, there’s no reason to feel badly as long as you were being your truest, authentic self. These skills will become more natural the close you get to your Saturn return, if you’re actively working towards a resolution.

Saturn Sextile Ascendant

With Saturn sextile Ascendant, you’re outwardly serious and independent. Regardless of your childhood circumstances, you had to learn responsibility in some way at a very young age.

Unlike the trine, these qualities didn’t come naturally to you with the sextile. Instead, you went through life events that taught you to become responsible and even a bit austere. You become independent at a young age; others can now see this reflected in your outer personality.

Sometimes, Saturn sextile Ascendant can make you feel like an outcast. You may have a small number of friends or close partnerships, but you value loyalty, so you would prefer to have only a few people in your close circle.

The relationships that you develop may surround your shared work goals, routines, or sense of responsibility. Alternatively, your relationships are based on sorrow or guilt that you experienced in your early life.

Although you’re very self-reliant, you do want a few key people around you. You must be able to count on them and you will give the same back. You desire very serious friendships and romantic partnerships.

Others around you can see that you’re responsible, sensible, and direct. You don’t beat around the bush. That doesn’t mean that everyone is privy to your inner thoughts as you keep those very guarded, but they can see these outer elements of your personality.

You’re very strong-willed and know what you want. This is because, in childhood, you had to fight for what you needed. Saturn sextile Ascendant makes you someone truly respectable as an adult.

However, you need to be careful that you don’t become too self-reliant or rigid. Learn to bend a little, even when it doesn’t feel totally comfortable.

Saturn sextile Ascendant can easily make you too serious. Don’t lose your sense of play. Remember to let your inner child out sometimes! Not everything that you do needs a good reason; sometimes you should try an activity just for fun.

You keep things very serious and business-like with the people around you. This can be a great skill, but it’s also important that you learn to open up to those closest to you. Don’t be afraid to be vulnerable, although this can be extra-difficult with Saturn sextile Ascendant.

Ultimately, you want to harness the best qualities of Saturn sextile Ascendant (your sense of confidence, responsibility, and seriousness) while learning to loosen up and allow yourself to have fun.

Saturn Opposition Ascendant

The Saturn opposition Ascendant aspect is also called Saturn conjunct Descendant or Saturn setting. This aspect generally affects your relationships, but you will see these qualities show up most in your one-on-one friendships and romantic partnerships.

Usually, the Saturn opposition Ascendant aspect indicates that you didn’t receive enough praise or encouragement as a child. Now, you may be less-than-assertive and might doubt yourself. Any challenge can seem too intimidating or hard.

You may attract strict father figures as romantic partners, regardless of the gender roles. In fact, your relationships probably have some kind of parental role and may be unbalanced.

This is because you don’t feel that you have the capability to be responsible foe your own life, so you attract people who will take over the role of controlling you and your life. However, this doesn’t work in the long run.

Alternatively, you might be the “responsible,” strict partner in relationships. In this scenario, you attract lovers who are more immature or even physically young. You feel responsible for them and they allow you to take over these duties.

Sometimes, Saturn opposition Ascendant can mean that you’re scared of relationships in general because you don’t want to be vulnerable. You may have experienced negative events in past relationships, either with ex-partners or even with your parents.

Saturn opposition Ascendant usually indicates that relationships are a core part of your shadow-work. You will discover who you are underneath by working through your issues in partnerships and friendships.

This aspect will force you into difficult relationships with people who teach you these lessons. The key to healing Saturn opposition Ascendant is to learn how to accept others for who they are while also accepting your shadow self and setting clear boundaries.

Ultimately, you need to own all parts of yourself. With Saturn opposition Ascendant, you probably attract people who reflect your shadow self. In fact, your partners have the very negative qualities that you suppress within yourself.

When you learn to own and express these hidden qualities, you will start to attract relationships where you can be yourself authentically with partners who want the same type of relationship that you do.

Remember that it’s OK with Saturn opposition Ascendant to have difficult relationships. After all, you only grow with this placement through relationships.

Your partnerships may feel really difficult, but remember that you’re always learning lessons and getting close to fulfillment when you simply keep trying.

Saturn Square Ascendant

With Saturn square Ascendant, you experienced some less-than-stellar circumstances in childhood. You either had intensely strict rules, physical or verbal abuse, or you were emotionally scarred by rules at your school. Sometimes, this placement reflects a combination of all three circumstances.

In your childhood, you felt that you couldn’t control your environment no matter how hard you tried. When you eventually realized that your efforts were fruitless, you retreated into yourself.

Now with Saturn square Ascendant, you’re probably a bit reserved when you meet new people. This might actually annoy you, because you know that you’re not portraying your truest self.

This was learned in childhood. You couldn’t express yourself openly for fear of punishment or retaliation in some environment, whether this was with your parents, teachers, or other children. Your natural enthusiasm was tempered with rules and limitations; you had to hide the truest parts of yourself.

These lessons are very hard to unlearn! You may find that no matter how much you want to show your truest self to other people, Saturn square Ascendant keeps the inner you totally hidden.

You also felt very serious or responsible as a child. In some way, you were responsible or other people or had a lot of weight on you. This taught you that, with Saturn square Ascendant, it’s your job to take care of things.

These lessons make you even more inhibited or shy! It’s especially difficult for you to interact when you first meet someone. 

Because you have this Saturn square Ascendant aspect, others tend to react negatively to you, too. You may come off as too rigid or even pessimistic, even if you’re trying your hardest to be outgoing and optimistic. You clam up and just can’t break free of your bonds.

You will feel especially repressed in childhood. The Saturn square Ascendant aspect is the most tough before your first Saturn return.

It may take some time to develop your social skills and confidence in groups, but it’s important that you actively work to learn these skills. Don’t ever think that you’re just not outgoing; you simply don’t have the same skills that other people are born with.

Over time, you will figure out how to show more of your inner self and take social risks. This will happen when you’re willing to open up and try. It’s very scary to be vulnerable with Saturn square Ascendant, but this is the path to healing.

With this aspect, you might also have some issues surrounding control. You felt that everything was out of control as a child, so you like to stay in areas you have complete control over now.

However, you need to learn how to let down your walls and go with the flow. Be OK with everything that happens, even if it feels bad. Remember that you can’t have good things without the equal and opposite bad thing. 

Ultimately, you can work through a lot of your Saturn square Ascendant issues by getting to the roots of your childhood trauma and recognizing your responses in real time, now. Remember that squares can be a blessing in disguise because they force you to deal with these issues.

Neptune-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Neptune-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Neptune aspects to the Ascendant influence the way that you appear and present yourself. Neptune is all about dreams and illusions, so these aspects make your appearance more elusive and vague.

However, Neptune can also bring a lot of natural creativity into your life too.

It can make you unsure of who you truly are or cause others to have trouble deciphering your personality, yet it also brings and element of spirituality to your Ascendant mask.

Neptune Conjunct Ascendant

The Neptune conjunct Ascendant aspects make you seem really elusive and dreamy. It can be hard for others to pin down exactly who you are.

Sometimes, you may have an inconsistent look or vibe. Although you’re very magnetic and other people are drawn to you, they can never quite figure you out.

With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you appear soft and dreamy. You may have illusive eyes that are watery in some sense.

Neptune is much like a higher version of Venus, so Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you have a lot of sex appeal. However, your sexuality is less visceral and more elusive.

Others project their own images onto you, and you seem to take on these qualities, regardless of who you truly are inside. Your “real” self can be a bit of a mystery. People see what they want to see.

You may be very successful in acting, music, or other creative careers. Many people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant have a flair for entertaining others because people are able to project what they desire onto the individual.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you also have a distorted image of yourself. Just like others project their own opinions onto you, it’s easy for you to take on their wants.

Other people have the power to change how you feel about yourself because it’s hard for you to see your “outer” self clearly. Some people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant tend to have low confidence, if they aren’t careful to build themselves up, because they don’t know who they truly are.

You are easily overwhelmed by harsh things in the world and can’t hide you feelings from other people. You have a sensitive aura that is almost childlike.

Your sex appeal might be a bit childlike too, especially if you’re a women, although men can sometimes have a similar vibe. You seem almost otherworldly and appear young yet wise at the same time. You may appear slightly vulnerable.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant is a really curious placement because you can be so many things! Ultimately, you’re very malleable based on what the people around you want and think, so it’s hard to pin down exactly how you appear.

It’s as if you exist halfway between the real world and another world or higher dimension. The physical world can feel harsh to you, so you escape by changing yourself or dreaming up an alternate reality.

While you’re very spiritually connected with Neptune conjunct Ascendant, it’s also a tough placement because you struggle to live in reality.

You spend a lot of time trying to figure out who you are and how you can comfortably exist in the world. Although people are typically drawn to you, these Neptunian feelings can also cause self-esteem issues, so you might retreat from the world altogether when you feel overwhelmed.

It’s hard for you to connect with others in a way that feels real and authentic, because you’re never quite sure who you are. Who are you truly projecting to the outside world?

Sometimes, people with Neptune conjunct Ascendant experiment with different personas and personalities in an attempt to find who they really are. With this placement, you’re a bit of a chameleon or shapeshifter.

Other people are never quite sure if you’re showing them your true self or are reflecting what they want to see. You’re probably not sure yourself! However, this can make others feel a bit nervous around you, even though they’re also intrigued by your dreamy nature.

With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you may want to disappear or escape. You’re very sensitive, so it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the harshness of the world. You are easily upset by violence or anything hurtful.

Try to learn that you’re not a victim and avoid saving other people to the detriment of yourself. After all, you cannot help other people if you don’t first look out for yourself. Put on your own oxygen mask first.

You may try to block out reality or your unlimited access to the spiritual realm (which can also be terrifying) through drugs, alcohol, or other addictions. With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you’re more susceptible to these types of things than most because you want to get away.

Alternatively, you may try to escape into your dreamworld and withdraw from reality. It’s easy for you to do this because your imagination is strong, but this is actually a blocker to discovering who you truly are.

You can be a bit of an escapist with Neptune conjunct Ascendant. You tend to either idealize things or avoid them altogether. Ultimately, you need to learn balance.

Neptune conjunct Ascendant means that you’re very sensitive to higher vibrations. You can easily access the spiritual realm (whether or not you realize it), but this can draw negative or terrifying spirits to you.

I strongly recommend that you learn how to ward yourself spiritually. Your energy is constantly overloaded by the energy of spiritual beings and other people.

When you’re able to ward yourself and protect your energy, you will also be able to work towards developing your own sense of self. With Neptune conjunct Ascendant, you don’t have the natural shields that most of us are born with, but you can create them.

You need to develop discernment by learning how to filter out negative energies, entities, and people. It’s hard for you to judge what is good and what is bad for you, but these are skills that you can develop over time.

If you have Neptune in the 1st house but it isn’t exactly conjunct your Ascendant, you will find that many of these same qualities apply to you, although they may not be as strong.

Neptune Trine Ascendant

With Neptune trine Ascendant, you are sensitive and a bit psychic. You have a lot of empathy for other people and you’re a bit dreamy.

You tend to see the world through emotions and intuition, so it can be hard for you to put your perceptions into words. 

These qualities come naturally to you since birth. Neptune trine Ascendant puts the best qualities of Neptune into your outer personality.

However, you can also be vulnerable to negative energy with Neptune trine Ascendant. You are intuitive and empathetic, but this can be hard to handle when you are faced with a tragedy or violent act. Things that don’t directly affect you do influence your mental state and energy.

It can be helpful, with Neptune trine Ascendant, to learn how to ward yourself. Your energy is very “open,” so you often take on the energy of other people and spiritual entities.

You’re susceptible, which makes it harder to guard yourself against things that will hurt you. Learning to create energetic wards is the first step to regaining your self control.

With Neptune trine Ascendant, your imagination is very active. It’s easy for others to see your intuition and dreamy vibe in your outer personality.

You may have trouble making clear declarations or following through on your intentions. It’s hard for others to tell where you truly stand; your outer personality is watery and may not be well-defined.

Neptune trine Ascendant also makes you a bit childlike. You express true wonder when you discover new things, regardless of your physical age. As a person, you’re typically happy and are friendly to be around.

Although people can’t quite pin you down, this doesn’t trigger others with the Neptune trine Ascendant aspect like it may with the opposition or the square. Others feel pleasant feelings around you.

You do tend to show what you’re feeling, but these emotions can change very quickly. You’re not threatening to others, but you’re not super consistent, either.

Performing arts can be a good outlet for people with Neptune trine Ascendant. You may have natural creative skills, or you may be interested in the spiritual realm or mythology/fantasy.

It isn’t easy for you to express what you feel through words and facts, so a creative outlet is often helpful. This is one way that people can come to know who you are and see the true you.

Although the Neptune trine Ascendant aspect is easy, be careful that you act on your dreams. It’s easy for you to get lost in the fantasy realm, but your life won’t change unless you take action.

The energy of the trine won’t push you to take action, so this is something you have to push yourself to do.

Ultimately, no one can change your life except you. Don’t get stuck in victimhood or self pity (which is easy to do with Neptune trine Ascendant), but instead focus on making your own life happen.

Look to the rest of your chart to see what action-oriented placements you have. These are qualities that you can draw on to make your dreams a reality.

Lastly, it can be helpful with Neptune trine Ascendant if you learn how to ground yourself. You may feel too floaty much of the time which leads to inaction. Grounding is a way to stay in the real world while maintaining your connection to spirit.

Neptune Sextile Ascendant

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you have a bit of a dreamy nature. You’re extra sensitive to the environment and can easily pick up on subtle energy that other people might miss.

You can read the moods of people around you, even if you don’t consciously realize this. Your personality is mutable, so you can mix with different types of people and project what they want to see.

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you’re a natural chameleon. You sense how other people want you to appear and change yourself.

However, these skills are very subtle. Your changes won’t be obvious to other people, regardless of how well they know you.

Even your actual appearance can be a bit fluid with Neptune sextile Ascendant. Others might not know how to describe the way that you appear, and even you may be a bit confused!

Because you’re so mutable, you might have a bit of trouble explaining your own wants and needs to other people. With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you have the opportunity to learn how to harness your illusive nature while also remaining true to yourself.

This takes a lot of work, but the goal is to bring your Neptunian qualities into the real world instead of leaving them in your unconscious mind. Work on making your ideas solid and putting your dreamy thoughts into words.

In groups, you’re usually friendly and even a bit charming. You don’t threaten other people and tend to make friends easily, but you also take on the energy of other people.

You’re passive and moldable, but you sometimes forget what’s good for you versus what someone else wants. Your opinions and values are easily influenced by the energy of others.

With Neptune sextile Ascendant, you need to learn how to set boundaries with other people. Work on improving your self-confidence and self-worth. You have the tendency to wallow in pity, but this won’t help you in the long run.

Learn how to take action and change your own life instead of trying to escape to your dream world or avoid your problems.

It’s OK to make mistakes! You must simply get up and try again.

You have a truly fertile imagination with Neptune sextile Ascendant. If you learn how to unlock your dreamy side, you can do a lot in the world. These qualities already exist within you; they simply need to be practiced.

Your emotions can easily be swayed by others, so with Neptune sextile Ascendant, you need plenty of alone time to develop your own beliefs and values before you talk to other people. 

Ultimately, you have a soothing, happy presence and are sensitive to energy. These are all good qualities as long as you learn how to integrate your dreamy side into the real world and set boundaries with others.

Neptune Opposition Ascendant

Neptune opposition Ascendant is also known as Neptune conjunct Descendant or Neptune setting. 

With this Neptune opposition Ascendant aspect, you may not be totally sure what you look like. You can never decide if you like your appearance or not. In fact, your physical appearance may seem to change constantly or it may be just out of reach.

Neptune opposition Ascendant means that you may struggle with clothing, fashion, beauty, etc. These areas feel murky and dreamy, so you never know exactly what you want.

You may base your appearance off of what your partner sees or thinks of you, so the way that you feel about yourself changes based on your partner’s judgements.

In fact, Neptune opposition Ascendant means that your relationships, especially your one-on-one ties, are affected by this elusive, dreamy Neptunian nature. You may see your partners through rose-colored glasses and have an idealistic view of relationships.

When you’re in a relationship, your identity dissolves into your partner’s and vice-versa. It’s hard for you to keep the integrity of your own personality and self-image. This can also happen in close, one-on-one friendships.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you have trouble seeing people clearly. You may distort the true nature of others and miss their negative qualities.

This can actually create emotional distance between you and your partner. Neptune opposition Ascendant means that your ideals about the relationship aren’t grounded in reality, so you’re dealing with a duality.

When you’re in a relationship, one partner may ignore emotions while the other may function through feelings alone. You can play either part with the Neptune opposition Ascendant natal aspect.

One partner might seem weak, innocent, or easily influenced by deception. Neptune opposition Ascendant usually means that you attract codependent relationships, though you may play either role in various partnerships. This could be true for your friendships, too.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you may start relationships with people you feel sorry for. You try to save people and even feel that the underdog is attractive. However, this doesn’t work out in the long run.

You may go through many relationships with unfaithful partners, or you get into relationships with addicts, chronic liars, sex addicts, narcissists, etc. It can be hard for you to snap out of this, because you tend to get stuck in your delusions.

If you had to admit that you created a false image about a partner, then you would also have to realize that the partner you desire never existed in the first place. With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you may build entire relationships off of people who don’t truly exist.

However, you may also be the partner who lies, cheats, or controls. In this case, you also need to deal with your delusions.

You must learn how to live in the real world without needing to escape. In fact, if you’re this person, then you’re probably deluding yourself in more than one way.

It is possible for someone with Neptune opposition Ascendant to find balance, but it takes work.

Ultimately, you desire that illusive, spiritual merging of two people. You’re almost looking for something otherworldly in relationships, which is why you tend to attract people who appear to be everything you want.

What you might not realize is that these kinds of relationships only come through hard work. Neptune opposition Ascendant makes you want to escape, but the only way to get what you want is to go through the less pleasant situations.

You will need to learn how to establish strong boundaries in relationships. It’s helpful to create some sort of system for reality checks to make sure that your relationship is what you believe it is.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you have the tendency to feel like a victim in relationships. It’s important to remind yourself that this isn’t true. 

In fact, the truth is always right in front of you, even if you can’t see it. You always have the power to change your own situation.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you can have the spiritual relationship that you desire, but you won’t get it by victimizing your partners. In fact, you actually find this relationship by first creating a strong sense of self and then sharing this with your partner.

In higher manifestations, Neptune opposition Ascendant can represent your truest soul mate. You can find a spiritually enlightened romance, but you will first need to heal this aspect.

With Neptune opposition Ascendant, you desire unconditional love, but you don’t know how to get it. The first step is to figure out what is real. Don’t ignore your gut instincts, but confront your problems and work them out.

Neptune represents enlightenment and spiritual love, yet it can also represent delusions. You want to learn how to encompass the best qualities of Neptune while transmitting the more difficult qualities.

Neptune Square Ascendant

With Neptune square Ascendant, you have a picture of yourself that isn’t what other people see. There’s the dream version of yourself in your head, then there’s the real version of you that appears to others.

Neptune square Ascendant can cause a lot of confusion. You may struggle with your outer identity. This can cause misperceptions and a lack of trust in your close relationships.

You’re extremely sensitive to energy. You especially notice verbal and nonverbal communication from others such as signals like facial expressions, body language, or even energetic shifts.

However, you can actually be too sensitive. If you see one facial movement on someone else that seems “off,” you take it personally and feel self-conscious.

You can easily misunderstand things which makes it hard for you to connect with people at a deep level.

With Neptune square Ascendant, you use other people as a mirror to judge yourself. This is why you’re so sensitive to their reactions. You don’t see the reactions of other people clearly, yet you base your self-worth on these very reactions.

It’s easy for you to feel unworthy with Neptune square Ascendant. You might sacrifice your individuality to make others happy, but this only makes you feel worse in the long run.

Sometimes, people see the worst about you with Neptune square Ascendant, even if their judgments are false. This aspect causes others to project things onto you without waiting for the facts.

Others may put the things that they hate about themselves onto you, so your image gets distorted.

With Neptune square Ascendant, you will need to learn how to stand up for yourself. You must figure out how to be totally straightforward with people, even if this means they won’t like you. This is the only way to feel better about yourself.

This square will literally force you to create a strong sense of outer self. Squares are tough, but they are great teachers.

As a child, you may have felt out of place. Some people with Neptune square Ascendant even feel like an alien. It’s possible that you didn’t know where you fit in.

Keep in mind that all of this pain is teaching you how to develop a strong sense of self, regardless of what other people think.

Your ego and identity are somewhat fragmented with Neptune square Ascendant, so you may be confused about how you fit into the world. You will slowly figure out your place through trial and error.

Be careful that you actually take action instead of daydreaming or victimizing yourself. This square can only be healed through hard work! It is important to discipline yourself so that your dreams become a reality.

The Neptune square Ascendant aspect is all about integrating your spiritual self into the real world, regardless of what people think. You will learn that it’s much better to be yourself than to try to be someone else.

Don’t let negativity destroy your confidence in your abilities. You have a lot of creative and spiritual abilities, but it will take work to integrate them into your outer personality.

Not everything will be perfect all of the time, but as long as you’re representing your truest self, then you’re actively healing Neptune square Ascendant.

Be careful that you don’t become too self serving with the Venus conjunct Ascendant aspect. It’s easy to become very selfish with this aspect, because these qualities come naturally to you.

When you want beautiful things, they simply fall into your lap. Others are always enamored by you. This makes it hard for you to put yourself in other people’s shoes.

If Venus is in your 1st house, you will be especially aware of the effects that your Venus conjunct Ascendant aspect has on your outer personality. Venus in the 12th means that you will be unaware of these qualities, so you might be confused when other people react to you as though you’re an angel.

Ultimately with Venus conjunct Ascendant, you need to learn that you are more than your beauty and charm. Figure out who you are inside and learn how to reveal your inner self to other people.

Be careful that you don’t use your Venus conjunct Ascendant to harm others. You can easily charm or trick other people, but this won’t help you in the long run.

You need to learn how to value deeper love and hard work. Thing come naturally to you, at least at first, but the best things in your life will take time and work.

With Venus conjunct Ascendant, you have a need to love and be loved, but this can feel superficial. You want deeper love, yet you don’t know how to get it.

In fact, you may even swing back and forth between wanting love and expecting it to fall into your lap. Again, true love will take work.

You must learn how to find a true, deep love that isn’t just based on how things appear. Ultimately, you want people to love you for more than your beauty and charm, but you must reveal your deeper self for this to happen.

Venus Trine Ascendant:

With Venus trine Ascendant, you are naturally supportive of others. Your personality is charming and non-threatening, so you are easy to be around.

In fact, you tend to compliment others naturally, whether this is through words or actions. You’re aesthetically pleasing without even trying!

Your vibe is calm and happy. Although your personality is Venusian, you also have the physically beautiful elements, too.

You may have a unique sense of fashion that fits your personality, or you might spend a lot of time on how you look. You might simply be physically beautiful or have an attractive energy that shines through.

With Venus trine Ascendant, you have a strong sense of artistry. You just know when something is refined and beautiful.

Venus trine Ascendant makes these talents natural for you. These traits are incorporated into your personality without effort; they are very consistent parts of your outer self.

However, you may be very particular about your style, appearance, or aesthetic. How this manifests will depend on the signs that your Venus trine Ascendant is in.

You may have a love for music, art, clothing, or other beautiful things. 

Although Venus trine Ascendant has a lot to do with physical beauty, you’re also very charming, generous, and helpful. Your outer personality is very pleasing!

Venus trine Ascendant can make you very giving. You might go too far and turn into a people pleaser, but this is only because you always want things to be nice and charming. You may go to great lengths to avoid unpleasant fights.

These qualities simply flow and are quite natural to you. They may even be subconscious, but your Venusian qualities will be very evident to others.

Be careful that, with Venus trine Ascendant, you don’t take these positive traits for granted. Remember that people want to know who you truly are beneath your mask.

Sometimes, the Venus trine Ascendant aspect makes it harder for you to develop a deeper sense of self. When everyone likes your mask, there’s no reason to do the inner work.

People naturally like you, but it’s very important with Venus trine Ascendant that you work to figure out who you are beneath your charm.

Venus Sextile Ascendant:

With the Venus sextile Ascendant aspect, you feel a sense of ease and self-acceptance around other people. You may be charming and graceful in some way.

Typically, people see a sense of inner beauty in you. This might not be as obvious as the trine or conjunction, but you do have Venusian qualities that you can call upon in social situations.

Venus sextile Ascendant means you have a great sense of color and style that is uniquely yours. You may enjoy fashion, the arts, or other creative endeavors.

You can appear “Venusian” to other people when you try, but this is something you need to actively do. These qualities aren’t 100% integrated into your personality.

With Venus sextile Ascendant, you need to learn how to show your charm and social graces around other people. You already have the talents that you need, but you can learn how to switch this side of you on and off.

These qualities can be part of your mask, but they aren’t totally natural. You must work to become more Venusian.

Ultimately, you will find your Venusian qualities with this Venus sextile Ascendant aspect when you take time to develop your confidence.

However, always remember that there is more than just charm to a personality. You must simultaneously learn how to represent yourself authentically, rather than trying to show other people what you think they want to see.

Venus Opposition Ascendant:

The Venus opposition Ascendant aspect is also called Venus conjunct Descendent or Venus setting. This aspect means that you want to feel beautiful, but you don’t know how to create harmony within yourself.

You have a lot of drive to gain acceptance and social status. You truly want to be liked, but you automatically assume that others won’t enjoy your company.

Venus opposition Ascendant means that you’re concerned with taste and aesthetics. You’re hyper-judgmental of your own appearance and design skills.

On a deeper level, you’re energetically sensitive as to what actions are appropriate, so you tend to be very careful around other people.

You’re afraid of reading situations improperly. Although you sometimes misread the signals, you tend to rectify your mistakes very quickly.

With Venus opposition Ascendant, you tend to see yourself on the surface level only. You may think that others can’t love you for anything but your appearance or outer aspects.

Even though Venus opposition Ascendant is a difficult aspect, you probably have an easier time socially. The issues come from within, but they aren’t necessarily apparent to others, so people might not realize you have these insecurities.

You truly desire a harmonious and peaceful life. In fact, aggressive people or conflict really upsets you, so you may become a peacekeeper within your family or friend group.

Venus opposition Ascendant means that you also desire tranquil, amicable relationships. You’re good at settling things in a peaceful way, so you tend to excel as a diplomat or in any field where negotiating is required.

Many of your Venusian qualities show themselves in one-on-one scenarios. You can deal much more easily with a singular person than you can with a group.

Although your artistic skills aren’t super obvious to others, you can be very creative or expressive in private. It’s important that, with Venus opposition Ascendant, you find an outlet for your creative side.

Venus opposition Ascendant can mean that your self-worth is tied to your partner or friend in one-on-one relationships. You may feel more self-confident or accepted when you have a partner in crime.

Venus opposition Ascendant means that you may have a hard time seeing your own beauty. You’re only able to recognize the Venusian qualities in yourself when you’re not wearing your outer mask, so you can develop self-love when you spend time in private.

The goal is to learn how to integrate your own version of beauty into your outer personality. This happens when you actively learn to be less concerned about what others think.

Work to develop your morals about what you think is beautiful. Judge things using your own mind instead of looking at what others think.

Venus Square Ascendant:

With Venus square Ascendant, you underestimate your true worth. You may feel that your appearance or outer self is all that matters, and you don’t see beauty in the deeper parts of your soul.

You’re probably never completely satisfied with the way that you look. You always feel as though something is missing or wrong, but you don’t know what it is.

Your looks aren’t what you consider beautiful. No matter how hard you try, you can never truly be as good looking as you want to be. 

Venus square Ascendant creates a strong need within you to fit into society. You want to be just as pleasant, charming, and aesthetically pleasing as everyone else, but you always find yourself lacking.

Although you project a lot of confidence, most of it isn’t real. Your self-esteem can disappear at any second because it doesn’t come from within.

Many of these traits with Venus square Ascendant come from a deep sense of inadequacy or shame. You feel that you aren’t lovable, so you try to create the look or outer personality of someone who is.

You feel like you’re never graceful or charming enough because you put so much value on how others see you. It’s impossible for you to see the truth about yourself.

You may come across as superficial with Venus square Ascendant. Your personality makes it seem like you’re only attracted to surface level things/people, or you may be drawn to sensual pleasures without a deeper sense of intimacy.

Venus square Ascendant also means that you attract superficial people. This is typically because you believe that superficiality is important and that it’s all you deserve.

People don’t try to get to know you on a deeper level. The type of individuals you attract won’t change until you rearrange your own values.

Ultimately, you still feel a sense of emptiness with Venus square Ascendant, because the problem comes from within.

Sexually, your preferences aren’t totally integrated with your inner personality. You will either be too sexual, or you will avoid physical intimacies altogether.

People with Venus square Ascendant may be the ones dressed in leather at a regular restaurant, or they’re the lifelong virgins. Sex is something that you want but are also afraid of.

Venus square Ascendant makes you magnetic, yet you also scare other people. They’re drawn to you but have negative feelings around you at the same time.

This aspect truly creates an imbalance within you in many ways. You can be very extreme about certain pleasures, but then you can also be too passive or act like a people pleaser.

Sometimes, people with Venus square Ascendant get taken advantage of because they don’t know how to say no to others.

To heal Venus square Ascendant, you will need to push against society. You are trying to live by the values of society surrounding beauty and charm, but they aren’t working for you.

The path is to go within and heal the shadow self. Others won’t find you beautiful on a deeper level until you truly love yourself.

To some people, ugliness is more beautiful than charm when it’s real. The goal is to look at what is true, rather than focusing on how things appear. After all, you have everything you need inside, but these values simply need to be accessed.

Venus square Ascendant is all about healing the inner self and learning to love oneself without the acceptance of others. You must heal your self esteem and discover what love truly means to you.

However, with Mars trine Ascendant, you may not realize that other people don’t have the same energy levels and drive as you. It’s easy for you to steamroll over other people without realizing if you’re not careful.

Trines are natural qualities, but they can be too easy. You simply can’t understand how other people don’t automatically act as you do.

The goal is to learn, with Mars trine Ascendant, how to follow your own dreams and keep your strong outward nature without hurting others in the process.

Lastly, keep in mind that you will express these Mars trine Ascendant qualities more if this is the only aspect to your Ascendant. Other aspects to the Ascendant will change and transmute these qualities a bit.

These qualities of the Mars sextile Ascendant aspect don’t always show up in your outer personality. Sometimes, you will only show the qualities of your Ascendant sign, while other times you come off more like an Aries rising.

You feel most like yourself when you’re actively doing something. Irritation plagues you when you’re forced to sit still.

Sexually, you’re very active and outgoing. You want a relationship that is independent, but also want a partner who can keep up with you in bed. 

Your vibe is physical and animalistic, at least in some ways. You tend to remind people of sex, especially when your Mars is triggered.

Keep in mind that sextiles take hard work. You have the natural parts of the Mars sextile Ascendant aspect in the subconscious mind, but you need to get them conscious in order to fully learn how to express this aspect.

You tend to find the qualities of your Mars sign in other people and feel that they aren’t totally present in your own personality. You may relay on your partners to give you energy and drive, but you will come to learn that all of the motivation you need is already within you.

When you’re looking at Sun-Moon aspects, the Sun person typically represents the ego or identity while the Moon person is the emotional undercurrent of the relationship. The Sun individual will be more outgoing and action-oriented; the Moon person will be more soft and sensitive.

Sun Conjunct Moon Synastry

The Sun conjunct Moon synastry aspect is is one of the traditional soulmate placements. It creates a very good foundation for any relationship. Both people are able to understand and relate to each other.

In nature, the Moon reflects the light of the Sun. This conjunction is similar because the Moon individual plays a supportive role, while the Sun individual is more active.

The Sun person will support the Moon person in a more energetic, upbeat way, while the Moon individual will be softer towards the Sun person.

Both people fill in the gaps for what the other is missing. In the astrological chart, the Sun and Moon are the two primary signs, so together this couple creates a well-rounded picture.

Sometimes, the Moon person can be too submissive and the Sun person too dominant and active. If you have this Sun conjunct Moon synastry aspect, be careful that you keep maintain the balance so that neither person feels off-kilter.

This Sun conjunct Moon synastry aspect seems to be more natural when the woman is the Moon and the man is the Sun in the aspect. However, this can also create gender roles that feel too extreme, depending on the personalities.

If the genders are swapped (the man is the Moon and the woman is the Sun) then the relationship may be more balanced. In some cases, this aspect can cause problems if the man feels that he is being cast in a role that is too feminine.

Ultimately, the Sun individual will “lead” the relationship, but the Moon person is needed to create the softer, emotional underbelly of the partnership. Neither can function as well without the other.

Sun Trine Moon Synastry

With the Sun trine Moon synastry aspect, the relationship simply flows. The Moon person relies on the Sun person’s energy, enthusiasm, and vibrancy, while the Sun person appreciates the emotional support of the Moon person.

This couple has a strong emotional bond. They’re attracted to each other mentally and naturally understand each other.

However, this Sun sextile Moon synastry aspect isn’t totally natural. These qualities are things the couple can work towards. The energy of this aspect exists right away, but it takes work to cultivate these qualities permanently.

Over time, a couple with the Sun sextile Moon synastry aspect can learn how to be more emotionally supportive and gentle with each other. They begin to understand each other’s emotions without verbal communication because there is an energetic flow.

The Sun sextile Moon aspect is great for a cooperative relationship. The couple may need to develop better communication skills over time, though.

All the Sun sextile Moon aspect means is that good communication and emotional understanding is possible. If both people are willing to work on the relationship, it can go the distance!

Sun Opposition Moon Synastry

The Sun opposition Moon synastry aspect creates a really unique bond. The couple is attracted to each other and there is a lot of strong energy, but the relationship can have a variety of emotional and mental issues, too.

Although this aspect binds the couple together in some way, it can be an emotional mismatch. The Moon person might feel like the Sun person is insensitive or doesn’t care about their feelings, while the Sun person might not realize this or may think that the Moon person is too sensitive.

The Sun person might feel like they’re held back from pursuing their goals because the Moon needs too much support from them.

The Moon person might have emotional issues from childhood that get in the way of pursuing this relationship. On the other hand, the Sun person may be too quick to act or have too large of an ego to truly see what the Moon person needs from them.

Keep in mind that the Sun opposition Moon synastry isn’t bad. Often, oppositions in synastry can be complementary. They provide a charged energy that makes the couple want to stay with each other.

This couple will be truly fascinated with each other with the Sun opposition Moon synastry aspect. However, the relationship may feel like it’s a constant struggle between the identity of the Sun person and the emotions of the Moon person.

There’s a lot of potential for hurt feelings to surface in this relationship.

Ultimately, the Sun opposition Moon synastry aspect can work in a partnership if both people are willing to invest in learning how to communicate about their emotions in a mature and positive way.

Sun Square Moon Synastry

The Sun square Moon synastry aspect can be difficult in a relationship. The Sun person may seem controlling, domineering, egotistical, or self-centered, while the Moon person may appear too delicate or emotional.

Much of this comes from conditioning. The Sun person has learned that to attack or control the other is the only way to have a relationship, while the Moon person has learned that they need to be dependent on their partner in order to make it work.

The Sun square Moon synastry aspect means that both people are attracted to each other, but the relationship always feels pretty tense. They may even be competitive with each other.

Sometimes, the Sun person feels like they have to give up or compromise on their goals in order to please the Moon person.

The Moon individual is slower to act and needs more daily security, while the Sun person probably wants something bigger out of life. 

With this Sun square Moon synastry aspect, the Sun person probably doesn’t get the support that they need to achieve their dreams. They then try to control or dominate the Moon person to feel as though they have something.

Ultimately, this dynamic can create a lot of conflict. The Moon person can’t understand the drive and identity of the Sun, while the Sun person can’t feel the emotions of the Moon.

Sometimes, one or both people refuse to support each other, while other times both individuals simply don’t understand how the other functions. They’re very different people!

The first step to healing this Sun square Moon synastry aspect is for both people to develop a deep desire to understand each other. They function very differently, so it will take a lot of communication practice.

As they work through these issues, the Sun person should be delicate with the Moon person’s feelings, while the Moon person should be careful of hurting the Sun individual’s ego.

The Sun square Moon synastry aspect means that both people will need to work through their emotional issues and delve into how they were raised and why they have their specific values.

Venus-Mars Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Mars Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Venus-Mars aspects are super intense in the synastry chart. They’re always charged and indicate both sexual and romantic/relationship-oriented energy.

Typically, the Mars person is the more aggressive individual while the Venus person is more passive. However, this will depend on the other aspects in the chart as well as the signs.

I find that Venus-Mars aspects are often present in the charts of people who stay together. This is because both planets are needed to balance a relationship.

Even the difficult Venus-Mars aspects can create a lot of attraction. They’re charged, and may be hard, but remember that difficult aspects are better than no aspects because they create passionate, focused energy.

However, on some level, both people feel a lot of passion with this Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect. It’s extremely physical and usually denotes a great sex life.

The individuals in this relationship each view each other as the ideal mates. 

In the long-term, this aspect can be a bit difficult. Although the couple is attracted to each other, they also get under each others’ skin, which can make for a lot of passion arguments followed by physical “making up.”

This Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect is super powerful, but it isn’t necessarily blissful or peaceful. It causes a lot of commotion and frisson, for good or bad.

The chemistry in this relationship won’t die down quickly; this is a great aspect for the long-haul. However, the couple will need to learn how to communicate and to talk more calmly about issues in order to make this relationship work and remain passionate.

There will be a clear polarity between the masculine and the feminine with this aspect. The couple doesn’t necessarily like or dislike this polarity, but it naturally exists.

Ultimately, the Venus conjunct Mars synastry aspect means that the intensity in this relationship is off the charts. This can manifest in the positive or negative manners, or can be a combination of both.

Venus Trine Mars Synastry

With the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect, the romantic feelings are strong and natural in the relationship. This couple is sexually compatible, but also experiences the romance of being “in love.”

The energy between this couple is very natural. Even if the relationship doesn’t last, the couple will always hold a fond place in their hearts for each other.

In the beginning and throughout time, the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect means that the relationship is very fulfilling for both people. This isn’t something that takes a lot of work. 

The couple knows how to please each other sexually. In fact, the physical aspect of this Venus trine Mars synastry relationship is just as fulfilling as the romantic part.

With this aspect, the energy just flows. However, like any Venus-Mars aspects, the Mars person tends to have a slightly more masculine energy. This will be less obvious than the other aspects, but there is still an undertone of masculinity versus femininity. 

Venus trine Mars synastry means that the way the Mars person initiates is pleasing to the Venus person. Both people naturally know how to please the other in bed.

Ultimately, the Venus trine Mars synastry aspect means that the romantic relationship is natural, affectionate, and fulfilling. The couple enjoys each other sexually, but they are also on the same level in a romantic and creative sense. 

Unless other aspects indicate something different, this relationship will be quite easy, harmonious, and pleasant.

Venus Sextile Mars Synastry

Although the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect isn’t as strong as the trine, it still indicates that there is a lot of romantic attraction between the couple. They know how to fulfill each other romantically and sexually.

In this relationship, there is both a lot of passion and a sense of emotional tenderness. With Venus sextile Mars in synastry, there is a lot of potential for a really fulfilling relationship.

However, the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect is a bit more subtle. The chemistry is there, but it’s more of an undertone. 

This relationship will be very easy and simple. The couple is each attracted to the other and are pleased by the other. They may not be each other’s usual “type,” but this won’t bother either person.

The Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect means that it’s very easy to develop good sexual chemistry, too. There may not be as much sexual intensity as the conjunction or trine, but there is the potential to develop a really fulfilling sex life over time.

Generally, the Venus sextile Mars synastry aspect won’t make or break a relationship, but it is an easier aspect to have in the synastry chart.

Venus Opposition Mars Synastry

The Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect indicates a strong and compelling relationship. There is a lot of romantic and sexual attraction between this couple.

However, this Venus opposition Mars synastry relationship can be a bit of a roller-coaster. Both people may experience emotional ups and downs that cause problems in the relationship. It can feel a bit unstable.

Sometimes, this relationship feels like it’s always changing. The couple might be immensely attracted to each other in one moment, then repulsed by each other the next.

Generally, the Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect makes for a really complex relationship. It can be uncomfortable or difficult, but this aspect also creates an opportunity for both people to grow.

Remember that in the synastry chart, oppositions aren’t necessarily bad. They create a charged energy because of the polarity, but they also indicate that there’s an opportunity to change and learn.

On the one hand, this aspect creates a really intense romantic and sexual energy that borders on obsession. There isn’t a lack of desire in this relationship!

If this Venus opposition Mars synastry relationship turns negative, one or both people might become jealous or possessive. They might feel like they’re competing with everyone else. 

The opposition can become too volatile and polarized, leading to both people feeling like absolute opposites sexually and romantically. If this isn’t solved, it will eventually reach a breaking point.

However, this Venus opposition Mars synastry aspect has a positive element, too. Each person mirrors something on the other person because the way that they approach both sex and romance is opposite. If both people are able to recognize this mirroring, then they can explain their own desires to the other person and learn how to compromise.

Communication is really important with this aspect. Each person must be willing to let go of their preconceived notions and to transcend in the relationship.

Venus Square Mars Synastry

With the Venus square Mars synastry aspect, the emotion and sexual pull is really strong, but this couple will also experience a lot of miscommunications.

Typically, the Mars person will come across as too aggressive or inconsiderate, or the Venus person might feel like the Mars person is only interested in them sexually, not romantically. The Venus person usually needs more of the relationship aspect.

The Mars person person may feel that the Venus individual is too difficult, sensitive, or closed-off. They want more bluntness and animal instincts, but the Venus person desires a bit more finesse.

The Mars person might be attracted to the Venus person’s beauty or looks, but they’re not able to get what they want because the Venus person doesn’t react the way they desire when the Mars person initiates.

The Venus person is usually a bit more jealous than the Mars person in this relationship, but possessiveness may be an issue for both people, too.

In the beginning of the relationship, other people can see the tension. Some of this is because this couple might have really public, angry arguments.

Although both people are really attracted to each other with the Venus square Mars synastry aspect, the timing might be off. 

The Venus square Mars synastry aspect can be almost as charged as the conjunction, but the sexual energy is more unconscious. The couple might feel like it’s hard to actually access the sexual energy, even though it’s always there.

In fact, this relationship can be really frustrating for both people. They know that it could be something great, but they just can’t access it. This is especially true for the Mars individual.

Their sex life may never be quite what they’re looking for. Each person is attracted to the other, but they never seem to have the same timing. It’s hard for them to communicate what they truly want from the other; their wants and needs are quite different, so they don’t understand each other.

This couple may not realize how much they love each other until they’re physically away from each other, only to fight when they’re around each other again.

This Venus square Mars synastry relationship is love-hate. It is very possible to make it work long-term, but it will require a lot of communication. This couple will need to tap into the unconscious energy that is hard to reach in order to find romantic and sexual satisfaction.

Keep in mind that things won’t just resolve with this Venus square Mars synastry aspect. It will take a lot of work and communication to be able to work through these difficulties.

An Introduction To Mundane Astrology: Nations, Politics, & Big Events

An Introduction To Mundane Astrology: Nations, Politics, & Big Events

There are many different branches of astrology. Mundane astrology is the branch of astrology governing places, countries, cities, entities, corporations, geographical events, and the world.

In natal astrology we study a single person’s chart, but in mundane astrology, we study something larger, something that’s more established.

The term Mundane astrology comes from the Latin word mundus, meaning world. It’s quite literally the astrology of the world!

Mundane astrology shows us what is happening in the world due to the gravitational pull of the planets. It can be used to predict the future and prepare for possible events.

Why Study Mundane Astrology?

If you believe that Mundane astrology is true, then you could theoretically predict world events. Even if we can’t actually do anything to change these events (as this is usually impossible because the energy of the planets is so strong), you can still be prepared for what is coming.

For example, the United States is entering its Pluto return right now. This only happens about every 250 years, so this is the first Pluto return for the US.

Looking at the chart helps me a lot because I can try to figure out what I think is going to happen and prepare.

Just before the stay-at-home order hit, astrologers were predicting some sort of massive lockdown. In fact, Mundane astrologers had been speaking up about the year 2020 for over 50 years! Mundane astrology can be super helpful if you’re interested in the astrology of politics.

I also love using Mundane astrology for my business in order to work with the energies.

Even if you only study Mundane astrology for your own amusement, it will at the very least help you be prepared while you become a better astrologer and learn more about various placements.

How To Read A Mundane Astrology Chart:

To draw up a Mundane astrology chart, you do the exact same thing as you would with your own chart. 

For a nation or country, you simply need the birth date and place of the country. This is usually the “official” time and place that the country or nation came into existence. For the United States, we use the date, place, and time the Declaration of Independence was signed.

However, you can also use the first official inauguration if there is no clear date as to when the nation truly began.

You do the same type of thing for a business, entity, town, city, or other place or thing. If you don’t have a specific birth time then you can either use your best guess, use 12pm (and omit references to the points and houses), or you can use your pendulum to determine a birth time that both looks and feels correct.

A Mundane astrology chart will look the same as any other, but the signs, houses, and planets have slightly different meanings that clearly apply to bigger entities.

A Caution About Mundane Astrology:

I hate to say that but, after having the fear of GOD put in me one too many times when I was first starting out, I feel it’s necessary.

Don’t believe everything you read! Many Mundane astrologers will present their opinion like it’s fact.

For example, with upcoming Pluto return, I have heard that our government will be overturned, that the world will explode because of climate issues, and that we will move to another planet. I mean seriously? Other countries have made it through their Pluto returns, but some haven’t. So at the end of the day, who knows?

We’re all just guessing based on our own associations, our experiences, and the history that we have researched.

Additionally, many astrologers let their own political, social, or ethical beliefs influence what they see in a chart. Most of us do this sometimes (it’s really hard not to) but it’s also really important to look at the chart objectively.

If we just see what we want to see then we won’t be prepared. So, if an astrologer is giving you a bunch of good news that goes against common sense and the current climate, don’t put too much stock into that.

However, don’t believe the astrologers who only present doom and gloom, either. Usually, what’s going to happen in somewhere in the middle of the two extremes.

Always trust your gut over any blog post! I’m definitely not correct 100% of the time and I don’t imagine that anyone else is, either. We are all influenced by our experiences and our biases.

What Do The Signs Mean In Mundane Astrology?

I won’t list out the meanings of the signs here because, in Mundane astrology, you can read the signs as you would regularly. 

However, the meanings of the planets and the houses are very different, so I’ll go into those below!

I recommend looking at the planet/house first and then applying the meaning of the sign to the aspect using your regular knowledge of the sign’s elements and qualities.

What Do The Planets Mean In Mundane Astrology?

In my opinion, the planets are very important in the Mundane astrology chart. I recommend looking at the planets first and seeing what you can pick out in a chart.

The Sun:

In Mundane astrology, the Sun represents the leaders and people in authority positions. These are the folks that the public does or must look up to. The Sun would represent prime ministers, kings, emperors, presidents, magistrates, judges, etc.

Sometimes, the Sun can represent individuals who the public listens to, even if they aren’t technically in an authority position. This authority is bestowed by the people.

In a Mundane “natal” chart, the Sun can also represent the force or will of the nation/country.

The Moon:

If the Sun is the leader, the Moon represents. the people in general. Sometimes this is all of the people, while other times the Moon can represent women more specifically. It also indicates crowds.

Alternatively, the Moon can represent anything to do with water (including transport, conditions, etc.) as well as land and crops.

The Moon almost always shows where the public’s attention falls. Anything that draws a crowd or that people notice is related to the Moon.

Mercury:

Mercury represents anything relating to news and media. This includes newspapers, TV channels, books, publishers, the press, speakers, news commentators, professors, and intellectuals. Sometimes, Mercury can also represent what is being taught or conveyed intellectually.

In Mundane astrology, Mercury can indicate transportation (usually public) as well as communication.

Venus:

Venus represents artists, musicians, actors, athletes, theater, festivals, children, courtship, and marriage. Everything relating to beauty and entertainment is Venus.

When Venus is badly aspected, the beauty and harmony of a country will suffer.

Mars:

Mars represents the military (the navy, the army, the air force, etc.), the local police, attacks on the country, disputes, conflict, and opposition. Anything relating to fire will show in Mars when looking at the Mundane astrology chart.

However, Mars can also represent leaders who aren’t in the public eye, such as engineers, military leaders, and doctors. This planet can also show epidemics, crimes of violence, and more commotions. If something violent is happening, look to Mars first.

Jupiter:

In Mundane astrology, Jupiter is a bit of a duality. It represents the religious community as well as the judicial system.

Priests, religious leaders, bankers, judges, and lawyers are all represented in Jupiter. Because Jupiter rules both expansive finances and philosophy, it can show things relating to order, peace, prosperity, religious beliefs, and more.

Saturn:

Saturn represents the local law enforcement and the minor executives. For example, Saturn in the United States tends to represent the executive branches of each state or city.

Alternatively, Saturn can represent civil servant employees, land owners, mine operators, any public buildings or parks, and the elderly population.

In a more negative sense, Saturn shows epidemics, large-scale tragedy, public sadness, national calamities, and scarcities.

Uranus:

Uranus is the black sheep of the Mundane astrology chart. It represents political tension of all natures. When Uranus shows up, the people are trying to break out of the mold.

Typically, Uranus specifically shows rioting, strikes, and breaks for individualism. It can sometimes indicate right wing politics (more on the Libertarian side) but can also show scientific discoveries and inventions.

Uranus governs air and rail transport as well as labor organizations, explosions, anarchy, and the electrical and radio industry.

Neptune:

If Uranus leans right then Neptune leans left, towards socialism and communism. However, Neptune can also represent socialized medicine and hospitalization, charities, covet plots, fraud, illicit activities, and loss.

Neptune in certain aspects can indicate illusion. It can show when the people are unable to see what’s real, and it can show the illusions that a country or nation projects to the rest of the world.

However, Neptune represents the spirituality of a country as well. This is on a much deeper level than religion. It can indicate drugs or addictions on a mass-scale.

Pluto:

At its best, Pluto represents change and rebirth. In any chart, Pluto is all about metamorphosis and regeneration, regardless of how painful that may be.

In Mundane astrology, Pluto can indicate many things. Some of these include political undergrounds, espionage, organized crime, wealth, power, control, violence, rape, death, hidden information, organized labor, mob psychology, and the collective unconscious of the nation.

The Ascendant:

The Ascendant shows how the country/nation/entity/corporation is viewed by others. Aspects to the ascendant can more specifically show if the entity is viewed in a positive or negative light.

What Do The Houses Mean In Mundane Astrology?

Although I think the planets are super important in Mundane astrology, I definitely recommend that you do some research into the houses, too. Here’s my description of the houses and what they rule in Mundane astrology.

The 1st House:

In Mundane astrology, the 1st house rules the country as a whole. It also shows how the country/city/entity/corporation comes across to others, because this is where the Ascendant sits.

When you’re looking at transits, pay special attention to anything in the 1st house. These planets will affect the country as a whole. Most huge events show up in the 1st house.

The 2nd House:

The 2nd house rules the wealth of a nation, the economy, currency, revenue, banks, the Stock Exchange, financial institutions, money market, and trade. 

It also rules the possessions or property of people as a whole. Anything material is ruled by the 2nd house. 

Planets in the 2nd house will affect the finances or economy of the country, nation, or corporation.

The 3rd House:

The 3rd house rules all sorts of short-term transportation such as travel by car, bus, subway, or bike. Because the 3rd house is communication, it shows everything relating to information and news, such as the Post Office, the media, the news, internet, telephones, magazines, publications, and newspapers.

It can also rule young people and education or places of learning. 

Generally, the 3rd house will show the way that information is relayed and received in a country. Any planets transiting the 3rd house will affect either the reception or the output of information.

The 4th House:

The 4th house is the foundation. It rules the home, land owners, and workers of the land, as well as foundational cities and the basis for which individuals are working/voting. Sometimes, the 4th house also rules the weather.

Because the 4th house is opposite the 10th (which generally rules the leaders or people in power), it’s all about the common person/family unit. It’s usually a direct contrast with the leaders and may indicate where the country came from or how it was initially created. 

The 5th House:

The 5th house rules theater, sporting events, places of amusement and entertainment, gambling, and social functions. It shows how the people find hobbies and spend their free time; it’s all about what folks do for fun as a society. What things are considered recreational? The 5th house will show this.

However, this house can also rule the birth rate, children (and how they’re raised), and sexual concerns. 

The 6th House:

The 6th house rules public health, hospitals, healthcare, and epidemics. However, it also rules trade unions, national services, civil servants of the country, and workers and employees of a company.

This house can show a country’s general attitude towards work and health.

The 7th House:

The 7th house rules foreign affairs, relations with other countries (for better or worse), and the national marriage/divorce rate.

It shows the “other parties” involved with the nation/country/corporation. It can also indicate other people involved in an event who are victims.

The 8th House:

The 8th house rules the death rate, the types of people who die, how the nation treats death, and financial relations with foreign countries. It can also indicate how much debt a country or corporation is in as well as loans, interest, and taxes.

The 8th house can also be relevant the people are feeling oppressed or there is some sort of power struggle.

The 9th House:

The 9th house rules higher education (college or university), professors, and philosophic and scientific institutions as well as religion, churches, and religious influence on the public.

However, the 9th house can also rule long distance travel by a plane or boat or places of recreational/large events. The 9th house also governs law and the judicial systems.

The 10th House:

The 10th house shows the person or people in power (such as the monarch or president) and the government in general. Sometimes, the 10th house can also rule famous people, even if they’re not actually in positions of power.

In a more national sense, the 10th house rules reputation, credit, power, and public employment rate.

When a planet is transiting the 10th house, it will impact the leaders of the nation/corporation or the government or ruling entity as a whole. This house is especially relevant when studying the astrology of politics.

The 11th House:

The 11th house rules the masses and groups. Mob psychology is definitely present here. The 11th house is especially useful if you’re looking at a Mundane astrology chart for an event.

However, most “rebellious” periods or times of change have to do with the 11th house. Idealism and hope is also represented here.

The 12th House:

The 12th house rules places of confinement such as prisons, hospitals, asylums, secret societies, and occult religions. It also rules the people who work or live in these places.

It also rules endings and can indicate how an event or reign will end.

When a planet transits the 12th house, this usually indicates that something hidden will come to light.

 
Moon-Ascendent Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Ascendent Aspects In The Natal Chart

Moon-Ascendant aspects show how you express your emotions around others. These aspects also indicate how emotional you appear to other people.

With the beneficial Moon-Ascendant aspects, you not only have a healthy means of expressing emotion, but you’re able to pick up on and adapt to the emotions of other people.

With the more difficult aspects, you either can’t express your emotions or they come out sideways. You still intuit how others feel, but you don’t react to those emotions in a way that truly serves you.

Ultimately, Moon-Ascendant aspects are beneficial to learn about because by working through these issues, you can express a more authentic version of your emotional self.

Moon Conjunct Ascendant

With Moon conjunct Ascendant, it’s hard for you to hide your emotional self. This aspect means that you emotions are on display for everyone else to see; how you feel is obvious to others.

You interact with other people almost automatically through your learned habits. In fact, your emotions dictate many of your outward reactions. Your relationship skills were conditioned at an early age by your family (particularly by your mother or female caretaker). 

Moon conjunct Ascendant means that you’re really impressionable. You pick up a lot of energy from the environment and are sensitive to even the slightest changes.

The way that you present yourself may be confusing to others because you give off mixed signals. It’s as though who you are changes as your emotions change. Even your physical appearance may appear to morph with your moods.

Moon conjunct Ascendant can indicate that you try to keep others at arm’s length but simultaneously desire deep relationships. In fact, your outer personality is filled with these types of contradictions. Others just can’t figure out what you actually want. This is because your outer personality is ruled by emotions rather than logic, so you change as your moods change.

Your facial expressions reveal many of your moods, even if you do try to hide them. However, most people with Moon conjunct Ascendant don’t even realize that they appear moody to others. They simply feel that their personality is who they are in the moment. They don’t realize that their extreme sensitivity and reactions are confusing to others.

With Moon conjunct Ascendant, your emotions are often based on what you interpret others are feeling about you. If you sense that someone has a negative thought towards you, your whole mood and persona will change. You might be extremely sensitive and reactive with this placement.

If your Moon conjunct Ascendant is in the 1st house, you will have frequent, outward emotional displays. If your Moon conjunct Ascendant (or either planet/point) sits in the 12th house then these emotional displays will be hidden or below the surface.

You have a strong attachment to family, your childhood, and your home, but this can also make you moody. All of these topics will trigger emotional responses that you can’t contain.

With this conjunction, you can be needy or dependent based on your mood. You want to care for others or desire to be cared for in some way. Emotions simply don’t understand boundaries, and neither does your outer persona. However, this can shift quickly based on your mood.

Some people with the Moon conjunct Ascendant aspect show these qualities negatively as moodiness, too much sensitivity, and taking innocuous things personally. Others, with a bit of work, are more positive and use their emotions in an empathetic way towards others. There is a whole spectrum with this aspect!

If you have Moon conjunct Ascendant, it’s helpful for you to find an outlet to express your emotions. The specific outlet will depend on the sign that the conjunction is in. Some people enjoy art, journaling, exercise, performing, etc. You simply need a way to get the emotions out.

Be careful that you don’t take things too personally. You may read into every movement and facial expression that you see on someone else. You can be extreme sensitive and reactive, but you can use this for good because you have so much empathy, too. You must simply incorporate a bit of logic to temper your reactions.

You should also work to place less importance on how others see you. Sometimes, you allow the moods of others to dictate your own emotions. Work on defining clear boundaries with empathy and kindness.

Moon Trine Ascendant

When other people first meet you, they instantly feel safe and secure. You give off a calming emotional energy with this Moon trine Ascendant aspect.

You have a lot of insight into the behavior and moods of others. In fact, it can seem like you have an uncanny ability to see what others are feeling, even when they’re not expressing it.

Unlike the conjunction, you’re very articulate when expressing your emotions. This is something that comes naturally with Moon trine Ascendant. You know how to speak about your own emotions without triggering others or making them feel insecure.

You’re highly adaptable to the feelings of others. You sense when someone is feeling a certain way and will change yourself to fit the situation, but you manage to do this in an authentic manner, remaining true to yourself.

Unfortunately, Moon trine Ascendant also means that you’re extremely sensitive. Although this is often a positive quality, extreme sensitivity can cause a lot of emotional pain, too.

Your goal is to incorporate logic into your emotional landscape in order to reason with your sensitivity. Don’t lose your empathy in the process, but simply work with facts to ground yourself so you don’t spiral out of control.

With the Moon trine Ascendant aspect, you probably have a deep connection to your family or town/country of origin. Although this can definitely cause some emotional strain, this is also a quality that grounds you when your feelings are too intense. 

Moon Sextile Ascendant

With Moon sextile Ascendant, you have some natural abilities with your emotions, but most emotional qualities need to be developed.

This aspect means that you have the opportunity to learn how to pick up on the moods of people around you. Right now, you probably sense emotions to some degree, but you haven’t quite refined this practice. It doesn’t come as naturally to you as it does to those with the trine.

You’re probably very good at gauging the moods of groups in general. When you walk into a room, you can sense the emotional tone of the gathering. 

This is a skill that you can hone and make more conscious. It can open up career opportunities for you or even help you in your personal life.

You also have the opportunity with Moon sextile Ascendant to learn how to show your emotions in an authentic way. You sometimes feel like you aren’t quite sure how to reveal your emotions to others, but a bit of practice will help you gain confidence in your emotional expression.

However, your sensitivity can be your weakness. As a child, you probably felt uncontrollable sadness when you learned about painful things in the world. Again, you have the opportunity to overcome this using logic.

Moon Opposition Ascendant

With Moon opposition Ascendant, you are highly sensitive to the impressions of others. It can be emotionally draining to you if you feel like someone else doesn’t like you, even in the smallest way.

However, you put off a cold, guarded, and detached vibe. Other people might see you as completely unemotional, or believe that your emotions are locked deep down.

With Moon opposition Ascendant, you’re very good at hiding your emotions from the outer world. Unless you want people to know you feel a certain way, no one will see even a hint of your true emotional landscape.

Once you’re in a relationship, this all changes. Moon opposition Ascendant means that you might look for a partner who will emotionally support you. You may even want someone to “fix” your emotional problems. This is because you don’t know how to do the emotional work yourself.

You look for emotional interdependence in relationships with Moon opposition Ascendant. Although this makes for really caring relationships, it can cross over into codependency. You want your partner to figure out what you need because even you don’t know.

Alternatively, if you partner doesn’t give you enough emotional support, you may feel stifled or unappreciated. Again, this is because you don’t really have a grasp on your own emotional needs. They are all completely unconscious.

The goal with Moon opposition Ascendant is to take responsibility for your own emotions and learn to be your own person, separate from others. See that it’s alright to share your emotions with others, even publicly, as long as they’re yours.

Learn how to figure out what your emotional needs are, then try to authentically show them to others. The first step is to go within, because if you don’t know what you want, you won’t be able to explain it to other people.

Moon Square Ascendant

With Moon square Ascendant, the way that you express yourself conflicts with how you truly feel emotionally. Your words, tone, or even body language is inaccurate or off.

It’s easy for you to misinterpret how others feel about you, especially when you first meet them. You typically interpret others’ feelings to be stronger than they actually are.

For example, someone may dislike one thing you said, but you interpret this to mean they dislike you. Because you’re so sensitive to the energy of others, you quickly blow things out of proportion.

Depending on the signs involved in this Moon square Ascendant aspect, you can also take rejection quite personally. You react to rejection based on the signs involved, as well.

You typically don’t express your true emotions with Moon square Ascendant, at least not in public. You’re scared of how others would respond to your authentic feelings, so you hide them away.

Although you sometimes shield your emotions, because you don’t want to elicit a negative reaction from other people, you also hide them to avoid relationship problems. However, this increases your inner tension. At some point, your emotions will come out sideways, either through passive-aggressive behavior or angry blowouts.

Moon square Ascendant usually develops because you couldn’t show your mother how you truly felt, at least some of the time. She probably reacted in the manner of the moon sign; for example, with Moon in Aries, the mother would have gotten angry when you revealed emotions that she didn’t like. Your mother unconsciously taught you that your emotions should not be seen by others.

Her reactions also taught you to be extra sensitive to the emotions of those around you in order to avoid causing upset. However, as an adult, this no longer serves you.

As you grow with this placement, you must learn to be less self-conscious about saying what you feel. Sure, your expression of emotions may elicit a negative reaction from someone, but learn to discern whether this reaction is towards what you’re feeling or you as a person.

Ultimately with Moon square Ascendant, you need to develop a sense of emotional security within yourself. Learn that it’s alright if others don’t approve of you as long as you approve of yourself. You will feel much more content within yourself when you finally express what you authentically feel.

Sun-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Sun-Ascendant Aspects In The Natal Chart

Sun-Ascendant aspects are all about how you appear versus who you truly are. For this reason, I think these aspects are so interesting!

These Sun-Ascendant aspects will dictate if you show your true qualities to others or if you wear a mask, hiding who you truly are.

Many of these aspects are qualities that we’re born with. While they can’t be changed or erased, these aspects can be transmuted for your highest good. With any aspect, there is always a lesson.

Sun Conjunct Ascendant

If you have the Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect, you get noticed. You probably make a strong impression on others without even trying. In a group, people notice you quickly or may even watch you, mesmerized by your very being.

You have a magnetic personality in a super “sunny” way. Unless your Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect is in a sign like Scorpio, you don’t come off as dark at all. Your disposition and your style are both sunny and happy.

Around others, your entire self is on display. You appear very upfront and honest, but you’re also pretty charismatic. In fact, this Sun conjunct Ascendant placement can make you seem more like a Leo than like the sign that the conjunction is in.

However, there is the potential for you to become too egotistical. Because you know the influence and power that you naturally possess, it can go to your head if you let it. You must learn humility and that this natural power is a gift, not something to use for selfish reasons.

The goal with Sun conjunct Ascendant is to learn how to become more giving and caring towards others. It will be essential to be in many different types of relationships in order to learn this.

Sometimes, you may struggle to express the sign that is opposite of your Sun conjunct Ascendant sign. For example, if your Sun conjunct Ascendant is in Cancer, it can feel like Capricorn is an integral part of you that you’re never able to show.

It’s essential that you learn, in this lifetime, to express the opposite sign to those you’re close with and are in intimate relationships with. Your shadow self is even more hidden, so this takes extra work for you to deal with the shadow self.

You have a lot of leadership potential with Sun conjunct Ascendant. You’re honest, upfront, and forceful. However, you must learn to remember that your employees or coworkers are important, too. You possess a good deal of initiative and might be a self-starter in many areas.

Remember that not everyone else has the same skills as you, but everyone does possess a unique set of talents that are equally as important. They may have different motives that you. It’s easy for you to only see your primary agenda, but try to broaden your lens when working with others and put yourself in their shoes.

Ultimately, you are self-reliant and self-confident. You wear your heart on your sleeve and want to be recognized for your own work.

One of the best qualities of this Sun conjunct Ascendant placement is that you aren’t afraid to jump in and get things done! You believe wholeheartedly that you’re in control of your destiny and that anything you desire can become a reality.

Sun Trine Ascendant

With the Sun trine Ascendant aspect, you typically make a great first impression, You are charming and attractive. People are naturally drawn to you.

In fact, you have a talent for attracting people to you, so you’re probably popular and well-liked, at least by general standards. You have a lot of energy that puts out rather magnetic vibes.

Sun trine Ascendant means that it’s easy for you to make friends with others. This is a natural talent of sorts; you were born with these skills.

You do have an authority to your presence, but you’re not too strict or too egotistical. You simply have an important energy. Others aren’t confused by your identity; you show who you are and have a clear outer personality.

With this Sun trine Ascendant aspect, you can be a bit restless in life. You may find yourself jumping from one thing to the next. It’s easy for you to woo people, but you must remember to actually stick around and build relationships.

This Sun trine Ascendant aspect is an easy trine. However, this means you may also coast through life, taking the admiration that others give you for granted. You may gravitate towards the people who don’t give you this attention and try to woo them. Don’t forget that true relationships are built on much deeper foundations than just admiration. 

Job-wise, you typically enjoy performing. This doesn’t only mean on stage (although you might like the spotlight). You can also “perform” with clients, in social grounds, playing sports, etc.

Sun Sextile Ascendant

With Sun sextile Ascendant, you express yourself quite openly, especially early in life. You’re probably charismatic and outgoing. People are quickly drawn towards you.

You are natural, easy to like, and friendly. You seem very open and approachable; nothing about your personality makes other people nervous.

Sun sextile Ascendant means that you also appear quite positive, especially when others first meet you. There is a sense of authority about you, but you come across as quite sincere instead of egotistical. 

You also appear to be quite truthful. It’s rare for someone to question if you were telling the truth after meeting you. This is because you seem so self-aware and self-expressive.

Generally, Sun sextile Ascendant means that you’re outgoing. Keep in mind that this is flavored by the signs that both planets are in. A Cancer Ascendant individual will be less outgoing than someone with a Leo Ascendant. 

However, Sun sextile Ascendant also means that you quickly grow bored or restless. You may move around a lot or bounce from thing to thing, especially in your younger years.

You have the opportunity to develop important leadership skills with this placement. You can cultivate a powerful, charismatic energy that takes you far in life.

With Sun sextile Ascendant, you also have the opportunity to develop into someone who flourishes in the public eye. However, unlike the trine, this will take a bit of work. Sun sextile Ascendant means that these outgoing, authoritative qualities aren’t totally natural to you, but they will be relatively easy to develop.

Remember to use your skills for good and for the benefit of others as well as yourself.

Sun Opposition Ascendant

With Sun opposition Ascendant, you struggle to fully express your identity unless you’re in a relationship. You need a companion to feel complete.

This partner may be a friend, business associate, or romantic significant other. This isn’t a solely romantic aspect. In fact, you probably feel more complete being around an enemy than you do by yourself. 

You may not stay single for very long. If you are single, then you’ll need someone else by your side, such as a partner or best friend. This is also a common aspect for twins. You simply can’t truly express your identity unless you have someone else to help you do so.

There may be a conflict with how you express yourself if you have the Sun opposition Ascendant aspect. You feel as though everyone gets the wrong impression of you. For example, you may come off as soft (when you feel tough or cold inside) or vice-versa. Look at the signs that the Sun opposition Ascendant aspect sits in to determine how this happens.

You may have insecurities about the qualities of your rising sign, or may dislike that other people see you as this sign. It’s very common for people with Sun opposition Ascendant to feel disconnected from their rising sign, as though it isn’t really them, or is a false perception of who they are.

With Sun opposition Ascendant, you achieve confidence through intimate relationships. You need to get close enough to someone to reveal this hidden side of you.

Sometimes, you may attract partners who are more like your Sun sign than you are, at least outwardly.

Alternatively, this Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect can mean that you seek out approval from other people in order to feel confident. It’s as though your core sense of self is hidden, so you look to other people to define it for you. Shadow work and therapy focusing on boundaries can be helpful with this issue.

Be careful with this Sun conjunct Ascendant aspect that you don’t rely on others to define yourself. Instead, work to develop an inner sense of self by accessing the shadow side.

Sun Square Ascendant

With the Sun square Ascendant aspect, you have low self-esteem around others. You may feel like you always present a “bad” or disjointed picture. This placement can cause a good deal of social anxiety.

You may feel that your true personality doesn’t line up with how others see you. It’s as though you wear a mask in public. When people get to know you intimately, they might confirm that you appear completely different upon first meeting than you truly are.

However, because you have a need for approval from others, you keep that mask up most of the time. Even though it probably doesn’t work well or make you feel good, the mask is all you know. Look to the sign that the Ascendant is in to see the qualities of this mask. You show the qualities of you Ascendant sign in public, but don’t feel that it’s truly who you are.

Early in life, you sacrificed what you wanted, such as your goals or ambitions. This was necessary to keep a relationship going or to keep those around you happy, but you built up resentment over time.

Teachers or other authority figures didn’t like or notice you with Sun conjunct Ascendant. You developed your Ascendant’s mask to try and make yourself more pleasing in some way, but it never truly worked.

You felt easily misunderstood. You were insecure about how you appeared to others, or you may have felt as though you were always an imposter.

In fact, Sun square Ascendant is all about imposter syndrome. It’s like you’re pretending to be someone else, someone who doesn’t have the same goals or values that you do. As you work to develop self-confidence, these two pieces will grow closer to each other.

You will come to realize with Sun square Ascendant that you must be your true self instead of following how others expect you to live. One of the benefits of this Sun square Ascendant placement is that it forces you to rely only on yourself.

Ultimately, you won’t gain self confidence with Sun square Ascendant until you break through and go after your goals. It isn’t an easy path, but following your inner ambition is the only way to get self-respect and feel truly confident in public. 

You probably won’t meet friends or partners who are truly right for you. There’s a lot of potential for shallow relationships with Sun square Ascendant. Others don’t appreciate you or put you down, but this will continue to happen until you let go of the past and focus on what’s good for you. It is only then that you will attract individuals who will lift you up.

With Sun square Ascendant, you are afraid that you will never grow into your full potential. The road ahead can feel really confusing. You can’t find a path to help people see who you really are.

The way through the difficulties of the Sun square Ascendant placement is to focus on your goals and beliefs rather than what others think of you. Action is really important here. You simply must do what feels right to you and your self-confidence will grow over time.

Keep in mind that you probably won’t ever be as charismatic as someone with Sun trine Ascendant might be. You do tend to get off on the wrong foot with others; they might even question your sincerity because they can feel that you’re not being your authentic self.

However, the goal with this placement isn’t to make others like you, but to have so many goals that feel right for you that you simply stop caring. Once you achieve this, you will appear much more authentic in public. Your mask will start to blend with your Sun Sign and others will see you as a mix of the two.

Venus-Pluto Aspects In The Natal Chart

Venus-Pluto Aspects In The Natal Chart

Venus-Pluto aspects are intense. In fact, these are some of the most difficult aspects to have in relationships.

We all crave intimacy, but people with Venus-Pluto aspects confuse power, control, or obsession with intimacy and love. It’s hard for them to figure out what is fulfilling versus what is painful. Sometimes, pleasure and pain are intrinsically linked.

Venus conjunct Pluto in the natal chart means that you are naturally intense in love. You experience a lot of instant attraction when you’re single and generally enter into karmic relationships.

You might feel like your relationships are unusually powerful. Venus conjunct Pluto is all about power and control. This can be a positive factor, but your partnerships also have the potential to end badly if control becomes the driving force.

Look to your Venus sign and learn about the qualities, but then realize that all of these attributes are modified by Pluto. With Venus conjunct Pluto, your Venus sign becomes more intense, passionate, and deep, but it can also be more jealous, possessive, or obsessive.

Venus conjunct Pluto indicates that it’s easy for you to fall into toxic relationships. In fact, it can be quite difficult for you to find a relationship with a balanced amount of power on each side.

You find it easy to attract partners and may not be single very often, unless by choice. However, you also attract partners who have a darker nature. You either control others or allow yourself to be controlled.

In life, not only in relationships, you are attracted to mystery and seduction. The darker side of things is intriguing because of Venus conjunct Pluto.

Venus conjunct Pluto can lead to destructive, toxic relationships if you have other difficult elements in your chart. The lower your self-esteem, the more likely you are to stay in a harmful partnership.

At the extremes, Venus conjunct Pluto means that you may become a victim of betrayal or abuse. This can be a truly difficult aspect, depending on the signs and house.

However, you’re also drawn to people with a dark side, including those with addictions, a painful childhood, trauma, mental illness, or abusive behaviors. How this plays out will depend on the sign and house that Venus conjunct Pluto is in.

In general, you are drawn to those who seem unlovable by the outside world. It is the power imbalance that fuels you, although you aren’t necessarily seeking power for yourself.

It’s hard for you to distinguish between pain and pleasure. You may chase pain because you think that it will bring you the intimacy you crave, then you feel let down when this believe is revealed to be false. 

Ultimately with Venus conjunct Pluto, you simply want intimacy and loyalty. These qualities are difficult for you to find because of your relationship methods. Most of your partnerships feel vaguely dark, intense, or obsessive, and you just don’t know how to turn a relationship into what you desire while maintaining the intensity.

You have transformative relationships, for good or for bad. To transmute Venus conjunct Pluto and use this aspect for its highest good, you must first develop a sense of self.

Once you have self-worth, you will start to attract partners who transform you in a positive way. In fact, Pluto conjunct Venus can be truly transformative like nothing other placement.

Eventually, you will transform yourself through relationships. Keep in mind that this takes a lot of work. You will need to continuously say no to relationships if you’re not getting what you deserve.

Venus conjunct Pluto means that you have the potential to transform yourself through love. This can be self-love as well as romantic.

Venus Trine Pluto

Venus trine Pluto is a much easier aspect than the conjunction, but it can also create a variety of issues. After all, almost no aspect with Pluto is truly easy.

With Venus trine Pluto, you are drawn to intense relationships naturally. You know when you feel it for someone and you’re all in. You probably experience a lot of love at first sight.

Around others, you appear powerful and confident about yourself. This creates a magnetic aura that attracts those who enjoy basking in the glow of power. People are naturally drawn to you.

You probably love the attention that you get because of this Venus trine Pluto placement. Even though it’s an easier placement, you can still go too far when you’re enjoying your natural power. You’d like to have the upper hand, when possible.

You aren’t superficial in love. Venus by itself can indicate superficiality, but Venus trine Pluto creates a deeper, more intense nature in relationships.

Unless you have other aspects that dilute it, Venus trine Pluto usually means that you’re very sexual. Most sexual experiences feel natural to you, and the dynamics of power and control don’t scare you.

The best part of Venus trine Pluto is that you’re naturally growing throughout your life. This mainly happens through being in relationships. You’re always questioning things, always digging deeper, and continuously figuring out what love means to you. This isn’t as painful as some of the other aspects, but is simply a natural part of your existence.

Venus trine Pluto is a lovely aspect because you reap all of the benefits of the transformative nature of Pluto without as much of the pain. You may still feel obsession or encounter control issues, but these problems are easier to work through.

Venus Sextile Pluto

With Venus sextile Pluto, you have the opportunity to transform yourself through relationships. Although you are naturally attracted to transformational relationships, whether they are happy or painful, you must seize these opportunities and do the work in order to morph into the highest version of yourself.

You probably feel quite intensely with Venus sextile Pluto. Love and relationships are really important to you. Your partnerships are never without a degree of intensity.

However, with the Venus sextile Pluto aspect, you can simply ignore these qualities if you wish. Your soul wants to transform through relationships, but whether or not this happens is up to you.

To properly utilize Venus sextile Pluto, you should first work on your inner being and find your sense of self, then begin to define what a relationship means to you and what you would like to gain from love.

Venus Opposition Pluto

With the Venus opposition Pluto aspect, you experience instant attraction. Your relationships are extremely intense right from the start.

Once you’re in a relationship, you then deal with manipulation and control. In fact, you typically feel powerless in relationships, so you must turn to manipulation to get what you need.

It’s easy with Venus opposition Pluto for you to get caught up in trying to make things “appear” a certain way. You may ignore what’s truly going on in the relationship.

Venus opposition Pluto means that you want an air of beauty, so you pretend that there is no darkness underneath. This is ultimately because you don’t respect yourself enough to set boundaries and stop putting up with the control or anger from your partner. You believe that the relationship appearing perfect is the best you can get.

Power struggles are common in your relationships if you have the Venus opposition Pluto aspect. You may feel that you have to give up your personal power in order to actually have a relationship. You respond with manipulation or passive-aggressive tactics because this is the only way you can regain a semblance of control.

You probably feel that others don’t actually love you. In order to feel something like love, you must coerce others to show appreciation. Love and power are confused in the Venus opposition Pluto relationship. You’re not sure if someone having power over you means that they love you, or if you love them.

With the Venus opposition Pluto aspect in your natal chart, you actually meet the darker side of yourself in relationships. This shadow self shows up in your partners, however it actually reflects what lives inside you. Relationships are a good way to work through your inner demons, but you may start to see your partner as a representative of you rather than a separate individual.

It can feel almost impossible to separate from a partner. This is because you begin to see them as an extension of you, so no matter how hard it gets, you feel that you would be losing a piece of yourself should the relationship end.

You simultaneously have a fear of being dissolved through relationships. With Venus opposition Pluto, you see your relationships as a reflection of yourself, so it’s easy to forget where you end and your partner begins. This can cause you to disrespect yourself in relationship.

It’s important that you learn to stop letting others manipulate you. You’re always at the risk of being taken advantage of. In extreme cases, this can result in physical or sexual violence, so it’s essential that you learn to set clear boundaries.

With Venus opposition Pluto, the most important lesson is to figure out that your partner is separate from you own core self. You must develop a stronger sense of self in order to see this.

The first step is to become less concerned with how you appear and what your relationship looks like. Focus more on what’s actually underneath. What is the relationship truly made of? What do you truly want out of love?

As you work on your inner child and sense of self, you will begin to answer these questions for yourself, instead of answering in a way that makes your relationship look ideal.

Venus Square Pluto

At its core, Venus square Pluto simply means that love hurts. This is a difficult aspect to have in your birth chart.

This doesn’t mean that it’s impossible to deal with. In fact, Venus square Pluto can be transmuted. It’s possible to have a truly beautiful relationship when you come out on the other side! This simply takes a lot of work.

You are attracted to “bad” types, whatever that means for you. This is because you mistake power and control for intimacy. It’s difficult for you to tell the difference between obsession and love.

Venus square Pluto means that you don’t know how to get your needs met in a relationship. You simply haven’t learned the skills that you need to adequately express yourself.

This Venus square Pluto aspect creates a feeling of being perpetually stuck. You are torn in between the sweetness of Venus and the fear and control of Pluto.

In a relationship, manipulation may be your defense mechanism of choice. You probably don’t feel secure in relationships very often. You may feel ashamed because you have basic needs. Instead of asking for what you need, you manipulate your partner to try and gain it. This doesn’t often work and is actually a method of self-sabotage.

You simply don’t know how to get your needs met; you may not even know what you need. It’s difficult for you to say what you mean or to even figure it out for yourself. Of course, this is where you must begin the Venus square Pluto work.

Vulnerability is difficult for you. You feel vulnerable almost all of the time in relationships, even though you also desire intense, deep emotions. You get extremely defensive at the first sign of a slight because it’s so difficult for you to reveal these parts of yourself.

With Venus square Pluto, you really just crave intimacy, but you don’t even know what this means. You were born without the basic skills to have a happy and successful relationship, so these are things you need to develop now.

Your relationships are black or white. Venus square Pluto means that you might love then hate, or swing back and forth quite rapidly. You can be controlling or paranoid with your partner. Sometimes these fears are warranted, based on the characters you attract, but it’s hard for you to be grounded in reality and figure out what’s true. You might even feel like your intuition is simply missing when it comes to relationships.

A lack of boundaries is one of the biggest issues with this Venus square Pluto placement. When you’re in a relationship, you don’t know how to differentiate between the feelings of your partner and your own emotions. You are either overly dependent or attract partners who must depend on you.

Venus square Pluto is all about fear. Your terror keeps you from truly going deep, so you manipulate others on a surface level to avoid looking at the things you’re afraid of. Although you desire close bonds, you also feel extremely vulnerable when things get too intimate. 

Typically, your relationships get quite heated. They can be full of anger, fighting, power struggles, control, and manipulation. You’re never quite satisfied with your relationships, but Venus square Pluto makes it hard to know what you do want. Both sex and love are used as weapons with Venus square Pluto. True intimacy is rare; you may not even know what it is.

You probably love forbidden things or go after forbidden partners, but this is only because you’re substituting the idea of taboo love for true intimacy. You might think that if your partner is obsessed with you then they love you, yet this is not the truth.

Venus square Pluto means that you are either controlling or controlled. You might obsess over your partner, or you find partners who are jealous and obsessive towards you. Sometimes, it’s a bit of both. You need a certain level of intensity in a relationship in order to feel anything, so you may actually think that obsession is good.

It is this very intensity that can bring about positive transformation. Your core self must be transformed through relationships. Fear must turn to love, but this takes a lot of growth. In order to do this work, you must actively be in relationships. This is the only way to bring about the intense transformation that Venus square Pluto demands.

You may fear introspection, but it is necessary to learn. Venus square Pluto takes a long time to transmute. You will have to figure things out one at a time, learning lesson after lesson in relationship. Don’t shy away from pain; instead, learn from it. Dive deep and do everything you can when something difficult happens to figure out how you feel and why.

Eventually, you can have extremely fulfilling relationships, even with Venus square Pluto. You will certainly know a lot more about yourself by the end! With the right partner, after doing the work, you can see into your partner’s soul and been seen for who you truly are.

With Venus square Pluto, you must learn to love yourself before you can learn to love others. You must also figure out how to be vulnerable. Once you have a sense of self-worth, you will find that vulnerability is much easier. Work on your core self and develop your own sense of self. You will then have your own mind and intuition as the basis of any relationship.

Moon-Saturn Aspects In The Synastry Chart

Moon-Saturn Aspects In The Synastry Chart

In astrology, Saturn is the serious, mature individual, while the Moon is the inner, emotional self. These two are virtual opposites, so in the synastry chart, Saturn-Moon aspects can be quite difficult.

However, these aspects are great for growth. If you see a Saturn-Moon aspect in your synastry chart with your partner, you’ll know that you have an opportunity to learn a lot from each other.

With any of these Saturn-Moon aspects, the Saturn person feels mature, serious, and reserved, while the Moon person can be over-emotional or childlike. It’s easy for the Saturn person to feel overwhelmed by the emotional nature of their partner, yet the Moon person can also feel emotionally oppressed.

Ultimately, these aspects are like relationship-glue. Even if both partners are unhappy, they’re often drawn to stay together. Saturn creates long-term relationships. However, the success of the relationship will depend on the emotional maturity of both people.

Any Moon-Saturn aspect sign can be used for good, but it takes work. If both people are emotionally immature, then even the Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect will feel difficult and painful. If both partners are emotionally mature, then even the square aspect can feel easy. These aspects depend quite a bit on where both people are in terms of managing their own emotions and needs.

Although these Moon-Saturn aspects are difficult and painful, they also help you deal with your issues in a relationship. If you have one of these aspects, then you can be sure that you will be pushed to learn and grow.

There are typically issues of dependency and security with these aspects. One or both people may feel a heavy sense of responsibility, or they may even act out parent-child roles.

Keep in mind that all of these Moon-Saturn aspect descriptions depend greatly on the signs of the planets. For example, a Capricorn moon sign will be able to deal with these aspects more easily because they aren’t too emotional. Their emotions won’t trigger Saturn as much.

However, a Cancer moon sign is someone who needs a lot of emotional support, so the lack of nurture from the Saturn partner will create more problems.

With any Moon-Saturn aspects, the Saturn person has the tendency to be cold or rigid. They may shut the Moon person down or withdraw when their emotional reactions feel too extreme. However, they can also bring structure to the Moon person and learn to stick up for themselves instead of retreating.

The Moon person has the tendency to be over-emotional, illogical, or even manipulative. They probably try to force the Saturn person to adhere to what they need emotionally instead of looking at the relationship as a partnership. Ideally, they will learn emotional balance, self-sufficiency, and how to better explain and obtain what they need emotionally. They can also learn how to balance their own emotional needs with those of their partner.

Moon Conjunct Saturn Synastry

The Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect indicates a serious, heavy bond. This relationship has a strong air of responsibility. These partners may also feel bound to each other in some way.

At times, the Moon person can feel limited with the Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect. They might intuitively know that they can’t express the full range of their moon sign, or that they must hide their emotions in some way.

This is because the Saturn person limits without even realizing it. The Moon person might feel constrained in some way, especially in the sign/house that this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect sits in.

Sometimes, the Moon person also feels the need to censor their feelings of dependency. They feel  that the Saturn person doesn’t want them to appear too dependent or needy.

However, the Moon person greatly desires emotional intimacy with this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect. They feel blocked from truly sharing their emotions in some way, whether this is because of external karmic reasons or because they know the Saturn person doesn’t wish for emotional closeness. The Moon person is probably scared of being “too much,” though they can’t help revealing their emotional nature at times.

Any relationship with this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can be serious and long-lasting. Sometimes, this aspect is the glue that holds a relationship together. The bond can be a bit painful, but it’s also strong and keeps both people coming back to each other.

Ultimately, this relationship can work for the better. The Saturn person can learn to be careful with the emotions of the Moon person. The Saturn individual can also help to give the Moon person direction in life.

The Moon person can learn healthy dependency and how to be with another person without becoming codependent. This is a painful journey for both people, but this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can create a great life-long learning opportunity.

This placement is all about balance. If you have this Moon conjunct Saturn synastry aspect and are the Moon individual, be careful not to censor your emotions too much. It’s essential that you share your true feelings without going overboard, or you will start to feel trapped.

Moon Trine Saturn Synastry

With this Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect, the Saturn person is probably a grounding force in the relationship. They can help direct the Moon person to stay on their path and to work for their goals. In the best case scenario, Saturn is a gentle guiding force.

The Moon person probably feels that the Saturn individual is a stable and secure fixture in their lives. This Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect is all about emotional stability. 

This Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect means that both partners may invest in each other emotionally. They take each other quite seriously, so there’s a lot of promise for a long-term relationship with this aspect.

In some sense, both partners are there for each other. The Saturn person is a constant for the Moon person; they can always rely on them. Sometimes, the Saturn person gives more to the Moon person than they receive back, but they probably don’t mind very much.

This Moon trine Saturn synastry aspect creates the glue of the relationship. It makes these partners want to stay together and work through their issues. The relationship could get boring or stale over time because it can become very routine.

Moon Sextile Saturn Synastry

With the Moon sextile Saturn synastry aspect, there is an opportunity for both people to develop healthy emotional maturity in the relationship. However, this doesn’t come totally naturally, and this couple may need to work for a fulfilling end result.

The Moon individual can help the Saturn person work through their karma. The specifics of this karma will depend on the sign and house of this person’s Saturn sign.

On the other hand, the Saturn person can help the Moon to mature emotionally. They bring the structure and stability that the Moon person desperately needs.

With this Moon sextile Saturn synastry aspect, the Moon person can appear emotionally immature compared to the Saturn person. However, this relationship is a lovely opportunity to teach each other things that both people need to mature and grow.

This Moon sextile Saturn aspect can also mean that there is an opportunity for both people to work through issues with their respective parents. Sometimes, the couple is actually acting out parental roles when they first meet. The relationship will bring up issues of dependency or security, but this couple can work through those problems if they work to tackle them.

Ideally, the Saturn person will bring structure to the Moon individual. They will stick up for themselves and find time to work on their own feelings instead of taking on the Moon person’s emotions, which gives the Moon person the opportunity to mature emotionally.

Moon Opposition Saturn Synastry

This Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect means that these individuals have opposite reactions to circumstances. The Saturn person might appear overly rigid while the Moon person seems too emotional. When things happen in life, each person simply cannot understand why the other reacts in the opposite way.

In the relationship, the Saturn person can be domineering while the Moon individual is overly emotional or even childish. The Moon person might try to find happiness in the Saturn person instead of within themselves.

Sometimes with this Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect, there is fear surrounding the stability of the relationship. One or both of these people might feel insecure or have a deep inner fear that the other will betray them.

Typically, the Moon person is afraid of being vulnerable or emotionally injured. The Saturn person fears losing control or getting stuck in an unstable relationship.

Both people with this Moon opposition Saturn synastry aspect may need a lot of reassurance in different ways. This relationship can quickly become emotionally draining, but this is because neither person is getting to the root of the problem and working on their own issues. Instead, they try to change the other.

The goal in this Moon opposition Saturn synastry relationship is for the Saturn person to learn how to work with others’ emotions instead of shutting them down. The Moon individual needs to find happiness within instead of clinging to the Saturn person in order to escape their own unhappiness.

Moon Square Saturn Synastry

With this Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, the Moon person usually feels limited by the Saturn person. The Moon person responds to situations in an emotional manner and may feel judged by the Saturn person when they have these knee-jerk reactions.

The Saturn person might see the Moon person as oversensitive or too defensive. They may feel that there’s little room to share their own feelings because the Moon person’s emotions are seen as more important. Ultimately, neither person feels totally comfortable opening up to each other.

This Moon square Saturn synastry aspect can be extreme with either person. For example, the Saturn individual could be extremely cold and controlling, or the Moon person could be incredibly oversensitive, manipulative, and illogical.

Sometimes, both people are at the extremes, although often one individual is more extreme than the other, depending on the placement, sign, and house of the Moon square Saturn synastry aspect. 

With this Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, the Saturn person must learn to work with the emotional nature of the Moon person. Although the Moon person isn’t always rational, they usually have a good reason for what they feel underneath. The Saturn person needs to dig to figure out the Moon person’s true motives.

On the other hand, the Moon person must learn that the Saturn person does need structure in place over time so that they know what to expect. It’s painful for them to be at the whims of the Moon individual’s emotions.

This Moon square Saturn synastry aspect has a lot to do with understanding. If it feels like both people are always on opposite pages then therapy can be helpful. Both parties have very different types of emotional expression, but they must work to understand how they each feel and express their feelings before there will be true contentment in the relationship.

Illusions can be stripped away with hard work. With the Moon square Saturn synastry aspect, both people don’t understand what lies at the core of the other. They must dig to learn the other person on a new level. It is uncomfortable work, but this aspect can push both towards intense emotional growth, if they’re willing to put the work in.

Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus In Libra In The Natal Chart

Venus in Libra is a placement that feel super natural. Libra is one of the rulers of Venus; both are about beauty, harmony, relationships, and all things aesthetically pleasing.

Generally, Venus shows how we act when it comes to money, our style, how we enjoy ourselves, our values, and how we attract others and behave in relationships.

Venus In Libra Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Libra shows up.

Money and Style:

Venus in Libra means that you probably don’t focus on money a lot. If you do, this will be because of other placements n your chart. Venus in Libra cares more about balance than about accumulating wealth.

For example, someone with Venus in Libra and Mars in Leo might care about money quite a bit, but this is because of their Mars sign rather than Venus.

Whether you dress fashionably or not, something about the way you appear feels put-together and non-threatening. You have your own unique sense of style that you never have to question.

In the area of the house that Venus in Libra is in, you’re elegant and graceful. You may even be charming. You know how to do things well without going overboard.

Anything tacky or overdone will be abhorrent to you. Grace is important in all things. You’re good at putting people at ease and your style probably reflects this.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy spending time with other people. Social interactions and stimulating conversations make you happy.

You may also enjoy art, music, poetry, writing, or culture. You have a keen mind and want to use it in some way. This can vary from person to person with Venus in Libra, but you usually need some interesting outlet or way to express yourself.

For example, one person with Venus in Libra might be into punk rock and participate in a band. Yet another may love learning, especially philosophy, and focus on a lot of reading and writing.

With Venus in Libra, you enjoy anything that feels harmonious and pleasant. In general, you don’t like discord.

You also like to please people. This will be especially evident in the area of the house that your Venus in Libra is in. It can make you happy to please others, especially the people you care about most.

Values:

You value being around other people. As a Venus in Libra person, you probably care a lot about your partnerships and relationships.

Because of this, you may go to great lengths to avoid fights. Peace is extremely important to you and is one of your core values. You’re good at balancing things in a group; you’re the person to notice when one member is unhappy.

You also care about fairness in all things, especially friendships and romance. Sometimes, this can be a bit at odds with your need for peace. Depending on the situation, you will either acquiesce to avoid fighting, or you will stand up for your beliefs to get justice.

These values will be especially evident in the house that your Venus is in.

Attraction:

With Venus in Libra, you attract others by appearing intelligent, well-mannered, and put-together in appearance. You’re also pretty witty and mentally sharp.

You have an interesting mind, but you know how to use your wit in a social way. Unlike other intellectual astrology signs, you aren’t removed from society. People are attracted to your keen sense of intellect. Your intellect is quite charming.

When you want to impress someone else, you will try to turn on the charm. You use a mix of kindness and intellect that’s very subtle. No one with Venus in Libra will want to be the loudest person in the room; you just want to be the most poised and interesting.

Sometimes, you may be a bit disingenuous when you’re flirting because you want to be liked. This can even happen in your platonic relationships.

With Venus in Libra, you’re good at “mirroring” other people and showing them what they want to see. You can easily conform to many situations, but this drains you because you must hide your true self. It also makes it difficult for other people to really get to know you.

You’re attracted to people who are aesthetically agreeable and nice. You don’t like anyone too aggressive, abrasive, or extreme. Anything pleasing is exactly what you want.

Romance, such as candles or flowers, may be important to you, but you also value good conversation and shared activities. You need a mental connection to really be into someone.

When you do meet someone you like, you’re all in right away. With Venus in Libra, you don’t like to be alone.

Relationships/Sex:

When you’re in a relationship as a Venus in Libra, you simply want fairness. You will treat the other person how you want to be treated. 

Sometimes, you can go overboard with your emphasis on fairness. Be careful that you don’t keep score. Try to let reciprocation come a bit more naturally.

You might get upset if you feel that you put a lot of effort into pleasing your partner and don’t get an equal amount of effort returned. Big blowouts aren’t your style (although this is influenced by your Mars) so you quietly build up resentment. Sometimes, this comes out sideways in a passive-aggressive manner to “settle the score.”

Venus in Libra means that you really want your relationships to work. You may have a fear of being alone, so you might gloss over the bad issues. You turn yourself into a martyr, but then feel turned off and emotionally distanced from your partner.

Because you aim to please in general, you might attract bullies. This can be in a romantic manner or platonically.

With Venus in Libra, you have a very polished manner in love. You avoid aggression and overly-emotional displays. This can sometimes make your partners feel like you’re not invested, but you show your commitment through actions. It’s easy for you to go overboard trying to please your partner in many small ways.

When it comes to communication, you always want tact. Anything too uncouth or abrasive will turn you off. The best style of communication for you is fair and balanced without talks too much emotion.

Sexually, you also enjoy the finer things. You might like the whole act to be beautiful rather than aggressive or primal. In fact, you probably don’t enjoy anything super messy, although this will depend a lot on your Mars placement.

Intellectual simulation is what gets you going initially. You simply must have a good mental bond with your partner in order to feel sexual. A little romance never hurts, too!

Generally with Venus in Libra, you treat your partners how you want to be treated. If you get this reciprocation back, then you’re happy as a clam. Problems only arise when you feel that you’re being treated unfairly but don’t stick up for yourself.

Venus In Libra: Best & Worst Qualities

With any placement, there are positive qualities as well as difficult traits.

  • Cogenial
  • Peaceful
  • Affectionate
  • Romantic
  • Poised
  • Refined
  • Intellectual
  • Social
  • Balanced
  • Harmonious
  • Diplomatic

Worst:

  • Non-Confrontational

  • Overly-Attached
  • Needy
  • Chameleon

Venus In Libra: Man Versus Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Libra (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Libra. These Libran qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

Venus In Libra Man

The Venus in Libra man is charming and charismatic when he wants to be. He may not always feel that he’s the most important person in the room, but he has a witty, intellectual appeal that is quiet yet strong.

He is attracted to beauty, grace, and to his “ideal woman.” Sometimes, this man might create an image of his ideal woman in his mind. He will be disappointed when he finds that she doesn’t actually exist.

Alternatively, when this man meets someone he may “beef up” her qualities in his mind. Again, he will be let down when he figures out that the woman in reality is much different than the picture in his head.

He might also get into relationships that are shallow, or he may attract superficial women. He could create an intellectual personality for his partner in his head because he likes the physical look of the woman in front of him.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man has a secret desire to be part of the “it” couple. This doesn’t always work out for him, but it can be a motivation for entering into a relationship.

The Venus in Libra man won’t be attracted to the most brash woman in the room. Coarseness, crudeness, and loudness are big turn-offs for him. 

Instead, he will look for someone smart and balanced. Although he is definitely attracted to looks (like any Libra placement), he also loves understated charm and simple but clean beauty. He actually wants his partner to feel beautiful rather than just appear like a trophy.

He is attracted to people who makes him feel balanced, romantically or platonically. When he feels off-kilter around someone, he will probably want to get away from them.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra man looks for balance. He will work really hard to please someone he loves, but he also wants to be treated fairly.  The Venus in Libra man will grow unhappy over time if he believes that he is giving too much. He will build up resentment towards his partner. 

This man can have some abandonment issues and a secret desire to complete himself through a relationship. This probably won’t be obvious on a conscious level, but this is usually why he must be in a relationship. He will give quite a bit in order to keep a relationship, yet he becomes unhappy in the long run.

The Venus in Libra man wants his relationships to be easy and peaceful. He has a tendency to lie in order to keep the peace.

This is when his values conflict. He wants peace, but he also wants fairness and balance. Sometimes, the Venus in Libra man just can’t figure out how to have both in a partnership.

The Venus in Libra man is really sensitive to the needs of his partner. He is a pleaser and can be a wonderful person to be in a relationship with. However, his partners need to be careful to notice if he is avoiding the truth or not speaking up when he needs something.

He has trouble telling the hard truths because he doesn’t want to upset anyone or to fight. Over time, this can cause serious problems. He will build up resentment towards his partner until he fights back in passive-aggressive ways or leaves the relationship altogether.

In general, the Venus in Libra man is a really lovely individual. He is intellectual, creative, and interesting. He’s a true gentleman – he would never leave someone in trouble and has a caring heart.

The goal for the Venus in Libra man is to learn to stick up for himself in assertive, constructive ways before resentment builds up within him.

Venus In Libra Woman

The Venus in Libra woman is super perceptive. She’s sensitive to the needs of others, to what others want to her, and to the sense of give and take in a relationship.

She works very hard to keep things balanced and to be what others want. She might adapt her personality to suit the nature of the people she’s with.

In fact, the Venus in Libra woman can be something of a chameleon. She’s very good at changing the way she talks, moves, and acts in order to make other people feel comfortable.

Secretly, the Venus in Libra woman wants to be liked. It’s extremely difficult and upsetting for her when someone actively dislikes her. She will feel afraid and alone.

When she’s just getting to know a potential partner, she is very graceful and intellectual. She’s good at noticing what her partner likes about her and adapting to fit the situation.

In a relationship, the Venus in Libra woman is very skilled at smoothing ruffled feathers. She is definitely the ideal woman to keep the peace.

Ultimately, she is afraid of losing her partner and being alone. The Venus in Libra woman needs a relationship more than any other Venus placement. She feels defective or even useless without a partner.

However, she treats her partner as she would like to treated. She supports her partner’s individuality and notices the small things about them. The Venus in Libra woman just wants the same treatment in return. She wants to be noticed, too. It can be extremely hurtful for her to be ignored; she will be crushed if her partner doesn’t reciprocate her efforts.

Sometimes, the Venus in Libra woman will give her personal power away in order to stay in a relationship. When she gives up a vital piece of herself, she is left feeling powerless and empty. If something does go wrong with a partner, she may feel that she’ll never be whole again.

She wants to be admired for her intelligence and inner value. The Venus in Libra woman doesn’t want to be treated like a trophy, even though she does value aesthetically pleasing beauty. Ultimately, she wants her partner to notice what’s inside of her.

Sexually, the Venus in Libra woman might be more excited by fantasy and romance than by actual sex. She easily detaches from the more realistic elements of lovemaking and focuses on the ideal, but she is disappointed in real life when things are messy or dirty.

Mars-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Mars-Sun Aspects In Synastry

In the synastry chart, aspects are just as important as the actual placements of planets. Aspects show how you relate to your partner and what issues you may encounter in your relationship. Mars-Sun aspects are all about your drive, motivation, and physical attraction.

Mars-Sun aspects will dictate how much you can “feel” each other’s physical presences. It also shows your compatibility in energy levels, time spent together, and sexual preferences.

However, keep in mind that other aspects also contribute to your hobbies and sexual compatibility as a couple. Mars-Sun aspects will definitely give you some insight into your relationship, but take these descriptions with a grain of salt. You have an entire chart that describes your relationships, not just this one aspect.

Sun Conjunct Mars Synastry:

With the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, there is a strong physical connection. The Mars person specifically feels sexually attracted to the Sun person, but there is definitely physical compatibility in general.

This can be an intense but volatile relationship. It’s a major aspect in the synastry chart that is important to delve into. With the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, both people probably get energy just from being around each other, but too much energy can be a bad thing.

Typically, the energy will build up and result in either explosive arguments or intense sexual relationships.

The Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect is highly charged. Both people know how to push each other’s buttons, yet they’re also physically attracted to each other.

In the Sun conjunct Mars synastry relationship, it’s easy for either person to get super defensive. Logic is hard to come by.

The Mars person in particular can get defensive if they feel that the Sun person is too judgmental or condescending.  The Mars individual can also feel like the Sun person is too direct or pushy. There is usually a battle of wills in this relationship. 

However, this Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect can be beneficial, too. Both partners know how to get each other moving. Even being around each other motivates them! This is a lovely aspect if you need to work or accomplish something together.

A lot of how this aspect manifests will depend on the sign that the conjunction is in. For example, the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect in Aries will be a lot more angry and explosive than the aspect in Cancer, which will be much more passive-aggressive and emotional.

Usually, there is a level of competition between the partners, but there is a strong attraction even through this competitive energy.

If you have the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect, you’re physically compatible with your partner and have similar energetic levels. You probably have similar ways of expressing yourselves sexually, although this is only one aspect of many placements when it comes to physical compatibility.

Ideally, both partners with the Sun conjunct Mars synastry aspect will help their partner work towards their goals and empower them to get moving and face obstacles. At their best, this pair will encourage each other to express themselves.

Work to express this aspect in a motivational or sexual way rather than through anger or aggression. The energy will build up and must come out somewhere, but it’s up to you to decide how this happens.

Sun Trine Mars Synastry:

With the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect, the timing of the relationship is especially fortuitous. Both people have a similar rhythm in life. Neither person wants more than the other can give, and these partners are generally on the same page.

There is probably a healthy competition between the partners with the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect that motivates these folks. They push each other to succeed but also know when to step back and let the other person have breathing room.

Both the Sun and the Mars person respect each other’s individuality. They don’t overstep when their partner is doing something important; they probably aren’t overly needy in these areas.

This Sun trine Mars synastry aspect indicates a mutually supportive, well-balanced relationship. Each partner may be motivated to do slightly different things, but they are able to respect each other’s interests. It just feels natural.

When it comes to hobbies and activities, the Sun trine Mars synastry aspect means that both partners are usually on the same wavelength. If one partner likes to go out to each a few times of week, the other partner probably feels the same. They’re in synch, for the most part.

If this is a romantic relationship, both partners are attracted to each other. The Mars person in particular is sexually attracted to the Sun person.

This couple is on the same page when it comes to their sex life, too. They probably have mutual likes/dislikes, or they can easily respect what the other person wants.

This Sun trine Mars synastry aspect usually means that both partners want physical touch and attention a similar amount.

They are comfortable expressing their sexual needs to each other without judgment. It’s an easy aspect to have in a relationship.

Ultimately, if you have this Sun trine Mars aspect, you are relaxed and in tune with your partner. You respond to each other’s needs automatically, whether these needs are physical or emotional. You have both affection and passion in the relationship.

Sun Sextile Mars Synastry:

With the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect, there is an opportunity to create an exciting and motivating relationship.

The Mars person is typically attracted to the Sun person’s strong personality. The Sun person probably has a lot of ambition and this intrigues the Mars person. 

While the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect means that there is an opportunity to develop a strong sexual spark, this might not happen immediately. The couple will need to communicate and work towards achieving a fulfilling sexual relationship.

There is also the opportunity to develop good timing and balance in the relationship. This Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect has a lot to do with balance.

At first, things might feel a bit off, but with a bit of communication and trial/error, the couple can learn to balance both of their needs. They must figure out what works for them as a couple specifically.

If you have the Sun sextile Mars aspect in synastry with your partner, you probably enjoy many activities together.

You can easily find hobbies or things to do that you both appreciate. You may also motivate each other and work well as a team when starting a new business venture.

There may be a bit of friendly competition with this aspect. Be careful that this remains healthy (as it certainly can be) and doesn’t turn too competitive or nasty. With the Sun sextile Mars synastry aspect, you must actively work to encourage each other.

However, you most likely have similar energy levels, making it easier to work together on just about anything.

Sun Opposition Mars Synastry:

The Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect is a strong indicator of sexual attraction. In the beginning of the relationship, these people were probably very attracted to each other physically.

However, as the relationship progresses, there can be many ego clashes in the relationship. These must be dealt with if the relationship is to survive.

Sun opposition Mars synastry denotes conflict and power struggles. Each partner may try to dominate the other or “win” in some way.

The timing in the relationship might feel off. Sometimes, this couple has totally different needs concerning timing. When one person wants space the other person needs attention, then this dynamic swaps.

The Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect means that these partners can have a passionate sexual relationship, but ego clashes can get in the way of this. Both partners often feel defensive, which may kill their attraction to each other.

There can also be sexual difficulties, especially with timing. When one partner wants physical touch, the other doesn’t, and vice-versa.

Their views, wants, and needs relating to sex might differ from each other. They probably don’t know how to communicate well in this area.

It’s difficult for this couple to express themselves appropriately. Both partners might feel that they just can’t exactly explain what they desire when they’re fighting or expressing their sexual needs.

There is the potential for a passionate relationship with the Sun opposition Mars synastry aspect, but there is also a lot of competition or challenges. However, this can actually push both partners to grow.

To succeed in this relationship, the couple needs to work hard to find balance and get both of their needs filled. They will also need a lot of communication surrounding their sex life in a way that doesn’t make the other feel defensive.

Luckily, all of these differences can be resolved over time with effective communication.

Sun Square Mars Synastry:

With the Sun square Mars synastry aspect, there is a lot of physical and sexual attraction, especially at first. Squares create energy, so there may actually be a stronger magnetic pull with this Sun square Mars synastry aspect than with others, like the sextile.

However, over time, both partners can start to feel annoyed by virtually everything about each other. They rub each other wrong and know how to get under each other’s skin. They may find themselves wondering what they saw in the other.

The Sun square Mars synastry aspect has a lot to do with ego. Both partners find their egos getting triggered often; they then react to the other in an impulsive or angry manner.

When arguing, the Sun person might come off as self-righteous or as a bit of a know-it-all. The Mars person will be both defensive and angry. They may initiate the “explosive” parts of the arguments because the Sun person just doesn’t let up.

The Sun square Mars synastry aspect can indicate competition between the couple. This can be healthy if the partners challenge each other, but it can quickly turn aggressive and combative if the levels of competition rise.

The timing in this relationship is always off. One person wants more than the other wants to give. This may be a constant dynamic, or this may switch back and forth between the partners. 

They also have different drives or motivators. One person might want to do active things, find new hobbies, go out, etc. while the other is content to stay home. They each feel like they must sacrifice a core part of themselves to stay in the relationship.

If you have this Sun square Mars synastry aspect in your relationship, it can feel like you’re just never on the same page. You always have to explain your actions to your partner because you just don’t understand each other. This can be quite a draining aspect in a long-term relationship.

However, it is possible for this relationship to work. Don’t forget: the Sun square Mars synastry aspect is full of passion. It isn’t a relationship that will die out easily, so there can be enough energy to accomplish just about anything.

Communication is essential in this relationship. You probably react to each other very defensively. You must learn how to express yourselves and your needs without attacking the other person. There is always a way to compromise without either person giving up their values or dreams, but you simply haven’t learned how to do this yet.

Midheaven In Aquarius, IC In Leo

Midheaven In Aquarius, IC In Leo

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. Today I’ll be discussing the Midheaven in Aquarius and the IC in Leo.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other!

What Is the Midheaven versus the IC?

The IC is generally traits from childhood that you learned to conceal. It describes your childhood in some way and indicates the role you were given by your family.

Typically, the IC describes the more painful qualities of your childhood and upbringing. These are qualities that hold you back, but it also shows a core part of yourself that you feel you must hide

The IC is often unconscious. You hide these pieces of yourself because you were taught, in some way, that they aren’t acceptable values to show to society. Some people may reveal these inner pieces in private, while others shun their core self altogether.

On the opposite axis, the Midheaven, or MC, is your outer, more public persona. The Midheaven is the “you” that you actively want to show.

Typically, the Midheaven shows qualities that you develop is a direct result of childhood conditioning. Whether your parents meant to teach you these qualities or not, they are things that you learned in order to survive.

The Midheaven is also what you want to achieve in the world and who you desire to be based on what you feel is important in life.

Ultimately, the Midheaven is your calling in the world. It’s what you feel compelled to accomplish in this lifetime, especially in terms of work or career. When you feel that you have truly completed your Midheaven, you are more likely to feel ultimate fulfillment. 

Both the IC and the Midheaven are integral parts of your personality. Neither are inherently good or bad. You will never “get rid” of either, but learning about these qualities can help you heal your shadow self and put your best foot forward in the world.

IC In Leo:

With your IC in Leo, you probably didn’t get enough one-on-one attention as a child. You probably had compete with either your siblings or parents to get noticed.

These IC in Leo qualities forced you to fight for attention or learn to be independent without care from others. You probably started to hide your feelings and learned not to ask for help. You figured out how to do things for yourself and deal with not being noticed.

Often with IC in Leo, you had another family member who always seemed to steal the spotlight. Look to the aspects to determine exactly who this was and how this manifested.

Sometimes with IC in Leo, you may have had a family who looked down on emotional outbursts. You were taught that excessive displays of emotions were bad; you may have even been strongly punished when you got too upset.

However, you were probably fun-loving as a child, too. You figured out how to create your own fun without getting in trouble or being too emotional.

Inside, you have this IC in Leo inner child who truly loves to have fun. This child may also want that attention that they didn’t receive in childhood, but you have pushed that deep down and learned to ignore this need.

You wanted more affection and warmth as a child. You had to share the limelight and didn’t get the amount of attention that you needed.

Your inner child is larger than life and quite energetic and playful, when they are allowed to come out. However, you may also have an inner part of yourself that can be a bit egotistical, simply because you want to be noticed.

When your inner child does come out, you might find yourself bragging or showing off your skills. You can come off as a little desperate because you want recognition, but this all comes from a real need that you have. No matter how much you hide your desire to be noticed, it doesn’t actually go away.

Additionally, your parents may have shown off a bit in childhood. Maybe they cared a lot about status in society or were a bit “braggy” themselves. You subconsciously learned how to brag by watching them, but you also reject this part of yourself. It’s a bit of a push-pull feeling.

With IC in Leo, you’re probably very loving. You have a large heart and are quite giving in your private life. Anyone who is lucky enough to glimpse this secret self will discover a generous, caring individual.

Ultimately, these inner feelings develop because you wanted more openness or affection but didn’t get it from your parents. You wanted more warmth. You had to share the “limelight” and didn’t get enough attention compared to your siblings or other people. You learned to ignore your feelings and might even now think that emotions are bad.

Midheaven In Aquarius:

With your IC in Leo, you learned to be independent and to pretend that you didn’t need attention. You began to focus on logic instead of your emotions as a way to cope.

Now with your Midheaven in Aquarius, you may come off as cool, aloof, or detached. Inside, you actually feel too emotional and needy, so you must shut off your emotions around others.

Sometimes, your IC in Leo emotions may bubble up. It’s easy for you to become playful or a bit egotistical when your Leo starts showing, but you’re careful to quickly shut that off. Most of the time, what others see is your Midheaven in Aquarius.

Your conversations with people are factual and logical. You can be a bit sharp or cold when you don’t believe something that others are saying, but this is because you never stray from the path of reason. Logic is what feels safe to you, but you also developed these skills when people discredited you for being too emotional.

Your inner child, or IC in Leo, wanted attention that they didn’t receive, but when you work with facts instead of feelings, you no longer feel so sad. Logic is what keeps you grounded and whole. It’s what saved you as a child.

With your Midheaven in Aquarius, you want to do something different in the world. You wish to create or contribute something unique instead of getting bogged down in the same type of work that everyone else does.

You want to be remembered for adding something to humanity, something that will take our people and culture to the next level. It’s important to you that you love your work and feel like you’re actively doing something. You probably don’t do well with busy work, unless it will advance your career in some way.

Ultimately with Midheaven in Aquarius, you are intellectual rather than emotional. You hit people with the facts and stay calm, cool, and collected. You have a rich inner world filled with playfulness, but you only share this side of yourself with those you trust completely.

The goal with Midheaven in Aquarius is to combine your love of logic, which can be quite helpful, with your need for attention. Learn to give yourself the attention that you didn’t receive. Work through your childhood in a logical fashion instead of ignoring it and you will find that your career jumps by leaps and bounds.

Venus-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Sun Aspects In Synastry

Venus-Sun aspects in synastry are super popular for a reason: they’re generally indicative of attraction, love, and long-term relationships.

If you have a beneficial Venus-Sun conjunction with your partner, you truly admire each other. You agree on values, likes, hobbies, and everything else that makes life fun!

Keep in mind when looking at aspects that they can either be helpful/positive or difficult. There is a whole range of aspects.

Positive aspects are fun and easy because the energy just flows naturally, but they don’t inspire much change. Difficult aspects are actually what force us to grow through conflict.

Any difficult aspect can be worked through and dealt with if both partners are willing. This is actually when we learn the most. Astrology just gives us the guidelines, but we still have free will and can make our own choices!

Sun Conjunct Venus Synastry:

With the Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect, both partners truly admire each other. The relationship can feel kind of romantic or grand; they are attracted to each other’s core values and characteristics.

The Sun person with this Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect probably admires the Venus person’s looks or mannerisms. The Venus person admires the Sun person’s core personality, charisma, and outer self.

This Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect isn’t necessarily super sexual. Instead, these partners just truly admire each others’ values and souls at a deep level. If you have this aspect with your partner, you probably notice and enjoy the little things about their personality.

It’s really easy to just feel content in a relationship with the Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect. Keep in mind that the relationship will especially take on qualities of the sign that this conjunction is in.

This aspect is a strong indicator of physical attraction between both parties. The Venus person might especially find the Sun person beautiful, which can give that individual a nice ego boost. However, the Sun person can start to feel suffocated, while the Venus person might feel like their emotional needs aren’t being met.

Any conjunction can have both positive and difficult qualities. This Sun conjunct Venus synastry aspect is no different. This is a really exquisite union with a lot of beautiful feelings for both parties, but it can also bring up insecurity or identity struggles.

Ultimately, admiration (in some manner, dependent on the sign) is a core part of this relationship. The goal is for both people to maintain their individuality while finding qualities they adore in the other person.

Sun Trine Venus Synastry:

With this Sun trine Venus synastry aspect, there is an easy flow of energy in the relationship. Both people are probably attracted to each other and get along quite well.

Sometimes, the Sun person might think the Venus person is especially beautiful or attractive, while the Venus person feels that the Sun person is charming, charismatic, and warm.

The Sun trine Venus synastry aspect means that both individuals admire and value each other’s qualities. They probably don’t have the exact same qualities, but they find complementary values in each other.

This is a good aspect for both platonic and romantic relationships. Although the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect traditionally shows up in charts of romantic partners, this energy can make for a lovely friendship based on shared values, too.

Both people admire each other’s charisma and grace, but they probably also support each other’s dreams and goals. This Sun trine Venus synastry aspect generally means that the relationship is equal and balanced, unless other aspects offset this harmony.

Sometimes, the Sun person can assume the leadership role in the relationship. This will be especially evident in the areas of the sign and house placements, but when this happens, Venus doesn’t feel overshadowed. Instead, these partners exist harmoniously, working in slightly different arenas.

They typically have a lot of common ground concerning hobbies or preferences, yet they aren’t exactly the same. People with the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect simply enjoy similar things. They like being in each other’s company because it’s always harmonious and easy.

However, the Sun trine Venus synastry aspect can actually be too easy. This is such a harmonious aspect that more difficult aspects in the synastry chart may feel worse than they truly are.

If you have this aspect, remember that it’s an extremely easy aspect. It’s okay and is completely normal if others feel much more difficult.

Sun Sextile Venus Synastry:

The Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect is another easy aspect, but it may not come as naturally. This aspect means that both partners see value in each other, but they may have to work a bit to truly understand what they each find significant.

With the Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect, there is an opportunity to build mutual admiration. Some of this will be natural as soon as this couple meets because they both have the desire to please each other.

However, they must work to keep things mutual and not descend into power struggles. The Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect can indicate that things may get off balance, if the partners allow it. 

This aspect means that both people have similar values and methods of self expression. The work is to focus on discovering new things about the other person and cultivating feelings of adoration that are both given and received.

The Venus person wants to be noticed and cared for while the Sun person might need an ego boost sometimes. With the Sun sextile Venus synastry aspect, work to provide your partner with what they need and you can cultivate a beautiful relationship based on mutual respect.

Sun Opposition Venus Synastry:

The Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect is always interesting because it has almost equal positive and negative elements.

In the beginning, the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect can create a “chase” in some way. Typically, both partners enjoy this, because they see the promise of something alluring at the end of the tunnel.

Alternatively, this can mean that there is an illicit or even scandalous nature to the relationship. I find that there’s generally something very exciting about the way that this relationship starts off; it may even give you a bit of a rush.

The Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect is found in a lot of long-term relationships. It isn’t necessarily bad but, over time, the Venus person can start to feel less-than-appreciated for what they do for the Sun individual.

Meanwhile, the Sun person can get annoyed with the Venus person. The Venus individual might appear stuck on superficial things rather than what the Sun person deems important.

This Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect may create a push-pull feeling. It’s easy to alternate between admiring each other and feeling used by each other.

Sometimes, there are incompatibility in values. The partners may have a different outlook on life altogether. It’s very hard to keep this relationship feeling balanced.

There is almost always a “push-pull” element to the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect. You may start to feel like whenever you seek your partner out, they withdraw, and vice versa.

If you have the Sun opposition Venus synastry aspect, be careful that you don’t start keeping score of every little thing. Work towards building mutual admiration rather than pitting yourself against your partner.

Sun Square Venus Synastry:

With this Sun square Venus synastry aspect, there is a lot of mutual admiration at first and plenty of natural attraction. Squares provide a lot of energy, so there may actually be more initial attraction in this relationship than in those with the sextile or trine.

Over time, the Venus person might start to feel unappreciated. It’s very common for them to work hard to please the Sun person, only for the Sun person not to notice.

The Venus person can start playing games, manipulating then appeasing, or acting passive-aggressively towards the Sun individual. These manipulations don’t typically work well, but the Venus person doesn’t know what else to do. This can be a painful relationship for both people.

Over time with the Sun square Venus synastry aspect, the Venus person can come to resent the Sun person, but they never air their grievances. They let their resentment build up inside them.

This is usually because the Venus person tries so hard to please the Sun person but gets little to nothing returned. This placement often means that the Venus person either is or feels used. They can also feel that the Sun person is too egotistical or selfish.

The Sun square Venus synastry aspect can mean that a lack of care and consideration for each other develops. This can become quite extreme; both partners might become extremely selfish in the relationship.

The partners lose the admiration that a relationship needs. They just don’t see anything to like about each other. The Sun square Venus synastry aspect can make the relationship seem like it holds a lot of potential in the beginning, only to fall short by miles.

Ultimately, this is the relationship where love turns to hate. An obligation may develop to keep the “tallies” equal, with both partners feeling forced to give to the other in order to receive. Sometimes this comes in the manner of money, while other times this refers to affection or time.

The Sun square Venus synastry aspect means that there may be significant differences in tastes or view of love. This aspect can be resolved, but it requires a lot of maturity and commitment on the parts of both partners.

Midheaven in Libra, IC in Aries

Midheaven in Libra, IC in Aries

The Midheaven (MC) and the Imum coeli (IC) are two opposite points in astrology that are calculated based on your place and time of birth. Today I’ll be discussing the Midheaven in Libra and the IC in Aries.

Keep in mind that the Midheaven and IC are always opposite signs, so you can’t have one without the other!

What Is the Midheaven versus the IC?

The IC is generally traits from childhood that you learned to conceal. It describes your childhood in some way and indicates the role you were given by your family.

Typically, the IC describes the more difficult qualities of your childhood. It is the negative traits that hold you back, but it also shows a core part of you that you hide deep down.

The IC is often subconscious. You shield these qualities because you were taught, in some way, that they aren’t acceptable things to show to society. You will only reveal these inner pieces of yourself in private.

On the opposite axis, the Midheaven, or MC, is your outer public persona. The Midheaven is your image that you actively want to show to the world.

Typically, the Midheaven qualities that you develop are a direct result of childhood conditioning. 

The Midheaven is also what you want to achieve in the world and who you desire to be based on the qualities you feel are important in life.

Ultimately, the Midheaven is your calling in the world. It’s what you feel compelled to accomplish in this lifetime, especially in terms of career or work.

When you feel that you have truly completed your Midheaven, you are more likely to experience true fulfillment.

Although most people think that the Midheaven represents your job, it actually represents that qualities that you’re likely to show at your job or in any “public” situation around others.

Learning about your IC and Midheaven can be useful because you can emphasize these qualities that you will now realize you possess. Some of them may be subconscious at first, but your Midheaven shows what skills you naturally developed due to your childhood that you can utilize.

Both the IC and the Midheaven are integral parts of your personality. Neither are inherently good or bad and both will most likely continue to exist as a dichotomy.

IC In Aries:

With your IC in Aries, as a child you were either left to fend for yourself, or you were forced into situations where you had to strive for something without assistance. Either way, you felt a bit abandoned.

Your parents somehow made you feel like you had to do something or act a certain way to survive. Your home life was probably pretty intense as a child.

Some people with IC in Aries were quite literally abandoned as children or lost their parents rather abruptly.

If you weren’t left to fend for yourself as a kid, then your parents probably made you feel that you had to stand out in order to be seen by them.

There may have been specific things you had to do to get love. You could not get attention without work.

You acquired survival skills at a young age with IC in Aries. You probably learned to move fast and react quickly in order to survive.

IC in Aries also means that you probably didn’t have a lot of nurture as a child. You had to take charge of your own life and make it on your own. You learned quite quickly how to be independent.

Sometimes, IC in Aries can also mean that anger was somehow involved in your childhood. You learned to suppress your own anger and to be careful of it. Even now, you push your anger down where no one can see it.

Midheaven In Libra:

When you were a child with your IC in Aries, you learned that if you didn’t play by the rules you wouldn’t get what you needed. It was simply a matter of survival.

You also intuited that you had to make other people happy in order to succeed.

Now, with your Midheaven in Libra, you’re probably very good at working with other people in a cool, calm, and collected manner. You learned how to cling to social norms as a survival tactic.

With your Midheaven in Libra, you figured out how to slow down and be patient. You can now analyze situations without showing a single emotion and use your charm to get what you want.

You also learned that you needed to plan instead of act. You couldn’t allow your emotions to run you, but you had to instead use logic and tactical knowledge.

Inside, you might still feel like an Aries. You may experience strong, uncontrollable emotions, or a sense of anger or rage. However, you have probably mastered the art of appearing unbothered on the outside.

You probably care quite a bit about your reputation with Midheaven in Libra. People see you as elegant, strong, rational, and logical.

Others probably enjoy speaking with you and feel confident that you will be able to work out a deal that’s good for both parties. You’re a great mediator and always find some sort of middle ground.

You’re a diplomatic leader, but you will also stand up for what you believe in, when necessary. 

With your Midheaven in Libra, you prosper in careers that deal with arts or justice. However, you’re good at any type of mediation or public work because you almost always fulfill the expectations of the public.

As a child, you learned that you needed to appeal to others in order to get what you want. You’re probably very good at figuring out how to get someone on your side. This may seem like fun and games to others, but it was how you survived.

You’re very good with words and phrases. You’re also skilled at speaking in a way where you can appeal to others without getting yourself into a pickle. 

At the end of the day, you want to be remembered as someone diplomatic, kind, and just with Midheaven in Libra. This is what will give you fulfillment.

You care quite a bit about how others perceive you, both because you need others to like you to survive and because you don’t want others to feel as you did in childhood.

You want to find a way to make everyone happy in any situation and be a bridge between different cultures or modes of thought.

Those who are close to you probably feel your rather aggressive IC in Aries nature brewing under the surface, but they understand that you must use your social graces in order to get what you need.

You’re a natural leader underneath because of your IC in Aries, but you must be careful that you don’t let too much of your Aries qualities show openly. The public is more receptive to you when you’re graceful and charming.

With your Midheaven in Libra, you can range from being slightly charming and a little seductive to being socially manipulative or head strong. There are many ways that Midheaven in Libra can manifest itself.

IC in Aries/Midheaven in Libra can be a difficult placement because you always need to be careful in social situations. You may feel that you’re constantly balancing your IC in Aries with your Midheaven in Libra and that you swing back and forth between the two.

However, these are simply the cards you have been dealt. You also gain a lot of skills with this placement.

One of your best qualities is the value that you put on equality. You also see worth in not abandoning others. You want friends and family to feel safe in a way that you didn’t as a child.

In some situations, you will always aim to fit in with your Midheaven in Libra. You feel much safer when others like you. As a child, you were rejected and learned that this was dangerous.

You’re a bit of a self starter when you’re working. You take action and know what you want, but you also go about this diplomatically.

At your best, you want to smooth the rough edges of the world and make it more fair and equitable for others.

Venus In The Houses

Venus In The Houses

Even though we all research our Venus signs first, Venus in the houses is actually pretty important.

Your Venus sign will show the qualities that you exhibit, but the house that your Venus is in will indicate where you tend to show these qualities.

For example, with Venus in the 10th house, you tend to show your most Venusian qualities at work or in public, while Venus in the 4th house means that you show these qualities most at home or in private.

How To Read Venus In The Houses

You should start with your Venus sign when you’re looking into your placement. However, the house will be important, too.

You Venus sign shows the qualities that you exhibit, but the house shows where these qualities will appear most often.

At worst, you can actually start to become narcissistic because of your need to be liked by others. However, this will need other elements and placements in the chart to support narcissism. 

You always want to avoid trouble. When challenged you may “play dumb” or react passive-aggressively. Venus in the 1st house always avoids outright confrontation.

In love, you seek all things classically romantic, including beauty, sensitivity, and softness. You’re probably aesthetically pleasing in some way and you also like to be surrounded by nice-looking people and things.

Venus In The 2nd House

It is how you express yourself that makes you attractive. Other people notice your light because of your communication skills, however those may manifest. The sign that Venus is in will give more information about how you communicate and express yourself.

However, you might also stretch the truth with Venus in the 3rd house. This isn’t always the case, but you should be careful to stick to the truth with this placement.

You’re very playful, but love can feel almost like a game. You love the game of love yet others may get hurt by this. You’re seductive with your wit, spark, and playfulness.

Make sure that you make your intentions known to your potential partners so they don’t get misled.

This Venus in the 4th house placement means that, above all, you value feeling cozy and safe. You love having a beautiful home that’s yours.

In fact, you may care quite a bit about the aesthetic of your home. You desire quality items and have an “eye” for the way you want things to look.

You do the thoughtful little things instead of the grand gestures. Venus in the 6th house is all about the day-to-day.

Venus In Capricorn Characteristics

Venus rules so many areas that the characteristics of your Venus sign can have a large impact on your entire life. Here are the main ways that Venus in Capricorn shows up.

Money and Style:

With Venus in Capricorn, you prefer classic styles over anything trendy. Older is best!

While Venus in Capricorn people can be materialistic or enjoy symbols of status sometimes, others care more about quality of items.

The typical Venus in Capricorn is known for being extremely materialistic, but I don’t feel that this is always the case. I find that a Venus in Capricorn individual is either materialistic or practical.

Most folks with Venus in Capricorn are really practical with possessions and money. It’s always a safe bet to let these people handle your finances. They typically don’t spend beyond their means unless other elements of the chart support this.

Pleasure:

With Venus in Capricorn, you aren’t a party animal by any means. You may be less “fun-loving” than others.

Much of this is because you’re distrustful of others, so it’s hard for you to open up and let loose.

Another element of your serious personality is your practicality. Venus in Capricorn is all about being down-to-earth and efficient; in fact, you may even find more pleasure in hard work than in a typical party atmosphere.

You have long term goals and are grounded and realistic. Most Venus in Capricorn folks steer clear of anything flashy.

However, with Venus in Capricorn, you do have an inner child “locked up.” When you’re super comfortable around someone, your inner child comes out and you can be quite silly and playful. This happens rarely and may be surprising to people when they first see it.

Values:

With Venus in Capricorn, you value structure and order. You believe in setting rules and then following them. You will especially value rules in the house that your Venus sits in.

Depending on the house that Venus is in, you might also value hard work. For example, with Venus in the 10th house, you value hard work and status, but with Venus in the 7th house, you value putting the work into relationships.

You probably place significance on things that sustain over time with Venus in Capricorn. You won’t go for the quick fix but instead value long term investments when it comes to money, people, your job, and more.

With materialistic items, you prefer older, quality pieces. You don’t like super trendy or new things but would rather have a historical item.

Venus in Capricorn usually means that you were born into a family with parents who adhered to a certain set of conduct rules. You were probably forced to behave a certain way, especially socially.

If you deviated as a child, you were made to feel guilty or bad. Vulnerabilities and affection were probably not priorities. Instead, you needed to follow the rules and maintain appearances.

Some families focused more on appearances while others were simply forced to follow a strict set of rules.

Now, you may still operate within this value system, however it will be important to develop your own set of values as you grow.

You won’t necessarily need to show these values to others, but it is still integral that you figure out what matters to you.

Attraction:

With Venus in Capricorn, you have a very practical view of attraction. You don’t get caught up in the happy “first feelings” of love but instead see the reality of the other person.

You notice red flags quite easily when someone is flashy but has no real substance. You’re attracted to the sterner stuff that’s underneath the pomp and circumstance.

Once you’re getting to know someone, you probably value the traditional roles of courtship. You’re like to go slow and wait before jumping into a relationship.

Sometimes, you might be attracted to someone with a respectable position, a good reputation, wealth, or fame. Other folks with Venus in Capricorn are captivated by potential partners with a sense of practicality and a good work ethic.

When you’re first getting to know someone, you keep a lot of your thoughts and emotions private. You may come off as cold or removed, but you tend to attract folks who enjoy this distance or see it as flirtatious.

Others might think that you’re unfeeling because you won’t give your heart away to someone who doesn’t measure up to your criteria. You move slow and are discerning.

With Venus in Capricorn, you’re more of a doer than a talker. When you’re attracted to someone, they will know from your actions.

You have a quiet confidence or security that attracts others. You can be a bit awkward initially, but you have a cool confidence underneath. Others are attracted to this esteem in you.

Relationships/Sex:

In a relationship, a Venus in Capricorn will be an extremely devoted mate. These folks aren’t always warm and fluffy but they will be there when you need them.

With Venus in Capricorn, you probably see relationships as a long-term investment, so you’re strict with your vetting process when you first meet someone.

Although you know that no one is perfect, you can be quite picky and will weigh the pros and cons of a potential partner carefully.

You tend to find confident partners with Venus in Capricorn. You want someone who can handle their own life; you don’t want to “save” a tragic victim.

If you do find yourself in a relationship with someone who is too needy, you will probably distance yourself slowly and grow more detached over time.

However, you certainly have a provider instinct with Venus in Capricorn. You’re steadfast and true. You find safety in practicality and all that is known.

Your reliability as a partner is attractive to others, but when you’re actually in a relationship, it takes you a long time to open up your heart.

With Venus in Capricorn, you show your emotions and your love through actions, not words. You aren’t the most flowery romantic speaker, but you will demonstrate your love over time in a relationship.

In bed, you can actually be a bit casual if you’re single and may have many partners over time, but once you commit to someone you’re loyal. You may be quite diligent about pleasing your partner and learning what they enjoy.

Venus In Capricorn: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Capricorn below and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman or someone with feminine energy, Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others.

When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Capricorn. These Capricorn qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man or someone with masculine energy, Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

In bed, he will probably display more of his Mars signs, but he will also have a touch of Venus. With Venus in Capricorn, this men will be practical and focused in bed. He won’t get caught up in romantic fantasies but will instead focus on the actual technique.

He may come across as unemotional, but his actions speak louder than his words. The Venus in Capricorn man wants actions instead of words from his partner, too.

The Venus In Capricorn Man:

The Venus in Capricorn man is interested in serious and responsible women.

He won’t be attracted to anyone too emotional or talkative. He will also steer clear of superficiality or unpredictability. He likes women who are down to earth and practical.

The Venus in Capricorn man wants a pragmatic woman who focuses on work first. Sometimes, he will want someone modest and old-fashioned, while other times he will prefer someone with status or business-sense. This will depend on the house and aspects.

When the Venus in Capricorn man first meets someone, he is attracted to a strong inner energy and quiet confidence. 

Because he desires someone so practical, he is willing to be quite patient in a relationship. The Venus in Capricorn man will stick it out through the hard times; he doesn’t run away easily.

He’s likely to stay loyal in a relationship, even if the relationship turns sour. He may be a bit slow to give his heart away, but once he does, he’s all in.

Because he takes so long to commit, he can also be really hurt in a relationship if it falls apart. 

The Venus In Capricorn Woman:

The Venus in Capricorn woman finds safety and comfort in what she knows. She doesn’t adapt to change quickly.

She comes across as cool, aloof, detached, or maybe even a bit snobby when she’s flirting. She isn’t fun and outgoing. Instead, her partners will be attracted to her emotionally removed vibe.

The Venus in Capricorn woman is very picky. She may get into relationships later in life or she might be unsatisfied with her earlier relationships. She hates immaturity more than anything.

In relationships, the Venus in Capricorn woman goes slow and steady. She is careful not to get hurt.

Once her defenses are down, the Venus in Capricorn woman will be warm and tender, but this may take quite a while.

She needs a lot of independence in a partnership. The Venus in Capricorn woman probably won’t be interested in partying and going out, but she does need room to have her own interests and space.

The Venus in Capricorn woman is very practical. Her idea of fun probably involves work in some way. She may have trouble keeping love interests around because of how practical and/or ambitious she is, unless her partners feel the same way.

She can be a bit old-fashioned, classy, or even a little prudish. Alternatively, sometimes the Venus in Capricorn woman is snobby and materialistic. This is less likely than the first scenario, but it is possible depending on the house and aspects to Venus.

If the Venus in Capricorn woman gets dumped, she will never show how she really feels. She is very good at putting on a blank face and hiding her hurt, but it can take her a long time to get over heartbreak internally.

In bed, the Venus in Capricorn woman can be a bit reserved until she feels totally comfortable. Some Venus in Capricorn women are prudes while others are less closed in actions, but are still a bit reserved, quiet, or even cold.

How To Master The Venus In Capricorn Energy

With Venus in Capricorn, you will need to work on integrating your emotions with your rules.

Learn that it’s OK to break the social conduct code once in a while. A good place to start is by examining your childhood rules and figuring out which ones you personally like and which you want to throw out.

Develop your own internal set of rules that is created by you, not others. Make sure your own set of rules works for you.

The work for any Venus in Capricorn person will be a lot of small steps. These folks need to figure out what they want because they’re so used to being told what to do.

The goal for the Venus in Capricorn person is to let the inner child out.

When upset, you tend to get melodramatic. You don’t mind kicking up a fuss if you’re bothered by something; Mars in the 5th house is all about the spotlight. When you’re angry, these qualities certainly come out.

Mars in the 5th house is all about the pursuit of pleasure. For some, this will mean drugs, partying, or socializing, while others will simply obsess over their newest hobby or source of enjoyment.

To figure out where you tend to pursue pleasure, look at the sign that your Mars in the 5th house sits in.

In a relationship, you feel most secure when you are admired. Luckily, with Mars in the 5th house, you’re likely to admire your partners back, as well.

Men with Mars in the 5th house will especially put quite a bit of effort into seduction because they are so like to admire their partners. Meanwhile, they want to be noticed for their own efforts, too.

Mars In The 6th House

If you have Mars in the 6th house, you’re a hard worker. You will get up and work every day without causing a fuss. The word drudgery isn’t in your vocabulary.

Because you put so much energy into what you do, you can feel defensive if someone criticizes your work.

With Mars in the 6th house, you expect your workers or team members to share the same amount of enthusiasm that you have, especially in the workplace.

If you feel that someone isn’t working as hard as you, it can cause a bit of an issue. You’re extremely disciplined naturally but expect the same from others.

Sometimes, you can be pushy or domineering when your team is trying to work. At your worst, you may even border on arrogant with Mars in the 6th house.

You want things done right. With Mars in the 6th house, you have no patience for sloppiness. Attention to detail is very important to you.

Because you have such strong opinions about work, you tend to work independently or to run your own business. You’re very good at the actual management of a business but may struggle with your people skills.

The problem lies in the fact that others might not be as perfectionistic. Everyone has strengths and weaknesses, but with Mars in the 6th house, you will have trouble adjusting your expectations. You want others to have the same strengths that you possess.

It can actually cause depression when you realize that others aren’t living up to your standards. Mars in the 6th house can be all or nothing, so it’s hard for you to climb out of your hole unless you see significant progress.

The goal with Mars in the 6th house is to learn that people will work much harder for you when they’re appreciated. Your impulse is to “help” people become better versions of themselves, but it can come across as criticism, though you’re just trying to help.

Instead with Mars in the 6th house, you should try to see the good in others, even if their qualities are different from your own. It’s common for those around you to feel ill-used or unappreciated, but this can be easily turned around with a few well-placed kind words.

In a relationship, you’re very good at maintaining the bond day to day. However, you can get easily turned off because of small, health-related details. Otherwise, you’re actually pretty sexual.

You may be a bit picky about specific things with your partner. Look to the sign that Mars in the 6th house is in to figure out exactly what qualities are important to you.

Mars In The 7th House

If you have Mars in the 7th house, you tend to be more assertive when you’re in a relationship or pursuing a relationship. 

You’re probably drawn to people who are more assertive than you. Depending on the sign that your Mars in the 7th house is in, you might even be drawn to slightly aggressive people.

You look for motivation and drive in someone else because you have trouble finding it in yourself. When you’re alone, you may feel lost or restless.

Generally, you have trouble finishing tasks with Mars in the 7th house. You probably work better on a team because they can keep you grounded and help you check all of the boxes. You have big ideas but don’t always see them through.

With Mars in the 7th house, you’re always looking for a partner who will push you and bring out your own assertive qualities.

In fact, Mars in the 7th house is all about a relationship. It’s probably hard for you to separate sex and love.

Mars In The 8th House

With Mars in the 8th house, you don’t like to be seen as vulnerable. You keep your inner self hidden deep down.

Even though you don’t want others to see your vulnerabilities, you’re very good at reading other people and can use that to your advantage. You may put quite a bit of energy into figuring things out about others.

Mars in the 8th house means that you want to know what’s going on behind the scenes at all times. You hate not knowing something and don’t like being fooled.

In fact, many people with Mars in the 8th house pride themselves on not being fooled, ever. They can be a bit intense about it.

Your drive and motivation is equally as intense. When you start something, you’re all in, and typically have an emotional connection to the outcome. You can become very depressed if things don’t go the way you hope.

With Mars in the 8th house, you demand absolute loyalty from everyone. Your drive goes towards figuring out secrets and knowing people in a deep way, so if you find out that someone has “pulled one over” on you, the relationship may end abruptly.

Mars in the 8th house also means that you can be a little possessive of loved ones. You get attached easily and are very intense in relationships.

When your trust is broken, you might hold a grudge forever. Breaking your trust creates such a deep emotional hurt that it’s very hard for you to recover.

Depending on the sign that Mars in the 8th house is in, you may be borderline controlling, although this is certainly not the case always. You’re simply an intense person in general, whether you’re at work, with a friend, or with a partner.

With Mars in the 8th house, you view sex as a vehicle of discovery. You want to connect with your partner on a deeper level through sex. Sometimes, because there are such emotional ties to the sexual act, you may find that physical attention becomes a compulsion, although this will of course depend on the sign and aspects.

You do allow your partner to see a deeper part of your personality during sex.

Mars in the 8th house means that you generally hide who you are (this is part of your drive), but sex is one of the places you can let your full depth show, which is why you can sometimes desire a lot of sex. It’s one of the only outlets available to a Mars in the 8th house person.

Mars In The 9th House

Mars in the 9th house makes you openminded and interesting. You love learning new things, trying different activities, or having a lively debate.

You’re also social, kind, and humorous. You may be relatively firm in your beliefs once you solidify them, but until then you’re investing in figuring it out. With Mars in the 9th house, you’re always very sincere in what you believe and won’t think something just because you are pressured into it.

You’re open-minded and fun, but you also can’t stand boredom. Your Mars sign will show how you need to stay stimulated.

For example, Mars in Sagittarius will mean that you need to be thinking about the big ideas, philosophy, religion, spirituality, sociology, etc. However, Mars in Aries will mean that you need to be physically active and refuse to just sit around for days at a time.

Generally, people with Mars in 9th house are fun to be around. They’re up for anything and are typically kind and well-received.

However, you may struggle with day-to-day life with Mars in the 9th house. It’s hard for you to descend into monotony. You don’t like the idea of responsibility, even if you force yourself to do it.

Your drive is sparked when you’re able to find the meaning in what you’re doing. Without a higher meaning, you feel as though you’re drifting aimlessly. Mars in the 9th house indicates that you need a point or reason to work hard.

When you can find that point or meaning, you will work incredibly hard. You’re not afraid of an uphill battle if it’s for a good reason.

In a relationship, you value fun and “in the moment” experiences. You may approach physical attraction and sex as a sport. Sex can be playful and exciting; you tend to like variety.

However, you may also be very attached to the higher meaning of your relationship. You need to feel like you’re in a relationship for a purpose or you will quickly drop off.

Mars In The 10th House

With Mars in the 10th house, you’re very serious and focused on being successful. This doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re business minded (although you may be), but simply that you care a lot about whatever it is you define as success.

Typically, your goal is to be the leader, not just another employee. You might not like being told what to do.

Mars in the 10th house is all about getting ahead. You might be so focused on reaching your destination that you don’t have much patience for others.

Hard work doesn’t phase you with Mars in the 10th house. You’re definitely not scared of a challenge! You will simply make a plan then execute it.

Even though you take your work life very seriously, you also take your personal life quite seriously. It’s important for you to create a stable home or family life.

With Mars in the 10th house, you demand loyalty and commitment from those you’re attached to. You will be responsible and reliable but you expect the same from others.

When someone doesn’t agree with you, it’s easy for you to cut them out and simply ignore them. You might come off as cold or calculating, but in reality you’re simply focused on achieving your objective due to your Mars in the 10th house.

You may not have the best people skills, unless you have other aspects in your chart that create sociable qualities. Specifically with Mars in the 10th house, your drive is to accomplish things, not to make friends, unless that will get you closer to your end goal.

Competition doesn’t scare you as long as you have the ability to make a plan and execute it. However, you will never compromise your beliefs or ideals to win.

With Mars in the 10th house, you may have an obsession with being practical. Anything that you perceive as frivolous feels absolutely useless to you. Typically, you are task-oriented, even in your personal life. You may not have much room for emotional people.

Sometimes, you can have a bit of a “superior air” about you. This can make it hard for you to have equal relationships with others. You want to be respected, but only by those you consider important; you can sometimes diminish those who you see as less than you or who don’t have quite as many accomplishments.

As you grow with Mars in the 10th house, you will learn to be more compromising and take other peoples’ feelings into consideration. This can feel like a waste of time for you because you have a one-track mind, but you will come to find that the benefits outweigh the negatives.

You certainly do have a need for others’ approval, but you can come off as mechanical. It might be difficult for you to form close attachments with others, even though this is something you would like deep down. Learning how to better relate to others will aid you on your journey.

With Mars in the 10th house, you have a lot of courage to act independently and to be a self-starter. Developing people skills and empathy will get you where you want to go much more quickly, however.

In relationships, with Mars in the 10th house you can be a bit uptight when it comes to both public displays of affection and private physical attachments. You will want to learn how to let go and be in the moment.

Alternatively, you can have a bit of a superiority complex and might even be a bit selfish when it comes to physical affection with your partner. It can be very hard for you to put yourself in your partner’s shoes, but this is what you will need to learn in order to have an equal and peaceful relationship.

Mars In The 11th House

With Mars in the 11th house, you try to think out of the box and try different methods to achieve what you want. The way that you fix issues seems unexpected to other people because your mind simply works different.

Your Mars in the 11th house certainly shines in social situations. You will especially notice the qualities of your specific Mars signs when you’re in large groups of friends.

A large part of your drive is related to making friends. You feel very strongly that you must have a social circle surrounding you, and the way that you make friends will be based on the sign your Mars is in.

For example, someone with Mars in the 11th house in Scorpio will try to make friends by becoming attached rather quickly and creating deep, intense relationships. However, a person with Mars in the 11th house in Gemini would much rather have large group of acquaintances who they can have intellectual conversations with.

Generally, your drive will be tied to other people in some way. It’s probably hard for you to get something done unless it ties to other people.

For example, with Mars in the 11th house, you might struggle to accomplish a task unless you know that others will see it and think highly of you for it. Alternatively, you push forward with tasks to protect your family or group of friends, but might have difficulty doing something just for a career advancement with no other benefits.

Some people with Mars in the 11th house desire to be the center of a social circle. Other individuals want to be accepted or simply surrounded by people. 

With Mars in the 11th house, you might be aggressive or outspoken socially or maybe you’re just the life of the party. Again, much of this will depend on your specific Mars sign; the sign your Mars is in is extremely important with Mars in the 11th house.

I do find that almost everyone with Mars in the 11th house is a bit competitive with other people. This isn’t always a bad thing and can actually motivate you to work harder or faster.

Sexually, you love novelty. With Mars in the 11th house, you can actually be a bit detached, but you do enjoy having sex. You can even be a bit freaky. Your partner might feel like you love the idea of something new more than being with them, especially if your partner has more water sign planets.

Mars In The 12th House

The 12th house is the area of the subconscious mind, dreams, past life memories, and emotions that we don’t want to recognize. It’s the place where we push down those big scary things to try and forget.

Because the 12th house is typically subconscious or unconscious, it can be hard to figure out exactly how Mars, the planet of action and drive, would fit.

With Mars in the 12th house, your motivation, drive, anger, and other Mars-related qualities are pushed down into the subconscious. It will take active work to make them fully conscious.

If you have Mars in the 12th house, you probably struggled to assert yourself in a natural way when you were young. You couldn’t openly express what you wanted and definitely couldn’t go after your desires.

Most often, I find that people with Mars in the 12th house felt caught between helping others and doing what was truly right for them, especially in childhood. This can apply to their parents if one or both of their parents expected the child to serve the parent in some way or it can apply to other caretakers.

Now, with Mars in the 12th house, you may still struggle between doing what you are told is “right” and doing what’s actually right for you. It may be very difficult for you to be assertive.

Sometimes, children with Mars in the 12th house are lucky enough to have parents who see these traits and help them learn how to be more assertive. This is rare but it does happen.

More likely, children with Mars in the 12th house had parents who either didn’t see that they needed help with assertiveness or who actually abused these qualities in their children for their own gain.

With Mars in the 12th house, you need to learn to put yourself and your own interests first. You may have a vague sense of guilt or existential doom that follows you around, so you try to help others to assuage these feelings, but it doesn’t work because these negative beliefs were created from false lessons that you learned in childhood.

You might feel defeated when you have just started a project. It’s easier for you to quit than it is to see it through. Mars is related to drive, so it can be difficult for you to really access your internal motivation with Mars in the 12th house.

It might feel like any efforts to be seen or heard don’t work, so you might as well not even try. You don’t have confidence that you deserve what you want, so you give to other people instead of asking for what you need.

As you probably know by now if you have Mars in the 12th house, giving to others never really fixes the difficult emotions rolling around inside of you. Although you don’t show it, your subconscious mind always knows what you want deep down. You never really truly forget what you authentically desire, even though you don’t express it.

You tend to do things for others or for the “greater good,” even if doing these things conflicts with your own inner voice.

For example, you may join the army for your country even if doing so contradicts what you need. You may work at a job that you hate because you feel that you should. Even on a smaller scale, you probably run to the rescue of people who don’t always reciprocate, but you will simply feel too guilty if you ignore them so you must help.

Of course, this will manifest differently for every person. Not every example in this description will apply to you.

The crux of the matter is that, with Mars in the 12th house, you end up fighting others’ battles instead of your own. You feel constantly torn between yourself and others and have a persistent, nagging sense of guilt that follows you around. In some way, you self-sabotage because you can’t handle all the negative feelings brewing in your subconscious mind.

With Mars in the 12th house, you may also have difficulty expressing your anger in a healthy manner. You repressed your anger during childhood because you were taught by someone that it wasn’t OK to show anger at all.

You might also be afraid of your own anger. There is so much of it brewing that you feel once you begin to get angry, you’ll never be able to stop. 

With Mars in the 12th house, your anger can be displaced. You may get angry at someone who doesn’t deserve it or blow up over something inconsequential. The anger will show up where it doesn’t belong because you are like a pressure cooker and need to release it somehow.

When you feel overwhelmed, you may be a bit of an escapist, turning to drugs, alcohol, sex, or even experiences that give you a “high.” You’re inclined to jump ship and run away when your emotions begin flooding you. It’s common for people with Mars in the 12th house to think: “What’s the point?”

Becoming assertive will be a learned skill for you. It’s not something that comes naturally, but learning to assert yourself will make you feel much more peaceful inside. It will also help to dispel some of the built-up anger you feel.

In a relationship, you may be drawn to those who either are or appear slightly unattainable. With Mars in the 12th house, you can also be attracted to the idea of someone rather than the reality.

Sexually, you may have some issues. You are drawn towards the unattainable person, but when you’re suddenly with someone who actually is attainable, you don’t know how to unlock your emotions and be vulnerable. You can come off as closed-off or detached.

This is simply because you don’t access your emotions on your own, so until you learn more about your subconscious mind, you won’t be able to access those feelings with someone else (which is even more terrifying).

When you’re actually in a relationship, you have trouble asking for what you want and need. In fact, you probably feel guilty for even having needs, but are simultaneously angry when you feel like a doormat.

Mars in the 12th house is all about learning how to handle your anger and express your needs in a healthy way, instead of stuffing your thoughts down or blowing up. Luckily, it is quite possible for any individual with Mars in the 12th house to learn to be assertive.

This isn’t something that comes naturally. Books, research, therapy, and practical experience can all help you with Mars in the 12th house to express yourself in a positive, constructive way. Your tendency will be to revert to your previous methods when you’re afraid, but you will overcome this with time.

Relationships/Sex:

With Venus in Leo, you need reassurance and an open heart from your partner at all times. Impersonal behavior is scary to you because you sense your partner pulling away.

They need reassurance quite often (although not constantly). With Venus in Leo, you really just want to be noticed by your partner. If you feel seen and cherished then you will be at peace in a relationship.

It can be very difficult for you to separate love and sex. Sure, you might have casual sex, but in a relationship you keep the two intertwined and can’t see one without the other.

For a Venus in Leo individual, actions and physical expressions of love are best. Words are good, but these folks won’t believe them until they see the actions behind the words.

It’s hard for them to let go of these hurts. While they don’t exactly hold a grudge, they will simply feel extremely sensitive about a topic, even years later.

At the end of the day, the Venus in Leo person just wants to feel wanted. They will give this back in droves. They enjoy the “lovey” part of a relationship and never want this to end.

Venus in Leo people take their relationships very seriously. Romantic relationships and the outcomes of their relationships are simply a reflection of who they are because they live from the heart.

Venus In Leo: Man vs. Woman

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it. Basically, Venus shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Venus in Leo (below) and choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, in a woman (or someone with feminine energy), Venus will show how the person acts and what vibes they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Venus in Leo. These Leo qualities will show up directly in the personality.

In a man (or someone with masculine energy), Venus will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Mars sign, but their Venus sign dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

As we evolve and change and the gender lines blur, these distinctions become less absolute. For example, I find that most women will show a lot of the qualities of their Venus when they’re flirting, but a few of their Mars qualities will bleed through also.

It’s important to learn about both Venus and Mars. Each person has a unique combination of both qualities, although this combination may be swayed slightly depending on the person’s gender.

Lastly, a man who is ultra-comfortable with his sexuality will display many more of his Venus qualities, while a man who struggles with his sexuality probably won’t “own” these Venusian qualities, so he will instead look for them in a female partner.

The Venus In Leo Man:

The typical Venus in Leo man is super confident. He might be the life of the party socially. In a group, he won’t analyze things too deeply but will simply act on his instincts, which are usually correct.

This guy likes to be the main character; this comes to him naturally. He is playful and fun to be around, so people flock to him. He’s a natural socializer. If you’re hosting a party, the Venus in Leo man is a great guest to have around!

Romantically, the Venus in Leo man leans towards powerful partners. He is attracted to confidence and will want the most self-assured partner in the room.

While this man sometimes likes outgoing partners, he is generally attracted to the person who “runs” the group, whether they’re outgoing or introverted. He wants the most “important” person. He cares quite a bit about energetic status.

At the same time, the Venus in Leo man is also attracted to beauty. He enjoys a pretty face, nice clothes, and fine jewelry, but he is first attracted to confidence. He won’t be interested in beauty if it isn’t accompanied by an inner confidence. 

The Venus in Leo man is happy to shower his partner with praise and affection when he is into the relationship. He always expect the same back. This man likes to be pampered by his partner and needs to know that he is wanted.

The Venus in Leo man is likely to take things personally, especially if his partner criticizes him. He is rather fragile when he’s emotionally invested and needs to be treated delicately when his feelings are involved.

He can be a bit intense once he is committed to a relationship. It’s hard for him to avoid jealousy, but he also loves romance. He is fun loving and craves variety; this is the guy who will enjoy entertaining dates and nights out.

Occasionally, the Venus in Leo man can be outshined by his partner once he’s actually in a relationship, especially if his partner embodies many Leo qualities. This is not always the case and depends on the house and aspect.

The Venus In Leo Woman:

The Venus in Leo woman has a magnetic personality that “catches” people. Others seem to gravitate towards her. There might not be anything inherently special about the Venus in Leo woman; she simply has a magnetic energy.

Even if the Venus in Leo woman isn’t the loudest, she manages to grab attention in some way. She might do this unintentionally or intentionally. 

The Venus in Leo woman wants a grand, romantic love story when she first means someone. She is constantly looking for an epic love, even if this desire is subconscious.

She will try to impress potential partners with her power. She simply uses her gravitational energy a bit more around them and often ends up at the center of things.

Sometimes, potential partners are also captivated by her creative energy, although this will depend on the placement and aspects. She can easily form partnerships that are based around her creative endeavors, hobbies, or job.

In a relationship, the Venus in Leo woman is very loyal, but she also wants to be shown that her partner values her in return. Her biggest fear is indifference.

If you’re with a Venus in Leo woman, remember to bring her small trinkets after a trip away or little gifts here and there to show that you remember her. She doesn’t need anything super expensive but she does want things that come from the heart.

In return, the Venus in Leo woman is generous with her partners, too. She will shower them with gifts and love without hesitation. 

While the Venus in Leo woman can be a bit jealous at times, she might try to hard this or avoid acting on these feelings in public. Her partners are more likely to notice her bossiness, although the Venus in Leo woman won’t even realize she’s doing it because she’s focused on her own things.

In bed, the Venus in Leo woman is playful and passionate. It’s really important to her that the spark is kept alive. Again, her biggest fear is indifference. She would rather be playing or fighting instead of just avoiding each other. She wants to know that her partner cares for her in some way.

Ultimately, others can’t help but enjoy being around the Venus in Leo woman. She has a super infectious energy that leaks out to everyone around her. She can singlehandedly lift the spirits of any room.

How To Master The Venus In Leo Energy

Venus in Leo people speak and work from the heart. This can be really beneficial because they have a lot of love to give, but it can also mean that they can’t separate from their emotions.

The goal is for Venus in Leo folks to work on thinking things through before they act with logic and discernment. They need to sit down, make a list, and figure out what’s really going on with their feelings.

It is easy for those with Venus in Leo to lash out when they feel hurt, but a bit of self-therapy can go a long way and may save many of their relationships. 

If you have Venus in Leo, work on yourself when you feel hurt instead of trying to change others. Once you know your own feelings and can explain them without attacking the other person then your relationships will be much improved.

All About Mars in Pisces In The Birth Chart

All About Mars in Pisces In The Birth Chart

Mars is known for being the planet of drive, ambition, anger, and passion, but Mars in Pisces is a bit of an enigma. Pisces is generally peaceful and emotional while Mars is active and aggressive.

How, then, do these qualities fit together?

Mars in Pisces is known as the “peaceful warrior.” Although Mars in Pisces people can be extremely driven, they’re also emotional and fantastical. They ride the waves of emotion and ambition as they come and don’t fret when they’re just not feeling it.

Mars in Pisces Characteristics

The main characteristics that the planet Mars shows are one’s drive and ambition, one’s temper, how one pushes through career/conducts themselves in the workplace, and how someone acts in a romantic relationship.

Drive

With Mars in Pisces, you might sometimes be unsure about what you want. Life may happen to you because you struggle to control what’s happening.

The Mars in Pisces drive is always tied to emotion. If you don’t know what you want then you have no strong feelings either way. Your moods change often so your drive is likely to change, too.

You have bursts of energy tied to emotion that are coupled with periods of inaction. With Mars in Pisces, you’re often moody, so your drive is completely tied to your frame of mind and changes quite a bit.

Practicality will certainly kill your drive. Because you thrive on emotions and fantasies, being forced to be practical hurts your motivation.

Daily life can feel very difficult for you. It’s hard for you to “just do it” unless you’re in the right emotional space. Others may struggle to understand this, but it’s simply the way you’re wired with Mars in Pisces.

Many of your emotions are unconscious so it’s nearly impossible for you to control them. This also means that you don’t have much control over your drive and motivation with Mars in Pisces. Intellectual reasoning won’t help you; something must personally and emotionally tie you to a project in order to keep you engaged.

You tend to work hard for your idealized picture of hold things should be. While you have grand ideas, your mood might shift before you’re able to make much progress.

If you can hold onto a mood then you will work extremely diligently to achieve what you want because you’re so tied to it unconsciously.

At the end of the day with Mars in Pisces, you are a big dreamer and will always fight for your dreams. No dream is too big! When you’re devoted, you will see something through to the end, no matter the cost.

Temper

With Mars in Pisces, your moods can be unpredictable and intense. You quickly build up energy because you feel so acutely. This energy must be released in some way (by journaling, expressing yourself creatively, working out, etc.) or it will manifest as an outburst.

When you get angry, you probably feel a bit guilty about it. You might release a quick burst of anger on someone else but then feel immediately remorseful. You can also be passive aggressive and unpredictable.

Alternatively with Mars in Pisces, you suppress your anger and get lost in your fantasies to cope. This type of anger will often manifest physically as disease or a vague sickness that’s undiagnosable. 

While those with Mars in Pisces don’t outwardly get angry very often like an Aries might, they can have a lot of difficulty controlling their emotions.

They are likely to have emotional outbursts that are unrelated to the root cause of the issue simply because they have build up so much anger, like a pressure-cooker. Mars in Pisces folks can be a bit melodramatic.

These outbursts might be uncontrollable and sporadic. They might make no logical sense to other people, but this is because the emotions simply have to go somewhere, so these people will get upset at the next available chance.

Mars in Pisces folks can have some personally painful emotional ups and downs. There is no controlling their emotions. They just need to ride them out before they can reset and move on.

Career

With Mars in Pisces, you probably won’t step on anyone to make it to the top. You’re not competitive with anyone except yourself.

You will typically be successful when you feel emotionally tied to a career. For example, someone with Mars in Pisces could be an amazing athlete, but this is because they feel so passionately about the sport. They simply can’t separate emotions from actions.

Sometimes, it is difficult for people with Mars in Pisces to hold a job because their moods are so unpredictable, but much of this will depend on the rest of their chart and how directly involved Mars is in their career.

Those with Mars in Pisces can make great leaders or advocates when they believe strongly in a cause. They do their best work when they are emotionally tied to their job and they will stop at nothing to achieve what they desire.

Attraction

With Mars in Pisces, you are attracted to your own fantasies or projections of people instead of who they really are. It’s hard for you to see the actual individual right in front of you because you’re looking at your own picture of them in your head.

You’re also attracted to how you feel around someone. If someone makes you feel happy or “high” emotionally, you’re more likely to spend time around them.

Sometimes, you might be attracted to imbalance in relationships. You gravitate towards the needy or the underdogs because imbalance intrigues you.

With Mars in Pisces, you probably love the rush of dopamine you get when you first meet someone. Pisces is all about the “first date butterflies.”  You want to live in your fantasies, but this is much easier to do when you first meet someone than it is in a long-term relationship.

Because your attraction is so specific, you can be intrigued by someone one moment and gone the next. It might be confusing for others, but your mind changes according to your moods and fantasies, so there is no way for the other person to really figure you out.

When you’re acting on your attraction, you aren’t forceful. You simply put out a subtle shift in your energy that others can sense.

Romance/Sex

In a relationship, you might be a bit like a chameleon with Mars in Pisces. Sometimes you can be outgoing and bubbly, while other times you’re moody and withdrawn. You have no clear baseline.

Many people with Mars in Pisces end up in relationships that are unbalanced in some way, whether this is due to money, age, or simply an unequal energy (with one partner being much more powerful, controlling, loud, etc.).

You’re very sensitive and you are easily hurt. However, you also forgive easily, even if your partner has done something that feels completely unforgivable. A day later, all is forgotten.

You may be very passive or even a little detached, but this is only because you’re invested in your own daydream. When you’re caught up in a new idea or fantasy, you’re all in, and might not have time for your partner.

You’re loyal when you’re feeling romantic. In fact, you won’t be able to think of anything but your partner with Mars in Pisces. If your fantasy changes, then you’re prone to fickleness. It’s difficult for people with Mars in Pisces to stay invested over the long haul.

With Mars in Pisces, you have a strong need for love.  Sexually, you’re turned on by romance, secrecy, privacy, and emotional power imbalances. It’s almost impossible for you to separate sex and love.

Sometimes, you enjoy the idea of the chase. You can easily project your idea of the other person (rather than who they really are) and the chase gives you time to do this.

Reality is actually a bit of a turn-off for you; sex that is all about fantasy and romance is right up your alley. You have to be in the right mood to want anything physical; once you’re out of the mood then there’s no recapturing it.

The goal is for people with Mars in Pisces to figure out a balance between living in a fantasy world (which they always need to some extent) and seeing reality. Ideally, they will do a bit of self work and learn how to discern what’s true and what’s false without giving up the romantic aura that they crave.

Mars in Pisces: Worst and Best Qualities

Every placement has both good and bad qualities. Mars in Pisces is no different!

Keep in mind that, with Mars in Pisces, you won’t necessarily have all of these qualities.

These qualities are possibilities, but the qualities that you actually embody will depend on the rest of your chart as well as the house and aspects of Mars.

Most people with Mars in Pisces show about half of these qualities (a mix of positive and negative traits) based on their individual birth charts.

Best:

  • Sensitive
  • Romantic
  • Emotional
  • Devoted
  • Supportive
  • Gentle
  • Easygoing
  • Appreciative
  • Sacrificing
  • Etherial
  • Fantastical
  • Creative

Worst:

  • Unsure
  • Vulnerable
  • Stagnant
  • Cowardly
  • Escapist
  • Fickle
  • Temperamental
  • Delusional

Mars in Pisces: Male versus Female

Mars and Venus will showcase different qualities for men and women depending on how they self-identify.

Generally, in a man, Mars will show how he acts to attract, whether consciously or subconsciously, and Venus will show what kind of qualities he is attracted to.

In a woman, Mars will show what kind of qualities she is attracted to, while Venus will show how she acts to attract.

Feel free to choose the label that works best for you in this context (being attracted to another person’s energy).

For example, sometimes a gay man will identify with the male archetype because he tends to be attracted to feminine qualities in other men, while other times a gay man will identify with the female archetype of his Mars because he is attracted the masculine qualities that his Mars gives off.

These archetypes aren’t used by everyone and definitely aren’t absolute. I’m a straight woman, but I find that sometimes the vibes from my Mars show up in myself when I’m flirting. Traditionally, only my Venus should show, but clearly the tradition rules are just guidelines that aren’t always exact.

Take this all with a grain of salt: this is the traditional way of doing it. I don’t think it’s 100% accurate, but in my experience, there’s a good 80% of truth in these archetypes for the average person.

NOTE: if you’re a member of the LGBTQ+ community then you will want to figure out which energy you identify with more. It’s a personal journey to figure out how you use your Mars versus Venus, or you may have some combination of both (as most of us do regardless of our sexual orientations). Read through the descriptions and see what fits for you.

It’s ok if you aren’t totally sure and is fine to take pieces of both. There is no set in stone here – these are just guidelines to help you figure out your chart!

The Mars In Pisces Man:

The Mars in Pisces man probably won’t make the first move or initiate unless he’s really in the mood to do so. He has many mood swings, so the initial meeting will depend on where in his mood cycle he is.

Most likely, he will slowly get closer to someone he likes and try to build an emotional connection until they begin to reciprocate his feelings. He is inconspicuous in his “chase.” The more he enjoys the chase, the more he begins to idealize his crush.

When the Mars in Pisces man first meets someone, he will feel what they want and can turn into his partner’s dream man. He is the ultimate emotional chameleon which can be very confusing for his partner, at first.

He is super mushy when he likes someone. The Mars in Pisces man is the person to pull out all of the romantic stops, to write poetry, to gush about his lover, etc. He falls head over heels when he finds someone he likes.

He can be a bit reckless in love, especially at first. His love interest quickly becomes the center of his universe. No one and nothing else matters to him because his emotions are what drive him.

The Mars in Pisces man will learn all of the things that his love interest likes and replicate these things for them. He wants his love interest to know that he will take care of them emotionally by making them feel safe and happy. 

In short, the Mars in Pisces is the classic “nice guy” when he likes someone, but his moods can change quite suddenly, so this might not last long.

In a relationship, the Mars in Pisces man can be a bit dramatic. He could manifest drama by creating an issue. His partner may be very confused about why he’s doing this, but the Mars in Pisces man lives in a fantasy some of the time, so the issue he has created feels quite real to him.

The Mars in Pisces man tends to think that his personal drama is the most important thing happening in the world. It’s hard for him to disengage from what he is feeling inside.

The underdog position is the perfect spot for the Mars in Pisces man. He might not mean to have the victim mentality, but he definitely knows how to get what he needs by playing the victim. He might unconsciously attract women who feel bad for him and want to care for him.

For example, Mars in Pisces men can sometimes have addiction problems, if they rest of their chart supports this. These men are likely to find women who want to “save” them from their addictions with love. This is a slippery slope that isn’t often successful unless a dose of reality is introduced to the relationship.

The Mars in Pisces man has an etherial, mysterious vibe that lures women to him. His partners are always worried that he will self-destruct so they tend to be more concerned about his needs than their own.

If the Mars in Pisces man isn’t mentally healthy, he can wreak a lot of havoc on his partners’ emotional and mental well-beings. If he is grounded, then he can be a sensitive and caring loving, as long as he reciprocates.

Even though the Mars in Pisces man can take a lot from his lover, he doesn’t actually think he is better than anyone. He can actually think quite badly of himself and have confidence problems.

When the Mars in Pisces man is angry, he is likely to express it indirectly by being passive aggressive or starting drama about something else entirely. It’s hard for him to say exactly what he is upset about because he stuffs his anger down.

He might alternatively express his anger onto himself instead of the other person. This can be really painful for him and can damage his mental state. He will want to learn to express anger in a healthy and constructive way by asking for what he needs instead of just hoping he gets it.

Sometimes, the Mars in Pisces man can even have insecurity about how emotional he is. He will try to counteract his never-ending emotions with masculine hobbies such as working out, sports, cars, the military, or anything that makes him feel more traditionally masculine.

This is typically a misplaced effort to get control of his own emotions because they’re simply so vast. In reality, the Mars in Pisces man would do well to simply work with his emotions and learn how to express them in a healthy, constructive way.

Other men with Mars in Pisces aren’t insecure about this and embrace their emotions wholeheartedly; much of this will depend on the rest of the chart and life circumstances, as well as how their parents reacted to their emotional outbursts.

The Mars In Pisces Woman:

The Venus in Pisces woman will have an etherial, dreamy aspect to her character that potential partners will sense from across the room. She enjoys a delicate, energetic chase, instead of someone who comes on too strong.

The classic Mars in Pisces woman is attracted to partners with soft, sensitive energy. They may also be intrigued by moody or unpredictable people. 

Sometimes, this can mean that the Mars in Pisces woman is attracted to musicians, artists, or spiritually-inclined people, or she may just be captivated by those who have a deep and tortured energy, regardless of their job.

Because Pisces is so elusive and fantastical, the men she ends up with may not have any of these qualities. She might have simply manifested the idea! Once she decides that someone is tortured or is a victim, it’s hard for her to change the picture in her head, even if reality doesn’t support it.

For example, a Mars in Pisces woman may meet a man and hear him say just one emotional thing about his past. Even though he is emotionless much of the time, she clings to the idea of the statement he said and will visualize a picture of him that isn’t real.

Once the Mars in Pisces woman feels an emotionally connection, she is “hooked.” She wants to feel that the other person is energetically all in right away. If she can be blown away emotionally, that’s all she needs.

It’s easy for the Mars in Pisces woman to be out of touch with who her partner really is. She believes what a partner shows her immediately, even if it’s just an initial facade. Once she has created a fantasy world around her partner it’s difficult for her to let go of it.

She is drawn to the underdog or to anyone with a sad story. Because her feelings dictate if a relationship should proceed, she can have trouble with her judgment. Her feelings will often be based around the first meeting instead of the relationship today.

She will either get stuck in an unhappy, longterm relationship, or she will flee when she realizes her partner isn’t what she projected. The Mars in Pisces woman has a tendency to be a bit of a love addict.

Over time, the Mars in Pisces woman will learn how to discern what’s real and to use her gut feelings in relationships. She will need some practice; it’s very difficult for a Venus in Pisces woman to discern reality from fantasy when she’s young.

It’s perfectly natural for this woman to have more than a few relationships in order to learn the skills she needs to find a suitable partner. In the beginning of her journey, she will be desperate to fulfill her emotional fantasies, but over time she will learn that long-term stability makes her happier than the initial fantasy.

Ideally, she will end up with someone who is also a bit responsible and steady. She will still be looking for a dose of romantic energy, but the best partner for her will be someone amorous and grounded to help her stay balanced.

Ultimately, what the Mars in Pisces woman is really looking for is a safe haven. She wants someone to help her create an emotional space she can retreat to when the world feels overwhelming.

How to Master the Mars in Pisces Energy

The biggest lesson with Mars in Pisces is to learn how to create emotional boundaries between yourself and others.

You can do this by discerning what your real emotions are and why you have them instead of simply getting “caught up” in the emotional rollercoaster. Over time, your extreme emotions will start to feel depressing, which is when you will want to figure them out instead of just acting on them.

Mars in Pisces people have a tendency to be addicted to either substances or love, but this is because they want to avoid looking inward. It can be really scary for Mars in Pisces people to look at their feelings because they have so many of them.

However, this is the path to happiness. You want to figure out how to express your feelings in a healthy way instead of building them up and becoming passive aggressive.

When you’re able to figure out what you feel and why, and when you can tell others what you need in a constructive way, you will feel a lot happier and more well-adjusted in your own life.

All About Mars In Leo In The Birth Chart

All About Mars In Leo In The Birth Chart

Mars is known as the planet of drive, passion, and anger, but these qualities can vary greatly based on the placement. Mars in Leo in particular is a strong placement that can be really great for career and relationships.

Those with Mars in Leo are proud, driven, and charismatic.

The Mars in Leo placement is known for being image-driven, but I find that this is only because those with Mars in Leo have a different method of self-esteem repair than other placements.

These folks have a lot of ambition and are natural leaders. They really are the lions of the Mars signs! If you have the Mars in Leo placement, you’re forceful yet sincere. 

Every Mars placement has both positive and negative characteristics that I will delve into here!

Mars In Leo Characteristics

Mars shows many different areas of the personality, but Mars characteristics are especially evident in your drive, temper, career, relationships, and attraction.

Here are the ways that Mars in Leo tends to manifest in an individual’s personality.

Drive:

Because Leo is a fixed sign, with Mars in Leo you have a lot of staying power. Your drive is typically “long-term.”

This means that if you want something, you will work over a long period of time to get it. You probably have well-defined ambitions or at least know where you’d like to get in life.

Your drive is enhanced when your life has some sort of meaning. For you to achieve your goals, they need to have some sort of personal significance. Logic alone isn’t enough to make you want something.

Look to the house that Mars is in to determine in what areas of life you’re most likely to have a strong drive.

Mars in the 2nd house, for example, would give you a strong drive for money and possessions, while Mars in the 7th house would give you a drive for forming relationships and/or partnerships.

With Mars in Leo, you probably need a “calling” to be successful. You must feel like you’re doing something that’s meant for you.

You have a lot of authority and personal power. With the strong belief that you’ll get what you want, you can be quite successful.

Generally, Mars in Leo people are extremely determined with whatever they choose to do. Every Mars in Leo loves a challenge.

You never back down with Mars in Leo, even over the long haul. Tough challenges don’t scare you as long as you have a sense of purpose!

In fact, the only thing that will significantly dull your drive is losing your sense of purpose. You’re more afraid of feeling uninspired than of not succeeding.

With Mars in Leo, when you’re feeling bored or fidgety, you need to take action. Waiting too long will certainly kill your drive.

Taking action is always the answer when you’re feeling stuck. Just do it!

Temper:

Those with Mars in Leo have a quick temper when they feel personally humiliated or attacked. If you have Mars in Leo, you’re most likely to get angry when your ego is hurt.

It might be really hard for you to separate your accomplishments and attributes from your inner self, so you take any criticism very personally.

When you feel insulted (which can be quite often) you’re likely to hold a grudge. You feel like the person has attacked your character, even if this isn’t true.

You act with your heart with Mars in Leo. This can be good when you’re feeling loving, but it can also mean that you never forget when someone hurts you. You might not show it, but you always remember what someone has done.

These folks aren’t necessarily angry or explosive but are simply strong-willed. If their pride gets damaged they can be quite dramatic and cause a ruckus. 

It’s common for those with Mars in Leo to get really defensive when they’re hurt. They feel personally attacked whenever someone criticizes them or their work.

Mars in Leo folks will go out of their way to defend their principles. They are guided completely by their principles and feel strongly about their beliefs.

They can also be boastful, especially when young, although this isn’t always the case.

When it comes to relationships, those with Mars in Leo expect loyalty from others. If they don’t get loyalty they can become very upset and are not quick to forgive.

The goal is for those with Mars in Leo to learn how to control their ego and think with logic as well as their heart. 

Career:

If you have Mars in Leo, you are generally very sincere in your career. You certainly want to do well but you won’t cut corners to get what you want. You’re very honest.

You have a strong energy and can be quite successful. When you decide to do something, it is set in motion as soon as the decision itself is made because your energy is so powerful.

With Mars in Leo, you probably don’t like being told what to do. You prefer to figure things out yourself. To do so, you use classic problem solving abilities mixed with a dose of creativity.

You might be very successful with creative endeavors due to Mars in Leo, but this isn’t always the case and will depend on the house and placement. Generally, Leo is a creative or dramatic sign.

Those with Mars in Leo can be successful with theater, acting, screenwriting, creative writing, poetry, photography, hairdressing, music, communication, art, and anything else expressive or creative. They may also work with children.

I find that those with Mars in Leo are often attracted to “distinction” in some way. This can be for themselves or others. For some people with this placement, power or fame are very alluring.

Keep in mind that Mars alone does not determine your entire career, so you may have other placements (such as planets in your 10th house) that influence your career quite a bit.

Nevertheless, your Mars in Leo placement is likely to give your career a dose of creativity or flair, regardless of what you actually do.

You dream big and never stop trying no matter what happens. It simply isn’t in you to give up until you achieve what you want in career. The only time you may lapse in career is when you feel uninspired or unimportant.

With Mars in Leo, you have a quiet confidence that is simply powerful. You don’t necessarily tell everyone what you’re doing, but your tenacity shines through your work.

Attraction:

When you have the Mars in Leo placement, you over-romanticize relationships at first. Attraction is alluring to you because everything looks bright and shiny when you’re falling for someone.

You may have an underlying confident energy that others are attracted to. 

Sometimes with Mars in Leo, you fib a little to impress someone when you first meet them. You can overdo it to hide your weaknesses because you want to project the best version of yourself.

Those with Mars in Leo are often attracted to luxury. This may be luxurious items or it might simply be the air of luxury.

Romance/Sex:

With Mars in Leo, you want to be noticed and paid attention to in a relationship. You might even want your partner to worship you.

You can be generous with your partner as well, but you certainly want to be admired for yourself. You enjoy giving your time and effort as long as you receive the same back, too.

Your fantasies probably revolve around devotion. Sexually, being worshipped is very exciting to you.

Your pride is really fragile when it comes to romance and sex. You can be easily crushed by a few misplaced words.

In a relationship, you may be a bit possessive or jealous, but you probably try to hide it. You expect absolute loyalty from your partners.

You can be a bit bossy without realizing it because you’re simply focused on yourself and your own world. 

Of all of the Mars signs, it is the hardest for Mars in Leo to separate love and sex. Your sexual fantasies probably include a lot of love, affection, and admiration, so there aren’t many boundaries in your love life.

Nothing will kill your sex drive faster than ambivalence. You need to know that your partner is engaged and enjoying themselves. You may treat sex like a bit of a performance; this is more common for women.

At best, those with Mars in Leo are open and direct with their partners about what they need. At their worst, they manipulate or test their partners to see how much they “truly” love them.

Mars In Leo: Best & Worst Qualities

Every placement has both good and bad qualities. Mars in Leo is no different!

These qualities are possibilities, but the qualities that you actually embody will depend on the rest of your chart as well as the house and aspects of Mars.

Mars In Leo: Male vs. Female

This part can get a little confusing, so bear with me as I explain it.

Basically, Mars shows itself differently for someone with more masculine energy than it does for someone with more feminine energy.

It’s up to you to choose with energy you identify with more. If you’re unsure, I recommend reading the description of each energy for Mars in Leo (below) and then choosing what resonates with you.

Generally, for a man or for someone with masculine energy) Mars will show how the person acts and the vibes that they gives off towards others. When this person is flirting, they will assume many of the qualities of Mars in Leo.

For a woman or for someone with feminine energy, Mars will show what kind of qualities they are attracted to. How this person will act depends on their Venus sign, but Mars dictates what types of energy they are drawn towards in a partner.

Keep in mind that these distinctions aren’t absolute. As a straight woman, I definitely show my Venus sign when I’m flirting, but sometimes my Mars will bleed through just a bit.

I find that these definitions are about 80% accurate, but we’re always a unique combination of all of our signs.

The Mars In Leo Man

The typical Mars in Leo man has a magnanimous energy. He’s sociable and attracts women easily with his energy.

Sometimes, the Mars in Leo man can be a bit domineering. He may want to be the center of attention.

Even though he may not actually do or say anything to imply he desires attention, his energy conveys this desire to others. He typically finds partners who are willing to give him the spotlight.

Although the Mars in Leo man might date casually, he always wants to come off as his absolute best. The way that he appears is very important to him and is an integral part of his self-esteem.

When you first meet the Mars in Leo man, he might come off as a bit unattainable. This energy tends to attract people to him.

Even though he feels elusive, he is also charismatic and gregarious. The Mars in Leo man is anything but cold.

He has a gravitational energy. People swarm towards him in a room, even if he looks perfectly average.

Sometimes, the Mars in Leo man can be easy to offend. He is often set off because his pride is so fragile. He can be hurt quite easily.

It can be difficult for a partner to deal with the Mars in Leo man. His partner will need to walk on eggshells from time to time.

If his partner deceives him, he is apt to leave and not turn back. He finds it very hard to forgive.

When it comes to attraction, the Mars in Leo man will typically be attracted to women who are popular but passive, although this will be influenced greatly by his Venus sign.

In bed, he is usually honest with his lover. He might criticize their technique under the guise of honesty but wants to be revered when it comes to his own technique. He certainly expects his lover to notice how “great” he is, whether or not it’s true.

The Mars in Leo man can be really loving and giving in his own way. He certainly projects a warm, gregarious energy, and if he transfers this to his partner then he can be wonderful.

The Mars In Leo Woman

The Mars in Leo woman is attracted to all things classy and impressive. She will be drawn towards the largest, most gravitational energy in the room.

She wants someone who is strong. The Mars in Leo woman isn’t attracted to weaklings; she wants a capable partner who knows their own mind. She has her own powerful energy and needs someone to rival it.

When the Mars in Leo woman is flirting, she will probably act more like her Venus sign (whatever that may be) but will feel like her Mars in Leo inside.

She has a powerful energy in her soul that is quite Leo. Sometimes, her potential partners sense this energy, even though her Venus sign is what they see more clearly at first. The Mars in Leo woman will want to be worshipped like a Leo. Her partner may not realize this at first because her Venus sign is more evident.

When she is first getting to know someone, the Mars in Leo woman may go slow. She can come off as slightly unattainable.

In a relationship, the Mars in Leo woman is romantic and fun. She enjoys lively dates and outings; she will need a partner who likes trying new, glamorous things with her.

The Mars in Leo woman can have a pretty high sex drive. At the same time, she may have difficulty in a long term relationship because she won’t know when to stop putting on a “performance.” It’s hard for her to stop worrying about what her partner is seeing and to just enjoy herself.

She ultimately seeks praise and approval, but she may have trouble telling her partner what she needs. Otherwise, the Mars in Leo might pick men who are simply unable to approve of her.

Even though she seeks approval, she can simultaneously be quite difficult to please. Sometimes, partners of the Mars in Leo woman feel as though they must walk on eggshells.

When upset, this woman can be very dramatic. She is the type to create theatrics over something small if her ego is hurt. It might be hard for her to say what’s really bothering her, so she deflects by creating a rather melodramatic conflict.

She will expect her partners to be generous with their time or money. This feels like love to her, however the specifics of what she wants will depend on the house placement and aspects to Mars.

The Mars in Leo woman can become depressed if she isn’t feeling noticed or praised. She needs validation to feel confident. This isn’t a lack of self-esteem but is simply how she is wired.

She may be attracted to attention-seeking men, but this can be a self-fulfilling prophecy because their egos may be too large to notice her properly, so she doesn’t get the validation that she needs.

The Mars in Leo woman isn’t scared to take up a challenging project. She actually loves a challenge as long as it promises fame or fortune.

She refuses to make compromises when she wants something. For the Mars in Leo woman, it’s all or nothing.

The Mars in Leo gal isn’t a safe bet but is always interesting. At her best, she’s quite driven and works from the heart in all that she does.

How To Master The Mars In Leo Energy

With Mars in Leo, you will want to work on finding a partner who gives you what you need emotionally instead of the person who has the largest gravitational energy.

It’s easy for you to end up in relationships with people who are popular or important but the relationships may be unfulfilling. The goal is to find a partner who both has this attractive energy and who is willing to fulfill your emotional needs.

It’s also important to learn how to ask for what you need. It may be your inclination to lash out when you’re not feeling noticed, but instead of starting dramatics, learn how to communicate more clearly. Ask for what you need instead of blowing up straight away.

Your pride is easily hurt and this can make your life a bit of an emotional roller coaster. Work on moderating your emotions and figuring out why you feel the way you do instead of lashing out or falling into depression.

Mars in Leo is all about the “work hard play hard” life. Don’t be afraid to do both! Live and enjoy life.

Part Of Fortune In The Houses & Signs

Part Of Fortune In The Houses & Signs

Part of Fortune is a less well-known placement in astrology but I find it to be so important. Everyone wants to know how they can make more money; Part of Fortune can tell you just that.

In ancient astrology, Part of Fortune was extremely important. It was called the lunar ascendant and was almost as important as our ascendant is now!

Part of Fortune is calculated by starting with the degree of the ascendant, minus the degree of the sun, plus the degree of the moon. It really is an integral astrology placement because it is calculated using the biggest three signs in your chart.

In transit charts, Part of Fortune is very popular because it is an indicator that an event will achieve a desired goal. If you’re looking to “time” prosperity, Part of Fortune is really important.

I find, however, that Part of Fortune is often overlooked in the natal chart. Your Part of Fortune will show you what qualities you need to be successful in general, not just for one point in time.

The Part Of Fortune Symbol:

Part of Fortune is named for the goddess Fortuna in Roman mythology, the goddess of fortune, money, and good luck.

In your birth chart, you can find the Part of Fortune astrology symbol that looks like this:

Like any other planet, asteroid, or point, Part of Fortune will be in a specific sign and a house.

What Does Part Of Fortune Mean In The Birth Chart?

Part of Fortune astrology represents how you can achieve success. This success can be defined as whatever is most important to you in this lifetime, whether you think about relationships, money, things, etc.

However, I generally find that Part of Fortune refers to money or material success for most people, unless you absolutely don’t care about money at all.

Your Part of Fortune astrology sign represents the qualities that you need to embrace in order to achieve your goals.

Like anything else, the Part of Fortune astrology sign has an exact opposite. For example, if your Part of Fortune is in Taurus, you have the urge to embrace some more Scorpionic qualities, but this will be detrimental to your longterm success.

In order to really achieve your goals, you need to learn how to embody the qualities of your Part of Fortune astrology sign instead of those of the opposite sign.

I feel that Part of Fortune is a very logical, unemotional placement. If you’re able to embrace the qualities of your Part of Fortune sign then you will succeed. It’s as simple as that.

Part of Fortune is an indicator of prosperity, but will also tell you how to reach the “pot of gold” towards the end of your life. It represents the traits that you need to develop in order to bring you material success and happiness.

You may already possess some of the traits of your Part of Fortune astrology sign, but there are always more that you can consciously develop in order to enhance your fortune.

Part Of Fortune In The Signs:

Part of Fortune is important in both the sign and house, but I recommend that you read your Part of Fortune astrology sign first, since the sign is typically more obvious to you than the house.

Part Of Fortune In Aries:

If you have Part of Fortune in Aries, you need to find your inner fire. Don’t be afraid of obstacles or challenges.

Come at any issues head on instead of shirking away. Part of Fortune in Aries means that you will find your ultimate fortune when you stand up to your problems instead of avoiding them.

You might need to do this alone at some points. You can have family or friends who support you, but Part of Fortune in Aries is all about finding your inner strength even when no one else can help you.

Be spontaneous when working towards goals. Follow your intuition and don’t be afraid to try new things or take risks! This is how you will achieve your dreams.

With Part of Fortune in Aries, you need to trust what you think and feel, not what others tell you. Don’t get swayed by social pressure, friends, partners, etc.

Always trust your own hunches. If something feels right, do it. Don’t worry about what everyone else will think.

Above everything else, with Part of Fortune in Aries, you should always be taking action. Just do it! If you don’t know what to do, try something and never be afraid to fail.

Part Of Fortune In Taurus:

With Part of Fortune in Taurus, hard work is key. Slow and steady wins the race!

You should be careful that you don’t get sucked into the emotional depth of what you’re doing. Instead, look at tasks factually and focus on what is tangible right in front of you.

Part of Fortune in Taurus has to do with logic. Look at what you know rather than what you feel. 

When you feel defeated, simply regroup and keep going. 

Be patient and work hard in the material world. Don’t get sucked into emotions but simply look at what is right in front of you. Look at what makes sense in a tangible way.

Make sure with Part in Fortune in Taurus that you stick to things you know. Reliable is always best; don’t gamble or take too many chances or you might loose everything.

Even though Part of Fortune in Taurus is about being steady, the universe can switch things up on you at any time. Try to stay fluid and go where the universal energy leads you, then work at a steady pace to move forward.

Part Of Fortune In Gemini:

With Part of Fortune in Gemini, you need to remain flexible. Don’t get bogged down in “sameness” but be open to the flow of life.

Get out there, talk to different people, learn different things, and look at the world from alternate perspectives. This is how you will figure out what the best next step is for you.

The most important thing with Part of Fortune in Gemini is to learn how to accept change. Through adaptation you will achieve success.

Always be on the lookout for new opportunities; you will achieve your goals slowly through a series of upward moves.

Additionally, you can find a lot of opportunities through networking with Part of Fortune in Gemini. 

Part Of Fortune In Cancer:

With Part of Fortune in Cancer, you need to use your emotional intuition to be successful. You just know when something feels right and when it will work, but you also know when you’re wasting your time.

Because Capricorn is the opposite of Cancer, you might be tempted to ignore your intuition and work hard to achieve your goals. While hard work is necessary, this will not work unless you also incorporate your intuition.

Nurturing is the key to happiness with Part of Fortune in Cancer.  Even straightforward work must be nurtured.

You may find success if you “birth” or create something, whether this is an idea, a business, a child, a home, etc. You feel called to create something that didn’t previously exist.
 
With Part of Fortune in Cancer, you can go after what you desire, but remember to stay connected and nurture your creations instead of forcing them to grow.
 

Part Of Fortune In Leo:

With Part of Fortune in Leo, you will achieve your goals when you cultivate generosity and optimism. You need to master what you want for yourself.

You can be a wonderful leader when you lead by example. Don’t preach but show.

Part of Fortune in Leo has a lot to do with creativity. You need to find your own personal creativity in everything that you do. Focus on topics that are meaningful to you.

To be successful with Part of Fortune in Leo, you must have a personal connection to the topic. You will not succeed if you remain emotionally disconnected. 

Give to people without expecting anything in return. Keeping tabs of gifting is a surefire way to never reach your goals.

Part of Fortune in Leo is all about generosity. When you give you will receive from the universe.

With Part of Fortune in Leo, you must always pour your heart into what you do and lead by example. If you’re able to do this, you will be quite successful and achieve your lifelong goals.

Part Of Fortune In Virgo:

With Part of Fortune in Virgo, you must keep things in order. Through hard work and attention to detail, you can achieve success over time.

You must learn to deal with small, day-to-day matters as they arise. Don’t put anything off. Learn to deal with problems logically and one at a time without feeling overwhelmed.

You need to create a daily lifestyle that is healthy with Part of Fortune in Virgo. You will find it very difficult to achieve success without some sort of daily routine.

Those with Part of Fortune in Virgo can also be sensitive to the energy of those around them. With the placement, you may need introspective time to destress.

It’s very important with Part of Fortune in Virgo that you don’t get sucked into identifying too strongly with others. Pull both and figure out what’s true for you.

Sometimes, you may experience rather strong, overwhelming emotions because of the Picean opposite. You don’t want to get lost in the current of emotions or you will find it hard to achieve what you desire.

Instead, learn to discern factually what is true from what is false. Focus on your own inner peace and your inner truth.

This always lies in careful discernment through logic, even if you must use logic to figure out how and why you feel your emotions.

Part Of Fortune In Libra:

If you have Part of Fortune in Libra, you find success through balance and harmony. It’s important that you have tolerance, especially towards others.

You should not be hasty in your decisions. It might be easy for you to swing towards the qualities of Aries, but this will not bring you true success.

You might want to “go it alone” but you will be most successful in partnerships, at least when you’re starting out. You need other people to bounce your ideals off of.

Part of Fortune in Libra is all about maintaining equilibirum. When you get out of balance, you will struggle to achieve your goals.

Cultivate diplomacy and grace. Focus on creating win-win situations with others and you will certainly achieve what you desire.

Most of all, with Part of Fortune in Libra, share with others. Care for those around you and allow them to care for you in return.

Learn to delegate and to share while still taking care of your own needs. It’s a balancing act!

Part Of Fortune In Scorpio:

With Part of Fortune in Scorpio, you find success by tapping into your intuition. 

The opposite sign of Scorpio is Taurus, so it may be easy for you to get bogged down in the material aspect of life. Be careful that you do not obsesses over status or achievement.

You can certainly use your Part of Fortune in Scorpio to become wealthy, as of course this is what most of us want (and probably why you’re reading this article), but this can’t be your main focus.

It is extremely important that you use your intuition. Don’t let yourself be deluded by material things in the world; the answers are already inside of you.

With Part of Fortune in Scorpio, you need to strip away the outer layers and get to the core. When you’re struggling to figure something out, try to get to the inner meaning of the thing.

You have a keen perception but you have to tap into your intuition to know what’s right.

Part of Fortune in Scorpio is all about unlocking your creativity. Allow yourself to be transformed emotionally instead of becoming trapped in the material world.

Sometimes, those with Part of Fortune in Scorpio can also find success through witchcraft or the occult, although this depends on other aspects in the chart.

Part Of Fortune In Sagittarius:

If you have Part of Fortune in Sagittarius, you will find that honest and directness are extremely important. 

The opposite of Sagittarius is Gemini, so you may have the inclination to lie your way out of things, but this will not help you achieve success in the long-term.

Part of Fortune in Sagittarius also means that you will be more successful if you try new things and experience different cultures. Some find fortune far from their homes while others simply find wealth in a field they never expected.

Be very careful of acting erratic or lying. These are Gemini qualities but they will not help you with Part of Fortune in Sagittarius. Instead of focusing on others, focus on your own truths that are already inside you and live by them.

Part Of Fortune In Capricorn:

Part of Fortune in Capricorn is all about perseverance. You may get bogged down in the emotions of a situation, but the road to success is found by focusing on the hard, cold facts rather than feelings.

You need to take responsibility for yourself with Part of Fortune in Capricorn. You won’t find success through anything but your own hard work.

Look at the facts, make a plan, and then follow it. Try to avoid getting too sensitive by things that others do or say and instead look at what you can do about it.

With Part of Fortune in Capricorn, negative emotions will drain you quickly. Figure out a way to rise above your emotions.

Don’t let fear and doubts interfere with you; keep pushing ahead and just do it! Part of Fortune in Capricorn is all about staying true to your path and focusing on your longterm goals.

Part Of Fortune In Aquarius:

With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, you are different from others in some way. Your natural inclination may be to hide this, but embracing your differences is the path to success.

If you swing towards the opposite spectrum which is Leo, you might try to be noticed. It’s easy for you to get wrapped up in the ego state of wanting power and recognition, but this not how you will actually achieve success.

To succeed with Part of Fortune in Aquarius, the work is to see being “different” as a neutral fact. You naturally do things unconventionally but you must learn to embrace this about yourself instead of trying to hide it.

Learn to revel in your own uniqueness. With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, you will come to recognize the special differences that others have over time, too.

It is when you think outside the box that you will be truly successful and reach your goals. Don’t be bound by convention and don’t be afraid of what others will say.

With Part of Fortune in Aquarius, detach from your need from approval and embrace you uniqueness to achieve your goals.

Part Of Fortune In Pisces:

With Part of Fortune in Pisces, you will achieve your goals when you detach from the outcome. 

Allow the energy of the universe to guide you to your destination. Learn to flow with the energy and where it takes you.

Your goals may change along the way with Part of Fortune in Pisces. Accept this as it comes and try to avoid manipulating or controlling things.

It’s also easy for those with Part of Fortune in Pisces to take things personally. Try to accept all that happens as energetic reactions instead of things happening to you.

You will reach your goals naturally if you flow with the energy of the universe. Try to let things manifest as they will and stay impersonal.

Part of Fortune in Pisces is all about learning during the process. When you focus on what you are learning rather than the outcome, you will reach that pot of gold much more quickly.

Chiron In Pisces: The Wound Of Faith

Chiron In Pisces: The Wound Of Faith

Chiron is known as the wounded healer in astrology. Even though he was able to heal others, he couldn’t treat his own injury. 

Your Chiron sign in astrology shows where you sustained your deepest wound. Chironic wounds can never be completely healed, but they can be worked with and transmuted for good.

Chiron in Pisces is an especially interesting placement because both Chiron and the sign of Pisces represent duality. There is a push-pull with this sign; you want to be “one” with the universe but also feel that you cannot be because of your human nature.

This duality also means that Chiron in Pisces manifests in one of two ways. Keep reading to find out which side of Chiron in Pisces you represent.

The Chiron In Pisces Wound

Chiron in Pisces is all about a loss of trust in the universe. With Chiron in Pisces, you don’t completely believe in the oneness of all that is.

In the first scenario, you have a deep fear of being hurt by the universe or the forces at play. You might feel that the world is unfair or merciless, or that you have been “left out to dry.”

Often, those with Chiron in Pisces have a sense of betrayal. You feel that the universe wasn’t there for you when you most needed the help. You may also feel a sense of victimization.

Chiron in Pisces has a lot to do with the idea of fate. Most individuals with Chiron in Pisces think, even subconsciously, that they were dealt an unfair hand in life.

If this is how you express your Chiron in Pisces sign then your biggest issue will be that you have emotionally disconnected. The pain you felt by this “rejection” from the universe overwhelmed you and you shut down.

Alternatively with Chiron in Pisces, you might feel like you’re not deserving of the energy of the universe. You probably feel the suffering of the world very deeply and find it easy to become stuck in your own suffering.

When someone feels pain, you feel it right alongside them. The pain of others is amplified but your own wounds are intensified, too. 

Even though you don’t victimize yourself in the traditional sense, you create a victim mentality by getting stuck in the pain of the world. You can’t understand why the universe is set up this way; you feel that the way of the world is unfair to you and to others.

Sometimes, someone with Chiron in Pisces can express qualities of both of these sides, but more often those with Chiron in Pisces tend to either fit into the first scenario or the second.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

With Chiron in Pisces, depending on how you experience your pain, you will react in one of two ways.

Firstly, you may develop a hard shell of cynicism. You don’t have much empathy for others because you feel that the world and the universe had no empathy for you.

When feelings threaten to overwhelm you, it’s easier for you to shut them out. You may be very avoidant of people and situations that bother your or you may engage in escapist behaviors such as drinking, doing drugs, or other addictive behaviors.

Alternatively, you identify with the underdog. You try to always rescue others and have immense sympathy for anyone in the smallest amount of pain.

You may feel overwhelmed by your empathy; it’s easy for you to wallow in your feelings. You can also become a martyr, even emotionally, and cause a lot of suffering to yourself and those around you because of your wild emotions.

Sometimes, with Chiron in Pisces, you even idealize the suffering that you feel while being simultaneously horrified by it. You have no energetic barrier so the energy of others seeps right into you and influences how you act.

Sometimes, those with Chiron in Pisces express a bit of both of these qualities or swing back and forth between extreme cynicism and empathy.

Where Does The Chiron In Pisces Wound Come From?

Your Chiron in Pisces was created at some point in the past when you needed something badly and didn’t get it. You felt like the universe let you down and believed that you weren’t important.

These negative feelings created a deep wound surrounding your connectedness to the universe and your importance in the world. You felt less important than others.

Sometimes, the Chiron in Pisces wound stems from a past life, but it often has some roots in your childhood during this life, too.

Maybe you felt insignificant to your parents in some way. Perhaps your parents didn’t notice your accomplishments. Often, people find that their parents didn’t acknowledge their specialness or see how they fit into the world.

Look to the house to see where you most experienced Chiron in Pisces.

If you became wounded with Chiron in Pisces during a past life, then the events of your childhood only solidified your belief that the universe doesn’t have your back and that you really don’t have a purpose in the way that others do.

How to Heal Chiron in Pisces

Typically with Chiron in Pisces, you want to run away from the wound. Pisces is all about escapism and this certainly applies with the Chiron in Pisces placement.

There is simply no way to heal the Chiron in Pisces wound without turning around and facing it head on. You may need to re-live past experiences and go through the pain rather than around it.

The goal is to figure out what is true and what is false. You have some false beliefs about the universe and about your place in the world.

You may think that the universe/God (or your version of God) isn’t on your side or that you have been left behind. You may feel unimportant. The goal is to confront these negative beliefs and dig into them in a logical way.

Figure out why some of these false beliefs aren’t true. This can be quite a lot of work and self-reflection but is always worth it in the end.

Black Moon Lilith Aspects In Synastry

Black Moon Lilith Aspects In Synastry

Black Moon Lilith aspects in synastry are some of the coolest placements. Whenever Lilith is around, you can expect to feel a wild, intense, deep, and sometimes obsessive energy. If you have Lilith aspects in synastry then this energy will show up in your relationship.

Lilith by herself is extremely transformative. She is all about the shadow side.

Whenever your Lilith touches one of your partner’s planets or vice-versa, you can expect to see your deepest fears revealed. You might also see glimpses of things you desire but can’t have.

Ultimately, Lilith aspects in synastry give both partners a chance to work on their shadow sides. Lilith reveals pieces of yourself that you didn’t know existed.

Lilith aspects can be uncomfortable, but without them, we wouldn’t be able to work through our most taboo issues.

Lilith Aspects In Synastry:

Depending on what planet Lilith is touching, Lilith aspects in synastry can bring up issues relating to sexuality and sexual energy, transformation, society and expectations, obsession, freedom, and all things taboo. 

When you have a strong Lilith aspect with your partner in the synastry chart, you experience a deep and magnetic attraction. It can feel dangerous or wild, but the energy is also alluring.

Because Black Moon Lilith is so sexual, you’ll definitely see a lot of Lilith aspects relating to sexuality. These aspects can be transformative for good or for bad. Lilith can also be really addictive; she has no boundaries.

Lilith is often known as the “home wrecker” (even though there is no basis for this claim in mythology) because when you meet someone with whom you share strong Lilith aspects, it’s almost impossible to stay even. It can be really destructive to meet someone with Lilith aspects when one is already in a committed relationship.

Most strong Lilith aspects create a intense sense of seduction, but the relationship can also feel erratic or unstable. 

Of course, we all have choices. Many of us choose not to act on our Lilith aspects, but not everything that Lilith touches is bad. She reveals the parts of ourselves that we have hidden away due to fear.

Through Lilith, we can connect with our authentic inner being. She helps us to to break free and face our fears.

90% of the time, Lilith aspects just aren’t enough to hold a relationship together. When you’re looking at a synastry chart, you will need to look for other supportive aspects in addition to Lilith aspects.

Most Lilith aspects won’t tell you if you’re “meant to be” or if you’ll stay together forever, but these aspects will show how you can create a healthier, happier relationship, and what issues you’re working on within the relationship.

Lilith conjunct Sun synastry:

Lilith conjunct sun is a relatively strong aspect in a synastry chart. This can be a really obsessive placement for both partners but can also be a relationship that is brimming with chemistry.

This Lilith conjunct sun synastry relationship has many main themes around Lilith. There’s a certain dark, taboo vibe that is central to the relationship.

At first, this aspect creates an irresistible attraction. Over time, the relationship will either blossom under the taboo qualities of Lilith or descend into obsession and anger.

Often, the sun person represents all that the Lilith person wants but can never quite “catch.” There is an illusive vibe to this relationship. The Lilith person may feel somewhat less-than or “bad.”

The Lilith conjunct sun synastry relationship will activate all of the Lilith person’s most Lilith-like qualities. Sometimes, the Lilith person doesn’t even know that they have these qualities within themselves before they meet the sun individual.

If Lilith is celebrated and the couple chooses to embrace these differences and taboos then this can be a really transformative and positive relationship. These two will never come across as a typical couple, but if they are able to accept themselves and celebrate Lilith then they can be quite happy together.

Lilith conjunct sun in synastry is a test for the Lilith person because their most taboo qualities such as obsession and anger will be activated, but it’s also a test for the sun person.

I typically see that the sun person feels this push-pull energy towards the Lilith person; they are deeply attracted to the Lilith individual but also want to run away from the obsession and possessiveness. 

The lesson is for the sun individual to stand their ground and follow their inner voice. Lilith is neither good nor bad, and the sun person can share in some of the Lilith partner’s activities without merging.

This Lilith conjunct sun synastry aspect is always transformative because it brings Lilith to light. It allows the Lilith person to learn, in real time, how to celebrate Lilith instead of descending into obsession and rage.

There is a tendency for this couple to attach too much importance to sex. They might also have a need to control or rebel against each other, although this is not always the case, especially if Lilith is transmuted by both partners.

Lilith conjunct Moon synastry:

With the Lilith conjunct moon synastry placement, the Lilith person often triggers the moon person’s emotional wounds. The moon person is attracted to the Lilith person but can quickly feel afraid or unsafe.

This placement stirs up a lot of feelings for both people. There is a deep emotional attachment, but Lilith conjunct moon can also bring out negative, hidden emotions from each partner.

Mainly, this placement is almost guaranteed to bring up issues with the mother figure. These issues typically come up for the moon individual as they “relive” their mother trauma with the Lilith individual, although the opposite is possible as well.

The moon person can feel somewhat “bewitched” by the Lilith person. This energy is very subtle and is often subconscious, but it can run the relationship before either partner is aware of what’s happening.

Regardless, there will be a lot of emotional depth in this relationship. There is the potential for the Lilith conjunct moon synastry relationship to be extremely transformative if both people are evolved enough to work through their emotions. It will bring up all of the difficult feelings that are unresolved within each person.

Lilith conjunct moon pulls all of those negative, subconscious emotions to the surface. This type of relationship is sometimes necessary to bring all emotional wounds out of the dark.

Sometimes, if there are other aspects to support it, the Lilith conjunct moon aspect can indicate emotional obsession, though this is only in the most extreme examples. More likely, the aspect indicates a lot of emotional turmoil, similar to the Tower card in Tarot.

The moon individual almost always feels uncomfortable in this relationship because of what the Lilith person represents, but this is a perfect chance for the moon individual to look at these feelings and dig into them on a personal level.

There is also a tendency for the Lilith person to bulldoze over the moon person. For this relationship to be successful, the Lilith individual will need to learn to hold back and allow the moon person time and space to deal with their emotions.

Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect means that one person typically feels shame about how the other partner thinks or communicates. Either partner might feel shame; sometimes both do simultaneously.

Even though something about the Mercury person’s mind attracts the Lilith person, they might also find it constricting at the same time. Simultaneously, the Mercury person may feel put off by the Lilith individual’s approach to sex.

Within the context of a sexual relationship, dirty talk is quite likely to occur with the Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect.

The Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect creates a bit of a catch-22 in relationships. The mind is a turn-on, but one or both partners are also embarrassed by the other person’s mind at certain times. They feel an attraction to the way their partner thinks yet they also want to escape it.

This Lilith conjunct Mercury synastry aspect can also indicate difficulty communicating or mind games.

If the couple truly wants to progress and deal with their own issues surrounding Lilith (as this relationship is simply reflecting their own issues back at them) then couples therapy can be beneficial. The couple needs to learn new communication patterns before the relationship will feel completely safe.

Lilith conjunct Venus synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Venus synastry aspect is always very intense, like any other Lilith aspect. I find that it’s most applicable in romantic relationships and might not even make an impact in other relationships since Lilith conjunct Venus is inherently romantic.

There is typically a lot of physical attraction with Lilith conjunct Venus in synastry. The Venus person becomes especially attached to the Lilith person; it can be hard for the Venus person to separate from the relationship as time goes on.

There is a palpable, intense attraction that never seems to go away. If the relationship turns sour, it might be the type that drags on and on with no clear reason.

Typically, the Lilith person in the relationship tries to maintain their independence while the Venus person wants more. There is almost always an imbalance. It’s almost as if the Venus individual is under a spell.

I find that there’s often something about this relationship that is taboo or secret. For example, the partners may have a large age difference, a huge difference in class, be from different parts of the world, etc. Even if others know about the relationship, it always feels a bit unbalanced to the partners. 

The initial spark is extremely strong with the Lilith conjunct Venus synastry relationship, but it can quickly turn to obsession. The Venus person gets trapped under the spell of romance and the Lilith individual may rebel against this by acting out. This likely will not dissuade the Venus individual because they are simply captivated.

The Lilith person usually enjoys the attention of the Venus person (romance, physical affection, etc.) but does not return this affection equally. The Venus person can’t stay away no matter how hard they try, even though they aren’t getting what they need. The Lilith individual may also feel that the relationship isn’t right, but can’t quite leave.

It’s not often that these relationships work out, but if other aspects in the chart support it then it is possible. Both parties need to work on clear communication and setting boundaries and expectations. 

There is an air of mystery surrounding the Lilith conjunct Venus relationship that needs to be dissipated in order to truly work on the relationship.

Lilith conjunct Mars synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Mars synastry aspect means that this relationship is made up of two fighters. This isn’t always a bad thing, however. This relationship can be really passionate, fiery, and exciting.

The Lilith person might have trouble with issues surrounding desirability. Often with Lilith conjunct Mars in synastry, the Lilith individual’s self-esteem is tied up with how desirable he/she is in the eyes of the Mars partner.

If this relationship is played out sexually then both individuals experience a fiery, passionate sex life, although the Mars person might be slightly more content. The Lilith individual may feel that the sex is good but there’s some element of fire or taboo that’s simply missing.

Sometimes, the Lilith person can feel like the Mars person dominates the relationship simply because they allow them too. The Lilith person feels the unconscious need to allow the Mars person to make decisions but then may be secretly upset.

The Mars individual is probably a bit afraid of the Lilith individual in some way. I find that the Lilith person is often fiery when angry, while can scare the Mars person, but the Lilith person is instead afraid of losing the Mars individual.

Additionally, Lilith will almost always bring out anger in the Mars person that they didn’t know excited. This can scare the Mars person as they see a new side of themselves.

At it’s worst, the Lilith conjunct Mars synastry relationship has the potential for verbal abuse, explosive fights, physical violence, and general aggression. Of course, this is not always the case. Most likely, the Lilith person will end up feeling jealous or sexually frustrated which creates pent up feelings of rage.

Regardless of how the Lilith conjunct Mars synastry relationship manifests, this relationship will always be full of energy. There are usually power struggles as well, although both people can overcome this with a bit of work.

Communication is extremely important for this couple. Before things spiral out of control, it’s almost always necessary for the Lilith conjunct Mars in synastry couple to try couples’ therapy or some other intervention that will teach them skills they simply don’t have.

At it’s best, this relationship is full of healthy competition and passion.

Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry:

When you have the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect, Lilith is magnified. Jupiter expands anything that it touches, so there is a distinct sexual energy to the relationship, especially at first.

The Lilith person may feel the effects of this sexual magnification more than the Jupiter person because it is their own sexuality that is being expanded. 

In turn, the Lilith partner challenges the Jupiter partners beliefs. Lilith conjunct Jupiter in synastry doesn’t necessarily mean that both partners believe the same things, but it is a wonderful aspect if you want to transform your beliefs. 

The Jupiter partner pushes against the beliefs of the Lilith partner to expand their own knowledge and faith. This can be in any area, including spirituality, religion, philosophy, science, world-views, etc.

Even though the Jupiter conjunct Lilith synastry aspect feels very sexual at first, it’s actually all about beliefs, morals, ethics, and wisdom as time goes on. It really is an aspect relating to the mind and abstract thought. Expect there to be a lot of self-discovery in this relationship.

For example, the Jupiter individual might come into the relationship with a religious view of life. Through learning about the Lilith individual’s beliefs (let’s say they center around science, for the purpose of this example), the Jupiter person is pushed to question their own assumptions, confront their opinions of the taboos that the Lilith person presents, and develop their personal view on these topics.

This is just an example; the same situation can happen relating to any of these “bigger” topics. I recently saw this happen with a couple (who have the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect) regarding politics.

Because Lilith is generally taboo, the Jupiter person often believes that the Lilith person’s thoughts and opinions are “bad,” at least at first. It is only through learning about the other that they come to realize they rejected these sort of beliefs simply out of fear.

The Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect is a great placement to have, if you’re up for doing self-work. It’s a super educational aspect that will bring a lot of good to the relationship and to both people individually.

Sometimes, the differences are too great and the partners have to separate, but there is still a good amount learned from the Lilith conjunct Jupiter synastry aspect.

Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect can be dark and difficult. Saturn is all about structure and order, while Lilith is freedom and taboos.

In the beginning, there is a dark and deep sexual attraction. The relationship is not only “out of bounds,” as Lilith relationships often are, but also has quite a bit to do with karma. Both partners will feel the effects of this.

The purpose of the Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is to show the Saturn person where and how they are too rigid. This aspect will ideally teach the Saturn partner how to bend and why loosening up isn’t a bad thing.

In turn, the Saturn partner can teach the Lilith person that sometimes control is good. In the area of this conjunction, the Lilith person is fearful of their freedom being limited. This is exact with that Saturn individual will automatically do, which can cause problems, but this dynamic can also teach the Lilith individual that structure can be a good thing.

At its worst, this aspect can make for a horrific relationship experience. The Saturn person becomes more and more fearful as they are unable to get a handle on the relationship and on the Lilith partner. They might feel like their life is spinning out of control; they will do anything to get it back.

Meanwhile, the Lilith partner rebels against any and all control that the Saturn partner tries to exert. They feel this fear descending and push back against it, prompting the Saturn partner to become even more angry and afraid.

This Lilith conjunct Saturn synastry aspect is a heavy one, but it can certainly help both partners to work through necessary karma and come out stronger on the other side.

Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry:

Lilith conjunct Uranus in synastry typically means that the Lilith person unlocks a new side to the Uranus person. This is a side of themselves that they can’t show in society for some reason, but they can be themselves in this way with the Lilith individual.

Sometimes, this may mean that Lilith brings out Uranus’ inner rebel, but it can also mean that the Uranus person is allowed to show a different piece of themselves that may be soft, angry, competitive, nurturing, or any other quality, depending on the individual chart.

There is an instant attraction with the Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry aspect. The couple will literally see sparks fly. As the relationship progresses, the couple may feel that they can do anything together, but there can also be a taboo edge to the relationship because it feels so different from societal norms.

Uranus may in turn teach the Lilith person to let go of past situations that no longer further their evolution. The Lilith person has a tendency to hold onto past hurts in this area, but the Uranus person can help them to see another way.

If there are other negative aspects influencing this Lilith conjunct Uranus synastry aspect, then the relationship may turn too free. There may be some taboos around freedom and monogamy or hurt and anger surrounding the relationship.

Alternatively, the Uranus person may desire what the Lilith person offers but also be afraid of the intensity they bring.

Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry aspect can create a lot of illusion in a relationship. When these partners first meet, it might feel like a dream within a dream.

I find that there is often some psychic connection between the Lilith conjunct Neptune partners, but there can also be a lot of false illusion. It might be difficult for both people to see what’s real and what’s false, especially within the relationship.

There is often something slightly taboo about this relationship, but it’s more illusive than other Lilith aspects. For example, the partners may have grown up as cousins but are not technically related, or there may be an age gap that “looks” bad to others but is actually not that large.

Lilith conjunct Neptune in synastry is not a very angry aspect. Instead, the danger is that both partners will forget to live in the real world because they are so enthralled by their relationship and the feelings that they get from it.

The Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry relationship reveals all of the darkest desires. Sometimes, these will feel more like addictions. There is a danger of the partners becoming addicted to each other or to the relationship, but they can also be addicted to substances; this addiction may be fueled through the relationship in some way.

The goal with the Lilith conjunct Neptune synastry aspect is to embrace the psychic, sensitive side of the relationship while remaining grounded.

Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry aspect is extremely intense and karmic. This aspect is either wonderfully transformative or terribly dangerous.

There is always a strong attraction between this couple. Both the Lilith individual and the Pluto person show their dark sides in this relationship. This chemistry is both in and out of bed.

If this couple is able to learn from each other and understand this mutual energy then the relationship can be transformative for the better. It is a difficult process and won’t just come naturally.

Sometimes, power and destruction overtake the relationship and cause major problems. This relationship can easily turn angry or violent. The Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry couple may find themselves plagued by arguments and the need to release pent up rage.

One or both of the Lilith conjunct Pluto partners can become manipulative, erratic, or possessive. This can be the makings of a really nasty breakup. If this happens, it’s likely that the Pluto person will hold a grudge for a long time.

Sometimes, Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry aspects can indicate affairs. It is often the Lilith person who would have affairs, though not always. This is only the case if other aspects in the chart support it.

Lilith can learn about truth and honest from Pluto and Pluto can learn about equality and respect from Lilith. While Lilith tends to flake out when things get hard, Pluto becomes obsessive or hurt. They can each learn from each other and find a middle ground to heal.

For this Lilith conjunct Pluto synastry relationship to work, each partner needs to make a clear effort to acknowledge the needs of the other. Couples’ therapy can be very helpful to heal this relationship.

Lilith conjunct Ascendant synastry:

The Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry conjunction causes a strong, immediate attraction between both people. There is a magnetic energy between the couple from the first moment they meet.

The Lilith person in particular is attracted to the ascendant partner’s looks, body, and general physicality. They will definitely feel the sexual tension.

This Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry relationship is often very public at first. Both partners might be physical and showy around others, or they might just be in the limelight in some way. This typically dies down after some time, since the Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry aspect is strongest upon first meeting.

The relationship can also be a bit taboo at first. I often see those with the Lilith conjunct ascendant synastry aspect have difficulty introducing their partner to their family and friends. There may be something taboo about their choice or even about the relationship’s energy. Again, this dissipates over time.

The Lilith conjunct ascendant relationship often feels forbidden, even if it’s not. One or both of the partners typically feel guilty about entering into a relationship; they may still be attached to an ex partner or even a past life experience that they can’t completely let go of.

Typically, the ascendant person is both intimidated by and attracted to the Lilith partner. They might see the Lilith person as a bit dark or scary, but they’re also intrigued by the energy. It probably is different from anything the ascendant person has seen before.

The relationship is extremely primal at first. This is probably different and maybe frightening for the ascendant individual.

However, the ascendant person has a lot of the same subconscious impulses as the Lilith person, they have just not accessed them yet. This new relationship is frightening because the Lilith person pulls out a new side of the ascendant person in a very public way.

This Lilith conjunct ascendant aspect is tricky to navigate, especially in the beginning stages of relationship, but it doesn’t dictate whether or not a relationship will be successful in the long term. Shadow sides have a lot of impact on this relationship, but this can also be a great opportunity for both partners to heal themselves from the inside.

Lilith conjunct Descendant synastry:

The Lilith conjunct descendant synastry aspect means that the descendant partner is especially attracted to the dark side in the Lilith partner. They represent much of what the descendant person wants in a partner, but these qualities show up in a taboo, mysterious way.

The Lilith partner might find their most taboo qualities showing up around the descendant partner. Lilith conjunct descendent in synastry really brings out those taboo qualities within the Lilith partner. The descendent person might either like these qualities, be afraid of them, or both.

Sometimes, the Lilith conjunct descendant synastry aspect can also mean that the descendent partner has blocked their own sexuality, so they look for a partner who is more sexual to compensate. This is not always the case with the Lilith conjunct descendant aspect; it shows up about half of the time.

Lilith conjunct Midheaven synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Midheaven synastry aspect often means that there is something taboo about the relationship, especially concerning public image. 

One person may desire something from the other or look up to the other when it comes to image. Typically, the Lilith person looks up to the Midheaven person, but not always.

For example, the Midheaven person may be quite wealthy or prestigious, so the Lilith person is unable to separate the individual from their own desires to obtain money or status.

Lilith conjunct Midheaven in synastry can also mean that one or both people have a deep obsession with having a certain image. The specifics of this will depend on the sign that the Lilith conjunct Midheaven sits in.

Alternatively, there may be something taboo about the public image that the couple creates together. For example, the couple could work in adult entertainment together.

Lilith conjunct IC synastry:

The Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect means that the relationship brings out the dark side of the IC person. This isn’t necessarily bad; it’s simply the side of themselves that they felt they had to hide in childhood. 

The relationship can also reveal the IC person’s raw sexuality that they didn’t feel as a child.

In general, the Lilith individual helps the IC person to access those forbidden parts of themself that they locked away in childhood. That is, of course, when this relationship is healthy and between two consenting adults.

The Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect works well if and only if neither party is obsessive or overpowering towards the other.

If there are power imbalances in the Lilith conjunct IC synastry relationship, it can mean that one person treats the other like a child and forces them into taboo situations that they might not enjoy. At its worst, the Lilith conjunct IC synastry aspect indicates sexual abuse.

Lilith conjunct North Node synastry:

The Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect means that both partners recognize each other from a past life. This is a fated relationship, in a way.

As soon as it begins, this relationship can be really intense. There are many issues from the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry couple to get through, but there is potential for a lovely relationship if they’re able to effectively do the work.

This Lilith conjunct North Node synastry relationship instantly pushes both partners to grow. This can be quite unpleasant, even though it’s technically for the good of both.

The North Node person will especially have trouble and may quickly fall back into old habits, even those of past lifetimes when the couple was previously together.

This North Node individual might conceal aspects of the relationship or hide the whole relationship all-together. They are the one who is more inclined to lying and betrayal, while the Lilith individual is more likely to become obsessive and hang on no matter what.

This is because the North Node individual is being pushed by Lilith to move towards the Node, but this can be very hard to do, especially when someone like Lilith is involved. It’s easy for the North Node person to get scared and retreat.

In general, the Lilith conjunct Node Node synastry relationship is permeated by Lilith. It can be hard for both people to stick it out when they’re constantly confronted by Lilith qualities.

There is an addictive quality to this relationship. Even though both people might retreat at times, it’s difficult to completely separate. 

With the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect, the issue is often that neither person has effectively worked on their shadow self and healed their inner child. This is a karmic reminder from the Universe that this work must be done.

The sign and house that the Lilith conjunct North Node synastry aspect sits in will show where and how each person must work through issues relating to the shadow self.

The couple can choose to do this work together and remain in the relationship, or they may need to split apart and do this work individually if the relationship becomes too toxic.

Lilith conjunct South Node synastry:

The Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect reveals a past life connection with Lilith themes. The couple may have experiences sexuality, controversy, taboos, psychological distress, or other Lilith type things in a past life.

Generally, these two were either enemies in this past life or not allowed to be together. These taboo themes (of forbidden fruit or hatred) carry forward into the current lifetime with the Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect.

It’s very easy for both partners to fall back into old patterns with this aspect. There is a deep karmic bond between them and a lot of history, so they can trigger each other’s dark sides.

The goal with Lilith conjunct South Node is not to fall but into old patterns but to transcend them. This relationship is karmic, yet the purpose is to learn to love each other and to release the negative aspect of Lilith themes.

If the partners were enemies in a past life then that wound must be healed between them. If their relationship was forbidden or taboo, the goal is to be unapologetically themselves this time around.

The attraction with the Lilith conjunct South Node synastry aspect is often very strong and will last through time.

Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry:

With Lilith conjunct Chiron in synastry, the Lilith person will continually trigger the Chiron’s person’s wound by expressing “taboo” qualities in the sign that Lilith is in.

In some way, the Lilith person’s wild side reminds the Chiron person of their wound and how they were wounded.

The Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry aspect can be a difficult, painful placement for both people (especially the Chiron individual), but it is also an opportunity for the Chiron person to heal.

While the Lilith conjunct Chiron synastry aspect isn’t necessarily the seal of death for a relationship, it does mean that both individuals will need to put in a great deal of work to have a successful and happy partnership.

Lilith conjunct Juno synastry:

With Lilith conjunct Juno in the synastry chart, the Juno person probably finds some of the Lilith person’s traits alluring, at least in the beginning.

The Juno individual sees some of the qualities that they want in a long term relationship within the Lilith individual, however these qualities all have a slightly darker hue than the Juno person really wants.

Because of this, once the initial magnetic attraction has faded, the Lilith person can quickly become overwhelming for the Juno individual. Long term, this can grow into a larger problem.

For example, the Juno individual might want a marriage that is based on spirituality and kindness. While the Lilith person has these qualities, they might also be a bit delusional or have an addictive nature.

Ideally, the couple is able to work with these differences and find common ground. The Lilith person has much darker energy than the Juno individual (in the area of the sign and house that the Lilith conjunct Juno synastry conjunction sits in) but there may be some common ground that can hold the relationship together.

Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry:

A Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry relationship will have taboo elements around the idea of mothering. If you’re in a Lilith conjunct Ceres relationship, you may want to feel cared for or mothered, or you may instead want to feel needed as a mother would.

There may be an obsession with being cared for or caring for others that can feel intense and slightly taboo with the Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry aspect. 

At its best, this aspect allows both partners to learn how to care for themselves and each other in different, more effective ways. They might realize that the way they “mothered” themselves isn’t working and that their partner can show them a better way.

At its worst, the Lilith conjunct Ceres synastry aspect means that one or both of the partners will become overly needy, reliant, codependent, or controlling.

Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry:

The Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry aspect is an anomaly. There is a feeling of pure, fated love between the couple, but there’s also something taboo about the relationship.

With Lilith conjunct Vesta, both partners are probably very devoted to each other, if the rest of the chart supports this. They might have known that they were meant for each other at a young age or as soon as they met. Alternatively, they’re both devoted to something else (such as religion, science, a hobby, an activity, a cause, etc.) and work together in their passion for it.

Although the energy between the Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple is pure, there is also a sense that they shouldn’t be together. Maybe their relationship is banned by society or by the church, or maybe they bonded over something taboo.

The difficulty for this Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple is to reconcile what they feel (pure, sacred love) with what society says about their relationship (that it is taboo or forbidden).

Sex between this couple can be incredible. There is a sort of hyper-awareness between each person. The sexual act can feel very ritualistic, important, or even spiritual with the Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry couple.

Alternatively, there is a dark side to this aspect. Lilith conjunct Vesta can also mean that one partner, usually the Lilith person, is obsessed with the idea of purity and virginity. This may be what attracts them to the Vesta person.

At its worst, this relationship can be based around a terrible power imbalance. This is not always the case; most couples fit into only one of these Lilith conjunct Vesta synastry archetypes. 

Lilith conjunct Lilith synastry:

While the Lilith conjunct Lilith synastry aspect isn’t powerful enough to keep a relationship going without other aspects, it does create a strong initial attraction.

Lilith conjunct Lilith means that both people see pieces of their own Lilith in the other. It’s like looking into a mirror.

This can mean that each partner sees the positive sides to Lilith in the other, especially those that aren’t accepted in society. This can be really helpful because the relationship might become a safe place to express these qualities, since both people have them.

Alternatively, each partner may see bits of the worst of their own Lilith in the other person. These will be the qualities that they each want to run from, but they’re confronted with these “taboo” pieces of Lilith face to face in the relationship.

I find that Lilith conjunct Lilith in synastry can be really helpful if used properly. It allows both partners to grow and to face their own demons.

If both people aren’t able to make use of this and do self work within the context of the relationship then it can escalate to become a pretty nasty, difficult partnership. Each will start hating those Lilith qualities in the other and might eventually only see those qualities, especially if there aren’t other strong aspects to hold the relationship together.

Earth Sign Astrology | Earth Signs vs. Sun Signs In The Birth Chart

Earth Sign Astrology | Earth Signs vs. Sun Signs In The Birth Chart

In astrology we discuss the sun signs, which represents the ego or the outer personality—but what astrologers often fail to mention is the existence of the inner child, the earth signs.

In earth sign astrology, the earth sign is the mirror image of the sun sign—it is everything we are on the inside that makes us develop into our sun sign.

You may notice that as a child, you were more your earth sign than you were your sun sign. Your earth sign rules your inner self—the deepest and most hurt parts of you, and this is the inner child that the sun sign tries to protect.

In psychology we discuss the inner child often. Inner child work is key to understanding the outer psyche, but what we don’t discuss is how our inner children often differ, and how some peoples are more protected than others.

Remember that if you have other placements in the same sign, or conjunct to your earth sign, your inner child is going to be more prevalent and less protected in your personality. If your earth sign stands alone in your chart, then it is likely that only you know about it—and you protect it at all costs.

It is important to remember that earth signs are in the same degrees as sun signs, but in the opposite sign. This is similar to the ascendant and descendant, which represent how you appear to the world and what you expect from others, the midheaven and IC which represent the public self and the childhood stressors, and the north and south node, which represent the past and future selves.

Similar to these polarities, when looking at earth sign astrology, the earth signs and the sun signs show the inner children and the adult egos that develop to protect these children.

Earth Signs In The Signs:

Here are all 12 earth signs through the signs of the zodiac. Remember that each of these earth signs sits in the opposite sign from the person’s sun.

Aries Earth Sign

If you have your sun in Libra, that means that your earth sign is in Aries in the opposite house from where your sun is.

In earth sign astrology, having an Aries earth sign means that your inner child is rambunctious, energetic, and wild. As a child, you likely had an un-tamable mentality, liked sports and games, and were often immature and selfish.

Aries earth sign children are the ones who, when they dislike the way the game is going, take their ball and walk away so that the other children cannot play anymore. They like things to be their way, and will not settle for less—especially in early childhood.

They were the boss of their friend groups and often did not develop emotionally until later on. They love sports and competitive activities, but care less about winning than they do attention and glory.

As they develop into adulthood, Aries earth sign people likely still feel this way on the inside. Aries earth signs might have a hard time empathizing with people in the real world, and still want things to be the way they want them.

This often caused them pain in childhood, as people would have viewed them as selfish and unmanageable. This kind of pain caused the Aries earth sign to “other” this part of themselves and become more Libran on the outside.

The Libra Adult

The Aries earth sign developed Libran qualities of peaceableness, acceptance, and tolerance to help temper their true Arian nature.

Aries earth sign people become more easy-going, relaxed, and often struggle with decision making because they do not want to come across as overbearing or hostile, the way they did in childhood.

However, the inner child is the true nature—the Aries earth sign inner child still longs to be let out to play every once in a while, so it is important to let them have their turn calling the shots and making decisions.

Taurus Earth Sign

If your sun is in Scorpio, this means that you have a Taurus earth sign in the same degree, but the opposite house.

In Earth sign astrology, the Taurus earth sign child is stubborn, fixed and rigid. They like their home life, probably hate going to school and leaving their home, and don’t want to make too many friends.

The Taurus earth sign is extremely loyal to the family and friends that they do have, but they have a difficult time in disagreements because they cannot admit their wrongdoings, especially as a young child.

The Taurus earth sign child is not very emotionally developed in youth, but they have a strong sense of morality and can often be judgmental to others when they lapse in morals. As they mature, they develop rapidly emotionally, and use this sensitive side to protect their inner child, which may still be judgmental, though the adult would never show it.

They are rigid and not at all easy-going. These children find one thing that they like to play with, and this becomes their favorite thing. They are the same throughout childhood, never really changing their identity or experimenting with new things.

This is the kind of child that, if they did not want to go somewhere in the first place, they will not leave the car and go in—and would rather throw a fit than do what others want. As the Taurus earth sign develops into the Scorpio adult, they are less rigid, although they likely still have that inner part of them that does not want to go.

Most importantly, the Taurus earth sign child is very vain. They likely judge themselves and others based on looks and possessions. Who has the best toys, is the best at sports, and has the most friends, is very important to this person. This can lead to feelings of inadequacy in the Taurus earth sign child as they begin to feel like they don’t add up in these areas.

The Taurus child often felt stuck in their life due to their home-bound nature and this caused them significant pain. As an adult, the Scorpio sun will look for thrilling experiences that take them out of the comfort zone as a means to push back against their nature.

The Scorpio Adult:

The Scorpio sun person may struggle with vanity issues in life, although they are much kinder to others than they are to themselves. The judgments they made in childhood may follow them into adulthood, as the Taurus earth sign inner child tells them that they are still not good enough.

This may lead the Scorpio sun to seek validation through sex, aggression, exercise, and anger. It is important that after these experiences, the Scorpio sun person can retreat back into their inner child and have some alone time.

Gemini Earth Sign

In earth sign astrology, having a Sagittarius sun means that you have the earth sign in Gemini in the opposite house, but the same degree.

The Gemini earth sign child is very playful, easy-going, and talkative. They are chatty with strangers, and probably developed language skills very early in childhood. Every person they encounter, they care deeply for—they see all people as valuable and necessary.

As a child, they may have been scolded for “talking too much,” and people may have found them annoying to be around. This energy translated into developing the Sagittarius sun, which protects them from those people who did not care about them in return.

The Gemini earth sign child was open and vulnerable to the world, believing that If they could just be nice to everyone then the world would be a better place. They picked up on the art of small talk, and were likely nice to everyone at school, making them well liked in many instances.

However, as they got older, this chatty nature made them less liked. As things began to get complicated and cliques began to form, the Gemini earth sign child did not know where they fit, so they became somewhat of a drifter and began to develop the qualities of the Sagittarius adult.

The Sagittarius adult protects this inner Gemini earth sign child by focusing on the big picture rather than each unique conversation with the individual.

The Gemini earth sign inner child is so enthralled and vulnerable to the world that they make every conversation the most important one they ever had, and cannot take anything with a grain of salt.

The Sagittarius Adult:

As an adult, the Sagittarius sun person only takes what works for them. They rarely rely on other people’s information or opinions, though they are open to hearing them all. The Sagittarius sun person focuses on the greater meaning of things rather than each single person, which helps their Gemini earth sign inner child to not be so hurt by the things people say.

It is important for the Sagittarius adult to not cut out their inner child too much—the Gemini earth sign inner child gives them compassion for the world around them, and is the fundamental reason that they are the way they are.

Cancer Earth Sign

When the sun is in Capricorn, that indicates that the earth sign is in Cancer in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the cancer earth sign child is extremely sensitive to the world around them. They likely empathize with everyone and everything including animals, other families, and even their own parents.

The Cancer earth sign child has the rare capability of parenting in early childhood—meaning that they may provide support to siblings or even parents or caretakers. People often perceive this Cancer earth sign child as “too soft and sensitive,” as they cry over a lot of things and can be very hurt by the world.

Cancer earth signs likely preferred home life to school, as they found other children mean and abrasive. The Cancer earth sign child was incapable of deciphering whether something was true or not, so when someone said something mean to them, they believed it wholeheartedly and took it to heart.

The Capricorn Sun:

The Capricorn sun adult attempts to objectively look at the world and see whether people are good or bad. They protect the sensitive inner child earth signs by providing a tough exterior, staying strong in the face of hurt, and providing structure so that they do not “over-give”.

The Capricorn adult likely still feels like the Cancer earth sign on the inside—and when they begin to feel over-sensitive, they attempt to go back to the cold and stoic nature of the Capricorn to protect the inner child from those distressing feelings.

What the ego doesn’t understand is that the inner child is affected, regardless of how cold and stoic the Capricorn sun is in the face of adversity. The child still feels all the pain and hurt, so rather than protecting the child by remaining cold to the world, the Capricorn sun should attempt to find ways to soothe the child and help it to deal with those emotions.

The Cancer earth sign inner child is one of the most difficult placements to have, as it represents the softness and vulnerability that comes with childhood, while the Capricorn sun represents the outer layer of protection developed in adulthood.

Leo Earth Sign

People with their suns in Aquarius also have their earth signs in Leo in exact degrees, but in the opposite house.

The Leo earth sign child is playful, excited, dramatic, and indulgent in life. They may want to be the star of their family, or innately feel like they are the star. They crave love and attention at an early age, but it is likely that this is the cause of their pain—leading them to become more Aquarian in nature.

In earth sign astrology, the Leo earth sign represents a very playful and outgoing child. They were cheerful, fun, and adventurous— and were very independent from a young age.

They did not need a lot from the people around them to feel important—the Leo earth sign child knew they were important regardless of what others thought.

The Leo earth sign focused a lot on personal relationships. They put everything they had into their relationship with their parents, their siblings, and their very close friends, and unfortunately, this kind of love and adoration was not always returned.

The Leo earth sign child looked at their parents as superheroes, and when the parents did not live up to this expectation, the Leo earth sign child was extremely hurt. It is likely that with this placement, there was some kind of wealth or status issue in the child’s early life which led to a lot of pain and heartache.

Ultimately, the Leo inner child gave their love, compassion, and admiration to many people that did not return the favor. This caused great pain in their life, which led them to develop more detached “Aquarian” qualities.

The Aquarius Adult:

The Aquarius suns attempt to protect their earth signs, or inner children, by remaining detached from relationships and loved ones, and focusing less on intimate bonds and more on objective experiences.

The Aquarius adult feels that getting too close to someone, and relying on them too much, may only lead to pain and anguish.

However, on the inside, they still feel these feelings when someone does not return the love they know they deserve. The Aquarius adult protects the inner child by trying to look at things objectively rather than emotionally, but often to no avail as the inner child is still hurt by the world around them.

Virgo Earth Sign

Pisces sun people have their earth signs in Virgo in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Virgo earth sign person likely grew up in a very rigid or judgmental household. The rules of the world mattered a lot and there was a great focus on perfection and living up to the expectations of the parent—which the child never felt they could accomplish.

The Virgo earth sign child probably struggled with self-image as a child and could be extremely judgmental and critical of themselves and others. Virgo earth signs are likely to notice the smallest details about people, and, especially in childhood, they point out these details.

While this overly critical nature is something they learned through their life experiences and from their parents, it does not bode well with peers and friends. This judgmental attitude leads to wounding in the Virgo earth sign child as people begin to shun them and turn away from them for being unkind—even if the Virgo earth signs believed they were helping.

The Virgo earth sign inner child is also very judgmental of themselves (as well as of others) because of this perceptive nature. They learn to despise themselves for rather insignificant details and they believe that anything less than perfection is unacceptable.

As life goes on, this attitude causes Virgo earth signs nothing but pain—they have to learn to embrace a more Piscean outlook to protect themselves.

The Pisces Adult

As the Virgo earth sign child develops into the Pisces sun adult, they begin to put a shield over this nature. This shield develops into empathy and kindness; they start to focus less on the rigid details of life and more on the bigger picture.

Deep down, the inner Virgo earth sign child still exists. The Pisces sun person may find themselves being overly judgmental and critical of people around them, only to reel back in their true nature and cover it with a mask of acceptance and approval.

This Virgo earth sign child may come out in the form of humor every now and again in the Pisces adult person. Pisces sun sign folks have quick wit and can be detail oriented in their humor. When they make these strikingly perceptive jokes and comments, this is their inner child surfacing and having some fun with their true nature.

While it is important for survival that the Virgo earth sign inner child is protected from the world, the Pisces sun person may be too afraid to let this child out to play that they allow other things control their nature instead. They may turn to alcohol, drugs, or depression to try to suppress this critical inner nature.

Libra Earth Sign

People with the sun in Aries have their earth signs in Libra in the same degrees and opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, people with the Libra earth sign just wanted peace as a child. They would have done anything to make the people around them happy, and in doing so, likely gave up their sense of self or what they wanted as children.

These were the kinds of children who were “over-sharers.” Libra earth signs never took the toys they wanted to play with if they thought it would cause a fuss with another child. The worst thing for a Libra earth child was a fight—this meant they had failed.

These children are deeply sympathetic and caring for others, and believe in justice and loyalty. They feel guilt more strongly than other children, and it is likely that in youth the Libra earth sign felt either guilt or shame surrounding most of their actions.

The Libra earth sign child was soft and agreeable. In youth, they were the glue of the family, keeping everyone together and giving up anything necessary to keep the family unit. This, of course, is the source of their pain.

The Libra earth child had to learn that life is not fair and equal, and that sometimes, people want power for the sake of wanting it. Their guilt about hurting other people became so prevalent that, if they had allowed it to, it would have swallowed them whole. Libra earth sign children had to learn at a very young age that they could not make everyone happy—but this hurt them deeply.

In learning this lesson, Libra earth sign children needed to develop qualities of the Aries sun adult in order to become less sensitive to the world.

On an inner level, they likely still feel guilt associated with their perception of others’ emotions. In order to do what they must in life, they had to learn to separate from these emotions and focus on themselves. In this sense, the Aries sun person was developed.

The Aries Adult:

The Aries sun person appears selfish on the outside—sometimes rash and rude, but that is only because the inner child is feeling guilty and inadequate. These Arian qualities were developed to protect the Libra earth sign on the inside, though they can be very helpful.

Aries sun people are still extremely loyal and loving deep down, and if you do not make them feel guilty, they will likely let out their Libra passive nature which is intuitive and caring.

Scorpio Earth Sign

If you have your sun sign in Taurus, then you have your earth in Scorpio in exact degrees but in the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Scorpio earth sign person was extremely soft and sensitive in youth. They likely went wherever they were told, played with extreme imagination, and appeared vulnerable to their parents and those around them.

Scorpio earth sign children are very malleable and transformative in youth. They likely go through many phases, never being too attached to one thing—but they fully throw themselves into a different identity or phase.

The Scorpio earth sign child may appear to be very psychic in youth, experiencing situations and phenomenon’s that would not likely occur to others. Because of this experience, they probably do not mind alone time—they are never really alone and have many imaginary friends to play with.

In youth, the Scorpio earth sign’s parents probably took them anywhere and everywhere and they may not have felt that they had a solid basis of what “home” was. This may have led them to feel less important than other family members, as they were so easy-going and felt that it was being taken advantage of.

Scorpio earth sign children are extremely open and vulnerable and may cry easily when hurt either physically or emotionally.  People may have judged this, calling the child overly soft, which caused them significant pain in life. This led them to develop the qualities of the Taurus adult.

The Taurus Adult

The tough Taurus exterior protects the Scorpio earth sign inner child by providing it with stability and a home. The Taurus exterior often forgets to nurture the inner child and to let it feel the emotions—it rather pushes the emotions down and forgets about them, which in turn, only hurts the Scorpio earth sign child more.

In focusing so much on protection, the Taurus adult may lose the innate ability to connect with the universe.  While the Taurus sun develops primarily as protection for this soft and sensitive inner child, it also dims the light that the child had when it becomes too fixed and rigid.

It is important for the Taurus sun to allow the Scorpio child out to play every once in a while, so they can realign with their highest purpose and allow information from the universe.

Sagittarius Earth Sign

If you have your sun in Gemini, then your earth sign is in Sagittarius in exact degrees in the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Sagittarius earth sign child was very solitary, wise, and happy on their own. Unlike other children who needed friends to play with, the Sagittarius earth sign child was fully content being on their own for most of their childhood and did not need friends, but rather craved experiences.

This was the kind of child that could float from house to house, be nice and kind to everyone, but really longed to see the world and get the most they could out of it. These Sagittarius earth signs are adventurous and fun at heart, though they do not need others the way that others may need them.

The Sagittarius earth sign child really would’ve gone anywhere, with anyone, as long as the place they were going offered a new experience. People around them picked up on this energy and began to dislike them as they often felt used by this child.

This is the source of these Sagittarius earth signs’ pain; they had to adapt and learn to care for others. These lessons created the Gemini Sun person—the individual who navigates the world by becoming everyone’s best friend.

The Gemini Adult:

The Gemini sun individual protects the adventurous inner child by interacting with people. These interactions hide their true nature and make them more likely to be accepted in the world.

People will often find that Gemini sun people are “fake,” but this is not the case. They are just protecting their Sagittarius earth sign inner child, who cares less about people and more about experiences.

That inner child still exists within the Gemini sun person. The Gemini sun person may long for new experiences or adventures, or they may treat life itself like an adventure. They develop incredible people skills and intellect in order to help them achieve these goals.

The Sagittarius earth sign child lives within the Gemini exoskeleton, always longing for more experiences and less people.

The Gemini adult must remember to let the child out to play. This can be done by adventures alone, or simply space from other people to help the Sagittarius earth sign child recuperate from all of the work that the Gemini adult does.

Capricorn Earth Sign

People with sun signs in Cancer have their earth signs in Capricorn in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Capricorn earth sign child is very stoic and strong in youth. They do not exhibit many emotions, and rather turn their focus to other things, like competition and glory.  These Capricorn earth sign children are likely very good at what they do, whether it be sports, academics, or any kind of competitive event.

Capricorn earth sign children likely grew up in households where glory was expected. Their parents cared more about achievements than emotions. Capricorn earth sign children tried to buy their parents’ love and approval by being the best at what they did.

Where they succeeded in achievements, Capricorn earth sign children were lacking in compassion. People called them cold, controlling, and dismissive. They were not the nurturing older siblings that the Cancer adult became.

Instead, these Capricorn earth signs were cold and controlling. If they did not like the game that was being played, they would simply force everyone else to play a game they did want. People called them bossy and annoying.

Capricorn earth sign children learned to temper this cold nature by learning compassion. As adults, they developed emotional Cancer qualities such as compassion, acceptance, and love.

Deep down, the Capricorn earth person still wants to control the situation. As a parent, they may come across as a helicopter parent or may be overly involved in competitive events for their children. This is because their true nature, the Capricorn earth inner child, still views the world this way.

The Cancer Adult:

The Cancer sun adult tries to have compassion for the world around them. They attempt to protect their “cold” inner child by appearing and acting warm towards others so that they may be accepted.

Sometimes, these Cancer qualities they develop may stifle their inner child’s ability to play. The Capricorn earth sign inner child begins to feel powerless to the world around them, as they are no longer exerting their control over it.

It is important that the Cancer adult does not become too passive in his/her own life. The Capricorn earth sign child has needs that must be met. Capricorn earth signs need to know that their inner child is taking an active role in life.

Aquarius Earth Sign

People with their sun signs in Leo have their earth signs in Aquarius in the same degree, but opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, Aquarius earth sign children felt very detached in their early life. Their parents likely left them alone a lot and they spent a lot of time feeling lonely and wanting friends to play with.

These children feel disconnected from the world around them. They often don’t feel like they belong in their family situation, or even on earth. They are very logical to the point of coming across as detached– which causes them significant pain in childhood.

People want more compassion from them, but Aquarius earth signs often struggle with showing and giving that kind of compassion.

These children have knowledge beyond earth’s capacity, and may be attracted to space of alien life. This is an indicator that the Aquarius earth sign child is a Starseed of some kind, but they have trouble integrating on earth.

Because of this disconnect and loneliness, the Aquarius earth sign child feels that they need others to cope. They long for personal relationships, and become the Leo adult to deal with this internal loneliness. However, the Aquarius earth sign inner child likely never feels fully accepted.

The Leo Adult:

The Leo adult strives to work on personal relationships and wants to fit in.

Ideally, they would be surrounded by many friends and family, and would find themselves at the center of attention. This helps them to feel less lonely in their life and to feel as though they are meaningful and important to the world.

The Aquarius earth sign inner child still exists, dealing with loneliness no matter who they are surrounded by. This earth child is especially vulnerable when they are not surrounded by people, so in moments of alone time, the Leo sun adult feels like the child again.

These negative feelings lead the Leo sun adult to fill their lives with many different types of people. Leo sun people do not just have friends; all of their friends are “best friends.”

In actuality, they still feel very disconnected to others because of the Aquarius earth sign, and Leo suns can be hurt when these situations do not pan out the way they expected.

It is important for the Leo person to practice self love and spend time with the Aquarius earth sign inner child– telling the child that they is not alone and are always important.

Pisces Earth Sign

People with their sun signs in Virgo have their earth signs in Pisces in the same degrees, but the opposite house.

In earth sign astrology, the Pisces earth sign child is soft, sensitive, creative, and imaginative. They appear to live in their own world as a child and are not strongly affected by other people’s thoughts and actions.

Pisces earth sign children are exceptionally well connected to the universe. Sometimes, they’re very psychic. They may have dreams or premonitions about what is to come, or even manifest experiences using their imagination.

The Pisces earth sign child may struggle with addiction in childhood, whether it be to foods, television shows, or even games and activities. Their childhood may be relatively unsteady, leading them to create their own internal world that serves their emotional needs.

Pisces earth sign children are incredibly compassionate and empathetic towards everyone in their lives. They take on the emotions of everyone around them, leading them to feel deep existential sadness.

At some point in childhood, this existential sadness causes the Pisces earth sign too much pain and they must learn to separate their own emotions from those around them. They may have hurtful people in their life that try to shatter this bubble; this forces them to face the world around them.

The Virgo Adult:

In turn, they begin to create the discerning Virgo layer which is hyper-vigilant about the world around them.

This Virgo sun adult lives primarily in the present and is always on guard. This Virgo sun adult looks at the details of life. They try to live in the present as to preserve the innocence of the Pisces earth sign child.

If this is done correctly, the Virgo adult may become more health conscious and less addictive, while still maintaining the open and vulnerable nature of the Pisces earth sign child.

The Pisces earth sign child struggles with overindulgence in life, but the Virgo sun adult may be so tempered that they do not allow the child to have any fun. It is important to let Pisces earth signs, or the inner children, out to maintain the connection with the universe, while still being healthy.

A Guide To Chiron Aspects In The Natal Chart

A Guide To Chiron Aspects In The Natal Chart

Chiron is always painful regardless of where it sits, and when Chiron is aspected, there is no exception.

Sometimes, Chiron aspects to a planet make the planet more painful than usual, but it can also be helpful to have your Chiron aspected.

An aspected Chiron gives you an avenue through which you can start to heal your Chiron.

For example, with Chiron conjunct Mars, you know that the healing path for Chiron involves learning to exert your will. Without an aspect, you would simply be stuck.

I generally believe that Chiron aspects must have a relatively close orb to really be felt (3-4 degrees), but I do know of a few people who have a Chiron aspect that is over 8 degrees and they certainly feel the aspect.

Every Chiron aspect is specific to the person and to the chart, as always!

Sun conjunct Chiron

If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, your pain and wound is related to your self-expression. You may feel as though you have to hide your true self. This is especially apparent in the house that the conjunction sits in.

You might not have enough self-confidence to go after what you want or to achieve your goals with sun conjunct Chiron. It can take almost a whole lifetime to heal this wound, but it’s well worth it!

I find that the sun conjunct Chiron wound often stems directly from the relationship with the father. Sometimes the father created this wound, and other times he simply made the wound that already existed more painful.

Regardless, you probably had a very distressing relationship with your father or male authority figure. You didn’t get the love and acceptance that you needed. As a child, you might have craved attention or to be noticed, but this wasn’t given to you, either.

At the worst, you might have been humiliated or denied by your father.

Look to the house that your sun conjunct Chiron aspect is in to see where you experienced these traumas the most in childhood.

For example, the sun conjunct Chiron aspect in the 12th house could mean that the father was missing, absent, or emotionally unavailable, while the 3rd house could mean that you were never heard or listened to; you had no voice.

Of course, the manifestation of the sun conjunct Chiron aspect depends a lot on the sign/element that both planets sit in as well as the house.

You probably react in some way when the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is triggered. You may react outwardly and hurt others through anger or words (more common with fire signs) or retreat and beat yourself up mentally (more common with water signs).

One gift with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect is that you have great potential to understand suffering around you. Because suffering is so inherent to who you are and is something that you experience almost daily through your sun sign, you can easily spot someone else in pain.

People with the sun conjunct Chiron aspect can be great healers or even just truly kind people, especially as they continue to work through some of the pain of the Chironic wound.

If you have the sun conjunct Chiron aspect, you need to work on your low self-confidence. Try to put yourself out there and go after what you want; you will gain self-confidence slowly through action.

You might lack the masculine push that makes your sun truly shine. This is regardless of your gender, for we all have both masculine and feminine within us. The sun is typically masculine because it is bright and active, but your sun might feel dimmed because of this aspect.

Self-expression and creativity are the keys to igniting the power of your sun sign. You must learn how to be yourself, unapologetically, without fear of the father or of re-triggering the wound.

In fact, you probably will re-trigger the wound as you work through these issues, but this is actually beneficial to help. It is only by triggering your Chiron that you can begin to deal with it and gain self-confidence even though you experience pain.

If this wound did stem from your relationship with your father, or even if he simply re-triggered the wound from a past life, you may need to realize that he will never accept you in the way you want. You can still heal your wound by learning to understand your father and forgive him.

Much of this sun conjunct Chiron wound revolves around understanding that the past cannot be undone and that bad things happened to you so that you could learn. Now, it is time to discover how to accept yourself and eventually, rejection from others will no longer hurt.

I also find that some people with sun conjunct Chiron reject the masculine side of themselves in an attempt to reject the father, or they overemphasize the masculine side in order to gain his approval.

The healing path here is to determine what is authentically masculine about you (we all have parts of us that are authentically masculine) and to embrace those pieces of yourself rather than try to fabricate new ones.

Moon-Chiron aspects:

Typically, Moon-Chiron aspects indicate that your wound was created through nurturing issues and show up in your emotions.

Moon conjunct Chiron:

The moon conjunct Chiron aspect in the natal chart often has to do with trauma related to the mother or the main caretaker during early childhood. This can manifest in a few different ways.

If you have the moon conjunct Chiron aspect, your mother might have been wounded and you took on her pain because you learned how to cope from her. You might feel like a mini replica of your mother in this area.

The sign and house that the moon conjunct Chiron aspect sit in will tell you more about where and how that pain manifests.

The wounds that you saw your mother take on and cope with, when you were a child, influence you now as an adult. You might subconsciously take them on yourself and play out her role without meaning to, even if you know it wasn’t for her best interest.

If this is the case, it is important that you now do the inner work to separate from your mother and experience her pain from your own point of view rather than hers. You also need to form your own beliefs about what you wound means instead of using hers.

Alternatively, you might have felt unwanted or abandoned by your mother. Instead of internalizing her pain, this wound was caused by your mother’s reaction to you.

Moon conjunct Chiron is a very painful aspect. If the outcome of this aspect is that you felt unwanted and that you weren’t taken care of, you might now feel extremely lonely and insecure.

There are many ways that this could have played out. Your mother might have been absent, verbally abusive and aggressive, passive-aggressive, or simply ignored your emotional needs.

You also might develop nurturing issues towards yourself and others. You may ignore your own needs because they were ignored by your mother or primary caretaker, or you might ignore the needs of others who are close to you (your partner, children, family, friends, pets, etc.).

The healing path with this moon conjunct Chiron aspect is to reconnect with the inner child and give your child what they didn’t get when you were actually little.

I personally believe that the inner child will always exist energetically on some dimension, so simply ignoring them isn’t an option. You won’t be able to heal these wounds until you go through the process of healing yourself inside.

Only then can you nurture yourself and others in an appropriate, caring way.

Moon trine Chiron:

With Moon trine Chiron, you have the ability to heal your Chironic wound through your emotions. Although this wound was created by an emotional pain (often related to the mother), you do possess the tools to heal it.

In fact, Moon trine Chiron means that there is a natural path to heal your Chiron. You will have many opportunities, when your emotions are triggered, to work through them.

Like any Chironic placement, Moon trine Chiron is painful. However, you will almost always feel a sense of progress and rightness.

You can use your intuition to overcome your Moon trine Chiron wound. You have a sense about what you need to do in order to heal.

Moon sextile Chiron:

With Moon sextile Chiron, you have deep emotions relating to your wound. This is a difficult placement because every time your emotions are triggered, the wound also pops up.

However, Moon sextile Chiron means that you have an opportunity to heal Chiron in these very instances. When your emotions are triggered, the Universe is giving you a path forward to address your wound.

With Moon sextile Chiron, you will be put in many situations where you must do the work to heal. You can avoid looking at your Chironic wound if you wish, because the Moon sextile Chiron aspect simply means you can work through your wound.

It would behoove you to address your Chironic wound as soon as possible in order to experience less pain in your life.

Moon opposition Chiron:

With Moon opposition Chiron, you might feel like a bottomless pit when it comes to your emotions. You’re never fulfilled; you don’t know if there’s anyone or anything out there that could fix how you feel.

Your emotional wounds are extremely slow to heal. Moon opposition Chiron means that your Chironic wound is emotional in some way, but it’s probably very murky to you. This is a wound of shadows.

Your Moon opposition Chiron aspect means that you have two opposite signs involved in this trauma. For example, you might have Moon in Aries and Chiron in Libra.

This aspect also means that you tend to focus entirely on one sign and ignore the other. You actively try to heal your wound through only one of these signs.

However, the Moon opposition Chiron wound will never truly be healed until you’re able to integrate both signs together. Your path to healing has the qualities and elements of both opposite signs.

You probably can’t ignore your pain, but you focus on it in the wrong way. If you do try to ignore the wound, you simply become more emotional and delusional.

Instead, you need to find a balanced, logical approach to healing your Chironic wound.

Moon square Chiron:

With Moon square Chiron, you have trouble expressing your feelings and emotional needs. When someone asks you if you’re alright, you probably say you’re fine even though it might be a lie.

Some people with Moon square Chiron have a tendency to overly emote or spill all of their feelings, then later feel guilty or awkward. They might try to avoid the person they spoke too entirely! There is an imbalance here so emotions often come out sideways.

With Moon square Chiron, you might feel as though emotional satisfaction is just out of reach. You always believe you will feel fulfilled if you just reach the next milestone, then are continuously disappointed. 

Ultimately, the Moon square Chiron aspects creates intense feelings of guilt. This is why you never tell other people about your emotions; you feel that to do so is burdensome. You also feel awkwardness about even showing emotion.

You might ignore problems in order to maintain your appearance or because you don’t want to worry others. However, when you do this for too long, it makes it difficult to heal your wounds.

Sometimes, you even take on other peoples’ issues in addition to your own. You will eventually feel overburdened emotionally, even though you will try to hide these feelings.

The first step with Moon square Chiron is to own your feelings. Find a way to tell those who are close to you how you truly feel when you feel it. At first, your words might come out awkward or wrong, but this is something that takes practice.

The only way for you to heal the wound with Moon square Chiron is to eventually open up and lessen your own sense of guilt. Care for yourself, for once, instead of for everyone else. Remember that your feelings matter too.

The work to heal Moon square Chiron is deep and subconscious. It simply takes time.

Ultimately, Moon square Chiron people can have so much awareness about human emotions! They have experienced so much emotional pain that, when they work through the wound, they can go on to be extremely understanding and empathetic.

Mercury conjunct Chiron

If you have the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, you were silenced at some point in your childhood. You may have experienced rejection when you wanted to share your thoughts with someone or you were told that your words were wrong or bad, or just that they didn’t matter.

You were especially silenced in the house and sign that Mercury conjunct Chiron is in.

This creates a wound that can manifest in a few different ways.

You be try to achieve perfectionism at all times. You may never speak without being sure that what you’re saying is perfect and double or triple check all of your work.

Alternatively, you may avoid all things logical and communication-related. Sometimes, people with the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect work with their hands, avoid socializing, etc. so that the wound isn’t re-triggered.

Mercury conjunct Chiron can also indicate a disability to speech or movement. It might be social anxiety or general anxiety about saying the wrong thing.

It can also mean that your wound was caused by your siblings or peers, either in this life or in a past life. You might have felt invisible and that no one understood you, or you may have been bullied and insulted.

The path to heal the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect involves learning to speak freely and to express yourself without fear.

The goal is not to be absolutely perfect in all communication, but to accept that anything less than perfection is simply a part of who you are and is good and right.

With the Mercury conjunct Chiron aspect, there is a chance to heal through words and logical thinking. Owning who you are and building up your own self-esteem is very important.

You will find healing power in words once you use them in a way that words for you.

Venus-Chiron Aspects:

Venus-Chiron aspects are all about wounding through relationships. It shows your potential for either healing or triggering the wound while in a relationship or partnership. These aspects can also indicate how much you “run away” from the wound by focusing on superficial things rather than the core issue.

Venus conjunct Chiron:

With Venus conjunct Chiron in the natal chart, you have low-self esteem in the area of love because of your wound. You don’t feel worthy of love and might question if you’re even likable.

You might have a fear of abandonment and rejection lurking in the back of your mind at all times. You may also choose partners who make you feel rejected, creating a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It can be really hard for you to set boundaries with Venus conjunct Chiron. You might feel like the only way to get acceptance from other people is to give up your own desires.

Venus conjunct Chiron can sometimes mean that you’re sensitive and wounded when it comes to all things feminine. Often, the way you look feels painful.

You might try to “overcome” your wound by achieving physical beauty or becoming obsessed with how you look. This only hides the wound temporarily.

Alternatively, it is your physical appearance that causes you pain and triggers the wound.

Venus conjunct Chiron is a tough aspect in the natal chart. It can make romantic relationships and love very painful, but it extends beyond just partnerships and creates a wound that steps on who you are and your feminine side.

As with any Chiron placement, the healing path for Venus conjunct Chiron involves accepting your inner child or shadow self instead of changing your outer appearance or personality.

It is simply impossible to hide from the shadow self forever. Even though it’s more painful, the best way to heal is to go through rather than around.

Venus trine Chiron:

With Venus trine Chiron, you are drawn to relationships but also fear them. You instinctively/unconsciously know that healing is done through relationships, but you also sense that it will be painful.

This placement means that relationships are essential to heal your Chironic wound. Love and partnerships are vessels to finally alter your wound for good.

However, be careful with Venus trine Chiron that you don’t depend on someone else to “fix” you. It’s easy to look for healing in someone else and ignore that which is within you.

Venus trine Chiron means that you should embrace your relationships for the purpose of healing, but remember that true healing comes from within. Your relationships simply give you a means to get there. 

Once you’re in a relationship, you must do the work yourself. Venus trine Chiron simply means that your relationships will put you in situations to help you heal, not that your partner will magically heal you.

Venus sextile Chiron:

With Venus sextile Chiron, you have the opportunity to heal your Chironic wound through relationships. However, you must actively seek out ways to heal yourself and do the work.

Be careful that you don’t get stuck in superficial love situations. Venus sextile Chiron means that you can easily focus on how things “look” rather than on the wound within.

You should also avoid relationships where you keep the peace. This is a sign, with Venus sextile Chiron, that you’re ignoring the wound within.

All this Venus sextile Chiron placement means is that in a relationship, you will have more situations that trigger your Chironic wound, enabling you to work on it. However, you must actually do this work inside of just waiting until the situations pass.

Venus sextile Chiron may still be a bit painful, but you will come out on the other side much faster if you push through and do inner work at every turn.

Venus opposition Chiron:

With Venus opposition Chiron, your wounds are likely to come out in romantic relationships or close friendships. However, you also seek out intimate relationships as much as possible.

You depend on others loving you. When someone doesn’t approve of you or show you affection, you might feel extremely let down. 

What you don’t realize is that because of Venus opposition Chiron, the true issue is your own lack of self love. You look to others to fill you up and make you feel better, but it will never truly work.

When someone disapproves of you, it’s easy for you to fixate on how to mend the situation. However, you wouldn’t be feeling so badly if you didn’t agree with them deep down.

Self love is an important lesson with Venus opposition Chiron. The only way to heal your Chironic wound is to stop focusing on others and look inside.

You may also think that if things “look good” then the wound will be healed. Venus opposition Chiron means that you may focus too much on image or superficial friendships or relationships. This is simply taking you further away from healing your Chironic wound. Instead, look within to the shadow self.

Venus square Chiron:

Venus square Chiron can indicate physical, emotional, or sexual abuse in a past life or in childhood. With this aspect, you have been wounded in love. This can refer to either platonic or romantic love.

Now, you may have issues with low self-esteem and truly loving yourself. You’re probably generous with others, but you don’t always treat yourself well.

Venus square Chiron can mean that you give love to those who don’t necessarily deserve it (those who wound you) while you ignore those who should receive your love.

There’s potential with this Venus square Chiron aspect for you to treat those closest to you rather badly. You’re always chasing something, but when someone does give you love (and it does nothing to fix your wound) you stop noticing.

Most relationships are painful for you with Venus square Chiron. You just can’t get a grip on exactly what you’re looking for.

Be cautious of getting stuck in relationships with emotionally abusive partners. Sometimes, you subconsciously re-trigger the wound over and over, as though you’re reliving your trauma.

Alternatively, you might actually become abusive in relationships in order to get a sense of control. You mistakenly believe that this will fix the wound inside. However, it’s actually a sense of love you’re looking for, not control or power.

Ultimately, the Venus square Chiron wound can only be worked through by looking within. If you find yourself accepting negative treatment from others or treating those around you badly, this is a signal to look within. It is painful work, but it can be done and you will then experience more positive, nurturing relationships.

Mars conjunct Chiron

With Mars conjunct Chiron, your wound was created due to an act of aggression. You learned that aggression was bad and painful.

Now, Mars conjunct Chiron may manifest as your struggle to be assertive, low self-esteem with your endeavors, and low drive. You might keep your aggression hidden and display only nice, diplomatic tendencies. You feel that it’s not OK to get angry.

Alternatively, you may overcompensate with misplaced, excessive aggression and impulsiveness.

Mars conjunct Chiron can signify painful relationships with men or aggressive sexual trauma, although this is not always the case.

You may be very good at hiding when the wound has triggered you, but there is always an unsettled emotional undercurrent. There may also be an unconscious urgency present in you.

When you channel your energy in the right way, you can be very powerful. Often, those with Mars conjunct Chiron need to channel the excess energy that builds up inside of them due to this blockage.

There are many ways to channel energy. Some use art, music, science, writing, physical fitness, etc. Much of this will depend on other aspects in your chart and the sign and house that Mars conjunct Chiron sits in.

Jupiter conjunct Chiron

Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be the mark of a great healer or teacher, if it is used correctly. For the Jupiter conjunct Chiron individual, the adventure of life is simply the journey of healing.

At the same time, Jupiter conjunct Chiron can be a difficult placement. Jupiter magnifies everything it touches, so the Chironic wound may feel like it seeps into every aspect of your life.

Jupiter conjunct Chiron generally means that the wound was created over a trauma concerning fairness, justice, equality, morals, ethics, spirituality, or money.

This often pushes the individual ot be involved in “big-picture” things in some way. With Jupiter conjunct Chiron, you may feel strongly about humanity “getting somewhere,” especially in the house and sign that your Chiron sits in.

Saturn conjunct Chiron

If you have Saturn conjunct Chiron, you were rejected in childhood by a parent. This often signifies the father, but it can be any authority figure depending on your individual chart.

Alternatively, you may have a fear of authority figures due to your experiences in childhood. Sometimes, you were both rejected (creating negative self-worth feelings within you) and are afraid of authority.

This can manifest in many different ways. So much of the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect depends on the sign and the house, so make sure that you study both of those and take those meanings into account.

With this Saturn conjunct Chiron wound, you might feel worthy only if you achieve something in the eyes of society. You were never worthy to your father figure, so you now try to get acceptance from society instead. You overcompensate for the wound.

This might be a push-pull. You’re always trying to live up to what you think your father figure would want from you, but you simultaneously push against it.

Alternatively, you may develop issues with control. You might seek to control yourself completely but find that you’re unable to stuff down your emotional reactions when the wound is triggered, or you might instead focus on controlling others. Again, this manifestation will depend on the house and sign.

One of the best qualities about the Saturn conjunct Chiron placement is that these folks are easily able to learn from their own mistakes. They can be rather successful in life if the chart is well-aspected and set up for success.

The work with the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is to learn to love your wounds for their service to you. Even though these wounds feel bad and scary, this aspect (and your Chiron in general) forces you to go within and learn to accept yourself.

You need to give your inner child or shadow self the acceptance and approval that your father figure did not in order to heal.

Saturn conjunct Chiron can often lead to a healing path. Regardless of what you actually do for your job, this aspect usually means that considerable work was done in a past life on the evolution of your consciousness, especially if the Saturn conjunct Chiron aspect is in a water sign.

Uranus conjunct Chiron

With Uranus conjunct Chiron, your wound makes you feel different or alien in society. You probably feel that you don’t fit in.

Uranus conjunct Chiron also means that your wound is triggered when you feel different. You can look to the house and the sign that Uranus conjunct Chiron sits into see exactly where and how this plays out.

To heal Uranus conjunct Chiron, you will need to come to terms with and accept your own unique nature. It can also help to figure out why you’re different and learn what you were sent to earth to accomplish.

Neptune conjunct Chiron

Neptune conjunct Chiron can mean that the wound is related to a trauma concerning alcohol or drug addiction, mental illness, or a lack of spiritual faith.

You will need to look at the house and sign Neptune conjunct Chiron sits in to determine exactly how this wound manfiests.

Most of the time, the healing path for Neptune conjunct Chiron is to learn how to trust in the Universe and in the divine.

Pluto conjunct Chiron

With Pluto conjunct Chiron, you may be very focused on what you believe is powerful. This is typically because your wound was created by someone having power over you.

Because of this Pluto conjunct Chiron wound, you believed that you needed to either acquire society power or give it up completely. You have power and control issues and you don’t know how to manage them.

The key to healing Pluto conjunct Chiron is to delve into what truly happened to create the wound instead of trying to cover it up with external power.

Chiron conjunct Vesta

Vesta can refer to a lot of different things in life, so Chiron conjunct Vesta is a tricky aspect to explain. I’ll do my best to lay out each interpretation; you will need to look at the conjunction, the house, the sign, and other aspects to see which will fit.

Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Vesta manifests so that the individual feels like they must be perfect all of the time in some area. There is no flexibility. For example, with Chiron conjunct Vesta in the 9th house, an individual might have a deep fear of failing out of school or appearing unintelligent.

Alternatively, it might manifest in a gender imbalance. For example, a girl who grows up in a home with only women where men are shunned may feel that this gender imbalance contributes to the wound and stifles their own masculine side.

Chiron conjunct Vesta is common in natal charts of people who had to move away from their homes or families. It shows in those who lost a parent, went to boarding school, grew up in an orphanage, or were exiled or isolated in some way. This isn’t always the case (as I said, Chiron conjunct Vesta has many meanings and interpretations).

It can also appear in people’s charts who grew up in bleak homes. Vesta signifies religion or a monastery or nunnery, so it can often mean that the person was stifled in their home in some way.

Generally, Vesta points to spirituality, religion, sexuality, and devotion. All of these things can be healthy when balanced or can quickly become harmful when unbalanced.

Look to the sign and house that your Chiron conjunct Vesta aspect fits in and see where you are unbalanced and where any imbalance may be covering up the Chironic wound.

Chiron conjunct Pallas

You path of healing and initiation is likely to be very intellectual and creative, and could well include political involvement. You may employ art therapy as a means of awakening self-awareness. Your intelligence naturally gravitates to holistic and natural methods, and you articulate your understanding both verbally and artistically with great insight. Your journey is about upholding justice and promoting the arts within your social milieu, as well as finding keys to your personal healing and transformation.

Chiron conjunct Juno

With Chiron conjunct Juno, you have a wound surrounding marriage and long-term partnerships, most likely caused from a past life trauma.

You may also have been traumatized by your parents’ marriage or others you witnesses as a child, although this is not always the case. You may have just been hurt by your own marriage or partnership in a past life.

This trauma causes a lot of pain for you in present-day marriages or relationships. Marriage brings out all of your wounds; this is both helpful and difficult.

To heal a wound, you need to be able to see it. Chiron conjunct Juno illuminates the wound through marriage, enabling you to recognize it then work on the Chironic wound within a marriage or partnership.

Sometimes, people with Chiron conjunct Juno have a fear of commitment or a fear of being committed to.

To heal, you will need to reshape and redefine your understanding of what a marriage or partnership is.

The sign of your Chiron conjunct Juno can give you insight into how you need to redefine your definition of marriage.

Chiron conjunct Ceres

If you have the Chiron conjunct Ceres aspect, your wound comes from the nurturing that you received in childhood. Either you didn’t receive enough nurture or you weren’t nurtured in a way that was appropriate for you.

This lack of true nurture has caused this Chiron conjunct Ceres wound. Now, you might not know how to appropriately nurture yourself and others.

There is a lot of pain surrounding the ideas of nurturing and mothering. You aren’t able to self-nurture without triggering the pain of the wound.

This is actually one of the better conjunctions for Chiron. With Chiron conjunct Ceres, you have the opportunity to heal the wound through learning how to appropriately and effectively nurture yourself.

You need to figure out what type of nurturing feels good for you. Your Ceres sign and house will give you some clues as to how you naturally receive care.

Chiron conjunct North Node

If you have Chiron conjunct North Node, it is more essential than any others that you deal with Chiron in this lifetime.

In past lifetimes, you were probably taught to avoid looking at your wound, but in this lifetime, the only way to heal your Chiron wound is to deal with it straight on.

Chiron conjunct North Node is an aspect of direct action.

With Chiron conjunct North Node, it will be very difficult to learn the lessons of your North Node without first healing Chiron.

Chiron conjunct South Node

Chiron wounds often come with us from a past life, but this is especially true with the Chiron conjunct South Node aspect. I find that with this aspect, the Chironic wound not only comes from a past life but was recreated in childhood, so it might feel like you have been wounded over and over.

You probably came into this incarnation with strong memories of your Chironic wound, and these memories were only amplified in childhood. You may have even been re-wounded with the same parental souls.

Now, you probably depend on others to relieve the wound for you or you find outlets to try and relieve it, but you never actually look inside at what wounded you.

For Chiron conjunct South Node people, the answer to unlocking the trauma that Chiron caused is within. No one else can help you heal this wound.

In this lifetime, parents or authority figures either can’t or won’t give you what you need to help your Chiron heal. You need to heal yourself.

Might depend on others to relieve wound or find other ways to relieve it but never really look at it

The answer to unlocking the trauma that caused Chiron is only within you; no one else can help. You can’t depend on parents or authority figures but must find the healing path yourself. Start by simply looking within.

Chiron conjunct Ascendant

Chiron conjunct Ascendant is an especially tough placement. With this aspect, you encounter some early trauma in life or possibly even a trauma birth. I find that these people often didn’t want to be born on a soul level.

Often, this trauma was unconscious because it occurred at a soul level. It happens very early in your life.

As you grow, you have the vague feeling that you don’t have the right to exist. You feel like a social outcast, whether this is with family, friends, or society as a whole.

The Chiron conjunct ascendant aspect makes it very difficult for you to create an identity that you can show to the world. You might feel like you’re “no one” in front of others, that you don’t have an outer personality.

You may also feel insecure around others, especially strangers, and you will either retreat or act out to deal with this pain. You probably try to escape the world to escape the wound, but it follows you.

You’re afraid of doing or saying the wrong thing. You also may have a physical wound or feel lacking in some way that is strictly physical.

If this isn’t the case, you may instead change your appearance drastically to try and combat your Chironic wound, but this does not ultimately heal it.

Almost everyone with Chiron conjunct Ascendant are very self-conscious about their physical appearance.

If you have Chiron conjunct Ascendant, you probably didn’t like the way you looked growing up. Alternatively, the physical appearance was the source of trauma.

Ultimately, with Chiron conjunct Ascendant, the wound is the first mask. Over time, you come to believe that the wound is you instead of something that happened to you.

Healing will happen when you’re able to separate out the wound from who you are and see that your trauma is just something that happened to you, not who you are as a person.

Chiron conjunct Descendant

With Chiron conjunct Descendant, you are probably attracted to “wounded birds.”

You wounds are illuminated through relationships, but this is because your Chironic wound will be reflected in others. This will force you to deal with the wound.

Chiron conjunct Midheaven

If you have Chiron conjunct Midheaven, your journey to heal your Chiron will be played out in front of the eyes of others, whether this is something that you want or not.

You probably have a bit of a push-pull when it comes to your public image. You want other to see your story and your pain and to understand you, but you are simultaneously afraid of the limelight.

With Chiron conjunct Midheaven, you won’t be able to figure out what the best profession is for your soul until the wound is looked at and attended to.

Chiron conjunct IC

Chiron conjunct IC usually means that you experienced great pain in childhood. Your wound relates to your parents, grandparents, the past, your heredity, genetics, etc.

With Chiron conjunct IC, you will probably try to escape the wound by “remaining” in the 10th house career and public image life. You will put all of your focus into what you do and who you are now.

Unfortunately, your Chironic wound always bleeds through, so it will become a part of your public life, even if you don’t want it to.

This Chiron conjunct IC aspect can lead to uncomfortable airings of the deepest wound or huge amounts of drama in public places.

Alternatively, if you are able to keep your Chiron conjunct IC aspect and your public life separate (which is rare and quite hard to do with this aspect), there will be tension and conflict between your career and your internal wound.

You may feel as though your career is always aggravating your wound in some way, and this is because you must be forced to see it in order to heal it.

Chiron conjunct Lilith

With Chiron conjunct Lilith, your wound was created by a trauma that feels taboo and shameful. It may be connected to sexuality, feminism, racism, homophobia, or anything that you considered “wrong.”

The Chiron conjunct Lilith aspect, more than any other, calls on you to address painful and shameful stories. The healing path, as always, is inside of you.

Many people with Chiron conjunct Lilith try to fix the world outside, to stop a similar trauma from every happening again, but it is inside of you that needs healing and care.

Sometimes, Chiron conjunct Lilith can manifest as extreme rage. Other times it manifests as shame or extreme embarrassment. To heal this aspect, you need to find out what the trauma was and re-define your beliefs surrounding what happened.

Chiron In Aquarius: The Wound Of Belonging

Chiron In Aquarius: The Wound Of Belonging

Chiron in the wound that you’re born with, but it continues to develop throughout your life for better or worse. Chiron in Aquarius is all about feeling different. This wound can show itself in a lot of different ways.

In general, the Chironic wound is something that pops up over and over in your life. Unlike Saturn, which can be hidden, it’s hard to forget about your Chiron.

At the same time, Chiron can always be healed and used for good.

Chiron in Aquarius is especially hard to forget because it shows up any time you’re in a group setting.

I also find that Chiron in Aquarius is a super important placement because it shows you that you soul has a unique purpose on this earth.

The Chiron In Aquarius Wound

The Chiron in Aquarius wound is all about your sense of belonging in a community.

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you might feel disconnected or self-conscious in a group setting. You feel like you don’t truly belong in the community in some way.

Aquarius is a group sign but it’s also about being different or quirky. With Chiron, this perfectly explains the wound.

You want to be in group settings but you also feel different, as though you don’t belong. You might even feel like there’s something wrong with you.

Ultimately, you just can’t fit into the community in the way that you want to.

It’s common for people with Chiron in Aquarius to seek company but be lonely among others at the same time.

Sometimes, the Chiron in Aquarius person can even feel like an outsider from the rest of humanity.

This individual can also feel unsafe, separated, ungrounded, or self-conscious around groups of people. These groups might be friends, family, the community, or other humans in general.

The Chiron in Aquarius person is often uncomfortable with the things that make them different from others, even if these qualities are actually a gift.

How The Chironic Wound Will Show Itself

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, you feel different in groups, but this will manifest in one of two ways.

In the first way, you go out of your way to get a reaction about your differences. You come off as ultra-eccentric.

It is the differences that you have that you play up around others, but not necessarily in a positive way.

You might come off as weird or odd because you’re forcing these differences rather than showing them in an authentic way.

You might also react strongly to any perceived slight. You do this to break bonds that might be forming before the other people can break them or judge you because that would be too painful.

Alternatively, with Chiron in Aquarius, you might remain friendly but distant. You never really feel comfortable in a group so you’re scared to open up and show your true self.

It might be hard for others to really grasp who you are because you avoid becoming truly close.

I find that the Chiron in Aquarius person can sometimes (depending on the house) get obsessed with social causes as a way of feeling connected to society, however this might backfire because the individual really wants to belong in a group, not just to the idea of a cause.

Where Does The Chiron In Aquarius Wound Come From?

First of all, the Chiron in Aquarius wound often shows up in the charts of people who are Starseeds.

If you have Chiron in Aquarius, there is probably a good reason you feel like an outside, and that is because you quite literally hail from another planet.

Throughout your past lives on earth, these differences were probably highlighted. You might not have known how to act and how to fit in among the rules and society on Earth.

I find that this wound usually did begin with real differences, but when you were hurt by groups noticing these differences, your feelings compounded and over time created a deep, painful wound.

Now, the wound might be triggered even if you technically do fit in because the wound is inside you.

How To Heal Chiron In Aquarius

To heal Chiron in Aquarius, you must first realize that you most likely come from another solar system or even universe. You bring unique qualities to the world and these are gifts rather than burdens.

All Starseeds are here for a reason and it is bring everyone on Earth forward and to help others evolve.

Take time alone to connect with the universe and the energy that is within you. There are gifts that are natural to you and this is why you are different.

The path to healing Chiron in Aquarius involves learning to see that you do fit into the grand plan.

You need to learn how to discriminate between different systems of thought and recognize when a group isn’t a good fit for you without feeling rejected.

At the end of the day, even with Chiron in Aquarius, you do fit somewhere. To heal, you need to figure out where that is and learn to let go of resentful towards the people whom you didn’t fit in with.

Lastly, it can be helpful to look at the ways that your differences from others are actually similarities in essence. This will come through silent communication with the universe.

Chiron In The Houses

Chiron In The Houses

Chiron was only just discovered in 1977, but many astrologers (including myself) consider Chiron to be an essential asteroid in the birth chart. Today, I’ll be looking at Chiron in the houses, as well as explaining how you can put your Chiron’s sign and house together to create one fluid definition.

Our Chironic wounds indicate the area where we have been hurt to a huge extent. We carry these wounds around with us and are unable to escape them. The goal is instead to heal these wounds and use what we learn from Chiron for good.

What Is Chiron?

Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” in astrology. Through learning about Chiron, you will get to know and understand your deepest wounds that were created in a past life, in childhood, or (often) a mixture of both.

I find that it’s really beneficial to learn about Chiron, not just because you need to heal it, but because our Chironic wounds give us deeper insight into ourselves and our psyche.

How To Read Chiron In The Houses:

The signs show the nature of Chiron and how it is expressed, but the houses show the context for Chironic expression. Chiron in the houses will show where your sign is expressed, including the location, the part of the psyche, the timeline, etc.

The goal is to look at both your Chiron in the signs and Chiron in the houses together. While this is tricky to do, it takes a bit of analysis and creativity.

I included examples through these Chiron in the houses descriptions, but feel free to drop a comment with any questions. I’m happy to help you figure out what your Chiron means!

Chiron In The Signs:

If you’re looking to read about Chiron in the signs, check out these posts:

Chiron In The 1st House

Chiron in the 1st house can seem pretty obvious to everyone else. Your Chironic wound quite literally shows up in your sense of self, identity, and self-worth. Chiron is very conspicuous in the way that you present yourself.

If you have Chiron in the 1st house, Chiron might also impact your physical health or appearance in some way. The wound often manifests in a physical nature as well as emotionally or mentally.

For example, you might have been physically ignored, abused, have a physical illness, or found some part of your body lacking, depending on the sign that your Chiron in the 1st house sits in.

I find that Chiron in the 1st house can often indicate that the wound was either learned or cemented (if it was first learned in a past life) during childhood. Something about this person’s youth made this Chironic wound an integral part of the outer personality.

Because Chiron in the 1st house is related to childhood, these folks can carry the Chironic wound through their inner child as they age. They might learn to hide it after a time, but the wound will always sit with the inner child.

This Chiron in the 1st house wound will typically manifest in the person’s outward appearance and personality. When you first meet a person with Chiron in the 1st house, you will see the wound right away.

If you have this placement, look at how you feel around other people and how you present yourself. This will most likely point to the wound.

For example, someone with Chiron in the 1st house in Capricorn may have felt ignored or passed over but they also present as cold and stoic. An individual with Libra may feel dependent on others, even when they first meet them, and become clingy quickly.

If Chiron is conjunct the ascendant in the first house, these feelings will be especially strong. Chiron in the 1st house is more likely to present itself physically when it is conjunct the ascendant. Chiron in retrograde may be less obvious to others but more obvious to the individual, although this is not always the case.

Chiron In The 2nd House

If you have Chiron in the 2nd house, your wound is in the area of security. In some way, you felt as though you lacked security, safety, or well-being. This might be especially obvious during childhood with Chiron in the 2nd house.

This placement can show up in a lot of ways; this depends almost entirely on the sign that Chiron is in. For example, Chiron in Cancer may indicate a lack of emotional security or security regarding the home, while Chiron in Pisces can indicate a lack of spiritual security or the mental illness or addiction of a parent or caretaker.

Chiron in the 2nd house can manifest through security issues with inheritance, money, the home, spiritual guidance, spiritual security, emotional security, mental security, physical security, etc. These people might feel like there is no guiding force in their life (lack of parental security) or they may feel that they are coerced into decisions and can’t develop their own inner self (lack of inner security).

I find that people with Chiron in the 2nd house were often belittled in some way in childhood. They may have had little to no affection, or the affection that they did receive was inappropriate in some way.

At the end of the day, if you have Chiron in the 2nd house, you’ll want to learn how to provide the security you were missing for yourself.

You will also recognize that there is no true security on earth beyond believing in the powers of the Universe and believing that everything happens for a reason. You will learn to discern that many societal constructs are just illusions. By figuring out what’s true for you and what the Universe means to you, you’ll develop your own sense of inner security.

At the same time, it can be helpful for people with Chiron in the 2nd house to take practical steps towards feeling safe. For example, if you felt physically unsafe, creating a safe environment (in neighborhood with low crime rates, installing an alarm system, etc.) might help you to work through your Chiron.

Chiron in the 3rd House

Chiron in the 3rd house has to do with your ability to process information mentally and to communicate.

If you have Chiron in the 3rd house, you might have difficulty expressing yourself and being heard. Sometimes, you are easily heard, but your true intentions don’t come across.

It’s easy for Chiron in the 3rd house people to incur destructive or negative thought patterns, but they might alternatively avoid anything emotional and have difficulty discussing what they feel. Most people with Chiron in the 3rd house fall into one of these two extremes.

I find that people with Chiron in the 3rd house often believe strongly in rationality and logic, but this is sometimes at the expense of developing their intuition or following their gut feelings. Alternatively, these folks will use only emotion and throw logic and intuition to the wayside.

Sometimes, there is even a bit of both. The third house can be a bit erratic because it is the house of Gemini, so the individual with Chiron in the 3rd house might sometimes be completely illogical and emotional, but other times rely only on facts and avoid displays of emotion or empathy.

I also notice that Chiron in the 3rd house can relate to learning disabilities, such as dyslexia or ADD. These folks think a bit differently than others, and while there is nothing wrong with that, they inherently don’t like their differences. It is their own judgments of their differences (that are formed from society) that cause the issues.

Occasionally, Chiron in the 3rd house can also refer to a wound with siblings. There may be past life trauma or wounds with these specific siblings, or the siblings may just be unable to communicate effectively. This causes a deep wound and hurt for the Chiron in the 3rd house individual.

The way to heal Chiron in the 3rd house is to speak your truth. Learn to value your own thoughts and opinions, and practice balancing gut instincts with logic. You will develop your own method of communication with enough practice, but you must first let go of the judgement that either you or society has cast on your mental abilities.

Chiron in the 4th House

If you have Chiron in the 4th house, your Chironic wound feels most active when you’re around family or other people from your childhood.

This placement means that your home life either failed to fill the void that your Chiron sign left (in a past life; the specific void will depend on Chiron’s sign), or your childhood simply made Chiron worse. These feelings are always re-triggered when you feel like your “young self” again because your Chiron in the 4th house wound has become a part of your inner child.

You might be very sensitive around family. If things go even slightly wrong, you can easily veer into loneliness or hopelessness.

Often, Chiron in the 4th house means that at least one of your parental figures was absent. They might have been absent emotionally, mentally, or physically, but this absence affected you deeply. You may now struggle to figure out where and with whom you belong.

I find that this Chiron in the 4th house placement can lead to over-attachment (or anxious attachment) to those who do stick around. Alternatively, the individual might become less attached than normal (avoidant attachment) in order to avoid getting hurt as they did when they were a child.

In relationships, the Chiron in the 4th house individual might struggle to let go, even when the relationship is unhealthy. It’s difficult for these people to see red flags once they’re attached.

If you have this placement, you might be very good at naturally picking up on the wounds of others. Chiron in the 4th house means that you can be a great caretaker, but you can also get emotionally overwhelmed easily. You sometimes get stuck caring for people with wounds that they don’t want to heal.

With Chiron in the 4th house, you need to learn that you are the only one who can give yourself proper validation to heal. You’ll also need to understand that you’re good enough to be cared for by others and that you deserve more than what you ask for.

I find that Chiron in the 4th house is always a lesson of worthiness, but this is a quality that must be developed from the inside.

Chiron in the 5th House

Chiron in the 5th house is especially dependent on the sign that Chiron sits in. This 5th house wound is all about a deep hurt relating to the Inner Child, sexuality, romance, self-expression, or creativity.

If you have Chiron in the 5th house, you probably hide what is unique about you, especially in the sign of your Chiron. You take many various reactions from others as rejection, even when they’re not.

Your inner infant wasn’t given nonjudgmental freedom to play, so now you are hyper self-critical and aware. You are afraid of how others would receive your most vulnerable self. To try and cloak this fear, you simply suppress that part of you.

The Chiron in the 5th house person might be extra-self conscious. It’s hard for them to let go and have fun.

Although I find that Chiron in the 5th house often manifests in this way, there are a few other ways it can manifest instead.

Sometimes, Chiron in the 5th house can be about children. You might want children but are unable to have them, so you live with this wound, or you might become hyper-critical of your children because you don’t want them to experience the wound that you felt.

Alternatively, the Chiron in the 5th house person might be wounded or betrayed by partners and by romance in general.

The path to healing Chiron in the 5th house largely depends on the scenario and the Chiron sign. Learning to be vulnerable with yourself is always a good first step, as well as finding the will to create and shine, especially in your specific Chiron sign.

The goal with Chiron in the 5th house is to live from the heart with honesty and integrity.

Chiron in the 6th House

If you have Chiron in the 6th house, your woundedness plays out in the workplace or through working with the community. You will see your wound show up most often where you spend your days (work, school, etc.).

This is a tough placement for a wound because it’s hard to escape it. The wound will also depend a good deal on the sign that Chiron sits in.

Some people with Chiron in the 6th house remember feeling different from other children in school, or they felt that their wound showed up over and over in the workplace no matter how they tried to hide it.

Alternatively, the Chiron in the 6th house wound might also appear in the areas of medicine, health, or disease. Sometimes, a Chiron in the 6th house wound will show up both in day-to-day matters and health-related problems.

This placement can also create OCD if Chiron is in a sign that is relevant to this disorder. With Chiron in the 6th house, emotional issues often become physical after a time.

The lesson is to learn to fully accept the self. Most of the problems that come with Chiron in the 6th house are because the individual is trying to reject the self in some way, whether it is because the self is impure, unclean, or simply wrong.

The healing path is to realize that this is simply a false judgment and to work on accepting the inner self completely.

Chiron in the 7th House

If you have Chiron in the 7th house, your woundedness comes through relationships with others. It is being in a relationship (often a romantic relationship) that triggers your wound, although it always lies dormant under the surface, even when you don’t see it.

You may feel that you don’t have a “self” with Chiron in the 7th house. You might try to emotionally merge or mesh with your partner.

These are the folks that may stifle themselves in relationships in order to hang onto the partnership. They feel that they can’t express who they truly are.

There is potential for these people to end up in abusive relationships due to the nature of the Chironic wound, but they might instead be stifled in other ways, such as entering into a relationship with a partner who has a disability and needs constant care. They always feel as though they need to sacrifice the self.

While the Chiron in the 7th house person may truly love their partner, they might also lose themselves in the relationship.

Sometimes, these qualities and traits are learned from parents or from role models early in life. How the relationship issues manifest will depend on the sign that Chiron is in.

Chiron in the 8th House

If you have Chiron in the 8th house, your wound has to do with spirituality, death, loss, power, sexuality or money. This wound often has a lot to do with mortality.

Usually, the wound is caused by a trauma surrounding death, loss, control, sex, or financial issues (to the max). This may have been a trauma that happened to you in a past life or a trauma you experienced in childhood that caused these learned behaviors.

You are now terrified of what you learned through that trauma. Chiron in the 8th house especially creates a deep, impactful wound that can really hurt you if you don’t work to heal it.

I find that Chiron in the 8th house can indicate losses through death You might be surrounded by a lot of death or you might have lost many people in some manner during early life. This might even happen up through your teenage years, or it might just be something you’re fearful of because of a past life trauma.

Alternatively, your Chiron will center around control. You may either try to control others in a variety of ways or give up your personal control and allow others to take charge of you.

Chiron in the 9th House

Chiron in the 9th house means that your wound can play out in one of many areas, including travel, spirituality or religion, philosophy, ethics, morals, or higher education.

This one can be a bit complicated to explain so I’m going to try and break it down a bit.

Firstly, with Chiron in the 9th house, you may have been wounded in some way because of the belief system you grew up with. You might either try extra hard to find a spiritual path to make sense of your life, or you might avoid thinking about spirituality or religion in general.

These folks are either religious (or spiritual fanatics) or they are completely agnostic. Sometimes, they are constantly having spiritual crises that they just can’t seem to figure out. They might have a need to find an external “God” that exists outside of and separately from themselves.

Alternatively, travel or other cultures were involved in the wound. Sometimes people with Chiron in the 9th house grew up traveling constantly and never had roots, never fit into other cultures, or struggled to find a culture that they did fit into. They might feel like they don’t truly belong anywhere.

Lastly, the individual with Chiron in the 9th house might become disillusioned because they fail to live up to a specific vision or potential that they imposed on themselves. I find that this “potential” is sometimes imposed by the parents, but sometimes it is just the individual’s desire to escape the wound through succeeding in a specific way.

The person with Chiron in the 9th house will usually use 9th house means to try and escape the wound (become a lifelong traveler, get immersed in academia with a fear of failure, become heavily involved in philosophy or politics, etc.).

Again, look to the sign that Chiron in the 9th house is in to determine how this wound will play out. The sign typically indicates the cause of the wound, especially with Chiron in the 9th house.

I find that the most telling indicator of someone with Chiron in the 9th house is the feeling that they are a failure. There is usually an internal mechanism that tells the person over and over that they have failed, no matter how hard they try.

Chiron in the 10th House

Chiron in the 10th house indicates that your wound is related to your career or your public image. The woundedness is played out in the areas of business, publicity, or the individual’s need for recognition, appreciation, respect, and acknowledgement.

I find that Chiron in the 10th house folks usually didn’t receive much recognition or respect in childhood, especially concerning their purpose and what they want to do with their lives.

For example, a Chiron in the 10th house child might have wanted to be an astronaut, but they were shot down by their parents for having “too large” of dreams.

Because of these lessons, the individual will either try to force it at all costs (to gain fame, notoriety, or business success) or they will feel far too nervous to even try.

Regardless of which path Chiron in the 10th house people take, there is a deep self-esteem wound that was caused when they were told they weren’t good enough to try or to succeed.

Chiron in the 11th House

Chiron in the 11th house is a wound relating to individuality and group participation. It shows up in the areas of groups, friends, or the community in general.

The person with Chiron in the 11th house will avoid expressing original ideas because they fear that they won’t be accepted or understood. They might feel enslaved by society in general or the way that groups think. They feel that they must conform “or else.”

Even though the individual might conform on the outside, they struggle to understand why the group works as it does. Their sense of individualism bleeds through and speaks to them.

Alternatively, the individual might reject society completely. They feel alienated because they think differently, so they can easily become rebellious or destructive with the intention to hurt others as they have been wounded.

If you have Chiron in the 11th house, the goal is to avoid either extreme and to instead see what you do have in common with society. You have these unique views for a reason and you were sent here to share them and to transform the earth.

How can you help by expressing your own needs and inner self in a positive and constructive way? What can you offer? Is there a group that will accept you because you bring something special to the table?

Any individual with Chiron in the 11th house is capable of contributing quite a lot of good to society. Healing comes from reconciling individual needs with those of society and expressing both in a positive and constructive way.

Ultimately, any individual with Chiron in the 11th house will learn how to be an individual within a group and avoid losing themselves.

Chiron in the 12th House

If you have Chiron in the 12th house, you may work very hard to hide your wound away. The wound might even be unconscious, but when it does come to the surface, you feel the urgent need to stuff it back down.

At the same time, you may cling to your wound with Chiron in the 12th house. These wounds often come from a past life, and it might feel like the wound is an essential part of who you are.

More than any other placement, Chiron in the 12th house can be pretty dark and scary. The wound often revolves around fear from a past life and trauma that is buried in your unconscious mind.

Chiron in the 12th house can indicate either mental illness or psychism. These traits are often ancestral; the wound itself may even be ancestral.

Alternatively, this Chiron in the 12th house placement can also have to do with an incarceration of some kind. This could be prison of the mind, body, or spirit.

So there you have it: Chiron in the houses. Questions or comments about your Chiron placement? Drop a line in the comments and I’m always happy to help!

Juno Astrology Aspects In Synastry

Juno Astrology Aspects In Synastry

Juno aspects seem minor to many astrologers, but these aspects can tell you a lot about the qualities that your relationship has or might have, especially in a long-term relationship.

When you’re looking at Juno aspects with a partner, you’ll want to look specifically at Juno aspects in synastry. This means that you’re using both of your charts and looking at the aspects between them.

Today I’m going over every single aspect you might have between Juno and other planets or points in a synastry chart!

If you have difficult aspects, don’t get too upset – these aspects don’t mean that the relationship is doomed. Sure, sometimes aspects to Pluto, Saturn, etc. can indicate control or abuse, but other times these aspects indicate an opportunity to grow if both partners are willing.

No one in the world has a perfect chart. We will always have some difficult aspects with the person who we choose to be with long-term. These aspects help to grow and also create glue in a relationship. In my opinion, no astrological chart will work without at least a few difficult aspects to create tension.

Difficult aspects also help us to learn what we are here to learn. These aspects aid us in our soul journey.

Only you know if the hard aspects in your synastry chart indicate a serious problem that means you need to leave the relationship, or an opportunity to grow and learn.

Juno aspects show both karmic soul contracts and the ways you can learn in this relationship.

Juno Aspects to the Sun

Sun Conjunct Juno/Sun Trine Juno Synastry

With both sun conjunct Juno and sun trine Juno in synastry, the kind of partner the Juno person needs is fundamentally who the Sun person is. This relationship is an easy pairing and can often signify marriage.

If you have sun conjunct Juno or sun trine Juno in a synastry chart, pursue that relationship for sure!

Sun Sextile Juno Synastry

With sun sextile Juno in synastry, the Sun person is decently compatible with the energy that the Juno person needs in a relationship, although this is not necessarily a past life connection. The personality connection is definitely there, but it must be developed.

There is an opportunity to further develop this relationship and for it to be successful with sun sextile Juno in synastry.

Sun Opposition Juno Synastry

Sun opposition Juno in synastry creates a draw. However, there can be the issue of selfishness (usually of the Sun person, although not always), that needs to be worked through before the relationship can flourish.

I find that the sun opposition Juno aspect can create a lot of attraction but also a bit of tension when the personalities aren’t compatible with what the partners need out of a marriage.

Sun Square Juno Synastry

Something about the way that the sun person fundamentally is causes a clash between the two partners, as well as issues for the Juno person with the sun square Juno aspect in synastry.

Sun square Juno in synastry can also causes a magnetism that initially draws the couple together. This is a very dynamic aspect.

You may both feel that the other is selfish in the relationship and will need to work through ego issues. You can feel as though you’re “pitted against” each other, so a good deal of ego work is necessary for the relationship to work.

Juno Aspects to the Moon

Moon Conjunct Juno Synastry

The moon conjunct Juno relationship shows that the Juno person is perfectly aligned with the emotions of the moon person.

This is a very auspicious aspect for a long term relationship, because the Juno person will be so compatible with and understanding of the moon person’s emotions. Neither party often feels neglected, but instead emotionally supported.

Moon conjunct Juno in synastry shows a lot of emotional intelligence!

Moon Trine Juno Synastry

With moon trine Juno in synastry, both parties connect on a deep, emotional level, and know how to support each other in a healthy way.

The relationship is very soft and loving. Both people may nurture the other through difficult childhood issues that come up.

Moon Sextile Juno Synastry

There is an opportunity for both partners to learn how the other needs nurture and emotional support. Moon sextile Juno in synastry is an easy aspect, but it will take a bit of work for each of the partners to learn the other.

Moon Opposition Juno Synastry

With moon opposition Juno in synastry, the moon person’s emotions are at odd with what the Juno person needs in a relationship to be supported.

The Juno individual doesn’t not know how to comfort the moon person and may either turn away or become a sort of surrogate parent by being over-involved in the moon person’s emotions. They don’t have healthy emotional boundaries.

This aspect can occasionally (certainly not always) represent a push-pull between the spouse and the mother moon person’s mother.

Alternatively, the moon person may cause emotional upheaval in the relationship, or there may be emotional coldness in the relationship.

Moon Square Juno Synastry

With the moon square Juno synastry aspect, the moon person’s emotions will clash with what the Juno person is looking for in a relationship. The moon person may be up and down while the Juno person is looking for emotional stability, or vice-versa.

Occasionally, mental illness dominates the relationship, or the relationship is emotionally cold.

Sometimes, this aspect can mean that the moon person’s mother causes issues in the relationship.

Juno Aspects to Mercury

Mercury Conjunct Juno Synastry

With the Mercury conjunct Juno synastry aspect, the Mercury person has great mental capacity and thinks/communicates in a way that fits perfectly with the kind of relationship the Juno person needs.

Communication is flawless and easy in this relationship! Mercury conjunct Juno in synastry is a great aspect, especially for couples who really value communication and intelligence.

Mercury Trine Juno Synastry

Communication will be easy and natural between the couple with the Mercury trine Juno synastry aspect. They may also enjoy talking about intellectual subjects.

The Mercury trine Juno aspect makes it really easy to get along and talk about the big topics. Look to the signs that both planets are in; these are the areas where you will especially enjoy communication and intellectual discussion as a couple.

Mercury Sextile Juno Synastry

While communication might not be flawless at first with the Mercury sextile Juno synastry aspect, if the couple is willing to work on it, then there is an opportunity for great communication in this relationship.

Both parties will need to learn how the other thinks and operates in a logical sense.

Mercury Opposition Juno Synastry

There will be some communication issues in this relationship with the Mercury opposition Juno synastry aspect; both people may communicate in totally opposite ways, specifically in this relationship.

There will need to be a meeting in the middle for the relationship to flourish. Couples’ therapy can help a lot with the Mercury opposition Juno aspect because it will teach partners how to communicate in a way that the other understands.

Mercury Square Juno Synastry

There are big communication problems with this Mercury square Juno synastry aspect. The partners may communicate in vastly different ways, feel like they’re always on different planes, talk over each other, or simply not communicate.

There must a willingness from both parties to resolve these differences. Again, couples’ therapy or learning about communication can help.

I do find that there is a lot of anger with the Mercury square Juno synastry aspect that needs to be worked through before real communication can happen.
