    sun is in taurus, with taurus rising

    it is square with my aquarius moon
    and i agree very much with magenta (?) about trying to please two very opposite sides of my personality all the time
    it used to be more frustrating, but now i appreciate having two such different sides, grounded and airy
    practical and mystical
    etc etc
    it keeps things exciting, its nice to continually feel that I am always learning more and more about myself

    Mine is Taurus sun, scorpio rising. I feel like 3 diff people!!! Very intuitive, but i feel like an outsider looking in. Someone mentioned they love it and hate it. i feel the same. I feel like i have "information" about others that some people are just not aware of because they're too wrapped up in themselves. but although I like being able to pick up on what people are works in my advantage also gives me anxiety at times which i hate. i guess i have to learn to love it cus this is my astro makeup!!!

      you have the same placements as me

      I am also Scorp Rising, Tau Sun and Aqua Moon

      its hard reconciling all part of the self as they all seem so different, I relate to what you wrote about perceptions and picking up on things.

          I find this is so typical of Aqua Moons, including myself - the "bonus" of anxiety that comes with finding a balance between appearing socially "eccentric", (or intriguing, lol) and embracing that trait entirely and proudly; while also making sure that you're we're not socially outcast; a really unpleasant position for anyone to be in...

          But, because of Aqua Moon's constant need to express share their uniqueness with people who appreciate it, it is paramount that an Aqua Moon feels secure that he/she will not become socially isolated, which would restrict the opportunities to attract new people, exchange new ideas and learn about life buy observing the many different characters we enjoy having in our company.

          Without those experiences in an Aqua Moon's life, they may find themselves in a rut of self isolation, which may lead to an over-stimulated, sleep deprived, sometimes self-centred outlook (while avoiding Arrogance at any cost). Without the welcome distraction of other people around, will find their other-worldly senses become increasingly powerful - we maybe even a bit too sensitive to the energies of life, which is amplified rapidly when we experience a rut of inward reflection and introspective. We become increasingly aware of things such as the energy of numbers (numerology), the evolution of social consciousness, the energy around us and of course which of course influences erveyone as much as we influence it - the Universe - a lot more than most realise.

          And of course, having the Moon in Aquarius, we can become pwerfully aware of the effect of the 28 day lunar cycle - the peak (and occasionally valley) of the full moon - the refreshment that comes a new moon, and of course the rise and fall in between.

          Far too much bombardment of so much we're aware or but not entirely sure of from the energy of the Universe all around us, can become a little too "loud", and for me, with an Aries ascendant and the Aqua Moon in my tenth house, it can actually become obsessive - a benign obsession, but an obsession nonetheless. It of course may lead to health problems and I think this is true for a lot of Aqua Moons, certainly myself, especially with Neptune (commonly signifying drugs) being within orb of a conjunction to my Aqua Moon for about 15 months now I think...

          Back to the point - :) In my opinion, the reason that the person with an Aqua Moon will experience anxiety is because that is an emotion usually bundled with the need to keep the balance. Making sure they maintain their unique, and somewhat rarely fascinating traits, while keeping that characteristic in a consistent equilibrium by being involved with other people - sharing ideas, opinions, emotions. It's difficult to do this if one comes across as "crazy" or "too weird" - sure, perhaps these are labels created by people with not-so-open minds, but, for me at least and for most Aqua Moons, I suspect, we want to meet people from all walks of life - we are discerning, definitely, but we don't care to pass judgement harshly.

          Anyway as usually I've over typed. :) Now I don't even have time to proof read, lol.

          I'm new to but would love talking to some people one on one who .. well really anyone, this seems like a forum with great group of people on board. :)

            I so agree with virtually everything you said! Welcome to tribe, btw ~ I hope you get as much out of it as I have been. For me, being a 12th House Leo conjunct Pluto, and with some other "interesting" placements, in spite of the anxiety factor, I find my Aquarius moon to be a real saving grace. I have said that without it, I am sure I would be a wreck, and I mean that.

              Same, yet it can create so much intensity for me, I think I'd be lost without the Aries Ascendant I have, but I'd still choose the Aqua Moon any day. It's a mixed blessing but it's a worthwhile one.

              Neptune transiting over my Aqua Moon has made everything especially intense - transit Neptune is currently at 21 degrees Aqua, my Aqua Moon at 23 Aqua in the 10th. Jupiter also about to enter my 10th in the coming month or two, then of course, not tooo long after, will transit my Aqua Moon, very soon. No wonder I'm feeling as wound up as an alarm clock lately :)

              What house is your Aqua Moon placed; has Neptune transited over it already or it coming up, ie, what position in Aquarius is your Natal moon at? :)

    Leo sun in the 12th house, Aquarian moon conjunct Chiron in the 5th. Pluto and Jupiter also in the Leo 12th house. I find it so funny about the long-term vanishing acts -- that is definitely what I do. I really like to mouse nest. It is so easy to feel overwhelmed. Fortunately, I have a tolerant set of associates, and I tend to look for the sorts of people who are either similarly inclined or who are too busy with other things to feel neglected. If I had a squishier moon, I am sure I would be a wreck.

    Capricorn sun here! sometimes it feels like the perfect balance between craziness and practicality, but other times it seems like two sides that can never be happy at the same time. Following a schedule is impossible for me, but then I beat myself up for failing at following a plan. I always forget little details like getting the laundry out of the dryer, but then get mad at myself for wasted time. I definitely give a first impression of being more conventional than most aqua moons.....people are often surprised by my quirkiness and liberal mindedness.

    As far as the plus side? Aqua moon definitely makes serious Capricorn sun lighten up, but there's still a shell to break out of.

    Hi Gabby,

    I've a Libran Sun in the sixth, which gives me a routine diplomatic fairness and adds a practical tone to my sky's the limit ambitions, obviously I've an Aquarian Moon in the tenth which reflects my desire to live a public life as a creator - ie writer, actor, singer; it also gives me the Aqua-Moon eccentricity and spirtuality ...

    It is my Aries ascendant though, which I believe provides me the ambition, the determination, the vanity (a necessity in "the business" to be camera ready) and the essential fire of confidence; it is the Aries in me that seems to tie it all together in a practical, business-is-business sense. Plus it protects me a lot, because my arty - spirtiual - love-not-war dynamic can lead me to be taken advantage of - if it weren't for the fire of Aries, who knows when to lay down the law, in no uncertain terms. My Aries ascendant also bolsters the power of my sensitive Aqua Moon and provides my femme-influenced Libra Sun with a balance of masculinity. Without Aries there, demanding the respect he deserves, I very much believe I'd have become consumed with self doubt, unmanageable nervous tension and life threatening embarrassment of my eccentricities and my talents.

    And let's not forget that a Libran Sun can display a fierce temper if he feels an injustice has been committed. For me, in those circumstances, my Aqua-moon kicks in and instead of projecting aggression, my Aqua-Moon (especially under Neptune's influence) is more inclined to manifest those feelings as anxiety, nervous tension, and can lead to overindulgence with drugs and alcohol.

    Of course, Aries as an Ascendant doesn't like to share that with most, as he fears it will be perceived as weakness. Only when my Aqua Moon is emancipated, set free by sharing itself via a public life (as every 10th house Aqua Moon has the desire and potential to be, especially if close to the 11th house cusp) will my Aries ascendant relax and rejoice, for he'll no longer have nothing to hide.


    Didn't mean to write so much, hope it helps.

      It's interesting to hear this from another Aqua moon. I have a Leo sun, a Sagittarius rising, and an Aries mars, giving me an incredible amount of fiery energy, but I've always found it puzzling that all that positive energy often manifests itself internally as anxiety. I find that I think about feeling more than I actually feel, and that's the most frustrating part of it all I think. When your brain is compensating for what your heart should be dealing with, it makes for information overload! Anxiety, nervous tension, and overindulgence with drugs and alcohol. There you go.

      There's an insatiable need in me to keep the peace between myself and everyone else, and it's frustrating to feel different, to know your ideas and your thought processes are somewhat outside the box, and to simultaneously want to maintain harmony with the rest of the world. I guess it's just a matter of finding a balance and understanding what to keep internalized and what is acceptable to express.

    Capricorn...but my moon, rising, venus and mars are all in Aquarius!! Sometimes I feel in conflict with myself...I want security but crave freedom and I'm most def not a conventional Capricorn!

    My Sun's in Gemini and Moon's in Aquarius. They're one degree from trining one another, but I think they harmonize. My Moon's at a critical degree and the most important people in my life have aspected my Moon synastrically and the same for the most important events.

    Grant Lewi says in "Heaven Knows What" that with this Sun/Moon blend there are gifts of foresight and insight that makes the future clear in terms of the present. With astrology I'd have to say that's mostly true for me : )

        I'm a Taurus Sun Cap Rising but I've connected most of all with your comments most Temazcula, especially the anxiety which is driving me crazy!! and the need to keep the peace. Temazcula as you get older does it seem that you can handle your anxiety better, I'm still a teen and sometimes I think if I should get a shrink or something because the anxiety is just too overwhelming!!!

          Hi April.

          I'm 22 and I actually didn't feel this sort of anxiety until recently. I always felt like I was on the outside looking in, sort of detached form everyone and everything, but I was always really proud of that quality. I think the anxiety now is coming from a fear that as I get older I'm going to have an impossible time connecting with anyone on a really human level. But at the same time, the more life experience you get and the more you get to know yourself, the better you become at handling things the way you need to handle them. Life gets harder as you go along but you get stronger, you know? At least you're self aware enough to recognize what's going on inside of you and curious enough to think about it. Where do you think your anxieties come from?

            I think most of my anxieties come from the changes I've made throughout my life. I've moved about 8 times so far, mostly becuase my family moved alot. While my aquarius moon eagerly seeks it, my taurus sun fears it. I love the idea of moving to different places, but it's like once I get there I have trouble adapting, and I start to regret that I wanted to move in the first place. So I think it comes mainly from having to adapt to new surroundings and new people. I just moved last September and it has taken me a while to fit into my new home. It has recently gotten alot better now that I know what to expect. However, when I'm at school I get anxiety the worst, having to make new friends is not easy for me, is not that I'm shy its just that I like to observe people and the way they act because I would hate to offend anyone and create turmoil that would really raise my anxiety rhough the roof and cause me to tense up.

    my sun is in sag, though i am 'on the cusp' (b. on the 24th)
    my rising is capricorn

    idk i don't identify with sag
    i identify more with scorpio honestly
    my pluto's in scorpio and that squares with my moon
    i don't know enough about astrology to know what that means though
    -totally lost- :[

    I have a Pisces sun and Scorpio ascendent.
    No one has ever guessed me to be a Pisces.
    I've been told by friends that I lack empathy and can be really blunt or sarcastic so I guess my aqua moon overshadows my Pisces sun ;)
    I'm also the one friends & family seek out for un-biased advice with their emotional issues. I sometimes find myself stuck at the bar listening to strangers pour out their hearts. Could that be the Scorpio Asc coming into play?

    sun in Aries, with Pisces Rising. Unfortunately I attract a lot of water signs since Pisces in my first house, but my need for objectivity makes it hard to foster long-term relationships without a lot of sacrifice.
