The Sun in the 12 Signs  sun

Astrology Sun signs

Every chart reading should begin with the Sun as the primary focus of astrology. The Sun's position in the zodiac is very important, and most agree it deserves first consideration. It's the core of the individual; the overriding nature and will. This is the influence that describes the "you" that is trying to be in this lifetime. This is your "awake" side, your consciousness and outer-directed individuality. Thus, the Sun is the most important single indicator, fueling the total personality. The nature of your Sun sign is your true colors that you display to the world day in and day out. The Sun passes through the 12 signs in one year.

Sun in Aries 

Astrology Sun sign is Aries

The Sun is in this first sign of the zodiac from March 21 to April 20 each year. The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.
In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
 
You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.
 
You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
 
With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.

.

Sun in Taurus

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and the Sun resides in this sign from 21 April until 20 May each year. The symbol of Taurus is the Bull, for reasons that will be developed in the next few paragraphs.
 
As a Taurus, you are likely to be very patient, a hard worker, and one of those people who constantly puts forth much sustained effort. Your demeanor is slow and deliberate, and attempts by others to hurry you rarely succeed. You need time to adjust to new ideas and changes. You can be stubborn to the point of becoming rigid, but you are practical and constructive in nearly everything you do. You carefully consider options before starting any action or coming to any conclusion. You function best under conditions where there is predictability, and where you can exercise a degree of control.
 
Good-natured and friendly, your placid demeanor rarely shows upset or anger. When you are aroused, as suggested by the symbol of the sign, your reactions are very much like those of the angered bull. This anger can be reckless, and often lingers.
 
There is a certain reluctance in the Taurus nature to try anything new or different. You don't take many chances, and you believe in sticking with the familiar and comfortable. There is not much adventure in your soul, and it is probably fair to label you a conservative individual. The danger with Taurus is the tendency to become too narrow-minded, and to dismiss anything that can't be seen, touched, smelled or tasted.
You are not usually the first to learn a lesson, but when it is mastered, you are not likely ever to forget. Retentive and steadfast, you don't scatter your energies. You may be lazy at times, perhaps not spending any energy at all for extended periods. Yet long term, you are very willing to assume responsibility and shoulder more than your fair share of the load.
 
You may be materialistic, often showing interests in money, security, and comforts in life. To those you love, you often show your feelings in a material way, and you appreciate the same in return. The Taurus personality is sometimes too concerned with money and possessions. Perhaps a little indulgent and luxury-loving, you relish creature comforts and appreciate beautiful possessions. Because of these interests, you have good taste in clothing and furnishings. You also may have a talent for landscaping and working with plants and flowers to make your surrounding more pleasant and appealing.
 
You may excel as a cook, but even if you don't have the inclination to prepare it, you certainly enjoy food; perhaps too much. Because of this, you may have a battle with your weight. A slow metabolism and lack of interest in exercise often compound this problem.
 
A natural interest in art and music often leads to careers or hobby pursuits in some form of art. Taurus is the sign that rules the throat, so you may have a fine singing and speaking voice.
 
Love relationships are very important to you. Since you don't like being alone, you may settle for a partnership that is less than ideal, instead of accepting loneliness. Once settled in a relationship, you are very steadfast and dependable. You are exceedingly loyal, and make a very faithful friend. The most appealing aspect of Taurus, that sweet and loving temperament, is the often present when the Sun appears in Taurus.

.

Sun in Gemini

The Sun is in this third sign of the zodiac from 21 May until 21 June each year. The symbol for Gemini is the Twins, and its planetary ruler is Mercury.
 
In Gemini the Sun is active, restless and changeable. You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
 
Being very curious, you want to know and experience as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
 
To the Gemini person, communication is of utmost importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate. Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any routine type job.
 
Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship, and really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games, conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll becomes very dispirited and morose.

.

Sun in Cancer

The Sun is in this fourth sign of the zodiac from 22 June until 22 July each year. The symbol for Cancer is the Crab, with its protective shell. People with this Sun sign are sometimes also called "Moon Children," because the Moon is the ruler of the sign.
 
In Cancer the Sun is receptive and moody. You are a very sensitive person who is easily influenced by your environment. You are likely to be exceedingly protective of your feelings, as well as the feelings of those to whom you are close. Emotions are strong in your nature. You approach life with many feelings and a strong nurturing tendency. Your moods are varied and changeable. They are synchronized to the Moon, flowing in and out like the tide. You are acutely aware of the atmosphere of feelings surrounding you. You're skeptical and distrustful of people. It's not what they say, but simply the way they say it and the way you interpret their meaning.
 
You need to tell your deepest thoughts. When those around you are not receptive, you can become quite difficult to reach. The "crabby" part of Cancer shows up once in awhile, as well. When these moods are in control of your behavior, you can snap someone's head off for no reason at all. People you live around have to learn that you are not really angry with them. This is just the way Moon children are sometimes. By nature you are quiet and somewhat reserved, frequently retreating or putting up a protective barrier when you feel in any way threatened.
 
You are attuned to the past. You tend to cling to reminders and memorabilia of your family and of earlier times. Many Cancers are attracted to collecting antiques. You may be one of those people who collects just about everything. It's hard for you to part with something when there may be a chance need some rainy day, no matter how remote that chance may be. Cancers are the original "pack-rats."
 
You place much importance on the home and family. Your family or your "family of friends" is the center of your life. They provide you your sense of security and belonging. Your role in this environment is the source of your self-esteem and often overshadow your sense of individuality. It's hard to break away from your early upbringing and depart from the family traditions you have experienced. Cancer is the sign of motherhood. In both sexes, it produces a parenting instinct that is caring, protective, and indulging. Even unmarried Cancers adopt friends, co-workers, and neighbors in an extended family situation.
 
Hardworking and dedicated, you make an excellent employee. You are loyal and respect authority. This makes you supportive and protective of the boss and rarely questioning company policy. You do find it very difficult to handle change and disruption. If you are the boss, you like your employees to be dedicated as you are. Unfortunately, sometimes you may surround yourself with "yes men" who simply reinforce your decisions. You don't take chances or risk sweeping change.
 
Money is very important to you. Not for what it will buy or for the freedom it provides, but for the sense of security it provides. No matter what else is to be said of Cancer, security and having the protective shell in place, is overriding.

.

Sun in Leo

Leo is the fifth sign of the zodiac. The Sun is in this sign from 23 July until 22 August each year. The symbol for Leo is the Lion, and most Leo natives display many of regal traits of the king of beasts.
 
In Leo, the Sun is magnetic, forceful, and dominate. You possess a good nature that is very generous, allowing you to attract many friends and followers. You can easily become a natural leader because of your demeanor and because you are ambitious, determined, and highly industrious. Self-assurance and dignity are very strong in your nature. Your magnetic personality lets you sell yourself or your ideas easily, and your persistence at doing so further enhances your leadership potential. You are at your best when placed in charge of a large scheme, for you are truly a fine organizer. You enjoy being in a position of authority because you know you were born to rule. Your sunny disposition allows you to be candid, outspoken, and very direct in all matters, without upsetting people. You possess natural leadership ability, and project such confidence and authority that you inspire others to follow you.
 
The typical Leo is a natural showman, and delights in having a full measure of recognition and admiration. Leo is the most expressive sign in the zodiac. You love to show off. You probably see your role in life as the starring role. Often the Leo personality chooses some artistic form through which to express talent. There is much drama associated with Leo, and the general approach to life is full of emotional exuberance. If you are not careful, these traits can result in too large an ego, which in turn can make you very susceptible to flattery. Though you have a high opinion of yourself, you still need the approbation and appreciation of your friends and followers. Your ego needs constant reinforcement. This helps keep the spotlight focused on your activities.
 
Naturally emotionally exuberant, you are not only a good actor, but you make a truly outstanding teacher, as well. The Leo association with the fifth house of the chart suggests a strong bond with children. You may consider your children to be expressions of your creativity. Typically, the Leo is very close to children, the loving benefactor and protector.
 
The lordly Leo sometimes feels there should be an automatic granting of power and authority. Because of this, you may be one of those Leo types who doesn't feel the need to work your way to the top. Though in many ways you show that you are ambitious, you also can be lazy. You may only want to work at jobs that offer prestige, glamour, power or a good time. You exert yourself only in those situations were you can exhibit your star quality, and garner the attention and respect of others.
 
Your gift is surely the ability that you naturally possess to lead and to inspire. You are at home on the stage or at the podium. Your poorest showing comes when you are unable to control your ego, and you let an exaggerated sense of your own importance get the upper hand. In spite of your self-assurance and dignity, you may have a degree of concern about being laughed at or disgraced in some way. Again, ego is at the base of your nature and being.

.

Sun in Virgo

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, and the Sun is in this sign from 23 August until 22 September each year. The symbol for Virgo is the Virgin, denoting the puritanical demeanor usually common to those of this sign.
In Virgo the Sun is orderly and thoughtful. With the Sun in Virgo you are predisposed to be hardworking, conscientious, and well-organized. Modest, discriminating and thorough, everything you do, you do well. Practical and down to earth, you are a diligent worker with a competent, discriminating intellect. You are highly analytical and exacting, especially adapted to handling projects with painstaking perfection. Thus, you are fond of good workmanship and the utmost in quality. You are dependable because your approach is always one based on common sense and a realistic and analytical assessment of the problem.
 
You give much attention to detail, but you can carry this to extremes, becoming fussy and critical, sometimes interfering. Large-scale projects can overwhelm you because of your insistence on perfection. Unless you can deliver such quality, you may become frustrated and discouraged. There is always the tendency and danger with Virgo that the big picture idea will be missed in search of minute details. You expect yourself and everyone around you to be perfect, often setting yourself up for disappointment. Your outlook is too negative and picky sometimes.
 
Modest and unassuming, you are usually content to live in the background. Your attitude, at times, can become puritanical and prudish. You consider yourself an ordinary person, and you are never given to any airs of pretentiousness or showing off. There may be a tendency for you to see your role as one of service and "behind the scenes" support activity.
 
You have a serious attitude toward refining your mind and acquiring knowledge. With your highly varied interests, you can gain a remarkable amount of data about different subjects. You instinctively know that you must grasp all parts before you can fully understand the whole. Systematizing and detail organization are your strengths. You are idealistic, but always practical and reasonable. You're not likely to make general statements based on too few facts.
 
You may be somewhat health conscious, for you have an instinctive sense of balance in diet. You're very sensible in taking care of your health, and for that matter, the health of others. Often, the Virgo becomes exceptionally neat and orderly, even a bit neurotic about cleanliness. You're likely to be susceptible to stress related problems because you do tend to worry too much.

.

Sun in Libra

The Sun is in this seventh sign of the zodiac, from September 23 until October 22 each year. The symbol for Libra is the Scales. In Libra the Sun is tolerant, affectionate, and well balanced. You are a courteous and agreeable person who is considerate of other people's feelings. You have a personal charisma attracting friends. Functioning well when working in harmony with other people, you are an excellent team player. You like being on the winning team.
 
You prefer working in a pleasant and very orderly atmosphere, with people who don't put undue pressure on you. You like to see your role as that of peacemaker. Peace and tranquility are so important. The least sign of hostility or discord is very upsetting to you. You refrain from speaking your mind if you fear your thoughts would alienate or start an argument. Always ready to compromise or mediate, you need to be careful not to appear wishy-washy or less than reliable.
 
In many ways, you are dependent upon the approval of others. Libra is the sign of relationships. You think of yourself as half a partnership rather than an individual. Because of this feeling of dependence, you put your mate's needs and desires ahead of your own. You may become confused as to what you want at any particular time, versus what your partner wants. Your partner's goals and ambitions become your goals and ambitions. You are the true helpmate. Because of this attitude, Libra is very stable and dependent in a relationship, even a bad one.
 
As attached as you are to your partner, you may not really show it much. In your quest for balance and harmony, you rarely have or express strong emotions of any kind. Yours is a very dispassionate demeanor that is detached. You don't invest much passion or feeling in your relationships, loving with your head instead of your heart.
 
When cast in a supervisory role you may have some difficulties. This is because you weigh each decision before choosing your direction. You can experience problems if you are called on to make frequent snap decisions for the group. You are an excellent go-between, and not as good at being the leader or boss. Unfortunately, such a balanced view of situations sometimes makes decisive action more difficult. You have a hard time making everyday decisions of little or no consequence. On the big issues, you may vacillate indefinitely.
 
One of your main personality traits is a love of justice. You are insistent on fair play. In this too, you have a very balanced and unbiased way of looking at everything in your world. Accordingly, you are often called on to be mediator in family disputes or in disagreements at work. Your impartial judgment can always see both sides of a matter. You can be very cool and detached, keeping your feelings well under control in pursuit of fairness.
 
Your love of balance and harmony allows you to appreciate music and the arts. Libra is ruled by Venus, the planet closely associated with artistic endeavors. If you don't have talent yourself, you probably to do have an interest and excellent taste in these matters.
 
Courteous and refined, good manners are important to you. You exhibit them and you expect them. You are especially repelled by vulgarity and coarseness. Tactful, diplomatic, refined and socially successful, you strive to say and do the right thing. It is always so important for you to make the right impression.

.

Sun in Scorpio

The Sun resides in this eighth sign of the zodiac from 23 October until 22 November each year. The symbol for Scorpio is the Scorpion.
 
Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
 
The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
 
You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
 
In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.
 
You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
 
At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.

.

Sun in Sagittarius

The Sun is positioned in this ninth sign of the zodiac from November 23 until December 23 each year. The symbol for Sagittarius is the Archer. In Sagittarius the Sun is idealistic and optimistic. Sagittarius is the sign that espouses such high principles as universal love and world peace. As this period of the year is associated with the spirit of giving and good cheer, the Sagittarius personality is recognized for its generosity and expansive demeanor.
 
You are very gregarious, enthusiastic, and open, in all that you do. You have an ability to understand a broad perspective, and to see everything from a total point of view. Your foresight and an ability to visualize the big picture make matters work out well for you most of the time. Always thinking in broad abstract terms, you usually have trouble focusing on details that arise.
 
In many ways you are spontaneous, but with this comes an inclination to be bluntly honest and frank, or at least, straightforward and much to the point. You never intend to hurt anyone, but the truth is all important to you, and you never hesitate to tell it like it is. Tact and restraint can be issues of concern, but you probably don't care. You are so independent. You can rarely be pushed an inch in any direction unless you decide the direction your being pushed is where you want to go.
 
These blows are softened only by your warm, jovial and outgoing friendliness. Even when you stick your hoof in your mouth you can recover and show up as a winner. Often "lady luck" just smiles on you. Sagittarius has a happy-go-lucky, honest, cheerful, and ever optimistic approach to life; but then can turn right around and be so careless, restless and extravagant.
 
You have a natural love of the outdoors and may develop strong enthusiasm for sports and outdoor adventure. Sagittarius is the sign most often associated with sports, and you are inclined to physical activity and active endeavors, particularly outdoors.
 
Future-oriented, you rarely allow problems or setbacks to get you down for long. You put disappointment behind you and start working toward your next adventure. Never satisfied with moving along in slow lane, you want to set the pace on a grand scale. Whatever you set out to do, must be the biggest and best. You want to live life to its fullest. You can work well with anybody, accepting them for what they are. You are the natural, open-hearted extrovert, an easy person live and work with. Relying on your glibness and complete self-confidence, you are a natural in the world of selling. Still in the area of organization and perseverance you may need help from other factors in the chart. If you are like most Sagittarius natives, you can be down right irresponsible and unreliable at times. Your personality is such, however, that people don't get upset about it. It's that natural Sagittarius charm that carries you through the tough spots.
 
Sagittarius is the sign of higher education. You live to expand your horizons in every possible way, wanting to see the world and experience it. You want to meet interesting people and try everything. Your curiosity is boundless and your desire for knowledge is paramount.

.

Sun in Capricorn

The Sun is in this tenth sign of the zodiac from 23 December until 20 January every year. The symbol of Capricorn is the Goat. Capricorn is associated with the harshness of winter and its stark realities.
 
In Capricorn, the Sun is strongly goal-directed and persistent. Ambitious, serious and dedicated to duty, life is difficult, but you are the type of person who will triumph and achieve success. Your aptitude to persevere, no matter how difficult the road, sets you apart from most of your peers. You are anxious to climb the ladder of fortune, and you can usually reach your goals because of your sense of the right way of doing everything. Your patience is never ending.
 
You are a very thoughtful and serious person, thinking everything through carefully before you set off in any direction. You possess excellent reasoning skills, and you can be counted on to select options that are both practical and that provide an economic advantage. Your attitude is conservative; conservative with time, money, and all other resources. Your philosophy is waste not, want not. You are also likely to be conservative in your political and social attitudes, although your age, upbringing, and education perspectives may influence this somewhat.
 
You are especially well suited to business and government because of your sense of organization and structure. You combine a talent for management with an ability to carry out instructions with care. You are the quintessential careerist, taking job and duties very seriously. Therefore, you are never one to shirk responsibility and you have very little use for those that do. That which matters most to you is your public image. You show your best face to the public. You enjoy being in a position of power and authority, although you are not very much inclined to enjoy the limelight. You may prefer instead to run your business from an isolated perspective. You are loyal and dedicated, and you demand utter loyalty and dedication from subordinates. Advancing up the ladder of success is all important. You are unconcerned about, sometimes even ruthless toward, those getting in your path as you move upward.
 
You don't handle chaotic situations very well. You may need to develop the ability to lighten up a little and not take life, and everything else so seriously. Although you are self-disciplined, responsible, and practical, at times you can wallow in self-pity. It's essential for you to remember that your most important asset is self-esteem, and you should never devalue this. Rigidity and fear of change may be your biggest stumbling block.
 
Sober and reserved in your dealings with others, it takes you a good while to warm up enough to anyone to be considered a close friend. Yet once you do, you are a very caring, reliable, and most steadfast ally. Your private side is different from your public side. In private you are shy and sensitive. The harshness of your public image disappears. Emotionally demanding relationships are very difficult. Love relationships may be more like business relationships, and you are unsure of yourself in most intimate situations.

.

Sun in Aquarius

The Sun resides in this eleventh sign of the zodiac from 21 January until 19 February every year. The symbol of Aquarius is the Water Bearer.
 
In Aquarius the Sun is eccentric and original. You're apt to be a superb thinker, and your ideas are frequently advanced, no matter what field of profession you select. Often, your unique approaches to problem solving are viewed as too radical and unworkable, but you prefer to think of them as advanced and progressive instead. Unconventional and outspoken, you see your role as the rebel and the person who rejects worn out traditions and old ways of operating. You like to be with those ushering in the new order and fostering advanced thinking.
 
Paradoxically, you're a good team player, but one who must have personal freedom. You don't like to feel fenced in. While you're headstrong and inflexible in your ways, you can work very effectively within a large group. You have complete respect for the sound ideas put forward by others. You are aloof and detached, and your concerns are directed toward society rather than to the problems of any one person. You are somewhat impersonal most of the time. You're more emotionally involved with your work than you are with people. You can be highly critical and demanding in a position of authority. Nonetheless, you are a strong leader and organizer. You have a deep understanding of human nature, but often you lack sensitivity to the emotional content of many situations.
 
You thrive on change and managing the unexpected. Always ahead of your time, you are viewed by everyone as being different and unusual, labels you don't mind accepting. You pride yourself on your ability to find a better way of doing the job. Sometimes you lack follow through, and you always dislike routine. You like to take chances and keep everything stirred up. Occasionally, you enjoy antagonizing people in positions of authority, and stimulating a good argument now and then. You don't mind that you are seen as a bit unusual, in fact, you may encourage this image.
 
Equality, freedom and fairness are all important issues for you. You strongly subscribe to the doctrine that all people are created equal and should have the same rights and opportunities. In this regard, you are likely to be classified as a progressive and often associated with humanitarian issues and causes. Though you are very involved with such matters, your approach is always somewhat in the abstract, with ideological concepts, the sort that don't usually stem from true emotions. Your approach is often very impersonal and detached.
 
Friendly and sociable, you may have a wide circle of acquaintances. Friends are very important to you. Intellectually oriented, you are happiest with friends that share common ideas and interests. Strangely, you find it more difficult to cultivate a truly satisfying intimate relationship. This aloofness exists because feelings are rarely expressed outwardly, and you usually seem distant. You resist anything or anyone threatening your independence.

.

Sun in Pisces

The Sun is in this last sign of the zodiac from 20 February until 20 March each year. The symbol for Pisces is the Fish.
 
In Pisces, the Sun is sensitive and idealistic. You are "tuned in" to your environment, and aware of everything happening in your world, and to everyone around you. Pisces is the dream sign of the zodiac. You may be one of the true dreamers of the world, often getting caught up in impractical plans and ideas. You absorb the ideas and the mental outlook of those around you, for better or for worse. The decisions that you make may be workable, if sometimes emotional and erratic. Often these decisions are made on hunches and feelings with little or no foundation in fact. Creative, spiritual and often a bit mystical, you can be impractical and illogical.
 
You're a moody and introspective person, and it's hard for others to understand you. It may be hard for you to understand yourself sometimes. Your temperament varies from being optimistic to being acutely pessimistic.
Although you may be very shy and unassuming, you care deeply about your stature and succeeding in your endeavors. You may feel vulnerable and anxious when you are unsure of your status and circumstances. You have a deeply hidden inner pride and when this is attacked in any way, you react emotionally.
 
Compassionate, tolerant, kind, and loving, you are easily influenced by others because you don't want to hurt anyone. Always charming and likable, you are good to those in distress. You are as fond of animals as you are people. You are sympathetic to the world's unfortunate, including every stray animal and helpless soul you meet. You are more concerned with others' well-being than your own, and you want to save people from themselves. You are easily taken in by a hard-luck story and often leave yourself open to be used. You are always there with a shoulder to cry on for your friends in need. Frequently people take advantage of this compassionate nature.
 
If you are a typical Pisces, you're likely to suffer from an inferiority complex. You probably lack an adequate sense of self-confidence, as you are so very sensitive, shy and introspective. You never feel that you do enough, so you often overwork, putting stress on your physical body. In your quiet way, you accomplish much. Having a natural tendency to become a workaholic, you must have a generous amount of escape time, preferably with total solitude.
 
Pisces, more than any other sign, draws strength or weakness from the rest of the horoscope. The nature of Pisces is very adaptable and pliable. You may have to fight for a sense of stability and to resist the impulses of the moment.

The Moon in the Twelve Signsmoon

Astrology Signs - Moon

The Moon's position in your chart is almost as important as the Sun, but the influence is different. The moon is your emotional life. It relates to immediate emotional responses. It's those reactions instilled by conditioning; the memory and learned habit patterns. The influence of the Moon is more subtle, for it relates to personality beneath the surface; your feelings and your subconscious self. It shows how you react to those around you based on the sum of your conditioned viewpoint and unguarded self-projection. Often, the Moon's place in the chart shows a considerably different side of the nature, a side fostered by emotions, upbringing, and habit patterns that have developed over time.

Moon in Aries

An Aries Moon produces subconscious reactions in your nature that are highly assertive. You respond to life as though it was an adventure. This Moon produces one who is open to new ideas and one who is highly self-motivated. You have a strong underlying drive for success that is associated with your emotional nature. You tend to feel with your ego, as your feelings tend to compete with your ego much of the time. Your senses are quick. So much so, that you may seem pushy at times. Your temperament can be uneven, liable to flare ups at the slightest provocation. You make quick decisions, trusting your sense perceptions, and acting immediately without reflection. You jump into action from your quick feelings instead of from reason. You have an active mind, and what you are thinking is often quickly verbalized. When this emotional side of your nature is in charge, you tend to say and do things with little forethought and planning.

With Moon in Aries you're enthusiastic and naļve, each day becomes a new adventure. You express a joy of living and people are attracted to you for it. Even so, you have a bit of the rogue and rascal in you.

You can be emotionally detached from the people around you, somewhat reluctant to ask for help, even when you need it. The nature that has developed and the habits learned make you very independent. You feel with your ego. You don't much care for advice, and rarely follow the advice you get. There is much in your instinctive nature that is original and restless. Sometimes you get too assertive, and those that know you well realize you have a quick temper. You aren't one who always plays by the rules, as you are something of a renegade. To a degree, Moon in Aries hides a sense of insecurity behind an independent and assertive exterior.

Extremely competitive, you love a challenge from a worthy opponent. You tend to see just about everything as a challenge and everyone as an opponent. Its hard for you to give in on anything and compromise is generally an option you don't exercise. Intensely individualistic, it's hard to see someone else's point of view. Oddly enough, when it comes to a romantic partner, you'll insist on someone who is not shy about standing up to you.

.

Moon in Taurus

A Taurus Moon emphasizes the material side of life, and emotions are centered on the comforts and possessions in life. You tend to be a collector and an accumulator of the things that, in your view, make up the "good life." With the Moon in Taurus, you want the best that life has to offer, and you find it difficult to settle for less. The emotions are earthy and practical, highly attracted to material possessions and the satisfactions that come from material comforts. Your fondness for wealth and inborn understanding of the material world might result in a natural business sense and a gift for making money.

This is a stable position for the Moon; reactions and emotional responses are slow, but full. Easygoing, even-tempered, and good-natured, you are a great companion and a devoted friend. You don't anger easy; you believe in loving, not fighting. Little annoyances don't really bother you very much. There is a deep emotional need to gratify physical appetites. You can be very possessive, and sometimes quite self-indulgent. Stable and steady, loyal and lasting, you are a determined, if sometimes stubborn person.

In a romantic sense, no lover of yours will ever want for affection. On the other hand, this person may feel a little smothered by your possessiveness. Yours is a strong sense of ownership, and this may extend to your partner in a romance. It is important to remember that you can't buy love and you don't own your lover. Your needs and desires are simple, down-to-earth and of a practical, physical nature. Sensual and strongly sexual, your enjoyment of sex is direct and unabashed. You very much like physical contact; hugs and back rubs. With friends and lovers you can be quite demonstrative.

Sense impressions are very strong, the sense of touch and taste is highly developed, and you probably have a pleasant speaking and singing voice. At least you are fond of music, art, dancing and all things that make life more pleasurable. You innate good taste probably extends to decorating the home and having a great sense for interior design.

You have deep powers of concentration and generally a conservative outlook. Your ideas are very conventional. You only welcome those ideas which are compatible with your stable temperament. Conservative and conventional, you have to avoid becoming narrow-minded and fixed in your opinions. You don't like contradiction, simply because you don't like to argue. You will stick to your ideals through thick and thin, being blindly faithful, sentimental, affectionate and basically timid.

.

Moon in Gemini

A Gemini Moon gives quick responses and the ability to learn rapidly. You're quite articulate and witty, with a tendency to feel with your mind. Using emotions of the bantam, lightweight variety; you're adaptable, and quite attracted to mental stimulation. The social sign of Gemini yields a happy and easy-going emotional personality.

A trademark of Gemini is observation, as impressions seem to form quickly. With the Moon in Gemini, you are able to verbalize all sorts of observations with amazing speed. You are quite mentally alert, versatile and perceptive, chiefly interested in the intimate contact of the moment.

Friendly, gregarious and sociable, you're likely to have a lot of friends, lovers and acquaintances. You truly like people, and they like you. Communication with people is all important to you. All types of communication interest you, and you are never at a loss for words. You have a natural ability to communicate; both orally and in writing.

Your emotional personality requires variety and novelty rather than durability and depth of feeling. In fact, you may be incapable of long-sustained feelings, or of undivided interests. Moods are changeable; you can be up one minute and down the next, and because of this, you tend to be somewhat nervous much of the time. Sometimes can appear superficial because you seemingly lack real perseverance, constantly jumping from one project to another. Actually, you are torn apart by changing feelings, and you can spread yourself too thin and scatter your forces. Your restless nature is always searching for something new.

You have the instinct to always be adaptable and flexible, and the capacity to be a little shrewd when you want to be. This attribute becomes pronounced because your senses serve the intellect rather than the emotions. The result is an ability for dispassionate observation and reasoning. A life-long student, you want to learn a little about everything.

Moon in Gemini yields a highly developed sense of humor which makes you fun to be around. Shrewd by natural instinct, you know how to play up to others and get what you want, including your romantic partners. Emotionally shallow, you don't tend to form strong attachments or get deeply involved romantically. Gemini fails to rank as one of the more domestic Moon positions. You seem to have a psychological need to do a lot of different things before you settle down to have and raise a family. Having your own home is not necessarily one of you primary goals. You want a life that won't tie you down and restrict your mobility. Freedom is important to you, and you don't want to be restricted by emotional demands.

.

Moon in Cancer

A Cancer Moon gives a strong drive for recognition and acceptance. You are highly sensitive and creative, if somewhat given to brooding and moodiness.

You rarely go out of your way to garner new information, but once something sinks into your mind, it is indelibly impressed upon it. Everything that you experience is held in feeling memory. You let your heart rule your head, and you can have trouble making rational, detached decisions. Yet your intuition is quite keen, and you would be smart to rely on it. You have an almost psychic ability to "tune in" to what other people are thinking and feeling. By nature, you're suspicious and distrusting, although, surprisingly, you tend to almost naively trust your own feelings and gut hunches.

The Cancer influence is often far too sensitive surroundings. This over-sensitive nature can be a positive or a negative; on the positive side, you are no doubt very intuitive; on the negative side, you are moody and subject to emotional upsets. This thin-skinned attitude toward outside influences causes you to pick up negative vibrations from others. You are frequently moody and prone to having problems in personal relationships. Often, Cancer Moon people wear their heart on their sleeve, but like so many of them, you may have a habit of hiding your true feelings and strong emotions under a rather hard shell.

You have an especially strong love of home and family, and you staunchly protect your personal security. In Cancer, the emotions reflected by the Moon are sensitive to matters that affect people as a whole, the "universal parent." Towards loved ones, you are gentle, peaceful, and romantic. You have a nurturing attitude toward your family and to those you consider under your very broad protective "wing." Security is of primary importance to you, but often you feel your life lacks the comfort of inherent stability. Things that offer a sense of protection become very important: money, material belongings, family, home, country, and traditions, may all be included in this. Change, risk-taking, relocating, and opinions differing from your own are things that pose a challenge to your security, and are usually rejected accordingly. You have a great deal of apprehension regarding matters outside of your own personal control.

.

Moon in Leo

A Leo Moon produces an air of confidence and a desire to lead. Self-confident, cheerful and optimistic, your emotional outlook on life is positive and upbeat. In Leo, the emotions are carefree, gay, and often pleasure-seeking.

Self-sufficient and self-reliant, you get deeply and emotionally involved with all that you do. This Moon definitely accents personality, and causes a tendency toward display. It is likely that an attitude has been instilled in you that you can do anything you want, and that your creative ability has no actual bounds. You may have been spoiled somewhat. There is a need to be admired and applauded, and you seek appreciation constantly. You have an innate sense of the dramatic and always do things with a flair. Something of a showman, entertaining may come naturally for you. You seem to thrive on constant attention and you are something of a flirt, expecting the object of your flirtations to be responsive, as well.

The Moon has a natural association with the fourth house of the horoscope, or the home. Moon in Leo gives a natural creative flair to make the home a show place. You may have a gift for interior design and be good with color and decorating. You think of your home as your castle, and you may have a tendency to overextend yourself financially to impress others with your fine life-style.

You are uplifted socially and you command respect. Your reactions are straight-forward and usually dignified, enabling you to garner esteem and responsibility. You have a deep-seated need for this respect and nothing hurts you more than not feeling as though you are appreciated. One thing you can't handle very well is someone stepping on your pride.

There is a natural love of luxury and a desire for social pomp and prominence as Moon in Leo lends a certain nobility to the persona. There may be an inborn tendency to be somewhat pretentious. Thus, sometimes you can be a little self-centered and even pompous, lacking objectivity and having a blind spot in your emotional perspective. It's very hard for you to ever back down or to accept any sort of a compromise.

The Moon in Leo tends to produce a loving and very devoted parent, boss, or ruler, but it is important that leadership potential not be spoiled by the tendency towards being bossy, arrogance, and displaying an overbearing ego. Emotions are powerful with Moon in Leo, and the drive for prominence and power is very strong, as well. Unless the Moon is harshly aspected, you should be like the benevolent monarch, having a great sense of charity and being a rather generous person. You are one who projects concern with an optimistic approach to life.

.

Moon in Virgo

A Virgo Moon generates a definite reserve in expression, and a personality that is often critical and analytical. You are not unemotional, but it is difficult for you to delineate what you feel. Consequently, you can sometimes come across as a little cold, detached, or prudish. You can seem stuffy and proud, when in fact, you are rather easily hurt.

Your desire to be considered superior intellectually may be a cover for a deep-seated inferiority complex. Often, this position denotes a shyness and a decided lack of self-confidence. You respond well to encouragement and appreciation, and you have a need for these to stay your emotionally overeager nature. Overly critical of yourself, you assume that people will judge you harshly and find you lacking. You may feel that people don't like you, for this is a placement that shows much lack of self-esteem. Thus, you tend to pretty much keep your feelings under wraps.

You have a desire to serve others, but not enough understanding of the other person's feelings. Consequently, you follow your intellect rather than your intuitions in most situations. You have trouble understanding other people's motivations and intentions. Your reactions are often rather cool, deliberate, detailed and analytical. You don't like emotional expressions, because you really don't understand them. Analyzing emotions may occupy a good bit of your time.

This is not a very sexual position for the Moon for there is an introverted aspect to this placement. Even when your feelings are engaged, your shyness makes it hard for you to be demonstrative with your affections. Instead you express caring by doing things for the people you love, trying to make yourself indispensable to your loved ones so they won't be able to get along without you. Whether in a relationship or not, you enjoy doing things for people and you are at your best when you are able to take care of someone who is needy. You never shy away from such responsibility.

You do understand reality and practicality, and you react in a very common sense manner, never viewing the world through "rose colored glasses". Mental qualities are emphasized by this position, but the qualities in Virgo are practical and useful. You want what you want, when and how you want it. You don't value learning for learning sake, but for the use and application that can be made of the learning. Temperamental at times, you tend to get picky and argumentative. You are shrewd, with good business sense and meticulous attention to detail. You analyze and criticize all sense impression with care; sometimes you can be quite fussy about minor details.

.

Moon in Libra

A Libra Moon gives a sense of understanding, tolerance, and gentleness. You are ambitious, but at the same time, so very dependent on others. The symbol of Libra is the scales, signifying the innate symmetry the influence provides. This is the position of the diplomat, broad-minded and open, social, and friendly.

The adaptability of this Moon sign is considerable; you don't like disputes and disorder, and you do what you can to maintain a well-oiled social and business life. Balance, harmony and domestic tranquility are very important to you. Even-tempered, well-mannered and congenial, you display all those attributes that assures many friends and an active social life. You are truly a thoughtful and good-natured person who goes out of the way to be nice to people. You are very fond of people and don't enjoy being alone for very long. You have a need to have everyone like you, and your emotional well-being depends on the approval others. Thus, you are over-anxious to please. This is the sign of the consummate peacemaker and diplomat.

Your nature is affectionate and easily swayed, often exhibiting a tendency towards indolence. Sometimes you tend to have too much reliance on others and you may delay making important decisions. At many times, you seem to be facing life's problems and decisions on more or less a trial and error basis. Too willing to compromise, you frequently allow others to take advantage of you. You freely sacrifice your own wishes for someone else's. It is very hard for you to be assertive and stand up for yourself. Since you don't like conflict situations, you may refrain from expressing the dissatisfactions you have in your relationships, often waiting until it is too late to rectify the situation.

Relationships are important to your and you don't like being alone. A stable partner, you tend to settle with one special person rather than playing the field. Devoted and faithful, you spend a great deal of your time catering to the needs and desires of your mate. Stability rather than passion or excitement is your goal in a partner. It is usually thought that Libra love affairs are of the head rather than the heart. Concern with what others think and doing what is correct makes you rather conventional and conservative in all your romantic and social activities.

You are refined and you have a definite love of the refined; art, music, etc. You may have some natural artistic or musical talent. At the very least you appreciate all the finer things in life and you are apt to be a patron of the arts if your means permit.

You are a good planner, but often it is hard for you to get your plans into action and to see them through to completion. The Libra mind is more contemplative, building great ideas, but sometimes failing carry them out. Decisiveness is not usually a strong quality with Moon in Libra; the mind may be building great ideas, but you are not always ready to act on them. Decision-making can be tough, because you can usually see both sides of every issue. For you, judgment is more important than execution.

.

Moon in Scorpio

A Scorpio Moon produces emotional responses that are intense, secretive, and passionate. You must learn to handle your strong, deep feelings, as you are extremely emotional and highly sensitive.

A Scorpio Moon position gives an absolutely phenomenal memory. In ways, this is very good. Yet in other ways, it designates a person who may carry a number of psyche scars from remembering, too vividly, past events that perhaps should be forgotten. This is a difficult position for the Moon as the emotions become very powerful. You are impatient, moody and sometimes given to brooding.

The nature of this sign is not always very apparent, as you are very good at hiding your true feelings. In fact, you may be almost pathological in your secretiveness, never revealing yourself entirely. Very few people ever know very much about what goes on inside you.

Jealous, proud, and possessive, the Moon in Scorpio frequently has difficulty in romantic relationships despite the fact that this is perhaps the most sensuous of the signs. You attempt to dominate and totally control. When you become involved with someone, you throw yourself completely into the relationship. If a romantic relationship ends, you are devastated as though you had lost a piece of yourself.

You judge people too quickly, and you rarely give them a second chance once those negative vibrations have been received. You react to situations in an abrupt, impulsive and intense manner. You can be vindictive and determined when it come to getting even with someone who has wronged you. Easily hurt or offended, you are apt to hold a grudge and take revenge.

With an executive flair, you are a very determined person, achieving whatever goal is set. You're always searching for new challenges. You react to sense impressions with great accuracy, and can usually see through situations, and through people, with an extremely acute judgment. You insist on thinking for yourself, and you're not one to ever be pushed around. An extremist in much that you do, you never pursue anything halfheartedly. Even when a situation turns out to be detrimental to your well-being, you may still refuse to give it up. Emotional stubbornness marks your nature and natural reactions.

.

Moon in Sagittarius

A Sagittarius Moon is restless and lacking in continuity. Unsettled in both mind and body, you need activity and a good deal of exercise. You want to always feel free to roam and wander, both physically and mentally.

In Sagittarius, the emotions are jubilant, enthusiastic and highly optimistic. You are socially naive and blissfully unaware of real human differences. You meet people on your own terms, merging and melting into relationships with them. You are open and friendly as a puppy. Your good-natured and fun-loving manner generally produces many friends and acquaintances. Yet few of your friends are really intimate.

Rarely will you feel the need for group movements or organizations to provide you with a sense of who you are. You know who you are and where you're going. Although you may change your mental directions and modify your goals a number of times, you are quite comfortable with yourself, and where you're headed. Optimistic and idealistic, you can see the silver lining inside every cloud, and believe things will turn out for the best. Usually they do. You bounce back easily from setbacks and immediately start again. Unfortunately, you often fail to learn from your mistakes.

Your sense perceptions are accurate, but you often speak before you think. You seem to be able to form a clear picture of the world around you. Decisive in manner, you are outspoken, buoyant, and ever interested in both learning and spreading knowledge. Thus, you're a natural teacher or preacher.

As a child, your parents were probably very lenient with you, and encouraged your aptitude for adventure, both physically and mentally. Quite likely, you will encourage your children in much the same way, becoming more of a friend than an authority figure. When it comes to discipline, however, you may be a little lax. Sometimes the Sagittarius influence views children as inhibitors of freedom.

Your love relationships probably are romantic friendships rather than deep emotional commitments. You can be affectionate and enthusiastic, but your emotions are shallow, and you probably are happiest with a partner who will play, socialize and go places with you, without making heavy demands. Being free and unfettered is one of your deepest needs. Intimacy poses a certain threat to this need. As soon as you begin to care for someone, you start feeling emotionally trapped, usually choosing to regain your freedom by making an exit.

You need physical outlets for your restlessness and energy. Running, skiing, dancing and bike-riding in particular might appeal to you. Exercise can also help you keep your weight down, since you have a tendency to overindulge in food and/or drink sometimes.

You're prone to make many changes in your life; changes of residence, changes in careers, or just changes of ideals and goals. This is because you are able to maintain a great deal of control over your life, skillfully combining business and pleasure. Adventure and travel are strong urges in your makeup and you are likely to travel a great deal. You may have some reluctance to buy a home and begin collecting physical possessions because you believe these would merely tend to tie you down.

.

Moon in Capricorn

A Capricorn Moon is determined, steadfast and reliable. This sign more than any other, shows the effects of very strong and perhaps rigid parental influence. You want to be recognized as an important and powerful person chiefly because you were raised to think that way. Many of your reactions are geared toward your effort to achieve status and position. Your nature is stubbornly persistent, serious in tone, and stable. You are a very hard worker who will persist almost forever to reach a goal.

Expressing your emotions is difficult for you, and people around you may view you as a little cold, rigid and unfeeling. This appearance will persist because it is so hard for you to relax and let go. In most ways you are reserved, especially in communicating, and the way you interact with people. You are self-conscious and emotionally conservative. So serious and prudent, you tend too often to look on the dark side of matters, and express a shyness and doubt about your own worth. You are supersensitive to real, or fancied, slights. There is a subconscious tendency to become dispirited and gloomy. You can be emotionally stable and down-to-earth when things are going okay, but when they aren't, you can be down right depressing.

In relationships with others, you are loyal, devoted and highly dependable--but demonstrative you are not. You show you care by being available, by coming home on time, by providing for financial needs--rarely do you express deep emotions or seem to show your love in the more conventional ways. With your own children, you're likely to be strict and demanding. You want them to be self-sufficient and responsible. Though you may love deeply, even with closest family members, it is hard to express those most intimate feelings of affection.

A practical, steady approach to problem solving makes you an excellent manager with superb executive abilities. Security and stability are very important to you--making money, establishing yourself as a community leader, or accepting the responsibility that will secure your status and attest to your worth as an individual. Your attitude toward life in general is that of the traditionalist because you were raised to believe in solid values and a very conservative approach to living.

This placement of the Moon is difficult, but its saving grace is the fact that it easily picks up the best of a chart featuring good aspects, while it gives a sense of stability to those charts in which the aspects are particularly challenging.

.

Moon in Aquarius

An Aquarius Moon produces reactions which are progressive, but often erratic. Your friends may consider you unusual and unpredictable. Your imagination is fertile, and it produces a lot of creative energy.

You sometimes seem eccentric and unconventional in your responses to everyday problems. You're very broad-minded and imaginative, but you're also likely to be somewhat impractical and perhaps lacking in common sense, or so it may seem. Actually, you consider all that you do as being on a utilitarian level, even if many of your ideas are a bit idealistic and outside the mainstream. You have a universal quality that places you ahead of your time. An interesting conversationalist, you are a fascinating person, and a good friend.

It may be that you enjoy a good confrontation now and then and really don't want things to go too smoothly. A little on the high-stung side, you don't like things to get to routine and boring. The quickest way to end a relationship for you is to have the other person begin to take you for granted and cease to challenge you in a variety of ways. Stubborn, brusque and willful, you have difficulties in your relationships due to the insensitive attitude you so often reflect towards your partner's feelings. Women born with Moon in Aquarius are very demanding of a relationship that is entirely "equal". Even during the best of times, you may demand the freedom to come and go as you please. Possessiveness makes you feel trapped. Casual companions and relationships are much more comfortable for you because they do not impose so many demands.

Your Aquarius Moon may make you seem to be too impersonal or detached for many with whom you come in contact. You are good at observing and analyzing others, but you may lack a true understanding of the needs and feelings that other people have. You are generally friendly to all, but in a rather impersonal, cool, and aloof way. This position overemphasizes friendliness and humanitarianism, but often misses the mark in one to one emotional relationships. You may seem cold because you have difficulty understanding the real emotions of another person.

Moon in Aquarius is apt to have given you a special concern for humankind. Often, the placement denotes someone who has very fixed and determined humanitarian instincts, and who participates in activities directed toward the poor or homeless. You relate well to humanity, if not always to individuals.

The physical home is not especially important to you, and you may change your residence often or have rather unconventional living arrangements. Some may describe your lifestyle as "bohemian," modern or offbeat.

.

Moon in Pisces

A Pisces Moon indicates that you are especially sensitive, perceptive and perhaps even dreamy. You are very responsive to the depths of human experience, having an understanding and affection for nearly all people.

With the Moon in Pisces, you can be overly optimistic, sometimes looking at the world through "rose colored glasses." Emotionally naive, you continually overlook other people's shortcomings and deficiencies. You are essentially so romantic that you may rarely see life as it really is. You are tremendously unselfish, trusting and open-handed. Sometimes you can be a little too generous, especially with your boundless sympathy. This is a very passive position, and if you are not careful, others may attempt to take advantage of you. When they do, you are always so easily hurt; and you may spend much to much time feeling sorry for yourself.

You are neither analytical nor critical, but maybe a little psychic. Most astrologers agree that this is the most psychic Moon of all. Highly sensitive, you connect with others on an unconscious, emotional level. You actually feel what they feel. Thus, you have a most sympathetic and compassionate nature, and these fine instincts can be invaluable to you in the everyday world. In many situations, you can be too giving and overly-idealistic. You may have difficulty seeing your people in a clear way, preferring instead to live within a fantasy that you have created.

You expect much of yourself, even perfection, and sometimes you may get down on yourself because of this.

Mercury in Aries

Mercury in Aries suggests ways of thinking that are decisive and to the point. This Mercury is argumentative by its nature, suggesting that you enjoy competing mentally. Your thinking is original. You love creating new ideas and intellectual adventures.

You think and debate well on your feet, but you may become impatient with opponents or opposition. You hate delays. Roadblocks frustrate you to no end. This attitude may extend to areas of your life other than speech, communication, and decision-making. You may drive too fast and become very impatient in traffic, too.

You may not be able to concentrate on any one subject for very long. You jump to conclusions quickly and with little hesitation. Impulsiveness can be a problem sometimes. If this trait is not controlled in your daily living, you will appear to have a type of intellectual egotism that is most unattractive. Guard against becoming too headstrong in your thinking and decision-making. A quick temper is sometimes a by-product of this placement.

Your mind is witty and inventive, and you are usually very quick on the mental trigger. You can come up with a clever answer and a quick repartee to any question. While you may not be the best at digging deeply in to subject matter, when it comes to having some sort of an answer quickly, you will surely lead the pack.

.

Mercury in Taurus

In Taurus, Mercury produces a mind that is patient and practical. Your thinking is often conservative, and your thought processes are fixed and stable. You are more apt to learn from experiences than from formal training. Your powers of concentration are outstanding. Thinking and decision-making is based upon that which is practical, material and surrounded by common sense. Many will consider you a "slow-poke" when it comes to mental matters and communicating ideas. You are slow to form opinions because you put much thought into questions before you render an answer, and you don't like to be rushed in this.

You may excel in handling financial matters, for you are very dependable in managing money. You have a shrewd business mind and a natural inclination toward management of resources.

Often this position marks a degree of mental stubbornness and steadfastness. Once you have made up your mind, you do not like to change it or hear differing arguments and ideas. In extreme cases, you may ignore obvious conclusions that differ from your initial decision. Guard against a tendency toward intellectual obstinacy and the highly opinionated views that sometimes plague Mercury in Taurus people.

.

Mercury in Gemini

Gemini is the natural home for Mercury, and the placement produces pure logical reasoning of the highest order. This Mercury denotes a lightning quick thinker. Your concern is with fact and unbiased understanding, rather than personal preference. Communication is easy, rapid, accurate and often eloquent. You are an interesting and incessant conversationalist. Mercury is at its quickest and best when it resides in Gemini.

If given proper training, you excel in mathematics as well as in language. You are very logical, and your mind moves very quickly. You love logic, a fact making you an excellent teacher or reporter.

When engaged in arguments, you may miss a basic premise, but you are clever enough to win anyway. The opponent is convinced by your rational remarks. You have a great variety of interests, and your mind may flit from one idea to the next, never digging in very deeply. You have an intense curiosity leading you to want to know a little about nearly everything. This makes you a very interesting person, but rarely an expert in any particular field.

The down side of Mercury in Gemini is the sensitive nervous system often noted. It's hard for you to shut out external stimulation of any sort. You may find yourself being forced to deal with too much activity and too many impressions from time to time. If you allow yourself to be subjected to too much stress and too many demands for an extended period, you can become frazzled and subject to breakdown. The obvious signs of this problem are irritability and mental confusion. The root cause of this is simply spreading yourself too thin. Getting away from it all generally provides a quick cure.

.

Mercury in Cancer

In Cancer, Mercury produces a mind that is very intuitive. You are influenced more by an appeal to the senses, than by logic or common sense.

In Gemini, Mars produces mental assertiveness and mental energies are highest here. As wonderful as this seems, on the practical side, you may be somewhat lacking, and emotionally, this placement is prone to big swings and is best defined as erratic.

You have an active and critical mind that may be inclined toward going off in many directions at once. You love to debate and engage in all types of intellectual contests. A satirical wit is often a hallmark of this Mars in Gemini. Frequently, this placement attracts persons to careers as reporters, journalists and critics. Periodic job changes or handling a variety of jobs simultaneously, are not uncommon with this placement since there is much restlessness in your nature. Since so much energy is channeled into mental and verbal activity, you are apt to be quite a talker. You may make use of this strength by becoming a teacher, a lecturer, or a related field that takes advantage of your ability to express yourself. You pride yourself on your intelligence and verbal dexterity. To you, a person's worth is based on their intelligence, and you want to be respected as a formidable thinker.

Several of your romantic relationships may be superficial. You eagerly pursue new experiences in romance, but it may be difficult for you to remain constant to any one special partner. You're apt to be an incurable flirt. Your mind, however, is your most active erogenous zone.

Mars in Gemini is high-strung and produces much nervous energy, but it is lacking in physical vitality or endurance. There is a tendency for you to burn yourself out through stress and mental strain. You may need to force yourself to get more exercise as a way of balancing the physical with the mental.

You take responsibility seriously, often too seriously.

.

Your way is sometimes way out of the ordinary. At the same time, your energies are apt to produce more thought than action. You are the rebellious type, and you can become very impatient.

.

Mars in Pisces

In Pisces, Mars produces emotions that are unpredictable and often intense. Emotional energy is high, sometimes too high. Mentally, Mars in Pisces does well, but on the physical and practical side, this placement often comes up short.

The strength of Mars in Pisces is found in the arts. You may find yourself very much attracted to music and the arts. You may relate to many of the world's fine artists who need the isolation and introspection so much a part of this placement. You have a natural sensitivity to color, tone and rhythm that may be of benefit to you in artistic endeavors.

In this sign, Mars responds in a confused manner. Assertive action is drowned in this sign that is so receptive, emotional, sensitive, and even psychic. The result of the placement is often a quiet exterior, but with much restlessness inside. Physical strength is rare with this position. Resentment runs high. Excessive emotions are a constant problem and a good deal of solitude is frequently necessary to sort matters out. Mars in Pisces has trouble asserting itself, and it is likely that you are somewhat shy and withdrawn.

Action is expressed in "behind the scenes" roles where you can work with subtlety, and your naturally intuitive sensitivity. Much of your attitude stems from your keen sensitivity to the feelings of others. You clearly know what the other person is feeling, and therefore you are always ready to render assistance to those who are most in need. You are apt to express the energies of Mars most actively in support of the defenseless or the underprivileged. In this regard, Mars in Pisces is often found in fields such as psychology and medicine.

Mars in Pisces is not a highly sexed sign. Certainly, you are romantic, but in order for you to be satisfied, the greater need is emotional rather than physical. You're very idealistic about love and relationships. In many ways, you view of sexual matters is more like a fantasy with such high expectations that it is rarely achieved in real life.

Saturn in the Twelve Signssaturn

Astrology signs - Saturn

Saturn is associated with restrictions and obstacles. These frustrating or inhibiting aspects of life are expressed through the sign that Saturn occupies in your chart. Since the planet remains in each sign for two and a half years, these are traits you may share with most of your contemporaries. The traits described become more pronounced when Capricorn is on the Ascendant or when Saturn is in the first house of the chart.

The Outer Planets; Uranus, Neptune and Pluto

Astrology signs - transsaturn

The outer planets, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto don't tell as much about individual personalities as they do about the "mini-generation" of people all born under the same Uranus sign. For this reason, I have not focused on the sign placement of these planet in considering natal personalities and traits.

The Planet URANUS uranus

Uranus transits the zodiac in 84 years, spending about seven years in each of the twelve signs. The characteristics of each of the outer planets are social rather personal, and you are linked to those contemporaries born in the same Uranus time span. Its influences appears in the way that the group born during a period display their rebellious spirit, desire for freedom, and need to effect change as they grow older. Here is how the various sign placements of Uranus may view change.

Uranus in Aries

Many of your peers born during the years when Uranus was in Aries will want to assert their independence, and will likely work to prompt changes in society. This group will often be impetuous, and members will display impatience in seeking freedom at any price.

Uranus in Taurus
