Astrological analyses could lead us to great discoveries about who we really are. This is perhaps the question that troubles all of us; some of us more, others less. Nevertheless, it is in the core of the humankind to ask such questions.
Since very old and ancient times, we have been tried to answer such questions. They are still unanswered, but we never lose hope.
Astrology is one of the oldest civilized ways of looking into our destiny. It is very old; Western astrology originates from times as old as thousands of years BC.
Although modern world does not take it ‘seriously’, meaning it is called a pseudo science and not a ‘real’ one, astrology should be respected. It has a long history of use and it is still practiced worldwide.
Astrology is a complex (pseudo) science, consisting of different branches. We are mostly interested in natal astrology and personalized horoscopes. However, astrological analyses could be applied to whole countries, even the Earth as it is.
Most of people would like to know what the stars have in store for them and their closest ones.
That said, we come to birth charts. Birth charts are basic for personalized horoscopes. They are graphic schemes, representing the sky, at the time one person was born. You only need to provide your astrologer with your date, time and place of birth. In this digitalized era, you can easily get one by an online calculator.
However, it takes deeper analysis, if you want to see what your birth chart is really about. There are many elements and specific features that make one birth chart unique. At the end of the day, the true realization of your star-written destiny is upon you.
You should learn what your potentials and possibilities are, as based on your birth chart, and take the best of it in your reality.
These potentials are seen in various aspects and in all relations of elements in one’s birth chart. The most important ones are planets.
The places they stand in your birth chart give you specific characteristics; some of those are deeply personal, others describe your relations with the world around you, some tell about your fortune, of opportunities and else.
Personal Planets – The Luminaries
Personal planets are responsible for who you are as a person, in astrological terms, as reflected on your real life. Personal planets are the Sun, the Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars. Now, the Sun and the Moon are not technically and astronomically planets, but astrology counts them as ones.
In old days, there were only planets that could be seen with the naked eye, enlisted as heavenly bodies of importance for astrological interpretations.
This means all planets of the Solar system, to Saturn, including Saturn. The Luminaries, the brightest of these heavenly bodies, are the Sun and the Moon. Being bright and ever present, always easily visible, these twp have always been considered the most important and the most personal ones, in a way.
Personal planets change zodiac signs often, since their cosmic travels are faster, in comparison with others.
This means they spend less time in one place and so they have more individual impact than other planets. For example, Neptune spends more than a decade in one zodiac sign, so it affects people more globally; it affects whole generations.
Planets such as Jupiter and Saturn are so called ‘social planets’, because they are also associated with one’s position in wider society and affect generations of people.
Personal planets affect an individual. The place they occupy in your natal chart gives you unique personality traits and else. The Sun and the Moon are determining. The Sun is your active nature, your goal, your ruling sings; it is a definition of your visible person, to say so.
The Moon is everything needed for that person to become; it represents your inner voice, sub-consciousness, emotions.
Luminaries are very important if you want to get to know yourself better and you ask an expert to have your birth chart done. By analyzing positions of the Sun and the Moon in a natal chart, one could tell more about you as a person. This could help you discover your hidden potentials, skills and talents.
It could help you better to understand your behavior and actions, your thoughts and emotions.
Moon and Horoscope
Now, let us turn to one of the Luminaries in particular, the Moon. Moon is associated with the element of Water, its nature is feminine, cold and wet and it rules over the one of the most mysterious zodiac sign, the Cancer. The place of Moon’s exaltation is in Taurus and this is going to be the story about Moon in Taurus.
Let us first learn more about the Moon itself and its role in a horoscope.
The better the Moon is positioned in a birth chart, the happier the life is. Moon stands for your inner voice, for intuition, imagination, sub-consciousness, communication and general ability of connecting with people.
The Moon is complementary with the Sun; we could say they represent two sides, dependant of one another. Both are important.
In comparison with the Sun that reflects your fixed nature, symbolizes stability and essence, the core of your being, the Moon is ever-changeable, turbulent and closely related to one’s emotional nature. This is why people with strong Moon, such as Cancer people, are deeply emotional and sensitive, but also moody and melancholic at times.
The best scenario is to have the Sun and the Moon in a natal chart matching; this means you have almost perfect balance between your reason and your emotions.
If the Sun and the Moon match one another, meaning they are in the same place, one maintains good balance between seen and unseen, conscious and sub-conscious, needs and desires, reality and imagination. If aspects are disharmonious, there is a great risk of complete imbalance between these.
However, the most probable scenario is usually something in between.
To understand the position of the Moon in one’s natal chart is of vital importance in creating a horoscope. It determines the way we react at people and events that happen around us. This knowledge help us understand what are flaws are, what we lack and what is it that we should work on, in order to go through life more smoothly.
To understand the astrological Moon’s influence, leads to more balanced and quality life.
