With the Moon in Aquarius, the native is generous, broadminded, attractive to
members of the opposite sex, and popular in general, but he often lacks the strength
to be practical enough to fulfill his hopes and wishes. He loves applause and praise,
but secretly doubts that he is really as capable as others might imagine him to be. He
needs to be determined, but should avoid being stubborn. He must learn to accept
criticism and not constantly seek the company of those who flatter him.
The native is interested in social mores; he wants to improve world conditions, but
often neglects his own neighborhood or family.
There are numerous contradictions in his nature. He recognizes these, and they
cause him more than a little concern. The road to Hell, as they say, is paved with
good intentions. Perhaps this very well fits the Moon in Aquarius. No doubt he wants
to do good. But in trying, he steps on toes, and is often harsh in his efforts to get in a
position where his influence will be felt. He needs to feel he is helping others - and in
trying to do so often convinces people that they are not really as happy as they think.
He is attracted to 'far out' subjects, including astrology, magnetism, dream
interpretation, psychology, sociology, social theories, hypnotism, television, space
flights, etc.. He is given to fantasy, fascinated by science fiction (even though he may
profess to be 'above it all'). He is very sensitive - and if the Moon is in poor aspect to
the Sun, may have an eye defect.
He is considered unconventional - and he is proud of it! His public image is that of a
humanitarian who often makes himself appear ridiculous by going the long way
The astrologer's task is to make him realize that his first duty is to make himself
happy. He must help himself before he can really earn the respect of others.
The Moon in Aquarius indicates that a powerful social awareness influences you, and
that many of your personal needs will be connected to social groups or organizations.
Involvement with socially active groups will attract, although these may be more
modern, radical pressure groups rather than established social organizations,
because of your rebellious natures. The idealistic vision and values of such groups
are especially appealing to you, both intellectually and emotionally; and as Aquarius
is the sign of group consciousness, you will, at least mentally, align yourself with
such progressive groups. Yet as you perceive yourself to be highly individual, actually
working within groups may not be so suitable, since you are determined to pursue an
iconoclastic approach. You can enjoy the freedom of remaining on the fringes as anobserver rather than becoming involved in real participation.
Socially, you like to build a wide network of friends and acquaintances in which there
is a breadth of various relationships based on a commonality of social and creative
interests. You enjoy variety and constant mental stimulation; and your home life is
often turned into a meeting place for like-minded individuals. The revolution may
occur only in your mind, but you do like to reflect the changing world and to express
the new perceptions, if only to see the effect they have on people. Yet you may
become dedicated to a cause or belief; and your attitudes are genuinely held, even if
the eventual application may sometimes be lacking.
Relating to humanity as an impersonal whole is easier for you than relating on a oneto-one basis, especially in intimate contacts. Emotions are not particularly wellintegrated; and sometimes your social whirl serves as an excuse to evade fears of
emotional closeness. You intellectualize emotions rather than directly experiencing
their power and intensity; feelings are diverted into a mental examination, otherwise
you may feel threatened by their wildness. By demanding emotional freedom in
relationships, you are just trying to keep emotions at a distance. This can manifest in
fears of commitment, even though you may actually need that commitment for
The Moon is not at ease in Aquarius, where the combined energies may confine and
conflict. Lunar emotions, instincts, and feelings try to break free of Aquarian
impersonality and mental focus, searching for greater emotional closenses and
seeking to fulfill often unacknowledged needs. Aquarian energies may stimulate
sudden, radical life-style changes as an escape from family responsibilities or
Moon and Aquarius may be brought into deeper harmony if you begin to honor
emotional and instinctual needs. Your sympathy with the needs of humanity is
genuine, engaging a heartfelt response; but these feelings also need to be liberated
throughout your life. Releasing your potential also means working with your whole
nature, recognizing emotions and feelings as a vital part of your individuality; cutting
them off makes as much sense as chopping off a leg. Let your natural emotions flow
more easily. Follow their messages, instead of just paying attention to your intellect,
logic, or philosophical belief systems. Otherwise you pollute and damage the
ecological system of your being; and like all stagnant water, it will grow poisoned and
foetid, distroting your advanced social perceptions and destroying your own
Allowing emotional vitality to flow will also awaken intuitive perception and release
your natural inventiveness; this may enable you to make a greater social contribution
and vitalize inner realms through improving the quality of your intimate
Emotionally, you can be quite unpredictable, excitable, even explosive. Given to
temper tantrums and sudden outbursts, you express your feelings with uncensored
candor. You are most upset by social injustices and inequities, and might be more
passionate about causes than people. Although your anger is easily aroused, it
doesn't last long; once you've vented it, you see no reason to hold a grudge, and may
behave as if nothing had happened. You can't understand why others might be hurt
by your harsh words.
In truth, you enjoy a good confrontation now and again, and don't really want thingsto go too smoothly. Tense and high-strung, you like to keep the emotional pot boiling
and don't want your home life or relationships to become routine or predictable. For
you, boredom is the deathblow to a relationship. If you are involved with someone
who has Moon in Aries or Aquarius, you might fight a lot but still get along famously.
However, you are likely to trample or bully people whose Moons are in more gentle
or emotional signs. Stubborn, brusque and willful, you can be insensitive to the
feelings of others.
Though your emotions are easily engaged and displayed with great force, they aren't
very deep. With those who love you, you sometimes seem detached and aloof, and it's
difficult to be truly intimate with you. Intimacy and emotional closeness smack of
possessiveness to you. You demand freedom to come and go as you please, and to
associate with whomever you choose; and anyone who doesn't like it isn't worth your
Although you may change lovers frequently or have severl simultaneously, you are
intensely loyal to your friends. Friendship, in fact, is far more important to you than
romantic live; and you probably have many friends and associates. Casual
companions and relationships that don't make too many demands on your emotions
are more comfortable for you. Above all, you expect honesty, equality amd fairness in
all your relationships.
Your childhood home was probably chaotic, constantly changing and / or unstable in
some way. Perhaps you moved frequently. Your parents may have fought a great
deal, or split up when you were still young. Most probably, there was something
unusual about your upbringing and / or your parents.
Your mother (or nurturing parent) might have been avant-garde, unconventional, or
in some way different from her contemporaries. Though she probably encouraged
you to develop your intellect and become independent as soon as possible, she wasn't
very nurturing or supportive of you. Possibly she found parenting too restrictive, and
resented being tied down with children when there were so many other exciting
things to do. She may not have been there when you needed her, and had trouble
showing affection, sympathy and compassion.
You want to be a friend to your own children rather than an authority figure. When
they are very young, you can be quite impatient with them. You don't like their
dependency, and want them to hurry and grow up so they won't make so many
demands on you and you can have more freedom. As a result, you may 'push them out
of the nest' too soon. Unless you have several planets in Taurus, Leo, Cancer or
Pisces, you aren't very affectionate with them and prefer reading them bedtime
stories to rocking them to sleep. Unless Capricorn or Scorpio is prominent in your
chart, you probably aren't much of a disciplinarian and your kids might be a bit
rebellious and wild.
Because of your deep concern for humankind, you might want to initiate programs to
protect and feed the world's homeless orphans and take care of all who are in need.
Even if you have no biological children, you may feel as though you are 'mother' to
Your physical home isn't very important to you (unless you have Cancer or Taurus
prominent in your chart). You may change residences frequently or have an
unconventional living arrangement, such as sharing a home with an odd assortment
of other people. Some might describe your lifestyle as 'bohemian'. At the very least,
your house is probably decorated in an eclectic, ultra-modern or off-beat fashion; and
housekeeping isn't your most obvious talent.Both men and women with this Moon placement revel in being 'different' and will go
out of their way to shock the more conventional members of their families. Men with
Moon in Aquarius enjoy women who are strong-willed, independent, unusual and
intelligent. Women are not particularly maternal and usually aren't happy in
traditional roles or relationships that aren't 'equal'.
(Marion D. March and Joan McEvers)
You consider experience a proving ground for yourself. You react to everything on a
utilitarian and, at the same time, idealistic level. Release is very necessary for you, as
you tend to overload yourself emotionally. You need a cause or project to release
tension, or you become frustrated. This can lead to restless wandering and search or
to spiritual enlightenment.
Your sense impressions are quick, and your mind and emotions react together; thus
you have mental clarity and involvement. Your blending of religious, humanitarian,
sexual and scientific instincts is good.
You have a universal quality and are ahead of your itme. You are a charming friend
and companion and an interesting conversationalist. Women with the Moon in
Aquarius can become too eccentric and experimental, and both sexes must avoid
being too impersonal or detached. A man with the Moon in Aquarius seeks a rather
liberated mate, especially in sexual matters.
You may be inclined toward politics or education or unusual subjects such as
astrology and the occult. You are likely to show originality, ingenuity, inventiveness
and scientific ability. Your imagination is fertile, and you have a lot of creative
energy; if you are not careful, your abundance of emotional energy can cause your
nervous system to suffer. You are a born mixer and joiner, especially for a cause.
You prefer the unconventional, and you value your personal independence. You are
idealistic and broad-minded; but behind your friendly, outgoing manner you hide a
good bit of selfishness. You must consciously control erratic behavior, aloofness and
unpredictability. Your early training in ethics and moral standards will bring good
This placement of the Moon overemphasizes friendliness, humanitarianism and
kindliness. Your need for emotional independence can lead to loneliness and difficulty
with emotional relationships; you may brush these off with seeming indifference.
Your feeling nature can be cold because you do not understand the emotional needs
of someone else. You act warm and friendly but not especially intimate, suggestive or
You see your mother as a friend and companion. She raised you to stand on your own
feet; she is a humanitarian and is not a run-of-the-mill mother in her general
The power of the Moon is rather muted in this sign, the greatest effect being to
reduce the feeling element from the emotions. Inwardly you are detached,
independent and rather cool. Although controlled and possibly a little bottled up at
times, you like others around you to show that they need and want you. When
meeting people for the first time socially, you are pleasant and affable if a little shy;
meanwhile, you are weighing them up in a slightly watchful manner. You have a
strong inner sense of self which would lead you to take a calculated risk in a career
or even in a relationship. Although sensible, you are not over-cautious; therefore, youwould accept most of life's challenges whether they put your finances or your feelings
at risk. This ability to inwardly weigh and measure could be confusing to those who
fall in love with you because, although you can discuss feelings in an articulate
manner, one wonders just how much you are actually able to feel yourself!
Your inner nature is off-beat. You could find yourself travelling in a different direction
from everyone else. Like your solar Aquarian cousins, you are educationally-minded
and will choose a career where you can stretch your mind and also broaden the
minds of others. You are kind, helpful and humanitarian, but this may be directed
more towards the world in general than to those who are closest to you. Although you
are helpful in practical ways, there could be an element of embarrassment and
helplessness when you are faced by the sight of other people's emotional pain. You
are afraid that if you allow weak people to latch themselves on to you they will drain
your energies or, worse still, bore the daylights out of you! Your general outlook is
balanced, optimistic and cheerful. To all except the most neurotic you would be a
Your mind is excellent, and it doesn't matter whether you are educated and academic
or shrewd and streetwuse: either way, your thinking processes are fast, and your
intuition is strong. You possess a dry and intelligent sense of humour. Your ideas are
often excellent, and you have the ability to put them into practice.
Being strongly independent, you prefer to cope alone with your own problems,
however harrowing they may be. One Moon in Aquarius friend of mine wouldn't allow
anyone to go with him when he went into hospital for a major heart operation. You
could reject outside hellp in case accepting it makes you appear weak and incapable.
You mayeven view help as a form of interference. You're not at all keen on people
who try to own you or to manipulate you, although you can be adept at manipulating
others. Another pet dislike is of being falsely accused - you are willing to admit to
your own errors, but will not carry the can for others. Your attitudes can sometimes
cause others to stay at a distance from you, which can consequently cause
misunderstandings both at work and at home.
Your friendliness is universal, and you would not reject anyone due to colour, age,
race or religion. Many lunar Aquariuans belong to clubs and societies of one kind or
another. You enjoy committing yourself to group activities. Most of your hobbies
involve people and ideas which are sociable and charitable, such as youth work.
There is one hobby which many of you enjoy entirely alone, although the results of
this involve other people, and that is cooking. I have met some truly inspired solar
and lunar Aquarian amateur chefs.
You can take any amount of chaos going on around you at work, but you need peace
in your home, where you can be in control of your own environment (creating a little
bit of chaos for others maybe). You enjoy visitors but don't appreciate people who
dump themselves upon you. Many of you are clever handymen (and women), enjoying
the challenge of working on your home and garden, and often finding imaginative and
original ways of solving practical do-it-yourself problems.
Your memory is also rather original, and may be strangely selective, easily recalling
things you find interesting but 'tuning out' from irrelevant details. However, you
don't duck really important issues, as you have high standards of honesty and
integrity. You don't as a rule go in for petty jealousies, and nor do you make
mountains out of molehills. If your pride is hurt, you can be quite spiteful and very
sarcastic. You really do need a cretive or useful outlet, or you can become bored,
gossip or aloof.
Some of you are lazy and oto easygoing, especially if there are planets in the sign ofLibra on your birthchart; yet others can be truly very eccentric, especially if there are
other planets in the sign of Aquarius. For the most part, criticism brushes off you.
You have a strong ego, and you feel that everyone is entitled to his or her own
opinion, even opinions of you. You are not likely to change your ways in the face of
In close personal relationships, you are kind, pleasant, thoughtful and passionate; you
could even be rather romantic. Aquarius being a fixed sign suggests that you don't
easily walk away from situations. You may stay in the same house, the same job or
the same relationship long after the time when you should move on. However, if the
day comes when you do move on, you seem to be able to do so in a decisive manner,
looking mentally forward rather than backward. If necessary, you can wait years for
the right person to come along. If this paragon does not appear, you spend years of
your life alone. If you become bored with your permanent partner, you may look
outside the relationship for change and excitement. If you fall in love with someone
while you are still married, and especially if you have children, then you will be
terribly torn between the need to be loyal and the need to be with the one you want.
However, your famous Aquarian detachment may come to your aid here and allow
you to work out logically what would be for the best. There is no doubt that you need
an interesting and stimulating partner. Another very important ingredient would be
shared interests and mutual respect. Without shared interests, you would gravitate
towards interests of your own, and this would begin the process of allowing the
marriage to drift into failure and loss. There is just a suspicion that lunar Aquarian
males might find a very successful career-girl type of wife too much of a good thing.
There could be just a tinge of jealousy creeping in here. You can be strangely blind to
both the needs and the feelings of those you love. You may never really get to know
them on a deep level.
Women of this lunation must have some kind of interesting work outside the home.
Neither sex seems keen to have a large family, but the relationship between lunar
Aquarian parents and their children is usually very good. There is a natural
sensitivity to the needs of children and young people, and you would offer help
without making undue demands upon your children or smothering them. It is just
possible that you could expect too much of a very timid child, but for the most part
you make a successful parent. You are always ready to stump up cash for education
or hobbies, but you might be a little absent-minded about some of the practical
details, such as making sure that they have a clean shirt for school.
Both sexes with this Moon sign are attractive rather than beautiful. In fact, your
features are more likely to be rugged and bony than soft and sweet. None of this
matters much because your friendliness, charm, sex-appeal and humour are far more
effective with the opposite sex than any amount of sterile beauty would be. Being
rather shy, you might have a little difficulty in breaking the ice; but your interest in
people soon helps you to overcome this. Anyway, you always have the option of
meeting people through mutual interests such as your work or social activities rather
than, for instance, at a disco. People with fixed Moon signs can cope with a lot. It
would take a great deal for you to break up a relationship; but when you do, there
isn't a backward glance. In relationships, as in all things, you need freedom and
independence, and may demonstrate this by being deliberately forgetful, erratic and
hard to pin down with regard to mutual arrangements. You seek an intelligent and
independent partner, and often are happiest with one who is much younger than
yourself, so that to some extent you can advise or mould him / her. Be careful that
when your good advice is taken and your pupil begins to blossom you don't then
become resentful. If your partner started laying the law down to you and restricting
your movements, your first impulse would be to get out of the relationship.Sex for you is a by-product of love. You can indulge in sex for its own sake, but are
much happier when love is the main motivating force. This may surprise many
readers, but this lunation produces amazingly sexy people! Your special combination
of action, imagination and stamina seems to bring something special to the act of
love. Friends who are married to lunar Aquarians have told me... well, let's draw a
veil over that! It's strange how the supposedly non-tactile air sign people seem to
become so good at touching and cuddling when there's the chance of a bit of sexual
Your temper can be a problem when you are young; but later you learn to sit back
and control it. However, if hurt, you retain the ability to wound verbally. There may
be a lack of adaptability in your attitude to others. You will only go as far in order to
fit in with their wishes. You are inclined to consider that other people ought to take
or leave you just as you are. Your partners are chosen to some extent because they
have the right appearance. Fatness turns you right off, as does dirt and mess. A lively
person who has many outside interests would attract you; if he / she has a sense of
humour and also looks nice, better still. Lunar Aquarians of both sexes prefer an
equal partnership, and will do all they can to promote the interests and job of the
other, even trying to help the partner to enjoy his or her hobbies. There is evidence
that you wouldn't be so happy if the hobby was particularly noisy one, because you
hate loud, discordant noises.
Needing a pleasant home and a nice garden, you have no special preference for the
town or the country. I think you would make the best of it wherever you were, as long
as you are not isolated from people or fenced into a very small space.
You take work seriously, and don't like chopping and changing jobs, preffering to find
a career into which you can settle. You are interested in ideas and willing to learn;
therefore, you do well at school and continue to learn later on. Certainly your parents
encouraged you to progress; but like all lunar masculine signs you are inwardly quite
goal-orientated. You enjoy work which is useful to the community, and you also like
making things which are needed. You can pursue a goal persistently; therefore, you
can close a deal if someone else will open the door for you.
Working with children might appeal to you, either directly in education, or in
something tough such as the probation service, because you have patience even for
the awkward ones. You take well to challenges, and can ride out most problems
without falling apart; therefore, the armed forces or police may appeal. Your incisive
mind may lead you into the legal sphere, medicine, psychiatry or even astrology.
Being impatient with fools, you could find delegating difficult. You usually learn from
your own mistakes, and are fairly forgiving towards others for theirs, as long as the
mistakes do not occur too frequently and are not too obviously stupid. You solve
problems in an original way, but must learn to keep lists and use your memory rather
than your forgettery.
You seem to be happiest when working in large enterprises; you may wind up in the
civil service, a large commercial firm, the teaching profession or the government. You
have, in common with the other fixed signs of Scorpio, Leo, and Taurus, the
determination to finish what you start. You don't like being pressurized by others,
preferring to work things out in your own way and to do things slowly and
thoroughly. Some of you enjoy being attached to some kind of glamorous or powerful
enterprise where your own dynamism can come to the fore. There is a reverse side to
this coin, in that you can run a small enterprise on your own as long as you have total
control. Although ambitious while young, you are prepared to settle for something
comfortable later in life.You are clever with electronics, computers, radar and other modernistic ideas, and
may even dream of being a spaceman. You are capable and inventive, and will give
the whole of your attention to the task in hand; therefore, you can create some highly
original and very workable methods of production.
Most solar and lunar Aquarians have a need to do something worthwhile, to put
something back into life. One lunar Aquarian friend of mine raises money for
handicapped children. He does this very quietly despite being one of the most
prominent members of this country's civil service. Another is in the scouting
movement. There is an inner desire to bring a sense of love to all people.
One occasionally runs across the type of Moon in Aquarius subject who is languid and
arty, unambitious and lacking in self-discipline. There are a few others who may be
theorizers, never quite able to put their theories into action, and too eccentric to fulfil
any ordinary kind of role. Most of you, however, enjoy a challenge and wil get a kick
from making something succeed. Some of you are drawn to the arts or the world of
drama; and, if there are other encouraging factors on your birthchart, writing may
come naturally to you.
On the face of it, you have a good childhood. Certainly your practical needs were
attended to. If you came from a background where there was little money to spare,
your parents would have made sure that you had enough to eat and were dressed and
equipped in a clean and decent manner.
Your mother may have been a busy career woman or may have poured her energies
into some personal interest. One lunar Aquarian friend of mine had parents who were
actively involved in the Salvation Army. Some of you will have had the kind of mother
who did very little outside the home, the results of which had the reverse effect of
making you feel that families are definitely better off when the mother has outside
interests. Another Moon in Aquarius peculiarity is that you may have had religion
rammed down your throat in childhood, which put you completely off the idea of
formal religion later in life.
It is possible that you loved your father but inwardly considered him to be weak. He
may have had poor health. Oddly enough, many Moon in Aquarius subejcts seem to
have fathers who suffered from stomach ulcers. Mother would have been the more
organized and capable parent, especially as far as money is concerned. You probably
come from an average family of two or three children, and woulr have been the older
and / or more capable one of the group or of a different sex from the other children.
You were taught not to make scenes or allow your emotions to become a nuisance to
others. It is possible that you were never really able to feel very close to your
parents. It is even possible that this is a circumstance of your own making. People
who have the Moon in Air signs do tend to be rather emotionally self-contained, and
you may just have been born that way.
Your parents took a reasonable view of your educational needs. They encouraged you
to learn, but didn't push you unduly. They may not have been so accommodating in
respect of any hobbies you wished to pursue, which may have been due to shortage of
money or conflict with their moral or religious views, for instance if the activity
involved participation on the sabbath.
Healthwise, you are basically very strong. Blood-pressure could be a problem,
especially for women during pregnancy. Allergies such as hay fever, asthma, eczema,
psoriasis and hives can occur; also migraine, menstrual problems in women,
rheumatism and diabetes are possibilities. The weakest part of the body is the lower
legs and ankles, which could involve problems with veins, phlebitis and thrombosis;also leg ulcers later in life.
(Julia and Derek Parker)
Those with this placing are magnetically attractive, yet send out signals suggesting
they are cool and distant, and don't want the rest of us to come too close. That is
there immediate reaction, and it is only when we break through this brittle, bright
but somewhat frosty barrier that we actually experience the characteristics of the
Sun; and, eventually, the Ascendant. It is as if, in some ways, the subject is on the
defensive, and wants to appear enigmatic and mysterious.
The flow of emotion is very controlled, although if anyone needs help the subject will
immediately respond and want to do as much as possible, just like his or her Aquarius
Sun sign cousins. The subject's reasons for helping will be severely practical, and he
will at once see a way through any difficulties that may cloud the issue for the person
The unpredictability of Aquarius will be seen when the subject is confronted with any
aspects of life that could be considered controversial. His reaction may be totally
unexpected, and quite different from what was anticipated. Similarly, the subject may
take an unexpected line of action, on the spur of the moment, that is completely out
of character with other areas of his personality. In retrospect, he may well have
problems attempting to justify this to himself.
Anything glamorous will strongly appeal to the subject, who, interestingly, also has a
romantic streak. However, this is detached; and the way the emotions are expressed,
especially in love (as opposed to strong feelings relating to worldly issues) must be
assessed from the positions of Venus and Mars, and theiur strength in the chart as a
Originality and ofte a spark of genius are present. Sudden bright ideas should be
acted upon and carried through to completion. If stubbornness is shown in the
positions and aspects of the other planets, it could become a serious problem, for it
will not blend happily with a tendency to unpredictability. Nervous tension can also
cause problems, the likelihood of which will be affected by the influence of Uranus in
the birth chart.
The humanitarian qualities of Uranus, linked with kindness, will be very evident and
contrinute much that is positive in the subject.
(Frances Sakoian and Louis Acker)
The Moon in the sign Aquarius indicates a capacity to sympathize with the needs of
humanity. Occasionally there are flashes of intuitive knowledge. Persons with this
position are friendly to all, in an impersonal way. They seek freedom of emotional
expression, and demand freedom to come and go as they please within the domestic
situation; thus, they are likely to have unusual family relationships. Their homes are
gathering places for friends and group activities. The negative aspect of this position
can give a tendency to emotional perversity and stubbornness, or an irrational need
for freedom at all costs. There can also be fear of personal emotional involvements
because of the threat they pose to personal freedom.
You have a humanitarian, though potentially detached, soul. You have the need to be
your own person with Other - which at times finds you feeling on your own. You havethe instinct to emotionally experiment - but Other could find you emotionally
disrespectful. Your Mother is seen or expressed as one who is open and friendly, and
/ or remote and unmaternal.
You naturally respond towards Other by initially relating on a friendly, mental level
while maintaining your emotional distance. You respond to Other by using your
natural psychological awareness to give him / her plenty of space to express him- /
herself as he or she likes. You respond to other with great tolerance and intuitive
Your inner child reacts by being unavilable should it detect the slightest sign of being
needed by Other more than your inner child ever felt needed or loved. You can
antagonize other by not really responding at all - just hedging your bets as your mind
plays with unreal ideas and infinite possibilities. You can also antagonize by relating
with your head rather than your heart or gut, thereby giving Other a false impression
of yourself and your intentions.
You are unconsciously drawn towards relationships that first appear to put a
minimum of pressure upon you to deliver emotionally; towards an unusual
relationship set-up that appeals because its uniqueness constantly stimulates you and
Other; and towards any Other who excites you emotionally for reasons you cannot
You can get caught up in relationship with an Other who fails to recognize your true
emotional nature or needs - forcing you to recognize them yourself; in relationships
what are unpredictable and therefore feel insecure, or are boring because they're
safe; and in situations that shock you into cutting out emotionally at critical times...
When you are alone, it is because you have made yourself unavailable - or, more to
the point, too unavailable. This probably harks back to some emotional break or
trauma in childhod, and so you are quite inclined to continue to keep your emotional
distance. But until you hop back into how you are really feeling - rather than how you
think you are supposed to be feeling - you can perennially find yourself cut off from
anyone who might really know you or get to know you. You are disposed to keeping
yourself as an emotional cipher in order to prevent getting intimate enough to jog
your memory back to taht time in your early life when you got emotionally detached.
But your unconscious keeps playing the same old records until you hear what they're
saying, whether you are with someone or all alone. Either way, you have to wake up
to how you truly feel.
(Marcia Moore and Mark Douglas)
Keynote: Original and unusual ideas arise out of the unconscious mind.
Symbol: An intelligent woman conducts a panel discussion on television.
People having the Moon in Aquarius are endowed with the divine gift of imagination.
Their capacity to visualize can cause them to fear the worst, but it also gives wings to
their inventive genius. They understand the implications of the axiom 'Energy follows
thought', and instinctively respect the power of ideas to produce changes in
Many of the lunar Aquarian's most inspired insights come directly from the realm of
the unconscious. As he learns to plumb the depths of his own psyche, he may release
unsuspected creative forces. These images and concepts may take so powerful a grip
upon the mind that the individual begins to feel more like his / her instrument thanhis / her originator.
In the fixed sign Aquarius, the restlessness of the everchanging Moon is stabilized,
and its sympathies are broadened. Human inconsistencies can be viewed in a calmly
detached manner. Although lunar Aquarians themselves usually appear to be sensible
and well-adjusted, they can understand people who are not. Yet they become deeply
involved in the causes they espouse, and will throw caution to the winds when the
necessity arises to voice their opinions. They are original, not because they say what
no-one has ever said before, but because they say exactly what they think.
Occasionally, they appear more radical than they are, simply because people are not
used to such plain speaking.
Since these individuals like to vent unusual ideas, they are often found in professions
such as writing, filmmaking, and public relations, where they can influence people's
moods. Every so often they like to surprise and shock an audience in order to shake
them out of their complacency. They want to jolt others into an awreness of current
happenings even though the process may prove painful.
Lunar Aquarians are as broad-minded as their solar counterparts, and can apply their
scientific impersonality to the study of human problems. Men of this type tend to hold
themselves aloof, and are frequently misunderstood. Women may be too intellectual
and independent to seem completely feminine unless other influences compensate for
the lack of softness in their nature. Both sexes are liable to suffer from physical and
mentla tension if they allow themselves to be overstimulated by the energies which
course through their nervous system.
This combination often engenders an interest in astrology, metaphysics,
parapsychology, occultism, and all manner of arcane subjects. There is a
preoccupation with the strange and unusual, not for the sake of novelty-seeking, but
because of a genuine desire to understand the whys and wherefores of existence. The
Aquarian seldom accepts the limitations others take for granted. His fundamental
faith in man and nature assures him that the human mind is capable of unconvering
the most startling secrets of the universe, and that nothing is too amazing to be real.
The lunar Aquarian seldom craves to be a master over men. He wants to illumine
minds, not to dominate them. He values his liberty too highly to want to interfere
with the liberty of anyone else. The Aquarian Age has already demonstrated that
modern scientific technology can set man free from the drudgery of menial chores
and provide the leisure to explore the widening vistas of outer and inner space. It is
also demonstrating that true democracy is a system which cannot be sustained by
Saturnaian laws alone. Each system must undergo a Uranian transformation of mind
and heart which enables him, through the planetarization of his consciousness, to
envision a society of freely co-operating groups and nations. Only then can the
Aquarian ideal become a reality.
The Moon, in the most intellectual of the three Air signs, skims lightly over the
surface of the water as it blows in a fixed direction. Air and water do not mix as we
consider them astrologically, but the air can cool the water and the water can cool
the air. What are we dealing with here? The house placement becomes most
important, for when this Moon is in a natural Air house it overwhelms the watery
Cancer influence and veers toward a more intellecutal response of the emotional
being. When in a Water house, it loses some of its dry mental quality and becomes
even on the board, a combination of Air and Water, which suggests that the emotions
are sometimes expressed with Aquarian fixity and sometimes with the moreinstinctual Cancer feelings.
Considered in its pure Aquarian state, it is possibly the most unemotional of the
twelve Moon placements. You with the Moon in Aquarius do not ruffle easily,
manipulate others, subtly try to get your own way, or slink off in a corner to sulk
when your feelings are hurt. Frankly, your feelings seldom get hurt, and you couldn't
care less about such behavior. You want to get on with the present project, engage
your friends with helping out with your newest brainchild, and, if there's a difference
of opinion or misunderstanding, you discuss it calmly. You simply do not understand
what all the handwriting, sobbing and pouting is all about. To you, such conduct is a
waste of time.
You Moon-in-Aquarius people need freedom to express your Uranian self. You are
truly the maverick of the zodiac, unhampered by much of the emotional baggage
clinging to other signs. You tackle daily life from a detached but fixed level of
operation. Any mishaps, changes, upheavals are looked upon calmly and taken in
stride. What, for heaven's sake, you are wondering, is all the fuss about?
You depend on this detachment and your ability to observe others from an impartial
viewpoint to make your daily life run smoothly. When some unfortunate occurrence
crashes down on your head, your solution is simply to shrug it off, walk away from
the mess and expect someone else to straighten it out. You're not going to concern
yourself with it. Onto your next project, which is a far more brilliant and exciting
Since your mind rules your emotions, your feelings are often considered somewhat
shallow and superficial. Your reactions are sometimes difficult for your loved ones to
live with. Usually they expect more response from you, a warm, heartfelt interest in
their problems, a deep sympathy for their emotional ups and downs; and usually they
are disappointed. You pat them absently on the shoulder, listen to their wails with a
faraway look in your eyes, and not briskly when they come to the end of their recital.
So what else is new?
If you are a female, you may discover in the course of everyday life filled with a
demanding job or caring for children, placating an insistent husband and shoving the
chicken in the oven, that the ability to remove yourself from the uproar may be
invaluable and, in highly distressing situations, save you from going to pieces. Even
though you may be cool and unemotional with your loved ones, you secretly hanker
after some ardent display of love for yourself. It's just that you can't be gooey over
babies, adore all the kids on the block and greet your husband with a passionate
embrace. You're thinking about something else all the while, like organizing the next
In a mate, you look for one who will appreciate your intellectual qualities, respect
your need for personal freedom, and absorb your more startling Uranian ideas
If you are a male, your Moon in Aquarius will stand you in good stead in the business
world. You can play poker face with the greatest of ease, outstare the next guy and
sit quietly while analyzing each prospective rival down to the threads in his suit.
What's more, they will think you a great chap - easygoing, relaxed, delightful sense of
humor, non-threatening. But wait until they pass out the raises and the changes of
command, and they may not believe you to be so harmless any more.
At home you express your affection to your wife and children by discussing many
subjects, from the demographic composition of the Republican party to thepossibilities of taking a ride in space. You are proud of your children, and allow them
to pursue their interests and find their own way. If your daughter wants to study
electical wiring or your son takes up the study of crocodiles, you encourage them and
find nothing at all unusual in these vocations. It's all fun and very low-key, so low-key
that the young ones won't realize, until they are punished for some infraction of your
fixed Aquarian rules, that you definitely mean what you say. Your mate understands
that you show your affection in unexpected ways; by bringing her a bunch of violets
in February, a load of cinnamon bread from the bakery, or a jug of raspberry wine
from Portugal. She enjoys your stimulating mental companionship. One thing she
knows well - you're never dull.
You, the Moon in Aquarius person, find your emotional security primarily within
yourself. The rest of the world is out there for you to look upon with a bemused
tolerance. You know exactly what you are capable of; and no matter what horrors
might befall, you can deal with them from your emotionally detached level of
perception. You have great respect for yourself and your abilities; and even if the
world doesn't know it, you know it - and that's what's important.
Progressive. Can bring difficult lessons through erratic and ill-considered actions.
Good minds, but erratic and unstable. Much originality of thought if it can get out of
rigid thought patterns. A very cold feeling nature because of not understanding the
other fellow's needs. Aquarius is a mental sign, not emotional at all. Feelings are
cramped and limited, and do not operate freely. A strong selfishness behind a friendly
manner. Often has arthritic conditions in later life due to rigid will and
crystallizations of emotions. In a male chart, attracts a fixed and stable partner that
cannot be pushed but can be coaxed.
You'd like to be a force for social good, and will strive in whatever sphere you move
in to live up to this ideal of yourself. Whatever errors you make are likely to be
forgiven because people know you mean well. They may tire after a while of good
intentions gone wrong; but you'll be given another chance where less whole-souled
mortals are condemned or laughed off. You are a poet of life, rahter than a
philosopher: you feel instinctively the needs of human beings and that they must be
satisfied. You may be a social theoriest, but more probably you are just a social
worker, as a humane avocation and hobby, if not as a profession. In helping others,
you satisfy your deepest inner needs; and thus you don't even care if you are imposed
on. That money has been misused is less important to you than that your heart was in
the right place. In fulfilling this image of yourself as 'friend of all the world', you can
become a great force for good; and in whatever circle you move, you will be sure to
make your influence felt on behalf of a humane understanding of human needs and
human relations. Outside charity itself, your understanding extends to social life, to
make you charming, gracious and lively. To make the world a better and happier
place is your path to satisfying your picture of yourself - and a pleasant path it is, as
anyone who shares it with you knows.
Although your temperament is fairly even, there is potential for unlimited variety in
your responses to a lover, depending on your partner and the location. You do not
simply go along with whatever your parner asks, however. In every situation, you are
truly creative and responsive, an equal partner in the emotional and sexual
inventiveness of the relationship.You prefer a partner who provides a challenge rather than one who presents a readymade framework for an affair. If all the shots are predetermined, you feel too
cramped. You will be happier if you can work out the problems together and come up
with the specific sexual style that best suits your personalities. In a way, you are a
role-player who creates the roles instead of trying to fit into those created by society
or by other people.
A lover who is verbally clever would be ideal for you. If the two of you can analyze
your affair in some detail, you will understand it and enjoy it more. Much of you
sexual response is filtered through your mind, and if you're in the dark about what's
happening you won't be up to par sexually.
You will be happiest in a relationship that has plenty of time to develop. In affairs of
the heart, time is on your side.
You value your freedom very highly, and demand the right to do whatever you want
at all times. When others try to force you to take a certain path, you can be extremely
stubborn. You want to be free to try out any new idea or way of doing things that you
come across. You are fond of experimenting with your life, but on your own terms.
You like to be with a group of people, especially your friends, beacuse your own ways
and desires have more meaning if you can share them with others. This doesn't mean
that you are a follower, but that you take the trouble to find people with whom you fit
in. You can be quite an exciting person, and you enjoy being with other people who,
like you, are ready to try anything.
You feel that you can control your own feelings, and you don't like to be around those
who can't. Great displays of emotion bother you. You like to believe that you rely on
your brain to solve problems, rather than on moods, feelings and impulses. This does
not mean that you suppress your feelings, however. Once you get to the point of
feeling at ease with your emotions, you will reveal them quite spontaneously to
others, and you may even get impatient with those who try to hide their feelings.
However, other people's emotions are often much more powerful than your own.
They find it that much harder to control their feelings, and therefore are more
reluctant to display them. You must learn to be tolerant of these and other emotional
differences between yourself and other people.
