Natal Mercury in Aries

Natal Mercury in Aries

When a person has his natal Mercury in Aries, the sign will grant a big part of its attributes to everything that Mercury represents in his chart. As Mercury is generally governing our intellect and communication, Aries energy will make the native’s expression quite fiery and dynamic. Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and has the planet Mars as its ruling celestial body. Aries is also the natural ruler of the first house, which rules our ego. This will make Aries Mercury people promote their ego through their speech, and sometimes even force themselves and their ideas on others. The hot temperaments of Mars make the mind function quickly or even hastily. A person with their Mercury in Aries tends to speak before thinking, and does not like…

Natal Moon in Pisces

Natal Moon in Pisces

When a person has his natal Moon in Pisces, the sign will grant a big part of its attributes to everything that the Moon represents in his chart. This is a rather potent placement because the Moon rules water and all that is liquid, and Pisces together with Cancer are considered to be the moistest signs. Of course, this can be a double-edged knife, as Pisces is the most sensitive and emotional sign, and the Moon’s placement makes the native’s emotions be even more fragile, intense and changeable. When located in Pisces, the Moon is rather difficult to control. Traditionally considered the most passive sign, Pisces bear a lot of feminine energy. Combined with the role of the Moon, the Grand Female archetype, the emotional patterns of the native will…

Natal Moon in Sagittarius

Natal Moon in Sagittarius

When a person has his natal Moon in Sagittarius, the sign will grant a big part of its attributes to everything that the Moon represents in his chart. As the Moon is generally governing our emotional parts, Sagittarian energy will grant an adventurous and happy scent to the native’s emotions, making it a rather pleasant placement to have natally. Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac and has the grand benefic, Jupiter, as its ruling planet. Sagittarius is a mutable sign, easily adapting to new surroundings and with a constant inner urge to expand. This makes the Moon function in a rather volatile and adventurous way. The heart needs to expand and break even geographical or cultural borders. A person with such a placement will usually be attracted to…

Natal Moon in Capricorn

Natal Moon in Capricorn

When a person has his natal Moon in Capricorn, it is considered in detriment as it is in the sign opposite to Cancer, the one that the Moon naturally rules. This is a rather tough placement for the Moon in a natal chart, as its potency reaches its lowest level. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, the planet of contraction, and thus the emotional responses of such an individual are quite colder compared to all the other Moon signs. A Capricorn Moon person will be rather serious, preferring emotional stability – yet not allowing his feelings to flow freely even when they are strong. When located in Capricorn, the Moon is deprived of its moistness and feels rather pressured. Traditionally connected with the earth and especially rocks and mountains, Capricorn archetypically…

Natal Moon in Aquarius

Natal Moon in Aquarius

When a person has his natal Moon in Aquarius, the sign will grant a big part of its attributes to everything that the Moon represents in his chart. As the Moon is generally governing our emotional parts, Aquarius energy will make the native’s emotions quite changeable, and their patterns unpredictable. On the other hand, Aquarius will grant to emotions a very altruistic approach, and will prompt the native to radiate them towards groups rather than individuals. Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and has the planet Uranus as its ruling celestial body. Before the discovery of Uranus (which was first named Herschel), the planet Saturn was considered to be the ruler of Aquarius. Still, many astrologers use Saturn as the co-ruler of the sign. Aquarius is a fixed…

Halloween and Astrology The Via Combusta

Halloween and Astrology: The Via Combusta

Have you ever been curious about why various cultures connect the last days of October and the beginning of November with celebrating the dead? In America, we have Halloween, in Latin countries the Dias des Muertos, in Celtic and neo-pagan culture the Samhain and many similar celebrations. Can these feasts be explained from an astrological point of view? The answer is probably yes, and the magic words are Via Combusta. Astrology is a not just the observation of the planetary movements; it is a system developed through the collective unconscious of the human race. In fact, both astrology and the collective unconscious developed together, significantly interconnected. The need of naming the unknown in order to de-demonize it made the people choose primitive archetypes that exist in the depths of their…
