Larry and Jane have been together for five years, met in high school and now go to SUNY:Marist College in Upstate New York.
He's a Sagittarius and she's Cancer.
"Wow, how does that work?" I wondered
"Well, I know I had my chart done before and I was told that although I am a Cancer, my ascendant or rising sign is Sagittarius"
"And you?" Pointing to Larry
"My ascendant is Gemini.but my moon is in Cancer"
"That makes sense, then..."
"My moon is in Scorpio"
"so you know him pretty well, eh?"
"She thinks she does...", he exclaimed
"No, I know I know you"
"Ok, whatever..." He mused
"Is this a ritual with you guys?"
"sometimes it is, but it's hard to get him to agree to anything-let alone stick to something for any length of time"
"Is that true, Larry?"
"Whatever...I mean I don't like to get stuck on something-anything for too long. It makes me restless-and she always asks me questions as to why and how I do things"
"so what's wrong with that?"
"it's nagging to me-"
"Nagging?! Nagging?!" she shrieked
Oh?! He shouldn't have said that!
ANYONE with a GEMINI ASCENDANT, whether male or female, will lack in PATIENCE and STAYING STAMINA.
And this can be psychologically, emotionally, or even physically challenging for the Gemini ascendant person (and even more straining to the partner!)
The fact that he feels that she nags him offends her-not so much because she's a Cancer, and therefore, sensitive-BUT MORE SO, because HER ASCENDANT FALLS ON HIS SEVENTH HOUSE OF COOPERATION, CODEPENDENCY, AND PARTNERSHIP.
She looks to HIM for LEADERSHIP and to set the EXAMPLE in the RELATIONSHIP.
And knowing Cancer women, she probably didn't tell him that she holds such expectations of him.
He, on the other hand, having a CANCER MOON, should make him more sensitive-SO YOU'D THINK...
If I had a CANCER MOON I would not have made that insensitive comment-KNOWING it would hurt this type of woman...
"What do yo mean, nagging, Larry?"
"she doesn't let up. She goes on emotion more than logic-and I don't have tolerance for that..."
She shoots him a "glance", then speaks evenly, "...you know that's not what it is..." Her stare was "icy" and "penetrating" (this is the SCORPIO MOON AT WORK!)
Her Scorpio Moon SEXTILES Neptune, the planet of intuition and the paranormal. Neptune aspecting the Moon will REVEAL THAT WHICH IS HIDDEN...
The Moon makes a TRINE ASPECT with her MARS, which gives her the EMOTIONAL COURAGE to say what she has to say without any reservation-even thou she LOOKS innocent and disarming...
Larry's ASCENDANT IN GEMINI OPPOSES HER SAGITTARIUS ASCENDANT!
What does this mean?
It means that Larry, being cerebral (Gemini) will hold to his own METHOD OF THINKING AND REASONING.
His "method" of logic and reasoning will be "rejected" or "opposed" by his girlfriend who will be coming from a DIFFERENT FRAME OF REFERENCE concerning the SAME ISSUE OR ARGUMENT.
SAGITTARIUS rules OPINIONS and DOGMATIC VIEWS.
She will most probably IMPOSE her IDEOLOGY or PROJECT THEM to her boyfriend-AND WILL GET UPSET IF HE DOESN'T SEE HER VIEW AS THE RIGHT OPINION.
This will inevitably cause "CONFLICT"
Back to the question of his CANCER MOON; The reason why he seems so 'disconnected' emotionally from Jane, and seems to have a "mean streak" to his carping comments, is because his MARS SQUARES HER MOON!
His OWN Mars squares his MOON as well...
This is extremely IMPORTANT; To know that his own Moon squares his own Mars. This suggests that he LEARNED THIS TYPE OF EVASIVE AND INSENSITIVE BEHAVIOR FROM HIS OWN PARENTS!
Social Scientists tells us all the time that we learn our own behaviors from our parents-that the spiral of GENERATIONAL PATTERNS are not only MEASURABLE in social science, it can also be DETECTED ASTROLOGICALLY.
His moon squaring his girlfriend's moon is RECAPITULATING THE BEHAVIORAL DYNAMICS OF HIS PARENTS.
In private, I asked specific questions concerning his childhood-and of course, my theory was CONFIRMED...
APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING CAN THEY...?
