misserinkim: Hi! I absolutely love your blog and love reading all your astrological profiles. I was wondering if you had the time to illuminate how a cancer sun, aquarius moon and scorpio ascendant work together? It just seems like such a strange combination! Thank you
Hi misserinkim, thank you so much. :) I’m really happy you enjoy what I post.
Well, I guess by “strange” you mean that the signs the planets are in are kind of paradoxical. I think they are, in theory. But I also think they match together well, because they’re all rather introverted together.
The placements you have told me give you a tendency to believe that the world you inhabit and the world all those around you inhabit is completely different. You’re a natural deep thinker and keen observer. You likely often felt as a child and growing up that you felt out of place, that the things people concerned themselves with seemed meaningless to you, and conversely others viewed you to be in a different world. You simply aren’t interested in things that many hold so important, so you appear out of touch to them. These placements together make it so you live in a world that is entirely private and different than most of those around you. You put on what face you need to get through the day with a cool and calm exterior, you can socialize perfectly well, but you likely feel that the real joy of life lies in being free and by yourself. As such, that makes you a friendly, but private and somewhat distant person to those who don’t know you. Your sense of individuality is especially heightened with Scorpio asc. The key to finding that place where you feel you are alone on your own journey is to chase after what you like. The weirder, the better. Aquarius moons find comfort in solitude (with Cancer), freedom, and through doing something unique and uncommon. Settling for what’s normal or what others tell you is best or easiest will never work.
After my hiatus due to travel and moving, I’m starting to answer these one by one! I’ll do a few a day so I won’t load down my posts with questions and answers.
These tumblr questions are a sort of sample reading, so you can get a glimpse about what astrology can help you understand about yourself. If you want to hear much more content, detail, and other facets of yourself and what might be coming for your life, let’s have a consultation sometime. :)
Thank you, and Happy new year.. I will be posting about what’s coming in 2013 for you all in the very near future. :)
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. :) I’m sorry I haven’t answered all of your questions yet. I’ve been hopping off an on a few airplanes but I’ll get to those soon. :)
As you might know, right now, the planet Mercury is in Retrograde.
Mercury retrograde means that the planet Mercury appears to be going backwards in our view from space. But astrologically, what does it mean?
You know, Mercury Retrograde has a really bad reputation for messing up contracts, communications, gadgets and computers, but I actually think that it’s perfect timing for Thanksgiving that Mercury is retrograde.
Well, it usually happens about 3 to 4 times a year, for about 3 weeks time. When Mercury is retrograde, it usually means that communications can be misconstrued easily, that it’s a time for reflection instead of action. Other implications can be that your car and other electronics have technical difficulties. In general, the way we communicate with others in this world kind of goes haywire. In general, miscommunications, miswordings and other misunderstandings tend to become more common.
But, astrology always has a good side. And Thanksgiving is the best time for Mercury Retrograde to happen. Want to know why? Because Mercury Retrograde is a time for reflection, thinking about the past and how it can move you forward in the future. It’s about searching deep within yourself and seeing how your life has progressed and where to go next. It’s not a time for action, but for inward thinking. And what better time to do that than now, when you’re searching for reasons for why you’re thankful about life and those around you?
My main point is this; Fully immerse yourself in the spirit of reflection and finding thanks for what’s around you. Because Mercury Retrograde will help us make huge leaps forward and it’s telling us it’s an important time to do so. Don’t distract yourself from what’s important, and think deeply about what makes you thankful. Thanksgiving is a time of rewinding, rest, and contemplation on a spiritual level. Mercury Retrograde means you can make some really good realizations and come across all kinds of new appreciation for everything. It’s an astrologically very fruitful time to have this holiday, and to think about what you’re thankful about.
Let’s be thankful that Mercury Retrograde is in effect today, and let’s not forget its amazing potential to help us realize what we truly are happy about in our lives. Don’t distract yourself, simply think back, relax, reflect, and enjoy what’s around you.
And I’m thankful for all of you reading this, and all of my followers, and all of the love in my life. And I’m thankful for Mercury Retrograde, too. I hope you all will live in the spirit of it and think deeply today. It’s the perfect time to do so.
Love and thanks,
To see through the heart of the Sagittarius Moon is to see a car driving down an endless desert road, a climb up a high mountain, a person clutching a passport as an airplane flies into new borders, or to simply see the world itself. These visions reflect the nomadic, active, passionately curious heart of the Sagittarius Moon. The dreams of Sagittarius Moons take them on a plane to anywhere, to the farthest of places and to the highest of ideas, the peaks of optimism, in the hope of understanding the Universe. The curiosity of a Sagittarius Moon is rivaled by few, because quite simply, the Sagittarius Moon’s heart is as big as the world itself. That of course, explains why they want to fill their life with as much richness as exists in the world. With a Sagittarius Moon, you get a restless spirit, never content with local, uniformity, or sameness… always looking for global, diverse, and expansive. The Sagittarius Moon seeks for connection to the Universe.
The Scorpio Moon person is Pandora’s Box - a calm exterior, unassuming and unemotional on the outside, but looming with a wealth of emotions, intense, joyful, angry and vengeful all at the same time, whirling together in a fantastic and dramatic storm. This is the emotional nature of the Scorpio moon person. It is almost as if they feel pain and love more deeply than any other, and they have no way of showing it. And this is the side you experience if you get to know them well enough. A rare feat, because a Scorpio Moon does not let in confidantes lightly.
this full moon brings several things to the surface within your psyche, like beautiful debris rising in an ocean after a ship sinks.
you’ll likely notice a few things stirring within yourself today. first, you will notice that the mystery of death and life will be especially captivating… the words of that song seem to ring with something so familiar, meanings that reach far beyond what’s so cliche today. you may feel yourself portrayed as a player on a grand board game, heroically reaching towards his or her goals, strategizing, calculating. Something from beyond, deep within you, is aching to let you know where to head next. Pay close attention to what hints and suggestions you get today. They may just hit you in the right spot, and suddenly, you know exactly what to do with yourself next, how to proceed with things. What you see in the world today will accurately reflect what you already know on the inside - how to proceed forward.
The full moon signifies that if you’ve been engaging in some sort of mental or emotional warfare, it will reach a peak of tension today. Secrets aren’t safe, especially ones hidden under pressure or shame. If you’ve been tiptoeing, deceiving, or feel that’s been done to you… the truth might come up about all of that today. Particularly nasty, unbecoming, or uncomfortable feelings may creep up on you… be sure to release all of these things when you feel them. Don’t sweep it under the rug. It will build up pressure and explode. Secrecy is not going to work well today at all. Answer all questions honestly and directly to avoid dealing with the elevated fallout that will come from it, specifically at this time..
Today, that tension will explode… or tensions will become so thick you can “cut it with a knife.” If you’ve been avoiding uncomfortable emotions lately, or feel something wrong has been happening, don’t be surprised if it all surfaces today. Alternatively, overriding feelings that are hard to acknowledge or notice will become clear today. If you’re thinking about making some big decisions, today’s a day to reflect on your options, listen for inspiration. It will seem like the whole world is conspiring to send you a message directly.
Signs most affected: Taurus, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Cancer,
Signs least affected: Virgo, Pisces, Aries
enjoy the mystery, but don’t create any of your own..
In lieu of what’s been happening with Mars going forward, this is a day where we’re prone to not being true with our feelings. Stifling ourselves a bit, feeling as if there’s a blockage in connecting with others, feeling isolated. Overall, there might have been a sense of loneliness last night. A sense of separation from what you’ve felt has given you so much excitement before. I even feel that way about my favorite artist right now… it’s a little upsetting. It might just feel like you’re trapped in feelings that are uncomfortable.
Don’t panic. These things pass. Our thoughts can sometimes isolate us from our own happiness… well, obviously, that happens a lot. Just recognize our minds constantly morph and evolve and new feelings come about all the time, stirring us from this short lived emotional rut we might be in. You may be asking if something’s wrong with the way you’ve been living your life. The truth is that most likely, the passion is drawn out of everything. Out of a sense of mental exhaustion.
This influence is miniscule and will pass within today. Everything that you’ve been accustomed to just feels kind of dry and normal, mundane. I don’t think this indicates you should radically change everything around you, just sit with the feeling and allow your thoughts to come. Examine them, but don’t stir them up. But if you let the thoughts, you’ll know for sure whether or not what you’ve been doing with your life is true. Momentary doubt is coming, if you could call it that. You might just be tapped out of passion in your every day routine.
Good activities to do today: Get out of the house and go somewhere that you love. Stimulate interesting conversations, ask a lot of hypothetical questions, break from the routine, destress, treat yourself to really good, new food. Live completely in the moment and draw in all the things that you like about what’s around you.
Signs most affected: Libra, Aries, Virgo
Signs least affected: Pisces, Taurus, Scorpio
Don’t worry. Stress has your brain a bit fried, but we all have amazing abilities to recuperate. Pat yourself on the back and buy a nice dessert for yourself or something. Focus on what has you excited for the future and start living in that.
So you may have noticed that from January to April, not much has been going on. Things were at a standstill, no progress appears to have been made, and people have been running in circles, unable to release their frustration. People have had so little opportunity to release their anger, be aggressive, and assert themselves that we’ve all become stagnant.
Well, now Mars is moving forward again for a long time. And this is what happens: Blown up fights, tension exploding, issues that weren’t addressed directly in the last few months are coming again, full force. Drama is unfolding, fights are coming up and tensions continue to run high. You thought what was bothering you for the last few months would be tolerable, but it continues to surmount, the discomfort becomes unbearable. Basically, the little things that were bothering you about people or your situation have blown up in your face. My best advice - confront your issues firmly and directly. Say exactly what you want and need. Assert yourself when you feel like you’re being used. Call people out when you notice something’s wrong. The best thing to do is to roll with the flow of Mars, who is trying to coax the fighter and the aggressor out of you again. Say what you mean, what you feel. Don’t be afraid to hurt some feelings, because you have to stick up for yourself and say what’s right. Face any discomfort and make deliberate moves to address it.
Signs most affected: All. Particularly - Libra, Aries, Pisces, Virgo. Or those with major personal planets in these signs.
Signs least affected: None.
Roll with the punches, but throw a few of them too.
i find horoscopes are broad and hard to make applicable to everyone but they can still be very well done. i’ve had a lot of experience with them.
i’m not sure if the concept is what i’m aiming for but. i’ll think about it.
let me know your opinion on horoscopes.

Hmm… how to describe this one
It’s like being hit by a bolt of lightning, without the pain and death. A giant blast of energy out of nowhere strikes you, leaves you dumbfounded, confused, but certainly it’s also left you redefined and evolved.
It feels like bolts of unordinary, powerful, or intuitive thoughts have stricken us for the past few days. emotions can run raw, you can feel power coursing through your being, and you may discover that your willpower and goals have been redefined - suddenly you know of something new you want in your life. suddenly things that seem to fit for your life; ideas, notions, or emotions, have come out of nowhere. and it’s left you dumbstruck. like you feel your purpose is authenticated, that social standards can go to hell, and you’re affirmed of your position in this world.
It’s as if something has incited a dormant part of yourself. A part of yourself that has remained buried for what feels like ages, but suddenly you feel your world has expanded, you feel alive, your purpose has aligned in this world, and whatever has surrounded you is surely divine (if you believe in that kind of thing, of course). Feelings feel authentic, reaffirmed by the universe.
Ride the waves of self evolution, if you feel it rings true for you. Sit in it as long as you can. I know I am.
