“But she’s mine all mine to the end of the line, till some silly boy tries to take her away. I’d give my life for her, I’d gladly die. Suddenly I realize, I’ve always wanted brown eyes… looks like I got my brown eyes.”
–The Bacon Brothers
My oldest, my son, got my water Sun-Mercury. The middle, Nems, got those as well. They both got Saturn aspecting the Moon which is reminiscent of my Capricorn Moon, but both of their Moons are in air. The youngest, though, got my exact same Capricorn Moon as well as its square to Venus (which opposes my Venus). Her Sun in Virgo opposes my Sun. The Moon in Capricorn is not an easy Moon and its square to Venus is a tough one to handle. She got my toughest aspects and the toughest challenges in getting her needs met. Moon in Capricorn can have a hard road in particular in their relationship with the mother… me. Ouch.
Because of this I pay close attention when she expresses an emotional need. This is a kid with an insatiable appetite for hugs, the one who does the “Mom, mom, mommy, mom, MOM, mommy… I love you,” thing. I make a special effort to curb any annoyance I might feel and address her core, emotional need. After all, most of the babies in larger families get a lot of attention, but that is not the case for her. Her family (Moon) is somewhat restricted or reserved (Saturn), so I try to remember that and to correct for it.
The shirt she’s wearing in the picture is a hand-me-down, as are most of her clothes. Luckily she’s happy with wearing her sister’s seconds (tradition), but when she does express a real need I try to accommodate. When she asks for something special I know she needs it, because she rarely asks for much.
Are there similarities between the charts in your family? Did you get a hand-me-down planet?
