When Uranus is tied up with the Moon, you can bet on having a few surprises when it comes to family. The Moon rules your family/roots, and Uranus rules all things shocking. With Moon opposite Uranus natally, I know this all too well. Sometimes my family might as well be a three-ring circus.
There’s the time I discovered that my father’s distant relatives run a mafia-like scheme involving marijuana, moonshine, and mail fraud, among other things (they did offer to let us use their land for any bodies we need buried. At least they’re polite??). Or the relative who decided to move across the country and establish her own mini swinger commune. Or the one who was expelled from school for threatening to disembowel his teacher.
It’s so bad that I, the weirdo astrologer who still plays with Legos and has never worn matching socks a day in her life, am considered the normal one!
This is hardly a position the Moon likes to be in. The Moon is dignified in Cancer and exalted in Taurus. It likes things soft, fuzzy, and stable. Family, ideally, is supposed to be soft, fuzzy, and stable. Uranus is anything but.
There’s so much to say about Moon-Uranus connections and I’ll definitely be back with more. But for now, share your Moon-Uranus stories!
