Yesterday, a client told me that based on her reading over the years, moon square moon in synastry is considered a deal-breaker in relationships. Does it mean you’ll never be happy? She asked for my evaluation of this aspect.
In my experience, moon square moon may not show itself that dramatically until and unless the couple decides to live together. At that point, they may find their concepts of what constitutes “homey and comfortable”, clash.
Now that’s not to say this can’t be overcome. It can be overcome.
My client mentioned her grandparents. They had moon square moon but remained happily married all their lives. I felt this had to do with their generation.
Sixty years ago, people got married and they stayed that way. This was desired and necessary for most people, if they wanted to have children, a home and some security in life. I also think their expectations were more realistic. You’re a person. The other person is a person. Neither are perfect. You choose to work together.
Today, people want their partner to deliver, bliss and hot sex and total agreement or else! Or else they’re out the door! They rarely realize the challenge they pose to their partner.
If you bring astrology into it, you’re going to loaded with ammo. There is always going to be something you can point at to explain why your relationship failed. But what about love?
Love cannot be reduced to an equation. What if you LOVE someone? What if you love someone whose moon squares your own?
What if you realized that you do LOVE the person and while your ideas of what’s comfy might differ, you become willing to sacrifice some of yours for the sake of theirs or vice versa or you both give a bit? The minute you do that, you (and your love) will GROW.
Compare that to the other option. My moon squares yours – I’m out of here. Then you run off and try to make it work with someone you don’t love, but whose moon trines yours.
Sorry, but there are legions of people who do this or something similar. I hate to tell you but it’s not that smart!
When you love someone and run into a problem, you can work it out. In doing so both parties benefit, greatly, especially over time.
Does your moon square your partner’s? How does is play out?
