“That’s the way discussions go down in this family. I tell them my needs, and they say no. Then dad reveals another cartoon character he’s afraid of.”
–Malcolm in the Middle
Archetypically, in addition to other things, the Sun and Moon in the chart resonate to the roles of father and mother. Our arrival in the family and the energy of our Sun and Moon draw out certain things from our parents. Talk about the law of attraction! Our very being draws out similar energy in others. Sometimes the positive manifestation and sometimes the negative. In our Moon sign we can often see a broad-stroke painting of the way we were parented by the mother. The same can be said of the Sun and the father. This also works with step-parents. Now we just have to figure out how to make this into a drinking game.
Can you see this association with your Sun and Moon and your parents?
