(english translation of a post I made recently to a forum at astro.com
What I will say here about the Moon can, of course, be directly applied
to the Moon in a birth chart (or in the usual ways partially to Cancer
or 4th/10th house, etc.) - but it also carries distinctively further:
As I hope to show, the Moon is linked much more deeply and directly
with the very nature of astrology than recognized thus far.
Before I can do that, I must first unfold a few things...
*Round Things and Turning in Circles*
The moon changes its "face" periodically during the course of each
month: From empty to full and back. Hence and also because the moon is
visually round the identification of everything round/cyclic with the
Exactly because with the Moon everything turns in round, you cannot
describe and analyze it all that logically linearly, hence instead
simply a catalog of lunar things, they will soon start to interweave...
*A Mirroring, Reflecting "Nothing"*
The moon "only" reflects the light of the sun; for example if the Moon
is in Leo it is not as with the Sun measurably midsummer, but it still
has an effect.
If you want to understand a seemingly mysterious complex woman as a man,
you should then often not to think to complicated, not "project too much
light" into it. With thinking very simply, you often get already quite
close, even if you then still have not chance to reach the "nothing" at
the very end.
Oscar Wilde has driven this to the extremes in the "The Sphinx without a
Secret"*, where a woman simply rented a room just to cultivate her so
beautifully "empty" secret, by spending a few hours every week there and
not doing anything in particular there...
* The Sphinx without a Secret:
*Artemis/Hecate and the Spring Point*
The moon goddess Artemis was born shortly before her twin brother
Apollon and immediately helped as a midwife at his birth. As a midwife
she is where new life emerges or generally where new things are created.
Hecate is rather a death goddess, and the only one of the old gods in
Greek mythology who kept her place after the revolution by Zeus and his
generation. In that sense, she is the most immortal goddess, older than
all gods that were, are and will be.
Often they were seen as a unit, at the point between death and
Astrologically this transition is between the end of Pisces and the
start of Aries at the beginning of spring.
*The Love for Art*
If you live forever like Hecate, other things become important than for
Humans come and perish again so quickly, but works of art abide with
Artemis for centuries and more as "companions". Everything what seems
important to humans in life she has seen again and again, only what
comes in intensity to a birth or death still has a certain meaning to
Conversely, Artemis is always hunting for new things, completely wild,
untamed Avantgarde. On the search for something new and intensive enough
to still make sense in her eternal life.
*Symmetry and Asymmetry and Opposites*
Now I am about to start to weave things. For men I should maybe mention
that this can in a way get very illogical, because opposites often do
not contradict themselves around the Moon, but rather fertilize each
The beauty of women is often based on passively mirroring and being
round. This is certainly also physically optically by showing or hiding
of round and mirrored attributes like eyes, breast with nipples and
backside. But there also, in one move so to speak, playing with
asymmetry, with hairdo or clothes, especially artists and so often show
lots of asymmetry to there, sometimes it can also be directly physically
with different eye colors, etc. And, of course, the whole thing is not
limited to what is visually apparent, a beautiful women is also "round"
Side remark: In order to interest a woman, you can try to make this
passive roundness turn, i.e. not by approaching her frontally, but
somehow again and again "tangentially" and thus make her turn. What is
not supposed to mean that the man would then control the game, of
The black-and-white Chinese Yin-Yang symbol with lots of round elements
which probably everybody knows has its historical origins also in the
image of a hill, where during the course of a day the sunny and shadowy
side trade places, thus opposites and yet One and periodically in
Exactly therefore besides round things also what is very distinctively
angled is also very lunar, etc.
