Born on a Full Moon?

topic posted Mon, September 12, 2005 - 9:30 PM by  Jeffz
I recently learned that I was born on a full moon ( from my sun and moon signs being opposite). Can't seem to find anything about this on the net, does it have any significance? Someone said it means you are naturally psychic, which is nice ;)

    It sure does - and lots. Here's a tiny bit - "You are highly objective, clear minded and aware of your own needs and the needs of others".

      Sun opposition Moon

      People born when the Sun opposes the Moon have an internal struggle between their needs and their wants. In contrast to the Sun-Moon conjunction personality, the Full Moon personality is inclined towards lack of focus and indecision. Their ability to be objective is both an asset and a liability, simply because when they decide on one route, they are pulled in another direction at the same time. Something tugs at them, and they begin to question their stance. "But what if..." and "on the other hand..." are statements they can't help making and that plague them.

      While Sun conjunct Moon people have an Aries style about them, Sun opposition Moon natives have a distinct Libra energy about them, in that they are always aware of the opposing point of view, the other side of the coin, and so forth.

      Their inner struggle is most obvious in their vitality, as both the Sun and the Moon strongly influence the vitality. They have many ups and downs, and it is hard to know if it is physical or emotional. In fact, it's likely both. These people might spend a week working hard, and the following week they lack motivation and find it hard to accomplish much. Their energy fluctuates more than most people, and it is very much a reflection of what is going on inside.

      The messages they received in their early lives in terms of what was expected of them were conflicting, and even opposite. Some people born under the Full Moon viewed their parents as two very different and separate individuals who each wanted something very different from their child. Their parents or parent figures "stood for" two very different things, and their child internalized this. There may have been some emotional frustration in connection with the father and a stifling of the go by the mother.

      It is hard for Sun opposition Moon people to find happiness within themselves. They tend to look outside of themselves for fulfillment. They are inclined to form serious relationships at an early age, simply because of this tendency to try to find an answer to happiness from an "other". They are prone to divorce, partly because of this prematurity, and partly because their needs are complicated. Full Moon people are also more apt to seek counseling because of this need to find answers.

      These people appear to be very self-aware. They entertain a myriad of different points of view and perspectives. They are excellent psychologists and are able to read character and uncover motivations--but with an important caveat: if they are too emotionally close to the situation, they fumble. The truth is, although they appear to know much about how people tick, they spend a good part of their lives uncovering more of themselves and learning about themselves. Generally, this is done through comparisons or through the mirror of relationships.

      They can most certainly frustrate the people who are close to them with their indecisiveness and frequent changes of mind (and of heart). A word to those who deal with this on a day-to-day basis: their changes of heart are not a form of insincerity--they are the result of an internal struggle that is very real and very confusing to live with! Sun opposition Moon people can be temperamental, insecure, and very sensitive.

      The ability to put themselves in someone else's shoes, and to consider other points of view, is a true asset. However, at some point in their lives, they need to uncover what it is they truly want. This comes easy to New Moon people, and can be a life-long struggle for Full Moon people. On the other hand, it is extremely easy for a Full Moon personality to understand others' points of view--something that doesn't come as easily to a New Moon personality. Sun opposition Moon people are generally interesting and complex. Born under a Full Moon, they can be a bit "loony", perhaps manifesting itself in a unique sense of humor.

      Look for a planet that might trine and sextile the Sun-Moon opposition for a way to release the tension the opposition creates. Somehow, some way, through that planet, its sign, and its house position, the Sun opposition Moon person can find an "answer" to the struggle. Look also to the sign polarity involved for more details of the struggle. If it's Aries and Libra, for example, there is a conflict between two equal drives to be independent and to depend on others.

          Yes, the thing is to accentuate the positive and learn from the negative, the moon opposite the sun can be one of the best aspects (hey, it’s a full moon full expression)

          The key with oppositions is learning how to integrate the two so that they can both function at the same time.

          Not back and forth… insights into Libra will show you how (no judgment, and here we thought Libra meant seeing both sides)

            Yeah, I am a Gemini too, so really get torn apart. Mainly when I was younger. I am much more comfortable with my "hypocrisy" nowadays - still a long way to go but I think I have found where the road begins at least :)

              remember the whole chart should be figured in and accounted for...


              Ah that’s a great one and easier ...this has to do with learning and experiencing

              walk it like you talk it

              The combination of this Sun/Moon produces a very uncontrollable personality. You are frank, honest, and very restless. Your highly individualistic nature has you running in high gear nearly all the time.

              You are the type that knows a little bit about many things, and you're sure always to have an opinion on about any subject that comes up. Oddly enough, though your knowledge is often rather like the jack of all trades. Your honesty and frankness can be a problem if you let it.

              Anyone who asks will be told exactly what you think of them, with no omissions for the sake of tact and diplomacy. It's not sacrificing your integrity to hold your tongue at times, just showing good sense.

              You need to cultivate mental accuracy(see we don't know where's Mercury), for the analytical and scientifically critical bent is not native to you. Serious and specific mental training is necessary to curb the restlessness in your nature. Your witty personality and your quickness and facility of thought will take you far, but sooner or later you will have to realize that the world is not nearly as simple as you seem to think, or is it?

              Gemini Sun / Sagittarius Moon = My ideas, my way of communicating, my knowledge and perspective vs. social ideas, moral concepts, legally enforceable tenets and ethics, my overall philosophy of life. When stressed the attitude of the Gemini Sun is flighty, high-strung, hard to pin down, and insincere; that of the Sagittarius Moon is hypocritical, bombastic, pretentious, and holier-than-thou.

                  Leo rising? ah man, this makes it even better

                  would that put your sun in the 11th house and the moon in the 5th?

                        I would love for it be explored!

                        I am more numeroligist than astrologer I just understand the basics (but have learned LOTS from you here!!). I see all those shapes you talk about but not sure what they all mean exactly.

        i was born at the full moon in Cancer.
        while i do have distinct polarities, i've got Uranus at the exact midpoint between these two, in Libra. I find this profound, as a balancing point between the extremes, my creativity and innovation always finds a clever way of harmonizing. I have had some difficulty sometimes mediating the selfish/selfless polarity of Capricorn and Cancer but i just give it extra attention to keep it in balance.

        I'm definitely very affected by the moon and especially when the moon is in a water sign.
