Sun Opposite Moon

Natal Sun opposite Moon
gives a push and pull tension between logic and intuition which builds mental endurance muscle. The life force of the Sun struggling against habits of the Moon generate vitality and zest for life. Constantly balancing this Full Moon polarity can keep one strong and centred, like a tightrope walker holding a long pole. It seems to show triumph over adversity. The imagination of the Moon having to play rival to the creativity of the Sun makes one prolific and productive, like having an internal Lennon/McCartney. This is often shown in multi-marriages and multi-talents. Also gives childhood prodigy and a very early determination to shine at all costs. The individual can come across as tough and competitive, and certainly formidable, having this internal battle going on between these two astrological heavy weights.

  1. Hello, I have Leo Sun Aquarius moon in vedic astrology. I also share this aspect with my mother. I was raised quite differently and have always had an inner conflict. I have felt quite controlled by the slow more grounded type because of my high energy. I’m 23 so I’m still learning about this (glad to have caught it early lol). Luckily they’re both fixed positive signs! So I’ve been able to tackle it a bit easier!

  2. Taurus sun and scorpio moon….

    Feel that struggle also, my instant reaction would be one thing than RIGHT after I have reacted my mind changes and I Think WHY did I just say that. Or when for example posting something on social media, the moment I have posted it I am totally fine with that than the next day I be like… what is wrong with you take that shit of your fb. haha Same with work, my passion is fashion design, I love that. BUT my moon sign pulls me towards the occult magic and all kinds of crazy things (wich I love just as much!!) You see that just doesn´t mix. there is no way you can make that relationship work. Taurus HATES that deep crazy stuff its more down to earth Chill, and Scorpio can shoot that materialistic Taurus.. NO WAY..

    But I have found the perfect solution…I DO BOTH!!! haha keep myself centered and allow both sides to shine!

  3. I have a Pisces Sun with Virgo Moon
    No wonder the constant inner-struggle. When the pisces inside me wants to dream, the virgo inside me tries to face all the facets of practicality. I am constantly torn between my rational and emotional mind, between my emotions and logical explanations. One is the epitome of imagination and dreams, while other is the epitome of logic and systematic approach. Together, they create the world of ART(pisces) and CRAFT(virgo)

  4. hello,
    i also have a sun taurus 9th , opposite my moon in scorpio 3rd.
    the push pull is tough to deal with, totally get it!
    i’m studying alchemy, and it has helped acknowledge the disparity…i’m working on it ; )

    1. I have a Taurus Sun and Moon in Scorpio… I agree the inner struggle can be very real, but in the end it builds and helps us grow as people. One thing I can say is we learn from our lessons.

  5. Like the Buddha I have a Taurus Sun vs Scorpio Moon. His first noble truth was “Life is suffering”, with which I totally agree. Yet the tug-of-war inside me does indeed keep me going and growing. Sometimes I wish life would be only sunshine, but then the moon rises and I’m glad to be at least in part a creature of the night.

  6. Very nice to read all these comments! I am a 20 years old female with Pisces Sun and Virgo Moon… No doubts, they both are extremely different, even opposite, lol! I have a constant struggle between intuition and logic, but I am learning to use them both to achieve great heights 🙂

    Because of this placement, I call myself ‘Virgin Fish’, lol 🙂

    1. u need to sort out what you want and what you need , then you’re alright 😉

  7. i just wanted to let you all know & to say that You are not alone xD lol

    i have Sun-Moon Opposition & the inner struggle is hard but hopefully worthwhile & all =] in the end ,,

  8. I have sun/moon exact opp – Cancer Sun/Cap Moon–and it has been a daily battle since birth. The tension is constant, so one has to find a way, meditate, listen to music, get into the arts to mitigate the tension-blow off some steam…to make matters even harder, my Sun and Mars in Cancer are conjunct. It has taken me decades to understand how to make significant and positive use of this energy pattern. Howver, the effort has had its rewards.

  9. I have my moon in cancer in my first house opposite my sun in capricorn in my 7th. I have always felt a pull between emotion and practicality within myself. It has kept me balanced throughout major tragedies in my life. It has also taken me a long time to be comfortable with the person I project to the world vs. who I really am. I definitely feel the yin and yang within myself at all times.

    1. Hi luna,
      It seems that I have the same natal chart as yours, I really would like to have further discussions with u (because I feel we may have similar personalities)

      Are u interested?

  10. I was just looking at my youngest son’s chart and noticed that he had his Sun in the 5th opposite his moon in the 11th. I’m wondering if this is responsible for his imagination skills which has him prefering to create his own toys and games rather than utilizing the store bought ones…or it could be his Saturn/Jupiter yod with Neptune as the action point. Btw, I came here first to learn about the opposition! 🙂
