Sun Opposite Moon

  1. 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.
