The following Sun-Moon interpretations for Sun in Aries are partial descriptions from the Heaven Knows What report. The report itself features refinements to the interpretations that incorporate other positions and aspects in the personal natal chart.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Aries
Whatever anyone else can say about you, it will never be that you don’t know your own mind. In fact, it’s far more likely that they will say you know your own mind too well and are too ready to express whatever comes into it, for independence is the outstanding trait of your nature – independence in both intellectual and material matters. You are an individualist, first, last, and always; you believe in yourself, and in your own ability to overcome the forces of heaven and earth, man and God, in order to arrive at that goal of personal ambition which is so clearly defined in your mind as to be already an actuality.
You are likely to be somewhat intolerant of divergent opinions on the part of others. Not only are you intolerant of them, but you may just plain not understand them, for understanding is not your strong point. The troubles of other people are not especially interesting to you, although by a paradoxical twist you frequently expect other people to listen to your troubles, at some considerable length. Not because you want or need or expect or would be likely to use advice, but just because you are so absorbed by your own problems that you expect everyone else to be willing and even anxious to listen to them. You express readily and forcefully and with considerable dramatic effect.
All in all, you are a rather impressive person and more likely than not to go places and do things with that excellent quick intelligence and that absorption in your own life, your own problems, and your own ambitions. Even if you haven’t had a college education – and you are so energetic and ambitious that it’s likely you would leave formal schooling behind, out of sheer impatience – your mind is always active: reading, talking, discussing. You are not a student in the profound sense of the word, but you get things readily and will keep on getting them as long as you live.
There’s nothing the matter with your head – nor with your heart either, as far as that goes. But despite an affectionate nature which craves understanding, you are not likely to get it until you have learned to be more interested in other people. You have to overcome a tendency to appear hard-boiled through being too matter of fact. You see the intellectual and sensible solution to personal problems so readily that you don’t quite get the emotional turmoil of less intellectual people who feel more and analyze less. Try to see things from the other fellow’s viewpoint. Learn to temper your independence with cooperation and tact and with consideration for the wishes and feelings of others, and there is nothing you cannot do. This is one of the best combinations of Sun and Moon and leads far upward, once you have mastered the more self-centered leanings of your nature and learned to objectify.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Taurus
You are one of those tactful and forceful people who manage to do pretty much as they please and get away with it. Your energy, vitality, independence, and magnetism operate under the aegis of a certain charm, reserve, and poise that stabilizes your position, even in the face of enmity and opposition. You can hardly go through life without making enemies, and perhaps very important and powerful enemies at that, but unless other things are very bad in your horoscope, you will always manage to come out at the right end of a quarrel, or at least be able to go on and leave your enemies trailing in the dust.
You are not exactly magnanimous: you are a strong and implacable fighter and give no quarter; but you are too intent on your own problems and ambitions to worry about revenge. You have an acute business sense, and although your artistic and intellectual leanings may lead you into pursuits that are not ordinarily supposed to be remunerative, you are more likely than not to feather your nest pretty well even in the service of the muses. Your best place in life would be an executive one, in charge of some artistic or intellectual project, for you are a manager as well as a creator.
You have a curious way of appearing tactful even when you are laying down the law or insisting on your own way, and you are pretty likely to get what you want out of people and make them like it. If they don’t like it, that’s too bad. You are somewhat considerate of others, but, more than this, you have a way of making people think you are being considerate of them when you are doing exactly as you jolly well please. To more dependent sorts of people, this makes you seem not exactly hard-boiled but a little detached from ordinary human frailty; even your weaknesses have a sort of air about them, as if you could overcome them if you wanted to but don’t think it’s worth the trouble.
You have an “I can take it or I can leave it alone” attitude about pleasure, indulgence, and other off-the-routine matters, which is the despair of people who have consciences or acute sense of the value of time. The truth of the matter is that you don’t waste time at all but do what you have to do in a clipped, efficient, and scheduled manner, so that you have time left over after you have accomplished more than most people do with all their time. You are likely to think pretty well of yourself, although you may be quiet about it and not cram it down people’s throats; but a pervading sense of your own abilities is the foundation of your life. Few people with this position will be found with any vestige of an inferiority complex, and the reverse is likely to be more nearly their story. You have to learn to rule without dominating and to adjust your desires not only to your own needs but to the happiness of those around you.
In a man’s horoscope, this position usually indicates a splendid, helpful, and possibly a wealthy wife who stabilizes him, adds to his prestige, and in every way contributes to his success. A woman with this combination is likely to wear the trousers of the family to pretty good purpose.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Gemini
This is one of the most talkative positions in the entire Zodiac. You have to learn to keep things to yourself at least until you’ve made up your own mind, which you don’t find easy to do. Concentration is not your strong point, and you seem to feel that by sitting down and talking about it everything will be made manifest and clear and your course of action laid out for you. This somehow fails to work. Your best way to success is to learn, and practice, the art of secrecy; go off in a corner with your problems, and fight them out with yourself before you take the world and his wife into your confidence. And speaking of the world and his wife, you are extremely fond of the details of their lives and like to talk them over with all and sundry. You have a keen sense of news values – which may not be so pleasant to those of your friends who want to keep certain matters in the dark. This is all well and good so long as no one is hurt, but you are likely to have a pretty sharp tongue in spite of your good intentions, and to barb your quips and rumors so that they stick. Just be careful that they don’t turn around on you and come back flying in your face.
Naturally, with your keen intellectual endowments, your facile manner of expression, and your delight in drama, news, and romance, you should make your career along one of these lines: writer, speaker, actor, advertising – anything that deals with the written or spoken word. You have a sort of hankering to be an executive, but this isn’t precisely your forte. You have a pretty shrewd business head which, applied in the literary world, ought to get you well paid for whatever you produce; for in spite of your sometimes jittery inability to make up your mind (which would hurt you as an executive) you have no trouble making up your mind about what you are worth in dollars and cents, and in getting it by hook or crook.
You are not exactly tactful, but you’re able to get what you want by a rapid flow of argument, logic, and reasons pro and con. You know all the answers and know also how to use them to your own advantage. You will talk (and write) your way through the world and make a lot of friends who will admire your glibness, your quickness, your wit, and your insight, which you are able so aptly to express.
Not a deep student, you are none the less likely to be, or to appear to be, the best informed person around, for you pick things up readily and glean odds and ends of knowledge as you go along, being able to haul them out at impressive moments. If you would apply this mental ability to concentrated study there is nothing in an intellectual way that you could not accomplish, but restlessness is likely to take you away from books and formal study and plunge you early into the active life of the world. You should try to overcome a certain superficiality with respect both to intellectual and emotional matters, for you’re likely to appear in both these respects a little flighty.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Cancer
Well, there’s no doubt about it – you are sensitive, extremely sensitive – and extremely capable. You have a good deal of pride in your own ability, a sort of determination to live up to the best that is in you in a personal and artistic way. This is one of the positions that makes for both artists and executives, students and doers at the same time, for your intellectual powers are strong and are bolstered up still further by an intuitive understanding of both people and things. You know how to catch the imagination of your audience, however broad or narrow it may be, without giving up any least iota of your own individualism, which is peculiarly precious to you. You have a keen social sense and a sense of the dramatic, which makes you lively company when you’re in the mood.
You are much subject to moods and can change from sprightly gayety to pretty heavy dejection, all in the twinkling of an eyelash. You know how to manage people to your own ends, which, if the truth can be known, do not always coincide with the ends of other people. There’s a good deal of selfishness here – perhaps not selfishness so much as self-centeredness. You know well enough what will make other people happy, but you are more likely than not to give your own whims precedence over the needs of other people – at the same time that you are able to make them think that you are really the best and most considerate of souls. You wouldn’t willfully hurt a fly, but, on the other hand, it seems as if you frequently do hurt people without understanding that you are doing so.
You have a keen sense of the dramatic and could therefore be successful either directly on the stage, as an actor, or in related arts and crafts that deal with drama through the spoken or written word. You are extremely fluent both in speech and writing, with a wit and charm to your manner of expression that make you popular. You give the impression of independence, originality, and dash, even when you’re internally quavering at your own daring and wondering how you are mustering up the courage to appear so exciting.
You love your home and all things connected with it despite the fact that this position often brings obligations from family ties that are far from appealing. You are able, through will power, to work out your intimate personal problems, but in the working out there may be a good deal of self-dramatization which impedes the progress of your rational solution. You should learn, for your greatest success, not to take yourself too seriously in your personal life; and to transfer your dramatic sense and your energy into the outer world where your natural talents will find a public, and a just reward.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Leo
Romance and an adventuresome attitude combine to make your life interesting. You have a keen sense of both of these, and a certain loyalty and fixity of devotion and purpose that make you a good friend, a good sweetheart, and a good business person, despite the fact that you want your own way and pretty generally manage to get it. You love not only individuals but people as a whole, and people, feeling this, flock around you and fill your life with the pleasant contacts of friendship.
You need love and affection and generally manage to get it. This is furthermore a fine executive position, and you are able to manage affairs, both your own and those of others, to excellent advantage. You are expressive, even eloquent, and may have an exceptionally fine speaking voice. Ambition is keenly marked and assumes a personal form. You need success for the gratification of your inner regard for your own ability quite as much as for the plaudits of the world. This makes you a truly creative spirit, for you create out of a combination of the head and the heart which touches your work, whatever it may be, with fire, at the same time that its intellectual content loses nothing. You have a way of making your emotions and your instincts appear plausible and even inevitable, not only to yourself but to your world, with the satisfying result that people take you seriously, sensing the underlying soundness of your nature.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Virgo
You have a fine critical and analytical mind, scientific in its bent rather than creative or executive, but capable through the exercise of mental powers of rising to great heights which may give you the appearance of executive power and authority. Your best road to success, however, is along lines where studious application to details, scientific analysis, and a respect for the known and knowable facts will reap their reward. A lawyer, a doctor, a judge, a scientist – or a business man depending on his own powers of analysis to create his business and success – these are the fields in which you can hope to excel.
But underlying all must be a strong intellectual training-formal schooling if possible, and if this is not possible, continued study on your own, which because of your deep-seated curiosity will be congenial to you. This is the position under which you never stop learning and wanting to learn; you are continually on the search for facts, knowledge, information, and details, and the piecing together all of these facts gives you a grip not only on the details but also on the broader and more general viewpoints which are merely products of a multitude of facts.
You don’t take very much for granted; you expect to do your best yourself, and you brook no slipshod methods in those who work around you, or with you, or for you. You are a stern but just judge. You are likely to sit in judgment on your friends and neighbors for you’re a good deal of a Puritan at heart and have little use for human frailty and weakness. A certain dash to your manner is deceptive in this respect, and makes you appear to be quite a gay person while you are more likely than not to stay strictly within the bounds of convention.
You have to be careful of being too harsh with the frailties of other people, for the judicial note is strong, and there is danger that it will degenerate into a holier-than-thou attitude which is aggravating to more earthbound mortals. You have to remember that people must be judged by their own standards as well as by yours. You can get to the truth of the matter well enough, and it’s up to you to select a matter where the truth is of some consequence.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Libra
This is a curiously difficult position, presenting a problem between the emotional and mental natures. You are ambitious, eager to get ahead and anxious to please people, with a sort of personality that seems to reach out to others as if you are in need of support and guidance and affection from someone or from many people. Despite a nature which in many ways is highly individualized, you are strangely dependent on others – can be thrown off your balance by lack of sympathy, or by coldness, or hardness, or lack of consideration in those around you. This is odd of you because you are perfectly capable of ignoring the feelings, opinions, and wishes of others when you get a set idea in your head. You go ahead in spite of man, God, and the devil, let the chips fall where they may – and like as not they fall right back on you, to your great confusion.
You will undoubtedly be found in a professional or artistic, rather than in an executive career, but you have a hard time concentrating and a tendency to daydream is your besetting evil. You can give the appearance of concentration and of working to beat all get out, at the same time that your mind is millions of miles away.
You are likely to resort to all kinds of devices to accomplish concentration – and when you get it, be unable to do anything anyway. You have to bear in mind, in all things, that the solution to your problems is not to be found in other people or in your surroundings, but in yourself. Until such a time as you cease to look to the outer world for support, sympathy, and guidance and take yourself gently but firmly by the scruff of the neck and (to mix metaphors) look yourself squarely in the face, you are likely to waste your energies woefully.
Whether you’re merely a daydreamer, or think yourself inspired, or a medium, your surest recipe for success is to plant your feet solidly on terra firma, look into your own nature with infinite detachment, and determine how you and the world in which you find yourself may be brought realistically and constructively into contact with each other. A sort of romantic belief in yourself, unaccompanied by action, makes it likely that you will not develop to the highest point, while romantic matters tending to go awry further confuse your mind by introducing a note of frustration. You’ll do best to avoid romance as much as possible. Get your love life settled early and then forget it; learn to take these matters more for granted, less dramatically – for if you don’t your life is likely to be one continuous drama in which you, as the leading character, will not be able to find time for anything of material consequence.
A certain facility for poetry accompanies this position but only in the presence of rigid intellectual training can this be made constructive and progressive. Though your tendency is to the arts, you will make greater progress along more material lines, such as business, in which you will have to force yourself to think things out straight and true, and where perforce you will have to swallow that inspirational lump that keeps rising in your throat. Stick to the facts, and the Great Principles will take care of themselves.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Scorpio
Well, whatever may happen to you, good or bad, life is never going to be dull. Between your own aggressiveness and vitality, your conviction of your own worth, and the way you are able to make the world believe in it, you will have your ups and downs, but you will never lose that zest for living which fills you with energy and inner drive. Although not by any means always happy (you have a way of brooding over secret matters, real or imagined, of which even those closest to you have little knowledge), you none the less give the impression of competence and ability, of holding the strands of your life firmly in your hands and of doing with them pretty much as you please. Even in adversity, you are undismayed; for a combination of faith in yourself, and in some higher power which you may or may not call God, or Luck, surrounds you with a kind of aura of invulnerability.
You seem so competent and capable that you are likely not to get nearly as much sympathy from the world as others do – and you don’t want sympathy; you scorn it. Ready enough to give it to others (though in a rather detached and impersonal manner), you would consider yourself humiliated if sympathy were offered to you. You are able to take care of yourself, and do, and are proud of it, and resent any implication that you can’t. This justifies your pride both to yourself and to the world.
You have a turbulent nature, and in many ways lead a turbulent life. If you are born low, you go high; if you’re born high and secure, you’re likely to go low and jump back again. There’s a steel spring in you that stays wound up, waiting for the emergencies of life, for you are not really ambitious in a worldly sense. You want security, comfort, activity, excitement, perhaps, but you are content with these. You like recognition, but for its own sake rather than for wealth.
Your rewards in life are deeply intimate and personal, and the conviction of your own worth, is of more value to you than all the money or property in the world. Thus, as an artist, though you may, through your vitality and your ability to magnetize the public, achieve some degree of fame and recognition, you pursue your art from a truly inner sense of well-being in a task well done, in a Self properly realized and expressed. But at the same time that you are expressing yourself in this or in some other way, there are deep wells of secret things that you do not express at all – ideas, ideals, dreams, imaginings, that never come to the surface and would surprise your friends if they knew of them if they were not prepared never to be surprised by anything you may do. This great fund of secret ideology provides inspiration if you are an artist of any kind, and magnetic force to your personality, either in business or in social matters.
You are pretty set in your ways, very inflexible when your mind is made up – determined without the appearance of being stubborn (though of course you are stubborn!), and able to convince people peaceably even against their wills. You are exceptionally loyal and devoted in matters of love and stick to your friends through years and years.
You are capable of demanding little and giving much; but you won’t be imposed on, and you have a sure instinct for the chiseler, the sycophant, or the fawner who may seek your friendship merely to be helped by your money or your influence. Him you detect and scorn. But you will give the shirt off your back for a worthy person, though you have in general little interest in causes. You will help individuals and let the causes take care of themselves.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Sagittarius
Independence of thought, action, and speech – that’s you! You believe in the truth with an almost pious devotion – not so much the technical truth of scientific investigation as the fundamental truths of large doctrines, philosophies, abstractions. You are more a speculator than a seeker – details irk you. You look for truth along larger lines. This is likely to lead into the errors of inspirationalism, and unless you temper these grandiose mental tendencies with the scientific method, you’re likely to lapse into obscure generalities and large phrases insufficiently defined.
With your extreme insistence on honor in your own life, you can be a tremendous force for good in the world if you give yourself that rigid mental training which will bring your generalizations down to earth and make them realistically significant. You are in many ways a pioneer, a fighter, a doer, a pleader of new doctrines and lost causes; you are strongly individualistic with a powerful desire to bring your world, whether it be great or small, to your way of thinking.
Your executive powers are strongly marked, taking the form of controlling others with an idea, a thought, a principle, rather than with the power of position or authority. You derive your greatest satisfaction not from power over the bodies of men, but over their minds. You might be the one who said, “Let me write the songs (or the editorials) of the nations, and I care not who makes its laws (or leads its armies).”
You are not especially aware of the feelings of other people but are likely to be acutely aware of your own, which is tough on those around you. You have to cultivate understanding of people as well as of ideas; and in both fields regard for details is the quality of mental and emotional activity that needs attention. While keeping your wagon hitched to a star, you’re likely to drive it into the ditch. You are capable of spouting idealistically about love at the very moment when you’ve forgotten to bring home the groceries your wife wanted.
Your best field of activity is definitely professional – though you are so active physically that you are likely to choose some profession that requires a lot of moving around. You have little capacity or desire for staying in one place. You will achieve your greatest satisfaction through your appeal to other people, and whether you’re a lawyer, an actor, a doctor, or a divine, your self-gratification comes not so much through power or through wealth as it does through Influence.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Capricorn
You have that inner drive of ambition that makes almost inevitably for success. You’re a hard person to get the better of, for you know your own mind and have definite ideas of where you’re going and how you’re going to get there and you let nothing stand in your way. No matter how sweet and gracious you may be, and there’s every chance that you are, at least when you want to be – there’s a hard underlying foundation of rock in your nature that does not get shaken and does not yield to blandishment.
You seem to know the laws of the conservation of energy and to be able to take all the pep, energy, enthusiasm, and magnetism of your makeup and put it into constructive action through the power of a rigidly controlled personality. Your manner of expression is forceful without being offensive; you seem to know instinctively the right way to say the right thing at the right time and powerful people will help you at the beginning of your life as you will help others at the end. One or both parents is likely to mean a great deal to you both psychologically and materially.
You have good sound intellectual equipment which you put to practical use. Abstract knowledge or knowledge for its own sake is of no especial importance to you, though you are an apt, even exceptional student. But your bent is too practical for the abstractions of intellect, and your mind serves the purposes of the world rather than any detached purposes of its own. This leads to various types of careers according to other indications, but in any case the career’s the thing, to which emotional and mental matters become subordinated. You are an opportunist and can take advantage of things as they arise as well as create your own opportunities. All in all, this is a very powerful and dynamic position.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Aquarius
Your interest in people pays large dividends, whether it takes the form of dealing with people in business, in public life or in the remoter forms of public contact. You are highly social and magnetic, and likely in some way or other to be well paid for anything you undertake that depends on your popularity with, or purchasing power of, the masses. You’d make a good salesman, either of merchandise, of yourself, or of any ideas you may have. You give a great impression of being interested in what goes on around you at the same time that you don’t lose sight of the main chance. This combination of assets makes it possible for you to analyze situations pretty accurately where either people or business matters are concerned.
Very little grass grows under your feet. Your life moves at a rapid pace. You’re romantic, courageous, and adventurous; large ventures appeal to you. You have little use for the trifling or the picayune. You probably have had the advantages of a good family background and the education that goes with it, for a certain aristocracy of breeding is denoted by this position, of which you know how to take advantage.
Democratic notions are not marked, for you are an extreme individualist, believing in yourself, and those in your financial and social strata; and despite your success in dealing with people, you have no particular faith in them. Politically, you are more likely to be a reactionary than a liberal. Economically, you believe in capitalism and its perquisites – for the very sufficient reason that this system has in all probability been very good to you. Realizing, however, that success in any system derives from the masses, you are able to conceal your inner feeling that most people are sheep or worse, and to make the most of public and private opportunity.
You are not wanting in self-esteem and it’s likely that your good opinion of yourself, your ideas, and your mode of life contributes to your lack of sympathy with those who think differently, or pursue different modes of life, or dwell on a lower economic scale. You go with the right people, live in the right part of town, belong to the right clubs, and send your children to the right schools. Intellectually you are sound and thorough; emotionally you are romantic and highly idealistic, ardent.
Sun in Aries, Moon in Pisces
You brood and you worry; you’re moody and temperamental. You give a great impression of force, but internally you’re a little timid, a little afraid of the world and even of your own opinions. You’re likely to be imposed upon through this lack of inner conviction, although you bitterly resent being imposed upon. You express readily, having a facile flow of language, and you have a conviction that you know the truth of many matters which for some reason or other you cannot get across to your associates. This is a Cassandra-like position – a prophet who is very likely to be right but can’t make anyone believe him.
Despite your apparent vitality, you’re likely to worry about your health far more than it warrants – and by worry you run the risk of actually producing, through nerves, the sort of physical difficulties you fear. Bold as a lion on the surface, you aren’t nearly so bold underneath, for you’re highly sensitive and afraid of saying or doing the wrong thing. Solitude is periodically necessary to you, and you can regain strength and self-confidence in private. Large gatherings of people are more likely than not to irritate and annoy you; and you are capable of going into a brown (or black) study in the midst of a laughing throng. There’s a liberal dose of introspection here, and also of self-pity and many of your troubles are self-created. You have some difficulty concentrating, and even when environmental conditions are of the best may find yourself not devoted to the task in hand but brooding or dreaming.
Emotionally you are impressionable and run to odd people. You’re likely to bestow your affections quite foolishly, or on some unworthy person, and then to be sorry for yourself instead of making the best of it. In a man’s horoscope this may give a wife who is chronically ill; in a woman’s horoscope it is not good for her health and warns her against trying to live up to the maximum of what she thinks her vitality to be – also against creating physical trouble through nerves and worry.
Your best and most congenial career will be found in something of a highly personal nature such as music, art, poetry, writing – the creative arts – in which your inspirational and brooding tendencies may be harnessed to your energy. You have a broad and deep understanding of many complex matters, and once you have mastered a medium of expression, can catch the hearer’s, or the reader’s, imagination with the somewhat unusual quality of your viewpoint and style. You are not likely to be happy in business though you might be successful.
In any case, this is a highly charitable position, and if you have money under it, you are a philanthropist in the true sense of the word. Even if you haven’t much, you tend to give a good deal of it away.
