[ad]A Capricorn asks:
I’m Capricorn Sun and Cancer Moon, I notice I attract mostly Scorpio and very recently, Cancer. I enjoy the spiritual depths of Scorpio and Cancer. I’m also a homebody, extremely financially responsible and prefer old world customs. I’m interested in a Cancer Sun/ Capricorn Moon. Should I get my hopes up?
I can see why you would want a Cancer Sun/ Capricorn Moon. Having two Sun-Moon conjunctions in synastry would seem to be the ingredients for a perfect marriage. But how do you go about finding such a person? (If you’ve already found someone specific, and this is not just a theoretical longing, please ignore the following rant.)
If you’re looking for, say, someone in their late forties, a July 8, 1960 birthdate fits the bill. Someone in their late thirties? July 17, 1970. I could go on. Buy an ephemeris and look for any birthday that has this combination — or pay an astrologer to do it — and then put a classified ad on craigslist.org listing all the dates.
You’ll get responses (hopefully) from only those who fit your criteria. Screen them over email, go on dates, maybe go steady with one or two, get engaged, yada yada. And who are you stuck with? Someone much like you! What fun is that?
Not that there’s anything wrong with the attraction. I’ve been drawn to Aquarius Sun/ Pisces Moon types in my day. (There’s your roundabout answer, if anyone feels compelled to ask about my sign!) No doubt, a match like this can feel very comfortable. But there’s something to be said for variety.
And if you’ve already found him or her? Work it!
