Just one of those crazy flings
One of those bells that now and then rings
Just one of those things
When discussing relationship astrology, one could argue that the inter-connections between two people’s Moons is the one that dominates the landscape. After all, one’s natal lunar placement describes one’s perceived needs for comfort and security, as well as one’s emotional responses. Any synastry aspect involving the Moon tells a story of how easily (or not) two people can feel at home with each other. Let us not underestimate the importance of lunar connections between two people in a romantic relationship.
Having said that, here comes the caveat: Even if Mick Jagger wants to paint it black, one cannot paint an entire landscape with just one color. Similarly, one synastry aspect alone cannot describe the complexities of a relationship. With that in mind, this discussion relating to Moon and Uranus inter-aspects offers but one piece of a relationship’s puzzle. Yes, the Moon looms large. At the same time, perspective is useful. Uranus—aka The Awakener—certainly offers perspective. And, when it’s aspecting another person’s Moon, perspective becomes paramount if the relationship is to thrive.
And, while I’m nattering on about perspective, let’s take an overview first, shall we? Uranus is the modern-day ruler of Aquarius. As in, this is the dawning of the…etcetera. Harmony and understanding, Sympathy and trust abounding. No more falsehoods or derisions. Golden living dreams of visions, Mystic crystal revelation, and the mind’s true liberation, Aquarius! These lyrics from the iconic musical “Hair” are some of the best descriptors of the Aquarian vibe—or, at least, one facet of the Aquarian vibe. Because the flip-side of the Aquarian-Uranian coin is—far from brotherhood and collective unity—space, please. Plenty of it. Indeed, the thrust for liberation and freedom is so pronounced in the land of Aquarius and its ambassador Uranus that—if that need isn’t met organically—it will be forced as if arbitrarily, perhaps to the point of alienating others. So much for sympathy and trust abounding. And yet within this mixture of bonding and breaking the bond lies a clue about the nature of any relationship with a strong Uranian flavor.
And what might I be referring to when I speak of a relationship with a strong Uranian flavor? One with a synastry aspect between the Moon and Uranus would constitute a rather Uranian relationship. As in I love you. Now please go away for a while so I can miss you. There is nothing inherently weird (now there’s a Uranus word) with either partner needing some Virginia Woolf room of one’s own. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always occur that both people are on the same page about the whens and for how longs of that perceived need for space. That’s when suffering occurs. If you’re in deep with someone who’s hooked into your Moon by way of Uranus (cue the raised eyebrows and giggles) you need a good sense of perspective, and a giant heap of I’m cool to take care of myself. Otherwise known as emotional maturity.
