Welcome to Sparkle Motion
The anticipation is mild to arousing. You’ve made a cuppa, opened up your favourite mag, flicked through to the horoscopes for a look at your day/week/month/season and pfft! Gemini doesn’t even sound like you, it never has. You feel like a Cancerian, someone has told you you’re on the cusp. How did they know you were only just holding things together?!
So here’s the thing . When we write Sun sign horoscopes for magazines (I used to write for Fritz magazine before they stopped printing it <sad face>) we’re writing to the masses. And we’ve usually been given 50 words; 80 if the editor likes what we do. So we simplify things down like a nice rich butterscotch sauce.
The moment we are born, all the planets are moving about as they have done since the big bang. Each and every one of us has every planet in our horoscope. And those planets rule the signs you’re so familiar with. Sometimes a planet has no friends and it sits in the horoscope all on its own, yelling at anyone who’ll listen.
To make sense of this map of the heavens we put it on a wheel and divide that wheel into 12 pieces – the 12 signs of the zodiac. Every one of us has every sign. Contrary to how you feel about one of your colleagues, no-one has missed out on a piece of the pie.
So your Sun may well be in Gemini, but your Moon (which rules Cancer) may be at the top of your horoscope yelling over and over again until someone listens. Maybe it’s in the sign of Cancer or maybe Cancer rules your Ascendant (the 1st piece of pie, or house, in your horoscope). You are going to feel Cancerian, act Cancerian and respond like a Cancerian.
BUT and this is a big BUT, you will always have your Sun in Gemini and nothing is gonna change that. And this means that you will always have the energy to be bright and informed, to communicate what you know. Mr Moon yelling in the background will just make you even more emotional and passionate about what you have to say.
So step away from cusp, either come and see an astrologer or put your birth data into one of those freebie calculators on the interwebs and check what sign your Moon and Ascendant are in. Next time you read a mag, read those signs as well. What the hell they’re only 50 words long.
