From Aries to Pisces
Ego - Outer Personality - Interior Self - The Triad of Understanding
Astrology can get complex. I personally have 3 yods. Do you even know what a yod is? Take all the planets, spin them around, thrown in major asteroids that have been out there for aeons. Don't forget the nodes and the part of fortune and then as they spin, you come up with how the spinning is affecting everyone, and also how the spinning of all the planets is affecting your natal horoscope. Man, it is one big endless reading! And that is why astrology is complex. That is also why astrology ends up being an endless, daily reading, but also why you tend to dismiss a lot of it. Its just too complex for most people's ability to consume and comprehend.
The Rising Sign -
We are talking about the ability of the conscious consumer, the average person who does not know what a "quincunx" is, to be able to appreciate astro wisdom and derive a benefit in their daily lives from that wisdom. In the 1970s I first learned about the "rising sign". It related to the hour of birth - specifically, what sign was on the eastern horizon on the hour you were born. I learned that that particular sign indicated the outer personality - or the "public self". I quickly started determining "rising signs" in my family and my self. Of course, you have to know the hour of your birth or use the standard 6AM birth time. I saw how that affected a sun sign. The self that you don, like you don your daily clothes, is that personality that you choose to greet the outer world with. What a fascinating concept I thought. But there is the sun sign, looming so large, how does it really affect things? Then I learned about the Moon Sign.
The Moon Sign -
The internal self. Psychology, of course confirms the existence of our vast internal worlds, subconscious and below conscious activity that "burbles" away inside us, affecting how we think, what we manifest in our daily lives, and influencing how we see that world of ours. Our internal emotional state is often "what we hide" when we greet and interact with the world. If you have a Moon in Pisces and have a Gemini Sun, that makes a much different individual then, say, a Moon in Virgo with a Gemini Sun. Once I would be introduced to these two individuals, I would expect the first one to be be communicative, but reflective and philosophical - a talker who when they spoke had maybe an intuitive turn with lots of empathy. The second one I would excpect to be talkative, but critical. With a Virgo Moon, a person who was volunteering their helpful advice to their loved ones, but might be a little edgy in their help. Intuition would probably not be a feature of their emotional life, or at least, it would not be as visible. This person would have a naïve internal nature, always in a kind of "head scratching" wonder about other people's lives, and wondering why things were happening to them. The Moon Sign is determined by the hour and day of your birth, but also the place on the planet - the town you were born in. That tells you where the moon was at that particular time.
The Sun Sign -
Now you can put the "Triad" together! The sun sign is the one that everyone knows. "I am a Scorpio". When people say that - they are saying - "My sun sign is Scorpio." To envision this in an easy and comprehensible image, put the sun sign in the middle, the rising sign on the outside, or around the sun sign, and the moon sign protected by the rising and the sun. Then, however you choose to envision that in your head, you can see the sun sign as the core self, around which the rising and moon work. That's why the sun sign is such a good basic handle to use in conversation and general apprehension of individual qualities. The rising and moon affect how the sun sign functions. All three of these constitute a triad of individuality.
The Triad of Self Understanding -
Unless you have a friend who knows their moon and rising sign, and chooses to reveal it to you, you are not likely to know these things for your friends and associates. You can choose to find out the triad with your loved ones. However, some do not know the hour of their births. In that case, astrologers make an assumption that a person was born at sun rise, and assign them a rising sign that is the same as the sun sign. SO, the triad is mainly useful for self understanding. As you go through your day, you can see how the rising sign, the sun sign and the moon operate in you, and show the personality that you call "Jim" or "Jane" or "Joe" or "Jolene". There is an old Scottish phrase that talks about this topic: "Oh the gift that God would gie us, to see oursilves as ithers see us." Oh the Gift that God would give us to see ourselves as others see us. Many are not aware of this dichotomy - how we see ourselves versus how others see us. Maybe this is a silent gift from the Psyche to keep us from going nuts trying to imagine how people do actually see us. And of course, this varies from individual to individual. If you grow in maturity and self understanding, you will most likely start seeing yourself in these three components and how they affect your life.
Once you determine from your mother, or your birth certificate the hour of your birth, (or we can choose the standard 6 AM birth time if unknown and most people know the place of their birth) then you can obtain from a chart these three elements. It is actually quite simple. You know your sun sign because you know your birthday. Your Moon sign you can get from a chart, and your rising sign too, from the specific or standard birth hour. For those of you who have had your chart done, often it just goes into a dusty drawer. Why? Its too complicated! Dust it off, go to someone, if you can't read it, and ask them: "Tell me my rising sign, and my moon sign." With the knowledge of these three, you can start to understand yourself in new ways. If you wish, you can do the same with your intimates and loved ones and relatives. As you do this kind of exercise, you will see how your Individuality expresses itself; and then you compare your partner's information with it.
This is the answer to why sun signs are different from one another. You hear people say: "I knew three Leos, and none of them were alike." Of course, the individual charts add the complexity of individuation, but if you want a place to start, just look at the Moon signs and the Rising Signs of those Leos. A close look at those would readily show much more distinctiveness and uniqueness and then would help explain the differences between those three Leos.
The Triad of Other Understanding Blended with Your Triad
Thrown in the Partner and You Have the 3 Key Elements plus their 3 Key Elements. Then the totality of the 3 blends with the other totality of the 3. This really consitutes the simplest way of comparing two individuals horoscopal differences without getting a super analysis of the individual charts.
The Dynamic of Your Unique Togetherness -
Your Sun, Moon and Rising and Your Partner's Sun Moon and Rising. Take all the possibilities: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces TIMES 3, and you get the potential combinations being multiplied. Then you put the Partners together and yours and your have The Dynamic of Your Unique Togetherness:
A For Instance: You can say you are a Gemini and a Sagittarius, or going deeper, your are: A Sun in Gemini, Cancer Rising and Moon in Scorpio getting along with a Sagittarius Sun, Aries Rising and Taurus Moon. That is the Dynamic of Your Togetherness. When this unique template is analyzed, you get a "drilled down" individuality blended with the Partner. This can go a long way toward really spelling out the nature of conflicts, similarities, shared values, and knotty disagreements. So these two, this Gemini and Sagittarius actually have a Scorpio Moon and a Taurean Moon. So when it comes to things of an inner nature, you look at those two difficult moons, thrown in with the high energy sun signs; and you can see why maybe when these two get together and have a "personal talk" things might get a little more testy than one might think. Then thrown in their Cancer Rising and their Aries Rising, you can see why these two might not easily get into a "close talk" because their high profile outer personalities might just slow that process down. Do you see how the Triad can shed so much light on individuals, and thus a partnership?
If you have gone to an astrologer, or had your chart done on line, And you know your:
Rising Sign (Will require knowing the hour of your birth)
Moon Sign (the geographic place of your birth)
Then you can tell me something like: Sun in Gemini, Taurus Rising, Moon in Pisces, let's say, and I will provide a short reading in the commentary section. If you have a specific question, I will give a brief answer in the commentary also.
Ego - Outer Personality - Interior Self - The Triad of Understanding - Take Yours and Combine with Your Beau of Gal.
You can double up your Triad with your partner and I will provide a comment on the 'mutuality" involved with that pairing.

A man I'm deeply interested in has Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Pisces, and Aquarius rising--please tell me more about him. Thank you!
Christofers Flow on May 16, 2016:
Sorry I am so late in responding to you Gavin
I have a Taurus sun, Capricorn Rising, and Cancer moon. I find myself to be a little too serious and sensitive and have a hard time opening up to people. Any insights?
Yes, your Taurus Sun can be very quiet almost taciturn. Cap Rising is all business and even when they are funny, it has a hard point. Cancer Moon weighs it all down with subjective worry about internal private family concerns. So, what are you do do? You must remember that every sign can be transcended, or risen above. Taurus can love pleasure and bask in the sun...a good reason to have fun. Cap looks at the world as almost silly, as compared to itself. Use Cap to allow yourself to smile at the human parade. Cancer is there to embrace family. All of these can be merry. It's really simpler than that. Everyone of these elements has a "Take yourself seriously aspect". Dont be fooled by your self important dialogue. Humor is for all of us. Work on the light hearted aspects of life. In this modern world there is a great deal to sample. All you have to do is try. Blessings.
Christofers Flow on May 13, 2016:
LESLeyiou: With Piscarian, Aquarian and Arien elements all clustered in the 12th and first houses, I would just pose that most all of your lessons are going to center around ego/soulful lessons. It is as if all of your earthly activities will pass through PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. Mars in Cancer in the 5th house is going to give you constant emotional struggle with your at home issues. Looks to me like you are destined to GROW, through adapting and conscious learning. Don't be afraid of that, just handle all of your "stuff" realizing that its all there for you to absorb, improve upon and reach higher levels of self realization as the years go by. Be happy there universe has selected you for growth!!!
lesleylou on May 06, 2016:
Such wonderful insights! I'd really appreciate it if you could give me some info/thoughts on the following:
Sun=aquarius (sun, venus in 12th house
Moon= aries (intercepted in 1st house)
mars=cancer (5th house)
I would love to hear what you think. Thank you!

I think your site is brilliant, really insightful!
I am a female with Cancer Sun, Leo rising and Sag moon. I would like to know more about me please and also the relationships with an Aries sun, Pisces rising, Leo moon and a Libra sun, Capricorn rising, Virgo moon. Thank you!
Jude on February 01, 2016:
Thanks Christofers (I only realized the 's' is supposed to be there, sorry about that). That resonates a lot. Perhaps, the reason I felt so much discontent is the fact that I got into a stable job immediately after graduating and wasn't given the chance to explore other horizons. So I keep getting a lot of "IF" thoughts--even though I know I'm super lucky to be where I am now... Also, there isn't a lot of mental stimulation going on in my work place; most would tend to be routinary, so that's a likely suspect for the discontent as well.
Anyway, I won't drag this out too long. I think I get what you're saying but I'm not exactly a hundred percent sure--yet. Still, thank you again.
Christofers Flow on January 31, 2016:
Jude: Appreciate your description and the apparent quandries you find yourself in. If you have job stability and started at a young age then you dont have any real problems. LOL. Let's pretend I can't address fulfillment, artistic desire and self expression. Here's the deal: You Gemini is ALWAys going to be seeking, seeking. You are the Divine Discontent. The way you tell of your situation...it is soooo Gemini. Praise God for your stabilizing Cap and your expression outwards to the public. Your Moon in Pisces is a double duality with your Gem. I have both of these. I would say: Let them make you a fascinating person...but dont let them carry you to distant places. Grab onto your sensible CAP. I have Taurus Rising in this same spot. Earth, practical, common sense. Be thankful for your heart and your soul. But finding "fulfillment" in the professional world is largely a myth. Be thankful for your job, stability and success. Dream like crazy, but get up every morning and put on your practical shoes. Keep up the good work. Blessings.
Jude on January 31, 2016:
Hello there Christofer.
I'm a Gemini sun, Pisces moon and Capricorn rising. Sometimes, I think, in my line of work, the Capricorn rising has always been the dominant of the three and it often leads me to feelings of 'depression' (not exactly clinical depression 'cause I only self-assessed myself) and the sense to quit my job year after year, but then again, I still stayed with the same job because, maybe, my Pisces moon is saying I'm doing a service to people and this people are young ones, making my Gemini sun happy to interact with them. Then again, I can't really express much of that when the Cap rising is often turned on--per nature of my work. It hinders me at the least. Should I pursue a different career, more on arts or music perhaps? But then again my Cap rising seems to tell me to continue with the path I have right now since I started off great and very early (at age 20, I already have a permanent, secure and stable job many are dreaming of), that it would be a waste of time switching careers, and that I can't even keep up my mind anyway with both Gemini and Pisces being mutable signs. The struggle with my job is I have difficulty finding time for myself, to be alone, to recharge my batteries somehow, to daydream even just a bit, to let out the creative juices (if there any) because I had to deal with people most of the time (not just the kids) - people that don't really listen to lighthearted chatty convos typical of a Gemini but more on the serious issues a Cap rising is best suited to deliver. There's not much space for self-expression it seems. Often too that this people, I would only see them as acquaintances with very few chances of forming tight bonds in order to let the Gemini/Pisces come out.
I'm really sorry for the burdensome details but when I came to this article and I saw how diligent you keep on answering everybody's queries, I was thinking that you could lend a hand with mine as well. So, thank you, thank you in advance.
Claire89 on January 30, 2016:
Hi Christofer. I'm Aries sun, Virgo moon and cancer rising while he is Virgo sun, Gemini Moon and Sagittarius rising. Can you give me insights?
Christofers Flow on January 25, 2016:
Dear Morgansjc: Cap is organized. They organize their careers and their lives. They have funny bones and like to laugh...mainly at others. Cap is marvelously varied but it all goes down one stream. The business of living. They can be cold hearted and always have their minds on their own business. So, they SEEM cold. They just have their minds somewhere else. Smiling they do great. But, for its business purposes.
Moon in Cancer will make you even more serious. Serious
TIMES two. This is good because Cancer cares about family which works well with Capricornian business agendas. YOU CAN BE MOODY. Oh my....then along comes Scorpio Rising which goes along with Cap Sun and Cancer Moon. Do you ever wonder why you just cant be silly and fun? All three of these elements go toward ANTI - FLUFF.
I can't suggest a change...you are too much yourself! And it is all good. If you suffer at all its from taking EVERYTHING TOO SERIOUSLY. iF YOU FEEL THE NEED ...go for comedy...develop crazy light hearted friends. Get a counselor/friend who will not take you so seriously. Somebody who naturally laughs at you when you are just overly burdened or burdening. Your astro nature, which is a great program for success will often benefit from your own conscious planning to be JOYFUL FOR NO REASON. All the best. Blessings.
morgansjc on January 24, 2016:
I'm sun in Capricorn, moon in Cancer, Scorpio rising. If you're still talking to folks, I'd love some insight. Thanks!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on December 03, 2015:
Dear Shadowself: You are a spring time person. If you had Gemini Rising along with the others, you might be "out of control"! I say that with a smile, but really your Taurus Rising helps you modify and slow down your public self. The Venus helps you shine instead of "always sparkling". But being regenerative and earthy and pleasure loving, Taurus keeps you out of spats and arguments and snippy rejoinders that tend to plague Gemini.
You can read in all kinds of places about clever, talkative, charming, ingenious Gemini, so I will supply you with potential "stumbling blocks". Dont talk too much. Dont interrupt like God made you smarter than everybody else. Ask God, since I brought him up, to forgive you for offending people without knowing you offended them. And ---- just because you can argue better than most, it doesnt make you right. Charm, blessed charm, will always give you a pass that lets you say, do and hear what you want.
Stay away from drugs. Gem feels it gets permission from on high to violate all kinds of conventions. Ironically, it is the "in control", polite, rule keeping, modest Gem who gets the Magic of GEM going! Gems go soaring so much. They never feel they can crash land. But they do.
Soar and obey all the flight rules. Dont be like Sysiphus and burn up in the Sun. I know this has sounded like too much of a warning. You can't be discouraged. Gemini has incredible potential. Gem's danger is in excess. Keep that in mind and you and Tinkerbelle will be buddies! Blessings. Your Taurus rising is your friend, except under the category of too much self indulgence!
shadowself on November 23, 2015:
Can you write a brief description about my Gemini Sun, Gemini Moon and Taurus rising Triad? I love your hubs, it's really nice to see that this article is still so popular after 3 years!
Thank you very much!
ps.: That quote about the Scorpio - Gemini relationship is fantastic! :D
Christofer French (author) from Denver on November 22, 2015:
Sag sun and Gem Rising make your core personality and outer public personality very sociable, affable and engaging. Your sometimes judgmental SAG can be made more disengaged with GEMS light heartedness.If you are wondering why you seem to be always on the edge of a battle, or dispute or disagreement, its because SAGGEMARIES seems to be made for friendly disagreement or something more serious.
A highly developed individual will be a marvelous high minded Pegasus gallantly leading some cause with Gemini shaking hands and laughing along the way and aries moon dreaming of some new revolutionary issue to bring into fruition.
I have just expressed two extremes of your reading. Truth is we as humans fall in the middle of these extremes. Sometimes your Aries insides will come out, ready to butt heads. Sometimes SAG will be highhanded and you dont know why. A good friend most times will be your GEM Rising making things all better. Since GEM is the Rising, it will tend so give a voice to a bad mood or a Sag Victory yell.
As a female, FEEL BLESSED. Sag, Gem and Aries give good support for self expression and "MAKING IT IN THIS WORLD". feel BLESSED, but stay self aware. All the best to you.
Dwinter on November 21, 2015:
Hi Christofer, I'm saggittarius sun, aries moon, gemini rising female. Can i know the detail about this three combination?Thanks=)
Christofer French (author) from Denver on November 06, 2015:
Maceface: Taking your self description, I would pose this: An old astrologer in sunny LA once told me that. "Gemini is the one sign Scorpio can't understand, or manipulate or control." Since you are bundled up in that conundrum, I would say that a number of possibilities could exist.
Your past lives themselves are filled with contradictions and the Divine has given you an opportunity to come to conscious recognition of your "parts".
That in so doing, which would be a noble aim, that your quick Gemini mind and your Scorpion self absorption could make you think you had finally arrived, when you were still not at the station. The best result for your dynamic mind is an abiding humility. I am not being overly ambitious with you. That is in fact the ultimate goal of a soul making a transcendent leap into "perfection". So, that's the big stuff. But alas, I speak too seriously.
Gemini is the best relief a Scorpio could offer; and Scorpio is the finest prescription a Gemini could get. If you are serious and not being foolhardy with yourself, you have an incredible combination of powerful intensity and a "Tinkerbelle" look at everything. First of all it means you will be a constant puzzle to your friends, and a clever deceiver at a party. You could be either a Scorpio, or a Gemini, and, well, it could be a circus. PRETENSE AND DECEPTION are gigantic potholes for you, constantly winking at yourself to allow the play to go into its next act. Therefore a genuine grip on EARNEST SINCERITY, would be an excellent recommendation.
You most certainly could have a marvelous destiny. I would advise NOT thinking about yourself too much. Remember: "A man who falls in love with himself will find no equal." You could be frivolously deep or a true great person. Or should I say, the you that you can reach for in your mind.
A warning note: Don't play with others hearts and don't try to control others hearts. Both of those are possible outcomes. The best outcome: Use your brilliant Gemini to bring others to peace and higher Scorpion levels of realization and success.
Like the "Fiddler on the Roof" (watch the musical) you can play your tune in the instability of existence. You could make this a tremendous gift!! Blessings.

Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Scorpio.. Ascendant in Gemini... I am loads of Scorpio and Gemini. Scorp Venus and Gemini Mars. Whatcha got for me??! :)
Zuri on October 10, 2015:
I guess maybe he is seeing too many women at once and I am a bit needy. I might want more than he can give.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on October 10, 2015:
Zuri: You Leo/Taurus/Gem - Fun in the sun and all about pride and pleasure and thoughtful Joy from everywhere.
Him: If Scorp REALLY loves you, then he will eventually show you. Don't demand an attestation of commitment. Your Gemini Moon will tell you if he really does. You are vulnerable because Leo loves praise. Don't listen to your EGO. Its just for show if you are advanced. Taurus isnt the best for insight, so use your Gemini Insides.
A Secret Key: His Gem Moon and Rising will combine in an excellent and masterful show to make you feel good. You have to wake up Scorp at 2AM and say: "Who the H are you really." Scorp can be wonderful, its all in reading them. Which they think is impossible. Oh, its very possible.
Zuri on October 09, 2015:
Hey Cristofer, you blessed man! I've got a new one for you, is he worth it? (you'll know what I mean in a second)
Me: Leo sun, Gem moon, Taurus rising
Him: Scorpio sun, Gem moon, Gem rising
Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 19, 2015:
Purpledaisy: Your son will be a puzzle. Happy Gem leading the team to a sensitive and intellectual self. Virgo Moon though makes him critical and because its a moon (deep interior) not know why (because Virgo is critical but also naive). So he will be confused at times even though he looks like he knows the score. Scorp Rising will give him needed intense outer confidence and a kind of magnetism. This will buttress up his Moon. The Moon will make him kind candid, nervous but naive. Gem and Scorp will give him a good outer personality.
Your daughter will be ALL CONFIDENCE. Smooth, vain, cute, carefree and not only that but full of humor and casual insults. She will be hard to hold down. Her downfall will be in realizing that she has to be sensitive every once in awhile. Actually listen to people instead of waiting for them to just stop talking. She has great potential. She needs BALLAST.
And that's why You DEAR PARENT are a worrier. Endlessly so. and when you think you have overcome your worry, it will be just beginning. Yes. You love them, but get some distance for heaven's sake. There must be a YOU in back of your love and worry. Take Yoga, get some Transcendal Meditation. Your daughter will eventually stop listening to you, and you need to get ready like any parent to navigate those waters. Your son will need some attention. Just because he is a guy doesn't mean he isn't sensitive. Don't over talk to them. But listen a lot.
Purpledaisy on August 18, 2015:
I was hoping you could tell me about my children.
My son is Sun in Gemini, Moon in Virgo with Scorpio Rising and my daughter is Sun in Leo, Moon in Gemini with Sagittarius Rising.
And just so you know, I have Sun in Cancer, Moon and Rising are both Scorpio.
Christofers Flow on July 21, 2015:
Scorp and Cap together make you one serious organized business type and achiever. You have a great resume, I am sure. If you are offbeat and told yourself you can be the next great artist, then you probably have it written down as a goal and are taking classes. Scorp gives you intense energy and Cap organizes your energy.
Be glad you have a Sag Moon. In your interior Sag has a way of making you think about justice and fairness and bit of a revolutionary at heart. The reason this should make you smile is that you are not going to be overly serious and headed in serious enterprises that will ultimately bore you. Sure you can succeed in chosen avenues of enterprise, but Sag on the inside will give your aspirations more heart. You wont appear to take yourself so seriously. But I must stop. Sag will mke you deep down more serious, but it will have religious or philosophical overtones. Which brings up my last point.
Laugh more. Your morning awakenings should start with determined and organized and lofty HUMOR. You will be doing you and your loved ones a big favor. Yes, you were put down here to labor and be important. But we are all down here to learn about grace. The grace that we offer others should also be doled out for ourselves.
Karl on July 20, 2015:
Hi Christofers! I'm a Scorpio Sun, Sagittarius Moon; Capricorn rising. I would greatly appreciate it if you could give me any insight on this combination. Thank you!
Christofers Flow on July 13, 2015:
Scorpio Sun should hope for counterbalancing elements, and you are so blessed. Taurus Rising makes the intense and sometimes dour ego a more pleasant and easy socializing person. This will help you in your younger years while you are trying to learn who you are inside. With a mellow voice and a restful style, you will definitely counterbalance that Scorp.
Libra Moon speaks of your deeper interior. Here again the influence of Venus comes in. Your Libra Moon seeks an inner balance in the face of life's storms. This constant rebalancing in your interior will truly not permit Scorpio's imagination to go wild, building up jealousies and planning big goals. Libra Moon and Taurus Rising will make "ease on down the road", as if that would be possible with a Scorpio Sun.
From the Scorp side, your Taurus Rising wont be quite so mellow and make you seem "out of it". Your Scorp will give an edge to your Libra Moon and let your interior tend to "come to strong inner decisions" and feel the import that Scorp says: "This life is serious, and I am going to approach it seriously." You should feel blessed with this wonderful counterbalancing!
Klu on July 11, 2015:
I'm a scorpio sun, libra moon, and taurus rising. I'm curious about how all three interact together! Any information would be greatly appreciated. :)
Christofer French (author) from Denver on May 04, 2015:
Christofers Flow: RE: Chelses - Pisces Sun Virgo Moon Aries Rising makes you outwardly personable and kinetic with a soul that sees so much and on the inside, naively misunderstands evils and complexities. This makes you appear to be out of touch and uncaring, when in reality you are a cosmic lookout. You are contradictory, but its OK. You will be blessed because you CARE. Your potential lovemate can be cool and peaceable but selfish with an intellectual inside. The rising makes the Taurus appear warmer and more understanding that it really is. This makes this person fun for you. They want pleasure, joy understanding and partyyyyy! That also means they are not going to go for the big understanding hug. That's OK. You are the spiritual one. Taurus/Gem combo gives a sping time, care free air with a warm and cuddly personality on the exterior. This person is great at a social. Get to know and love them but dont' expect complexity. That's OK, you are the complex one. Don't look for tons of compassion. Again. who needs compassion if you are you. I would go slowly and see if you can stand all the me me me. If you can, this can be great FUN! Blessings.
Chelses on April 30, 2015:

Sun in Pisces, moon in Virgo, Aries rising. Any insight would be great. Especially my compatibility with a sun in Taurus, moon in Gemini, Pisces rising.
Kingsley on April 22, 2015:
Thank you a lot for your comment!
Christofers Flow on April 21, 2015:
Kingsley: You will often be a puzzle to yourself. Your Gem will make you feel clever and breezy and with it. Your Moon in Pisces will give you grand breadth and depth at the same time. This is an obvious puzzle. But oh, the talent and insight and big picture it gives you. Its like having a telescope and a microscope together.
So. There's the good part of this. There's the puzzling part of this. But always know that you are capable of being both of these things. The challenge is in not being MANIC when you aer TOO Gemini and not being DEPRESSIVE, while in the deep watery intuitions.
So Cancer comes along and is emotional and kind and generous. But MOODY. Now how do you think MOODY plays along side Manic and Depressive. You see Cancer Rising, while giving you sociability will also make you take things to heart too much and get "touchy" about the way you perceive that you are being treated.
Put all those 3 together and when you are on top of your game you sound like a charmer, observe like a genius and talk like a fantastic speaker. BUT. When these 3 fire off and back fire and misfire you get a too talkative, overly self involved, touchy touchy talker. OH VEY.
You have incredible capability.....but you must watch! Balance and consciouness at all times! Blessings.
Kingsley on April 20, 2015:
Hi, I just found out I am a Gemini Sun, Pisces Moon and Cancer Rising.

Oh Kelly: Glad you are sensing the sometimes overwhelming effects of Scorpio. And OHMY. Sag Rising makes you sound happy opinionated, smarter than you are and bursting with a sense of right and wrong that only you seem to possess.
OY! Practice: Shutting up when you sense you are going too far. Practice saying: "Oh who cares what you think, anyway.....to YOURSELF.
Yes. Dont get entangled in your thoughts. YOU ARE TOO complicated. Life is so much simpler than a Scorpio wants to make it, and you are doubly BLESSED.
Dont get me wrong. You have wonderful intuitions, strengths and powers. But you already know that.
Take Yoga. Practice TM. Think of yourself as being anover strong, intense and full of certainty BEING. But then, try to keep it a secret. Trying to keep all this a secret will make you feel even stronger.
Mind you ONCE you feel this sense of control of self you will ace social encounters and business meetings. Friends will gather and you will be a success.
Watch the Sag Rising though. What you accidentally say in an all knowing and "offensive" way, can you screw up the best of encounters.
Feel strong. Be strong. Become fully conscious. Blessings and good fortune.
Kelly on April 16, 2015:
Hi! Love this!
I am a Scorpio sun, Scorpio moon, and sagitarious rising.
Sometimes I feel too complicated and entangled in my thoughts. Any comments would be greatly appreciated thank u!
ChristofersFlow on March 16, 2015:
Jessica: You are blessed with a Sun that will tend to encourage your Moon. Your Aqua Moon will tend to make you feel knowing and certain, but not know why. This can make you bedevilled or happily placed in our confusnig world. Both AIR, Gem and Aqua will give you a kind of dispassionate sense of yourself and the around. You will be an easy communicator and full of onrushing energy and ideas and clever double entendres. The inner moon will give you a sense that you are even cleverer than you are but that's OK; we need a sense of securityand certainty to plow through daily life.
Your Cancer Rising is a real help to your social wanderings. It warms up Gemini and makes you more emotional and conventional. Matters little whether you really are that sweet. It only matters that you feel equipped to get through that party or social setting. Cancer RIsing gives you a facility for the awkwardness that you can often feel with Aqua Moon and the overtalking of Gemini. Be grateful. Let your Cancer come out. It is there to help you.
Warning: Gem's sometimes excesses, Aqua's stubborn sense of certainty about the strangest times and topics and Cancers Moods can destabilize your whole being, or at least your weekend. Try to be conscious about the road your inclinations are taking you on. SELF Correcting is never bad advice. Remember, you can alwasy stop talking and take a breath and start over in a couple minutes. Blessings to you. Enjoy the trip.
Jessica on March 15, 2015:
Hi--really late to the party but not too late, I hope!
Me: Gemini sun, moon in Aquarius, and Cancer rising. Any comments greatly appreciated!
Christofers Flow on February 27, 2015:
Jen: Aries Sun gives you all out opinion, energy and a great sense of self. Virgo Moon gives you an internal critic and a soulful naivete. Put together that with Aries who is often moving so fast and hard that they don't see all the players and you have a kind of bursting openness and naivete. BUT ALSO: A sense that you are better than other people. Gem Rising enhances your Aries personality and allows you to look a tad more diplomatic than you really are. It also disguises your judgmental Virgo lurking behind the curtains. Your kind but naive Virgo will only be seen by others if you choose to disclose it. And this is good because it differs substantially from Aries and Gemini. Consider that a benefit. You can take your own counsel. Consider things longer and come to your innocent and candid opinions in the comfort of your Soul.
WARNING: There is a wonderment hits the fan aspect to your combo. Aries fights too much just for fun. Gemini talks too much just as a relief valve and Virgo criticizes too much just to BE ITSELF. Take a bad day and put all those together at once and you have a cluster of bad energy emanating forth. To control yourself. Meditate. Be conscious and just before you go to bed each night say: "I know I am right all the time, but I don't have to prove it every time." Blessings on your energetic soul.
Looney bin on February 26, 2015:
Good morning Mr. Flow!
I am desperate for advice. Going through a divorce. I am a cancer sun Taurus rising and Taurus moon. He is Scorpio sun Leo rising and cancer moon. We have been married 15 years. My husband has a pronounced anger problem and I am done. My question is more about my future... I'm scared to death about doing it in my own!! Buying a house, raising 2 teenaged girls, working full time etc. not to mention the forecast calling for a lot of emotional pain, as we are only in the beginning.... Please, any advice or insight?
Jen on February 17, 2015:
I am an Aries Sun, Virgo Moon, and Gemini rising. Id love to know what that means for me.

Toni: You are a hard one, but can give the appearance that you are not. He is a softer one than you, but oh, never call Cancer soft. It's just that it doesn't take such a rigid approach as a Cap. The challenge with you two is in retreating to your serious moons and not letting each other in. The Libra Rising helps on both sides. You both give a smiling sunny and peaceful exterior. However that can act as a disguise. This is a true puzzle for both of you if you think about it. But outwardly this is not going to reveal itself very easily. So your similar Moons and Rising are going to be like a "locked in, quiet and pleasant peacefulness that discloses little but hides a lot."
Sorry if that sounds confusing, but you two will have to let the air blow through your "interiality" which is a word I just made up. So, down to Cap and Can. It's good that you are the woman (assuming) because a man with a Cap and a woman with a Can would emphasize oppositional gender theatrics. Its better for getting a long that the woman be the Cap and the man the Can, and so that's what it is, and that's good.
Let him have his emotions and let them manifest themselves freely. He is going to need emotional release, especially if the square angle way of dealing that the Cap has gets a little to hard to bear. YOU ARE GOING TO THINK YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT FOR YOUR WHOLE LIFE. Depends upon your entire chart of course, but you look like one well organized, strong, loaded with secrets outwardly pleasant chic that can "run IBM from a phone booth" to use a phrase that is now anachronistic since IBMs and phone booths are from the 20th not the 21st Century. Anyway, you are formidable. Perhaps though, he is more balanced and more complete and VERY GOOD for you (if he loves you truly). You are going to need understanding and cuddling, and he can give that. Since his emotional needs might be more "male", he might not absolutely require a "cuddle". But be sure he needs them.
Warning and Secret: He will suffer privately longer without your coming forward with help. You will be impatient with him more than you should. The Warning is that you are both set up for HIDDEN secrets that your Libra Risings wont readily acknowledge. You two could run a great business together. The romance will require deliberate surrendering of pride on both your parts. Good Luck and Blessings!

I am a Capricorn Sun, Scorpio Moon, Libra Rising
He is a Cancer Sun, Scorpio Moon, Libra Rising
Christofer French (author) from Denver on February 09, 2015:
The Gemini Sun's Gift to this combination is that its intellectual and information loaded way of operating allows the intense outer personality and the deeply subconscious rich interior to have their way without DOMINATING. A Pisces Moon can be a burden. Too spiritual, too intuitive and too sensitive for regular life. But Gemini puts that in perspective because it is so egalitarian in its way of measuring and understanding that it allows without being overwhelmed. Scorp and Pisces can play large roles without dominating and burdening the Self's Daily Act. This is a WONDERFUL combination when viewed that way.
However, Gemini can get frazzled and lose its way in exhaustive life style choices. When that happens Scorp can manifest in a testy irritable suspicion and Pisces can bring on heavy moods. As always one must warn against fatigue, self absorption, and a lack of full consciousness. When viewed in a negative context you have a talkative gadabout trying to start a fight with a moody half drunk demeanor. I say that in a "cartoon" fashion, but you see the point I am trying to make. With your powerful and inventive aspects, these three will always be able to help you in and out of your challenges.
The best of Gemini tells you to keep your head up and your senses clear. The best of Scorpio tells you that sure enough, everything is not ALWAYS about you, but it does involve you. The best of Pisces tells you to intuit and surround your loved ones with compassion without weeping too much for them. Blessings and stay conscious.

I was wondering about this combination: Gemini sun, Scorpio rising and Pisces moon
Christofer French (author) from Denver on February 03, 2015:
Scooby: She will be great for you. I mean, you will like and appreciate her. A warm and caring Cancer but sparkling with wit and charm in the public personality and a soul that is religious and compassionate. This is a wonderful elixir for your more quite and more earthy and airy characteristics. Not knowing you or her, I would pose that she would like your calm reliable sincere ways. She doesn't need someone like her. Too much noise and competition. So, I can see her liking your manner and your demeanor. I can see you "coming alive" in the wake of her "showing up" at a party or other occasion. Cancer is the "heavy" aspect here, but Gem and Sag both lighten and invigorate the person. She could be a match. I have to watch my enthusiasm, but just between you and me and anybody else who reads this. ...... this could work. Blessings.
Scooby on February 03, 2015:
Thank you Christofer, that is quite thought provoking. I am quite shy, so I guess my Libra is submerged. I'm dating an older woman who has sun in cancer, gemini rising and moon in Sagittarius. How do you see this mix interacting please?
Christofer French (author) from Denver on February 02, 2015:
Scooby: Air and Earth. That's better for a male than a female. You can be considered smart, exacting, organized, balanced and cool with a soul that is always kind of irritated with the rest of humanity.
But you will put up with us all because you love the peace and beauty of earthly beauty and you love directing people projects and things in the way that they should go: YOUR WAY.
If you keep your critical moon with its attendant naivete to YOURSELF, you will get along alot better. Your Cap Rising seems to make you feel you are the Captain or at least the Navigator of social settings and cool outings. Your Libra loves to smile at it all. Lots of Libras are not as equipped with all of that practicality (Cap and Virgo), so other Libras are a little more silly, cute and smiling. You however have been given an EGO that envisions better things for the around and can push your agenda with strength. Lazy Libra loves to have OTHERS do things, so you have the talent to get others working for you.
I always add warnings for these readings. Libra can be shallow and vain. Capricorn can be bossy, make fun and generally bowl over the small and weak and polite. Virgo just can't make sense out of this fleshly world. If you ever put all of these negatives together at one time, you can offend and make enemies, BUT being a Libra you will catch yourself and elevate your consciousness for others, if not yourself. Consider yourself Blessed.
Scooby on February 01, 2015:
Male with Libra sun, Capricorn rising and Virgo moon. Thanks for your insight.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on January 29, 2015:
Your Rising Sign affects your PUBLIC PERSONALITY as contrasted with your CORE EGO. I would ask myself, what "do I do when I am socializing that differs from my basic self?"
May on January 28, 2015:
Srry I wasn't done!
It ended up sending by itself, my phone was freezing on me :(
As I was saying! :D
I do think I have a great combination!
NOt to be concided hehe
Last time I asked my friend to read the rising sign description and she said I fit cancer, but I think it was because I let her in my comfort zone :)She's a Sun and moon in Aries!
At first my mom said I was born at 3 that would be aries rising, but I don't fit, then at 4 is Taurus but I don't fit it either, I do show my moon in cancer when I see children animals or my mom or sis are sick.
But I'll check if maybe I am a Gemini rising .
I also thought since im attracted to libras I would be an aries rising but I like scorpio's too
I'm already getting of subject hehe
Im really happy you replied! I was checking since yesterday if you had replied! Today I had a feeling I had to check hehe
May on January 28, 2015:
Yes I agree with you! :)
I really don't mind showing how I am to people I meet , to me is important that I don't mask how I am and to show my cheerful side, and the reason I think that they feel I'm flirty is because I'm interested in them as in the way they talk, the things they like, both sexes. Even my family say that I'm to flirty but don't see it that way I think when you talk to someone you should be open and listen attentively because is the right thing to do, maybe is my face.
Yes I think so too, I act very different with older people, my mom was a big influence in my life and showed me to respect elders, and my family and my home is were I feel at peace and im very sentimental and cry easily, I do try to go deep within myself, I feel that if Instead of ignoring pain I should go through it to grow and feel stronger, for me my mother and sister and my dog are the ones that help me move on through life and to realize so many things. I really do go through mood swings but my personality doesn't let me mope around and I rather feel the pain then do something about it! But not alot of people agree about feeling out the pain in order to move on and I can't help feelg bad for them but I don't want to judge them either
Christofer French (author) from Denver on January 28, 2015:
May: Traditional astrologers, when the rising sign is not known, assign the sun sign as the Rising Sign. So for the sake of ease, let's assume you have a Gemini Rising. The way people describe you sounds very much like a Gemini in general. When you say "you hate when they ask about your private life" -- that is your Cancer Moon. Your Moon, which is your Interior, the Soul, the subconscious, is a great place for Cancer because Cancer is oceanic, tidal, awash in feelings, caring about home and basics and ready to let its mood OUT. All of those things HELP the Gemini because Gemini can be too flirty, too surfacy, too empty headed looking. "They just want to have fun", oh yeah, they want to have fun. Well, Gemini is often misunderstood, and they PUT ON a mirth and jovial style because they can change mental points of view so quickly and are almost always SMARTER THAN THEY APPEAR. Funny thing is they don't mind coming off in all of those typically Gemini ways because their STYLE is their DISGUISE. Think about that. I think you will agree.
Now your Moon in Cancer helps you reach deep and be in touch with your Emotions, like Gemini is often accused of not being. You will be more maternal/paternal than the normal Gemini. You will get your feelings hurt more than the regular Gemini. You have to look at yourself as a fascinating package. Go ahead and let the world feel they have you all "figured out"; you go ahead and discover the breadth AND the depth of your complete self. With your Cancer Moon, you could lose confidence at times. That's where your double Gemini helps you out. Geminis get up each day with a new feeling. More than any other sign they can appear to bounce right back...and sometimes that's all you need. Always be reaching for a new level of consciousness about yourself and others. Never get stuck. Gemini does not get stuck. Enjoy! Be blessed. Your Moon in Cancer is there to care for your Soul.
May on January 27, 2015:
I'm a sun in Gemini and moon in cancer, unfortunately I don't know my rising sign, I know how to get it but I don't have the a time cause neither of my parents remember the time I was born, is there a way for me to find out what is my rising sign?
OR maybe you could guess?
And also could you describe my sun and moon? :)
Oh I sometimes ask alot of ppl I meet to describe the first impression of me, and they usually say I'm very quiet, or sometimes that I look and act very innocent, that I'm well mannered, very nice, polite, some say that im to flirty haha and that im dumb looking, but I feel on the inside that I'm awkard xD I try to avoid to get to deep with people I barely meet and I hate when they ask about my private life , also were I work one of my managers would get irritated because I was smiling to much or to happy xC lol I hope you could help me out :) thank you !
Christofer French (author) from Denver on January 27, 2015:
Jamie: Your Moon elevates your Gemini Spirit. Sag gives a loftiness to the Soul. Gemini can lose its mojo when too exhausted. Sag Moon makes you less likely to lick your wounds and mope and enlist the Spirit of Pegasus. A tendency toward self righteousness aside, the Sag Moon will keep you buttressed.
Taurus Rising is GREAT for Gemini, because again, Gem can get "played out" and "unstrung" when it exhausts itself on its metaphorical high mileage escapades. Taurus Rising gives you outer personality a steadiness and calm that Gemini NEEDS to portray. Gemini tends to always think its "doing well" because of its boundless hopefulness and high mobility of mood and thought. BUT, Gemini can get at loose ends. This is where your Taurus rising, with its strong work ethic and sweetness of spirit can distract others away from your "other identity". This is very good. Taurus Rising in another sun sign could just be a kind of boring calm, but for you, its just what the Heaven's ordered.
When the negative times arise, they will come from Gemini's over reaching expension of energy, Taurus's laconic and somewhat indifferent manner, and Sagitarrian's self generated "religious" insights about their life. So, at certain times, you can end up a frazzled, indifferent, soul with too high an opinion of itself. But of course, Gemini's super secret is that the twins personify the arising of human consciousness from and with the Divine. Gemini has to be very hungover to not understand that a CHANGE OF CONSCIOUSNESS is what is in order. We are on this earth to learn how to control our impulses and attain higher levels of consciousness, so there you are -- a beautiful combination of elements that will leave you higher and happier than you were in past lives. Blessings.
Jamie on January 26, 2015:
I'd love your insight - I'm a Gemini Sun/Taurus Rising/Sagittarius Moon.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on December 19, 2014:
Dear "I'm Choking..." Well your Aries benefits by having Mars in Cap. That is strong FOLLOW THROUGH. Where Aries is a great starter, but not a great finisher. So be strong, Luke. Cancer Rising makes you mopey but emotional which softens Aries, but makes you a bit edgy. Moon in Scorpio makes you "choke emotionally" and too too much serious. Though Aries can benefit from Scorpion inner soulfulness. Pluto in Scorpio, everyone in your generation has. Try to live with it. You can be happy that your fire has emotional water twice.
Since Aries is pretty self centered, you can dip into the emotional pity bank too often. Develop a high minded consciousness if you can work on one. You need some airy clarity. You will do well as long as you don't self consume. All the best. Blessings.
I'm choking emotionally on December 18, 2014:
Christofer French (author) from Denver on November 09, 2014:
Ann19: You are a caring worrying loving Aries. Not exactly what one would expect of an Aries. Though be assured this is wonderful for you Aries. They are usuually "me first" and "enough about me lets talk about me". They are full of drive and energy and the "can do" spirit. You can read all about Aries, but its the nuances that the others bring that is wonderful. Virgo Moon makes you inwardly naive, caring and critical. These things truly moderate Aries. Your Cancer Rising makes you whine a little, but also care alot.
Drawback Possibility: Aries Energy combines with Cancer Rising complaining and Virgo Moon pickiness. When these things all come together they can be really annoying for your loved ones, and hard to downshift from after all three of them turn into a Tornado. Since Aries is NEVER wrong and Cancer's Intuition convinces itself over and over agaain of its rightness and Virgo picks away, this could be the worst of it.
However, if you let your Aries stay in a moderate loving state and you allow your Cancerian worry to turn to quiet love, and your Virgo Moon become the idyllic Virgin and not the naive wonderer, you can combine all of these elements in a great female symphony. Blessings upon you and stay conscious. Consciousness with these strong elements is the BIG factor. Secret for Aries: Stop thinking about yourself so much of the time. That's how your Cancer and Virgo can help you.
Ann19 on November 05, 2014:
Any insights with my combination?

Thanks in advance
Christofer French (author) from Denver on October 25, 2014:
FreedomGoddess: From reading the above I can tell that you are on a "special path". Do you know that your Scorp Rising is giving you this "broad sense of self". Other aspects in your horoscope may also indicate this, but we are necessarily ONLY dealing with the Triad.
To shorten the phraseology, your Gemini gives you the ascending soaring desire to embrace the around. Your Scorp wants to declare it in numbers and agelessness and all of the ways you say: "Hey, I am special and this is me!" Your Moon in Pisces connects you to the subconscious and deep Neptunian vastness. It also animates your dreams and spacey grasp of the BIG AROUND.
I would say that you can hardly escape yourself. Since you brought up career and your youth, let me give you some practical advice. Since you are always "in flight", you need to plant your feet on some solid ground. Geminis Maryln Monroe and Judy Garland were marvelous Geminis, but their feet never quite touched the ground. Its easy to get lost on your "floating angelic self" and forget that you need to pay bills, rent, buy clothes and have a real resume that goes somewhere.
Bob Hope, Dean Martin, John F. Kennedy and Paul McCartney are also Geminis. They were also millionnaires. I am not saying you should get into show business or politics. I am saying that Geminis can be REAL strong career based personalities. IF THEY HAVE THEIR FEET ON THE GROUND. Go ahead and be your merry delightful self, but ALSO do some testing. Find out what your core talents are, your skills, find out what your TRIAD comes up with -- all three of them when you ask yourself WHAT WOULD I LIKE TO DO.
Your letter says you want to "improve yourself". Follow that bidding. I always give WARNINGS, so here they are: Gemini can be so flighty and soaring that they give an image of unreliability. Find work that allows your Gemini to be, but also keeps your Gemini grounded. Your Scorp Rising is marvelous. It should help you in your working life, but don't get caught up with the constant expression of Self to the point of tedium and self absorption. Pisces in the Moon is also a spiritual resource that you will have all your life, but don't drift off into places of imagination that do not help your daily life. Also, with this TRIAD, stay healthy physically and stay away from debilitating physical behavior. You can feel airborne and soar, but think of airplanes and rockets and how much science and hardware it takes to get off the ground. Advice: Try meditation to calm yourself. Blessings.
FreedomGoddess from Miami, Florida on October 25, 2014:
Hi Christofers! Thank you so much for being of service to everyone on this thread. I am 26, have been studying astrology since I was 10 years of old and since last spring, I started to live an ageless life so, forever in my mind I am 25 and when other's ask my age, I tell them ageless. They really want to know, but I love it because it gives me the power for others to like me for me without judgement because no judgement = love HA! Anyway, I really enjoy the synchronicity of the universe, making no plans-unless i'm getting a great paid gig at 10am I will be there!.. but besides that, i do not live a life my time as much as possible and when i am directed to look at my phone, the oven, my computer, A LOT of time i see 2:22, 3:33, 5:43, 1:11 and even on receipts from stores, etc reducing down to 1's . I really get high off of living a Go With The Flow Life. I love the energy and meeting others organically. It's so beautiful. Anyway, I have always been the type to always be wanting to improve myself, i love to learn, love to help others, there's really so much about be i could go on and go on, but I just want to tell you that I am at a really great place, have come such a long way and i am going to keep moving forward. I am very aware of my sun sign and my rising sign, once i found out there was a rising sign and that it is just as important, i went aha! That totally makes sense and it allowed me to accept this of myself quickly and move forward. Moon sign, I am still learning and it is very deep, but I still want to know more, but my biggest service i would love from you, is anything and everything you want to tell me so i can use my triad for my/our GREATEST good ! I feel and know i have very strong powers, enjoy being in tune with the universe and I know the universe always has my back, but i do not feel a connection with money and i know i have a lot of different things i'm amazing at, but not just one thing where i would actually do as a career. It's ok, i feel like i will do many things in my life, constantly evolving and helping others where i see they need help.

Christofer French (author) from Denver on October 18, 2014:
Dear Mark Lens: You are way more serious than most Geminis. This is a blessing. Gem's drawbacks CAN be too frivolous, shallow, flippant and arbitrary. Scorp Rising makes you quieter and more serious, giving an ample level of gravitas, but still benefitting from your Gemini Sun at social settings. The Rising is the "public" side of you. At certain times Scorp would not be apparently very helpful, because you can seem overly preoccupied with your own thoughts and issues. But at the social level you can be a real winner if your Scorp lets you Gem shine and your Gem does not soar unnecessarily over Scorps seriousness.
Your Capricorn Moon works with you Scorp rising to make you even more serious and self preoccupied. Caps think they are smarter and wiser than everybody and in your interior you probably do. That's not so bad though for you because Gem gives the other point of view. Gem can be so lighthearted and self deprecating that they can appear to NOT care about so many things. (Yet in fact, they really do CARE much more than they sometimes appear to).
As you can see the Divine has given you a wonderful pot pourri of starry insights. The whole goal for you is not to settle too much in anyone of these aspects, but throiugh uplifting consciousness ALWAYS be aware that you contain MUCH MORE than your present mood, which can always change if you direct it.
Be happy that you have these challenges. As a warning: Your Scorp can sometimes drown you in self important gravity. Your Cap can make you feel so much better and smarter than you actually are. Your Gem can make you oh so flighty. But stop. Enjoy the mastery you can gain in skillfully BEING yourself. Because your soul is a combination of all of these. Be happy. Be in control. But smile all the while. Blessings.

Hi, I'm 25. Gemini Sun, Scorpio Rising, Capricorn Moon.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on September 25, 2014:
Pam: Taurus/Leo/Aries and Husband: Gemini/Taurus/Aqua.
The Aries Moon stirs in you, neath that calm bovine ego. Leo adds lots and lots of personality in social occasions, but you often have to put a lid on your Aries Moon's emanations. You are steady and strong. Hubby is Airy Airy and fun to be with. Pleasant, charming and secretly superior feeling. He often can seem quite stubborn on the inside to you. Its not your problem unless he gets loud and noisy with his stubbornness. Which of course with his Gemini, he could. But the Air makes him quite easy to deal with. Quite advisable to not take that seriously. After all its just Aqua giving too much confidence about what often is not well thought out. With your Taurus, you are the one who must be patient with his AIR. But Taurus has to be patient with the rest of us anyway. Keep smiling and do your best to put up with a capricious and whimsical, talkative quality. He is fun AND a little impossible. You are ALSO fun, but more steady. You are strong on PRIDE and SELF. But one must be, mustn't one? He will probably be OK with that because all that Air is probably OK with smiling confidence and self assertion. He will tolerate more than you are tolerant, but he is often off the reservation. Just invite him back in, if you love him. I do not mean unfaithful, I just mean a little "wacky".
With your strong sense of self you can observe his playfulness and charm. I am sure he finds you strong. I don't think you threaten him. Be blessed.

Nata on September 13, 2014:
You are right it has to do with my age. I'm 21! :)
Thank you for your advice!!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on September 11, 2014:
Nata: I will take a nonastro approach here. How old are you? In youth we tend to experience extremes of emotions. Also in youth bi polar tendencies tend to emerge. I am not suggesting this, as much as I am saying that your age may be a reason. In addition, your diet, sleep patterns, stress and personal relationships can all play a part in emotional extremes. The fact that you are outlining your problem in this way, shows that your consciousness is declaring that you have the will to handle this. Use your triad in this conscious control, but pay attention to all of these other factors. There is a thing called "cognitive therapy". I would read up on this to add help. All the best!
Nata on September 10, 2014:
Thank you very much for your reply!!
I have a few more questions. Is it normal of my trial to be at the extreme when it comes to happiness and sadness. Overall, I am very happy and smiley and in a way or another I inspire others. But when I get the blues they are the lowest. And when I'm happy, I am very happy especially if there are people around because they energize me.
What else is there to know about my triad? and what books would you recommend for self help?
Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 22, 2014:
Your Scorp Rising means your Aries public personality will take on a more cloaked and suspicious outlook. For the Aries which lets it all hang out, this can be an advantage. Scorpio is in the time of the year when the harvested crops have been sold. In the cold autumn the compelling theme is store, save, keep track of and watch your back (thus a military, protective, detective mindset). Thus the symbol of the Scorpion. This is a feature of human consciousness, and everybody has it somewhere.
Your rising sign means that in your social interactions you will not tend to "immediately disclose" your agenda. As I said you can benefit from this. On the negative side, you can upon first meeting people actually LOOK like you are hiding something and have "something on your mind". Scorp sometimes gets lost in "how its coming across". If Scorp loosened up a little they would see that there is very little on other peoples minds, even though they are sure life is much more mysterious. But still, its always good to get more data than you had before. Thus Scorp feels "armed" and "prepped" this way.
Dave on August 21, 2014:
Thanks for that!
Sort of makes sense, I think. I do like peace and quiet , but on the other hand I do like to be on the go, doing adventurous things. If that makes sense. And I suppose I do need a sense of purpose as I sometimes feel unsatisfied! One other question what do you mean by Scorpio can get lost on its own military mind?

Dave: Aries/Scorp/Libra - Aries characteristics are well known. Full of initiative, fire and energy. "Me First" is their inner insistence, but they are GREAT starters, not so good finishers. Libra Moon stands out for me. That's because it also is full of initiative, but it offsets Aries with balance, a need for beauty and peace and a calmness that really helps Aries. Having this in your Moon gives you a nice feeling of completeness at the end of the day, even if your Aries has run you ragged, and your intense and complicated Scorp rising has impressed others in the wake of the Aries movement.
If I were you, I would seek out times of rest, relaxation, and even an inner goal of EQUIPOISE, on a continual basis. Libra often has some drawbacks with its sense of "never being quite balanced", but in your case, I would say you should seek out Libra's peace in general for your psychic rest. Your Aries/Scorp combo is going to give you success and a sense of victory and conquest ALL the Time. So, this Moon in Libra is your gift from your past lives. It shows you have an inner place of true peace that you have had back when, but now you have been given a new "Agenda" with this incarnation. That should give you hope and an overall sense of purpose. Often times Aries can get so frazzled and manic that they can forget their vibes can get just out of control.
I think you should feel, ready for success, Dave. Aries to power you, Scorp to impress the world with, n0t make you look as shallow as you otherwise might, and Libra with its tuning fork always giving you a sense of real completeness.
WARNING: Aries can get out of control and truly egocentric. Scorp can get lost on its own military mind. Libra can get all frazzled if too tired. Avoid these and you should be quite a package. Blessings.

Sun sign Aries, Moon in Libra, and Scorpio rising?
Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 03, 2014:
Lem: Gem Sun/Pisces Moon makes you a charming wistful sensitive smart, quick to the draw and never too harmful person. When you are tired or ultra sad or just recently suffering defeat you can sink, crash, or slowly descend into too much pity, too much mental confusion and a despondency that you must seize and deal consciously with.
When you are victorious and feeling comfy, you are the nicest one at the party, the kindest touch and the softest approach. Hardly anyone is better at SOCIALIZING. But, the great weakness is a kind of nervous self involved neurosis. You can feel it easily when you think of those times when you feel lost or beat up.
Now the Scorpio Rising gives you more gravitas. It won't prevent you from being overly self concerned (It actually tends toward narcissism), but you have a quieter bearing, a more thoughtful look and an intensity that kind of hides your Gemini and makes your Pisces Moon more profound and hermit like.
I am good at guessing people at parties. One woman 30 years ago totally stumped me. I guessed all 11 signs and I was wrong! Finally I said: "You're not a Gemini?!!!!" She said "Yup". She had a Scorpio Rising I later found out. It totally quieted the Gemini down and made her very interior, thoughtful and silent. I was so intrigued by her that I got into her horoscope. We have been married now for over 30 years. But the first time I met her, I met her Scorpio and not her Gemini. So in answer to your general question: You can be a mystery. Just don't be a mystery to yourself! Blessings.

Hello, I am a gemini sun, pisces moon , and scorpio ascendant. ..I feel complicated ...Can you break this down for me?
Christofer French (author) from Denver on August 01, 2014:
You will feel like this when you are 65. My point is that there is not ONE decision out there to make about career or relationships or religion. People like you need to think about security and practicality. Those two issues will guide you. I would say "Don't quit your job until you have a new one". I am much like you. However I started as a minister and had 4 kids by the time I was 30. I am not recommending that. These days young people are tuned into their freedom and eschew kids and life long martial agreements.
As you can see, I am not counseling you on how to be happy with your triad, rather to seek a balast in your life, then let you triad have its full sway. Be three things in your head if you have to be. WARNING: If you use you "bag of confusion" as an excuse to have a dissolute fantasy filled life, each decade will bring more confusion. Get your feet in boots of practicality and then wear any old hat your heart declares. My triad is very nearly like yours, and I speak from experience. Blessings.
Nata on August 01, 2014:
I hope you have the time to get back to me.
I have two questions: Recently I've been feeling as if I have multiple distinct desires. Like having a few people that want different things at the same time. I just graduated from college. I thought I was going to pursue a traditional career but it was boring and steady (same place). I recently discovered that I have a strong desire to travel and meet other people. I don't want any kind of heavy responsibility that would tie me to the system (no credit cards or kids). I also have a strong curiosity for religion and the mind, even though I'm plain spiritual almost atheist a weird combination. I've thought of maybe becoming a scientist and study religion but I'm still doubting and it is very annoying. As I learn more about my triad I found that all three are a pure contradiction of one another and it is starting to affect me as I gain more control of my destiny. However, I'm afraid that I might also be misinterpreting my triad combination given that I'm not an expert on this topic. The other question is concerning relationships. I've never been in one. Sometimes I spend an entire day fantasizing about one but when the reality comes that I have to commit to one I panic and discover that that's not exactly what I wanted. I've discovered that relationships are healthy to have in my head as a fantasy but as soon as they have the potential to be a reality I panic. I've thought that I have pisces in my fantasy world and the sag and gemini come into play when someone is trying to tie me down. I'm a bag of confusion just like any other human being.
Your input would be very appreciated!
Thank you!! :)

Laura: The Spring Combination I am referring to is the fact that Pisces and Aries and Taurus are all next to each other. It's interesting only if you think about it. What I thought was that you had a lot of Spring time energy. Nothing profound, just obvious.
Pisces Rising helps you in the public domain. It softens what could be an overly aggressive Aries style. It is a great benefit actually. There is a wisdom and intuition that emanates.
If "materialism" does not ring true, there are other aspects of Taurus. Love of Leisure, peaceful and scrumptuous enjoyment of life. They don't "fly off the handle" like Aries does, which is also a benefit to you. Taurus is a good money manager and seeks security. Again, these can be helpful, especially with Pisces, which can be whimsical with money, and Aries which can be too hard edged.
A Scorp/Cap/Aqua guy is going to be intense, authoritative, probably bossy and a kind of "know it all". That can be good if you like it. It can wear on a partner. You are probably going to have to adapt to HIM, instead of the other way around. He looks like he could be good in business and a provider. Scorp Venus means the intensity will go over into romance too. You have to love this guy. If you do, great. If you don't, he is probably not even going to pretend to change for you. Blessings.
The fire-earth-water progression is good, especially in that order A STRONG EGO, practicalized and conservatized and a quiet soul. I like the order and the way it unfolds. Blessings.
Laura on July 12, 2014:
Hi Christofer! thanks very much for answering. 'll bug you a litte more Im afraid. What means this spring-time combination? or this season's lessons you mention? can I look for it on the internet?
I feel like im triyng to cope with not being just Aries. I'm currently gettin' used to my pisces rising but it has slowed me respect some of my initial goals, I think. It worries me but I believe is (i'm) right.
And Taurus, well, im not confortable with its materalistic ways wich I don't feel related to at all (... the sugestion that i'll marry for money has offended me greatly, i think), can this be a conflict with my more spiritual pisces? the fire -earth-water progression in my triad, does it mean something? also i made a mistake with my guy triad, he is; Scorp-Capri-Aqua + Scorp venus
Christofer French (author) from Denver on July 10, 2014:
Chad: Actually what you are calling "opposing" signs actually tend to balance out the individual. There are things called "trines" and "squares" too. The theory is that angles that are 30 or 60 are beneficent to the planet involved. Squares and Oppositions tend to "create more energy" as my mother used to say. In other words, in manifesting opposing energy more challenges arise...like weight training. Weights are all about "resistance". So with squares and oppositions you tend to get more "chances to grow" and experience more frustration, but often these things are the best for us. Sextiles and Trines tend to make things easier or stronger. There you go.
Chad on July 09, 2014:
What are your thoughts on having opposing signs? Is that by itself an omen?
Like I am a Capricorn sun, Cancer rising, Aquarius moon.
My Mars and Venus are in fire signs.
A lot of my friends had the same: a Cancer Sun/ Cap Asc, Pisces Sun/ Virgo Asc, and a Gemini Sun/ Sag Asc. (those are all opposing, right?).
But I moved for school and only hang out with my boyfriend (Scorpio) and his friends: all mid to late 40s gay guys. I know I should have made friends in grad school by now, but no.
I did really terrible academically in my first year, and need to get a job now. But lazy summers are amazing. I feel really guilty but I haven't even applied anywhere yet :S
I know that I need to get stuff together if I am going to be going to be in school in September (take out a Sallie Mae). If that doesn't work out for me, I am planning to go back to my parents' place and pay off the debt.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on July 08, 2014:
Laura: Pisces Rising gives you your outer temperament. Aries Sun and Taurua Moon are a spring time combination. If you look at it, your Pisces Rising closes the 12th, so all three of these follow each other in the zodiac. This means you have early spring late winter lessons. Your doubts about scorp may be well held. Your Pisces water suspects Scorp's intent, but is drawn to the water. Think of your Taurus Moon as a conservatising way of keeping a lid on your Aries bold behavior. Taurus Moon is blessed by Aries high achievement, but also its a check on excessive strain and too much ambition. Your guy seems OK. Capricorn Sun means he probably has a good job. Aqua Rising makes him a social bug and scorp adds a warning. Not too bad though. You are strong and sensitive. A nice combination. Blessings.
Laura on July 07, 2014:
Well, Im not good at english (i can read it much better than i can redact n it though) but im very curious about the intereaction of my signs. So i will really apreciate your guide on some of my natal chart aspects.
I have pisces rising, (many problems with mi dad) Aries sun and taurus moon. I have problems reading the descritions of this last one, i feel embarrased by my moon's materialistic predisposition ("sweet tooth" or "marry for money " despictions makes me cringe), mostly because i also find myself with a taurean venus.
Im currently datin' a guy with scorpio rising, capricorn sun, aquarius rising and scorpio venus, and i like him a lot, but his scorpios makes me doubt...
Christofer French (author) from Denver on June 24, 2014:
Abby: You may have perfect help for Gemini. Gem can be flighty, changeable and too much personality. Moon in Virgo is a great weight keeping the balloon of Gem closer to the ground. At night when you are pondering things, Virgo will slap you around a little bit for being a saracastic, over the top Gemini. Ascending Cancer adds an emotional mellowness to your outer personality. This ALSO helps the Gemini Sun. The Divine blessed you with this combo. WARNING: Occasionally Gem crashes and burns with over exertion. Cancer can weep too easily and Virgo can kick you in the butt. Don't let all of that occur. Stay on top of your consciousness. Be brave. Don't let bad moods drive you DOWN! Blessings.
Christofer French (author) from Denver on June 24, 2014:
Mihsil P: Cancer/Gem/Virgo - This is a great combination. Cancer has gravitas, worries like crazy, but worries about the important things. Hardworking but whiny, Gemini Rising comes in makes your public personality more bubbly. You can hide Cancer's moods more easily. Gem tends to uplift and elevate the sometimes somber overworked Cancer. This is GREAT for you.
Your Virgo Moon. Thats a great place for Virgo, the inside, the soul. This makes you deeply serious and concerned about serious things: health, family, achievement. This tends to make Cancer even more serious, and that's good. Virgo supplies rationale, reason and criticism to Cancer's watery sentiments. Feel good about this combination Warning: If you let yourself get depressed, Virgo could drag you down even more. Try to play up Gemini's blessings to offset this. Blessings.
Abby on June 22, 2014:
I just found out I'm a gemini with a moon in virgo and cancer ascendant. any insight?

Thank you times a million!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on June 17, 2014:
Bubby: Gem Sun gives you electric highly alive personality. Virgo Rising moderates nicely in a public setting. Virgo keeps you away from over the top gaffs, but unfortunately for others it accents criticism along with Gem sarcasm. As you go through life, realize you are blessed with a quick tongue and able analysis, but consider it a potential problem area if you are drinking, flippant, or in an arena that gives you too much permission to be yourself.
Cancer Moon has a gravitational effect on the runaway Gem nature. Its good. On the deep side, you care about family, and the progress of your loved ones and familial concerns. It can make you deeply moody on the inside at times, and that's something to watch out for, but it is a blessing to your Gemini.
I mention Virgo Rising as the "critic", but it also gives you a virginal and sweet nature to go along with effervescent elfin Gemini. So, just be happy and let your Cancer, take you to more serious realms. Nothing in this combo holds any scary propositions from my point of view.
As a final warning I would say that you are vulnerable in the area of "MOOD". Don't ever let your dangerous sentiments get you in verbal trouble. And stay away from depressive drugs, or better said: "Booze can make you lose." Stay soaring and you will be fine! Blessings.
Bubby on June 16, 2014:
Hi there, I hope I'm not too late to the party. I have Gemini sun, Cancer moon, Virgo rising. Tell me all about it!
StoryTeller on June 06, 2014:
Wow thanks for your explanations, for what I can tell it's definitely easier when my partner and I "turn on the fun". I used to not be impressed by and even avoid Aquas in the past because I thought they loved debating way too much :-) but without the Scorp's passion, so all in all looking a little shallow to me haha.
But now I realize that there is a real soft side about them (not JUST nice but also caring), which they somehow fear to show. I can relate much better to Aquas than I thought it possible and actually love their ways ;-) Thanks again for your insights and all the best to you!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on June 05, 2014:
Story Teller: ST: Scorp/Leo/Scorp Part: Aqua/Cancer/Cap
Well, let's just say you are the complex and intense one. And your partner cares like crazy, is no nonsense and seems a little spacey and all knowing.
That said YOU are the one who will need to be "understood". Partner is a kind busy critical giver. Your partner probably has problems with you. Not because of your faults, because of your internal ruminations and sense of secrecy and self importance. Leo Rising WOW. Good public calling card but watch out for the combination of pride and self nondisclosure. This Aqua pretends to care, Cancer really does care, but do it their way and Capricorn wants to be in control of EVERYTHING. Your partner is deceptively sweet on the outside and no nonsense through and through.
Because you are a double Scorp, you really really are tons nicer than you seem to be. If you love and are loved. Make that a treasured investment. Don't let your personal "stuff" get in the way of living a nice happy life. I always want to tell Scorps. "It is not as serious as it seems. I want to tell Pisces, Its not as dark as it seems. If your partner truly loves you and does not wear you out with Aqua expatiating, Cancer whining and Capricorn criticism. KEEEEEEEP THEM.
Scorp can truly be dignified and fun in bed. Try to emphasize FUN in general. You are your own worst enemy. Blessings on your head Mazel Tov.
StoryTeller on June 03, 2014:
Can you please let me know about those triads:
I: Sun Scorp, Moon Scorp, Rising Leo
My partner: Sun Aqua, Moon Cap, Rising Cancer
Thanks a lot!
Christofer French (author) from Denver on May 19, 2014:
Aries/Virgo/Leo. The first thing I see is pride. The next is SELF assuredness. What a combination. Your outer personality is "softened" by the Virgo/Virginal style. But Virgo loves to find fault, so the meekness sometimes surprises people when they say: "You dont sweat much for a fat girl".
But truly your Virgo Rising helps you. Put Aries and Leo together, and you have to have something to bring you down and make you think realistically about yourself.
You see the problem with this Sun/Moon placement is that Leo comes along after Aries has pushed hard and says "Not only that, but let me give you more of my mind. I am sure that you are pleasant and sweet and charming, but underneath your skin there lives power, assertiveness, pride and self agrandisement. I this does not sound like you then maybe you are more advanced than I know.
Be very secure with who you are. You are strong! But here are my warnings. Stop offending people off handedly. You are not always right. Keep telling yourself that.
Help others. Try to make a point of it. It will make you a better person and keep your image of yourself in check. Keep on being the charmer that you are, and don't lose your energy. Blessings!
katsamu on May 17, 2014:
I am not sure if you are still doing this but I would like to know what you can tell me about my triad:
Sun in Aries
Ascendant in Virgo
Moon in Leo
Christofer French (author) from Denver on May 14, 2014:
Kim S. You - Aries/Aqua/Libra. Him - Aqua/Gem/Sag - Sunwise, Aries and Aqua are close in the calendar, but way apart when it comes to their nature. Aqua - spacey, in love with itself, thinks it likes humanity, but it can't remember names. Very superior in the way they think about themselves. Aries is virile, energetic and power driven. Who is going to listen? But if somehow you both like each other then have at it. The Aqua and Gem rising signs are very cool and magentic, but they might be deceiving both of you as to your true natures.
Libra and Sag Moons make you both pleasant ambitious and high minded deep in your interior. THIS MAY BE THE SOULFUL MATCH YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. This could be a gold mine. My advice: Deal with those sun signs with patience. Don't try to overwhelm each other. Your Moons are the key. Let your interiors emerge and get to know each other deeply. This could be wonderful!!!
Kim S. on May 08, 2014:
Hi Chris last year I gave you two triads one which was my own n one of a potential partner I guess you could say. Well turns out I had his chart wrong the birth time was pm instead of am. Lol. So I came to ask again ... we've been talking fir almost a yrar now and we talk about a future together but have still yet to meet. He's asked me to move w him but I just want to know what it might be like once we neet. How do we relate ate we good together to livew each other. What's the attraction like any long term possibility? Ok so I'm 23 he's 25 I'm a sun in aries moon in libra and Aquarius risibg. He is sun in Aquarius moon in Sagittarius and gemini rising. Ty I appreciate it souch. And to tjinl I thought he had moon in scorpio and scorpio rising. Hahah.
Christofers Flow on April 21, 2014:
Leo / Gem Ris/ Virgo Moon. A Bold and friendly Lion blessed with a charm laden Rising sign, but also the Soul of Restraint and Self Control. Wow. You should be happy to be you. Fire at your Ego, Breezy air at your public personality and earthy practicality in your Interior. This would be great for business, dealing with the public and just getting along in general.
Blessing: The Virgo Moon adds gravitational control. You are more serious than you look. People can be fooled by the Leonine Pixy charm. The contrary blessing is that if you take yourself too seriously and become embroiled in a personal critical problem, the elevated nature of Leo/Gemini will keep you out of the critical doldrums.
Watch out for: Being taken away with grandiose expansionistic self involvement. Moon in Virgo loves to think of itself very highly. Gemini can be so flighty and talkative it can irritate others and make you look cocky. Leo IS Cocky. So there you are. Cool it every once in a while if you are gaining height in your balloon. Come down to earth. Great Combo. Do Well. Blessings.
Slim on April 19, 2014:
What's up Chris
