Sun Opposite Moon Natal and Transit

Sun Opposite Moon TransitSun opposite Moon in the natal chart is the second most important aspect in astrology, behind Sun conjunct Moon. The reasons being, the Sun and Moon are the equal most important bodies in the heavens, and the opposition comes just behind the conjunction in strength. Life on earth is dependent on the relationships between Sun and Moon, as seen and felt from Earth. When Theia collided with Earth, it tilted our planet to allow the seasons.

The formation of the Moon from the debris of the giant impact was, and remains, essential to keeping our planet from hurtling into space. The earliest records in stone point to the obsession with understanding this cosmic relationship, with the prediction of full and new moons, lunar and solar eclipses becoming an exact science.

Sun opposite Moon in the natal chart creates a very competitive, sometimes confrontational nature. The major theme in life is that of polarities, extremes, and understanding. It is through pitting oneself against the other, that greater self understanding is attained. This process involves much stress and tension, as it feels like there is a constant battle to be waged against the adversary.

As if looking in a mirror, the understanding of the subconscious self comes through conscious questioning of the other. You investigate your inner nature and behavior, through the reactions they provoke in other people and in events around you. This gives you a different perspective, which over time will evolve your sometimes blinkered nature.

Gaining knowledge of the facts, or conscious reality, is the path to trusting your own subconscious, your intuition and instincts. When young, you may be more of the scientist and skeptic, but with age you learn to balance the conscious and the facts of the Sun, with the subconscious and the mysteries of the Moon. Compromise and negotiation will be mastered.

Sun Opposite Moon Transit

Transiting Sun opposite Moon creates a tense and confrontational environment. Personal conflict and crises may drain your energy. To overcome any opposition or tests of character, you must draw on your emotional strength and instincts to overcome these challenges to your ego. Others may try to bring you down by attacking your personal life, or you may have to juggle the polarity of home and work, or your needs and responsibilities. It is you against the world today, or this 28 days for a new moon, or the next few month for a solar eclipse.

In your personal life there may be increased tension between you and family members, with extra emotional burdens being placed on you. The external pressures have the potential to leave you feeling out of sorts or with butterflies in your stomach. The key is to balance emotions and conscious intention. Despite these challenges, or because of them, you can actually achieve a lot or progress in your personal and professional life at this time.

This interpretation for Sun opposite Moon transit can also be read for a Solar Eclipse and New Moon opposite Moon.

  1. Thanks, Jamie. This could have been written about my friend, born at Full Moon, especially how she questions everything. We’re both lunar Librans though, so we keep it friendly. 😉
