Sun Sextile MoonSun sextile Moon in the natal chart gives a charming and exciting nature. These people are popular and attractive because they express themselves very well, and their spark makes them creative and enthusiastic about life.

The energy is simmering, less fiery than the conjunction and not as harmonious as the trine. The keywords “creative self-expression” comes across when you look at famous people with this aspect in tight orb. Another trait of these people seems to be high ambition.

Sun sextile Moon always gives the Ascendant sextile Part of Fortune, an indicator of reaching happiness of the soul, and general success in life. There should also be a degree of psychic ability, or at least a very acute intuition.

  1. Me, me! Modesty prevents me from commenting on my alleged charm and/or “exciting nature.” However, I’ve always had a strong creative urge, and I do make friends pretty easily. And sadly, I am a lot more ambitious than one might guess from looking at my negligible achievements.

    Another dimension of Sun/Moon aspects that is interesting to consider is that it seems to describe the relationship you observed between your parents, and how that impacts your own romantic relationships. My parents had a stormy relationship early on, but by the time I came along they had a friendly, convivial, chatty relationship with each other. From watching their marriage I got the idea that your partner should be your best friend. Just a theory – it would be interesting to see what others have observed.

    Thanks for the db project, Jamie!

  2. Hi Jamie and Marina

    What a great idea to make a databank like this. I have the sextile: Sun on 1 Cancer in the 7th house, Moon on 7 Virgo in the 9th house. Jupiter at 10 Cancer in the 7th house on the cusp of the 8th house, as ruler of my Rising.

    To me it’s a fortunate aspect. I do not have an easy chart nor life but this aspect keeps me in balance.
    Also I do not have any confusion on male/female issues:
    It just flows easily.

    Jupiter as ruler of my Rising also makes a sextile with my Uranus/Pluto on 16 Virgo in the 9th house. Which is in conjunction in a wide orb with my Moon. While my Sun Makes a Quintile with Uranus/Pluto

    Black Moon Lilith makes an opposition to my Moon and a trine to my Sun and Jupiter.

    The Sun/Moon sextile definitely is the glue that keeps it all together because it‘s such a basically ok connection between the two lights and the male/female principle’s.

    Yes, the parental relationship is represented there too. Convivial and chatty seems right for the sextile. I read somewhere that it has a Chironic feel about it which I see as an Earthy Mercury which is definately chatty. Chiron can be stormy.
    I think the sextile has a very maverick, innovative energy too. Thanks for your input April.

  4. My number 1 son has this aspect, Capricorn Sun to Scorpio Moon and whilst he is still waters running deep emotionally, he is generous, industrious, courteous, has always been incredibly well liked by his friends, teachers, just everyone and is the perfect child. Slight bias in the last few words.
