Moon Sextile Ascendant
This will be an imaginative and intuitive individual. Naturally inclined to be a warm and nurturing person, others can readily sense this person’s finer features. They shine with a natural concern for the well-being of others and this makes people feel quite safe and secure in their presence.
They generally work in harmony with others and pick up the moods and the atmosphere surrounding them easily. Adaptability and flexibility are simply part of their normal working nature. This is a person who lifts the mood of the room, simply by being in it. Mostly because they exude an air of being happy to work and inclined to gentle humor.
This native might sometimes wonder why they react so sensitively to the activity around them and the things people say to them or near them. The truth is they work best in a calm soft harmony and this makes them super aware of any disturbances in that flow. If it isn’t calm, it isn’t working for them. This, of course, has given rise to a character trait of correcting disturbances before they can cause his working environment to become just such a problem.
Let’s be honest here, this is a native that excels at mediating, they have this unique ability to make each party feel like he has their best interests in mind. That he has an understanding of their point-of-view and thus, is going to “fix things” in their favor. Of course, he makes both sides feel this way, and by doing this, he is able to assist in getting them to listen to one another through his calm and soothing ear. He smooths ruffled feathers and gently coaxes each side to try a bit of compromise. He’s like the stern father reminding them that they actually love one another, even if they are at odds for the moment.
Of course, this native didn’t start out this cool. Nope. This is a guy that suffered from feelings of deep inferiority at some points along his journey. Every comment aimed at him was met with a deep fear that people were criticizing him or finding him wanting. This fear transformed him into the man he is now. Mostly, because he was so aware of his own inner history that he recognizes and responds to those subtle indications in others. His storehouse of knowledge in the area of fear of failure is, in fact, one of his greatest resources in understanding others.
What an amazing person! He has suffered great uncertainties in his life and turned those moments into lessons! He now uses those same uncertainties to champion people to such an effect, that he is considered an expert in understanding them, never realizing that he is this expert as a result of many struggles and self-reflection. This guy has cultivated a lifetime of never giving up until he conquers.
The thing I find most intriguing about this guy is that he has conquered extreme obstacles and step-by-step become the man he is today but inwardly has yet to recognize that this is a sizable skill that not everyone has. He might even still consider himself the same kid that was fearful of being criticized.
Only, he isn’t. He’s compassionate and endearing. He reaches out not only to understand people but draws upon some of his worst memories in order to bridge the gap between himself and others. He deserves every single accolade but not for the aspects of himself he thinks. It isn’t his looks, his charisma, or even his business sense that brings him success. It’s the fact that others can sense that he is completely and uniquely kind. That he truly doesn’t favor any single person above another. Poor or rich, fat or thin, every person is regarded by him as an equally valid human. This understanding of heart and soul is his greatest strength and the true reason he succeeds. He is at his heart, loving and sincere. He is, quite honestly, a true lover of humanity.
As a child, he might have perhaps felt he wasn’t keeping up with others. That his habit of mulling over facts and sifting through thoughts longer than others, somehow put him at a disadvantage. He was incredibly sensitive to the point that he felt the need to curl inward and hide his true reactions. Even as an adult there will be moments where he shifts outward away from the sharpness of his immediate feeling. Observing rather than reacting. This is not an indication of being less caring, this is an indication of being more understanding without adding emotional complication.
This is a guy who thinks he isn’t competent. He doesn’t do things like others and this, he incorrectly assumes, means that he is inadequate. Foolishly he views himself as flawed without considering this might actually be a strength. That by its very nature, his way of doing things isn’t so much flawed as favorable. Not flawed, gifted! He wants to fit in, but his gifts, by their very nature, stamp him as a rarity. He is unique and gifted with qualities that make him shine. He isn’t meant to blend in, he is meant to lead.
