Loving the Quirks

Loving the Quirks
I imagined I'd have a productive day today, but by 2 pm the Pisces Moon had grabbed my natal Pisces planets and I was in the pool of our condo building, filled with gratitude as I watched the birds play in the flowering spring trees. Wow! There's nothing better than a spring day in California.
...Except perhaps having my husband bring me chocolate to the hot tub. Dramatic Sag rising that he is, he ran through the gate and across the patio and unwrapped the chocolate with amazing haste, putting it directly in my trembling hand, fully attuned to the emergency of the moment. Earlier I had texted him from my lounge chair: 'Moon in Pisces. Errands ditched. I'm in pool. Need chocolate.'
Pisces Moon days were not always so easy. We used to fight once a month. When the Moon goes into the sign of Pisces that puts it in my Piscean 12th house with my Pisces Moon and Mercury and 12th house Sun. (For astrological newbies, imagine a foggy mass of intuitive, sensitive, compassionate, out of body bliss magnified by three billion). Suddenly my life would stop and I would go into a deep trance space (yes, deeper than normal days!). A warm bubble bath, a book and some chocolate and I'd be happy. I might not have watched a film all month long but suddenly I'd rent three videos, make a cup of tea and curl up on the couch with my softest blanket. My independent subpersonality would be left at the door and all I wanted was cozy and relaxed.
Although my husband was born with a Pisces Sun, when that Moon goes into Pisces he experiences an opposite effect. That Moon infuses him with a level of energy that makes the energizer bunny look like a couch potato. My man doesn't follow the planets diligently, but when he goes into overdrive with energy to burn, projects to complete and ideas galore, he knows immediately where the Moon is.

You can see how this really didn't work very well at first. It took awhile for us to realize our reactions to this particular moon were putting us in completely different moods and it was no one's fault, it couldn't really be changed, and it was great to understand and depersonalize this difference. I call it 'loving your partner's quirks.'
We all have these quirks, or differences, large and small. When we are young, or when we are in new relationships, we sometimes imagine our compatibility rests on similar interests or feeling the same way about things. I love astrology's insight into how exactly we are both alike and different from our partners, friends and families. It gives us the awareness of the quirks so that we can rest more deeply in our heart space.
My husband has learned that when the Moon goes into Pisces he can give me a little chocolate and encourage me to rest and relax and I'll be happy. I've learned to encourage him to stay up doing his art until two in the morning and giggle about the fact that he's back up at four again. I know when the Moon goes into Aries I'll be feeling energetic and then when it goes into Taurus a few days later, we'll both slow down and be in the same vibe for a couple of days. Quirks. Loving our differences makes a lovely world.
Yours in Spirit!Kay Taylor
