Q: “I’m a water sun sign, he’s a fire sun sign. But my moon is in fire and his moon is in water. Do opposites attract?” (Birth data supplied)
A: In your relationship there is a balance at the Sun/Moon level with elements. You having the Moon in Aries gives you an independent streak, which his Sun in Sagittarius loves. Then, his Moon in Pisces connects to your Sun in Cancer emotionally, which helps you both deepen your connection.
It’s a good connection, but it is only one part of the astro picture of your relationship.
He is a Sagittarius, with the Sun conjunct Uranus, showing he belongs to a generation of Saggies for whom freedom is incredibly important. That said, he has Venus in the traditional sign of Capricorn, conjunct Jupiter, showing he’s generous in love.
In addition, Saturn makes a supportive sextile to his Venus/Jupiter conjunction, indicating while he needs personal freedom, in love he likes boundaries, commitment and stability.
One of the loveliest Synastry connections, (the branch of astrology that deals especially with relationships), between your two charts, is a conjunction from your Mars in Capricorn to his Venus/Jupiter in Capricorn. This bodes well for passion and adventures in your partnership.
That said, Saturn has been transiting both the Capricorn planets you two share, as well as your Moon in Aries, (October and November 2011) bringing a reality check into your romance, and into your emotional life. This is a time to work within limits and be prepared to be practical about relationship planning.
You might not be able to have everything in love now, but if you’re prepared to accept responsibly and be mature, you can create a lasting foundation together.
