Sun-Moon Aspects in Synastry

Sun conjunct, sextile or trine Moon

This is one of the strongest aspects two people can have in synastry. The Sun and Moon are the most important planets in our chart, so this aspect is extremely powerful and binding.

In the case of the conjunction, the two of you feel you were made for each other.  There is a strong feeling of comfort and support between the two partners.

The Sun person feels supported and nurtured by the Moon person, while the Moon person feels more confident and powerful due to the Sun person. Together, they make a great team because they understand each other very well.

They will naturally want to build a home and family together.  There is a feeling that you can rely on one another. This aspect is often found in the synastry charts of married couples.

The Sextile and Trine Aspects work very similarly to the conjunction, but the effect is less intense. There is an overall feeling of acceptance and understanding between them. They work well together and it feels natural to be together.

Sun opposite Moon

This is a binding aspect to be found between lovers. With this aspect, a mutual attraction is present.

However, the Moon person may find the Sun person insensitive and overbearing, while the Sun person may find the Moon person overly dependent and overly sensitive. The Moon person may feel the Sun person stomps all over their feelings, and the Sun person may not even be aware of this! Regardless, oppositions in synastry are complementary.

Sun square Moon

This aspect is more problematic than the opposition. The Moon person may find the Sun person overly rational, dictatorial, and selfish, while the Sun person may find the Moon person overly sensitive and emotional.

Attraction to one another is present, but it is not without tension and competitiveness. They find it hard to support one another, because there is a basic misunderstanding over what each person needs.
