Natal moon on SR descendant
Hello hope you're all well... astrology has been creeping back into my mind this fall so I decided to do a solar return as it was my birthday last week.
To my surprise last year my SR Asc was 00 Libra and my MC was approx 00 Aries. Thats a lot of cardinal energy in a normally fixed chart but I feel I didn't initiate anything last year - maybe a wasted opportunity?
So I am determined to make the most of my solar return this year. Here is the fact pattern I would appreciate some input on:
My natal moon is in my 7th house at 3 degree Gemini. This year 2 degree Gemini is my SR descendant. I read a lot of SR articles and most suggest the placement of natal planets in the SR is more important than the placement of SR planets. So I expect my natal moon SR DC conjunction to be the most important part of this year's SR chart.
In the natal my 7th house Gemini moon rules my Cancer 9th house moon and Leo is intercepted in the 9th house. In the SR Cancer is on the cusp of the 8th house and Leo is on the cusp of the 9th house. My SR moon is in Leo in the 8th house. Depending on house systems though you could also say that it was in the 9th in Leo. (I'm using Placidus).
I feel as if this is somehow an opportunity to integrate my inner intercepted 9th house Leo energies with my 9th house ruler, the moon. I more generally have a very wide natal sun-moon opposition, with my sun conjunct the Asc, so there are some real solar - lunar energies at play here. My SR sun is in the 12th house so seemingly takes a back seat.
My SR Asc is Sagittarius, with a Venus / Mercury conjunction on my natal Sagittarian Uranus.
SR Uranus is on my SR IC, and SR Mars sits on my natal MC in a grand earth trine with my SR Pluto and Jupiter.
These are the main configurations in my SR chart (in case you think these relevant) but I would most like help / advice / insight into my moon. I was wondering if anyone had any experiences with the moon on their descendant in SR or in their natal or if anyone had any tips on what this configuration might mean.
If you agree with me that the SR Leo moon is an opportunity to integrate certain natal themes of solar and lunar isolation, how might I set about doing this? 1st, 12th, 7th and 9th houses are emphasised... this is difficult for me because my life is kind of stuck with my career taking up 99% of my time.
