highly emotional personality

Any ideas on what aspects or placements in the natal chart would indicate a highly emotional personality?

Moon, to Grace

Grace,

Aspects to the Moon (home, also emotions) indicate the level of emotions a person has. Highly excitable/rebellious emotional people often have the Moon and Uranus (friends, also rebellion) in aspect to each other. The more challenging the aspect between Moon and Uranus, the more "emotionally excitable" these people are.

Emotionally,

Tim

Re: highly emotional personality

Could it not depend on how much water the person has in their charts and how strong planets like Neptune and Pluto might be, in addition to the Moon?

Someone with a strong Moon-Uranus aspect might or might not tend to be more volatile and showing it whenever their delicate emotional equilibrium is upset, but is that the same as being 'highly emotional?'

How much emoting actually takes place seems to depend on fashion too - with the new emos, obviously, emoting is cooler than it was than the days of stiff upper lips. Apparently, emoting was also a more aceptable than it is now in 17rh-Century England at least, when men could and did weep openly.

Probably, however, in the dog-eat-dog workplace, poker faces may still remain considered as strategically advantageous. The same could be said for the world of Mafioso that Mario Puzo painted in his Gadfather books, where bland Libran 'reasonableness' was Scorpio Moon doublespeak for 'I will send the boys around if you do not comply.'

No doubt, Puzo's Scorpio Moon was highly emotional, but here was a climate where once again, still waters had to run deep, as to be open about feelings could unfortunately invite an early demise.

Re: highly emotional personality

I have moon in cancer sextile pluto/uranus, trine neptune, wide orb to opp mars, and also trine chiron. I would say I am highly changeable emotionally. have capacity to be very up very down and it can change really quickly. Best way for me to manage the emotional changes is by painting it out. It is a constant change.

I dont show it in a dramatic way, quite concealed inside. many people are surprised at the depth of feeling when I let down the mask. i also feel other peoples emotions inside myself. It was really confusing before I realised what was going on. I would feel stuff really strongly and not understand why I was feeling such a way. I also find it difficult to be in crowds for a long time. I can also pick up on really good vibes too.

I reckon my moon in cancer gives a sensitivity to moods and emotions, fine tuned attena. Also strong contacts with outer planets. Wide orb to mars probably mixes things up a bit to... added tension. Incompatible sun to moon also doesn't help things, needs creative solutions to adapt.

having said all that wouldn't not change it, I feel life intensely.

Love Light Flea

Re: highly emotional personality

Moon in the water houses. Maybe a Moon with challenging aspects.
Moon square Saturn.

Re: highly emotional personality

I would have thoguth that Moon square Saturn would indicate emotional repression, rather than being emotional. I thought it was an aspect related to apparent coldness.

Re: highly emotional personality

moon trine jupiter
moon on midheaven
moon in the eights house
neptune strong
pluto moon
lots of water
all this i ve observed with highly emotional people.

couldn t it be also water and earth, as this shows the melancholic humor and means up and down as a rollercoaster?

and maybe moon square saturn also is emotional insecurity, feeling not to beloved.

greetings and a lovely day!

QFT. The whole chart is important. No single aspect or planet dictates a person's personality. My own chart has many aspects to the moon including those to all the outer planets and quite a few personal ones. However I am not an emotional person, as my chart has very little water (only uranus in scorpio), and none of the watery planets are on the angles. Looking at a single aspect may lead you to believe that I am an emotional person (neptune opposite Moon), the whole chart shows a better picture of who I am.

Both house and sign placement of the moon is important as it indicates what you react to emotionally, not just how (sign).

Edit: Fire and Mars usually indicates Passion, which is a very different from watery emotion.

Re: highly emotional personality

I think it is also important to consider venus and her situation because it shows how and when it is expressed, if at all.

Personally, Uranus square moon, conj Jupiter, and in pisces along with my stellium makes me highly emotional at times. However msot people that don't really know me have no idea because i choose to express it very personally because of Venus being in capricorn and the 12th house. My moon also makes a wide square to Saturn and at times it is hard to cry even when i want to. the only people who see me cry are my family and very close freinds. even then i still need to feel as if i can show it.

Another thing would maybe be Mars as has been said. Anger, for example, would be shown by Mars. I suppose it depends on what kind of emotions we are talking about.

Re: highly emotional personality

THe moon in Leo can be very dramatic and expressive.
THe Moon in Cancer can be very emotional but tend to withdraw when hurt.
Moon with Uranus can mean great excitability and erratic and unstable emotions.
Moon with Neptune can mean easily hurt and moved to tears.
Moon in Aries can be very aggressive and cruel emotionally
Moon in Sagittarius tends to over exaggerate issues and cry crocodile tears.

Re: highly emotional personality

I'm kinda highly emotional but it's not always really apparent like with some people...

The aspects in my chart that I consider to contribute to this temperament are:

Sun conjunct Mars (In Scorpio) along with Mercury conjunct Pluto (in Scorpio)
Moon square Jupiter


Other aspects that may help are:

Venus conjunct Jupiter (expansion of emotional expression)
Venus trine Uranus (Emotions expressed in an Individualistic way)
and Venus trine Neptune (sensitive)

And with my Moon in Gemini (even though it's not really considered an emotional sign) my emotions rapidly change. Like from extremes. So that's important too.

Re: highly emotional personality

[quote=Shining Ray]
Moon Pluto again two water planets but more darker, the emotional life can be intense, with domestic crisis. Powerful feelings.
quote]

totally agree with it. Personally i have 10thMoon opposite 4thPluto, and i have a very powerful feelings and crisis towards the domestic issue. specially towards my mother i have a kind of resentment. having the Moon in Aries i can be pretty cruel emotonally if somebody "bites me", my revenge i can say is highly emotional cruelty. I also find in myself a "manipulative" side to protect my feelings.

I think play an important role searching for a highly emotional personality:

-consideration of the aspects to the moon (specially if the person is sun sign CANCER, or ascendant CANCER, wich is my case, i have both). I belive too CANCER is a very emotional sign.
-PISCIS-NEPTUNE strongly placed, is also a very sensitive and emotional sign.
-lots of water in the chart (wich is also my case)

Re: highly emotional personality

hi everyone
Ive often wondered this same question

because i have so many aquarian plannets im kinda aloof and carefree
but im also very emotional in the way i take things personally far too much, i have tryed to train myself to have first thoughts of its not me its not personal, its not that i think everything is about me im actually the opposite, its... i dont want anyone to disslike me as i really do have a big heart and i wear it on my sleave so i find it hard to think others could be so cruel.

I have moon on my mc at 5 leo.. opp 11 aqu venus in 4th H
stellium of sun venus merc there.
Iam scorpio asc and neptun concunct asc
.. but do you think the placement of chiron has much to do with it.. mine is in pisc.. sort of self explainatory.. lol

Re: highly emotional personality

Moon Mars seems to be very emotional when under transit even by an inner planetary transit it can flare up.
As a person gets older and or can parent their moon with the sun more this can happen less.

Re: highly emotional personality

As a type of summary to the above posts, the most emotional person I have ever met, often times to the point of hysterics, is my fiancee.

She has a Sag moon conjunct Neptune in the 4th house squared by her Virgo Mars and Venus in the 1st house. I have never seen anything quite like it...

Re: highly emotional personality

Could she possibly have HPD (Histrionic Personality Disorder)?

Re: highly emotional personality

I don't know the person, but I could imagine that someone with a Sagittarius Moon square Mars-Venus might certainly show it when they are upset, but does that have to mean thast she has a personality disorder?

Today it seems that people can be labelled with personality disorders quite quickly and then given psychotic drugs for 'depression' etc.
The configuration you mention Nexus7 also includes Neptune so one could suggest that the person may not know when to stop when she gets into a 'tantrum'
My astrology teacher used to say that when this happens a person is letting their moon run the show. Much like the mars return child having a tantrum in the supermarket.
The adult sun part of us when we are grown up can to take that child by the hand (my astrology teacher used to wisely say) and perhaps say to oneself it is OK your going to be fine I will look after this situation and I am capable to do it.
Somehow this procedure is done automatically by most folk in their private self talk (for want of a better word) but Mars Moon seems to have to learn this from scratch.
It seems possible that for mars Moon, when transited by most planets a minor situation feels very terrifying and the child (moon) becomes fearful.

Re: highly emotional personality

Most people with personality disorders do not step foot in a psychiatrist's office (so there is no official diagnosis), and it's doubtful that drugs would be prescribed anyway, as it is a disorder of the personality not a mood disorder.

Saying he's "never seen anything quite like it" and "often times to the point of hysterics" to me screams abnormal.

If this is an apt description of her, and he is not exaggerating, then I am merely warning him of the possibility she may have HPD. If this is the case, then I want to make sure that he realizes that he will be married to this behavior for the rest of his life.

PDs do not mature like the rest of us. They do not change. He may be intrigued by her right now, but a few years into the marriage, this behavior will feel abusive.

Re: highly emotional personality

'Saying he's "never seen anything quite like it" and "often times to the point of hysterics" to me screams abnormal.'

True, each and every person has to dcide what particualr foibles and weaknesses we could accept and not accept in a close relationship. It is not clear how long the poster here has known this person, whether or not these freakouts have been discussed, what current stress the person my be under - or for that matter, the synastry. If the other person's Saturn for example were in the picture, that to my mind might not bode well for any long term relationship.

It might also depend on whtehr or not these tantrums come with other emotional problems that may ask for more from a partner than anyone could ever realistically give - being unduly jealous or clingy for xample or making suicidal gestures at the slightest sign of any abandomnent, real or imagined.

I still find myself shuddering where I see expressions like 'personality disorder' come up. though I am not sure this is any worse than 'afflicted moon' - it just sounds potentially stigmatising to me.

Re: highly emotional personality

I think we are now living in a very ordered society where there is a certian way to behave and anything outside that is regarded as dis-order.
This appears to have been also so in the 50's and before but declined in the 60s' for about 30 years. Then seemed to slowly return to what the 50's are like.

It gets called the 'polite society' here.

Marsy behaviour is not well integrated in our society nowadays. People are expected to be quiet and go about their jobs in work in an ordered way and any outburts seem to be confined to places like the road (eg the euphamistically called road rage).

I agree that some current personal drama could be exaggerating this ladies emotional nature. Perhaps she is having a outer planetary transit to her Moon. This could trigger a mars moon to behave more erratically

I recall my astrology teacher saying that when ever one sees rage acted out, it is always due to some heavy family / personal wound being triggered in the person. Its like we become the raging infant again for that particular instant.
Of course this is an alert to the person to look at this themselves and examine it personally so as to resolve the inner dynamic. But sometimes we wait until it escalates in our lives and really gets in the way of our ability to cope / causes anxiety attacks etc. But even then some people choose the drug option rather than do the hard inner work and make the difficult personal behavioural changes. An outer like Pluto is often around when we are really forced to look at our inner emotional patterns & emotional behaviours. It is possible that this lady could be at this stage now. How she deals with it tho is up to her I guess

Re: highly emotional personality

Personality disorders are EXTREMELY stigmatizing, designed with a coherent image of culture and normalcy in place that are in fact, transient and evolutionary and reflect only the means by which the dominant forms of power are in place and remain unquestioned. Someone who is hysterical may have issues stemming from deep inside, from within the soul, but a personality disorder is a way we in this culture use to describe affects of the soul which do not make sense to us because we have no true spiritual outlets, only ascetic religious ones that prey upon our infantile needs... but I digress.

Moreover, if this person is a woman and is being called hysterical, this stems from overt patriarchal and sexist norms and classifications. Hysteria has been labeled as female and is given to the female condition-- which has been defined as without reason/overly emotional. The first cure for it? Removing the womb... hysteria was thought to mean "wandering womb." Today hysterectomies are common for women who are experiencing "hormonal distress."

If you truly care about your fiancee and want to see her well, invite her to explore those issues by the "hysterical outbreaks." What triggers them? How does she cope? Have you ever just tried holding her? Venus in Virgo (and I one) has committment to self-healing... encourage her growth.
