Father Sun, Mother Moon (Part Eight)BarrRoseanneImage

In my book, “Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo”, I describe each of the 144 possible combinations of the twelve Sun Signs and the twelve Moon Signs. In this series of articles I am presenting examples of some of these combinations.

Last time we saw how the Moon in Gemini works with the Sun in Libra. Our example was Barbara Walters. Now let’s take that same Moon sign and combine it with a different Sun sign, Scorpio. Our example of this combination is the comedian, Roseanne Barr. (Click here to see her horoscope.)

In “Father Sun, Mother Moon” I say this about Sun sign Scorpios, “They are given to strong desires and definite likes and dislikes. They tend to be drawn to extreme experiences and activities that test them both on a physical and psychological level.” I think this more or less sums up Barr’s early career, during which she seemed to constantly flying for one marriage, law suit and public scandal to another.

 I also say of Scorpio, “No sign is more impervious to the approval or disapproval of others.” Through all of her triumphs and troubles, Barr has never seemed concerned about how the public, or even her own family viewed her behavior. Barr’s no-holds-barred style is a big part of her appeal, but it is not for the faint of heart.

Of the combination of a Scorpio Sun with a Gemini Moon I say, “You are selective about the secrets you keep. At times, your willingness to discuss your personal issues far exceeds the willingness of other people to listen. You happily delve into psycho/sexual pools that most of us consider off-limits and you seem to take pleasure in shocking your peers.”

Barr has always made her own life and personality the center of her comedy. The “working class domestic goddess” she played on her sit-com struck a nerve with the public because it was so much a part of her own experience. However, there were other issues involving her personal life that we heard far too much about, such as her stormy relationship with her second husband, Tom Arnold, or her claims that her parent’s sexually abused her (a claim that years later, she withdrew).

I also say of this combination, “You are the Scorpio most likely to have fun with your obsessions.” There have been a lot of dark moments in Barr’s life, several times when she seemed to have gone too far and lost her bearings. But she has emerged from all of them with the same raucous laugh. Scorpios are noted for their resilience, for their ability to rise victorious out the ashes of defeat. If nothing else, Barr is an excellent example of this toughness.

“Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo” contains much more about both Sun sign Scorpios and the combination of the Sun in Scorpio with the Moon in Gemini, as well as all the other possible combinations of the Sun and Moon. Check out the ad on our front page for more information.
