The Sun reflects the man, the father, the husband, the child, the body and our conscious aspect, among others. The Moon symbolizes the following: the woman, the mother, the wife, and our subconscious aspect, including feelings in Uranian Astrology (complemented by my observations).
If you would like to query the relationship of your parents with each other and your relationship with them, your relationship with your spouse/partner (provided you are following the parental imprinting) or how your conscious and subconscious self is coordinated, you can do two the following:
Calculate the position of your Sun and Moon in your chart, add them, and divide this number by two. So the Sun-Moon midpoint = (Sun+Moon)/2 in the ecliptic longitudinal coordinate system in Uranian as well as in mathematical language. Check if any planet or personal point occupies that space. If yes, a planetary picture is formed. Otherwise the midpoint possesses latent energy. A midpoint axis intersects the circle (ecliptic) in 2 places. One is the closer midpoint and the other one is exactly the opposite (so you can add or deduct 180° to/from the closer midpoint). This is done easiest by numbering each object from 0° to 360° from 0 Aries and working with these numbers. This is shown in Figure 1 on the radix of Maria Szepes, Hungarian occult writer and polyhistor.
As an advanced method, you can take into account hard aspects (like conjunction, opposition, square, semi-square) to the midpoint axis. In modern Uranian Astrology there is hardly any difference in the meaning of such “direct” and “indirect” planetary pictures, although some Uranian Astrologers assign slightly different meanings to them. It is worthwhile to experience the power of objects squaring or semi-squaring a midpoint axis.
If you have an Uranian Astrology software or have half an hour to generate a 90° dial, point at the Sun-Moon midpoint with the arrow and read what is situated right there and at the pointer’s opposite end. Advanced users can read the other midpoints of this axis, and then we can write a novel of the conscious and subconscious aspects of Szepes, as well as of her male-female relationships. It is shown in Fig. 2.
In case of Maria Szepes, the 90° dial’s pointer points at Ceres. Ceres is a dwarf planet that symbolizes nurturing, food (especially grains), feeding and harvest. However, Persephone, daughter of Ceres was abducted to the underworld; hence Ceres has a Plutonian underworld theme. Thus, Maria’s planetary picture is the following: (Sun+Moon)/2=Ceres. Shortly, Sun/Moon=Ceres. In this special case, however, Ceres is not at the midpoint, but the midpoint of Sun/Moon is in hard aspect with Ceres. The ‘=’ sign can represent either ‘equal’ or ‘hard aspect to equal’ in Uranian language. The type of hard aspect in question can be seen in Fig. 1. Her Sun is 261.5° away from 0 Aries (AR). Her Moon is 153.5° away from AR. (Note: I use a parallax adjustment of the Moon.) (261.5°+153.5°)/2=207.5° is their midpoint. Ceres is ~252.5° away from AR and 252.5°-207.5° is 45°. 45° is a semi-square (8th harmonics) and is a potent hard-aspect.
Szepes (Moon) had a wonderful, nurturing relationship with her husband (Sun) and parents (Sun, Moon). This is the positive manifestation of Sun/Moon=Ceres. However, her dad (Sun) died very early, her husband (Sun) also died earlier then she and they had had a baby boy (Sun), who also died prematurely, reflecting the manifestation of negative Ceres energies. She later wrote children books to express her nurturing side (again, the positive side of Ceres).
If you are watchful, you may notice that Cupido is sitting within ~1° orb on the other side of the pointer pointing at the Sun/Moon midpoint. Cupido is a TransNeptunian Planet (a TNP) and it symbolizes family, love, community and art. Thus, the Sun/Moon midpoint story can be waived further and we can see that family, relationships, community and art was of outmost importance for Szepes. Art and love must have been central in her family and communities as well. Presumably, artistic creation was a tool for them to express their conscious and subconscious selves. In Uranian language we can write that Sun/Moon=Cupido. We can see in Fig. 1 that Cupido is about 118° away from 0° Aries. The difference from the Sun/Moon midpoint at 207.5° is ~89.5°. That’s almost a square (90°), which is a hard aspect.
Where are your Sun/Moon midpoints? If you are new to Uranian Astrology, you can, of course, disregard hard aspects to midponts. As a general rule of thumb, you may use ~1° orb as Uranian Astrology operates with high precision. Choosing from the 1000s of asteroids or dwarf planets, you will surely find an interesting object sitting there, too. Should it be empty, do you remember what happened when a transiting, solar arc-directed or progressed planet hit the midpoint? If you are married, what does your Sun-Moon midpoint reflect?
