[00:03:17] Shannon: Hmm. Thank you, Amanda. Hello, astrology hub. So thrilled to be back again. I really appreciate the invitation. All

The Moon, Cancer and Motherhood

[00:03:25] Amanda: right, so let's start with a big picture question. How can we use astrology to better understand. Maybe even appreciate or work through challenges. How can we use astrology in our relationship with our mothers to foster just more strength in those relationships.

[00:03:48] Shannon: Traditionally, we look to the moon when we're talking about the mother archetype, the moon ruling cancer rules, the fourth house, just try to understand the archetype of cancer of the mother. In my system, the archetype of the moon is, The nourishing mother archetype and the moon itself, it was as the sun rules the outward expression of our, of our being.

[00:04:11] The moon is the internal world, the the hidden parts of us. So that's our feelings and our emotions, and. Our needs, what gives us security or lack thereof. It's sort of our, our processing system in a way. And it has to do with how we respond to life. So, you know how we emote, um, where the sun acts, the moon reacts based on the imprints from childhood.

[00:04:36] So when we talk about the moon, we're naturally looking at the mother because that's where the imprint. Essentially comes from is of how we feel safe or not safe, what our attachment styles are. And that also has to do with our childhood, our home and our family. And so, you know, when we're talking about, uh, learning about the mother, then this is where I would start is with the moon.

The Moon's Impact on Our Relationsgips

[00:04:57] Shannon: And

[00:04:59] Amanda: how do you see an understanding of the moon, like what's the potential impact that that has on someone's relationships?

[00:05:12] Shannon: It's, it's integral. It's everything, you know, so how we're nurtured, how we're cared for, whether our environment was safe and loving and supportive.

[00:05:24] It creates a dynamic and a framework for how we view the world. It creates a magnetism into the field and then attracts a vibrational match to the people that come into our lives.

[00:05:37] Amanda: I can imagine that people might feel sort of stuck. By that because it's like, oh shoot, like I didn't have a great relationship with my mom, or I didn't feel safe.

[00:05:48] Or I didn't feel loved. And does that mean I'm sort of doomed to, to attracting those types of relationships in the future? Or what do you see again, by like them understanding or having insight into that core connection? How does that. Help them move out of patterns or, or create new patterns, more healthy experiences in their life.

[00:06:14] Shannon: In no way doomed ever. The contrasting energies are the, are the sort of grist for the mill for our soul's evolution. I always tell my clients, we don't just wake up in the morning and be like, Hey, it's a great day to evolve. Let's heal today. It's through suffering. And so if you had a, difficult childhood, which most people did, there's obviously a spectrum of that.

[00:06:35] Uh, then that content of whatever the material was that was emerging during that time is actually significant for the soul's evolution. So, from an evolutionary perspective, um, you know, we, we would maybe even say that we choose our appearance. It's like this from, from a unitive consciousness perspective, when we come into a new life in the mysterious way, our higher self connected to the one source manifests the perfect storm to reveal that which where we left off in the previous incarnation.

[00:07:06] So the pain, the loss, you know, the insecurities, you know, the karma passed down from our parents into whatever the programming is, is actually the material. That is so potent for our awakening and for our growth and evolution because sometimes if we're just comfortable and everything's sort of just like, okay, we can live quite a, like a, a ho home life, you know, there's not a lot of.

[00:07:30] Evolution in the sense because it stays on like a, a very, material or sort of, programmed level, and it's actually often the people that go into the darkness or into the shadow that accelerate their own evolutionary journey.

The Chart & Our Maternal Relationships

[00:07:45] Amanda: Are there any specific aspects or placements in the chart that may also indicate.

[00:07:51] Challenges or strengths in the mother child relationship, and this could be, you know, challenges or strengths as a mother that you might have with your children or certain, that might be real specific for you with your

[00:08:04] Shannon: relationship with your mother.

[00:08:06] I think that no mother-daughter relationship or mother son relationship is perfect. . So there's gonna be like the positive things that came from that, and then the challenging things. And if we wanna talk about it, mathematically through the chart, it's the aspects. And so the squares and the oppositions can sometimes be more challenging.

[00:08:25] The trines in the sex styles are more, more harmonious and there's usually a blending of both. With the moon, with, you know, in the fourth house and whatever planets are there and whatever their relationship is to the rest of the chart. You know, the cancer, wherever the cancer falls in the chart. So you can look at several places in the chart to get more and more information.

How the Birth Chart Supports the Journey through Motherhood

[00:08:46] Amanda: How has an understanding of your chart and your children's chart helped you show up as a mother?

[00:08:56] Shannon: Goodness. Um, I think. I, I learned a lot about myself by learning about my mother.

[00:09:05] And so that's where the moon is so powerful because I have a Libra moon, but it's conjunct Pluto in the eighth house. So, um, and my mother's a Scorpio. My mother is very refined and very aesthetic also, and, and creative and likes to keep everything just so, but she's had a lot of intensity in her life and a lot of, a lot of loss and a lot of, you know, scorp, Scorpio, dissents and initiations.

[00:09:35] And we had a journey together, you know, growing up. And so for me to. Learn about Scorpio, about her. Help me to have compassion for all that she's been through and all the loss that she endured and to depersonalize What I maybe didn't get from her because she was. In survival mode and dealing with her own soul's evolution.

[00:10:03] And so I think that in general, that's what the chart can do is help us to, put ourselves in our mother's shoes. You know, I think it's important to remember that our parents and grandparents lived in a very different time and evolution was a lot about just survival coming out of the wars. And, you know, we, they didn't have the free consciousness necessarily to.

[00:10:29] Do this spiritual work on the level that we do. You know, astrology was really still very underground. You went to therapy, you were crazy. You know, now it's the healthy people that go to therapy. And so their, the distortion of their experience, their emotions, their, um, whatever the dynamics were, which are the wounding things to us, right?

[00:10:51] They didn't have the same opportunities that we did, so I feel like. You know, astrology helps us to get the context of the story so that one, we can, elicit compassion and understanding. And two, we can try to know how to relate with them on another, on a more, intimate level by knowing how they relate, you know, knowing how they express themselves and what, what, what are their needs.

[00:11:17] Hmm. And then

[00:11:18] Amanda: how have you taken that? Like how have you applied what you've learned there about your mom and her chart, and your chart, and then, uh, and then looked at your children's chart and, and how do, how do you bridge that with them as well?

[00:11:35] Shannon: It's interesting, you know, talking about our children's charts because, I don't know if anybody else has had this experience, but I, you know, don't study my kids' charts like I study mine because, you know, there's a complex equation there, like a lot of things and, and, and you don't wanna necessarily be like, Ugh, you know, oh my gosh, what is that gonna be?

[00:11:57] Or, oh no, you know, and project something fear-based onto their. Onto their life. And so the way that I approach their charts is on a need to know basis, based on their development. And I will follow the transits. Um, as you know, Amanda, we're going through some things that is like, wow, thank, thank, thank goodness astrology.

[00:12:20] So I'll just say like, Pluto is, is squaring my daughter's moon right now and. Without the knowledge of, of, of the archetype of Pluto, it would be really difficult, very difficult to understand why is she sad for no reason. That was what she would tell me, right? Why is she, um, you know, ha having trouble sleeping and having these thoughts of death and all this stuff.

[00:12:46] So, I mean, you know, absolutely invaluable. So I. Also, you know, I try to nurture who they are based on their archetypes. They're, I have two children and they're both very, very different. And I don't expect the same thing from both of them. I actually am able to meet them on different levels based on my understanding of their charts.

[00:13:09] So I,

[00:13:10] Amanda: does that help? Yeah, I, I mean, I hear you and, and to my experience of this is that I don't need a lot of information. About their charts in order for it to be really, really helpful. For example, one of my daughters is a Libra, so I know, and she has a lot of Libra energy, so I know that Venus is her ruling planet, and so I put extra effort into making her, like making her, uh, environment.

[00:13:41] Beautiful drawing a bath, like if she's having a hard time drawing a bath for her and putting oils and, and flower petals and like pretty music and, you know, appealing to that Veian side even when she was going through a hard time. And I connected her with the anonymous because I wanted her to connect with Venus as an archetype that goes through this transformation.

[00:14:05] She has a lot of Scorpio in her chart too. Mm-hmm. So, you know, connecting her with like, this is not just. A hard transition for you. This is an initiation that you are getting to like step into, and you're getting to decide who you become. On the other side of this, But it's because I'm, I know that Venus connects with her really intimately and, and she feels a connection towards the venesian archetype.

[00:14:30] So it's, it's a good one to draw on. And I've found that with, and, and literally the other day, it was so cute. It's like we were talking about diet and health and nutrition, and it's like, I've just, I'm just figuring out that it's all about balance. It's, everything's all about balances. I'm like, oh, why haven't spoken like such a Libra?

[00:14:48] She goes, but it's not just because I'm a Libra. I'm, I'm like, no, you're right. But like, some people learn through extremes. Yeah. Like they need the extremes. And I, and I was talking to her about Buddhism and how it's so much about the middle way and that that might be something for her to explore. You know, it's, it, it's, it's amazing as a, a guidepost in the conversation and a, a way to connect with them.

[00:15:12] Absolutely. On a different level. Oh yeah.

[00:15:15] Shannon: I, I have a, a Leo son with a Scorpio moon, and we have to talk all the time about, it's not always about you, Leo, like at the dinner table, like eating the whole basket of rolls. I'm like, nobody got any, you know, and, and also just like, you know, he's like the star, you know, all through the day at school and sports, like everything.

[00:15:34] And then when he comes home, he's exhausted and he has to go into his room and shut his curtain, his Scorpio moon and shut down and go into his like, Underworld cave and reboot. Yes. And so it's, it's just,

[00:15:46] Amanda: yeah, it's invaluable. Invaluable. I know, I, I agree. Like it's, I think of like, again, like you just said, the Scorpio moon.

[00:15:53] I have a Scorpio moon daughter and a Gemini moon daughter. And the way that they need to be nurtured when they are feeling unsafe or vulnerable or emotional or triggered or whatever is it's like night and day. Literally, the one needs to talk. The other needs to go into the little cave and can't talk like, it's like impossible for her to talk.

[00:16:17] So it's, yeah, it's, it's incredible. I love, I love hearing about the real life stories, like what do you see with your clients in terms of how understanding themselves a little bit better helps them, again, be a better mom or be a better daughter or mother themselves too.

[00:16:33] Shannon: All the time. You know? I mean, that's the power.

[00:16:36] That's why I love what I do because it's like we get to validate people. I always say, you know what a great gift to sit with you on a soul level and reflect you back to yourself. It's just like, you know, because sometimes there's this vague idea of this part of themselves or you know, they have this really like hidden.

[00:16:55] Passion. And I'm like, no, this is important. This is part of what you're here to get your gift to life. And, uh, and so, you know, I, I get to see it all the time with my clients that it's like the lights going on of remembering and, and owning and trusting who they really are on a deep level. Hmm. Okay.

Mother's Day Gifts by Zodiac Sign

[00:17:13] Shannon: Let's go

[00:17:14] Amanda: to the Zodiac sign gift ideas for our moms.

[00:17:18] And this again, so the, the framework that I invite you to use as you're listening to this is. Is this a gift that your mom would like based on her Zodiac sign? Is this a gift that you would like to receive based on your Zodiac sign? And this could be maybe hint, hint for the rest of your family, or is this something you wanna gift yourself?

[00:17:43] Again, like we don't have to wait for external things. We can and need to mother. We need to mother ourselves. So, um, lots of different ways to view this list that Shannon's gonna go through. Um, and then Shannon also, would you, would you say that this is based primarily on the Sun sign or would you also include the Rising

[00:18:03] Shannon: sign in this consideration?

[00:18:05] That's what I wanted to say is just, let's just say archetypes like, you know, it could be the moon. The moon is what makes you feel good. You know what you need to feel fulfilled. And, uh, so you know, if you, if you know the other aspects of the chart, great. You can include those, because some of these gifts, you know, they're good for more than one sign that I came up with.

[00:18:23] But definitely, you know, the three, the sun, the moon, or the ascendant.

[00:18:27] Amanda: Okay, so if I, so I'm a Capricorn son, so I would listen to the Capricorn. I'm a Gemini moon, so I would listen to the Gemini. I'm Aquarius rising, so I'll listen to the Aquarius. Yeah. Okay. We, we have, we have, and you have lots of options for gifts.

[00:18:39] Yeah. And or if you have heavy Pisces in your chart, even if it's not your sun, moon rising, but you're very PIs because of the rest of your configuration, you could listen for that too, if you know your chart right. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. All right. So, uh, very flexible rules here. All right, Shannon, do go ahead,

[00:18:59] Shannon: take it away.

[00:19:00] And yeah, if you think of anything too, Amanda, you've jump in too. Okay. Um, alright. So Aries, you know, it's like anything active, right? So like a gift certificate to a yoga workshop or anything physical like that. Also very creative and likes to try new things. So I was thinking like some art supplies, um, or something in that realm to, you know, pioneer a new hobby for themselves.

[00:19:24] So that's Aries. Taurus. That's a little easier. I think Anything that's sensual or decadent, um, that is derived from pleasure, that has to do with pampering. So something with a spa massage. A luxurious robe, you know, jewelry, perfume. I mean that, you know, it's not hard to, to find something for a Taurus, I don't think, Gemini.

[00:19:46] So maybe like a gift certificate to a bookstore, um, or some kind of a class, like a cooking class. And so in this case, a cooking class could also be good for other signs like maybe, Cancer or even Taurus, gest stationary, right? So they could write their thoughts down.

[00:20:04] Amanda: And, and the offer on that one, the bookstore.

[00:20:08] Um, as a Gemini Moon, I also love audio books so much. So if you would, you could consider throwing in an audible, um, gift certificate or some sort of audiobook as an option too.

[00:20:22] Shannon: Totally. All right. Cancer. So, you know, something sentimental like creating an album, you know, a picture album, something of, of the history of the family.

[00:20:31] The heritage would be extremely meaningful. Like even, you know, a charm bracelet with all the kids' names on it. You know, something to preserve history, you know, not really materialistic, And Leo, uh, you know, Leo's, you know, love to shine, so you, you know, some kind of a, a gift certificate.

[00:20:50] I don't like to buy. Clothes for my mother. I don't know if anybody else has ever have, has ever figured that one out, but you know, something in a store that they love, that they loved to pamper themselves in the realm of their flair, but also spending time together. And I think this is true for all of 'em, but really Leo's like the attention to be really reflected back cuz they give so much.

[00:21:11] And so to be really appreciated with words and like reflection back of, of the light returned.

[00:21:18] Amanda: I just love that this. Distinction you just made about Leo, how the, the reason why they need the appreciation back is because they give so much. That's such an amazing thing to understand about a Leo.

[00:21:32] It's not like they just need all this admiration and appreciation because they're narcissistic or something. You know the is because there is so much that goes out. They just need to like get the light replenished back by. The people that they love. Exactly.

[00:21:48] Shannon: Absolutely. Yeah. Okay, Virgo, um, well, you know, you could get a daily planner or something to help them with their organization, but as a Virgo, I think encouraging them to clock out would be good.

[00:22:00] So a massage, you know, and I would say the same thing for Capricorn too. You know, the ones that are just the doers and the workers and behind the scenes and hammering things out, you know, and really just saying, you know what, you're taking the day off and just sending them on their way There. Uh, Libra.

[00:22:16] So, you know, not so different than Taurus, but I think art also massage. Anything sensual flowers, anything of beauty. Scorpio, you know, this was one I had a little bit more challenge with. I. And I think it's because, you know, Scorpio's all about like, you know, letting go of everything, you know, so when Taurus is like, you know, all the things we want and we love, and Scorpio's like, let's let it all go.

[00:22:40] But what I came up was a dark chocolate, red roses and a mystery novel. Open to suggestions on that

[00:22:47] Amanda: one. What about, uh, what about setting time aside for a really deep conversation? Deep. Like, it's just like, like that quality time element of like, let's just like have time to sort of, um, be together and explore depths

[00:23:08] Shannon: together.

[00:23:08] Yeah. Yeah. Go deeper than the normal mundane Yeah. Way relating Right. Really something soulful. Maybe something healing would come out of it, right? Yeah. Yeah. That's great. Okay. Sagittarius. I thought of like an a day of adventure, taking a little day trip or something and maybe going to a, I don't know, a trip in the country and going to a little quaint place to eat something different, something new outside of the, the normal, mundane, maybe antique shopping or something like that.

[00:23:36] But something in the realm of adventure for Sagittarius, of course. Capricorn. Like I said, you know, there's many things that could make the job easier, but I think that that just is encouraging more of the work and so, so encouraging them to take that the day off. So I would also say a massage, something of that nature.

[00:23:56] Um, some body work, they're usually like really, you know, Very physical in whatever they're doing. What about you? Well,

[00:24:06] Amanda: I'm like, as a Capricorn, I must just chime in. Um, yes, absolutely. As long as the work is being taken care of. So for example, I would think if my daughters were like, take the day off. But then, but then they were like, and we're going to do the dishes and make sure the house is clean and make sure you know everything, like dinner's, pre prepared and all that.

[00:24:29] Because otherwise you would just be feeling, you would just be thinking about all the work that you need to do. Yeah. Oh yeah.

[00:24:34] Shannon: I, I second that for Virgo because my mind would be going, well, who's gonna take care of all the things? I'm gonna come home and have to work twice as hard. Exactly.

[00:24:41] Amanda: Like, it's like this, like mixed, it's like, yes, I have some time off, but like, it really just doubled and, and, uh, prolonged all the work that needs to be done later.

[00:24:50] Yes. Right, right. No man. I know. Gosh. How like practical and mundane. Can we sound? I know, right? Yeah. Okay.

[00:24:59] Shannon: Aquarius, uh, some eccentric art piece by a local artist. This is where I said an astrology reading. I also have astrology reading for Pisces. I mean, any sign could benefit from an astrology reading, but these are the two that I really highlighted for that.

[00:25:15] And then Pisces, you know, to appeal to their, their dream, you know, realm and their creative side of ballet or going to the theater. Anything sort of like to escape from the, the mundane reality.

[00:25:31] Amanda: I. I was thinking that an astrology reading could also be good for the Scorpio, where we were a little stumped because that, especially one with an evolutionary astrologer like you, Shannon, where they could go into the depths and really explore those aspects of themselves.

[00:25:46] Shannon: Yes, yes. And some Scorpios like to keep those doors shut. True. That's true.

[00:25:52] Amanda: That's right. What is the, what is the key for Scorpio though, in that, from that pers, because most of the Scorpios, I know, obviously I'm in a more intimate relationship with them, so maybe they're com more comfortable exploring depths with me, but what is the key factor for whether or not they're gonna wanna go deep with someone?

[00:26:14] Shannon: That's tough. I mean, I think that part of the reason why there's. Apprehension is because I see the Scorpio as like the ruler of the underworld. It's like, you don't wanna just frivolously open these doorways with just anyone. Yeah. You know, and if they've spent their life trying to sort of like, manage intensity, it's not like they wanna go knocking on the door, you know?

[00:26:35] Yeah. So, um, yeah, that's kind of my take on that. And, and I think that they, they, they go into the process, but usually it's life forcing them. It's like an one thing, you know, after this, this, these, these dissents or these initiations, you know, when Pluto comes to town, you can't miss it. That is very

[00:26:58] Amanda: true.

[00:26:58] That is very true.

Advice for Deeper Maternal Connections

[00:26:59] Amanda: Alright, so to wrap this up, what is one piece of advice. That you would give listeners to help them connect with their mothers, um, on a deeper level using astrology and or mm-hmm. One piece of advice for mothers who want to use astrology to show up better as in that role in their life.

[00:27:27] Shannon: Hmm. Well, I think I'm, I touched on it before, I think. You know, if we can see through the eyes of compassion and that we are on this journey of evolution and we're healing our maternal line and our paternal line, we're healing as a humanity. We're coming out of thousands of years of, amnesia and being, subject to a lot of forces that were greater than us.

[00:27:58] And so, To depersonalize, which is funny when we're talking about the moon, cuz the moon is very personal, right? It's like we have our personal experience, but I think that from the highest perspective and sort of where we're being drawn into with this new age and Aquarius is like to come out of that sort of unconscious emotional realm of where we can fall into.

[00:28:22] Blame and victimization to of our parents, you know, did this to us and that, and while there's truth to the process of whatever the experience is, it actually was integral to opening the doorway for healing, which is part of the, is the other side of the awakening. So if we can see it with a little bit of a detachment, which is this aquarium, you know, moving into the higher mind, out of the emotional waters.

[00:28:48] Then we can understand the equation of the chart and be like, oh, you know, this, my mother had this happen to her and she didn't have this and this is what she needs. And then same for ourselves. Like, you know, I need connection and I need depth and I need balance, and then I can be a better mother and then I can look at my children's charts and their moon and what they need.

[00:29:11] It's always intense to look at your children's charts and see how they see you. Scorpion Aries. I'm like, oh, great.

[00:29:19] Amanda: My gosh is so true. Wow. I think my, my daughter Madeline, or one of 'em has, um, Saturn Square the moon. And so there's this, you know, and, and it's like, oh gosh.
