Finding your Astrological Truth

September 28, 2020 Author Debra DeLeo-Moolenaar

In order to find your ‘truth’, you need to look to all the squares and oppositions in your natal chart because although they represent energies that have been somehow squashed, they remain essential for you to be your best.

For example, in my own chart, my 'truth' is to do with integrating Libra and Capricorn, which, because they are in square aspect (rather like hitting a brick wall), won’t be easy.

The best way to accomplish this is to make a list of the most positive points of both Libra and Capricorn and concentrate on where they overlap.


  • loves people but hate large crowds,
  • is extremely intelligent,
  • may love to talk – but also makes an excellent listener,
  • may rush about for many months in frenzied activity – then suddenly stop – sit down – do very little (i.e. be lazy) for what may seem like a very long time,
  • is kind, gentle, and fair although they are prone to being argumentative, stubborn and indecisive,
  • doesn't really care which side of a good argument they take as long as it’s the ‘other side’,
  • makes good strategists (rational/logical minds),
  • hates embarrassing displays of anger/passion,
  • is both responsible and dependable.


  • is persistent and determined – like in Aesop’s fable about the race between the tortoise and the hare – speed and agility is not what it takes  in order to win,
  • is ambitious – serious and sensible – disciplined, too,
  • respects authority and tradition,
  • learns his lessons the hard way – but the point is that Capricorn does learn,
  • has an innate sense of balance and harmony,
  • hates emotional/passionate scenes,
  • is both responsible and dependable.


I’m beginning to see a pattern here – aren’t you?

  • Balance & harmony
  • Responsible & dependable
  • Strategic
  • Don’t race forward – but do keep going.
  • Stubborn persistence wins the day.
  • Avoid messy emotions – not the least of which, my own.

Now the question comes – what am I to do with all this?

I need to get strategic  – stop whinging and get moving. It is a determined, fair, sensible, and traditional approach that will win the day. Doubtless this has to with both with getting my novels published.  I will not accomplish this feat overnight but in the end, I will prevail.

What patterns and traits do you need to integrate to become the best that you can be?
