Moon/IC Aspects



Living a sheltered life. Living in a secluded area. Living with your parents into adulthood. Running home to your parents when plans go south. Needing a lot of care and support from your parents. The pampered child. Expecting to have a cushy place to land if plans in the real world don’t work out. Finding it hard to push yourself to be more independent. Tendency to rely on your family for a career boost. Maybe expecting your parents to find you a job rather than doing it for yourself. Being devastated if your parents were not able to care for you the way you longed to be cared for. Learning how to fill your own emotional voids.

Having a deep sense of loss from leaving your childhood home. There’s no place like home. Having a deep sense of loss if you lose, sell, or move from a cherished residence. Longing to find that place where you truly fit in. Needing to have blood relatives or people you hold dear who feel like family. Needing a family or family-like connection with other people. Needing to have some people in your life who you can trust and pour your heart out to. Becoming dependent on that shoulder to lean on. Looking forward to purging emotions rather than doing something concrete to solve emotional issues. Creating patterns and cycles of dependency with others. Becoming stuck in habitual responses. Not being able to gain enough distance from negative emotional patterns to break them.

Too sensitive to childhood influences. Fears that have carried over from childhood. Wanting to hide away with your feelings. The vulnerable person. A victim. Blaming feelings on others. Inability to take responsibility for your personal feelings. Keeping feelings secret rather than sharing them with the world. Not wanting anyone to know how you really feel. Needing privacy to shed tears. Crying at home. Feeling sorry for yourself once behind closed doors. It’s difficult for you to break bad habits. Your private behavior is strongly habitual. Motivations are tied to emotional responses. Instincts are strong. The ability to feel the undercurrent in situations can be overwhelming and make you want to retreat to safety. The talent for picking up on unspoken communications.

You need to feel safe and secure in your house and with the people you live with. You need privacy. Intrusions into your living space are not tolerated. People need your permission to enter your home or personal living area. Your house is your domain. You like being surrounded by people who have same level of emotional comfort as you. You like people who can let down their guard. Your home is your comfort zone. However shy you may be out in the world, you let your true feelings show when you walk through your front door. Your home life greatly impacts your mood. You can have a hard time not letting personal issues color your work life. You tend to feel comfortable with, and nourished and supported by, women.

A long hot soak works to wash away the cares of the world. Your home reflects your inner emotional state. Look at around at your decor and reflect on what it is reflecting about your emotions. You are able to tune into the vibrations of a home. You can easily get a feel for the people who live in a place. You might have an interest in Feng Shui or Vastu Shastra. The way that things are arranged, or not arranged, in your living space is important to you.

Planets in aspect to the MC (Medium Coeli), or Midheaven, are also always in aspect to the IC (Imum Coeli). Posts are split up between MC and IC to show the different point of view that each of the angles brings to the natal chart. To learn about the flip-side of Moon/IC, read Moon/Midheaven Aspects.

I’m Michelle and I have an Aries Sun, Leo Moon & Virgo rising.

    Uh, WOW. I can’t believe how accurate this article is! I had NO idea how strong of an influence the IC has on me. Or any of the other angles; most astrology guides just don’t explain them all that deeply. You nailed it with “Having a deep sense of loss from leaving your childhood home. There’s no place like home.” I’m not afraid to admit that my parents had to practically shove me out of the nest at 19, haha. And I’ve been trying to recreate the same sense of security, stability, comfort, innocence, abundance, freedom, and magic I had as a kid ever since. I have Moon in Libra in the 6th square IC in Cancer.

    • Katy Lalla

      PS I also have Saturn in Leo in the 4th, squaring both my Ascendant in Taurus and Descendant in Scorpio which is conjunct Uranus. Would I be correct in concluding that unwanted (but partially self-initiated) upheavals are quite common in my life?

      • With Uranus conjunct your descendant, upheavals in your love life could be common. With Saturn conjunct the IC, if you’re not already, then you have the capacity to establish a very very grounded sense of home within yourself that helps you weather an relationship storm.

    What would a Moon Sextile MC mean in regards to the IC aspect?

    • Positive flow and opportunities, but not necessarily a talent, like the trine can represent.

  • tatiana.larina

    Michelle, I don’t quite understand. If Charles Burchfield has a Moon in Capricorn opposite IC, then his IC has to be in Cancer. A typo maybe?

    • Yes, a typo! Should be Moon conjunct IC in Capricorn … going to fix now! Thank you 🙂
