MOON in Capricorn in the 2nd
Darwin came out of the womb in mourning. The root of his grief was linked with the trauma that his family, in particular his children, endured and the fact that he was the source of this trauma, South Node in Taurus squaring Chiron in Aquarius, ruler Uranus is station and conjunct the North Node in Scorpio suggesting he has been trying to re-enter this pool of pain, to take responsibility for the trauma he caused others he dearly loved in an attempt to heal the past, Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn balsamic to Neptune in Sag in the 12th . Beyond the grief, it was the guilt that chained his heart and his Soul. He would have spent past lives in monasteries or in isolation repenting. He would have also spent lifetimes hiding behind not only his work but in families in more formal cultures where emotions were not embraced or discussed in order to safely repress and avoid the memories. The sheer weight of the grief and the guilt as well the sense of responsibility he carried can be seen with the South Nodes of Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Venus and Vesta and Mercury all in Capricorn conjunct his Moon.
With a 2nd House Cap Moon he was learning not only lessons in personal survival and thus his ground breaking research and discovery of the survival of the species, this signatures also reflects a Soul who was needing to support his own survival, as he would have not been nurtured nearly enough in the way that a child needs, feeling emotionally alone much of the time and literally on his own without a mother by the age of 8. Not only did he lose his mother when he was young, she had him when she was in her 40's and was not healthy for most of Darwin’s life. With Aries on the 4th house cusp conjunct Vesta in Aries opposing Mars in Libra in combination, this would create an environment where he was forced to become independent right out of the gates, learning to emotionally take care of himself from as early as he can remember, he would soon realize this need to self provide in every way. Darwin did not have much of a childhood to speak of, he came out already a man, a man with deep penetrating anguish and grief, Moon in Cap, still grieving for not only the trauma of the past but where he had truly fallen short. One other reason he pulled in this emotionless mother beyond the fact that he himself wanted to avoid the sea of pain is that he felt that he did not deserve love because of the guilt that he carried from being a parent in the past, not being there for his children in times of critical need. He was too self absorbed and self focused in the past, per-occupied with his own work and personal pursuits unaware of the true needs of others around him, in particular his children, South Node in the 5th in Taurus, ruler, Venus in Aries, opposing Mars in the 10th. The guilt he carried forward is due to this lack of presence and the true narcissism that his needs and creative pursuits were more important than anything else, leading to the rug being pulled from underneath him, to shock his Soul so the pendulum would swing to establish more balance surrounding his responsibilities to his children. He has carried this energy of never being able to forgive himself for lifetimes for his lack of presence due to his self absorption. A metaphor for such a tragedy would be his family being asleep while he carelessly kept candles or an unattended fire burning while working late, he takes a walk, the house catches fire, the children parish and he survives. The bottom line was his pre-occupation with himself and his work. South Node in the 5th, ruler Venus in Aries in the 3rd opposing Mars in Libra in the 10th, squaring Moon in Cap in the 2nd. One minute he had everything and the next moment he lost it all. This trauma may have also extended beyond his own immediate family, involving extended family and others in his community or tribe seen in the Aquarian signature, Chiron in Aquarius square the Nodes, Uranus in Scorpio conjunct the North Noe in the 11th.
Darwin was forced to grow up young and fast with consistent, cold lessons in self reliance and rigid rules along the way reflected in the Moon in Cap in the 2nd. He was raised in a wealthy proper family in traditional England whose father was a well known society doctor and financier, his mother was from the famous Wedgewood pottery family, South Node in Taurus and Moon in Cap in the second house. He undoubtedly was raised to keep his emotions in check and to hold back the tears when they bubbled deep beneath the surface, showing a sign of strength and control. As a result throughout his life these repressed emotions would have created an inner pressure and an added sense of loneliness with no one to share his deepest emotional currents with. This is similar also to his emotional body being a deserted island out in the middle of the sea with nothing but water beneath and surrounding him, Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn in Sag balsalmic to Neptune in the 12th house, held captive by the weight of their hold. There was vast emotion present yet it was kept separate, guarded and hidden from the world as for Darwin the sea was too dark and to scary to enter. Darwin chose to be born into an environment where he would have the imprint an emotionless childhood, pulling in parents that were not only reserved and repressed emotionally themselves but also not at all emotionally available. This would mean he would not need to be forced to access his own inner emotional abyss of pain, anger and guilt. He could build a wall keeping himself separate from the past and all that these emotions reflect.
He was considered to be a solitary child who often took long walks alone exploring and often loved telling make-believes stories with immense fabrication to his family during gatherings, Moon in Cap in the 2nd, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th balsalmic to Neptune. He used story telling to keep his emotional and imaginary gates open, in order to allow whatever was humanly possible to filter in and to integrate what he was feeling but could not openly express. He would create make believe stories which would have involved characters that were fragments of him self. He was often asking the question why, why this and why not that for this questioning would lead to greater inner grounding, also this need for proof would serve to create greater inner balance when the answers came. Of course Darwin was always looking to the next horizon so emotionally was weighted down most of the time with the realm of possibilities of unanswered questions, those that also challenged his need for a supernatural creator, that filled his heart and mind. The Moon in Cap in the 2nd would be forced to feel through and examine the more practical and realistic avenues for truth as the miracle maker that was written about in formal texts had let him down more than once. The end of this fantasy would serve to contribute to his grief and mourning. The Moon in Cap here represents in the past that Darwin in many lifetimes was brought back to earth, back to reality that God was not a man on a throne and the traumas of loss created a great anger at God for not saving his children or loved ones. Also a guilt not only at himself for feeling responsible in some way for what had occurred, ultimately he became progressively disillusioned in greater degrees with each lifetime, Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn in Sag balsalmic to Neptune in the 12th, all culminating in this life with the tragic loss of his favorite child. The anger at not only himself, but at God and at authority figures which would have included false teachers is also seen with the Moon in Cap squaring Mars in Libra in the 10th opposing Venus, ruler of the South Node. If he stays within his own closed box then he would not have to deal the pain of all that once was pure and true and yet would never be the same again, because of his actions and choices.
Darwin was surrounded by massive religious influence, the Church of England and Unitarian on his mother’s side- the ruler of the Moon in Cap is Saturn in Sag balsalmic to Neptune in Sag in the 12th. However it was the ideas of his grandfathers that laid the foundation for his later career as they were free thinking rationalists and humanists who challenged conventional thought in philosophy, politics, religion and science. There were also very interested in invention and did not set any limits for themselves, for example at the time they imagined air travel which people thoughts was totally crazy and yet it ultimately occurred. You can see this also reflected in the Moon in Cap in the 2nd, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th trining Venus in Aries, the ruler of his South Node. Also with the ruler of his Sun in Aquarius being conjunct the North Node in Scorpio in the 11th, grandfathers who challenged consensus thinking. There may have been some spiritual breathing space as Unitarian is a form of religion, but more progressive for the time as it celebrates a diversity of belief - A free and responsible search for truth and meaning. However there was plenty of the ‘us versus them mentality’, the religious dividing lines that breeds intolerance between people, projections and judgment of others of their beliefs. Darwin would have also felt these same projections and judgements within his family of origin, Moon in Cap square Mars in Libra in the 10th opposing Venus in Aries, ruler of his South Node in Taurus. Darwin's submergence into a family and societal setting such as this is due in part with that fact that we pick up where we left off and he was int he process of culminating lifetimes of old patriarchal relations and consensus religious influences within that. These connections culminating from the past can be seen with the ruler of the Moon in Cap being Saturn in Sag making a balsalmic conjunction to Neptune in the 12th. His father and possibly his grandfather could have been higher ups in the various churches where Darwin may have been a monk or part of the clergy. Also it takes an extreme to counteract an extreme so in order for Darwin to experience his natural beliefs connect with his own inner rhythms it takes interfacing with all that you are naturally not. This extreme will force any Soul back into a better balance. His Moon in cap is squaring Mars in Libra, ruler is Venus in Aries which rules the South Node. In the proceed this would allow him to culminate lifetimes of relationships with people who represented his running and hiding from his emotional body.
His father had high societal expectations of him , Mars in Libra in the 10th squaring his Cap Moon in the 2nd, wanted him to also become a doctor sending him to the prestigious Cambridge University but his father became annoyed with him went he slipped on his studies as Darwin eventually rebelled, Moon in Cap square Mars in Libra in the 10th, going against his father’s wishes as his heart was in the study of natural history and the laws of nature. Darwin harbored great anger with the father and there were plenty of things that he wished to say but held his tongue as he felt the father’s control, judgments and expectations that were crushing, Moon in Cap in the 2nd , squaring Mars in Libra in the 10th, opposing Venus in Aries in the 3rd, the ruler of the South Node. This extreme in what his father wanted for him and what he needed for himself would also serve to mirror the extreme of consensus expectation that he himself had also collected in his own Soul over time. He had fallen prey to the niceties that a fine existence offered in other times, and the recognition from society due to accomplishments from these ambitious pursuits that society revered as respectable. He would interface with this truth that these following what society or his father wanted for him never got him anywhere, that it only slowed him down. With South Node in the 5th in Taurus and a Moon in Cap reflects him falling for the traditional temptations of being born a life of privileged but that there is a limit to anything and he would realize this luxury never filled him up, it only made him experience more emptiness. No matter how many accolades, accomplishments or fine bottles of wine he tasted, they would quickly be replaced with the feeling of wanting more, of what's next The Moon in Cap in the 2nd reflects him reaching the proverbial limit of the material world and his need now to bust past this place, North Node in Scorpio conjunct Uranus, to find MEANING in the truth of creation and in his connection to all those things he cannot touch or see. We know in this signature that there have been attempts in the past to liberate from the old patterns but he never quite got there, for the groove in the record was too deep.
In 1831, by the age of 22, his home, became a boat, when he had a once in a lifetime opportunity to travel the world, a grand sea-going adventure, Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th balsalmic to Neptune. In 1835 he spent time in the Galapagos, and it was his findings while at home in the Galopogos that later led to his theory of natural selection. Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th, an island in the middle of the sea. Also in researching the geodedics of this location, the Galopogos by location is 29 Cap, which conjuncts his Moon in Capricorn in the 2nd, ruler Saturn in Sag balsalmic to Neptune in the 12th in Sag. It was the findings in this location, a temporary home, that allowed him to later over time, Moon in Cap, put his research on the map. On a personal level, his Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th would reflect this international traveling being a reflection of the ongoing running and hiding from his emotional prison of secrets.
Darwin had a two prong focus: His identity and sense of self was totally linked with his life’s work - Discovery, documentation and dissemination of natural laws. This can be seen with a Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn balsalmic to Neptune, ruler of his Pluto in Pisces. The second prong was being a devoted family man however emotionally balancing the two main priorities was his Achilles Heel and had been for lifetimes, Moon IN Cap square Mars in Libra in the 10th, opposing Venus in Aries, ruler of the South Node.
With Pluto in Pisces, and the ruler Neptune baslamic to Saturn in the 12th, Saturn being the ruler of his Moon in Cap, he also chose this Moon to allow him to stay grounded versus having his wild imagination flying around in the clouds and never being brought into sensible form. The Moon in Cap in the 2nd, ruler Saturn in Sag, gave him legs to bring his dreams down to earth and to carry his visions forward, and in this life, ultimately to carry many lifetimes of attempts to closure, The Moon’s ruler Saturn is balsalmic to Neptune, ruler his his Pluto, in the 12th house.
Moon in Cap in the 2nd also connects to a Soul who has a natural need to reflect about all things, for Darwin, the ruler is Saturn in Sag in the 12th balsalmic to Neptune, he would need to reflect about the Origin of all things and how his progressive scientific uncovering would effect his emotional reality and his own personal fears regarding survival for his family. How would their lives be effected as a result? Would he see them again when they die? This in turn would create a feeling of doom and gloom as the inevitable sat in the distance, for ‘grief waits for those who love’. Moon in Capricorn connects to his Soul embodying a seriousness and a depression that he couldn’t shake, this Moon in Cap would also lead to a high pressure that would persist in him for all of his living days and one that rendered him chronically sick and immuno-compromised.
This Soul has been shouldering immense responsibility as his Moon is not only in Capricorn but it is conjunct the South Nodes of Pluto, Saturn and Jupiter in Capricorn, this adding to his Soul’s need to take responsibility for what he has set in motion. Beyond the trauma he was responsible for creating, he would have experienced great trauma and a true lack of acceptance for his research and findings in the past as this Moon in Cap squares Mars in the 10th house, Mars being the ruler of his Venus in Aries, which is the ruler of the South Node in Taurus in the 5th, Chiron in Aquarius also square the Nodes. The trauma however cannot get in the way of his Soul’s intended destiny for he knows from some other place within himself that he must carry this through. The emotional pressure for Darwin was immense and it fed most of his battles involving poor health, in particular his heart palpitations, South Node in the 5th, ruler Venus in Aries in the 3rd opposing Mars in the 10th in Libra which squares his second house Moon in Cap. Also with a stellium in Pisces it would create an immune system that was more naturally challenged by emotional stress and the outer environment. He carried the weight of the world on his heart and on his shoulders. It is the the emotional weight that can lead to the most challenging body and health woes. Darwin’s physical health was a direct result of his emotional dis-ease. The dis-ease reflects all that he has emotionally carried that he cannot let himself off the hook for. The Moon in Cap in the 2nd, ruler Saturn in Sag in the 12th balsamic to Neptune is about the NEED TO FORGIVE HIMSELF. to remove himself from his own inner prison and to understand that the only way to healing is to take responsibility for what has occurred but for it not to paralyze him from moving on. To know that the natural God wants him to release the hold of the past and be free. It does not mean to be free of the guilt for GUILT IS NATURAL to CONSCIOUSNESS and necessary for Darwin to always have this within him for it will keep him from recreating the past dynamics that have caused him so much suffering. It is the learned guilt that accumulates that can literally suffocate a Soul preventing any evolution at all. This in combination with the emotioanl repression will cause volumes of distortion and rage. Ultimately this is when evil wins. With Darwin's Lucifer in Virgo squaring Saturn in the 12th,the ruler of his Moon in Cap in Sag, considering evil parks itself wherever we are most vulnerable, it is the self defeating, self sacrificing, masochistic thoughts that has become Darwin own belief system about himself, one where he deserves this pain and punishment forever until eternity for all he has done in this past, where he was careless and too self consumed. This will make its way deeply in to the physical corners of his body, in particular his heart, South Node in the 5th rooting itself there for all the negative emotions to feed upon. Even wallowing in his own grief was a form of self indulging in his pain from the loss of his favorite daughter. Following her death he was incapable of being the father his other children needed. He was unable to love and nurture them, causing trauma for them and re-igniting his own grief and guilt from the massive trauma that occurred in the past. This would also prove to feed the guilt as he would be unable to follow through on this parental priorities in a balanced way.
Darwin married his cousin which can be seen with his South Node in Taurus, ruler Venus in Aries in the 3rd, inconjunct his North Node and Uranus. Venus, the South Node ruler also opposes Mars in Libra which square the Moon in Cap. Obviously this was not a traditional choice and the extended family signature can be seen with the North Node in 11th in Scorpio conjunct Uranus, not only because it was not the norm, but the Aquarian, Uranian archetype connects to extended family. Also with the ruler of the South Node, being Venus in Aries, opposing Mars in Libra and squaring the Moon in Cap, this can be sexual relations with someone like a sibling, someone within the family bloodline. Darwin chose this partner because her Soul knew all of his secret and was part of his part with respect to these traumas that brought hims such grief. She saw him for who he was and she loved him at his worst and so she was the safest bet. Moon in Cap, ruler Saturn balsalmic to Neptune in the 12th. Also the sign on the 7th is Gemini, ruler Mercury in Pisces in the 3rd which is balsalmic to Pluto in Pisces and squares the ruler Neptune as well as Saturn, the ruler of his Moon in Cap, reflects the partner who is like a sibling and who knows his secrets. She is also wanting to put this theme to rest and is committed to the culmination of this repeating theme of trauma as well as committed to helping him culminate his destined body of work.
“How paramount the future is to the present when one is surrounded by children."
The Darwin’s had ten children, two died in infancy. The abundant family can be seen with the ruler of his Moon in Cap being Saturn in Sagittarius in the 12th balsalmic to Neptune, which also reflects the loss of children. Moon in Cap describes the true weight of the grief he has carried for loss of family not only in this lifetime but in others and for his own experience of disillusionment surrounding death, in particular children. Chiron in Aquarius squares his nodes and the ruler is conjunct the North Node, suggesting this not only occurred in this life but it has been a theme of heartbreak for him more than once. His need Moon in Cap in the 2nd to father that many children was his Soul's attempt to make up for the past, to nurture well and to take care of as many children as possible as this ambitious approach to parenting would become the true TEST, Moon in Cap, when his favorite child dies. Darwin has moon in Cap in the 2nd also as a TEST for all that came before, a test to be present at all costs but the trauma would test his ability to nurture the other children in unforeseen ways.
Darwin’s favorite daughter, Annie, passed when she was only 10 . “ "Anne was the apple of her proud father's eye, his favorite child, he confessed to" [his friend and cousin William Darwin] Fox. "More than any of the other children she treated him with a spontaneous affection that touched him deeply; she liked to smooth his hair and pat his clothes into shape, and was by nature self-absorbedly neat and tidy, cutting out delicate bits of paper to put away in her workbox, threading ribbons, and sewing small things for her dolls and make-believe worlds." This spontaneous affection would have been the secret ingredient needed to bring his Cap walls down, it worked like magic, ruler of his Moon in Cap being Saturn in Sag balsalmic to Neptune in the 12th which trines Venus in Aries, the ruler of his South Node.
Annie’s Mars was conjunct Darwin’s Uranus and North Node in Scorpio, she being the trigger for the trauma but also for what would prove to be the shock his Soul needed to open up to the larger picture of life after death. To force his own Soul from its perceived limits, Moon in Cap in the 2nd,to see the whole of all things, including life, death and the hereafter. They undoubtedly had a Soul contract coming into this life, knowing it would take some sort of cataclysm, North Node in Scorpio, conjunct Uranus in Scorpio to accelerate his evolution and in order to bring his ground breaking work to the planet.? Also because as we pick up where we left off, if he was not able to finish his work in prior lives due to the trauma, he would be forced to experience this again with the intent to prevail no matter what. Annie could help him on the other side. She would be a continuous reminder of life after death and to teach and remind him that in the end nothing ever really dies, that we must lose our attachment to the physical, Moon in Cap square Mars in Libra, pushing beyond the limits of our own container. The Soul contract can be seen with their Composite Saturn in Sag making an exact trine to Venus in Aries conjunct North Node of Mars in Aries. Also Their Composite South Node of Uranus is conjunct this Saturn, natal Uranus is in Cap conjunct Neptune, suggesting the trauma in this life with respect to her loss had been a theme from the past.
Annie may have proven to be his greatest teacher in this unveiling of the other side offering a window into another dimension, one that is very much alive and connected to the here and now. Darwin's South Node is in Taurus in the 5th, ruler Venus in Aries and this trines his Saturn, ruler of his Moon, the Saturn being balsalmic to Neptune, the ruler of his Pluto in Pisces, and they are both in the 12th. The loss of Annie became the self fulfilling prophecy reflected in the negative thought patterns set in motions lifetimes ago, that he deserved the cruelest form of punishment for his parental neglect. This self fulfilling prophecy linked with his feelings that he deserved repeated trauma also due to the inner FEAR of this repeating, is seen with the Moon in Cap squaring Mars in Libra, opposing ruler Venus in Aries, ruler of the South Node. Also the ruler of his Moon in Cap, Saturn, squaring Lucifer in Virgo, that he deserved the ultimate punishment, the loss of his most cherished child.
"We have lost the joy of the household, and the solace of our old age” Darwin
Darwin felt responsible for her death in some way and carried tremendous guilt as a result. In 1849, Anne caught scarlet fever and her health declined; some authorities believe that she suffered from tuberculosis. In vain pursuit of help from Gully's water cure, which failed to save her, she died. This devastated Charles. The guilt and grief carried forward to his grave can be seen with the Moon in Cap in the second, ruler Saturn balsalmic to Neptune in Sag in the 12th, a signature for the rivers of tears for the family loss and in some way feeling responsible, pinning her exit on these emotions of guilt that he didn’t do enough. Irrational emotions kept the wound wet and open for the remainder of his living days. With Uranus station on the North Node, Uranus being the ruler of Chiron which squares the Nodes but also the ruler of the Sun, in the second which is balsalmic to his Moon in Cap, he would be re-living the very same types of traumas which had caused his Soul to freeze, in order to evolve beyond them, this due to his Moon in Cap lessons in responsibility for all the relationships in his life in-particular his children.
In patriarchal myth, Lilith has been given some harsh names, one of which is her being labeled baby killer. Of course in her pure undistorted form she is powerful beyond measure, the embodiment of a self reliant, independent wild alluring woman. Her being given the name seductress and baby killer only came after she refused to submit to male patriarchal dominance. Her rage at these expectations warped with natural injustice ignited a vengeance in her in defense of her right to be free and to have equality, this led her down roads of distortion. Darwin’s Lilith is conjunct his South Node in his 5th while making a T square to Chiron in Aquarius in the 2nd as well as his Moon in Cap, and squaring Dark Moon Lilith in the 8th on the other side, reflecting the darkest shadow of this symbol and the loss of his 'baibies'
With a mind and consciousness like Darwin’s, he would feel alone a great deal of the time even when surrounded by people and he would feel as if no one truly understood his inner world. This was how Darwin preferred it to be for he did not want anyone to know who he was, there were too many deep dark secrets that he himself could not face or live with, so not only did he shut himself off from the world he emotionally shut himself off from himself. It would take his favorite child dying, and connecting with him from the astral realm in a place, that was far from the landscapes of his mind, perhaps only there would he truly feel met, touched and forgiven. Annie's Mars was not only in Scorpio on his North Node and Uranus in the 11th, astral plane, but her Pallas and her North Node were in Aquarius conjunct his Sun in Aquarius, she being the messenger from the astral realm. Her Sun and Uranus were also conjunct his Pluto in the 3rd house and these symbols trine his North Node and Uranus.
Jeffrey shared in his write-up on the plenary method that there is a dark side of the moon that people never see, reflecting the insecurity within. With respect to Darwin this dark side of his Moon in Cap is the grief that was strapped to his Soul, and the guilt for his role in the trauma created for his beloved children, this will haunt him for eternity.
It also involves his imaginary world where he is visited by his daughter Annie from the other side, a world that is real beyond real to him, and yet others experienced him as hallucinating and spending far too much time in a world they can only understand as escape. It would be in this shadow, in this darkness, where only in death that a light would be found. He would recover more Soul security as he explored the dimensions that transcended space and time with the help of his invisible teacher and friend, Annie.
With the Moon symbolizing that which represents the evolving ego and how we integrate the insecurity of the past, you can see with a South Node in Taurus receiving the square from Chiron in Aquarius, that the trauma of the past caused him to freeze and fracture but with the Moon in Cap in the 2nd and the ruler Saturn trining Venus, the ruler of the South Node, he chose a Moon placement that would guarantee he would persevere, persist and press on. This weight of responsibility for what he was designed to bring forward would have also have been a true burden as it was so massive and timeless in nature. One man and one journey would change the world, Moon in Cap in the 2nd house, ruler Saturn balsalmic to Neptune, also Moon in Cap squaring Mars in Libra in the 10th opposing Venus. One man, one journey in fact was responsible for changing the world. That was an unfathomable burden to bear.
“A scientific man ought to have no wishes, no affections, - a mere heart of stone." (Darwin)
This sentiment would not be true however as for his Moon or ego to evolve, for his Soul to evolve, we not only look to the North Node in Scorpio, which reflects the deepest of depths, but we look to the Moon’s polarity, and not only find Cancer in the 8th, it is conjunct the North Node of Saturn and North Node of Pluto. It would take him 'time’ to emotionally soften and warm up to anything but eventually in order for him to evolve, it must happen. This evolving polarity also reflects the cataclysm that would force him into his emotional body, in particular the death of his daughter Annie, Cancer on the 8th house cusp, ruler Moon in Cap in the 2nd that would ignite the trauma of this past that he was responsible for connecting to the loss of many children.
With the Moon in Cap balsalmic to the Sun in Aquarius, the Sun in Aquarius allowed him to detach just enough to finish his Soul’s work for the world as this Sun is receiving a trine from Mars in Libra in the 10th, suggesting there will be enough energy and emotional focus in him to culminate this repeating circuit of paralyzing loss and to close this Soul chapter. Also Darwin's Moon in Cap is making a Last Quarter septile, 51 degrees, other wise known as a fate aspect, to his Pluto in Pisces in the 3rd which reflects the fate of the death of his daughter and his communications with her, her visits from the other side and his experience serving as a bridge from Earth to the timeless, unseen, invisible world with the intention to help heal his wounded heart. This re-immersion into the emotional waters after attempting to hold it all up or back for lifetimes would allow Darwin to evolve, as the river always finds the path of least resistance, via the natural water trinity, Moon - Pluto -Neptune, the river always finds its way back to the sea, back to God.
With Pluto in the 3rd in Pisces, ruler Neptune balsamic to Saturn in Sag in the 12th, Saturn being the ruler of his Moon in Cap in the 2nd, it has been said by historians that even with all the research that has been done on Darwin’s life and story to date, and as much as we have have uncovered and will further uncover here, Darwin, the man, is an ENIGMA, with guarded Moon in Capricorn and a North Node in Scorpio in the 11th, Pluto in Pisces, ruler Neptune conjunct Saturn in the 12th, I am sure that is how he would like it to remain.
