Emily Dickinson- Poetess. Born December 10, 1830. Amherst, Massachusetts
1. Rising Sign: Scorpio
One’s Rising Sign (or ascendant) is the sign that was rising when a person was born and reflects their persona, or how they present themselves to the world.
“I’m nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there’s a pair of us — don’t tell!
They’d banish us, you know.How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!”- Emily Dickinson
Rising Scorpios exist in a world of black and white. An intensity seethes under the surface and their will is indomitable. Often quiet, they prefer to work behind the scenes where nothing goes unnoticed by them. Very perceptive, they always see through pretense. A cool facade hides a deeply passionate nature. When they love, they love fully; and when angered they can be surprisingly cruel for they easily see their victim’s soft spot. Strongly loyal, they never forget a kindness or an insult. Intuitive, sensitive, and suspicious- they have a deep-rooted need for privacy, and are loners at heart. Possessing remarkable recuperative powers, and being very patient, they continue going after most have faltered. Creative and clever, they often embrace the dark side of life and explore it in artistic ways.
2. Sun Sign: Sagittarius:
One’s sun sign denotes their outer, general personality
“Much madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye;
Much sense the starkest madness.
’T is the majority
In this, as all, prevails.
Assent, and you are sane;
Demur,—you ’re straightway dangerous,
And handled with a chain.” – Emily Dickinson
Sun Sagittariuns are restless and independent. They cannot be held down to routine or to the will of another. They have a thirst for knowledge and their life is spent in the pursuit of mental exploration. Straight forward and seekers of truth, they are frank and honest in their dealings with people. At times their bluntness may accidently offend which is not their intention. They are open-minded and endlessly fascinated about the world around them. Optimistic and cheerful, there is a sense of childlike play about them.
3. Moon in Libra
The Moon sign denotes one’s inner, hidden personality
“I died for beauty but was scarce
Adjusted in the tomb,
When one who died for truth was lain
In an adjoining room.
He questioned softly why I failed?
“For beauty,” I replied.
“And I for truth, the two are one;
We brethren are,” he said.
And so, as kinsmen met a night,
We talked between the rooms,
Until the moss had reached our lips,
And covered up our names.” – Emily Dickinson
Those with Moon in Libra possess a charming quality. Graceful and elegant, they have high aesthetic standards. Fair-minded, they have an inherent need to be in peaceful surroundings and will use their strong diplomatic abilities to accomplish such an ideal. Artistic, they have a natural eye and ear for harmony. Caring and affectionate, they often form life-long friendships. Deeply romantic, they see themselves reflected in the person they love. An inherent need to be in a relationship may cause clinginess and jealousy at times.
