In you opinion, who do you think had the toughest childhood in terms of placements or signs?
What comes to mind are malefics in the 4th/10th house axis primarily, as well as an afflicted sun and moon. Interceptions, which show what was missing in development. There is a dark side to every moon that affects the upbringing of all, for instance an Aries moon child can feel as though they’re always fighting or surviving rather than living. The Scorpio moon child too if not more so, the mars in these two lives off of survival instincts and with Scorpio moon, the emotions are more raw, potent and overwhelming. Capricorn moon children can be surrounded by confining matters, overbearing figures and posses “I’m a failure” thought process due to having high standards pushed on them. A Virgo moon child can feel like they’re always being criticized by the guardian figures, little adults as children. The conflicts of oppositions and squares show from childhood and on, someone with mars square Venus could have felt unloved as a child by the mother or Saturn square sun can have a crippling and insecure mentality of themselves from a young age. I also think of planets in the 12th; suppression, sacrifice and dissolving of a planets energy. The ascendant is our persona, outlook of the world, shows the early life, and is a mask we can never take off and so malefics in the first can be overbearing to a person.
