Understanding Your Moon Sign
5 months ago
Each planetary placement in our birth chart tells a story about who we are and how we react to the world around us. When it comes to popular astrology, the big three, or the Sun, Moon, and Rising signs, tell a great deal of our story. The Moon sign, represented by a crescent moon on a birth chart, is determined by the Moon’s location at our time of birth and whatever sign the Moon was in at that time. It shares information about our emotions, intuition, and what we may need in this lifetime.
How to Find Your Moon Sign
A quick Google search can find you a plethora of astrology sites where you can input your information to pull up your full birth or natal chart. To receive the best results when determining your Moon sign, it’s important that you have your birth date, time of birth (as accurate as possible), and the location of where you were born. This information together helps to create the sky’s blueprint at the time of your birth.
What Does a Moon Sign Mean?
As we discussed above, the Moon sign in your chart connects you to your emotions, your intuition, your needs, and even how you love others. The Moon can be in one of the 12 astrological signs, painting a different picture for everyone. Once you learn more about what your general Moon sign means, then you can begin to look at the Moon’s relationship with the other planets in the chart and even the degree that the sign is in. There is so much that can be uncovered as we look to the stars and learn more about ourselves. To help you begin this journey, here is a brief description of what you can expect with your Moon sign
This fiery Moon sign is known for its quick temper and heated emotions. They aren’t always bringing the heat, but when they do, you can definitely feel the Aries's influence. They do, however, deliver passionate emotions but are also quick to burn out and cut cords quickly. This Moon sign also feels the desire to stay moving and may be active and enjoy working out or being outside.
Taurus Moons love to connect with their senses. In true Taurus fashion, they love to engage in the material things in life, which isn’t always a bad thing. If you’re looking for comfort, luxury, and delectable items, you are sure to find them in the home of a Taurus Moon.
The Moon, influenced by this air sign, is intellectual and thrives in relationships that challenge them mentally. They love to learn more, ask questions, and be involved. This is a fairly social Moon sign, but they are also quick on their feet.
Cancer Moons tend to be very emotional. The Moon rules the sign of Cancer, so while this pairing is comfortable in astrological terms, it definitely creates added emotions. These are deep feelers and they know the importance of expressing their emotions, and connecting with their feminine energy.
Another Moon with fire influence, Leo Moons tend to be loving and energetic. The reputation that resides with Leos is that they tend to take center stage. We can see this with Leo Moons in the sense that they feel the most comfortable when they are recognized and praised.
Virgo Moons tend to be very level-headed and clear-minded. Even though there is an emotional aspect tying this earth sign to a planet of emotions, they never seem to get swept up in dramatics or over-exertion. Virgo tends to be a very practical planet, which can still be seen even in the presence of a Moon sign.
Libra Moons are very charming and nurturing. Libras are known for being balanced and looking at both sides of a situation, and this can be seen in Libra Moons, especially in conversations and when dealing with their own emotions. This is an "aesthetic" placement, meaning that when you encounter a Libra Moon, you know that the vibes will be just right.
This Moon sign maintains the mysterious facade that often accompanies Scorpio placements. They are reserved and may not address their emotions right away. You could expect a Scorpio Moon to have their walls up and establish hard boundaries with others before they are comfortable enough to let someone in.
The spirit of adventure is strong with a Sagittarius Moon. Those with this placement are often dreamers in search of new experiences all of the time. They love to explore, and they love to learn more about the world around them.
Capricorn Moons are hard workers and enjoy maintaining stability in their life. They feel comfortable with their routine and in longer-term relationships rather than quick flings and a sporadic schedule.
This Moon sign embodies the individual. Aquarius Moons are often quirky, eccentric, and one-of-a-kind. They are entirely unique and love to lift others up in the same way.
Pisces Moons are very connected to their spiritual practice. They often have a strong intuition and may be fascinated by magic and the arts. These also tend to be creative individuals.
