What’s Your (Moon) Sign?

Everyone knows their sun sign. This is what most “pop” astrology is based on. Here’s the thing. You have all 12 signs of the zodiac in your chart. Within those signs you also have 10 planets, the sun being one of them (well, technically the sun is referred to as a luminary, but for this discussion planet is fine).

This article focuses on moon. The moon is connected to our emotions, instincts, and sometimes unconscious desires. What follows is a summary how the moon impacts each of the twelve zodiac signs:

Aries: People born under the sign of Aries are naturally confident and impulsive. The moon in Aries amplifies these qualities, leading to bold, impulsive decisions and a need for immediate gratification. This can be a double-edged sword, as it can lead to a sense of excitement and adventure, but also impulsiveness that can lead to trouble. When the moon is in Aries, it is important for those born under this sign to channel their energy in productive ways and be mindful of the consequences of their actions.

Taurus: Taureans are known for their stability, practicality, and love of comfort. The moon in Taurus emphasizes these qualities, making them even more focused on their senses and material comforts.
