While your sun sign is what people see on the outside, parts of your personality and a snapshot of who you are, your moon sign signifies things that aren’t easily visible. It shows your hopes dreams and fears. It’s who you are inside- what makes you tick and your hidden fears, insecurities and motivations. The moon sign goes deeper than personality, it’s your full inner workings.
Moon in the Signs
Moon in Aries– You’re a very impatient person who wants things NOW. You’re a doer, you don’t like emotional displays and you’re not a fan of living in the past (or thinking too much about the future. You’re an “in the now” type of person.
You are a passionate person and when you’re in an emotional situation, you want it to be the number 1 priority so you don’t have to dwell on it too long. You can take things way too personal at times and even see things that are said innocently as personal attacks.
Moon in Taurus– Slow and steady is your game. You always finish but you want things to be the same and value routine over all other things. You’re traditional and a change to your routine can really mess you up. You value commitment over all other things so you only make promises you know you can keep and don’t give up until you honor it.
You’re romantic, you feel deep when you’re emotional and you’re a very feminine person by nature.
Moon in Gemini– You’re a very social person and can easily charm anyone. You’re always able to come up with come backs and you’re a fun person to be around most of the time. Lunar Geminis are typically the life of the party but due to your fear of commitment and fear of being hurt, you tend to have superficial relationships in general. Once someone is able to get through your protective walls, you are bored with routines and prefer keeping busy.
When you’re in a family context, you’re the one organizing the parties and get togethers.
Moon in Cancer– The moon is at home in cancer. You’re a highly emotional person, but can be prone to depression. You’re at your best as a counselor to others or helping people on an emotional level. You prefer peace and hate all things chaotic.
You are the ultimate peacekeeper and can barely function when there isn’t harmony. You tend to live too much in the past and you love reliving the joyful parts of your past.
Moon in Leo – You thrive on adventure, travel and “sowing seed.” You’re not too interested in settling down in one place for too long but you’re a bit introverted until you get to know people. When you’re with the people you care about most, you want to be the one who entertains them and the person their lives revolve around. You’re more comfortable when you’re in control of parties, get togethers, trips and even the organizing of the home.
Moon in Virgo– Order and structure are very important to you. You’re stubborn and a bit soft spoken but you can also be hyper critical- both of your self and your loved ones. You are serious, grounded and follow the rules very strict. You are well disciplined, organized, tidy and steady in your approach.
Like other earth signs, you prefer traditional to out of the box thinking and you’re one of the most loyal placements.
Moon in Libra– You’re dependent on having a plus one. You need commitment and a relationship. You also have a deep need for balance in all parts of life- harmony and peace, fairness and equal treatment are all what helps keep you grounded in sanity. You cannot stand seeing anyone treated bad and you can’t stand seeing anyone treated less.
You need a relationship or partnership to feel like you’re complete- it’s a weakness because it can keep you in bad situations before you find the one that truly “completes” you.
Moon in Scorpio– While you’re not a fan of material, you are infatuated by the internal. You’re constantly getting lost inside your mind, exploring the meaning of life, love and everything in between. You want to meet like minded people who are also into deeper conversations.
You’re not easy to settle down, you have strong barriers that have to be knocked down before you really open up but when you open up, you’re intense in a way many can’t resist. You’re a very loyal and real person and expect the people you drop your guard around to be the same.
Moon in Sagittarius– You have a very strong need for your space and independence. You thrive when you’re alone. You don’t really want to settle down unless you find someone else who also considers space and freedom to be vital.
You are hard headed, love challenges and have a very strong competitive nature.
Moon in Capricorn– You need to be seen as an authority figure in your topics of interest. You thrive in situations where you’re in charge and where your routine isn’t disrupted too bad. You need to walk a traditional path and you love traditional roles when you’re in a family or romantic relationship.
When you let yourself fully go and find someone you can open up to, you want them to live up to your same strong and strict standards of honesty and loyalty.
Moon in Aquarius– You’re quiet, you watch and observe others before you join in. You want to understand why people are like they are and why they do what they do. You’re not a big fan of normal conversation, you want a deeper connection with those you’re close to.
You lean more progressive in your ideology and you look down on people with a more conservative mindset. You think your ways are the proper ways and can get wrapped up in judging others for not thinking the way you think they should.
Moon in Pisces– You thrive in a spiritual space. You’re observant and you like conversations about life, love and the meaning of everything. You are creative and prone to day dreaming. At times you mistake your vivid fantasy life as being your realty.
You can be flaky, and a bit air headed, but it’s not always a bad thing. You don’t let people down but you can get so wrapped up in your own thoughts you forget about commitments and appointments.
