Enter your information to calculate your moon sign:
Energetic, impulsive, sporty, straightforward, quick to act. Likes simplicity and honesty, cannot bear boredom.
The Moon in Aries makes an individual energetic, impetuous and impulsive. Even if at times he or she might seem calm and cool outside, inside they are full of fidgety urges. Quite unexpectedly for those around them, and sometimes even for themselves, these people can suddenly get involved in an adventure, make a decisive step, or go to the other side of the globe under the influence of a bright new idea.
It is simply essential for the Moon in Aries to somehow release the energy of this hot-headed sign, and so it is quite common for an individual with this Moon to go into sports (REAL sports, not chess!).
Moon in Aries people see life as a permanent battle or competition. Even if everything goes smoothly, without effort, their Moon in Aries will find something to struggle for.
Since the Moon rules unconscious reactions, people with the Moon in Aries react very quickly and automatically. Later, when they become more conscious of their actions, they may regret what they’ve done, but, alas, patience and prudence are not their strong points.
If their life is too stable and dull, Moon in Aries individuals might protest against this, and this can show as health problems – possibly inflammatory disorders of digestion or an allergy. The Moon is also associated with skin, and the skin may become reddish, with pimples or a rash. Moon in Aries can also be prone to headaches, sleeplessness (especially when overworked or overexcited) and eye problems.
To get rid of stress, Moon in Aries needs to somehow spend excess energy – to have a run, to punch someone (if not physically then emotionally), or break something.
It is not easy for Moon in Aries to be a parent. It just cannot be unobtrusive and steady. Its pedagogical style is more like a cavalry charge, and a slap on the wrist can be its main argument.
Moon in Aries people often think of their mother as an active and energetic person, and the main thing which she taught them in life is not to be idle and that they should pursue their goals.
Housekeeping may serve as a safety-valve for these people, especially for women. They have plenty of energy for cleaning, repairing, cooking, but this happens in bursts, and if something isn’t completed until the end of such a burst, it will be abandoned until the next time. Normally, the Moon in Aries can be a good cook (if it doesn’t burn something in a haste), but everyday cooking is seen as humdrum and boring.
Practical, reliable, easygoing, understands the true value of things. Likes good food and gardening, hates unpredictability.
The Moon in Taurus is often a sign of good practical skills. Those who were lucky to be born with such a Moon are usually talented cooks, and they enjoy doing everything themselves. They prefer a calm, stable life, whith everything known years ahead. It is important for them that everything they own is of good quality and that their home is comfortable. They know how to deal with plants, and time spent digging in the garden is the best way for them to restore their energy.
Routine everyday activities like cooking, washing or gardening are not difficult for the Moon in Taurus, and he or she often feels a need to do something like this because this is a sure way to get satisfaction from the practical results of their actions. Some of them like to have plenty of food in their house: they feel more confident if there is always something around which they like to eat.
The physical body of those born with the Moon in Taurus also feels that it should have a good supply of nutrients, but if left to its own devices it might quickly accumulate unwanted extra weight, especially considering that the Moon in Taurus loves good food and knows how to relax and enjoy itself. The neck and throat may be quite sensitive with such a Moon, so it is always good to keep warm, and avoid food and drinks which irritate mouth and throat.
Food for the Moon in Taurus should contain plenty of vegetables and salad, as well as vitamins, and it should be of a really good quality. Moderate activity and exercise are always beneficial, but life should be predictable and stable, without abrupt changes.
If asked what they want to do to recharge their batteries after a period of stress, Moon in Taurus individuals often say that they need to eat something savoury. An ancient truth works here: if there is good food in the house, nothing is lost.
Taurus Moons can be superb parents, although sometimes they think that the most important thing is to feed their children properly, forgetting their other needs, such as intellectual pursuits. Nevertheless, their children will always remember their parents’ home as a Home Sweet Home.
Communicative, easily adaptable, agile, curious and changeable. Likes to read and meet new people, hates doing same stuff for ages.
The Moon in Gemini gives an urge towards making changes and an unconscious need for communication. Any life situation these people are in, they consider it to be a topic for a future story, and because of it they notice a lot of details which other people would never see. A fixed approach to anything is not typical for a Gemini Moon. This individual would rather try different ways and approaches than do the same thing, and will try to apply all the advice and opinions they receive from their relatives, neighbours or others. They like travel and are not afraid when life circumstances are changing, because that will bring new impressions and interesting new people.
Being able to do many different things at the same time, Moon in Gemini individuals are capable of many achievements, but only in the areas where qualities like agility, liveliness or quick-wittedness are valued and a result can be achieved in a short period of time. But if a matter requires assiduity and perseverance, Moon in Gemini people should avoid it. Otherwise, they will only abandon it soon after beginning.
Impetuous activity for Gemini Moons can lead to nervous exhaustion and overexcitation, and they may be prone to illnesses of the upper airways. Moon in Gemini is sensitive about weather changes and environment pollution, and before going outside it needs to know for sure what what the weather is like, so it can dress appropriately.
It is sometimes said that all illness comes from stress, and this is especially true for people with the Moon in Gemini, who have sensitive and finely-tuned nervous systems. It is important for these people to know how to release the nervous strain caused by stress. Very often the Moon in Gemini needs to tell everyone about its problems – and then its soul will feel relieved. Or if the real problem is not for other people’s ears, it might be good just to chat with someone about absolutely anything – with someone who is able to just listen.
As a parent, Moon in Gemini takes care of teaching all the skills and knowledge that he or she is able to teach, and will make sure that kids are ready for any situation in life. A Mother with the Moon in Gemini will not forget to feed her child, but purely material feeding is not the most important for her. More important is her wish to make them clever and quick-witted. She is often like an elder sister to her children. It is possible, and easy, to discuss with her absolutely anything.
Gemini Moon prefers to have more than just one child — the more people to chat with the better! — and also likes a number of different pets.
Caring, emotional, sensitive and intuitive. Likes to spend time with family, hates new unfamiliar surroundings.
If you see a strong courageous-looking person, but you know that his or her Moon is in Cancer, take into account that the chances are that this person is vulnerable and touchy, even tender, and has a subtle understanding of other people’s emotions. Whether this is a man or a woman, they probably worship their mother and have exceptionally strong emotional bonds with her.
Moon in Cancer individuals need to have their own home, or at least a room, or at least a corner in a room, but only their own and not someone else’s. They can be strongly (and irrationally) attached to certain items which they have important emotional associations with.
There are very few people in the world who are really, really important for the Moon in Cancer, whom he or she considers as their own. Mother is number one, of course, and the kids, no doubt, but perhaps nobody else. Even a spouse can often be considered to represent more or less hostile outer world who cannot be completely trusted. Moon in Cancer people appreciate stable family life but often cannot create that stability and may even put their relationships under stress by constantly comparing the partner to their mother, and demanding from the partner mother-like care and concern.
Emotional problems of the Moon in Cancer are easily reflected on the physical level, hence problems with digestion, breasts or stomach disorders. To restore his or her energy after a stressfull period, the Moon in Cancer needs to hide from the outer world in his or her home and to see only the most trusted and closest people.
Moon in Cancer individuals can be superb parents, and a father with this Moon can be more solicitous than a mother, if she has her Moon in a different sign. But there is a negative side to this: this parent can easily spoil children with excessive care and concern, especially if the children are not naturally self-reliant anyway.
Proud, benevolent, generous, creative and jolly. Craves to be noticed and appreciated, cannot bear to stay in the shadow or be criticized.
In the depths of their souls, these people know they are true nobility, perhaps even royalty or monarchs. They know for certain that they were born different to others and only some outrageous injustice has destined them to live in a small flat instead of a palace. Yet even in these circumstances the Moon in Leo tries hard to create a decent and elegant lifestyle. He or she insists on buying clothes and items which are special in some way, and enjoys throwing a party and having guests at home – an easy way, perhaps, for them to show their true colours.
Leo Moons are proud of their children, who they naturally assume have remarkable talents that distinguish them from others, and as parents they are happy to spend whatever it takes to discover and develop their kids’ talents. They can also be big spenders when it comes to buying clothes, both for themselves and their children. Wearing rags is not for nobles! Moon in Leo individuals often have good taste, especially with clothes and food, and this is frequently the result of their own parents’ influence. Even if they don’t have any creative talents of their own, which is highly unusual, they are still interested in arts, theatre and fashion, and they undoubtedly have their own distinct opinions about these, and all other subjects.
Playing, celebrating and partying are the best ways for Moon in Leo people to restore their energy after periods of stress. For good self-esteem, every now and again they also need to be viewed, appreciated, and adored.
If they don’t have enough love in their life, Moon Leos can have problems with their heart, circulatory system or their general levels of physical energy. Problems with vision are also quite typical. Many Moon Leos tend to have some sort of difficulty in their relationships with their own children, perhaps because they are so eager to spoil them.
Practical, attentive to details, capable of keeping things in order, finding and rectifying problems. Likes pets, enjoys to collect and systematize just anything, hates chaos (although at times creates it).
The Moon in Virgo individual knows intuitively that the world is complicated and multi-faceted, and many things need to be done to keep afloat in it. If he or she is an energetic person, they can easily become workaholics as they will fuss endlessly about every detail, unable to relax and calm down until a whole pile of different chores have been sorted out. The inability of these people to relax can often lead to nervousness and disturbances of the digestive system. They can become over-critical and sometimes this makes them highly-strung and rather unbearable to those around them.
On the other hand, sometimes if the Moon in Virgo belongs to a passive person, he or she might end up doing nothing at all. They know very well how many things ought to be done, but because they know they will be unable to do everything, they just stay idle.
Since they have a good memory and are resourceful, Virgo Moon people often succeed in areas where it’s necessary to keep a lot of details in mind, and they can prioritise, systematise and put things in order. They are curious to know how the human body works and how to make it more efficient, and as a result they may find themselves studying medicine, nutrition or some kind of healing. In fact, knowledge of what to eat and when to eat can be really important for Virgo Moons because in their physiology, the state of their health is very closely related to their digestion. Perhaps this is the very reason why Moon in Virgo people are so selective with food. Never will they eat just anything! Ever!
To stop being stressed out, these people find it helpful to do housework: cleaning, washing up, tidying. Domestic chores can serve as a kind of shelter from the problems of life. Another much less desirable way to deal with their nervousness is to pass it on to others! They do this unintentionally, because it can be so difficult, given their attention to details, not to find something wrong with someone and then latch on to it and nag.
Parents with the Moon in Virgo want to teach their children how to work, how to do everything themselves, and how to keep things in order. Perhaps this is because their own mother taught them how to do all these things, in the same way.
Diplomatic, aesthetical, avoiding confrontation, understanding and attentive. Likes to spend time with the partner, hates situations that require to make a choice.
The Moon in Libra people have a desire to conciliate conflicting interests, to help even complete opposites to meet somewhere, to find a peaceful solution for a conflict situation. In short — they are inborn diplomates. Intuitively, they feel that everything in this world has two sides — a positive and a negative — and try to restore harmony where, as they think, there is no balance. If someone is praised onesidedly, the Moon in Libra will add something negative about that person. But if someone is criticized, the same Moon in Libra will add something positive to the mixture.
It is quite typical for the Moon in Libra individuals to hezitate endlessly in situations where some choice is required. The result of their decision doesn’t become better from the amount of time spent in hezitations — they just pick something at random when there is no possibility to delay anymore.
Relationships can often be the most important part of life for the Moon in Libra people. Not only their emotional well-being, but even the state of their health might depend on how successfully they find mutual understanding with their partner. In order to restore their balance after a significant stress, they need to spend some time together with someone who is dear to them, to speak about their problem, to feel compassion and understanding. And if they don’t have such an opportunity for a long time, if stress continues to build up, the Moon in Libra can become inconstant and erratic. They can develop a problem with kidneys and get lower back pain as a result. Another typical health problem for them is a migraine-like headache, which also often has its roots in kidneys.
The Moon in Libra gives aesthetical perception. These people know quite well what they like and what they don’t, which colours and styles look right and which do not match. Parents with such a Moon are often worried about how to dress their children elegantly and fashionably so that nobody could say that there is something wrong in their family. The image of their family means a lot for the Moon in Libra individuals, and being good diplomates they try to always make a good impression and to hide any existing problems.
Intense, devoted, purposeful and persevering. Likes everything that is strong and powerful, adores hot water. Hates being exposed or overpowered.
The Moon feels uncomfortable in Scorpio because the intensity and the permanent inner struggle of this sign contradict the Moon’s idea of comfortable life. The Moon in Scorpio individuals are often overfilled with difficult, powerful emotions, and it may be difficult for them to recognize that the source of these emotions is inside of themselves. They might paint into dark colours the surrounding world, become bitter, revengeful or aggressive. They might choose to fill their life with conspiracy or select such a lifestyle that they are seldom seen in public.
The limitless energy of Scorpio, when being revealed through lunar functions, makes people insatiable in one or another respect. Some of them can have a passion towards food, others towards sex, or money, or work, or power, or drugs, or anything else. If the Moon in Scorpio individuals have decided to pursue some goal, it can be difficult for them to stop until they hitsome external limits. Such a lifestyle can be rather destructive for their health, and sexual functions and organs might be the most vulnerable.
The Moon in Scorpio folks intuitively understand many things which are secret or hidden. They can make mysterious, deep impression on the other people, as if mesmerizing those of the opposite gender. However, to achieve harmony in their relationships, they need to teach themselves how to most harmlessly unload the disturbing, dark component of their energy, and that’s not easy. Sex is the most natural way for them to unwind, and satisfying sexual life is a must for the Lunar Scorpios. Another way to harmonize inner energy which many of them appreciate is to soak in a very hot water – so hot, that most people would consider it intolerable.
These individuals like everything strong, concentrated, saturated, so some amount of good old whisky or cognac can be a healing elixir for them.
The Moon in Scorpio can be a difficult parent. This person can go from one extreme to the other, such as from being extremely generous to being extremely mean. The subconscious aim here is to gain total control over the child’s soul, and as a result, a very close and intense relationship might develop between the parent and the child.
Adventurous, friendly, optimistic, full of ideas, always on the move. Likes outdoors and travel, hates anything boring and ordinary.
The Moon in Sagittarius inclines towards life full of exciting adventures, travel, meetings with interesting people. These individuals’ need for plenty of space and movement often brings them to the world of sports, and the most attractive for them are those sports that are associated with horses. The perspective of life on the move does not frighten the Moon in Sagittarius folks, as it does most other people, but on reverse, excites them as an opportunity to see new places, meet new people, share ideas.
The Moon in Sagittarius individuals are interested in everything new. They are the first who will buy new gadgets. Their house is a kind of club, a place to meet with friends, where interesting, unusual people are always welcome, especially if they are able to tell stories about unimaginable places and unthinkable deeds.
Optitimism and a lack of desire to dig down into details help the Moon in Sagittarius people not to lose their faith in better future even in the most complicated of situations, and this is one of the reasons why their body is so resilient against illnesses. They allow the problems just to pass, without leaving a destructive trace in their soul. The only negative trait of such a Moon is its inability to save energy. These people are rushing forward until they are completely burnt out, and then, when the body is lacking energy, different problems can surface.
It is important for the Moon in Sagittarius people to learn how to separate themselves from fuss and overexcitation. They need to have a lot of open space around them, to be in contact with nature. The easiest way for them to restore their energy after a significant stress is to go for a walk, preferably into a park, forest or an open field. A more fundamental approach would be to go backpacking or to spend holidays in an exotic country. Passive rest is seldom acceptable for the Moon in Saggitarius folks. Having no opportunity to move freely, they are just becoming more nervous and restless.
Being parents, such people do not burden their kids with petty-minded meddling. Perhaps they are not able to provide that all-encompassing care, more typical for the Moon in Cancer or Taurus, but they give their children plenty of freedom to develop their own personality and to appreciate the world around them.
Serious, responsible, cautious, organized, ambitious. Likes order, appreciates social status, hates irresponsibility and sloppiness.
Capricorn is a cold, dry sign, and the Moon feels herself rather bleak here. Hence the attitude towards life typical for the Moon in Capricorn – serious and watchful. These people like to take different precautionary measures as if putting barriers between themselves and the surrounding world. Men with the Moon in Capricorn can grow a beard in order to look older and more considerable than their peers, while women may look more serious and impregnable than situation at hand requires. The Moon in Capricorn individuals are always ready to shut their door when they see an unwanted visitor.
These people like to have a plan or schedule in their life, so that everything is organized and put into its own place in space and time. They feel themselves all right when everyone around has and knows their rank and status, when everything is stipulated officially. In such an environment they will be reliable, industrious and obliging.
And on reverse, the less suitable for them is an environment where everyone is acting like they see fit, where there are no definite rules and order. In such an environment the Moon in Capricorn folks can become clumsy, awkward, inefficient.
To restore their energy after a significant stress, these individuals need to a kind of push off other people, to feel a distance separating from them. They can quite unexpectedly bring the emotional atmosphere under the point of freezing, just because they feel themselves not very comfortably. They want to feel their own, firm and reliable, step of the social ladder under their feet, which will always belong to them no matter what.
Since they put so much importance into order and discipline, the Moon in Capricorn people are very seldom content of their children or other close relatives. They might think that the most vital for children is to respect the elders and to keep their toys in order. This helps their children to be organized, but it is unlikely that they will develop close trustful relationships with their parents.
The Moon in Capricorn can give a body, the vitality of which is a bit low, as well is the level of energy is lower than usual – hence the inclination to congestion and hypostases. These people should have enough of mineral salts with their food, otherwise their bones can become weak and fragile.
Original, knowledgeable, competent, has strong opinions. Likes freedom, enjoys reading. Hates mediocrity and incompetence.
In many life situations, the Moon in Aquarius people have their own, distinct and sometimes very original opinion, and they are not going to change this opinion no matter what, even if they will be left completely alone. It is very important for these individuals to retain their independence. They don’t want their personal life to be anybody else’s concern.
Often the Moon in Aquarius individuals have some outstanding abilities in one or another field, and they work like a magnet for those people who share their interests. This is why so often they take a central place in the company of like-minded friends. And even there they somehow manage to keep their uniqueness. They are not mixing well with the other people, they are together with them, but still alone.
As a result of their character, quite often the Moon in Aquarius folks can become really alone in their personal life, and their constant urge for independence can lead to chronic emotionall stress. Hence their susceptibility to the disorders of nervous and circulatory systems, as also those unpredictable changes in their mood. There is an impression that at times they are getting tired of themselves, and to get rid of this tiredness they are trying to change abruptly, as if to become a different person.
To restore after a significant stress, the Moon in Aquarius persons need to have a hobby which they could plunge themselves into, forgetting about the surrounding world. It would be really good for them if they could speak out their problems, but this is not so easy, because Lunar Aquarians do not like to just chat with anyone about anything. They prefer dealing with experts in their field of interest – this is with whom they are ready to talk endlessly. And if there is no such a person around, a good book could serve as a replacement for a friend.
The Moon in Aquarius parents can be very original. From the early years they will make clear to their child that everyone’s individuality is precious, and everyone should be independent. As a result, their kids might not be always properly fed or dressed, but they will become self-reliant earlier than their peers, and their talents will develop more successfully.
Intuitive, imaginative, compassionate, romantic, easily influenced. Likes emotionally rich situations, enjoys being creative. Hates strict rules and discipline.
Sensitivity, changeability, rich imagination – these are the distinguishing features of the Moon in Pisces individuals. They are so perceptible to others’ emotions that can be deeply moved by a situation in which someone else would never notice anything special. They try to avoid strict order or rigid rules and prefer to create around them a kind of “creative chaos”, as if protesting against requirement to put things on their places.
Rich imagination of the Moon in Pisces helps these people in creative endeavours, but their negative trait can be a lack of reliability and responsibility. They don’t know to where and when they will swim away next time — but at least not to a place where they will be required to do something. If they meet an obstacle, the Moon in Pisces people will find a way around. They will never storm or forcefully demand anything. Quietly and softly moving from one situation to another, they will be looking for a place with a cleaner emotional atmosphere.
To release stress, the Moon in Pisces folks might want to stay alone in some romantic surroundings and to day dream. They are able to meditate naturally, to travel in their imagination to a different reality. It may be good for them to live or at least to spend their vacations near a body of water, best of all a sea or an ocean. Even by simply spending a little time at the sea shore they will immediately feel significant relief.
Unfortunately, many of the Moon in Pisces people are prone to smoking and alcohol as a way to get an emotional relief. This might help for a period, but their body is very sensitive to contamination and consequences of such an unnatural relief can be really detrimental.
The Moon in Pisces parents are kind and full of compassion, they are ready to understand and forgive anyone. They like fairy tales even more than their kids and can read them for hours. They will take an active part in development of creative abilities and imagination of their children. But one thing where they are not helpful is in teaching their children how to deal with the real world, how to be responsible and ordered. They have no idea about this themselves.
What is a Moon Sign?
In astrology, the Moon sign, also known as the “Rashi” or “Lunar sign,” refers to the position of the Moon in the zodiac at the time of your birth. While your Sun sign (the sign the Sun was in at the time of your birth) is commonly known and studied, your Moon sign is just as important in understanding your personality and emotional tendencies.
Your Moon sign is said to represent your inner self, your subconscious mind, and your emotional nature. It is believed to indicate how you feel and express emotions, what makes you feel comfortable and secure, and how you respond to life’s challenges.
