When utilizing astrology to understand yourself, look at your moon sign—it's traditionally been connected with emotion. Ancient thinkers attributed mental fluctuations to moon cycles. In the 13th century, ‘periodic insanity’ based on moon cycles was called ‘lunatic’—an unpleasant term.
Mars-ruled lunar Aries are aggressive, impetuous, passionate, and excitable. They want people to intuitively grasp their demands, even if they can't say so. Aries moons may be volatile and defensive on bad days. On a good day, they may be superb emotional problem-solvers (making them good advisors) and love risk-takers.
The moon prefers Taurus. They enjoy earthly comforts under Venus, the goddess of love, social graces, luxury, and money. The lunar bull is sensual, artistic, gentle, elegant, and faithful to loved ones. Indeed, they truly embrace life's richer pleasures. This makes them the zodiac's 'eat, drink, and be merry' lunar sign.
Gemini moonpeople understand their emotions best by talking about them. They're emotionally savvy since they can rationalize their sentiments after a long debate. Gemini moons, the only zodiac sign with a life companion (the twins Castor and Pollux in Greek mythology), strive to resolve issues to maintain relationships.
The moon rules Cancer naturally. Cancer moons like nostalgia based on intuition, sentiments, and experiences. Crabs may perceive events and people from different angles since they walk sideways. They will cling to safe people and flee unsafe ones. Cancer moons guard themselves from out-of-place situations with pincers and shells.
Be big or go home! Big-hearted Leo moons prefer to exhibit their love lavishly. Giving lavish gifts is done to thank people who have supported their flaming ego and let them be the center of attention. If someone hurts their ego, they'll yell and go. Loving them will keep them.
Lunar Virgos are Mercury-ruled and analytical. Compassionate, patient, and fair-minded. When emotionally stressed, they erupt (or collapse) with good cause. Good news: Virgo moons easily forget drama. Their reputation is critical, finicky, and selective. However, they only offer their best and expect the same from others.
Venusian moon in Libra balances life with companionships. A sweet and caring lover, they utilize their charm and humor to show their affection and give gifts and meals. The scales of justice are the only zodiac sign without a live creature. Sometimes this symbolism makes people analytical, critical, and less emotional.
Mars ruled Scorpio traditionally, but Pluto rules it now. They become intuitive, passionate, aggressive, voracious, and transforming. Scorpio moons, known for their deep, gloomy temperament, frequently portray a poker face to disguise their intense sentiments. Once they trust someone, they'll open up.
Jupiter, the enthusiastic risk-taker, rules the auspicious Sagittarius moon. While traveling, they enjoy unique flavors and philosophical chats. The zodiac sign with a bow and arrow will shoot at the jugular to defend oneself when threatened.
This lunar Capricorn needs patience and persistence from themselves and others. Saturn's introspective, hardworking Capricorn moon stays focused. Success matters because individuals define themselves earthly. No-nonsense attitude makes them take life seriously. The Capricorn moon must promote rest and relaxation.
Saturn ruled Aquarius traditionally, but Uranus rules now. The airy Aquarius moon enjoys freedom and exploration. As a pioneer, they encounter like-minded humanitarians with their unusual perspectives. They can exclude individuals who disagree with them emotionally. Secure and powerful individuals must surround them.
Jupiter and Neptune rule Pisces' creative, emotional, and psychic moon. This lunar sign's sensitivity and empathy allow it to absorb others' feelings. Contradictory sentiments may develop. Pisces moons must distinguish emotional imagination from reality and fact from fiction (even with their memories) to swim freely and live joyfully.
