Most people know their Sun sign but few are aware of the importance of their Moon sign. The Sun stays in a sign for approximately 28 days, whereas the Moon changes sign every two and a half days so it is a much more sensitive point in person’s chart. The Moon in your chart shows your child within, how you respond and react to situations, your emotional self and it is very important in connection with how you relate to other people. If you are in a relationship with someone who has a compatible Moon sign to you, chances are you will feel comfortable and at home around them. If it is not in a compatible sign with your Moon sign, you may feel as though they drain your energy, you feel as though they are rubbing your fur the wrong way. I’m sure many of you can identify with that feeling.
So let me outline the main characteristics of each Moon sign and I’d appreciate it if you could send me feedback as to whether you identify with your Moon sign or whether it doesn’t fit you at all:
Moon in Aries
You are spontaneous and you need to be active. You can flare up quickly but then forget just as quickly what upset you in the first place. You like to try out new things, to go on adventures, to be the first, to be inspirational. You have a natural enthusiasm. You can be very impatient especially if someone else is very slow. You need to feel the earth moving under you.
Moon in Taurus
You like comforts in life, you like some predictability, you like sensual things – you love nice food, nice surroundings, beautiful things, nature, scenery, flowers, music – anything that stimulates your senses. You do not like change and you can get into a rut if you don’t watch it. You are insecure around money and you definitely need a nest egg to make you feel safe.
Moon in Gemini
