In Astrology, the Moon describes your inner most needs. Take a glance at it, and you may feel more connected to it than your zodiac sign.

Astrology is a subject that’s been around for centuries. The pseudoscience originated in Babylon in 1984 BC. The Babylonians created the 12 zodiac signs we know today.


As the media has taken a rise in today’s modern society, many people have been reading their online horoscopes. A lot of people don’t realize there’s more to you than just your Sun or zodiac sign. Your natal chart is made up of many different planets in signs that affect your personality and life purpose. One planet that often goes unnoticed is the Moon.

Moon Sign

As seen in Vogue magazine, Astrologers say the Moon sign indicates, “What kind of person you are on the inside, and how you emotionally react to experiences and those around you.” The Moon can also determine how you seek security. Like the Sun sign, your Moon sign can be in any of the twelve zodiac signs.

For instance, my Moon sign is in an Aquarius. Lunar Aquariuses are quite wise and eccentric in their mannerisms. They seek emotional security by spending time with friends because Aquarius rules friendships. They might even have a progressive streak for change. Moon in Aquariuses will express their emotions by rationalizing how they feel with cool detachment.

Moon + Sun Sign Combinations

Your Sun sign may be different than your Moon sign. For example, if you have your Moon in Libra, you may feel secure in a partnership. Librans are also quite charming and social. Moon in Aries can show security in adventure or impulse.

Maybe you’re ambitious or aggressive?
You can always take a look at your Sun and Moon signs together to get a better idea of who you are at your core. For instance, if you’re a Leo Sun, Scorpio Moon you may be a natural leader who craves attention. The Scorpio placement will make you emotionally intense and you need the truth to seek security.

According to Cafe Astrology, “Every 2 to 2-1/2 days, the Moon changes signs. You likely need to know your birth time in order to determine your Moon sign, but sometimes the Moon is in only one sign for the whole day in your time zone and in this case, you can be sure it’s that sign!”

Check these dates to determine your Sun sign. You may be an ambitious Aries or a deeply compassionate Pisces.
