What Is Your Moon Sign and Why Is It Important?

Your sun sign is the sign you always hear about. If your birthday is March 18th, that means that your sun sign is a Pisces and thus you are a Pisces. Your sun sign dictates your general personality, ego, and identity. It’s the easiest part of yourself for other people to read. It is in many ways how you show yourself to the outside world. Your moon sign, however, is a just as important but often overlooked element of your alignment within the zodiac.

The moon sign dictates your inner self—your emotions and mood. The moon visits every zodiac sign over a period of one month. Therefor, you will likely have a different moon sign from someone else born in your same sun sign. You can determine your Moon sign through a complete natal chart. It is created by plugging in the exact date, place and time of your birth.

Most people present differently in front of people than they do when they are sitting with their emotions alone in their apartment or are in a totally comfortable setting. If you feel like there is a disconnect between your sun sign traits and your true internal self, understanding your moon sign may help you reconcile some of those disparities.


Moon in Aries

You require independence to feel truly energized, and productivity will make you feel satisfied at the end of the day. When you do start to feel sad, upset, or emotional, you take care of it right away so it doesn’t interfere with your day-to-day operations.

Moon in Taurus

You feel most comfortable when you feel stable and secure, working through internal adversity with a practical and level head. It’s hard for you to feel and act 100% yourself around other people. Only the people you truly love and feel loyal to will get the pleasure of seeing you let your guard down.

Moon in Gemini

You are energized by socialization, laughter, and charm, so you get restless and unsettled when forced to come face-to-face with the more serious side of life. You may also realize there might be something better out there that you aren’t experiencing.

Moon in Cancer

You are very giving and like to function as a pillar of strength and relief for your loved ones when they are going through trying times. You detest detachment above all else and will feel truly happy in moments of intimacy and security.


Moon in Leo

Leo moons require, above all else, validation and care from their loved ones in order to feel at internal homeostasis. You don’t necessarily need to be the center of attention, but need to feel like you matter in the lives of those who matter to you.

Moon in Virgo

Virgo moons don’t mind the mundane, feeling most secure when they’ve straightened out the details of their life. Such as responding to emails, getting the groceries, and paying the utility bill. They love routine, and roadblocks or bumps in the road can upset their feeling of security.

Moon in Libra

Libra moons feel at peace when they are in a secure partnership. They feel more comfortable sitting on the couch with their lover, than they ever will when they’re alone.

Moon in Scorpio

The Scorpio alignment is already hyper-emotional, so Scorpio moons can be extremely intense. They have excellent intuition, value deep emotional intimacy, and are terrified of betrayal.

Moon in Sagittarius

Sagittarius moons are chill, easy-going, and independent. You like the idea of intimacy. Additionally you are often unable to stick it out through tough times, hindering your ability to build real relationships.

Moon in Capricorn

Capricorn moons come off as cool, calm, competent, and collected, but underneath they can be rather turbulent and unsure of themselves. They are goal-oriented, and their self-worth often relies on their ability to be productive and reach their short and long-term goals.

Moon in Aquarius

Aquarius moons are used to feeling like outsiders. Although that doesn’t mean they are always comfortable in that position, causing them to feel lonely. You may come off as unpredictable and cold. However, when people get to know you they see that you are a reliable and trustworthy friend.

Moon in Pisces

Pisces moons are spacey and idealistic, but they are also extremely intuitive and complex. You need time to be alone with yourself frequently so that your mind can wander freely and you can embrace your creativity.
