To Understand Your Emotions, You Need To Know Your Moon Sign

You know your Sun sign, how it represents your personality and how you are compatible with others (especially in romantic relationships), but do you know your Moon sign? That’s a little different.

The Moon represents our emotions and our deepest needs. So no matter how someone’s Sun sign acts towards you, your Moon sign is how you react to it. We tend to act on and lead with our emotions.

We all deal with our emotions in different ways and whether or not we’re comfortable and secure with them is dependent on which sign is in this aspect of our chart.

If you don’t know what your Moon is, you can fill it out some information in the chart here.

So, what is your Moon sign? What does it mean for your emotions and your relationships?

Moon in Aries

You’re kinda intense and impulsive in that you don’t beat around the bush. You’re quick to overreact and you have a hard time waiting for things to happen. You want to know what’s going on and would prefer to face things head on. Why? Confrontation doesn’t bother you. You do everything you can to get your way. Is it obvious that this is some fiery energy?

Moon in Taurus

You’re a caring, sensitive, and deeply affectionate person. You give all of yourself to people and you expect it in return, but if someone doesn’t give it to you, you still give them more chances to “redeem” themselves. You’re the best lover, if treated right, because you seek familiarity and a sense of home and security with people and wherever you surround yourself.

Moon in Gemini

Sometimes you can be difficult to handle. You’re usually pleasant (is it just because you wear rose colored glasses most of the time?) but you’re also irritable at times, and when you can get like that, you get a bit snappy and…unpleasant. You don’t mind talking about your feelings but you don’t necessarily want to feel them and you’d prefer to distract yourself with something stimulating.

Moon in Cancer

Despite how often you’re taken for granted, and often you get hurt, you’re still very emotionally strong. You rarely go against how you feel and tend to embrace the highly sensitive and overly emotional side to you. Though you tend to give people the benefit of the doubt and give out chances after chances, you also know when to cut your losses. And when someone is on your good side, you’re hopelessly devoted to them.

Moon in Leo

Your confidence makes you want to take control over things, especially with your emotions. You’re very outgoing and though you like being the center of attention, you won’t make a scene if something goes wrong and makes you feel bad. You’ll deal with it in the comfort of your own home, and when you do deal with it, you’ll be very headstrong.

Moon in Virgo

You tend to overanalyze, nit pick, and strive to straighten out all the details of things. You’re very aware of everyone and everything and so, you’re quite critical of things – but only with people you care about. As a lover, you tend to be a bit more emotionally reserved but you’re still kind and willing to lend a hand when needed.

Moon in Libra

The master of harmony and balance – yep, that’s you! You tend to put others’ needs before your own because you just want to keep the peace, and that’s great sometimes, but if you spend too much time striving for harmony – at whatever cost – it can make you feel a bit discontent sometimes. If you can find balance in a relationship, hold onto it, but don’t neglect your own equilibrium.

Moon in Scorpio

You’re intense. Like, very intense. You want to cut to the core of someone but you still won’t let someone cut to the core of you. You tend to hide your emotions and people get suspicious of you because of it. You know that too, and so you use that to your advantage. When you do open up to someone, though, you’re deeply committed to them and are very loving and protective.

Moon in Sagittarius

You have a thirst for exploration and want to live your life to the fullest with someone else, even if you are afraid of commitment and tend to run away when things get hard. Despite that, you are an optimistic person who wants to live off of high vibrations. You tend to have blind faith in that everything will work out in the end.

Moon in Capricorn

You enjoy solitude and have the bad habit of getting sucked into that that when you should be out mingling. Why? You do better in the presence of others and you’re constantly looking for security and stability. You want to keep your emotions under control as best as you can, so when you do give your heart to someone, you give your all.

Moon in Aquarius

You’re an unpredictable person with unpredictable emotions. You lack emotions sometimes and you expect others to be like you and when they’re not, it’s fine, but you just put yourself in solitude and act as a loner. People see you as a bit standoffish, but really, you’re just lost in your head. On the outside looking in…

Moon in Pisces 

As someone who has a little bit of every everyone else in them (seriously, Pisces are known for having bits of every sign in their personality), you are very compassionate and sympathetic. Your sensitivity to others comes across as innocence, if anything, and you’re able to walk in others’ shoes quite easily. You have a balance between reality and fantasy; however, you prefer living in a dream world.
