“The Moon in all her immaculate purity hung in the sky, laughing at this world of dust. She congratulated me for my carefully considered maneuvers and invited me to share in her eternal solitude.” –Shan Sa, Empress

Most people know their Sun sign, known in many circles as simply the Zodiac or Star Sign. Your Moon’s Zodiac sign, with element, quality and house position, determines how you handle your intimate life, your instinctive nature, what role Mother played and what’s needed to stay happy, calm, comforted and understood.
It shows emotional desires, longings and what really goes on behind closed doors. Are we lovey dovey or aloof, physically affectionate, or prefer to keep a space cushion between us and them. This is valuable information for understanding the interior life of family members, friends and of course, potential romantic partners.
When Moons are compatible, there’s a lot of emotional understanding. When Moon energies clash, it takes patience and accepting that others – even those you’re very close to – have emotional and soul needs that are so very different than yours.
In the Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius), the Moon is enthusiastic, freedom-loving, a natural cheerleader, bright, impulsive, and at times, a smidge insensitive. What the fire sign Moon misses in emotional nuance, is made up with real warmth and passion.
The Moon in the Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) is a big feeler, and picks up on what others miss. Can have boundary issues that really mess with their sense of who they are.
The Moon in the Air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) falls in love with ideas and minds, and often intellectualizes emotions before or during the actual feeling of them.
The Moon in the Earth signs (Capricorn, Taurus, Virgo) has a sensate approach, and finds comfort in the real and tangible. The earth signs are renown lovers and chefs, with their affinity for physical closeness and delight in earthly pleasures.
