Spiritual Astrology: Befriending your Moon Sign

Join Leslie Conner as she takes us on a journey exploring our moon sign.
The moon in astrology represents our true emotional nature, the patterns we tend to feel ourselves into, and the specific needs we have in response to experiencing life. Where the moon falls in your natal chart reveals insight into who you are, and what sort of care and comfort can support your emotional wellness and sense of self.

In order to determine the sign of your moon, first draw up your natal chart using the free natal chart tool at astro.com. You will need your birth date, time, and location. If you cannot find your birth time, you might still be able to confirm where the moon was on the day you were born, assuming it did not change signs sometime within that 24 hour period. You can find a list of lunar transits on mooncalendar.astro-seek.com, locating your birth date and seeing the corresponding moon sign.

Your moon is only one significant piece contributing to the complexity of your total being, and might not initially resonate. If you have other dominate placements or aspects, the influence of your moon may be muted or altered. Take time to observe and reflect on your learned emotional tendencies and see what connections you make.

The moon’s sign and phase are two different things. Moon SIGN refers to one of 12 astrological signs: Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces. Moon PHASE refers to which stage of the lunar cycle the moon is in: new moon, waxing crescent, waxing gibbous, full moon, waning gibbous, waning crescent, new moon, repeat.
