So you’ve read all about your zodiac sign, and know the essential qualities of that sign. You know if you have the fiery nature of one of the fire signs, Aries, Leo or Sagittarius, or the sensitivity of the one of the water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces; the solidity of one of the earth signs, Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn or the mental acuity of the Air signs, Gemini, or Aquarius. But something doesn’t quite fit right, because at some point you say “but that’s not how I feel.”
You’re right, you absolutely are. The Sun, the planet we equate with our “sign” is just one part of the equation of our personality. The zodiac sign the Moon was in at the time of your birth rules your emotions, your feelings about home and hearth and the things that make you feel secure. Since the Moon runs through all twelve signs each month, placing the Moon in your natal chart requires that you know your birth time. If you do not know your birth time, and it is not on your birth certificate, then the next step is to contact the town hall at your birthplace and request a complete copy of your birth certificate, the one where your birth time is recorded.
Knowing your Moon astrology sign gives you added insight into those things that engage your heart. For men it is one indicator of the type of woman they need in their life. For women it is a validation of their nurturing, caring side.
