What Aspects of Your Personality Does the Moon Rule?
The Moon controls the ebb and flow of water on the Earth. And water is the element which is connected to emotions. So the Moon affects our moods (see the similarity in the words?) and our emotional responses in any situation.
Donna Cunningham, in her book, “Moon Signs: The Key to Your Inner Life”, says,
“Not only does the Moon sign describe your predominant emotional reactions and how you deal with them, it also shows your immediate, instinctive responses to to crises, which are predominantly emotional and unconscious in nature.”
Also, the position and phase of the Moon can affect swathes of the population. You can always feel the mood of any gathering of people. Sometimes there is lightness and love all around,and there is an easiness about everyone. At other times it takes a lot more effort and energy to feel enthusiastic and involved. That’s the Moon’s influence.
The Moon and Love
Many of us overlook the fact that we have emotional needs, and often we don’t even know what they are ourselves. Knowing your Moon sign, and exploring what it means can go a long way to solving many personal dilemmas. Your Moon sign can give you a signpost as to what deep aspects of your being need attention and nurturing. Your Moon sign can also tell you why love affairs fail or succeed. However, you have to remember that you cannot and should not rely on another human being to fulfill those needs. Ultimately you are responsible for your own feelings.
You’ve found out what your Moon sign is, and, if you didn’t know it already, it was probably a revelation, wasn’t it? Let’s briefly check how the Moon affects your love life.
Your Moon in Aries
Aries Moon needs excitement, a challenge and a dare. Aries Moon likes to thrill and be thrilled. Your love life can never be static; it has to be engaging, interesting and always changing. You also enjoy being mothered and indulged now and then, as playfulness is important to you.
Your Moon in Taurus
Taurus likes repetition. Say you love me. And then say it again. Bring me food, wine and sweet words. Taurus Moon likes the status quo. Taurus Moon likes to know exactly where he or she stands. Loyalty and trust are basic requirements of any relationship, but are especially important to Taurus. Don’t play games, play passion.
Your Moon in Gemini
Gemini Moon has the quality of quicksilver. You thought you knew how things were going and then it all changes again. Gemini Moon must talk and show off a little. Stretch their mind, consider new concepts. Gemini Moon can be a lot of fun on dates, but commitment is a long way off.
Your Moon in Cancer
When your Moon is in Cancer you are often taken by surprise at your emotional reactions. You thought you were OK, then suddenly your feelings overcome you. You need love and connection more than you thought you did. Cancer Moon also loves to cozy up at home in their jammies.
Your Moon in Leo
Leo Moon needs to show off, like a little child, proud of a new toy or new achievement. Indulge this playful side of you when it is appropriate to do so. Don’t let it rule your love life or you will get a reputation for immaturity in relationships.
Your Moon in Virgo
Virgo Moon likes to be sure about their relationships, otherwise anxiety takes over. Not for them on/off romances or game-playing. Once in deep, Virgo Moon is highly committed and expects the same from their partner. Deeply private and deeply passionate.
Your Moon in Libra
Libra Moon expresses itself in beauty and harmony. Libra Moon likes to be in sync with their loved one. Smooth the way with sweet music, cute cards, love notes and little gifts. There’s nothing Libra Moon likes more than to see evidence of affection and to receive tokens of love.
Your Moon in Scorpio
If you have a Scorpio Moon then you are probably the kinky type. A smidgen of fantasy, a little role-play, and a lot of intensity goes a long way to cementing your affections. Loyal to the core, but if you feel betrayed, revenge is not far behind. If your partner ever reveals your dark side, they can look out.
Your Moon in Sagittarius
Adventurous and exciting, Sagittarius Moon will shoot an arrow straight at your heart. Someone with a Sagittarius Moon loves to explore, indulge their creativity, and find things to get enthusiastic over. Whether it be a trip to the Himalayas, riding a motorbike around the foothills of Peru, or making a foray into the mysterious depths of Ikea, life is always an adventure.
Your Moon in Capricorn
Capricorn Moon presents a somewhat staid face to the world but don’t be fooled. Underneath that calm and sensible facade beats a passionate, soulful heart. Having said that, security and contentment are fundamental to a successful relationship.
Your Moon in Aquarius
Aquarius Moon is hard to pin down. They love being in love. But they also need their autonomy and independence. Working for a common cause is often the best basis for love with an Aquarius Moon. They express love through creativity, words, and deeds.
Your Moon in Pisces
You’re a healer, a lover, an artist. Pisces Moon needs security but within that, you also need the freedom to express your emotions. Sometimes you have to be the storm, at other times the calming oil upon troubled waters. Love is never dull with Pisces Moon.
