The Moon and Its Importance to Astrology

It’s been in the sky every night of your life, and every night for billions of years, but how much do you really know about the Moon? We’re all aware that the Moon has an effect on the Earth, but what does it actually do? Our very own astrologer, Susan Taylor, tells us all you need to know about the Moon.

The Moon: What Really Is It?

A celestial body sitting 3480 kilometers from the Earth, the Moon has a diameter of 3480 km, making it a quarter of the Earth’s size. What’s more, it takes 27 days for the Moon to both fully rotate on its axis, and complete an orbit around the Earth.

The Moon and Its Symbolism

Alongside the Sun, the Moon watches over the skies and is seen by many to represent ‘feminine light’; as opposed to the ‘masculine light’ of her solar counterpart. She is Selene in Mesopotamia, Artemis and Hecate in Greece, Diana among the Romans, and Isis in Egypt. She is the mother goddess and a symbol of fertility and maternity.

The Moon and Astrology

The Moon is a celestial body that is incredibly important to astrology. Arguably as essential as the Sun or the Ascendant, the Moon symbolizes everything that is feminine. In a man, the Moon has the ability to evoke emotion and sensitivity, as well as love for the women in his life.
