Calculate Your Moon Sign & Discover Its Impact On Your Personality

Did you know that in addition to having a zodiac and rising sign, you also have a moon or lunar sign? Only astrology enthusiasts tend to know this important component, which is why we’re here to enhance the knowledge of your personality and profile. The position of the Moon on the day you were born and the zodiac constellation it was traveling through does indeed say a lot about your character and in particular our emotions; this is even more so the case for women. Our Astrologer, Susan Taylor, unveils the secrets of this important astrological factor and reveals how to calculate yours.

What does my Moon sign mean and represent for me? 

This component of your personality corresponds to the position of the Moon at the time of your birth. Indeed, your lunar sign is linked to our emotions that we aren’t exactly comfortable expressing and displaying. What's interesting is that according to astrologers, deep down, people tend to recognize their characteristics associated with this aspect rather than their zodiac sign for example. Yet, they aren't always comfortable putting this aspect of their personality out into the world.

In astrology, the Moon emphasizes sensitivity, the unconscious domain, the management of emotions, as well as the part of femininity that everyone carries within. We, therefore, need to understand its importance in order to learn more about ourselves. This astral body does not shed light on our actions but on our emotional potential and our reactions to events. It brings us face to face with our instinct, what is most natural is within us and, paradoxically, and what seems elusive.

Knowing just your zodiac sign or rising sign isn't enough when you want to go deeper into the field of astrology. That's why it's fundamental to know your lunar sign because the latter corresponds to our receptive capacity, our love profile, and our emotions in general. It's even said to represent the feminine part of our personality.

While our zodiac signs represent our outer personalities, your moon sign embodies your inner world, your emotional nature, and your subconscious. It influences the way you express and live out your feelings. It even affects your ability to get along well with those around you. If you are a woman, the lunar sign has a major role because it directly influences your femininity and your way of loving. It can sometimes be even more important than your sun sign.

2) Identify the number corresponding to your month of birth

To determine the number in relation to your birth month, refer to the list below and, again, note this last number carefully.

  • If you were born in January, the associated number is: 0
  • In February: 4
  • In March: 4
  • In April: 8
  • In May: 11
  • In June: 14
  • In July: 17
  • In August: 21
  • In September: 24
  • In October: 27
  • In November: 3
  • In December: 6

3) Add your results to your day of birth

Take your day of birth. Then add it to the number corresponding to your year and the number corresponding to your month that you have already noted.

  • If you get an amount between 0 and 28, go directly to “My moon sign is…below”.
  • If you get a sum between 29 and 54, remove 27
  • If you get a sum between 55 and 81, subtract 55
  • If you get an amount greater than 81, take off 82

And the results are in; my moon sign is…

If you get a sum of:

  • 0 or 1 or 27 or 28, your moon sign is ARIES
  • 2 or 3 or 4, you are TAURUS
  • 5 or 6, you are GEMINI
  • 7 or 8, you are CANCER
  • 9 or 10, you are LEO
  • 11 or 12 or 13, you are VIRGO
  • 14 or 15, you are LIBRA
  • 16 or 17, you are SCORPIO
  • 18 or 19, you are SAGITTARIUS
  • 20 or 21 or 22, you are CAPRICORN
  • 23 or 24, you are AQUARIUS
  • 25 or 26, you are PISCES

Astrologist Susan Taylor's insights:

'This component helps us to unravel certain mysteries that affect our behavior. Its activity shows us the path to follow in case of doubt, it enlightens us on our questions and allows us to understand that we all have abilities, each of us has the keys to assimilate them and know how to use them.'

What does your moon sign impact? It has 3 spheres of influence:

1) It determines the way you express your emotions

You will learn more about how you convey your feelings and emotions in different areas of your life. You’ll also learn more about your strengths and weaknesses, and could even find out which jobs are best suited to your personality. For example, if your sign in Gemini, it suggests you have great communication skills and writing abilities.

2) It impacts the areas or subjects you are sensitive to

Our natal charts are divided into twelve houses and each of them governs a specific area of your life. The presence of the Moon in a house indicates the area of life where you are most emotional. For example, if it occupies House II, it means that your satisfaction and frustrations are related to material possessions and that in love you tend to be possessive.

3) It decides what sun/zodiac signs are you get on well with

The natal chart tells you about your relationships with the other personalities. For example, a Gemini lunar will always get along with an Aries zodiac sign because both signs love to talk. By analyzing your natal chart, a knowledgeable astrologer will uncover every aspect of your personality, your strengths, weaknesses, your love compatibility, and upcoming events in your life.

➡️  Discover the meaning of the sun, moon and rising sign.

What is a birth chart?

Also known as a natal chart, it gives us a snapshot of the astral position at the exact time and place of your birth. By interpreting the configuration or interaction of the planets at the time of your birth, the astrologer will be able to determine not only your personality, but also your love compatibility. An astrologer does this by comparing your natal chart with your partner's chart. It allows the astrologer to know a person's potential for adaptation to the world and how he or she will represent the world.

Birth chart

By learning about your astrology birth chart, you will be able to discover what motivates you and what touches a nerve with you. This allows you to better define your life choices, and keep your emotions under control. You can also discover the lunar birth chart of your loved ones for a deeper understanding of them.

Hi there, I just have one question. In most charts based on my birth date and time, my moon sign comes up as Cancer but when I used the steps outlined here it came up as Leo. I relate more to Leo traits than the Cancer traits in the moon aspect of my chart so not sure which is it. My birth info is as follows Date - 15th May, 1975 Time - 4.00a.m Place - San Fernando, Trinidad & Tobago Would much appreciate any feedback, thanks so much :)

Thank yove you Emily grey nail milk
