  • 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…

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. 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, 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.

Calculate your rising sign here and figure out your descendant sign -


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.

Astrologist Susan Taylor

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:

Sphere 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.

Sphere 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.

Sphere 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.

Editor in Chief and Astrologist for MyAstroMag - I’ve always been completely fascinated by the world of Astrology and horoscopes. Writing for you and forecasting my exclusive predictions are my main passions.

I have Scorpio moon and rising. My last breakup was traumatic and agonizing. I was so jealous of my ex with anyone else I'd torture myself. Not only did I want to kill any female that he was with, but I wanted to do it with my own hands - strangle them, knock their teeth down their throat, disembowel. Frighteningly jealous indeed. Good thing he moved to California.
