Calculate Your Moon Sign & Discover Its Impact On Your PersonalityDid 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 your knowledge on your personality. 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; and this is even more so the case for women. Our Astrologer, Susan Taylor, unveils the secrets of this influential 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. 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.
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.
