Your Moon Sign i.e. where the moon was when you were born, is a very important and influential aspect in your birth chart. Your Sun Sign and Moon Sign are calculated in a similar manner, yet are completely different from each other. You can get your moon sign accurately assessed by calculating the date, month, year, hour and minute (s) when you were born. Since the moon moves into a different sign every 2-3 days, it is extremely important to know your time of birth to calculate your Moon Sign. Moon is the fastest moving planet in the Zodiac. It goes through the entire Zodiacal circle in 28 days, unlike the Sun and other planets, which take longer periods. This is why, for instance, a Libra born on October 1st could be quite different from a Libra born on October 3rd.
Moon sign predictions are considered more accurate as they are more elaborate and tend to take into consideration every aspect of celestial activity. This is one of the reasons why Vedic astrology follows Moon sign predictions. Another reason why Moon Signs hold significant in Vedic Astrology is because it governs the mind, which has been given prime importance in Indian astrology. Indian Astrologers predict day to day life scenarios based on the Moon Sign. They believe that your moon sign can reveal crucial information related to your character, nature, behaviour, and your inherent attributes. According to Traditional Astrology, the Moon Sign represents the characteristics a person inherits from his/her parents. However, astrologers believe that since the Moon sign governs a person’s mind and emotions, it shows the way a person (instinctively) faces different situations.
The Moon is said to rule your personality and your soul. Your moon sign shapes your emotions. It greatly influences your subconscious- your deepest needs, and what can help you feel emotionally secure. Your moon sign can be important in your life in many ways. It can help determine your life path and luck. You can also get your mental compatibility with another person, (born under a certain Moon sign), analysed using this.
Here’s what your Moon Sign has to say about you-
Aries Moon: People under the Aries Moon tend to be impulsive yet are active learners. They seek autonomy, and challenges, and love to finish any task first.
Taurus Moon: People under the Taurus moon sign are quite mentally stable. However, what they need is affection, and beauty around them. This can sometimes leave them insecure.
Gemini Moon: The twin sign tends to have a dualistic mind. They are always looking for new ideas and a stimulating dialogue. They get drawn to kindred spirits and people who mirror their thoughts and feelings.
Cancer Moon: The sensitive and nurturing sign, people under the Cancer Moon sign seek comfort from family members. They tend to fear abandonment and can at times require a lot of reassurances.
Leo Moon: Born leaders, they inspire others with their confidence and charisma. They love attention, and are constantly seeking excitement and a conquest. Those under the Leo Moon need someone to celebrate life with them.
Virgo Moon: The pragmatic Virgin looks for order in the everyday life. They like to feel helpful and be of service to others. Since they love mental stimulation, they are always looking for some or the other problem to solve.
Libra Moon: Under the Moon Sign of Libra, people constantly seek balanced minds. They need harmony and equality. They tend to hate conflict and crave a peaceful and aesthetically pleasing environment.
Scorpio Moon: Their minds tend to be quite unsteady. People under Scorpio Moon seek privacy and a sort of ‘soul bonding’ with others. Anyone who wins their confidence earns their eternal loyalty.
Sagittarius Moon: People under the Sagittarius Moon Sign tend to be religious. They look for wisdom in adventure, and get attracted to ‘worldly' people and situations. They are constantly seeking new experiences, as they get bored easily.
Capricorn Moon: This stable, yet rigid Moon Sign needs someone with firm boundaries and ambition. They crave solitude and time to recharge, and can often be emotionally distant, which can be depressive or melancholy at times.
Aquarius Moon: Another social Moon Sign, Aquarians, love making friends. But this rebellious moon also craves a strong sense of individuality. Because they do not like to be ‘tied down’, they need autonomy and freedom.
Pisces Moon: The most sympathetic and emotional Moon sign, Pisces are often quite spiritual beings. Driven by their creativity, they tend to spend their time fantasising and looking for creative outlets.
