What Is A Moon Sign? Explore Your Needs

What is a Moon Sign

What does the Moon Sign mean? 

The Moon Sign in astrology describes the instinctive and emotional part of your nature. It reveals your innate reactions, and what you need to feel comfortable or secure. Your Moon Sign illuminates your emotional, genetic and intuitive makeup. This will help you understand your needs and how to have them met.

It’s really important to know that whilst your Sun Sign describes qualities you are learning to develop and become, your Moon Sign shows what you already are.

We can think of The Moon therefore as the support actor, for she is the one who fills out the script and makes it realistic and believable. Equally as important in terms of your overall personality, together the Sun and Moon combine to drive much of your unique personality.

The Moon describes your usual responses, the bottom-line position to which you fall back as you make your way through the world. It is most common for us to behave more like our Moon sign when we are young, and then as we grow the strengths of our Sun sign start to emerge
