Discover the meaning of your Moon Sign. Learn how understanding your Aries Moon will help you know what you need.

Born with the Moon in Aries, you are likely to need to do things on your own. Independent from an early age, you will feel most comfortable when left to your own devices.

Your dynamic approach is one of your best qualities. You are likely to have an abundance of energy to direct toward the things you feel passionate about. You need to experience the thrill of taking action and getting new projects off the ground.

You will feel at your best when in charge of your own life, and in some way doing your own thing.  Your need for autonomy is paramount.  You probably grew up either “on your own” somehow, or with a mother who was also very independent. You know how to take care of yourself.

As a natural pioneer, you can see the opportunities that present in every idea. You need to create new possibilities, so will thrive in environments that allow you to initiate and take charge.

You like pace and fast results. You may need to learn to have more patience. Waiting will probably be hard for you. You may feel that if something is worth doing then it should therefore happen NOW

At best, you are passionate, spontaneous and independent. With the Moon in Aires you can make your mind up quickly. You may also find it easy to let go of connections and move on.

Born with an innate sense of idealism as well as willingness to fight for what you think is true, you will put your considerable energies behind any cause that you believe in.

You have a pioneering streak in you. You probably either developed this when young or saw this somewhere in your mother. Your need for space to do your own thing suggests you will be happiest when left to your own devices, and most of all you will detest being told what to do.

You can devote yourself to an ideal, and may have learned the meaning of bravery from an early age. Your courage can be an inspiration to others, and you do will best when you direct your energies toward achieving worthwhile outcomes that benefit others as much as you.

You will find that you need to be assertive and so will probably feel drawn to any area that lets you compete, take charge or lead. Even if you can’t “steer the ship”, you will feel as if you should be, and may sometimes need to slow down long enough to let others have control.

You need strength from partners and honesty from friends. You have a warrior-like quality about you. You probably prefer to deal with things head-on, and get straight to the point where possible.

You are likely to call ‘a spade a spade’, and will be largely self-sufficient on an emotional level. Like a soldier or athlete, you can endure hardship when it suits, and may also expect others to do the same.

The Moon in Aries lends emotional independence. You are likely to be drawn to stimulating people and situations who give you the freedom to be who you want. You can become easily bored, and will respond best to those who challenge you somehow.

You may be quick to react, ready to forgive and but also easily hurt. You are likely to enjoy the space to be your own person, and will feel trapped if others try to limit you.

You will need to learn when it is time to do your own thing, versus time to include different points of view. The influence of other features in your birth chart will reveal how easily this is done.

Because you love getting things started, you don’t wait for permission to begin. Unless your chart is made up of other opposing qualities you may need to learn how to compromise more so as to include others needs.

The Moon in Aries is a signature of vision combined with action. You need to see if you can accomplish what you set your mind to, and because of this you will probably resist others attempts to define you.

For some with the Moon in Aries, there will be pronounced entrepreneurial qualities learnt from an early age. You may have grown up in a family where one or both parents worked for themselves or had an abundance of ideas they wanted to see come into fruition.

Therefore you may feel frustrated in your career path unless you have the chance to test yourself in the market to find out what you can create.

The spirit of Aries Moon is expressed in the words of Steve Jobs, a visionary born with the Moon in Aries and an entrepreneur’s streak 


Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary


The sign of Aries is connected with the planet Mars, the god of war. You may have a quick temper and little patience when it comes to getting what you want.

You need to feel the thrill of competition and will do best when faced with a challenge (or three) to overcome

Your reactions tend to be spontaneous and direct, but you may need to recognize that not everyone responds as quickly as you do.

You are likely to rely on intuition when making up your mind. You can make decisions in an instant, before moving on to what’s next. You need the faith to trust your instincts, and chance to share your dreams with those who believe in you

Born with the Moon in Aries, you need the freedom the express your individuality, and the opportunity to find out what you can achieve on your own


I think if you do something and it turns out pretty good, then you should go do something else wonderful, not dwell on it for too long. Just figure out what’s next. – Steve Jobs, Moon in Aries
