03 Apr What Does Your Moon Sign Say About You?
In astrology, the position of the moon in your chart can tell you a lot. It’s influence is second only to the sun.
Your sun sign describes your mind, will, ego or personality; the side of yourself that you present to the world. Your moon sign, on the other hand, is related to your emotions, your instincts, your subconscious. It tells you about your inner world, your emotional needs, the parts of you that are often dark, hidden, even repressed.
Which is exactly why it’s so important to know your moon sign, and learn what it can teach you!
By bringing these hidden parts of yourself to light, you can know yourself, your needs and your nature, more completely. And you can do a much better job of honoring yourself, loving yourself, and making sure that your needs are met!
Start by consulting a chart (or a free website like this one) to determine your moon sign. All you need to know is the day and place you were born. Once you have it, read on to find out what your moon sign says about you!
