The Moon Signs, Partnered
This week, let’s look at the moon signs. If you don’t already know yours, you can calculate it by using an astrological chart generator, which helps you discern where the moon was at the time of your birth. Most people default to thinking about sun signs when considering the zodiac, and while your sun sign does influence some major aspects of your personality, those tend to be the things that the sun is connected to spiritually. As such, your sun sign holds sway over your outward energy and your passions, as well as the face you show the world. In contrast, the moon influences the internal world. It informs the way people think about themselves, the dreams they have, and the internal desires and motivations they hold.
This Daily Focus analyzes the moon signs in pairs, based on which ones share fundamental, connecting tenets. While the duos below aren’t necessarily the most compatible, sometimes opposites attract. These are moon signs that ultimately understand each other on a fundamental and potentially spiritual level.

“The moon moves through the zodiac much faster than the sun, changing signs roughly every two days and creating an ever-changing landscape astrologically.”
The moon is the closest celestial body to earth. As such, it moves far more quickly in relation to earth than any of the far-off planets do. The moon changes signs roughly every other day, often slipping into a state known as “void of course,” in which the moon briefly occupies no sign at all. This can last for minutes or even hours. On void of course days, it can be hard to get things done. Keeping track of where the moon is can often be a great first step for those who are just learning to understand the astrological atmosphere.

“The Cancer and Pisces Moons are linked to water, making us emotional and insecure. Moon-ruled Cancer is at home in this melancholy, but Pisces can find it off-putting.”
The water signs are generally big feelers, a trait that has its pros and cons. When this energy is turned inward, as it is when you have a water-based moon sign, it can be a bit overwhelming. Water moons tend to agonize over things more than the other moon signs. Luckily, they also tend to be the biggest dreamers. When the moon is in either of these signs, it’s time to reflect on and think about your desires. Consider where they’re being met and where they are not.

“Leo and Aries are both fire signs, and as moon signs, they inspire us to create. People with this natal sign will be drawn toward art, music, craftsmanship, carpentry, writing, and anything that involves creation.”
When the moon is in either Leo or Aries, it’s a great time to tackle new projects. This fiery energy is great for creating and working on things. People born under the Aries Moon are particularly good at exploring new ideas, while Leo Moons are best suited for new ventures in areas where they know they’ll find success.

“Sagittarius and Aquarius are fire and air signs respectively, but both of them have a fiercely independent aspect. When the moon is in either of these signs, it’s time to shake things up, redefine boundaries, and lead the way.”
Sagittarius is the great explorer, and Aquarius is the out-of-the-box thinker. These signs are both unique, and they like it that way. Neither does well with conformity or traditional, everyday values. As moon signs, they create free thinkers. When the moon is in either of these signs, you may feel restless, or like you want to declare your own unique place in the world.

“The earthy Capricorn and Virgo Moons are careful and meticulous. People with these natal moons are long-term planners who can address even emotions analytically.”
Earth signs are known for being stubborn, hardworking, and literal. As moon signs, these traits can manifest as a sense of seriousness. They are often great planners and organizers, but they can be hypercritical of themselves. When this energy is in the air, be careful that you aren’t too hard on yourself, and don’t take on too much at once. Your feelings of stability can end up in flux as the moon changes.

“Scorpio, a water sign, and Taurus, an earth sign, are both intense, introspective, and loyal moon signs. People with these natal signs have an intense, often attractive energy. Scorpio is known for its loyalty, intensity, and sensuality. Taurus, connected to Venus, is about pleasure, luxury, and…yep, loyalty.”
As moon signs, both Scorpio and Taurus can be a bit intense. There is a distinct sensual energy to both placements, and people with these natal moons probably come off as attractive in ways that can be hard to identify. When the moon is in Scorpio, people might be more inclined to engage in a saucy hook-up. Meanwhile, when it’s in Taurus, people may start thinking about what type of partner or partners they want in the long term.

“When the moon is in air signs Gemini and Libra, restlessness, flirtatiousness, and self-awareness are emphasized. These natal signs constantly explore and reinvent their identities.”
People born with air moons, especially Libra and Gemini Moons, may be dissatisfied when they get what they thought they wanted. As the fixed sign of the bunch, Aquarius manages to escape this curse a bit. Unfortunately, for the others, the chase is always more exciting than the catch. When the moon is in either Libra or Gemini, people might feel intellectually stimulated. They could also be in the mood to problem solve, hunt down answers, or get to the bottom of something.
