The Private You

In astrology, the Moon is the inner reality of the spirit, and your emotional base. The Moon is your comfort zone.  It hints at what kinds of things feed your spirit, and your instinctive nature.

There's some mystery to muse on with the Moon.  It holds clues to your ancestral heritage, past lives, and the emotional atmosphere that shaped you. Your Moon sign, house and aspects reveal what role Mother played, and how you now manage the feminine, receptive side of your nature.

Find out about your Moon by looking for the symbol on the birth chart.

Aries Moon Feels well-being when expressing emotions in a fiery, direct (often impulsive) way. Shows love through actions, and needs to stay challenged to be happy.

Capricorn Moon Finds it comforting to work, as part of an innate need to achieve and experience worldly success. Can be deeply private and reluctant to share feelings, but with a reservoir of emotional depth to draw from.

Aquarius Moon Has an emotional detachment that lends a broad, abstract vision, making them able to see how things are interconnected. Can be self-contained, and solitary, but comes alive in the larger sphere of groups.
