Take Good Care of Your Moon Sign

This post was written by Anna

Born on August 22 (I won’t disclose the year), I was born on the cusp of the sun signs Leo and Virgo. I chose to enter this world at 7:15 am on that particularly hot day. That said, I was born almost a full four weeks premature; had I been born on my original planned date of September 22 (or even twelve hours later, for that matter), I would have been fully ensconced in the life of a Virgo.

virgoFor years, I could never understand why, if not truly a Virgo, I acted so much like one? I’m a perfectionist, extremely detail-oriented, and a hypochondriac to the extreme. My hair is not a mane of flowing locks, I suffer from severe stage fright, and I prefer to go relatively unnoticed. Once I learned a bit about astrology and took a peek at my chart, it occurred to me: not only was my Ascendant in Virgo, but my moon was in Virgo!

While your sun sign can be a great tool to understand your outer traits and talents, your moon sign has insight into your inner workings, and what keeps you going on a deeper level. The key to a healthy and happy life lies in balancing these two forces in your life.

We’ve got a great article, written by one of our contributors to our calendars and almanacs, that describes what each moon sign needs for sustenance and balance.

For me, I find that when I get upset, I tend to clean. Now, my house is already Virgo-spotless, but I find myself going through old files, donating unworn clothes, and just generally getting rid of unused and unnecessary items.

How do you feed your moon sign?

Hi, my Sun sign, Ascendant and a plethora of other planets are in Taurus and I truly am a typical Taurean, but My Moon is in Capricorn. It’s also an Earth sign as my sun sign, so you couldn get more down to earth and the most significant way my Moon shows its influense is the neer for security, especialy in financial matters and the need for physical security and comfort. My emotions quickly translate into body-symptoms like headache and pain in stomach and guess what heps me most? Herbal remedies, hot bath, sence of warmth and comfort. So I take into account my Moon sign whenever I need to take care of my emotions and general wellbeing.

My Moon Saturn and Neptune are conjunct and exalted in Libra (also unfortunately in my opinion in the 6th house ). I am an older Sag with Taurus rising with both Venus and Mars in Aquarius .
With My Moon in the sixth house and Venus and Mars in Aquarius I am almost a natural born Humanitarian – bridging upon radical for humanitarian causes . Yet the 6th house is the house of service employment slavery ( in ancient times . The down side of my moon is that I do have an emotional problem with athority ( I can’t even spell the word ). But I have a very real and sound sense of justice .
The Up side is the fact that I am able to grasp on many Levels mysteries of creation and the universe – being also open to it .
