What Is My Moon Sign?

What Is My Moon Sign?

Sun = conscious, Moon = subconscious.

The position of the Moon in your horoscope is second only in importance to the position of the Sun. The Sun sign is the part of you that is most apparent on the surface; it is what others see. The Moon sign is the part of you that you see.

In astrology the Moon stands for emotions, instincts, the unconscious.Whereas the Sun represents your will, the Moon represents your instinctive reactions. 

The Sun’s influence as a vital force and the Moon as an unconscious force. In essence, the Moon represents the side of you that reacts before you have time to think.

The distinction in astrology between the influence of the Sun and the Moon is a forerunner of Sigmund Freud’s theory of the ego and the id in human personality. According to Freud, the ego is a person’s consciousness (symbolized in astrology by the Sun), and the id represents a person’s instinct (the Moon).

In many ways your Moon personality can be the one you keep hidden.

Of course, this is not the complete picture of the Moon’s influence on your personality. It is also your Moon side that can spontaneously feel and express joy and pleasure, the side that reacts to emotional stimuli.

It is the part of you that enjoys the little sensualities of life—the perfumed aroma of flowers, the smell of the grass after it rains, the delight of a long, hot shower. The Moon is inextricably linked to what might be called your reaction.

So, where can I find my moon sign out? 

Two sites that I've really enjoyed are: Cafe Astrology & The Co-Star App

All that's needed is where and when you were born, plus the exact time of birth. This will give you a birth chart describing where every single planet (and moon) was during your birth! Pretty neat stuff. Enjoy!
