In astrology, Moon represents numerous things, such as early upbringing, emotional reactions, relationship with receptivity, our most private self, etc. Let's look at each Moon Sign and what each placement says about us.
Moon in Aries (Astrology): During your childhood, you were most likely very physically active and perhaps participated in sports. You are extremely courageous and there's a bit of childishness deep inside you. Your emotional reactions can be careless and insensitive.
Moon in Taurus (Astrology): Your childhood felt wonderful, even if it wasn't so in reality. You are at ease within yourself and crave comfort and security most of all. On a darker side, your emotional reactions can be inflexible and almost artificial.
Moon in Gemini (Astrology): Your childhood felt dry and unstable. You probably didn't get the emotional warmth you think you should have gotten. There is distrust of emotions. On a brighter side, you are a curious person and crave knowledge on regular bases.
Moon in Cancer (Astrology): Your childhood was a deeply emotional experience. You are highly sensitive and emotionally aware. You love to nurture those you care about. On a darker side, you have a hard time venturing out of your emotional comfort zone and letting go of established connections.
Moon in Leo (Astrology): During your youth, you were often in the spotlight: center of attention. Your emotions are expressive and grand. You crave praise and admiration. On a darker side, you can be self-absorbed and narcissistic.
Moon in Virgo (Astrology): Your childhood caretakers seem cold and distant to you. You are suspicious of emotions and emotional reactions. On a brighter note, you are extremely humble and intelligent.
Moon in Libra (Astrology): You were a social kid, always part of a group. You try to keep your emotions and emotional reactions neat and balanced. On a darker side, your interactions and connections can seem insincere.
Moon in Scorpio (Astrology): Your childhood was intense, maybe even traumatic. You are not superficial by any means. Your emotions and emotional reactions are volatile. On a brighter note, you are instinctual and protective of yourself and those you love.
Moon in Sagittarius (Astrology): Your childhood seems like a breeze: it was full of laughter, joy and gifts. Nothing seems to faze you. Your emotional reactions can often be inappropriate and out of proportion. You also tend to be irresponsible.
Moon in Capricorn (Astrology): Your childhood feels like a disaster, with one bad event after the other. You feel abandoned by your parents. You wonder: can it get worse? On a brighter note, you are tenacious and have a backbone of steel.
Moon in Aquarius (Astrology): This is another social Moon Sign, like Moon in Libra. Your childhood was spent around friends and community. You rather not be alone. Your emotional reactions are calculated and performed mechanically. Emotionally detached, you can be aloof.
Moon in Pisces (Astrology): Your early upbringing was blurry and chaotic. You are idealistic and can't seem to keep your feet on the ground. Your emotional reactions are passive and indirect. On a brighter note, you can be super empathetic and creative.
