Once you know your Moon sign then read how it affects your Aries Sun and unlock your emotional potential once and for all. That’s the power your Moon sign gives you!
Moon in Aries
The energy of this double fire placement can be explosive. There is a quickness of wit, thought and react to issues or events that stir an emotional or passionate response. You have a very dynamic personality that draws people in due to the sheer magnetism of your energy or inspired by your impulsiveness and independence. Patience is not your best quality and is sorely tested with the Sun and Moon in this sign. Your brashness can be charming to some but crushing to more sensitive souls. Your life lesson is to curb that directness and develop the skill of stopping still and to consider the feelings of others. But more importantly, allowing others to get close to you and understanding that by sharing you are not being needy. Your emotional independence is a great quality but it denies you intimacy if you hold onto it too tightly.
Moon in Taurus
This refined placement can give the usually abrasive Aries poise and an air of stability. The emotions are in check as the reaction to demanding situations may seem slow or more controlled. Unless possessions or assets are under threat that is! You have the ability to express your emotional needs clearly and succinctly without upsetting anyone. There is a tendency, however, to be domineering as you can be stubbornly passionate when it comes to having your own way. Try to relax the reins once in a while and think of the needs and happiness of those around you. Even though you know you hold all the cards in any relationship – not everyone needs to know.
Moon in Gemini
There is a tendency to verbalise. A lot. Ideas, emotions, opinions you share these in order to process information and to formulate a plan of action. That’s all well and good but taking time out to be alone to reflect on what others are saying rather than just talking and what needs to be heard rather than speaking before thinking, will keep you out of hot water. Luckily you have the gift of the gab and can use your wits and good intentions to get you out of trouble.
Moon in Cancer
Sensitive, intuitive and nurturing Moon in Cancer can give Sun in Aries an emotional edge to a somewhat tactless individual. You can sense the feelings of others so can temper your assertiveness appropriately and therefore put more thought into your actions and reactions. The negative side to this could be a tendency of being too defensive, even in non-threatening situations. You can be overzealous with standing up or protecting those you love from insult or injury from others. Just be aware not to over dramatise a situation or take yourself too seriously.
Moon in Leo
This combination fits a natural born leader. You have a great deal of confidence in your ability which attracts people to you, especially as this makes you an adventurous and exciting person to know. Being able to organise your mind with the energy, ambition and tenacity of Aries can make you popular and inspirational as you can get the job done and see it through. People respect you for this and respond well do your open, warm hearted approach to those around you. The down side is the tendency to be overbearing or arrogant, especially when you have lost your patience with someone who has challenged you. Remember to smile and breathe in even if you want to roar!
Moon in Virgo
Cool, calm and collected is the best way to describe you. The efficient, analytical and exacting nature of Virgo allows Aries to prioritise and channel that abundance of energy into practical concerns. This means that you not only get the job done but usually get it right the first time. You can be a little harsh or too hard with others who do not meet your exacting standards especially with work. There is also a tendency to be too focused on the job and not enough on having fun. You do not need to get fun right, you just need to relax and enjoy the moment. Try to be a little spontaneous from time to time. By lightening up you can develop a better relationship with those around you, colleagues in particular. And learn to be constructively critical. It’s a great skill to have and, as you lead by example, you can inspire others to take more responsibility for themselves.
Moon in Libra
While Sun in Aries is very independent, Moon in Libra can be very dependent but sympathetic and naturally understanding of others and their needs. Any decisive act may be followed by wanting reassurance you have done the right thing as you still want to be fair. Though freedom is highly valued you are in danger of being dominated by others through your need of support. However, that is also due to wanting to maintain the peace. If this is compromised you will be able to assert yourself amicably to regain that much needed balance.
Moon in Scorpio
Here is an individual who is very driven, especially if change is necessary, you find a way to accomplish this goal. If it does not go according to plan, rather than give in, you find another way to go about it. The Moon in Scorpio can amplify Aries fear of vulnerability so you may overcompensate by coming across as self-sufficient and capable. Therefore when you need the occasional bit of TLC it does not always come to you. So you just may have to take a deep breath and ask. You may know a lot of people but your intuition will guide you to which close friend you can confide in.
Moon in Sagittarius
Sun in Aries and Moon in Sagittarius has a dream. You have a philosophy of life and the ability to share these ideals to a wide audience with you dynamic appeal. There is a tendency to brush over the facts if they conflict with your beliefs and you can be tough on those nay sayers who cannot see your vision. This combination gives a directness of speech that can make many believe you are insensitive. This is not the case. You just do not understand or appreciate emotional sensibilities and do not see the logic in playing games to get your point across. This placement sees the big picture but the life lesson is to finish the finer details.
Moon in Capricorn
This placement can give the naturally ambitious Aries a cool demeanor. Goals may not be achieved quickly but you do not seem to mind. You know where you are going and have planned a deliberate and lasting course of action. The Arian brashness is tempered with patience and an ability to set aside redundant or unproductive concepts and emotions that can hinder your progress. There is a danger of putting ambitions ahead of your loved ones. That is because your success can be a cover up for insecurity. Confide in a loved one as they may be able to nurture and support you in fulfilling your goals.
Moon in Aquarius
Once people get to know you they find you to be very social though unpredictable. Some would say you’re a trend setter as you can pick up on what is up to date and happening in the collective and push ahead with your individualistic style. You can be quick to judge people or a situation. This can be great but in other circumstances it can be a failing to others. Your natural aloofness can alienate recipients of any judgement as they will feel demeaned and resentment can be the result. Though you like your independence you need to stay in touch with people to maintain your social skills.
Moon in Pisces
You have a highly emotional side to an otherwise fiery personality, though you give the impression of strength and vocalise when you feel put upon. This covers up an acute sensitivity whereby you feel and internalise thoughtless comments. You have a tendency to day dream and do a lot of soul searching. You have to learn to harness the Aries energy to stay focused as there is a lot of potential to help others with your kind, intuitive and caring nature.
Understanding the energy of our Moon sign just leads to us leading happier lives – and better connections with all the people around us. So, utilise yours and open up emotional strengths you never knew you had – all courtesy of the Moon!
