Once you know your Moon sign then read how it affects your Gemini Sun and unlock your emotional potential once and for all. That’s the power your Moon sign gives you!
Moon in Aries
Being active, both mentally and physically, is important to you. You love to study and have a vast knowledge on a variety of subjects. Intellectual stimulation is what drives you and it would be fair to say this is your No.1 turn-on in a partner and what ultimately makes you commit to them. That special someone needs to be able to match you wit-for-wit to keep you interested. There is a danger of relying too much on wits and natural cleverness rather than applied aptitude. Sarcasm is a defence mechanism used to bring down many an opponent but does little to earn you respect especially as you know how to cut to the quick and make it personal. I am not saying you may not on some level be justified at times, but you may get better results from trying other tactics rather than a military-style verbal assault! People admire your self-assuredness and you can be shrewd in business as you think strategically which can be a huge asset to you especially in the corporate world. You do need a little grounding as it is easy for you to get carried away by your enthusiasm and end up scattering your energy and achieving nothing as a result.
Moon in Taurus
The Taurus Moon gives much needed stability to this energetic sign. You are kind and patient with those less astute or clever as yourself though you do not let them know this. Therefore this, among other qualities, makes you quite popular. Good ideas and practical advice is always delivered with such grace that it is always received and usually acted upon. You are a hard worker and finish whatever task you undertake though you do find pleasure in artistic pursuits, especially those that stimulate you mentally. Do take care not to impose your forceful nature. You can appear very unassuming but this can allow you to push others to meet your own ends. Though unintentionally meant, it can appear to be abusive to some. Trust your judgement as it is your guiding light.
Moon in Gemini
The double dose of Gemini keeps you full of beans. Literally. You are mentally and physically active and will jump from one idea or project to the next before the last has been completed. Your life lesson is to harness that energy and focus it constructively. This is when you may need a well grounded partner, business or romantic, who can appreciate your intellect and potential, yet firm enough to give you much needed direction. Nervous tension is a source of concern so try to stop worrying and fidgeting so much. Try meditation as this will help you tap into your neglected emotional side and consolidate your mental processes. This may be difficult to start with as you have a deep need to connect and communicate with others but you may just benefit by learning to be alone and getting in touch with your deeper self.
Moon in Cancer
Gemini and Cancer are quite sociable signs so you like to be in touch with your feelings and are happy to share them with others especially when they are returned in kind. Unless you are, of course, sensing the other person is not on the level. Then you may hide your true feelings and keep quiet. Cancer can help your Gemini Sun focus better and retain more facts as it is the sign of a strong memory. You will need to have your guard up with stronger personalities as they can impose on your good will and nurturing nature. Gemini is the sign of the trickster, so you can usually sense when others are playing mind games, can instinctively know their next move and act accordingly. Try not to dwell on personal issues for too long. This can aggravate the nerves and you can be highly strung at the best of times. Put your mind and energy towards something more concrete to alleviate undue stress.
Moon in Leo
Moon in Leo gives Gemini much needed grounding as it helps give focus and the ability to prioritise to a usually scattered yet active intellect. You may find yourself sowing your wild oats when young as the fickleness of Gemini comes out to play and you do not like being held down for long. However Leo gives you a deep seated sincerity to your love affairs. Though when you meet “The One” that will be it as your emotional attachment and loyalty will stay firm unless they deeply wound your pride. You are a great leader as you express your ideas and communicate well with others and have a strong foundation of good sense. This earns you respect especially from your superiors. You know how to get along with people and your confidence shines through. But you do tend to get a little sulky if things do not go the way you plan. Try not to take it personally and let your Gemini Sun have some leeway to change to a new course of action.
Moon in Virgo
Mercury rules both Gemini and Virgo but gives a different energy to each of these signs. You have the mental acuity from Gemini and the analytical ability from Virgo so you certainly take a great deal of pleasure from intellectual stimuli. You have a good memory, are highly efficient and can critique information well. However there is a tendency to be overly critical and nit-picky over finicky trifles which can be blown out of proportion. This can increase unnecessary tension so please learn to relax and also let up on people and the world. They appreciate your candour as it is well meant. However going on about it can be a little tiresome. With that sharp mind, clear dry wit and facts to the ready, you can do anything you put your mind to.
Moon in Libra
You are a real team player as you enjoy working or being in the company of others but you do like your independence and need to act autonomously occasionally. Charm is your strength and you know how to use it well. Though you are susceptible to being influenced by others to keep the peace, you are able to persuade people to see your point of view when necessary. Too much talk but not enough action can describe you as you do have great ideas but can be very long winded trying to get them across. You would do well to have someone on hand to help edit your thoughts and get these concepts happening. However you are excellent company and with your fun and diplomatic nature you can often bring warring factions together to an amicable truce.
Moon in Scorpio
Here is someone with an emotional depth rarely seen in other Geminis though you do come across as a little cool. This is so others cannot sense your vulnerability but it also allows you to tune in and assess where people are coming from. You are extremely clever and insightful but do have a quick temper especially with those who are being forceful or imposing. Try not to revert to sarcasm though it is easy for you to do so as you do like to win the battle of words. You are capable of channelling those deep emotions into creative pursuits especially writing so when faced with a problem why not write it out or consider a profession where words are important – perhaps advertising, journalism or even the law? You have great will and determination and the energy to fulfil your potential though you need to focus on one or two projects at a time otherwise you will lose momentum.
Moon in Sagittarius
The energy here is highly excitable. Your need for adventure and the freedom to travel and explore may deter you from making any lifelong plans but you would make a good teacher or academic. You love knowledge and the mental exploration this entails and can share all you know or learn with ease. There is a tendency to know a little about a lot so do try to study particular subjects of interest a little further. You are thought to have a bad case of “foot-in-mouth” disease as you are quite blunt with what you say as you do not think about it first. However you do not mean to hurt people and expect them to forgive you as quickly as you do. You are usually perceptive of other people’s emotions so do tap into that gift before you speak. Once that is under control your diplomacy and tact will be well appreciated as deep down you have a kind and honest nature.
Moon in Capricorn
This combination makes you not only good in business but gives you an outgoing and extroverted persona to match. You inspire confidence and people relax with you though you do tend to use this to your advantage. When they let their guard down you can go in for the kill as you do not seem to pick up on their feelings. This can make you seem cold and calculating even if your intentions are honourable and fair. The Gemini nervous tension is well controlled with the Moon in here though it would not hurt for you to let your own guard down once in a while and let others see a warmer side to your ambitious nature.
Moon in Aquarius
Here is a broad minded individual who can see potential in new ideas and concepts. You have the ability to pick trends or see where change is happening in people’s ideology and act accordingly. You are literally ‘ahead of the next wave’ and this could lead to success if you exploit this talent. You can organise your thoughts and articulate your perceptions clearly as well as see the big picture. Though you have a wide range of friends you come across as aloof or detached as a means to retaining your individuality and uniqueness in the collective. You do keep your unorthodox views to yourself but you could be missing out on an opportunity to share with others. They may have similar or differing opinions too. But do not begrudge them of that. Accept this as it means you can expand upon your own ideas and knowledge as well as some new perspectives too.
Moon in Pisces
Pisces and Gemini are both very changeable and unfortunately this can make you seem unreliable or scattered to some. Don’t let these people undermine your self-confidence however as you have great depth to your personality. You are highly creative, sensitive and more aesthetic than most. However, you don’t cope well with stress and tend to revert to daydreaming to escape. You need to ensure you create a harmonious environment for yourself as this will help you stay centred and focused. You have a lovely nature, understanding, intuitive, sympathetic and healing. Do not dwell too much on what you think are personal failings. Accept yourself and look to your strengths, then value and nurture them. This may help you from drifting into fantasy as a coping mechanism.
