Where your moon sign is is incredibly important to how you relate to other people particularly in your romantic relationships. Moon sign represents how you are emotionally and usually your karmic relationship to your mother. It’s how you tend to respond emotionally and how you felt in childhood. Some people say the Moon sign is particularly important to women but I feel it is equally important to all as we are all Yin/Yang.
The moon is a brilliant thing to look at when entering a relationship with someone as it will give you a good idea about how they will respond in a love relationship and how deep they can go. Someone with Moon in Aquarius for instance may tend to intellectualise their emotions and be a free spirit where someone with Moon in Pisces will have a lot of intuition and emotional empathy.

Moon in Aries people probably had an independent strong mother and learnt very quickly to be independent emotionally themselves although they do crave constant attention and can be demanding in love. Life will never be boring with a Moon in Aries person as they strive to make you laugh and seek to conquer you emotionally. Passionate and full on they respond well to people who have Moon in a water sign so that they can be a hero.
