1The Moon is said to rule your personality, while the Sun rules your individuality, while the Ascendant Sun dictates our outer appearance and mannerisms.  Moon is the closest ‘planet’ to Earth, this satellite literally zips around the zodiac, completing its circuit in less than a month. It also touches us more deeply than most planets.

As the ruler of the tides, it is fitting that the Moon should be the ruler of our emotions. In fact, The Moon Sign has given more importance in Astrology than Sun Sign. You may be surprised to know that the Moon Sign reflects more on your personality and your life than your Sun Sign. By knowing the reading of your Moon Sign, you will be able to know how much the Moon affects your personality. The descriptions are quite general, but may reveal you some significant information about you.Technically speaking, the Moon Sign means the position of your moon in a particular sign during your time of birth. The Moon spends roughly 2 1/2 days in each sign and takes 28 days to circumnavigate the zodiac. It is feminine energy and rules Cancer and the Fourth House. Moon Signs help define our emotional development, or express the unconscious side of our personality. It explains why we do what we do. This is where we retreat for comfort, childhood memories, and peace. This can also be the place where anger, hate, jealousy and fear may be found. The Moon also influences our senses depending on its placement in the birth chart. Most people will have their Moon in a Sign that is different from their Sun. This is why many people with the same Sun Sign can be so different from each other. They may feel that when they read a description of their Sign, that it is not representative of them. It may feel incomplete, or even completely inaccurate. Moon Signs may be a much more accurate description of what a person is like.

The Zodiac Sign where the Moon was present when you were born into this world is your Moon sign. When the Moon is in a certain sign of the zodiac, then the characteristics of that sign will change the moon’s expression. The Moon represents the more impressionist side and the inner feelings and emotions portraying us from within. It indicates how we express our nurturing instinct and the style of immediate emotional-feeling response to experiences. With an altogether mysterious side, Moon shows our hidden aspects.If your Moon Sign is the same as your Sun Sign, you may find that it amplifies the traits of that Sign. This would make you a “double” of your Sign, such as a “double Gemini.” The Moon also governs the heart, stomach, brain, bladder, bowels and the left eye. It has influence with the glands and fluids of the body.

The Moon goes through the entire Zodiac within its 28 day cycle and enters a new zodiac sign approximately every 2 1/2 days. The position of the transiting moon (moon’s current position) helps determine the general moods of people. The moon sign positions greatly influence the outcomes of events involving human interactions. When the Moon is in certain zodiac, the characteristics of that zodiac sign color the moon’s expression. The moon rules over issues related to family and interaction among family members, social gatherings and general proceedings in the home environment. All the above incidents are greatly affected by moon’s sign position. The moon sign, when taken in combination with the Sun sign, tells about a person and is an essential part of learning about yourself.

You may get stressed out easily, and the more people you discuss your issues with, the more confused you may become. Scorpio Moons also deal with a lot of stress, but tend to keep it all under wraps. Jealousy may be a big problem for a person with a Scorpio Moon. Aries Moons are headstrong, aggressive and may be difficult to control. They do best if they can find a physical outlet for their emotions, like sports.

The basic principle is the internal self-awareness. Its purpose is self-development. Recognizing four aims in life: kama, artha, dharma and moksa, which are shown in the natal chart through the houses.

The Indian astrology, also known as Hindu astrology and more recently as Vedic astrology uses the traditional Hindu system of astrology Jyotisha (or Jyotish from the Sanskrit word jyotisa, derived from jyotis = “light, heavenly body”).

Dated about 7000 years ago and is considered an integral part of life and culture of India. They came from visions of the ancient prophets and the knowledge passed through the centuries by oral tradition. Part of the knowledge was lost, but the heart of this knowledge still exists.

Nearly everybody knows his “zodiac sign” or sun sign, but not that many their moon sign and their moon type. The zodiac sign of  a person it is the sign, in which the sun stood at birth. This is what you perhaps look for in the horoscope pages of the daily paper. This sun sign stands for the “male” part of the human being. But there  also exists a “female” side – that is, what the moon sign stands for. The moon sign or the moon horoscope betrays a lot about our conscious and subconscious emotional world. Some things, which remain inexplicable by viewing just the zodiac sign, find their solution by taking into account the moon sign. Have fun in your exploration! The moon sign is neither the “zodiac sign” nor the ascendant, which it has been mistaken for once in a while. The moon, just like the sun, is constantly moving from one Zodiac sign to another. But if the sun stays in each Zodiac sign for approximately a month, the moon moves from sign to sign every two or three days.

Only once a month, at the time of a “new” moon and the next to it day or two, the moon is in the same sign as the sun. The orientation of our emotions is very dependent on the position of the moon in Zodiac, as well as our interest and inclination to this or another sphere of life and activity. What does the moon do? It shows what exactly people perceive. Moon is the “Yin” planet, night luminary, it opens the “Yin” number of planets and is associated with the unconscious inner world of a person, that’s why by the position of the moon in the natal chart we can judge what will this or another person unconsciously notice, and how he will be unconsciously reacting. The moon as a fastest planet is showing the most rapid response, i.e., the first reaction of a person to any event. Also the moon shows what a given person will tend to see in any event, what will be the first to perceive, to which reactions a given person will be subconsciously ready. It is very difficult to see a pure manifestation of the moon – to achieve this; the rational control has to be taken away. In some cases, the reaction of moon can be clearly seen under the strong influence of alcohol or after a strong shock – a state when the rational principles in person are destroyed.

In this kind of cases the moon is explicitly manifested. In the ordinary state it is heavily disguised, because the conscious behavior is dominant, especially for men, for women – to a lesser extent, among them the moon can be seen in the normal state of consciousness, so, of course, any descriptions of the planets in signs – are just a purified patterns of a human behavior, because in life the influences of different planets are mixed. And therefore rarely those descriptions that we will give are found in their pure forms. They appear as some sort of trends. You can rarely see in a person a pure full-description. Normally only one or two features are more or less clearly manifested, and when you will study the synthesis of all the manifestations of the planets, it will be molded into a form closer to a real human behavior. Planets in signs – are some sort of analytical nodes, parts of which we will try to gather. Moon Signs help define our emotional development, or express the unconscious side of our personality. It explains why we do what we do. This is where we retreat for comfort, childhood memories, and peace. This can also be the place where anger, hate, jealousy and fear may be found.
