You may already know that your Sun sign influences how you view the world, but did you know that your Moon sign does, too? Ancient astrologers focus more on a person's Moon sign to determine their personality than their Sun sign. Western Astrology focuses on a person's Sun sign.

If you're curious to know what your Moon sign is or see your complete chart you can find it here with this birth chart calculator for free. All you need is the date and time you were born.

According to ancient astrology, your Moon sign is the key to your fate. When the Sun enters your zodiac sign's house, blessings and big changes take place, but what I've learned is that these changes are also influenced by my Moon sign.

Every zodiac sign is affected by the different phases of the moon as it travels through different Houses of the Zodiac each month. Depending on what sign you are, the moon sign will either heighten or undermine certain traits specific to your zodiac sign.

What do your sun sign and moon sign mean? In astrology, your sun sign is the most prominent. It determines who you are and what your personality is like per your zodiac sign.

Your moon sign is also influential, as it determines your daily emotions and moods. As your moon sign changes, so does your state of mind.

Right now I am a Moon in Sagittarius with Sun in Scorpio and let me tell you, I have noticed! I’m normally very outgoing and constantly on my phone and checking social media.

But once my moon went into Sagittarius, I have basically been a hermit. I haven’t wanted to talk to anyone — I have literally not texted anyone back all day — and I’ve gone MIA on Instagram and Twitter. I have just wanted to stay home with a good book, a cold beer, and my cat! There is nothing wrong with that, obviously, but it is so unlike me.

My moon sign is very outgoing and extroverted, but my sun sign undermined that. It basically has me as the opposite of a Sagittarius right now because my sun sign is saying, “leave me alone!” It’s actually very cool to see how the planets and moon and their alignments can affect different people in different ways. Do you know how each moon sign affects you directly?

If you’ve ever noticed a change in your energy but never really looked into your horoscope or what may have caused you to be more introverted than usual or have a shorter temper than you normally do, this might help you out.


The Scorpio Sun/Scorpio Moon combination is an extremely powerful one. It calls for a rollercoaster of feelings and attitudes, as the Scorpio Moon is ruled by emotions. 

You may be extremely passionate, borderline overbearing, and emotional one day and able to hide any and all emotions, have a crazy short temper and hide behind the doors of their house the next. You can never really know what to expect with a Scorpio when the moon is also in Scorpio — just know passion will be in everything you do.

This is a great time for advances at work or doing some work on the house. The high levels of passion at this time will allow a Scorpio to get what they want through utter determination, so go for that promotion! Creativity is also at an all-time high. What better time to redo your kitchen or paint your bedroom? A Scorpio Moon is one hell of an experience.

The Gemini Moon has a difficult time expressing feelings and avoids being alone.

With the Gemini Moon, you’ll be extra emotional but will not know how to express all of these emotions pouring in. Make sure you are aware that these feelings are exaggerated so you don’t upset those around you.
