While your zodiac sign, or Sun sign, represents the lessons you're here to learn in life, your Moon sign is the one that truly represents your soul and who you are on the inside.

That’s why most of us may not always exhibit the characteristics of our Sun sign but always show the nature of our Moon sign.

And because this astrological point is so closely associated with who you are, what brings you comfort, and what's intrinsically familiar to you, it's no coincidence that your Moon sign is the true indicator of the kind of people you're attracted to in romantic relationships.


After all, we're drawn to people who share the same dreams as us, react the same way to life, and in whose presence we feel like we're home.

To find your Moon sign, just enter your birth date, time, and the location where you were born in a Moon sign calculator so you can you get an even deeper look into your personality.


Then let’s dive in and see how your Moon sign compatibility affects your romantic relationships and what you look for in a partner.

Moon sign compatibility

Aries Moon compatibility

Aries is the sign of the warrior. The hot-blooded, Martian conqueror. The passionate leader who rams past every obstacle in their way.

When your Moon is in Aries, you're exactly like that on the inside, even if your Sun sign is a more mild-mannered sign, like Pisces or Virgo.

And because you're so passionate, active, and animated, you're attracted to people of the same kind, like Leo Moons and Sagittarius Moons. These Moon signs also exude confidence and masculinity, and are independent doers through and through.


In fact, out of all the Moon signs, you're the one most likely to choose a uniformed life partner, like someone in the military or police service.

That said, you're least compatible with those Moon signs that tend to be on the more complacent and moody side, such as Cancer and Pisces Moons.

Taurus Moon compatibility

Taurus is the sign of the stubborn Bull. The indulgent, luxury-loving, traditional homebody who loves peaceful environments close to nature.

And when your Moon is in Taurus, you're exactly like that on the inside.

You're a sensual and romantic person who loves expressing affection through touch and material pleasures. And you like people who embody those traits because in their presence you feel at home and at peace.


In fact, you hate conflict so much that people who live for drama instantly repel you, which is why Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini Moons aren't compatible with you. 

Instead, are strongly attracted to peaceful individuals who like the ease of routines even if they are a tad boring, such as Virgo Moons and Capricorn Moons.

Gemini Moon compatibility

Gemini is the sign of the flighty Twins. The mischievous troublemaker who loves engaging with people, talking about ideas, and stirring up a riot.

And when your Moon is in Gemini, that’s exactly who you're on the inside, even if you have a more down-to-earth Sun sign like Taurus or Cancer.


You love experiencing new things, cultures, food, and people, and are strongly attracted to people with whom you can talk for fourteen hours straight, like Libra and Aquarius Moons.

But because you have an airy Moon, you're less likely to be emotional and don't like heavy displays of affection, so you're less compatible with Virgo, Taurus, and Capricorn Moons.

Cancer Moon compatibility

Cancer is the sign of the soft-bellied Crab with a hard exterior. The acutely emotional family woman with the ability to nurture everyone like a mother.

And when your Moon is in Cancer, that’s exactly how you're on the inside, even if it's only apparent to the ones closest to you.


But since you're intrinsically quite vulnerable, you're strongly attracted to people who can protect you and who would never betray your trust, which you'll find in Scorpio and Pisces Moons.

On the other hand, you're less compatible with Moon signs such as Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo, whose overt passion can sometimes become overwhelming.

Leo Moon compatibility

Whether you have a conservation Sun sign in Capricorn or an ultra-sensitive one in Pisces, if your Moon is in Leo, your soul is that of a diva. And this nature is acutely apparent to all who are close to you.

You're generous, warm-hearted, romantic, and creative. And you absolutely love the limelight.


That’s why you're magnetically attracted to people with the same qualities, like those found in Sagittarius and Aries Moons, especially if they exude charisma and can hold large audiences in complete rapture with their personalities.

But because you're the Queen on the inside, you're instantly repelled by people who disrespect you or dishonor you in any way, such as Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer Moons.

Virgo Moon compatibility

Virgo lives to be of service to others, to help people improve their life and health.

And if your Moon is in Virgo, you will exhibit these traits in your close relationships, even if you have a royal Sun sign like Leo or an aloof Sun sign like Aquarius.


And since your Moon sign represents everything that brings you comfort, you're strongly attracted to people who are just as calm, rational, and well-organized as you — such as Capricorn and Taurus Moons — the people who are great at taking care of you when you're sick.

You're not compatible with Moon signs that have a harder time keeping their emotions in check or being consistent, such as Gemini, Aquarius, and Libra.

Libra Moon compatibility

Whether your Sun sign is in the aggressive sign of Aries or the flighty sign of Gemini, if your Moon is in the super-diplomatic sign of Libra, that’s exactly how you will appear to the people closest to you.

And since Libra rules relationships, you don't feel complete without a partner by your side.

But they have to be of a certain kind for you to be comfortable around them. The kind just as peaceful, calm, loving, and rational as you, which you'll find in Aquarius and Gemini Moons. Someone who gets along with practically everyone.

You're not compatible with the more emotionally repressed Moon signs such as Capricorn, Virgo, and Taurus, who won't always be able to provide you with the comfort you crave.

Scorpio Moon compatibility

Scorpio is the most powerful sign of the zodiac. The most intense, seductive, and transformative.

And when your Moon sign is in Scorpio, that’s exactly how you are on the inside: powerful, magnetic, intense, and secretive.

And you look for the same in a romantic partner — intense passion, alluring mysteriousness, and ability to bond completely in romance. A true soulmate, who you'll find in Pisces and Cancer Moons.

And just because your nature is so intense and emotional, you absolutely despise people who are airy, superficial, and untrustworthy, such as Sagittarius, Aries, and Leo Moons.

Sagittarius Moon compatibility

Sagittarius is the sign of the philosopher. The perpetual learner, the teacher, and the world traveler.

And when your Moon is in Sagittarius, that's exactly who you are on the inside.

You're fun-loving, non-judgmental, and love to live and let live. You're an independent soul who thrives on personal freedom, spontaneity, and long, philosophical discussions about the world, the Universe, and other abstractions.

And since our Moon sign represents what we consider home, you're strongly attracted to non-clingy people who exhibit these same characteristics like Aries and and Leo Moons.


On the other hand, you're less compatible with Moon signs that tend to display more codependency, such as Cancer, Pisces, and Scorpio.

Capricorn Moon compatibility

Capricorn is the worst sign for the luminous Moon to be in astrology, after Scorpio, because the nature of Capricorn is opposite of everything the Moon stands for.


That’s why if your Moon sign is in Capricorn, you most likely are emotionally repressed and inexpressive in romantic relationships, which can make you feel cold, aloof, and boring to most people.

But that doesn't mean you don't have some unique strengths. You're incredibly determined, disciplined, and hard-working. And you're very respectable and classy.

Since we're attracted to people who resemble our Moons, you will be strongly attracted to someone who has these very characteristics, like a Taurus or Virgo Moon. Someone with whom you would be proud to be seen in public because of the “power couple” aura you have around you of reserved efficiency, and who will be a great, stable partner to share a respectable life with.

You're not compatible with Moon signs that require a certain level of affection and openness, such as Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius.

Aquarius Moon compatibility

Aquarius is the sign of the rebel. The black sheep of society who ultimately pushes the entire generation forward through their remarkable ability to revolutionize the world, and, thus, change the fabric of the entire world.

And when your Moon is in Aquarius, this eccentric genius-like trait of yours is very apparent to people close to you.

You're an unconventional person and you look for the same in a partner. Someone who stands out from the crowd because they are unique and different. Someone whose mental frequency is matched with yours. and with whom you can discuss revolutionary ideas day in and day out. 


The perfect romantic partner for you is someone who is less of a partner and more like a best friend, which is most likely to be found in Gemini and Aries Moons.

The more down-to-earth Moon signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn might make a relationship feel more restrictive to you.

Pisces Moon compatibility

Pisces is the sign of the dreamy fish. The soft, imaginative, creative soul who lives for dreamy romance and escape into fantasy worlds.

And when your Moon sign is in Pisces, that’s exactly what you are on the inside, even if your Sun sign is more realistic like Capricorn or Virgo (which in turn makes those Moon signs the least compatible with you).


Our Moon sign represents home and comfort, so you're very strongly attracted to people who embody the same characteristics outwardly. Someone who is kind, emotional, and peace-loving. The one who abhors conflict as much as you, which makes you most compatible with Cancer and Scorpio Moons.
