Our Moon sign opens us up to a world that helps us to dig deep within and discover how we want to be loved and nurtured. The Moon is a powerful placement in our chart since it links us to our emotional intelligence and what we desire when we are connecting with others, building friendships, and entering romantic partnerships.

The degree of our Moon adds another layer to the complexity of this luminary. This means that although someone can be an Aries Moon, if they have the Moon at seven degrees (ruled by Libra), they may display traits similar to that Venusian sign.
