Your zodiac sign, or Sun sign, isn't the only astrological sign that can help us determine who we are and want we want in love and life.

Moon signs reach deeper than our zodiac signs. They go into our unconscious personalities — or, in other words, our emotional development.

While our zodiac signs help us establish our personality traits, a Moon sign actually explains what we do and why we do it. 

Since Moon signs give us more extensive information than zodiac signs do, they can actually be more accurate than zodiac signs.

Similar to our zodiac signs, our Moon signs aren't just good for finding out more about ourselves. They can also help us out in our love lives; specifically, what men want in a woman.

Since Moon signs dig further into who we are, they can be an even better gauge of our zodiac compatibility than sun signs. They can help us to understand what kind of people we're attracted to and what kind of person we usually fall head over heels for.
