Knowing the astrological placing of the moon in a natal chart is the key to understanding yourself, as well as other people. The moon rules our emotions, our mother and our subconscious. It's our natural way of being...how we express our emotions... It's something that we don't consciously express or think about, it just flows through us on a subconscious level. If a person has their moon in a fire sign, their emotional nature is going to be more spontaneous, sporadic and high strung...emotions tend to fluctuate from one extreme to the other. .Fire sign moons have a more difficult time controlling their reactions to emotional triggers yet very exciting as well. If the moon is in an earth sign it gives the person a very dependable emotional nature that is somewhat less expressive but more steadfast, with a tendency to be somewhat detached...dramatic displays of emotion can make earth-moon people feel awkward and uncomfortable. The moon in an air sign is a peculiar and paradoxical placing because air represents thinking, which is the opposite of feeling, so emotions are harder to understand and they don't emotionally attach to others as easily either. Air sign moons are very logical and can appear to be cold towards loved ones during an emotional crisis type of situation...Air sign moons are good people to turn to for advice when emotions are clouding your own judgment. The moon in a water sign is at it's strongest and these natives feel and connect with others in a very deep way...which can be somewhat of a burden to water sign moon natives, as it can give them a tendency towards escapism and can you blame them...imagine constantly feeling everyone's emotions...not just the good emotions but the dark painful emotions as well. It wears them out. Understanding your moon placing is essential to gaining control over your own emotional reactions to life and deepens your connection with your loved ones, thus the importance of having compatible moons because as you can see, when you have two different expressions of emotional energy, there can be a lot of misunderstandings and hurt feelings.
Knowledge is power.
