In astrology, your Sun sign dictates your zodiac personality (your basic ego), while your Moon sign represents your emotions, your inner mood (your inner self).

If you are a sensitive or emotional person, you may recognize your Moon sign qualities more readily than your Sun sign. These traits are “who you are inside” … an intimate side of your character only you and those close to you really know. In fact, your Moon sign may be very different from – or even in conflict with your Sun sign traits. (And there’s another reason why people are so complicated!)

Forecasts based on your Moon sign reveal what’s happening in your private life, your inner world, with your family situation and living conditions … and how life’s shifting tides could affect your security, foundations, and feelings. Because they target your experiences literally “where you live” you are apt to relate to readings that involve your Moon sign much more directly than those based on your Sun sign alone.

The Moon moves quickly around the zodiac, taking one month to visit all signs and stays in each sign an approximate two-day period, hence, if the Moon is about to ingress to the next sign on the day of your birth, you will need to know your time of birth for an accurate Moon sign placement.
