What Does Your Moon Say About You?
Most of us are familiar with our zodiac or astrological sign, but did you know that when you say, “I’m an Aquarius,” all you are stating is the location of the Sun when you were born? Don’t get me wrong, the Sun has a major impact, but there are so many other planets and placements to consider. Your natal chart is the layout of planets and their placements based on the date, year, time, and location of your birth. These placements allow astrologers to give insight into a person’s lifelong themes and personality traits.
In addition to understanding your Sun sign, your Moon placement plays the second biggest part in your chart! While the Sun represents our personalities and how we shine, the Moon rules our emotions, the environments we thrive in, and the way the public views us. Because the Moon travels much faster than the Sun, it’s best to have your birth time available when figuring out your Moon sign.
