What are moon signs in astrology and why are they important?

What are moon signs in astrology and why are they important?

-The Moon is said to rule your personality, while the Sun rules your individuality.

-moon signs show your emotions, and how you feel on the inside...

-represent your emotional reactions and also your “habits”, behaviors you fall back on and what makes you feel secure.

-the moon can also represent your mom in a horoscope, or the relationship...

-The moon sign represents your emotional make up, how you react and feel about things and how you percieve things. In a man’s horoscope it is also the type of woman he will be attracted to. So for my own moon in Aquarius, it makes me rather logical and not so emotional, I tend to think and rationalize about things. If a person has a moon in cancer or pisces they will be much more emotional and tend to “feel” things, get gut instincts about people and situations etc. The moon sign may enhance or offset certain traits of the sun sign, so a sun Sagittarius with a Scorpio moon is very different from a Sag with a Leo moon or a Sag with a virgo moon.

Moon Signs
Aries: - People with this moon sign, are impulsive, passionate and goal-oriented. They are quick thinkers and quick decision makers. They prefer not getting into minor details.
