Moon in the Zodiac Signs
The Range and Focus of your Emotions. Sensitivities, Awareness, Understanding.
The Moon in your horoscope shows the range and focus of your emotions. There are a great many specific statements that can be made about this rich and varied planet, and the following sample interpretations provide a basic summary. Generally the sign containing the Moon provides clues for the astrologer concerning the person's general emotional state, the female half of the psyche, the mother, attitudes to the mother, maternal instincts, the home and family background and the general public face. Ideally the Moon, which symbolizes feelings, sensitivities, awareness and understanding, should be the magnetic balance of the Sun, which symbolizes the willpower and ego-force. Polarity between these two primary forces of life ensures balance and perspective. There is some polarity if the Sun and Moon are 45° or more apart. There is little or no polarity when the Sun and Moon are less than 45° apart, down to the exact conjunction of being together (which is generally unfortunate). If the Sun and Moon are less than 45° apart, it is better if they are at least in different signs, as this alone gives some distinguishing characteristics.
