The first time I read my sun sign I was at the grocery store check-out line and picked up one of those tiny horoscope books. I’m an Aries. Independent, impulsive, impatient. My Mom is a Virgo. Practical, detailed, organized. Sounds about right.
Most people know their sun sign and what that means about their personality. But do you know your moon sign? And what that tells about your emotional well-being and how to nurture yourself?
In astrology, the sun represents your basic nature and the moon indicates your inner self. The moon tells you what you need to feel safe, secure and happy.
If you’re feeling drained, your moon sign offers cues on how to get back on track.
Without recharging your moon-battery, it’s difficult to shine your light in the world via your sun sign.
Here’s a helpful guide with tips on how each one can recharge. If you don’t know your moon sign you can look it up here. You will need your date of birth and time as the moon changes signs every couple
Happy Moon Guide
Moon in Aries
No lounging around eating bonbons. Get moving. Aries Moon needs physical activity to recharge. Whether it’s a brisk walk, bike ride or yoga class, you need to get up and out. Aries rules the physical appearance. Anything you can do to boost your self-image will greatly enhance your mood. A shopping excursion can go a long way as well as a trip to the hairstylist (Aries governs the head).
