The Moon

The Earth & Moon have a special relationship both in the sky & in the metaphysical discipline of Astrology. To an Astrologer, the physics & the symbolism of it all is interesting. The Earth orbits the Sun; the Moon orbits the Earth -- & thus indirectly the Moon orbits the Sun. The Earth rotates (spins) on its axis. So does the Moon -- something we never observe from our vantage point on Earth. Why is this?

The Moon is in synchronous rotation with the Earth. In the words of astronomy, the Moon is tidally locked to the Earth. It rotates on its axis at the same rate that it revolves around the Earth. This is why the same side of the Moon always faces the Earth.

The Moon

The Sun and the Moon are known as The Luminaries -- the light-givers -- both in the sky and in your horoscope. They are certainly the most obvious elements in the sky -- and each rules over a prominent part of your character. Their territories don't overlap much with each other. In fact, in some ways they're "costars" of the horoscope. Together they reveal material that gives a fairly dimensional description of you.

The Moon is also the closest celestial citizen to the Earth. This gives it a special intimacy with the things in your character that are associated with Moon energy -- for these things are also "close to you" in a psychological sense. While the Sun describes your outward character & spiritual purpose, the Moon describes your emotional landscape ... your inner world which may be known only to you.

The Moon

The masculine planets in Astrology, The Sun, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn & Pluto all have a very public presence. It's easy to see them at work, to understand their interests, to appreciate their goals. There's something very direct & honest about them. The inner world of feelings, emotions, intuition, psychology, memories & instincts is a different matter though. This is where the feminine planets excel & preside.

Masculine planets can be complex & multi-dimensional in their different ways, but they pale in comparison to their feminine colleagues. (And just for the record, the terms masculine & feminine here refer more to the Oriental concept of yang & yin / active & responsive rather than the often politically charged notions of male and female -- & whether one is superior to the other.)

The Moon

Even when compared to the complicated Water Sign Suns like Scorpio & Pisces, the Moon rules a tremendously complex set of qualities in your character, the vast, multi-layered intricate world of feelings & emotions. Thus your Moon energy deals with things like intuition, instincts, habits & moods. It reveals on how you express yourself when your passions are triggered ... or when your feelings are hurt.

The Moon in your horoscope is a major piece of information on how you experience & deal with your inner world ... a place we all have & know intimately, but how you share these parts of you ... or whether you choose to share them at all, is a very private decision.

The Moon

The Moon in Astrology rules Cancer, the Zodiac sign that arrives with the Summer Solstice. Both the Moon and Cancer are associated with feelings and emotions, intuition, elements of home and family life, and the roots of your history and heritage. The Moon is concerned with security and protection. It gives information about your deep personal needs, automatic reactions and essential habits.

It's fair to say the Moon is connected to what most people would call "instincts." Through its emotional and intuitive channels it is connected to the unconscious. Sun energy acts directly, outwardly ... often in consultation with Mercury when making decisions. Moon energy, however, reacts spontaneously, reflexively, without stopping to think things through.

The Moon in Astrology

The Moon in your horoscope is considered the second-most important element in your Natal Chart ... & therefore in your character. But there are plenty of reasons (& arguments) to take exception to this except as a general statement of its status in the astrological array.

The Moon symbolizes your Inner Self, your Emotional Self ... the part of you that feels & responds to things that ignite an emotional reaction. You are very aware of its presence, & information related to it may be more revealing -- more pertinent to you personally -- than the huge repertoire of data your Sun energy contains.

* The Sun and Moon in Your Natal Chart -- Two powerful descriptions of you ---> Your two most important Inner Selves ---> Even in the more subtle, introverted signs, like Scorpio, Virgo and Pisces, The Sun's energy in your horoscope is considered powerful, masculine and demonstrative. Its expression can be overwhelmed and disguised by other factors or afflictions in the horoscope, but not easily.

The Moon

The Moon is the fastest-moving celestial body in the traditional horoscope. (For convenience, Astrologers refer to it as "a planet," but it's really not. The Moon is a satellite of Earth. The only natural one.) The Moon travels through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every month ... which means it changes signs about every 2 1/2 days.

The Sun takes a month to transit a sign. Mercury takes anywhere from 2+ weeks to more than a month ... depending on what it's up to and what's happening with its retrograde cycle, etc. So when it comes to quick changes, the Moon has them both beat by a country mile. This is especially relevant because the Moon rules, among other things, emotions and feeling ... and moods.
