The fastest traveler in the chart
The Moon changes signs about every 2 1/2 days ... so it's impossible in many cases to know your Moon sign without a correct birth time ... and access to some of the materials you need to cast your Natal Chart. A good astrologer, of course, or a decent computer program can do that for you if you can provide the right information.
Because the Moon circles through all twelve signs in a little under a month, every year during the its travels through each sign, the Sun will be paired with all twelve Moon signs ... which is one very basic explanation why there are often noticeable differences between members of the same Sun Sign.
