Welcome to your inner world
In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.) The Inner Self fueled by your Moon energy wants you to feel safe, protected, emotionally supported and "at home."
It is associated with female energy in general ... and how we express the feminine side of our nature. (The Moon is very influential in this, but Venus has a hand in it, too.) Positively, our Moon energy is responsive and reflective, tender and protective. Negatively, it is complaining, self-pitying, fretful and moody. All these are virtues and character problems conventionally associated with women.

Quick Notes on the Moon ---> The Moon is second fiddle? Maybe. Maybe not. ---> * The Moon in your Natal Chart is considered the second-most important element in your horoscope ... & therefore in your character. But there are plenty of reasons (& arguments) to take exception to this except as a general statement of status in the astrological array. * The Moon symbolizes your Inner Self, your Emotional Self ... the part of your character that feels & responds to things
The Moon -- Physics, Metaphysics and Myth -- Part 1 ---> Physics ---> Luna, the Earth's Moon, is also the Earth's only natural satellite. Neither Mercury nor Venus have any moons at all. The rest of the planets in our Solar System have anywhere from 2 moons (Mars) to dozens of moons. Jupiter has 67. Even Pluto has five. Still that makes Earth and its Moon -- and their peculiar relationship to one another -- fairly unique.
More about the Moon
Moon Lore ---> Once upon a time ... ---> In ancient times, Moon phases, Moon cycles, were the readily visible, incontrovertible calendar people depended on to mark the passage of time. The appearance of the Full or New Moon in the company of certain well-known and predictable constellations signaled the arrival of specific important moments in the year. The interval between one New Moon and the next marked one length of time ... roughly equivalent to our modern idea of "a month."
* Moon Magic ---> Secrets and mysteries ---> The Moon has a mystique all its own. It is often associated with secrecy and mystery ... and is associated with strange, uncanny powers.
