What is my Moon Sign?











The Daily Moon Signs

The moon is probably the most misunderstood "non-planet" in astrology. For example, while the Sun may take a whole month to transit (navigate) through a zodiac sign, the moon can (and will) do it in less than three days. More people know their sun sign than know their moon sign. Like the phrase sun sign, the phrase moon sign is a shortened term that is intended to describe the sign of the zodiac that the moon was transiting through at any given time on any given day. Lunar Astrology/Moon Astrology It is much easier to say 'moon sign' than to say the "sign of the zodiac that the moon is (or was) transiting through."

The moon rules over our emotional state of being throughout the day (and night). While there are multiple factors to how we will react while the moon transits through a sign; there are some basic energies that can be associated with each sign that the moon passes (transits) through. This article attempts to briefly highlight some of the possibilities of the moon sign energies. Scroll down through the page to get a better sense of each moon sign's influence as well as the moon phases at the bottom of the page.

The Meanings in the Moon Phases

New Moon

The new moon initiates the first quarter moon phase. During the new moon, we are ripe for new opportunities and new beginnings. Each new moon and its moon sign is discussed in Lunar Living's articles section. Recent New Moon articles
top

First Quarter

The first quarter phase of the moon is a period of creation. There's a natural sense of budding new ideas, cultivating activities and sprouting new energies.
top

Second Quarter

The second quarter phase of the moon is a period of accepting responsibility for the concepts we initiated. Now we begin to plan, strategize and mold the concepts for a gainful result.
top

Full Moon

The full moon is a period of mastery and completion of the new moon's concepts. The full moon begins the third quarter phase. We can now step back and assess what was completed between the initiation of the new moon and the finalization of the full moon. Each full moon and its moon sign is discussed in Lunar Living's articles section. Recent Full Moon articles
top

Third Quarter

The third quarter phase of the moon is a period of acknowledging the results that culminated with the full moon. Now we can look at how we could have done it differently or assess what needs to be changed, tweaked or thrown out.
top

Fourth Quarter

The fourth quarter phase of the moon is a period of adjustment. As we head back into the darkness of the new moon, we can look inward to release the aspects of our creation that are no longer needed or were not productive to the original idea. It is a time of reflection and restructuring.
