What Is My Moon Sign and What Does It Mean?

I talk a lot about working with the cycles of the moon and the astrology of the moon, but up to now I haven’t taken the time to spell out what moon signs really are and why they are important! Today we are going to explore how the moon may appear in your life and why it’s helpful to understand your relationship with her.

Importance of Time of Birth for Determining Moon Signs

Your moon sign is the astrological sign that the moon was passing through at the moment of your birth. The moon changes signs approximately every two and a half days so if the moon changed signs on the day you were born, it will be important to know about what time you were born so that you can accurately determine your moon sign. For example, if the moon changed from Aries to Taurus at 10:00 am on the day you were born, 

you will need to know if you were born before or after that time. Otherwise, any information you try to find about your moon sign will have only a 50% chance of being accurate.

If you don’t know what time you were born but the moon did not change signs on your birthday, then you are in luck, as the moon was in the same sign the entire day.

How Do I Find Out What My Moon Sign Is?

I recommend using www.astro-charts.com for calculating your natal chart. Simply click on Create A Birth Chart from the menu and input your information.

This is where you will need to know what time you were born; if you do not know, simply input 12:00 pm. However, if that is the case, I recommend you also go to www.lunarium.co.uk, click on Calendars at the top of the page, and change the calendar displayed to the month, year and location of your birth. From there you can determine whether or not the moon changed signs on the day you were born.

What Does My Moon Sign Affect?

Each sign in your natal chart affects a different area of your life. The sun affects your ego and personality, Mercury affects your communication style, Venus affects your love life and sense of aesthetics, etc. 

The moon is all about your emotions and intuition. Your moon sign affects how you display emotions, what types of things you may be emotional about and in what ways you may display psychic abilities.
