While your Sun is the part of you that everyone sees in the world – your personality, your Moon sign is more hidden as it rules your emotions and your subconscious. Your Moon sign shows your needs in relationships and how you will get along living with someone else. Going into a relationship, it’s even more important to know your partners Moon sign than Sun sign.
Here’s a guide to all the Moon signs, though first check out this Moon Sign calculator to find yours. You will need your exact time of birth to determine your Moon sign as the Moon changes sign every couple days.
You love the thrill of sudden love (or lust) and are not afraid to bear your heart on the first date. If things become too routine and predictable, you can often lose interest so it’s important to keep things fresh and exciting with your partner. You express yourself honestly, quickly and put your feelings all on the table. If others aren’t as quick to jump, it does not mean that don’t like you – others may need a slow simmer to feel more secure. Igniting the passions in those around you, make sure you are prepared to finish what you start.
