If you have an Aquarius moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Aquarius zodiac sign: collaborative, lighthearted and future-forward thinking.
Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have an Aquarius moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Aquarius zodiac sign. Your moon sign and your Sun sign combined make up a more in-depth portrait of your personality.
So, what does the moon sign even mean?
The moon sign in astrology governs our “inner selves”—those feelings, deep desires and soul urges that not everyone sees. Much like the moon waxes and wanes, reveals and hides itself, the lunar cycles can also affect how much we share or show. Your moon sign can reveal how (and who) you love, or what you need to feel emotionally secure. It also plays a major role in romantic compatibility, revealing how harmonious your dynamic will be.
In the astrological birth chart, the moon sign is your “emotional personality,” a crucial part of understanding what makes you or someone else tick. Since the moon is the celestial body that’s closest to the Earth, our moods and feelings are governed by its movements. In a person’s natal (or birth) chart, the moon sign indicates what will provide us with a sense of home and security—what we need as individuals to feel safe, secure and comfortable. The moon also drives some of our “gut reactions”—how we respond on a primal, instinctive level.
Because the moon comes out at night, the moon sign can also influence our internal “shadow sides”—the parts of ourselves that only become visible when we self-reflect or get vulnerable with people. Often the moon sign doesn’t present externally or immediately like the robust Sun sign or masquerading rising sign, but becomes much more visible as you get to know a person and see how they respond to different life situations.
About the Aquarius moon sign:
The future is now! People born with an Aquarius moon sign in their natal chart are known for their futuristic outlook and innovative ideas, possessing an almost otherworldly personality. An Aquarius moon sign is a peculiar individual, because they can tend to resist actually feeling their feelings. Much like those born with their Sun in Aquarius, the Aquarius moon sign might try to rationalize their emotions by saying how they think, instead of how they feel. However, this doesn’t mean that they don’t have a few soft spots!
If your moon is in Aquarius, you’re experimental and avant-garde by nature, and seek out edgy, daring new experiences—even making yourself a bit uncomfortable in the process! But sometimes, an Aquarius can push boundaries a little too far and offend others in the process. (Hey, maybe the world isn’t quite ready for your radical, future-forward ideas?)
Ruled by spontaneous Uranus and symbolized by the Water Bearer, the Aquarius moon sign is quite the sexual libertine. This “free love” experimentation can foster plenty of friends-with-benefits and no-strings-attached relationships, sometimes resulting in multiple romantic partners! This could be exactly what the Aquarius moon sign needs to satiate their desire for both intimate and platonic connection. If they do choose to have just one S.O., it’s best for them to remember to establish an emotional hierarchy and place their loved one at—or at least near—the top. The pitfall for an Aquarius moon sign is that they can forget to make their partners feel special, because of a tendency toward emotional detachment.
In any given relationship, an Aquarius moon sign is looking for people who can be their BFF and click with their other close friends, too. This craving for connectedness doesn’t just stop IRL, either: online communities like Facebook and Instagram were made for these technology-driven lovers!
As a head-in-the-clouds air sign, an Aquarius moon sign can also come across as a bit quirky or even downright strange at times. But when it comes to these cosmic pioneers, they show us how to really let our freak flags fly—and that’s a good thing!
