If you have an Aries moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Aries zodiac sign: fiery, passionate and action-oriented.
Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have an Aries moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Aries 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 Aries moon sign:
Look out, world! People born with an Aries moon sign in their natal chart tend to be easily excited and energetic. They’re up for anything and will eagerly dive headfirst into new adventures. Aries moon sign individuals possess innate passion and zest for life, much like those born with their Sun in Aries.
If your moon is in Aries, chances are you have an inherent need to blaze your own trail. Although the Aries moon sign exudes fervency and pioneering spirits, they can also act impulsively without thinking through the consequences. (Think: boldly unleashing those “uncensored” thoughts at a company meeting or maxing out the credit card for a weekend-long getaway to Cancun.)
Those born with an Aries moon sign tend to get easily frustrated and even angry. Although their bratty temper tantrums often pass quickly, damage can be done—much like a swiftly moving tornado. Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet of aggression and war, after all. Passionate, argumentative and competitive, an Aries moon in your chart makes you an initiator who likes to be first. The Aries moon sign wants their star qualities to be admired. Aries moon signs will also courageously champion a cause, project or person they believe in.
It’s important for Aries moon signs to have a physical and/or creative outlet for their passion: sports, regular sex and hobbies, or projects that challenge them. The Aries moon sign needs plenty of independence and freedom in their relationships—whether romantic, platonic or familial. Aries moon signs are terrified of being trapped or chained down, which can manifest through intense arguments, knee-jerk reactions, and even running away from people or situations when the going gets too tough.
