If you have a Libra moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Libra zodiac sign: aesthetic, fair and balanced.
Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have a Libra moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Libra zodiac sign. Your moon sign and your Sun sign combined make up a more in-depth portrait of your personality.
What is the difference between a moon sign and zodiac sign in astrology?
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.
Your Sun sign is considered your “main sign” and it’s the forecast you read on websites and in newspapers. The Sun changes zodiac signs approximately every thirty days, so people born in these clusters will share a Sun sign and many basic personality traits.
Your moon sign is your emotional personality
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.
What it means if you have a Libra moon
Peace, love and harmony! Emotional equilibrium is the ultimate goal for those born with the moon in Libra or the 7th house. On your best days, you are calm and centered, so much so that people might mistake your serenity for indifference. Wrong! With the sign of the scales directing your feelings, you simply like to take your time. Every option must be carefully weighed and deliberated. Rushing into decisions gives you major anxiety! Before you can move ahead, you want to check out a situation from every possible angle.
Libra moon is a die-hard romantic
Love is all you need—or close to it! This collaborative moon sign helps you thrive in partnerships, especially when you’ve found a complementary force who can pick up where you leave off. Romance is your “drug” of choice and you love being swept away. When you think you’ve found The One, it can be a struggle to maintain your pre-existing commitments. Friends may have to pull you back to shore or provide a reality anchor when you’re in the throes of “new relationship energy.”
Compromise is usually the goal for this moon sign, and you have a knack for finding win-wins. While interpersonal harmony is your preference, there are a few things that tip your scales off balance. Social injustices will always fire you up. You hate to see people treated unfairly and instinctively stick up for people who aren’t able to defend themselves. Animal rights are also a huge conviction. Many Libra moons may go vegan at a young age, both on principle and because, admittedly, this beauty-loving moon sign likes to emanate a radiant, healthy glow.
Libra moon is a natural peacekeeper
You have a talent for calming “difficult” people. Watch out though! This gift can be a double-edged sword, leading you down the slippery slope to enabling or codependence—especially if you had a turbulent childhood. Some relationships aren’t meant to be mended, at least not by you alone. It’s difficult for this moon sign to let go and watch people struggle. Interfering can leave you shouldering a heavy burden and might even stall people’s emotional growth and maturity.
Bring on the beauty boosters! Aesthetics have a strong impact on your mood, so keep inspiring visuals in your sight line whenever possible. Walking through gorgeous scenery or a colorful outdoor market can immediately pull you out of a funk. And yes, you may have expensive tastes. This lavish moon sign can be excessive. Watch those retail therapy urges, but make a budget for some indulgences. A Libra (or 7th house) moon cannot survive on packaged ramen alone! Artisanal spicy tonkatsu ramen, on the other hand…
