Pisces Moon Sign Astrology: Fascinating Facts about Your Emotional Personality

If you have a Pisces moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Pisces zodiac sign: dreamy, imaginative and ethereal.

Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have a Pisces moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Pisces 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 Pisces moon

Dive into the depths! If your moon is in Pisces or the 12th house, you are sensitive and empathetic. This dreamy lunar placement makes you quite magnetic. People are drawn to your soothing vibe and compassionate nature. A natural healer and confidant, you can be trusted to keep the darkest of secrets. One of your greatest gifts is your ability to be unconditionally accepting. Like a wise old soul, you understand that “people are people.” Rarely will you judge—although you will advise, if your intuition calls for it.   

With your unmatched compassion, you are forever tuning in to other people’s needs. Protecting the underdog is the one thing that will charge up your fighting spirit! You cannot stand to see a disenfranchised person being taken advantage of. Paradoxically, your own feelings can be as enigmatic ever-changing as the ocean itself. Your emotions may ebb and flow by the minute, making it hard to put them into words. Sometimes, they aren’t even your feelings. You can be a psychic sponge, picking up the energy of everyone in the room. This near-psychic (or full-on psychic!) trait is a lot to deal with in this lifetime.  

Pisces moon signs may need to “swim away”

People born with this lunar placement must also be mindful of what you’re taking in, like other people’s stormy moods, negative vibes or unspoken judgments. You may need to “swim away” regularly when your circuits get overloaded. A serene hideaway is a must for this moon sign. There may be certain people who you simply cannot allow in your life, especially if they pull you into a codependent vortex with their self-destructive addictions.

More than most, you need to “shield your field.” Setting healthy boundaries is essential to your sanity—and yes, wearing certain crystals or a protective talisman can help. Clearing rituals, like burning sage, meditating and taking salt baths will keep you in emotional balance. Make it your mission to find a home with a dreamy tub!  

With your rich fantasy life, having a creative outlet is a must. You may channel intuitive feelings and dreams into mediums like art, music or dance. What you dream up can be pure genius—and like a tsunami, you might rise up from “nowhere” and start a cultural wave that takes the world by storm.  

To feel truly secure, surround yourself with people who are unconditionally loving and practical. Anyone who judges you or tries to force you to live on a tight schedule will stir up your anxiety. But serene types who can help you create (and stick to!) healthy structures will be your “chosen family.” (Bring on the momagers!)

Friends and lovers should remind you to sleep and eat—and better yet, do the cooking and grocery shopping on more than a rare occasion. With the emotional burden you carry for the world, your own dam will break periodically. Comforting types who can offer a sturdy shoulder are a must! And if they can offer truly helpful advice, these priceless gems will swim in your soulful sea forever.
