If you have a Sagittarius moon sign, your deepest emotions and desires take on the qualities of the Sagittarius zodiac sign: adventurous, worldly and philosophical.
Ah, la luna! Your astrology moon sign indicates the “inner you.” If you have a Sagittarius moon sign in your natal chart, it means that when you were born, the moon was traveling through the Sagittarius 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 Sagittarius moon
Tell them how you really feel. It’s not like you have much choice. If your moon is in Sagittarius or the 9th house, honesty is the only policy when it comes to your emotions. Before you’ve had a chance to self-edit, you’ve already blurted a borderline-TMI confession. But hey, someone had to break the ice! That’s a job you’ll happily take on, since you love nothing more than a rousing round of real talk.
You’re also a sucker for a deep, philosophical conversation. No topic is too broad or vast for you to explore, and you probably have strong opinions about a lot of them. Most people can’t match your range. But the ones who can will travel far with you—literally!
With the moon in this expansive placement, you live for the journey. Some of your closest bonds are formed while traveling. From festival buddies to the family who hosted you as an exchange student, you have people in every port. In friendship and love, you’re drawn to people from different cultural backgrounds, where a true avant-garde, “meeting of the minds” can occur. You might even possess a devout religious or spiritual sentiment that guides your choices.
Sagittarius moon signs have a sharp B.S. detector
With this truth-seeking moon, you intuitively sense when something feels right or wrong (at least by your ethical standards). Your temper can flare up quickly, especially if people are being provincial and narrow-minded. That’s one thing you have zero tolerance for! You have a sharp B.S. detector. For the most part, no one’s pulling the wool over your eyes. That said, you can be swayed by flattery, or take a few detours following a charismatic guru. These “slips” are only human, and with your eternally optimistic spirit, you’ll just turn them into lessons for personal growth—or fodder for your next stand-up routine.
Adventurous and expansive, you have a never-ending yearning freedom. Security comes from knowing you can move about at will, without having to answer to anyone else’s demands. Because of this, it can be tricky to pin you down into a commitment. A deep part of you is afraid of getting fenced in or feeling claustrophobic.
However, if you sense that a relationship—romantic or otherwise—can help you continue to grow in a positive way, you’re more likely to stick around for the long haul. No matter how brief or extended your connections last, this fiery moon sign makes you a passionate soul. No, your wild spirit will never be fully tamed. But you also bring a sense of hilarity and infinite possibility to the party, which is why people love having you around.
