We probably nearly all know our star sign (otherwise known as sun sign), but what about our moon sign? Here’s everything you need to know.
Your star (or sun) sign represents which sign the sun was in when you were born. The earth takes 30-31 days to change signs as it orbits around the sun, so you share your sun sign with everyone born in that month-long time span. Your sun sign dictates the brush strokes of your personality, your ‘outer self.’ However, it’s your moon sign which reveals the REAL you, the private person inside that you know yourself to be.
The moon only stays in each sign for around two days, so it’s a much more variable aspect of your birth chart. It largely explains why you are SO different to the other people you know who share your sun sign (does anyone else ever feel a bit ashamed when they discover a disliked celeb shares their sun sign?)
Your moon sign reflects the cauldron of emotions, fears, longings and obsessions bubbling below the surface of your sun sign-driven persona. It’s about the private self and its motivations and anxieties. It impacts heavily upon your relationships and bonds with others, and how you FEEL about stuff. It’s deep.
How to find out your moon sign
You’ll need your date, time and place of birth. Use Cafe Astrology’s tool to work out your moon sign, and then read on to discover what it means for you and your life…
Emotionally, you’re courageous and competitive and your feelings are most stirred by a challenge or obstacle to bash down! You often feel impatient with other people, with life in general, and require a lot of stimulus and, frankly, ACTION to keep you out of trouble.
Moon sign: How do you find yours and what does it mean?
What secret about you would people be surprised to learn? Just how fierce you can be when someone you love is hurt or attacked. You’re a total warrior and nothing will stop you from shielding those you love. You’re moved more by protecting others than yourself.
In relationships, you feel the urge to take the lead, to be in control, to dominate your partner… but then you get bored of that and want someone to take you on! Life is never dull, that’s for sure.

Deep down, you feel the need to nest, both in the sense of creating a secure, safe and stable HQ, as well as a giant den-like larder to indulge your material, physical desires (like food). Your home world is your life, and you’re protective (ahem, obsessive?) over money, your stuff (DON’T TOUCH IT) and your space ( F*** OFF AND LEAVE ME ALONE).
What secret about you would people be surprised to learn? Control is a major theme in your life. You can come off as laidback and loving, but actually, you can’t help but worry and wonder about E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G your close people are doing and saying. You like to wield influence; you like to have a say.
In relationships, you need a powerful physical connection (ahem, great sex) and like to create a private kingdom for you and your partner. You can be a little bit jealous and dogmatic, but it takes a lot to get you to really lose your rag (on those rare occasions… they’d better run).
Youthful, flighty, crafty and flirty… Geminis like to have fun a heck of a lot more than they like feeling things. Always on the look out to distract yourself from everyday, humdrum life, you’re a thrill seeker and an explorer. Although you are kind and generous (to those you like… anyone else belongs in the “dead zone”), some people might think you can be a cold fish, because you just don’t go deep that often. Feelings… ugh, no thanks.
