What’s Your Sign?
What’s your sign? I remember the days of polyester clad men with bad mustaches and puka shell necklaces asking me that question. My response was always rolling my eyes and walking away. I was there to dance, nothing more. And, seriously, did they have any luck with a pickup line like that?!
Now that I am done dating myself. 😮 Help yourself to a cup of coffee and relax, we are discussing Moon Signs today. Life is a series of dualities. We have good and bad, left and right, and of course we have the sun and moon. Everyone knows what the 12 signs of the zodiac are and what their sign is, but not everyone is aware that each of us also has a Moon Sign.
Our Sun sign is our outer self, it reveals the personality that we radiate to the world. Like the sun, the energy is active, outgoing, strong and dominant. The Sun Sign is the male aspect of who we are, but that is only half of what makes us complete.
Our Moon Sign is the other half. The moon is subtle, intuitive and holds our emotions. The moon doesn’t shine boldly like the sun. It reflects gently the parts of ourselves that we may not always show the world. The moon is our feminine aspect.
It is not uncommon for people to have different sun and moon signs. Which explains why some people read their horoscope in the newspaper or a magazine and think, that isn’t me at all! It is you, but only half of you.
If you are interested in finding out what your moon sign is you have two options. You can have an astrological chart done, or go to the web and find a site that does the math for you. I found such a site (here) and it seems to be pretty legit. I didn’t have any trouble with it.
I made this chart to show some of the similarities and differences of our outer and inner characteristics. The characteristics listed are by no means everything there is about each sign. I just wanted to put something side by side for you to see. Remember that in most cases our sun and moon signs can be different. For instance someone has an Aries sun but a Pisces moon. That person is going to be a big gruff ol teddy bear. But a person that is a double Aries may be an aggressive very emotionally demanding person.
