I believe we make a slight error when we introduce ourselves as our Sun sign. Don’t get me wrong…our Sun sign is important, however, I believe we truly are more our Moon sign. Instead of introducing myself as a Cancer, I should say, “My moon is in Taurus, and by the way, my Sun is in Cancer.” Always start with the Moon sign, when doing any chart comparisons. It is far more of an indication of compatibility, than Sun signs. Whatever Zodiac sign our moon was in, when we were born, explains how we process our emotions. If your Moon is in a water sign, you are going to be far more emotional than if your Moon is in an air sign. I explain to my astrology students that your Moon sign explains how you will emotionally react in any emotionally charged or emergency situation. For example, if you see someone getting injured in a traffic accident, your Moon sign will explain how you will behave in that situation. The air signs will use their minds to figure out a way to help. They will use logic and intellect. They make excellent paramedics because their emotions do not take over! The water signs will start crying and they will want to show emotional support. They will want to comfort and console. The fire signs will take action, become the leader and direct people to do certain tasks. They will make sure something happens fast to help the victim. The earth signs will stop traffic, and deal with the situation in practical and direct ways. They will make phone calls and find a doctor to care for the injured. Everyone wants to help in their own way, and each has their own particular area of expertise. There is no right or wrong in the world of astrology. We are what we are. Looking at your Moon sign will explain a lot about why you get along with some people more than others. For example, if you are a child with a Moon in water, you might find it difficult having a mother with Moon in air. The child wants homemade cookies and snuggling at bed time. The air mother is fine with a quick kiss on the forehead and a nice bedtime story. People who share the exact same Moon sign will feel like they have a level of safety with each other. There is a sense that all is well. Have you ever met someone with your same Moon sign? Did it not feel pretty sweet?
