What Your Moon Sign's Zodiac Element Means For You
Your moon sign determines how you handle your emotions, romantic capabilities, instincts, passions, and even temperament. Astrologer Aliza Kelly says, “Your moon sign provides dynamic insight into your psyche, so it's important to build a relationship with this placement and learn how the different planetary energies in your birth chart blend.”
Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are fire moons, so they’re bold, direct, and honest when it comes to their emotions. A moon in Aries means you’re emotionally strong but have an impulsive side, a moon in Leo means you love spoiling others and want to feel admired, and a moon in Sagittarius means you want someone to show you life as you’ve never seen it before.
Earth moons include Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn, and they’re all very down-to-earth and grounded. A moon in Taurus means you struggle with being too guarded but are very mellow, a moon in Virgo means you feel most secure when you’re needed by loved ones, and a moon in Capricorn means you prioritize security above all else in a relationship.
Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are air moon signs, so this means they love to intellectualize their emotions. A moon in Gemini means you’re charming but tend to explain away feelings, a moon in Libra means you can see a situation from another person’s point of view, and a moon in Aquarius means you have a clear understanding of what you value in a partner.
Water moons are sensitive, connected to their emotions, and intuitive, so this would include Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. A moon in Cancer means you’re emotionally sensitive and have a high intuition, a moon in Scorpio means you pick up on emotional subtext or mood shifts, and a moon in Pisces means you’re a daydreamer and romantic.
