The Moon in Your Birth Chart
The Moon is a feminine planet associated with Mother and the Inner Child and describes what we need to feel safe. The Moon reveals how you relate to your significant other and she describes your parenting style. Generally speaking, women and children are better at identifying with their Moon because our society tends to devalue the feminine and the childlike. We are - thankfully - finally breaking free from stereotypes but if you notice that you have trouble relating to your Moon it may be that you are unconsciously holding onto a label or stereotype or if you are a woman, you may be identifying with the more masculine and assertive part of your personality (Sun).
Here is what your Moon needs according to her placement by element:
Moon in Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
The Moon in any of the Earth signs needs tangible proof of affection and love. The Moon here says: If you love me you will hold me, feed me, touch me and give me gifts.
Children with this placement require a predictable routine (all children require routine, but Earth Moons more so). They also require regular tokens of affection like notes in their lunchbox.
Moon in Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
The Moon in any of the water signs needs to feel merged in a special relationship or in friendships, emotionally connected. The Moon here says: If you love me you will merge with me, cry with me, share your deepest secrets, and know how I’m feeling without me having to tell you how I feel.
Children with this placement require lots and lots of hugs and reassurance that their feelings are valid. Make sure you spend time near water with your Water Moon child.
Moon in Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
The Moon in the Air signs finds it difficult to show affection but does know how to talk about feelings. The Moon here says: If you love me you will talk to me. You will tell me All The Things and you will feed my mind with curious and wonderful information. You will also give me space.
Children with this placement need space and mental stimulation. While they may not require encouragement to share their ideas and thoughts, make sure you provide them with space to do so.
Moon in Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
The Moon in Fire signs expresses affection and love by being warm and encouraging. The Moon here says: I will play with you. I will create with you. I will take risks with you. I will push you and encourage you to achieve your goals and live your dreams.
Children with this placement need art supplies and sport and other creative outlets. These children adore treasure hunts and going on spontaneous adventures.
