My moon sign (yes, moon. Not sun-totally different) is in 27º Aries. This might mean nothing to you, unless you’re also an Aries moon, in which case I’d be impressed if you read to the end.
Wherever your moon is placed, the traits from that sign will surface-the moon influences how you react emotionally.
Assuming you’re somewhat knowledgable in Astrology, I’ll proceed. If not, then keep reading, but be sure to check back for future, more detailed posts on moon signs.
“Nothing quite happens soon enough with this position of the Moon. There is an inherent impatience with getting what they want. Life is a series of emergencies for Lunar Ariens. They live in the moment and have a hard time waiting for things to happen. Whims of the moment take absolute precedence in their lives.” –Cafe Astrology
Impatient. I know I explain myself with that word at least once a day. On the road in traffic. Waiting in line at the grocery store. Unlocking my phone to reply to a text I haven’t received back yet. Counting down the minutes until a client’s hair is finished processing. Do you know how many times I’ve removed foils before they were light enough? Not proud, but it all stems from my impatience. It definitely requires a conscious effort to maintain any type of self discipline on my part.
My emotions have a driving force that can only be explained by the element of Aries itself, which is fire. That force can be overwhelming, & easily shift my priorities in the midst of a moment, if I let it. The sign of Aries often carries the traits “ruthless” and “careless” with it. In my opinion, it takes a significant amount of self-awareness to not let these traits control or define you. Young, insecure, or just with no sense of direction, it’s easy to let these powerful & fleeting emotions drag you in an unhealthy way, and hurt others.
Channeling these energies in a more constructive way is so important. Often described as “tireless for a cause”, it’s only beneficial to be conscious and in control of where those energies are going. Directing my passion into my career, and also into a physical hobby is what I’ve found to work for myself. I’d have to say it worked for extremely successful people such as Steve Jobs, and Bill Gates, who both share an Aries moon. Running, lifting weights, and focusing on the body I want to have, releases so much of my innate restlessness. It gives me a clear mind, which allows me to have the logical approach I want in a given situation… especially since Aries is a moon placement that’s known for letting their heart rule their head.
Knowing and understanding your moon sign is a good first step for personal growth. Knowing and understanding the moon sign of people who are close to you can also be beneficial, helping you to relate to them better, and empathize with how they act/react emotionally. That deeper understanding always gives me a little more tolerance, and a softer approach in dealing with some of my annoyances in everyday life. We are who we are, after all.
