ZODIAC FIRE: “The Perfect Soulmate For Each Zodiac Sign…”

This type of astrological ‘soulmate’ article usually makes my eyes roll… but what the heck… 😉

AstroLove

Have you ever wondered what astrology can teach you about your ideal soulmate?

By closely analyzing your zodiac sign you can get a much better idea of who you’ll be most compatible with in the love department.

So without further ado, here are the traits and characteristics that each of the signs should be looking for when seeking out their soulmate!

Aries soulmate: a confident go-getter who can keep up with them.

The Aries is an aggressively enterprising personality who likes to live life in the fast lane.  They don’t have time to be dragged down and need a partner that can keep up.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody who is confident, assertive and not afraid to take bold risks.

Potential soulmates: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Gemini and Aquarius.

Taurus soulmate: a loyal and romantic type who only has eyes for them.

For the right person the Taurus will stay loyal ’til the very end.  But they need someone who can return the favor and reciprocate their strong sense of commitment.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody who is trustworthy, straight-forward and who doesn’t play mind games because frankly, Taurus ain’t got time for that.  They also love romantic types who can make them feel like they are the only person in the world!

Potential soulmates: Cancer, Capricorn, Virgo and Pisces.

Gemini soulmate: somebody with a brain, a sense of humor and enough differences to keep things interesting.

The Gemini can be kind of picky about who they date so you should feel special if they choose you.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody who is funny, clever and interesting.  It helps if you also have just enough differences from the Gemini to ensure that things never get stale or boring!

Potential soulmates: Leo, Libra, Aries and Aquarius.

Cancer soulmate: an intelligent, affectionate and sensual soul with an empathetic heart.

The Cancer has a huge heart and a lot of love to give… but if you want to truly win them over then you need to be able to return the favor.  They need somebody who is intelligent enough to captivate their mind but also affectionate enough to make them feel special and loved.  They don’t have much time for selfishness so their ideal mate must also be caring and emphatic.

Potential soulmates: Scorpio, Taurus, Pisces and Virgo.

Leo soulmate: somebody who is confident, mysterious and able to keep them on their toes.

The Leo is hopelessly drawn to confident yet mysterious personalities.  They want somebody who is up for adventure and that’s not afraid to put themselves out there.  But also, someone intriguing enough to keep them guessing and looking forward to what comes next!

Potential soulmates: Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius and Aries.

Virgo soulmate: somebody sophisticated, complex, ambitious, and totally devoted.

The Virgos soulmate is somebody complex and sophisticated like a luxurious french wine.  But they should also be driven and ambitious and not someone who just lays around all day accomplishing absolutely nothing.  Most of all though, the Virgo needs somebody who will be as committed to the relationship as they are!

Potential soulmates: Scorpio, Capricorn, Cancer and Taurus.

Libra soulmate: someone with looks, brains and confidence to match!

The Libra has high standards when it comes to love and they wont just settle for any random person.  Their soulmate is likely to be a triple threat: someone with looks, brains and confidence.  They like physical beauty because they have a thing for aesthetics.  They’re into intelligence because they are clever and get bored by slow minds.  And they dig confidence because, well, they just like someone that knows what they want!

Potential soulmates: Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius and Leo.

Scorpio soulmate: someone who can challenge them and feed off of their passion and intensity.

When you’re with a Scorpio their love is deep, intense and totally unconditional.  But, they need someone who can challenge them and feed off of their fire.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody with depth and imagination, who thinks and feels deeply, but who doesn’t necessarily reveal all of their cards at once.  They love a bit of mystery and intrigue and are also hopelessly drawn to a sharp wit!

Potential soulmates: Pisces, Virgo, Capricorn and Cancer.

Sagittarius soulmate: an open-minded, free-spirited soul who doesn’t insist on trying to “change” them.

Sagittarians value their freedom and independence and don’t need anyone getting too possessive or clingy on them.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody with a fun-loving and open-minded approach to life.  They’re not big on having endless rules and routines nor do they need anyone trying to change or “fix” them as though they were some kind of pet project.  Their soulmate will be someone who can build them up and who they can take on the world with… not somebody who wants to clip their wings!

Potential soulmates: Leo, Aquarius, Aries and Libra.

Capricorn soulmate: a classy, stylish, intriguing soul that can engage their mind and remain loyal ’til the end.

The Capricorn is not afraid of being picky when it comes to lovers, especially when it comes to seeking out someone who is “soul mate” material.  Their ideal partner has a bit of class and style to them, and some pride in who they are.  They should also possess some intelligence and be able to engage with them in a deep and meaningful way.  But above all else, they should be trustworthy and loyal… the Capricorn needs someone that they can count on!

Potential soulmates: Pisces, Taurus, Virgo and Scorpio.

Aquarius soulmate: someone committed but fun-loving, with a wicked sense of humor and a talent for cooking!

The ideal soulmate for the Aquarius is likely to have a fun and outgoing personality and they’ve gotta be up for an occasional crazy adventure.  They’re also wildly attracted to those that have a wicked sense of humor and a sharp wit.  If you can make ’em laugh you can make ’em do just about anything.  Being able to cook is also a big plus because damn does the Aquarius love to eat!

Potential soulmates: Libra, Aries, Gemini and Sagittarius.

Pisces soulmate: somebody with confidence, a creative mind and an ability to get on their wavelength.

Pisces live in a world of their own and they never take life too seriously or literally.  Their ideal soulmate is somebody with a healthy dose of self-confidence, a wild and creative mind and an ability to think in a non-linear way.  Most of all they just need somebody they can connect and communicate with in a deep and meaningful way.

Potential soulmates: Cancer, Scorpio, Capricorn and Taurus.

SELACIA: “Tips for Riding December’s Energy Wave”

energy-waves

Set your intention now to do what you can to calm frayed nerves, get fresh perspectives, repair relationship discord, and find a new inspiration for your life path.”

~Selacia

 

In this article I’ll describe some of the energies we will be dealing with in December, and what they may mean for you on a personal level. First, as background, it’s quite common that how a year ends sets the tone of how the next one starts. I’m speaking in general here, not so much about your personal life. As you continue reading though, invite your inner wisdom to show you what applies to you personally, and how you can put in action some simple remedies for challenging energies.

Recent Energies

Regardless of where you live or your life circumstances, these past several weeks and months have involved challenging energies and stressful outer world circumstances. Most likely right now, you have more questions than answers – involving a host of things – due in part to the craziness that has unfolded globally. The U.S. elections, as an example, involved such unusual happenings that they represent a marker moment that will only be fully understood months or years from now.

We have moved through key energy thresholds the past couple of months, another on its way in December. Each one of these thresholds is a reality check of sorts, all of us and humanity moving through a new crossroads and needing to consciously choose how we together move forward. It is essential that we stay awake and actively participate in these moments, even if sometimes we may prefer to take a long vacation or simply disconnect from what’s going on.

What’s in Store for December

Here are a few highlights of what’s in store for December: First, it’s the holiday season, that time of year when time seems to evaporate and we tend to be in celebration mode and spend time with family and friends. If you typically find the holidays challenging, this year’s intense energies could stir even more squabbles with people. These quarrels may be personal or they may relate to outer world events. Reduce tensions and enjoy your time more with active self-censoring of words you might later regret. Remember: you don’t have to agree on everything to love people – give people space.

Second, the first week of December is an excellent time to connect with inspirations, self-confidence, and insights about your life and projects either under way or on your future wish list. Be sure to take some down time for reflection and pay attention to social connections that may bring nice surprises and tangible support for your next steps. Think big picture. Many people you meet may at first appear unconnected to your future life, yet they indeed are directly or indirectly helpful conduits for you. It goes both ways, too – you are helped by them and vice versa.

Third, note your calendar for the December 13 Supermoon. This will be a powerful Gemini Full Moon, with a focus on key endings and leaving behind outmoded approaches and situations. Themes or issues that come into your awareness at this Supermoon can be further explored and worked with during the rest of the month. Key times for inner work on these include the week of the December 21 Solstice and the final week of the year including at the December 28 New Moon. Consider these dates as cosmic opportunities along a pathway that leads to a brand-new destination where you can more fully embody the light that you are, and be successful in the process.

Tips for Riding December’s Energy Wave

Answering Your Wake Up Call: Think of December as your wake up call about your status quo. Use these last days of the year to go deeper than normal with your self-reflection. You deserve the quiet time to do this, and in 2017 you will be grateful to yourself for claiming the time! No one will give the time to you unless you take it. Be greedy with this time. Consider this: the more resourced you are on all levels, the happier you will be. As you feel more tranquil, more fulfilled, and more confident about your place in the world, your ability to contribute to others increases by leaps and bounds.

Five Questions to Ask Daily: To accelerate your progress with letting go of the old and creating brand-new life templates, here are five questions to ask daily:

  1. What inspires me to do the work I do or live as I am living?
  2. What is motivating me to change direction or add something to my life?
  3. What is the good involved with my current challenge or troublesome situation?
  4. How am I sabotaging myself with self-talk?
  5. What is the one thing most important to keep and the one thing most important to leave behind as I move forward?

Be honest with yourself about answers you receive to these questions. Allow for the possibility, as you ask these daily, that some answers either change or are expanded upon. Be open to the possibility that in your simple act of questioning, the universe opens a quantum treasure chest of helpful insights and validations about your path ahead. Know that no matter what, you are a divine changemaker, alive now for a unique purpose and part to play in the awakening of humanity.

ALETHEIA LUNA: “Astrology Personality Profiles – Finding Peace of Mind According to Your Zodiac Sign”

image.jpeg

As above, so below. As within, so without.

–Hermes Trismegistus, circa 3000 BC

 

For thousands of years man has been looking to the stars for guidance and knowledge. Astrology dates back to 2,000 BC, and was carefully studied by the ancient Indians, Mayans, Greeks, Chinese and Arabs independently of each other. Not only that, but astrology has been used as a way to study human personality and motivation, such as in psychiatrist Carl Jung’s work.

Through observation and analysis, it was discovered that there were correlations between the movement of heavenly bodies, and life here on earth. Through time, twelve distinct astrology personality types evolved.

These days, many people have opposing opinions about astrology. While some skeptics think of it as pseudoscience and wishful thinking, others swear by astrology, raising strong arguments in favor of it.  Personally, I don’t think the validity of astrology should be whittled down to reductionist scientific studies – it’s a complex topic. But on the other hand, I take astrology with a playful “pinch of salt” … maybe that’s the strange mix of Leo (fire) and Cancer (water) within me!

12 Astrology Personality Type Profiles

According to astrology, contentment and peace of mind can be found based on your personality’s characteristics.

LARA STARR: “How Each Sign of the Zodiac Expresses Their Anger”

Zodiac 2

It doesn’t matter who you are. Everyone gets angry from time to time. And when we’re angry, we tend to leave patience, humility and common sense behind, even if only for a moment. Maybe once we realize how we typically respond to things that anger us, we can work on delivering a better response.

So, here are some of the typical things each zodiac sign usually has to work on when it comes to acting out in anger.

Aries-shutterstock_52556017 (1)
Arians are definitely one of the quickest to anger. After all, they are one of the fire signs. They have a burning fire within them and at times you may see bouts of that fire bursting forth in anger. This is their dark side.

They don’t usually start arguments with people, but they certainly know how to end them. At times they can be impatient and volatile, especially when pushed past their limits or when they are forced to deal with something before they believe they are ready.

But, as quick as they are to anger, they are usually just as quick to calm down and even forgive those who angered them in the first place. They are one of the signs most capable of ‘forgiving and forgetting’.

Taurus-
Taureans are usually quite fair tempered creatures. They tend to be very slow to anger. But when they do get angry, you had better watch out! Disloyalty, inequality, betrayal, those are the sort of things that really get on their nerves. Other than that, most Taureans don’t want to waste their time and energy on getting angry.

shutterstock_52556008When they do get angry it can take a long time for them calm them down again. It’s best to give them space until that time.

Unless of course, Taurus is calm enough to try and talk things out. If they are, give them a chance to get their thoughts out in the open, otherwise you may anger them even more for refusing to listen.

After the argument is over, they are usually very quick to forgive, unless of course you’ve done something extreme that they consider unforgivable.

They will still be civil with you in most cases afterward, but you won’t be able to bring the relationship back to what it once was.

Gemini-
As you probably already know, Geminis are known as the Twins. You may as well flip a coin when it comes to how they’re going to react when in anger.

shutterstock_52556020

They may seem completely calm and centered when their words of anger cut you to the core.

Geminis LOVE to talk. That’s usually what they do best. When in anger that does not change.

When you piss off a Gemini, get ready to be chewed out. Anger may start as rudeness or sarcasm, but it can quickly change to screaming, yelling and throwing things.

Luckily, they don’t tend to stay angry for an extended period.

As long as you don’t tell a Gemini what to do or how to act, they may be able to forgive and forget.

Cancer-
Cancers are a very sweet, understanding, loyal and loving sign. And that’s really all they want in return. If they feel unloved, unappreciated or offended by something, the first sign is usually sulking.

If you’re not getting the hints, it may evolve into shutterstock_52555993passive aggressive behavior. If you’re still not getting the hints, they will more than likely go into hiding.

Cancers in recluse mode may act as though they really do not want to talk to you, but that is usually just a ruse. In most cases they actually do want to work things out, they just don’t want to be the ones making all the effort.

If you ignore them or blow them off, they will take it as even more evidence that you don’t care, thus doing more damage to the relationship.

Since they are so loving and loyal, they expect their loved ones to be as well. They will usually forgive you not long after, so long as the argument isn’t over something major.

Leo-
When it comes to arguments with Leo’s, it’s all about who can roar the loudest. Just about anything will set them off, and when it does, they will certainly let you know about it.shutterstock_52555996

They will kick, scream, rant, rave, throw things around the house and make quite the spectacle.

They will probably say a bunch of hurtful things that they don’t actually mean too, so don’t take it personally. They’re just trying to get their anger out in the best way they know how – by venting.

After they’ve cooled off they won’t hold a grudge. In fact, they are probably most likely to come back in the room soon after, acting like nothing happened at all. They are quick to anger, but they are quick to move past it as well.

Virgo-
Virgos are one of the most patient and loving signs. They can take an unbelievable amount of abuse from people before they start showing signs of frustration and anger.

They try to avoid doing so because they aren’t very comfortable expressing shutterstock_52555990their anger. But when they need to let it out, their emotions can get very intense.  Their anger can be so strong, you may even feel it from the other room.

Virgos are still quite passive aggressive when angry too. They usually avoid confrontation and arguments at all cost. They find it much easier to walk away when they are angry, rather than sticking around to scream it out.

Virgos are also very forgiving, and won’t really hold a grudge. Then again, they don’t tend to forget either.

They are far less likely to trust someone after they realize their trust has been misplaced.

Libra-
Libras is the peacekeeper sign, so the scales are the perfect symbol for them. They always try to keep things equal and well balanced in their relationships, so anger and outbursts are avoided at all costs. That’s why they tend to keep quiet and bottle everything up until their lose their cool.

shutterstock_52556011

However, since they are one of the most sensitive signs, just about anything under the right circumstances can set them off.

When angry words start flying around, that’s when Libra usually makes a run for it. They may say a few choice words, but usually those words are shouted as they’re running off.

Even at the verge of their rage, they will hold back, think twice, and put up the sweetest poker face they can muster.

If you hurt them enough times, they will certainly hold a grudge.

They also tend to take note of all the things they hate about a certain situation, and then mentally file them away to use against you later on.

Scorpio-
Want to know if a scorpio is angry? Watch their eyes. They tend to let you know with their eyes a lot sooner than they do with the rest of their body language. Like a few signs we previously mentioned, Scorpio is another one that tends to keep shutterstock_52556002 (1)their anger on lockdown. For a time, anyway.

They tend to get angry in their head first, then they plan their next actions accordingly.

Sometimes their only action is to chew you out in their mind without saying a word. Other times, they are just quiet because they are planning their next argument in advance.

This usually happens long before they are angry enough to explode. So, if you see the angry eyes and then they get really quiet – it’s probably best to give them some space until they seek you out to talk things over.

If you try and push them into sharing their thoughts too soon, you may regret it.

Scorpios are also one of the signs that are more likely to hold long term grudges. They may forgive, but they will never, ever, forget.

Sagittarius-
Dishonesty, disloyalty, cruelty and hate speech of any kind is usually enough to anger a Sagittarius, and when a Sag gets angry they take no prisoners. When you piss one off, you know it, and you better walk away. Fast. Though, they do tend to have a lot of patience with most people so you probably won’t see them get angry very often.shutterstock_52555999

The first sign of irritation before anger arises is most likely to be overwhelming sarcasm.

If a Sagittarius is getting angry, their conversation is probably just dripping with it. Most Sag’s try to keep their anger under wraps because losing their cool can make them feel quite embarrassed after they’ve calmed down.

The most important thing to watch out for, is that they don’t create drama out of boredom.

Sag’s like problem solving and working out issues, so they can occasionally create problems at home or work without consciously intending to.

Capricorn-
Capricorns are an earth sign, so they are pretty easy going most of the time. However, they can have some rigid requirements for keeping the peace at home.

shutterstock_52556005

Most likely because they simply want their space to be kept how they like it.

You never know what will make a capricorn angry. You may not even notice when they first get angry either.

That’s because Capricorns also tend to keep their emotions bottled up. Especially the negative ones. They’d much rather sulk and give you the cold shoulder over yelling.

In the end, they may lose their cool for a second and make a big fuss, but they will get over it quickly.

They will usually forgive you after they tell you how disappointed they are in you.

Aquarius-
Aquarians really can’t stand to argue, especially when it comes to pointless arguments with stubborn people. They are the ones most likely to ignore you when they’re angry. They’d much prefer go for a walk or a drive rather than stick around and argue it out.shutterstock_52556014

If they can’t avoid what’s irritating them, they may feel cornered and explode out of sheer frustration.

They will then abruptly avoid you at all costs until they have calmed down again.

Or, they may just avoid you completely in the future. It all depends on who the argument is with. If it’s a new relationship, they may not see worth in the effort of repairing it.

Pisces-
With a Piscean it all depends on what kind of day you catch them on. Ifthey’re already having a bad day, they may explode if you set them off.

shutterstock_52555987

If their day is going either way, then most Pisceans tend to avoid confrontation at all costs.

They would much rather go have a smoke or a drink to help them calm down, rather than stick around for an argument.

If that doesn’t make them feel better, then usually a good cry will.

They are probably the sign most likely to start crying out of frustration and anger, rather than flying into a rage and smashing things. of

When it comes to grudges, Pisceans will hold them in extreme situations, but for how long all depends on the circumstances.

AVIA VENEFICA: “Moon Sign Meanings & Personality Types”

  MoonSignMeaning2

Avia Venefica seems to nail the moon sign personality traits. She sure did with mine! (Pisces) 😀

Moon signs are an astrological term indicating which zodiac sign the moon’s presence was in during the time of our birth.

You’ll know your lunar sign by the date, time and place of your birth. These details indicate the placement of the moon within the 12 zodiac signs when you were born.

For example, if the moon was stationed within the constellation of Sagittarius on your birthday, then… you guessed it, your lunar sign would be Sagittarius.

In a nutshell, a moon sign is the polarity of a sun sign (sun signs being the most commonly known, and the sign on which your horoscope in the newspapers is based).

Sun signs are assertive, active, vital, outgoing and these are the personality aspects of ourselves we willingly expose to the world around us. (see Symbolism of the Sun here)

Lunar signs, however are quite the opposite. They represent the unseen, intuitive, emotional, psychic, instinctive perspectives of our personality.

Some astrologists maintain our moon sign represents our unconscious. I don’t know if I buy that, because some of us are extremely aware of our moon-side behaviors. And, if we’re aware of a thing, we’re certainly conscious of it.

I would agree, however, that lunar signs are symbolic of our shadow selves. Those aspects we keep secret. We might even keep some of these aspects secrets from ourselves – and that would certainly go under the category of “unconscious.”

Lunar signs are connected with our primitive instinct too, and so a modicum of unconsciousness could be involved here. Many instincts can be judged as distasteful, and so the moon can hide that unpleasant aspect from ourselves.

Many of us are unwilling to investigate our moon signs for fear of touching those dark aspects of ourselves. But just because our lunar personality traits are cloaked, doesn’t mean their bad.

This is a common misunderstanding. In fact, we owe it to ourselves to explore our shadow sides. We experience unbalance by not knowing ourselves fully (light and dark) – and that unbalance can represent major problems.

Besides, lunar signs are amazing keys unlocking a myriad of mysteries within us and the world around us.

For example, our lunar sign is also a clue to our maternal instincts as well as traits we may have inherited from our mothers.

There are scads of esoteric doors that our lunar sign holds the key to unlocking.

Learning and exploring your moon sign will aid you in unlocking secrets in the following areas…

Knowing Your Moon Sign Helps With:

  • Developing Intuition
  • Emotional Behaviors
  • Feminine Influences
  • Instinctive Behaviors
  • Unconscious Desires
  • Childhood Influences
  • Psychic Development
  • Enhancing Receptivity
  • Motherly Inheritances
  • Understanding Dreams
  • Environmental Awareness
  • Uncovering Hidden Motives
  • Past Memory and Regression
  • Pleasure and Sensual Preferences

Meaning of Astrological Moon Signs

Moon signs represent proclivities and vast potentials within us that are often obscured by a murky veil of midnight in our awareness.

Where a sun sign represents active principals of ourselves, our moon signs are far more elusive.

Some astrologists define our moon sign as our unconscious. Others say our lunar traits are primal and describe our instinctual motivations.

I say our moon sign is a vessel of promise, to be viewed through the mystical telescope of focused awareness. Once that light of awareness shines on our lunar faces, a whole new universe of self-understanding is made known to us.

The following entries are a sampling of some personality traits of moon signs.

Summary of Moon Sign Personality Traits

Aries Moon SignsMoon Signs in Aries:
You light up best when you’re recognized for your talents, but this can be a bit dodgy because Aries as your moon sign dictates a bit of modesty with your accomplishments (had you Aries in your sun, there’d be no issue with tooting your own horn). Nevertheless, you are illuminated with incredible perseverance, so even if you aren’t bragging about your inventiveness and accomplishments most people will see you shine brightly simply because you never give up, and persist in your goals. You’ve got a brilliant sense of humor that puts people at ease. This is a good thing because your exuberance and full-on voltage is sometimes off-putting to more sedate or reserved people. But you can’t be asked to hold back from your electric impulsiveness – you absolutely must express yourself. You do this exceedingly well in group projects – you are a consummate cheerleader; always motivating the group.


 

Taurus Moon SignsMoon in Taurus:
Your moon side becomes illuminated when you are clear about your place, and where you stand within the grand scheme of things. You like utter honesty, and if you feel mind games are being played, you want no part of it. You tend to be very classy, with killer taste in design, fashion, art, etc. In fact, you need to surround yourself with refinery and loveliness. Otherwise, you’ll pick up on lower energies and dingy or sullied environments will send you to an abyss of depression. Taurean moon signs have notorious inner-wisdom. Your job is to trust that inner-knowing (because often these signs lack the conviction behind their gut instincts) because you are always dead-right. Do not make a move until you feel it is right on a visceral level. It’s your gift, and a fantastic tool for self-preservation. Trust your inner guidance, always.


 

Gemini Moon SignsMoon Signs in Gemini:
Your mind is as sharp and clear as the fullest moon in the sky on a crystal-bright night. With this kind of mental alacrity comes a tendency to over-think. And, with over-thinking comes anxiety, worry or even doubt about your own judgment. Gemini moons do best when they can balance their active minds with some sort of creative outlet. Music is particularly effective as it activates both left and right brain functions. You have remarkable communication skills. You easily speak to others with confidence, and have the uncanny ability to “know” what is being said to you – even when your mind is thinking instead of listening to what the other is saying. This makes you an effective liaison, communicator and negotiator – but to a point. Gemini moons must be heard. If you feel you aren’t being listened to, you’ll tend to retreat from the scene (rather than push your point).


 

Cancer Moon SignsMoon in Cancer:
You shine your brightest when your mission to help, heal and support others. Moreover, you are “over the moon” with joy when you can see all your hard work pay off. You need to see the difference you make in the lives of others – this is your highest reward. Of course, recognition for all your support and nurturing is a great motivation for you too. As a moon sign, you’re not likely to show your touchy-feely-emotional nature to others, which is ironic seeing as how you are such a great mentor and supportive ally. Give acknowledgement to your inner stirrings rather than hide them. You’ve got amazing intuitive skills and, under stress you’re known to just blurt out thoughts on your mind that are incredibly accurate on a psychic level. You can train yourself to express your intuition more fluidly and openly, but you’ve got to open up a bit, come out of your shell.


 

Leo Moon SignsMoon Signs in Leo:
No amount of night will dampen your gloriously bright light. You have energy that is undeniable. Indeed, if someone denies you your proper place of respect and authority, it does not bode well. You are in your element when you are being admired for your amazing wit, charm and intelligence. With your sharp intellect comes a tendency to process to quickly and this makes you miss subtle clues in communication with others. Consequently, some misunderstandings can take you completely by surprise. Just remember the phases of the moon, and train your mind to move a bit like a rolling storm (rather than at lightning speed). You like to take risks, and these usually pay off for you because you tend to be naturally lucky. Perhaps that’s why your outlook is usually optimistic.


 

Virgo Moon SignsMoon in Virgo:
You know how the moon orbits the earth? Well, your intuition orbits everything, and that means you’re often on “sensory overload” making you anxious and twitchy much of the time. Virgin moons tend to pick things up arbitrarily like a sponge gathers water. What’s more, you try to make sense of it all – putting chaos into order. Sorting out details and making everything tidy and logical tends to make you edgy, and others often have no idea what’s gotten you irritated. Just know you are this way, and be patient and accepting of this aspect of yourself. This kind of intuition is a gift. Work with it. And while you’re at it, ease up on the self-criticism. No one else is as harshly critical about you – so why are you being so relentless with yourself? Simply know your standards (even for yourself) are higher than everyone else’s. That means your “average” performance is actually excellence by anyone else’s standards.


 

Libra Moon SignsMoon Signs of Libra:
Your life is best illuminated when you keep things simple. You see tremendous beauty in the simplest elements, and seek to keep purity and clarity in place in all your dealings. Just because you have a need for simplicity doesn’t mean you’re life is uncomplicated. A moon in Libra is always looking for a yin to your yang (or vice versa). Meaning, you’re always seeking a complimentary balance to your energy – particularly in partnerships. You love a challenge, and you work very hard to balance the equation by finding solutions. This means you often attract partnerships with people who have some glaring flaws (because you know you can tip the balance and sort them out). You have incredible style too. The arts, fashion and literary excellence lures every inch of your inherent creativity and electrifies you.


 

Scorpio Moon SignsMoon in Scorpio:
You’ll find your more emotionally synchronized during the waning moon. This is because you process better in private, where watching eyes cannot see you. You are deeply intuitive and other people’s thoughts and feelings reveal themselves to you like curious magic. With all this information coming your way, it’s no wonder you need time alone to process everything. Your challenge is to be more forgiving of your natural cycles (you get impatient and angry with yourself – and tend to hide these feelings from others which just exacerbates your tension). You also tend to be guarded, and take great measures to manipulate your environment to match your ideal setting. And you are incredibly idealistic, which is a fabulous balance to your intensity.


 

Sagittarius Moon SignsMoon Signs in Sagittarius:
The moon is constantly in motion, which compounds your Sagittarian need for activity, variety and mobility. Ever the adventurer, you require life to show you excitement and high times. When things get dull, you get weary and set looking for something better, brighter. This need for shiny newness sometimes gets you into trouble because sometimes you stir the pot in the wrong direction – churning up too much activity or drama. Your saving grace is a strong sense of justice, and a love for humanity. These passions bring about your philosophical nature, which easily puts you in a position of teacher and mentor. Actually, you’re quite a brilliant tutor, and win a great deal of admiration from your followers (of which, there are many). It’s your enthusiasm that holds people in rapt attention of you and your teachings.


 

Capricorn Moon SignsMoon in Capricorn:
To those who don’t know you well, you appear as cool as the moon. In control, self-disciplined and dignified, you are often mistaken as unfeeling. You’re extremely productive, capable and thorough. This means you make everything you do look easy, which can also put people off. They have no idea beneath your cool exterior you are pragmatically planning the next five moves in your strategy to accomplish your goals. And accomplish goals is a forte. A unique mixture of patience, willingness and dogged determination usually insures victory. You’re also remarkably dependable; others naturally seek you out for guidance and advice. Your special ability to stay collected under pressure makes you a fantastic leader. You also win respect from your peers easily because you don’t just talk the talk (you rarely boast), you actually walk the walk. You prove your value through consistent action. People really look up to you for that, and admire your integrity.


 

Aquarius Moon SignsMoon Signs in Aquarius:
Nothing much gets past you, particularly when communicating with others. You’re the one who hears what a person is saying, but is also knows what is unsaid. I’d hate to play poker with you because you’re the one who knows everybody’s tells and quirky mannerisms. It’s the moon that enhances your knack for perception, and the Aquarian nature is to intellectualize what you’re perceiving. So, it only makes sense you are able to “read” people to the extreme. In fact, a lot of your decisions and actions are based on unseen intellect. This makes you look a wee bit daft or eccentric to others. Odds are you don’t mind the label – maybe even relish it. Although you have brilliant perception of what others are all about, you never use it for ill will. Quite the contrary. You are a humanitarian, and easily serve as a catalyst for positive change in the lives of those around you. You also give off a comforting, secure vibe that puts people at ease and makes them trust you. This enhances your ability to help others.


 

Pisces Moon SignsMoon in Pisces:
You live on the darker side of the moon and tend to be reserved, sometimes downright withdrawn. Some people mistake this for shyness, but that’s really not the case. You’re just sensitive. Deeply sensitive. In fact, you have a vein of psychic gold that is so accurate, it’s scary even to yourself at times. You are incredibly gifted in your powers of observation. Even better, you are incredibly shrewd, you make accurate assessments and have sound judgment. This unique combination makes you a force to be reckoned with, but you tend to use your powers in creative ways. As long as others allow you to work and play in your own unique way you’re able to remain pretty content. However, if pushed into conformity, or criticized can unleash a raging sea of animosity. No one can blame you though because you have such a unparalleled perspective of the world – you really deserve to dance to your own specialized music and rhythm.
