Discover your MOON SIGN

Most of you reading this know your Sun sign (or Star sign) which is the position of the sun when you were born. It’s known to have a strong influence on your personality, emotions and can better help you understand yourself and your relationships.

While you may know whether you’re an Aeries or Pisces, there is never light without darkness. To better understand our full astrological portrait, there’s another half to uncover — our moon sign.
So few people know about their moon sign, because you must know more than just your birthday to figure it out. The laws of the Moon’s motion can be complex — a special formula is needed.

“In astrology language, your Sun sign dictates your zodiac personality, while your Moon sign, the second most important influence in your horoscope chart after the Sun, represents your emotions, your inner mood. And the two together strongly influence your emotional mode of operation.”
– Harpers Bazaar



Your moon sign interprets your gut reaction, moods & how you intuitively prcess the world around you. It shows what you need. Your sun sign is all about your personality and persona.

Our shadow represents the qualities of ourselves we disown, suppress, or deny. These are the temperamental, emotionally reactive, “blame it on PMS” traits we apologize for when they leak out.

To make sure we are taking full advantage of the powers of these sun and moon signs, it’s important to understand them further.

We found a great tool to make sure our stars, suns and moons are all in check with each other. First, you must calculate your moon sign (and Zodiac sign if you don’t know it).

Discover your moon sign.

Once you’ve found both your Moon and Sun signs, follow the exercise below (via


  1. Organize your moon sign qualities into 2 lists: what you consider to be your emotional strengths & what seems like your emotional vulnerabilities.
  2. For what you consider your moon sign strengths, describe your sweet spot: the sort of environment & types of people that put you at ease. What kinds of places do you feel right at home in? (Hint: it’s totally fine if you say “my actual home”–especially in your moon is in Cancer!) What kind of people do you consider part of your tribe? What kind of mood do you like to be in? (A contemplative rainy-day mood; a focused in-the-zone mood; a soft-focused daydreamy sort of mood, etc.)
  3. For what you consider your moon sign VULNERABILITIES, describe the types of situations where your emotions get the best of you. What sort of situations enhance these vulnerabilities? What sort of people seem to play off of them? Recount true-life events in your journal if you life–in fact, rifling through your grimoire a.k.a. magical diary is a great place to start! Recount a few unsuccessful new moon rituals. What was your magical intent? When did your mojo start slacking? Can you remember your mood during the ritual, or in the days following the ritual? (If you haven’t kept a grimoire for that long, failed New Year’s resolutions are also a great place to look!)



  1. Now, research your SUN sign & make 2 more lists of qualities (strengths + vulnerabilities, again).
  2. For your sun sign’s STRENGTHS, describe the sort of people who bring out the best in you. Who pops into mind? Specific friends & family members? How do you prefer to socialize–interacting with your peers or colleagues, or with people you rank higher than? Are you a lone wolf or a team player? What sort of situations do you shine in?
  3. For your sun sign’s VULNERABILITIES, describe the sort of people & situations that usually throw you off your game. These will be peers & scenarios where you were thwarted from getting what you wanted. Like before, you can be as general or specific as you like.



Even if astrology isn’t necessarily your “thing” this is a great exercise to become better in tune with yourself. Give it a shot!
