If you’re just barely starting to dive into astrology, a great place to start is by learning your moon sign. If you don’t know your sign yet, keep reading.
Explained below is everything you need to know about the different moon signs and what yours means.
What Is a Moon Sign?
Your moon sign indicates the position of the moon when you were born. Every 2-3 days, the moon moves into a different sign, so two people born under the same sun sign could have very different moon signs (and very different personalities) as a result.
Your moon sign shapes various aspects of your personality. It says a lot about your soul, your deep needs, and your emotions.
A person’s moon sign influences the strength of their sun sign (the position of the sun when they were born), too. For example, a Scorpio with a Pisces moon sign may be more emotional and intuitive than Scorpios with different moon signs.

There are twelve different moon signs.
In order to know your specific moon sign, you’ll need to know your birth date, the time of your birth, and the location of your birth. There are lots of calculators available online where you can plug in this information and get your moon sign.
