When someone asks your moon sign, they are asking what sign the was moon in the moment you were born. It is just one piece to the puzzle that is your natal or birth chart. And quite honestly, it's an important one.
Your moon sign is a great way to understand your inner workings. If you think of the sun shining outward, picture the moon lighting up the darker, internal parts of us. The moon sign can help point us to what makes us feel emotionally secure or even a deeper purpose for being here. It can be used to explain how we respond to life's circumstances, especially emotionally. The moon is an important archetypal energy for us if we can translate its position in our chart to our lives here on earth.
One of the greatest studies I have dipped my toe into is that of Shamanic Astrology. In this practice, it is believed that the moon sign represents your soul's lineage. That it can link us to our deepest desires, drives, and our mastery from past lives. In turn, this can help us find our drive or purpose in this lifetime. It can help tell you what skills you were born with or where your shadows or addictions lie and how to help heal.
I love using our moon sign in this life to connect us to our past lives. Are the stars in fact laying down breadcrumbs to make it easier for us through the ages?
Here is a list of what the moon could represent in each sign. If you don't yet know yours, a simple online search of "what is my moon sign?" will bring you to the calculators needed. There are plenty out there to help!
