The Moon orbits the Earth. Many astrologers consider the Moon as important as the Sun in a person's birth chart. The Moon rules the sign of Cancer. It changes signs ever 2 and half days.

The Moon signifies security, our instincts, rest, and nurturance. In a birth chart, wherever the Moon is located is where the person has emotional intimacy and feels the most emotionally comfortable. For example, if the Moon is in the 3rd house, the person will usually have a need to talk about their feelings. The Moon in the 6th house can indicate a need to serve others.

In astrology, many also say the Moon symbolizes the archetype of the mother. It is also known for being moody, subjective, and responsive.

If the Moon is square or in opposition with the Sun, it can lead to difficult emotional states. If the Moon is in conjunction with the Ascendant, it can lead to the person being protective and nurturing.

In astrology, the Sun and the Moon are considered planets. The Sun is the most crucial part of the sky. It illuminates the other planets. The Sun in your birth chart is your identity. It also symbolizes your purpose. Your Sun sign isn't everything, but you can tell a great deal about yourself by studying where the Sun was when you were born.

Someone with a Gemini Sun may shine when learning and talking. A Capricorn sparkles it comes to working. What house it's in also matters. A person with a Gemini Sun in the 11th house has a strong need to belong. A person with Capricorn Sun in the 1st house may be courageous and independent.

"A full understanding of the Sun in a birth chart is an important step toward understanding the person". - Robert Hand, astrologer
