Moon in Leo

If you have your Moon in Leo, you have a sun for a heart.

Your inner emotional nature is uniquely your own. I always say this is the Moon sign that is most likely to be unapologetically honest about their feelings. The reason for this honesty stems from the fact their strong will power and sense of self is reflected in their emotional world.

If you have Moon in Leo, you might not be always comfortable with emotional displays of even the concept of intense feelings but you are very aware that in some ways you wear your heart on your sleeve. The Leo Moon can be shy at first but would learn to hold itself to a high standard of conduct and expression. The things you feel get projected into everything you do and can’t be hidden. There is a child-like quality of self-centered grandiosity to you that wins people over.

You are selfish in that you interpret things through your own self-centered emotional needs. This is true about all people but because the Moon here is ruled by the Sun you are especially prone to that. This is an amazing strength because you are usually able to stay so centered in your own heart that no matter what is going on with the people around you and how they feel- you stay true to yourself. In that regard, the Leo Moon is similar to its opposite Aquarius Moon. Both of these Moon placements are very good at staying their own individual even when they are emotionally blackmailed by family, friends or lovers. You really have little respect for people who get too swayed by feelings to the point of losing self-respect.

There is something about you that is very warm-blooded and self-sufficient. You know deep down love belongs to us all and you seem to radiate an energy of tremendous creativity, passion and a playful lust for life. This quality makes you very attractive to people who are in a dark place and to other energy vampires. The fact that you have a strong connection to your inner child seems to make you even more vulnerable to people who just want to feast off your energy. Thankfully, your self-centered perspective allows you to get away unscathed and with your head held high even in situations when someone tries to dampen your mood.

The most charming quality you hold is this strange balance between a selfish yet vulnerable child and an old wise king. As you grow older you will learn better how to express your own feelings in such a way that brings the best in other people. In fact, this is probably the highest quality of the Leo Moon. These are the people who know how to lead by example and who seem to really become popular when they take pride in your own emotional well-being. Learning to be able to take care of yourself is probably the most important lesson for you. You need to stop searching for the light of approval f other people and instead spread your own light and perspective to the world. The most common way a Leo Moon does that is through some sort of imaginative creative pursuit and dramatization of their own inner world.

The creative talent is very prominent and many actors, musicians and theater directors have this placement. Even if you are far from the art world you are still likely to be a prominent figure in your own circle of subjects.

You can be shy at first especially as a child because it might seem you really can’t hide how large your heart is, it can be a sense of embarrassment to have your selfish needs to so loudly spoken. You will hide this part of yourself and channel it into an expression of some sorts that is more acceptable. This search for a more “acceptable” expression of your own inner king or queen often leads to some mastery of a talent. Still, your loved ones know how generous and genuine you are even if they might find you don’t always understand them so well.

You take pride in your early family and upbringing. In fact, even if your childhood was nothing to write home about you would still carry around a sense of accomplishment at having grown up the way you did. As a teenager it would matter for you to belong to a group of friends and have a supportive network around you. It can be said you hold friendships to be more important than romantic relationships. For you dating and romance is often a sense of passion. drama and upheaval that you can enjoy but don’t always value. You hurt the most when someone you love doesn’t respect your individuality and right to accomplishment. You are at your best a very supportive partner who wants to see the person you love role the world and follow their dreams. If that person doesn’t offer you the same sense of respect and supportive encouragement you would become very wounded. For you, respect maters a lot more than acts of service or any gift a lover can give.

Life should never stop being excited and colorful and no one should ever tell you that what you want is “too much”. In fact, you are not likely to tolerate that for very long. You have a generous spirit that is abundant with desire for the best in life and settling for less makes you very depressed. Many Leo Moon’s love the romantic early stages of a relationship but struggle with the mundane and regular aspects of actually living with another person. By nature you can be emotional or even shy but there is a confidence within you because you know you have purpose. You have the wonderful ability to embrace life fully in all its shades and to allow other s o also feel like they can do so.

The courage you have to just accept your right to life and all it offers is exactly what makes you a good leader, artist, lover and friend. On the flip side, it can be hard for you to truly see life from the perspective of other people and their emotional needs. In is therefore really good for you to have people around you to advice or offer insights into situations. You can usually trust your own heart to show you where to go but sometimes you get too caught in your own vision of what you want. Your inner world is that colorful exciting dream that you want to impose on reality. You warm the heart of those around you when you gaze in wonder at life. The flare you have for the poetic, dramatic and romantic make you survive through the cold days of a more gray and sometimes hard reality.

The twinkle in your eye is warm and inviting to all those who seek a sense of mission and importance in the world. Ultimately, you lead other people towards their own true Self and that makes you a natural leader and psychologist. You never bend down or become a servant of others unless for artistic purposes and that keeps you safe from anyone who wants to just use you.

As long as you stay on the path and keep yourself open to criticism and the experiences of others that are different you would shine and gain a creative support from the universe. You are after all a real child of light even if you like a darker dramatic flare on top of it.

Moon in Virgo – the Beautiful Mind

I was debating writing about this Moon- it is one of the more demanding but then I thought how demanding it must be for those born with it- and decided to stop complaining.

So what is the Moon like in Virgo? Well the Moon is our mental and emotional inner image, it is how we react to things we care about. And what do we care about? When we are little we care about being loved, home, family and when we grow up this translates into our adult relationships.

Traditionally Virgo is very rational, analytical, detail oriented, but don’t forget it is also an Earth sign and one of the more sensual ones at that. Virgo thinks but it also feels through its practical endeavors. What makes the Virgo feel good is being able to get to the bottom of things, to know how they work, it digs in and then breaks the picture into little puzzle pieces- the emotional world of the Virgo, like the Taurus Moon needs stability, but of a different kind. The Virgo Moon needs to know everything is in place, all its thoughts and emotions neatly ordered within. This is all good, but emotions are not very neat and orderly things and so the Virgo Moon is in a flux about itself. As a result Virgo Moon people are very self-critical, they are never perfect enough, good enough. They ask the impossible from their own hearts- to stay in place and play by the rules. But hearts don’t do that do they? Behind the deep thoughts and knowledge of every Virgo Moon is a truly vulnerable person. We all are vulnerable but the Virgo moon is so because in childhood dealing with their inner world became a difficult task. Instead many Virgo Moon kids found themselves doing things: competing and winning medals, dancing, cooking and even working. The Virgo Moon is always busy- and it likes to be. Most Virgo Moon’s you will meet have a mountain of knowledge inside their heads which they take for granted.  They are the learners, the smart ones. The Moon does symbolize the mother and so the mother figure or any important feminine figure in their lives was probably very pushy- pushing them to do more, be more instead of just being. Maybe the mother was a teacher or even worse a mother who never got a professional outlet and bestowed that on their kid.

Every Moon has a task to deal with- the Virgo Moon needs to let go of that teacher in their heads and of all that noise. That is the issue, the constant noise of the mind. As they grow up, the Virgo Moon’s learn to find a healthy outlet for that cluttered mind- usually in a professional frame. They make great researchers, writers and therapists. Some just sit and meditate all day or in bad cases escape into drugs- self-criticism is a problem. Virgo is ruled by Mercury- so one thing Moon in Virgo can develop is emotional intelligence. They learn and use what they learn to be emotionally smart. Another good aspect of the Virgo Moon is its ability to think things over; they would not jump into stupid impulsive conclusions about anything. They are usually soft spoken and clever people and loyal friends. Virgo also rules health- so emotional health may be something they care and know much about. I also noticed Virgo Moons can be good speakers, especially if they are teaching you about something- which they will. Sometimes, the Virgo Moon gets so warped up in analyzing things, it misses the whole point. So they need friends who can tell them they need to just let go, and enjoy. The Virgo Moon is sensual remember? So if given a chance they know how to have a good earthy fun- but only as long as it falls into their own set of rules. The rules are completely subjective, so you wouldn’t know what they are. One Virgo Moon I knew, would work all day, chattering and gossiping in between- he was a clean cut guy, the kind that never drinked or smoked in his life. But one day during a University lecture lunch he got very drunk, seemed to have a good time. Later I learned he did it only because it was University related – part of the rules. So don’t be surprised to meet a very wild Virgo Moon- behind that they are thinking things over, I promise you.

The Virgo Moon does have some trouble in love. They know what they want and don’t want- which is great. But sometimes the standards can seem completely irrational to other people. Like a girl I knew who would only date a guy who never wears shorts. A good partner for this Moon would be someone like a Pisces- who is more emotional and dreamy. Preferably with some small issue that the Virgo Moon can fix, but no big issues pleas- the Virgo Moon has way too many things keeping them busy and a messed up partner isn’t helpful.  I also see this Moon finds it easier in charts of Fire signs and harder with more earth signs in the chart. The Virgo Moon should develop a sense of spiritual place in the world, and try and see how they can make their dreams a practical reality- they are amazing at that. They should cultivate their natural emotional intelligence, which is a great gift and remember to have a little thought free fun.

Taking Care of Your Moon

moon

Your Moon sign, that mysterious living force within you. The moon just like the mind is always shifting for it is never in its full power and yet never defeated. Your inner emotional stability or lack of it, your secret dreams and hopes and your nightly trips to the fridge for a piece of cake; all fall under the magic spell of the Moon.

We all know how our home life shaped who we are today, but we don’t always ask how this knowledge can help us. I want to tell you the most important thing about your Moon placement: Learn to take care of it, nurture and love it. For even if it shows that you had a great mother and family life and were much loved, it will also show where the nurture you received wasn’t the best one for you. As adults we must learn to take care of our own needs and this includes our own homes. But the real home is within: the home of the soul, that place where you feel most safe and comforted. A Moon that isn’t accepted and well taken care of will result in many problems. This can be weight gain due to emotional eating, depression, mood swings and anger. This may sound like the domain of the Sign of Cancer and indeed it is, as this is the ruling sign of our Moon. The Moon is your shadow and it hates being repressed. Self-expression is the key for a healthy emotional life. The sign and house placement will tell you what the best way for you to feel good is.

I will be happy to answer individual questions about you Moon as there is much more to be said. Here I will outline a few simple guide lines that can help.

Fire sign Moon: Needs to be extroverted or it might as well not exist. The fire Moon craves exchange with others in order to be at peace. A lack of this exchange can lead to illness and emotional pain- which is really an extroverted form of loss. Creative pursuits that involve people are a good place to start.

Air sign Moon: Needs balance between the emotional and the intellectual. Exchanging ideas through media and conversation is common. If the voice of the Moon isn’t heard then it may become a confused mess inside the persons mind; causing many mental problems. The Moon needs to be kept interested and involved but also restrained and contained.

Earth sign Moon: Needs a stable space in life that doesn’t involve rapid emotional demands. A stressful environment is very difficult for this Moon to handle. It also needs to be surrounded by familiar things and habits. Balancing the new and old is important.

Water sign Moon: Needs time alone to regain energy and process emotions. Creative work that is done alone is best. Working with too many people can be emotionally draining. The intuition needs expression in daily life and must not be ignored.
