The Irrational Moon

The Moon represents our deepest personal needs, our basic habits and reactions, and our unconscious.  Where the Sun acts, the Moon reacts.  The moon affects how we instinctively react or respond to problems.  The Moon is associated with the mother and with feminine energy in general.  The Moon is both our inner child and our inner mother.  It is responsive, receptive, and reflective.  The Moon is our spontaneous and instinctual reactions.  The moon gives us our animation.  It rules rhythmic ebb and flow of activity and energy.  It is a mediator between the inner world and the outer world.  While the Sun is rational, the Moon is irrational.  Habitual behaviors and prejudices are ruled by the Moon.  If your Moon is a water sign (Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces) the Moon will have a greater impact on your personality.

Things you know without thought – intuitions, hunches, instincts – are the products of the Moon. Your deepest self belongs to the Moon:  art, letters, creative work of any kind, sometimes love and interactions in relationships.  Whatever you feel is most deeply yourself, whether or not you are able to do anything about it in the outer world, is the product of your Moon.  Celebrate the power of your Moon and appreciate the insight you can derive from it.  If you feel the need, wear a pin or pendant of your Moon for stability.
