Moon Sign Personality Traits

Meaning of Astrological Moon Signs

Moon signs are both similar and different from sun signs. Sun signs are more vibrant and more easily presented in a person’s personality. Your moon sign is just as important, but they also show a slightly more hidden side of the person.

One way to look at the difference is too look at the time the sun and the moon are up. The sun gives light to every to everything during the day, it hides nothing and everyone is awake. The moon, on the other hand, is up during the night. Only certain people who are awake for long enough see things that can only be seen in the beams of light that come from the moon.

So the Sun Signs show things that everyone can see. The Moon Signs show things that harder to see or that are only shown to certain people through the subconscious.

How to Find My Moon Sign

Everyone has a single moon sign. To learn what your moon sign is, you can use this moon sign calculator. For this calculator to be accurate, you will need to know your date of birth, your time of birth, and the time zone you were born in.

If you do not know what time you were born at, one way to get a pretty close estimate is to use the calculator twice. On the first time, put your birth time at 12:01 a.m. This will give you one option. Then, reuse the calculator and put your birth time at 11:59 p.m. This will give you another estimate. Sometimes, you may get the same sign twice; in this case, that is your moon sign! If you get two different signs, simply try to guess which moon sign best fits your personality traits.
