thanks for your comments...An aries moon is an ambitious placement. I don't always believe in the waning and waxing. I think sometimes Astrologers make it way too complicated. Thanks Rajan for votes and shares.

tebo from New Zealand on February 06, 2013:

I appear to be virgo moon like you, however I didn't know my birth time. Very interesting and if Mum knows my birth time I shall re check, but a lot of similarities.

Rajan Singh Jolly from From Mumbai, presently in Jalandhar, INDIA. on February 06, 2013:

Very interesting, Carol. My moon sign is Aries with a waning moon. I know I have a lot of energy and am strong in my beliefs. Just wondering if a waning moon makes for some mellowing of the qualities of this sign.

Voted up,interesting and shared.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 27, 2013:

Thank you fellow Astrologer. I am having run writing about astrology. However as we both know the moon sign with the sun sign tells a different story. Thank you for stopping in.. I appreciate the support.

Jean Bakula from New Jersey on January 26, 2013:

Hi Carol,

I'm so happy to see someone tackle Moonsigns. I've written about them here and on my blog, but people still are confused about Moonsigns VS Sunsigns. I get so many emails on Moonsign pieces that say, "Oh, everyone says that's me!" I tell them that only the very closest people who know their emotional makeup should know how their Moonsign really shows. Mine is Capricorn!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 26, 2013:

loveofnight. Thanks for dropping in and commenting. It is always appreciated.

Loveofnight Anderson from Baltimore, Maryland on January 26, 2013:

Interesting and useful, it appears that there is a lot more going on with astrology then meets the eye. On the surface it seems as if all you need is a zodiac sign but the reality of it goes a lot deeper for a more accurate reading. Definitely a good share,thanks.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

Today was just moon signs. Look at the calculator and figure out your moon sign to go with your libra sun sign. I am also a libra.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

Thank you so much and that made me feel really good!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

I always enjoy these articles. You have a real talent and can make many people feel good about themselves.

breakfastpop on January 25, 2013:

I love these hubs. I am an Aires, but that's all I know. Up interesting and awesome!

kidscrafts from Ottawa, Canada on January 25, 2013:

Thank you for your answer. I was born on October 14th... so it's about 2/3 of the sign. I have to search for the term "cusp" with astrology to understand it better. I am even not familiar with the equivalent term in French. So will learn something new again today :-)

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

Joan..Glad to hear that!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

thanks billy buc you do not have to be a believer..But I appreciate your coming by my astrology hubs.

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:

Actually when you are on cusp or what is referred to as the cusp..for example November 22..some say scorpio and some say sagittarius..reality is that changes every ten years or so..so that depends what year you were born. If the middle of the sign...there is probably little change.

Joan Whetzel on January 25, 2013:

This is so totally me.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 25, 2013:

I have a Pisces moon sign and the description was right on. That's pretty cool. I'm not sure I'm a believer but you have at least opened my eyes. Great hub!

kidscrafts from Ottawa, Canada on January 25, 2013:

I never can resist reading my horoscope. Once, I even went to have an horoscope reading and I was floored by what the lady told me ; to go there was huge step for me but I didn't regret it. She was right about something really fundamental in my life.

Anyway... I have a question for you. Star signs were created about 2,000 years ago by tracking the position of the sun in the sky each month. But I heard that with time the moon's gravitational pull has slowly moved the Earth in its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars' alignment. So if I follow that theory, I should look at the Scorpio instead of Libra. What is your view on that one-month bump. I just try to better understand the theory behind this.

Randi Benlulu from Mesa, AZ on January 25, 2013:

Carol, this is really good. Packed with so much interesting information! Up+ and sharing!

carol stanley (author) from Arizona on January 25, 2013:
