What does your moon sign mean?

Contrary to what many people believe, astrology is actually a very complex science. The basic premise of astrology is that all the large bodies in our solar system had an impact on us at the moment of our birth. The precise combination of placements is what made us who we are. Some bodies have a more direct and powerful affect while others are more subtle or generational in nature. When most people think of astrology, they think of Sun signs. While your Sun sign placement is important, it dictates who you are on a conscious level. The placement of the Moon, on the other hand, is the foundation for your subconscious personality.

Is my moon sign important?

Astrologers tend to fall into one of two camps as to the importance of your Moon Sign. Some astrologers believe that your Ascendant, or Rising Sign, takes second place in your chart hierarchy. Having studied astrology for about 30 years I fall into the second camp that believes that your Moon Sign is second in command so to speak. In fact, I would go so far as to say that your Moon Sign is of equal importance to your Sun Sign. While your Rising Sign may be important in business relationships, your Moon Sign is far more important to who you are deep down inside. Your Moon sign, therefore. affects all your relationships.

How does my Moon SIgn work with my Sun Sign?

All the planets in your chart interact with each other to form your personality and your Moon Sign is no exception. You can think of your Moon Sign as the other half of your core personality. Your Moon sign can balance your personality, create conflict or strengthen your Sun Sign characteristics. Let me give you a few personal examples:

My Son - Sun Sign Virgo with Moon in Scorpio. His Virgo Sun makes he very easy-going on the outside. He appears very practical, logical and unemotional. He is funny and not easily angered. For the few that know him well though, the Scorpio Moon is definitely a powerful part of his personality. While not easily angered, if you push him too far he will fight back with a vengeance. While not something he expresses to most people, he is deeply loyal and fiercely protective of his family. He is in college at the moment and plans to join the F.B.I. when he gets out. With his Virgo logic and calm head and his Scorpio intensity and need to investigate, it's the perfect job for him.

My Daughter - Sun Sign Cancer with Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn and Cancer are polar signs. That means that they are compatible and share some of the same characteristics. My daughter has the moodiness of both Cancer and Capricorn unfortunately! She also apparently got Capricorn's ambitiousness and ability to handle money which is a good thing. I many ways she got double doses of her core personality traits and therefore her personality can lack balance. The positive side of that is that you always know where she stands - no ambiguity in her!

My husband and myself - He is a Sun Sign Scorpio and I am Sun Sign Pisces and we both have our Moons in Gemini. All I can say is thank God for the Gemini Moons! Gemini is an air sign and greatly helps to balance out the emotions of Scorpio and Pisces. The Gemini logic can conflict with the Pisces or the Scorpio emotions at times but as a rule it creates a much needed balance. It is also a very communicative sign which helps us both express our watery emotions.

How can I find out what my Moon Sign is?

The moon changes signs every two and a half days. Therefore, it is important that you use a program that takes into account your actual time of birth or consult an astrologer to determine your Moon Sign. There are many programs available on the Internet to choose from. One that I have used can be found at

PLEASE NOTE: As you can see by the comments section, I am happy to respond to comments, and do so as quickly as possible. I do not, however, have the time to look up chart placements. If you have a question, please provide me with the placement of at least your Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars to facilitate a response. If you need to check where they are in your chart, click here . This is a truly free chart calculation. Although I do not always agree with their computer generated readings, their chart calculations are fairly accurate. Thanks!


Leah on May 10, 2015:

Can you help analyze me? I'm Cancer sun, Libra rising, Taurus Moon

Sayitall on April 19, 2015:

okay do me do me!!! I'm a 6% Capricorn sun, 19% Scorpio rising, 27%Virgo moon. What does that make me!!?? Should I check mostly my rising sign or moon sign for general horoscopes? I probably should be in the FBI according to some of my ex boyfriends haaaaaaaaaaaa!!

luke roberts on April 22, 2014:

my rise is libra as well

Luke roberts on April 05, 2014:

My sun is taurus and my moon is pisces what is the mix of that come out to if you dont mind explaining please

Sk94 on September 18, 2013:

I am a sagittarius sun/scorpio moon/virgo ascendant/scorpio venus/leo mars

I am really emotional and really intense but i require distance and freedom at the same time.. Pride is one of the reasons i hide my feelings... I appear cold on the surface but really sensitive on the inside! I sometimes feel like im more scorpio but i do have the sagg traits of wanting freedom and too much display of affection makes me feel frustrated lol

leigia67 (author) on May 08, 2013:

Michelle: Interesting...You appear very unemotional but your emotions brew under the surface. You have a very big heart and care deeply for others. You need to find an outlet for also care about doing the right thing and have a deep sense of justice and fairness. Although you might make a good lawyer, you will not be happy in that profession...unless you work for the ACLU or something similar. You need a cause...find that and them worry about what role you will play within the organization/cause.

Michelle on May 08, 2013:

I love your post.

Can you please tell me something about my personality and what kind of career path will suit me?

Thank You!

Chloe on March 24, 2013:

Hi there!

I would be super curious appreciate to hear what you think how my signs add up.

Gemini sun, Leo moon, Gemini mercury, Aries venus, Leo mars, Sagittarius rising

Thank you!

summer on March 22, 2013:


ive been dabbling in astrology for sun sign is aries and moon sign is aquariuous, yet for some reason i dont follow any traits in both categories....ive always beenmore of a there any reason for any of this

i was born 24 march 1987 8:30 pm in Medina in saudi...

leigia67 (author) on February 27, 2013:

Nadia ...interesting combo :) Your Aq Moon will seriously temper the Cancer emotions, making you more level headed and less emotional. It is somewhat of a double dose of humanitarianism though. You likely spend a considerable amoiunt of time worrying about people you love and the world as a whole. You definitely need to choose a caring/nuturing/philanthropic career. On a personal level, try someone with Gemini strong in his/her chart.

Nadia on February 27, 2013:

Hi leigia67,

I enjoyed reading your explanation of Moon signs. I liked your approach, so I thought I'd ask: how should I, being a Sun Cancer, read my Aquarius Moon? I think these aspects are difficult together. Besides I have Leo rising, and Aquarius being the opposite to Leo, one would think it gets even more complicated.

Well, that's it for now.

Thanks in advance. (:

Castle on December 07, 2012:

Thank you. Do you need the house positions and aspects to get a more accurate picture?

leigia67 (author) on December 07, 2012:

It makes your Moon sign more of a focal point which is why I said it will balance out all of that Libra :)

Castle on December 07, 2012:

Thank you. Does the fact that my moon is conjunct my sun change anything?

leigia67 (author) on December 07, 2012:

Castle...well the good news is that some of the Libran indecisiveness will be tempered by your Virgo Moon. You are a deep thinker, very concerned with justice and equality but also down to earth. You likely put those concerns to use in a practical, instead of fanatical, way....Lawyer? A career focsued on helping children maybe? Mercury in retro often means that you will not really realize your full potential until older than most people...those lobran traits may be slow in blooming.

Castle on December 07, 2012:

Forgot to mention that my mercury is retrograde

Michelle H. on October 15, 2012:

Thank you! I can see now that my daughter needs space. While she is quite the affectionate one, and loves cuddling, I notice that especially when approaching something new, she wants to go off on her own. She does not need much in the way of hand-holding. She likes her independent time, and gets frustrated when limits are placed, and there isn't a good explanation. They say you can't reason with a two-year old, but she seems to understand when I explain that I can't let her touch this or do that for safety reasons, etc. This is one fearless child. My son on the other hand, could cuddle all day long, and is much more passive at this age than she was at six months old.

leigia67 (author) on October 15, 2012:

Michelle: Based on what you provide, I would guess that the Pisces in Rising and Moon in Aquarius are responsible for what you interpret as "aloof". Pisces (being one myself) need alone time and we don't do groups well. Aquarius's are just plain independent by nature. Between the two I am not surprised your daughter prefers to try new things by herself first. Just give her some space and lots of encouragement (Pisces crave that ) and she will be fine. BTW, she will be a VERY creative little girl eventually given those placements. Your son will be easier for you to relate to as he has both his Sun and Moon in a fire sign. You two should be very similar, but he may be a little less mature (and I don't mean bc of his age I mean astrologically).

Michelle H. on October 15, 2012:


Could you tell me more about my children, who are two years old and six months old, and I am trying to figure out their personalities...especially my daughter. She and I are both Leos sun signs, and for the most part, I understand her, but she can be a little aloof sometimes. Mostly when my husband and I are trying show her how to do something new, that may be complex. When we do art projects for instance. She'll sometimes act like she isn't interested in what we are/the way we are showing her, and will later go on to do things her own way. Aloofness is definitely not a Leo trait.

My Daughter:

Sun - Leo, Rising - Pisces, Moon - Aquarius

and my Son:

Sun - Aries, Rising - Scorpio, Moon - Leo

I am: Sun - Leo, Rising - Capricorn, Moon - Saggitarius

Michelle on October 09, 2012:

I love your post.

Can you please tell me something about my personality and what kind of career path will suit me?

Thank You

cherry on August 11, 2012:

What can you tell me about my chart? who am I compatable with? will I be succesful in my life? and scorpio is also in my uranus? Thanks

cherry on August 11, 2012:

Thanks for your reply, but you even mentioned that scorpio was a powerful sign, yet nothing powerful about a cancer. People have told me that I was very strong and loyal, until I am betrayed...but many people see cancers as a weak sign. It's horrible to be a cancer.

leigia67 (author) on August 09, 2012:

Cherry..You only have your Moon and Rising in Scorpio. Your Rising sign applies to superficial, business level relationships. Your Moon, however, is an important part of your personality. You will exhibit Scorpio traits as well as Cancer traits. I'm sorry you hate being a Cancer, but we are who we are. You sensitivity and holding grudges applies to both Scorpio and Cancer traits. There is no "worst" or "weakest" sign...they all have strengths and weaknesses. My daughter is a Cancer and she is one of the strongest women I have ever known. Granted, she is moody, but strong and the most loyal person I have ever known. Just play to your strengths and don't try to change who you are.

cherry on August 08, 2012:

I hate being a cancer, isn't cancer a cardinal sign? whatever that means.and what is the main difference between a caner and scorpio. I hate being a cancer. It seems like the worst sign? are we the worst and weakness sign?

cherry on August 08, 2012:

I am extremely sensitive, and feel things immensely and intensely. Once I'm hurt I usually never forget it or have very ill feelings towards the person. I hold gruges and have been know to be vindictive, but it's a sneaky vindictive. Why am I not a scorpio? I love them. What traits am I missing from them?

cherry on August 08, 2012:

What does my chart tell you? Please explain.

cherry on August 08, 2012:

I still don't understand my chart. Since I have so many scorpio do I have many of the same traits?is cancer not a powerful sign? and what do I need to know about being scorpio moon and rising. Does my chart have anything good with it?

leigia67 (author) on August 05, 2012:

Roadrunner: You need something that uses your investigative skills and your deep interest in all things philosophical. Religion, law, philosophy, the military, foreign affairs are all areas of interest for you. You will likely pursue a higher degree in your chosen field. A professor of any of the above would be likely.

Jaime: You have quite a mix...all four elements in your first five planets. This can lead to internal confusion or can make you very balanced...your age may make a difference as to which of these is the case. You love home and family, but are also very cerebral and are concerned about humanity. Your Moon sign makes you independent and less likely to marry young, but your Venus sign says you very much need to be in a relationship.

Cherry: Both Cancer and Scorpio influence who you are. Scorpio, however, is a very powerful sign and will have a powerful influence on you as your moon sign. The simple fact that you don't like being a Cancer shows me your Cancer traits :)

cherry on July 29, 2012:

Can you tell me what My chart means? I am a cancer sun at 03 degree, a scorpio rising at 18 degree, 19 degree scorpio moon, 24 degree cancer in mercury, 18 gemini in venus, 21 virgo in mars, 05 virgo jupiter, 21 virgo saturn, and 22 scorpio uranus. I have no idea what this means, I've done lots of research and can't figure it out. Also I have always been fascinated, jealous, and love scorpios. I hate being a cancer. Am I a nice scorpio? Please let me know.

cherry on July 29, 2012:

My sun sign is cancer, my rising and moon signs are both scorpios. before having my chart done I've always had a fascination with scorpios. What does it mean for me? Am I underneath it all a scorpio?

Jaime on July 28, 2012:

Can you tell me what my chart tells you? Sun in Taurus, Moon in Aquarius, mercury in Aries, Venus in Pisces, Mars in Taurus.

Roadrunner on July 24, 2012:

Thank you, it's amazing how much your chart can tell you what your like. Do you know any more suitable career paths for me?

leigia67 (author) on July 24, 2012:

Emma: Sun Scorpio/Moon Sag. is a water/fire combination. In general, that means you will have some significant internal conflict. The rest of your chart would tell me more. Fire and water don't mix, but it can also give you perspective. I will say you likely have some very deep emotions as well as are a deep thinker in general.

Roadrunner: See above. In addition, with Venus and Mars also in Sag., you will be a bit more confident and secure in relationships than many Scorpios. It also adds passion--not that a Scorpio needs any more of that! You are a very deep thinker and may become obsessive about things that interest you, including people.

Cathy: Interesting chart. Earth Sun, Fire Moon and Air Venus...that can create balance or disharmony. If you are young, you probably feel conflict. If you are older, you may havelearned how to intergrate the various elements. In are very independent. Career...very ambitious. Your partner and you are fairly compatible. Your Suns and Moons work well together; however, his Venus in Scorpio will make him MUCH more needy in a reltionship whereas you NEED your freedom.

cathyd on July 24, 2012:

Love your post. I am a female with a capricorn sun, aries moon, virgo rising, sag mars, cap mercury, and aquarius venus

My lover is a male with a sag sun, cancer moon, libra rising, libra mars, sag mercury, and scorpio venus

Can you tell me of we are compatible and what careers better suit me. Sorry I know I'm asking for a lot but can you also tell me about my personality based on my chart? Please and thank you

Roadrunner on July 23, 2012:

Can you tellme what my chart tells you?

Sun in Scorpio. Moon in Sagittarius. Rising in Taurus. Mercury in Scorpio. Venus in Sagittarius. Mars in Sagittarius. Jupiter in Aquarius. Saturn in Aries. Uranus in Aquarius. Neptune in Capricorn. Pluto in Sagittarius. N Node in Virgo.

emma on July 23, 2012:

What would a sun in Scorpio and a moon in Sagittarius mean?

leigia67 (author) on July 16, 2012:

AB: I really need your Venus and Mars signs...especially to give you a reading on your sex life. Just based on your Suns and Moons, I would say you are fairly compatible. Your Moons sign will give you a deep understanding of each other while your Sun signs will keep you from being too alike. You are the more outgoing of the two. Your partner is more focused and driven/ambitious, but you can apprecaite those qualities.

ab on July 16, 2012:

hello sir my sun sign is gemini and moon sign is libra.. my partners sun sign is capricon and moon sign is libra.. can u explain our relationship and sexual life?

Alexandre on July 07, 2012:

Thank you very much for your response.

If it's ok to you and i'm not asking too much, would you please tell me how we are individually? I'd appreciate it very much.

Thank you

leigia67 (author) on July 07, 2012:

Alexandre: Actually, you are fairly compatable overall. Your Pisces in Venus with his in Aries may be a bit of an issue, but his other placements will temper the natural tendency of Venus in Aries to be a bit immature and slow to commit.

Alexandre on July 07, 2012:


I'm "capricorn-sun, aquarius-moon, taurus-rising, pisces-venus, virgo-mars" and I'm in relationship with a "taurus-sun, taurus-moon, pisces-rising, aries-venus, taurus-mars" guy. what can you say about our relationship and compatibility? Can my aquarius-moon and his aries-venus make our relationship too unbalanced?

Thank you.

Kim on June 16, 2012:

gemini on May 31, 2012:

Emililyrose on May 17, 2012:

Also my daughter and I are best friends; I am

Sun Sign Libria / Moon Virgo / Mercury Virgo / Venus Libra / Mars Libra

How can this work? ( she does not like Libra Men or Virgo Men lol

She seems to be very difficult lol

Emililyrose on May 17, 2012:

Oh man! that really stinks lol not sure what to do. They have been best friends for three years and then it seemed that they were really liking each other and all of a sudden he started to insult her and ignore her. He always seems to look at her when they are in the same room. Also every guy she has ever liked has been Aquarius this one though really pulled on her heart strings. Who would be good for her? She gets so frustrated with other signs for one reason or another . She told me that she loved his mind and his goals. Just not his cold shoulder... Why is she so pulled to him? When I showed her what you said she said " are you sure there is No Way" ( she doesn't know if she can just let him go) I want her to be happy.

leigia67 (author) on May 17, 2012:

Emily...sorry to say that their charts are not compatible. I have seen many Scorpio/Aq. couples...I think the initial attraction is really because of the old "opposites attract" they don't last. Aquarius is known for being very independent and they often do not commit until late in life whereas Scorpio needs commitment and canot understand the "loner" outlook that Aquarius often has. Aquarius does not express emotion easily yet Scorpio requires constant reassurance and emotional expression. Their Moon signs don't help nor do their other placements. Sorry :(

Emililyrose on May 17, 2012:

Just in case you need them here is their mars signs

Hers Mars Sagittarius

His Mars Aquarius

Emililyrose on May 17, 2012:

Hi I was wondering about my daughter and the boy she really likes but frustrates her

Hers /Scorpio Sun / Aries Moon / murcery Scorpio / Venus Sagittarius

His /Aquarius Sun /Capricorn Moon / murcery Pisces / Venus Aquarius

They are so pulled to each other but he seems to fight it or at least he seems off and on

What would you say about them as a couple

Audrey on April 27, 2012:

Ok cool thank you Leigia.

leigia67 (author) on April 27, 2012:

Audrey: A Virgo Sun can be compatible, but it can also be too much of the same. Often, we feel a natural kinship with someone who shares the same Sun sign, but eventually our own weaknesses and negative traits seem to glare out at us from someone who shares our same Sun sign and that can just be too much. In your case, I would suggest someone with a Taurus Sun or Moon. You also have a heavy fire influence so someone with Leo or Sag. in their Sun, Moon or Venus may also work well.

Audrey on April 27, 2012:

Hi again I was just wondering what signs for a relation ship go best with my chart? Is virgo sun compatable with virgo sun?

Sun is in 26 Degrees Virgo

Moon is in 07 Degrees Sagittarius

Rising Sign is in 04 Degrees Taurus

Mercury is in 23 Degrees Virgo

Venus is in 12 Degrees Leo

Mars is in 05 Degrees Leo

Jupiter is in 08 Degrees Capricorn

Saturn is in 04 Degrees Aries

Uranus is in 00 Degrees Aquarius

Neptune is in 25 Degrees Capricorn

Pluto is in 00 Degrees Sagittarius

N. Node is in 08 Degrees Libra

leigia67 (author) on April 27, 2012:

SagScorp: You are correct that Scorps love a mystery (which is why they do well with we Pisces -- We can't even figure ourselves out lol) and they do LOVE sex, but by far the most important thing to a Scorp. is loyalty -- not just sexual but in all areas of the relationship. If your Scorp. feels that you are loyal to him, he is very unlikely to cheat despite their reputations. They are INTENSELY loyal themselves and deman it of partners. If he feels betrayed though, he will turn on you in a split second and you have probably lost him for good.

Bernadette: There is more than one way to cast a chart. The Moon changes signs every 2 1/2 days meaning that it is often the hardest to get right in a chart. If you have your exact birth place and time right, then the alabe calculation should be correct.

Bernadette G. Conley on April 27, 2012:

According to my Vedic Astrology Birth Chart, my moon sign is Cancer. However, my Astrolabe Birth Chart says my moon is in Leo. So which one is my moon sign? My Sun is in Taurus and my Rising Sign is Virgo.

Sagscorp on April 27, 2012:

Leigia, thanks for your analysis!

Yes, sometimes I do wonder if it is my scorp venus that makes me long for a special connection with someone, cause sags don't usually care about such things isn't it?

So far my scorp seems to be the only one able to fulfill my very demanding criteria of being affectionate yet not clingy, strong but not overbearing.

But I've read some other articles that mentioned scorps may find sags not so much of a mystery... and I'm afraid that it will lead to scorps eventually cheating on sags when they no longer find the mental stimulation?

leigia67 (author) on April 27, 2012:

SagScorp.: Interesting. Your Suns are fire and water which would normally make me say NO, but you do have some other indications of potential compatibility. Your Venus signs will help considerably. Your Moons signs are not perfect together but not horrible either. You may feel as though he stifles your fiery nature so you need to watch that, but then he may also ground you if he doesn't get too carried away :) You will have mental interests in common as well which helps. Sometimes I can give a definite "yes" or "no" but on this one I have to say "maybe". Good luck!

sagscorp on April 27, 2012:

Hi leigia,

Are these 2 combination of signs compatible? Thanks!


Sun Sagittarius

leigia67 (author) on April 25, 2012:

vanda: You are not dim :)...just new to this. Just as the Sun was in a particular constellation at the time of your birth, so were the Moon, Mercury, Venus and all the other bodies in a specific constellation at the time of your birth. I usually refer people to (see above link) to do a quick chart because it is truly free. I don't always agree with their generic computerized readings, but the chart if fairly accurate and its free.

Independent: No, your signs are not in conflict. On the contrary, having Sun/Moon compatibility is often a good start to a relationship.

Independentesha on April 25, 2012:

Hi leigia I have a question... My sun sign is libra my moon sign is Leo my boyfriends sun sign is Leo and his moon sign is libra, what do you think about this match, are the sun signs and moon signs in conflict with each other, thanks in advance

vanda ward on April 23, 2012:

...hello,don't know if i'm a bit on the dim side but i still do not understand what it means to have the moon in a particular sign...I was born in liverpoolon december 13th 1963 so that makes me a sagittarian because the sun is in that sign then...but what about the moon?..many thanks,vanda ;)

sheena on April 21, 2012:

looool, yeah so trueee

we are both so suspicious, and picks up on every detail of something. sometimes i hate the fact that i never trust anything and jealous as hell, he is the same if not more.

i will say something and he will read into it and get his mind twisted and i will read into his twisted words and read into it and so on and on... lately i feel like my head is gonna explode!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! but then i have been with different people wouldn't trade him for life. the fact is that we are both stuck but cant admit it. and we basically stalk each other looolll. its been a year since we broke up, but we cant, wont or just plain dont want to let the other person go. just cant admit it!!!!!!!!! so annoying, i like having my mysteries side and hide everything and so does he!!!!!!!!!!!! he probably gets so much joy out of our fights!! .... became tired just by writing this, what a sign to be and what sign and person to fall in love with... i feel like i have became detective whan i am around him, and its actually only around him i become like that....

leigia67 (author) on April 19, 2012:

Sheena: Having been married to two Scorpios and involved for a long time with a third, I consider myself somewhat of an expert and yes, your signs are absolutely the explanation for your situation. Read this:

Two Scorps together is unlikely to work...its just too much suspicion and intensity. You really need a much more easy going sign to balance you out. Of course you will feel a natural pull toward eachother, but that doesn't mean its healthy or has staying power. But if its strong enough, goback and find out -- astrology doesn't decide everything :)

Oliver: If you are reading a generic daily horoscope, only read your sun sign. If you are trying to get a big picture reading then yes, read all you other signs as well.

curious on April 19, 2012:

to add:

even though true marriage statistics says otherwise, i personally think that it's not to deter other signs from any sign they choose to be with. it's very much like a soul journey. which means, that even you had mentioned your scorpio husband with gemini moon had married that libra that he divorced...perhaps it was a soul journey for him and that it was one of the roads which leads his way to you. perhaps, he'd have never met you or had met someone else if he hadn't gotten with that libran, ect. these things exist for a reason.

i think you are a very intelligent human being and just wanted to put in my 2c; your article brought out something passionate in me.

curious on April 19, 2012:

thank you for your comment, leigia67

i was afraid you'd take my quick and rash comment (though honestly said) the wrong way.

i was refering to the the fact that astrology doesn't dictate in truth, true soul compatibility. but you've already hit it on the nail.

you should read up on the true marriage statistics. it is true that pisces/scorpio are most common.

whilst to be honest, the rest of the zodiac refers to same sign marriages and they truly dont care for same element marriages of other signs. for example, pisces/pisces aren't popular nor do they have many marriages of this, and same with scorpio/scorpio, yet, cancer/cancer is very common.

odd isn't it? and then there's libra/libra and taurus/libra and those are the most common marriages. weirdly, astrologically, the venus connection is what is the key thing here. aries/aries are much more common than aries with other fire signs, infact, they dont really get with leo or sags. leos on the other hand are most common with leo/leo partnerships but if it's a leo female, they will most often be with aqua males (their opposite) while the aqua female doesn't find leo males all that. all those true marriage statistics are so very notable and finding something other than what 'astrologers' are supposed to say isn't true.

If I know my3signs, sun gemini, moon leo, rising libra, when I check my daily horoscope can I read ones for gemini leo and libra and combine them for an overall layered picture, or is that not how to read horoscopes? Thanks!

kyla on April 17, 2012:

this has got me all wondering im pretty new at this and was wondering what my sun and moon for 25 of feb

Sheena on April 17, 2012:

hi leigia,

what is th usual compatibility between

two sun scorpios?

i have leo moon and he has libra moon.

i have scorpio mercury he has sag

i have virgo venus, he has scorpio venus

i have scorpio mars, he has gemini mars

we broke up about a year ago, he was going through difficult times and withdrew, his ex kept bugging him and when i found out his ex was still in contact with him i broke things off. it was the hardest break up i had to endure.

we probably met 3 times since then including one last night. never really talked about getting back together. but we still accept we love each other. we both get basically hypnotized when we are together. we just cant seem to get over each other. i mean its like been a year already since things ended. i want us to be together again but we are both secretive its so annoying. we never say what we want straightforward. WE JUST READ EACH OTHERS MIND. he knows what i am thinking without me having to say it on everyday basis. i am able to read pretty much anyone but i just cant seem to read what he wants or in his head. loool so as usual, we have talked mind games all night last night, and when we parted he said see u. i didn't say anything not even see you but just smiled.

do you think our actions might have anything to do with our chart? soooo confused.

Curious, I cannot follow much of what you wrote, but I will add that I do not steer anyone toward aything. I simply answer questions. People should always follow their own destiny. Astrology is just one tool among many.

curious on April 14, 2012:

...i wanted to add, from my last post, is that even if you get someone with a supposedly "compatible' sign that doesn't guarantee anything either. they could have a terrible love life or the one they wanted originally was the one that would have given them "growth"....or give them happiness. whichever. and so many just want to appease through the compatibilty of signs when if you FEEL for someone, just have the guts and do it, and if you fail, it's okay because that is life. at least, the experience, the journey was what was good and rewarding. something came out of it.

curious on April 14, 2012:

i started reading your hub and i noticed you keep steering people from supposedly "incompatible" signs whether it's sun /moon ect when they were, ORIGINALLY, in love or really liking someone who is supposedly incompatible in the first place. how does one just automatically just listen to someone online to dictate how they should LOVE someone because they should be compatible with that certain sign. it is like they cannot decide for themselves and just daringly do it. if it works, then it works, if it doesn't, then it doestn't...that is the game of life. nothing is ever sure, and why would you want that?

cool..thank you Leigia and i think the creative streak is very true right now i am writing a book so i guess that would be the creative streak or something

leigia67 (author) on March 26, 2012:

Audrey: On a surface level you are very practical, down to earth and in control; however, you have some fiery emotions lurking just below the surface. You also have a very creative streak that needs expression.

Audrey on March 24, 2012:

Lilly of the valley on March 17, 2012:

Thanks liegia,yes my mercury sign is sagittarius ,my neptune is sagittarius ,venus is libra,mars is libra,uranus is libra,saturn is gemini,Jupitor caricorn and yes i feel the constant battle in my head all the time very few moments of peace any suggestions.

leigia67 (author) on March 16, 2012:

Asia: I do not personally focus on rising signs except as they relate to career or business relationsips. Your Scorpio Sun makes you very intense, suscipious, possessive and curious as well as loyal and driven. The Virgo Moon will give your Scorpio Sun some balance and practicality. It will also provide direction for the Scorpio intensity. Please refer to the link above if you wish to check your other placements and feel free to return to ask about them as well.

Asia on March 16, 2012:

I am a Scorpio sun sign, Virgo moon, and Aquarius rising. my info Oct 29th 1986, 2:10pm Queens, ny. What can you tell me about that.

leigia67 (author) on March 15, 2012:

Sophia: Men with Mars in Scorpio are generally attracted to anything that offers the possibility of sex lol. Although your Mars in Leo would be particularly attractive, although not a good long term combination. As for Venus in Scorpio men, your Venus in Virgo would be a calming influence for their Venus in Scorpio, and your Moon in Scorpio may also be a draw as you mention.

Sophia on March 14, 2012:

Thanks Leigia!

Unfortunately other than my son, I don't know any Pisces men. I'll keep that in mind though...:)

How important is having the same Mercury in a relationship. The guy I'm smitten with, we both share Libra Mercury and I feel like we could talk about anything. I'm Libra sun and he's Libra rising. Other than that all our other planets don't mesh well as you stated (him scorpio sun, venus and mars). Should I give up?

And why are men with Scorpio Venus and Mars always attracted to me. Could it be my Scorpio Moon?

Thanks Leigia - great site btw...

leigia67 (author) on March 13, 2012:

Lily: Scorpio and Libra are basically very different signs. Scorpio sees the world as black and white while Libra has to balance everything in a constant search for what is fair and just. Having both as your Sun and Moon can be exhausting. I'm curious though where Mercury is in your chart as that governs how we think and is always within one sign of your Sun, meaning it could be in Scorpio or Libra (or Sag.) Do you know?

Brick: People differ on how much improtance they place on rising signs...I simply find it relevant to a business, or superficial, view of your personality. If you think Cancer's don't have a temper, you are mistaken. They also have a slow burn temper that explodes. The difference between them and a Taurus is that the Taurus temper is easy to understand and follow whereas the Cancer comes out of know where and appears to have no logical reason (Cancer is the baby of the water signs and does not yet know how to handle emotions, yet is very emotional). Cancer is very strong when it is your Moon sign as it governs the Moon.

BrickStacker on March 12, 2012:

Perhaps the effect of the rising signs differs depending on how strong the sun is in a particular sign? For example, I read that the Sun is at its weakest in my sign of Aquarius. It naturally prefers Leo. I say this because my Taurus Rising plays an essential role in how I view myself. After I read the "Everything You Need To Know About Astrology" book, I said aha! My trinity as I call it sums me up well. I am somewhat opinionated and rebellious like Aquarius, very sensitive and indirect (at times) like a Cancer (my moon sign) but like a Taurus, sensual, conservative, obstinate, very slow to anger ( but merciless when pushed to the limit), Of course Cancer and Taurus share many traits so if one thought the Rising Sign was not important, they could explain my Taurus traits by pointing to Cancer. But having read descriptions of the signs, I rarely read of Cancer having a temper under the calm exterior. Moody or brooding yes, but unlikely to lash out. I could look to my Mars sign, but it is in Pisces, albeit 29 degrees (prob doesn't matter). Pisces and temper don't really go hand in hand though. But perhaps with Mars being in Pisces, it represents anger that tends to build? I'm a pretty kind easy-going person but I have been known to "hulk out" after much prodding. So I would be interested in knowing what in my chart could explain that pattern other than Taurus.

Other positions:

merc. in aqu.

venus in aries

sat. in scorp.

jup. in cap.

uran. in sag. (generational)

nep. in cap. (generational)

pluto in scorp. (generational)

Lilly of the valley on March 10, 2012:

Hi leigia,my chart is

Rising Aries,sun sign Scorpio,moon sign Libra

What are my traits ,does it explain why i'm always mentally exhausted

Alexia on March 08, 2012:

Hey :)Cool blog

leigia67 (author) on March 08, 2012:

Sophia, I would like for a Pisces influence in Sun, Moon or Venus bc it goes well with your Scorpio Moon as well as your Venus in Virgo. Gemini MIGHT also work well as a Sun or Moon sign. Taurus could work in Venus or possibly Moon.

Sophia on March 08, 2012:


Thanks so much! Pretty accurate description of me. Who would my best match be in regards to their Moon, Venus and/or Mars.

Thanks again!

leigia67 (author) on March 07, 2012:

Sophia...interesting combinations. Your Sun and Moon signs are in conflict to some degree. Libra is almost obsessed with balancing right and wrong, often to the point of not committing to decisions as a result, whereas Scorpio sees the world in black and white and never has a problem offering and opinion or committing to a point of view. If the two can find a balance, it is a great combination for anything in the legal field (lawyer, cop, private investigator or anything that requires investigating or research). Your Venus in Virgo along with your Sun and Moon signs indiactes a deep need to be in a meaningful relationship. You don't like to be alone but have high expectations of a partner. You harbor very deep, but hidden, emotions that other people typically don't see.

Sophia on March 05, 2012:


My sun is Libra - moon in scorpio, mercury libra, venus Virgo and Mars in Leo ... can u please tell me more about my character? Thanks :)

Ferlyn on March 03, 2012:

Thanks leigia! ='3 that's me haha

leigia67 (author) on March 03, 2012:

Ferlyn: You are a deep thinker. You walk to the beat of your own drum...people may find your ideas odd, only to realize years later that you were way ahead of your time. Your are a humanitarian and are concerned about justice and fairness on a global scale. I could see you joining the Peace Corp or becoming involved in an international humanitarian effort. You dig deep looking for answers, are very philosophical and are always concerned with what the "right" thing is to do.

Ferlyn on March 03, 2012:


My sun is aquarius, moon in libra, mars in aries, venus in saggitarius, mercury in aquarius and scorpio rising.. can u please tell me more about my charecters? Thanks =']

leigia67 (author) on February 29, 2012:

Shelly...First, your rising sign isn't the best indicator of physical traits. More importantly, what one person thinks is "pretty", another person may not. Different signs exhibit different traits that may be considered attractive. Pisces is known to be the most feminine but a Leo female can be very sexy and an Aquarius female very unique and elusive, for example.

shelly on February 29, 2012:

hey leigia which rising girls are the prettiest ?

leigia67 (author) on February 28, 2012:

Jessie: If you have a relationship, you don't "just stop contacting" each other for no reason. Given his chart, my best guess is that you did something that hurt him and he can't express his feelings. Ask him :)

Amy: Nothing is "bad" in astrology...just presents different challenges. You have a lot of emotion there...I do hope for your sake that you have some earth or air that balances it all out :)

Amy on February 26, 2012:

I am a Pisces sun, Pisces moon and Pisces rising! I suspect that it is not a very good thing.

Jessie on February 25, 2012:

Hello leigia

I wonder if u could answer some questions for me. Me and my bf sort of stopper contacting and its been about 3 weeks. we were so in love but out of blue we just both kind of disappeared. I have tried texting and he does answer and he texted me hi how are u and i replied back fine u, i love him so much and miss him dearly but i just couldn't say anything anymore lol strange. and i texted him during the holiday saying happy holidays and he texted back with you too, where have u been . I said busy with holiday and no reply or answer lol. i might have said something to displease but nothing seriouz that i could recall. i hope our chart helps me to understand what unknown emotion might be going on...

His sun cancer mine scorpio

His moon scorpio mine libra

His mercury leo mine saggitarius

His venus cancer mine scorpio

His mars taurus mine libra

I really hope u could shed some light on what i should do and if there is any hope left or what might be going through his head ... And i knu he loved me probably more than i did but ...
