As the Earth revolves around the Sun, so does the Moon revolve around the Earth. While our Sun sign tells us what “season” of the year we come from, our Moon sign and its relationship to the Sun tells us what “time of the month” we come from. The Moon’s phases pulse with the tides, like breathing in and out, like a flower opening and closing. While the Sun rules the day representing our outward expression and visible public lives, the Moon rules the night, representing our inner private lives, where we absorb and reflect our inherited circumstances and surroundings: our habits, instincts, emotions, patterns, comforts, our bodies, our origins, our mothers.
The Moon in Aquarius is in a fixed air sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Saturn. So the Moon in Aquarius is more serious, detached and rational. People with this placement can sometimes stand out for their quirkiness and unconventional attention they attract, even when they’re just trying to fit in or go about their business. While this position is stereotyped to make someone insensitive, cold or an emotional robot, this can also be good for staying neutral and untangling bias and emotion from the facts of a matter. Sometimes this can be linked back to early experiences where detachment was the only way to avoid the pain of rejection and lack of emotional comfort.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Cancer or Aquarius Rising. If you were born at night you will tend to exhibit more of the positive qualities of this placement, and potentially more than your Sun sign. If you were born during the day you will tend to exhibit more of the difficulties associated with this placement and identify more with your Sun sign.
