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 Aries is in a cardinal fire sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler Mars. So the Moon in Aries is more emotionally volatile, quick-tempered, energetic, foolhardy, bored and impatient. People with this placement may throw themselves into risky situations based on their gut feeling rather than thinking things through first. While bravery and courage is a potential result of this placement, rashness and rudeness is another. Sometimes this competitive streak can be linked back to early experiences competing with others for attention.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Aries or Cancer Rising. If you were born at night you will tend to exhibit more of the positive qualities of this placement, 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.
