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 Libra is in a cardinal air sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Venus. So the Moon in Libra is more refined, social and gracious, but also perhaps a bit bland and vanilla. People with this placement tend to find comfort in avoiding confrontations and winning the approval of others. It can be greatly distressing to someone with Moon in Libra to be caught between two people they love who are at war with each other, and they may find themselves doing that balancing act more often than they’d like. While being friendly and charming is a potential result of this placement, there can also be the tendency to be too dependent on the approval of others. One cannot live by consensus. Sometimes this can be linked back to early experiences where exposure to violence and conflicts lead them to prioritize peace and live diplomatically.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Cancer or Libra 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.
