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 Sagittarius is in a mutable fire sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler, Jupiter. So the Moon in Sagittarius is more optimistic, adventurous, free-wheeling, at home on the road. People with this placement tend to find fulfillment in always being on a voyage, never being fenced in. There can also be the tendency to struggle with contentment, thinking the grass is always greener on the other side, that bigger and flashier are always better. Sometimes this roaming instinct can be linked back to early experiences where the opportunity to explore and see the broader world was encouraged or denied, or where one’s parents never set limits on what they could do, for better or worse. People with the Moon in Sagittarius seem to have a stroke of luck, and even in failure they move right on to the next bigger better brighter shinier thing.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Cancer or Sagittarius 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.
