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 Taurus is in a fixed earth sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler Venus. So the Moon in Taurus is more emotionally secure, luxurious, pleasant. People with this placement tend to be popular and attract the finer things in life, comfortable surroundings, good living. While fine tastes and styles is a potential result of this placement, laziness and indulgence is another. Sometimes this indulgent streak can be linked back to early experiences being coddled or spoiled. The Moon is exalted in Taurus due to being the most nocturnal sign in a nocturnal relationship to its home sign of Cancer, so lunar qualities of reflection, collection and absorption are supported and distinctly expressed.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Taurus or Cancer 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.
