Astrologers consider the Moon to be just as important as the sun through its different phases, waxing and waning in appearance in an unchanging cycle. The moon is said to represent the feeling nature of individuals, associated with their memories, moods, subconscious habits and emotional make-up. The moon represents receptivity and vulnerability, having a mysterious and influential power over us. The moon orbits the earth in 28 days, with each star-sign embraced for approximately 2.33 days. The phase of the moon at the time of birth is particularly significant to individuals, with four individual phases.

Those born in the first quarter of the moon (1-7.5 days) are likely to be enthusiastic, optimistic and youthful with the sign of Aeries influencing their nature. They enjoy taking the initiative, particularly in romance, and finding opportunities to express their interests. Those born in the first phase may have the inclination to be selfish and to overreact. These people are likely to find success early in life due to their strong drive and motivation.

People born in the second quarter (7.5 -15 days) are ambitious, sociable and charismatic with the zodiac signs Cancer and Leo influencing their nature strongly. Others will find themselves drawn to these people and they will enjoy the limelight. Those born in the second quarter enjoy attention, high status and have the motivation to achieve something that will have them remembered by others. Although they are slow to anger, if enraged the consequence will be intense.

Individuals born in the third quarter (15-22.5 days) are sensitive, intuitive and emotional. The Zodiac signs Libra and Scorpio have an underlying influence, particularly through their observant nature. These people treasure friendships and relationships, able to relate to others particularly will. They find themselves attracted to highly successful people who are able to help them achieve their goals. They have the tendency to be quite tense and nervous, resulting in a short attention span. The most successful phase of their life will be in the middle years.

Those that are born in the fourth quarter (22.5-29 days) are similar to the Zodiac signs of Capricorn and Pisces, being organized, insightful and intuitive – following hunches rather than logic. They are likely to find themselves a bit too emotional, becoming oversensitive upset by the demands of others. They are seen as slow to develop and grow but will find unusual and individual success later on in their life.

For many, particularly those born under water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), the Moon has a much more powerful affect over us than the Sun. It represents our deepest personal needs and for true happiness in life it is important to find a balance with our moon. Our moon is able to influence our imagination, intuition and allow us to be sentimental, adaptable and protective, but can also cause restlessness, irrationality and moodiness.

The moon is associated with health issues related to the digestive system, ovaries, stomach, breasts, menstruation, pancreas and the genitals.
