Love is complicated, but your moon sign can help you to see if the two of you are made for eachother. The moon represents your emotions and how you respond to others in relationships.
Your moon sign is determined by the position of the moon during your birth. To discover what the moon’s position was at the time, you can use this tool. If your signs aren’t complementary, but you're in a happy relationship anyway, you’re one of the (many!) cosmic exceptions. Just enjoy this match – it may not be in the stars, but it makes you happy, that's all that matters.
Note that every sign referred to is a moon sign (less well-known than the star sign): Aries is someone with a moon in Aries, etc.
The moon in Aries
You’re straightforward. You like to think fast, cut to the chase and you’re confident when you’re talking – whether it’s about painful emotions or groceries. You’re evidently a fire sign, and you fancy… someone with the same sign. Aries matches Aries, because they need someone who has the same ease and charisma. You guys communicate in a playful way, and you don’t have to fear the other person will overrule you. There can be a spark with a Leo, too, but Scorpions or Cancers are a no go.
The moon in Taurus
Taurus is known for being stubborn, especially when it comes to love. Luckily, love goddess Venus helps you. It would be nice if you could find another Taurus to enjoy the good things in life, but the two of you would probably clash. That’s why you’re a better match with someone who has a moon in Virgo or Capricorn. It’s wise to stay away from Libra – they find it hard to remain calm when they are teased.
The moon in Gemini
You’re not the kind of person for long, stable relationships and you tend to flutter from one objet d’amour to the other. The planet that’s most important to you –passionate and talkative Mercury– prefers a sign like Libra or Aquarius for you, because you can have great conversations with them. The moons of the more serious Capricorn and Scorpio offer more of a challenge for you. Dating Pisces can be tempting, because flirty combined with volatile is a great combination for a fling.
The moon in Cancer
You’re very in touch with your emotions. You know what you feel, you pay attention to other people’s feelings and love to talk about your spiritual world. With Pisces, you can have a dreamy relationship, and the more reserved Scorpio might be a good match too. Extrovert and loud Leo is probably too much for your sensitive personality.
The moon in Leo
You are the kind of person who loves perfection, and who would do anything to achieve it. You work hard, you love creating order out of chaos and you’re good at grabbing any chance that falls into your lap. You appreciate it if your partner recognizes that, and that’s why you’re a good match with action driven Aries or optimistic Sagittarius. Most important is that your partner is confident enough to keep up with you. That’s why stubborn Taurus and protective Scorpio are probably not the best choice for you.
The moon in Virgo
Did anyone say ‘self criticism’ and ‘analysis’? Those two words describe you in a relationship. You keep analyzing every situation and every conversation. You like perfection in relationships. A fellow Virgo or a down to earth Capricorn is a good match, but slackers like Aquarius and Sagittarius would clash with you.
The moon in Libra
The order of things, balance, that’s important to you. You’re a tactful partner, always looking for harmony. But you have an airy, creative side too. That’s why you’re a good match with Aquarius and Capricorn. Aries, however, might get you into trouble – they have a strong survival instinct that might make you want to escape.
The moon in Scorpio
There’s no sign as profound and reserved as Scorpio. You look for what’s below the surface and see details and little pieces of information that others miss entirely. Your partner might think twice before they pull a prank on you. An intimate Taurus or intelligent Virgo could be a good match, because they understand your ambition and drive. An independent Aquarius, however, might dislike your tendency to see through depths.
The moon in Sagittarius
You find joy and enthusiasm in almost everything you do, and you have a strong faith in everything related to the matters of the heart. Whoever gets into a relationship with you has to be open minded. Gemini or Aquarius, who have an optimistic outlook on relationships, might be a good match with you, but an overly sensitive Cancer or stubborn Taurus are not the best choice.
The moon in Capricorn
You’re always looking for the way up: you’re always climbing, always working hard to reach the best things. The strict planet Saturn reigns over your moon, and a serious Taurus or Virgo understand your ambition. A Cancer with a domestic side may help you to create a stable and disciplined home. Libra, however, will demand you to descend from your mountain, which might be a problem in the long run.
The moon in Aquarius
Calm, cool and collected, that’s what you are. You know how to approach situations in an independent way and you’re good at cooperating with a common goal. In a relationship, you’re a good match with someone spontaneous and courages. A Leo will challenge you to find your power and supports your individuality, but a stubborn Taurus or impatient Aries are less advisable.
The moon in Pisces
You’re a gentle hearted dreamer. In a relationship, you look for a person who’s less submissive than you are, which means a moon in Aries or Sagittarius isn’t a good idea. An intense Scorpio or efficient Virgo, however, can keep you down to earth.
