Aquarius Moon Sign People

One of my heroes, Henry David Thoreau, once said, "Each man hears the beat of a different drummer, and must step to the music he hears." I am sure he would not mind if I update his famous quote to include women too. Especially Aquarius moon women and men. These are our friends that have those endearing (and sometimes not so endearing) eccentric traits. They have very strong likes and dislikes. They are independent and unconventional souls who do what they think is best and do not especially care if you approve of their actions or not.

But they grow on you, and you begin to respect the fact that they do not follow trends, and that they stay true to themselves. Since their Moon is in that erratic and unpredictable Aquarius sign, these people experience many sudden and unexpected changes in their lives. Another reason is that Uranus, the Planet of Lightning is their ruler. They are strong-willed people who can roll with that. And when the changes are hard ones—like deaths or divorces—you will respect the grace and sensibility with which they handle what life deals out to them. It could be easy to label someone who changes so much as flaky, but since you cannot categorize an Aquarian, you would be wasting your time and opinion. They have their own view of the world, and nobody will persuade them otherwise. Life would be such a bore without them!

Aquarius Moon Sign Personality Traits

Aquarian moon sign people are air signs, and thus are very intelligent. They have many interests, and knowledge in many areas. They are the original DIY kind of people, they do not need help, thank you! They do have a humanitarian side, and are often leaders of groups to feed the hungry, or to raise money for a worthwhile cause. It is not their leadership abilities that surprise other people, but the kindness and hard work an Aquarian moon person will put into any kind of project to benefit the less fortunate. They often do volunteer work, and care about groups of people a great deal. They like people in a detached sort of way. So that's why you will find them off fighting for causes, yet not letting too many people get close to them personally.

Most Aquarius moon sign people are quite friendly and agreeable, in an impersonal kind of way. They have kind hearts, and really do listen when others speak. Just don't tread on their personal space and you will get along fine. I realize they may seem hard to understand, but once you get down these few basics, you will find you have a very smart, well read and interesting friend who is worth the time you put in to get to know them better.

Aquarius moon sign people get bored easily, so make sudden changes in life that a faint-hearted person would not consider. Marriage does not really suit their independent spirit, unless they find a soul mate who understands their need for autonomy and realizes this is a person they cannot hover over, no matter how much they love them. They are perfectly capable people and know what they want and what they are doing. An Aquarian moon will not put up with a situation not to their liking for too long. Either you toe the line and shape up, or you will no longer be welcome in their life! They do not waste time on lost causes.

Aquarius moon sign people are usually interested in things that others might find unusual. I know one who is a mortician by trade. She thinks gory stories about autopsies interest others as much as they interest her, which results in some awkward moments. You can often hear them talking about something strange at a party, and others are trying to get away or are rolling their eyes. But they do not want to be like everyone else, and do not understand why others cannot see that.

Aquarius moon sign people are very inventive and love to take things apart to see if they can put them back together. They like science and have mechanical abilities. The women know how to fix their own cars or motorcycles. They most likely have a few tattoos as well. Their way of dressing will also be different. Say, it's 2016, and the Aquarius moon person you have your eye on likes to dress in clothes from the 1950's. They just like to be their own person, and you have to go with that. Although they grow up to be very productive members of society, they will always dress or act a bit differently than the average person. And that's fine, because they will never be "average." Why be average when you can be original? That's what makes them so much fun to be with when you go out. Aquarians like to go to concerts and shows, and like to have a good time. They really are a positive addition to any group.

A Fixed Sign Who Can Cope With Change

Aquarius is a fixed sign, which normally makes its natives resistant to change. It is more complicated in the case of an Aquarius moon sign person. Their basic outlook on life will stay pretty much the same. But their Uranus ruler will cause chaos and upheaval in their lives, and so they will have to deal with more change than the other fixed signs, Taurus, Leo and Scorpio. Add in their low tolerance for boredom and bright and curious minds, and you have a person who is much more open to change than their other fixed partners in the zodiac. This is what makes them such great conversationalists, and so open-minded about the way other people live.

When somebody is discussing their problems, and the Aquarian has had that experience, they do empathize. They will offer suggestions and advice. But chances are that the Aquarian moon was able to pick themselves up faster and get life back on track much more quickly. Why waste time on something that is not worth the trouble? The world is an interesting place with places to go, people to see. Aquarian moon sign people have a practical side that they do not normally let out too much. But they do make quick decisions once they have all the facts. They are also interested in occult subjects, and have psychic abilities. Since they are so independent, you will often find them as owners of their own businesses. And it will not be a mainstream business.

They will own a store that sells mostly organic and vegetarian products. Aquarian moon sign people put much thought into whatever they put in or on their bodies. Perhaps they make their own line of body creams and cosmetics, or practice some kind of natural healing, or own a metaphysical store. Whatever they decide to do, their brilliant minds and commitment to the task at hand will make it a success. And you will be delighted to stop and chat once in a while to catch up with whatever is going on in their lives. Whatever it is, it sure will not be boring!

Questions & Answers

Question: I am a Libra sun, Leo moon, Sagittarius rising. What type of people are good for me? What type are not? What is my overall persona?

Answer: Libras are independent and care a lot about balance in life. It's the sign on the marriage house, so you like to do things in partnerships, and hope to be half of one some day, being a romantic. It's an air sign, so you are intelligent and curious. You are ruled by Venus, and don't like to argue, you are the peacemaker in the group.

The Leo Moon represents your emotions. You are generous and loving. You have great friends and will do anything for them. You love to be in the spotlight, and in a love relationship demand attention. But you attract attention too. Leos are fixed about what they feel unless they learn otherwise. You are romantic and want someone to fuss over you. But you will do the same for them.

Sag rising is the way you appear. You are probably tall. Sag people are easygoing and accepting of others. You like travel and may be interested in different cultures, or an art from one.. Sag rules education, law, and philosophy. You are talkative and generally have strong ideas.

So having air and fire signs in your trinity, you will get along with other air signs, Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. I like Gemini because having Sag rising, it's on the cusp of your marriage house. Aries could be a good choice. I think earth and water signs would bore you. But be aware this is only a trinity, all of the planets in your zodiac chart are in a sign and one of 12 houses. So there's a lot of info I don't have here.

Question: I'm Taurus Sun, Aquarius Moon and Leo Rising. What type of person I am, and with what kind of person I'm most compatible with?

Answer: All three parts of your Trinity are fixed signs, so you are very persistent and stubborn. You need to accept that others may not share your views. Taurus Sun means you are kind and gentle, and will go out of your way to help others. You love the outdoors, and don't speak unless you have something important to say. The Aquarius Moon means you run hot and cold in romance. You do care a lot about people, but in a detached sort of way. You need freedom in a relationship. Leo rising is the way others see you. So that's generous and warm, and a good host who likes to go out and have fun.

As far as compatibility, you need to be with someone who can stand up to your rigid idea that it's your way or the highway. This is a hard one, as Taurus is Earth, Aquarius is Air, and Leo is Fire. Unless you have other planets in Earth signs, I would say another air sign, like Gemini or Libra, or Fire signs, like Aries or Sagittarius.

Question: Can you do a profile for a Leo sun, Aquarius moon and Taurus ascendant?

Answer: Leo Sun people are fun and optimistic. They have a strong presence when they enter a room. They like a lot of attention and have fixed ways of doing things. But Leo is a star, and also very generous and loving.

The Aquarius Moon rules your emotions, and this means you need some distance from others. It can be confusing for others in a love affair with you. You run sort of hot and cold, and need freedom. But you are a humanitarian and care deeply about people.

Taurus rising is the way others see you. So that's kind, gentle, quiet unless you have something important to say. Taurus is ruled by Venus, so you give off a sexy vibe. You are reliable and sensible.

This is called your Trinity, but is nowhere near what a whole astrological profile is. Just so you know. Also, all three of these signs are fixed, so you are stubborn and slow to change. The Leo and Taurus in you may make it easier for you to settle down in love.

Question: I have a Taurus sun, Pisces moon and Aquarius rising. What do you think of me?

Answer: Taurus Sun people are easygoing and kind. What's not to like? They don't have bad tempers. They are sensual and enjoy the good life, good food, good clothes, good sex, good wine. Taurus is an Earth sign, so you are sensible and most likely a hard worker. You won't want to own the company, but are a respected member of it. The Pisces Moon rules your emotions, so you are very tender and fragile, and will do anything to help others in need. You must be careful that you don't let others take advantage of your kind nature. You are emotional and very accepting of others. You can have psychic ability, especially if you take the time to develop it. I bet you love shoes, since Pisces rules the feet. Buy good ones, as your feet are your weak spot too! You can read other people very well.

Aquarius rising is the facade you put on for others. You try hard to be different, or perhaps it comes naturally, though, for a Taurus Sun, you probably aren't too outrageous. You are intelligent and well informed. You have many interests and get bored easily (so does the Pisces in you). These are all astrology signs which work well together.

This is called the Trinity in astrology, the Sun, Moon, and Ascendant of a person. It's a good starting point, but I can't tell much more without a Natal Birth Chart. I am currently trying to figure out why people seem reluctant to get one. All of your planets are in an astrology sign, and one of twelve houses. All of the planets are in aspects to each other, and this is where the real info is in a chart, because a reader can see what areas of life matter more to you and why. But I hope the Trinity explanation helps you.

Question: I´m a Scorpion sun, Aquarius ascendant, Libra moon, what can you tell me about that?

Answer: Scorpios are very strong-willed and independent. They can be blunt but are also loyal friends and caring family members. This is a water sign, and emotional, so you probably go to extremes in your feelings, and likes and dislikes. Aquarius is the way you seem before others get to know you well and is a fixed sign like Scorpio. So you do have a stubborn streak. But you like people and have a philanthropic side. You like to get attention by acting in unconventional ways, so being a Scorpio too, are probably a handful to get along with. The Libra Moon rules your emotions, so you want to be part of a couple. You try to examine your feelings and look at them from all sides. Libra is ruled by Venus, so this is a calming influence in your Trinity. You don't like to argue, preferring to be peaceful when you look for solutions to problems.

Question: I'm a Pisces Sun,Aquarius Moon, and Gemini rising. What kind of person am I?

Answer: Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac, so it's the most spiritual one. You are kind to all kinds of people, creative, artistic, and a free thinker. The Aquarius Moon rules emotions, so you run sort of hot and cold. You can feel in love with someone, then forget about them for days. You need a lot of space in a relationship. Gemini rising is the way others see you. So you seem and are intelligent and have the answers to all the questions people have. Geminis are good writers and communicators,.and you get bored fast. I think with the Gemini imagination and Pisces Sun, you would be a great painter or writer.

Question: My partner has Gemini sun, Aquarius moon and Taurus Venus. What does that say as far as personality, love and family relations?

Answer: Gemini Sun people are intelligent and get bored easily. They are interesting and know a lot about many things. They are logical and ruled by their head, not their hearts. They are good communicators. The Aquarius Moon represents the emotions. This is a person who runs a bit hot and cold about love and needs space in a relationship. But they have unique ideas and ways of looking at the world, so life is never dull when around them. This is not a person who wants to hang out with family and watch TV every night; this is a person who wants to go out and trip the lights fantastic. If you are a real homebody, I don't know if this can work.

The Venus in Taurus is loyal and loving, and the most family-oriented part I see here. This gives reliability and a sensible aspect of the relationship. It's also a romantic Venus. Plus the person could have other sides, all of their planets were in a zodiac sign at the time of birth. So there's more I don't know here than what I know. All of these questions on this group site require a whole casting of a Natal Birth Chart, but I can't ask for them to pay for one from here, although I do have my site. Without a whole chart, this is such a little bit of info, but I am doing what I can with what I have. I hope this answered a little. Take care.

Question: I've read 2 of the questions that might fit me as well, but I still don't know how my sun in Taurus, moon in Aquarius and Scorpio rising all work together. I already know I'm stubborn, but sometimes I feel trapped in life in general. Gemini Venus, Aries Mars, Taurus Mercury and a bunch of other planets. Maybe I'll get a reading one day that will clarify these things more. How should I interpret my moon signs as they relate to my emotions?

Answer: It would really benefit you to get a whole astrological chart done. I have been interpreting Trinities, but they are a small part of what a real Natal Birth Chart is. It's important though, and I usually begin there when I interpret. An astrology chart is good for your whole lifetime. You can get transits done anytime to understand what's going on in life at a particular time. It upsets me that people think interpreting a few planets in signs is that meaningful when it's just the tip of the iceberg. That "bunch of other planets" can completely change what I interpret here. All of the planets are in houses, the distance apart from each other matters, it's just getting so disheartening for me. Plus I've written articles on Venus in Gemini and Mercury in Taurus, along with all Sun and Moon signs. I can't answer your main question just by interpreting a few planets in zodiac signs that you hand-picked. Astrology doesn't work that way. For this kind of question, I don't have the right information.

Question: I am a Cancer sun with Aquarius moon. What kind of person am I?

Answer: You are very changeable and a nonconformist. Cancer Sun people are kind and emotional, as their ruler, the Moon, travels through all 12 zodiac signs every 28 days. Cancers are creative, psychic, nurturing, family oriented people. But this doesn't mean they are to be pictured with a broom in one hand and a mop in the other. Home matters to them, it's their refuge, but that doesn't mean they spend all their time cleaning. They love to entertain and family can be their group of closest friends. Cancers are goal oriented, even if they seem to stay in the background. They emerge when it's a topic they know about. They are generally easy to get along with and don't like confrontations. Think of how the Crab moves sideways and backwards. Cancers do that too!

The Aquarius Moon rules your emotions. You need time to yourself being Cancer, and bringing Aquarius into the mix, want to be independent. You may not want to be tied down to tightly. Or you may like an unconventional relationship, like a long distance one. You care about people and will get involved in philanthropic activities or charity work. You have strong opinions, and have to learn others won't always agree with you. Plus you hold grudges being a Cancer, so you need to work on that.

All in all, you are comfortable in your own skin and accept yourself for who you are. There's a lot to be said for that. Keep on being yourself!

Question: Can you please explain the personality of a Scorpio sun, Aquarius moon, and Taurus rising person?

Answer: This is one stubborn person, as all three of these zodiac signs are fixed signs. Good luck getting your way! Scorpio Sun people are strong, capable, loyal, sensual and normally accomplish their goals. They always seem to know where they are going and what they want. They can read you like a book and are very psychic and creative, often knowing what will happen before it does. This is an intense person.

Aquarius moon people are a little detached emotionally. They love everyone, but may not pay attention to you as much as you would like. This is a non-conformist who plays by their own rules. But they are fun and quirky, and this is the sign here that will change most often. Because it's about their emotions, you may never know what to expect. An Aquarius moon needs freedom, but Scorpio and Taurus are more settled, so this person isn't as complicated as it would seem.

Taurus rising is the facade or public face they wear. This is practical, gentle, quiet or just talkative when they really have something to say. Taurus is a gentle sign, and this person won't judge others. They
