Aquarius Moon Sign Emotions

The Age of Aquarius


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 it's 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!

HI Lulu,

Yes, signs next to each other usually get along well. It's more of a friends as lovers thing more than a "love of your life" kind of romance though. Still, it has possibilities, all your planets are in different signs. Best of luck to you.

Hi, im a female Sun-picses/Moon-aquarius. I have fallen in love with an auqurias/Moon-pieces. I felt an instant attraction to him before Even talking to him. Now I am wondering if he felt the same :-) however, would the described combination of Pisces/Aquarius work?

Something is wrong with my comments, it mostly disappeared. Anyway, I checked and at the time you were 33, Saturn was going back and forth between Scorpio and Libra. So perhaps you were living the aftermath of the Return.

Since Scorpio is a square aspect to Aquarius, that can be what made you change and do something else. Some see squares as negative, but they can be catalysts. Usually in a Saturn Return, someone we love dies, or our lives are thrown into complete chaos, not of our making.

I think with all air signs in your trinity, you are very intelligent and have lots of great ideas. Fashion would be a great field for you. You are determined with the Aquarius in you, and Gemini's love of people will help you in your business. Best wishes to you.

I'm swamped this week, but if you go to maybe we can do a tarot reading to see what's going on with you. Best regards and thanks for reading my work. Take care.

Hi Kim,

At any time we can feel more like our Moon Sign or Ascendant than our Sun Sign, depending on what's happening in our lives, and what the 3 signs of our trinity rule.

Hi Jean,

I enjoyed your article on Aquarius Moon. My sun sign is Gemini, moon Aquarius and ascendant Aquarius. My birthday us June 1st 1983. I'm 33 this year but I feel like my Saturn return started happening last year up until now. So many changes in my business ans family life. I've also had a change in perspective and feel more Aquarius than Gemini in terms of how I create. (fashion designer) Any thoughts on Saturn return and birth combo?

Thank you

Hi sidhkant,

I am unsure if Aquarius is your Sun Sign or Moon Sign, all of your planets and the Moon are in signs of their own. I think Aquarius and Scorpio is an exciting combination, you won't agree about everything, but that would be boring, right? I know a lot of Scorpio and Aquarius couples. Best wishes to you both.

Thank you so much for your encouraging words, Sally! I've had such good results with Moonsigns, that I've begun a shorter series on them on my blog. They do matter so much.

I understand your plight, because I have Scorpio rising too, and a Capricorn Moon. It takes me long to get to know people, but once I do, my Venus and Mercury in Gemini make me very talkative and sociable. I just need time to warm up, like you.. Take care and thanks for writing in and commenting!

Hi, Jean. Like Marie, I had trouble with the "detached" tendencies of my Aquarius Moon when I was younger. People described me as stuck up or cold (perhaps due to Scorpio ascendent, Capricorn Sun & stellium, and/or perhaps because Jupiter is conjunct my Moon, magnifying it). IMO the Moon shows where we'll go when we feel insecure, and more than once, that Aquarius Moon played out in a way that left me feeling even more isolated and alien.

What a difference a little consciously awareness makes! With just a little effort, I can let people see my big, big heart (the upside of Jupiter conjunct Moon). And while my Cappy reserve and Scorpio rising continue to ensure only a handful of people ever really know me, I'm far more open than before. I've always been a good listener, but taking charge of my moon has helped me let go of previously judgmental tendencies and embrace the gift of compassion this moon placement offers.

Thanks for a terrific article. Please continue raising awareness of moon signs.

You may want to check out my Astrological Saturn Returns here on HP. They happen every 30 yrs. but I experienced my first one at 27, and have several suggestions that my 2nd one is beginning, as I'm 57, and going through a lot of obstacles right now. They can be opportunities though, always look at it that way.

I am 27 will turn 28, born October 30, 1984. Thank you for the explanation, Jean Bakula. I am stubborn and my own individual. Also I notice others find me "weird" as they say but over these few years I learned I am who I am and I love that now because I stand out. I do not like common things/people. Yes, with docile appearance, everyone who meets me (first impression) states " you are so nice, timid, or innocent" but I tell them, that is not what my family or friends who know me say, I am the opposite. The change is inevitable fits also, I am noticing constant changes usually small but they are impacts to me that I learn from or about, and use that within if necessary. Yes, I am great at organizing (but not neat), and a hard worker. Thanks you so much! Yes I will check out your blog. :)

Well you have a lot of planets in Scorpio, more than 3, that's called a stellium. With the Sun and Mercury there, you are very much your own person. Mercury rules how you think, and you are hard to sway, you have very strong opinions, and probably don't change them much. It is a psychic sign, so you can trust your instincts, they are strong. My son has 4 Scorpio planets, so I know he can be stubborn as a mule! But he likes structure and order in his life too, and with Mars and Jupiter in Caricorn, and Ascendant Cancer, family life, and security is very important to you. You are also probably very handy around the house, with an Aquarius moon people may think you are eccentric, but I like to think of it as you just go along being your own person, and don't worry so much about what others think. The Cancer Ascendant calms that down a bit, so you don't hit people over the head with your views, and you appear more docile than you are (you are not docile at all, ascendants are all about how you come off to those you don't know). Pluto rules transformation and all those Scorpio planets, so you will walk away from something if it's not what you want, and change is inevitable, something you know more than others. I don't know how old you are, but with water and earth signs, you have the potential to be much more patient as you get older. See, you are reserved at first because of the Cancer ascendant, then bolder, because Scorpio and Aquarius are fixed signs, and you won't pretend to be who you are not. I hope that helps. You know where to find me, and I write about Astrology on my blog too, the address is in my profile. Best of everything.

Hello. My birthday is October 30.

Some of my natal chart:

Sun/Mercury/Saturn/Pluto signs in Scorpio.

Moon sign Aquarius.

Ascendant sign Cancer.

Venus/Uranus/Neptune signs in Sagittarius.

Mars/Jupiter signs in Capricorn.

I am very much into astrology, I have been researching for some years years now. I am still learning, there is so much too learn but it is fun to me.

Your description of Aquarius Moon sign fits me, and reminded me of my childhood (taking things apart and putting it back together!). I enjoy jigsaw puzzles.

Anyway based on my listing above, what would you say about me? Romantically, I have had only two serious relationships in my life, one with a man which I had broke up with in less than year because I had to be honest with myself and him. I am attracted to women (lesbian) and I came out in 2008. And recently this summer 2012, I had my first girlfriend of two months but we broke up. I notice I am reserved but bold when I like a woman. But I always get put in the friendship zone with women, and I am learning gradually about having patience which is not my strong suit. So romantically, how am I also?

Thank you. :)

Hello again, Jean :D

Yes, I thought that too, that Peter had a Pisces moon. It would make a lot of sense or at least a Pisces rising? The imaginary world, which is very Piscean. Since it is about Jupiter/Neptune and Jupiter has no boundaries, goes beyond the reality, and Neptune = imagination. I like Linda Goodman's stuff too, it's just that it's not "enough" if she wants readers to tap into the imaginary and go beyond and see beyond her writing, her observations. Because, it's never enough.

Reincarnation is very plausible too. I have wondered about it but never really pursued reading much into it. But there is an inexplicable, yet invisible string that brings us to certain people. For example, even people who have the same birthdays as your parents, or placements and they are tied to you that is beyond any astrologer can put together or place on compatibility. It's stronger than any person can try to put together. Like the universe doing it's work.

Best wishes to you too!

Hi Jan,

I think that's a very astute observation. Most of the Disney stories are very anti-women, if you think about it. Peter Pan is my favorite one though. It is interesting, because Wendy's Aquarius moon makes her yearn for the imaginary, the different, the exciting, but it's fighting her Sun. I wonder if Peter had a Pisces moon? Sometimes we don't want to change our circumstances because of our current needs. I think that's why in the past few years I've been considering reincarnation more, as we seem to attract the same people. Linda Goodman's stuff is so good. I use her for some of my famous people info, but her books are old, from the 80's, so I can't get current info there. You can learn a lot from her. Best wishes.

Jan 4 years ago

Hi Jean,

Aquarius moon, I have been trying to study each moon sign and its relatonships with others (via biographies, celebrities, and their history with their partners ect)

Upon reading some of Linda Goodman's intro on Gemini- Peter Pan, because of his "never want to grow up" boyishness and goes to an imaginary world (she never mentioned what moon sign Peter is in), she wrote how Wendy had a Cancer Sun, but owned an "Aquarius Moon," I found that interesting because in the end, she wanted "home, family, security" = her sun, but her Moon "Distanced" herself from her true love = Peter.

Isn't that interesting? She could never go back there again, because her Sun needs security, yet her love is strong = distancing again looking at the faraway star that is Neverland.

What do you think?

Hello Marie,

Not to worry, there's nothing wrong with you! Air sign moons like Aquarius are more ruled by their heads. This is a good thing at times. There is probably something else in your horoscope that shows the best way to let your feelings out. Don't hold them in too much, if you push them too far away, it may be to hard to reach them. But don't beat yourself up for not being overly dramatic. Take care, Jean

Marie 4 years ago

Thank you for this, it is helpful to learn about my moon in Aquarius and I've always felt there was something wrong with me but now I see that I was meant to be this way and I'm not alone. Especially about not being overly attached to others or overly emotional.. I've always felt like there must really be something wrong with me, that I don't cry so easily, etc. Although I do feel, and when I allow myself to feel, it can be all to painful, so it's best to save the feelings for another day, when I can no longer push them to the side....

Hello Au fait,

Thanks for your kind comments. Yes, I meant that Aquarius Moon people want to be different than the norm. Other signs do too, but particularly this one. Your Daughter may be Libra with an Aquarius Moon or Ascendant. I usually have a link to a table of moon sign positions near the beginning of the hub, if you want to check out some Moonsigns for those you know. Take care, and I have written a lot of Astrology on my blog too. Jean

OMG! Except for the reference to tattoos, goth clothing, and orange hair, you have me pegged at least 99%!! I couldn't believe it. It was like you were talking specifically about me! I was born on the cusp on Feb. 18.

I usually avoid astrology, numerology, palm reading, the occult, etc., though when I was younger I took an interest in them. I do have some psychic abilities, but they run in my family. I don't think they are related to these other areas -- occult, astrology, etc.

The Goth thing, and purple hair, is my daughter and she is a libra. She only dyes her hair different colors temporarily for certain occasions. So maybe you mainly mean that we just like to dress different and be different from the norm? You touched on that anyway, and you are right. I like being different, but so does my daughter who is a libra.

Anyway, I find this hub is truly amazing because it hits almost 100% on how I am. Other people no doubt have some of the same things you write about here, but I have practically every characteristic you write about here. Uncanny.

Voted you up, interesting, and awesome!

Hello alexandre,

I'm sorry to get back to you so late, I didn't get a notification of your post. My husband has Venus in Pisces, and after 38 years, has never said a harsh word to me. So I'm sure your sensitive and romantic attitude will really add to this relationship. Since you both have Earth sign suns, two practical and stable people work well together, as a long term love means lots of compromise about the little things. Saturn moves slowly, it takes 30 yrs to travel through all the Zodiac signs. So this oppostion shouldn't hurt you. They are slight differences, such as viewing something from the other side, but not enough to cause you issues. Saturn is the karmic planet. I never worked on Karmic Astrology, but am reading about it now, and hope to be putting out some pieces so we can see if we were with our present loves before. If you want a horoscope cast, you may email me and if I know your expectations, and we can agree on a price, I can do some work for you, thru PayPal. Check out my blog, it's URL is on my profile. Thanks for writing.

I think it does help that you both have Sag ascendants. This means you have the same sign on the cusp of all 12 houses, so have similar views about the important issues in life-- looks, money, neighbors, siblings, homelife, love, work, partnerships, money you share, education, career, friends, and secrets. She has trouble expressing her feelings with Venus in Capricorn, but they are very deep. She craves security more than she lets on, and is practical. It may even give her a more "Fatherly" vibe, she may be the one who seems to want to take care of you, though you are nurturing with the Pisces moon. Your Venus in Sag means you also want to be a friend to everyone, and being a Scorpio with a Pisces moon, that bit of fire energy is good with her Aquarius moon. It's sounding more positive. I find many long distance relationships from people who write to me on Hubpages, I guess it comes with the territory, since it's a large site and people from so many countries write here. Good luck. I've seen long distance loves work out.

thanks a lot Jean Bakula for summarizing it. Yes, I am the more emotional one (and I know how emotional I am when it comes to my Sun/moon combination). I don't know if this helps, we both have Sagittarius ascendant, while she has her venus in Capricorn and I have mine in Sagittarius.

On a side note, it is also a long distance and a different culture relationship. I am Indian while she is Swiss and she is quite younger than me. She always used to say that she missed me tons and I am a true friend and so on. I know it will be extremely hard for me to stay without talking to her till she makes the next move, but I think she is worth that sacrifice :)

Jean Bakula 4 years ago from New Jersey Author

Hello karthikkash,

My husband and I both have Scorpio Ascendants, so I understand the dynamic. It's as you say, the attraction is there and you have similar attitudes about the major things in life. Scorpio and Aquarius are both fixed signs, Scorpio water, and Aquarius air. Since the moon is Aquarius, she seems less emotional from you, and she does need more distance. Your Pisces moon makes you the more emotional one, and you are going to be the more expressive one. Signs next to each other are usually good. Don't push too hard, give her some time. Maybe even be less available, let her come to you and make the next move, if you can, since you've been friends. I am trying out some new software for Astrology on my blog. If I decide to use it, I can do compatibility (they call them synergy charts). But to cast a whole chart you need the birth time and place, and I'd have to charge, so it's a big step for me. In the meantime, she might just need time. Fixed signs don't like change, and to go beyond being friends may take her some getting used to. An Aquarius moon person does things in their own way, and doesn't really care what others think. My Mother in law was Scorpio with an Aquarius moon, and it was impossible to change her mind about anything, so don't push too hard, accept that. Let me know how it's going. Take care.

thanks for this hub :) It gave me more information about Aquarius moon sign people. Could you please tell me what would be a girl with Sun Scorpio and moon sign Aquarius would be? I recently asked a girl out with this combination and she said she needs some time to think about it. I myself am a Scorpio. I have heard that it is easy for two Scorpios to get attracted and it has been true. We became instant friends and have been close friends for some time. But considering her moon sign is Aquarius and mine is Pisces, I am confused how it may go. I recently pushed her a bit to give her decision and she said that she needs some distance. I am really not sure how she may react. If you could give me some insight about the combination, that would be helpful.

By the voted up for this hub :)
