Aries Moon Sign People

The zodiac sign the Earth's Moon was in at your time of birth tells the story about your emotional makeup. It is one of the pieces of the astrological "Trinity" of Sun sign, Moon sign, and Ascendant, which are important keys in telling who you are, and what you are like. Your individual moon sign tells how you feel, how you express feelings, or perhaps how you may hold them in. It describes what is important to you, what makes you feel both safe and insecure. It can also reveal your greatest emotional strengths and weaknesses. Your moon sign is the part of you that is not apparent to others--only those who know you best see many of these traits in you. Or only people you let in enough to see them.

It takes the moon approximately 28 1/2 days to make a complete trip through all 12 signs of the zodiac.. To find what sign your moon was in on your birthday you need an ephemeris, the book that contains the information on what sign each planet and our moon was in on a given date, or a moon sign book which is published every year by Llewellyn Publications. This gem includes much wisdom regarding subjects and areas affected by the moon. Information will be provided on how to locate these books if you never had a formal horoscope cast by an astrologer.

So don't you want to find out what YOUR Moonsign is? It's so easy to do that!

Aries Moon Sign People Traits

Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, Aries moon sign people have a sort of “me first” attitude towards life. They do not mean to be self centered, but are outgoing souls who do not quite understand why everyone does not feel the way they do on a particular topic. They may treat a group of friends to dinner, and order for everyone at the table. Why wouldn’t everyone want whatever the Aries person likes? They also tend to believe that their emotional wounds or joys are much greater or harder to bear than anyone else’s are. They are the babies of the zodiac, and are immature until they grow or learn better ways to handle the expressions of their emotions in a better way.

When Aries moon sign people are happy, they take everyone along for the ride. But when they are sad or overwhelmed they have trouble expressing the enormity of all they feel. They are not especially emotionally "deep" people. You need to draw them out and try to make them understand that it is normal to feel very upset or angry in certain situations, such as illness or deaths. Even when older they may exhibit behaviors where they refuse to do something that would benefit them greatly, and feel that they are proving a positive point. Actually they are hurting themselves, but are unable to see that, thinking it’s the other person they are spiting. Aries moon sign people really do not care to get too deeply involved in other people’s problems. They believe they have enough on their plates. They are not cold people, they just like to mind their own business.

Aries Moon People are Optimists

Now, I may have sounded a little harsh about Aries moon sign people, and I feel guilty. My husband had an Aries moon, and he was very affectionate. He often blurt out the most backhanded compliments which really melted my heart. He would tell me how pretty I looked when I was wearing my Bob Marley T-shirt with the holes in it. Or that I reminded him of the Empress card in the tarot when I would wearing a long sleeved, flannel nightgown. But since they say what is on their minds, it's honest, and comes across as very endearing. Aries moon people also have their own, unique take on emotional matters. So although it may seem like they don't care, they really do. They just want to do something about it, rather than to sit around chatting or whining about whatever the issue is.

Aries Moon Sign People are Leaders

Aries people like to feel in control, so are usually the leaders of a group. Since they have sunny and warm dispositions, others are normally happy to follow. They have a pioneering spirit, and have a unique way of expressing their feelings and ideas. So it comes as a great surprise that many of them actually suffer from slight inferiority complexes. It seems impossible, as Aries moon sign people are always very knowledgeable about any topic of interest—well, at least for the amount of time it holds an interest for them.

They move fast from one thing to another! Aries moon sign people like to try new hobbies and activities often. They know facts and display so much information on the topic at hand, it obscures the reality that they are afraid you may see them as a failure or that you may know more about a subject than they do. So the next time your Aries moon sign friend is getting long-winded with obscure facts, keep in mind they do it so that you will not see their insecurity. They need more emotional “stroking” and reassurance than other signs, sometimes seeming “high maintenance". All they really want is a hug, or for you to give them some indication that you care.

A Mars, Aries Full Moon


Assertive in Love

Aries moon sign people are very demonstrative and romantic in love, and they make enthusiastic partners. They are a tad jealous, so will hold your hand, hug you a lot, and keep close to you in public to make sure it’s obvious that you are “theirs.” They are very devoted, but also deep down they are afraid of losing you to someone else. Once you have established yourselves as a couple by living together or getting engaged, they will be much less attentive, and may withdraw more into their own selves. This does not mean they will be unavailable emotionally, just a little less available.

If you are a person who needs more attention from a lover, this is a topic that you will need to discuss and get out into the open. Thankfully, Aries people are straightforward and will talk about relationship issues fairly easily. They may not realize they left you sitting alone at a party where you did not know anyone. Or that they never introduced you. So you need to remind them what you need or expect from your social life together.

They are very generous, and will often shower you with gifts and flowers, whatever they know you like. Fiery moon signs are very charming, and difficult to resist! Aries moon sign people also have a way with children, as they are lots of fun and like to think of ways to keep little ones happy. They are very proud of their loved ones and like to show you off to others. It’s just that they can get distracted very easily. Aries moon sign people are kind, and do not realize their actions can make others feel like they don’t care. If you are a touchy person, Aries moon sign people are not the best partners for you.

Watch that Aries Anger!


Aries Moon Sign People Never Follow!

Those with Aries moon signs are leaders, not followers, and will gain great satisfaction by being self-reliant and independent in their career and life choices. They are not people who take kindly to being ordered around by anyone, and want to call the shots themselves. They often own their own businesses, or work at a company or in a situation where they do not have to answer to anyone too much.

This works well because they are active, and have very inventive and original ways of approaching problems and other dilemmas that may come up in the course of life. They will happily stride off onto a path of their own making, and have a good chance of being successful at whatever endeavors they decide to pursue. It is important that they vent all that fire energy. So if you know something is bothering them, make sure you ask questions about it. Aries moon sign people will bask in your attention, and be very happy that you care enough about them to ask! All they really want is to know for sure how important they are to you and the ones that surround them the most. And isn't that really true of most people?

Questions & Answers

  • I'm a Leo Sun with a Pisces Moon, and he's a Scorpio Sun with an Aries Moon. Is this a compatible combination? Everything I read about Scorpio Sun/Aries Moon makes him out to sound like a narcissist, but he seems very kind.

    Aries Moon people are a little bit immature, but they can also be very original and inventive, are great problem solvers, and fun to be with when you go out. Scorpios are serious, determined, driven, sexy, and passionate. I like the Aries Moon with the Leo Sun, and your Pisces Moon is sensitive and creative. You are probably a bit psychic, and so is he, so this Moon is good with his Scorpio Sun. I think you can get along well; the Aries Moon means he's romantic and will probably shower you with attention. Go for it!

  • He was born on July 3rd, 1969 and I was born on March 4th, 1976 are we compatible?

    So he is Cancer and you are Pisces. I've been getting many questions regarding this combination, and it's normally a good one. Both of you are water signs, so it's a relationship where you understand each other and it just flows easily. Of course, other factors will influence this, all your planets are in a sign, and that can broaden the interpretation quite a bit. But two water signs are generally compatible.

    You are both dreamers, but he is more ambitious and more of a leader, being Cancer. He will help ground you. You are creative and likable, probably artistically talented too.

  • I’m an Aries (April 15, 1968), and he’s a Scorpio (October 29,1966). Are we compatible?

    It's not the ideal combination, but it could work. I think of the elements when I work with couples and their compatibility. Scorpio is water, and Aries is fire. Water puts out a fire. He may stifle you in creative and other ways; you are more outgoing and lively than he is.

    But the moon and eight other planets are all in signs too and houses so this isn't much to go on. Your ruler, Mars, was once the ruler of Scorpio, until Pluto was discovered. You both have strong personalities and want your own way. He's stubborn, and you are adaptable. There's no reason not to give it a try!

  • Would a Virgo Sun / Aries Moon match well with a Pisces Sun / Virgo Moon?

    The Virgo Moon sign person will understand the emotions of the Virgo Sun person. The Virgo Sun is practical, calm, loyal, health conscious, and hard working. The Pisces Sun person is an opposite Sun sign from Virgo, and opposites always attract. I have an article about this which may help you:

    The Pisces is creative, gets along with all people, is spiritual and kind-hearted. This is someone who will go out of their way to help others. The Pisces Sun/Virgo Moon person's Sun opposes the Moon, so sometimes has trouble expressing emotions. The Virgo Moon is also critical and fussy, as is the Sun. So you have to be careful not to pick on each other over petty things.

    I like the Aries Moon, it's adventurous, and this person has a pioneering spirit. Aries Moon people are the life of the party, and this is good for both of you, as you can get in ruts. Just don't demand too much, or the Pisces will act like a martyr. I can't tell if you both have more air and fire signs here, so as I see it, it won't be a real lively relationship, but can be a loyal and romantic one. Best Wishes.

      Hi Sandra,

      Being a Pisces with an Aries Moon is like this---Pisces is an emotional, creative and most likely psychic person. It's the last sign of the zodiac, and Pisces people are what I call "old souls." You accept everyone for who they are, and are very understanding. Do you have many pairs of shoes? Pisces rules the feet.

      The Aries Moon means you get bored easily and have very original ideas. You will show your feelings for someone you care about, and be very romantic. You want to be with someone you can sort of "show off." You fall hard in love.

      You can understand your Aries friend, because you have the Aries Moon. That's a good point. Because you don't tell me your ages, I can't tell if the 6 years matters much. When we are teens it matters, as we get older, not so much.

      But you seem to be having issues getting closer and his awkwardness bothers you. Since he's Aries but private, maybe he has other planets in Pisces, and that would help smooth things over.

      I would see him a few more times to try to decide if you think it's going anywhere. I could also do a tarot reading (my first love is astrology, but tarot is a good fortune telling device when we first meet someone and wonder if they will be important in our lives). You can find my site if you Google my name.

      If he doesn't make a move or indicate interest soon, I'd say forget about him. Don't be hasty, but do it. Best Wishes. Jean

      Hi Jean, I am a Piscis with an Aries moon, and my friend is an Aries, but I don’t know his moon. He is 6 years younger than me, and we haven’t been intimate and he is very awkward. I don’t know if I should go ahead with our “friendship”,or just forget about him. I really like him and think about him all the time. Not sure about him, he is very private. What should I do. Thanks so much.

      It seems like you got involved too fast, and when he thought it over, regretted it. He fought with you because he likely thought of your encounter as a fling, not a long term relationship, especially if he was leaving the country. So I don't need astrology to tell you this is unrealistic, and that you didn't really have more than a one night stand or a few day long fling.

      Aquarius people are notorious for not wanting to settle down, they are freedom loving people. Aries Moon people also are impulsive and don't think before they act. I I don't think he ever meant this to be as much as you wanted it to be.

      You are Scorpio and want loyalty, passion and a monogamous relationship. You have much to offer, you are independent, strong and emotional. The Gemini Moon means you are interested in many things and are a bit restless.

      You don't tell me how long he was with you, but I wouldn't think he's coming back. I don't know what other ties he has to your country and I haven't done a complete birth chart on either of you (it's not free and takes hours). I understand he means much to you, but it seems you didn't have a real relationship that took any test of time either. Try to move on.

      Hi Jean

      I met a Aquarius man with Aries Moon for a week and second day in we were already intimate. He was very affectionate, couldn't take his hands off me, kissed and hugged me all the time, kept wanting me to be his girlfriend. Even though he knew I just had a bad relationship. It was all so fast I told him but I told him yes. He was also very generous with me. Wanting to buy me something before he left. Before he left my country, we had a fight and he called it off. He insisted on his way. He still insisting on wanting to be friends, kept saying he still wants to talk to me but cannot promise me anything after everything that happened. He also said he cares for me and he always will. He said I'm special and he hasn't met anyone like me. Do you think he'll come back?

      I have never met anyone like him for more than 10 years now. And I've been dating alot but kept failing.

      Any advice on how this Scorpio with Gemini Moon can get along with this Aquarius Man with Aries Moon? He really means something to me.

      It sounds like you care a great deal. It's hard to accept there are some people we can't help, no matter how much we care.

      Thank you for writing this, I can relate to a lot of things, things I wouldn't have thought about mentioning when describing myself, but now I am glad, that you typed them out for me :) I am one of those Aries moon ppl btw. The inferiority complexes, yes. And the part of not just sit around and listen to friends complain about their problems. I _am_ interested, I do want to help, but - if the person then constantly comes up with statements such as it's 'their life', and making me feel like I should keep my nose out of their business, then sorry but please... STFU, all this mimimimi whining is just attention seeking and I could care less. I have real problems, after all ;) I have been deleted from fb "friends". I mean, someone keeps posting what a terrible person her husband is, and whatever-moon-sign-people then encourage her when she posts that she wants to try to have a second child with him?? This is not my life, not my marriage, but we are talking about a child, a yet-to-be-made child, I am able to make it from 0 to 99 right away, from no reply ever to a flood of words. It's not like I don't care, it was just obvious that it would have been a waste of my time to give her constructive advice. She posted things such as her husband gambling and her and the child not having money for food. I knew he gambled, I worked at the casino, but she looked quite well-nourished in her almost daily selfie posts, so unless this wasn't only the case cause she made it to the food faster than her toddler, I figured they must be ok. But what woman in her right mind would then plan on having another baby, I just had to say something, cause I cared enough! Talking about an unborn is one thing, but please don't 'make' it if it's not even there yet and you seem to hate your life and your husband, regardless of whether you have a good reason to, or not.

      Just so much for us Aries people, we do care, we might just be a bit different, not indifferent, though :)

      Hello Morena,

      My husband of 34 yrs. had an Aries Moon, so I understand the type very well! He was always the life of the party. He was a unique thinker, a genius, and so interesting to talk to. He loved surprising people, and was a romantic and ardent lover. He always made me feel like I was the only person in the room. He passed on two months ago, and I feel lost without him.

      Sometimes he could come across as immature, Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, so they are the "babies" emotionally. But since the sign is first, their feelings are original, and completely their own. You've done a great job explaining the Aries Moon Sign. Take care.

      I have aries moon. And I am very straightforward in love. I enjoy being BOLD and brave in romance. Which is not for everyone, cause sometimes it borderders on confrontational. I LOVE attention and affection but im not the kind of woman who wants to hug for LONG drawn out periods of time. I get ancy! But I love being demonstrative. And I am fiercely loyal if I am actually in love and extremely passionate. If Im not then I have a friendly detached mood towards the other person. The tie might not last but in the past ive been open to trying. If it fizzles or crashes ill take off. But be sincere with the other person. Ive kissed someone else when dating someone else because I was in the moment & completely forgot about them. Only happened once but I felt really bad and told the person and cut romantic ties cause it was clear I didnt have those deep feelings for them. I am not malicious. But I can be absent minded. If im not In love again its second nature for me to move forward right away and not look back if it didn't work out. Because I feel like one: fundamentally I am an individual I have no need to be in a partnership if it doesn't seem right, and mostly if it didn't work it wasn't right in the first place. On the outside it might seem to others that I don't care but its not that, i just don't like to dwell because its a waste of time. That doesn't mean I don't cherish the time that was spent, because i do. If I get angry I can have an outburst. And send an angry message in all caps haha. But I get over it. Keep moving... that's my instinct. I don't like to feel stuck in the mud. I love being warm, and hyper, and pioneering in certain ways. Like being the one who brings the group out to dance and start the party! But overall yes I can admit I feel immature sometimes and temperamental, but I have the desire to channel it in different ways now that I am older. I am a good person, love adventure, and I am very protective of my loved ones. Trust me... i know that we can be too much and get on peoples last nerve. I annoy myself sometimes. But were genuine and don't play games. Hope this provides some insight (:l

      Hi Sylvia,

      It's always a pleasure to hear from you. My Aries moon husband comes out with some things that really surprise me even now, but he's spontaneous (well, for a Taurus) and he's too sweet to deliberately hurt my feelings. When we first met he showered me with gifts, and was very attentive to me. He is still very good to me, and at our ages now, I notice he is a bit possessive of me yet. He was even a bit jealous about the time I spent on HP in the beginning. I was at a holiday bazaar Saturday trying to sell my book. He stopped in twice to see how I was doing! I understand he really cares and knows how much work I put into the book, but also know he felt like he needed to be with me. Take care, Jean
