Aries Moon Sign Emotions
The Ram Represents Aries
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!
Llewellyn 2018 Moon sign Book
I use a copy of this book every year (and receive too many as gifts) because it makes it easy to find out many interesting and helpful tips about your Moon sign, and other topics related to the Moon.
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.

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.

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
My significant other and I both have an Aries Moon. Are we compatible?
That means you both have similar emotional makeups. It can't hurt, but there's so much more in a chart, this isn't enough information. This article, "Aries Moon Sign Emotions," gives more information on the topic than I can answer here, although I can't confirm either way. Astrology is a lot more complicated than that, if you read a few of the other questions here, I discuss that more.
I am an Aquarius sun (12°) and an Aries moon (28°) male, and he is a Gemini (born May 24, 1990). With this small amount of info, do you think we're compatible?
Both of you are Sun Air signs, so this is a good match. You are both interesting and intelligent, and love to try new things. Travel is fun, trying new restaurants, going to movies and concerts are things you both enjoy. An Aries Moon means you are impulsive, lively and romantic; so far so good. I would give it a try.

I have a Leo sun and a Scorpio moon. My boyfriend has a Virgo sun and an Aries moon. Are we compatible?
It's hard for me to tell with just this information. Every planet you have is in a zodiac sign and house that has three or four meanings. Be aware these interpretations may be incomplete.
Leo and Virgo suns are signs next to each other, and these usually work out well. This is because as a Leo, you more than likely have at least one or more planets in Virgo. The same goes for your Virgo boyfriend; he will have at least one or more planets in Leo, so your attitudes about some issues in life won't be too different. You seem outgoing and like to entertain, being a good host with a sunny personality. He is intelligent and restless, so he likes to keep busy. He is health-oriented and likes the outdoors.
Your Scorpio moon means you are intensely emotional and pursue anything in your life with passion. Both Leo and Scorpio are fixed signs, so you are stubborn, or persistent. You are very loyal to loved ones and are also very independent. I would go as far as to say you are high maintenance. You want to be treated like a Queen.
His Aries moon means he is outgoing too, but a bit self-centered. He doesn't think ahead and is very impulsive. He is emotionally immature to a certain degree, but you are more centered, and that may attract him to you. Sometimes a water sign puts out a fire sign, but having squared moons can add excitement to a relationship. So I would give you a tentative yes, you are compatible. I do these little interpretations, but they are in no way a complete astrological profile. There is potential here.Helpful 2
I'm a double Leo, Moon in Aries, both Mars and Venus in Virgo. I'm currently (read: usually) single. Should I even bother dating with these planets where they are?
Of course, you should! Leo Sun and Ascendant people are very outgoing and loving people. Others are drawn to your warmth and charm. The Moon in Aries means you are the leader of any group you are in and have original ideas. The Moon also represents emotions, and you do change a lot. Do you get easily bored in a relationship? Maybe the chase is the most fun?
Venus in Virgo does make you critical of potential dating material, but the other influences I see can act against that. You also are probably happy not always being half of a couple. But this is in no way a bad combo for dating and finding a partner. Maybe the time is just wrong. Hang in there--sometimes the right one comes along when we aren't looking, and least expect it. Take care, and don't be so hard on yourself. You have some great qualities.Helpful 1
