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 also one of the areas of interpretation called 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?
Aries Moon Sign People Traits
Since Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, Aries 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. moon sign
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 are a bit self centered. Why should they concentrate on other people?
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.Helpful 1
I am a Virgo. Am I compatible with a Gemini woman with Saturn in Taurus?
Virgo and Gemini are in a planetary aspect we call a square. This is a challenging aspect, but that doesn't make it bad, it can cause interest and attraction. Both of you are good communicators, and attracted to each other on a mental level, helpful in a relationship. The Virgo is critical but serious and practical. They make good and loyal friends. A Gemini is restless more so than Virgo and runs hot and cold in love. You have to keep her interested. Virgos are smart and you should be able to do that, you get bored fast as well.
As far as Saturn in Taurus, why did you pick one planet in a zodiac sign when all of them are in one? All 10 in your chart. I can't really tell how that affects you as a couple, there's little information here for me to go on. Saturn in Taurus means she wants material things but will work hard to get them. She has a strong need for emotional and financial security. She likes to keep all her affairs in order. Since Saturn is a karmic planet, and takes 30 years to go around the whole zodiac, by the time she's 30 she will seek a stable job to ensure the security she needs. She is frugal and likely to work in banking or some kind of management. But this can be for better or worse, I can't tell without casting a Natal Birth Chart. Everyone has a Saturn Return at ages 27-30, that's the first one, and often a karmic lesson is involved in it, which can be a painful one. We have another at 57-60, and one last one at 87-90 if we live that long. Just knowing two Sun signs and one sign Saturn is so little to go on. People keep writing and asking me to answer these questions, but seem to think I can do a personality profile without being able to see most of the picture. I can't understand why people are so reluctant to get a whole chart when it can explain everything about them in about 20 pages, so these mini interpretations are frustrating for me. It's looking at a portion of a picture. I feel sympathetic, so try to interpret what's there, but the truth is, what isn't there may be much more important. As far as compatibility, it could work, and is worth a try.Helpful 5
I'm a Virgo sun, Aries moon, and Leo ascendant. What important things can you tell me about myself from this?
Having a Virgo Sun means you are intelligent, and a trusted and reliable friend. You care about diet and exercise. You are critical and sometimes focus too much on little details, but depending on what kind of work you do, that can also be a positive thing. You are well-read and keep up on what is happening in the world.
The Aries Moon rules your emotions. You can be a little immature, as it's the first zodiac sign. But when you are in love, you adore the person and are very affectionate. You are outgoing and willing to try new things. You are fun to be with.
The Leo Ascendant is the way others see you. Leos are the kings and queens and come off as though they want to be treated like royalty. But you can be generous and love to entertain. You can be a little bossy at times, and having the Aries Moon often expect to have it your way. But the Virgo Sun is the strongest of the trinity, so brings you back to being sensible. It's a good combination.Helpful 8
I'm a Leo sun, Sagittarius moon, Libra Rising. My BF is a Gemini sun, Aries moon and Aries rising. How good is that combo and what should I look out for?
I think this is a great combo. You have the Leo Sun, so expect to be treated like royalty, but are outgoing, kind, and generous. He is Gemini, so likes that about you, and is a life of the party kind of guy. Fire (Leo) needs Air (Gemini) to burn. The Sag Moon and Aries Moon are both Fire signs, and again compatible. You are a live and let live person, maybe more independent in a relationship than he is. His Aries Moon means he will put you on a pedestal, and you like that. He's a little emotionally immature, so needs attention too, be sure to give him enough of it. You are both spontaneous, so that's fun. Libra rising means you come across as the peacemaker, have a little trouble making up your mind, and like life to be in balance. This is opposite his Aries rising, but opposites attract, so there's a lot of sexual chemistry here. I'd be shocked if this didn't work out. Have fun!Helpful 3
I'm an Aquarius woman. My Moon sign is Aries. My ex has a Pieces sun and Aries moon. I broke up with him because I couldn't take his aggression, jealousy, or how he always started fighting. My question is, why do I not act this crazy like him when I also have an Aries Moon?
You are a stronger person, as Aquarius is a fixed sign. A Pisces person will give in to whims more. But that's not a good explanation of why you both have Aries Moons, and he flies off the handle, and you don't. I can't tell what zodiac signs his other planets are in. It sounds to me that he may have planets in Scorpio. The jealousy and aggression ARE Aries traits, but without a whole chart, I can't see what houses his other eight planets are in. Scorpio would cause him to ACT on the Aries Moon impulses you both share. But it could also be an aspect between his planets, and I can't see that from this info. You have planets in zodiac signs where it helps you to exercise more self-control. I think it was wise to get out of the relationship. Your Aquarius Sun means you are independent and a nonconformist, and Aries Moon people are generally fun and have many original ideas, they are the pioneers. I was married to a man with an Aries Moon for 34 yrs. He was very romantic and great at showing it. But it was in the 5th house, the romance house, and he had a Taurus sun, Scorpio Ascendant, and planets in other calm signs, plus disciplined planetary aspects.Helpful 11
