Do YOU have an Aries Moon Sign in your natal chart?

Not sure? If the Moon was moving through the very FIRST zodiac sign at the moment of your birth, then yep, ya do have an Aries Moon sign! 

Lunar astrology is really fascinating. Knowing your natal Moon sign can actually be a lot more revealing than just knowing your Sun sign (or star sign, or “horoscope” as most people call it). And in combination, your Sun + Moon signs make up a much more complete and in-depth picture of who you really are.

The Moon represents your deepest emotions

She reveals how you connect to the world on more sensitive layers of your being. Her placement in the skies says a lot about your intuition and instincts, and what lies in the shadows of your unconscious. Knowing about your natal Moon can help you to really understand what drives you from the deep. She will take you beyond surface-level personality…

Here’s what your natal Aries Moon sign (OR Moon in the 1st House) says about you…

So… at the moment you were born, our Grandmother Moon was moving through the Aries Zodiac sign. You came first! So it’s no surprise, that this Moon is fiery, courageous, and QUICK off the starting blocks.

As a cardinal Fire sign, Aries brings impulsive, pioneering energy to the cosmic cauldron.

Folks with this natal Moon are often forerunners in their field, as their sense of emotional wellbeing comes from breaking new ground. And not only that – Aries Moons LOVE to win! This Moon is probably the most competitive of all… And you get a real buzz from not only coming first, but also running the race.

Aries Moon signs love a challenge

…But unless the challenge stays interesting, your emotional investment may begin to wane pretty quickly, leading to easy distractions. This is why so many people with this natal Moon tend to switch around from one thing to the next, in an attempt to keep life exciting.

Simply: Aries Moon signs get bored easily!

So seeking out situations that will keep your attention long-term is the real goal. Not the short-term thrill of the chase (though that IS a lot of fun…)

That said, this natal Moon sign will never back away from a challenge. You have huge reserves of emotional strength and self-motivation is a prime characteristic. If others are feeling a little lackluster, inspiration is guaranteed to come from this Moon.

And although you may not be a dedicated team player (remember that competitive streak?) occasionally calling in support, delegating tasks, and actually relying on your friends, family + colleagues some of the time can be a faster route to the top.

Aries Moons are highly spontaneous – these folks often really enjoy taking risks. In fact, what may appear risky business to others, is simply a walk in the park for the Aries Moon sign! Yet this impulsive streak does usually work out for the best – these Moon signs learn from experience that s/he who dares wins!

Are you someone whose independence was encouraged as a child?

Often people with their natal Moon in Aries have been used to “going it alone” for pretty much most of their lives. Sure, you have friends (heaps!) and no problems socially at all. But emotionally, an Aries Moon sign does NOT need anybody else propping them up!

This natal Moon sign is ruled by Mars, the planet of war

This can be a little confusing, but just imagine this red planet as another ingredient in the mix, a thread running through your emotional world…

Meaning: your Aries Moon can sometimes add an extra sprinkle of fiery fight and a touch of hostility to your emotional realms. You may get a little argumentative once in a while. And it’s probably not too far from the truth to say that Aries Moon signs even enjoy a little light sparring at times.

In their worst moments, Aries Moons can get angry. And it’s important to realise that if your temper is a little on the short side, it’s YOUR responsibility to tame it. You don’t need to dampen your fire completely (that spark is in this Moon sign’s nature, after all) but channelling that passion will serve you well long term.

All fire Moon signs LOVE to love!

But it’s an Aries Moon that gets truly ignited by that first spark of attraction. Emotionally, you likely love the thrill of the chase, and enjoy the honeymoon period of new relationships. Longer-term, it’s vital for this natal Moon to keep that spark alive. Or their eyes (and heart) may start to wander…

The Natal Aries Moon Sign Shadow Side…

The shadow is where we put all the parts of our personality and traits + characteristics that we reject, suppress and disown. But inside the shadow, these disowned parts become distorted and still have control over our lives – through without any conscious awareness.

You can read more about the shadow here.

Knowing your natal Moon sign can be an amazing tool for unpacking the shadow.

This is because the Moon also refers to and activates the realms of the unconscious – this place with SO much power over us yet, that’s usually vastly unknown.

For an Aries Moon sign, the traits that may unlock the door into your shadow include:

  • Selfishness + arrogance
  • Egotism
  • Argumantativeness + hostility
  • Hyper-competitiveness / being unable to give in
  • Being unable to commit
