WHETHER you live your life according to the stars, or not, very few people (if any) are unsure about what their star sign is – which refers to your sign of the zodiac according to the sun.
But just as there’s day, there’s also night, meaning, we each have moon sign, too – but what does this actually mean?

What is a moon sign?
Your star sign is determined by the sun’s position at the time you were born, which is said to dictate your personality.
Your moon sign, however, represents your emotions and inner mood, and according to astrologers, the two go hand-in-hand.
This is especially true for women, according to Lunarium, since the Moon in astrology is the patroness of women.
According to starslikeyou.com: “In many ways, your moon sign will describe what you do naturally, and your sun sign will point to what you will develop, as well as who you must become.”

How do I find out my moon sign?
While your sun sign is easy to determine – based on the date you were born – it’s a little more complicated to work out your moon sign.
Your moon sign is determined by calculating your full date, place and time of birth and finding your position around the moon.
It moves quickly around the zodiac, visiting each sign for around two to two and a half days.
Your moon sign is likely to be different from your sun sign – i.e. you might be a Taurus, but your lunar sign might be in Sagittarius.
Luckily, there are Moon Sign Calculators available online, such as this one from Lunarium, which can help you work out your sign.
