Hi I'm Cindy Turner for About.com.

What Are Moon Signs in the Birth Chart?

When you're having a discussion about astrology and talk about what sign you are, you're talking about your sun sign. It's who you are, your hopes and dreams, it's how you present yourself to the world and how others perceive you. But equally important is your moon sign.

The sun and the moon are considered planets in astrology. And all planets have needs. The sun needs to exist, to shine and create. The moon needs security. The moon reveals the deeper side of you. It's your feelings, how you interact with people and how you present yourself emotionally. It's about what nurtures you and who and what you're drawn to for comfort.

Planets, Houses and Zodiac Signs in Relation to Moon Signs in the Birth Chart

There are several main players that make up your birth chart and they all contribute in different ways. Planets and zodiac signs are considered energies. The planets represent our needs or drives. The zodiac signs modify the planet's energies.

And the Houses are where the energies are expressed. The Wheel of Houses is one of 2 major circles that make up your birth chart. The first circle are the zodiac signs the 2nd one is made up of 12 Houses. They represent different departments in our life.

The moon moves at a constant quick rate changing every 2 and 1/2 days. It moves through all 12 zodiac signs in one month. The sun is also at a constant rate but takes a year to move through each of the 12 signs. The sun and the moon along with the other planets play an important role in your birth chart. Let's take a look at some.

Your moon sign is an important part of your birth chart but must be interweaved with all aspects of your astrological profile for an accurate interpretation.
