Want to Better Understand Yourself? Know Your Moon Sign! Here’s How

We’ve all experienced the cliché of someone asking us, “What’s your sign?” In just one question, a person thinks they can get a general sense of who we are. And it’s not totally unfair.

I’m no astrological expert by any stretch of the imagination, but I do love astrology. And as far as I can tell, ALL self-understanding tools like astrology, numerology, birth order and more, seem to have at least a grain of truth, and very often, a whole lot more.

The problem, though, with someone asking your “sign” is that they’re asking for your sun sign, and nowadays, it may not even be the most important aspect of your astrological chart. Here’s why.

The sun sign relates to your masculine identity. Its popularity is understandable, since our culture has been predominantly masculine for approximately 5000 years now. But quite recently, the tides have shifted, and feminine energy is expanding across the planet.

Feminine essence is becoming more important than masculine essence, the way an inhale becomes the most important thing to do after a long exhale. It’s not that it’s better, it’s just complementary and needed.

Your feminine essence and emotional being is represented not by your sun sign, but by your moon sign. And the cool thing about the moon is that it goes through cycles, and these cycles help you on your path of self-unfolding. They help you understand the rhythms of your life and  to know when to plant your intentions and when to harvest them.

So, what I’m saying is this: KNOW YOUR MOON SIGN & USE IT.

First, find out your moon sign. Here’s a great place where you can do it quickly and for free right now:


Then, observe the cycles of the moon. Here’s a good calendar for that:


Become aware of when YOUR moon is new and when it is full. On your particular new moon, take stock of where you are and set your most heartfelt intentions for transformation, and on the full moon of your sign (six months later), look to see what has transpired. Then, celebrate and /or recalibrate. On the next new moon, six months later, you can set another intention or simply re-commit to the same one.

I believe you’ll find this to be an incredibly fruitful way to approach the cycles of your own transformation.

You can also consult with me to learn more about your Chakra Life Cycles and which one you are currently in. This information coupled with your numerological destiny number can provide amazing insight into how you might approach your own transformational intentions.

If you’re a surfer, you want to surf when the waves are the best, right? By knowing your moon sign and these simple cycles, you can “surf” the waves of your transformation in a powerful way and make the most of any planetary and evolutionary opportunities. And that’s when the game of transformation gets really fun!

    Does this only include 12 zodiac signs, because the reality is there are more than that…
