Criticism is a hard pill to swallow and will often lead them to lash out like a wounded animal. Virgo Moons crave order which means that emotional vulnerability can be quite a struggle for them. Under the sign of Virgo, perfectionism meets altruism meaning that Virgo Moon’s often can be too hard on themselves and not hard enough on others who are toxic to them. Speak practically to them and they’ll love you for life. Let them have their routine so they can keep themselves happy. They want to understand ideas and philosophy, so meet them in this space and they will feel inspired to share your company. They love to learn and can often be very insulted when someone questions their intelligence.
Their tendency to analyze can give them the appearance of emotional detachment. In fact, Lunar Geminis may be especially comfortable talking about their feelings, but feeling their own feelings doesn’t come as easily. Those that don’t take time out to really emote and understand their own needs may end up baffling others.
Moon in Gemini
When the eclipse reaches totality, the glowing edges of the sun peek out around the silhouette of the moon, giving the appearance of—you guessed it—a ring of fire.

Give them room to be alone with themselves, and they’re generally able to take on the world–even if their style when they do so is not always conventional or understandable. Their sense of humor is delightfully silly and a bit odd. These are perceptive souls who seem to be in touch with all the nuances and subtleties of human nature. Lunar Pisceans are known to be dreamy and not always in touch with reality. However, though these people may not always show real-world savvy in day-to-day, practical affairs, they make up for this with remarkable intuition.
It is vital for Cancer Moon natives to feel valued, loved, and appreciated by those close to them, as if they feel undervalued, they can experience many negative emotions. They are incredibly sympathetic and understanding toward what other people go through, and Cancer Moon natives will always borrow a shoulder to cry on to anyone in need. When people do not have anyone to turn to, a Cancer Moon will open their heart and allow that person a safe space. Your moon sign represents one of the deepest parts of your birth chart.
How to calculate your moon sign.
Aquarius Moons can often feel very alone in the world and will put the needs of others above their own because of their egalitarian ideals. They will be impressed with your organization and commitment to a well-oiled budget. Speak to them about school, goals and business and they’ll enjoy the conversation. Don’t expect them to show their vulnerabilities because they aren’t wired to do so. To make them feel safe, give them a purpose and a steady income. Don’t ask a Capricorn Moon to take a big uncalculated risk, that’s not the language they speak.
You’ll stick up for the underdog in a heartbeat, or encourage people to rise above petty conflicts and find that “one love” unity that we all share. Your ability to detach and be the voice of reason is this moon sign’s superpower. With the moon in show-stopping Leo or the flamboyant 5th house, your feelings are big, bold and impossible to ignore. While that can feel like a load to bear, it also makes you compassionate. When you feel people, you might even “become” them, channeling their voices, movements and gestures in a dead-on impersonation.
When you apply pressure onto them or throw their scales out of balance by creating chaos around them, they can get extremely frazzled and confused. Structure, routine, and a sense of order are fundamental to Virgo Moons. They are known as the “fixers” of the zodiac, and they can be quite highly strung if a spanner gets thrown into the works, and their routine is thrown out of order. Lists, diaries, and sticking to a set schedule could play a big role in their life, as these things bring order to their life.
As well, Virgo is a sign that can live very much in the mind in the middle of an experience, failing to enjoy the moment. The shadow side of this position is being overly critical of our partners, picky, or worrisome. In some ways, we are attracted to crisis, as we see crisis as transformative and emotionally exciting. We would rather feel extreme emotions than nothing at all, as mediocrity or the “middle road” is felt to be unsatisfying. In love, we’re not very showy, flowery, or demonstrative.
There is a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error.
