Did you know that your relationship is affected by the Moon’s monthly journey through the sky? Each month (approximately) the Moon travels through all twelve zodiac signs, spending about two and a half days in each. Since the Moon rules emotions and feelings, your relationship compatibility will be modified by the Moon’s journey in an ongoing monthly cycle. In love compatibility, zodiac signs tell us how someone’s ego works, but the Moon tells us far more about emotions, which is why charting the movements of Lady Love is so important.
It’s easy to find out which sign the Moon is in on any given day – any online lunar calendar will tell you, or you can buy astrological diaries which do the same job. If you know your Moon sign, and your partner’s Moon sign, pay particular attention to the days when the Moon is in your or his/her own sign, as those are the days when you’ll feel most energetic, most loving and probably at your sexiest too. If you don’t know your Moon signs, why not indulge in an Astromatcha astrology compatibility report – there you’ll find out all about your Moon compatibility as well as a huge amount of detail about the rest of your relationship.
Here’s a quick guide to how the Moon’s journey through the first six signs will flavour your relationship on a daily basis.
Moon in Aries
Under this influence, a calm relationship might well flare up, while a fiery one or a couple already in crisis could find the Aries Moon to be the last straw. Relationship compatibility is tested during these few days, and you’ll need to make allowances for each other’s tempers. Take on some challenging activities together in order to rebuild your sense of being a team.
Moon in Taurus
When the Moon is in Taurus, you as a couple are more likely to be patient with one another. It’s a very private time, and you won’t feel as sociable – this could be a good thing or a not so good thing, depending on your relationship. Compatibility under a Taurus Moon is all about sensuality, so enjoy long, slow loving and tender embraces. Get outdoors and into nature as much as you can.
Moon in Gemini
This is a very talkative Moon, but you must remember to listen to each other as well as talk! Under a Gemini Moon, you can join forces in a creative endeavour, and you can also use these logical energies to find rational solutions to any niggles which have been plaguing your relationship. Compatibility between you will need to deal with the flirtatious influence of this Moon – if you’re not the flirty kind, that can be a struggle.
Moon in Cancer
The Moon rules the sign of Cancer, and the Cancer Moon is notorious for stirring up very deeply held emotions. Expect both you and your partner to feel more sulky and moody than normal. You might each want to withdraw into yourselves, rather than tackling issues head on. It’s probably healthy for your relationship compatibility to give each other plenty of space during this couple of days.
Moon in Leo
The Leo Moon typically comes as a relief after the intensity of the Cancer Moon. This is a joyful, exuberant time for your relationship, and very playful too. Lavish each other with extravagant affection, and get out and about socialising as much as possible. The Leo Moon is all about drama, but drama of the fun and memorable kind.
Moon in Virgo
Under a Virgo Moon, worries about a relationship will typically surface. Take care not to be too critical of each other at this time, because both of your souls are laid bare. Although it can be stressful, the Virgo Moon is also a healing time for your relationship. Compatibility is strengthened if you take the time to talk through your concerns, and there’s an undercurrent of old fashioned romance here.
In love compatibility, zodiac signs are not the be all and end all, and the Moon’s monthly journey around the zodiac is a great example of that. Whatever your Sun sign, you’ll feel the impact of the Moon upon your relationship; getting to know these cycles can be a great help in planning how best to deal with emotional, love related issues.
