Moon Signs and their Personality Traits

The moon exerts a mysterious influence over the natural world. All sorts of animals rely on the moon for various behaviors, from navigation to feeding to spawning. When their behavior is not simply attributable to the extra light of a full moon, how and why these creatures exhibit different behaviors during different lunar phases remains somewhat of a mystery. If animal behaviors can be driven by the moon, it's not altogether unbelievable that the moon might have some effects on humans as well.

Most people know their zodiac sign as their sun sign, but did you know you also have a moon sign that corresponds to the location of the moon at the date and time of your birth? Below are some traditional personality descriptions for the twelve different lunar zodiac signs. Check if your moon sign sounds like you - it may very well sound more like you than your solar sign!
