The Moon moves into Aquarius at 10:02pm tonight. Since I have Moon in Aquarius in my natal chart, I feel inspired to write about it.
Lunar Aquarians, like myself, are what I call “people watchers.” We’re extremely observant and love to study and analyze our fellow humans. We enjoy hearing people’s life stories and figuring out what makes everyone tick. Psychology is thus one of my favorite subjects. I also like to watch “A&E Biography” and “E! True Hollywood Story,” and I’m embarrassed to confess, I even like to watch reality tv shows. Moon in Aquarius explains a lot!
As “people watchers,” those of us with Moon in Aquarius are able to understand and relate to all different types of people in all walks of life. Because of this we are quite sociable and even popular. However, we are unique and don’t quite fit in anywhere. We recognize very early on how “different” we are from others. Despite our sociable nature, we are sort of loners at heart. When I was growing up, believe it or not, I was painfully shy. I have discovered this is common with Lunar Aquarians. Moon in Aquarius can indicate a difficult childhood or other hard experiences, and like many other Lunar Aquarians, I learned very early on how to detach. This doesn’t mean we don’t have emotions. It just means we are more analytical than emotional.
People with Moon in Aquarius are highly independent, and we pride ourselves on our uniqueness and nonconformity. This may be a result of growing up not quite fitting in anywhere. We are somewhat idealistic and passionate about our beliefs, and if rubbed the wrong way, we can be very defensive. We tend to be very stubborn, especially as children. As we grow older, we learn to how to compromise and balance our strong egos.
Despite our cool appearance, we are highly compassionate and our feelings run deep. Many humanitarians have Moon in Aquarius. Our kindness and general concern for others is typically a life philosophy. For the most part, we “live and let live” and value freedom. We give others the space and freedom to be themselves, and we appreciate the same in return. If anyone challenges our behavior or character, our response will likely be, “take it or leave it!” If you can’t accept us as we are, hasta la vista, baby!
Lunar Aquarians are never boring, that’s for sure. We are very interesting and often very entertaining. We like to make sure everyone is having fun and no one feels left out. We will also often fight for the underdog. Although quirky and unpredictable, Aquarius is a fixed sign, so when it comes down to the big stuff, we are actually quite predictable, reliable, and loyal. Overall, we make great friends.
