Your Moon sign speaks to the ‘nurture’ side of your personality, as the Sun signs speak of the ‘nature’ of the person you become, on your journey through this world. The Moon represents the Mother energy. Your Moon sign often mirrors the way you were mothered.
For this reason, it makes sense to view your Moon sign as the embodiment of your inner child. Indeed, your Moon sign is determined by your name, birth date, birth location, and birth time. So, rather than always feeling comfortable with your Moon sign, you may feel rather embarrassed by some of its features. Be aware that this discomfort is a sign that you either have outgrown some of your childhood tendencies—or you still need to.
Your Moon sign speaks to your true self. It speaks to your experience growing up, and resulting outlook on the world. In essence, you are looking for your mother. Your Moon sign is the embodiment of your inner child.
It is important to offer this character as much acceptance as you would to a younger version of yourself. You will feel the growing pains. Do not stop on your search for the enlightenment the Moon has to offer you.
The Moon in Aries Traits
The Moon in Aries speaks to the need for action. An Aries is not the type to sit still for long. The Ram is known for having a temper.
A Lunar Aries has just as much trouble with patience as a Sun sign Aries. It is important to note that you may not be as quick to admit this. You may struggle with anger or self-regulation. You may act a bit too quickly at times.
On a positive note, your cat-like reflexes and passion for helping others make you a great first responder. You will find fulfillment in jobs in the medical fields and emergency services.

You like things straightforward. You are very literal, with little love for sarcasm. You probably have this in common with your mother. She was probably not the type to coddle and sugar coat.
You get your independent streak from this Moon sign and your mother. She taught you how to get back up after a nasty fall. She taught you to hold your head high, even when you feel defeated. These are lessons you are still learning.
Do your mother proud and watch your tongue. Be kind to others—in speech, action and reaction. In the same vein, be considerate of those who share your spaces. You might impulsively move a chair in the living room without a second thought.
Some signs might not appreciate your spontaneous initiative. They stub their toes on the same chairs you cannot keep from rearranging, bi-weekly.
