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.
