After we pop our heads through for our welcome to the world most of us are loved immediately and cared for, and yet others are not so welcome and face a totally different reception.

      thanks for your comments...An aries moon is an ambitious placement. I don't always believe in the waning and waxing. I think sometimes Astrologers make it way too complicated. Thanks Rajan for votes and shares.

      Very interesting, Carol. My moon sign is Aries with a waning moon. I know I have a lot of energy and am strong in my beliefs. Just wondering if a waning moon makes for some mellowing of the qualities of this sign.

      Hi Carol,

      I'm so happy to see someone tackle Moonsigns. I've written about them here and on my blog, but people still are confused about Moonsigns VS Sunsigns. I get so many emails on Moonsign pieces that say, "Oh, everyone says that's me!" I tell them that only the very closest people who know their emotional makeup should know how their Moonsign really shows. Mine is Capricorn!

      Interesting and useful, it appears that there is a lot more going on with astrology then meets the eye. On the surface it seems as if all you need is a zodiac sign but the reality of it goes a lot deeper for a more accurate reading. Definitely a good share,thanks.

      Today was just moon signs. Look at the calculator and figure out your moon sign to go with your libra sun sign. I am also a libra.

      Thank you for your answer. I was born on October 14th... so it's about 2/3 of the sign. I have to search for the term "cusp" with astrology to understand it better. I am even not familiar with the equivalent term in French. So will learn something new again today :-)

      thanks billy buc you do not have to be a believer..But I appreciate your coming by my astrology hubs.

    • carol7777 profile image

      carol stanley 5 years ago from Arizona

      Actually when you are on cusp or what is referred to as the cusp..for example November 22..some say scorpio and some say sagittarius..reality is that changes every ten years or that depends what year you were born. If the middle of the sign...there is probably little change.

      Bill Holland 5 years ago from Olympia, WA

      I have a Pisces moon sign and the description was right on. That's pretty cool. I'm not sure I'm a believer but you have at least opened my eyes. Great hub!

    • kidscrafts profile image

      kidscrafts 5 years ago from Ottawa, Canada

      I never can resist reading my horoscope. Once, I even went to have an horoscope reading and I was floored by what the lady told me ; to go there was huge step for me but I didn't regret it. She was right about something really fundamental in my life.

      Anyway... I have a question for you. Star signs were created about 2,000 years ago by tracking the position of the sun in the sky each month. But I heard that with time the moon's gravitational pull has slowly moved the Earth in its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars' alignment. So if I follow that theory, I should look at the Scorpio instead of Libra. What is your view on that one-month bump. I just try to better understand the theory behind this.
