The Moon and your Home
If we had to describe what the Moon does in Astrology, we would simply say, it reflects. It doesn’t have its own source of light, it only reflects the Sun’s light at night, when we need it the most. The Moon is not about how we express, assert or take action. It’s about reflecting how we feel, how we sense, and who we are deep inside. And so does our home. The Moon and the home are in perfect analogy with each other. The Moon reflects our emotional needs and our inner reality. It’s a feminine, motherly energy that shows how we need to be nurtured to feel safe and secure. The home is a perfect reflection of this energy. The home is where find comfort and relaxation, it’s where we recharge and it also reflects our individuality, our sense of self, and our personal style.
What does your Moon Sign tell about your Home?
The sign the Moon was at the time of your birth can tell a lot about your inner, emotional side. It says a lot about what you need to feel secure, nurtured, and fulfilled. You often express this unique energy in your intimate relationships, but especially in your home. For example, some zodiac signs need their home to reflect their individuality. Some need to find a comfortable place for intellectual stimulation and learning. Some need it to be a place where they can take care of their loved ones. And some need it to be a place where they can feel free and unrestrained.
