Because your rising can alter when you relocate, I’ve avoided using the rising symbol in this essay. It’s really of dishonest to compare house placements to planetary placements because the rising also determines all of your house placements.
Here are some of my observations regarding the differences between the Sun and Moon in the signs without further ado:
Sun in Aries vs Moon in Aries
The truth is that the Sun in Aries is not at all overactive. Although sometimes the most obscure Sun sign, this is definitely not an obscure Moon sign. While a solar Aries can enjoy letting people know what they should and shouldn’t do, they lack the raw, blazing energy of a lunar Aries. They are far more stoic, but they are also much more submissive and eager to serve. While the Sun in Aries might be directed to take action, the Moon in Aries will rebel just for the pleasure of rebelling. While Aries Moon is constantly standing up and moving around, Solar Aries spends a lot more time within their heads.
The major distinction between the two, in my observation, is that the Sun in Aries prefers solitude far more than the Moon in Aries, who is much more sociable. Aries Sun like making major life decisions while sitting in one spot indoors far more than Aries Moon, who needs to venture out and experience new things. In contrast to Moon in Aries, who can frequently be late, Sun in Aries is virtually always early to everything. Both work on their own schedules, but Moon is more responsive.
Compare the Sun in Aries to a professional soldier and the Moon in Aries to a lawbreaker in the American West.
Sun in Taurus vs Moon in Taurus
A Taurus Moon has a genuine sensuality to it. There’s no way you won’t notice their social elegance while they’re around you. They are quite sensitive in interpersonal interactions. They also know how to honestly, genuinely appreciate things, of all people. When a Taurus Moon is at the table, you can tell because they always seem to know where the best food in town is. They have a sensation of luxury. They like the greatest quality, are willing to pay for it, and may choose to skip meals if they don’t find them to be appetizing.
On the other hand, Taurus Suns are direct. Despite their physical beauty, they can lack social grace. They focus more on producing material goods than they do on relaxing and appreciating what should be enjoyed. You’re probably eating on a budget rather than in luxury when you eat with them. They are cramming food into their lips rather than tasting it. This placement is straightforward. They are extremely frugal with money as opposed to lunar Taurus’ excessive spending.
Sun in Gemini vs Moon in Gemini
The primary distinction is that Gemini Moons are more prone to saying “Gemini Suns, I’m not sure. Moon in Gemini is a little otaku-like. They are the ones who have been up all night researching every conspiracy idea over the past ten years. Conversations with Lunar Gemini are exceedingly light, effortless, and airy. They actually don’t enjoy being around others as much, though. They always appear to be bored and are gone somewhere weirdly imagining stuff.
Social behavior is more likely in Gemini Suns. They really leave the house and disconnect from the internet because of their curiosity. Their energy is also much stronger. They frequently impart knowledge to others, and while around people, they may fly from one person to another. They certainly aspire to “It is more about giving answers than it is about asking questions when the time is perfect.
Sun in Cancer vs Moon in Cancer
Strong Moon in Cancer. Many of the clichs about Cancerthat they are secretly depressed and never leave the houseare true for lunar cancers. Lunar cancers can occasionally be a bit filthy. It doesn’t always follow that this placement enjoys having their own room that it is a lovely space. They love their own aroma, even though others may not find their space to be comfortable. Since they don’t trust new individuals, they genuinely really dislike meeting them.
As a more outwardly oriented Cancer, Cancer Sun is able to enter a location and make it cozy for the people they care about. The Cancer Suns are the ones who really bind a group together and seem to convey extremely honest, unfiltered emotions. While Cancer Moon prefers to scurry away, they can be a leader who rallies people around a cause. Although both signs have a tendency to be quite scheming, you can usually tell when Cancer Sun or Cancer Moon are angry with you.
Sun in Leo vs Moon in Leo
Leo Moons are much more subdued than Leo Suns are. You might experience a very warm feeling when speaking with Leo Moons. They engage you by focusing solely on you. They have a powerful, sincere feeling. You can see all of Leo Suns’ glitz and sparkle when you engage with them. More so than Leo Moons, they enjoy playing.
Although both signs are powerful, Leo Moon is less inclined than Leo Sun to aspire to be a leader. You can tell when a Leo Sun enters a room because they are greeting everyone and are the center of attention. They tend to demand things of others more frequently. Leo Moon is relaxing somewhere with their friends, grinning and smiling naturally. While Leo Sun makes you laugh at their jokes, Leo Moon laughs at yours. Leo Moon is more about emotional strength and is less overtly ambitious than Leo Sun.
Sun in Virgo vs Moon in Virgo
Virgo Sun is away someplace making their case through countless Facebook debates and dissertations. Even while Virgo Suns are meticulous about the things they care about, you can easily see their thought process, which is why they may be quite messy. They learn EVERYTHING and practice nonstop till they master a talent when they wish to invest in it.
If they don’t share their emotional insights with you, you won’t be able to tell a Virgo Moon when you see one. Yes, they are observing and scrutinizing everything you do, but you won’t be aware of this until they cut you off or express their opinion because they believe you have made a serious mistake. Less emphasis is placed on learning new abilities and more on paying close attention to their environment.
Sun in Libra vs Moon in Libra
Actually, Sun in Libra doesn’t seem to care about being liked at all. In fact, people with the Sun in Libra tend to be extremely passionate about several social concerns and get a head start on everyone else when it comes to these topics. They clearly take a social position. They support pursuing justice and standing up for the weak.
The charm is more important to Lunar Libras. They are the ones who grin just the right amount and diffuse interpersonal tensions. They have a tendency to compare themselves to those they know, yet they also project a lack of concern. They sometimes have a much cooler and more refined social vibe than Libra Suns. While Libra Moon is more interested in solitary interactions, including those that could be romantic in nature, Libra Sun seeks to socially align with groups of individuals.
Compare a social justice advocate with the Sun in Libra with a heartbreaker with the Moon in Libra.
Sun in Scorpio vs Moon in Scorpio
The one with the greatest differences is definitely this one. Moon in Scorpio is thus just more ominous. Because they won’t ever confess it, you can’t tell when you meet a Moon in Scorpio. Because they conceal all of their terrifying shit, they can appear really bland and blend in. They are the ones who conceal information from not only their friends and family but even from themselves. In fact, a Scorpio Moon’s love hurts more the closer you are to them. When they feel offended, which happens often, these fuckwits want a lot of time and space and never give up.
The Sun in Scorpio is powerful and fierce. Unlike Scorpio Moons, who never talk about anything, they are utterly devoted to whatever it is they are talking about. Because they are openly interested in deep or edgy topics like the occult or chatting about sex, Scorpio Suns are easy to identify. Scorpio Moon doesn’t have a close-knit circle of people they strive to trust, whereas Scorpio Sun does. The Moon in Scorpio may appear to be more outgoing than the Sun in Scorpio, but they may not genuinely have much faith in any of their friends. While Scorpio Moon is more likely to give their eight-year-old child the quiet treatment, Scorpio Sun is more likely to mobilize the entire community to oppose the misuse of taxes.
Sun in Sagittarius vs Moon in Sagittarius
Similar to the Gemini predicament, the Sagittarius Moon simply feels more relaxed than Sagittarius Suns. Because they are leaning back and taking in the wider picture of a situation, they may actually not care about anything. While Sagittarius Sun is more eager in using their experimenting to address important concerns, they might also be naturally funnier or sillier.
Because Lunar Sags really let loose, drinking with a Sagittarius Moon is different from drinking with a Sagittarius Sun. Sag Moons really want want to party, whereas Sag Suns are extremely into contemplating and philosophizing about the significance of life. Sag Suns are more interested in intellectual pursuits because they are here to disseminate information, establish new institutions, and circulate news. The purpose of Sag Moons is to make fun of everything.
Sun and Moon in Sagittarius are comparable to a preacher and a party animal, respectively.
Sun in Capricorn vs Moon in Capricorn
Because a Capricorn Sun takes everything so seriously that it is obvious on their face, it is much simpler to make fun of them. It might even be as simple as whether or not their books are properly organized. When a Capricorn Moon gets serious, it’s typically about a difficult emotive subject, such mass genocide or the forced sterilization of women of color, making them tougher to tease. Lunar Capricorns tend to bring up serious issues, which might make them a little more unpleasant to be around, but they also have a tendency to take your emotional distress seriously. Cap Sun is far more likely to offer counsel, say something hurtful, or inquire as to why you haven’t moved on yet.
The major distinction between a solar and lunar Capricorn is that whereas a lunar Capricorn seeks to regulate their environment to make themselves comfortable, a solar Capricorn always tries to push themselves beyond of their comfort zone. When they believe something is unfair, Capricorn Moons suppress their anger and starve themselves of approval. They require a larger-than-life image of their emotional issue in order to understand it. Even if it’s simply one instance of you leaving a dish in the sink, Capricorn Suns prepare for emotionally taxing conversations and let you know when something you did falls short of their expectations.
Compare the Capricorn Moon and Sun to your emotionally sluggish friend and your boss, respectively.
Sun in Aquarius vs Moon in Aquarius
More of a nerd is Moon in Aquarius. They may not contact you for a long since they are off doing nerdy things like cosplaying in secret at home or writing a 400,000 word Spock/Kirk fanfiction. This sign doesn’t like to exhibit oneself to the world too much since they feel like a freak on the inside. Additionally, they have a much higher tendency to be self-deprecating or make fun of themselves in front of other people.
Sun in Aquarius is a unique person. They are making a point of being eccentric and flaunting it more in public because they take pride in it. They put together a group of individuals that are a little odd and made the group seem so cool that everyone wanted to follow their lead. Even though Sun in Aquarius has a tendency to be much more haughty, they are the ones that fly the freak flag high and encourage us to accept our differences. When the Moon is in Aquarius and someone is peeing in plastic bottles while surfing 4chan in their bedroom, they are more likely to make a fashion statement out of their craziness. While Aquarius Moons is a form of weird that constantly remains fringe, Aquarius Suns eventually become mainstream, which is a significant cause of problem for them.
Compare the Aquarius Moon with actual social exclusion and the Aquarius Sun with the avant-garde movement.
Sun in Pisces vs Moon in Pisces
While the Moon in Pisces is extremely nave, the Sun in Pisces is quite paranoid. The Pisces Sun is here, residing in a completely different realm, and they are creating their reality much like a work of fiction. Pisces When the mood strikes, Moon excels at evoking intangibly expressive moods and infusing reality with a poetic sensibility, but she often holds fewer illusions than Pisces Sun.
If you do anything kind for someone with a Pisces Sun, they will unavoidably ask why you did it. When you treat someone badly, they will start to believe that you were always after them. If you do the same to the Pisces Moon, they’ll probably never even notice. They are aware of it, but they find it difficult to become emotionally charged. On the other side, Pisces Sun are prone to emotional agitation. While Pisces Sun can ramble on for hours about something without taking any action, Pisces Moon is more likely to genuinely be helpful since they are sitting back and intuiting what a person really needs, even if they are unaware of it. Lunar Pisces is more relaxed, but solar Pisces is much more dramatic.
A feeble moon: What is it?
Our manas, or mind, which governs our senses and generates thoughts and ideas, is represented by the moon, or Chandra. It also goes by the name “Soma,” which means soft and delicate. Moon is a symbol for the mind, mental stability, serenity, motherhood, maternal qualities, emotional quotient (needs and wants), creativity, water and liquids, silver, connection to the masses, psychology, etc. in Vedic astrology.
Meaning of a “Weak” Moon: A weak Moon does not always indicate that it is in a friendly or unfavorable sign. Moon can be positioned in its debilitating sign at a strong degree. It will have an effect, but not in a good way. Therefore, when an astrologer claims that the Moon is weak, he or she is implying that the Moon is depressed or plagued by other planets, which prevents the Moon from completely revealing its results.
WHEN IS A WEAK CAN MOON SAID TO BE: Consider the following when determining whether or not the moon in a person’s chart is weak:
- Check the moon to see if it is waxing or waning. Wanning moon is in a bad way. Wanning describes the period of time when the moon appears to be getting smaller. However, this is not the only issue to consider.
- Either day or night give birth.
- Along with different balas/types of strengths like sthan bal (home placement), kal bal, etc., degrees must be verified.
- It is important to look into any hostile planet damage brought on by aspects or conjunctions.
- Moon is a symbol for our early years and the nurturing environment. The jataka experiences a lack of nurturing and love as a youngster when the moon is weak in the horoscope.
- Relationship with mother- There is little or very little assistance from the mother when the moon is feeble.
- Yogas of Madness and Depression – As we are all aware, the moon brings tranquility and stability. However, when the moon is negatively affected by planets like Rahu, Ketu, or Saturn and is located in a dushtsthana (6th, 8th, or 12th house), it severely depresses the jatak, especially if the lagna is weak or there is no benefic aspect of Jupiter on the moon. Negative thoughts are difficult to restrain when the Moon is feeble. In some instances, it could cause daydreaming, phobias, or hallucinations.
- Temperamental problems can arise when the Moon, which represents the mind, is impacted by planets like the Sun and Mars (which symbolize the fire element). When the Moon is impacted by a malevolent Sun, it can cause false pride in the native, and when it is affected by a malevolent Mars, it can make the native harsh and hostile.
- Low Water Retention – The moon is a symbol for fluids, water, and body water retention. Particularly when planets that produce dryness, like Ketu and Saturn, are affecting the moon or are positioned in its sign of Cancer, when the moon is weak in a horoscope, it results in a lack of water retention in the body.
- Sleep disorder – The effects of the moon are more pronounced at night. Thus, it could make it difficult to sleep.
- Influences creativity – The moon aids in focusing the ideas. Thus, it influences our inventiveness.
- Moon is a symbol for our innocent, childlike attributes that encourage our enthusiasm and playfulness. As a result, when Moon is weak, a person lacks the fervor and drive to pursue something for an extended period of time.
- Moon signifies our emotional quotient and a lack of empathy. It demonstrates how effectively we comprehend both our own emotional needs and those of others.
- Diseases: A feeble moon might interfere with vision. It affects the body’s fluid secretion. It is known to produce phlegm or cough when Rahu is involved and when it is connected to the sixth house. It is known to first and foremost result in issues with the kidneys, urinary system, and lungs, such as bronchitis, typhoid, and neurotic disorders.
