The Moon is the ruling planet of the Zodiac Sign Cancer.
The cycle of The Moon through the whole 12 Zodiac signs is 28 days. The Moon has the fastest cycle of all the planets. The Moon changes Zodiac Signs every 2 to 2½ days.
The Sun spends 30 days in one Zodiac Sign and in this time The Moon has travelled right around the whole Zodiac and started again. The only time the Sun and the Moon are in the same Zodiac Sign is when we have a New Moon. Therefore, only people born at the time of a New Moon have their Sun Sign and Moon Sign the same. At all other times of the month, these two planets are in different Zodiac Signs. This is brings great differences in characteristics and nature to two people who were born under the same Sun Sign.
To know a person’s Moon Sign, is to really know what they are all about. The Moon Sign shows automatic habit patterns. It shows the characteristics, which are a well defined part of their nature. The person themselves are quite comfortable with this sign.
Most people are born with their Sun and Moon in different Zodiac Signs. If these signs are compatible, it will be easy for the person to develop situations, as they want in life. However if these signs are not compatible, the person will feel as though they are continually fighting an uphill battle. This conflict actually exists within the person and becomes manifested in the circumstances of their life.
This is not a fate that has to be accepted. What has to be developed is a moving away from the automatic habit patterns of the Moon Sign and a moving towards developing the characteristics of the Sun Sign.
Habit patterns are not easily changed because they are well established. Nevertheless, they can be changed. All it takes is knowledge. Once a person knows the reasons they automatically do certain things, they can choose to make alterations. Of course, there can be some habit patterns, which are quite O.K. and don’t need to be changed at all.
