Moon in Houses

The Moon in Houses: all the characteristics of the Moon in astrology, when placed in any of the twelve astrological houses.

Natal Moon in the 12th House

An individual with natal Moon in the 12th house is always extremely sensitive to external currents, highly intuitive and with a tendency to hide their emotions. This placement can make the individual quite vulnerable, but also bring gifts of clairvoyance. The 12th house is traditionally ruled by Pisces and Neptune, a sign and planet that are rather passive and feminine, deeply connected with water. The Moon is strongly connected with the water triplicity as it rules Cancer and is not debilitated as it does in fiery placements. Nevertheless, as the 12th house is the Achilles’ heel of the natal chart, such a placement can be quite dangerous and troublesome. The gates towards other realities are quite open when the Moon is placed in the 12th house, and this is even…

Natal Moon in the 11th House

When an individual has his natal Moon in the 11th house, his self-esteem and emotions are strongly linked to his friends and activities that he experiences with them. A well-aspected Moon is great for socializing, while difficult aspects may create quite a lot of issues concerning oversensitivity. When the Moon is located in the house of groups, it will bring a lot of females as friends. The feminine energy will be prevailing in organizations that the native is a part of, and the overall atmosphere of group activities will be rather sentimental. The friends and the native have an intense emotional need of belonging to a group, and social gatherings nourish them. As the Moon and sign Cancer are traditionally ruling the 4th house which represents one’s home, the groups…Read More

Natal Moon in the 10th House

When a native has natal Moon in the 10th house, he is feeling rather emotional about his public image and is overly concerned about how other people perceive him. This placement can be quite good for all female type jobs, while can also bring fame, even temporarily. The Moon is in detriment in the 10th house, because the house’s ruler is Capricorn; the sign that opposes Cancer, the natural realm of the Moon. Thus, even a well-aspected Moon will function in weakened ways. Nevertheless, it is still a good placement, and can even bring fame and a good public image. As the Moon is the quickest celestial object, the benefits it grants to the house matters are of a fluctuating nature and do not last long. The positive thing is… Read More

Natal Moon in the 9th House


With the Moon in the house of higher philosophy, the native develops high spiritual and moral values. This placement gives a person whose soul strives to feel, give and receive through religion, justice or spirituality. Their beliefs contain a lot of emotions, and this sensitivity towards what they believe to be higher than them makes them dedicated to that cause. The Moon in the 9th house can indicate moving to live in a different country than where the native was born. As the Moon rules the mother, there is a possibility of having a mother from a different nation, religion or race than the father. This position will definitely bring a foreigner as a husband or wife if the cusp of the 7th house falls in the Cancer sign. As…

Natal Moon in the 8th House


When a person has his natal Moon in the 8th house, his mind can transcend to the outer realms quite easily, making it possible to manipulate energy for magical use. There will be a constant battle between darkness and light in the native’s mind, as the Moon here will many times express its dark side. The Moon is the quickest celestial body, and its placement in the 8th house indicates quite a lot of sexual partners. This does not mean that the native will have a lot of casual sex; quite the contrary is what happens. The native desires emotional security, and its placement in the eighth house will make him yearn for deep feelings. There can be some sort of insecurity concerning sex, and the native may quickly rush…

Natal Moon in the 7th House


Having the Moon in the 7th house has a drastic effect on partnerships and everything that has to do with unification. Should it be marriage, a stable business relationship, or other types of contract, the light of the Moon gives a special hue to these matters. The feminine energy of the Moon makes an individual drawn to relations and blending with another soul, preferring avoiding any type of solitary activity. The need for emotional support and fulfillment is strongly present. The Moon is the fastest-moving celestial body. As such, this can bring hastiness and instability in the house it is located. With the Moon in the 7th house, this could result in jumping from one relationship to another, many times having delusions that the significant other is the one and…

Natal Moon in the 6th House


When the Moon is located in the 6th house of a natal chart, its swift motion can bring frequent changes in jobs that the native follows. This placement creates the workaholic and the person that sticks to a daily routine, while is also probably the best for a cook. The Moon is the celestial body responsible for food and its preparation; thus a native with the Earth’s satellite in the house of work will probably choose such an occupation. This placement does not have to do with cooking only though. It can bring jobs connected with packaging food, grocery stores, hotels, catering, fast food, etc. The Moon does not provide a lot of stability, and this individual will experience a lot of changes in workplaces. In a woman’s chart, this…

Natal Moon in the 5th House


Having your Moon in the house of love, recreation and children is quite a good natal placement. The house is traditionally ruled by Leo and the Sun; thus the Moon is illuminated and very active, while also can behave in a rather theatrical way. As the 5th house rules children, the presence of the Moon makes the native rather fertile. In case that the Moon is also located in a fruitful sign such as Taurus, Cancer, Pisces, Scorpio or Sagittarius, the native has even more possibilities of having children. The Moon in the 5th house, in most cases, gives a female first child. In any case, the child will have a very strong Cancer/Moon emphasis in its natal chart and will be very sentimental and emotional. Generally, the native with…

Natal Moon in the 4th House


When the Moon is located in the 4th house of a natal chart, its position is considered a very fortunate one. The 4th house is traditionally ruled by Cancer, and its ruling planet Moon, so the Earth’s satellite is actually residing at its own home. People whose Moon resides there are the lucky ones to feel the mother’s love at its top. This natal placement denotes a sensitive, nourishing and emotional mother that gives a lot of care and tenderness to the native. She has a strong Cancer/Moon emphasis in her chart, great abilities of cooking, raising her children and housekeeping. This type of mother will usually breastfeed her child longer than others and will continue cooking for the native even when he becomes an adult. There is a strong…

Natal Moon in the 3rd House

Having the Moon in the house of communication creates a very receptive mind, capable of absorbing large quantities of information. Thus, such a native can amass a huge load of data among many subjects, picking up new languages, even providing a talent for imitating other people’s voices and images. The Moon helps a lot in reflecting and re-projecting external patterns, and when in aspect with planets responsible for art, then this placement can produce great artists. The same applies if a stellium of planets is found near the Moon, and whatever the nature of these planets, the native will tend to participate in some manual activities. This could be from sculptor to car mechanics, but this will definitely give them some abilities and even accuracy in doing anything with their…

Natal Moon in the 2nd House

When an individual has the second house of his natal chart occupied by the Moon, everything connected to his wealth and belongings becomes extremely important for his security. The presence of the Moon in the 2nd house makes the individual sensitive concerning financial matters and usually makes his income fluctuating frequently, just like the tide of the sea. The origin of this pattern might come from the mother, who has also been rather insecure concerning money or at least was during the native’s childhood. The mother was emotionally attached both to the child and to her house, and the native with the Moon in the 2nd house will frequently spend his money on items used for cooking. Other expenses include decorations for his home and furniture. In case that Venus…Read More

Natal Moon in the 1st House

When the Moon is located in the 1st house of a natal chart, the native becomes a sensitive and intuitive person. Feelings are very important for him, and he can be rather hasty in his reactions, deciding his movements without depending on logic and common sense but rather on his intuition. They are rather passive, except if a strong masculine planet is present in the first house. Their behavior is quite moody and changeable – this is due to the fast movement of the Earth’s satellite. Their feelings are fluctuating in the same way that the sea tide does; there is a monthly pattern that more or less reappears. Even in Male horoscopes, it gives to the individual, bio-cycles connected with the Lunar calendar instead of the Solar one. Any…Read More
