The moon plays a very important role in astrology . There is a correspondence between the cycle of the moon and the signs of the zodiac . 

In astrology , the Moon expresses sensitivity, the unconscious , the management of emotions, the part and femininity that everyone carries within themselves. The moon is the side of one's personality that one does not reveal to others.

What is the moon sign?

In a natal chart , several elements are important to clearly define a personality. The sun , symbol of life, indicates the astrological sign . 

The sun sign embodies masculinity and our outer personality. And on the contrary, the moon sign describes our emotional personality and represents our part of femininity. It expresses our inner personality such as the subconscious, sensitivity, instinct.
