One of the most important pieces of your astrological chart is your moon sign (where the moon was when you were born). The sign reveals much about our habits, reactions, and instincts. It shows how we express, and deal with, our emotions.
The moon moves into a different sign every 2-3 days, which is why for instance, a Aries born April 10 could be quite different from a Aries born April 14. Astrologists believe that the lunar zodiac influences our life, much like the Sun does it.
