creates the perfect backdrop for a budding romance. Lyricists feature
the Moon in their love songs. Romance novelists
describe the Moon’s ethereal qualities to stimulate characters’ dreamy
moods and pursuit of love—couples walking hand-in-hand on a moonlit beach
and lovers sharing their first kiss under a shimmering moonbeam. The Moon is definitely about feelings.
sign at your birth describes your feelings, early life influences and
emotional barometer. As you mature, the intuitive nature of the Moon ideally
draws you to individuals who understand you and nurture your feelings.
When that is not the case in a romantic relationship, you may feel emotionally
detached and misunderstood by your partner. Moon sign compatibility is
an important factor in love. You need to be able to show your feelings
in the other’s presence or the relationship crumbles.
astrological signs are divided by element: fire, earth, air and water.
Individuals with Moons in harmonious elements seem to get along better
in relationships. A greater chance of compatibility occurs when fire and
air Moons or earth and water Moons connect in relationships. The following
overview will help you examine how these elements work.
signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) ardently pursue their love interests.
That means passion with a capital “P,” and it applies to both sexes. They
fall in love easily and are deeply aware of their charms. They have a
strong need to be admired and appreciated for their attentiveness. Flattery
from a love object is their Achilles heel. They have a tendency to dominate
partners emotionally and show a strong streak of independence if a partner
tries to collar them. Fire sign Moons are among the most enthusiastic
when the flames of love are forming, and very deeply wounded when a relationship
ends. When the love bug bites a fire sign Moon, a little drama enters
the life of the beloved. In return for the affection and romance they
desire, fire Moons shower loved ones with unusual gifts, surprise vacations
and adoration. Fires have a healthy emotional drive and express it positively.
Although quick-tempered and somewhat impulsive, the fire Moons put new
meaning into kissing and making up after an argument. For a relationship

of the Earth
inventory of their emotional needs, the earth Moons (Taurus, Virgo and
Capricorn) look for grounded partners who appreciate security and long-term
commitment. They are at peace when financial security is assured and they
can take the plunge toward marriage and a family without pinching pennies.
The earth types want partners to look out for, but not necessarily balance
their checkbooks. Most members of this Moon group are highly ambitious
and achievement-oriented. Partners who value earth’s work ethics flutter
their heartstrings. Although earths tend to be outwardly reserved, they
appreciate a partner with a sense of humor who breaks the ice when they
are at a loss for words. Earth Moons put time and dollars into self-development.
Both the outgoing and quiet among them pay close attention to details.
Make the most of it and you could team up in games of trivia or compete
for quiz shows like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. If you
desire a conscientious soul mate who appreciates a little bit of heaven
on Earth, give your heart to the steady flame of an earth Moon.
the air element (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) like to communicate with
partners, and are emotionally in touch with humanity. They prefer intellectual
rapport and friendship with love partners. Count on witty comments, e-mail
and plenty of telephone calls from your air Moon dates. In truth, they
often fantasize about their love life and spend considerable time daydreaming
about the perfect mate. Getting them to commit is another story. If you
are dating an air Moon, expect an active social life and a variety of
mind-expanding experiences. They are sensitive to the attitudes and reactions
of their contacts, especially love and marriage partners. Airs benefit
from harmonious relationships, otherwise nervous tension affects their
health. Air types relate to lovers who value their intelligence and problem-solving
skills. A light-hearted, attentive partner helps the freedom-loving air
Moon make the transition from thinking about it to jumping on board the
signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces) bring depth and intensity to their
emotional makeup. Water’s love life is strongly colored by family experiences
and the early childhood scene. If those life chapters have been nurturing,
they are receptive to committed relationships. Security is important to
their psyches. Water Moons of either sex seldom ignore their mates. They
tend to smother partners with tender loving care. Besides, their innate
sixth sense gives them the inside track on the moods and feelings of significant
others. Members of this Moon group are tactile and sensual. Waters enjoy
mood music, aromatherapy, the hot tub and a gentle massage. Depending
on their temperament, they can be a bit jealous if someone else is eyeing
their mate. They suffer deeply from rejection and need to avoid a detached
type of lover who flirts openly or ignores the water at social events.
Water Moons need partners with intuitive insight who discover their internal
secrets and match their attitudes about feeling and intimacy.
and a half days, the “mood” of the Moon changes as it travels through
another of the twelve signs of the zodiac. The phases of the Moon, however,
depict the emotional charges individuals experience. A date on the New
Moon may signal the beginning of a romance; the Second Quarter Moon shows
the lovers evaluating their feelings. The Full Moon heightens emotions
and could be very passionate. Sometimes the last, or Fourth Quarter, brings
about release of tension between the couple, or if compatibility is lacking,
an ending to the relationship. Count on the Moon to help you recognize
and define your feelings.
