What Is The Moon In Astrology?
In your birth chart, the moon represents your emotions, to put it simply. Where the sun is your ego self and dictates your general values and behavior, the moon shows you what you need to feel emotionally fulfilled and what your emotional patterns will be.
Your moon is…
- your emotional patterns
- the part of you closest to your heart that you try to keep safe
- what you need for emotional fulfillment
- what emotions you’ll struggle with (ie emotional volatility, fear, anger, emotional rigidity, etc)
By knowing your moon sign you can…
- be less sensitive to changes in your environment
- nurture yourself and feel loved
- stop repeating emotional patterns
- be aware of your emotions
- improve your relationships (the moon sign is key for relationships!)
- practice self-care
What Is Taurus?
Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac, and it represents material comfort, security, and stability. As the second sign of the zodiac, Taurus represents what happens after we charge the world head-on. Aries, as the initiator, is where we charge life full force, without fear. Taurus is where we learn to slow down, smell the roses, and just enjoy life.
Taurus is represented by the bull, they are persistent, hardworking, and stable. To them, the most important thing in life is comfort, money, and prosperity. They actively seek out material comforts and luxury. Taurus is grounded in themselves, unshakeable to a fault. Driven by their internal compass.
This archetype craves the finer things in life and loves to indulge. Taurus will always be financially responsible. They also love sensual pleasures. They want to feel physically nourished and, in the case of Venus or Mars being in Taurus, make their partner feel physically nourished.
Taurus is very connected to the 5 senses and it’s extremely important that they feel pleased in their senses at all times.

Resistance To Change
Taurus is a sign that values stability and routine, and with your Moon in Taurus, you may struggle with change or uncertainty. You may have a hard time adapting to new situations or may feel anxious or overwhelmed when your routine is disrupted.
Because the Taurus moon likes to keep everything under control, they can often ignore when they are having their boundaries pushed or need unmet. This leads them to emotional outbursts and aggression.
Focusing Too Much On Security
As mentioned above, Taurus is an earth sign that values ownership. Because of this, they can get caught up in chasing the next material gain constantly. This can keep their experiences limited.
