As you further explore astrology, you'll come across moon signs. What are moon signs, and how do they influence the person you are? And, if you're a Libra Moon, what does that say about you? Sun signs get most of the attention, but moon signs can help you learn more about the hidden, private sides of your personality.
Read this guide to learn all about what moon signs are in astrology and how you can find your own moon sign. We'll then focus specifically on Libra moons and explain how your moon sign affects everything from how you feel about yourself to what you're most afraid of. We end with an overview of the personality traits of a Libra moon with each of the 12 sun astrology signs.
What Are the Astrology Moon Signs?
What do we mean when we talk about moon signs? Even some astrology experts don't know much about moon signs because they're much less discussed than sun signs. You can determine your sun sign based on your birth date; sun signs (also known as star signs) are generally just referred to as "signs." So, if you were born on, say, June 6th, then your sun sign is Gemini and you'll likely tell people you're a Gemini when asked about your sign. Each sun sign lasts about a month, although the months don't match up perfectly with the standard Gregorian calendar that most of the world uses.
Moon signs (sometimes called natal moon signs) are a bit more complicated. They refer to the position of the moon in the sky at the time of your birth. Compared to the sun, which passes through each of the zodiac signs once a year, the moon moves more quickly and passes through each zodiac sign once a month. This means that the moon moves into a different zodiac sign about every 2 to 2.5 days. Therefore, to know your moon sign with full confidence, you need to know the exact time of your birth (although knowing just morning/afternoon/evening can work in a pinch) as well as your city of birth. The moon can be in one position in the morning and move to another position that puts it into a different sign by the evening. Once you have this information, you can learn your zodiac moon sign here.
If you have a Libra moon sign, this means that, at the moment of your birth, the moon was in the Libra position. Your moon sign can influence quite a bit about your personality, even though they aren't nearly as widely discussed as sun signs.
Knowing your moon sign will help you learn more about your inner self. While your sun sign affects how you appear to others and what you aspire to be (such as your personality, how you interact with groups, your future goals, etc.) your moon sign tells you more about internal, private characteristics. You can study it to learn more about your emotional energy, natural instincts, common anxieties, hidden fears, and what you need to feel secure in the world. Your moon sign will influence how you interact with others (especially in close relationships), how you view the world, and how you feel about yourself.
Libra Moon Traits
How does having a Libra moon sign influence the type of person you are and the decisions you make? If your moon sign is Libra , it means you also have Libra qualities in addition to the qualities your sun sign gives you. You can learn all about the Libra sign here, but in this section, we'll specifically discuss how having a full moon in Libra sign will impact you, as opposed to a Libra sun sign. As we mentioned above, moon signs primarily impact the inner, private self, as well as close relationships.
Libra Moon Sign: How You View YourselfYour moon sign has a big impact on what you think of yourself, and, if you're a Libra moon, you're probably feeling pretty positively about things! Having a Libra moon sign will make even the most pessimistic sun sign feel that the world isn't so bad after all. And, since you're part of the world, you must be pretty great yourself! Your solid sense of self-esteem, however, won't allow you to rest on your laurels. Having Libra either as a sun or moon sign gives you a highly attuned sense of justice, and you believe it's your duty to correct unfairness wherever you see it. You can sometimes be hard on yourself when you feel you aren't doing enough to make the world a better place, but, even in those moments, you're confident that you're a good person who is doing your best.
Libra Moon Sign: Fears
If you have a Libra moon sign, it generally adds positive qualities to your life. However, moon signs also often contribute to personal fears, and a Libra moon sign is no exception. Libra moons generally have two overarching fears: being alone and making the wrong decision. Even if your sun sign is introverted, having a Libra moon sign will push you a bit towards extroversion. You might love the idea of spending time alone, but do it too much and you'll really start to crave the company of other people. Having any sort of Libra sign means you get comfort and happiness from being around others. Spend too much time alone and you often become gloomy and feel that there is something unlikable about you.
At times, you'll also fear making the wrong choice. Having a Libra moon sign means you care deeply about fairness and making things as equitable as possible for people. While these are noble goals, sometimes you believe in them so strongly that you freeze up when it comes time to make a decision because the consequences of making the wrong choice seem so big. Fortunately, you can overcome both fears with the same solution: being around people who care about you. They'll brighten your mood, boost your confidence, and show you that things aren't so serious after all.
Libra Moon Sign: ComfortsHaving a Libra moon generally makes you just a bit happier than you would be without it, but you still need to turn to favorite comforts from time to time. And one of the biggest Libra moon traits is a love of being around people. For Libra moons, it's not so much what they're doing that brings them comfort, it's who they're doing it with. The more people around them, the happier they are. If your sun sign trends towards introversion, your natural instinct may be to hole up alone at home when you need comfort. However, try gathering a group of friends around you next time; it might be just the thing to raise your spirits! And once you have the group assembled? Anything goes really, though having a Libra moon sign means indulgent treats like shopping sprees and spa days are common favorites.
Libra Moon Sign: How You View Close Relationships
Libra moons love being around people, and they generally have wide circles of friends they can call at any time. Your Libra moon sign means you care a lot about others, so you make a great friend and, even if you're more introverted, people like you once they get to know you. With Libra moons, the trouble arises with serious romantic relationships. Having any Libra sign means you're going to be a bit afraid of commitment. Not because you aren't happy with your partner, but because there are so many potential options out there that you don't want to give up on them right away. You know this can make you a not-so-great partner and you probably experience some guilt over that.
If your sun sign is known for being good at long-term relationships, it may be enough to overcome this Libra moon tendency, but if your sun sign also gets a bit claustrophobic at the thought of only being with one person for the rest of your life, you'll have to put in some extra work to overcome this and make important relationships last.
Sun Pairings With Libra Moon Sign
If you've ever felt that certain parts of your personality don't match your sun sign, it might be because you're not taking your moon sign into account. Your sun sign usually dominates your personality, but moon signs also influence who you are. Below are brief personality overviews of each sun sign paired with a Libra moon. So, if you were born on February 10th and learned there was a moon in Libra during your birth, you'd look at Aquarius Sun + Libra Moon sign to see what the pairing says about you and your Libra moon traits.
Aries Sun + Libra MoonLibras and Aries get along famously when they're in a group, but when a person has this sun/moon pairing, it can cause a bit of trouble. Both signs are known for being impulsive and reckless, so when an Aries has a Libra moon, there's simply no aspect of their personality willing to tap on the breaks. They can be the life of the party until they take things just a little too far. (Fortunately, both signs are also very popular, so their friends will forgive their bad decisions.)
Gemini Sun + Libra MoonSmiley, social, and super bad at making decisions. That's what a Gemini sun and Libra moon will get you. These people will waft through life, making tons of friends and having tons of fun, but they can freeze up when they need to make an important choice. Fortunately, their judgement is usually good, so they can get back to doing what they do best: enjoying life.
Taurus Sun + Libra MoonTaureans are infamous for being stubborn and digging their heels in once they've made a decision, even if they later realize it was the wrong one. A Taurus with a Libra moon will be a bit more fair-minded and concerned with making others happy. This can cause them to be both happier and less abrasive to other people. As a bonus, the Libra tendency to kick back and relax helps tone down Taurus' all-work-and-no-play qualities, further creating a bull sign who is just a little more laid-back and happier than the rest.
Cancer Sun + Libra MoonThere's potential for a lot of different possibilities here. Cancers are emotional empaths who can sometimes get overwhelmed by their feelings. A Libra moon can help them keep some of those emotions in check and enjoy themselves a bit more. However, Libra flightiness and desire to jump from one thing to another can clash with the natural Cancer desire to avoid change and stick with the status quo. If a person with this pairing can't sort out their contrasting sun and moon signs, they may struggle with these competing traits and have difficulty making decisions they feel confident about.
Leo Sun + Libra MoonA Leo sun with a Libra moon can be summed up with one word: compassionate. Both Leos and Libras are highly social, thoughtful, and charismatic. They're always thinking of others and enjoy surrounding themselves with large groups of friends. And because both signs are popular with others, they never have trouble finding people who want to spend time with them.
Virgo Sun + Libra MoonBoth Virgos and Libras are naturally kind and creative, so this pairing will result in people who come up with all sorts of smart solutions for helping others. The Libra sense of optimism can also get Virgos to loosen up and enjoy themselves more. However, Virgos generally pride themselves on being very rational and in control of their feelings, and throwing a Libra moon (with its flighty and sometimes immature qualities) into the mix can create some inner turmoil.
Libra Sun + Libra MoonA double Libra pairing means that all Libra traits will be particularly strong. People who have Libra for both their sun and moon signs will be painstakingly fair, super social, ultra optimistic, and, well, pretty lazy at times. Because their sun and moon signs are the same, these people won't have much internal conflict and will feel confident in many of the decisions they make. However, because they don't have a contrasting moon sign to balance out their sun sign, some of the negative Libra traits (indecisiveness, materialism, etc.) can be difficult to overcome.
Scorpio Sun + Libra MoonPeople with this sun/moon pairing will need to have patience with themselves, but it often works out well in the end. These two signs are highly different, and adding a Libra moon's optimistic, outgoing, and highly fair qualities to Scorpio's more introverted and moodier traits can create a lot of inner confusion. However, the older Scorpio suns + Libra moons get, the more in-tune with themselves they get. They become more comfortable with their contrasting qualities and see the benefits they bring: having a Libra moon often makes a Scorpio happier and focused less on themselves. It just takes a bit of work to get there!
Sagittarius Sun + Libra MoonA person with this sun/moon pairing can have a lot of fun, as well as a lot of problems. The combination of Sagittarius and Libra signs results in a lot of intelligence and natural curiosity about the world. These people are generally lifelong learners, always looking to expand their knowledge. However, both signs are also often commitment-phobic, so they may jump from relationship to relationship, full of natural charisma but never able to make things stick with one person.
Capricorn Sun + Libra MoonCapricorns and Libras really don't have much in common, but that doesn't mean this is a bad sun/moon pairing. Poor Capricorns feel they need to keep their nose to the grindstone in order to feel worthy, and their intensity and ambition can turn a lot of other signs off. Fortunately, having a Libra moon can soften those edges by making Capricorns just a little bit more carefree and fun-loving. They won't be the life of the party, but at least they'll show up to it. Additionally, Capricorns really care about people, but struggle to show it, and a bit of Libra charisma will make their empathetic qualities shine through more strongly.
Aquarius Sun + Libra MoonThis sun/moon pairing is wholly dedicated to self-expression. Both Libras and Aquarians highly value honesty, and when put together, you end up with people who are always true to themselves and not afraid to show the world who they really are. Both are also hugely empathetic and will do whatever they can to help others, with no expectation of receiving anything in return.
Pisces Sun + Libra Moon
A Pisces sun + Libra moon pairing has its pros and cons. On the positive side, a dash of Libra optimism is often just what often-tearful Pisces need to feel a bit happier and more confident in themselves. Both signs are also thoughtful, loyal and make great friends and romantic partners. However, both can be emotionally closed off and prone to impulsive decisions. Without a counteracting sign to lessen those negative traits, people with this pairing can get themselves into some tricky situations that damage relationships.
