There are twelve zodiac signs in astrology. Due to the constant movement of the planets in the celestial sphere, the position of the planets in these signs and houses can be different for everyone.

Sun sign vs Moon sign

The Sun is considered to be the most powerful of all, which has the most profound effect on human beings, but is majorly related to our outer personality than our inner personality. It stays in a zodiac for about 30 days, so while determining one’s personality is easy by knowing his/her date of birth and using sun sign astrology, it is not always the most reliable method. On the other hand it takes about 2.5 days for the Moon to change its zodiac. Studying it allows us to more closely determine the effect of physical, psychological and supernatural influences on our brains. The Sun is what reflects one’s outward personality, the way you present yourself to the world, the Moon however, is the true representation of the inner self, who you really are.

Moon essentially signifies one’s emotional makeup, tendencies, behavior, disposition, interests, dislikes and inner qualities. It also signifies one’s mental health and peace of mind. Furthermore, the daily predictions you read are taken based on the position of the Moon so that you can imagine the kind of impact it has on our daily lives.
