However your emotions are, you can be sure that the moon has a hand in it. You can call the moon “Ruler of emotions” and you wouldn’t be wrong because the position of the moon when you were born determines your emotional makeup, how you express your feelings and how you respond to the emotions of others. But the moon governs more than our emotions, it is responsible for fertility, childbirth and pregnancy as well, and since it is the closest planet to earth, its impact is felt more intensely, almost like the effect a mother has on her child, or even more.
But beyond that, your relationship with the maternal influences in your life is drawn from the moon. It is the soul behind your most hidden parts, and like the Sun, whether the moon is your air, earth, fire or water sign, that is what will determine the full extent to which it manifests its strength in your life, and which of your emotions will be strongest: Is it the way you deal with pain, is it how you express anger, or how you react to the grief or sadness of others? It all depends on the nurturing wave of the moon.
