13 Feb Female? Your Sign Might be Less Accurate Than You Think

Female? Your Sign Might be Less Accurate Than You Think

No, it’s not something silly like maybe the universe moved a few degrees off because you were born female. And it’s not that your personality changed because NASA said so.

The difference between male and female charts lies in where most of the identity is derived from. In astrology the concept of ‘identity’ is associated with the Sun. What most people know as their ‘sign’ is merely the zodiac position of the Sun at the time of their birth.

(May Sim is a Taurus because the Sun was in the direction of Taurus at the time of her birth)

So I’m ‘a Taurus’, and the usual words that sign is associated with are ‘steady, predictable, practical, indulgent, conservative’ etc. and generally I’d say those words aren’t off as descriptions of me, but there’s something missing from the description.  Taurus has a certain placidity, an immovability that doesn’t ring true for someone who’s taken some amount of risk, and not always for monetary gain.

What I’ve found over time is that women actually act a lot more like their Moon sign. The Moon in astrology is associated with emotions, security, family, home etc. and while not every woman identifies with the traditional feminine identity (I certainly don’t), but the Moon is the feminine part of our psyche, and most women would identify more with the sign that the Moon is in.

You can see from the chart above that my Moon’s in Capricorn, another sign in the Earth element, so the traits like practicality and conservatism are similar to Taurus (because those are Earth traits), but Capricorn also adds a flavour of impersonality, control, leadership, ambition, rigidity and achievement-orientedness  that is frankly much more characteristic of me.

Let’s have a look at some famous women to see if this holds true:

Oprah Winfrey

article-0-210dcf4400000578-230_634x477

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(socially-conscious, rebellious, eccentric, humanitarian, unpredictable) (idealistic, philosophical, liberal, preachy, big-picture, honest, restless)

 

Comments 

Sure we see the socially-conscious, humanitarian part of Oprah, but have you seen her shows? They can get pretty preachy, and is also very strong on her personal philosophy and ethics.

 


Marilyn Monroe

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(trendy, intelligent, scatterbrain, unreliable, eloquent, playful, witty, funny) (socially-conscious, rebellious, eccentric, humanitarian, unpredictable)

 

Comments 

The Gemini archetype pretty much has Marilyn Monroe as its classic poster girl, but descriptions of Monroe from those around her also reveal a detached, eccentric and unpredictable personality.

 


Audrey Hepburn

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(steady, patient, stubborn, predictable, practical, indulgent, conservative) (dreamy, imaginative, escapist, intuitive, compassionate, vulnerable)

 

Comments 

Hepburn is one of the world’s most famous symbols of classic Taurean indulgence (Breakfast at Tiffany’s, anyone?), but rather than the steady bull, Hepburn is much more associated with the dreamy, vulnerable characters she seem to play so often and her later work with UNICEF.

 


Beyonce

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(perfectionistic, analytical, practical, organised, fussy, helpful, low-key) (intense, controlled, passionate, secretive, mysterious, charismatic, powerful)

 

Comments 

No doubt it takes organisation and detail-orientedness to be a good entertainer (Michael Jackson was a Virgo too), but did you notice her alter ego’s named Sasha Fierce? Her campaign for female empowerment and keeping her relationship with Shawn Carter private are all also classic Scorpio.

 


Aung San Suu Kyi

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(trendy, intelligent, scatterbrain, unreliable, eloquent, playful, witty, funny) (harmonious, indecisive, diplomatic, graceful, intellectual, beautiful, elegant)

 

Comments 

Not quite your next-door bimbo, Aung San Suu Kyi is a whiz at languages (she speaks four fluently), but she is way better known for her personal grace and diplomatic political efforts in Myanmar, enduring house arrest for years and maintaining the use of peaceful means in politics.

 


Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge

Sun Sign

Moon Sign

(impersonal, cautious, reserved, disciplined, ambitious, responsible, traditional) (sensitive, protective, nurturing, shy, sympathetic, traditional, tenacious)

 

Comments 

While the Duchess has clearly done an admirable job of taking on royal duties and responsibilities, maintaining a wonderfully reserved and formal demeanor for years, she’s actually more known nowadays for her role as a traditional woman – royal status aside, she’s shown herself to be primarily a wife and mother.

 


More than just constituting a blend of sign traits to form a full personality (after all, all the planets blend to form the personality, not just the Sun and Moon) for women the Moon sign actually describes how she decides to demonstrate her feminine personality.

(I’ve found that men identify better with the Sun sign)

What’s your Moon sign, and do you identify more with it than your Sun sign? Not sure how to find your Moon sign?
