･ ｡ﾟ☆: *.☽ .* :☆ﾟ.Dark side of the Moon
Since it's October, I wanted to do more dark themed astrology posts. The dark side of each of the moon signs. Don't worry, I will do a bright side of the moon because each moon deserves to be celebrated. These might come off as harsh but please know that I love each moon deeply from the bottom of my heart. We all have a shadow and light self, these just illuminate the dark.
I've been obsessed with the phrase "Dark side of the moon" since I played the Moonlight Sonata, Chopin Fantasie Impromptu last year. While we are talking about Moon inspired posts here's some famous classical music to listen to while reading this post: Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven (3rd movement), Chopin Fantasie Impromptu and Debussy Clair De Lune. Did you know that Chopin was so inspired by the Moonlight Sonata that he composed the Fantasie Impromptu in C# minor ? Additionally all three lunar pieces are composed in the key of C# minor. The soundtrack of my life is to the key of C# minor okay!

☽ Aries Moon: Impatient by nature, they can be too pushy of themselves or others when it's unnecessary. They need to learn that patience is truly a virtue. The also tend to be quite restless which is annoying for everyone else. They can't sit still and their need for constant change makes others uneasy(esp capricorns OMG). They also don't tend to realize when they are hurting someone. They just think they are "telling the truth" and "being honest". These natives don't mean harm, they just don't think before they speak. They also tend to be bossy when feeling out of sorts, telling everyone else what they need to do and when.
☽ Taurus Moon: Out of the 7 deadly sins, gluttony is Taurus. These natives love the good life - they enjoy feasting on delicious food, relaxing with their loved ones, shopping etc.. Out of all the earth signs they are the laziest and can be sloth like. They just want more - more food, more luxury, more more more without working for it the way Capricorn or Virgo would. They are also a fixed sign so once they feel something they are unlikely to change it. They think they are right even if it is obvious they are wrong.
☽ Gemini Moon: They have fickle emotions as a mutable sign. Ruled by mercury they have a silver tongue 🤪 and can use that to manipulate others. They can also be very moody and quite sarcastic with their barbs. They can also think of themselves as above others. They can also be quite afraid at commitment and anything 'long term' so they will shy away immediately.
☽ Cancer Moon: Cancer Moons are in their domicile since the moon rules Cancer. They are generally in touch with their emotions which is great (especially when you compare it to the moons in detriment or in the fall). However, their dark side is that they can emotionally manipulate others, including their loved ones. They may have learned at a young age to weaponize their tears since it gets them result. They are like the stereotypical crab, they will often deflect and attack others to avoid being attacked themselves. In arguments, Cancer Moons can avoid the subject and deflect. Arguing with a Cancer Moon is not only pointless it can be extremely frustrating.
☽ Leo Moon: Drama Queen alert. Seriously these natives can be some of the most dramatic people you will ever meet. They can actually be extremely insecure about their personality and looks, but instead of acknowledging it they will act holier than thou. Because they are a fixed moon they also don't handle rejection well, so expect fireworks if you reject a Leo Moon. Since Leo is a fire moon they can have fiery tempers that blows up out of nowhere and goes away just as fast.
☽ Virgo Moon: These moon natives can't help but find fault with everything. Intense perfectionists they also avoid their emotions by trying to make everything. else. in. their. life. perfect. They will clean the house instead of working on their emotions, perfect their homework in a subject they are confident on whether than a new subject they struggle at. Oftentimes they can turn to critiquing others just to avoid having to look themselves in the mirror. Learn to let things go, Virgo moons, the more you try to control a situation the more out of control you will feel.
☽ Libra Moon: These natives strive for balance in everything. Since they prefer thinking through everything, Libra moons have a hard time making decisions. From small ones, like a dinner date to big life changing ones, they avoid making decisions forcing others to make them. Libra moons tend to be romantics at heart and some will date for the sake of dating. They can also be quite vain with how they and their partners look. Libras need and want everything in their life to LOOK perfect. Like other air moons, they have a tendency to rationalize their feelings. For Libras, they hate ugly emotions, so will purposely hide their strong emotions in response to social peer pressure.
☽ Scorpio Moon: Poor Scorpio Moons, if they are underdeveloped they can be a nightmare. They just have all these feelings they can't process? They feel so much and so deeply but they have no idea what to do with it. They also usually have mommy issues that they never dealt with. Actually, that's their problem in a nutshell they never deal with their own emotional shit. They can see through other people's emotional shit but they never fix their own. A scorpio moon is a moon at fall, so naturally they find it hard to deal with the moon's energy. Generally speaking, male Scorpio Moons have a harder time compared to female Scorpio Moons.
☽ Sagittarius Moon: These natives are generally easy going, extroverted with an active social life and lots of friends. That same adventurous spirit that makes them a blast to be around can also be dangerous. They can be extremely reckless with their own lives, so focused on the next adventure or adrenaline filled event that they forget everything else. They often find it hard to slow down and function without constant pandemonium.
☽ Capricorn Moon: These people can't relax to safe their life. Everything is a to do lists and goals to them. They embody the lyrics "what a shame they are f***** in the head" from Champagne Problems by Taylor Swift. They have really high standards when it comes to love and they would rather be single than unhappy in a relationship. They also fear intimacy and being close to new lovers so they will self sabotage because they don't want to be emotionally vulnerable. Their shadow side can also lead to care too much about making money and their career leading them to become workaholics. Those who don't learn better life and work balance may find themselves in a loveless marriage with children who don't love them "because I never see mommy/daddy." Money and prestige can never substitute love ❤️, darling!
☽ Aquarius Moon: They can be the definition of flighty. They never stop to think about their true feelings so they literally never know how they feel. They can also be relatively selfish with their time and material things. They only think of others once they have taken care of themselves. Ruled by Uranus in modern astrology, they are not very sensitive and are subject to wild mood swings. One literally never knows how an Aquarius Moon will handle anything. Ruled by Saturn in traditional astrology, they also keep their true feelings to themselves. They are usually more detached compared to Capricorn's stoicism.
☽ Pisces Moon: Here's the thing about Pisces Moon. They are dreamers, ruled by Neptune. But Neptune's shadow side is delusional fantasies. At their worst, Pisces moons live their lives in their dream worlds. They neglect their duties and jobs on this earth. They can also delude themselves into thinking that their wild fantasies can happen. They also don't see anything wrong with little white lies they tell themselves and others. They weave these illusions that not only fool others but fool themselves. The more times they repeat these fake beliefs the more likely they are to start believing them. This is also a moon that can be prone to addictions and falling into bad habits. Neptune definitely has its dark side. But overall, Pisces Moon is a moon in exaltion so its natives find it easier to navigate.
