I have a friend who lives in Greece. Ooh, you think, how lovely… warm seas, blue sky, sunshine. Well, this isn’t the case. For the first winter in 10 years, they’ve had snow, it’s freezing and Greek heating systems aren’t built to cope with chilly temperatures.
The friend contracted the flu and hasn’t really recovered and she’s been miserable. I received an email from her today saying, “Me and my twin sis escaping to a spa; taking champagne and scrabble.”
I thought, “oh bless, that’s just what she needs”. My friend has her Moon in Leo and the Moon represents your inner needs, what you require to feel happy and nourished by life on a daily basis. The Moon in Leo needs indulgence (champagne, spa – tick), craves attention (the friend has her twin sis all to herself) and wants to play and have fun (a game of scrabble – sorted).
So what about the rest of us, how can we get our needs met on a daily basis?
Here’s a quick guide to all twelve Moon signs’ needs:
Moon in Aries needs challenge and craves action and passion
Moon in Taurus needs sensual experiences and craves simplicity and laughter
Moon in Gemini needs to talk and craves mental stimulation and gossip
Moon in Cancer needs security and craves food and cuddles
Moon in Leo needs indulgence and craves attention and fun
Moon in Virgo needs order and craves an efficient routine and a healthy body
Moon in Libra needs quality one-on-one time and craves beauty and harmony
Moon in Scorpio needs intensity and craves deep and meaningful insights
Moon in Sagittarius needs freedom and craves travel and exploration
Moon in Capricorn needs to be in control and craves success and progress
Moon in Aquarius needs novelty and craves friendship and gadgets
Moon in Pisces needs inspiration and craves music, poetry and an escape from reality
I have the Moon in Libra and even though I live with the Man, I still need quality one-on-one time. Yes, we are constantly in each other’s company but what I crave is an intimate get-together, a candlelit dinner, a chance to “connect”. We’re going out on Saturday night together, just the two of us – lovely.
