and Link to Moon Signs Calculator
Moon signs are an astrological term indicating which zodiac sign the moon's presence was in during the time of our birth.
You'll know your lunar sign by the date, time and place of your birth. These details indicate the placement of the moon within the 12 zodiac signs when you were born.
For example, if the moon was stationed within the constellation of Sagittarius on your birthday, then....you guessed it, your lunar sign would be Sagittarius.

The page is devoted to the symbolism of moon in astrological signs.
In a nutshell, a moon sign is the polarity of a sun sign (sun signs being the most commonly known, and the sign on which your horoscope in the newspapers is based).
Sun signs are assertive, active, vital, outgoing and these are the personality aspects of ourselves we willingly expose to the world around us. (see Symbolism of the Sun here)
Lunar signs, however are quite the opposite. They represent the unseen, intuitive, emotional, psychic, instinctive perspectives of our personality.
Some astrologists maintain our moon sign represents our unconscious. I don't know if I buy that, because some of us are extremely aware of our moon-side behaviors. And, if we're aware of a thing, we're certainly conscious of it.
I would agree, however, that lunar signs are symbolic of our shadow selves. Those aspects we keep secret. We might even keep some of these aspects secrets from ourselves - and that would certainly go under the category of "unconscious."
Lunar signs are connected with our primitive instinct too, and so a modicum of unconsciousness could be involved here. Many instincts can be judged as distasteful, and so the moon can hide that unpleasant aspect from ourselves.
Many of us are unwilling to investigate our moon signs for fear of touching those dark aspects of ourselves. But just because our lunar personality traits are cloaked, doesn't mean their bad.
This is a common misunderstanding. In fact, we owe it to ourselves to explore our shadow sides. We experience unbalance by not knowing ourselves fully (light and dark) - and that unbalance can represent major problems.
Besides, lunar signs are amazing keys unlocking a myriad of mysteries within us and the world around us.
For example, our lunar sign is also a clue to our maternal instincts as well as traits we may have inherited from our mothers.
There are scads of esoteric doors that our lunar sign holds the key to unlocking.
Learning and exploring your moon sign will aid you in unlocking secrets in the following areas...
After reading that list, it becomes clear why you owe it to yourself to learn your lunar sign and all its implications. Doing so can open up a whole new realm of clarity, perceptive and understanding.
After all, astrology is the ultimate tool for self-discovery.
