Birth Details to Calculate Your Moon Sign
What is Moon Sign?
With the constantly changing positions of planets in space, their placement in the signs and houses changes as well. The Moon sign of an individual is determined by the placement of the moon at the time of their birth, while the sign where the Sun was placed at the time of birth is a person’s Sun sign.
Vedic astrology lays more emphasis on Moon sign, compared to a person’s Sun Sign. Thus, the Rashi Phal or Rashifal, which is the daily prediction for an individual as per Vedic astrology, is also calculated according to their moon sign. While the effect of the Sun majorly concerns external personality traits, the Moon sign describes your unconscious and instinctive reactions. The moon sign determines your natural or inborn side. This part is inherited primarily from your mother, or reflects the feminine part of you. It predicts the kind of experiences you would want to go through in order to feel emotionally satisfied.

How is Moon Sign calculated?
The Moon Sign Calculator determines which zodiac sign was the moon placed in at the time of your birth. It is done taking into account the date, time and place of an individual’s birth. Your Moon sign cannot be calculated solely from your date of birth, as is done with the Sun sign. This is because the sun takes twelve months to travel through the twelve zodiac signs, which means it stays in one zodiac for only a month. Moon, on the contrary, makes quick transitions and takes only around twenty eight days to complete its travel cycle through the twelve signs. It stays in a sign for around fifty four hours (approximately two and a half days). The laws of the moon's motion are quite complicated, and to find your moon sign requires expertise in reading special moon motion tables. The conclusion involves a complex algorithm.
Our Moon Sign Calculator has been crafted with the help of experts, both astrologers and programmers, so that you can instantly find your moon sign by simply punching in your date, time and place of birth. Through mPanchang’s Moon Sign Calculator, you can find all that you wish to know about your Moon Sign.
Why is it important to know your Moon Sign?
As mentioned already, the Moon Sign is used to calculate or deduce the Rashifal (Rashiphal) for an individual. In Vedic astrology, Moon sign also plays an important role in determining an individual’s behavior. It defines your emotional growth and expresses the unconscious side of your personality. This is where we fall back for comfort, childhood memories, and peace. This also defines the mode and extent of your anger, hate, jealousy and fear. With its quick movement, the moon affects your life more than other planets, including the sun.

The moon, depending on its position at the time of your birth, also impacts or determines how our senses would work. Given the difference in effects that the placement of the moon and the sun have on an individual, no two individuals with the same Sun sign would behave the same or have similar personalities. For example, two people under the Taurus Sun sign may not exhibit the traits described in a book based only on Sun signs. Moon signs are a more accurate description of a personality. But some people may have the same Sun and Moon signs, something known as the ‘double sign’. Such people will exhibit twice the traits of a zodiac sign.
As per Vedic astrology, the Moon also defines or governs body parts such as the heart, bladder, stomach, brain, bowels and the left eye. It is also believed to have an influence over the glands and fluids of your body.
When the Sun sign and Moon Sign complement each other, then an individual has the capability to slide swiftly through tough times. On the contrary, when they are incompatible, an individual will find it difficult to cope with situations and would be unsure of his/her goals.
