Why is it important for you to know your Moon Sign?

As already stated above, Moon Sign is used to calculate or deduce the Rashifal (Rashiphal) for an individual. Apart from this, Moon sign as per Vedic astrology, plays an important role in determining an individual's behavior. It defines your emotional growth and express 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.

The Moon Sign depending upon its position at the time of your birth also impacts or determines how our senses would work. For an individual, the Moon sign is mostly different from the sun sign, which explains why people with the same sun sign behave differently or have a different personality altogether. E.g Two Taurus people may not agree to the traits described in a book based on sun signs only. Moon Signs are a more accurate description of a personality. A person will have twice the traits of a zodiac sign, if and only if the sun sign and the moon sign for that individual are the same. This is referred to as a "double" such as a "double Aries."

As per the 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 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 have difficulties in coping up with situations and would be unclear of his or her goals.
