The Moon represents your inner emotions and subconscious world in astrology. It is part of the “big three” — your Sun Sign, Moon Sign, and Rising Sign. Your Sun sign is your overall personality and how you “shine.” Your Rising Sign is the face you show to the world.
In astrology, aspects occur when the planets interact with each other on the 360° zodiac wheel in a natal, synastry, composite, or transit chart. Planets form different angles to each other that combine their energies.
Conjunctions occur when two items in an astrology chart are right on top of each other. An orb describes the degree of exactness of an aspect in astrology. Conjunctions have an allowable orb of 10°. That means that the two bodies can be up to 10° off from exact and still be a conjunction.
A conjunction is generally an easeful aspect that allows the two bodies involved to team up their energies and build each other up. The energy flows between the two because they are so close together. Astrologers generally consider conjunctions to be a positive aspect.
Natal Moon Conjunct Aspects in Astrology
Other planets and important points in a natal astrology chart that aspect with your natal Moon affect how your emotions show up and how you deal with them. These aspects can also speak to which emotions are at the forefront of your expression, and which ones you bury deeply.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Sun
With this aspect, you are likely very intuitive. The seat of your subconscious is aligned with your conscious mind and ego. You probably often do things just by feeling out if “the vibe” is right. You don’t have as many inner struggles as other people, but once in a while you can become a little lost in your own inner world and forget that other people exist.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Mercury
With your natal Moon conjunct your natal Mercury, you love to talk about your feelings. However, that doesn’t mean you necessarily feel your feelings. You are probably a verbal processor. You need to talk things out with a friend to understand them. You have a tendency to rationalize your feelings away. Journaling can be a helpful tool for you to become more in touch with your emotions.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Venus
People with natal Moon conjunct natal Venus are typically charming and intuitive in relationships. You are a good listener and great at giving advice. However, you tend to go along with whatever other people say rather than assert your own opinions because you want to avoid conflicts. You get emotional comfort from physical comfort and beauty, so you probably have a distinct sense of style in fashion and interior decor.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Mars
You’re probably an emotionally passionate person with your natal Moon conjunct your natal Mars. You feel deeply and have no problem expressing anger, excitement, and frustration. Other emotions might get a little stopped or transmuted into one of the aforementioned ones, making you come across as overly candid sometimes. You’re likely an intuitively sexual person who listens to your lovers and leaves them satisfied but wanting more of you.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Jupiter
You’ve got a lot of spirit with your natal Moon conjunct natal Jupiter. You’re also a very generous person with both physical and emotional resources. However, people can take advantage of your kindness. Sometimes holding boundaries with your generosity is a bit difficult for you. You have a generally optimistic outlook. While you do have your down moments, you’re able to get yourself out of them relatively quickly.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Saturn
When your natal Moon collides with your natal Saturn, the planet of restriction, structures, and boundaries, you can be a somewhat restrained person. You are very responsible and feel a sense of duty even in situations that you resent. Your lesson in this life is to assert your real desires and allow people to be responsible for themselves. You can’t hold things together for everyone all of the time.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Uranus
If your natal Moon is conjuncting your natal Uranus, you are sensitive to feeling emotionally restrained. You need the freedom to approach emotional issues in a way that feels natural. Your feelings may fluctuate unexpectedly. If you feel the same thing for too long, you might get bored or depressed. Because of this, you may seem to change your mind frequently to others.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Neptune
You may be a dreamy, emotional, and compassionate person with your natal Sun conjunct your natal Neptune. Being of service to others brings you genuine emotional satisfaction. Depending on other aspects in your chart, you can be prone to sadness and seeing yourself as a victim. Regardless, you are very much “in your feels.” Your emotions, both positive and negative, rule your behavior, and you don’t always think things through logically.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Pluto
With your Moon conjunct your Pluto on your natal chart, you have an emotional power and intensity about you. Pluto here gives you an incredible intuition about what motivates other people, emotionally. You know instinctively how to connect with people on a deeper emotional level. Your own emotions can be extreme at times, especially when those around you have betrayed you or not met your expectations. However, this power leads you to bring transformation into your life with more ease than others.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Chiron
This aspect in a natal astrology chart brings your Chironic wound close to the surface. It is aligned with your emotional center, meaning that it is more easily triggered in you than it is in other people. However, this is actually a good thing. Because your core wound is more forward, you will have more opportunities to recognize it, examine it, and work on it, leading to greater healing throughout your life. It may feel hard at times, but it will lead you far on your path of healing.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Black Moon Lilith
With your emotions touching your primal power and relationship to shame, you may feel more shame when you are younger. You may feel a lack of acceptance around what you need to feel safe. As you age you will transform this into empowerment. There are lots of ways this can manifest. For example, maybe you were shamed for being emotional as a child and then found a community that supported and accepted your emotional nature as an adult.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Ascendant
Your outer mask and your inner emotions are aligned when your natal Moon is conjunct your natal Ascendant. You are a generally calm person, and you really know how to “read a room.” You may be sensitive to your environment and could be prone to sensory issues. You’re pretty empathic and can easily absorb energies and emotions from other people. Part of your life’s work will be separating what is truly yours and what belongs to other people.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal North Node
People such as yourself, with your natal Moon conjunct your natal North Node tend to be logical versus emotional. You are mainly emotionally satisfied when you feel you are working on your life’s purpose.

This will allow you to be more present in relationships that will also add to the nurturing you receive throughout your life.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal South Node
This aspect makes it hard for you to move on from harmful patterns that you use to deal with difficult emotions. You are emotionally intelligent and empathic when it comes to other people, but you have trouble dealing with your own emotional challenges. You may feel like your emotional challenges keep you from what you really want to do in life. You may not find your calling in life until you face your emotions.
Natal Moon Conjunct Natal Midheaven
Your natal Midheaven has a strong bearing on your career and public image. When it is conjunct with your natal Moon, it is also called Moon culminating. With this aspect, you may change careers frequently based on emotional impulses. You seek emotional satisfaction and nurturing through your career, but this can lead to difficult situations with boundaries. Public recognition makes you feel emotionally safe in your work. You would do best in a career that requires emotional intuition and sensitivity.
