Aquarius Moon guys and gals give friends a lot of breathing room. They also expect a lot of space; they are emotional free agents. Many are very compassionate but toward the group or humanity. They're nurtured around bright minds, especially those with unusual ideas. Aquarius Moons are avid readers, partly so they can spend time alone, to freshen the air and find clarity in solitude. 

Astrologer Per Henrik Gullfoss says this about air Moons, true of Aquarians in general: "There is a vital need for emptiness in the form of pauses and periods of emotional silence. Also, it is a very fast Moon; it reflects the energy that comes along in almost no time. The empty space is necessary for the digestion process."

Tethered to a Distant Galaxy

Moon Aquarius people are eccentric loners, but this might not be obvious until you know them better. Having the soul (Moon) of Aquarius means being receptive to fast, "out there" frequencies. Aqua Moon signs like to be alone, decipher what they're picking up, and "translate" it into earthly life.

Those with the Moon in Aquarius seem to have access to the mysteries of the universe through their inner lives. Their emotional detachment keeps them cool in crises but can make them as remote as a distant galaxy.

This is especially true for the first two decans of Aquarius, writes astrologer Kevin Burk in "Understanding the Birth Chart": "The Moon in Aquarius can nurture the group, support the cause, and give of itself in abstract ways; but for the first 20 of Aquarius the Moon in Aquarius is peregrine and must go in search of the true meaning of compassion—that which comes as much from the heart as it comes from the head."

A Friend to Many

Aquarius is a sign known to calm the mentally taxed, soothing them in anxious times. Aqua Moon people instinctively accept various responses, behaviors, and lifestyles. This live-and-let-live philosophy earns the trust of a wide spectrum of people. 

They’re notable humanitarians, reaching out to the masses through art, science, or a cause, making them more focused on groups than one-on-one. This orientation makes it hard for them to isolate their unique emotional reality and know how they really feel.

The Moon in Aquarius has grand ideas but can have difficulty with the nuts and bolts. Some find life's mundane challenges, such as paying bills or doing dishes, a herculean struggle. When feeling insecure, they may hide behind a veil of aloofness and try to blend in with the multitudes. Some find connection sitting alone in a public place.

You’ll likely learn that no matter what you say, you won't find disapproval from an Aquarius Moon. They’re sought out by people on society's fringes and are known for being able to soothe the mentally unstable.

it may be hard for the self-contained Aquarius Moon to completely merge romantically. They’re happy to stick with a romantic friendship; many find partnership later in life. A need for personal freedom keeps them from making ties that feel controlling or limiting. They’ll thrive with a mate also taking the road less traveled, hoping to include them in the curious experiment of life.
