Moon Sign in Aries

Aries Moon guys and gals have the emotional equivalent of flame wars. They get fired up, but then quickly have a change of mood.

What's great about Aries Moon folks is you know exactly where you stand. You might get scorched by what they have to say, but they don't hide what's bothering them.  

The Moon is how you respond when all hell breaks loose, or you're under attack. Aries Moons are courageous in a crisis, and rush in to protect others, even taking crazy risks.

You Moon relates to the kind of mothering you got, and with Aries, you were encouraged to be emotionally independent. If there are hard aspects to the Moon, it's possible, you've got "issues" to work out, about having to deal on your own.  

This Moon also has the Aries challenge of learning through trial and error, how to channel the outbursts.  You might fear your own intensity, since it can really trigger others. But it's important to find ways - and mediums - to fully express that explosive emotionality at the heart of who you are.  

Aries Moons are impatient, and restless, and this can be rough for those that love them. Their comfort zone is not stability, but leaning forward into new, compelling situations. They naturally disrupt the status quo, because they're more at home in charged situations, rather than the same ole.  

Telling It Like It Is

An Aries Moon friend of mine helped pierce the fog of a water-logged type break up - a classic scenario for water signs. She told me what she thought, with no sugar-coating, and it hurt. But I could take it coming from her, because I knew she cared about me, and was being honest.  

Aries Moons are kinda confrontational like that, though they don't do it to torment. They are matter-of-fact about how they feel, and have a willful streak for taking a stand like that.

On the other hand, without self-awareness or life experience, this kind of blunt force can be destructive, and hard to be around. Aries Moons might do a lot of ramming and raging, before they find some balance with the fire element.  

Flashy Moon

Aries is a naturally optimistic sign, and Aries Moons have a great capacity to rise from the ashes of an ordeal.  

Moon in Aries have a fiery heart that always knows Spring will come again, no matter how things appear. And while they do feel intensely, this keeps them from lingering too long in an emotional mood. The Aries Moon is tempestuous, courageous and a great lover of personal freedom.

The Aries Moon can sense the truth of a matter right away, and grows restless for others to "get it." If they seem pent up, it's only that they're ready for the next big challenge. They'll be most alive if at the edge of trying new things and meeting new people.

You can read up on Moon Sign Compatibility, but in general, fire sign Moons do well with other fire sign, and air sign Moons.  

They don't mean to harm when they cauterize emotional wounds with a verbal blowtorch rather than apply a soothing balm. Their words might be brusque, but often their medicine is the blinding truth that otherwise would go unsaid. In relationships of all kinds, count on them to keep it real, fresh and honest.

Lighting Up the Room

The Moon in Aries has a lit up quality that can make them sought after as friends or more. They'll be able to jump-start those at low ebb with their flashy charisma.

But they'll need stimulation in return, or you'll soon see them looking for the exit. The one thing they don't stand for too long is restrictive or boring situations.

They'll need a romantic partner that won't be easily cowed by their bluster. After a cathartic argument, it'll be time for making up, and then the smoldering passion of the Aries Moon will re-emerge. If you can handle getting singed now and again, it'll likely be an unforgettable time.
