What His Moon Says About How He Handles Sex, Emotions, and Love
The emotional (or unemotional) makeup of a guy—especially one you’re dating—is truly an enigma. That is, until you’re six months into the relationship only to find that he has the emotional sensitivity of an angry cat. If you want to really understand how your guy discusses issues, works his way around the bedroom, or handles simple emotions before the six months, the first thing to do is take a look at his moon sign.
Because this planet rules everything related to our most primal emotions, our moon sign provides insight into how we nurture ourselves and our relationships, and how we react to the stuff life throws at us. Is your guy someone who wants to talk through every detail, or hide from emotional confrontation until it’s over? Does he get angry about life’s hiccups, or does he take life in stride? You can learn all this and more based on his moon sign.
So, How Do You Find His Moon Sign?
To determine a moon sign, use a moon sign calculator. This will tell you in what sign the moon was at the time of birth, and voila! You’ve got your man figured out. (Side note: If you want to know whether your moon signs are compatible, you may want to get a natal chart reading to find out!)

Man With Moon Sign in Aries:
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Fire extinguisher anyone? With a moon in Aries, your bae is fiery! The good news? His emotions bubble up as quickly as they cool down. He’s passionate, strong-headed, and expresses his feelings as soon as he has them. There won’t be any secrets about how he’s feeling inside—it will loud and clear. If he’s feeling hot under the collar, encourage him to hit the gym or go for a run to let off some steam. Emotional advice: Take a break from chatting until your partner cools down and can talk calmly and reasonably.

Man With Moon Sign in Taurus:
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
A Taurus guy is rock solid in his emotions and prefers to keep everything practical and grounded. He doesn’t love to get swept away by his feelings and instead likes to hold onto material facts as much as possible. He’s reliable and patient which also make him a great listener. He doesn’t love change though and anything new might make him appear resistant or even stubborn. Emotional advice: Ease him into a new idea and give him some time to adjust.
Man With Moon Sign in Gemini:
Gemini (May 21-June 20)
The Gemini guy loves to think about his emotions but resists actually feeling them. He’ll hypothesize, analyze and intellectualize, and sometimes spin himself into circles rather than simply express his feelings. When he’s in a bad mood, he might not love to talk it out. Give him a little space and let him come to you when he’s ready to share his thoughts. Emotional advice: Try to use phrases like ‘What do you think?’ to get a glimpse into what’s happening inside his brain.
Man With Moon Sign in Cancer:
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Feelings are this guy’s middle name! With a moon in gentle Cancer, these dudes are really in touch with not only their own feelings but your feelings too. Cancer is a water sign and can feel even the most subtle changes in emotional energy around them. They also tend to absorb the energy of a room, and if they aren’t taking steps to let go of this energy in a healthy way, you’ll find them withdrawing from a group. Emotional advice: Gift them with a little sage, crystals or a warm salt bath when they get too caught up in their feelings. Safety, quiet and warmth go a long way with this sign.
Man With Moon Sign in Leo:
Leo (July 23-August 22)
With a moon in Leo, these guys tend to be a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to emoting. Generally they are pretty easy going, unless their pride has been wounded. Your Lion will absolutely let you know when that happens, privately of course, because any Leo moon person will never make a big scene in public. These guys prefer to keep a neutral face around those outside of their friends and family. Emotional advice: When this sign gets stuck in their feelings, expect a little drama with a side of sulking. But once you hear them out, you can expect the theatrics to calm down quickly as being fair and pursuing justice is imperative for them.

Man With Moon Sign in Virgo:
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
With a moon in Virgo, this sign might have the tendency to get nitpicky with you when they are feeling emotional. Instead of large-scale emotional outbursts, expect little jabs thrown your way. This is just their way of seeking some attention and affection, or expressing how overwhelmed they feel. This moon sign also has a tendency to stress out thanks to the constant worry in their minds. Emotional advice: To avoid passive-aggressive behavior, help him figure out the root of what’s really bothering him. Together you can tackle whatever fear, insecurity or issue is lurking and kiss those blues goodbye.
Man With Moon Sign in Libra:
Libra (September 23-October 22)
If your partner has a Libra moon, it’s very rare you will see emotional outbursts. It’s not that he’s not emotional, it’s because he’s not the biggest fan of feelings. Remember, Libra is an air sign, so intellectualizing and analyzing their emotions is way more fun that actually feeling them. Libra moon men will be far more likely to concede or make compromises than to fight it out for a win. And if they are feeling super down, you may notice them overdoing the social activity and putting on the extra charm. Emotional advice: Cheer them up by reminding them to enjoy the moment, life is too short for worries.
Man With Moon Sign in Scorpio:
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
You definitely didn’t need to read this to know that your Scorpio moon man is emotional AF. Although he prefers to brood and the silent treatment over emotional outbursts, he displays his emotions just the same. With a Scorpio moon, affection runs deep. They wish to explore the true depth of emotion and merge with others completely. For that, one needs trust, so trust and loyalty is what keeps them grounded and calm. They don’t fear their emotions and those of others, rather, they welcome feelings, emotions and the depth behind it, helping you and themselves to shine light on the shadows. Don’t expect a simple relationship with these folks, they will demand you transform with them. Emotional advice: With a moon in Scorpio, if you offend your love, he will almost be sure to retaliate. It may not immediate, and more likely, when you least expect it.

Man With Moon Sign in Sagittarius:
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Freedom is the motto of a man with a moon in Sagittarius. They are explorers by nature, but with the moon in this placement, they are chief explorers of all things emotional. Don’t be surprised to find your partner with a keen interest in philosophy, psychology or human development. Because of this, their general disposition is booming with optimism and cheerfulness. They make it a habit not to sweat the small stuff. And it probably comes as no surprise when he misses an appointment here or there, as they love to get swept up in the moment, forgetting about previous obligations. Emotional advice: If you try to cage him in, he’ll run away to keep his free spirit ways (aka they’ll break up with you).
Man With Moon Sign in Capricorn:
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Those with a moon in Capricorn are not known for their emotional outbursts. As long as they feel safe, secure and have some responsibilities to attend do, don’t expect this guy to bring any emotional turmoil to your life. The only time he gets hot under the collar is when he feels disrespected. Unfortunately, you’ll get the cold shoulder until it’s 100-percent resolved. And while their general demeanor is cool, refined and calm, if the relationship is going sour, you’ll be the receiver of his icy, angry and detached emotions. Emotional advice: Even after talking through a fight or conflict, this sign needs time to get over whatever the problem was. Be patient with your love.

Man With Moon Sign in Aquarius:
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
When an Aquarian moon man is feeling balanced and stable, they are rational beings that like to relying on intellect and facts. However, with a ruler like Uranus, when they are not feeling good, watch out for the emotional flash flood! And poof! Just as quickly as their emotions appear, they will disappear. Emotional advice: The best advice for managing the emotions of this sign is to wait until the full emotional storm has subsided and then continue the conversation.
Man With Moon Sign in Pisces:
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
With a moon in Pisces, your lover is as sensitive as they come. But don’t confuse sensitivity with any negative connotations. Sensitivity can be a blessing. This sign will be able to feel your feelings as much as you, and sometimes, even before you know you are feeling them! Emotional advice: Be careful of his dreaming ways. Find ways to bring him down to earth every now and again.
