Moon in Aquarius Karmic Predispositions

If you were born with an Aquarius Moon, you come with the past life experience of someone, who has roamed the world or participated in large endeavors with big groups of people. You were most likely strongly attached to a cause or a movement, which you were passionately pursuing together with others.

As a child, you may have developed a lot faster than the others, and possibly demonstrated interests, unusual for your age – computers, science fiction, inventions, and possibly even astrology. You may have also had an unusual sense of social justice and orientation from a very young age.

You also come with the predisposition of many changes and separations  – maybe your family had to move often, you were changing schools, or later in life – partnerships. You may also carry the mark of such experiences from past lifetimes, including the possibility that you may have lived with one parent only or were adopted.

Moon in Aquarius emotional profile

moon in aquarius meaning

Because Aquarius is an extremely detached sign, the initial reaction of those born with the Moon in Aquarius is to withdraw at a distance.

The emotional reactions of this sign are also greatly reduced. That’s why Moon in Aquarius people are usually characterized by a relatively cold, distant and non-emotional presence. For one reason or another, they want to look distant and mysterious. This is their instinctive defensive reaction.

At the same time, however, the power of their sexual magnetism has not been undermined. Still, they seem to radiate coldness. Being in their company, we can feel as if they are covered with a thin layer of ice. Only after we have communicated with them for some time, this outer ice cover gradually begins to melt, and only then do the qualities of the Sun sign and the Ascendant begin to become clearer.

Although at first glance those born with the Moon in Aquarius seem completely uninterested in anything, it’s just an outer mask. There are a lot of emotions boiling inside them, but they remain hidden. It is interesting to note that they have a strong romantic attitude towards love and their intimate partners.

The problem mainly lies in their external attitude, which is very misleading. If we judge them purely superficially, we would get the false impression that they are devoid of emotions, feelings, and largely sexual attraction. A closer look, however, shows that this is not the case at all.

Although they seem outwardly distant, cold, and unemotional, if their friends get into trouble, their first reaction would be to come to the rescue.

They would immediately see the best way to solve the problem. Moon in Aquarius people have a friendly and humanitarian orientation, but at the same time like to keep a certain distance.

For them, friends can be much more important than relatives.

The unpredictability and originality of Aquarius is especially evident when faced with the need to react spontaneously without having time to think. Such unforeseen moments can occur in any emergency situation. Then they can act in a way that is radically different from their usual behavior.

The biggest challenges Moon in Aquarius need to overcome

moon in aquarius meaning

Moon in Aquarius people can have a very tense and easily disturbed nervous system. In order to deal with that, they most of all need freedom, and a space to express their uniqueness.

This is actually one of their greatest fears – Moon in Aquarius people cannot imagine being restricted in one way or another. They fear anything and everything that can restrict their social life and contacts.

Since Aquarius is a sign of revolution, sudden changes, and nervous impulses, the magnetic Moon, which is also associated with home and family life, feels not too much at ease there.

People with a Moon in Aquarius need to get used to the fact that their life can be identified by a lot of unexpected, shocking events that happen out of the blue. Even if these events are caused by themselves!

An example for this is a very close friend of mine with a Moon in Aquarius, who was in a long-term relationship with a very decent guy, who loved and respected her. He is a very stable and reliable Taurus, and they were already planning to buy a house and have kids together. One month they were looking for spots and houses, and I was already getting used to the idea she will soon get pregnant, and the next month she informs me that she is moving out! Imagine the shock and surprise I was in! Turns out, she started feeling too restricted and this type of life seemed too boring for her. She wanted her rich social life back!

This is the perfect example of how a Moon in Aquarius acts. Her other aspects would never make you guess she has an Aquarius Moon, because she has a very fiery and warm nature, but in moments like these, the Moon in Aquarius traits really surface!

Moon in Aquarius most positive personality traits

They are characterized by originality, and sometimes even a certain genius.

Moon in Aquarius people just want to get others out of their lethargy and make them think in a new, different way.

From time to time Moon in Aquarius people may get sudden flashes of ingenious ideas. The location of the other planets will show whether they are able to embody these ideas in a real, concrete, practical plan and actions. Aquarius is ruled by Uranus. This planet is very important to those born with Moon in Aquarius, and  it is extremely important to explore its placement in the natal chart by aspects and house.

Moon in Aquarius love life

As we mentioned earlier, Moon in Aquarius people strongly value their freedom and this is something their partners need to know from the beginning.

Moon in Aquarius people are usually led by and ideal, and the perfect situation would be when their partner shares this ideal. They should also be aware that friendships and groups in which Moon in Aquarius people participate can become more important to them than partnerships and family life (which will not be the case with very strong earth and water placements, of course).

For a partnership with a Moon in Aquarius person to work, you must definitely get along with their friends. Otherwise this will become a culprit in the relationship sooner or later.

Moon in Aquarius people, on the other hand, need to be very tolerant towards their partners, who may not always understand the peculiarities in their personality. A lot of open communication, dialogue, and sharing is needed in order to avoid outbursts and misunderstandings.
