  1. Moons in Fire signs probably aren’t sensitive enough for me (I’m a Pisces Moon), although Moon in Sagittarius does seem to have this natural resilient, somewhat lucky, and logical tendency. Moon in Leo people just expect to be waited on – it’s all about them!
    Moon in Taurus are almost excessively lucky in that they never have to work too hard, but are attractive, and usually manage to get someone to look after them.
    Moon in Aquarius are slightly autistic, whereas Moon in Libra will always try to do the right thing. The biggest crushes of my life have been Moon in Virgo. Good looks, character, intelligence, and naughtiness combined!
