The moon represents our emotional nature, our security and deepest needs. It containts our basic habits and unconscious reactions related to our past karma and upbringing. It is associated with the mother and with feminine energy in general, it is both our inner child and mother. It is responsive, receptive, reflective and instinctual. In our personal chart it shows how we respond to our environment emotionally.
Moon Sextile Mercury
With this Sextile, the Mercury qualities are often more emphasized, as this aspect is associated with the mind, information, understanding and communication. But your lunar personality foundations are at the same time well established and not disruptive or unduly intrusive, and so you should be able to express your Moon's qualities in ways which also enhance your Mercury qualities.
Information and knowledge are especially appealing to you as you have an almost insatiable curiosity and need for wide and extensive intellectual exploration. For you, the world is like an immense storehouse of fascinations, your mind lighting up with interest as every new one comes into view.
You would love to live as a 'perpetual student', forever exploring new topics and the connections between them. But this could result in you being a bit of a dilettante, sampling many varieties of knowledge but rarely exploring any of them to any great depth.
Both your memory and comprehension are likely to be above average, thus giving you a well-stocked mind. A big motivating factor in your life is the need to be socially useful. To achieve this, you hope to transform your thoughts and ideas into practical results for the community.
The sense of value and pleasure this gives serves to encourage you to increase your knowledge further. You may decide to become involved with civic and social groups, pooling your assets and abilities with those of others in order to achieve common objectives.
Generally, you see ideas as inspiration for practical action. But you also notice what personal profit they can bring, as you possess an effective business and organizational ability, which could, in fact, be far more successfully exploited.
You can be an effective communicator, conveying ideas and presenting them in a clear and persuasive manner, being both entertaining and interesting. This can manifest in writing and lecturing, and can be beneficial in social communication. In groups these skills can extend your influence and increase friendships as your personality is sufficiently flexible and tolerant to relate to many types of people.
You possess a sensitivity to others' thoughts and feelings, almost like a psychic intuition which operates through a Moon affinity of sensitivity and emotional rapport. This can act as an early warning system, indicating when people or situations are less genuine than they appear, so trust these inner sensations and feelings when they arise. This sensitivity helps you to be tactful and diplomatic, whether in social contexts or within the family.
Others can recognize your thoughtful and caring nature and, provided that you do not become obsessive about manifesting your ideas, you should be able to cooperate and harmonize well with partners and family. Fortunately, your emotions rarely enter into direct conflict with your mind and ideas, but rather usually work with them in tandem, so that positive attitudes assist optimistic plans and help make them reality. This emotional and mental accord minimizes distracting inner conflicts and enables problem resolution to be achieved more smoothly.
Your Moon's emotional warmth and protective concern is an asset for family members and intimate relationships. Domesticity in your life will be harmonious, founded on close and effective communication. Home is important, but wider social involvement will be equally so, as this is often the environment in which you intend to apply your ideas practically. You recognize both emotions and mind as offering valid messages, but remember to ensure that neither becomes imbalanced through being overemphasized, as each performs an important role in different circumstances.
Intimate partnerships, marriage or love affairs will involve a high level of mutual communication and sharing, enriching the lives of everyone involved and contributing to each achieving their personal aims. You will be attracted to similarly intelligent and optimistic partners who are able to exploit innate talents, especially those who conceive ambitions and then strive to achieve them. A danger is that, when two people are chasing individual goals and dreams, then conflict may occur if their paths begin to diverge rather than run parallel, so remember to have common dreams too.
