The Moon in the houses can reveal where and how we go about seeking emotional satisfaction. Important clues to the reason for perpetual emotional unrest can be found through the study of the house position of the Moon, and these take the form of constant changes or ups and downs in the areas of life ruled by the house. It is in these areas that we should aim to make deep attachments rather than superficial and temporary emotional thrills if we are seeking out a true feeling of belonging and emotional fulfillment.

Moon in 1st House

gives you the traits of the sign of Cancer, moody, sensitive, and with an "instinctive" approach to everything.

Moon in 2nd House

Wherever the Moon is in the horoscope, things go up and down as if pulled by the tides. Here, of course, that applies to money and the sense of self worth. If you have this placement, you have to salt something away during the up phases so that you can get through the down times. Good advise for anyone? Yes, but especially for those with the Moon in the second house.

Moon in 3rd House

No need to worry about keeping emotions bottled up with this one. In fact, the problem may be to "keep a lid on it". Emotions (Moon) will get communicated (third house). On the plus side, you always know where this person is coming from, and imagination is increased. If there are siblings, at least one will be a highly emotional type.

Moon in 4th House

Daddy was probably the moody type. There is probably a strong emotional need to look upon home as a place of refuge (your shell). Watch out for emotional swings getting stronger with time.

Moon in 5th House

gives an emotional need to be on stage, but, since the Moon rules moods, this alternates with a desire to withdraw into a shell and be alone. The romantic interests will tend to be on the moody side and will either want to "mother" you (even the men) or be mothered by you. Be careful as this placement tends to attract "whiny" types. If you have children, you will have to watch the mood swings of the first born.

Moon in 6th House

gives an emotional need to work. This is one of the workaholic positions. You are at home at work, and your work area will tend to look like a second home with little domestic touches. The co-workers and subordinates you attract are likely to be moody, and either they will need "mothering" or they will try to mother you.

Moon in 7th House

can give a moody partner. Conversely, your attitude towards the partner and partnerships in general constantly changes and goes through cycles. The partner will either tend to be good at domestic tasks and will "mother" you (this goes for both men and women) or will shift the domestic burdens to you and demand that you mother them. You yourself may become moodier after marriage (don't we all! But not as much as this) or, more positively, more expressive emotionally.

Moon in 8th House

dinner first is a must. Cuddling helps. There is an emotional need to heal and nurture. Moon in the second house wants to accumulate its own money and possessions. Moon in the eighth gives an emotional need to manage and control the resources of others.

Moon in 9th House

The general principles one believes will be held because of emotional, rather than logical reasons. There tends to be a strong emotional need to either travel, study, or both.

Moon in 10th House

The career, and our attitude towards it, go through "phases". After all, the Moon does show where we are moody. This influence can bring either us or what we do before the public, no matter what the career. Some specific occupations it inclines to include anything to do with the home and food. This takes in work in hotels and restaurants, as well as the dairy industry.

Moon in 11th House

Moody, emotional friends. Isn't everybody moody and emotional on occasion? If you have the Moon here, your friends can be described as being NOT moody only on occasion. On the positive side, they can be very nurturing to you in times of stress. Frequently though, it is you who has to be nurturing to them. Try to keep you hopes and wishes from fluctuating too much.

Moon in 12th House

Can make you hide your emotions and mood swings.
