Gemini Moon Sign: Personality & Compatibility
Ever read a Gemini personality description and thought, "Hey! That sounds like me!". But then follow it up with the realization that you are not Gemini. Well, at least your sun sign isn't. So little is known about Astrology that it becomes very easy to dismiss it. People simply look at their sun signs and go, "I am nothing like a typical person from this zodiac sign". Sure, Sun signs play a major role in deciding our personalities and key characteristics. But we can't dismiss the effect that other signs have on us. Ever seen your natal chart? Just look at all the different signs and houses it talks about. All of it pointing to one thing only: our personality is a confluence of a lot of astrological factors. One of them is the Moon Sign.
Here is everything you should know about the influence of the Gemini moon sign on their personality and their best compatibility!
What is a Moon sign?
Let’s try to understand this by talking about sun signs. Your sun sign is the zodiac sign that the sun was in when you were born. And those signs change as the earth moves around the sun. So, typically, it takes 30-31 days for the sun sign to change. All the people born during that period belong to a particular sun sign.
Just like the sun signs, the moon signs are the zodiac sign the moon is in at the time of your birth. Here is the difference though. While the sun signs depend on the revolution of the earth around the sun, the moon sign depends on the movement of the moon around the earth. Therefore, moon signs change faster than sun signs do.
Because of its shorter revolution period, compared to earth’s around the sun, it typically takes the moon a month to visit all zodiac signs. Which means that it stays in one sign for approximately 2 days. This makes it difficult to accurately identify the moon sign with just the date of birth. Moon signs are calculated based on the date, time and place of birth of the person.
Now on to what your moon sign says about you? In one way it can be said that the moon sign determines who we are on the inside. The moon sign dominates and determines the emotions that we express. How we feel towards things and express those feelings, is determined by your moon sign. So, you might have an Aries sun sign, but feel incapable of displaying the selfishness characterised with them. That is probably because you have a Gemini moon sign.
But your sun sign does all of that for you, doesn’t it? Well, yes, and no. The sun sign does control how we react. But the motivations and obsessions, the passions and tempers that go into our rationality are a product of the influence of the moon sign. You might come across as a shy person because your sun sign is Taurus. But you know that one the inside you love being the centre of attention because your moon sign is Leo. Your Taurus sun sign helps you keep those impulses in check. But that doesn't mean they don't exist.
The Gemini Moon Sign Personality
So, what does the moon sign of Gemini can tell us? Say what you will about the Geminis, but there is an almost supernatural feeling of being associated with an air sign. The Gemini moon sign is no different. The regular characteristics associated with this zodiac sign get carried as is to their moon sign.
They are smart, fun to be around, always surrounded by a group of friends. They are the life of every party. Geminis are known to be extremely sociable. While you might not feel extremely sociable as a moon sign.
There will always be an element in you that craves a big social circle. Maybe you have the most fun on a weekend when you are inside your bed and watching a movie. But you wouldn’t mind spending that weekend with your friends in a pub either. That is the range that this moon sign brings with it.
People with the Gemini moon sign are great intellectuals. They don’t like big social circles just for the company. But also, for the insights that human interactions provide them. They love to debate and learn more. And as open as they are to learning, they have a hard time implementing the lessons they learn.
These people tend to look at things from the perspective that best suits them. Which often leads to a lot of problems for them in the long run. Especially when the imagined collides with the real. And despite what it might seem when you see them laughing at the top of their lungs, they have the following personality trait.
People with the Gemini moon sign are very secretive about their real emotions. Part of it is because their ability to express often conflicts with their sun sign personality.
But more importantly, it’s because they think more about their emotions than they feel them. This makes it difficult for them to accurately identify their emotions in the first place. Another question that often arises about Gemini moons is based on the notoriety of their sun sign personalities.
Are Gemini moons loyal? The simple answer is, yes, they are extremely loyal. But you need to earn their loyalty. You can’t keep them out of the loop and expect them to be loyal too. Explain to a Gemini moon why you had to cheat on that test, and he will swear you have never cheated in your whole life. But expect blind loyalty and they will deliver their style of justice.
Gemini Moon Sign Compatibility
Let’s begin with a simple question: Do moon signs have to be compatible? Let me answer it with an incident. A friend of mine fell for this amazing guy and they were head over heels for each other. Why wouldn’t they be? She was a Virgo and he was Cancer. One of the most ideal couples in the astrological cycle. But after 3 months of dating, they had a nasty breakup. When the dust had settled, I asked her "what went wrong?". Her answer, verbatim, was, "It always felt like emotionally we were poles apart". Sun sign compatibility with your partner is extremely important.
But a relationship is a consequence of the emotion of love. The Moon sign takes precedence in that department. Hence, the moon signs need to be compatible with an emotionally fulfilling relationship.
The signs most compatible with the Gemini moon sign are Aries, Gemini, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius.
The Aries and the Gemini have unique compatibility that is shown even in their sun signs. Sure, this relationship has its highs and lows. But with some introspection on their part, they can work wonders.
Who can understand a Gemini better than a Gemini? This is the best match that a Gemini moon sign can look for. They not only understand each other’s emotions but also have similar expectations from one another.
Geminis with Libra are more compatible as moon signs than they are as sun signs. This is because, on a temperamental level, they can get along. The only point of contention is the Gemini's ability to lie. But the sun sign can take care of that.
Sagittarius and Gemini moon signs share the same passion of living life large. They are always together in their search for new adventures. Both love company and have an equally kind and compassionate temperament.
And finally, the cutest couple of them all, Gemini and Aquarius. Both of them are extremely fascinated with each other. This helps in keeping the love alive, no matter how old the relationship gets.
