What is the Moon Sign?

Most people know their "star sign", but it's not the same. In fact, "star sign" is a misnamed Sun Sign, the sign of the Zodiac where the Sun was located at the moment of a person's birth. Sun Sign is an important astrological characteristic, and in most cases it can be easily figured out from one's date of birth. Most probably, you already know what is your Sign of the Zodiac. That's your Sun Sign.

Now, here is a surprise for you: you also have a Moon Sign which is not less important than the Sun Sign, and in certain cases can be even more important. Typically, your Moon Sign is different from your Sun Sign, but for some people they can be the same. Astronomically, Moon Sign is the Sign of the Zodiac where the Moon was located at the moment of your birth.

So why nobody knows their Moon Sign? That's because you can't easily figure it out from the date of birth, like you can do with the Sun Sign. It takes some complex astronomical calculations to find out one's Moon Sign.

Fortunately, this app is more than happy to do for you all the complex calculations in a split of a second, just tell it the date and time of birth, as well as in which time zone that birth took place. The app will also offer a brief description of the found Moon Sign - see if you can recognise yourself or your friend in it.

If you find the description fitting, you can share your discovery using Facebook, Twitter, email or a text message.
