Your Moon sign represents the needs of your heart. It describes your true feelings, what it is you need to feel safe and what you find attractive. [Don't know your Moon sign? Find out in our Moon section, top right of page].
Moon signs are divided into four groups, each associated with one of the elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire). In terms of compatibility, Moon signs in the same element are most compatible. Each element group also has one other element it gets along well with. For instance, if you are a Taurus Moon (Earth) and your partner is a Cancer Moon (Water), this would be a supportive pairing. However, there can be some disconnect if you are a Leo Moon (Fire) and your partner is a Pisces Moon (Water).
Differences don’t have to mean the end of romance, but both partners need to realize that they're motived by different things. Read on to find out how your Moon sign influences your romantic style.
Fire Sign Moons in Love (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
In love, you want passion. You’re okay with a little tension and love the thrill of the chase. You’re the kind of lover who craves action, and loves to live life to the fullest. You want a confident, outgoing partner who's up for (almost) anything. Routines and responsibilities can be a turn off. Keep the spark burning brightly by making time for spontaneous adventure and trying new things.
Earth Sign Moons in Love (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
Stability and security are core needs for you. You desire a partner who is reliable, solid and good with money. You prefer to minimize risk and, as such, like to plan ahead. Romantic rituals help make you feel safe because you like to know you can rely on your partner.
Air Sign Moons in Love (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
You’re curious and conversational, so it could be said that the way to your heart is through your head. Intelligence can be hard to refuse, so a partner who’s smart and has a love of learning is important. You prefer a mate who is happy to spend with your friends.
Water Sign Moons in Love (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water signs are known for their romantic streak, so you need a partner who will shower you with affection. Sentimental, old-school romance is hard for you to resist. You crave that intuitive, unspoken connection. A partner who shares your love of family sets your heart on fire. Ideally, music and creativity play a part in your love life.
