The Moon in Sagittarius

Unlike cozy homebody Cancer, Sagittarius needs freedom and adventure.

The open road is home for this dynamic placement! When things get overwhelming, the most soothing activity is time spent outdoors. Camping, hiking, and picnics are all soul-satisfying under a Sagittarian moon. While this placement does lend itself to socializing and teaching, there's a tendency to avoid emotional problems by retreating into a fresh trip or activity. On the other hand, since Sagittarius is a fire sign, tempers can flare easily. So try to approach situations with a calm mind. A Sagittarian moon is spiritually and intellectually inspiring—prepare to have your perspective shifted.

Moon in Sagittarius Personality

"Free bird" Sagittarius moons aspire to spread their wings and fly far from all restraints. Fiercely independent, lunar Sagittarians prefer to keep things light and easy. Misery and monotony are anathema to those with the moon. For them, few commitments are and should be set in stone. However, unlike their solar counterparts, this need for non-attachment is more covert. They're the true rolling stones for whom their desire for variety is king. As a result, these folks tend to keep friends who hail from any and everywhere. Where else will they crash when their next vacation rolls around?

Being so changeable, consistent communication may be a struggle with this placement. Their minds are as mobile as their feet, so things are bound to get left behind. Therefore, if plans with them fall through, don't take it personally.

Positive Traits

Their curiosity for other places and ways of life gives Sagittarius moons a cultured air. With the traveling their personality compels them to do, they're sure to pick up a few things here and there. Moreover, the mind of a Sagittarius roams even in their sleep, as it fills with dreams of far off to which places they have and haven't been.

However, the Sagittarius moon life is far from solitary. Armed with their knowledgeable natures, they make great teachers and mentors, primarily because they approach new subjects with the understanding that failure and disappointment are short-lived. In this way, Sagittarius moons “take a lickin' and keep on kickin'” even after particularly painful hiccups.

Negative Traits

In pursuit of positivity, Sagittarius moons reject negative emotions in themselves and others. On account of their generally upbeat nature, many of these individuals may feel that people expect and will only accept positivity from them. After all, who wants to see a crying clown? So, they bury their less-than-pleasant emotions deep within and play (what they perceive to be) their part.

However, this suppression can lead to emotional outbursts and resentment toward the sources of their ire—all with no indication of displeasure. Consequently, they take the Sagittarian route and "escape" the strife, thus earning their "flaky" title.


Those with their moon in Sagittarius remind us that if we love something, we must let it go. Lunar Sagittarians traipse through life knowing that moments and relationships are ephemeral at best. Because tomorrow never knows, they do their best to completely immerse themselves in each and every experience.

Most feel that they can sleep when they're dead, so these individuals devote their waking to chasing novelty. As a result, Sagittarius moons are apt to take a walk on the wilder and brighter sides of life.
