In astrology, the Moon quickly travels around the earth, and in approximately 28 days, the moon (on the horizon) appears to travel through the twelve zodiac signs. Doing the math, we can see that twelve does not evenly divide into 28, hence the average transit (movement) through each of the twelve signs of the zodiac is about 2.3 days. That's fast compared to any of the planets or the Sun. The Sun sign, sometimes called the star sign is a whole lot easier to track down. The moon is not so easy. But in astrology, the moon is almost as important as the Sun to defining our inner soul.
The moon sign is a very important piece of information in astrology, but it is not so easy to determine the sign that the moon was in on any given day. To help you find your sign, we have created an easy to use moon sign calculator. The more information about the time of birth (or other event) that you know, the easier it will be to determine the moon sign. Read more...
Knowing your birthday, time of birth and the location of birth can give you an exact moon sign placement on an astrology chart calculator. Yet, a lot of people really don't know their exact time of birth. The birth time is not always recorded on birth certificates. Some people are born at home or on the ride to the hospital, and in the flurry of the situation, people may not have been paying attention to the time at the moment of birth. So there can be a variety of reasons why a person might not know their birth time making it a bit harder to figure out the exact moon sign. But with this calculator, you can get a close idea of one or two signs, if you just know your date of birth and location.
Lunar Living's moon calculator uses time zones instead of cities and states. If you know your location, but you can't figure out which time zone, you can always use a search engine to track down the time zone for the birth place. People born in the Americas will be in the western time zones. People born in Australia (and islands around it), Asia, most of Africa and most of Europe are the eastern time zones. Here is the time zone map to help you out. On the map, the western time zones are indicated on the bottom with a minus sign " - ". The next tricky thing is to figure out whether Daylight Saving Time (DST) or War Time (WT) was used when you were born. Again, you may need to use your favorite search engine to track down the laws and dates for your area for the year that you were born.
One last idea that might work for you if you just don't know the time. We recommend that you run the calculator twice using your time zone information. First, run the calculator with the time set to 00:01 a.m. on your day of birth and then a second computation by changing the time to 11:59 p.m. This lets you know if the moon sign changed during your day of birth. If the results from the first minute in the morning and the last minute in the evening both bring up the same moon sign, then you know for certain that the moon was in that sign for that date. If you get two different moon signs for the day, then you know that your moon sign could be either one or the other! If you do not know either the time zone or the time, you might try selecting the day before, and the day after, the birthdate without changing the time and timezone portion of the calculator, That will give you one or two moon signs. With this somewhat extreme method, you will still be a lot closer to knowing the Moon Sign than just trying to guess.
