When you’re dealing with a lot of people and a lot of personalities, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. You want everyone to be happy, but you’re not sure how to make that happen. Enter the Moon.
In astrology, the Moon represents what we need to feel emotionally secure, stable, and content, so if you can target someone’s Moon, you can help them to feel at ease, and your life gets a whole lot easier. Read on to see how you can help put people at ease through their Moon sign and house.
How to manage people by their Moon sign:
Aries Moon: Let them lead
An Aries Moon wants to take the lead, so try not to force them to lead you. They’ll get tired of that fast and start to act like children or pick a fight, which is the last thing you want. An Aries Moon can have a bit of an ego, so you want to pay them compliments as well. This Moon sign is less serious and more playful, so keep things light and fun with them. They enjoy competition and sport, but may not be the best losers, so try to let them win.
Taurus Moon: Indulge them
A Taurus Moon feels better when their senses are engaged, so indulge them with food, drink, sex, whatever it takes to keep them satisfied. A Taurus Moon can respond well to physical touch, so offer them a massage or spa day. This Moon sign also loves to be showered with gifts, so giving them a little something each day can help to calm them. They also don’t care much for drama or emotion, so leave that out.
Gemini Moon: Talk to them
A Gemini Moon has a lot that they want to say and share, and wants to express themselves openly, so let them. Listen to what they have to say, nod a lot, and respond when appropriate. A Gemini Moon has varied interests, so try not to keep things repetitive or they’ll tune right out. Challenge their mind with something they haven’t heard or seen before, and they’ll remain interested long enough to give you a break.
Cancer Moon: Comfort them
A Cancer Moon is in touch with their feelings since Cancer is the sign the Moon naturally rules, and they need to feel supported, comforted, and nurtured as a result. Make them feel at home and comfortable. Get them in the kitchen, whether to cook or to eat, whichever they prefer, and be understanding if they get emotional about something. Acknowledge their feelings and let them vent to help them cool down.
Leo Moon: Give them attention
A Leo Moon loves attention, so give it to them. The more attention they get, the better they feel. They thrive on praise as well, and want you to say nice things about them to their face. A Leo Moon can have a flair for the dramatic when emotional, so try not to object when they do that. Instead, direct their energy to something creative to let it out. They also enjoy letting out their inner child, so give them some toys (even if they’re way past the age!).
Virgo Moon: Let them make the schedule
A Virgo Moon needs a certain amount of structure and order, routine and organization, so try to let them have a say with (or outright create) the schedule. Let them make lists, get everything organized, and find the perfect place for everything (even if it’s not really the perfect place). A Virgo Moon can suffer from nervous energy at times, so keep them as busy as you can. When they’re focused on something, they can be easy to manage.
Libra Moon: Make their decisions
A Libra Moon can have difficulty with making decisions, so if that’s the case, make the decisions for them in advance so they don’t have to worry about it. But when you tell them, make sure they know you weighed the pros and cons of your choices, just as they would, so they can understand for themselves. A Libra Moon requires a certain amount of peace, so try to help everyone else get along.
Scorpio Moon: Let them obsess
A Scorpio Moon needs to have something to obsess over, so give them something. A big project or plan that has to be worked on and needs some research done on would be perfect. The more they can dive in, the better. They also enjoy transforming things, so if there’s anything you’d like revamped, renovated, or restored, give it to them. When all else fails, there is always one thing that always calms a Scorpio Moon: sex!
Sagittarius Moon: Give them an adventure
A Sagittarius Moon wants to live life to the fullest. They don’t always, sometimes just fantasizing about adventures, but would greatly appreciate if you would give them an actual adventure that they can recount in grand stories for years to come. It doesn’t have to be anything huge, just something they’ve never experienced before and that gets their heart pumping. Be optimistic and not too serious too.
Capricorn Moon: Make them the boss
A Capricorn Moon feels that they can be in charge better than anyone, and feels good when they are in charge, so let them be (even if it’s only pretend). They like to delegate and act as an authority figure. They don’t want to be bothered with things that don’t really matter, so don’t bore them with things like chores. Stick them around older people or people of status that they respect and they’ll pipe right down.
Aquarius Moon: Keep it different
An Aquarius Moon doesn’t want things to be the same as everyone else. They enjoy trying out things that are new and different, even weird (maybe they’re weird). Break from tradition and go against the norm with them. An Aquarius Moon can enjoy being in big groups, so surround them with a crowd of folks. This Moon sign also enjoys being charitable, so put them in charge of the charity work.
Pisces Moon: Use their imagination
A Pisces Moon has an active imagination that can get them lost in another Universe at times, so give them an outlet for it. Pick up their favorite movies, give them a new book, or have them do something creative or artistic. They also respond well to music and water, so play some of their favorite music or have a water feature around to calm them. They can get very emotional quickly, so use kid gloves.
