Most people know that they have a zodiac sign and they know what it is. But you actually have two signs. You have your sun sign, the one you probably identify with when someone asks you to name it. This is indeed the most important. It conveys your personality.

But you also have a moon sign, where the moon was located at the time of your birth. This is second in importance only to your sun sign. It represents the inner you, the things that run under the surface, not necessarily the "you" that you present to the world.

So what does it mean if you were born when the moon was in Libra?

Personality Profile 

The quality of this sign is cardinal, and the element is air.

Those born with the moon in Libra have a breezy elegance that makes them sought-after companions. In this respect, their inner self is often visible on the surface. Their aesthetic standards are high, and they can’t help but turn their homes into showplaces because they have such an eye for decorative harmony. This often translates into a tranquil domestic life as well because they also know how to create an atmosphere of peaceful balance.

There’s a light, airy quality to the Libra Moon nature that can be refreshing, especially when they're forced to put their nimble diplomacy into action. They know that there are two sides to every story, and they’re experts at finding a workable compromise. People often sense their innate fairness, and this leads them to win the trust of many.

It’s natural for the Libra Moon to share, whether in a business relationship or in romance. They're happiest when they're part of a twosome, but sometimes this leads to a stifling dependence. They can act as if their very existence is threatened when they're faced with a separation of any kind. This is because their emotional identity is shaped by their relationships with others, more so than with any other moon sign.

The Libra Moon can claim to be a true “people person” because she often uses the mirror of others to understand her own nature. But Libra is an air sign and when it's inhabiting the Moon, it often leads with the head rather than the heart.

To hear a Libra Moon talk about a potential mate might sound like she's interviewing for a job. But a focus on the lifestyle, appearance, and manner of a person ranks high for someone who is looking for a pleasing overall package. They’re searching for someone who can glide with them through life in glorious tandem while looking as polished and put-together as they are—in a word, they're looking for perfection both inside and out.

Words commonly used to describe Libra Moons include charming, social, diplomatic, easy-going, adaptable, artistic, graceful, and clear-thinking.

The Shadow Side

These individuals can tend to be self-indulgent and dependent. Because they tend to see both sides of every situation, this can lead to indecisiveness. Their pursuit of goals may seem calculating, and some might find their tendency for people-pleasing a little off-putting and annoying.
