The moon sets the emotional tone for all signs as it moves through the zodiac. It moves through a different sign every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to "go with the flow" of the moon. By knowing where your moon is in relation to your sign, you can get information about the general emotions that you can expect to experience. To figure out your moon sign, you would need to know your birthdate, birth time and birthplace.

If you were born with the moon in Taurus, then you are most likely going to have calm, even, steady and mellow moods. The moon is exalted in Taurus.

Playing to Your Strengths

The moon in Taurus is an easy fit. You can go barefoot, languish in the sun or draw out the enjoyment of a, particularly tasty meal. It is easier to feel the weight of who you are, on the earth, rather than just being "in your head." This moon and sign combination is a great indicator that you should be able to tend to practical matters since your two hands are ready to dig in.

In general, when it comes to love, people born with the moon in Taurus are very romantic. Their affections are strong, deep and unwavering. They are sentimental and warm. The placement of the moon in this sign suggests an ability to protect themselves and their own interests.

At Home in Your Body

When the moon is in Taurus, it is easy to sink into the moment, be in the body, and enjoy the delights of the five senses. This elemental earth sign brings out your capacity to revel in earthly life. Enjoying a languid intimacy in a cozy atmosphere sounds like the perfect day. Taurus is the slow mover of the zodiac, meaning that everything is savored thoroughly. That might mean if the moon is in Taurus for you, that you get deep pleasure out of dancing and really feeling the groove of the music. It can also mean that you love to relax deeply and take an afternoon siesta.

Slow and Steady

The grounded nature of Taurus allows you to be focused on one thing. Its general quality is a fixed sign, which means it inspires you to go into something fully, to flesh it out. The Taurus energy helps you discover your natural talent. You might find it easy to practice your craft or hobby. You can get in the zone of work, and take pleasure in making real progress. You are probably excellent at working in a studio or playing a musical instrument. Your patience allows you to unearth your dreams.
