In astrology, our hearts are represented by our moon sign and placement.
Wherever the moon sits in our chart shows the journey our particular heart is on through this life. The moon rules the 4th house, the house of the heart.
Life hardens and closes our hearts at every turn – with every heartbreak, loss, criticism, and betrayal we close off more and more. By adulthood, we’ve built strong protective walls around it.
The bravest thing we can do is learn to drop the armour and live more from our hearts.
The healing of our hearts is a process that can feel difficult at times. Heart healing is the most profound healing we can do.
Astrologically speaking, the sign opposite our Moon sign contains the seed of our heart expansion. The opposite sign is complimentary and shows our greatest opportunity for growth.
We often attract people into our lives with our opposite Moon sign. Friends, family members, lovers, partners. It’s because they show our highest path forward, they represent where our hearts want to grow.
Even if they don’t have the exact sign opposite our moon, they may have the traits associated with it. They may trigger us because they are our opposite, yet they represent our next heart evolution.
