Moon in House 1
When born with Moon in House 1, the Moon makes people highly sensitive, very emotional and delicate. The natives are more honest about their feelings and usually live their life by going with the flow. This means they may have some problems with their relationships, especially when reacting over-emotionally to different situations and specific kinds of people. It’s just impossible for them to be less sensitive, so they need a partner to help them trust and feel secure to open up about what they may be feeling. Only with a trustworthy person will they be comfortable and happy enough. It’s very easy to hurt Moon in 1st House natives, because they get immediately offended when someone seems to just say something in a harsher manner. Counting only on their emotions, these natives don’t judge too rationally most of the time, so their decisions may not be the most efficient ones. Always having feelings about something or someone, people with the Moon in the first House are often rushed and emotional. Very nurturing characters, they want to take care of everyone and react based on their gut feeling, especially if the Moon is very close to their Ascendant. These natives need to always have their emotions stimulated and to express themselves freely if they are to be truly happy. Because they’re moody, many people may not stand to have them around. Their sensitivity often has them taking everything personally and reacting in a very defensive mode to any commentary someone has made.
For Moon in House 1, it’s important for them to be more patient and to learn that other people’s emotions are equally important as their own. It’s easy to impress them, and when they find something surprising, they react like they have never seen something similar ever before. You can count on them to always say what they’re feeling because they find it impossible to keep their emotions hidden. As the Moon occupies its place in the 1st House of their birth chart, they have quite the need to get noticed for their talents and can predict future events with the help of their amazing intuition. As soon as they manage to keep their moods and impatience in control, they’ll start achieving great things by intuitive means. Their sensitivity is not the most helpful thing for them because it tends to be quite extreme, especially when they’re young. It’s difficult for them to mask what they are feeling because, like with the Capricorns or Scorpios, their emotions are written on their face. Individuals with Moon in 1st House have a tendency to speak about what’s going on in their head out loud, no matter how inadequate it may seem for them to do that in a conversation. They wouldn’t mind if no one listened, and they would practically talk to themselves without being bothered. Not the most objective people, they’re at least very sympathetic and can feel other people’s pain or happiness, especially when dealing with someone very close to them. As a matter of fact, they pretty much identify themselves through empathy. Because they’re trying to stay away from pain and suffering as much as possible, many will think of them as cold or indifferent, when in fact they would only try their best to protect themselves. When it comes to the way they look, Moon in first House natives have pale skin, especially if their Ascendant is in a Water sign, dark hair and a round face. Their weight can fluctuate, so they need to watch their diet and exercising routines. Changing their dressing style according to the fashion trends, these people are the ones who annoy others because they insist on copying their style. When the Moon and Venus are connected, they can be simply obsessed with fashion. Very attached to their mother, they will copy her in many ways. Very affectionate with their other half, romantic and generous, individuals with Moon in 1st House love surprising their partner. No matter how good their love life is, they still have moments of melancholy because they think of past events and how to avoid any negative emotions in the future. Because they’re impressionable, it’s very easy to manipulate them. At least they have psychic abilities and can see if a situation is going to take the wrong turn or if people have bad intentions with them. Giving, and caring, they live to make others feel good and love it when their loved ones want to spoil them. Many will understand their feelings and moods because they simply can’t hide them. Well-liked by people and enjoying their popularity, when their Moon is in Aries, Libra, Capricorn, Cancer, Virgo, Gemini, Sagittarius or Pisces, they are more shy and not that eager to receive attention from the public. You can always count on them to be flexible and to not mind anything new coming into their life, but if their Moon is in Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius or Taurus, they tend to be more rigid and to not accept change.
People with the Moon in House 1 are very sensitive in their responses to different people and situations. Their emotions and intuition are usually dominating their decisions, having them subjective and unconsciously projecting their moods that often change depending on others and the environment. Most astrologers say that this specific position of the Moon means they’re always easily impressed, reacting in a strong way to everything that’s happening. But all in all, they’re sympathetic, flexible and nice. The Moon will surely lend them some of its features, so they’ll always seem mysterious, enchanting and gentle. Very expressive, their temper and feelings are shown on their face, this being the main reason why they simply can’t hide what’s going on in their mind and heart. Their changing moods and the way they make other people’s problems their own are sure to keep them constantly busy. If they were restrained from being expressive and sensitive, they would become completely alienated and feel very empty because this reality would be something they can’t accept or deal with. The biggest challenge for them is being happy without having others depending on their care. They will see everyone as a mirror of their own self and won’t be able to distinguish reality from what’s only in their mind anymore. And this can go on for years, just for in the end, a type of insanity to have them completely subjugated. Moon in 1st House people may seem unrealistic to those who don’t have a rich imagination. Many can also see them as eccentrics, but their closest friends will still like them for being good listeners. Their memory is incredible, so expect them to know where you have been at a specific date, with whom and why you happened to be upset at that time. They may feel like their vulnerabilities are always on display and that others are able to see how fragile they actually are. That’s why they may act defensive and cling to those who at least give the impression they can protect them. All astrologers say the Moon keeps memories and accentuates all the emotions. Women are even related to it from a biological point of view because they have cyclical happenings in their bodies. For both genders, this celestial body is a great influencer over mood, psychology and behaviour. Many people have strange experiences with the Moon’s phases, some not even being aware why they are feeling strange sometimes. The ones who are more Lunar will be perfect caretakers, the others will just take good care to be perceived in a good way by the public. The Moon has to do her thing and influence them the way it knows better, so sensitivity and moodiness are at home with people having this celestial body in First House.
