"If there is a purpose to existence then everything must exist for that purpose." By William Henderson
When the last word has been said about the zodiac the last mystery that confronts mankind will have been solved. By Charles Carter, The Zodiac and the Soul
I THINK MOST PEOPLE HAVE VERY COMPLICATED, TUMULTUOUS INNER LIVES. THAT’S WHAT FASCINATES ME — EVERYONE HAS SO MANY CONTRADICTORY LAYERS. WE ARE NOT CONSISTENT AND WE’RE ALWAYS STRIVING TO BE SOMETHING AND RUNNING AWAY FROM SOMETHING ELSE."
Those with Moon in the 1st house respond with powerful sensitivity to the environment, and they are influenced by feelings, emotions, and instincts. The person tends to have an emotionally dominate, subjective response, and they can project their changeable moods out into the environment, and sometimes this creates an impressionable personality.
Equally they tend to react strongly to their surroundings; these people can be seen as empathetic, understanding, and accommodating. The appearance may take on some of the features of the Moon and they may possess a highly expressive face, which quickly shows the person’s moods and reactions to any given situation, and so they have a harder time masking these quickened responses.
These people may feel like the most vulnerable aspects of their personality are always on show. Sometimes the personality appears to be very ‘soft’ and vulnerable, and they may also be crabby and defensive at times, protective, needy, emotional, or clinging. Highly sympathetic, with strong imagination, these people have the ability to nurture and please. Sometimes there is too much dependency on their physical appearance and how they are perceived by others.
Sometimes they can appear moody, unstable, and overly –dependent on others. However, there is often a powerful hunger for personal expression, and there is great sensitivity to the people around them. Some may gravitate towards the role of the carer, and others will elicit this response from others. The personality is usually subject to the ebb and flow of the changing moods, and the Moon also needs to feel secure in their environment and might not venture out until it is perceived to be safe.
