Moon in Fire Signs: “If you Love me, Play with me! – Part 1

©May 2011 by Fabienne Lopez

Moon in Fire Signs - Aries, Leo and Sagittarius is passionate, enthusiastic and energeticFire Moon Characteristics

The fire sign moon is the most impulsive of all 12 placements. They are dominated by the needs of imagination, and engage any activity with an energetic approach to match their enthusiasm. Freedom loving, thrill-seeking, pleasure-oriented, they are the best representatives of the spontaneous, child-like, optimistic side of life, filled with passion, love, and fun.

The moon in fire requires a sense of meaning, an imaginative connection to a deeper and higher pattern. In Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, this luminary tries to revitalize material reality with drama and imagination. What crushes a fiery moon more than anything else is a banal life. The mundane bores them easily, and causes them to lose interest when things fall into a routine. Practical matters, such as grocery shopping and paying bills, stifles and, constrains them.

This elucidates their willingness to take risks in the hopes of shaping the endless sea possibilities into a more creative life. For this moon, contentment comes from exploring opportunities, opening new doors, starting anew.

The downside price is self-centeredness and immaturity.

Fire Moons are warm-hearted but also selfish and self-centeredA Constant Need for Falling in Love

Restlessness, impatience, often accompanies the question what’s next? Falling in love. The fire sign moon likes being enamored. The newness of discovering the ins and outs of a partner excites their imagination; and is the source they tap into for nourishment.  Therefore, aliveness for them is to constantly find new things or people to fall in love with.

They keep the drama and giddiness of being swept away by a torrent of sensations fresh and exciting by repeating the process with someone else whenever the rush starts to fade. In this sense, the fortieth time is as new as the first one, because they are enamored with the idea of being in love.

The Unintended Consequences of Passion

An unintended consequence of this need to live to the fullest is a depersonalization of their partner in favor of a romantic fantasy, full of knights on white horses, and damsels in distress.

This attitude has earned the moon in fire sign a reputation for being an exciting and fun lover who avoids commitments in relationships.  Glamour and adventure quickens them emotionally, so they pursue any interests with passion with a capital P, much like a junkie in search of his fix.

Consequently, fiery moons find difficult to detach, gain perspective, everything is lived in a subjective manner. Their feelings are in constant motion, swinging between extremes of deep joy and ferocious anger, seldom in the middle. They seem to have only two modes of expression in their vocabulary: I love it! I hate it!

Something not often pointed out: moon in Aries, Leo or Sagittarius can be clinging since they depend to a great extend on someone else to feel special, to be acknowledged as an unique individual. For their emotional well-being, they need a partner who enhances their self-esteem. Therefore, if their loved one acts in an embarrassing way, this moon will run cold and might even end the relationship. They require someone they are proud of.

Notwithstanding their shortcomings, being near a Moon in fire sign is a nurturing and energizing experience.

    Funny that you mention that fire sign moons hate boredom :) I am one of those fire moon people. I had jury duty about a year and a half ago, and was sitting in the waiting room, passing time until I was called for a case. After I read everything I had with me, and being totally disgusted with what was on TV (Martha Stewart!), I took out my notebook and wrote poetry about boredom. I have a entire series on it in my Facebook notes. Some of them are quite funny!

      Katley:
      I had to laugh! Boredom as a source of inspiration?! A whole series? Must have been some serious boredom. But I agree with you; being a fire sign I always carry something with me to do (either a book, a little pad for taking notes, etc…) when I am waiting.

  2. I’ve been waiting for your analysis on fire sign moons, and finally it’s here! Moon in Sag in the 5th house opposed by Saturn in Gemini in the 11th; this axis is squared by a stellium of Virgo planets (Sun Mercury Mars) in the 3rd house. I can relate to everything you’ve written about fire sign moons, particularly the point about needing to feel good about partners (or endeavors) that enhance the native’s self-esteem. I’m very sensitive about the type of people with whom I keep company and have been known to end relationships with people without prior notice if they cause me some kind of embarassment or major discomfort. I keep a small circle of friends as a result…. and I think sometimes they may not feel all that secure about how I really feel about them. Can’t wait to read part two….thank you!

      Philly Virgo:

      Thanks for the compliment! This sensitivity to being embarrassed was something I was not always aware myself. I won’t anything but I will quietly retreat or avoid public appearances with that person.
