When the Moon is located in the first house of a natal chart, the native becomes a sensitive and intuitive person. Feelings are very important for him, and he can be rather hasty in his reactions, deciding his movements without depending on logic and common sense but rather on his intuition.
They are rather passive, except if some strong male planet is present in the first house. Their behavior is quite moody and changeable – this is due to the fast movement of the Earth’s satellite. Their feelings are fluctuating the same way the sea tide does; there is a monthly pattern that more or less reappears. Even in Male horoscopes, it gives to the person bio-cycles connected with the Lunar calendar and not the Solar. The man with Moon in the first house will have some feminine behaviors, but the Moon does not affect so much his sexual preferences; these are mostly indicated by Mars, Venus and their aspects.
As an appearance, the Moon’s presence gives to the native pale skin, which if the Ascendant falls in a Water sign can be nearly totally white. The hair tends to be black or at least dark, and also is more possible if a the moon resides in a watery sign. Their cheeks are quite rounded, while their weight can fluctuate a lot of times during their life. Their overall appearance changes through time; they are frequently following the changes in fashion and will even maybe annoy their friends by stealing their new appearance style immediately when they see it. If the Moon is somehow connected with Venus, then fashion might be the most important thing in their life.
They have a very deep relationship with their mother, and copy a lot of her characteristics and attitudes. In their love life, they adore cuddling and exchanging feelings of safety with their partner. In addition, they are rather romantic; they will frequently express their affection through offering presents, organizing surprises or otherwise externalizing their positive feelings. Even when their love-life is going well, they spend some days a month in melancholy without an apparent reason. Usually this is connected with thoughts about possible negative events in the future of the relationship, and such actions should be avoided as they can co-create the reality that is to come.
Their Lunar character makes them easy to manipulate, especially in their young ages. They are prone to melancholy, like the darkness of the night and feed on moonlight; if their natal Moon is heavily afflicted they are likely to develop Lunacy, melancholy, hysteria or other mental disorders that will be following the phases of the Moon even if the native never observes that. Moon in 1st house people can be very psychic, catch future events through dreams and “read” the feelings and thoughts of other people just by being near them. They are very nurturing, and love to make their dear people feel comfortable; the same applies to themselves – they adore feeling tenderness and being cared of. Their emotions are difficult to hide, and other people can easily understand the mood of such individuals.
The Moon is the planet which is most responsible for cooking, and people with this placement are usually great both in cooking and in enjoying food. If their 6th or the 10th house cusp falls on Cancer, or the Moon is elsehow connected to a planet in the 6th or the 10th, the person might even choose cooking as a profession.
The Moon creates people that are very dependant to others. They do not yearn to become leaders; they prefer to follow someone even if they are not somehow lower than him. They like to reflect more than radiate, and this functions great for them if the Moon is not very afflicted. In the opposite scenario, they can easily follow wrong paradigms, follow dishonest people and copy some of their characteristics. If such a thing happens, the individual should break any ties of dependence and try to seek again his real self.
