This is a fiery, active placement for the Moon. Natives are often spontaneous, energetic, intense and emotionally aggressive. The Moon is ruled by Cancer, a Cardinal water sign. Aries hot, dry temperament mixes with the Moons passive and cool disposition. This creates a lot of unnecessary steam as if Aries doesn’t know how to process all those fluctuating emotions. These people act and then think about the consequences later.
The Moon’s zodiacal sign shows how the native perceives the mother. A native with a Moon in Aries thinks their mother is smart, strong and intense.

The sensitivity of the Moon is lost on an Aries moon. This placement can be self-centered and callous. They don’t have a sensitive side, which would help them emphasize, nor do they want to. Aries moon people are enchanting due to their spontaneity and energy, but don’t expect a shoulder to cry on. They are not sensitive to the well-being of others.
On the other hand, if they feel rejected, they can complain loudly that “nothing is their fault.” Part of the reason why they can’t emphasize is the way they move on quickly from emotional outbursts. They feel bad briefly, but don’t have the time to wallow. One minute a Moon in Aries will be fighting with a random person on the street, the next minute they are over it while telling you the story of how they were arguing with someone. Naturally, they believe argument was not their fault. Quite obviously, the event could have been avoided all together, but an Aries Moon gets to feel emotional briefly and fleetingly. Emotions for them are short and swift.
