When we discuss our Zodiac signs with friends, such as saying, ‘I'm an Aquarius,' we are usually referring to our Sun sign.

Let the Moon Phase You Were Born Under Tell You Who You Are

Lunation, also known as ‘moon phases’, refers to the daily changes in the shape of the moon. Dane Rudhyar, a Western astrologer born in France in 1895 and later emigrated to the USA where he died in 1985, proposed that humans can be classified into eight types according to the lunation under which they were born. This classification, although not independent astrology in itself, is one of the methods used in Western astrology to interpret the horoscope. This article describes an easy way to find out the lunation (or moon phase) you were born under, the eight moon phases of personality and some famous people born under each lunation.
