This is an ardent, passionate Moon. Sometimes I call it the “big baby” moon, because when you have Moon in Aries, you want what you want… NOW!! Moon in Aries is absolutely unafraid to ask for what it wants, and if you’re the more reticent type, you may be shocked at how this man can stand there and demand his needs be met. I deeply suggest you bone up on how to say the word “no” if you’re a push-over because he will, in all innocence, keep asking for more and more simply because you keep saying yes! Don’t expect him to be able to read your mind, not for a second. He’s just not built that way. He doesn’t spend his time worrying about what someone else might be feeling, he is fully into his own feelings and if you’re going to get any consideration, you have to ask… err…. DEMAND what you want.
I want to be clear. He doesn’t put his feelings first because he thinks you should come second. He states what he needs and fully expects that you’ll do the same. If you don’t speak up, he thinks you have nothing to speak up about– that you’re pleased as punch to be with him, and that if there was anything you wanted, you’d assert yourself. It just doesn’t occur to him that other people like the soft approach, or need some finessing to worm their needs out of them. He’s just not that man.
And he’s FUN! If you’re the fiery type yourself, you’ll love the sparky back-and-forthing he offers. He can pick up on a moment’s notice and head out for adventure. Most likely he’ll have a need for some solitary time where he has no distractions from whatever crusade he is dreaming up. Fire people are great at that– they are the creative spark that leads to incredible accomplishments. Aries types, however, sometimes get stalled after the initial phase of introducing the idea. Hopefully he’ll have some earth or water in his chart that enables him to see a plan to fruition, otherwise it’s up to his “helpers” to make sure his dream materializes. This is why they often get accused of not finishing what they start. How can they—– they’ve just had another idea!!
Aries Moon men likely had an independent, adventurous, busy mother. If his Moon receives difficult aspects such as a square to Mars, arguing may have been a daily occurrence when he was growing up. Aspects such as sextiles and trines means he has very little plugging up the pipeline when he sets his sights on something he has deemed is important to his most basic needs. He’s able to turn on the tap (define what he needs) and it flows to him.
Aries is ruled by Mars, our warrior planet of the solar system. Look to the sign that your man’s Mars is in, and the aspects made to it, and it will tell you a lot of additional information about how your man expresses his deepest emotions and what he truly needs to feel safe and at “at home”.
