An Overview: Why we are changing the world of dating one moon at a time.
Carl G. Jung quote on Astrology: We are born at a given moment in a given place and like vintage years of wine we have the qualities of the year and of the season in which we are born. Astrology does not lay claim to anything else.
What is a Moon Sign? In addition to a person's sun sign, there is also a moon sign that affects their behavior. The sun sign (the position the sun was in on the date of birth) usually says much about a person's character. This is what people generally consider their birth sign. The moon sign (the position the moon was in on the date of birth) deals mainly with a person's emotional needs and predisposition. Sun signs change monthly and the moon signs every 2.5 days. The Rising Sign or Ascendant changes every 2 hours passing through all 12 Astrological signs within a 24 hour period. Depending where one is born and what time is important, it is difficult to tell what your Rising Sign might be simply by guessing, however there are reliable formulas to simplify that. SUNMOONMATCH.COMhas the software capability of defining ascendant or rising times. When the times are not available we will use the 8 am birth time that both Carolyn Reynolds and Linda Goodman have used. The moon signs are harder to research but SUNMOONMATCH.COM offers software to do so and when registering for membership will provide a free Moon Sign Report.
History: Psychologist Dr. Carl Jung revealed the importance of the sun and moon combination in 1930. His research dealt mainly with the sun and moon configurations of married people. His study proved that people married a Sun Moon Match 3x’s greater than coincidence. Carolyn Reynolds furthered his studies with a sun moon book 26 years ago. Gone was the outdated Mars Venus connections and the emphasis shifted to the moon’s importance. Why? Because the moon reveals a partners’ emotional needs. Our dating site incorporates these matches into our database.
He found that the three strongest connections were:
1. The moon in the same sign as another person's sun sign 2. The moon in opposition with another person's sun sign 3. The moon in the other person's Ascendant

Astrologically, the Moon is said to rule emotions. When you analyze the sun sign with the moon sign, you tap into the deeper emotions of people. You learn what they look for in a relationship, what kind of lover they will be and if they are right for you. Ordinary Sun Sign matches just don’t provide that kind of depth. Why is this so important?
The Sun The Sun is who you are at the core of your being. It vitalizes you and gives you energy. Your sun sign describes what you must have to feel vital and alive. When your Sun is in a sign that is compatible with the astrological sign placements of your partner's Moon, it supports that aspect of their personality. The partner’s energies will be energized (Sun) and more freely expressed when you're together and they, in return, will make you feel loved at the core of your being when there is an emotional connection (Moon).
The Moon The Moon shows your inherent subconscious and emotional nature, how you form bonds, what you need to feel nurtured and cared for, and how you nurture and care for others. When your Moon is compatible with the signs your partner's planets occupy, you support, deepen, soften, comfort, and inspire those aspects of their personality. As an example: if your Moon is in a sign that is compatible with your Jungian relationship sign partner's sun sign, you will make them feel comfortable and secure at the core of their being, and in return, they will energize your emotional nature to encourage and care for them. You may even feel connected on a soul level.
