The sun and moon are masculine and feminine archetypes. The moon is passive and reflects the light of the Sun.
The Lunar Perspective
The moon is the fastest-moving planet. It changes its appearance often, gives life [form], sustains [nurtures], and is destructive when necessary. With all of that in mind, studying the moon and all of its complexities is the same as studying your nature as a feminine being here on Earth.
Your mind is the filter that you experience life through. That is how different people can have different views, opinions, and feelings about the same topic. Vedic Astrology uses the moon horoscope where the house your moon sign is placed in is rotated to your ascendant. In this way, your reality, personality, ability to experience happiness, overcome obstacles, make adjustments, and how you feel about things can be seen from this placement.
Just like the moon you go through phases too. When you're working on self-care, cultivating mindfulness, and knowing when to seek guidance you get better at overcoming life's difficulties. So studying the moon and reconnecting to nature are powerful ways to shift into your true essence.
