The big three of astrology consists of the Sun, the Moon and the ascendant. The Sun is your conscious self and the core of your personality, the ascendant is the mask you wear in the outer world and the Moon is your emotions.
Besides your emotional nature, the Moon also talks about:
- your mother
- your inner child and you as a parent
- how you want to be taken care of.
As you can see, the Moon is about the deeper layers of your personality. It is formed early in childhood, when all you could do is to hope that your parents will take care of you.
The Moon shows the behavioral patterns you learned early on. It shows if you can get and give yourself the love we all need.
Your habits are also represented by the Moon. The Moon is the celestial object the closest to us, and it has a big influence. This planet brings periodicity and fluctuations.

The Tenth House in the Natal Chart
The tenth house is traditionally associated with the sign Capricorn.
If you know some astrology, you know that this sign is ambitious, persistent, makes a good manager, but on the other hand, doesn’t know what to do with emotions.
The Moon is in detriment in Capricorn, which means that it’s somewhat weakened here. The same is true for the tenth house.
Here’s a list of the life areas the tenth house represents in astrology:
- your social standing
- one of your parents
- fame and promotion
The tenth house describes how the world sees you. The cusp of tenth house is the Midheaven, and it correlates to the highest point of the sky that everyone can see. Similarly, your Midheaven represents what everyone can see about you and how society evaluates you.

Natal Moon in the Tenth House
This is a strange placement for sure!
The Moon is traditionally associated with your home, family and private life. Well, the tenth house is the exact opposite. It governs public image, career, authorities.
What is in tenth house, becomes visible to the public. This is especially true if you have a planet conjunct the Midheaven. The Moon in the tenth house tells that people see you as gentle, caring, and you often end up in a career where you are in the public eye. People have an insight into your life, you don’t really have privacy with the Moon here. You are a well-known person in your community.
Luckily, you enjoy this fame. The Moon shows what makes you comfortable, and if it is located in the tenth house, you love attention.
Actually, you have a deep need for recognition with this placement. You are charismatic and feel at home in the limelight. Even if you don’t become a celebrity (although some people with this placement do), you will be a well-known member of your communities.
The Moon in the tenth house suggests that your public image is very important to you. You are emotionally attached to it and try to obtain a positive reputation. The Moon here usually makes you loved in the eyes of the public. The sign of your Moon tells how you express the energies of this luminary.
The negative side of this position is an increased sensitivity to the opinion of others. You want to live up to the expectations of people, but this makes you vulnerable. You have a perfect image of yourself, and chasing this unattainable ideal can be the source of great suffering.
The Moon represents your mother in astrology (or the more nurturing parent). The Moon in the tenth house suggests that your mother was very successful in her career, in some cases this placement tells that she was a public figure in some form, or a person of high social standing.
Moon in the Tenth House and Career
The Moon represents what you need and what makes you feel safe and nurtured. For a person with the Moon in the tenth house, their career is a source of emotional safety. Nothing can make this person feel down as much as if they are not recognized for their work.
Your work is tied to your emotions and your emotions are tied to your work. If you have your natal Moon in the tenth house, it can happen that you make emotion-based decisions.
A natal Moon in the tenth house indicates success with female audiences. Any planet in the tenth house is a strong career indicator. With the Moon here, you could do well in a job where you work mainly with women.
A career related to public relations can be a good choice, too, depending on the rest of the birth chart. Other careers related to the Moon, such as real estate, hospitality, taking care of others or being a merchant can also suit you, but again, you have to consider the whole chart in such complex questions.
If you have your Moon in the tenth house, you are usually very successful in your career. You also have a good relationship with your bosses or the authority figures in your life. The Moon here tells that you are often even emotionally attached to them (not romantically, though). These people tend to be females.
The Moon is famous for its quick changes. It’s constantly changing, and it’s the quickest celestial body in astrology, staying in each sign for two and a half day (comparison: Pluto changes sign approximately every 20 years). You can expect fluctuations in your career with the Moon in the tenth house. It’s possible that you will change your profession a few times until you find the perfect one.
You are ambitious, and how loved you feel is based on your achievements. A Moon here prefers a successful career to raising a family.
