Native American Moon Signs
Just as the Moon is, Native American moon signs are reflective. The Moon does not have a light of its own but reflects the light of the Sun. Sun signs describe how the world sees us, the visible light that all can see. Moon signs are our shadow selves, the faint reflection of our personality hidden in the darkness. This part of our personality may be hidden even from ourselves. They require introspection and close attention to shine.
The month in which you were born determines Native American moon signs. Each month has its own fullest moon which is held as sacred and is honored in ritual and ceremony. By knowing and honoring our Moon sign we expand our awareness of ourselves and our interaction with the universe itself. Each full moon expresses certain aspects of the personality and has attributes that reflect its seasonal characteristics.
