The Moon conjunct the Moon in synastry creates a deep and powerful bond between two people. In most cases, this bond is quite positive.
The Moon is an important planet in synastry. It is one of the Luminaries, and as such, touches every area of our lives.
While most popular astrology emphasizes one’s Sun Sign, in many ways, the Moon is more important. It governs the day to day running of our lives, including those things that we do on an unconscious level.
A conjunction occurs when two planets are in the same place of the zodiac. When it occurs in synastry, it shows places in which two people are very much alike.
Moon Conjunct Moon in Synastry
When two people have Moon conjunct Moon in synastry, they understand each other on a deep and intuitive level. They get each other in a way that few others can.
Two people who have their Moon conjunct each other will be naturally be in sync and can at times act almost as one person.
Many astrologers will emphasize the emotional nature of Moon connections, and this is certainly the case. Yet, the Moon governs much, much more than the emotions.
The Moon is one of the two Luminaries and plays a key role in determining a person’s identity and personality. The Sun signifies a person’s ego and outward activities, while the Moon signifies their private selves and their habitual and even unconscious actions.
One of the downsides of Moon conjunct Moon is that the two could be almost too much alike. They will have the same weaknesses as well as the same strengths.
Unlike Sun conjunct Sun, however, Moon conjunct Moon does not generally cause difficulties with ego clashes. Instead, the main problem is that they are unable to balance each other.
While the Sun is the Luminary of the Day, the Moon rules the Night. This means that if one or both of the people involved were born at night, this aspect will be more powerful. If one person was born during the day and the other was born at night, the person born at night will tend to be the more dominant of the two.
All of the signs can be divided into Day and Night as well. The Day Signs are Aries, Gemini, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius. This aspect will be a little weaker if it occurs in these signs.
The Night Signs are Taurus, Cancer, Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn, and Pisces. Moon conjunct Moon will be a bit stronger in these signs. All of the special sign combinations for this aspect also occur in the Night Signs.
Taurus and Cancer
The Moon is exalted in Taurus and rules Cancer. If Moon conjunct Moon occurs in either of these signs, it will be incredibly positive and powerful. This aspect in and of itself will be enough to bring two people together and keep them together.
Scorpio and Capricorn
The Moon is in fall in Scorpio and in detriment in Capricorn. If this conjunct occurs in either of these signs, it will be complicated. They will still understand each other on a deep level. On the other hand, they will both have similar issues and difficulties, and it will be hard for them to balance each other or give each other support.
This aspect will generally impact one house in each person’s chart. This will show the area of life that is most influenced by the Moon-Moon connection.

Man’s Moon Conjunct Woman’s Moon Relationship
Moon conjunct Moon is an excellent aspect when it comes to a romantic relationship. From the moment they meet, they will feel like they have known each other for a lifetime.
They will understand each other so well that there will often be no need for words between them. They tend to know what the other is thinking and feeling without being told.
As the relationship deepens, they will find it easy to develop shared routines as they will naturally do things the same way.
They can become so close that they run the risk of becoming enmeshed if they are not careful. It might be good for both of them to consciously develop friendships outside of the relationship.
There is another reason to develop these friendships as well.
The planets are constantly moving and touching our birthcharts. These movements are known as transits. Some transits are helpful, but some are difficult.
Our Moons are particularly sensitive to transits. If two people have their Moons in the same place, they will both be facing difficult transits at the same time. This can make it hard for them to be able to support one another.
If they have outside friends, these friends can help when they are both going through a tough time.
Moon Conjunct Moon in Friendship
Friends with Moon conjunct Moon will usually become quite close. This is an aspect that brings people together as lifelong friends.
As with a romantic relationship, from the moment they meet, they will feel like they have known each other for years.
The bond between these two will tend to be closer than family and even closer than either of their romantic relationships.
This could lead to jealousy, but it is best for everyone to accept things as they are.
As is the case with a romantic relationship, it will be important for them to have others around for support. Because their Moons are in the same place, they will often experience difficult transits at the same time, which will make it hard for them to support each other during these times.
How to Tell if Moon is Conjunct Moon in Synastry
If two people have their Moon in the same sign, some of the influence of Moon conjunct Moon will be present.
The orb, or allowable margin of error, for the Moon is twelve degrees. The closer the aspect is, the stronger it will be.
While a close, strong conjunction will make the bond quite powerful, it also increases the likelihood that the two will experience hardships at the same time.
If the aspect is wider, there is more likely to be a time delay between difficulties, which will make it easier for them to support each other.
Twelve degrees is a wide orb, which makes it easier for the Moon to be within this orb from adjacent signs. In the case of Moon conjunct Moon, the two will understand each other more than they otherwise might.
They will not, however, develop the intimate bond they would if their Moons were in the same sign.
Moon conjunct Moon is a positive aspect in synastry. It will bring two people together with a intimate and powerful bond.
They will understand each other almost without words.
The downside of this aspect is that they run the risk of experiencing problems and hardships at the same time, making it difficult for them to support each other.
