Moon in Sagittarius
Because the Moon is in aversion to its own domicile while being in this zoidion, it cannot see issues related to domesticity, the home and emotion very well. For this reason, these natives are considered to be restless at heart and have a hard time settling down in one place. Jupiter as lord of the Moon, encourages broader range of experience than what the Moon is used to. As a result, there are likely to be more emotional highs and lows for this person than usual. It is an indication of life on an emotional roller-coaster. The Moon is naturally more timid, but while in this sign, it usually indicates one who is outgoing and friendly. Sometimes they lack reserve, and because of the Moon's aversion to its own domicile, these natives may say something without seeing before hand what impact it may have on another's feelings. They usually feel they need more freedom than most and often have a hard time finding where they belong until their later years. This may create a fondness for the outdoors and nature. The Moon here may also indicate a single-minded attachment to dogmatic philosophical ideals or religious principles.
In a diurnal chart, the heat of the day rarifies and purifies the emotions represented by the Moon. This may have the effect of creating an idealistic view of their relationships and may make it harder for them to see the flaws, possibly creating an emotional disconnect from reality. As a result, they may be taken by surprise at times by admissions of unhappyness from others close to them. The emotional highs and lows are tempered significantly by a decrease in sensitivity. Restlessness may not be as much of a problem. They are more likely to be certain about what they want out of life and to have dogmatic religious views or philosophical principles.
In a nocturnal chart, the cool and moist of night amplify these same qualities in the Moon. This has the effect of creating greater contrariety and swings of mood. Both restlessness and sensitivity are increased. Some say that this is a "seer moon" indicative of one with psychic ability. These natives are very sympathetic to the needs of others and often go out of their way to help. Philanthropy is common. Because the lord of the Moon is not of the sect in favor, they may have a harder time finding their true path in life. They are likely to be less attached to any particular religious philosophy.
