This is What Your Moon Sign Reveals About Your Inner Being

Like Us!

Knowing one’s true self and inner being is a requisite for finding true happiness, peace and harmony. Your sun sign might shed light on how you express yourself and give to the world, but your moon sign is highly reflective of who you are on the inside.

Read below to discover what your moon sign reveals about what makes you feel happy, safe and content.

Moon in Aries
Aries, as one of the fiercest fire signs, feels most at home when they are given an outlet to channel their bold, creative spirit. Aries thrives when they are at the head of the pack, leading the group and taking risks.

In relationships, Aries are most happy when everything is laid out on the table. They’re not interested in sugarcoating things for the sake of being non-confrontational.

Moon in Taurus
Taurus is most at home within nature, which is why they often fill their spaces with other living entities, such as plants and animals. They also like to stick to their rituals and habits, many of which revolve around the physical comforts of life.

They seek out partners who are reliable, trustworthy and sensual.

Moon in Gemini
Gemini love to be stimulated mentally and feel most comfortable when people are adequately communicating with them on all fronts. They love exploring new ideas and getting to see the world from different perspectives. They love even more getting to spread their own knowledge to others.

In a relationship, Gemini especially need the aforementioned communication.

Moon in Cancer
The Moon’s home sign is in Cancer. This lends to Cancers finding their comfort in the themes of the Moon, such as home life, spending time with family, and being left alone to explore the inner workings of the self.

When with a partner, Cancers need someone who can open up to them and reciprocate the sharing of one’s deepest emotions, thoughts and feelings.

Moon in Leo
Often referred to as the “king of the jungle,” Leos feel their best when they are treated like they feel--special and worthy of praise. Their soul thrives when they have ample opportunity to play and have fun, as well as when they can demonstrate their creative minds.

Leos also have giant hearts and gain quite a bit from giving to others, whether it be through gifts or entertainment.

Moon in Virgo
Virgos feel most fulfilled when they know that they are providing value through their talents and skills. They find that the most beautiful things in life are the ones that are both simple yet effective. You thrive when you are in your element, in a familiar place.

Virgos seek out partners who are reliable, accountable and responsible.

Moon in Libra
Just as their sign would suggest, Libras feel most comfortable when they can achieve a healthy balance in their life. When things are flowing in harmony, you are at peace and can see all of the world’s beauty. While you are definitely social, you also need alone time to reflect on the things you truly want in life.

One thing you can work on is not saying ‘yes’ when you really want to say ‘no’ to people who ask things of you.

Moon in Scorpio
Just as Scorpios are mysterious and complex, it makes sense that they thrive when experiencing the most intense of emotions. Particularly, during some type of transformation or rebirth. Scorpios are most content when working to achieve these processes, whether it be through some creative endeavor or spiritual experience.

Scorpios seek out passionate, deep relationships with partners who can provide their utmost loyalty to them.

Moon in Sagittarius
Sagittarius easily feel suffocated or restrained when they are not allowed to move about the world freely and as they choose to do so. This means that they typically hate the mundane aspects of life, such as the routines so many people find themselves doing, day in and day out. This is why they are most comfortable being active souls, exploring outside and exercising their bodies.

To find even greater measures of happiness, Sagittarius can match their physical endeavors by equally stimulating their minds and spirits.

Moon in Capricorn
Capricorn finds comfort and happiness when they feel accomplished and productive. Furthermore, they are most content when they garner respect from their peers because of their diligent work ethic. They thrive in an organized environment that is filled with quality people and objects.

These traits carry over into their relationships, as they seek out only the finest of partners that will give them a lasting partnership filled with quality time. But, in order to do so, they also need to be willing to be vulnerable.

Moon in Aquarius
Aquarius thrive when they are being stimulated both mentally and socially. Not only do they absolutely love their friends, but they also need some sort of way to express their unique selves. Finding a creative channel will help achieve the contentment they seek.

Their independent nature means that they do not like partners who suffocate them. A partner who can exist alongside the Aquarius without being too “clingy” will win over their heart.

Moon in Pisces
Pisces have a strong tie to the other worlds that all of us so often visit--the worlds of fantasy, dreams and the spirit. Pisces thrives when they feel connected to these realms, whether they connect through some creative outlet or even a spiritual practice, such as yoga or meditation.

Because Pisces are so sensitive and aware of what is going on around them, they can struggle to understand when they are feeling their own emotions versus someone else’s. Especially in relationships, the Pisces needs to be able to distinguish between the two, or they risk losing who they truly are.

Video: What Do You Think Humans Will Look Like 100 Years From Now?

It’s hard to predict what the future has in store for mankind as a species. We can make educated guesses as to what life will look like for the average human 100 years from now--and a lot of it revolves around integrating the amazing technologies we’ve developed into the human body itself.

You’ve undoubtedly seen some of this technology already. Prosthetics for missing limbs, bones, joints, and even gadgets that keep our hearts beating regularly. We’ve seen scientists modify the genes of animals and plants.

Eventually, humans will have to face the morality of “chasing perfection,” so to speak. Or the dilemma we run into once we start to strive for a perfect biological human being.

Futurist and Harvard researcher, Juan Enriquez, is here to tell us that is chasing this “perfection” that will ultimately save mankind as a species from some sort of massive extinction event.

Events of mass extinction have already occurred on Earth at least five times, one of which completely wiped out the dinosaurs. Given this knowledge, we know that it is highly likely that mankind is up next on the docket--unless we can figure out a way to survive it.

Watch the TED talk below as Juan sheds light on humanity’s only hope for survival. He discusses how mankind will eventually start to alter the fundamental aspects of our own genetics, organs and cells to cope with extreme living conditions.

"If you believe that extinctions are common and natural and normal, and occur periodically, it becomes a moral imperative to diversify our species,” Juan explains.

Juan goes on to explain that if mankind wants to have any chance of living past just such an event, we need to become what Nikolai Kardashev calls a Type III civilization. Or, a civilization that is capable of harnessing all of the energy within our own galaxy--a civilization that has altered mankind so much, it would be completely unrecognizable by today’s standards.

"To become an intra-Solar System civilisation, we're going to have to create a Type III civilisation, and that looks very different from what we've got here,” Juan tells us.

By watching the video above, we can see that, should humanity rise to the occasion, mankind’s destiny is something most of us wouldn’t have imagined even in our wildest dreams.

Maybelline's First Male Model Has a Ton of Critics--And His Father Just Shut Them All Down

Makeup giant Maybelline has gained their first male model, and as one might imagine, he’s received quite a bit of criticism from homophobic people on social media.

Like blogger Matt Walsh, who posted a picture of Maybelline’s Manny Gutierrez accompanied by his thoughts on the makeup company hiring a man like Manny:

“Dads, this is why you need to be there to raise your sons.”

This didn’t sit well with Manny’s father, who reached out to Manny to tell him to spread the word that he’s been an active participant in Manny’s life for as long as he can remember, and that he’s not going to tolerate such hateful ideas.

Manny proceeded to share a screenshot of the conversation Manny’s father wanted to have with people like Matt Walsh:

As you can see, his father handled the situation with the kind of class that people like Matt Walsh lack entirely. He doesn’t resort to name-calling or insults, but instead tells Matt that he suspects Matt doesn’t “[know] anybody from the LGBT community,” because if he did, he wouldn’t be saying the things he’s saying.

Then, Manny revealed that his father actually works for him and is a large part of his life:

Another great thing about this type of conversation?
Conversations like the one Manny’s father put forth have been seen to help create more accepting attitudes and perspectives from people who hold prejudiced views of the LGBT community.

Grad students David Broockman and Joshua Kalla recreated a controversial study that found increased levels of tolerance from folks who were asked if they had ever been discriminated against in their lives.

"Canvassers asked people to talk about a time they were treated differently. Most people have been judged because of gender, race or some other issue,” said Broockman to NPR last April. "For many voters, they reflect on it, and they realize that's a terrible feeling they don't want anyone to have.”

Still, Matt Walsh isn’t convinced. He wrote in The Blaze that he doubts male models hired by makeup companies (referencing CoverGirl’s first male ambassador, James Charles, and Maybelline’s Manny Gutierrez) had prominent father figures in their lives:

"I do not know the life story of our friends James and Manny. I’m told that at least one of them comes from an intact family where a father was present and active in the home. Perhaps that really is the case. It’s certainly possible — though unlikely, I would think — that a boy could have the best dad in the world and still turn into a makeup model."

Funny, isn’t it, how people make such bold comments without knowing a single thing about the people they’re criticizing. What do you think about this recent feud on social media?

This Man Spends His Days Hunting Treasure Underwater--This Is What He’s Found

Treasure hunting is typically a profession only found in video games and fictional stories, but Jake Koehler has made it a reality for himself.

Jake spends most of his time underwater searching for the various things that often get dropped into the ocean. Much of it is not too surprising. GoPro cameras, smart phones, knives and guns make up a good portion of the items he typically discovers underneath the water’s surface. But, that’s not all Jake does.

Jake also keeps a small set of tools on hand with him when he dives so that he can help clean up the large amount of trash that litters the ocean. The types of trash that marine life often find themselves hindered by or even trapped under.

In the video, we can see Jake cutting turtles and fish loose from different fishing lines, hooks and pieces of trash that they’ve haphazardly wandered into.

Perhaps the best thing we love about Jake is that he rarely ever keeps anything that he finds in the water. Instead, he tries to find their original owners to return the lost items. And any weapons he finds are turned into the local police department.

“I was able actually to make a full-time job doing what I love to do and helping out the environment,” Jake says. “So if you guys have a dream, and you want to possibly help out the environment a little bit, go for it man! Give it a try.”

How cool is that?

Be sure to share with friends and loved ones who would love to hear about Jake’s awesome treasure hunting adventures!

A Few Reasons Why Some People Are Starting to Snort Raw Cacao

No, your eyes do not deceive you. People around the world have started engaging a new practice that is typically only seen when doing drugs like cocaine--snorting raw cacao to gain a healthy boost of energy.

How will this affect you? Those who snort raw cacao report feeling refreshed, energized and fully awake, and these effects happen almost instantly. The best part? Unlike coffee, this energetic high won’t cause you intense jittery feelings accompanied by anxiety or nervousness.

This type of high is much different, and it’s leading many people to believe that it could replace many of the substances we regularly use today, such as caffeine and other recreational drugs.

Do a bit of research and you’ll quickly learn that snorting raw cacao is actually becoming a fairly common ritual in the European club scene. Entire parties and events have been based around the consumption of raw cacao in lieu of substances like cocaine, ecstasy and the like. Berlin has even seen a monthly gathering of ravers who dance the night away while maintaining a healthy raw cacao buzz.

Snorting chocolate?
You’re not actually snorting chocolate. Although raw cacao is an ingredient in chocolate, the chocolate we largely eat today is processed by mixing it in with milk and sugar. However, seeds from the cacao tree have been used traditionally by ancient cultures seeking to heighten brain function and clarity.

Raw cacao causes the body to release a strong amount of endorphins into one’s bloodstream, creating feelings of euphoria and happiness. Additionally, cacao contains tyrosine, a compound that affects dopamine levels in the brain. And, as many of us know, dopamine is the same brain chemical that gets altered by so many other drugs people consume today.

Kingston University, based in London, conducted a study using their team of cyclists and discovered that consuming raw cacao helped them to perform better. They were able to go faster and travel farther. The theory behind this is that epicatechin, a compound found in cacao, widens blood vessels, allowing for increased levels of oxygen consumption by the muscles.

Not into the whole snorting thing?
No worries. You can get the same effects of snorting raw cacao by simply mixing at least 2 teaspoons of the substance into a drink, like coffee or tea.

If you’re looking for a safe, effective, legal way to get a bit of a high going, raw cacao is definitely something to put on your bucket list.

There have only been a couple of people so far who advocate against the snorting of raw cacao. One of them is Doctor Jordan Josephson, who tells us that snorting anything isn’t really that great for you:

“Snorting chocolate powder is not safe, because the powder is perceived by the nose as a foreign toxic substance.” This can cause “damage [to] the microscopic hairs, or cilia, and membranes of the nose, causing problems with their ability to work correctly, as well as possible scarring.”

So, as with most recreational substances, practice moderation and control when indulging the senses. Otherwise, it’s worth a try!
