The Astrology Of Gifts – Buy By The Moon Sign

woman in surreal futuristic bedroom

The astrology of gift-giving is really very simple.

We tend to buy gifts for other peeps according to our Moon Sign & if we know the other person’s Moon Sign, then that is a brilliant way to choose a present for them.

eg; My Moon in Libra will be insanely thrilled with anything gorgeous & scented.

Moon in Aquarius loves cool new gadgets.

Moon in Aries likes vouchers so that they are in charge of how your kind thought is spent.

Feed the Moon in Taurus. They adore gifts of beautiful food and/or meals out. A hamper?

Moon in Kataka will croon over antique/vintage.

Moon in Gemini likes a new experience so tickets to a performance do it.

Leo Moon requires official luxury like a bottle of brand name champagne, something they can name-drop and/or music.

Scorp Moon? I’m too scared to say.

Saggo Moon just wants you to top their frequent flyer points and/or maybe something like a surfboard.

Cap Moon? Whatever helps them be classic and enduring through time; Anti-aging skincare, a term deposit.

Moon in Pisces? Anything magic.

And what of Moon in Virgo?  They tell you, conveniently several months before the actual time you might have considered buying them a gift and only to help you out, because they would hate to think of you stressing out re what to get them when the Virgo has already got the details ready at hand.

I am Cap Moon and I like jewels, period. Gold involved preferentially and stones.

With real stones, I hate Swarovski, thats not real jewelry, is just glass that wont last.

this moon in pisces always loves magical gifts, and recommendations for gifts are always something witchy, something for divining, transformation, or casting spells. They always seem to me to be a gift that goes on giving… One year my closest sister gifted me with rose absolute – more expensive than gold i believe… I kept the tiniest vial for years and years, and was able to use for very sacred rituals such as births and deaths…. Yesterday I was gifted with frankincense, cedarwood, and patchouli essential oils totally happy!

I laughed when I finally saw my moon sign! “Scorp Moon? I’m too scared to say.” I’m 20 and I still make a long Christmas lists. (4 pages long) I of course don’t expect to get everything on it, I just like to give people lots of options. I’ve had hot tub on my christmas list since the 2nd grade. =p And oh yes some of the stuff I put on my list definetly disturbed my mom, like some of the CDs I want(Kotton Mouth Kings, Axe Murder Boyz, Metalica), and movies(silence of the lambs, rob zombie movies, the bad… Read more »

Scorp Moon: Good quality anything wrapped up beautifully!

I am a sucker for anything papery and beautiful, though I haven’t used snail mail in an age – must be the Moon in the 6th!

Food, wine etc. are nice but not thrilling – alcohol is always a give-way wrapped up… love the surprise. I don’t love gift vouchers however useful they are, shopping can seem like hard work.

Hmmmm. I can vouch for the new experiences for Gem’s but with such divergent tatstes peeps have a high time keeping up with what I love. Concert tickets would be great but I also love books and stationery *drool* lol Have noticed a propensity for people to buy me things they would like to get as gifts – I have to be careful what I say about other peoples tastes (I usually end up with said item or similar as a gift at some stage when I was just saying how the item they had bought themselves suited them).

Kataka Moon and not particularly into vintage or antiques. My decor is streamlined and while not quite minimalist, love modern clean lines but have always lived in queenslander or colonial homes (until now). What I love most is the thought behind it, and something top quality (Saturn conj Asc?). Love good books, book vouchers and friends making a fuss i.e. organising a dinner/lobng lunch (Leo Sun). Most fav gift of late from Toros, sis and bro-in-law – a tibetan bell, divine. And of course anything magic – like our Mystic (top quality magic)! (Fish Asc)

For me – this is not true, Leo with a Cancer moon and I HATE anything vintage. I would much prefer a Leo-Style Gift.
I think it is true for my Aqua partner though – he has Sag moon and loves getting sports equipment.

True about the Aries moon preferring vouchers. It saves me having to re-gift, which I do frequently. Goddess, I love my Leo bestie, BUT once for my birthday, she gave me a faux baroque candleholder studded with diamantes and complete with a sky blue candle. WTF is an Aries moon supposed to do with THAT?

Say thank you and regift it. Overseas. Or go full irony and hide it in a closet “shrine”. That would so require my utmost diplomacy and tact, just the word “baroque” conjures up nooks and crannies I can never keep completely dust free.

my evil cancerian aunt once gave me a cheesecloth tent dress, 2 sizes too big, knee length, with a MUSHROOM PATCH stuck on the front of the bust, pricetag from k-mart still attached. looked like she found it at the chocolate and magazine bit on her way to the counter.

Not sure about the food for Toro moon, unless it’s fine dining? I did give myself a slap up dinner for my phhrrm-tieth. The thing about gifting when it comes my way is that most folks are SO off that it saddens me deeply – sad because they have wasted their money and the world’s resources, sad because they have tried and failed, sad because they don’t really know me, and so very sad when it’s family because after knowing me for AN ENTIRE LIFETIME it is abundantly clear that they will never know me. It really is deeply upsetting.… Read more »

I am not so true to form here on saggesque presents bar tickets to see my darling wives dotted around the world.

sporting equipment gifting will most likely be met with a “do you think I have put on weight” eyebrow

don’t buy me clothes.
unless you know me really really well.
I would prefer candles to clothing
family learned this early on when I cashed in anything I got at xmas for a packet of cigarettes and a coffee (which was about the cost, lol)

tickets to shows and amazing dinner dates also favoured. that or something very practical.

I was all prepared to disagree, for myself at least. Then I read your description of Moon in Aries: “likes vouchers so that they are in charge of how your kind thought is spent.”
I’m embarrassed to admit this is true of me. I have such specific tastes that many gifts (shush, don’t tell anyone) disappoint me. Especially from my family, who have a tendency to give me stuff that represents who they *wish* I were. (Sigh.)

Me and my Virgo Moon are killing ourselves laughing, in between gnashing our teeth in frustration. The birthday looms next week and we know, just *know* that no one will pay attention to our carefully constructed wishlists and not-so-subtle “hints” AGAIN. And we will be forced to smile an say how much we like what you got us, but why can’t you just FOLLOW THE RULES?!

Really Saggigal? I have Moon in Aqua and am into sleek gadgetry. Though I LOVE anyone topping off my frequent flyer miles and I do own a surfboard, massage vouchers always welcome, throw in a hot boy to do it and I shall pray on your temple forever..so I sort of straddle the Aqua/Saggo gift vibe. Cannot stand it when peeps give me perfume without prior pre-authorization, have Venus in Leo, V Rising so I do get control freakery about scent.. speaking of gadgetry, I just lost a load of work on a USB flash drive I had it saved… Read more »

Ha, boy in a box … Yes a gadget that I may like! 🙂
but no, gadgets leave me cold. The more complicated the less I like it. I’m very tactile and I like things that feel soft in my hands… My progressed chart is full of Taurus so maybe that explains it.
I always prefer experience based pressies over belongings in general- anything my body/ mind can get into. I like colour, and movement- concert tickets, parties and travel!

Dream fantasy gift? A suprise plane ticket to mystery exotic destination. Bliss!

for me- moon in aqua- this is not true! i hate gadgets in general- my moon in aqua is more along the abstract thought/theories manifestation.

my fave gifts are travel, books, and massage vouchers…

actually no, i just thought of one gadget i LOVE and have received as birthday pressies- cameras (0bsessed with them).

Same for my aqua moon hubby. His swearing is proportionate to closeness of technology (eg, the closer it is, the louder and more profane he gets). Except where cameras are concerned. We have masses of them, from old box cameras through to latest digital.

His ideal gifts are holidays, books on art or weird scientific theories, and old bicycles that he can do up.

This Virgo Moon is guilty as charged. If people are going to insist on giving me a gift, then I will at least set them a practical task to achieve for me… And usually orchestrate a group ‘collection’ of sorts, so there is just one really useful gift that I actually want, everyone’s contributed, and we’re all happy.
This year my friend’s all pitched in and bought me British Citizenship… See, practical and fabulous.

My moon in Libra recoils at most scented gifts … is that my Virgo asc taking over? I’ve always thought that Venus had a big impact on aesthetics – is there any truth to this? Mine’s in Scorp and I’ve always been drawn to things with a Scorpionic edge.

it does, however, make affairs of love a bit odd… to say the least. i am assuming it’s the dichotmy between libra sun and scorponic venus. but what do i know? i am here to learn.

My moon in scorp means many people don’t get want i want ( and no its not a gift voucher from the local sex shop) so i do start giving hints months before just to help them out.

I too have my moon in scorp and no a sex shop voucher is not going to cut it. I’m not sure what dominates more here the leo sun or scorp moon or whether for different reasons they agree, but I’d be pissed off if someone went there. Alternating between sunny disdain and cold weariness at ignorance would be too distracting from celebrating me which would be a downer all round.

my moon in leo isn’t so name droppy…. unless it’s a name i like. oh. maybe that counts.

so champagne is probably out, but essential oils (a brand i approve of.. and trust me, they know who that is) – yes.

is it possible that my multiple stellum in libra can outweigh a moon in leo? my emotions are very leonic… my tastes are decidedly libran… but yes, even in that beauty and sensual delight… i had better approve of the company.

lord. no wonder so many people forget my birthday. *LAUGH*
