Knowing your astrological sign is really only half of the story. Sure, you will often connect to your sign at an almost shocking level, but there are always little things that stand out as being off.
The reason for this is due to the fact that while you may have been born under a specific zodiac sign, the moon may have actually been under a different sign, which also has an impact on your personality.
It's known as your "moon sign" and it can be completely different than your regular zodiac (also known as sun sign).
It is the answer to why you may feel like your normal zodiac sign doesn't fully express your true personality.
Your moon sign represents your inner emotions, and it's calculated by knowing where in the sky the moon was on your birthday, at the exact time you were born.
There are many calculators available online, and once you know what your moon sign is, it can reveal a whole other side to your personality.

You also have an impressive ability to recognize a new opportunity. When a new door opens, you jump right in.
That being said, make sure you take some time and think about what you're getting yourself into. You may find it difficult to get out of that situation once you've been in it for so long.
