The Difference Between Sagittarius Sun & Moon...
The sun sign is more apparent to others, while the moon sign is felt more on the inside. This makes a Sagittarius sun a more shallow, outward representation of the sign than the Sagittarius moon, which has more depth and is felt more on the inside.
The fire sign with wisdom, Sagittarius suns and moons really believe they see the world more clearly than most people. After all, they are a mature, universal sign. But the fire signs always have a bit of immaturity to their nature. They operate under the power of inspiration. They are impulsive and lack the stability of earth, the analytical thoughtfulness of air, or the sensitivity of water. When a thought, feeling or desire strikes them, they act on it immediately. Many people see their nature as fun and exciting. Others see it as rash and crude.
Because of this fiery, slightly immature nature, the sign of Sagittarius finds a more suitable home in the position of sun sign than moon sign. The moon acts in a less conscious manner than the sun. The moon is more instinctual; whereas, the sun is more self-aware. So, the impetuous, impulsive nature of Sagittarius is more guarded in the sun sign position than in the moon sign position.
All Sagittarius people complain and judge. They are snarky and critical. But in the Sagittarius moons, it's much more apparent because they can't repress it to suit the situation. The Sagittarius sun is better able to hold their tongue in situations where things are better left unsaid. Whereas, the Sagittarius moon just can't stand to let things go unsaid. If it's true, it should be said, and no one should be offended because it's the truth. The Sagittarius sun sign is better able to look at the people they are speaking to, wait a second and think about where the very judgmental statement that's on the tip of their tongue will take them in the long run. Sometimes the remarks still slip out, but they have more self-control than the Sagittarius moons.
Sagittarius suns are smoother and more diplomatic than Sagittarius moons.
Sagittarius moons have a harsh edge to them.
Their cynical nature is obvious.
Watch the facial expressions of a Sagittarius moon person. Their expressions demonstrate their judgmental minds constantly assessing every situation for its truthfulness or correctness in the context of the universe they understand better than anyone else. You can also see this in the Sagittarius suns, but there is a difference. In the suns, there is always a playful smile as they search for the right words to translate their thoughts into a witty, sarcastic one-liner. In the moons, the expression is more serious and wry, and even if their words come out with some sarcastic humor, you know they are meant to be serious. With the sun, you're never sure.
A Sagittarius sun is more like the news reporter who reads copy. They didn't write the words, but they always have them. They can choose whether or not to change them according to the mood of the audience or the appropriateness of the situation. In contrast, the Sagittarius moon actually wrote the news copy. They own the words and feel them deeply. Getting their message across to people is important to them. It's the message that matters, not the audience. The truth must be heard. It doesn't matter if people can't accept it.
