Our psyche(Soul) has been the most mysterious and interesting topic of study since like forever. Walking on the footsteps of Freud, specifically his psychoanalytic theory, I have taken his concept of three aspects of the human psyche:
1. Basic instinct or our primitive sense.
2. Ego or our interaction with the world.
3. Moral instinct or our idealistic values.
Each and everyone of us has a unique pattern of thinking and feeling, which according to one of the most popular ancient subject Astrology, is mostly decided by our moon signs during birth. But I say it is mostly because there are other factors like Nakshaktras, padas, aspects, etc which narrows down to your unique psyche. But today I will be focusing only on your moon signs for this post.
