People who have Moon in aspect to Uranus in their birth chart love and thrive on the surprised reactions and love to always push the boundaries and question what is « normal ». Don’t tell them how they should dress, and behave, who they should date and how they should respond to social interactions.

Uranus is the planet of innovation, so they could enjoy spending a lot of time on Internet, on new technology, regardless of their age. They probably have interest for Astrology, UFO, anything kind of unusual and untraditional. If Moon is in Aquarius, then it’s full on eccentric.
