The difference between моя, моё, and мой

I know they all mean the same thing, but when do you use them?

моя - "my" about objects with feminine gender

мой - "my" about objects with masculine gender

мои - "my" about plural objects

мое - "mine" in general (Это мое! - This is mine!) or "my" about objects with neuter gender

Ex:

Моя книга (my book - f.g.), мой компьютер (my computer - m.g.), мои книги (me books - plural), мое кольцо (my ring - n.g.)

моего - "mine" about objects with masculine gender in genitive case

свой - English doesn't have this kind of word, but meaning is "oneself's" (mine/our/your/her/his/their)

свое - about objects with neuter gender

свой - about objects with masculine gender

своя - about objects with feminine gender

свои - plural

Ex:

У него (есть) свое кольцо (he has his own ring) - "есть"(be) can be used in sentence or not in this case

У нее (есть) свой компьютер (She has her own computer)

У меня (есть) своя книга (I have my own book)

У нас (есть) свои книги (We have our own books)

There's мои too! They are the feminine:моя, masculine: мой, neuter: моё, plural: мой, forms of my/is mine - according to the gender of what is being possessed.
