The Moon represents our emotions, how we express ourselves and how we deal with our innermost needs. It can showcase how we habitually act, our reactions and our instinctual patterns.
Understanding the characteristics of each zodiac sign and which one is playing a vital role in the sky each day can help us understand ways we can help ourselves and harmonize with the natural energy of the day.
When we focus on the invitations that each zodiac sign can offer, we can minimize polarizing energy and maximize supporting ourselves.
The Moon orbits Earth in 28 days, meaning it cycles all twelve of the zodiac signs lingering through each for 2-2 1/2 days. When the Moon wades through each zodiac sign it can also affect you. A shift in the zodiac sign that the moon is in means a shift in the mood.
New sign, new vibe.
