Moon Beams

The Moon travels through all 12 zodiac signs each Lunar month, spending about two and a half days in each astrological sign--that’s at least 12 mood swings per month! The Moon in your birth chart carries the resonance of your intuition, emotions, empathy, and nurturance. The Moon is also the domain of the archetypal mother, the receptive yin energy of the divine feminine. 


Keywords: Lively, Passionate, Buoyant

“If you love me, you’ll fight with me!” Your feelings are easily inflamed–flaring-up like a sudden thunderstorm, then moving on to greener pastures. When a fiery Aries Moon is ruling your emotions, you are capricious, enthusiastic and effervescent. Lively and playful, you have the spirited exploratory nature of a teenager. Your emotional muse is Mars, the mythological god of war.  You love to win, and usually do. Hence the goddess of victory,  Nike, cheers you on your way. Arguments are soon forgotten by you–but those you’ve scorched with your temper are still scratching their heads, wondering what happened as they watch you lightly walk  away–never carrying a grudge. You won’t take kindly to interference from others–parents, teachers, lovers and even your boss. You simply don’t want to  be told what to do. You’re very independent and ready at a moment’s notice to adopt a new direction– to turn on a dime. Your motto under an Aries Moonbeam is: “Never look back.”


Keywords: Steady, Sensuous, Secure

Of all the zodiac signs, you have the Midas touch. You have a very strong emotional need to feel financially secure so that you can know that you’re safe in this world. You have money-wise common sense and an eye for beautiful things. You enjoy, and you need, to surround yourself with aesthetically pleasing art or decor.  You’re a natural curator and collector–anything from coins, stamps, photos, gold or silver!  You don’t mind working on the budget, especially if you can find the “extra” money for a spa day. You insist on having your favorite comforts around, and some self-indulgence feels just right to you (It’s a necessity!). With the Moon in Taurus, which is ruled by Venus the goddess of love, relationships and having a sense of belonging is very important to you. The Moon loves being in Taurus, the sign of the “green thumb.” This is the Moon’s best position for attracting wealth and the good things of life. 


Keywords: Expressive, Curious, Mercurial

Gemini Moonbeams bestow an emotional nature that is resourceful, quick-witted, and can turn on a dime. But, you may not slow down long enough to check in with how you really feel about something. You want to be on the move, happy to be a rolling stone. It’s a great time to enjoy travel, but you’re not too keen on waiting in line in airports or anywhere else. The Moon in Gemini gives you a wonderful emotional curiosity. If it is an otherwise stressful period, you’ll feel quite restless, fidgety and nervous. You’ll have a tendency to spread yourself too thin, due to an incessant curiosity and attraction to momentary excitement. Your inbox is likely to be full and you may not feel like stopping to return calls. A good time for socializing because you have an unusual take on an old idea and a lot to say about multiple subjects.


Keywords: Nurturing, Sensitive, Reflective

The Moon in Cancer is at her most powerful placement, lending you a depth and intensity of feeling. You’ll enjoy having time at home by the fire, with lovely aromas coming from the kitchen. Nurturing yourself and others comes naturally as you’ll have a strong maternal instinct. Cancer Moonbeams light up your domestic and family issues. You need to feel secure and you’ll seek reassurances that this is so. Your sensitivity to the moods of others is heightened—-you’re so “tuned-in” to their reactions and opinions that they become magnified in your own mind. Therefore, it is important for you to pull in, retreat to the comforts of home, and step away from the needs of others long enough to meet your own. Quiet time is a necessity, as well as surrounding yourself with loving friends and  family. 

Moon in LEO: FIRE

Keywords: Affectionate, Playful, Dramatic 

The regal Leo Lion or Lioness has no shyness about letting their feelings be known. In fact, with the Moon in Leo you’ll want to be noticed and you’re not above adding an extra dramatic flare–really big roars–to make sure that others recognize when you’re upset. In general you need others to take notice of you today. You want affection and appreciation–lots of it. You must have it, and some romance in your life too, or you’ll wither in sadness. Your deep need to love and be loved is a healthy drive under the Leo Moonbeams. It’s a time to give free hugs, and let your sunny disposition shine!


Keywords: Discerning, Practical, Cautious

It’s natural for you to be in the mood for exacting hard work. Virgo Moonbeams are perfect for closet cleaning! Your practical nature shines light on health and healing. Virgo is the sign of harvest and separating the wheat from the chaff.  Discernment is your life lesson. Neatness counts! So does cleanliness and personal hygiene. It’s a great time to start a new diet, because health is very important to you. This Virgo Moon is shy and retiring so you may prefer to work behind the scenes. You have a need to be of service to others. You’ll have a closer eye on the details, and the mistakes, so be careful not to immobilize yourself with perfectionism. Don’t become so obsessed with the trees that you forget about the forest!

Keywords: Empathic, Psychic, Imaginative

With the Moon in the deeply emotional waters of Pisces, you are super-sensitive. Your periods of meditation are deepened and your compassion broadened. You’ll soak up the “vibes” around you, including the feelings of others, like a psychic sponge! Therefore, you must protect yourself from disturbing environments. You’ll pick up the energy by osmosis, whether you want to or not. You may feel like withdrawing today in order to protect yourself. The very good news about the Moon in Pisces is the vivid imagination you’ll have. Fabulous for writing–especially poetry. Music and inspired art interest you now. If you can get comfortable and grounded with your mediumistic abilities to read minds, this can be a time of leaps in consciousness.
