Navigating through life and all the unexpected events, narratives and story lines can be difficult at times but if we pay attention, it can also be enlightening. When we feel confused or misunderstand something about ourselves or even others, it’s nice to have sources that can help us see things a little clearer.
If we are closely related to anything, it is that huge bright mass that greets us every sun down, our Moon. In Astrology, the Moon rules our emotions. It contributes to the way we feel about absolutely everything. By understanding our reactions with each Moon, it can help us interpret ourselves and things a little better. If we study how we feel on certain days, we can learn how to flow through life smarter and more beneficial.
Life is completely experiential. The things we go through and the things that happen to us all have an important message that can contribute to our growth.
As the Moon and Earth rotate through the sky, the Moon rests on a different sign every 2 to 3 days. The Moon moves our mind just like it moves the oceans tides. It is the strongest connection we have to anything celestial. If we pay attention to its cycles and the sign it resides in, it can give us insight on why we are feeling a certain way during those specific days.
