The moon is constantly moving through and changing signs. It remains in each sign for about two and a half days. The energetic impact of the moon is the vibration we feel the most from the cosmos. As you vibrate higher and higher, you will become more sensitive and feel the affect of each moon phase. In our Universe there are cycles that we go through. It is important to your peace and growth to understand these cycles and flow with them. Resisting what a moon phase brings up is the worst you can do. Learn to appreciate the different energy given to us and make the most of each moon phase. You will also notice trends in behavior of people that correlate with the moon phases. This article describes how we feel under each moon phase and how to flow with them.
This is the beginning of a moon cycle. Under an Aries moon we feel ready to forget the past and move onward to the next adventure. We have the energy to begin new projects and have a creative drive. If your normal routine is to lay in bed till the afternoon, you are not going to agree with this moon phase. The energy we are blessed with under this moon is the perfect opportunity to work out and put energy into what we are personally passionate about. We may feel impatient, aggressive, and react quickly and sometimes wrongly to situations. However, we are able to laugh it off and move on to the next! Watch your temper and the need to win on these days. All activities are better if done solo. Just try to focus on yourself under this moon phase. Authenticity reigns!
Under a Taurus moon we feel the need to nourish ourselves and relax. We are more likely to take an afternoon nap, eat an extra bowl of ice-cream, and avoid a lot of social contact. We love to be in our homes or at least somewhere we are comfortable. Although the urge to be lazy is prominent, there is an opportunity to plant seeds of hard work and new habits. This is beautiful earth energy. We remember that we are human beings with 5 amazing senses to explore the world with. It’s a great time for grounding, loving the simple things, and evaluating your resources. Under a Taurus moon, I remember my love for our living room couch and find the most joy in cooking a meal for my family. With this phase, try to savor your life as your desire for a slow pace won’t match the hustle and bustle of the outside world.
Under this moon phase we are injected with high energy and the desire for stimulation. Interactions with strangers, roommates, and siblings are inspirational and fun! If you are a blogger, this is the day to werk hunny. You may all of the sudden become very talkative and witty. What would normally be a small exchange of “hey, how are you” to your neighbor might turn into a whole conversation. Explore your community and enjoy your own culture. You have no idea who people are and what they have to offer so try listening and truly communicating with people under this phase. Focusing might be hard, but you will be full of ideas. Speaking of distraction, social media is always poppin with Gemini energy around! Use this energy to get a lot done, learn, and socialize. You may take up a new hobby or meet someone new! This is also a good phase to have a party. Go on an adventure and let curiosity take over!
Under a Cancer moon we become especially emotional, sensitive, and the desire for nurturing from others increases. Due to the mass of emotions that come like a wave, it is actually a good time to access your own emotions and needs. Because you will be so sensitive, little things may trigger big emotions. Examine your psyche as to why you feel the way you do. It’s perfectly ok to cry under this phase! Honor the divine feminine and call your girl or mother to see how she’s doing. We all might be seeking a cuddle session under this phase. If you have no one to squeeze, try getting your feelings out in a creative way. For me it’s sappy poetry, but for you a simple diary entry will do. Go with the flow of the day (like the watery sign of cancer) and let emotions come and go. Your intuition will increase as well. It is a time for family, close friends, and getting to know yourself. Hiding at home will be favorited. Try to understand the weight of emotions on this day as there is a tendency for people to be whiney and oversensitive.
Under a Leo moon our desire to express ourselves goes overboard. Don’t let the haters kill your shine, go ahead and post the 3rd selfie you’ve taken today. Creative projects, romance, and partying become important to us. All the clubs will be going off so it is a great night to go out and celebrate. Spread the happiness any way you can during this time! Things like crowds, a hot date, and being appreciated will light you up (even if you usually don’t like to go out)! This phase is perfect for remembering why you’re the shit, your amazing worth, and your incredible individuality. However, it is important we recognize everyone is in this mood and don’t let egos disturb this joyous time. During a Leo Moon, wear your fav outfit, do something you are passionate about, and spoil yourself.
Under a Virgo moon we suddenly become aware of things. Details we missed pop out at us and we review our choices and ourselves. The need to be critical and organize come to the front of our psyche. This is actually the best moon phase to do work and to get things done. You will be particular about what you are doing so anything you produce should turn out well. You may yearn for a hot yoga class, a vegetarian meal, or to be in nature. A walk through the woods will calm the anxious vibes you feel. Try to transform the need to worry into the drive to work. It is also a great time for healing. Due to the fact you are criticizing yourself, you can take the opportunity to stop negative self talk, get to the root of the issue, improve, and heal. There is a heightened sensitivity to cleanliness as well. Practical, modest, and useful activities take precedence. It’s a great day to be of service, pray, detox, and purify.
Under a Libra moon we have the desire to be with others. Opposite to being under the Aries moon, we will see everyone’s point of view, be diplomatic, and seek a partner to do activities with. Social gatherings will have way more appeal. It’s a perfect time to meet someone new or go on a first date! You may “makeup” with people during this time for you’ve realized you enjoy their company or despise any kind of conflict. Shopping may also be an enjoyable pass time under this phase! Watch indulging in pleasure. We may become vain, surface level topics reign, and the meaning to “bae” takes on a whole new level. Flirting, as well as all types of communication increases. Art, visuals, and music are appreciated today. Beware of yearning for your ex during this time. The desire for a partner is only temporary and by the time the aries moon rolls around again you will be so over him! Under this phase, put on a cute outfit and just go mingle!
Under a Scorpio moon feelings of jealously, rage, suspicion, uncontrollable intensity come to the surface. It’s an amazing time to probe your psyche. Once you get past those negative feelings, you can discover new depths to yourself. Let the intensity take over you. You have no choice but to give into these vibes if you want to rise above them. Although there are chaotic emotions, sensitivity, and overwhelming passion, there are ways to benefit deeply from the intensity. It is a great time for healing, reflection, and regeneration. You can transform and truly change a bad habit or thought pattern. Relationships also become important but in a different way than a Libra moon. Nothing surface level will do! We desire deep, intimate, soul connections with people. Your sex drive will definitely increase. It is a time when serious bonds and connections can be established or strengthened. Emotional exchanges will be meaningful.
Under a Sagittarius moon we have the need for lighter emotional exchanges, freedom, adventure, and we have a big thirst for knowledge and fun. Try something new under this moon phase. A new restaurant, culture, or city! Going beyond your comfort zone is what is going to bring you peace. Topics like philosophy, religion, teaching, and learning things will dominate conversations. Everyone will be in a good mood if they are going with the moon phase flow. Worries are lessened because the here and now becomes the most exciting thing. All of the sudden we have faith in the goodness of the people around us. It is a lucky time and can bring in some wild vibes. However, don’t let the lackadaisical vibes distract you from taking responsibility for what needs to be done!
Under a Capricorn moon, things like work and routine become important. Emotions are put on the back burner as whatever is deemed practical and useful comes to the surface. It’s time to close deals, not feel. Reevaluate what you want to manifest in life and make plans to make it happen. Whatever you have planted in the Taurus moon phase will come to bloom here. Work on your foundation for future endeavors. Under this phase, learn to not be overly serious and controlling! We want to get things done and at any cost but we must remember our spiritual nature as well. With a moon in Capricorn, you may put a lot of pressure on yourself but after all, that’s what makes a diamond right? Here’s some advice from a Capricorn woman: grind smarter, not harder!
Under this phase we begin to question our existence. We feel very connected to the collective conscious. You may think something and then someone immediately says it. Social interactions also are favorited on this day. There may be an air of aloofness between people and yet a desire to be around them. Social media is very active during this phase. People are interested in humanitarian efforts, ideals, and seeing the big picture. You become detached from your emotions allowing you to see things from a different perspective. Float away from your own body and dream big. Grounding may be an issue during this phase. Try to balance the individual and the whole. Under this phase, you are more likely to be inventive, distant, and think logically.
Under this phase, everything you have been through and worked on accumulates and boils to the surface. The subconscious becomes the conscious. It is a great time for meditation, spiritual work, reflection, and healing. I find that napping and observing my dreams is extremely helpful under this phase. Dreams and the flow of the day will be very trippy. There is a constant shift of emotions so we experience a lot throughout the day. You may need to cry only to begin laughing five minutes later. You will be extremely sensitive, not only emotionally but energetically. Psychic abilities may increase. You may not want to participate with the material world on these days. You will want to go with the flow of your soul, not your routine schedule. It is an amazing day for insights, spiritual experiences, hiding under your covers, and creativity. Don’t be afraid to get lost in your own world, that’s when transcendence happens. However, beware of indulgence in laziness and fantasy.
Void of Course Moon
This is the astrological phenomenon known as the time when the moon has made it’s last aspect (interaction with another planet) and is waiting to move into the next sign. It’s a time when the moon isn’t really acting out a particular energy. As a result, we experience an eerie quietness on Earth. It’s a time when the cosmos say: dont move, just breathe! All of the sudden you feel stillness and have the desire to do nothing. It is one of my favorite times due to the quiet we feel as a collective.
