About This Class

In astrology, the sun sign gets the most air time and rightly so since the sun is the most influential part of both the sky and our birth charts. A sign that less people are aware of, but one that is equally important to know, is your moon sign.

Where your sun sign speaks of how others see you, your moon sign provides insight into how you see yourself and the parts you usually keep hidden from others. Knowing both of these signs can help you have a greater understanding of yourself. 

My hope for this course is that it helps you cultivate greater compassion for yourself through having a deeper understanding of why you operate the way you do.

Within this course, you'll learn:

  • How each of the Zodiac signs affect the moon
  • How to find your moon sign
  • What a Void of Course Moon is

And you'll receive access to a journal with a prompt and coloring page for each of the 12 Zodiac signs!

The Moon's Role in Astrology: the moon. Roles are instinctive reactions, and guides are unconscious. Mind. As humans, we generally cover up any characteristics or actions that seem primal or uncivilized, including our instinctive reactions. Feelings of being inferior or fear may come up as you're working with the moon and are faced with this animalistic and primal side of yourself. It's important to remember that we're all human and the parts of you that fill you with shame, or you find difficult to love our parts that millions of other people have. So don't be ashamed of them, just embraced them and work through them and know that you aren't alone. Even though the moon is associated with all the dark thoughts hidden in the corners of your brain, such as jealousy, anger, fear and anything else you try to keep hidden from the rest of the world. The moon is also responsible for the little delights you find in life. It is behind your ability to notice the first blooms in early spring, or the way the light catches a crystal or the feelings of slipping into a warm bubble bath . The moon at its core is the guiding force between human feelings both tangible and abstract . Your moon sign is your personality and who you are when you react to something before you have time to think. The moon's meaning and astrology covers a multitude of topics, but they all intertwined beautifully. We covered the moon's role in your personality, how we react to the environment, using our five senses and how the moon represents our primal instincts. Beyond that, the moon also represents our inner psyche. The inner psyche is made up of your memories, including as far back as your childhood or infancy and even your dreams, both waking dreams and nighttime dreams. In the next video, I'll show you how to find your moon sign. 3. Finding Your Moon Sign: your moon sign is based on which signed the moon was in at the date and time of your birth and location to where you were born. It's easy to find on a natal chart, and there are a few sites that offer a natal chart for free. My favorite and the one I'll be showing you How to use today is Astro Dash charts dot com. If you don't know the exact time of your birth, look up the signs that the moon was in on the day of your birth. Read the description of each and see which one fits you better.

But the more you learn about each of the different aspects of it, the more sense it will make for Right now, we're just looking for a little moon shape, which you can see mine in the bottom right quadrant in Airy's. And if you're having difficulty finding it or just want a simpler way, you can scroll down to planets and son is first and then moon is right below it, and there you can see minus Airy's. So next up we will cover how the moon changes signs and what each of the signs entails. 4. The Zodiac Signs: the moon changes Zodiac signs approximately every 2.5 days, which means it cycles through all 12 Zodiac signs in about 28 days. Since the sun stays in one sign for about 30 days, it could be beneficial to work with the moon if you are looking to draw in specific energy sooner that when the sun will be in that sign. So for each of the signs and the moon first there's Aires. Aires is independent, fiery. It's an action taker and passionate. So when the moon is in Aires, this is a time to take action or a tackle, a project that's been waiting in the wings. People with a tourist moon are generally practical and protective of themselves, their romantic, sentimental and warm. When the moon is in tourist, this is a time to indulge the senses and do some radical self care. Gemini moons are curious, their active. They're clever, creative, witty, and this is a time to go out and socialize or connect with others. People with the moon and cancer are emotional, nurturing, protective and sensitive. When the moon is in cancer, this is a time to draw closer to family and friends. Leo's or the Lions are inspired and fun loving and dramatic and enthusiastic. When the moon is in Leo, this is a great time to appreciate ourselves and others. Maybe make a list of everything you love about yourself. Virgos are organized and shy and practical and driven, and they can border on obsessive when the moon is in Virgo. This is a time to focus on the little things that are bringing joy into your life. Libras are all about balance, their diplomatic indulgent, lavish, and this is a time to work on relationships and finding harmony and compromise. Scorpios are transformative, mysterious. They're very intense and very loyal. When the moon is in Scorpio, this is a perfect time to start something new. Sanitary ISS is the Explorer their wild, humorous and spiritually so. If the moon is in sanitary issue, this is a great time to set some long term goals or to go out on an adventure. Capricorns are ambitious and stubborn but stable. This is a time to break down those long term goals that during a sanitary ISS moon and make them more manageable and more achievable. And Aquarius moon is light hearted and forward thinking just a free love type energy. This is a time to assess how were being treated in our relationships, making sure that we are being treated well and with people who are worthy of being with us . Pi ses are dreamy and ebbing and flowing and vulnerable when the moon is imp. Ice is this is a time to recharge our batteries until listen toward our emotions are telling us what happens when the moon is leaving one sign but isn't quite in its next sign yet Find out in the next video. 5. Void of Course Moon: when the moon is leaving his current sign but isn't quite in its new sign, It's called Avoid. Of course, moon. This void usually last from a few seconds up to a few hours, but occasionally it can last longer. During this time, the moon isn't being ruled by any specific sign. And without this influence, we can feel kind of stuck or in a limbo, just unsure of what to do to move forward actions taken during a void. Of course, Moon can have less than stellar results. This can be used to an advantage, though. As we saw during Reagan's presidency, he and his wife, Nancy, worked with an astrologist to determine the best times to hold meetings and press conferences, the press conferences that were held during void. Of course, Moons made it, so he was able to tackle difficult subjects and difficult questions without any big uproar . Some say that the energy during a void, of course, moon is a little wonky and a little unstable, which gives way to undesirable results, and that it's best to do nothing or to rest. During this time. I personally believe that the energy seems wonky because we're so used to an influential energy from the moon, but avoid. Of course, Moon allows the energy from other planets to come through a little bit more clearly and influences in a different way. I'm sure there are many ways that you could apply this to life and to do some experiments, maybe even by looking at the different planets and where they'll be during a void, of course, Moon to see if rituals or intentions set during this time have different results, or if they have a little bit more oomph than they would normally keep a record of what you do during a void. Of course, Moon to see if there any patterns you could learn from journaling is a great way to keep track of what you've learned. And journaling in general is a great way to see how each of the different signs affect you . Learn more in the next section about journaling, along with the signs of the moon 6. Journaling with the Moon: because the moon represents our inner psyche and parts of us that we want to hide some shadow work. Journaling can accelerate growth and personal development in these areas. At the end of the class handbook, you'll find 12 questions to get you started. Each one corresponds with a sign of the Zodiac. So begin with a question for the sign that today's moon is in and work through them every few days. The Class handbook contains 12 questions To get you started, each one corresponds with a sign of the Zodiac. So begin with a question for today's sign and work through them every few days as the moon changes signs. This is a great practice for getting in sync with the moon and to cultivate a habit of journaling because the questions will Fillon entire month or one complete trip through the Zodiac. I tried to leave the questions open, ended enough that they could be modified and used month after month. But feel free to adjust the questions as desired. To participate in the class project color and one of the Zodiac mandalas from your journal and share it with the class. There's no need to share your actual writing on the journal page. Just go ahead and share how you colored in the mandala. I look forward to seeing everyone's artwork, and I want to thank you for joining this class.

My Favorite Free Moon Apps: The first app that I wanted to share with you is simply called the moon, and it shows what phase the moon is in you with the free version you can Onley see a few days into the future at a certain point and will tell me I need to pay for it. So go back to today's date. But up on this top row, right under the date, you can see different symbols, and the one all the way to the left shows what sign the moon is currently in. So if you click on that, it pulls up a calendar and shows which day it's going to be changing signs. This is not 100% accurate down to the hour, but can give you a good general guideline for what day the moon is going to be. In what sign? Another app I find really useful is called time passages, and this one also shows the phase of the moon and on the upper right side. It shows that it's insanitary us right now for astrology purposes. I like time passages more because it shows exactly what time is going to enter the next sign and which void. Of course, Moon is coming up next. So right now there's not one in the very near future. It also gives a little detail of what the moon and sanitary ISS means and what each of the different signs mean. It also gives a little description. Provide, of course. So those are my two favorite APS for tracking where the moon is that, and I hope that was useful for you.
