MONTHLY MOON ACTIVITIES

 

In these days of moving forward, getting ahead, taking action, kicking goals and monitoring progress, we often forget that we are instinctual creatures driven by our feelings and inner world. If you’d like to create a more rewarding, emotionally-balanced and stress-free life, try living in tune with the moon. 

The moon changes sign every 2-3 days.  Check  the table below to find out the best 'lunar' activities for any given day of the month.  For example when the moon is in Virgo, cleaning out the kitchen cupboards or going for a massage will always make you feel good, whereas if the moon is in Aries you’d be better off getting hot and sweaty, playing sport or chopping wood. This advice applies to both men and women and to all star signs.

Another way of living in tune with the moon is to check when the Moon will be passing through your individual star sign this month (e.g. Cancer, Capricorn).  You should feel particularly 'in tune' on these days and activities will proceed smoothly for you. 

And  if you know which sign the Moon was in when you were born, note the 2-3 days each month when the Moon will be in that sign. This is your 'lunar return' and the natural energies of this period will resonate with your own personal energy.  For example, if you were born with the Moon in Libra, you should experience feelings of harmony, balance and creativity when the transiting Moon is in Libra. 

Serious moon watchers might like to purchase a Moon Calendar which will show the exact time of day when the moon moves from one zodiac sign to the next and help you organise your life using moon cycles and lunar planning to achieve optimum emotional and physical balance.
