Reflections of your inner world
* Every month the Moon travels through all twelve Zodiac signs. It completes its circuit every 27.3 days staying in each sign just under 2 1/2 days.
* The Moon rules Cancer, one of the emotional, intuitive Water signs.
* Cancer is the Cardinal Water Sign
* The Moon is associated w/ the interests of the 4th house of the horoscope which rules the life areas of home, family, roots, history, private life and living arrangements.
The houses of the horoscope are a way of dividing the Zodiac into the various essential areas of life.
* The Moon's position in your horoscope, by sign and house shows what you need to feel emotionally supported and secure. It shows how you behave when you feel safe in the company of trusted family and friends. It represents the Inner Self that runs on emotions and feelings.
One of your strongest feminine energies
* The Moon in your horoscope deals with nourishment and parenting. It gives information on how you feed yourself, literally and emotionally and how you deal with your responsibilities for those in your care -- how you "mother" your children and the important people in your life.
* Along with the Sun, the Moon is considered one of the Luminaries, the light-givers. One shines by day, the other by night. The planets in the night sky, while they may appear to twinkle like stars, they don't actually shine or give off their own light. Neither does the Moon, for that matter. It reflects the light of the Sun and only appears to shine a light of its own.
* In the physical body, the Moon rules the breasts, breastbone, stomach, digestive system, lower ribs, womb and pancreas.
* The Moon represents basically feminine energy -- responsive, introverted, receptive yin energy. Even in bold and masculine signs it retains this basic feminine essence. The other strongly feminine elements in your horoscope are Venus and Neptune.
