Major Aspects of the Moon

The Moon in its travels

The Moon, in its travels around the earth, cycles through all twelve signs of the Zodiac every twenty-eight to thirty days. It changes signs about every two and a half days.

In each new sign, the Moon forms angles with the other planets in the sky, angles which are occasionally quite significant (called major aspects) and which mark the ebb and flow of both easy and irritating moments in everyday life.

Major aspects of the Moon include:

Conjunctions -- when the Moon is in the same sign and degree with another planet in the sky.

Conjunctions show moments of intense emotion and focus, depending on the other planet involved.

Sextiles -- when the Moon is approximately 60° on either side of another planet in the sky, either approaching conjunction or departing from it.

Sextiles show moments of opportunity and insight, when the energy of both the Moon and the other planet can be put to good use.

Squares -- when the Moon is approximately 90° on either side of another planet in the sky, either approaching conjunction or departing from it. Squares show moments of aggravation, hindrance and working at cross-purposes.

Squares to the Moon show times when your emotions and desires compete with or have to accommodate the demands of the other planet and its energy.

Squares represent feelings (and times) when different areas of your life, or different parts of you, both want your full attention -- and you have to accommodate them.

Trines -- when the Moon is approximately 120° on either side of another planet in the sky, either approaching conjunction or departing from it. Trines show moments of easy flow, stress-free living, "being in the right place at the right time," "things just falling into place."

Trines to the Moon show times when your instincts and "feelings" are right on target, when you know what to do and can follow your impulses, when life opens up to your desires and abilities ... and the path ahead is straight and level.

During trines to the Moon, benefits are effortless and life is really sweet. Your feelings work "hand in hand" with the other planet to create good results for both.

Oppositions -- when the Moon is 180° away from another planet in the sky, directly across the horoscope circle in what, even visually, looks like a confrontation.

Oppositions, indeed, show times of conflict, competing interests, antagonism, blockage and the need to balance two strongly adversarial (perhaps mutually exclusive) interests.

Oppositions show friction between you and someone else ... often described by the planet opposing the Moon. Oppositions can also show two deeply ambivalent elements of your own character in conflict with one another, but still, some compromise, truce or balancing act where you take other people, different things, or competing components of your own personality into account must be arranged.

The Moon in General -- Your Inner Self of Feelings, Emotions and Intuition ---> Welcome to your inner world -- In Astrology, The Moon represents our inner feelings, our emotions ... and our deep security needs. It reflects our basic habits, instincts and automatic reactions. It speaks to some elements of our Karma and childhood home, our upbringing, family background and specifically our relationship with our mother (or major mother figure from the past.)

The New Moon -- A Milestone Celestial Event ---> When The Moon joins The Sun in the sky -- In astrology, the celestial phenomenon known as the New Moon occurs at the exact moment the Sun and the Moon occupy precisely the same point in the sky-map of the Zodiac -- the same degree and minute of arc in a particular sign. This alignment is known as a conjunction.

A Day with No Lunar Aspects -- Not quite one thing ... not quite another ---> First things first -- To understand this article, you may need a little bit of background. First of all ... do you know about the Void-of-Course Moon? If so, great. Skip down and read on. If not, take a minute or two (honest, that's all you'll need) to read about it.

Shadows in the Moonlight -- The Full Moon and its Testy Temper ---> The Sun Opposing The Moon -- Who you are now vs. who you used to be -- The aspect of the Sun opposing the Moon is the classic celestial show the rest of the world calls The Full Moo. In Astrology, The Full Moon highlights tension between two conflicting desires, ambitions, requirements, or sets of values -- each a necessary part of life, and each somehow a problem for the other.

The Void-of-Course Moon -- Quick Notes that Save Lots of Time ---> Don't start anything important!! -- When the Moon is void-of-course in any sign, it marks a pause in Life's rhythm. Moon-void-of-course periods are a time to coast, get some extra rest, take life easy and be gentle with yourself.Don't start or schedule anything important. Just wait for life to regain its rhythm and start moving forward again.

The Straight Truth About the Void-of-Course Moon ---> Losing momentum -- As long as the Moon can form new major aspects with other planets in the sky from the sign it occupies, life flows. But when the Moon has formed its last major angle with the current planets in the sky and moved on -- meaning it now occupies a numerically higher degree position in the sign it occupies than any other planet in the sky, the Moon is considered void-of-course until it enters the next astrological sign.

Let's Talk About This Thing Called the Void-of-Course Moon -- When You Wind Up Chasing Your Own Tail ---> When you just can't get it together -- Has the start of this year felt unusually sluggish and unfocused to you? It certainly has to me. I don't mean it's lacked effort and pressure. You may have plenty of that. But there's also been a "thick" feeling you've had to struggle against, as if you can't get organized, can't concentrate, can't really "get your act together."

Why the Void-of-Course Moon is a Problem -- When you don't know what you don't know ---> When nothing happens -- The energy spent while the Moon is void-of-course is wasted, meaningless, unproductive, off-kilter, out of synch, misdirected, and somehow wrong. (Sometimes the best result is "nothing happens." Sometimes you wind up in a terrible mess and have to start over ... because nothing happens. Sometimes that result is a virtual nightmare!!)

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
The energy to accomplish things you feel passionately about arrives in great abundance, along with the patience and eye for detail you need to get all the piddling little details mopped up. This energy smartly deals with all the everyday practical chores, errands, tasks, and responsibilities that take plenty of time and effort but aren't much fun -- the "housekeeping routines" that are part of everyone's life.

If you're able to use its power, you can clear the decks of all those niggling little jobs that need doing -- but don't really "accomplish much" except to clear out your Inbox, clean off your desk, take out the trash, and put the house in apple pie order, so more "stuff" can arrive tomorrow. But at least you'll have a place to put all the new piles.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Libra Conjunct Venus in Libra on Tue 17th of Oct 2017 at 7:57 pm MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Thu 19th of Oct 2017 at 1:12 pm MDT until it enters Scorpio on Thu 19th of Oct 2017 at 7:41 pm MDT
