Every month The Moon travels through the entire circle of the Zodiac, spending time in all twelve signs. It makes this circle 13 times a year, and so spends about 2 1/2 days in each successive sign.
As The Moon changes from one sign to the next, the prevailing mood changes. So does the general perspective. Some signs work better with your Natal Moon and other planets than others -- and sometimes the quality of the day depends on what else is happening in the sky.
When the day's Moon is in Sagittarius ...
With today's Moon in Sagittarius, the emotional climate is optimistic and cheerful. You are open to new interests, new information ... and learning experiences in general.
Events of the next few days may widen your intellectual horizons and prove unusually educational. An open mind and the willingness to tolerate -- even embrace -- "foreign ideas" could lift your perspectives to a whole new level. Seeing yourself and your situation from The Big Picture view could introduce plans and opportunities you might not have noticed any other way.
So, what does this progressive combination of Lunar energy and expansive Sagittarius attitudes mean if you find it in a Natal Chart ... if you were born with a Natal Moon in Sagittarius?

Is your Natal Moon in Sagittarius?
Natives born with a Sagittarius Moon are among the most freedom-loving souls in the Zodiac. They have an obvious restlessness in their character. They need a lot of room to roam -- physically and intellectually.
They like to travel and experiences new places geographically. They absolutely need to travel in their minds and imagination. Learning, reading, writing, talking and using other channels of both teaching and self-education are life-long passions.
