Moon-tracking is one of the most brilliant and easy ways to use astrology – to do it, you need just a Moon Diary for your timezone OR to subscribe to my Daily Horoscopes, as they have the Void Moon and the Moon Ingress (when the Moon gets into each sign) times for L.A, New York, London and Sydney timezones.
All you do is in your phone or a little notebook, keep track of how you feel during each different moon sign of the month. Note mood, motivation levels, cravings, inspirations and so on. Thus you figure out how the different moon phases affect YOU and can then take this into account when planning. Obviously, in general, the Moon in Virgo & Capricorn (the Moon is in Capricorn today) are fantastic for work & clarity, the Moon in Aries favors a gung-ho guts and glory approach to life whereas the Libra Moon is more diplomatic.
But track how the 12 different Moon signs of the month affect YOU and you will find the key to some awesome astro planning, being able to mitigate against the Moons that tend to stir ye olde schizz or aggravate temper and max out the Moons where you’re in the Awesome. It’s a beautiful, basic bit of cosmic awareness.
You won’t end up getting the shits at yoga because you really want to be at home nailing the schizz out of your numbers and data flow. Or trying to pull a massive shift when the Moon is cooing at you to go to the movies or take a chance dating again.
Knowing where the Moon is empowers our Yin forces, the ones that help us be productively serene and at peace with ourselves.
