In astrology, the Moon is your home or comfort zone. And moving house evokes Moon energy. In amid the multiple tasks of shifting house, nurture your Moon.
Standing by the front door, she turned for one last look, aware that she would never be coming back. The thought made the apartment appear unbelievably shabby, like a prison that only locked from the inside, bereft of any picture or vase. The only thing left was the bargain-sale rubber planet on the balcony, which she had bought instead of goldfish.
