The Moon is the fastest moving ‘planet’ in astrology, taking just 28 days to travel through the whole zodiac before starting over once more. We call the Moon’s monthly journey Moon transits or lunar transits in astrology, and during each monthly cycle the Moon will transit each zodiac sign for roughly two and a half days.
In astrology, the Moon represents our feelings, emotions, subconscious responses and psychic abilities. When the Moon transits each zodiac sign in turn, these energies are channeled through the different astrological signs to create subtly different moods, each of which is then reflected in the overall vibe of each day.
If you pay attention, perhaps through a Moon journal, you’ll soon start to notice that, for example, an Aquarius Moon transit feels very different to a Taurus Moon transit.
Born With the Moon in Aquarius?
If you were born when the Moon was in Aquarius, then you have a natal Aquarius Moon in your birth chart. In this case, the Aquarius Moon brings a certain emotional aloofness to you character, but it does also make you highly inventive and often ahead of your time.
The Transiting Moon in Aquarius
When the Moon transits Aquarius, emotional issues are often brushed aside in favor of the intellectual or the abstract. This can be a good thing or a not so good thing, depending on who you are and what circumstances you’re living through. Certainly, the focus on logic cools the emotional temperature, which can be helpful in hectic or overwhelming times. However, during an Aquarius Moon it’s difficult to get to grips with emotional problems, so we tend to try to ignore them – and that leaves them to fester, which is rarely helpful.
On the plus side, the energy of the Aquarius Moon is gregarious, good-hearted and friendly. Aquarius is a highly idealistic air sign and seeks futuristic and idealistic solutions to mankind’s problems. In this sense, the Aquarius Moon can be a visionary Moon, helping to drive forwards progress, especially environmental and technological progress.
This progress may come at a personal cost, however, and the emotional aloofness of the Aquarius Moon can be difficult for many people to handle. Couple that with the fact that the Aquarius Moon demands freedom and independence, and you can see why this lunar has a bad reputation when it comes to romance.
Astrology shows that when the Moon is in Aquarius, it might be a good idea to:
- Be an early adopter of new tech
- Donate your skills (not your money) to a charitable cause
- Go hiking, sky diving or exploring in nature
- Clean up the planet in some small way
- Spend time socializing online
- Invent, innovate and think outside the box
- Tackle an emotional problem without the emotional drama
- Assert your uniqueness in your look or your image
