The astrological Moon takes 28 days to travel through the zodiac, so it spends approximately two and a half days in each zodiac sign each lunar month.
In astrology, we call this the transiting Moon, as in ‘the Moon is transiting Aries today’. As the Moon moves through each zodiac sign, the Moon’s core energies – emotion, intuition, instincts, reflectiveness and subconscious – are channeled through the energies of each sign. This means that each of the transit Moons has a slightly different feel to it.
Born with the Moon in Aries?
If you were born with the Moon in Aries then you have a natal Aries Moon. This contributes enthusiasm, impulsiveness and emotional directness to your character, but it does also make you rather impatient and prone to outbursts of temper.
The Transiting Moon in Aries
The overall flavor of the transiting Aries Moon is energetic and forthright. When the Moon is in Aries, our days are active, and we are quick to respond to any given situation. The Aries Moon is a warrior Moon, in as much as it brings us courage and bravery and encourages us to defend ourselves and others. However, the Aries Moon also brings temper – and because everything is speeded up under this Moon transit, it’s often difficult to get the full picture. Jumping to conclusions is a problem during an Aries Moon transit, so it’s important to avoid rushing in until you have the full facts.
Aries is a fire sign, a cardinal sign and the first sign of the zodiac to boot, so the Aries Moon is always a good time for initiating something new. These energies are also competitive and driven, favoring short bursts of energy rather than long drawn out projects.
When the Moon is in Aries, you might want to, for instance:
- Stand up for yourself or others
- Enter a competition or contest
- Start a new project
- Move out of your comfort zone
- Pursue a hot new date
- Take up a martial art
- Take charge in a group
- Try out new technology or gadgets
Your Moon in Aries Horoscope
Aries Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Aries dates: March 20 – April 19)
During this couple of days, the Moon will be in your own sign, so you should feel emotionally ‘at home’, relatively calm, and in control – exactly where you like to be! There will be a temptation to do things even more impulsively than normal however, especially when it comes to changing your image or making yourself known. Take great care when driving or playing sports, as impatience or carelessness could lead to injury.
Taurus Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Taurus dates: April 20 – May 20)
You’ll feel uncomfortably rushed when the Moon is in Aries, and unable to take things at your normal step by step pace. Fight back against this feeling by finding extra time for meditation or prayer. Getting enough sleep is important too. During these few days, the Moon will affect your secrets and spirituality zone, so you might have some sudden changes of mind over those issues.
Gemini Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Gemini dates: May 21 – June 20)
Your normally easy-going nature may become impatient and hot-headed during an Aries Moon, especially in social interactions. It’s a good time for meeting new friends, as your confidence is high, but you may also alienate people by being too ‘in your face’. It is a good few days, however, for working on long term plans and strategies, as your motivation levels are high, and your self-belief is strong.
Cancer Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Cancer dates: June 21 – July 21)
You’re likely to take on a slightly reckless edge during an Aries Moon. This could surface in any area of life, but most likely in your career and working life. You’ll be keen to get on with something instead of thinking it through properly. These few days are good for increasing your self-confidence, especially at work, but making sudden, dramatic changes could leave you with regrets later down the line.
Leo Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Leo dates: July 22 – August 22)
The Aries Moon is exciting, invigorating energy for you, and it urges you to step beyond your comfort zone. This is a great few days for trying something new, or for saying yes to something which scares you. The fire energy of the Aries Moon is a good fit with your own fire sign, so this can be a highly creative and energetic time too – and a very passionate interlude.
Virgo Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Virgo dates: August 23 – September 22)
The Aries Moon is your chance to move ahead swiftly with any project which has become bogged down in over-analysis. You can afford to take a few risks under this kind of energy, and it can definitely help you get out of a rut. In love, the Aries Moon brings a huge amount of passion to your life, but also a sense of danger or edginess. This is the time when you’re most likely to act on impulse.
Libra Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Libra dates: September 23 – October 22)
The Aries Moon transits your love zone, so this is typically a romantic and/or passionate few days for you. However, the fire of the Aries Moon is at odds with your gentler, calmer, more diplomatic approach to life, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself saying and doing things you wouldn’t normally do. Tact goes out of the window, but forthright communication may do you the world of good.
Scorpio Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Scorpio dates: October 23 – November 21)
During an Aries Moon, you’ll be motivated to get stuff done, whether that’s at work, at home or in your personal life. Projects and tasks which have sat about for a while can be completed now, even if not perfectly – you’ll just be glad to get them off your to-do list. Restlessness can be an issue during this Moon transit though, so try to get plenty of physical exercise to tire you out.
Sagittarius Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Sagittarius dates: November 22 – December 20)
When the Moon transits your fellow fire sign Aries, your creativity soars. This is usually a very energizing few days for you and you’ll want to stay busy. It’s a fantastic time for dating as you’re in a fun, happy go-lucky mood and not taking life too seriously. Watch out for impulsive risk-taking, however. Always an issue for you, this is likely to be even more the case under an Aries Moon.
Capricorn Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Capricorn dates: December 21 – January 19)
When the Moon is in Aries, you’ll feel more inclined to take risks and to act spontaneously, especially in your family and domestic life. It’s time to ditch the routine and to have a little fun.

Aquarius Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Aquarius dates: January 20 – February 17)
When the Moon transits Aries, you may feel emotionally on edge and prone to a shorter temper than normal. However, you’ll also have a lot going on in terms of ideas, projects and activities, so this is a good few days for creating something new or giving birth to new concepts. You can expect to feel unusually competitive and adversarial, and the need to win is definitely highlighted.
Pisces Horoscope During an Aries Moon (Pisces dates: February 18 – March 19)
Take care with your money when the Moon is in Aries, because you’ll be inclined to emotionally over-spend or to take undue risks that you can’t really afford. On a more positive note, this fire energy does wonders for your self-confidence and it also helps to dispel vague fears or worries. In fact, you’ll enjoy a challenge and will be willing to take on tasks you’d normally avoid.
