Posts Tagged ‘The 12 houses’

Did you know that you can use your Moon sign to be more emotionally intelligent and get the most out of each month? By paying attention to the movements of the Moon as it trails across all sections of your chart within the lunar month (about 27.5 days give or take a few hours…) It will touch on key points, planets, trigger aspects and make its presence known in each house, showing you which parts of your life are going to be the focus for the 2 and a bit days that the moon spends in a house or sign. I like to use the houses because I think this is more accurate than just using the signs.

So, the first place to start is to look at your birth chart. Where is your Moon in the chart? The 1st house? The 5th? This is the house where you will always feel the most powerful effect of the Moon and the most emotionally comfortable.  Then by using your chosen Astrology software take a look at the transits to your birth chart on any particular day in the coming month. You will be able to see the Moon moving through a particlar house and it will be the matters governed by this house that will be front and centre on the date selected. Make sense?

Ok, let’s look at the matters ruled by each of the houses and then you can take a closer look at your Moon’s movements through the chart. This is just shorthand meanings for more in depth explanations of the houses and their meanings, try the articles section of www.astro.com.

1st house = your identity, your social mask, your appearance

2nd house = what you give the most value to, your personal possessions/skills and your attitude to money

3rd house = how you comunicate, your relationship with siblings, short journeys and your intellectual outlook

4th house = what is home, your sense of family, the most influential parent (Mother or Father) and your emotional well being

5th house = what are you attracted to, where and how do you find pleasure, hobbies and interests, creative projects and children

6th house = your daily routine, your work ethic and attitude to serving others, your health

7th house = your most important partnerships (lovers, wives/husbands, business partners), how you relate to others, what you find the most meaningful qualities from others

8th house = your sexuality, your attitude to taboos, death and underworld topics, how you approach other people’s money

9th house = how you learn, your philsophy on life, society and its laws, how you acquire new skills, new cultures and all things foreign

10th house = your public life, your reputation, your career and the lesser influential parent (Mother or Father)

11th house = your humanity, you in group activities, your friends, your idealism about how the world should be

12th house = your dreams, your unconscious motivations, your attitude to making sacrifices, your self-sabotaging behaviours  

Each day the Moon will be in one of these houses and you should be able to follow it’s movements so you can feel how your focus changes ever few days so that new matters are emphasised around you. But, as with everything to do with the Moon in your chart, you are more likely to feel this energy rather than experience it coming from others so pay attention to your inner emotional landscape to see if you can notice when it shifts.

I’ll be back soon to take more about how you can plan your month to the best advantage using only the Moon’s  monthly transits.
