Using Moon Sign Energy in Your Daily Life
By Rebecca Brents
an interesting bit of Astrological wisdom that if you schedule your
daily activities while keeping in mind the Moon's position in the sky
that day, you'll give yourself a little cosmic edge in getting through
your To-Do list faster, better and more successfully -- especially on
the days when the Moon changes signs. As always, you'll need to avoid
starting anything important when the Moon is void of course, but going
with the flow of celestial currents in the daily tasks and chores you
have to get done as a regular part of life brings that extra boost of
help we all can use -- with a sigh of relief ... And thanks.
get yourself an astrological calendar. (My hands-down favorite is Jim
Maynard's "Pocket Astrologer.") And keep track of the Moon's
position in the signs as it travels through the Zodiac each month. It
creates a rhythm that is efficient, natural and often oh-so-welcome --
especially when you face a myriad of options and are wondering what on
earth to do next. The suggestions of the
Moon-sign-energy-of-the-moment can help you make a choice.
Cardinal Signs are Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Cardinal Sign
energy is focused, intense, dynamic and self-propelling. It gets things
going and keeps them moving -- even if it has to get a little pushy in
the process. Use this energy for starting new projects, beginning new
ventures and making progress.
Aries energy is good for launching
things that are important to you personally, where your initiative and
direction are essential to your eventual success. Cancer energy is good
for dealing with family matters and doing things around your home, such
as cleaning, decorating, making repairs or doing maintenance chores.
Libra energy is good for dealing with relationship issues, teamwork
efforts, matters that require negotiation and diplomacy and activities
where you have to take other people into account. Capricorn energy is
good for starting professional ventures, dealing with "authority
figures" and generally "taking care of business."
Signs are Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. Fixed Sign energy is
relatively calm, steady, laid-back and durable. It sets a
slower-than-normal pace and encourages you to fortify,
stabilize and nourish what you have already started -- or what you
already have. It supports work-in-progress .. And gives you a little
extra breathing room to concentrate and center yourself.
energy is good for dealing with financial matters -- such as paying
bills, things that support you and your lifestyle, activities that
involve "nourishment" -- such as cooking, meal planning, grocery
shopping, and activities that calm and soothe ... Like gardening,
planning, resting and taking care of yourself. Leo energy is good for
self-promotion ... And having fun. It supports hobbies, leisure
activities, creativity, romance ... And time spent with your children
and brain-children. Scorpio energy is good for clearing out life's
clutter and "deadwood," making refinements and improvements, dealing
with jointly held property and assets, and making passionate love!!
Aquarius energy is good for taking risks, doing something unusual,
pursuing ventures that require ingenuity or a novel approach, showing
your independence and breaking out of your rut.
Signs are Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Mutable Sign energy is
versatile, changeable, flexible and responsive. It supports activities
where there are a lot of little things to consider, where diversity is
an integral feature and where multi-tasking -- or at least the ability
to tend to a changing variety of tasks -- is important.
energy is good for tasks that require mobility, cleverness,
communication and resourcefulness -- like running errands,
data-gathering, letter-writing and list-making. Virgo energy is good
for projects that require careful attention to details, that help you
live more efficiently, that deal with health care ... And "tying up
loose ends." Sagittarius energy is good for activities that involve
teaching, learning, travel and education -- experiences that ask you to
stretch your mind and widen your intellectual horizons. Pisces energy
supports projects that involve creative inspiration, artistic
expression, charitable impulses, spiritual information, therapy,
physical or psychological healing ... And serious "rest and
If you're lucky enough to have days -- or a life
-- where you can call your time your own, setting your course with the
Moon's invitations in mind can help you find a wonderful sense of
"rightness" in your world ... And that feeling, believe me, is a
blessing all its own!
