Do you know your natal moon sign? Did you know that your energy cycles might be heightened when the moon transits your natal moon sign? Most people are familiar with their sun signs, but if you really want to understand yourself at the deepest level, look to your moon sign. Your natal moon sign describes your emotional nature and gives you clues as to what your soul needs to feel most secure and content.
The moon orbits the earth every 29.5 days and during its journey will spend roughly 2.5 days in each sign per cycle. The days in which the moon travels through your Natal Moon Sign are said to be good days for you, emotionally, and therefore peak days of performance.
If you have specific goals in mind for any given month, you can find out when the moon is going to be visiting your moon sign and plan accordingly, keeping in mind that the phase of the moon can add variances to the energetic.
For instance, a new moon in your sign is a time of heightened confidence--excellent for taking on new projects. The full moon in your sign lends a hopeful optimism to anything you are focusing on at this time. The quarter moons in your moon sign illuminate obstacles in your path toward contentment, but your empowered emotional state is ready to tackle the challenge head on. The Balsamic moon can give you keen insight to work around otherwise disappointing issues, and you tend to handle these with such grace. A dark moon in your sign is a great time for deep inner work and self-reflection--a time of mystery, magic and healing.
To find your power moon cycle, you will have to know your natal moon sign. If you don't know it, visit www.astro.com and be prepared to enter your name, date time and location of your birth and it will give you a basic natal chart.
