The Moon In The Signs


Although many people may be aware of the connection between the Sun and the zodiac -our birth sign - many people will be less familiar with the connection between the moon and the zodiac. We are actually born with two different signs - our sun sign and our moon sign. These depend on where both the sun and the moon was in the sky during your time of birth.

As we know, the sun moves into a different zodiac sign every 30 days, but it only takes the moon 2 and a half days to move into a new sign. That's why it's essential to give your time of birth when performing a moon sign chart, otherwise you may not get an accurate answer.

As I've mentioned in previous posts, each moon phase gives out different energies but depending on which sign the moon is in at that given time, those energies will be amplified. You should always make note of the current moon sign in order to take full advantage of the moon's power.

If you want to know and take advantage of the different energies of the moon, you've come to the right place.
