Lunar Intensity: Ride the Emotional Wave

“I have the choice of being constantly active and happy, or introspectively passive and sad. Or I can go mad by ricocheting in between.”

"If the moon smiled, she would resemble you. You leave the same impression of something beautiful but annihilating."

--Sylvia Plath

This week we are coming down from November’s stormy month of eclipse madness. Last week’s full Moon lunar eclipse continues to leave aftershocks in its wake. This is a good time to give proper reverence to the power of the Moon and how powerful its cycles are in pulling us up or down into the entire moody spectrum.

There is a reason that the term “lunacy” is derived from “luna”. There is no question that our crazy comes out when the Moon is unhappy, too full or in battle with other planets. The Moon in our horoscope reflects our mind, moods and our emotional pulse. How an experience feels on any given day is colored by the Moon’s energy. Not only does the Moon change signs every few days but -- because it is the fastest moving luminary -- it is constantly in aspect to the other planets.

This week begins with the Moon in challenging angle to Saturn, which creates friction, tension and possible oppression. But then a few hours later, the Moon dances with lucky and optimistic Jupiter, which could totally shift our mood and perspective. This is why it’s excellent to get a lunar calendar to track the emotional waves of the Moon.

On Monday, the Moon is in fiery and generously loving Leo. Then, midweek we move into a more practical a groove when the Moon transits through Virgo. And finally, the Moon ends the week in Libra, highlighting partnership and harmony. Just as women often use the Moon to track their menstrual cycle, you can use the Moon to track your mood cycle. This might explain why men are often accused of having PMS too. Regardless of gender, we are all swayed by the powerful magnetic force of La Luna.
