Good news! Master astrologer Donna Cunningham, author of 17 books, has written an excellent analysis of Why Transits to the Birth Moon Are So Challenging.
You may wish to check out Donna’s insights on the subject (especially if you know your natal Moon’s position by sign, degree, and house) and if you are having contacts to moody Luna by heavy weight planets such as Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and/or Pluto. Or, if you’re the curious type.
As you know, the astrological Moon represents our emotions, feelings about our emotions, the past, and ‘she’ greatly influences our physical bodies as described by the mind-body connection.
Noel Tyl says our natal Moon describes our ‘reigning needs’ so right away we can see how a significant visit from life-altering planets such as those mentioned above can indicate important passages in our lives as our Unconscious minds receive timely messages from the Universe – directly to little ole us.
Actually, ‘passages’ is a quite a lunar term, isn’t it? That could be the basic message, in fact: it’s time for a passage!
“Life is change,” as ‘they’ are fond of reminding us. Have you noticed how this bromide usually issues from those whose lives are stable and settled?
Or so they assume, for their times of passage will come as well!
Plus, during these transit periods, issues from childhood may resurface in hopes that we are ready to deal with the subsequent emotions that may be dragging us down as adults and preventing progress. Old emotional disappointments and wounds can interfere with current goals, as I can personally attest. Our Moons relate to the Inner or Divine Child; Sun is the adult personality. The blending of the two is mentioned often by your reluctant astrologer (moi) because it is their integration – conscious with unconscious – that make up a whole psyche (it is to be hoped!)
And of course, we look to the house (department of life) where natal Moon resides to see what areas of our lives will be most affected by the transit; the house/s of the natal chart with Moon-ruled Cancer on the cusp/s will be pulled into the Moon’s gravity field as well when natal Moon is being stimulated.
Our daily mundane round is also signified by the astrological natal Moon, so do catch up with Ms. Cunningham as soon as you may, for the quickly fluctuating Moon changes signs about every 2 1/2 days, as you know…so why dost thou tarry?
