The Sun and Moon: Astrology’s “Heavenly Bodies”

Sun and Moon my Jess Starwood

Astrologically speaking, most people know their Sun signs. You’ll hear people say “I’m a Leo” or “I’m a water sign (referring to Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces Sun signs),” or “I was born on the Virgo/Libra cusp.”

And many believe that that’s all there is to it. Nothing could be further from the truth!

The Moon sign is not only just as important as the Sun sign, sometimes it’s even more important.

Eastern astrologers, for example, are more interested in Moon signs than Sun signs, and in many areas almost everyone knows their own Moon sign from an early age.

MOON IN ARIES  

6/29/2013 1:06 pm DISSEMINATING phase and 7/26/2013 5:30 pm DISSEMINATING phase

With the moon now in Aries its time for action! You may feel like acting on your impulses without hesitation (in other words without thinking twice!)… you may wish to think on that for its own sake if nothing else. There is an added emphasis right now for going after what you want whether that be work, romance, a new image, etc. Try to keep things in perspective though and use this time to surge ahead with a good plan as opposed to rushing in without thinking things through.

April and May 2013 Solar and Lunar Eclipses from an Astrological Perspective

Starting on April 25 and going through to May 25 we have 3 eclipses due to cross our paths affecting some of us more than others but giving all of us a chance to use the heightened energy of the Sun and Moon that is around at these times.

However you choose to use these important dates keep this in mind. Eclipses tend to have a way of throwing you off your guard, situations may happen that send you reeling and circumstances whether good or bad have a way of showing up in your life in a way that reminds you of fated or coincidental events.

Thanksgiving Solar Eclipse: Nov 25, 2011

Solar Eclipse

They say that a “change is as good as holiday” and it may be wise to meditate on these words this Thanksgiving given that there is an eclipse on the new moon in Sagittarius.  Sagittarius is usually a sign known for its humor and ability to have fun, however, an eclipse is usually anything other than a lot of fun!

Whilst it is true it will affect some of your more than others you can never be sure it will not affect you directly… or indirectly through others.  For example, you may not have many planets which are affected but your partner may and therefore you will be affected as their own issues hit off and you are then left dealing with what you are going to do next.  Sound familiar?
