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.
Sun sign astrology (horoscopes) became popular because the Sun’s zodiacal position is the only one that can be determined by birth date alone. The Sun occupies the same relative position in the zodiac on the same day every year. That makes it easy for laypeople to know their own Sun signs, without having to consult an astrologer or navigate the complicated waters of in-depth astrology.
Even though the Sun is over 400 times the size of the Moon (another reason some place more importance on it), it’s also over 400 times further away. This is why they appear to be relatively the same size from our vantage point. It’s also why we have Solar and Lunar eclipses.

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.

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.

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?
