The Moon’s Energy & How it’s Affecting Us
Weekly periods run from Friday to Thursday; All times PST
Why follow the moon?
In astrology, the moon rules our feelings, habits and instincts. Knowing what sign and phase the moon is in gives you the chance to harness the moon’s energy to your advantage – to know when the best, most effective time is for taking action, romance, relaxing or when to avoid certain things. Also, if you’re more tuned into the moon’s energy, it gives you a heads up of how the moon will be affecting you on an emotional level.
For those more advanced, you can check what house the moon is transiting in your natal chart to see where in your life you can expect these energetic changes.

What can we expect this week?
December 27th 2019 to January 2nd 2020
The moon will be in a waxing crescent phase from Friday to next Thursday. This is a good time for being creative, visualizing changes you want to bring into your life and doing spells for money and success.
Friday the 27th starts with the moon in Capricorn. This is a good time to be productive, to make sure your responsibilities are getting done, and to be organized. At 9:21pm the moon moves into the sign of Aquarius and will be there until the end of Sunday the 29th.
The moon in Aquarius is the best time to try something new or different, especially if it’s a way of thinking. Since Aquarius is ruled by Uranus, it encourages innovative change to push us out of our comfort zones to help us grow. This is a perfect time to show off your “weird”, unique side if that’s something you are shy about. This is also good timing for making wishes.
Monday at 7:42am the moon moves into the sign of Pisces. Those with significant water in their natal charts will be more sensitive and prone to mood swings during this time. Since Pisces is a water sign, this is a good time to be creative and to trust your intuition if something feels off. If you are into divination, this is a good time to do so. If you’re feeling overemotional then take it easy and don’t push yourself, try to ground yourself and meditate. The moon will be in Pisces until Wednesday evening.
Wednesday at 8pm the moon enters fiery Aries. This energy is fast moving, confident and energetic so make sure you don’t rush into anything and to make sure things are properly in order before moving ahead. It would be beneficial to use this energy in an ambitious and productive way. Also, avoid getting into arguments and if you’re feeling stressed, try to meditate. Careful of being reckless during this time and try to avoid being impulsive. The moon will be in Aries until next Saturday morning.
Moon Void of Course
I won’t get too into detail about this here, but when the moon is in between changing zodiac signs, it goes through a period called “Void of Course”. Things started at this time often get delayed, need adjustment, end up failing, or otherwise just not being stable.
If you’re making any major decisions (e.g. starting a new business, making investments, or even first dates) they should be avoided during this time if possible, as well as planning anything important. Instead, do something such as cleaning, reading, meditating, or so on. If you are going to close a business or end a relationship, this is the time to do so.
Times this week:
Dec. 27th 1:03pm to 9:21pm
Dec. 30th 2:24am to 7:41am
Jan. 1st 6:13pm to 8:00pm
Hope you enjoyed, stay tuned for next week!
