The Moon is the earth’s only satellite. It always shows the same face to earth and is the second brightest celestial object in the sky (after the Sun). The Moon’s gravitational influence produces the Ocean Tides.
THE MOON IN YOUR BIRTH CHART:
As the Moon rules the ebbing and flowing of the sea, so it rules our ever changing emotions. The Moon influences how we respond and react, our home and hearth, our family and roots, how we feel, our mood swings, our instincts, our needs in order to feel secure, our basic habits, our unconscious and our intuition.
The Moon is a feminine energy and is associated with the mother. Where the Moon resides in our birth chart will describe how we have been nurtured as a child and our relationship with our mother figure. This position will also give insight into our inner child and what we need to feel safe and secure and the area of our life where we feel most ‘at home’. It also indicates how we perceive home, family and roots and how we relat...
The orbit of the Moon crosses the path of the Sun in two places (Northern and Southern hemisphere) and these points are called the Nodes of the Moon.
The North Node (head of the Dragon) is an indicator of our life lessons and challenges representing our Karmic objectives and soul growth and evolution.
The South Node (tail of the Dragon) represents our comfort zone and reflects life challenges we have overcome and Karmic lessons we have learnt in past lives. Therefore our South Node reveals how we are equipped to face the Karmic objectives of our current life.
The placement of the Nodes in our Birth Charts by zodiac sign and house, reveals the nature and area of life in which we need to develop and achieve our soul quest and conquer our Karmic challenges.
Your rising sign or ascendant is the zodiac sign that was rising on the eastern horizon the moment you were born. It is the lens through which you see the world.
The rising sign is specific to the time and place of your individual birth and is considered, in Astrology, to be as important and significant as the Sun and Moon signs because all other aspects of the birth chart are filtered through this sign.
The rising sign is the path we take to our Sun sign.
The Sun is why we are here, the rising /ascendant sign is how we get there.
