THE MOON IN ASTROLOGY - Part I
According to Astrology, Moon represents our unconsciousness, our intimate side; also it indicates how we feel and experience our mother, for a man especially, and for a woman, it shows in which way she lives this role. It also expresses the force of our roots.
Moon is an inner and outer force inside Man, the power ruling life rhythm, wake-sleep, day-night, it is connected to hypothalami and to the white glands of our body, which are directly fed by the Moon.
This archetypical being is linked to water, to your watery world inside, world of emotions.
The way you experience and express your emotions depends on the position of the Moon in your natal chart.
If the Moon is in a high sector of your chart (10° house for ex.), you tend to assimilate emotions mentally. In a low sector (4° house), the assimilation arrives through your heart. Moon in 1° house is a personal and subjective way to live emotions. Moon in 7° house is an objective way to do it, because you tend to share somebody else's point of view.
Varying the element where the Moon is placed in your chart, your life philosophy changes:
Moon in Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius), you tend to be idealistic, trying to make this world a better place. The risk is that the dream is too detached from your own power to realize it. The challenge to root yourself in the HERE and NOW.
Moon in Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces), you tend TO BE your emotions, your temper is passionate and you filter life through your heart, but here the risk is to be overwhelmed by your own feelings. The challenge is to build up a path for emotions, in order to let them nourish you and the others around you.
Moon in Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn), you tend to be rational, never overexposed, always coming to terms with what is right and what is wrong, trying to keep everything under control, for fear that the world order may tumble down if you do not keep an eye on it. The risk here is an overdose of stress, while the challenge is to learn to breath freely and to accompany others to understand the world order, because you have it so clear in your mind.
Moon in Fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) you tend to be an avenger, trying to rid the world from the wrong, to establish an order according to your own personal law, which is the only valuable. The risk is to became a tyrant, abandoned by your own siblings that cannot stand the way to impose your personality. The challenge is to indicate what is wrong in the world and to teach the others how to avoid it.
