The Transiting Moon

In this video we’ll be talking about the best things to focus on when the moon transits through each of the 12 signs and each of your 12 houses. It makes a full revolution every 29.5 days so it will spend about 2-2.5 days in each sign and the same amount in each of your houses.

Introduction to Modalities

In addition to corresponding to an element, each of the Zodiac signs also corresponds to a modality. The Cardinal signs begin each new season, the Fixed signs represent their heart, and the Mutable signs give way to the ending before a new season begins. Each element contains one sign from each modality. The astrological wheel (in Tropical Western astrology used in the Northern Hemisphere) starts off with the Spring Equinox in March and ends with Pisces in mid-March as the cycle reaches completion before beginning again with a new burst of fire. That fiery, passionate beginning is brought on by […]
