Moon Transits

Transiting Moon

Moon transits only last for a few hours at most. The moon affects our emotions, and the effects are strongest during a full or new moon.  Because the moons transits are so fleeting, they aren’t as powerful as outer planet transits, however, they are very good for timing of important events.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Sun

This transit can be thought of as a personal New Moon. It is a good time for new beginnings. Your vitality and personal impact on others is higher now. You experience inner harmony now which is likely to draw attention to yourself without trying or to receive some special recognition. Relations with others flow smoothly.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Sun

Positive feelings and high self-confidence make this a good time to go out, meet with people, or get some recognition and support for creative projects. However, there can be a lack of harmony between your personal and professional life, or there may be conflict between your instincts and what you feel you should do.

Transiting Moon square Natal Sun

This transit can indicate conflict between what you want and what you need. You may be motivated to work at resolving any ongoing problems you may be dealing with, but you’re apt to be rather irritable and edgy now also due to the lack of inner harmony. You can’t seem to ignore problems or just let them pass. Family relations are rather tense.

Transiting Moon trine Natal Sun

Positive feelings and inner harmony engender smooth and comfortable relations with others at this time. Your intuition or gut feelings are apt to be right on the mark.

Social relationships, friendships, and supportive alliances are strengthened now. Your energy and confidence are high and you can accomplish much in a harmonious, flowing manner right now.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Sun

A minor emotional disequilibrium or feeling of being off-center is apt to disrupt your day. You are in a bit of a funk which, fortunately, is apt to be short-lived. However, major decisions or appointments are best postponed until you are feeling more balanced.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Moon

Your moods, feelings, and instincts rule you and you’re apt to act out of emotion or habit rather than reason or conscious choice. You seek the known, comfortable, and familiar, and you’re disinclined to confront new people or situations. It may be uncomfortable for you to be away from your home at this time.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Moon

Buried or neglected emotions come to the surface. Memories and concerns from the past arise. Interactions with parents, children, or significant others in your life trigger strong emotions now.

You’re more moody, oversensitive, or touchy than usual, and your irritability is apt to provoke discord in your immediate environment. Relations with parents, children, or other close associates are tense.

Sympathetic and mutually supportive contacts can be established easily now. You experience feelings of well being, contentment, and emotional harmony both within yourself and with those in your immediate environment.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Moon

Emotionally (and possibly physically as well) you are apt to feel out of sorts, congested, or stuffy. Unbidden emotions or childish behavior surface now also, perhaps as just a passing mood or in response to others. You are affected more than usual by subjective influences, the emotional tone of your surroundings, the feeling of the place you are in. It is a good time to make adjustments or refinements in your home.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Mercury

Communication along personal lines, such as corresponding with a friend or telephoning a relative, are favored. Memories, thoughts of the past, or even fragments of dreams come into your mind.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Mercury

This is a good time to phone friends or family, write personal letters, or record any thoughts or feelings that you have. Emotions and personal biases are apt to cloud your objectivity, however, so you may wish to postpone activities that require strict logic and clarity.

Transiting Moon square Natal Mercury

Errors in judgment, due to personal prejudices or emotion, are apt to occur. Your mood very much colors your thinking right now. You can have fruitful discussions with your close friends or family members, however.

Memories, thoughts, and conversations about the past and personal, intimate discussions are featured. This is a good time to reach out to family members and get (or keep) a flow of communication going.

Transiting Moon sextile Natal Mercury

Communicating with neighbors, friends, and family is accentuated. This is a good time to establish friendly relations at work also. Gossip and trivial conversation are temptations now.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Mercury

Subjective influences, subtle prejudices, or personal biases color your thoughts and decisions more than you realize right now. Interactions with children or family members can be a bit frustrating, as if you are repeating the “same old words” and not really getting anywhere. On the other hand, things you may have felt for some time but have not voiced may pop out of you unexpectedly, creating some minor tension or embarrassment.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Venus

You feel love, affection, harmony with others, and a need for beauty in your surroundings. Doing something to add to the attractiveness of your environment or appearance will make you happy.

Social and personal relationships are smooth and harmonious, especially if you show the affection and tenderness you are feeling now.

Transiting Moon square Natal Venus

Right now you feel a need for sweetness – perhaps in the form of emotional and physical affection, or even of food. You are apt to be pleasantly self-indulgent.

Transiting Moon trine Natal Venus

Loving family relationships and warm personal and social contacts are emphasized now. This is a good time to create goodwill and trust between yourself and others.

Sharing your hospitality, entertaining, giving something special and personal to a friend, and other loving gestures are emphasized now. You are apt to feel relaxed and pleasantly unambitious now.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Venus

Impulsive purchases based on an emotional urge are not recommended at this time. You are apt to splurge on something which later on turns out not to suit you at all. The temptation to override budget or dietary limits is also quite strong, but short-lived.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Mars

Your sexual and aggressive energies are stimulated, and you take the initiative. Emotional outbursts and impatience are also likely. You’re in a combative, energetic mood.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Mars

Blowups in the domestic sphere are likely, as you aren’t feeling very patient or conciliatory. Passionate feelings of all kinds are aroused.

Your competitive, aggressive, and/or sexual energies are stimulated, and your temper is apt to be aroused also. Patience, especially with family members, is in short supply.

Transiting Moon sextile Natal Mars

Shared enthusiasm for some project or athletic event is accentuated now. This is a good time to coordinate your efforts with others and really get something started.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Mars

You are feeling testy and contentious, which can lead you to rashly say or do something you will later regret. Try not to put yourself into situations which you know from experience try your patience; you will be in short supply now. On the other hand, you may be the target of others’ frustrations and anger, whether justified or not, so try not to make their problem your problem by responding tit for tat… a headache or even an accident could result.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Jupiter

Social events, cultural activities, and entertainment are highly favored. You feel good and can enjoy yourself. There’s a tendency to overindulge in food or other comforts.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Jupiter

Relationships with females are highly favorable now, and you benefit from seeking out social and emotional connections with them. Your mood is expansive and open, and you may overdo in some way – overspend, overeat, or commit yourself to something you really don’t have the resources for.

Transiting Moon square Natal Jupiter

You feel lucky and are apt to overestimate yourself or the possibilities in some situation. Don’t over commit yourself or promise too much, as you’re apt to feel foolish or overextended later. Your mood is jovial, however, and social relations are good.

This is a fortunate time for you, emotionally and possibly in other respects also. A woman can act as a benefactor to you in some way. Social activities are favored also.

You’ll want to be with people now – entertaining or enjoying some light entertainment. Personal relationships, particularly with females, are favored.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Jupiter

In a rather fleeting mood of expansiveness and generosity, you offer a service or donation which is more than you can really afford. Purchasing on impulse is not recommended either, as it is apt to be a rather frivolous and/or regrettable choice. You are in the mood for diversion now, which is fine as long as it doesn’t cost you too much in the long run.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Saturn

You’re feeling quiet, somber, realistic, and contained. If a dark mood comes over you, know that it is temporary. You tend to see things more pessimistically than usual right now.

Duties and obligations seem burdensome or at least emotionally restricting to you, and you may feel self-pity or temporarily down in the dumps. You are not in a sociable, gregarious mood no matter what surroundings you find yourself in.

This is a calm, balanced, rather quiet time. You keep to yourself pretty much and can get some practical chores accomplished.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Saturn

A need for solitude and a disinclination to socialize or get distracted from more pressing matters colors your mood. You may act, feel, or appear aloof and detached. Heed your desire for quietness, peacefulness, and depth, or you are apt to simply feel lonely and left out no matter how many people you are surrounded with. You are feeling rather somber.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Uranus

Restlessness, nervous haste, and rashness can be something of a problem, for you act on impulse and may be out of sync with your environment.

A sudden, unexpected encounter may catch you off guard. You’re also apt to throw routine to the wind and do something quite out of character for you.

You feel a bit wild or impulsive and may act in an impulsive manner which could embarrass you later. Emotional outbursts are also possible, especially if you’ve been feeling especially constrained or stressed.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Uranus

You are in an independent or defiant mood, and you chafe at routine and formalities. However, if you have a great deal of freedom and flexibility in your life at present, you will be in a wild mood and might decide to change your plans for the day quite suddenly and spontaneously. This may upset people who were counting on you more than it bothers you at the moment.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Neptune

You are compassionate, sympathetic, and highly emotional now. Also, your imagination is activated and you may be inspired by some unusual daydream or fleeting thought.

Imagination, fantasy, and the desire to escape the immediate environment are stimulated. Dreaminess, nostalgia, or moodiness may be hard to resist.

Transiting Moon trine Natal Neptune

Your imagination is activated and you’re inclined to feel rather passive & dreamy, or creatively inspired. Music or art moves you very much now.

Transiting Moon sextile Natal Neptune

Your artistic sensitivity, intuition, and imagination are stimulated. A fleeting impression or intuition is apt to be correct.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Neptune

A mysterious, dreamy, or hypersensitive mood comes over you. You may want to retreat from mundane life into some beautiful music, inspirational or escapist literature, or simply your own imagination. You are also gullible at this time and more responsive to atmospherics and subtle vibrations, which you might ignore or be oblivious to at other times. Perfume, incense, colors, lighting, etc. all have a more pronounced effect on you. You may have a temporary lapse in good judgment and common sense.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Pluto

Intense, irrationally strong or compelling feelings emerge now and intimate relationships are deeply emotional. You’re apt to overreact.

You may find something you believed to be lost or irretrievable. Things that have been forgotten or hidden come to the surface. Old issues in your personal relationships arise once again also.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Pluto

Any compulsions or tendencies to emotional extremes will be triggered now. Your inner feelings, especially ones you may habitually downplay or try to ignore such as neediness, guilt, jealousy, passionate desire, or whatever you have been conditioned to believe is unacceptable about yourself, will likely surface in some manner. You are apt to “overreact” to minor events or be gripped with concern over something you see or read about, because these things stimulate memories or feelings of which you are not often conscious.@

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Ascendant

Emotional impulses, moods, and childlike behavior or desires dominate you now and you are apt to do what you feel like doing rather than what you need to or “should” do. All of your emotions are intensified.

Your interaction and perception of others is highly colored by your past experiences and personal prejudices, tastes, and needs. You seek out the familiar and find ways to establish an emotional rapport with other people. Differences between people or encountering strangers may bother you more than usual.

You are apt to feel at odds with yourself or other people right now, as if you can’t quite get into a comfortable rhythm or flow with what is happening in your environment. Oversensitivity and childish impulses are stronger than usual.

Transiting Moon trine Natal Ascendant

Inner harmony and a sense of flowing along comfortably with events and people are accented now. You’re likely to take the path of least resistance and to stay with whatever has proven trustworthy and safe, rather than making significant changes. Relationships with females are helpful now.

Transiting Moon sextile Natal Ascendant

You seek out and receive assurance from family, old friends and allies, or even places, books, or objects from your past. A nostalgic mood is accented.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Ascendant

Females in your immediate environment appear to thwart, interfere, demand, or simply be unreasonably uncooperative toward you. Other people’s idiosyncrasies, personalities, prejudices, or subjective judgments grate against you at this time also, especially when they clash with your own.

You want familiarity, homogeneity, a sense of belonging, and mutual support at this time. You will be less open to and less successful with people or situations which are vastly different from the ones you already know.

Transiting Moon conjunct Natal Midheaven

At this time you are extremely subjective and your mood, emotionally-colored desires, and feelings rule you. Though not a good time for rational judgments or decisions, you can be especially perceptive and sensitive to those around you and you establish an emotional rapport with those in your environment much more quickly.

Transiting Moon opposite Natal Midheaven

At this time your feelings and sensitivity are heightened, and you are prone to seek out a safe haven or to shy away from public life. You feel moody and easily moved by whatever is happening in your environment and less resistant to outside forces.

Transiting Moon square Natal Midheaven

What you feel like doing and your duties versus what you “should” be doing are likely to clash right now. Emotional impulses are very strong, and you are likely to behave in a childlike manner at this time.

A need for support, sympathetic understanding, a sense of security and continuity with the past, and sharing on an intimate, personal level is accented now. You respond to others much more emotionally than you usually would.

Transiting Moon quincunx Natal Midheaven

Your desire for immediate gratification and personal comfort is somehow at odds with your desire to be seen in a favorable light, especially by influential people or those in authority. You may be publicly embarrassed or feel uncomfortably exposed. An uneasy balance between family responsibilities or emotional considerations, and long range goals or your position and reputation is the theme of the moment.
