Why You Feel Happier When The Moon Enters Your Sign

Ah, the Moon when it comes to Astrology is such a wonderful tool when it comes to understanding who you are and what your emotional drives are in life. There is just so much to explore when it comes to the Moon.

As you all know, the Moon takes 28 days to orbit the Earth and through this period it moves through all the signs in the Zodiac. It moves through everything from Aries all the way to Pisces, every month, isn’t that amazing?

The Moon sign changes sign every two to two and a half days, and if you pay special attention to what sign it is on a given day you may realize that your emotional responses and experiences are slightly different, however, you need to be really in tune with this because it is very subtle.

What Happens With The Moon Is In Your Sign?

Some people might have the misconception that you feel more emotional when the Moon is in the same sign as your natal chart Moon, but this isn’t the case at all. This misconception occurs because emotions are associated with the Moon, but remember, emotions aren’t always a bad thing.

In fact, when the Moon is in your sign, you may tend to feel calmness and comfort come over you because the energy feels familiar. The Moon also represents your home and nourishment, so it makes a lot of sense that you will feel more comfortable when the Moon is currently in your home.

You can express yourself freely during this time and you may notice that other people have a better understanding of who you are and what you are feeling during this time. I am of the opinion that when the Moon is in your sign it is probably the most powerful time of the month for you. It is time for you to feel really connected with yourself.

This is a time for you to be more at one with yourself. Your intuition is stronger, you’ll feel more confident, and people will be taking more notice of you. So, make the most of it because it is a great time for you to manifest your desires!
