I used to think that lunar returns were for moon-ruled, Cancers, which I am not. What does a crusty Capricorn care about about the squishy, sobbing moon, huh? But I have to check things out for myself so I started keeping an eye on them. Twenty-five years have passed and my appreciation of these charts has done nothing but increase.
For some reason, breaking life up into month-long chunks seems to make it more manageable. This is appealing to my Cardinal side. They also make life more interesting and enjoyable which pleases my Mutable side. As a bonus, these charts are educational… endlessly, so. Jupiter and the 9th house are prominent in my chart. I always want more. I like to learn!
I’ve written about lunar returns before. I may even be enamored with them. But I am prompted to write this today because my current lunar return is stunning. But what kicks this over the top for me, is the follow-on lunar return is as stunning and the two charts relate.
Specially, I have that large stellium in Capricorn in a Cardinal house… and my moon right on an angle.
Next month the chart flips. The Capricorn will be in the opposite house and my moon is again, right on an angle, but it’s the opposite angle. That got me thinking. And this is when the (new) learning comes in.
I know what to do with Cardinal energy. It doesn’t matter if I like it – taking charge – I do know what’s required to make a chart like this work. I probably wouldn’t choose to have two of them back to back but whatever… I can deal. So if this is true, which modality is least preferable?
I’m probably asking the question to better accept my situation over these next weeks. If I don’t like this… would I like to have two months with Mutable signs and house, dominant? What about Fixed?
I haven’t come up with the answer yet, but it’s a question you can ask yourself. Each month, you’re given a map and some tools and a task. What type situation might suit you?
For example, you might have the 6th/12th house emphasized or Virgo/Pisces. How would feel about thirty days of self-sacrifice and service? Or what if it is your 2nd/8th house and you’re suddenly stubborn and staying put, till your dying breath?
It’s so cool. These charts are a life-school. I just love them.
So what do you think? If you’re new to this, I sell Lunar Return reports very cheaply, due to my love affair with them. If you select the thirteen-month option, the reports cost less than four dollars a month. There is no end to benefits of these charts.
Do you mind your lunar returns? How does they help you?
