The Moon is needs and feelings, what is emotionally attractive and what we attract. It is what satisfies. It is also cravings. Transits to other planets can create feelings in us because everything that impacts our lives will get picked up in our emotional body. However, if you find yourself thinking, “I feeeeeeeel… I neeeeeeed… I waaaaaant…” it is usually connected to something hitting the Moon. Something is hitting your Moon by transit in some way most of the time. It’s nice to be able to look at the transiting planets and figure out whether it’s a passing fancy or something you need to take more time addressing.
If it’s a slow-moving outer planet aspecting your Moon, that’s something that plays out over time. If it’s fast-moving influence, you may want to key in to that so that you can maximize any potential that might be there. Sometimes a square can feel unpleasant and figuring out what type of energy you’re dealing with can help you use up that flavor of energy and expiate the feeling. At least you can figure how long it’s likely to last and plan accordingly.
Transits to the Moon also draw in any natal aspects your Moon has. Any stressful aspect to my Capricorn Moon activates its sextile to my Pisces Sun, and I want to hide. That can make it more complicated to suss out the active influence. The emotion of “want to hide” doesn’t automatically say transit to a Cap Moon, unless you’ve already figured out your natural propensities. What says transit to the Moon is “want,” “need” or “crave” accompanied by an emotion.
So if you find yourself having emotions, needs or cravings you don’t understand, look to your Moon, its transits and aspects. If you find yourself craving pickles and ice cream, go to the pharmacy and get a pregnancy test.
