finding meaning in the ordinary


in astrology, the moon sign is one of the most important aspect in a chart. put simply, the sign one’s moon was in at the time of their birth gives us an idea of how the person tends to react and deal with their emotions. as the world shifts, leaving us with so much to digest, we need to find ways to unpack our emotions. understanding our emotional reactions through astrology is one way to navigate the maze of our internal makeup.

what’s your moon sign?

| i’m an aquarius moon |

how would you describe your emotional temperament in difficult situations?

| i used to go into frozen mode, also read as avoidant but recently, i try and be as present as possible in my body by taking note of my breath and the sensation i feel from head to toe. i find that this levels my emotions and puts me in a space where i can take action calmly. deep breaths are my saving grace. |

what are you especially grateful for right now?

| every day i thank god for my space. it’s my sanctuary. when i’m struggling to flow with life’s rhythm, i find comfort and safety in my home. it’s where i regroup, where i am naturally my most authentic self. my space is the truest expression of gem. i’m also appreciating my soul family so much this season. each and every one of them is a reminder of the beautiful synergy that comes from holding space for unique expression. |


aquarius moon

people with their moon in aquarius seldom show their emotions easily. they often believe doing so is messy and they pride themselves on being able to deal with their feelings in an orderly fashion. they understand everyone around them, making them great friends to keep. aquarius is the sign of innovation and uniqueness. lunar aquarians often need time alone and will usually extend this gesture to their loved ones. sometimes, they may feel lonely because of this habit. famous aquarius moons include miriam makeba, muhammad ali and solange knowles.


aquarius moon

we come in this world as individuals, but we are all connected - one way or another. life wasn’t originally designed to be experienced alone and that’s an important thing for aquarius moons to remember. i would recommend them to step out of their comfort zones and gather more with their loved ones. as an aquarius moon, you’ll find that your community will fuel a lot of your ideas and inventions (hello innovation).
