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 a pisces moon |

how would you describe your emotional temperament in difficult situations?

| it depends on the type of situation, because i can be calm and collected in instances where everyone is freaking out.

but in situations of high stress for me, i tend to get anxious, tightly wound up and still under the false impression that i have it all under control (lol). for a long time i convinced myself that it was an acceptable coping mechanism, because i managed to get shit done regardless. but I realized that my stress still seeps out in ways i’m not always aware of, but that people still have to deal with. lately i’ve been trying to practice letting go and letting be, because byose n’ibyisi and ain’t nothing that serious really (but people and their feelings are!☺) |

what are you especially grateful for right now?

| so much! a wise coworker recently told me “have a good day, insist on it no matter what!” and i try to remember that on the bad days especially.

every day i am just overwhelmingly grateful for sooooo much. from the matriarchs in my life, and siblings, to the incredible amount of love i get from real ones, far and near— the nearest being my beautiful two puppies. for the time and ability to pause, reflect and grow.

the daily list is honestly endless, and i know my mindset is what had to change to allow for this, so i’m especially grateful for that. |


pisces moon

pisces moons are usually sensitive people. they tend to be emotional sponges. this makes them extra caring, because they feel like fixing the negative energy they sense is their duty. they are true born dreamers whose minds can wander further than the average person. many well-known dreamers such as prince, martin luther king jr and erykah badu have this astrological placement.


pisces moon

an important thing for a pisces moon to keep in mind is space. being mindful of where they are choosing to be and with whom they choose to spend their time with is especially important for these individuals because of their ability to pick up on energies easily. mastering the art of distancing themselves from other people’s emotions is also a major key for pisces moons.

artistic and creative outlets are helpful in releasing emotions for pisces moons. this way, their imagination can run as wild as it needs to with no restraint.
