The Moon Through the Zodiac


The Moon through the zodiac refers to the journey of the Moon as it passes through each astrological sign during its orbit of the Earth.

The zodiacal wheel is a complete circle of 360 degrees. It is divided into twelve sectors for each of the twelve signs of the zodiac. Each sector is 30 degrees. The Moon's orbit is approximately 28 days so it passes through each sign's sector in about two and a half days.

As a reflector of light, the sensitive Moon reflects the energies of each sign as she visits their sectors. The Moon rules instinct and emotion, thus the energetic mood and attitude of the sector she is in influences us on those levels.

The following list shows which activities are favored due to the Moon's position in a given sector.
