When the Moon is in Aries

The Mood of Aries

The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to “go with the flow” of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

If you’re following the Moon, see if you don’t sense the mood change from dreamy and diffuse Pisces to fired up Aries. It brings emotional vitality and the drive to act on feelings. The Moon in Aries speeds up instinctual reactions, and might put us in an edgy, punchy mood. We’re restless to start something! It’s a good time for firsts that mean facing your fears. That butterflies in the stomach feeling let’s you know you’ve shoved off from your own comfort zone.

There’s a spark of momentum that is like the thrust of Spring, or the lusty look in a young lover’s eye. It fosters the desire to keep things simple, and do more than you talk about doing. If you’re one that sits a lot, this is a great time to move the gams or take a challenging martial arts class.

Doing something out of the ordinary, that has a physical component, is very satisfying under an Aries Moon.

This can be an emotionally cathartic few days. Instead of sidling up to a problem, you can attack it head on. If you’ve been bottling up righteous anger, this Moon gives you the courage to let the truth fly. It brings out the “fight” in everybody. Getting into it with others is always risky, but it provokes change, and sometimes for the better.

It’s a great time to have an opening for an art show, a business, or to sell your house. It supports you if you’ve got to be dynamic, for a job interview or on a date.

You can go ahead and start that project or try to sell your idea to others. Quick short activities are favored, rather than doing any tedious footwork. You can encourage a friend, work on self-promotion materials, or throw a party.

There’s urgency with this Moon that can lead to impulsive acts. You might do some soul searching on what you’d do if you could do anything. Aries is an invincible energy that has an innocent belief that anything is possible.

When the Moon is in Aries, it’s a good time to dream big, and soul search for your passions.

The Moon in Leo

The Mood of Leo
The Moon sets the emotional tone as it transits through the Zodiac signs. It changes signs every 2 1/2 days. You can work with this rhythm to “go with the flow” of the Moon. You can use it to know the general feeling tone to expect.

When the Moon is in Leo, we want to LOL! It’s time to party! We emerge from the homey Cancer Moon, and want to be out where the action is. Joy for living comes up from the heart, and has us looking around for fun.

We want to live large.
This Moon brings a cheery vibe, making it easier to be lifted out of the doldrums. You might want to leave the day open, and let your spontaneous mischievous child inside lead the way. There’s a lure to colorful, special places like museums, food fairs and festivals and glamourous high end boutiques. It’s a mood heightened by spectacles like parades, costume parties and children’s theme parties. There’s delight in playing make-believe under this Moon, above the mundane of life.

This is a flirty Moon, and you get away with it, because it’s all for fun. The Leo lunar vibe brings out the cocky bravado in men and the diva in women.

You might spend more time with the mane and dress, in anticipation of being seen. It’s a Moon to revel in being admired and taking pride in appearance.

When the Moon is in Leo, there’s sparky inspiration in the air, and we may encourage each other to shine more brightly. Go ahead and hold the stage. Tell a story and make it dramatic. Make some children laugh by being a clown. Tap into your inner thespian, and make all the world your stage!

Things to do when the Moon is in Leo:
tell jokes; send funny pictures on Facebook; surprise someone with a just-for-fun gift; encourage someone you love; accessorize; style your hair in a way that gets attention; wear warm colors (red, orange, yellow); smile when walking down the street; dance to your favorite music; have a girls night out; go on an adventure with a child; take a creative risk; work on your screenplay or play; decorate your home for the holidays.

Zodiac Sign Qualities

Zodiac Sign Qualities

Explore the meaning of Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable signs

Tarotcom Staff

Ok friends, are you ready to dive a little bit deeper into Astrology? You probably know there are 12 zodiac signs and four elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water), but have you heard about zodiac sign “qualities?”

Every sign is influenced by one of three qualities: Cardinal, Fixed or Mutable. You can get your Essential Birth Chart report to learn more about how the qualities effect you personally. Each of the qualities is defined by a point within each season: Cardinal signs begin a new season, Fixed signs carry the weight of the season, and Mutable signs conclude the season.

Take fall, for example. Fall Equinox falls on September 22, the same day the Sun enters Libra. Because Libra kicks off the fall season, that makes Libra a Cardinal sign. Scorpio takes over in the midst of fall, making it a Fixed sign. And the season concludes with the Sun in Sagittarius, making that a Mutable sign.

Get it? Astrology is all about nuance, so to truly understand a zodiac sign you must explore the quality each is associated with. So now that you understand how the qualities are structured, let’s take a look at each of the three Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable qualities, what they mean and how they shape your personality.

Cardinal signs

There are four Cardinal signs: Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn. Because these signs each start a new season, the quality of their energy is full of initiative. Cardinal signs are impulsive and dynamic, and they push strongly to start new things. In general, people with Cardinal signs in their birth charts generate more new ideas and projects, while those lacking Cardinal energy are more passive.

Fixed signs

There are four Fixed signs: Taurus, Leo, Scorpio and Aquarius. These signs carry the weight of each season, which gives them a sturdy quality. Fixed signs are capable of great endurance, and generally people with much Fixed energy in their birth charts are stable and focused, whereas those lacking Fixed energy may not have much sticktoitiveness or perseverance.

Mutable signs

There are four Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. Because these signs fall at the conclusion of each season, their energy anticipates movement and change. People with Mutable signs in their birth charts tend to be more flexible and adaptable to the changing world around them, while those lacking Mutable energy may be stubborn and inflexible or have a difficult time adjusting to new situations.

How qualities are used

When you’re learning Astrology, you’ll discover that every person has a mix of different zodiac signs, elements and qualities in their birth charts. Once you understand the energy of each quality and combine that information with what you know of each zodiac sign and element, a more complete picture will begin to develop.

For example, the Aries zodiac sign is the element of Fire and the quality is Cardinal. This “Cardinal Fire” combination is very bold, so the more Aries energy a person has in their birth chart, the more brazen they will be. On the other hand, Taurus is an Earth sign with a Fixed quality, so it would be called “Fixed Earth” and its overall energy is very slow and grounded.

Knowing how much of each quality you have in your birth chart is very important. These astrological nuances are what shape us as individuals, so going beyond your Sun sign is key when it comes to understanding Astrology.
