One of the things I love helping entrepreneurs to do is to use astrology to be more in alignment with their (and the universe’s) natural cycles and probably the most impactful way to do this is to align with the zodiac sign of the moon.
The moon has a huge impact on humans, especially women, as our cycles will often synch up with it, but more than that the moon influences our oceans & tides and it is how in ancient times people knew when to plant crops and order their own lives.
Something that many people aren’t aware of is that you can plan each day according to which sign the moon is in and in this blog I’m going to give you some tips on how to do just that!’
The moon in different zodiac signs will likely impact us emotionally and intuitively (especially if you have a cancer moon, Sun or Rising sign natally) and certain activities will be more effective on certain days depending on the zodiac sign the moon is in.
How do we determine which zodiac sign the moon is in?
It can been really helpful to buy an astrological planner such as the Llewellyn Pocket Planner or the Magic of I diary. Both of these will show you each day what sign the moon is in. Alternatively there are apps you can download for your phone such as Moon Phase Calendar. Also a great site to check out is AstroSeek.
