As the Moon moves through the zodiac signs, it highlights the natural energy of the sign that it passes through. The transits through the signs are extremely fast, meaning extra rhythm is added to the already present characteristics of each sign, so for example an angry Aries, could become even more agitated.
How do the Lunar transits impact us?
This satellite's transit through each sign affects the way people feel about themselves and the degree of satisfaction they get from their current life. It also touches on the way they view their relationships with their children, parents, family life, as well as other areas related to their roots. This process is often at the root of our desire for change and transformation.
N.B. No matter what your horoscope sign is, each of us will be impacted by the Moon's movement, even when it isn’t in our own zodiac sign.
