“The Moon upon her fluent route/Defiant of a road…”

This post was written by Brandi Palechek

At twenty-three weeks pregnant, I am beginning to contemplate more and more my upcoming role as mother. So of course I look to the moon. Even as a child I associated the moon with mother. The face in the moon was not ‘The Man in the Moon’, but  Jesus’s mother, Mary.

As an astrologer, I know that the moon can signify a lot about the mother, as well. So I begin to contemplate my experience with my own mother based on my moon’s position, and how I may be as a mother myself. My moon is in Virgo in the ninth house, very close to the midheaven and I have a few pretty hard aspects and one really nice one. I could interpret so many things just based on these few facts in my chart…my childhood, my future child’s childhood…

When looking at the moon in your chart, you can remember a few things to help guide you. The moon describes the feminine, how you view your mother or how you nurture others.  The moon is your intuitive feeling nature. What sign and house your moon is in will give you clues to how you can find comfort in the world. The house your moon is in will show your sensitivity and how you are influenced by others, and will be the most fluctuating area in your chart. Finally, the moon shows something of your domestic life, and for a woman, how she relates to her body.

Looking at the moon, it is at once magical and frightening, fragile and wild. It represents constant change, but in such a defined way. It is a dark magnet, and a bright companion. Emily Dickinson had it right. For each of us, the moon has indeed carved her own road and travels it well.

I love this quote. 🙂

My moon is in Scorpio in my 8th house. It is conjunct with Jupiter in Libra also in the 8th house.

My daughter’s moon is in Capricorn on the very edge of her 4th house, very close to the 5th house. It is opposed by Saturn (11th house), Venus (10th house), and Mercury (10th house). It is also Trine with her Ascendent in Virgo.

Congratulations, Cat!

How do I find out what moon affiliates with me?

Do you mean, how do you find your natal moon in your chart? Well, if you cannot do your own chart or have it done by an astrologer, it’s pretty easy and free. You just need your birth data (date/time/place of birth). Then go to a site like Astrodienst (www.astro.com). There you’ll find a section to get your free natal chart. Also, Llewellyn sells lots of different reports and charts, as well as books, if you want to learn more about different aspects in astrology.

I tried a few sites and was delighted to begin with. Unfortunately…when I ordered a natal chart for a friend…they were the exact same. Pity. Thank you for your help however.
