Because the Moon moves around the zodiac so quickly (completing a
approximately 28 days), transits of the Moon are truly "transitory".
They are brief in duration and not as
meaningful and significant as outer planet transits. However, they
are quite important when electing a date for a special event.

Moon Transits to Natal Houses
Moon transiting the First House
Your focus now is outward-oriented. You feel the need to express
yourself--to manifest your inner world in the outer world in some manner. It's a
good time to focus on new beginnings and fresh starts. At this time, your skin
is thin--you are more sensitive to the vibrations and energies around you,
particularly in your immediate environment. You are inclined to act on impulse,
or to react automatically based on your basic emotional orientation, rather than
approaching the world objectively. It's easy to be emotionally touched by
something now, but also to feel hurt or disappointed. In the 2-3 days of this
transit, you tend to take things very personally. Some restlessness is likely
now, and could impel you to make some small personal changes, such as changing
your "look" or your living environment in little ways. You might deal with the
public in some manner. You could also be feeling emotional or sensitive about
your appearance or manner.
Moon transiting the Second House
Your focus now is on emotional security. How much you have in terms of money
and possessions can be an issue now, and tends to impact how you feel about
yourself. This is not a time of emotional bravery. Rather, you tend to keep the
status quo. You value predictability for the 2-3 days of this transit. You don't
look for new experiences as much as you put effort into managing your life in
order to feel solid and secure. Material or tangible things have more importance
to you right now. Feeling emotional about your financial position could figure

of stimulation. You could find it hard to focus on any one particular task. Your
curiosity is ignited. New friendships or contacts might be made. You might find
yourself talking more than usual, perhaps about the past. Emotional
communications could figure now.
the Fourth House
Your attention turns inward and towards your domestic affairs during this
2-3 day transit. You feel the need for more privacy than usual, and you tend to
focus on building or solidifying your home base. You have a greater need for
security and the feeling of being safe and comfortable during this period. This
is a time for building your sense of security. Family and personal matters take
precedence over worldly affairs just now.
How you feel about your support system at this stage in your life will determine
Moon transiting the Fifth House
You are likely feeling decidedly more outgoing during this 2-3 day transit
than you were feeling while the Moon transited your fourth house. This is an
expressive few days--your energies are directed outwards as you feel more
confident moving about in the world. You have an emotional need to be heard,
seen, and noticed. An increased desire to create, and to display your talents,
is often experienced during this phase. Recreation, hobbies, romance, and
anything that gives you pleasure is now more important to you than usual. You
are feeling especially amorous or at least more inclined to express your loving
feelings now. Others tend to tune into you emotionally. You could get a sudden
desire to see a movie, explore a creative urge, play a game, or take in a play,
for example. Enjoy yourself and indulge your whims, within reason of course.
Moon transiting the Sixth House
After a somewhat naive and playful few days, while the Moon transited your
fifth house, the current 2-3 day phase indicates a need and/or desire to perfect
your craft. This is a time of dedication to work, health, and routine. This is a
more introverted period when you might have your "nose to the grindstone", so to
speak. You might set your feelings aside in order to take care of details now,
or you could be more emotionally sensitive about your work, health, and daily
routine. Your senses are more acute and you could find minor aches and pains are
now more noticeable. As well, you could find that little things
that are out of order in your life become more apparent. Cleaning and
re-organizing may be in order now. Your mood is likely to impact your health
more than ever. Try not to stress over little things. Instead, work on improving
and perfecting the smaller systems in your life so that you can move on without
Moon transiting the Seventh House
Close personal and business relationships are highlighted now. How you feel
about your close relationships or partnerships will largely determine your mood
during these 2-3 days. You might have emotional confrontations now or warm,
nurturing relations, again depending on your current circumstances. Sometimes
this transit correlates with the need for a consultation, and usually one-on-one
relationships figure. An increased need to be with people, to socialize, and to
compromise are featured during this transit. More attention to physical
appearance and attractiveness, as well as graciousness, could also figure. You
are in the position to learn much about yourself by listening to others. The
need to create or maintain a harmonious environment dominates now, but getting
to that point can entail some conflict! Feeling emotional about your
relationships could also figure now.
Moon transiting the Eighth House
There can be a hunger now for deeper experiences and more powerful bonds.
Emotional commitments come into focus during the 2-3 days of this transit. You
are looking for more meaning in your life, and any activity that stirs your
emotions attracts. On a more mundane level, money and possessions
could be emotional issues now. Be aware that you could over-react to matters
during this transit, finding it hard to detach yourself emotionally in order to
look at life objectively. You are not as sociable during this brief trend,
preferring to analyze and feel out your life's circumstances than to put
yourself "out there".
Moon transiting the Ninth House
Freedom on all levels is the focus during this 2-3 day transit -- not only
physical freedom of movement and expression, but mental and spiritual freedom as
well. The emotional need now is expansion and growth. You do not want to be
limited by boundaries or barriers. This is a more gregarious placement of the
Moon. Independence, new experiences, and intellectual growth are the major
focus. You tend to take more trips or embark on adventures--however big or
small--during this transit. Emotional boredom or restlessness could be at the
root of this. Breaking the routine is in order. This is a good time to catch a
break and get some perspective on your life. Feeling emotional about your
opinions or beliefs could also figure now.
Moon transiting the Tenth House
Your attention now is on approval and recognition. The focus is on
establishing some sort of order and control in your life. A stronger need for
recognition and for concrete success is typical of this 2-3 day transit.
Discontent with your position in life could be magnified now.
Matters surrounding your profession or the authority figures in your life come
to the foreground. Sensitivity to your reputation or how others view you can
figure now. You are noticed for what you do (and don't do), what you have
done (or haven't done). It's time to be on your best behavior!
Moon transiting the Eleventh House
This is a more sociable and gregarious transit of the Moon. Stronger social
awareness and a desire to belong to a group may figure now, although sometimes
it's more about expressing your own individuality and breaking the rules.
Networking is the keyword for this 2-3 day period. It's a good time to spend
with friends or groups. However, you are more sensitive to the moods of those
around you, and you could be feeling emotional about your sense of belonging (or
lack of) with like-minded people.
Moon transiting the Twelfth House
Heightened sensitivity and an emotional need to connect with your inner
world is dominant during this 2-3 day transit. This is often a more introverted
period in the lunar month when the focus is on your dreams and longings,
personal creativity, and sensitivity. Time spent alone may be necessary, and
some form of emotional retreat is natural. You could be more
insecure than usual, and it's best to hold back on starting new projects for the
