Life Lessons for Empaths

In astrology, the Moon represents our inner-most workings. Our deepest, emotional selves are symbolized by the Moon’s placement in our natal charts and we carry this energy with us throughout our lives. It impacts how we develop and maintain relationships and how we relate to our experiences, thoughts, and feelings. The Moon is a powerful indicator in astrology, as are the various Moon progressions we will experience in our lives. 

Every 2-3 years, your Moon “progresses” into the next Zodiac sign which denotes the overall mood and impression of this time period for you. This is a personal transition that takes place internally, so others do not experience the same progressions as you. They are considered a predictive phenomenon, meaning that we take a look at where your Moon will be ahead of time to garner an understanding of what energies we can expect to be moving through you during that time. 

How to Calculate Moon Sign Progressions

Progressions, or secondary progressions as some astrologers call it, adhere to a system referred to as “a day for a year.” This simply means that the position of the planets each day after you were born is actually representative of your next planetary progression. For example, if your Moon sign Gemini, and two days after your birth the Moon transitioned into Cancer, your first Moon progression would be from the sign of Gemini and into the sign of Cancer. And just as the lunar cycle takes around 28 days to complete, your Moon sign will progress through all signs and houses after about 28 years.

Moon Progressions and Our Emotional Wellbeing 

As your Moon progresses between signs, the change and shift in feelings, moods, and perspectives can feel a little jarring. Because the Moon has such a powerful influence over our state of emotional being, it is important to know what your progression sign has in store for you. Understanding how this energy impacts us can help us determine the best way to nurture ourselves to cultivate harmonious emotional wellbeing.  

Aries 

If your Moon progression is transitioning into Aries or is already in the sign of Aries, expect feelings of restlessness. Typically, Aries is a sign of action, passion, and ferocity. For those unfamiliar with these energies, it is easy to get lost in a state of restless inaction and/or overcompensation. 

For those with a Moon that progressed into Aries, focus on grounding yourself. There is nothing wrong with lofty goals and fiery passion but remember not to get lost in these sensations. Connect to the Earth by going for a hike or nature walk, planting your bare feet on the ground, or taking a dip in the ocean. Planting little reminders of presence will be helpful for you! 

Taurus

A Moon sign progressed into Taurus from Aries will experience a startling urge to release and pause. To those inexperienced with Taurus energy, you may even confuse these new sensations with laziness. However, this Moon progression is here to show you that rest and comfort are okay and an intrinsic part of life. It doesn’t hurt to succumb to the desire to nap, upgrade your bed set to something softer, or pamper yourself in the space. 

Becoming overwhelmed by the need for comfort may leave you in escapist fantasy. Taurus Moon progressions must be careful of leaning too far into self-indulgence. A healthy balance of reality and relaxation will serve you well. 

Gemini 

Curiosity is the name of the game for Moon progressions in Gemini. You may feel overcome with the urge to learn a new skill or invest in your education. This progression will be somewhat of a wake-up call after spending time in ultra-cozy Taurus. A Gemini Moon progression is ready to dive in headfirst onto new ventures and experiences. 

Embrace this new inquisitive nature and follow your interests. Lean into your childlike wonderment during this phase in your life and you may find that you’ll be rewarded. 

Cancer 

As you move into the Cancerian Moon progression, take note of your emotions. The sign of Cancer is known for its emotional depths, with a propensity for being sensitive and empathetic. This Moon sign progression might pose some challenges for you if you don’t brace yourself and understand the energies influencing you. 

Take extra time to invest in self-care during this phase of your life. Nurture your feelings, but don’t get lost in them. Spending time doing things that you love will get you out of your head and back into your body – a gift for anyone whose Moon progression is currently in Cancer. 

Leo 

Leos are known for their vibrancy, creativity, and bold impact on the people in their lives. Coming out of the emotional deep end of Cancer, expect the transition to Leo to feel somewhat rocky. Gently release the weight of your previous Moon progression and hold your head up high – you are exactly where you need to be. 

A Moon progression into Leo will empower and embolden you to take creative risks. Lean into these instincts – always with a plan – and follow your intuition. You may experience a personal awakening during this time, as you embody your fullest, bravest self. 

Virgo 

When your Moon sign progresses into Virgo, it can feel like the party suddenly stops. The abrupt nature of this transition can prove challenging, especially if you aren’t aware of what’s happening to you energetically. This may be a time where you feel inclined to overanalyze everything and meticulously plan out your life. 

The Virgo Moon progression allows us to take some responsibility for our current situations. We can want change but we need to put action behind it for anything to come of it. The energy of Virgo allows us to plan and articulate the path towards change. Consider starting or keeping a journal this time to track your progress towards your goals. You may feel that this quells any restlessness you might be feeling. 

Libra 

The Libra Moon progression will force you to come back out of your shell and get out there. This energy will empower you to strengthen relationships and find the balance in your life. There will be a strong emphasis on social connections, so you may see that your friend group widens or that you start dating someone new. 

During this progression, it will be important for you to stay mindful. It is all too easy to get caught up in the drama of everyday life, but meditation and mindfulness will give you some much-needed distance from any interpersonal chaos. 

Scorpio

A Moon progressing from Libra into Scorpio may be the most jarring progression in the Zodiac. Where Libra leans towards balance and harmony, Scorpio is unafraid to take a firm stance. You may also feel as though your intuition has been heightened and you are better able to connect and empathize with those around you. 

Scorpio is a sign that tends towards volatility and emotional extremes. This can prove to be a difficult placement so be sure that you are tracking your daily moods and feelings. Remember you have tools to connect to spirit and always have the option for self-care nights. This time will teach you a lot about your emotional range, just be sure to stay in touch with yourself while experiencing it. 

Sagittarius 

This Moon progression will feel like a breath of fresh air. As you move from Scorpio to Sagittarius, expect a huge emotional release. A Sagittarius Moon progression will have you embracing the light and leaning into that happy-go-lucky feeling. Relish in the ease and joy of this progression and take advantage of your heightened confidence. 

During this time in your life, it will be important for you to focus on things that bring you joy. This Sagittarius energy will have you seeking out fun, just be sure to follow your instincts here. 

Capricorn 

The practical sign of Capricorn, like Scorpio, is a difficult placement for the dreamy, emotional Moon. This progression will serve as a major redirection towards order and structure. You may feel attuned to your emotions but this is no reason to neglect your self-care. 

With a Moon progression in Capricorn, it is important you remain in touch with your feelings. It will be easy for you to bypass or overlook them at this point in your life but remain connected to your inner-most self by mindful meditation. Creating self-care rituals during this time wouldn’t hurt either! 

Aquarius 

An Aquarius Moon progression almost always foretells major life changes. As Aquarius is the sign of originality, individuality, and eccentricity, so expect shifts related to these themes. Additionally, Aquarian energy beckons us towards community and emphasizes the importance of the greater good. As a result, you may see that you’ve grown passionate about a social justice cause and/or have taken up a new, unique hobby. 

Remaining connected to your sense of self will be key during this Moon progression. It will be easy to float away with the energy of Aquarius but remember who you are and enjoy the newness this progression brings. 

Pisces 

As your Moon progresses into Pisces, you may feel a sense of heightened intuition and pull towards spirituality and the Divine. This Moon sign is known to connect those who have to collective energies more easily, with a certain ease and acceptance of the flow of life. It can also, however, trigger mental health issues. 

It is absolutely crucial that you take note of your mental state while your Moon is in this sign. Consider starting a mood journal or tracker, so you aren’t caught off-guard by overwhelming feelings or emotional patterns. Nurture your wellbeing by incorporating self-care rituals that connect you back to your intuition. Foster your inner voice and live in accordance with it, it will serve you well. 

Holding Space for These Changing Emotional States 

As you progress through each Moon sign, you will notice how the major themes of each sign impact your emotional wellbeing. Being aware of how these energies are influencing your life is essential to implementing tools that keep your vibrations high, regardless of the changes. Connecting with your intuition and inner voice will be the only guide you need to understand how to best navigate these shifts and feelings. Remember those progressions are a natural part of our lives and it is okay that they impact us the ways they do, but you have the power to choose how your life is impacted by these energies.
