The Mysterious Moon
The Moon passes over our head every day but most people are totally unaware of its effect upon their lives.
I know you have heard that old disclaimer by science that planetary bodies are too far away to have any effect upon the lives of human beings. But now that belief is no longer held by the scientific community. In fact, it has been proven by Dr. Percy Seymour, an astronomer at Plymouth University, that the effect of planets upon our lives is not dependent upon distance. This means that we are all affected by the magnetic influences of the planets whether we believe it or not.
The power of the Moon has the most immediate effect because it changes signs so often. The Moon magnetizes a different astrological sign (energy field) every two and a half days. This means that it travels through all of the 12 signs of the zodiac during its lunar cycle.
What does this mean for you?
Think about the sign your Sun was in at the time your were born. This means that if you inherited the attitudes of Virgo when you were born, your Sun was in the sign of Virgo. Since signs are attitudes, you have the tendency to be efficient, organized, seek perfection, and like to be of service. Each month, when the Moon passes through Virgo, it will energize your Virgo tendencies. Your Virgo, nit-picking attitudes will be very strong during the Moon's two and a half day journey through the sign of Virgo.
This means that everyone's specific attitudes are stimulated by the Moon at some time during each month.
This is why it makes perfect sense to use the energies of the Moon to bring out a particular attitude (sign) that you want to express. For example, if you were born at the time when Mars was in the sign of Aries and need a lot of physical strength to compete in an event, you would be a lot more energetic if you did so on a day when the Moon was in Aries. This would be especially true if the Moon were full. It is full of energy. This is the essence of proper timing.
If you will use the energies of the Moon to help you get specific goals accomplished in your daily living, you will soon discover its power, and it will no longer be a mystery to you.
