Moon transit in astrology is like a cosmic game of hide-and-seek, with the Moon as the ever-elusive object of our search.
But what exactly is a Moon transit, and why is it so important?
Essentially, it’s when the Moon moves from one sign of the zodiac to another.
It’s kind of like the Moon is on a field trip, taking a tour of each sign in the sky.
Different moon transits can indicate different things for us here on Earth, depending on the sign and the other factors in the sky
For instance, if the Moon is transiting through Pisces, we may find ourselves getting a bit more emotional or creative.
While if it’s transiting through Virgo, we may feel a bit more organised and analytical (or maybe just a bit more of a perfectionist – no judgement!).
You never know what the Moon transit might bring, but it’s important to be aware of it – especially if you’re the type of person who can’t decide between two things!
So don’t forget to check what the Moon is up to, because you never know when it’ll make you burst into tears (or a spontaneous dance party!)
