The Moon In You

It's so important for us to take a look at our Moon sign to figure out how we need to take care of ourselves. The Moon -- our emotions, the unconscious, the watery depths, the Mother -- represents such a basic tenet of our nature. Artists, perhaps because of their penchant on making connections in some shape or form, are greatly abetted by attuning with their Moon energy.

Familiarizing yourself with the particular ebb and flow of your Moon sign would help hone an artistic discipline that would capitalize on your natural rhythms and emotional inclinations. For a fruitful harvesting of your artistic gifts it's important to know what feeds you on a day-to-day basis and how your art can be a reciprocal part of that natural flow.

Reading Donna Cunningham's 1988 book Moon Signs is to remind oneself about the incredible power of this luminary and the reacquaint ourselves with the notion that its power rivals that of the Sun. Because the Moon reflects our unconscious drives and motivations, it could be argued that it has an even stronger grip on the steering wheel of our life, as that which is unconscious manifests in ways not subject to our conscious attempts at controlling.  As Cunningham explains, the Moon creates no light of its own but is actually just a giant reflector of our environment, particularly sensitive to the "mood" in which we were reared as kids.

What is the mood of your creative work? What needs to be nurtured to bring about a greater emotional connection to your work? How is your art trying to heal you in some way? To get in touch with your Moon is to get in touch with something so primal and really, simple and natural.

It's important to study the characteristics of the sign your Moon is in and examine how you're taking care of it. For those who are struggling to create consistently, it may be that your Moon is struggling to find a touchstone where it can go and get filled up before sharing a vision to the outside world.

Aries Moons need to get comfortable with taking more risks. They need to show their courage and colors even if it feels like they are the first person on earth to attempt such a feat.

Taurus Moons need consistent and practical applications for their work. They may benefit from creating in a familiar space which feels comforting and reflects a home environment of simplicity. Taurus Moons also need to work when the time feels right; don't push.

Gemini Moons worst enemy is boredom. Seek a wide variety of inspirations -- check out what's new and trendy, and immerse yourself in the classics. Creativity for Gemini Moons springs from making connections between diverse ideas. Follow the winds where they lead you.

Cancer Moons may be protective about their work. Show what you create to your peeps first. Those you trust, your family and friends, can give you the confidence to open up to the creative process and share your pearls with others.

Can't forget a Leo Moon. They need to express themselves in order to thrive. But they can also be sensitive to the whims of their audience. Learn to be your own biggest fan first, and you may not crave the praise of others so intensely.

Virgo Moons feel at home working tirelessly to achieve perfection. The quest to achieve the ideal is a great motivator, but this Moon may also need to learn to embrace the beauty of imperfection.

Libra Moons? They feel at home amongst an atmosphere of conviviality. They seek balance and are dependent on a certain emotional equilibrium. They are inspired by a steady diet of beauty.

Scorpio Moons crave what's beneath the surface. They need to confront their brand of truth with their eyes open. Like an Aries Moon, it takes courage, but in the case of Scorpio it's emotional courage whereas with Aries it's a willingness to jump into the uncharted.

Sagittarius Moons feel life is an endless adventure. Staying open to new possibilities brings an endless stream of new ideas. Bring your workshop on the road with you, or at least insist on a room with a view.

Capricorn Moons need to feed themselves with a certain environment of austerity from time to time -- secure but more so because of their commitment to principals than the superfluousness of connection for the sake of it.

Aquarius Moons need to feed themselves with emotional space, an openness to surprising themselves in their work - a willingness to not conform to fit in with the herd. 

For Pisces, it may be more about disciplining the imagination -- allowing oneself to receive messages through the veil and being comfortable with revealing these gauzy wonderments.
