Astrology offers a unique approach to planning various aspects of our lives. By using the moon's transit through the astrological houses, you can strategically plan activities for optimal outcomes. This guide will walk you through this method step-by-step. Also, I have included a free download so you can get started on this exercise today. This exercise is excerpted from the YesSpiral New Moon Intention Journals.

The Moon as a Cosmic Calendar

The moon is like a big cosmic calendar. Its phases help you keep track of the passage of time. A moon cycle, which I like to call a "moonth" cycle, lasts 29 1/2 days. This cycle includes the new moon phase, waxing first quarter, full moon, and waning third quarter phases, culminating in the dark moon before starting anew.

During these 29 1/2 days, the moon transits through all twelve zodiac signs. This provides an opportunity to optimize your time each moonth by working with the specific energies highlighted at any given time. Additionally, the moon starts a new cycle in a different zodiac sign every moonth. You can incorporate this understanding into your strategic planning to align your activities with the lunar energies.

Understanding the Astrological Houses

The astrological houses each represent different areas of life. By understanding what each house governs, you can align your activities with the moon's transit to maximize success. Here’s a brief overview of what each house signifies:
