The moon, the ruler of the emotional water sign Cancer, is one of the most powerful planetary bodies in astrology.

Just as it controls the ebb and flow of the tides, it controls our rising and falling emotional tides. It's responsible for our instincts and how we react to high intensity situations.

While most people are familiar with their sun sign, the position of the moon in your chart is just as important as it determines your "inner self," how you interpret emotions, and the way you listen to your heart. As the moon travels through the zodiac, its position in each sign has a distinct influence on the energy that surrounds us.

No matter what sign the moon falls under, the moon's phase holds some of the most important astrological significance. During the moon cycle, we have the opportunity to check in with our routines, habits, and goal completion. While the new moon is a time for goal-setting and intention-making, the full moon presents an opportunity to revel in the benefits that manifest from the work you've put in. It's also a time when important truths come to light.
