Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Moon Transits

The Moon spends only about two and a half days in a natal house. This means that its effects occur so quickly that you feel them more as unconscious urges and impulses than conscious reactions to situations. The effects of the transiting Moon, as it makes aspects with your natal planet positions, are often felt for only a matter of hours. Regardless of whether you are consciously aware of them, you will feel the effects of the Moon.

At this time, you will sense a conflict between feelings and reason. You’ll rationally conclude one thing, but your emotions will tell you another.
You’ll likely find yourself swinging between overly rational and overly emotional perceptions of the world.
It will be hard to know if you are perceiving the world accurately, and there will be a lot of emotional coloring to everything you take in. You’ll feel highly sensitive to things other people say and you’ll often perceive slights that weren’t even meant.
It’s not a good time to make decisions as they will be highly subjective and shallow. Rather it’s the moment to take some time out, to withdraw from the constant stimulation of the world around you. Then you’ll be able to get a clearer picture of what’s going on inside. Then you’ll be able to get in touch with your feelings and see them clearly.
