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.

During this transit your feelings may overwhelm your rational intellect and make your thinking quite subjective and hard for others to relate to. You’ll feel strongly about expressing yourself and could end up doing so in a polemical way, intensely arguing about topics you normally may not even care about all that much.
And you’ll likely be defensive when people argue back. It’s not a good interaction for anyone involved, but if you pay attention to your emotions, you’ll notice that the urge to rant and polemicize comes from an inner tension, one which could find more rewarding outlets.
Outlets that rather than double the tension, as in arguing with people, would let it be released.
Perhaps some solitary writing on the intellectual problem that is bothering you. Or something physical, a walk up a mountain, some vigorous cardio.
Whatever you choose, after it you’ll feel lighter and more free.
