The moon happens to be the fastest moving “planet” and for the same reason, the Progressed Moon is also the fastest moving progressed “planet”. Moving at approximately 12 degrees per year, the Progressed Moon passes through the zodiac sign for about two and half years. These two and a half year periods, there is so much that happens in form of attitude shifts in our lives. Normally, the current sign projected by the Progressed Moon shows the energies we are drawn to at that particular time.
Since the zodiac signs move from masculine then feminine and back to masculine and so forth, the two and a half year periods comprise a shift in our energies from outward to inward and then outward again.
Progressed Moon in Aries
This phase of life is focused on outward-oriented energy. During this period, challenges, stimulations, and direct confrontations abound. The focus is on fresh starts, new beginnings, new projects, and new found courage because there is a feeling of motivation in these directions.
Progressed Moon in Taurus
After welcoming change and action in Aries, Progressed Moon in Taurus signals a slowdown and the beginning of seeking out security in our lives. This is a somewhat impatient and competitive period and we cease to look for new experiences as we manage our lives in a more secure and solid manner. During this period, we value predictability.
Progressed Moon in Gemini
As the Progressed Moon gradually shifts signs to Gemini, there is an ignition of curiosity. There is a strong need to communicate with others as we explore our little worlds, hope for open doors and reach out to others. This is a markedly busy and more sociable period in our lives where new friendships are made.
Progressed Moon in Cancer
This is a time when we seek the comforts of a home base. We gradually turn inward and start focusing on building our families and solidifying our home base. There is a greater need for security and comfort.
Progressed Moon in Leo
This period in our lives come with a desire for self-expression. Being a masculine phase, our energies are directed outwards and we are confident moving about in the world because of our greater need to be seen, heard and noticed. This time is also characterized by the desire to create and put our talents on display.
Progressed Moon in Virgo
This phase indicates a desire and need to perfect our craft. It is a time of dedication to health, work and routine. It is more of an introverted period when you have your nose to the grindstone.
Progressed Moon in Libra
This ushers in a sociable atmosphere with the increased need to compromise and just be with people. Attention is shifted towards attractiveness, physical appearance, as well as graciousness.
Progressed Moon in Scorpio
Emotional commitments during this phase come into focus and the hunger for deeper experiences and powerful bonds come into play. This time, harmony takes a backseat as you reach out to more powerful and significant things in your life.
Other signs to watch out for include Progressed Moon in Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces.
