The Moon completes a revolution around the Earth every 29.5 passing through the 12 signs of the zodiac and remaining in each sign for about 2.5 days.

Moon in Aries—this is a dry, barren, masculine sign so it is an ideal time to destroy weeds. It is an excellent time for beginnings, so you would be well advised to turn the soil and prepare it for planting.

Magickally , it is a fresh and enthusiastic Moon to start new ventures. But ensure that you do not lose your original enthusiasm as Aries are noted for launcing themselves into something full throttle at the start and then getting bored and losing the momentum.This is an ideal time for quick results workings as the New Moon in Aries energy would be very in tune with that. Also any working that has to do with the self, especially the beginning of a reinvention or an image change would benefit from this energy. It is an ideal time to look for your new athame/dagger as Aries resonates with iron and sharp things. If there is something that you want to launch that requires a little courage, this is the time for lift-off! This is a good Moon sign to work with health matters to do with the head, face and brain.

Moon in Taurus—this is a very productive time as the Earth will be moist. Taurus is a fixed sign, so it is ideal for  plants which need to remain firm and really get stuck in, such as root crops, and leafy vegetables like lettuce and cabbage. If you plant flowers during a Taurean moon they will be tough cookies and glamorous. This is because Taurus is ruled by the beautiful Venus. Taurus also rules the throat, so you might want to sing whilst you work or play the radio. Apparently there are studies which have illustrated that the indigenous people of the Amazon were instructed by their Shamans to sing as plants respond to and enjoy music. Something soft and gentle for flowers maybe but maybe for the root crops which need to be tough you could sing Status Quo’s “Deeper And Down” (joke)

Magickal workings – this is an excellent profitable time as the Moon is exalted or at its best, in Venus. Think of a project that revolves around love, the arts  or luxury and sensuality as those desires and this Moon are literally a match made in heaven. The good thing is that whatever is initiated now will be fixed/durable and the value will increase. As the sign of Taurus is a fixed one whatever you launch will embed itself like a habit and develop a permanent vibration. So work on things that you desire to do with finances, security and growth, and anything which would enhance your sense of security and wealth. This is a good time to work with physical complaints that relate to the throat, ears and neck.

Your mood will probably be a bit restless and fickle but it is an excellent time to  time to write, study, or communicate with your family, especially siblings or those that would require you to make a small journey.
