MOON SIGN CHANGES for APRIL
Each Month the Moon passes through each sign. You will have a personal NEW MOON identity reset as the Moon meets your Sun sign. The Moon will also return to your natal moon position every month. This pulls you unconsciously back to your own birth, your connection to your mother and your unconscious memories. It is a great time to meditate at your monthly lunar return. Note how you and others’ feel as the Moon passes through each sign. Pay attention to the element the moon is soaking up as she moves.
