Today’s deeper dive into astrology has to do with understanding your progressed moon in astrology.

Unlike your natal moon– the placement of the moon where you were born– your progressed moon changes every two and a half years, and it adds an interesting layer to interpreting your astrology.

For this deep dive, I’m thrilled to introduce you to astrologer Abby Maxam. 

I’m turning it over to Abby now, and as I post this I am off to look at my own progressed moon at the moment.

“What is your progressed Moon and how can you work with this progression for your benefit?

Learning about your current progressed Moon cycle can give you clues as to how you deal with energy levels, stress, decisions, creativity and connection. It is as if you are trying on a new pair of sunglasses with new lenses and color – giving you a different way of seeing the world. Not to be confused with your Natal Moon which is determined at birth and never changes, your progressed Moon changes every 2.5 years.

The progressed Moon moves about 1 degree each month and remains in a zodiac sign for about 2.5 years. So every 2.5 years there is an opportunity to feel the energy of a different zodiac sign. The Moon represents your emotional body and how you process and feel emotion, so adding this layer to your chart can give you a new flavor and theme for 2.5 years.

You will feel this new energy most strongly at the beginning and end of the 2.5 year cycle. For example, an introverted and sensitive Cancer could have a progressed Moon in the fiery, bold sign of Aries giving the Cancer a new burst of energy and action.

Each zodiac sign has gifts and challenges, so knowing these for each sign can help you with clarity and awareness. The sign of your progressed Moon can be both different or the same as your Natal Moon and Sun sign depending on the timing.
