How Positioning Of The Moon Can Help Know One's Emotional State

According to the placement of the moon, in a particular house and sign, it can help signify the state of the person with the help of the Moon's placement. Your mental activity is always based on the characteristics of the house and your mind is based on the element of the sign.

When your Moon is present alone, without any support on either side, then the nature of the element aggravates towards the negative side. It is better to be in a safe mode and not to fall in the burdening phase of life, which aggravates the characteristics of the sign.

If your's is a water sign, your moon is always swimming in the deepest emotional seas. You should try to sail in the safe waters.

If it is a Fire sign, reduce any element that gives heat, so that others can also approach you.

If your's is an Earth sign, add some more flexibility in your thoughts, so that you can make your understanding better about others and vice versa.

If your Moon sign is in the Air element, try to be more reliant, so that people can find you as a grounded person with stronger views.

Relationships are getting more complicated these days. Even though we are technically connected, we are emotionally distant. We are becoming less able to connect with each other.
