One of the “planets” in astrology, the Moon’s power is to make things real, to give them a body. Its swift moving influence is responsible for turning planetary configurations into real events. In this sense the lunar current acts as a sort of womb or incubator. The sign of the Moon as well as the planet it is currently aspecting contributes considerably to the general nature of a day. The Moon is the swiftest of all of the planetary bodies that astrology considers, circling the entire zodiac every 27 days. In light of the Moon’s special importance, a whole section has been devoted to it.
