Moon Throughout The Houses
The Moon is the fastest moving body in the heavens. It is a very transitory influence in astrology. These are minor aspects which reflect day to day life. They can be related to our various moods. The Moon traveling through the houses reflects what area of life our emotions are directed towards. The transient nature of the Moon means that most aspects only affect us for a few hours. There are exceptions to this rule. Eclipses are one major example. The Moon is also more powerful when it is full or new.
