This post is about natal Moon.
To calculate natal Moon, your exact time of birth is required. There is no bad position of Moon, only its destructive and inadequate use by the individual. Moon is variable as it moves quickly through signs. Exercises and techniques can be used to change its emotional imprint in your everyday life. You always have the same natal Moon.
It can manifest in different ways and thus bring an emotional experience that will allow closer sense of fulfillment and happiness. It can add into your life the emotional relationships that are needed for your spiritual growth. During just one month, each of us experiences transiting Moon in all these 12 energies in a certain percentage according to your natal chart. Much more important than the sign and the house is the phase of Moon, which I will also write about.
Moon in Aries– strong, energetic, reactive, focused on its own desires and interests, independent, initiating, active, moving.

It is important that the person becomes independent and gets insights that she can provide for herself all that she needs.
