What is a Moon transit?

A Moon transit refers to the passage of the Moon through a specific zodiac sign, influencing the collective emotional landscape and individual experiences. This celestial journey symbolizes an energy shift that centers around our feelings, instincts, and unconscious mind.

Each Moon transit carries unique qualities and influences based on the zodiac sign, shaping our perceptions and behaviors.

As a collective, the astrology of the current Moon sign has a definite influence on the “energetic climate” of the day. You could think of this as a kind of “collective horoscope”. Whilst some people are strongly influenced by lunar transits, others may not feel them at all.

Yet due to the Moon’s continuous orbit of the Earth, she only spends between 1 and 4 days at a time in a single zodiac sign, meaning the effects of the transits change every few days. So alongside the Sun sign, knowing what the current Moon sign is, will help you navigate her waters SO much more smoothly…

Tapping into each transit offers a unique opportunity for personal growth. By understanding the nuances of each Moon transit, we can align with the rhythms of the universe and harness its transformative power in our lives.

What happens when the Moon is transiting Aquarius?

When the Moon transits through Aquarius, there’s a heightened emphasis on embracing individuality and pursuing unconventional paths. This lunar transit also fosters a strong desire for social change and encourages collaboration with like-minded individuals to achieve collective goals.

Aquarius Moon energy often inspires innovative thinking and a break from tradition. It is a time to explore new ideas, challenge the status quo, and cultivate a community around what’s discovered.

With Uranus as its ruling planet, the Moon’s journey through Aquarius invites us to delve into uncharted emotional and intellectual territory. New knowledge and unique ideas often rise into our awareness during this transit, and we are encouraged to spend time exploring entirely new ways of thinking.

As the 11th sign of the zodiac, Aquarius is forward-facing, progressive, and independent. But there is also a strong sense of what’s right for the collective.

Despite often being confused for a water sign (being the water-bearer) Aquarius is an air sign, meaning it pertains to ideas, concepts, thoughts, and inspiration.

It’s thought one of the reasons for this modern misunderstanding, is that our ancestors believed the area of the sky in which Aquarius sits, was known as the heavenly “sea”. Not necessarily water, but an ocean of potential. A vast expanse that contained all possibilities, like the limitless expanse of pure potential that humanity also holds.

But whilst water flows across the surface of the Earth, dripping into every crevice, air rises. Air expands, seeking new spaces to fill, new ideas to explore, new realms to discover…. So like the other air signs (Gemini and Libra) the Moon in Aquarius activates the thinking realms.

Under an Aquarius Moon, we tend to be drawn more to our mental landscapes, than to emotional life. Emotions can kind of get in the way when there’s visioning to be getting on with!

The astrology of this Moon sign reveals the more idealistic sides of our personalities. We are driven by what could be, rather than what is.

Despite being THE sign of the collective, under an Aquarius Moon, individualism rules. This means this bright, expansive lunar energy will encourage you to trust yourself first.

Your thoughts, ideas, viewpoints, ambitions, and goals all matter, and the Aquarius Moon sign reminds us all that our uniqueness makes the world go around. So the Moon in Aquarius is both a celebration of that and an encouragement to push yourself up to your own edges of what feels quirky, kinky and eccentric!

Whatever makes you a little bit weird, the Moon in Aquarius offers permission to let it show!

Counter-intuitively, Aquarius is one of the fixed signs (along with Taurus, Leo, and Scorpio).

This means under this Moon, you could get stuck on an idea or a cause and like a dog with a bone, find it difficult to let go. So be sure you’re acting for the cause, and not for the sake of proving a point or winning a battle…

Innovation and originality 

During the Moon’s transit through Aquarius, the themes of innovation and originality usually take center stage. This Moon sign supports us in exploring new ideas, embracing unconventional approaches to all the challenges of life, and doing a little out-of-the-box thinking.

Aquarius Moon signs are a time to break free from traditional structures and methods, and play around with the very nature of what it is to rebel.

The Moon in Aquarius inspires a spirit of experimentation and a willingness to stand up against whatever is no longer working. Just because life has been a certain way for as long as you can remember… Aquarius knows it doesn’t have to go on.

Personally, this lunar transit invites individuals to tap into their creative potential and slowly open up to fresh ways of looking at things, in the hope this may actually lead to groundbreaking discoveries or solutions!

Social justice, change, and activism

As the humanitarian sign, Aquarius circles around themes of social change and activism. The Aquarius Moon will often bring a heightened awareness of societal issues, as well as a call to action to do something about them!

You’ll likely notice that this Moon sign inspires you to care just a little more deeply about your community and any issues, injustices, or power imbalances pique your curiosity. This Moon sign calls on us to instigate positive change and do what we can to improve the future of friends, acquaintances, and community groups.

An Aquarius Moon also encourages individuals to leverage their voices and resources to effect meaningful change. Whether it looks like participating in grassroots movements, supporting charities, or raising awareness about social issues, the Aquarius Moon sign awakens the inner activist.

Plus… if Aquarius features in your birth chart, and this transit activates any other aspects or points then expect a more passionate interest to be ignited!

Fun fact: Freedom fighters of the world, social justice activists, and those with a revolutionary spirit tend to feature Aquarius Moons in their natal charts… a coincidence?

Individuality and community

Can you keep a hold of your fiercely independent identity AND be collectively minded? The Aquarius Moon sign thinks so…

Under an Aquarius Moon, the delicate balance between celebrating personal uniqueness and fostering a sense of interconnectedness within a community is highlighted.

Aquarius Moons encourage us to embrace our distinct identities, whilst also honoring the diversity of our human perspectives. Inspiring inclusivity, the Aquarius Moon urges ever more strongly, to seek out like-minded individuals who share our goals and values. Despite its need for freedom, this Moon sign fosters a sense of belonging and encourages us to form supportive communities.

Woman's body affected by the Moon transits

The Aquarius Moon body

The different Moon signs are connected to different areas of the body, and when the Moon enters a sign, it will often activate that part of the body. For some, this means an amplification of pain or discomfort, whilst for others it can be an aid to specific, targeted healing.

The Aquarius Moon affects your lower legs and ankles.

This part of your body could suffer if you’re standing a lot today. Or if you already tend to get aches and pains in your lower legs, be careful not to put even more strain on yourself. Make comfy shoes a priority!

But on the upside, anything you can do to strengthen or heal this region will be doubly beneficial.

The Aquarius Moon shadow

Every Moon has her shadow.

Shadows are rejected, distorted, misunderstood, or suppressed (or all of those!) aspects of self.

When the Moon is in Aquarius, the shadow traits that may emerge in people include emotional detachment, rebelliousness for the sake of rebellion, and a tendency to prioritize intellectual pursuits over emotional connections.

The independent and often unconventional nature of Aquarius Moons can also lead to a sense of aloofness and a reluctance to surrender into deep emotional intimacy. This may even lead to a disregard for the feelings of others. During this transit, you may also find yourself challenging authority without considering the consequences. A strong ego combined with the shattering influence of Uranus creates the potential for the shadow side of the freedom seeker to manifest through sabotage.

So it’s vital to balance your intellectual pursuits with emotional awareness around friends, acquaintances and loved ones during this time.

Were you born with your natal Moon in Aquarius?

Does your birth chart reveal an Aquarius Moon? (This is different from your sats sign, or Sun sign, btw). If you were born with your natal Moon in Aquarius, you’re likely someone with a unique emotional landscape full of personality traits characterized by independence, intellectual curiosity, and an idealistic way of viewing the world.

The Moon in Aquarius infuses your emotional nature with a desire for freedom and innovation, and you probably feel pretty stifled if you get stuck in old paradigm thinking.

Aquarius-born people often have a magnetic personality as people are drawn to their intriguing and unconventional forms of emotional expression. Offbeat and alternative knowledge simply oozes from them and they have many friends who want to hear it!

Making friends comes easy to you, too! And your natural inclination towards championing social causes and helping other people means you have many friends and admirers, even if you don’t realize it.

Aquarius Moon sign people need to be mindful of balancing their intellectual pursuits with forming emotional connections. You may not think you need intimacy as much as other zodiac signs. But nurturing your relationships will ultimately lead to creating more of the fulfillment you desire.
