We often wonder how to deal with stress in our lives.
When we experience stress, it means that we have moved away from our needs. We have pushed ourselves too far in the name of a goal, an achievement; in the name of our family, or even defending ourselves in a situation that hurts us.
The more we are connected with our Moon sign, the more we can achieve balance and build an inner space, where stress cannot ‘survive’.
The Moon is associated with our unconscious instincts, our emotions and our sense of security. When we experience stress instinctively, it is as if our sense of security is threatened.
When we work to meet the needs of our Moon sign, it gives us a refuge where we can recharge, rest, and nourish ourselves. The conscious pursuit of our instincts always leads to an improved well-being.
Our instinctive nature is valuable and it has its purpose – to regulate the balance between reason and intuition, work and rest, male active energy and female passive nourishing force.
A well-placed Moon in our natal chart predisposes us to more easily connect with the space within, which wants comfort and security. We develop lunar themes based on what we received in our childhood. Conversely, an afflicted Moon, which fights for human attention because of other planets that “call” it, will find it harder to connect with this mystical side of emotional peace and comfort.
