Welcome back to our May Planetary Fishing Trip. Today we’ll examine the Moon and the Moon in your chart. You might want to give today’s playwork a little additional time, if you can spare it, in case any emotions bubble up. You know the Moon’s rep for stirring up feelings!
Do as many of the exercises and/or subparts as you can. Better to do some than none. (You really don’t have to do them all. You can come back to them another time.) There are no right and wrong answers, just observations and sensations to learn from.
Moon Fishing Instructions
a. What do you learn?
b. What pops out as important to you?
c. How do you “worship the Moon” in your own life?
d. What symbol of the Moon is your favorite? Why?2. About your Moon and its sign:
a. Do you resonate to it: more, less or about the same as your Sun sign?
b. Do you feel you embrace your Moon or are feelings, nurturing and things like intuition tricky for you?
c. How do you think the Moon serves you or challenges you in its particular sign?
d. What element is it? (Earth, Air, Fire or Water) What does the element say about your emotional needs?
e. How many planets make a major aspect to your Moon? 
f. How many of the planets are in close aspect, within 3 degrees or less?
g. How do the aspects complicate or support your Moon’s energy and basic mission?
3. Last but importantly, what does your Moon and its position say about your mother or your primary nurturer in your formative years?
Extra Experience: Go out tonight and look at the Moon. Can you see it? If not, comment on how the Moon (feelings) are sometimes hidden. If you can see it, what phase is it in? Look at it for several minutes. What do you feel when you commune with the Moon? Write it down.
That’s it for today’s catch. See you Tuesday when we’ll try to get our hooks into Mercury.
 This is often easiest to find and view in summary in a matrix on the chart wheel page or in one of the “reports” offered, if you have astrology software.
