Day: November 19, 2021
If there’s one thing that we know to be true, it’s that everyone’s different — including how we work, play, and, yes, even slack off.
Astrology has been a guide to deeper self-exploration and understanding long before we stepped foot onto this planet, and it equally can be a helpful guide in seeing how our styles of work differ from one another.
Today we’ll deep dive into the zodiac signs that may have a harder time pulling together the strength necessary to get that pesky responsibility done or balk at the sight of a long to-do list.
Which zodiac signs are the laziest? Time to find out!
“Laziness” in Astrology 101
As much as we like to simplify, nothing is black-and-white or as easy-breezy as a simple “lazy” or “not lazy” label, even in astrology (where we do love a good category).
However, there are multiple ways that you can identify how you work within your natal chart, like seeing what signs or planets are inhabiting your 6th house, for example. Or, you could also take a look at your Mars sign to see how you express things like drive, motivation, and ambition.
In other words, there’s clearly a lot to unpack when it comes to understanding how you work. At the end of the day, however, some zodiac signs are more equipped than others to handle something like a standard 9-5 or fit into the routines, systems, and structures that we abide by in the 21st century.
And yes, we may perceive that as laziness… or, depending on your perspective, perhaps a unique quality of rebellion!

Ranking the Signs Based on Laziness
While all zodiac signs share their own strengths and weaknesses, some do not tend to shine in the midst of a heavy workload (or at least, could use a different motivator).
Here are the zodiac signs ranked from most to least “lazy.”
Before the bright-minded Sagittarian spirits out there protest, the wild archer being at the top of the list comes with one caveat: Sagittarius does not work unless they truly wish to.
It’s not that Sagittarius lacks the backbone to persevere through a difficult task, but they often will roll their eyes at a lengthy to-do list or overly complicated process that gets boring quickly. If it’s not interesting, they’re not interested.
Sagittarius loves to learn and wander and roam, but they don’t love being tied down unnecessarily. If you want them to work for you, make the job spark their curiosity — or watch it go unfinished.
There are a variety of positive claims to the Pisces name. But “slow and steady hard worker?” Not usually one of them.
Unpredictable and flexible, Pisces adheres well to the Mutable quality. In the element of Water, this flexibility is more emotional and intuitive in nature and less focused on what’s right in front of them.
While Pisces can rush to your aid in a time of emotional need at the drop of a hat, they may be less inclined to sit in one spot and file through a block of paperwork… and without daydreaming? That’s a hefty goal.
Taurus often gets quite the reputation for being lazy or stubborn, but why is that?
Although Taurus is a Fixed sign and an Earth sign and can readily keep its eye on just one goal of interest for a long period of time, the steady bull does not rush on its way there.
Like Sagittarius, a Taurus is also prone to reject doing work they see as unnecessary. However, unlike Sagittarius, it’s more likely that this is due to already having an established routine that they don’t wish to interrupt.
Plus, being Venus-ruled, a Taurus knows how to stop, smell the roses, and enjoy the finer things in life. You want them to halt their luxurious skincare routine for a last-minute project? Better call on a spontaneous Fire sign instead.

Like Taurus, Libra is Venus-ruled and appreciates the finer things that life has to offer.
Now, does this mean Libra is ready to kick back, relax, and fully let work pass them by? Not quite — as a Cardinal sign, Libra does know that there is a time and a place to take the lead.
But as a charismatic and bubbly personality, Libra is more than capable of using charm and wit to get someone else to do the dirtier work for them. And if they don’t have to get their hands dirty to enjoy the garden, there may be little stopping them from taking advantage.
Aquarius, the humanitarian of the zodiac, usually has big plans and ideas that they’d like to see take place in the world.
As big as those plans are, however, sometimes this idealistic Air sign is more prone to biting off more than they can chew.
Rebellious and progressive, they may also go against the grain from time to time and dislike the current methods of the moment, leading to perceived laziness to the outside eye.
Gemini is a bit of a hit or a miss when it comes to their desire to put pen to paper or charge ahead at a heavy workload.
Curious and intellectual, it’s no doubt that this sign has a knack for problem-solving, being an integral part of a brainstorming team, or asking the right questions to get an important job done.
On the other hand, Geminis are also known for their Mutability, or, in other words, unpredictability. They may just catch sight of something shinier and more interesting, and their once-loved work project is already out of sight, left in the dust.
Ruled by Mars itself, you would certainly expect some drive from the competitive ram.
While Aries is loyal once they’ve really committed to someone or something, determined to see the path through, they are also prone to moving too fast too soon — and quickly burning themselves out in the process.
Although the ram may love devoting their energy to work that they care about, they’ll also have to remember to balance out that excitable spirit in order to make it last.
Born to take center-stage, Leo has a bit of a reputation for not being as much of a team player — but you’d be surprised at their work ethic once you hook them on the right project!
Leo is a Fixed sign like Taurus, usually keeping their eye on one goal or idea at a time. But as a fire sign, they also contain the spark, passion, and enthusiasm that can be necessary to give them the right amount of fuel.
Should you get a lion to put their eye on your job or project, you’ll have a loyal companion who desires just as much to put their work onto the map.
Whether in work or in love, Cancer knows how to do one thing very well: care deeply.
As a Cardinal sign, the crab is actually the leader of the Water signs, which may seem surprising given their soft-spoken and sometimes shy presence.
However, they’re often the ones facilitating a lot of the work you never see behind the scenes, and they’re easily the puppetmaster pulling strings behind the curtain when you’re busy enjoying the show.
This sweet sign will put their everything into something that they care about, especially if their work environment is full of people that they adore.
If there’s one stereotype you’ve heard about Virgo, it’s that they’re hard-working sometimes to a fault, earning them the “perfectionist” title.
Virgos are Mutable like Sagittarius and Gemini, making them adaptable and appreciative of having multiple angles to one problem or several hands to juggle different projects.
At the same time, they’re an Earth sign, placing their adaptability in all things tangible and physical — so, yes, they’re a fantastic detail-oriented set of eyes to have on any workforce.
Mars-ruled with a Fixed modality, Scorpio is a sign to be reckoned with when their eyes are set on a goal.
This fierce and passionate sign doesn’t just work hard, but they’ll be working hard with a ferocity and intensity that you will never quite see be matched by anyone else.
And especially if you’re witnessing their work in a field that they love, expect them to go to depths that weren’t even asked of them.
It is perhaps unsurprising that Capricorn, the wise old goat, has landed themselves as the least lazy of the zodiac.
Sometimes to a fault, Capricorn is known for their serious and steadfast gaze, always with their mind on the responsible choice and their hands already on deck to solve the next issue.
Capricorn is Saturn-ruled, so they’ve had to learn how to be responsible throughout the course of their life thanks to the planet of karma and discipline.
So, unsurprisingly, “lazy” is not one word you could use to describe them.
Lazy or Leader?
Remember: even if you don’t adhere to the definition of “hard-working” we’ve set in our present time, there may come a day where your other unique qualities, gifts, and attributes associated with your zodiac sign come to shine in the spotlight.
Perhaps in our modern-day, your working style is considered laziness, but we may be decades away from seeing your sign as the next pioneer or leader of how we should be operating!
Astrology reminds us that those unique qualities can be areas of difficulty but that sometimes our struggles are also what makes us shine!

When it comes to Court Cards, some readers find it a little tricky to understand them. This is because Court Cards (which consist of Kings, Queens, Knights, and Pages) can represent an actual person or a situation—or even both. It is up to the reader to decipher what the Court Cards mean in each individual spread.
To keep things simple, let’s imagine that each Court Card plays its own significant role, something like the following:
- The Pages are the students who are just starting out. They are at the beginning stage.
- The Knights have been studying their craft for a long time and are ready to apply what they have learned to the real world.
- The Queens have mastered their craft, and they use their knowledge on an internal basis which includes embracing creativity and nurturing their families.
- The Kings have mastered their craft, and they use their knowledge on an external basis, which includes building businesses in the real world and providing for their families.
Each Page is on a journey to become a King or a Queen. Pages also represent messages, and the messages depend on their suit.

The energy of the Full Moon and Lunar eclipse can be felt four about 48 hours before and after the transit takes place, meaning that revelations and unearthed emotions are possible all week long. Pay attention to these feelings, acknowledge them, and release them from your spirit.

Your 2021 Taurus Lunar Eclipse Ritual
The lunar nodes bring a fated energy to an eclipse, which lasts months after the actual eclipse date. At this time, using a Lunar eclipse ritual to connect with ourselves and the Moon is a great way to harness the power of the skies.
Here’s a ritual to help all zodiac signs deal with anxiety and mental unrest this eclipse season.
Step 1: Introspection
Taurus being an Earth sign puts a spotlight on matters of security and stability. On the days leading up to the eclipse, take some time out to go within.
Ask yourself – “What are the themes that are currently playing out in my life this Scorpio month?”
In addition to material security, astrologically speaking, what other aspects of your life are being impacted by this Lunar eclipse? Journal your thoughts and set intentions for what or who you’d like to “eclipse” out of your life.
Step 2: Shamanic Drumming Sound Bath
Shamanic drumming has an incredible effect on our energy field, particularly on our Root chakra. What’s more, the earthy low pitch beats aptly represent the Earth sign of Taurus.
Start your eclipse day morning with shamanic drumming beats.
For 20 minutes, visualize the sound beats penetrating every cell in your body and renewing it with high-frequency energy. Add in any affirmations which remind you of your innate power.
This gives an instant mood boost and sets the tone for navigating eclipse day and any unexpected sudden changes. You might also burn sage, Palo Santo, or Frankincense to enhance this ritual.
Step 3: Ritual Moon-Water Bath
What on Earth is a Moon-water bath?
A Moon-water bath is an immensely effective way to harness the power of the Moon and release negativity from your life. While for most signs, this is a potent way to cleanse your energy field, Earth and Water signs can find tremendous benefit from this ritual.
Preparing Moon Water
- Leave a pail of regular tap water overnight out in the moonlight, a few days before the eclipse.
- Place a crystal or two—try using amethyst, rose quartz, selenite, or clear quartz—next to the pail of water.
- Add an intention to this practice.
The Moon Bath
On the evening of the eclipse, set the mood for spiritual self-care with candles and incense sticks, and your charged crystals.
Clear your energy field and step into your Moon bath.
Visualize this Moon water to help you release fears and limiting beliefs from within your subconscious. Ask yourself: What is preventing me from becoming the best version of myself?
Finally, end your bath by visualizing your mind, body, and soul being supercharged with transformational positive vibes.
We recommend you repeat this three-step ritual for a week after the eclipse if needed.
Tune into Your Soul Lessons with This Lunar Eclipse Ritual
Rituals can feel overwhelming if you are new to spirituality. In truth, they really are about mindfully slowing down and honoring our journey. We hope this three-step Lunar eclipse ritual helps you channel this eclipse energy and fearlessly step into a new version of yourself.

About The Sagittarius Zodiac Sign
The wanderer with a heart of gold, Sagittarius may not seem like an easy zodiac sign to pin down and fully understand.
Sagittarius holds true to many of the core traits of any Fire sign, being bold, spontaneous, spunky, and full of adventure (and perhaps a little mischief). Being the Mutable sign of the fiery bunch, Sagittarius is all the more unpredictable and dislikes sticking with one thing for very long.
Perhaps if it weren’t for the influence of lucky and expansive Jupiter, we might see Sagittarius in a more chaotic or intense light. But this planet of growth and open-mindedness ruling the archer keeps Sagittarian energy feeling light, enthusiastic, and ready for anything!

The Impact Of Sagittarius Season
Like all other zodiac seasons, you’ll be experiencing Sagittarius’s influence on the Sun for a whole month (from November 21st until December 20th, when the Sun moves into steadfast Capricorn).
Where will you see its influence? Well, you’ll have to take a closer look at your birth chart to see what is getting truly highlighted. It’s a lot easier than it may seem, so don’t fret if you’re not so sure!
Sagittarius in the Birth Chart: Planets
First, check to see where Sagittarius lands in the planets of your birth chart, with these placements having a major impact on core pieces of your personality and who you are as a person!
Sun Sign, Moon Sign & Rising Sign In Sagittarius
With any of these placements in your chart, you’ll notice the energy of Sagittarius come up quite prominently for you in many aspects of life.
For instance, the Sun, representing the ego and a core piece of the self, places the adventurous archer’s energy in many places of your life, including what you wish to put forth into the world.
The Moon, governing emotion and your inner world, allows you to connect with Sagittarius in the emotional space (which can feel fiery, unpredictable, and curious with this sign). And finally, with a Sagittarius Rising, the traits are projected outwards, making it a noticeable part of who you are to others around you.
Mercury In Sagittarius
If you have a Sagittarius Mercury, your archer energy comes through most in how you communicate and share information.
This placement is actually in detriment, which may seem strange for such an outgoing and curious sign. However, Sagittarius always has much to say and do but never seems to have enough time to fully articulate what is happening in their big, bright minds.
With this placement, it may feel like your communication doesn’t even always do you justice and that there’s always a more philosophical discussion to be had.
Venus In Sagittarius
More than anything, you crave adventure, excitement, and growth within this area of your life. You may find it hard to settle down, but the key to solving this dilemma is actually quite simple and comes down to finding connections with people that want to grow and change as much as you do!
Mars In Sagittarius
Mars, planet of war, ambitions, and will, shows us, as you may expect, how we express our ambitions and goals.
With Mars in Sagittarius, you are undeniably full of spark and life but may wish to take on too much at once, or sometimes experience intense ebbs and flows of not wanting to do anything at all — and then the next day, you’re off on your next adventure!
Unpredictable and thrill-seeking, it’s this spontaneity and excitement that also keeps this placement special and a force of change for the world.
Jupiter In Sagittarius
Sitting pretty in its home planet, Jupiter in Sagittarius is domicile — AKA, super comfy in this placement.
Jupiter shows us how we expand, grow, and broaden our horizons, sometimes by unpredictable or strange means. Sagittarius equally extends its arms in that direction no matter what, so the two are a match made in heaven.
When you embrace adventure and wander on the side of the unknown, you’re more likely to succeed in all that you do with this lucky placement.
Saturn In Sagittarius
The sight of Saturn in your birth chart isn’t always pretty, as it’s the planet of restrictions, karma, and discipline. It restricts whatever it touches.
So it may seem like freedom-loving Sagittarius is a mismatch for Saturn, and from time to time, you certainly will wrestle with intense themes of freedom vs. restraint in your life with this placement.
Still, both energies adhere to what they feel is right at their core, having a strong sense of ethics and identity. So aligning with that can make this placement a powerful one, too.
Uranus In Sagittarius
Most people born in the ’80s will have Uranus in Sagittarius, being the older end of the millennial generation.
Uranus, the planet of rebellion and change, loves the freedom-loving and adventurous spirit of Sagittarius. We can see this in how many within the millennial generation have opted for change and renewal in making waves throughout society.
Neptune In Sagittarius
Throughout the ’70s and mid-’80s, Neptune in Sagittarius transited the skies and made the archer’s mark on babies being born at the time.
This planet of dreams, illusions, and intuition linking up with the adventurous archer made plenty of sense for children born into a time of ‘70s hippies and waves of rebellion and change.
Pluto In Sagittarius
With Pluto in Sagittarius in the charts of those born between the mid-’90s and late 2000s, we’ve finally made our way into seeing Generation Z’s astrological imprints.
The planet of change and intense transformation meets the Sagittarian open-mindedness and love for freedom in a profound mix of rebellion and shift in ideas.
Called “rebels with a cause” as early as the early 2010s, when many were still children, we have yet to see the mark they’ll be making with this powerful placement.
Chiron In Sagittarius
Chiron shows us where we hold some of the deepest wounds.
With Chiron in Sagittarius, the wounds are felt in areas where you were restricted, not allowed to express yourself freely, or made to feel like your growth, expansion, or sense of luck and whimsy were not valuable assets.
Sagittarius In the Birth Chart: The Astrological Houses
Even if you have no planets in Sagittarius, you can still see where the energy of Sagittarius lands in your chart through your houses!
One of your natal houses should fall in Sagittarius—depending on the house system, some may have more than one, and some may have none.
Sagittarius In The 1st House
If your 1st house is in Sagittarius, the qualities of this passionate and eccentric sign are projected outwards.
So even if you feel like you land on the more introverted side of the outgoing spectrum, others may still seem to perceive you as spontaneous, adventurous, and leading the next big idea or conversation.
Sagittarius In The 2nd House
If your 2nd house is in Sagittarius, you may notice that money finds you when you least expect it or comes in unpredictable flows.
Everything the wild archer touches comes with a flair of whimsy, adventure, and unpredictability, so the 2nd house in Sagittarius is best experienced with that open-mindedness and go-with-the-flow spirit the archer is known for.
Sagittarius In The 3rd House
If your 3rd house is in Sagittarius, you’ll find its qualities highlighted in how you communicate with others.
The 3rd house is the house of communication amongst some other things (like siblings), which places some of Sagittarius’ outgoing and eccentric qualities in a particularly open space.
Even if your flow of internal thought and feelings doesn’t always seem to come with a fiery flair, it may seem like your words roll out that way nonetheless!
Sagittarius In The 4th House
If your 4th house is in Sagittarius, your foundations and sense of home will be structured around Sagittarius qualities.
This may create a tendency to create “home” in foreign places, or not wholly resonate with the idea of traditional home and family structures. A love of traveling or living abroad might spur from this placement in particular.
Sagittarius In The 5th House
If your 5th house is in Sagittarius, the qualities of the archer can come out in love and with your hobbies.
Your love for philosophy, spiritual topics, and branching out into unknown territory may take heavy priority and emphasis in your hobbies, studies, and personal leisure. You may even feel compelled to take center stage with these pursuits and share your knowledge with others!
Sagittarius In The 6th House
If your 6th house is in Sagittarius, you assist and help others with its wandering, open-minded spirit.
Your spiritual knowledge and pursuits, for example, may be of particular importance in how you spread light in the world. Others may look to you as a beacon of insight and guidance.
Sagittarius In the 7th House
The 7th house in astrology rules over partnerships and shows us how we intimately connect with others in a one-on-one space.
As such, a Sagittarius in 7th house placement requires growth and adventure in their connections with others and looks for other peers with similar aspirations or at least ones that can expand their horizons too.
Sagittarius In The 8th House
With the 8th house in Sagittarius, you may find that topics like religion, the occult, or taboo, strange themes in life are what grant you a sense of adventure.
Because the 8th house is a place of the hidden (including hidden finances, like inheritances and wealth), you strive to understand, dig deep, and prod into the depths of the human psyche, experience, and life.
The complexities of human nature are truly fascinating to a Sagittarian 8th houser, and it’s here that you find a sense of liberation.
Sagittarius In The 9th House
If your 9th house is in Sagittarius, you’ll find its qualities especially highlighted, as this is the archer’s native house!
Travel, exploring different philosophies, and venturing outside of traditional home turf is a must for this placement. Spiritual questions will be pondered, and new lands will be unearthed.
Embrace the love of learning and exploration of new places, and this placement will reward you!
Sagittarius In The 10th House
If your 10th house is in Sagittarius, the qualities of the archer take over in your career.
Others might expect you to teach, have all the answers (or questions), and be open about sharing your philosophical and spiritual wisdom with the world.
Whether or not you’re in an untraditional career field, you may also find that you end up being a trailblazer or questioning why things are the way they are in your workplace.
Sagittarius In The 11th House
With the worldly 11th house ruling over friendships and community, Sagittarius in this house thrives when surrounded by those that challenge their beliefs (or will at least engage with them about their own).
For those with this placement, the community is about growth and change, and you’ll likely seek others that are equally open-minded about being changemakers and adventurers in the world.
Sagittarius In The 12th House
With the 12th house holding illusions, mysteries, and the subconscious, Sagittarius being housed here opens you up to some of the philosophical or foreign mysteries you never knew existed.
Passionate teachers full of optimism and curiosity, this placement can be a powerful beacon of insight. On the flip side, you’ll need to learn how to channel this eccentric energy to get there — lest you risk getting lost in all the abundant questions your mind seems to run wild with.
Wandering With the Sagittarian Spirit
No matter where Sagittarius lands in your birth chart, it adds a bit of a wandering, unpredictable, and fiery spirit to that planet or house.
Maybe you’re typically the down-to-Earth friend, and the sight of this strange sign is making you question how you should be channeling your inner adventurer. Or maybe you’ve known you’re a bit of a trailblazer all your life, and seeing the archer in your chart helps clarify where you can place that energy effectively.
Either way, if you’re a Sagittarius (or a Sag Moon/Ascendant), follow your daily horoscope.

Your menstrual cycle and the Moon definitely have one thing in common—they both follow 28-day cycles. Yet, does this mean that the Moon plays a part in your menstrual cycle? And if so, how?
Before the internet and phone apps became regular occurrences in our lives, the cycle of the Moon was followed more closely, offering ways to track and measure certain times of the year and more. More specifically, those that lived close to the water used the Moon to track tidal changes.
At the same time, there are tons of interesting similarities between the menstrual cycle and the Moon.
So, let’s dive a little deeper into this relationship—what meaning can we infer from the Moon phases and the menstrual cycle, and what should you know?
The Menstrual Cycle Moon Connection
The truth is that the research is mixed. Some studies show that there is no link. Yet, there’s almost just as much research indicating there might be a link.
In one study, researchers showed how some women’s cycles synced up with the Moon and even with the Moon’s gravitational pull. Other research showed how a large proportion of menstruation happened at the time or around the Full Moon.
Then, other longer, more intensive studies have noted zero links. So, what’s the deal with the Full Moon and the menstrual cycle? What is going on here? Is there some sort of association?
The truth is it really depends on what you believe. Some believers hypothesize that the following is how your menstrual cycle and the Moon sync up.
The Waxing Moon
The Follicular Phase
The follicular phase is the longest part of the menstrual cycle.
During this time, the ovaries are producing follicles (and mature eggs). The uterus lining is thickening as estrogen increases. Basically, your body is preparing for ovulation and, potentially, pregnancy.
Interestingly, the Waxing Moon phase has a focus on “expansion” (similar to the idea of pregnancy). In fact, this time offers the perfect space to pursue your dreams and expand your horizons in terms of goals and friendships.
The Full Moon
The Ovulatory Phase
Ovulation occurs around days 13-15 of your menstrual cycle. Estrogen and progesterone levels rise. Similar to how many women experience their peak energy during this time, the Full Moon is considered to be at its peak energy.
This marks a powerful time, both in regards to your period and the Moon cycle. It’s a good time to let go of what doesn’t serve you and re-focus on what will bring abundance into your life.

The Waning Moon
The Luteal Phase
After ovulation, your body enters the luteal phase.
This lasts about 14 days unless fertilization of the egg occurs. In that case, pregnancy happens. During this time, the follicle that released the egg goes on to produce progesterone.
This signifies a resilient time.
Yet, as the end of this phase approaches, you might notice your energy begin to decrease, similar to that of the Waning Moon. This indicates it’s time to rest. If your menstrual cycle and the Moon sync up here, self-care takes on an even more important meaning as you attempt to balance the energies of the surrounding world and yourself.
Try gentle stretching, baths, naps, and any other practices that feel soothing and bring peace and calm into your life.
The New Moon
The Menstrual Phase
These two phases go hand-in-hand. The New Moon signifies the beginning of a new phase. It’s all about starting fresh and preparing yourself for a new beginning. As you can likely already tell, this goes right in line with the menstrual cycle.
During the menstrual phase, the body is getting ready for a second shot at a fresh life (quite literally). It’s flushing out the old uterine lining and preparing for another new beginning.
In the midst of transitional moments in life, it’s always important to take time to yourself. Listen to your body. Note how you feel and follow those feelings.

Identifying Your Menstrual Cycle & Moon Connection
Ideally, you want these two cycles to work together. The only way to start doing this is by examining the Moon cycle and determining where your cycle falls in it. Even if you don’t fully align with the above, the energies associated with each Moon cycle might offer insight into how you feel during each phase.
For example, some women might start menstruation with the Full Moon. Thus, this time is best to let go and re-focus on your pursuits.
Were the Moon Phase & Menstrual Cycle Previously Aligned?
Here’s the thing, though: in-depth research on the topic wasn’t exactly explored before technology. In fact, women’s health and cycles weren’t a huge focus in scientific or medical communities.
Many researchers actually hypothesize that the human reproductive cycle was likely more aligned with the Moon. Yet, due to modern lifestyles, artificial light, technology, and more, this relationship isn’t as prominent as it used to be.
It’s similar to the circadian rhythm.
At a time before technology, humans functioned in sync with the Sun. With artificial lights and screens, it’s safe to say we don’t do this as much anymore. We do on some level, but not to the extent it used to be.
While this isn’t necessarily a problem, it does put us out of touch when it comes to the energies of the world, including the Moon cycle.
An easy way to get back in touch is by monitoring and recording it all. Do you have a New Moon menstrual cycle? What is the connection between certain Moon phases and your menstrual cycle?
You might consider tracking it to find out!
Use the Moon Cycle as Your Guide
The Moon can offer a window into your energy levels and where you should focus your energy toward. Unseen energies and connections are all around us. Sometimes, we just don’t notice them and need them to be pointed out.
So, start pointing them out. Find those hidden meanings and use them to your advantage.

How to Calculate Your Personal Month Number
While every number holds meaning in numerology, the Personal Month number can give you insight into how this month will turn out for you. And while your Personal Month number might be a bit different from your Life Path number, it’s actually quite easy to calculate. To get your Personal Month number, all you need to do is add your Personal Year number to the current month number and reduce it down.
Your Personal Year number is simply your birth date, your birth month, and the current year added and reduced.
For instance, if your Personal Year number is 9, you would add that to 12 for the month of December:
9 + 1 + 2 = 12
From there, we reduce 12 to a single number by adding up the digits:
1 + 2 = 3
If your Personal Year number is 9, your Personal Month number for December will be 3!
