Working With the Moon and Your Moon Sign

Moon ritual (yin energy) is a practice about setting intentions and working with the waning and waxing cycles. Intentions create seeds that need to be nurtured with the magical combination of patience and work. The practice of working with the moon cycles is vital in understanding our desires and how we feel in our bodies. The moon controls our unconscious mind and our emotional being. When we understand how our moon sign may be influencing our lives, we can develop emotional wisdom and we become more aligned with our soul and body.
