This technique can also be used for planning your life ahead. It reminds us that everything has its time and there is no reason to hurry.

In this article, you can read about the progressed Moon in signs. The themes of its house and sign almost always play out in your life during the 2,5 year period the Moon spends in the same sign in the progressed chart.
The Moon is extremely important in astrology: this luminary governs your emotions, unconscious, needs, nurturing style. The Moon is your inner world, hidden from the external world to some extent, but an integral part of your personality. Because of this, the Moon’s position in any kind of chart is super important in astrology. In the progressed chart, the Moon shows the key themes of your life and greater-than-usual emotional needs in the next few years.
What Is the Progressed Moon in Astrology?
Secondary progressions are one of the most widely-used predictive techniques in astrology. This method is based on the movement of planets after the moment of your birth. Every day from this point corresponds to one year of life in the future. The planetary positions in the sky on the next day after your birth describe your first year. The position of the planets on the second day corresponds to your second year, and so on.
As you can see, the inner planets are what’s really important here. Outer planets move slowly, and their position in the Zodiac stays the same for a long time. They are not of much significance here.
However, the inner planets and luminaries are completely different. Some are quicker-moving, some are more unhurried, but they all make a significant journey in a few weeks’ time. Here, the three months after your birth are of significance, as the average human lifetime is below 100 years.
When a progressed planets shifts into the next sign, this indicates a new chapter of your personal development journey. It brings new life areas into focus, asking you to grow and embrace new experiences. As the planet progresses, it forms new aspects too, introducing you to new energy dynamics.
It’s important that you should always read a progressed chart in light of the natal chart. How you experience these “new” energies depends on the natal planetary pattern, the one you were born with. For example, let’s say you have your natal Venus in Gemini in the fourth house. The progressed Moon is at the final degrees of Taurus. When it moves into Gemini, it sooner or later comes to the degree of your natal Venus, and for you, this period is colored with the themes of Venus as well. Someone else who has, for instance, their natal Saturn here, has a completely different experience.
The house where the progression is happening is just as significant as the zodiac sign. You should combine the meaning of both when interpreting. For example, the progressed Moon in Scorpio in 10th house might indicate dramatic changes in your career that induce a deep transformational process in you. These two energies are somewhat conflicting, as Scorpio wants security but when you put yourself out there, life can throw at you anything really. How comfortable the Moon feels in a sign depends on how compatible this sign is with the themes of the house.
How Long Is a Progressed Moon Cycle?
It’s pretty long: 27 and a half years.
The Moon is the fastest celestial body in astrology. It finishes a whole circle through the Zodiac in just 27,5 days. Using the day-for-a-year formula, each day after your birth corresponds to one year of life, so the first progressed Moon return occurs at 27.
You experience the progressed Moon in signs differently based on your birth chart. If you have natal planets in a sign the progressed Moon visits, their energy colors your experience too. The phase of the lunation cycle is important too.
The time when your progressed Moon hits your natal Moon is really exciting. This happens once in 27 years, and it marks the end of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one. This is a time of turbulent changes: you are supposed to let go of the past and focus your energy on the coming time.
