I recently created an ebooklet, Mothers, Daughters, and the Moon for students in a Kepler College of Astrological Arts and Sciences summer course about key relationships. Now I want to make it available to my subscribers as a free offering. It’s a 50-page excerpt from my out of print book, The Moon in your Life, also known as Being a Lunar Type in a Solar World. You’ve seen some excerpts from the book in recent posts--Eclipses and Their Effects, Using the Daily Moon Sign to your Advantage, and The Moon Signs and their Emotional Habits.
In an individual birth chart, the Moon’s sign, house, and aspects describes the mother, your relationship to her, and what kind of parent you become. I explored the topic in a three-chapter arc in The Moon in your Life, and that is the part that is reprinted in this ebooklet. Here’s what they cover:
Chapter 7: Moon Phases, Life Cycles, and Momma’s Little Girl: The mother-daughter bond; the mother and the young girl; the Moon and images of femininity; the mother at the menarche; the mother and the teenage girl; the young adult woman and her mother; daughter becomes mother; mother becomes child–her declining years; lunar eclipse–when Mom wasn’t up to her job; a study in codependency–Liza Minnelli and Judy Garland; Moon after Moon after Moon.
Chapter 8: Healing the Mother Knot: Messages from Mom; the dead letter office; a do-it-yourself momectomy; psychological exercises; astrological exercises; forgiveness–the final frontier.
Chapter 9: The Passage into Parenthood: The Aquarian Moon and parenting options; birthing under the Aquarian Moon; breasts, breastfeeding and mother love; matrescence–the process of becoming a mother; what about fatherhood; using the Cancer rising wheel to avoid parental burnout; Moon sign readings–what kind of parent would you be?
