I’ve created an ebooklet, Mothers, Daughters, and the Moon that is available to my subscribers as a free offering.  It’s a 44-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 inmodaupainting-RbotWalker-Mca-Bethsm-wiki The Moon in your Life, and that’s 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?

  1. What a wonderful offer, Donna. It’s a real treat to be able to have something from an out-of-print book of yours.

  2. Thank you! I am looking forward to reading this – love your posts.

  3. I’m sure I will find this booklet very interesting. My mom’s sun in Libra sits exactly conjunct my moon in the first house. Plus her moon sits in my 12th. Every time you give some interesting quiz or way to look at a chart, I do her chart as well as my own. She, for example is quite Plutonian with 50 points on the quiz (compared to my paltry 17, even if it Pluto is conjunct my sun in Leo), and almost as Uranian as me with 43 points to my 48. It does shine more light on our relationship and help me understand her more. thanks Shelley

  4. Since I signed up for your blog already – I would LOVE to receive a copy of this work! 🙂 Thanks Donna!
