Moon Wobble  July 6 , 2005

We have just entered into a cycle called “Moon Wobble” on July 1st, 2005. As the name suggests it is a cycle of emotional instability and unsteadiness. The wisdom needed for this cycle is one of consciousness, emotional steadiness, and internal awareness. The possibility of excessive emotionalism, drama and/or fear can be very high during this time.

What exactly is a Moon Wobble?

Moon Wobbles occur when the transiting Sun makes an exact contact with the Lunar (the Moon’s) Nodes. This contact (in astrological terms) is called a conjunction or a square.

How long does it last? The exact date of this Moon Wobble will occur on July 10th, 2:25 AM PST and the center will be at 18 degrees Cancer. Usually, the awareness of the cycle starts about 10 days before the exact configuration then continues for 10 days after. Thus, the cycle started July 1st and will be completed by July 4th. We have about 4-5 Moon Wobbles per year.

What can I do?


The best way to handle this emotionally based cycle is to become a conscious observer. Certainly everyone’s chart will be triggered by this cycle, but how much awareness and consciousness you bring is really the deeper wisdom teaching. Any potentially emotional cycle provides us a reason to access those deeper parts of our being. Those parts of us intuitively remember what to do when we are thrown off of our center.

You may want to think of it like starting a new relationship. There are many things “you can say” during the initial interview period when dating. New relationships can feel somewhat unstable. But sometimes the most centering thing you can do is look inside yourself to see how you really intuitively feel about the person?

Here are some of the things to watch during a Moon Wobble that I have found in my research and experience:

**Things may not always be what they seem. Check things out, and ask questions, even if it seems annoying to the other person. This applies to many things; some of which are buying products, apartment hunting, even dating.

**Practice flexibility during this period. Sometimes things don’t go as planned during this time. Be open to more possibilities.

Finally, emotions can be somewhat irrational during this time. Try to stay centered. Keep out of a reaction mode and simply wait until the cycle is over. You may find that things weren’t really as they seemed and an opening of understanding will be more available to you.

Wisdom Teaching Quote

“God is in the sadness and the laughter,

in the bitter and the sweet.

There is a divine purpose behind everything —

and therefore, a divine presence IN everything.”
