An actual daily horoscope prediction is based on the movement of the moon as it is the fastest moving ‘astrological planet’. This is because the moon changes signs every two to two and a half days. The moon is considered the third most important ‘planet’ in an astrology birth chart, after the Sun and the ascendant.
Out of the various planets influencing our lives, it is the moon that has a strong influence on our moods and emotions. It alters an individual’s behaviour. So the Moon’s frequent transits, in turn, changes our moods and emotions from day to day, effecting our work and relationships. We are on our best behaviour and most spirited when we are cooperating with the energy of the moon. These days prove to be lucky, if one plans to start a relationship, go for an interview, apply for a raise etc. The authentic daily horoscopes are based on which house the moon is moving through, for the native’s sign.
Astrologers study the different cycles of the moon while writing the daily horoscope. The cycle of the moon as it goes through the twelve signs of the zodiac has a marked influence on both the individual and his/her environment and so does its cycle from full moon to full moon, which takes approximately 29 and half days to cover. Usually the waxing phases of the moon indicate that things are growing or new beginnings are taking place and the native has more energy than at other times. On the other hand, a waning moon indicates a time of decrease, a time when things will be ending and generally less energy for activities.
