Moon in House One

In astrology, the Moon represents the quality of our subconscious desires and impressions. Our reactions and inner feelings. What makes us comfortable and uncomfortable and emotionally fulfilled. It also points to the past, childhood, maternity and all the psychic baggage accumulated throughout our lives that can haunt us and sabotage our happiness.

The first house in astrology is the house of Self and concerns our self image, appearance, how people see us, and how we approach life in general. The first house is regarded as the entry point and lens through which the rest of the chart should be evaluated. Regardless of what the rising sign happens to be, the presence of the moon in the 1st house indicates that there are a number of feminine elements among other things that factor into the overall persona.

Moon in 1st House Transit

When the moon transits through the 1st house, certain insecurities and memories are bound to resurface. The mood is likely to be introspective and there may be a desire to reflect on yourself or reconnect with something or someone once close to you. The softer, more feminine aspects of your personality are highlighted and you are more receptive to others but also more sensitive as well. You feel more in touch with yourself and may also feel better able to express yourself in a manner that others are more receptive to. Logic and objectivity are somewhat hampered as your perceptions may be somewhat clouded by what you are feeling moment to moment.

Additionally, as the Moon transits through the first house, it may be hard to conceal your emotions and so it is probably not a good time to play poker. Your thoughts and feelings will be easy to read by others from your face and body language despite how inscrutable you think you are. You have good instincts about people and you’re able to adjust yourself on the fly according to the tone and tenor of the people around you. Bonds with your mother and females in general are likely to be very good at this time. You’re able to assert yourself with sensitivity and confidence and express what you really feel without the need to tiptoe or go out of your way to avoid offending others.

The Moon is in the 1st House. When you deal with a person whom you do not know, or when you are facing a new situation, you try above all to adjust. You absorb external parameters in order to blend into the environment and feel safe as if you were at home. Adaptation is mainly a matter of sensitivity. If the contact is good, everything is fine. But should outside issues disturb your tranquility and your need for well-being, then, you cut off your lines of communication.
