Emotional state of people and the appropriateness of different kinds of activities over the periods of the Moon in individual Zodiac signs.
ARIES: People are governed by the spirit of enthusiasm and energy and overwhelmed by ambitious aspirations, which are often selfish and aggressive. Aggressiveness increases when the Full Moon is in the sign of Aries. Actions are based on impulse rather than reason. Ostentatious display of feelings is typical of this period. With all the desire to burst out in storms and onslaughts, you should remember the feelings of others and respect them, avoid temperamental outbreaks such as "that's what I am," and moderate your selfishness. Try not to start disputes. During this period, the risk of head injury is rather high. It is not advisable to have your teeth pulled out, undergo plastic operations, or squeeze pimples on your face.
This period is good for all tasks which can and should be settled quickly. It is favorable for taking measures related to industry, technology, iron, fire, machinery and tools, as well as chemicals.

TAURUS: Materialistic disposition, inclination to stability, permanence is dominant at this time. Increased stubbornness is also typical. Strong need for financial and material reliability is an important motivation.

Increased lightheadedness, inclination to ill-considered decisions and statements are typical. At this time, following parts of the body are in danger: clavicle (hands broken easily), lungs (cold!) and nervous system (do not overload; when you are irritated, you need to drink calming herbal infusions - valerian, motherwort, calendula).

You have to be more cautious with heavy traffic on the highways and while dealing with firearms or explosives.
SCORPIO: People are overwhelmed with short-term anxieties; they are overexcited and ready to start arguments. This is the season of strong passions and desires (it is not accidental that the Moon in this period is caught mad). People are more active now than in other periods; they are aggressive, critical, moody, and especially prone to getting hurt, both by real and imaginary causes, especially when they are drunk. Avoid complications, and do not succumb to jealousy. Do not provide reasons to it either.

This time is good for planning, meeting respectable people, and establishing your own respectful image. Giving lectures and presentations and manifesting your competence in any other way works out well in this period.

SAGITTARIUS: Passing through the sign of Sagittarius, the Moon provides people with an idealistic attitude, disposition to philosophize, sensitivity to success, the desire to manifest their competence. People are concerned about ideological issues; show increased religious fervor, increased mobility, restlessness, the desire to take up sports, to go somewhere, the thirst for adventures, poorly tolerating any restrictions (especially children). As a rule, people are friendly and openhearted, easy to get involved, enthusiastic – at the same time, this enthusiasm is short-lived and superficial. Increased intuition and extreme sensitivity of the nervous system makes some people capable of prophecy. Almost everyone will try to convince you of something. Your hip joint is the most vulnerable (learn to fall correctly!).

Operations on the sacrum and hips may often entail complications. Inflammation of leg veins is possible, especially in case of women.
CAPRICORN: Thoughts are directed to the practical side of life, but if a person does not see immediate results, he loses patience and makes mistakes. People are especially concerned about everyday problems; they are anxious about their work, and do not take risks in business. They feel under pressure to maintain their prestige and honor and save an impeccable reputation. The slogan of these days should be moderation, calmness, and order. Frivolity and unusual behavior are not universally condemned these days. Sometimes people have excessive ambition combined with the hunt for money. In children, there is a desire to stay with adults and listen to them talk: do not forbid them doing so, because this is how they grow more intelligent. Education is a struggle; new knowledge is acquired slowly but surely; the science and history are learnt especially easily. The spiritual and intellectual interests in the minds of people are pushed to the background. You should avoid heavy food which is hard to digest. In sports, especially skiing, take care of your knees. It is recommended to take preventive measures against rheumatism.

AQUARIUS: The slogan of this period should be the Russian saying “measure seven times before cutting once”. Rich imagination and sophisticated ideas are not the best in this period. The extremes of optimism and pessimism and the lack of realistic approach are typical of this period of time. Significant miscalculations leading to serious in career or business activity may happen. People in this time are prone to self-deception and easily succumb to limelight. You should carefully follow the real facts, not letting the imagination take over. Think twice before you speak. Friendship is important. Women in this period are more realistic than men – it is sensible to listen to their advice, especially to that of mothers.
This time is good for public affairs and innovative initiatives that will develop rapidly. It is excellent for intellectual and spiritual activities, attending meetings, organizing celebrations or anniversaries, for everything related to technical progress or scientific research, as well as gardening. Purchases of electrical and gas equipment, electronics, apartments, moving, borrowing money, advertising, redecoration, constructing roofs and fences will all work out well. Becoming a member of societies or clubs, starting a diet to lose weight, filling teeth, having prosthetics done, and entertainment will be successful. This time is bad for planting and transplanting vegetables and other plants, for excessive confidential talks with friends (they will not keep your secret confidential, and disclosed information can be against you), for letter exchange, or communication with management. During this period, minor disappointments in people are probable. You should be cautious when dealing with electricity, gas tanks, or poisonous substances. Neurological surgeries and surgeries on eyes, varicose nodes, the tibia, and ankles are contraindicated.
PISCES: This is the period, anxiety, vague fears, and insecurity rise. At the same time, memory is sharpening and intuition and clairvoyance burst. It is bad time for intrigues, secret conspiracies and secret strategies – everything comes up to surface. People discover talents in themselves of which they have never ever dreamt. New and unexpected solutions for old problems come up. Interesting and new discoveries in the field of religion and philosophy are also possible.

Operations on seat or fingers are not advised. Caution is required when using psychotropic drugs.
Cycle of Phases of the Moon
This cycle repeats the four seasons: the New Moon – the peak of winter and the "hibernation" of our biorhythms; First Quarter – the middle of spring; the Full Moon - the top of summer; the Last Quarter – Indian summer. Accordingly, during the period of the growing Moon (from the New Moon to the Full Moon) our biological activity rises. It is worth to schedule for this period those activities which require the greatest physical and intellectual effort. The period of the waning Moon (autumn and winter) is the best time to pick the fruits of the active period of the growing Moon. Nothing essential should be scheduled for this time; it is better to create order in the hinterland, arrange documentation, and plan the future. The New Moon is a critical moment when the body is weakened and suffers greatly from overloading. At this time, it is very easy to contract a disease, sexually transmitted diseases included. At the time of the Fall Moon, people are at the peak of their physical condition, and may fall into a dangerous euphoria. They believe they are capable of doing everything, especially when under the influence of alcohol. At the time of the Full Moon, we sometimes commit acts which bitterly regret later. It is better not to use the transport means imposing greater risk than usual, such as motorcycles or planes.
Cycle of Periodic Convergence of the Earth and the Moon
Perigee is the time when the Moon is closest to the Earth – it is characterized by impaired co-ordination of movement, proneness to errors and the loss of harmony in the relation between humans and machinery. This leads to the increased likelihood of industrial accidents and injuries at home and on the road. It is better to stay calm and not to take flights in this period. Better safe than sorry!
Finally, let us say a few words about the eclipses of the Moon and the Sun. All hazards related to the New Moon and Full Moon increase tenfold during eclipses. It is advisable not to deviate from the normal rhythm of live one week before the eclipse and one week after it, not to mention the time of the eclipse itself. Lunar eclipses have a stronger impact on women's psychology, while solar ones – on that of men. During the eclipses, women may have strokes, while men heart attacks more frequently – consequently, do not overload your body in this period.
