Bell, Lynn – The Moon and Dependency

We begin life truly dependent on the care of others for our survival. The Moon in our chart often tells us whether we got just enough of this essential care, or barely enough to thrive. We may even have gotten way too much for our own good. Our dependency patterns in adult life, whether they take the extreme form of addictions to drugs and alcohol, or the more hidden path of emotional dependency, are often reflected by the aspects and sign of the Moon. We can be addicted to gaming or gambling, to daily conversations with Mom, to seduction, attention, or money. The Moon tells us where we get sticky and stuck, and even more points us in the direction of the underlying emotions that set it all into movement. Breaking the circle of repetition is a powerful act of consciousness, and finding the right timing is essential. How can we use transits and progressions to break into a new emotional life?
