How to Plan Your Work Life By the Sign the Moon is in
You can get more done and be more successful if you plan your work-related activities according to the sign the moon is in.
The moon makes an orbit around the Earth every 28 days and spends about 2 1/2 days in each sign. As it travels from sign to sign it affects your mood and your energy level. The moon takes on a different energy in each sign so you can leverage that energy if you understand it and apply it to what needs to be done.
So how do you make the magic of the moon cycle work for you? Read this guide below to find out what work activities you’ll be better off doing when the moon is in each sign.
When the moon is in Aries
Plan projects, come up with a strategy and schedule how you plan to implement it. This is a time to take control and even sign up for a leadership role. Don’t go along with the crowd; allow your unique professional skills to shine.
When the moon in is Taurus
During this transit, you may not be as productive as usual. Your mind may, in fact, be more preoccupied with your personal life. If you can take a day off, this could be the ideal time for a mental health day. If you can work from home during this time, do so. Also, you may want to use this time to make sure your working environment is as pleasing as possible. Applying feng shui principles to your office, for example, may be particularly helpful during this time. However, Taurus rules the 2nd house of money so this is the best time to ask for that raise.

When the moon is in Gemini
This is a good time for networking. Whether it’s a Zoom happy hour or an afterwork get-together with co-workers, the Gemini moon will inspire you to share stimulating ideas and possibly forge new professional connections that can prove helpful in the future.
When the moon is in Cancer
What moves you about your work? Get in touch with that aspect of it during this time. Do you feel like what you are doing is making a difference? Is there a part of your job that makes you feel like you are in service to others? Any emotional ties you have to your work should be acknowledged during this time because you are likely to feel them more than usual. If you don’t have any emotional connection to your work, you may find yourself longing to do something else during this time.
When the moon is in Leo
If you have to give a speech or take center stage professionally, this is the time to do it. If you can pick the time you take the spotlight, schedule it for the Leo moon. Any time you want all eyes on you, plan an event that takes place during this transit so you can soak in the attention this energy brings.
When the moon is in Virgo
This is one of the best working moons as the energy of conscientious Virgo can help you put your nose to the grindstone and get things done. If you have a big report to do, this is the perfect moon to schedule a chunk of time to work on it. However, don’t plan to finish a project such as a report at this time. Virgo energy will have you striving for perfection that you are not likely to reach.
When the moon is in Libra
This is a great time for team projects. The collaborative energy will likely be off the charts during this cycle. Plan a business retreat or schedule a team project to kick off or take place during this time of the month. If you have a monthly team meeting, schedule it during the Libra moon.
When the moon is in Scorpio
When you are ready to analyze what is working — and what is not — do your business soul-searching during the Scorpio moon. This is the time for solo projects; if you can avoid other co-workers and possibly work from home, this is the ideal time to do it. The Scorpio moon is also the time to work on your most important projects.
When the moon is in Sagittarius
This is the time to take your business risks, or start a new business venture. This isn’t the time to plan the venture — think Aries for that — but when you want to kick it off, let the Sagittarius moon be your cue. This is a time of stretching forward and catapulting your professional goals further; if there is ever a time to throw caution to the wind, this is it.
When the moon is in Capricorn
This is the other great time of the month to get a lot done. Like the Virgo moon, the Capricorn moon will give you the energy and discipline to get a lot accomplished. Finish up those projects you started during the Virgo moon, and you may find that you complete everything with time and energy to spare.
When the moon is in Aquarius
This is your creative brainstorming time. Aquarius energy wants to be unique and it takes a very individualized approach. Forget about herd mentality; this is the time to do your thing. If you have a side hustle or you are thinking about starting your own business, focus on that endeavor during this time. If you have professional ambitions to do something that can change the world for the better, the Aquarius moon will also be a great time to put some of those plans in action.
When the moon is in Pisces
This is a good time for bonding with colleagues or other professional connections. During the Pisces moon, take a close co-worker to lunch and get to know them better. The connections forged during this time may transcend your professional world and touch your personal life.
