What the heck is a balsamic moon, anyway?

Your daily horoscopes are here, astrology lovers! We have a sliver of a Moon in Sagittarius with the Sun in Sagittarius. As mentioned yesterday, there's much of Sagittarius's influence on zodiac signs.

Venus, the planet of love takes relationships in the direction of compromise. Then, Mercury in retrograde which reminds us to consider our own needs as we communicate them to others, but to also be more cautious for our own sake.

Saturn is in its last week of Sagittarius before moving into Capricorn, many zodiac signs already begin to feel a turn in the tide of their luck and good fortune. But today, the Moon is different from its usual self. Some describe it's appearance as balsamic. What does that word mean, anyway? And what does it mean for your daily horoscope?

When the Moon prepares itself for recharging with the Sun, it slowing wanes and when it reaches the point where it's a sliver, it's termed "balsamic". Just as the name implies, the darkness over the face of the Moon functions like a cloak that allows it time to heal. Darkness is like a balm. 

Perhaps, when you were a child, you were afraid of the dark. Some children go to great lengths to avoid darkness. They fear shadows. The moment night falls, their imagination runs wild. Suddenly noises sound more ominous.

Perhaps there's a boogie man under the bed. Maybe there's a monster in the closet. Then, when the Sun starts to shine again through the window, relief is felt. Light is back to save the day.

But good things happen in the darkness. In the darkness of a mother's womb, a child is formed, Some people find a dark bedroom sexier for intimacy. As an adult, we learn to appreciate the darkness. A dark bedroom is ideal for a good night's sleep, and for some, even a little bit of light makes it difficult to rest.

A dark night is romantic and there's also the old saying, "the darkness before the dawn" means a new beginning is fast around the corner. It's a signal that gives hope, and that's what this time means for all zodiac signs — hope, restoration, and healing.

What does this mean for your zodiac sign according to astrology?

A time of rest is necessary just before we move on to new things. We need this time to rejuvenate and to heal. Just like the Moon takes a place behind the Sun to change its energy, we can take a back seat and think about our next steps, too.
