The Moon governs your emotional self in astrology, and each month, you experience something called a Lunar Return, which is when the Moon returns to the exact position in the Zodiac it was at when you were born. You can create a chart for this moment each month, and glean insights into your emotional focus.
One of the positions you pay attention to is the house location of the Moon in the Lunar Return Chart, since the matters that house rules may be prominent around the return for you.
