People who track the Moon stay in touch with the daily Moon sign. For example, as of this writing the Moon is in Pisces and will move into Aries toward the end of the day. Pisces days are great for prayer or meditation, contemplation, gardening, singing, heartfelt conversation (though we can be a bit sensitive at this time, so be careful), laying out a tarot spread, or anything that connects us to whatever that thing is that we call the divine, the mystery, spirit, or God. Even knocking back a few may be a way to dissolve the barriers between reality and the otherworld, but that’s an artificial means and brings Piscean problems of its own. It’s certainly not the best choice.
Personal Days are based on the numerology of our own birthday. For example, today is a 7 day for me. 7 days are about introspection, withdrawal, prayer and meditation, research and education, communing with the divine. Can you see how a 7 day during the Pisces Moon might make for a very sensitive time? What are my plans for this Pisces 7 day? I’m planting a few bulbs in my garden where one of my dear pets is buried. I need some time alone, some time with him, some time in my garden, and time with the mysteries, too.
Your own Personal Day may indicate something completely different. Let’s say you are having a #1 Personal Day. The number 1 (related to the Sun) is the day of beginnings, exhibiting your individuality, and asserting your leadership. It requires courage and independent action, envisioning a goal. How would a Pisces Moon Day and a #1 Personal Day blend? You might start a new painting, lead the choir or a group meditation, do a tarot reading for someone else, or start a yoga practice.
A Pisces 2 day blends with the Moon, which indicates the women in your life. You might find yourself in deep conversation with your mother, best girlfriend, or women’s group. You may be called upon to lend some kind of compassionate support to a woman in your life.
If color is your language, think in terms of the sea greens, violets, and pale silvery blues of Pisces. Add the vibrant red of the number 1 to that palette and something completely different emerges. Mandala makers could find great possibilities with these palette combinations.
In terms of food, a soft and sumptuously velvet bisque would get kicked up several notches with a heavy dash of a Martian cayenne.
In terms of planet placements, Sun (1) in Pisces is very different from Saturn (4) in Pisces.
See how it works?
Moon signs can’t be beat for planning the type of activities to carry out on a particular day. Personal Days show a natural inclination for each day, the type of activities and moods that seem to naturally arise.
Why not try track both for a while and see if you find the same holds true for you? I show you how to find your Personal Day at the bottom of this post.

How to Calculate your Personal Day
Here’s a very simple worksheet to figure out your Personal Day. Always add multi-digit numbers to get a single digit.
Wearing the day’s color may help you feel closer to the energies it addresses. Try a piece of jewelry with colored stones to match each day’s color, a scarf or accessory of any kind, or maybe even a flower on your desk to remind you of the day’s energy.
Write your Personal Day number on your monthly calendar for easy tracking. If the first of the month is a #2 day, the 2nd will be 3, the 3rd will be a 4, and so on. The numbers repeat every nine days. If the first of the month is a 6, the 2nd will be a 7, and so on. (Boring, but easy.)
