Keep yourself happy. Drink lots of water. Eat many fruits and vegetables. Pet a cat. Read your favorite book. Plant a garden. Kiss a faerie. Sing with flowers. Hug trees. Save the bees. Dance under the moon. Surround yourself with crystals. Take a trip the the sea. Smile at the sun. Keep yourself positive.
Dancing under the moon light in a grassy field in Alabama with your S. O., you notice that the lightning bugs that had started out as only a few clusters were now completely surrounding you in a tornado of bugs. After staring at them for a few minutes, you look back at your S. O. They now have a face of a giant bug. What happens?
Aries Moon: Usually quite hyperactive, easy to rile up and their emotions are quite raw, either the first to fall asleep or they’re up till the next day suggesting a round two. They can be sort of unpredictable just as they would be sober, one minute they could be opening up, but the next they’ll get incredibly defensive and think that you’re going to judge them etc. Overall party animals but their childlike temperament can be a problem.
Taurus Moon: Pretty giggly and surprisingly ditzy, as if they’re on cloud 9. They talk about random shit and will take the time to tell you how much you mean to them in a perfectly honest way. If you’re drinking together, I promise you 97% of your inside jokes will be made then and there. They’ll really look after you if you need it and won’t judge you for anything you do in your drunken state. 10/10 would get drunk with (again).
Gemini Moon: They can be pretty mouthy but in a good way, they’re incredibly funny and will rip the piss out of you to your face for the laugh. Probably not the best at looking after drink friends but they try. They may get pretty thoughtful with like minded people but will also run around the place being the trickster.
Cancer Moon: Honestly takes the term “mom friend” to a whole new level. Their inner hoe shines when they’re drunk and they don’t give a shit but they’ll sober up as soon as someone is sick and needs help. Can make pretty stupid decisions as a result of deep seated insecurities but will eventually deal with it. They replace their walking with dancing too.
Leo Moon: Becomes the comedian of the evening even if they’re not usually very funny. They spend so much time when they’re sober laughing off their pain so when they’re drunk it comes down on them a lot harder meaning they could crumble should someone poke at their emotions. They’re very proud and HATE opening up when drunk, for this reason they often distract themselves when drunk with entertaining others.
Virgo Moon: Probably the most responsible drunk of the zodiac and by this I mean, they’d make sure to eat beforehand and they’d pace themselves etc but when drunk they tend to either party hard or sit and watch the world go by. They tend to be more outgoing and will be very chatty even with randomers! Other times though they will be the types that will sit, cloudy minded, watching and laughing at everyone else.
Libra Moon: Typically the “I love you” drunk but it isn’t always romantic or sexual. Their innate sense of compassion tends to become stronger and they are the type that will sit with someone who needs to (drunkingly) pour out their heart. They’re also social butterflies and will have fun with absolutely anybody. Not to mention they can be incrediblyyyyyyy flirty as if that wasn’t a given.
Scorpio Moon: This is the type of drinker that like their sign can be very enigmatic. They tend to be quite quiet and brooding but two minutes later they could be the soul of the party! This is because scorpio moons feel things so deeply that the alcohol - a natural depressant - will amplify those emotions, sometimes scorpio moon will brush them off and be incredibly fun but other times they need time to wallow, it’s natural and we all need it sometimes.
Sagittarius Moon: Loud af and can be in people’s face a lot. They’d probably be the type to do really dangerous drinking games or would be the one who decides to do something stupidly dangerous for fun. They don’t really do the whole emotional thing when drinking but when they do it’s A LOT of raw emotion and sometimes anger.
Capricorn Moon: These drunks are quite reserved until they get to their limit, once they pass it, they seem to lose all inhibitions. They can be very snide and suddenly their words are laced with venom so I would advise caution to those dealing with Capricorn moons when drunk. They can also be quite reckless but fun and surprisingly would be the person others look after rather than the other way around, they sober up pretty quick though.
Aquarius Moon: Surprisingly to most, these people are probably some of the most emotional drunks there are! This is because Aquarius is ruled by Saturn and Uranus. These people have a lot of chaotic emotions as it is but (when sober) Saturn keeps them locked away. When drunk, Saturn’s surface falls away and one minute this person will be partying hard and the next they may feel their walls crashing and burning.
Pisces Moon: Pisces Moon is in it’s element around alcohol as it is the sign of escapism, they must be careful and watch how much they drink. They usually become more outgoing and find it easier to be bluntly honest with others. These are generally the “happy go lucky” drunks but the slightest thing could potentially send them spiraling downwards so it is also important that they are with people they trust.

Enjoy! 5/14/17 EDIT: Gah! I forgot that I had swapped a song and rearranged a few for Victor’s list to have it make more chronological sense since I typed the list by hand. The link was correct and this post now has the right songs
moon in pisces is a dream you never quite wake up from moon in scorpio is a turbulent storm that blinds you and makes you beg for mercy until you realize you don’t need it moon in cancer is skipping stones across a pond, only the pond is you and the stones are environmental stimuli and the rippling of water is you laughing and crying moon in aries is a lightning bolt that takes off at dawn and paints the sky red with impulsive wonder moon in sagittarius is a smile you don’t want to take off riding a motorcycle to the moon and taking notes on your arm that no one ever sees until you deliver your analysis on moon rocks to the citadel moon in leo is a king in search of her crown in love with his people hungry for admiration, because no matter how much you love yourself you can’t help but want the public stamp of approval moon in aquarius is never coming down again, eyes on the sky, feet dangling just above the ground, and shameless alienosity that works its way deep into your veins moon in libra is singing in the rain and regretting nothing and everything at the same time but never the harmony, swing dancing and laughing at the sun well past twilight, holding someone’s hand and thinking of them right before sleep moon in gemini is a double tongued mouth home to twice the usual amount of mischief and wonder, thinking faster than most people breathe and asking them to chatter along with you moon in virgo is trying to feel everything with as little emotion as possible but selflessly divulging important fragments of yourself to other people for the good of everyone involved, and keeping your wits about you even at sea moon in taurus is arriving home at last, holding hands with your mother and nestling yourself in her arms, and then learning how to be your own mother, the tall woman inside you moon in capricorn is rising up again and again and again and kicking the stones away from your path and wiping your bloodied hands on your pants because life keeps going and so do you, it’s dancing despite tendinitis
Walking down a dim street with the few people clearing out of work, you can hear far away chatter and music from bars, the feeling of being alive and human is so prominent you feel like dancing in the street, in the silence and far away background noise.
Laying on a picnic blanket with a pet of some sort, watching the stars twinkle above, hearing the crickets all around you the way the trees are softly blowing, there is not a care in the world in your body at that moment.
Eating ice cream at a 24 hour burger joint, watching the few people trickle in and out, the heaviness of night upon you, a flickering light across from you and the sweet giggles of a couple next to you, you've never felt happier sitting outside eating ice cream.
At the beach, your feet dip in the sand and the stars lighting the world up, you can hear the ocean so clearly as though it got louder for you, every now and then it brushes against your toes and leaving you warm and content in this world.
Out with friends, standing outside of a club or a party, with the streets bright with lamps and the folk around outside drinking and talking loudly, the music indoors trickles out and the fresh cool air feels soft and sweet, and you feel entirely at ease.
Perched on a rooftop with the wind blowing your hair everywhere and the coolness of night taking your whole body over, you can hear a wolf howling in the distance, but otherwise the world is silent and for once you feel so quiet and peaceful.
On a boat with a lover and the water is still and the moon is bright and heavy over you, you feel dewy and new and the air is moist and yet cold, you can smell the last rain and the world feels so clear and beautiful.
Laying in the middle of an empty road, music buzzing around somewhere far off and your eyes glued to the deep blue sky, feeling the hard ground below and the chill in your body from the delight of being out in the night, immersed in the sky.
Sitting on a patio with a friend, wrapped in a giant blanket swapping crazy stories back and forth and feeling the warmth in the pit of your stomach from friendship, the moon lighting your faces and giving you the feel of eerie peace.
Sitting in a soft chair letting the moon light your face, feeling the relaxation of not doing anything, the sweet crisp air coming in from your open window and the absolute peace that flows through your body.
Drawing with glow in the dark chalk, on the middle of an empty road, creating a masterpiece for the world to see, humming along with crickets in the bushes and feel ease and comfort and loving to have a little time alone, and not caring a bit about what the rest of the world is doing.
Snuggled in bed with a giant pillow and unable to sleep because the moon is so wide and bright and your eyes are glued to it, the beautiful stars winking at you and the happy feeling of being included in the night, of almost being a part of the skies show. The dancing stars and the glowing moon, and there you are included in it all.
I’ve been back a couple times since then. I didn’t look you up cause some trains you cant catch again, you gotta leave it as it was. But when you think Tim McGraw, I hope think my favorite song. The one we danced to all night long. The moon like a spot light on the lake. When you think happiness I hope you think that little black dress, the one you said you always like best. And my old faded blue jeans, when you think Tim McGraw, I hope you think me.
Dancing under the full moon is cheaper than therapy
There’s just something about dancing under a full moon. I feel so connected to the earth. As if some primal instinct takes over me. The pale moon light penetrates to my core and the energy I feel is indescribable. I feel much better now.
I’m a little tired, I’ll just rest my head on those shoulders, and I must tell you, that i write with a cold heart that just wants to feel warm.
I have dreams and goals that seem unrealistic but what have i got to lose by dreaming about a day when the moon follows me home.
I’ll move out of this city where people do the same crap every single day and pretend that it’s okay, that this is it. We’ll work until we’re grey, get that money and go on vacations while we’re fragile and all I’m doing is watching this cycle repeating from the sidelines, I’m never really involved even though the world revolves; I’m just here standing still.
There’s got to be more to life, you mentioned that a few times and we might get to make more memories who knows but in this memory, we’re young forever. In this memory, I write down every little detail because I don’t care. In this memory, I dance with you until the moon finally explains itself to us in entirety. I’m full because of you, I’m empty because of you. In this memory, the metaphors never run out and the poetry isn’t just about love, it’s not about sadness anymore, it’s about clawing my way out of my thoughts and back into a moment where I’m whole.
I am the wildfire, and I’ll spread in many directions. I just hope that we never burn down together and if we do, that wouldn’t be so bad, right?
