Finding my Natal Moon sign and phase...

Trying to find my Natal Moon sign and phase provided me with a lot more information than I was seeking, but it is all very interesting! I have discovered amongst many other interesting facts that my Natal Moon sign is Leo and the Natal Moon phase was waxing gibbous.

Moon sign for 1st May 1982 est is LEO 

Proud, benevolent, generous, creative and jolly. Craves to be noticed and appreciated,
cannot bear to stay in the shadow or be criticized.
In the depths of their souls, these people know they are true nobility, perhaps even royalty or monarchs. They know for certain that they were born different to others and only some outrageous injustice has destined them to live in a small flat instead of a palace. Yet even in these circumstances the Moon in Leo tries hard to create a decent and elegant lifestyle. He or she insists on buying clothes and items which are special in some way, and enjoys throwing a party and having guests at home ? an easy way, perhaps, for them to show their true colours.
Leo Moons are proud of their children, who they naturally assume have remarkable talents that distinguish them from others, and as parents they are happy to spend whatever it takes to discover and develop their kids' talents. They can also be big spenders when it comes to buying clothes, both for themselves and their children. Wearing rags is not for nobles! Moon in Leo individuals often have good taste, especially with clothes and food, and this is frequently the result of their own parents' influence. Even if they don't have any creative talents of their own, which is highly unusual, they are still interested in arts, theatre and fashion, and they undoubtedly have their own distinct opinions about these, and all other subjects.
Playing, celebrating and partying are the best ways for Moon in Leo people to restore their energy after periods of stress. For good self-esteem, every now and again they also need to be viewed, appreciated, and adored.
If they don't have enough love in their life, Moon Leos can have problems with their heart, circulatory system or their general levels of physical energy. Problems with vision are also quite typical. Many Moon Leos tend to have some sort of difficulty in their relationships with their own children, perhaps because they are so eager to spoil them.

Saturn Return

I had a beautiful and deep discussion with my cousin Mel and her partner Amanda on Christmas Day about the life journey I am taking and focusing on in 2011. It all came about when I was compelled to show my cousin the collection of books that I was gifted for Christmas from Mumma. It started a deep and beautiful conversation about the path I have chosen to explore, my feelings and the reasons behind my seeking. My cousin has also been down this path and has explained to me that I have come into and am experiencing Saturn's Return and that I should look into it. Upon googling this I found this article (along with a stage production about a young womans journey with Saturn Return - which I now want to go see!!) and it was amazing to read . So inspiring and comforting yet somehow unsettling to know that this is a natural progression in life and that many people undergo these inner searches at my age..... unfortunately not all will listen and work on their lives at this time and will find themselves having a much harder time of it when they are aged around 55.

Even though your Saturn Return may be disturbing, ultimately it reveals what you truly want and sweeps away the clutter that may have been impeding your progress. Your Saturn Return is a personal spring cleaning. No matter how difficult it seems to let go of inappropriate people and things, the first Saturn Return is the time to do it. For if lessons are not learned, the problems will come knocking again during your second Saturn Return at about age fifty-eight, when you are more set in your ways. Once the conflict is confronted, the tension usually subsides. You feel stronger and more capable of moving ahead.
