Read this. My progressed Moon crossed my natal Ascendant in January 2017. I left my previous employer in November 2016! I certainly felt a sense of freedom and ability to act since then. If nothing else, I am certainly on my own most of the time since then. Flying solo.
It’s uncanny that the 2 dates are so close although it could be the case that my time of birth is off by a few minutes.
You bet that I will be tracking the house of my progressed Moon from now on.
