  • Date: January 14 2:42 pm (ET)  11:42 am (PT)
    ***NEW MOON January 16th***
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: January 17 @ 1:30 am(ET) January 16 @ 10:30 pm  (PT) to Moon in Aquarius in the on the 17th: Capricorn Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s) 4th House of domestic duties 
  • Opportunity Period: January 16 9:02 pm (ET) 6:02 pm (PT) to 10:02 pm (ET) 7:02 pm (PT)… This is an excellent time to start something… 

What does it all mean?

  • Capricorn is business, duty and discipline. She is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restrictions. 
  • We may be more in tune with our work/career or vocational direction.
  • Change may be more challenging to deal with, and we may be resistant towards it… 
  • Being disciplined towards our “duties/chores” may be easier to achieve. 
  • Dealings with the elderly may be in focus. 
  • Dealings with “authority” types, such as teachers, principles, supervisor’s may be in focus. Being respectful of such positions may help to alleviate tension. 
  • This could be a good time to get mundane business tasks out-of-the-way
  • If you have been waiting to get a “chaotic” situation under control, now may be a good time to do it. 
  • Rules and regulations may be in focus, and depending on how you deal with these, it could be a favorable time or a stressful one. 
  • Good time to watch, listen and learn
  • We may find we are looking at our “worth” now, including the salary we get paid. 
  • We are happy to work for our “keep”, knowing we are doing a good job. 
  • Moon in the 4th house: Taking care of our home and our loved ones could be on the top of our agenda’s… If you have been waiting for a good time to “pretty up” your home, these next couple of days may be a good time to do it.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong  Cancer placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Moon in the 3rd house
  • Moon in Gemini
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn
  • ***January 16th is the date of the New Moon. The New Moon is traditionally thought of as the best time to begin a new project, start a new job, start a business, a new class or any new venture. With the moon in Capricorn it is possible that this new moon will be a positive time for career, job or vocation situations. All of the moon in Capricorn traits will be stronger under the new moon. This is also a good time to ask the Universe to assist us with bringing in something new into our lives… write it all down on a piece of paper, keeping good intentions at all times, read it aloud and then lite the paper with a match and let the smoke drift out into the universe, taking all positive requests with it… (Play it safe, make sure you have a fire-proof container for the ashes to drop into…) 🙂

  • In astrology, the moon is connected to our emotions and reactions… how we are feeling on a given day may well be influenced by the sign that is visiting the moon… Each sign stays with the moon for up to 2.5 days…. 🙂 

The Moon Void-off-Course: 

  • There are times throughout the month when the moon isn’t fully immersed in any sign… this is when we say the moon is Void off Course… and when this occurs, we may feel “foggy” and “unfocused” … We may not be sure how we are truly feeling about a situation or a person…. Therefore it is not recommended that we make long-term commitments or important decision’s while the moon is Void off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Off-Course Moon:

  • These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.
  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (thanks to astrologer Jim Shawvan):

  • There are other periods throughout the month that are known as opportunity periods, when it can prove to be a positive time for most people, however if you have challenging aspects happening within your own chart you may not be able to make use of opportunity periods.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio January 2018

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs with women's faces- Scorpius Stock Photo - 24022483
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): January 9th 3:05 pm (ET) 12;05 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: January 11 @ 9:53 am (ET) 6:53 am (PT)  to Moon in Sagittarius in the late night early morning hours : Scorpio is NOT one of the “good” v/c signs.
  • House(s): 1st house: Of the self… one’s own needs and desires are in focus:
  • Opportunity Period: A very short one on January 11 8:41 am (ET) 5:41 (PT) to v/c moon. 

What does it all mean?  

  • Scorpio is very intense and probably the most sensitive of the zodiac signs. She is ruled by Pluto now, but was once considered to be ruled by Mars… she likely retains some of the Martian influence. 
  • The moon relates to our emotions, indicating we could be feeling everything more deeply for the next couple of days
  • We can immerse ourselves in our projects now.
  • Watch for becoming obsessed with someone or something…. not everyone falls for someone at the same time and patience may be needed regarding sensitive relationship matters
  • Be sure that your partner, friend, lover, co-worker or school friend is really trying to upset your personal apple cart before making waves
  • We could be encouraged or directed towards taking risks or doing things we wouldn’t normally do, especially those of a group or team nature. 
  • Sex may be high on the agenda for some of us… so if you don’t want to help the world population grow right now use caution… 🙂 
  • Some of us may be highly creative right now, while others get connected to their psychic side… 
  • Secrets may be told now… we can be enticed to open up to others about our deepest feelings/fantasy’s…
  • In the 1st house: Our needs and desires are at the top of the agenda, making this a challenging time for folk who are used to doing things their way as they may inadvertently upset others, or come across as being selfish. Being aware of how we speak to and deal with others is a good way of keeping any selfish streak under control. For those who are usually the ones who do all the giving, enjoy this time, and do something nice for yourself, you deserve it… 🙂
  • Moon in Scorpio is good for advertising to sell personal possessions, move, plant bulbs from seed {perhaps not yet for us northern folks ;)}
  • While we will all be effected slightly by the Scorpio moon, she will have a greater effect on those who have the following in their charts..

    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Moon in Aries
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in 1st or 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, Mars, Venus or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

  • Virgo is all about the details, so be prepared to see to them or at least have someone else see to them for you, you will feel better 🙂 
  • Try not to worry about things you have no control over, especially things that might not ever happen… Because Virgo “see’s” all the details others miss, it’s hard for her not to worry… 
  • It’s good to keep busy during a Virgo moon, make lists, tidy, organize, plan, find solutions to problems… a lot can get done now
  • Virgo can be more critical than the rest of the zodiac, but only because she so need things to be “correct” or “perfect”. Try to give yourself and others a break over the next couple of days. If you are an employer, be prepared that tasks may not get completed exactly they way you had expected. 
  • In the 12th house… This could be a good time to look back at the last month and see where mistakes have been made, soloutions and improvements are possible now.. Some folks may feel more emotionally then usual, however, expression such emotions may not be that easy… for those who are prone to depression or negative thoughts, try and do some fun and positive if you can… Pisces is ruled by the 12th house…
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th and or 12th house
