  • Date: August 23 2017 9:05 pm (ET) 6:05 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Phase: 1st (good time for starting projects)
  • Void-of-Course: August 26 @ 1:38 am (ET) 10:39 pm August 25 (PT) to Moon in Scorpio a few hours later: Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void of course “good signs” .
  • House: 12th: House of dreams/fantasies, psychic abilities, the unknown, unseen… 
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Libra has a need for balance, indicating this moon period may be an ideal time to implement some into our daily lives. 
  • A desire for justice may be present, dealing with issues that have upset our sense of justice may prove to be productive. 
  • Money issues may be on the agenda, and we may have to either adjust our budget or monitor our spending over the next few days. 
  • Diplomacy is likely to be more apparent during the next few days, and may be a good time to bring up that topic you have been putting on the back burner. 
  • Hesitation is probably going to raise its head, we may see many sides of a story and find it difficult to make up our minds. 
  • Difficulty in making commitments or long-term decisions, because we can’t make up our minds. If this is the case perhaps wait a few days until the move has moved out of Libra. 
  • Libra is happiest when in a relationship or partnership. Indicating this may be a good time to begin one. 🙂 
  • Co-operation should be in the air, making this an ideal time to make plans with others. 
  • May be a good time to improve our appearance and surroundings. 
  • May be great time to go bargain hunting, 
  • In the 12th house. Those of us who “enjoy our own company” may feel the pull towards being alone… watch for the tendency to become withdrawn or secluded from others because of negative feelings such as depression or unworthiness..Psychic abilities may be jumping to be let free… so let them out to play, take care you don’t get silly with it though… ;)… Being creative can bring us joy now. 
  • These next few days may be positive for the following… Getting a hair cut, beauty treatments, buying clothes and buying for speculation. 
  • This moon sign will affect us all but will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
      • **Moon in Libra,
      • **Sun in Libra,
      • **Venus in Libra
      • **Venus in Aries
      •  **Moon in 12th house
      • **Moon in 7th house,
      • **Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
      • **Midheaven in Libra
      • **Ascendant in Libra
      • **Aspects to the Moon or Venus, the 7th, 12th or 4th house. 
      • **Folks with strong Aries in their charts. 

Mercury in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn are all in retrograde motion now. When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.

The Moon Void-of-Course:

Astrology: How it affects our daily life: The Sun Moves into Virgo August 22 2017:

Virgo: Earth: Feminine: Mutable:

The qualities of Virgo encourage her to be steady and sensible yet flexible when the need arises…


Note Mercury is in retrograde motion until September the 5th… however, he remains in “storm” until September 10th. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo along with Gemini. He rules, technology, transportation and communications. The first little while for Virgo influenced folks may not go as planned… have patience and remember to breath… 🙂 

Also in retrograde motion are the following: 

  • Saturn in Sagittarius,
  • Uranus in Aries,
  • Neptune in Pisces
  • Pluto in Capricorn.

When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.


  • Virgo sees detail everywhere, all those little things that are so incredibly important to the smooth running of a home or a business, Virgo is onto them… However, because she craves perfection she can be overly critical not only of others but of herself too… this can push Virgo’s to work harder and longer then some of the other signs, but may also create upset as nothing may seem good enough…

  • Happy to help and assist others, Virgo people are happiest when they feel needed and are kept busy, they have a fabulous down to earth, logical outlook on life and can put things in perspective for others… Great at trouble shooting..

  • Virgo’s love to keep lists and they need organization somewhere in their life to help them feel balanced.

  • Personal hygiene may be important to some Virgo’s. Other’s may have good intentions but may not always find the time to follow through. Looking after one’s self through diet and exercise may be high on the agenda.

  • Virgo’s are advised to watch for a tendency to worry, especially over health issues, or for a tendency to make mountains out of mole hills. 😉

  • Many Virgo’s can be found working in the health field.

  • Date: August 21 2017  @ 4:25 pm (ET) 1:25 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 4th moving into the 1st on the 22nd

  • House(s): 11th house of friends, hobbies, the community and humanitarian affairs.
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • 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 11th house: Dealings with friends, enjoying working in teams and groups… getting in touch with our hobbies, community and global humanitarian affairs. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Sun or Moon in Aquarius
  • Ascendant in Virgo

  • Moon in 6th and or 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Uranus, the 6th house, 4th house or 11th house.

The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting New Moon In Leo August 2017

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  August 19 @ 1:55 pm (ET) 10:55 am (PT) 2017 **NOTE** Solar Eclipse on August 21st along with New Moon in 28 degrees ♌ 
  • Moon Sign: Leo ♌ 
  • Moon Phase: 4th 
  • Void-off-Course: August 21 @ 2:30 pm (ET) 11:30 am (PT) to Virgo Moon a few hours later: *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 1oth house of career and public image. (Equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • The Leo Moon Loves Drama, so be warned… 
  • The Leo Moon loves to noticed and recognized, so be prepared to “pump up” your loved ones and if you happened to have a Leo influence in yourself, be aware of how you may be going about getting recognized or appreciated… If you play your cards right this could be a positive time when you get to be where you need to be.
  • Try not to be overly “vain” and be prepared for drama at any-time from any direction
  • Try not to over react and if it’s not you doing the over reacting, try not to get caught up in the drama, or to encourage the over reactor
  • It’s a good time to check out the local talent, take in a down town show, get starry-eyed with your lover, or perhaps look for a new one, as romance is high on the priority ladder during this time. 
  • Might prove positive for hair cuts, make overs. 
  • In the 1oth house of career public image… This is pretty powerful planetary energy,  the moon is  renewing herself in a fire sign, (♌ Leo) and a Solar Eclipse is happening … Those looking to boost or make changes in their career’s/line of work could be looking at a positive and productive few days. Having a job interview or starting a new job can both go well under this influence. 
  • This may be a positive time for: Beauty treatments: Borrowing money: Buying a home: Entertaining Guests: Fixing Cars: Hair Cut (For thickness): Moving: Mowing the Law (to retard growth): Painting: Pouring Cement: Starting new construction: Starting a new job: 
  • This moon period will affect everyone, but more so those who have the following in their charts:
  • Moon in Leo:
  • Sun in Leo:  
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 11th house
  • Moon in the 5th house 
  • Aspects to the moon or the Sun
  •  Those who have a strong Aquarius placement in their charts may also feel this moon’s influence more than others. 

The new moon occurs in Leo, after which she saunters on over to visit with the sign of Virgo: Traditionally, it is thought, that when the moon renews herself, it is also a good time for us to renew, or begin…This month, when the moon becomes new on Monday , she will be still be sitting in the 4th quarter…  she will move into the 1st quarter on Tuesday. making Tuesday the better day to begin our projects. The new moon can be a positive and uplifting time, and when she is in a fire sign like Leo, it can also be a good time to get involved in more active, fun and somewhat “risky” 😉 endeavors. Virgo traits will also be active during this new moon, such as paying attention to the smaller details and taking our health and hygiene serious, so too can the Virgo trait of being overly critical be active, so take care not to nag others who don’t seem to be doing things to “right” !!

The Solar Eclipse may bring about changes for some, and realizations that changes may be needed in the future for others…. Change relate to growth, and we are here to grow and learn, no matter how painful that may be at times… With this Eclipse happening in the sign of Leo with a dash of Virgo… Changes relating to our out look on life, our impatience with some aspects of our life, changes relating to the children and pets in our lives… Leo also likes to speculate or take risks where other’s wouldn’t go… the Eclipse may encourage some of us to go outside of our comfort zone… it will be up to these folks to be sure the timing is right for any major risks/changes, with Virgo’s extraordinary way of seeing the tiniest of details and flaws, she may well be able to help most of us make positive logically choices when it comes to big changes. 

Both the New Moon and the Solar Eclipse will have a greater effect on those with the following in their charts: The influences of these planetary activities will likely have the most effect on the area’s friendships, hobbies, humanitarian endeavors and community events.

  • Moon in Leo:
  • Moon in Virgo:
  • Sun in Leo:
  • Sun in Virgo:
  • Moon in Aquarius:
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Sun in Aquarius:
  • Sun in Pisces:
  • Any planets/signs in the 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or the Sun

  • Date: August 17 2017 12:13 pm (ET) 9:13 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Cancer
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: August 19 11:17 am (ET) 8:17 am (PT) to Moon in Leo, a couple of hours later: Cancer can be a productive v/c moon…
  • House(s): 9th house of travel, new experiences, study and legal activities. (Equal House) 
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • The moon is happy in the sign of Cancer because she rules here. Being sympathetic towards the worries of others is easier, we are more empathetic now. 
  • We can be more nurturing when there is a cancer moon
  • Domestic chores and responsibilities may be easier to do now, in fact some of us may be very happy making our home comfortable and safe
  • Cooking may be fun to do now,  so go ahead and try out that new recipe
  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offense or feel slighted or more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised though, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some of us may feel needy, while others of us are happy to be the cuddler, helping our loved ones feel secure and in deed needed. Caution is advised that some of us can go over board on the needy thing during this moon period, so be careful if you don’t want to “scare” someone off… 
  • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
  • This may be a good time to learn new things, especially those that relate to the domestic front or family. Take up a cooking class, or try new recipes, decorate the home or enjoy craft projects with the kids. This may also be a good time to do some tidy up and mini reno’s on the house.  
  • In the 9th house: Personal freedom is a must for the next few days, so get out or stay in… but whatever you do, have some you time doing just what it is that makes you feel good. The future looks brighter and we are capable of seeing life in a more positive frame of mind. Our belief system may get some attention under this influence, however, it’s best not to get too radical about them when engaging in heated debates… Keep in mind that everyone is entitled to their own opinions… Could be a good time for a weekend getaway for some, healing retreats, spiritual quests, meditation are all good to experience now.
  • This may be a positive time for: Beauty treatments, Brewing beer, Buying antiques, Buying for speculation, Can foods, Collect on debts, Hair cut (for growth) and plant bulbs from seeds.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. 
  • Moon in Cancer: (these folk may really feel the influence of the moon, emotions may be close to the surface)
  • Ascendant in Cancer:
  • Sun in Cancer:
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 4th, 9th house: (equal)
  • Aspects to the Moon, or planets in the 4th, 9th house’s
  • To a lessor extent, those who have personal planets in Capricorn

Mercury in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn are all in retrograde motion now. When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.

Zodiac sign Gemini on a background of the starry sky with the scheme of stars in the constellation, vector illustration Stock Vector - 37150664
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Nataliia Vzhyshnevska
  • Date: August 15 2017  10:06 am (ET) 7:06 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 4th 
  • Void-of-Course: August 17 @  9:38 am (PT) 6:38 am (ET) to moon in Cancer just around noon time (ET)
  • House(s) 8th house of extreme circumstances
  • Opportunity Period: August 16 9:41 pm (ET) 6:41 pm (PT) to void off course moon on the 17th.

What does it all mean?

  • Gemini is an air sign and needs lots of stimuli. She is ruled by Mercury. **Note: Mercury is currently in retrograde motion, expect delays, misunderstandings, car break downs, missed rides and breakdowns in relationships.  Expect also, the offer at a 2nd chance, a re-do or re-write and the opportunity to right past wrongs.
  • The house connected to Gemini is the 3rd house of: day-to-day travel/affairs and siblings… we could find ourselves busy with multiple things going on, even if they are just in our own minds… 😉 Dealings with family, especially siblings, are likely. 
  • We may find we are trying to do multiple things at once, which may not go exactly as we may have planned. If you do find you have tons of ideas spinning around in your head, take pen to paper and jot them down… it will ease the “inside chatter” and you may find some of them useful later on. 
  • Could be lots of chit chatting going on, and some of us may have to make a concerted effort to listen instead of chat.
  • Caution is advised when doing up letters, emails and relaying messages, as much as we may think we have it right, it’s better to check one more time 
  • In the 8th house: A crisis of sorts may be just around the corner for some of us… other’s may find this is a good time to sort out the paper work that’s been shoved aside, especially those dealing with insurance policies, benefit plans and mortgages. If you are thinking of making investments right now, be sure to read all the fine print before signing. Try not to make everything about you during these next few days, it’s easy to be overly sensitive and to allow the other negative energies such as jealousy take you over… Take care about your emotional reactions during this time, action and words undertaken now may have far-reaching effects. 
  • It’s a good time to get those lists and notes made up… we can feel good about putting pen to paper now.
  • Boredom may be at our door step and we may feel more restless than usual. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: buying a vehicle, entertaining guests, hair cut (for less growth), join a club, send mail, and mow the lawn to retard growth. Because of the Mercury Retrograde, everyone is strongly advised to read all the fine print, or be well-informed before making long-term commitments. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
        • Sun in Gemini
        • Moon in Gemini
        • Moon in the 3rd house (equal)
        • Moon in 8th house (equal)
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Pluto
        • Those who have a strong Sagittarius influence in their chart

Mercury in Aries, Saturn in Sagittarius, Uranus in Aries, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn are all in retrograde motion now. When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.

  • Sun in Leo (lesser effect)
  • Uranus in Leo (lessor effect)
  • Any aspects to Uranus

What does it all mean?

  • Uranus is the planet of shock, change and rebellion. He rules Aquarius. 
  • Retrograde, Uranus “appears” to be going backwards from the earth’s perspective. A good time to re-do, re-invent re-assess. 
  • Aries is action orientated, he likes to be on the go, can be selfish but also heroic. He is ruled by Mars.
  • Focus on making changes to the self, those we spend time with and the work that we do is on the agenda.  
  • Sudden change or “out of the blue” information/news can be expected.
  • Relationships will be in focus over the next few months, all of them. 
  • Finding out which relationships work and which ones don’t, is going to be the assignment. It may be a challenging time for those in bad or negative relationships as they begin to recognize they are in such relationships. 
  • A shake up is needed in all and any area’s of life that are not satisfying, uplifting or positive. This “shake up” may begin slowly and pick up momentum as the months go by. Making way for action once Uranus turns direct again. 
  • While this may be a somewhat unsettling time for some, it is wise to take heed of the need for change, and use this time to make ready for that change. 
  • Getting our emotions sorted is the key to understanding what we need to do next. This can be done by re-assessing our future plans and taking a good long look at what we want and where we are heading.  
  • Take time to seek out trusted folk who are ready to listen and who give unbiased sound advice. 
  • Be cautious of other’s who, once they are aware of unsettling circumstances, may try to take advantage and direct you towards avenue’s only fit for their own personal agenda’s.  
  • Where your morals and ethics are concerned stay true to yourself, as you invite much needed change into your life
  • In essence this could be a Shake up and somewhat challenging period for many of us, however it could also be “just what the dr. ordered” too 🙂 …
