  • 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.

The Moon and Astrology

HOW IT AFFECTS OUR DAILY LIVES… 

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-of-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 of 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 of Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-Course moon…  

Good for Void-Of-Course Moon: These v/c signs may prove to be quite productive times.

  • Cancer
  • Taurus
  • Sagittarius
  • Pisces…

Opportunity Periods  (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.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus retrograde August 2/3 to beyond the end of 2017

  • Astrological “Event” Uranus Retrograde 
  • Date: August 3 (ET) August 2 (PT)
  • Time: 1:31 am (ET) 10:31 pm (PT)
  • House (equal): 7th Relationships
  • Sign: Aries

While this astrological “event” will have a slight effect on all of us, it will have a stronger, and longer lasting effect on those who have the following in their charts: 

  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Ascendant in Aquarius
  • Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Uranus in 7th or 11th house
  • Uranus in Aries
  • Uranus in 1st house (lessor effect, unless Aries is also strong in the chart)
  • Sun in Libra (lesser effect)
  • 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 🙂 …

Astrology Notes: Mercury goes Retrograde August 12 to September 5 2017 (In storm August 3 to September 10 ):

 

  • Astrological Event: Mercury goes retrograde
  • Date enters “storm”: August 3 2017
  • Retrograde Date: August 12 2017
  • Date back into “storm”: September 5 2017
  • Date Mercury goes direct: September 10 2017
  • Mercury goes retrograde in the sign of Virgo until the end of August and then moves into the sign of Leo before moving back into Virgo on the 11th of September:
  • Those with the following strong influences in their charts will feel the Mercury Retrograde the most.
  • Mercury in Virgo or Leo and to a lessor extend, Mercury in Aquarius or Pisces
  • Sun in Virgo or Leo and to a lessor extend, Mercury in Aquarius or Pisces
  • Ascendant and or Midheaven in Virgo and to a lessor extend, Mercury in Aquarius or Pisces
  • Mercury in the 6th house and to a lessor extend, Mercury in the 5th, 11th or 12th house. 
  • planet mercury animated gif pic image
  • What does it all mean?
  • Mercury is the planet of communications, he is also a messenger and likes to do two things at once. He rules Gemini and Virgo.
  • Mercury rules communications, transportation and technology
  • While things may begin to run a little smoother in the above area’s once Mercury turns direct… try not to expect too much. Until he is “out of storm” on the 10th, missed appointments, misunderstandings, upset transportation, vehicle breakdowns and breakdowns relating to anything that runs on motor or by technology can still happen.
  • It’s a great time to make notes of your ideas, but don’t start anything new right now if you can help it.. If you do have a new project, job, relationship or you decide to buy a home or car during this time… be aware that not everything is likely to work out the way you may have expected… the best way of looking at things is with lower expectations than normal, this doesn’t mean you have negative expectations, it just means being open to all possibilities. 
  • Anything that needs re-doing, renewing, re-decorating, re-assessing or redressing is good to do now. And sometimes, if something “escaped” you in the past.. such as a house for sale that you loved but got sold, or a job that was on offer but then wasn’t.. can re-occur under the Mercury retrograde… 🙂 anything can happen under the Mercury retrograde and it doesn’t all have to be “scary”…

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  July 23 4:34 am (ET) 1:34 am (PT) 2017
  • Moon Sign: Leo
  • Moon Phase: 4th Moves into the 1st on July 24
  • Void-off-Course: July 25 @ 5:22 am(ET)2 :22 am (PT) to Virgo Moon a few hours later: *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11th house of hobbies, friends, groups and teamwork. (Equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: July 24 10:55 am (ET) 7:55 am (PT) to V/C on July 25th: Do what you can to make use of this time period… 🙂 May be more helpful towards Leo types. 

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 11th house: This is a time to find that new group or join that sports team you have been thinking of doing… It’s spring after all and for those of us in the cooler climates it’s a perfect time to re-connect with like-minded folks. Finding workable solutions to challenging situations may be easier to do under this influence, as we are more inclined to work together as opposed to trying to do everything on our own. It’s also a time, when we are happy to do some good within our communities. 
  • 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 at 0/44 on Sunday July 23: 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 Sunday , she will be still be sitting in the 4th quarter…  she will move into the 1st quarter on Monday. making Monday 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.
