  • Date:February 23
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius 
  • Moon Phase: 4th moves
  • Void-of-Course: February 25 1:11 pm (ET) to 7:24 pm (ET)  Aquarius Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now.

  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Aquarius is “different”,  he is ahead of his time and capable of thinking and “seeing” things in a different way then the rest of us. 
  • Aquarius is ruled by Uranus,  the planet of  shock and chaos.
  • We may feel may inclined towards kindness, especially on a “global” level or towards animals, the elderly and those worse off. 
  • Getting along with our four-legged friends may be on the top of our list now. 
  • The time may be right to understand/learn about new technology, such as a new phone, tablet or t.v. 
  • This moon period can bring out the rebel in us, prompting us to try new things and or meet new people. 
  • Be careful not to break tradition just because one feels like being different or as some may see it, “difficult” Teenagers may feel the need to express themselves, so parents be for warned. 
  • Personal freedom and individuality is very important now. Partner’s try not to restrict each other’s movements. Parent’s it might be a tight line you walk now. Employer’s give your “worker’s” a little “slack”. 
  • Being organized might not be as easy now, so expect weird schedule’s and interrupted meetings…
  • Changes may be in the air…
  • Could be a good time for inventions… Perhaps keeping them to paper until after the 25 is advisable if the goal is for the invention to work. 
  • In the 4th house: May be a good time to do some funky updates on the domestic front. 🙂
  • In the 5th house: Discipline may be in focus with children and pets. This could be a good time to give up gambling and to structure our lifestyle.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And too will those with strong Cancer or Leo placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 5th house
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Moon in Leo
  • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius

New Moon in Aquarius… All of the above influences will be stronger during the New Moon, which, traditionally it is said to be the best time to begin a new project or relationship. The moon moves into the 1st quarter on January 28th. The New Moon is on the January 27th. Those with a strong Aquarius influence may feel more rebellious than usual, the urge to try something totally different or bring out the “shock” factor may be present. Those with a Leo chart influence may be “intrigued” by the Aquarian eccentricity.

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-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. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

Pisces: Feminine, Mutable, Water: 

Pisces folk are compassionate and can have a habit of rescuing strays, (people and animals)… Feeling everything around you, (emotionally) it can be exhausting for you to spend too much time among crowds 🙂 

Spending time alone is good for you and should be encouraged as long as you don’t spend too much time in your “wonder land” … a place most Pisces’s know…. 🙂

You are encouraged to be aware of people who may take advantage of your kindness… use your strong psychic ability to sort the “wheat from the chaff” 

Thanks for caring guys….

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): February 15 (PT) February 16 (ET) 2017.
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: February 17 around 2:40 pm (ET) to around 8:57 pm: 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: February 17 9:18 am (ET) to 2:38 pm (ET) .. short but can be useful

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… 🙂 
  • 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 or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

  • Date: February 13 2017 around 6:am (ET)
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: February 15  around 9:00 pm:  Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void of course “good signs” Relationship issues may not go as planned, leave the planning until after the V.O.C moon… 
  • House: 12th: House of our dreams and wishes and perhaps our fears and phobias…those who have a tendency towards using drink, drugs, shopping and eating as escape routes when things get a little rough..We can be closer to our spiritual self, however, we can also be lulled into believing things that aren’t true… 
  • Opportunity Period: February 15 11:54 am (ET) 8:54 am(PT) to v/c moon. We can get stuff done now.

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. 
  • 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 1st house: Our energy levels may be up and down, we can be more protective towards our loved ones, especially our children.. Relations with mother type personalities may be strained but they will remain strong. When it comes to allowing others to see our true self, we may find we aren’t as open to revealing as much as we had thought. 
  • This moon sign will affect us all but will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
