The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Capricorn…September 2016


Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Sign of the Zodiac, depicted in the form of jewelry. Stock Vector - 8673035
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : urrra
  • Date:¬†September 10 2016
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn¬†@8:55 am (ET)5:55 am ¬†(PT)¬†
  • Moon Phase:¬†2nd
  • Void-off-Course:¬†September 12 @ 6:00 am (ET) 3:00 am (PT) to 5:28 pm (ET) 2:28 pm (PT): Capricorn¬†Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now.¬†
  • House(s) 4th:¬†In the 4th house of domestic affairs and family
  • Opportunity Period:¬†None

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.¬†
  • In the 4th house¬†we may be focused on our domestic duties, some of us could feel frustrated if things aren’t as organized as they would like when it comes to the home. Take some time out this weekend to be with family and folks who feel like family… and if that’s not possible¬†¬†
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Gemini or Cancer placing in their charts.¬†
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn
  • Mercury, Uranus, Neptune and Pluto are all retrograde at the moment… indicting a more challenging or frustrating time regarding getting plans sorted and put into action… take extra care about documentation, read it over carefully … be careful while driving .. be aware that nothing stays the same, and while change is sometimes hard to take, it can also open up new opportunities…ūüôā For some folks unexpected news may be on the horizon…
  • ¬†Mercury is the planet of communication and technology, he is quick on the uptake and absolutely hates being bored or stagnant… he rules Gemini and Virgo: Be prepared for lost communications, misunderstandings and confused directions when traveling. It’s a great time to review your plans and put ideas for the future down on paper. Check and double-check your work before submitting it… Transportation issues may be in the news, and some folks may have car trouble.¬†
  • Uranus is the planet of shock and chaos, he rules Aquarius. Humanitarian efforts may be on the agenda, and places where such is needed may have a 2nd chance. May be a favorable time for counselling or resolving a psychological challenge. Intuition in those with Uranus influence in their charts will be stronger, and it’s possible to find solutions,¬†¬†to the most nagging problems. Folks who may have been thinking about making big changes in their lives could find this is the perfect time to do so, no matter how it might surprise others.¬†
  • Neptune is the planet of fantasy, dreams and the “underworld” or that which is not seen… He rules Pisces. It could be a rather “foggy” or confusing time for some… we are encouraged to allow ourselves to dream and be open to our spiritual side… here we can find some peace and perhaps some answers… For those who are drawn to the “darker” side of life, you are advised to be careful of your manner and frequency of escapism. This may not be the best time to embark on new romance if the “fog” seems to be especially thick…¬†
  • Pluto is the planet of Death, Sex and Re-generation… he rules Scorpio… While Pluto is retrograde we get a chance to review our finances and insurance policies… we may be shaken up by the “death” of a situation … we may have to let go of old beliefs and move away from bad habits or people who do us no good… Change is on the agenda, whether we want it or not… however, with change comes something new and exciting if we allow it …¬†

Folks with the following chart influences may feel the retrograde energy more than the rest of us: 

  • Mercury in Gemini or Virgo:
  • Uranus in Aries
  • Neptune in Pisces (stronger influence as Neptune rules Pisces)
  • Pluto in Capricorn:¬†
  • The Sun or Moon in Aries: Gemini: Sagittarius: Scorpio:¬†

  • Date: August 31 2016
  • Moon Sign: Virgo¬†11:22 am (ET) 8:22 am (PT)
  • Moon¬†Quarter: 4th: Moves into the 1st on September 2
  • Void-of-Course: September 2¬†@ 6:13 pm (ET) 3:13 pm (PT) to 8:55 pm (ET) 5:55 pm¬†(PT):¬†Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”

  • 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 other’s 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: Team work and co-operation within group activities is indicted. For some folk being emotionally distant can be easier now.¬†
  • In the 12th house: Hospital visits may be on the agenda as a patient or as a visitor.. Take care who you share you inner most secrets with. Old “wounds or upsets may surface, forgiving and letting are recommended… :)¬†
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Aquarius or Pisces placement in their charts..
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Venus in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th, 11th or 12th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury.

NEW MOON: September 1 2016

This months new moon will take on Virgo traits… the ability to see all the details, and a tendency to worry too much. While the new moon is the best time to begin a new project, it is advisable to wait until Friday the 2nd to do so.ūüôā Use this time to tidy up, see to loose ends, get some organizing down…ūüôā This New Moon will have a stronger effect on those who have Virgo influences in their chart. (see above).

How to set your intentions for on the New Moon…¬†

What changes would you like to bring into your life now?¬†The new moon is the perfect time to let the Universe know¬†what it is you would like to bring into your world… ask for guidance in finding direction and focus… Once written out on paper and heartfelt words said, light the paper on fire and let burn in a heat-resistant container… (or ash tray) :)¬†

(never leave a lit flame unsupervised: Not recommended for children/youth without adult supervision)

Solar Eclipse: 

  • With the solar Eclipse happening in Virgo, emphasis will be placed upon health and work… While Virgo cannot help but see the detail in everything and strives for perfection, it is advisable to also see Pisces view of the world, compassion and understanding that to “err is human” ¬†
  • The influence of the Solar Eclipse may last up to 6 months, and can give some of us time to re-group and re-asses our priorities, especially our day-to-day activities.
  • It’s a good time to begin a new health regime, or to have a look at, and make changes to, our diet. If we aren’t feeling 100% in ourselves physically or emotionally, it’s time to find out why and get some solutions in order.
  • The next few months will be about the practical side of life, time spend at home, with family is on the agenda… seeing to appointments and making sure life is secure and everything is sorted…
  • This Solar Eclipse will affect everyone to a small degree, but will affect those with the following in their charts.¬†
