  • Date: December 11 2017 12:01 am (ET) December 10 9:01 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: December 13 @ 7:27 am (ET) 4:27 am  (PT) to Moon in Scorpio in the afternoon: Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void of course “good signs” .
  • House: 12th:  
  • 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. 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. 🙂 
  • 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, 
  • 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 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 Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries are both in retrograde motion. 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.

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  (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. astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

  • Date: December 8 2017  @ 6:09 pm (ET) 3:09 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 3rd 
  • Void-of-Course: December 10 @ 10:02 pm (ET) 7:02 pm (PT) to Moon in Libra in the evening:  Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s):
  • 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. 
  • 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 11th house
  • Midheaven in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • And those who have strong Pisces placement in their charts..

 

Mercury in Sagittarius & Uranus in Aries are 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.

Mercury Retrograde December 2 2017: Mercury turns direct December 23 2017

Shiny blue Mercury sign on black . Stock Vector - 24012082
Copyright : dvarg

Mercury Retrograde… we hear and see this quite a bit in and out of the astrology world…. and sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂  When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit with this circumstance, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to and do as many things possible with the two letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdocorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, if you don’t ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be REdone at a later date

When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.

The Second 2015 Mercury Retrograde, “storm” and when it turns direct dates are below.

  • Mercury enters its “storm” on November 28 {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on December 2 (PT) December 3 (ET):
  • Mercury turns direct on December 23:
  • Mercury is clear of its storm December 28:

Inspirational words: SGC Admin from our inbox to you from Madisyn Taylor on “sitting with feelings”

Sitting With Feelings

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

Taking the time now to sit with your feelings and acknowledge them will save you much distress down the road.

It can take great courage to really sit with our feelings, allowing ourselves to surrender to their powerful energies. All too often we set our feelings aside, thinking we will deal with them later. If we don’t deal with them, we end up storing them in our minds and bodies and this is when anxiety and other health issues can arise. Denying what our bodies want to feel can lead to trouble now or down the line, which is why being in the thick of our feelings, no matter how scary it seems, is really the best thing we can do for ourselves. 

One of the reasons we tend to hide or push aside our feelings is that we live in a culture that has not traditionally supported emotional awareness. However, as the connection between mind and body–our emotions and our physical health– becomes clearer, awareness of the importance of feeling our feelings has grown. There are many books, classes, workshops and retreats that can help us on our way to emotional intelligence. We can also trust in our own ability to process what comes up when it comes up. If sadness arises, we can notice its presence and welcome it, noting where in our bodies we feel it, and allowing ourselves to express it through tears or a quiet turning inward. 

When we simply allow ourselves to fully feel our feelings as they come, we tend to let them go easily. This is all we are required to do; our feelings simply want to be felt. We often complicate the situation by applying mental energy in the form of analysis, when all we really need is to allow, as the earth allows the rain to fall upon it. As the rain falls, the earth responds in a multitude of ways, sometimes emptying out to form a great canyon, sometimes soaking it up to nourish an infinitude of plants. In the same way, the deeper purpose of our feelings is to transform the terrain of our inner world, sometimes creating space for more feelings to flow, sometimes providing sustenance for growth. All we need to do is allow the process by relaxing, opening, and receiving the bounty of our emotions

Aries Lovely zodiac signs formed by stars on black background Stock Vector - 13127541

  • Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:
  • Date: November 28 11:30 am (ET) 8:30 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aries
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: November 30 1:37 pm  (ET) 10:37 am  (PT) to moon in Taurus on Thursday: Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
  • House(s): 6th : House of Health, Hygiene, Service, Routine and work.
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Aries is action, he is the most masculine of the Zodiac signs as he is ruled by the planet Mars
  • We should have slightly more get up and go when the moon is in Aries
  • We are happy to defend our loved ones
  • We are apt to speak up more, even those of us who consider themselves to be “timid” can find the voice they need right now. 
  • May be a good time to get your message across or to ask for what you need
  • Be careful when driving especially when upset or angry
  • We may be more susceptible to head injuries or head aches
  • We could be eager to start projects now, however, we have just experienced a full moon, (time to finish up) so if you really want to start something now, choose something small… 🙂 
  • Be careful about while engaging in physical activities, we may feel stronger or more “heroic” at the moment but our bodies might not be in the same “zone” 🙂 
  • We may be more decisive than usual, as always use caution … 
  • Be careful about saying yes to everything right now, we might feel like we can handle more, but when the time comes we could be sorry we took on so much at once. 
  • Being healthy and feeling good so we can help others, or at the very least get our chores done may be on the agenda for the next few days. 
  • In the 6th house: The perfect time to get all those little jobs done at work, time to get things organized and put away where they need to be. Getting ourselves into a pleasant routine can help us to feel a little more in control, especially when everything around us seem to be in chaos. Working hard at something is an excellent way to reduce any stress in our lives right now, as focusing on the practical is the perfect solution to feeling emotionally scattered or shattered. If you have pets, they may be needing more attention now, which is all good as the love they give will help settle down our worries. For some folks health issues could be on the agenda, making this an excellent time for a check up, or for getting serious about exercise and a healthy diet. And for some, too much STRESS will take a toll on the physical body, listen to what your body tells you now regarding its health, this is an excellent time to do some tweaking regarding those mysterious aches and pains. 
  • Adults with a strong mars or Aries influence may be acting more like children than adults. 
  • Some of us could be more insensitive or appear more selfish to others. And others may be feeling overly sensitive… if you are in a relationship, try not to say too much or get into a discussion re: sensitive emotional issues, unless you are sure you are both on the “same page”. 
  • This moon may be positive for: Buying for speculation, collection on debts, Hair cut (for less hair growth) and starting a diet
  • If you aren’t looking to enlarge your family right now, take care, Aries has a lot of sexual energy to utilize… 😉
  • The Moon in Aries will have a slight effect on all of us, but it will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts: Along with those who have a strong Libra placement in their charts
    • Moon in Aries:
    • Sun in Aries:
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
    • Moon in Virgo
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in the 6th house
    • Moon in the 1st house

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Aquarius.. November 2017

 Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs - Aquarius Stock Vector - 40977554
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Natalia Hubbert
  • Date: November 23 (ET) 5:59 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius 
  • Moon Quarter: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: November 25 9:37 pm(ET) 6:37 pm (PT) to moon into Pisces in on Sunday 26th. Aquarius Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now. 
  • House(s): 4th/5th: house of domestic & nurturing: House of pets, children, entertainment, speculation:
  • Opportunity Period: November 25 1:13 pm (ET) 10:13 am (PT) to v/c moon. Good for working and or playing at night. 

 

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…if you are o.k. with change, it’s possible to make long-term plan changes now..
  • Could be a good time for inventions, putting pen to paper is more appropriate at this time,  instead of going full steam ahead with concrete plans. 
  • In the 4th house: The moon is in the last little bit of the 4th house, so the influence may not be too strong.. Focus will be on domestic duties and our responsiblity towards our loved ones. 
  • In the 5th house: Time for some fun with kids and our furry friends… But don’t let them get the better of you.. ;). This is a great time to indulge in a creative hobby, it’s easy to get lots done and/or to come up with fabulous ideas. If you are thinking of taking a risk, likely to do with a career move… if you think of all the pro’s and con’s and know what you are getting involved in (or leaving behind) it could be a positive time to take that “risk”. 
  • 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. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: Joining a club, borrowing money, fixing cars, hair care (colors and chemical treatments), moving, painting, pouring cement, starting a new job or new construction. 
  • Note**Uranus in Aries is in retrograde motion. 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. 
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Moon in the 5 th house
  • Moon in Leo (to a lessor extent)
  • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Any aspects to the Moon or the sun . 
  • Those who have a strong Leo or Aquarius chart influence.
