Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: January 17 2017 around 6:am (ET)
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: January 19 Early in the am to around 5pm:  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: January 18 late at night to early morning morning of January 19… Good for night owls.. 🙂

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.
      • **Moon in Libra,
      • **Sun in Libra,
      • **Venus in Libra
      • **Venus in Pisces
      •  Moon in 12th house
      • **Moon in 7th house,
      • **Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
      • **Midheaven in Libra
      • **Ascendant in Libra

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.

Mars action, Lilith Grand water Trine, Jan. 16-22


thanks to Tara Green for the following very interesting and informative post… 🙂 Have a fabulous week folks… stay true to you and let peace pave the way….

Tara Greene,Tarot Reader, Astrology, Psychic and everything you need

I know its the big inauguration coming up in the U.S. on the 20th and I will get around to that too.

MARS is the big mover and shaker all this week. But in Pisces his energy is internal, submerged, unconscious, weak.

Monday Jan 16 MARS conjuncts CHIRON in PISCES at night in EST and PST/ Jan 17 GMT

I am feeling this one. There is a blue, tired, bored, ennui, vulnerable, overwhelmed, anemic, floating, over sensitive, powerlessness, exhausted, sadness, endings, draining, is that all there is? to this energy.  Rest, let go, cry, go within, dream a lot. Talk to the whales and dolphins, surrender to the flow. It is an ending phase. Energy is low.   Mars is underwater in Pisces. His energy is working unconsciously under the surface. For firey types Aries Leo Sagittarius your energy has been low. This is NOT time to push ahead. You…

  • Date: January 14 2017 10:52 pm (ET)  (v/c ends)
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: January 16 late into the night (PT): January 17 In the wee hours of the morning (ET) Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11th: 11th house of teamwork, networking, gadgets and humanitarian behavior.
  • Opportunity Period: January 16 late afternoon, ends around 9 pm (ET): Good for work or play 🙂

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: Team work and co-operation within group activities is indicted. For some folk being emotionally distant can be easier now.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Venus in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th and or 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury.
  • Midheaven in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • And those who have a strong Aquarius placement in their charts..

  • Capricorn is disciplined and career/vocational minded, she is and earth sign ruled by Saturn the planet of restriction and is connected to the 10th house, she is connected to the bones and teeth. 
  • Earth signs are solid, can be dependable and connected to the earth. They can also be stubborn and appear emotionally detached. 
  • Our thoughts may turn to matters of career or the direction we would like our career to be going in. 
  • We may think more about our duties, especially ones relating to our family, parents and grandparents. 
  • Our thoughts might be slower than usual. However, our mind should be able to grasp subjects about commerce and numbers. 
  • Being decisive should come easier to most of us and will definitely be of help to those with Libra/Venus influences. 
  • Be aware of feeling pessimistic or of viewing issues in a pessimistic manner… There is usually a solution to most things.
  • Being practical or coming up with doable solutions is highly probable right now.
  • Some folk may be tempted to put a price on just about anything and everything right now.. take care that emotions don’t get caught up in this mind-set though. 
  • Take advantage of this time to “climb the corporate ladder” study for new career options, or find that “perfect” job.

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


Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

vector Illustration of leo zodiac sign Stock Vector - 37195743
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : chizhovao
  • Date: January 12 2017
  • Moon Sign: Leo
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-off-Course: January 14, mid morning to 11 pm: Leo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 10th & 11th: 10th house of responsibility, career, social standing. 11th house of friends, groups, team and humanitarian work.
  • 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 10th house: For some of us focus will be on our jobs and career’s, and this may be a positive time for folk who are looking for work, so stay open to possibilities and watch for opportunities. Behave while in social/business situations. Those who have families may need to keep their work at work, when it comes to family time. 
  • In the 11th house. Joining in with group or team work can feel totally natural now, even to those of us who are more of the solitary types. Charity fund raiser and events can appeal to the general public, making this a good time to set up such events. 
  • 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 10th house
    • Moon in the 11th house
    • Moon in the 5th house 
    • Aspects to the moon, sun or Uranus
  •  Those who have a strong Capricorn or Aquarius placement in their charts may also feel this moon’s influence more than others. 

 

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 is not 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.
