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.
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.
Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:
- Date: January 16 2015 to January 18 2015
- Moon Sign: Sagittarius at 4:55 pm 3:01 am (ET) 12:01 am (PT)
- Moon Phase: 4th quarter
- Void-off-Course: Yes: 2:25 pm (ET) 11:25 am (PT) 01/17/2015: Moon v/c in Sagittarius is one of the 4 void off course “good signs” (see above).
- House: 3rd: House of communication, short journeys, day-to-day affairs and siblings.
- Opportunity Period: Yes: 1:27 pm (ET) 10:27 am (PT): This opp period is good for playing, having fun and laughter.
What does it all mean?
- Sagittarius is the most “easy-going” of the fire signs and is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet”
- We are going to want our personal freedom now, so take care partners who have a possessive or jealous tendencies, they might not be tolerated for the next couple of days.
- Because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet” we may be feeling luckier then usual… Just take care not to go over the budget… 🙂
- We could have more energy for fun things such as music, sports and shows
- It’s easier to try something new and exciting just take care not to get carried away.
- Could be a good time to take a few days for rest, relaxation and laughter
- Good time for day dreaming and making fantastic plans for the future.
- In the 3rd house: Our focus may turn to our day-to-day activities, perhaps we will feel its time to sign up for a new exercise program or study class, as long as it’s fun of course. Siblings may be in the picture for the next couple of days. Catch up on emails and phone calls.
- While this moon will have a slight effect on all of us… those with the following in their charts will feel it stronger
- Moon in Sagittarius
- Jupiter in Sagittarius
- Moon in 3rd house
- Moon in the 9th house
- Sun in Sagittarius
- Aspects to the Moon and Jupiter.
