Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury into Taurus March 2017

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves into a new Sign

New Sign: Taurus

Date: March 31 2017

 

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Taurus is about security, feeling good and enjoying the pleasures of the senses. She is sensual and “demands” comfort and is the happiest when she has savings put away for a rainy day. Money is important because it brings about the lifestyle and comfort needed.  Having a secure roof over one’s head is a must to reduce every day stress.

  • We can be slower at coming up with solutions to our every day issues, but solutions will be found if we give ourselves time enough to find them.
  • It is far better to put our minds to learning one thing well, then it is to trying to learn a little about a lot of things. Taurus doesn’t like being rushed, and she doesn’t learn well if she is.
  • Our finances may be in focus, and we may feel the need to pull out our paper work, to talk to our bank managers or financial advisors. It’s not so much of a worry, but more of a nagging sense of getting such things in order, so we can get the most out of our budget.
  • Shopping might be on the agenda for some, but it may not go as planned, finding that perfect outfit may be a challenge, but as with all things Taurus.. patience  can win out in the end… 🙂
  • We could find we are struggling a bit between wanting to feel fit and healthy and that pull towards doing just a little too much relaxing, especially those of us still the last grips of winter.. However, we are all encouraged to get  up and move, who knows some of us may be introduced to an exercise regime we can handle.
  • While Taurus loves her comfort foods, it is a good time to try and figure out a healthier diet, don’t go crazy though, as that may be a deterrent, start by cutting down on the “sin foods” a little bit at a time… add more greens and salads…
  • Common Sense rules the day under this influence, indicating it can be a good time to get down to business… clean out the cupboards, get paperwork in order, go to bed at a decent time, stick to routines, and get the chores done…
  • Watch out for being overly stubborn  just for the sake of being stubborn… be aware of your motives and why you might be saying no… don’t miss out on great opportunities just because you are grumpy or feel better in your jammies then having to get dressed and go outside and mingle.
  • For folks with personal fire signs in their charts, this might turn out to be a bit of a bumpy ride as you will have to refrain from being so impatient.. you won’t win against the strong Taurus influence… Give your slower thinking family, co-workers and friends a break for the next few weeks…Mercury goes Retrograde in April and will move back into the Fire sign of Aries

  • Date: March 31
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 1st (still time to begin a new project/idea)
  • Void-of-Course: April 2 10:43 am(ET) 7:43 am (PT)
  • House(s) 9th house of, higher learning and travel, new experiences, publishing, advertising politics, religion and philosophy.
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Gemini is an air sign and needs lots of stimuli. She is ruled by Mercury. Mercury turns direct on January 8th but will still be in his “storm” until January 14…. remain vigilant until then, as plans can still go in the opposite direction you were intending.
  • The house connected to Gemini is the 3rd house of: day-to-day travel/affairs and siblings… we could find ourselves busy with multiple things going on, even if they are just in our own minds… 😉 Dealings with family, especially siblings, are likely. Memories are shared and possible solutions to old problems can be found. However, wait until after the Mercury Retrograde before putting any new ideas or plans into motion. 
  • We may find we are trying to do multiple things at once, which may not go exactly as we may have planned. If you do find you have tons of ideas spinning around in your head, take pen to paper and jot them down… it will ease the “inside chatter” and you may find some of them useful later on. 
  • Could be lots of chit chatting going on, and some of us may have to make a concerted effort to listen instead of chat.
  • Caution is advised when doing up letters, emails and relaying messages, as much as we may think we have it right, it’s better to check one more time
  • In the 9th house: A Busy time for some folks, plans could be in the making for travel
  • A new study could be on the cards for some of us.. and it will likely be approached with enthusiasm. 
  • If it’s possible to go on vacation now, grab the chance, you might learn more than you could have ever imagined… 🙂 
  • It’s a good time to get those lists and notes made up… we can feel good about putting pen to paper now.
  • Boredom may be at our door step and we may feel more restless than usual. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
        • Sun in Gemini
        • Moon in Gemini
        • Moon in the 3rd house
        • Moon in 9th house
        • Moon in Sagittarius
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Jupiter

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 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  (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:  March 29
  • Moon Sign: Taurus: 
  • Moon Phase: 1st (still a good time to begin new projects or chart new ideas)
  • Void-of-Course: March 30 7:12 pm (ET) 4:12pm (PT) : Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 7th: 7th house of relationships and partnerships…
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Taurus needs emotional and material security, so we may find we are more interested in our financial affairs.
  • This may prove to be a good time to make investments for the future or to begin plans for the next financially responsible phase.
  • Taurus has lots of patience, indicating this could be a good time to deal with people/projects/situations that take up more time than is liked.
  • Things that give us pleasure, such as comfort foods, wine, relaxing, good music and giving/receiving “loving’s” are all things we may enjoy right now
  • Some of us may be feeling more frugal than usual, preferring to save our funds instead of spend them.
  • Take your time when the moon is in this sign, there is no need to hurry, and you probably won’t get very far if you do… so sit back and enjoy the ride… 🙂
  • In the 7th house: Focus will be on relationships and partnerships… perhaps some reminiscing about the past and the folks you have spent time with. Some folks may do some “personal work” regarding their approach to close personal relationships. Mercury is still retrograde, indicating a reassessment  of present relationships, however, assessment only is advised, any changes should be delayed until Mercury and Mars are back on track again.
  • For some folks 7th house issues may be on the agenda… these will relate to relationships and partnerships.
  • Keep your temper under check if you can, Taurus is very, very patient and it takes a lot to make her angry, but watch out once she has had enough, she will certainly let you know..
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Libra
    • Moon in Libra
    • Moon in the 2nd house
    • Moon in the 7th house
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
  • Those with strong Libra, Taurus and or Venus placements in their charts may also be effected.
**NOTE** Venus, which rules Taurus is still in retrograde motion under this moon. Past financial issue may come up again… this can give some of us the opportunity to review our finances, job placements and self-worth… our security regarding these issues may be on the agenda… Changes may occur in these area’s (also with relationship/partnership area’s) which are beyond our control… Some of us may decide it’s the right time to make changes happen…

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: March 27
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 4th moves into the 1st on the 28th hold off on new projects till then if you can.
  • Void-off-Course: March 29 8:07 am (ET) 5:07 am (PT) to Moon into Taurus: 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 service, health, duty.
  • Opportunity Period: None

**Note** The New Moon happens in Aries March 27 2017.

The influence of the Aries moon will be stronger. Take extra care when driving, and those who suffers from headaches may need to stay away from their triggers for a day or two. Some of us may be more impatient than usual, so try and stay away from folk and situations that will irritate you or bring out the aggressor in you.

If you have extra energy or feel restless try doing something physical, sex, exercise, walking, or playing a sport. Pent up energy is likely to come up negatively if coupled with impatience. The new moon is traditionally the time to start new projects, new business and new relationships.. it’s a time to move into that first place and maybe for some of to enter into the work force for the 1st time.. however, the moon is still in the 4th quarter (endings) … so hang on until March 28th when she moves into the 1st quarter if you can, to start anything new. 

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: Being of service to others may come easier than usual, some of us may actually enjoy it. work can be more fulfilling but take care not to take on too much at once. We may find time spent with our pets more relaxing. If you are feeling stressed, go out for a nice relaxing walk, it will ease your mind and it’s good for the body too.
  • 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.
  • 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 Virgo or Libra placement in their charts
    • Moon in Aries:
    • Sun in Aries:
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in the 6th:
    • Moon in Virgo
