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… 🙂
Sagittarius can be blunt, 😦 it’s good to keep in mind that others may be more sensitive… 🙂
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 of siblings and day-to-day affairs. This could be a busy few days for some of us… if you are an emotional sort, it’s probably not a good idea to put yourself around harsher folks…dealings with siblings may be on the agenda and there could be a lot of chatting going on…take care to try and listen to what others are saying, as it’s very easy to get carried away with hearing ourselves speak… A short get away could be in the cards for some… Phone calls, emails and communications are on the agenda… it’s a good time to put pen to paper if you are a writer, and if not, it’s just as good a time as any to write in that journal… 🙂
The moon in Sagittarius may be good for: Borrowing money, buying a vehicle, sending mail or starting a diet.
While this moon will have a slight effect on all of us… those with the following in their charts will feel it stronger as will those who have a strong Gemini or Cancer placement in their charts.
Moon in Sagittarius
Jupiter in Sagittarius
Moon in the 3rd or 9th house
Ascendant in Sagittarius
Mid-heaven in Sagittarius
Sun in Sagittarius
Aspects to the Moon and Jupiter.
Those who have a strong Gemini influence in their chart
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.
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.
