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 9th house: Some of us may be feeling a little restless under this moon, and our routine may be boring… Listen and learn… Chat and share your knowledge… It’s easier to get “into” a new subject of study now… If you are going away for a few days, it could turn out to be a fun and educational time… 
  • 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:

  • Moon in Aries:Sun in Aries:
  • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
  • Mars in Aries:
  • Moon in the 9th house:
  • Aspects to the Moon or Mars:
  • Those who have a strong Sagittarius or Libra placement in their charts:
  • ***May 1st is the celebration of Beltane for our Pagan family members… we wish you all a safe and joyous celebration. 🥂Check out our previous post on Beltane (with Patti Wiggington) by clicking HERE
  • ***May 1st is also known as MAY DAY

The Moon and Astrology


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 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. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
