  • Date: April 25 @ 3:20am (ET) @ 12:20am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini: 
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: April 27 @ 1:00 pm (ET) 10:00 am (PT) to moon into Cancer about 1/2 an later. VOC Moon in Gemini is NOT one of the “good” VOC signs.
  • Opportunity Period: April 26 @ 6:32 pm (ET) @ 3:31 pm (PT) to VOC Moon on the 27th. A “foggy” start to this opportunity period, which should present clearer thinking as the day moves on.


Pluto goes retrograde on Saturday April 25th @ 2:54 pm (ET) @ 11:54 am (PT). He remains in Retrograde motion until the beginning of October.

Changes in an area of life that is active in your chart are likely… However, some of these changes won’t happen all at once. Some folks may experience an event, or a situation that brings about realization that a change needs to occur. This in turn prompts research and conversation in how to excute the change.. There may also be times when we think a situation is completed, only to find it appearing once again, demanding attention…

The next few months will be about seeing things as they truly are, being honest with oneself, being aware of our power, yet not letting it define us… Whatever crisis comes along now, is unlikely to be resloved all at once… Patience, understanding and compromise may be required…

Those who have a strong Pluto or Scorpio chart influence, may feel the effects of this movement more than the rest of us… 🙂


What does it all mean?

  • Gemini is an air sign and needs lots of stimuli. She is ruled by Mercury. 
  • 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
  • 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. 
  • With the moon in Gemini in the 1st quarter it may be good for: Entertaining Guests, Joining a club and sending mail.
  • 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 Sagittarius
        • Any aspects to the Moon, Mercury or Jupiter

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-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. 

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