The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Taurus August 2020
Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:
Date: August 9 @ 9:28 pm (ET) 6:28 pm (PT)
Moon Sign: Taurus:
Moon Phase: 3rd
Void-of-Course: August 12 @ 3:55 am (ET) @ 12:55 am (PT) to moon into Gemini a few hours later. Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
Opportunity Period: August 11 @ 12:45 pm (ET) 9:45 am (PT) to moon into Gemini. The moon moves into the last quarter on this day also, making this opportunity time perfect for finishing up our projects.
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… 🙂
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..
The Moon in Taurus may be good for the following:
Beauty Treatments, (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Buying Clothes (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Advertise to sell personal possessions:
Buying a home (better if the moon is in the 1st quarter):
Fix Cars (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Hair Cut for thickness: (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Pour Cement (better if the moon is in the 1st quarter):
Start new construction (better if the moon is in the 1st quarter):
Start a new job (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Start a savings account (better if the moon is in the 1st or 2nd quarter):
Start training a pet (better if the moon is in the 1st quarter).
This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. Those with strong Scorpio placements in their charts will also be effected.
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.
Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
