  • Date: January 7 @ 3:53 am (ET) @ 12:53 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: January 8 @ 8:59 pm (ET) @ 5:59 pm (PT) to moon into Sagittarius on Saturday the 9th.  
  • Opportunity Period: January 7 @ 3:17 pm (ET) @ 12:16 pm (PT) to moon void of course on the 8th. This is good for Intuitive work and to complete ongoing projects.

  • Scorpio is very intense and probably the most sensitive of the zodiac signs. She is ruled by Pluto now, but was once considered to be ruled by Mars… she likely retains some of the Martian influence. 
  • The moon relates to our emotions, indicating we could be feeling everything more deeply for the next couple of days
  • We can immerse ourselves in our projects now. 
  • Watch for becoming obsessed with someone or something…. not everyone falls for someone or something at the same time and patience may be needed regarding sensitive relationship matters
  • Be sure that your partner, friend, lover, co-worker or school friend is really trying to upset your personal apple cart before making waves
  • We could be encouraged or directed towards taking risks or doing things we wouldn’t normally do, especially those of a group or team nature. 
  • Sex may be high on the agenda for some of us… so if you don’t want to help the world population grow right now use caution… 🙂 
  • Some of us may be highly creative right now, while others may find it easy to get connected to their psychic side… 
  • Secrets may be told now… we can be enticed to open up to others about our deepest feelings/fantasy’s… it’s a good idea to drink with trusted friends under this influence, opening up to the “wrong” person, now may be bring challenges in the future. 
  • Good for Moon in Scorpio: Advertise to sell personal possessions, Buy antiques, Move house or business, plant bulbs or seeds (3rd or 4th quarter moon):
  • While we will all be effected slightly by the Scorpio moon, she will have a greater effect on those who have the following in their charts.. and those who have a strong Aries or Taurus or Mars placement in their charts.  
    • Moon in Scorpio 
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in the 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, Mars or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

  • NOTES: Mars recently moved into the sign of Taurus, which is the opposite sign to Scorpio… Mars is the old ruler of Scorpio. 
  • NOTES (2): Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation and technology moves into the sign of Aquarius. Our thoughts may be focused on inventions, the unique, humanitarian issues and our hobbies… Changes in the transportation and the world of Technology are possible… Any changes that do occur during this influence may come about seemingly “out of the blue”. Mercury in Aquarius will affect us all, however, those with the following will feel the effects the most: 
  • Mercury in Aquarius
  • Mercury in the 11th house
  • Mercury in the 3rd or 6th house
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • NOTES (3): Venus, the planet of love, relationships and money moves into the sign of Capricorn. We could be more serious about our relationships… However, take care with your relationships, while you may be feeling more serious about the future with a particular person, it is possible that they might not be on the same page as you… Especially if they have strong Sagittarius or Aquarius chart influences… This placement may be good for business relationships or dealings… Take care of the budget, we could spend money on items that we don’t really need. 


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… The moon stays with each sign 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-off-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 Paula Belluomini & 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.
