  • Domestic chores and responsibilities may be easier to do now, in fact some of us may be very happy making our home comfortable and safe
  • Cooking may be fun to do now,  so go ahead and try out that new recipe
  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offense or feel slighted or more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised though, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some of us may feel needy, while others of us are happy to be the needed, helping our loved ones feel secure. Caution is advised that some of us can go over board on the needy thing during this moon period, so be careful if you don’t want to “scare” someone off… 
  • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
  • This may also be a good time to do some tidy up and mini reno’s on the house.

  • Moon in the 4th house:

NOTES:  April 19th:

Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury symbol

Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation and technology, moves into the sign of Taurus: Taurus is ruled by Venus, the planet of money and love. Because Mercury is the “thinking planet” and Taurus can be slow on the uptake… some of us may experience times where we can’t get our thoughts connected to our mouth, tripping us up a bit when we try to express ourselves.. Others, may find some direction or instruction confusing, while others still, may have challenges when it comes to learning something new… This doesn’t mean we are “behind the times” , it just means we need to be patient with ourselves, and speak up when we don’t understand something… 🙂 And those who have a quick mind may need to show patience towards the rest of us 😉 Because Taurus is ruled by Venus, some folks can be more charming in speech and in general, which can give these folks a “leg up” when it comes to getting what they want. Watch for obsessive tendencies, and stubbornness.

Note 2: April 19:

The Sun enters the sign of Taurus… (Both Mercury and the Sun are now in the same sign). Taurus as noted above, is ruled by the planet Venus, he is connected to the 2nd house of finances and material security. The Taurus Sun brings about common sense, a desire for comfort and most of all the feeling of security that comes with having our OWN stuff and people around us, including a secure, comfy and safe place to reside. Think of the Bull, as you think of the Taurus folk, the bull is strong, cautious in movement, and can be immoveable when the notion takes him, he can be steady and relied upon to do the tough work… 😉

Happy Birthday to all Taurus folk celebrating, we have had a very challenging 14 months with COVID, SGC folk therefor send out extra well wishes to all, and sincerely hope you have super duper birthday despite the times.. 

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  

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 Paula Belluomini astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods and dates.
