The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting Moon In Leo August 2018

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  August 9 @ 9:18 pm (PT) August 10 @ 12: 18 am (ET)
  • ****NEW (super) MOON Saturday 11th**** ***Partial Solar Eclipse***
  • Moon Sign: Leo ♌
  • Moon Phase: 4th moves into the 1st on Sunday the 12th
  • Void-off-Course:  August 11 @ 5:58 am (ET) 2:58 am (PT) to Virgo Moon just before midnight: *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s):. 10th house of public image, career/work/vocation
  • Opportunity Period:

What does it all mean?

  • The Leo Moon Loves Drama, so be warned… 
  • The Leo Moon loves to noticed and recognized, so be prepared to “pump up” your loved ones and if you happened to have a Leo influence in yourself, be aware of how you may be going about getting recognized or appreciated… If you play your cards right this could be a positive time when you get to be where you need to be.
  • Try not to be overly “vain” and be prepared for drama at any-time from any direction
  • Try not to over react and if it’s not you doing the over reacting, try not to get caught up in the drama, or to encourage the over reactor
  • It’s a good time to check out the local talent, take in a down town show, get starry-eyed with your lover, or perhaps look for a new one, as romance is high on the priority ladder during this time. 
  • Might prove positive for hair cuts, make overs. 
  • This may be a positive time for: Beauty treatments: Borrowing money: Buying a home: Entertaining Guests: Fixing Cars: Hair Cut (For thickness): Moving: Mowing the Law (to retard growth): Painting: Pouring Cement: Starting new construction: Starting a new job: 
  • This moon period will affect everyone, but more so those who have the following in their charts:
  • Moon in Leo:
  • Sun in Leo:  
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 10th house 
  • Aspects to the moon or the Sun
  •  Those who have a strong Aquarius placement in their charts may also feel this moon’s influence more than others.

The New Moon is traditionally the best time to begin anything new… wait until the moon moves into the first phase on Sunday the 12th of August if you can… Keep in mind that Uranus, the planet of shock and change is currently in retrograde motion in the 7th house of relationship and partnerships… which may have an impact on new relationships… see our post on Uranus Retrograde… 🙂 This new moon will have a Leo influence with a touch of Virgo… (Drama and Detail) 🙂 This is a special new moon, due to the partial solar eclipse, may be a good time to explore what’s in your heart… it’s an intense energy, eating lightly, getting enough rest and rescheduling any major events is recommended. 🙂 This months New Moon is also known as a SuperMoon: 

  • When the Full Moon occurs during the Moon’s closest approach to Earth, its perigee, it appears larger and brighter in the sky. This phenomenon is often called a supermoon.
  • A Supermoon can be a New or a Full Moon.

  • New Moon at perigee is also often referred to as a supermoon. However, this event usually garners less attention because a New Moon is invisible from Earth

The Moon and Astrology

How it affects our daily lives… 

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 is not 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.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus retrograde August 7 2018

Planet Glyphs Button - Uranus Stock Photo - 350564
http://www.13rf.com: Copyright : Johnny Lye

 

  • Astrological “Event” Uranus Retrograde 
  • Date: August 7 2018 into 2019
  • Time: 12:48 pm (ET) 9:48 am (PT)
  • House (equal): 7th Relationships
  • Sign: Taurus

While this astrological “event” will have a slight effect on all of us, it will have a stronger, and longer lasting effect on those who have the following in their charts: 

  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Ascendant in Aquarius
  • Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Uranus in 7th or 11th house
  • Uranus in Libra
  • Uranus in 2nd house (lessor effect, unless Taurus is strong in the chart)
  • Sun in Libra (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Taurus (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Leo (lesser effect)
  • Uranus in Leo (lessor effect)
  • Any aspects to Uranus

What does it all mean?

  • Uranus is the planet of shock, change and rebellion. He rules Aquarius. 
  • Retrograde, Uranus “appears” to be going backwards from the earth’s perspective. A good time to re-do, re-invent re-assess. 
  • Taurus is about material and emotional security… She is ruled by Venus… She takes her time and can have oodles of patience, but she has her limits… 
  • Some folks could feel slightly off kilter, as Uranus pushes us towards taking chances, making changes and moving on with our lives… Taurus on the other hand, may prefer to stay just where she is and let “nature take its course” 
  • Changes may be on the horizon, especially regarding close and or everyday relationships… 
  • While changes may seem to be unexpected, they have probably been brewing for a while
  • It can be a good time to act on ideas that have been in the making, (Keep in mind that Mercury is still in retrograde motion until August 18/19 and will be in storm until the 24th)
  • We have a better chance of “seeing outside of the box”… lets open up our eyes and our minds to new thoughts, opinions and solutions
  • Erratic and or rebellious behaviour may be noted in some partners… likely not harmful, however, probably highly surprising
  • Restlessness in some relationships… 
  • Feeling bored with, or no longing connected to, certain partnerships
  • New relationships can happen, but keep in mind, you may be attracted to the uniqueness of the person/situation and may gloss over less desirable traits… are you looking for a  long-term or short-term relationship? Unions happening now have a higher chance of being short-lived. 
  • Relationship/Partnership break ups, separations and divorce’s can happen now. 
  • Finances may be slim, extra or up and down… For those who like to spend, and the budget is tight, it’s best to put a hold on the funds that you have, until things get brighter… the urge to spend could be strong…as could the urge to save…. It will all depend on the individual chart… A strong Taurus will likely prompt savings, where as a strong Aquarius may prompt a rebellious or a “devil-may-care attitude” towards money.

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Iurii Kuzo
  • Astrological Event: Transiting Venus moves into the sign of Libra

  • Date: August 6 to September 10 2018

What Does It Mean? 

  • Venus is the planet of beauty and money, She is the Feminine opposite to Mars
  • She rules Libra and Taurus
  • Venus and Libra are happy together, they get along, Venus understands Libra’s need for harmony and Libra enjoys the beauty of Venus… 
  • Relationship issues will go easier with Venus here, negotiations will be smoother and hopefully solutions can be found to ongoing relationship challenges. (***This influence may help the Uranus retrograde motion where sorting through challenging relationships is concerned)*** 
  • Some folks get engaged under this influence… (Keep in mind the Uranus retrograde)
  • If you are looking for professional advice regarding your money, an accountant should be able to point you in the right direction, although banking and investment issues, can, and perhaps should, be left until Venus visits with Scorpio… 
  • Compromises can be reached during this time, it doesn’t matter if everyone doesn’t see eye to eye on everything, pick out the things you can compromise on and make your changes there. 
  • Some folk may need to watch their spending habits now, it’s very easy to be swayed by all the sparkles and beautiful things out there… 🙂 
  • Watch out for the charmers, because they may be even more convincing now… works well for those who need to get noticed in order to move ahead with plans. 
  • Those in the entertainment industry and who have a Leo influence in their charts, may look even more beautiful than usual under this influence… getting a new role or two could be on the agenda… 🙂 
  • Everyone will be affected by this influence … However, folks who have the following in their charts will feel the “Venus effect” stronger: 
  • Sun in Libra
  • Sun in Taurus
  • Venus in Libra
  • Moon in Libra
  • Moon in Taurus
  • Venus in the 7th house
  • Venus in the 12 th house
  • Aspects to Venus
  • Midheaven in Libra or Taurus
  • Ascendant in Libra or Taurus

The Moon and Astrology; How it affects our daily life; Transiting Moon in Gemini August 2018

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac sign Gemini on a background of the starry sky with the scheme of stars in the constellation, vector illustration Stock Vector - 37150664

  • Date: August 5 @9:32 pm (ET) @6:32 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 4th:
  • Void-of-Course: August 7 3:54 am (ET) 12:54 am (PT) to moon in Cancer later in the evening
  • House(s) 8th of shared money matters, Insurance, rejuvenation, death, extremes and crisis situations (equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: None

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. 
  • 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 
  • 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. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: buying a vehicle, entertaining guests, hair cut (for less growth), join a club, send mail, and mow the lawn to retard growth. 
  • 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 (equal)
        • Moon in the 8th house (equal)
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Pluto
        • Those who have a strong Sagittarius influence in their chart
  • ***Mercury is presently in the sign of LeoMercury rules Gemini (and Virgo)… Those with personal planets in Gemini (especially the moon) may experience some Leo type thinking, drama, or acting… 😉***
