  • Date: June 22 @ 8:55 am (ET) @ 5:55 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Sagittarius 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: June 23 @ 10:09 pm (ET) @ 7:09 pm (PT) to moon into Capricorn on the 24th:  Moon v/c in Sagittarius is one of the 4 void of course  “good signs”.
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

    • Sagittarius is the most “easy-going” of the fire signs and is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet”
    • We are going to want our personal freedom now, so take care partners who have a possessive or jealous tendencies, they might not be tolerated for the next couple of days. 
    • Because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet” we may be feeling luckier then usual… Just take care not to go over the budget… 🙂 *See Neptune note below*
    • We could have more energy for fun things such as music, sports and shows. If you are now “allowed” to participate in such activities, have a blast 🙂 
    • It’s easier to try something new and exciting just take care not to get carried away.
    • Could be a good time to take a few days for rest, relaxation and laughter
    • Good time for day dreaming and making fantastic plans for the future.
    • The next few days may be positive for: Borrowing money, Buying a car, sending mail or starting a diet. 
    • While this moon will have a slight effect on all of us… those with the following in their charts will feel it stronger as will those who have a strong Gemini placement in their charts. 
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Jupiter in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 9th house
  • Ascendant in Sagittarius
  • Mid-heaven in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Aspects to the Moon, Venus and Jupiter.

NOTES: Pluto the Planet that rules Scorpio, is secretive, mystical and a little bit “off the wall” 😉 He is powerful where ever he lands in your chart… Pluto is one of the slowest moving of the planets, he spends a lot of time in one sign and is therefor referred to as a “generational planet” as he affects a generation of people… 🙂 On April 27 Pluto turns retrograde, he stays retrograde until the beginning of October… It is unlikely that a Pluto retrograde motion will affect anyone greatly, however, those with strong Pluto chart influences may find some life area’s a little more challenging for the next few months… The best way to handle any retrograde planetary influences is to “go with the flow” don’t expect miracles and be prepared to do things over again.. Patience is the key, the retrograde motion can be a blessing in a disguise. 

NOTE 2: Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury symbolMercury, the planet of communication, transportation and technology turns Direct on June 22nd, However, he remains in “storm” until July 1st. It should be getting easier to commute our needs, and any transportation or technology issues, should be closer to getting resolved. Because Mercury remains in “storm” until July 1st, care should be taken regarding any long term commitments agreed upon before July 1st. Mercury’s influence can have an effect on everyone, however, those with strong Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius (the moon is now in Sagittarius) or Pisces chart influences may feel the effects more.

**NOTE 3**: planet-glyph-jupiter-380x235[1]Jupiter, the planet of expansion and “luck” turned retrograde on June 20th. He will remain in retrograde motion until Mid October. His influence becomes personal when there is a strong Jupiter chart influence, such as the Sun, Moon or Mercury being in the sign that Jupiter rules, which is Sagittarius. When a planet goes retrograde it’s like when your house gets turned upside down because you haven’t been able to organize and sort it the way you would like. We are slightly muddled and may have a challenge seeing the whole picture and plans that we make don’t turn out the way we had hoped. In the case of a Jupiter retrograde, because he is such a happy and positive planet some of us may face frustrations or set backs in areas where we thought we had everything under control… Some folks may have a tough time sticking to a diet, and while the Jupiter/Sagittarius energy loves sports, getting in our exercise could also be a challenge… As with all retrograde planetary movements, our best bet is to be patient and go with the flow as much as we can. You can find out which area of life may be affected by the Jupiter retrograde, by checking the connections made in the house where the transiting Jupiter retrograde falls within your own personal chart. 


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.

  • Date: June 15 @ 11:02 pm (ET) @ 8:02 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: June 17 @ 11:54 pm (ET) @ 8:54 pm (PT) to moon into Libra on the 18th. Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Virgo is all about the details, so be prepared to see to them or at least have someone else see to them for you, you will feel better 🙂 
  • Try not to worry about things you have no control over, especially things that might not ever happen… Because Virgo “see’s” all the details others miss, it’s hard for her not to worry… 
  • It’s good to keep busy during a Virgo moon, make lists, tidy, organize, plan, find solutions to problems… a lot can get done now
  • Virgo can be more critical than the rest of the zodiac, but only because she needs things to be “correct” or “perfect”. Try to give yourself and other’s, a break over the next couple of days. If you are an employer, be prepared that tasks may not get completed exactly they way you had expected.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Pisces placement in their charts..
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th 
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury. (Mercury in Gemini is retrograde until June 22)
  • Midheaven in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mercury in Virgo

  • Date: June 8 @ 2:47 pm (ET) @ 11:47 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: June 10th @ 1:38 pm (ET) @ 10:38 am (PT) to moon into Cancer early morning on the 11th
  • Opportunity Period: None

  • NOTES: NEW MOON/SOLAR ECLIPSE: June 10th @ 6:53 am (ET) @ 3:53 am (PT). In the sign of Gemini. Set your intensions for the month ahead… take care to be specific.. the Eclipse may make the new moon energy more “magical” so be sure what it is that you “ask” for. 
  • The Solar Eclipse can sometimes indicate stressors that contribute to or “demand” change/adjustment, which may present some difficult challenges. A concentrated effort at compromise is recommended.
  • Changes may be afoot in the communications area, neighbours and siblings may be on the agenda.
  • This New Moon/Solar Eclipse will affect us all but will affect the following signs most: Gemini: Virgo: Sagittarius: Pisces. 
  • Check your chart to see what house/life area the Solar Eclipse/New Moon occurs, it will be in this area that you will be most affected. 

NOTES 2: Mercury is currently in retrograde motion in the sign of Gemini. 


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 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
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Jupiter
        • Those who have a strong Sagittarius influence in their chart

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Aries…June 2021

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac sign - Aries Stock Photo - 44449990
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Vadim Sadovski
  • Date: June 3 @ 1:59 pm (ET) @ 10:59 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-off-Course: June 5 @ 6:47 pm (ET) @ 3:47 pm (PT) to moon into Taurus late on the 5th (PT) Early morning on the 6th (ET): Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Aries is action, he is the most masculine of the Zodiac signs as he is ruled by the planet Mars
  • We should have slightly more get up and go when the moon is in Aries
  • We are happy to defend our loved ones
  • We are apt to speak up more, even those of us who consider themselves to be “timid” can find the voice they need right now. 
  • May be a good time to get your message across or to ask for what you need
  • Be careful when driving especially when upset or angry
  • We may be more susceptible to head injuries or head aches
  • We could be eager to start projects now, and with the New Moon happening early this morning, it’s a great time to start something that has an artistic influence, or is connected to spiritual subjects. 
  • Be careful about while engaging in physical activities, we may feel stronger or more “heroic” at the moment but our bodies might not be in the same “zone” 🙂 
  • We may be more decisive than usual, as always use caution … 
  • Adults with a strong Mars or Aries influence may be acting more like children than adults. 
  • Some of us could be more insensitive or appear more selfish to others.
  • If you aren’t looking to enlarge your family right now, take care, Aries has a lot of sexual energy to utilize… 😉
  • The Moon in Aries will have a slight effect on all of us, but it will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts: Along with those who have a strong Libra placement in their charts
    • Moon in Aries:
    • Sun in Aries:
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in Libra 
    • Sun in Libra 
    • Aspects to the Moon or Mars:
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aries

  • Note: Mercury, the planet of communication, technology and transportation is currently retrograde in the sign of Gemini.
  • Gemini is one of the dual signs… capable of multi-tasking, inquisitive and communicative.
  • Mercury rules Gemini, making this placement fairly strong.
  • Mercury retrograde isn’t a favorable time to attend to new projects, or to sign contracts, legal documents etc… If the situation is an ongoing one, there is less likely to be challenges when it comes to legal/important or long term dealings. Read everything, ask questions, don’t rush in…
  • Complications with transportation (cars, buses, trains, planes etc) and technology is more likely during a retrograde motion. 
  • This is a good time to re-do just about anything, (including contracts, just be aware of everything involved)… If you are a writer, this could be an opportune time for you to edit your work. Any word that has “re” in front of it are good things to stick to during retrograde motion. 
  • Mercury remains in retrograde motion until June 22, and will remain in “storm” until July 1st. 
  • Retrogrades can have a mostly subtle affect on us all. During this retrograde motion, those with strong Mercury, (Gemini, Virgo) chart influences may feel the affects most.
