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… 🙂
  • In the 7th house: Focus will be on relationships and partnerships… perhaps some reminiscing about the past and the folks you have spent time with. Some folks may do some “personal work” regarding their approach to close personal relationships. Mercury is still retrograde, indicating a reassessment  of present relationships, however, assessment only is advised, any changes should be delayed until Mercury and Mars are back on track again.
  • For some folks 7th house issues may be on the agenda… these will relate to relationships and partnerships.
  • 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..
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus

    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
  • Those with strong Libra, Taurus and or Venus placements in their charts may also be effected.

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 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  (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: Mercury into Aries April 2017


 

                                                 

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves (retrograde) into a new Sign

New Sign: Aries

Date: April 20 2017

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Aries is a fire sign, he likes action, he can be heroic or selfish. Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, the most masculine planet of the horoscope. 

  • We can have less patience, and because there are several planets in retrograde motion right now, some of us may get frustrated when attempting to get our point across to someone less enthusiastic to our cause. 
  • Speaking our mind is easier, but care should be taken when  the conversation involves a “hot topic”. 
  • Some folks are going to expect instant answers to their queries and questions, or instant solutions, which, with the all the planetary retrograde motion going on right now, may not always be possible. 
  • Innovative ideas are possible. Under this influence our thoughts are exploitative, so it’s a good time to ask questions and learn about things that may be interesting. 
  • It’s a great time to share ideas with like-minded folks. And for some it could be a good time to put some ideas into action, just keep the retrograde motions in mind. Things don’t always turn out the way we had hoped during retrograde motion, however, that doesn’t mean that they don’t turn out at all… 🙂 
  • There could be “slow forward” motion in area’s relating to technology, transportation, computers and communications For those that work in these fields, there may be an increase of work. 
  • For fire sign people, (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and those who have fire signs in their charts, are encouraged to be careful while speaking, driving and using dangerous equipment… less haste, more care is suggested. 
  • While we may all be touched by the Influence of Mercury in Aries, those with the following chart placements will feel the influence more. 
  • Mercury in Aries
  • Mars in Aries
  • Sun in Aries
  • Moon in Aries
  • Midheaven in Aries
  • Ascendant in Aries
  • Any Aspects to Mercury

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Pluto goes Retrograde April 20 2017


 

 

Pluto is the planet of regeneration, death, destruction, decay, sex, reincarnation, recycling and rejuvenation. He is the ruler of Scorpio (old ruler of Scorpio was Mars) and he is connected to the 8th house and the reproductive organs in the human body. Pluto is one of the outer planets of our system and as such, his influence isn’t as strong as the inner planets… but it will still affect us to some extent…He is retrograde in the sign of Capricorn and will remain retrograde until September 28 2017. 

What does it mean when Pluto goes Retrograde? 

  • We may find we are re-assessing our use of power, or how we “control or manipulate” others/situations.
  • Some folks may find they are “forced” into giving up bad habits.. (which isn’t a bad thing if it’s helps you to become a better you)
  • Our desire to control, or for control decreases, this can be a good thing for the folks around the folks who get through life by controlling or “bullying” others for the sake of their own agenda’s… But might not be so good for the folks who need a push to get motivated or moving with life. 
  • This can be a good time to reflect on how we have been dealing with the changes and transformations that have taken place since the last Pluto retrograde… if we haven’t been doing too well with our changes, we might get some clues on how to make it a little easier now. 
  • If you have folk in your life who have a tendency to want to control you, (remember, this is sometimes done out of love and good intentions) .. it’s as good a time as any right now to distance yourself from these folks or to remove them from your life all together. 
  • Those with the following in their natal, transit or progressed charts will feel the effects of this Pluto retrograde the most.
  • Sun in Scorpio
  • Moon in Scorpio
  • Pluto in Scorpio
  • Ascendant in Scorpio
  • Midheaven in Scorpio
  • Aspects to Pluto
  • Pluto aspects to the Sun, Moon Mars, Mercury, and Venus.
  • Sun in the 8th house
  • Pluto in the 8th house.

Happy Birthday Taurus have a fabulous day and an awesome year ahead….

  • Special birthday wishes go out to
  • Nicole K,
  • Emma,
  • Jessie,
  • John K,
