  • Date: April 19
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio @ 8:41 am (ET) 5:41 am (PT)
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: April 20 @ 9:00 pm (PT) and April 21 @ 12:00 am (ET) to Moon into Sagittarius a short time later.

***NOTE*** Friday the 19th of April is GOOD FRIDAY... we wish everyone a peaceful and serene day. 

*** NOTE*** Passover begins at Sundown on the evening of Friday the 19th. we wish everyone a peaceful and enjoyable passover celebration...

 

What does it all mean?

  • Scorpio is very intense and probably the most sensitive of the zodiac signs
  • 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 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 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…
  • In the 4th house. Our attention may be on the home and our families needs… those of us who have a nurturing nature may feel the need to cook, clean and love our family… Domestic chores may seem easier and we may even find the time and energy to spruce up our surroundings a bit.  
  • 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 placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Aquarius
    • Moon in the 4th house
    • Moon in the 8th house
    • Moon in Cancer
    • Aspects to the Moon, the Sun or Pluto

The Full Moon in Scorpio may be a challenging one for some of us… our emotions can be more intense, we could “feel” things which aren’t really there, or we may be sensitive emotionally, believing others are out to upset our personal apple cart.

This months Full Moon begins in the last degree of Libra… so there will Libra and Scorpio influences on us all… 🙂 Libra is ruled by Venus the planet of love and money….. some of us may get a little jealous, that’s the Scorpio talking… while others of us may get the spending bug, that’s Libra talking… 🙂 check the budget first…and check the facts before thinking coming to any conclusions… 🙂

Negative emotions such as jealousy and resentment can surface now, and we are advised to keep such feelings under wrap as much as possible..

Psychic abilities are likely stronger, and some of us may experience vivid dreams. 

Traditionally, when the moon is full, this is an opportune time to finish up on projects already in the works… so if you started a home project but didn’t get a chance to get it all done, now is the perfect time. 🙄😏maybe.. 😉

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-off-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 off 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 off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-off-Course moon… 

Good for Void-Off-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.

    • Date: April 3 2019 @ 3:27 pm (ET) 12:27 pm (PT)
    • Moon Sign: Aries 
    • Moon Phase: 4th
    • Void-off-Course: April 5 @ 10:15 pm (ET) 7:15 pm (PT) to Moon into Taurus the next morning. Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
    • House(s): 9 th house of higher learning and travel
    • Opportunity Period: None
  • The New Moon is on Friday April 5th, it will fall in the sign of Aries. Those with personal planets in Aries… (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) will reap the benefits of the NEW MOON more than the rest of us… So listen up Aries folks (the sun is also currently in Aries)… It’s time to think about doing something new and exciting. Aries is a pioneering sign, he likes to rush off and be the first to explore…
  • The New Moon is an excellent time to begin something new, however, as she sits in the 4th quarter of the moon on the 5th, (4th quarter moon, is more suited to endings)… it may be better to wait until Saturday the 6th before putting ideas into action. 
  • Those with a strong Libra in their charts may also, to a lessor extent, benefit from the positive effects of the New Moon. 

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, however, we have just experienced a full moon, (time to finish up) so if you really want to start something now, choose something small… 🙂 
  • Be careful 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 … 
  • Be careful about saying yes to everything right now, we might feel like we can handle more, but when the time comes we could be sorry we took on so much at once. 
  • Being healthy and feeling good so we can help others, or at the very least get our chores done may be on the agenda for the next few days. 
  • 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… 😉
  • In the 9th house of knowledge and travel. This is the house of a fire sign, (Sagittarius). Fire is energy… 🙂 Get out and about and see new things, even if it’s only in your immediate neighbourhood… and keep your eyes and ears open to all around you, it’s a brilliant time to pick up some new knowledge. 
  • check your tempers fire people… know it’s only the “moon talking” sensitive water people… try not to “fan the flames” air people… Earth people, be open to compromise and flexibility. 🙂 

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: 
  • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries: 
  • Mars in Aries Sun in Libra: 
  • Moon in the 1st house
  • Aspects to the Moon or Mars: Moon in the 6th house:
  • Mars/Aries in the 9th house:
  • Retrograde Planets: 
  • When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.

Full Moon in Gemini November 23 2018: 

  • The influence’s listed above will be intensified under the Full Moon… 
  • Gemini, is one of the dual signs of the Zodiac, she is ruled by Mercury, the planet of thought, communication and technology. (Mercury is currently in retrograde motion until December 6, in storm until December 11)
  • Gemini is connected to the 3rd house of communications, siblings and day-to-day affairs. With the moon being in the 8th house, some of us may see increased dealings with siblings regarding shared money matters or inheritence. 
  • Some folks will be very restless under this Full Moon, keeping busy in a positive way will help to still the restlessness. 
  • Stay away from negative folk who try to involve you in their negative thought pattern
  • Some folks may find they are doing lots of things at once, or they may feel they should be doing lots of things at once.. Only do what you can do, don’t get yourself in a pickle.. it’s o.k. not to be over achievers… 🙂 
  • For some of us, trying to set our minds to the task at hand may be more challenging than we would like… Again, do what you can and don’t beat yourself up about that which doesn’t get done… 🙂  Take care not to rush around too much or do too many things at once… When dealing with communications take care to double check what you are saying, and listen well to what is being said… When reading emails and texts, give allowences for errors and take the time to confirm everything… Computers, phones, vehicles etc may “act up” or not work as intended… it’s not for the long term, patience may be needed to get through the next few days.

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….

  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: November 18 6:42 am (ET) 3:42 am (PT) (Time of the New Moon) to Moon in Sagittarius Early in the afternoon : Scorpio is NOT one of the “good” v/c signs.

  • Opportunity Period: November 18 6:18 am (ET) 3:18 am (PT) to 7:18 am (ET) 4:18 am (PT)… It’s early in the morning, but if you are up and about, it is a good time to start on that new project. 

What does it all mean?  

  • 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 at the same time and patience may be needed regarding sensitive relationship matters

However, it could be a challenge to stick to a routine or one idea now. 
  • In the 2nd house: This is the house connected to our finances and what makes us feel secure. Scorpio is connected to the 8th house & Pluto which connects to shared money matters such as insurance, mortgage, investments etc… If such issues come up right now, it’s a good time to review them. We are emotionally connected to our finances, which may affect how we are feeling over the next few days. Try not to impulse spend, especially if feeling a little “blue”. It’s best to stay grounded during this time by not attempting to do something or become a part of a situation outside of the emotional “comfort zone”.

 The above traits will be stronger under the Influence of the new moon. Be especially careful when it comes to spending money, as we can be tempted to spend more than we have, or to believe we will be capable of recouping any “overage” at a later date. Remember that Scorpio is a water sign, she feels everything intensely. .. Tempers may flair, due to misconceptions or miscommunication, The New Moon is traditionally thought of as the perfect time to begin new projects, relationships, jobs etc…. The moon moves into the 1st quarter on November 19th… it is better to wait until then to begin anything new if you can… The moon will move into the sign of Sagittarius on November 18 at 1:59 pm (ET) 10:59 am (PT).

The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting New Moon In Leo August 2017

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  August 19 @ 1:55 pm (ET) 10:55 am (PT) 2017 **NOTE** Solar Eclipse on August 21st along with New Moon in 28 degrees ♌ 
  • Moon Sign: Leo ♌ 
  • Moon Phase: 4th 
  • Void-off-Course: August 21 @ 2:30 pm (ET) 11:30 am (PT) to Virgo Moon a few hours later: *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 1oth house of career and public image. (Equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: None

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. 
  • In the 1oth house of career public image… This is pretty powerful planetary energy,  the moon is  renewing herself in a fire sign, (♌ Leo) and a Solar Eclipse is happening … Those looking to boost or make changes in their career’s/line of work could be looking at a positive and productive few days. Having a job interview or starting a new job can both go well under this influence. 
  • 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 11th house
  • Moon in the 5th 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 occurs in Leo, after which she saunters on over to visit with the sign of Virgo: Traditionally, it is thought, that when the moon renews herself, it is also a good time for us to renew, or begin…This month, when the moon becomes new on Monday , she will be still be sitting in the 4th quarter…  she will move into the 1st quarter on Tuesday. making Tuesday the better day to begin our projects. The new moon can be a positive and uplifting time, and when she is in a fire sign like Leo, it can also be a good time to get involved in more active, fun and somewhat “risky” 😉 endeavors. Virgo traits will also be active during this new moon, such as paying attention to the smaller details and taking our health and hygiene serious, so too can the Virgo trait of being overly critical be active, so take care not to nag others who don’t seem to be doing things to “right” !!

The Solar Eclipse may bring about changes for some, and realizations that changes may be needed in the future for others…. Change relate to growth, and we are here to grow and learn, no matter how painful that may be at times… With this Eclipse happening in the sign of Leo with a dash of Virgo… Changes relating to our out look on life, our impatience with some aspects of our life, changes relating to the children and pets in our lives… Leo also likes to speculate or take risks where other’s wouldn’t go… the Eclipse may encourage some of us to go outside of our comfort zone… it will be up to these folks to be sure the timing is right for any major risks/changes, with Virgo’s extraordinary way of seeing the tiniest of details and flaws, she may well be able to help most of us make positive logically choices when it comes to big changes. 

Both the New Moon and the Solar Eclipse will have a greater effect on those with the following in their charts: The influences of these planetary activities will likely have the most effect on the area’s friendships, hobbies, humanitarian endeavors and community events.

  • Moon in Leo:
  • Moon in Virgo:

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.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting FULL Moon/Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius.. August 2017

 Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs - Aquarius Stock Vector - 40977554

  • Date: August 6 2017 @ 8:15 an (ET) 5:15 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: August 8 3:07 pm (ET) 12:07 pm (PT) to moon into Pisces 5:56 pm (ET) 2:56 pm (PT) Aquarius Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now. 
  • House(s): 5th: house of pets, children, entertainment, speculation:
  • Opportunity Period: None

 

What does it all mean?

  • Aquarius is “different”,  he is ahead of his time and capable of thinking and “seeing” things in a different way then the rest of us. 
  • Aquarius is ruled by Uranus,  the planet of  shock and chaos.
  • We may feel may inclined towards kindness, especially on a “global” level or towards animals, the elderly and those worse off. 
  • Getting along with our four-legged friends may be on the top of our list now. 
  • The time may be right to understand/learn about new technology, such as a new phone, tablet or t.v. 
  • This moon period can bring out the rebel in us, prompting us to try new things and or meet new people. 
  • Be careful not to break tradition just because one feels like being different or as some may see it, “difficult” Teenagers may feel the need to express themselves, so parents be for warned. 
  • Personal freedom and individuality is very important now. Partner’s try not to restrict each other’s movements. Parent’s it might be a tight line you walk now. Employer’s give your “worker’s” a little “slack”. 
  • Being organized might not be as easy now, so expect weird schedule’s and interrupted meetings…
  • Changes may be in the air…if you are o.k. with change, it’s possible to make long-term plan changes now..
  • Could be a good time for inventions, putting pen to paper is more appropriate at this time,  instead of going full steam ahead with concrete plans. 
  • In the 5th house: Play time with kids and pets. 🙂 A little safe gambling for some may be in the offing… remember take only what you can afford to lose… 😉 This is also the house of Leo, the opposite sign to Aquarius on the zodiac wheel.. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And too will those with strong Cancer or Leo placing in their charts. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: Joining a club, borrowing money, fixing cars, hair care (colors and chemical treatments), moving, painting, pouring cement, starting a new job or new construction. 
  • Note**Saturn in Sagittarius, Neptune in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn are in retrograde motion. When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information. 
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 5 th house
  • Moon in Leo (to a lessor extent)
  • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Any aspects to the Moon or the sun . 
  • Those who have a strong Leo chart influence.

There is a FULL MOON, Lunar Eclipse on Monday August 7th in the sign of Aquarius. All of the above traits will be stronger and will have the strongest effect on those who have strong Aquarius, Leo and Cancer placings in their charts. The full moon is a good time to wind down projects, finish things up or gets things moving towards the final stage(s). Because this months full moon happens Aquarius, these endings are most likely to affect the following area’s: Friends, politics or humanitarian events. The Eclipse brings an unsettling or unsteady influence into the day. Because of this it is better to leave the following things until later in the week if you can: Elective surgery, important events and the arranging of them and or the signing of any important documents. The influence of the Eclipse can have an effect on anyone and everyone.
