  • Date: June 11 @11:53 pm (ET) June 12 @2:53 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 4th: Moves into the 1st on the 14th
  • Void-of-Course: June 13 3:43 pm (ET) 12:43 pm (PT) to moon in Cancer early am on the 14th.
  • House(s)
  • Opportunity Period: June 13 3:13 pm (ET) 1:15 pm (PT) to 4:13 pm (ET) 2:15 pm (PT).. It’s a short but powerful o/p. A great time to begin a new and important project.

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)
        • 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

The New Moon occurs on June 13 2018 in the sign of Gemini… this influence will be stronger for Gemini types and those who have personal planets in Gemini or in Sagittarius. Some folks may get excited at becoming busier as the weather gets warmer… socializing, chit chatting and enjoying the company of others may be on the agenda… New ideas may be formed under the New Moon, however it is best to wait until we see that little crescent moon, before moving ahead and putting those ideas into action.

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  (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.

  • Moon Phase: 4th moves into the 1st on the 18th
  • Void-off-Course: March 19 @3:29 pm (ET) 12:29pm  (PT) to moon in Taurus late Tuesday or early Wednesday: 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): 6th : House of service and routines.
  • 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
  • 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 … 
  • 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. 
  • In the 6th house: With the moon in Aries our energy level should be up… making this an excellent time to get to those routine chores we may have been putting off. Some of us may be more in tune with our bodies now, more importantly what we need to be healthy and strong. This is a good time to set up a new exercise routine, get serious about our diet and our bedtime…. Try not to stress out too much about the little things… too much worry now will have an adverse affect on our health..
  • Adults with a strong mars or Aries influence may be acting more like children. 
  • Some of us could be more insensitive or appear more selfish to others. And others may be feeling overly sensitive… if you are in a relationship, try not to say too much or get into a discussion re: sensitive emotional issues, unless you are sure you are both on the “same page”. 
  • This moon may be positive for: Buying for speculation, collection on debts, Hair cut (for less hair growth) and starting a diet
  • 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:
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
    • Moon in Virgo
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in the 6th house
    • Moon in the 1st house
    • Aspects to the Moon or Mars :
  • New Moon for March 2018

The moon renewed herself in the last “echo’s” of Pisces on March 17, before entering into the sign of Aries. Traditionally the new moon is the perfect time to begin…. but wait until she moves into the 1st quarter on the 18th before starting your new projects. 🙂

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio November 2017: New Moon November 18

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs with women's faces- Scorpius Stock Photo - 24022483
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): November 16 2017 3:19 am (ET) 12:19 am (PT)
  • 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.
  • House(s): 1st & 2nd house: Houses of the self & of finances/material security.
  • 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
  • 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 1st house: This is the house that is connected to OURSELVES… We can be overly sensitive under this influence as we are emotionally vulnerable so take care of what you THINK you are hearing… May be a good time for some of us to change-up our appearance…. and others may feel more protective or nurturing towards loved ones… This is a good time for meditation and getting in touch with our feelings… Energy levels may be higher, if they are it’s a great time to get stuff done.. 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”.
  • This next few days may be positive for the following: Antique shopping and moving. 
  • 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..

    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Moon in Taurus
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in the 1st,  2nd or 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Those who have a strong Taurus chart influence. 

New Moon in Scorpio November 18 2017

 

 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:
  • Sun in Leo:
  • Sun in Virgo:
  • Moon in Aquarius:
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Sun in Aquarius:
  • Sun in Pisces:
  • Any planets/signs in the 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or the Sun

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
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Natalia Hubbert
  • 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.

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.

The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting NEW Moon In Leo (2) July 2017

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  July 23 4:34 am (ET) 1:34 am (PT) 2017
  • Moon Sign: Leo
  • Moon Phase: 4th Moves into the 1st on July 24
  • Void-off-Course: July 25 @ 5:22 am(ET)2 :22 am (PT) to Virgo Moon a few hours later: *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11th house of hobbies, friends, groups and teamwork. (Equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: July 24 10:55 am (ET) 7:55 am (PT) to V/C on July 25th: Do what you can to make use of this time period… 🙂 May be more helpful towards Leo types. 

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 11th house: This is a time to find that new group or join that sports team you have been thinking of doing… It’s spring after all and for those of us in the cooler climates it’s a perfect time to re-connect with like-minded folks. Finding workable solutions to challenging situations may be easier to do under this influence, as we are more inclined to work together as opposed to trying to do everything on our own. It’s also a time, when we are happy to do some good within our communities. 
  • 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 at 0/44 on Sunday July 23: 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 Sunday , she will be still be sitting in the 4th quarter…  she will move into the 1st quarter on Monday. making Monday 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.
