  • 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.

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-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.

Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury vector symbol

What does it all mean?

  • Mercury is all about the mind… how we think…  he is the messenger, he relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Gemini and Virgo and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.
  • Mental stimulation is welcomed, and required by some during this time..
  • Restlessness and boredom are forever just around the corner… 
  • Keeping ourselves busy with multiple projects can keep the boredom at bay… 
  • Take care not to take on too much during this time, it’s easier to do then we may think. 
  • Chit chatting, is the name of the game, gathering bits of information along the way… 
  • Sticking to one thing at a time, or being totally focused on one thing at a time could be more challenging now. 
  • Even though we are “craving information” and may feel restless, some of us may be more comfortable dealing with surface matters, then ones that go too “deep” 😉
  • Messages, meetings, emailing, texting and day to day chores could get busy now.

Transiting Moon in Gemini August 2016

  • Date: April 25 @ 3:20am (ET) @ 12:20am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini: 
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: April 27 @ 1:00 pm (ET) 10:00 am (PT) to moon into Cancer about 1/2 an later. VOC Moon in Gemini is NOT one of the “good” VOC signs.
  • Opportunity Period: April 26 @ 6:32 pm (ET) @ 3:31 pm (PT) to VOC Moon on the 27th. A “foggy” start to this opportunity period, which should present clearer thinking as the day moves on.

***NOTES***

Pluto goes retrograde on Saturday April 25th @ 2:54 pm (ET) @ 11:54 am (PT). He remains in Retrograde motion until the beginning of October.

Changes in an area of life that is active in your chart are likely… However, some of these changes won’t happen all at once. Some folks may experience an event, or a situation that brings about realization that a change needs to occur. This in turn prompts research and conversation in how to excute the change.. There may also be times when we think a situation is completed, only to find it appearing once again, demanding attention…

The next few months will be about seeing things as they truly are, being honest with oneself, being aware of our power, yet not letting it define us… Whatever crisis comes along now, is unlikely to be resloved all at once… Patience, understanding and compromise may be required…

Those who have a strong Pluto or Scorpio chart influence, may feel the effects of this movement more than the rest of us… 🙂

 

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. Memories are shared and possible solutions to old problems can be found. However, wait until after the Mercury Retrograde before putting any new ideas or plans into motion. 
  • 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
  • A new study could be on the cards for some of us.. and it will likely be approached with enthusiasm. 
  • If it’s possible to go on vacation now, grab the chance, you might learn more than you could have ever imagined… 🙂 
  • 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. 
  • With the moon in Gemini in the 1st quarter it may be good for: Entertaining Guests, Joining a club and sending mail.
  • 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
        • Moon in Sagittarius
        • Any aspects to the Moon, Mercury or Jupiter

“The Traitor’s Child” (Easter Trailer)

SGC Admin: Mark Townsend is a “Priest” a magician and an author… He began his journey of divination in the Church of England… However, Mark, being a curious man, wasn’t sure if he was in tune with the Church… And so, he spent time with Druid Priests and folks from the Pagan way of life… He was intrigued, and realized that religion and spiritualism are different things… So thus, began a different journey for Mark…

Mark performs weddings and funerals, among his other spiritual duties… Members of the SGC family have experienced Mark’s kindness and professionalism, and met Mark for the 1st time, when he took care of, and led the funeral service for our dear brother who passed away in 2017. Mark’s kindness will never be forgotten.

As an author, Mark has several books published, and he is excited to present his latest book, and his first fictional piece:

This book is available via Amazon… you can also check out Mark and contact him directly via his facebook page:

“The Traitors Child”

“Radical new mystery thriller. A modern twist on an ancient story –

Coronavirus = Panic: Climate Crisis = ??

SGC Admin:

We understand that the Coronavirus is a serious threat to our health, and we send out healing energy to all affected and hope that the situation does not last as long as is being aniticipated.

We also hope that lessons can be learnt from this global situation, which may be applied to the climate change crisis…

One of the many concerns about creating a cleaner environment, is our reduction on our relience of fossil fuels…

  • How do we do that?
  • We can’t just stop using oil?
  • How will we heat our home?
  • How will we transport our goods and foods?

The list of concerns is a long one, because we use oil in just about everything we use on a daily basis, not just in our modes of transportation. The concerns are real and they are legitimate… 

Changes in our lifestyle, changes in how and what we buy, changes in the “throw-away” mentality, is a start towards adjustment,   .. 

As we watch the rules and regulations being put into place in a relatively short space of time in an effort to protect the global populations from the Coronavirus… It shows us, that, YES we can make changes and implement regulations to help clean up our world… Once such changes are put in place, and (this is the important part) followed by everyone 🙂 other changes will follow…

Of course this isn’t the first time a population has had to “buckle down” and adapt to change for the benefit of the whole…. Have a look at how London (UK), France and the Channel Islands had to change everything they knew in order to survive… 🙂

We are an adaptable species, we have come a long way, and while we are concerned, over the Coronavirus some to “panic mode”, .. Perhaps, we can look at this “pandemic” and understand how our lives all over the globe are connected, and how easily it is to upset “the balance”… but most of all, to understand that we are fragile beings, and we need to respect that…

And just as the Corona Virus is spreading like the fires in Australia this past season… we need to “spread” respect for mother nature, to wake up to the fact that we are NOT the most important beings on this planet… and that our actions, whether they be spreading a virus because of the way we process food, or spreading destruction because greed & ego tell us it’s the only way to the “top” have a disasterous affect on the whole planet… A planet, that is equipped with everything we need to survive in comfort and in good health…

Can we do that, respect the fragility of our human form and respect mother nature…???

Maybe, but if that is going to happen, we have to think outside of the “box” we have to share more, be kinder, have faith that we will have what we need, when we need it… It’s important now, more then ever, that world leaders present workable, serious and practical solutions to replace our relience on fossel fuels, to change the materials used for packaging to ones that will bio-degrade, for the humane process of animals for meat production, to stop the destruction of our rain forests, to clean up and stop the pollution of our oceans and lakes… etc… etc… etc…

Change is within us.. 🙂 


Some Practical Tips to stay safe during the Corona Virus Situation:

  • Wash Hands a lot throughout the day, when you come in from the grocery store or any other errand: May need to moisturize, pick one that is unscented.
  • Wipe down, door knobs, light switches, counter tops, t.v. remotes, several times a day.
  • Change tea towels and hand towels ever few days
  • Change bed linens and any furniture coverings regularly
  • Wash animal blankets regularly
  • Take care of yourself, eat lots of veggies, drink lots of water… Stews, soups and spaghetti dishes are all good choices… Try to limit sugar intake. Get your sleep, and get some exercise in… laugh a lot … 🙂
  • If you are under isolation, ask a friend or a relative to pick up the bits and pieces that you need and leave them on the door step… 🙂

Good luck to everyone one who is currently under isolation… catch up on you reading and creative projects if you are feeling well enough…

Send us your tips and stories 🙂 astrostar61@hotmail.com


Some Tips on helping our environment:

  • Think about what you need and why you need it, before going shopping.
  • Think about what products are made of, where they are made and what will happen to them when they are put in the garbage.
  • Avoid impluse buying.
  • Reuse what you can, recycle what you can and donate what you can
  • Be creative 🙂
  • Walk more, Drive less
  • Eat less red meat
  • Try to reduce single use plastic use.. bring your own grocery bags to the store when you shop
  • Try to limit your air travel and cruise travel…
  • Try to limit your car travel, if you are visiting folks on the other side of the city or further, make a day of it or a weekend and do some other stuff while you are there..

There are lots of ways we can make small changes in our lives, and if we all do little things, they will make a difference 🙂

We welcome your tips and ideas on how to help our world to be happy again. astrostar61@hotmail.com

  • 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… 🙂
