  • Date: September 14 @7:34 am (ET) 4:34 am (PT) 
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: September 15 @10:40pm (PT) September 16 @ 1:40 am (ET) to moon into Aquarius a few hours later: Capricorn Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

    • Capricorn is business, duty and discipline. She is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restrictions. 
    • We may be more in tune with our work/career or vocational direction.
    • Change may be more challenging to deal with, and we may be resistant towards it… 
    • Being disciplined towards our “duties/chores” may be easier to achieve. 
    • Dealings with the elderly may be in focus. 
    • Dealings with “authority” types, such as teachers, principles, supervisor’s may be in focus. Being respectful of such positions may help to alleviate tension. 
    • This could be a good time to get mundane business tasks out-of-the-way
    • If you have been waiting to get a “chaotic” situation under control, now may be a good time to do it. 
    • Rules and regulations may be in focus, and depending on how you deal with these, it could be a favorable time or a stressful one. 
    • Good time to watch, listen and learn
    • We may find we are looking at our “worth” now, including the salary we get paid. 
    • We are happy to work for our “keep”, knowing we are doing a good job. 
    • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong  Cancer placing in their charts. 
    • Moon in Capricorn
    • Moon in Cancer (to a lessor degree)
    • Sun in Capricorn
    • Saturn in Capricorn
    • Moon in 10th house
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Capricorn 
    • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn

  • NOTES:  Mars the planet of aggression and action moves into the sign of Libra (his opposite) on September 14th @8:14 pm (ET) @5:14 pm(PT) to the end of October. Charm is the name of the game when Mars visits here. We are more apt to be diplomatic in our heated discussions. Being unkind or aggressive isn’t how things go with Mars in Libra, instead the “warrior” succumbs to the ladies charms. Some folks may skirt around issues, as being direct is seen as being pushy or rude.. This approach could cause some upset for those who are used to getting to the point. Making up our minds is more of a challenge now, we can see all sides of an issue, and when it comes to clothes shopping we might come home with more than we planned, simply because we just can’t decide.  😉

  • 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:

  • 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.

NOTES: 35568229-country-cottage-in-full-moon-starry-night-landscapeFULL MOON in Capricorn June 24th @ 2:40 pm (ET) @ 11:40 am (PT). The Full Moon energy will strengthen all that is listed above. As the Full Moon becomes full, it can be seen as a culmination of the months work/play and knowledge seeking. For creative projects it can signify the completion of such projects.. Projects, situations that aren’t coming to a close now, may experience a bit of a pause, a time to adjust tweak and reflect. Traditionally, it is thought that the full moon energy is not the best energy to begin something new under. 

NOTES: 2: Retrograde_Neptune[1] Neptune Goes Retrograde: June 25 @ 3:21 pm (ET) @ 12:21 (PT) in the sign of Pisces. Neptune is the planet of romance, nostalgia, magic, avoidance and fantasy. Pisces is the sign that he rules. (Think King Neptune and fishes :)) Neptune is one of the outer planets, and as such is more of a generational planet than a personal one. When he goes retrograde, his dreamy influence isn’t as strong… It is possible to see past the illusion, and to be privy to what once was behind closed doors. Having the truth “revealed” can sometimes cause upset, it’s best to digest the information before jumping to conclusions. Neptune ruled folks, can get a better grip on or vision of goals, making it possible for dreams to come true through the use of practical logic. Neptune Retrograde will remain until December. As with all retrograde planets, be patient and go with the flow as much as possible. Hospitals and other institutions, our imagination and psychic abilities are areas that may be in focus under this influence.

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

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : KseniaTerenteva
  • 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…. 🙂

Sun Moves into Cancer June 20 2021: Summer Solstice: Litha:

June 20 2021 The Sun moves into Cancer.

Cancer the Crab: Water: Feminine: Cardinal:

  • Cancer folk are always trying to take care of everyone. ☺Nurturing is in their nature, in fact it’s so inherent in these guys and gals that if they don’t have a family close by they will create one from the folks they spend time with. 
  • Emotional Cancer folk usually operate on ‘gut feelings’ and while they enjoy the company of others around them, spending some time alone in private can do wonders for the energy levels. Like the phases of the moon that rule Cancer, there are times to be out in front and there are times to take a back seat to rejuvenate. 
  • The thing to watch for with being a Cancerian is not to get caught up in the “needy market”… Depending on others to make one feel “better” is not the best way to explore the finer points of one’s nature. We all love to have someone around us who wants to take care of us, but most of us don’t want to be “mothered” all of the time. 🙂
  • Most “crabs” or those with a “crab” influence are great in the kitchen, as feeding others is another way to say “I love you”. For these folk whipping something up for supper is hardly ever a problem (unless one is feeling a little “crabby”). 
  • Cancer rules the breasts and stomach. Issue’s with the tummy are likely when under stress, during a full moon or when ignoring healthy eating habits. 
  • Sensitive by nature Cancer folk, may at times, imagine slights from others and become defensive or withdrawn (as a crab into its shell) in an effort to block any hurt. This is something that should be watched for especially during emotionally vulnerable times, actions taken or words spoken during this time may cause more upset than intended or needed. 
Warm Birthday Wishes : Ian, Christine, Janine, Rose (cusp)
Warm birthday wishes are sent to everyone celebrating a Cancerian birthday. 

Summer Solstice: June 20 2021

The 1st day of summer for 2021 and the longest day of the year (shortest night for our hemisphere). A positive time where being outside is the norm along with spending time with loved ones and friends. Summer is a celebration of all things light  🙂 

As we welcome summer 2021 we give thanks to Mother Earth for the wonders she bestows on us all



Notes ***

 June 20 is Father’s Day… Happy Dad day 🙂


NOTE 2: SGC Admin: We are late with this post, and we apologize, life got in the way 😉 We hope everyone had a delightful Summer Solstice and happy Father’s day gatherings…
