Copyright : Elena Besedina
  • Date: January 29 @ 4:09 am (ET) @ 1:09 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: January 30 @ 11:44 pm (ET) @ 8:44 pm (PT) to moon into Aquarius on the 31st. 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

NOTES: 

New Moon on Monday, January 31st @ 9:46 pm (PT) February 1st @ 12:46 am. In the sign of Aquarius. The energy of the New and Full Moons can be felt a few days before and few days after the “event”.

  • 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.

  • Date: January 10 @9:47 am (ET) 6:47 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus: 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: January 12 @ 2:39 pm (ET) @ 11:39 (PT) to moon into Gemini a few hours later:  Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”.
  • Opportunity Period: January 11 @11:54 am(ET) @ 8:54 am(PT) to moon into Gemini on the 12th. “This productive OP is good for ambitious projects, but with Mercury moving slowly, concentrate on practical matters” Paula Belluomini  

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… 🙂 
  • 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. Those with strong Scorpio placements in their charts will also be affected. 
    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus

  • Notes:
  • Mercury enters “storm” Monday, January 10th.
  • Treat the “storm” period as you would the retrograde.
  • Best to continue with projects already in play, this is not the best time to begin anything new.. However, if you do have to, have patience and be prepared for some delays and set backs in play.
  • Transportation back logs, car break downs or repairs are to be expected.
  • Technology black outs, cell phone mishaps, computer slow downs and crashes are also to be expected.
  • Mercury also rules communications, take care with you words, double check your emails before hitting the send button, and be prepared to redo some writings along the way. If you are a writer by trade or hobby, you could face few “blocked” days.
  • Messages could get lot or be misinterpreted. It’s o.k. to ask someone to repeat themselves, and no question is a silly one. 🙂
  • Delays in the mail/post, should also be expected.

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: January 5 @ 7:17 pm (ET) @ 4:17 pm (PT)

  • Void-off-Course: January 7th @ 5:23 pm (ET) @ 2:23 pm (PT) to moon into Aries late night on the 7th (PTJ) Early morning on the 8th (ET). Pisces is a fortunate sign for the Void of Course moon. 
  • Opportunity Period: January 6 @ 10:56 pm (PT) January 7 @1:56 am (ET) until moon into Aries on the 7th (PT) on the 8th (ET): “Perfect time to reconnect with people from the pat or take steps to improve your relationships while Venus is retrograde” Paula Belluomini. 

What does it all mean?

  • Pisces is compassionate and caring but can be taken for granted
  • Sometimes Pisces isn’t about helping others but helping oneself. 
  • We can be more psychic during a Pisces moon, but we can also be easily deceived, so be sure of the “messages” received during this time.
  • Be careful if something sounds too good to be true, look for the hidden agenda
  • We can be susceptible to taking in stray animals and stray people now. 
  • Our hearts can be broken or melted during this time depending on what may be revealed now. 
  • Feeling more spiritually connected at this time, esoteric and spiritual subjects may be of more interest to some of us. 
  • However, keep an open mind when delving into new spiritual situations, ask questions and don’t believe everything you hear or see. 
  • We can be wistful, impressionable, nostalgic and dreamy now.
  • The moon in Pisces will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts: Folks with strong Virgo chart placements will feel this influence more than most, but likely less than those with Pisces chart influences. 
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Sun in Pisces:
  • Moon in the 12th house
  • Aspects to the Moon or Neptune
  • Neptune in Pisces: (Note: Transiting Neptune is in the sign of Pisces for the rest of the year). 
  • Ascendant or Mid-Heaven in Pisces

  • NOTES: Neptune in ♓

  • Neptune rules Pisces, making this a strong astrological connection. (Neptune is domicile in Pisces)
  • Things are not always what they seem
  • Deception is everywhere
  • Check your facts from reliable sources
  • Connections with esoteric subjects possible
  • May feel more inclined toward fantasy then fact
  • Some folks may feel the pull towards a new belief system, or the desire to reconnect with an old one
  • Take care regarding escapist behaviours
  • This planetary movement will have a slight affect on us all, but will have a stronger affect on those who have strong Neptune or Pisces connections in the birth chart.

  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offense more easily, or may feel more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some folks may come across to others as being needy, while others are happy to be the needed, helping our loved ones feel secure. Caution is advised not to go over board on the needy thing during this moon period. It may be easy to inadvertently push a loved one away from you, when you thought you were just helping them out.  “mother don’t smother”😉 ..

NOTES: 

depositphotos_156247980-stock-illustration-venus-planets-and-stars-of[1]Venus turns retrograde December 19 @ 5:36 am(ET) @ 2:36 am(PT)

in the sign of Capricorn. capricorn-759379_960_720[1]

  • Venus is the planet of love, beauty and money… 
  • Venus rules Libra and Taurus. 
  • Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. 
  • Saturn is the planet of discipline, authority, the father figure, boundaries and is resistant to change. 

With Venus turning retrograde in such a “disciplined” sign, we could face frustrations, delays and set backs when it comes our financial world. It isn’t wise to push beyond our spending limits during this time. Keeping to a workable budget can be helpful and is suggested, especially as we are in the midst of the “happy season” 🙂 Watch over your finances and resist the urge to buy or spend when you really don’t need to. Spend wisely… have fun… 🙂 

In our relationships, we may come up against some tough issues. If possible, remain focused at the center of the issue, don’t allow emotions to expand the problem. Some of us may face “resistance” from our loved ones and others, it’s probably not a good idea to try and force anything right now, instead, finding common ground  is advised. With the option of revisiting the situation at a later date.

2) Chrion Turns Direct on December 19 2021 @ 11:33 am (ET) @ 8:33 am (PT).

Zodiac Girl Vector Sign.

Chiron is known as the “wounded healer” and as he turns direct in the fiery sign of Aries, it is hopeful that healings (in all shapes and sizes), may begin, and that those that have been suspended, can move forward again. Aries is action orientated, he doesn’t mess around, he is not afraid to “tread” where others hesitate. He is ready, willing and able to assist Chiron, however, we must be aware of the wound in order to help it heal.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio: Neptune Direct December 2021

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Little Scorpio holding star in her hand Stock Vector - 16622168
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Maria Kats
  • Date: December 1 @6:55 am (ET) @3:55 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-off-Course: December 2 @9:22 pm (PT) December 3 @ 12:22 am (ET) to moon into Sagittarius early morning December 3 
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Scorpio is very intense and one of 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 while this influence is about, while others may 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… take care who you share your “secrets” with. 
  • 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 placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Taurus
    • Moon in the 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, the Sun or Plut0

NOTES: Neptune Turns Direct

Astrology Dice with zodiac symbol of Pisces and its ruling planet Neptune

  • Neptune, the planet of romance, nostalgia, magic, avoidance and fantasy, turns direct on December 1 @ 8:22 am (ET) @ 5:22 am (PT). 
  • Neptune is our “dreamy” planet, its’ where we escape to especially when life has been particularly challenging. When Neptune goes retrograde as he has been since June 25, our sense of what is real and what isn’t can become cloudy. 
  • As Neptune becomes direct, the veil that has been preventing us from seeing clearly slowly begins to lift… Relationships may be on the agenda of what needs to be improved or “discarded”..
  • Neptune is creative, and now that he has turned direct, creative ideas, projects and plans can begin to flow freely. 
  • Under the retrograde motion of Neptune, it’s possible to become more “connected” with our psychic side. With Neptune direct, we can take what we have learnt over the last 5 months and apply it to todays situations or challenges. 
  • It is hopeful that as Neptune turns direct, the cloud will disperse so one may see the reality happening around them. 
  • Because Neptune is an outer and slower moving planet, his influence is subtle for most of us… However, those with the following chart influences, may feel his influence stronger. “go with your gut instincts” 🙂 
  • Pisces in Neptune
  • Pisces Sun 
  • Pisces Moon
  • Any aspects to Neptune 
  • Neptune in the 12th house
  • To a lessor effect: Any Virgo chart influences.
