  • Date:  March 9 2019 @ 11:31 pm (PT) March 10 @ 3:10 am (ET)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus
  • Moon Phase: 1st

  • Opportunity Period: March 11 @ 2:35 pm (ET) 11:35 am (PT) to moon into Gemini on the 12th. Get back to your existing projects, we can get things sorted and finished now. 
  • 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. 
  • This could be a tricky position for some of us… please keep in mind that our partners (personal and business) are not our possessions… we must remind ourselves to give them their “personal space” just as they allow us ours… 🙂
  • For some of us, this influence may guide or push us to make some serious, long-lasting changes where our residential situations are concerned… Where we live and who we allow to share that very personal space with us is important… 
  • Take care when making choices regarding, residential moves and financial investments… our emotions are tied up in our investments… and for some that may mean that their happiness is also tied up in the financial side of things… 
  • While the moon in Taurus will affect all of us, those with the following may feel the effects a little more…  
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Libra
    • Moon in Libra
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
    • Moon in the 7th house
  • Those with strong Libra and Scorpio placements in their charts may also be effected. 
  • ***NOTES*** Mercury is currently in retrograde motion. Daylight savings time begins on March 10th

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  (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.

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

    • Date: March 7 2019 @ 3:27 pm (ET) 12:27 pm (PT)
    • Moon Sign: Aries 
    • Moon Phase: 1st
    • Void-off-Course: March 9 @ 12:14 pm (ET) 9:14 am (PT) to Moon into Taurus late pm for PT and early morning March 10 for ET. 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): 6 th house of diet, health, service.
    • Opportunity Period: March 9 @ 11:56 am (ET) 8:56 am (PT) untill Moon void of course… a very short OP… if we blink we may miss it… 😉 

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 6th house: We may have more energy then we realize when it comes to our work outs… and more determined when it comes to our diets… likely making this a good time to get serious with either… 🙂 The 6th house is linked to Virgo, Virgo is an attentive sign… critical too, but we need her… Virgo prompts us to see the “finer details” … and Moon in Aries isn’t always happy to wait around, or to deal with folks getting all “nit picky” about stuff… **NOTE** Mercury is in retrograde motion, he rules Virgo… take extra care with long-range plans.
  • 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 6th 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.

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…. 🙂

Astrology, and how it affects our daily life: Transiting New Moon in Pisces: March 2019

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

12 Constellations ------- Pisces Stock Vector - 7615780

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Ka Ho Leung

  • Date: March 5 @ 3:11 am (ET) 12:11 am (PT)
  • **NEW MOON is on March 6th***
  • ***Mercury turns Retrograde on March 5th***
  • Moon Sign: Pisces
  • Moon Phase: 4th (moves into the first on the 7th)
  • Void-of-Course: March 7 @ 2:08 pm (ET) 11:08 am (PT) to Moon in Aries about an hour later: Pisces is a fortunate sign for the Void off Course moon. 
  • House(s) 5th house of entertainment, kids, risk taking and creative pursuits
  • Opportunity Period:None

***NOTES*** The Moon renews herself on the Wednesday the 6th of March… Traditionally the new moon is a good time to begin new projects and sometimes may indicate it’s a good time to start a new job or begin a new job search… The Moon is in Pisces, indicating that Pisces related people, situations and events are the most likely to gain what is needed as our lady renews herself this month…

However, Mercury the planet of communications, transportation and technology has just gone retrograde… Perhaps this isn’t the best time to begin anything new, as anything new started under a retrograde will most likely need to be done again… it is good if you need a “practice run” at something though, just keep in mind that not everything begun now will last or turn out exactly the way you may have expected it to… 😉 

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 who is telling us what and what may be revealed now. 
  • We can feel more spiritual with a Pisces moon, indicating this could be a good time to join a church or spiritual group
  • 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 effect on those who have the following in their charts:
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Sun in Pisces:
  • Moon in the 5th house
  • Moon in the 12th house
  • Aspects to the Moon or Neptune
  • Neptune in Pisces
  • Ascendant or Mid-Heaven in Pisces
  • Those with a have strong Virgo placement in their charts

    • 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.

    • If you have been waiting to get a “chaotic” situation under control, now may be a good time to do it.

It’s a good idea to write down your ideas during this time… Once Mercury is back on track again, and you check over your list, you will have a better understanding of which ideas to pursue. 🙂

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus moves back into Aries November 2018

Astrological Event:

Uranus, through retrograde motion moves back into the sign of Aries.


What does this mean? 

  • Aries is the most masculine of the signs… he can be heroic, blaze a new path, forge ahead where others may fear to tread…. But, he can also be impatient, insensitive and selfish…. 
  • Uranus is the planet of shock, chaos and change… He is the ruler of Aquarius, and governs the 11th house of team work, humanitarianism and community involvement. 
  • The Aries influence in Uranus could see some of us making or being forced to make some changes… it will depend on which house Uranus falls within our personal charts as to which area of life these changes will be. 
  • Because Aries is about moving forward, exploration and trying something new this could be a busy time for those of us who are more than ready to move ahead with changes… 
  • We may be more impatient when it comes to getting things already in motion concluded… and when it comes to getting new plans into the action mode… 
  • Take care when dealing with others, especially those who are slower to respond to new ideas and changes… not everyone will be ready or willing to take on new challenges now. 
  • For some folks, energy levels may fluctuate. Be busy when energy is up if you can, and rest when they aren’t … if that isn’t possible, try not to be too hard on oneself when things don’t go according to plan. 
  • As Uranus can shock us to the point of “knocking us off of our feet” it is advisable to check all the small points before making a commitment… we can make mistakes now in our rush to remove ourselves from a tedious situation. 
  • Uranus will remain in the fiery, action orientated sign of Aries until March 2019. Keep in mind that Uranus is in retrograde motion for the rest of 2018. When planets are in retrograde motion, their influence in our lives will be slightly difference as to what it is when they are in direct motion. This means, that while other factors may indicate it’s a good time to begin something new, (Aries likes to do new things)… it is not always the best time to do so… It is therefore important to check all the facts before committing to long-term agreements, especially if finances may be involved. Instead, it is probably better to continue with situations that are already in process…. adding a new twist or idea to such situations is recommended. 
  • This influence will have an effect on all of us, but will have a stronger effect on those who the following in their charts: 
  • Uranus in Aries
  • Sun in Aries
  • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries
  • Uranus in the 1st house
  • Uranus in the 11th house
  • Any aspects Uranus makes to the 1st house or the 11th house
  • Any aspects between, Uranus, Mars or Venus
  • Those who have any Libra in their charts, especially if Uranus is in Libra or the 7th house.

Mercury Retrograde: Enters Storm on July 16 Retrograde July 25/26 2018: Mercury Turns Direct on August 18/19 2018

Update: Mercury comes out of his “storm” Friday August 24… 😊 We can begin to move ahead again… If you have been taking notes during this retrograde/slow motion time period… have a look at them now and see if you still feel the same about the ideas you may have come up with… 

However, the following planets are still in retrograde motion:

Mars in ♑ to August 27
Saturn in ♑ to first week in September
Uranus in ♉, ♈ to into 2019
Neptune in ♓ to November 25
Pluto in ♑  to the end of September

NOTE: MERCURY TURNS DIRECT: August 18/19: Remains in storm until August 24. While some things may start to feel as if they are moving forward or ahead, expect delays until after the 24th. Communications should start to get better and run more smoothly… Transportation and Technical issues may not get solved completely, but they should get a little better… 😉

Mercury Retrograde… we hear and see this quite a bit in and out of the astrology world…. and sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂  When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit with this circumstance, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to and do as many things possible with the two letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdecorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, if you don’t ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be REdone at a later date

When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.

  • Mercury enters its “storm” on July 16 2018 {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on July 25 (PT) July 26 (ET):
  • Mercury turns direct on August 18 @10:02 pm (PT) July 19 1:02 am (ET):
  • Mercury is clear of its storm August 24:

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus retrograde August 7 2018

Planet Glyphs Button - Uranus Stock Photo - 350564
http://www.13rf.com: Copyright : Johnny Lye

  • Astrological “Event” Uranus Retrograde 
  • Date: August 7 2018 into 2019
  • Time: 12:48 pm (ET) 9:48 am (PT)
  • House (equal): 7th Relationships
  • Sign: Taurus

While this astrological “event” will have a slight effect on all of us, it will have a stronger, and longer lasting effect on those who have the following in their charts: 

  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Ascendant in Aquarius
  • Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Uranus in 7th or 11th house
  • Uranus in Libra
  • Uranus in 2nd house (lessor effect, unless Taurus is strong in the chart)
  • Sun in Libra (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Taurus (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Leo (lesser effect)
  • Uranus in Leo (lessor effect)
  • Any aspects to Uranus

What does it all mean?

  • Uranus is the planet of shock, change and rebellion. He rules Aquarius. 
  • Retrograde, Uranus “appears” to be going backwards from the earth’s perspective. A good time to re-do, re-invent re-assess. 
  • Taurus is about material and emotional security… She is ruled by Venus… She takes her time and can have oodles of patience, but she has her limits… 
  • Some folks could feel slightly off kilter, as Uranus pushes us towards taking chances, making changes and moving on with our lives… Taurus on the other hand, may prefer to stay just where she is and let “nature take its course” 
  • Changes may be on the horizon, especially regarding close and or everyday relationships… 
  • While changes may seem to be unexpected, they have probably been brewing for a while
  • It can be a good time to act on ideas that have been in the making, 
  • We have a better chance of “seeing outside of the box”… lets open up our eyes and our minds to new thoughts, opinions and solutions
  • Erratic and or rebellious behaviour may be noted in some partners… likely not harmful, however, probably highly surprising
  • Restlessness in some relationships… 
  • Feeling bored with, or no longing connected to, certain partnerships
  • New relationships can happen, but keep in mind, you may be attracted to the uniqueness of the person/situation and may gloss over less desirable traits… are you looking for a  long-term or short-term relationship? Unions happening now have a higher chance of being short-lived. 
  • Relationship/Partnership break ups, separations and divorce’s can happen now. 
  • Finances may be slim, extra or up and down… For those who like to spend, and the budget is tight, it’s best to put a hold on the funds that you have, until things get brighter… the urge to spend could be strong…as could the urge to save…. It will all depend on the individual chart… A strong Taurus will likely prompt savings, where as a strong Aquarius may prompt a rebellious or a “devil-may-care attitude” towards money.
