  • 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 may be good for: Borrowing money: Brewing Beer: Hair cut for growth: Plant bulbs from seed: It is NOT good for chopping wood…

  • Jupiter is the planet of expansion and luck, the planet that helps us to grow (in more ways then one) 
  • Jupiter is the ruler of Sagittarius and is connected to the 9th house of the zodiac wheel… Travel and continued education, collection of knowledge. 
  • We have certainly seen the challenges of travel during the COVID-19 situation… and who knows how long it will go on for?… Vacation and travel plans will have to be re-scheduled, re-planned and re-imagined… 
  • Use the time of this retrograde motion, to do a bit of soul searching, you may not be able to phyiscally go out and learn, or travel… but you can still dream, and think about what you want to succeed at in your lifetime… do some research, put pen to paper and begin to make your dreams a reality… 🙂 
  • Good luck can still come our way during this time, but we may have to do some work to bring it to us… 
  • Too much enthuisasim may backfire… check the extra “bubbles” at the door… however, a positive and helpful outlook is always welcome. 
  • We could be restricted for a little while longer, keep on looking for ways to blow the cobwebs away… 😉 

This Retrograde motion will have an affect on everyone, but will affect folks who have the following chart influences: 

  • Jupiter in Sagitarius

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.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Venus retrograde May to June 2020

Zodiac signs with women's faces- Libra Stock Photo - 24022477

Astrological “Event”:

Venus turns retrograde

Date: May 12 @ 11:45 pm (PT) May 13 @ 2:45 am (ET) to June 25 

This astrological “event” while having a slight effect on everyone, will have a stronger and longer lasting effect on those who have the following in their charts: 

  • Venus in Libra
  • Venus in Taurus
  • Sun in Libra
  • Sun in Taurus
  • Venus in the 7th house
  • Venus in the 2nd house
  • Ascendant in Venus
  • Mid-heaven in Venus
  • Any aspects to Venus

What does it all mean? 

  • Venus is the planet of beauty and money, she is likely the most feminine of the planets. Venus is the ruler of Libra (relationships) and Taurus (material security).
  • Retrograde… as we look at the planet Venus from earth, she “appears” to be going backwards. Time to redo, resort, re-energize… 
  • We may take our loved ones and close friends for granted… 😦  
  • Some of us may become invisible to those around us… if that happens, don’t be shy about letting folk know you are still around
  • This could be a good time to do a reshuffle regarding our relationships, including our friends, co-workers and business partners. 
  • It’s easy to become disconnected with others during this time as our focus may be drawn inwards. Spending time with folk who can help us come out of our “shell” is a good idea and should be practiced whenever possible. 
  • How we look on the outside may represent how we are feeling on the inside, if positive feelings are needed to get through the day, feeling good about how we look is the first step. 
  • Be aware of the budget, try not to go over it.. if time permits this may be a good time to go over the weekly/monthly budget. 

As Venus becomes direct again:

  • Hopefully we have a better understanding of our selves and who we want to call friends. 
  • It’s time to get serious about who we spend our time, this includes all relationships dealt with on a daily basis.
  • If a new look is whats needed to get things going again, go for it.. it should be easier to know what we want regarding our appearance. 
  • Our finances may need seeing to, however, if we have been vigilant over the last few months all should be well in this area. 
  • If we have been stagnating where making a major purchase is concerned, the right item @ the right price may be just around the corner. 
  • A good time to spruce up our environment… new paint, new pictures, new drapes etc… 
  • A strong desire to shop, shop and shop again.. may come over some of us… 🙂

Astrology: How it affects our daily life: Saturn goes Retrograde May to September 2020 Saturn turns direct

May 10: Happy Mothers Day to all the moms out there… 🙂 


Astrological Event: Saturn Turns Retrograde

Date: May 10 @ 9:09 pm (PT) and on May 11 @ 12:09 am (ET)  

Sign: Capricorn

What does it all mean?

  • Saturn is the planet of restrictions, duty and authority.. He rules Capricorn, is connected to the 10th house:
  • Capricorn is the sign of discipline… she is good at climbing the “corporate ladder” … she can be kind and generous, but also cold and distant… always a fabulous sense of humor though… 🙂 Capricorn is ruled by Saturn… the effect may be stronger or longer lasting, especially for folks who have a strong Capricorn/Saturn chart influence. 
  • This can be a good time to re-assess our beliefs, ethics and the values we live and work by.
  • This is a time for re-flection… a good time look within, where we may gain insight and wisdom that seems to have been “missing” of late… 
  • Check out all those unfinished projects “hanging around” the house and office… it’s a good time to get organized… get rid of the projects and ideas that are not going to work and focus on finishing up the ones that will
  • Folks who are well-behaved citizens, who follow the rules and have a strong positive “connection” with those in authority, could feel a little “off-kilter” under this influence, but it’s not all bad… just look at this an opportunity to “loosen” up a bit… you are unlikely to go off the rails, and it could be a good opportunity for you to learn something new.

While we will all be affected slightly by this event…

Those with the following in their charts will feel the effects stronger.

  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Ascendant in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Any planets or aspects to the 10th house
  • To a lessor effect: Sun in Cancer: Moon in Cancer: Ascendant in Cancer

September 28 @ 10:11 pm (PT) September 29 @ 1:11 am (ET) Saturn turns direct: When a planet turns direct again, it can take a little while for the affects of the direct motion to be felt… Use the next week or so to finish up anything that has been in process, especially anything related to work/career/vocation… As the next few weeks come forward we should gradually begin to feel more focused when it comes to our reputation… New directions in the working world that have been researched during the retrograde, should take on some solid, practical and successful action forward over the next few weeks.

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

Mercury Retrograde: Enters Storm on February 13 Retrograde February 16 to March 9 2020: Remains in “storm” until March 20

***March 20 2020, Mercury is final out of “storm” … he turned direct on the 9th… the 20th see’s him moving forward with confidence… 🙂 ****

Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury vector symbol

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 entered its “storm” on February 13 {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 February 16 @ 7:54 pm (ET) @ 4:45 pm (PT):
  • Mercury turns direct on March 9 @ 11:49 pm (ET) @ 8:49 pm (PT)
  • Mercury is clear of its storm March 20th: {look over any notes that you made earlier, and see what makes sense now}

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Ekaterina Gerasimova
  • Date: March 8
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: March 10 @ 4:32 am (ET) 1:32 am (PT) to Moon in Libra a few hours later:  Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: March 9 @ 1:48 pm (ET) 10:48 am (PT) to VOC moon: Good for getting our thoughts back on track… 

What does it all mean?

  • Virgo is all about the details, so be prepared to see to them or at least have someone else see to them for you, you will feel better 🙂 
  • Try not to worry about things you have no control over, especially things that might not ever happen… Because Virgo “see’s” all the details others miss, it’s hard for her not to worry… 
  • It’s good to keep busy during a Virgo moon, make lists, tidy, organize, plan, find solutions to problems… a lot can get done now
  • Virgo can be more critical than the rest of the zodiac, but only because she so need things to be “correct” or “perfect”. Try to give yourself and others a break over the next couple of days. If you are an employer, be prepared that tasks may not get completed exactly they way you had expected.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Venus in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th and or 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury.
  • Midheaven in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • And those who have a strong Aquarius placement in their charts..

The Full Moon

  • The Full Moon in Virgo: The moon becomes full this month on Sunday March 12  in the sign of Virgo. There is a sign change later into the night into the sign of Libra… there may be a slight Libran influence along with the Virgo influence.
  • The Full Moon will emphasis the above Virgo traits.
  • Virgo likes to hear the facts, ruled by Mercury she is keen to ask questions and do her research… she can also think too much, causing her to see and feel all and any worry relating to a situation or a person..
  • We are encouraged this full to think before we act, especially for those of us who may be running on instinct, or those who easily manipulated by the woes of others…
  • Check out the facts and get the figures on paper, if it all looks good, go ahead… but if there is doubt perhaps it would be wiser to set this particular project or idea on the back burner for now…
  • Worry causes nothing but grey hair and wrinkles… 🙂 have fun with your plans…
  • Those with strong Virgo traits, take care not to criticize your loved to the point of pushing them away, everything has a silver lining and no one is perfect… 🙂  

Got a Question, send it along to us, we will try our best to source out an answer for you…

Just Click Here to send in your question.

**NOTE** Mercury, the ruler of Virgo (and Gemini) turns direct on March 9th… thoughts begin to become clearer, transportation and technology begins to work better… However, Mercury is still in it’s “storm” until the 19th… so it’s better to begin anything new after the 19th if possible…
