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 off Course…. However there are 4 signs in the zodiac which may prove positive during the Void-of-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. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Some of us may be highly creative, while others may connect with 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 with whom you share your secrets if you don’t want them “displayed” at a later date. Some folks may keep your information until it suits them to use it without your consent.
  • 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 or Taurus placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio

The NEW MOON in Scorpio

November 14th (PT) November 15th (ET):

  • The new moon is traditionally the best time for beginnings… The influences listed above will be stronger under a new moon… especially for those who have Scorpio chart placings… 
  • When the moon renews herself in the sign of Scorpio, it may be wise for us to “be careful what we wish for” … Scorpio, has a connection to the “mysteries of the other world” She is intrigued by it… She will research it and sometimes embrace it… She is ruled by Pluto and connected to the 8th house. 
  • Scorpio is intense, everything she does she must feel “connected” to… This means our emotions during this new moon will also be intense… Be sure that what you are feeling is real and not enhanced by the Scorpio moon..
  • If you have an idea or project you want to get off of the ground, the better day to begin would be on the 16th when the moon has moved into her first quarter. 

NOTES: 

  • Mars turns direct on Friday November 13th @ 7;36 pm (ET) @ 4:36 pm (PT).
  • Mars rules Aries, he was the old ruler of Scorpio before Pluto was discovered
  • We may be able to assert ourselves better, or at least have a clearer understanding of what makes us angry..
  • Energy levels are increased for some of us, making this an excellent time to get physical, roll up the sleeves and do some manual labour, or get started on a healthy work plan…
  • Our patience may be thinner, take care when and what is said in haste.
  • Take care when driving, using sharp tools or rushing around, it’s easier to have accidents especially the couple of days up to the 13th and a few days after
  • We could be feeling braver and more courageous
  • A sigh is heard all around as we feel the “freedom” to move forward with plans and goals.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Uranus retrograde August 2020

Planet Glyphs Button - Uranus Stock Photo - 350564
http://www.13rf.com: Copyright : Johnny Lye
  • Astrological “Event” Uranus Retrograde 
  • Date: August 15: He will remain retrograde for the rest of the year. 
  • Time: @ 10:25 am (ET) @ 7:25 am (PT)
  • 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 2nd or 11th house
  • Uranus in Taurus
  • Sun in Scorpio (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Taurus (lesser effect)
  • Sun in Leo (lesser effect)
  • Uranus in Leo or Scorpio (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 and/or 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 material possession and financial security… 
  • While changes may seem to be unexpected, they may have 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 behavior may be noted in some partners… likely not harmful, however, probably highly surprising
  • Restlessness in some relationships or some level of anxiety/stress relating to finances and partnerships if new budgets and financial planning is on the agenda… 
  • Feeling bored with, or no longing connected to how we make our money. 
  • 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.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Sagittarius and Saturn into Capricorn July 2020

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  July 1 @ 9:21 pm (ET) 6:21 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Sagittarius 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: July 3 @ 9:06 am (ET) @ 6:06 am (PT) to Moon in Capricorn later that night for PT and Early July 4 for ET: Moon v/c in Sagittarius is one of the 4 void of course  “good signs”.
  • Opportunity Period: None
    • Sagittarius is the most “easy-going” of the fire signs and is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet” **Jupiter is currently in retrograde motion in the sign of Capricorn, to mid September.**
    • We are going to want our personal freedom now, so take care, those of you who have 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… 🙂 
    • Sagittarius can be blunt,  😦 it’s good to keep in mind that others may be more sensitive… 🙂 thinking before speaking is a good idea over the next few days… 😉 
    • We could have more energy for fun things such as music, sports and shows
    • 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 making fantastic plans for the future. 
    • The moon in Sagittarius may be good for: Borrowing money, buying a vehicle, 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, along with folks who have a strong Gemini or Cancer placement in their charts. 
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 9th house
  • Ascendant in Sagittarius
  • Mid-heaven in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Aspects to the Moon and Jupiter.

*** Notes***

Saturn makes a sign change at 7:37 pm (ET) 4:37 pm (PT) on July 1. Moving into the sign of Capricorn. Saturn is comfortable in this sign, because he rules Capricorn… this “connection” also makes both Saturn and Capricorn “stronger”. 

Saturn is the planet of discipline, authority and traditions… Capricorn is concerned about career, and image, and sometimes it means a desire to get ahead. Saturn is currently in retrograde motion. We can expect to focus on the essentials in life, like work, career, schooling etc… And we can also expect to do things over again, or find ourselves meeting up people from our past… Perhaps we will go over our family traditions… research jobs and career options… A good time for all of those things… Keep in mind that when planets are in retrograde motion, new projects, jobs, relationships don’t always go as planned… If you have to start anything now, be prepared for delays and do overs.

Sun Moves into Cancer June 20 2020: Summer Solstice June 20 2020: New Moon: Solar Eclipse

Illustration of cancer zodiac sign as a beautiful girl. Vector illustration. Stock Vector - 24677328

June 20 2020 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 mum 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 (menstruation/ovulation/work or family stress/full moon), actions taken or words spoken during this time may cause more upset than intended or needed. 

Warm Birthday Wishes :

Ian, Christine, Janine, Rose (cusp) And warm birthday wishes are sent to everyone celebrating a Cancerian birthday. 

 

 

 


Summer Solstice: June 20 2020

The 1st day of summer for 2020 and will be the longest day of the year and the 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 and who couldn’t use some light after the dark days of winter… 🙂 

As we welcome summer 2020 we give thanks to Mother Earth. 

&

After the strange and challenging time we have had so far this year, let us hope for a better future, of fun, laughter, love and prosperity… 


New Moon in Cancer June 20 2020:

 

Traditionally the new moon is a good time to begin new projects, relationships, school etc… However, we have a number of planets in retrograde motion at present, making this an erratic time to begin anything…

Date: June 20 @ 11:02 pm (PT) June 20 @ 2:02 am (ET)

Moon Phase: In the 4th 

Moon void of course: June 23 @ 3:20 (ET) @ 12:20 am (PT) to Moon into Leo on the 23rd. 

Opportunity Time: June 22 @ 11:30 pm (ET) @ 8:30 pm (PT) to void of course: Good for practical matters… keep in mind all the retrograde planets that are happening now. 

June Retrograde Planets: 

  • Mercury: Planet of communication, transportation, technology… Begins June 18th
  • Venus: Planet of money, relationships and beauty: Ends June 26th
  • Jupiter:   Planet of expansion, luck and exaggeration: All Month
  • Saturn:   Planet of restrictions, authority and traditions: All Month
  • Neptune: Planet of imagination, the unknown, psychic ability, lies and deception… Begins June 23rd
  • Pluto: Planet of death/regeneration, sex, shared money, Insurance All Month 

  • The Moon rules Cancer, so it is comfortable in this sign…
  • Cancer moon is sensitive, caring and nurturing… she can also be moody and perceived as being needy. Take care not to over react during this new moon, if you are upset about something, make sure you have the facts before believing someone really meant to cause your harm or hurt your feelings…
  • Get out your cooking pots, the BBQ or your baking trays, cooking and baking are soothing activities for Cancer folk, especially if they can do so for loved ones… Gardening can also be fun and relaxing for those with a bit of earth in their charts…
  • As we approach this New Moon, take care to have a positive outlook, think about what you would like to bring into your life to enhance it… make notes of any projects you would like to begin, draw up plans if you are so inclined 🙂
  • The last few months have been challenging for everyone, we are all beginning to become a bit restless with this way of life (COVID-19)… It is time to come out of our homes again, yet we need to take care still… Frustrations are bound to occur, making this New Moon time an extra special time to be thinking on the positive end of things… 🙂
  • All moon in Cancer Traits will be stronger during the full moon, the full moon will affect everyone, however, those with Cancer chart influences and/or Capricorn chart influences will feel the affects more. As will those who have the following in their charts: 
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Sun in Cancer
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Any aspects to the ascendant or midheaven

Notes ***

 June 21 is Father’s Day… Happy Dad day 🙂


June 21: Solar Eclipse:

We can be more erratic and emotional during eclipses, it is best to wait out an eclipse before beginning anything or signing anything important papers… if you have to sign anything or commit to anything during this time, take care to check out all the angles. 🙂 If your birthday falls on an eclipse or on the day before or after an eclipse, the year ahead could be an important turning point in your life… stay positive and a positive year ahead is possible.
