  • What does it mean?
  • Mercury is the planet of thinking, communications and technology. He rules Gemini and Virgo. 
  • Scorpio is the most intense of the all the water signs
  • Our thinking may be directed towards the things we are most passionate about.
  • Ideas may abound, but they may not always be realistic, indicating we should take care of the ones we pursue.
  • We may be more emotionally sensitive regarding how others speak to us, the tone and words may find their mark without the sender even realizing.
  • Be sure to have our facts correct before making assumptions… it never hurts to ask if what we are thinking is what the other is meaning.
  • We may have more of an interest in esoteric subjects
  • We may become mentally absorbed in a passion or subject, indicating this could be a good time to hit the books… What we learn now is likely to stick with us, especially if it’s something we love.. 
  • Be cautious of becoming obsessed or overly passionate about something… and remember that not everyone is going to feel the same way about the same things. 
  • Remember to give our loved ones, friends and colleges space… trust they will do what is right… 
  • Mercury moving into Scorpio will have a slight effect on everyone, but will have a stronger effect on the those who have the following in their charts: 
    • Mercury in Scorpio
    • Mercury in the 8th house
    • Mercury in Gemini
    • Mercury in Virgo
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Any aspects to Mercury and/or the Sun

Astrology and how it affects our daily life… Pluto Turns Direct October 2/3 2019

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : tang90246
  • Astrological “Event”: Pluto Turns Direct
  • Date: October 2 (PT) October 3 (ET) 2019
  • Time:  @ 11:39 pm (PT) @ 2:39 am (ET) 
  • Sign/House: Pluto is in the sign of  Capricorn in the 4th house. 

What Does This Mean…. ??? 

  • Pluto is the planet of Regeneration: Death: Destruction: Recycling: Sex and What has to happen: 
  • When Pluto is retrograde,  we tend to do some reassessment… looking back, reviewing and grieving. We begin to understand that what is lost is lost, but life must go on we can “see” how we have reacted to our losses in the past. Things that have been “hidden” may begin to bubble at the surface.Old wounds and past upsets may prompt wars and battles, resurfacing of old hurts promotes anger. This “coming back” to old issues and problems, no matter the pain or loss it may cause will continue to return at each Pluto retrograde until the issues have been resolved. 
  • When Pluto goes direct again as he is currently, we may well find we are “forced” or pushed towards making changes in our life. The reassessment we have been mulling over the past 5 months will need action. If we don’t act we will not resolve the issue and it will resurface when Pluto turns retrograde again. 
  • Capricorn is the sign of career, work and duty. She is “conservative” yet accepting. While she understands the importance of family she is more geared towards doing what she must, what is expected of her. Capricorn can connect with and to the older generation, she understands and respects what our elders have done for our future. 
  • With Pluto turning direct in the sign of Capricorn… Look for opportunities for promotion/raises in the work place. Be prepared for drastic changes in your job/career, keeping the chin up if it means you are without one for a while. If this happens keep a close eye out for the new job/career opportunity coming your way. 
  • This could be a good time to ask for a raise or let your employer know you are ready to take on more responsibility. 
  • If you have been waiting to make the move towards a new career direction, Pluto is ready to be assistance now. 
  • Be prepared for loss… Grieve, but know you must move on eventually
  • Partnerships and relationships may take on a new “look” … be open to changes in your partner. If a relationship appears “difficult” take the time out to find out why… perhaps it is time for a change(s). Be open to changes within your current relationships. 
  • Secrets and Desires will be at the surface… however, Capricorn is disciplined so hopefully we will allow her to discipline us to when and how and which secrets/desire are given attention. 
  • The 4th house: Some folk may experience sudden changes or progress in the home. This could mean a change of residence, a change in decor or plans being made for major renovations. “Out with the old and in with the new” … 
  • While we will all be affected to some degree as Pluto turns direct those with the following in their charts will be affected the most: 
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Sun in Capricorn
    • Pluto in Scorpio
    • Pluto in Capricorn
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Capricorn
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Capricorn
    • Pluto in the 8th house
    • Pluto in the 4th house
    • Aspects from the Sun to Pluto
    • Transits Sun/Pluto
    • Aspects Moon/Pluto
    • Transits Moon/Pluto

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Sagittarius October 2019

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Illustration of astrological sign of Sagittarius. Beautiful fantasy girl. Stock Vector - 28069473
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : KseniaTerenteva
  • Date: October 2 2019
  • Moon Sign: Sagittarius 
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: October 4th @ 3:34 am (ET) @ 12:34 am (PT). To moon into Capricorn a few hours later. Moon v/c in Sagittarius is one of the 4 void of course  “good signs”.
  • House(s): 2nd house of financial and material security.. When the moon is in this house some of us may be watching our spending … while others may be tempted to go on a bit of a spending spree…. red wine, sweets and desserts can be harder to stay away from.. 😉
  • Opportunity Period: October 3rd @ 1:15 am (ET) 10:14 am (PT) to Moon into Capricorn on Tuesday. If you can wait 2 hours after the o/p time to move ahead wth plans… 🙂 

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… 🙂 
    • 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 day dreaming and making fantastic plans for the future.
    • In the 2nd house, focus is likely on our finances, some of us may even get lucky in this area… for others, you may be more generous than you should be, so check the budget and the larder first… 🙂 … Because this house also relates to our material security, we may also be looking at buying a house or moving to a foreign land.
    • 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 or Cancer placement in their charts. 

Moon in Sagittarius can be good for:

  • Borrowing money, (better if in the 3rd or 4th house, this will depend on your own chart and the house system used). 
  • Buy a vehicle (3rd or 4th house is better)
  • Sending mail or parcels
  • Starting a diet (3rd or 4th house is better)
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Jupiter in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 9th house
  • Ascendant in Sagittarius
  • Mid-heaven in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 2nd house
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Aspects to the Moon and Jupiter.

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.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio (2) September 2019

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs with women's faces- Scorpius Stock Photo - 24022483
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): September 30 @ 5:42 am (ET) @ 2:42 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: October 2 @ 5:46 am (ET) @ 2:46 am (PT) to Moon in Sagittarius a couple of hours later : Scorpio is NOT one of the “good” v/c signs.
  • House(s): 1st house: Of the self… one’s own needs and desires are in focus
  • Opportunity Period: None
  • ***September 30 is also the date of Rosh Hashana, beginning at sundown on Sept 29***

What does it all mean?

  • Scorpio is very intense and probably the most sensitive of the zodiac signs. She is ruled by Pluto now, but was once considered to be ruled by Mars… she likely retains some of the Martian influence. 
  • 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 right now, while others 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…
  • In the 1st house: Our needs and desires are at the top of the agenda, making this a challenging time for folk who are used to doing things their way as they may inadvertently upset others, or come across as being selfish. Being aware of how we speak to and deal with others is a good way of keeping any selfish streak under control. For those who are usually the ones who do all the giving, enjoy this time, and do something nice for yourself, you deserve it… 🙂 
  • 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..

    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Moon in Aries
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in 1st or 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, Mars or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting New Moon in Libra September 2019

 Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Illustraon of fashion horoscope libra cute funny girl Stock Vector - 8069966
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : jtxie
  • Date: September 28 @ 6:03 am (ET) @ 3:03 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Libra  
  • Moon Phase: 4th, moves into the 1st on the 29th
  • Void-of-Course: September 29 @ 10:06 pm (ET) @ 7:06pm (PT)to moon into Scorpio on the 30th. Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void off course “good signs” Relationship issues may not go as planned, leave the planning until after the V.O.C moon… 
  • House: 1st: House of Self… 
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Libra has a need for balance, indicating this moon period may be an ideal time to implement some into our daily lives. 
  • A desire for justice may be present, dealing with issues that have upset our sense of justice may prove to be productive. 
  • Diplomacy is likely to be more apparent during the next few days, and may be a good time to bring up that topic you have been putting on the back burner. 
  • Hesitation is probably going to raise its head, we may see many sides of a story and find it difficult to make up our minds. 
  • Difficulty in making commitments or long-term decisions, because we can’t make up our minds. If this is the case perhaps wait a few days until the move has moved out of Libra. 
  • Libra is happiest when in a relationship or partnership. Indicating this may be a good time to begin one. 🙂 
  • Co-operation should be in the air, making this an ideal time to make plans with others. 
  • May be a good time to improve our appearance and surroundings. 
  • May be great time to go bargain hunting, 
  • In the 1st house: Our energy levels may be up and down, we can be more protective towards our loved ones, especially our children.. Relations with mother type personalities may be strained but they will remain strong. When it comes to allowing others to see our true self, we may find we aren’t as open to revealing as much as we had thought. 
  • This moon sign will affect us all but will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
      • **Moon in Libra,
      • **Sun in Libra,
      • **Venus in Libra
      • **Venus in Pisces
      •    Moon in 1st house,
      • **Moon in 7th house,
      • **Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
      • **Midheaven in Libra
      • **Ascendant in Libra

 

 September New Moon

  • Date: September 28 2019 @ 2:26 pm (ET) @ 11:26 am (PT)
  • Sign: Libra

What does it all mean? 

  • All of the above Libra traits will be enhanced when the moon is New…
  • It is traditionally thought of as a good time to embark upon new projects, jobs and/or relationships when the moon is new…
  • Wait until October 1 to begin anything under this new moon, while she is not completely renewed and sitting in the 4th moon phase on September 30, she will have moved into the 1st moon phase by October 1 and her renewal complete.
  • As the moon is presently sitting in Libra as she renews, issues concerning relationships of all kinds will be on the agenda.
  • It may also be a time of justification for some, as Libra also stands solid in fairness.
  • If you are feeling “off-kilter” at all under this influence, have a good look around you and find the imbalance in your life, once this has been corrected and balance restored so shall your sense of direction. 
  • This month’s new moon will affect all of us to a slight degree, and will affect those with Libra influences more directly. (**See above list**)

Global Youth Climate Strike September 27 2019…

SGC Admin: The following information is from an email we recieved from The David Suzuki Foundation… we are sharing, because we believe this is the MOST important issue our planet faces today…
 
We do not own this world, we are but temporary visitors to it… and just as we take note to be respectful to any home we visit, we MUST take note and act on being respectful to planet Earth… She is not only our home, but also the home of many, (birds, wildlife, oceans, trees, plants etc) who cannot speak out against, march or protest against our destruction of their home… 😦 
 
The global climate strike is upon us.

This is going to be big…Have you been inspired by Greta Thunberg and the millions of young people who have taken to the streets in recent months as part of the #FridaysForFuture climate strikes? So have we. And now, the biggest global day of action yet is upon on.This Friday, Sep. 27, is your opportunity to be a part of the biggest climate mobilization ever by taking to the streets for the global youth climate strike.

These kids know we have just one shot – that ‘there is no planet B.’ Let’s show them we hear the message loud and clear.

Find an #EarthStrike to attend or host your own

Ready to join the global Earth Strike on September 27?

Here are some ideas to get you involved, inspired and creative.

  • Find out if there’s an event in your workplace or community. RSVP if there is one. Initiate your own if there isn’t.
  • Invite everyone you know. Numbers are key to making this a success. Welcome people into the climate movement and show them how inclusive and fun we are. When sharing on social media, Use #EarthStrike #FridaysForFuture #GlobalClimateStrike
  • Make signs and art to bring to the strike.
  • Get a group of friends, family, co-workers and/or neighbours to make creative signs and artwork. Help make the strike beautiful while conveying important messages.
  • Get inspired by doing an image search of “climate protest signs”.
  • Volunteer to help by contacting local organizers.
  • Have conversations about climate disruption and why this strike is important to you.
  • Let’s get the whole world talking!
  • Connect the climate strikes to the federal election. Make sure people at the strike also get out to vote in the October election. Print these little slips and distribute them at the event to encourage people to vote.

Belonging to this global network of passionate, caring people is so rewarding and purposeful, it’s bound to help lift your spirits in the face of these global challenges.

Join us on Sep. 27!

The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting Moon In Leo September 2019

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

vector Illustration of leo zodiac sign Stock Vector - 37195743
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : chizhovao

  • Date:  September 24 @ 5:19 am (ET) @ 2:19 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Leo
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-off-Course: September 25 @ 12:14 pm (ET) @ 9:14 am (PT): *Leo Moon* v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11th house of hobbies, friends, groups and teamwork. (Equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: September 24 @ 313 pm (ET) @ 12:13 pm (PT) to moon void of course on th 25th. An excellent time to finish up on projects already begun. 

What does it all mean?

  • The Leo Moon Loves Drama, so be warned… 
  • The Leo Moon loves to noticed and recognized, so be prepared to “pump up” your loved ones and if you happened to have a Leo influence in yourself, be aware of how you may be going about getting recognized or appreciated… If you play your cards right this could be a positive time when you get to be where you need to be.
  • Try not to be overly “vain” and be prepared for drama at any-time from any direction
  • Try not to over react and if it’s not you doing the over reacting, try not to get caught up in the drama, or to encourage the over reactor
  • It’s a good time to check out the local talent, take in a down town show, get starry-eyed with your lover, or perhaps look for a new one, as romance is high on the priority ladder during this time. 
  • Might prove positive for hair cuts, make overs. 
  • In the 11th house: This is a time to find that new group or join that sports team you have been thinking of doing… It’s spring after all and for those of us in the cooler climates it’s a perfect time to re-connect with like-minded folks. Finding workable solutions to challenging situations may be easier to do under this influence, as we are more inclined to work together as opposed to trying to do everything on our own. It’s also a time, when we are happy to do some good within our communities. 
  • This moon period will affect everyone, but more so those who have the following in their charts:

    • Moon in Leo:
    • Sun in Leo:  
    • Moon in Aquarius
    • Sun in Aquarius
    • Moon in the 11th house
    • Moon in the 5th house 
    • Aspects to the moon or the Sun
  •  Those who have a strong Aquarius placement in their charts may also feel this moon’s influence more than others.
