Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  August 3rd 3:51 pm (ET) 12:51 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course:  August 5 @ 7:46 pm (ET) @ 4:46 pm (ET) to Moon in Gemini later in the evening: Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 8th house of shared money matters… (mortgages, business accounts etc) and insurance… the 8th house is the house of Scorpio, which is the polar opposite to Taurus.
  • Opportunity Period: Saturday august 4th 11:58 pm (PT) Saturday : August 5th 2:59 am (ET) to moon void of course.
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. 
  • 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 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
  • Those with strong Libra and Scorpio placements in their charts may also be effected.

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.

  • 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 about 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… 😉

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

SGC Admin:****Chiron turned retrograde on July 4 (PT) @ 9:46 pm: On July 5 (ET) @ 12:46 am. She remains in retrograde motion until the beginning of December

SGC has not yet studied Chiron, we do know he is the “wounded healer”…. we leave the interpretation of a Chiron Retrograde to you guys, who have a good “acquaintance” with Chiron… Please feel free to leave your knowledge in the comments section of this post,  for others to appreciate… 🙂****

“Chiron is a comet with a unique and erratic orbit. In the natal chart, Chiron is symbolized by the “wounded healer”. It represents our deepest wound, and our efforts to heal the wound. Chiron was named after the centaur in Greek mythology who was a healer and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself.”
Mercury is also currently in retrograde motion, in the sign of Leo.

August the 1st 2018 is the Pagan celebration of Lammas

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.

The Full Moon arrives on June 27 Pacific time and on June 28 Eastern time. The Full Moon is traditionally known as a good time to finish up projects … it’s not the best time to begin new projects or relationships. The Full moon’s influence will enhance the traits of the sign the moon is sitting in… this month is will be the traits of Capricorn and will have more of an effect on those who have Capricorn in their charts. Capricorn is business, career and work… She respects our elders and can be stubborn…. The moon is connected to our emotions, how we react and respond to situations that affect us on an emotional level…. Capricorn can be “cold” to those they hold “grudges” against and have no problem with “ignoring” folks who don’t “conform” to their ideas/opinions…

Full Moon: Full Lunar Eclipse July 27 2018

The Full Moon occurs on Friday July 27th. It is also a Lunar Eclipse.… all of the above traits are stronger under this full moon, the desire to do things differently, to shock, rebel against the “norm” may be quite strong in those with strong Aquarius or Leo. Mercury is in retrograde in Leo… Leo is he opposite sign to Aquarius… Mercury rules, communication, transportation and technology… Expect delays, especially during the full moon… hold back on making commitments or beginning anything new… Traditionally, when the moon is full it is thought of as the perfect time to bring things to conclusion… this month, however, it might be better if we can wait until the 29th or 30th to wrap things up… 😉

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

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:

Leo: Masculine: Fire: Fixed:

  • Leo’s are fun people to have around as they enjoy being with company and many of them (not all) enjoy being in the spot light, so you can find lots of Leo’s who enjoy dance, acting, singing, rapping, writing etc. Guess you could call Leo the “Hollywood” sign. :)
  • These guys and gals require the finer things in life, if this means they have to go without in order to wait until they can afford the object of their desire, then so be it… It’s all about quality over quantity with these guys, (well for the most of them anyway). :)
  • Leo’s possess a fabulous creative streak, of which they are advised to allow free reign as it’s an awesome way to let off steam or reduce the stress level.
  • Pride comes before a fall and some of you (especially if you have other Leo influences in your chart ) may be inclined to bossiness or a belief that you really are the best at all you do :) … 
  • Leo’s are fabulous at organization.
  • Leo’s can be determined and stubborn, so there really is nothing they can’t do… :)

Notes:  

  • Mercury is in Leo, and turns retrograde on Wednesday July 25 (PT)/Thursday July 26 (ET):  Mercury is the planet of communication, thought, transportation and technologyvector Illustration of leo zodiac sign Stock Vector - 37195743
