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.

Feeling Overwhelmed

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

Always know, the Universe works in perfect order and you are never given more than you can handle.

Sometimes we may feel like there is just too much we need to do. Feeling overwhelmed may make it seem like the universe is picking on us, but the opposite is true: we are only given what we can handle. Difficult situations are opportunities to be our best selves, hone our skills and rise to the occasion.

The best place to start is to take a deep breath. As you do, remind yourself that the universe works in perfect order and therefore you can get everything done that needs to get done. As you exhale, release all the details that you have no control over. The universe with its infinite organizing power will orchestrate the right outcome. Anytime stress begins to creep up, remember to breathe through it with these thoughts.

Then, make a list of everything you need to do. Note what needs to be done first, and mark the things others may be able to do for you or with you. Though we often think no one else can do it correctly or well, there are times when it is worth it to exhale, let go of our control, and ask for help from professionals or friends. With the remaining things that feel you must do yourself, take another breath and determine their true importance. Sometimes they are things we’d like to do, but aren’t really necessary. After taking these quick steps, you will find you have a plan laid out, freeing you from frenzied thoughts circling in your head. With calming deep breaths, you are now free to focus more fully on our priorities. Herbal teas or flower remedies along with wise choices about caffeine and food can help keep us from becoming frantic too. But with nothing further from us than our breath, we can breathe in our best intentions and let the rest go with an exhale. Keeping ourselves centered and breathing into and through life’s challenges helps us learn what we are truly capable of doing, and we will find we have the ability to rise to any occasion. Remember you aren’t being picked on, and you are never alone.

  • Date: May 16 2017 1:50 pm (ET) 10:50 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius 
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: May 18 8:33 pm (ET) 5:33 pm (PT) to moon into Pisces 11:52 pm (ET) 8:52 pm (PT) Aquarius Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now. 
  • House(s): 4th: 4th house of domestic and family affairs:
  • Opportunity Period: None

 

What does it all mean?

  • Aquarius is “different”,  he is ahead of his time and capable of thinking and “seeing” things in a different way then the rest of us. 
  • Aquarius is ruled by Uranus,  the planet of  shock and chaos.
  • We may feel may inclined towards kindness, especially on a “global” level or towards animals, the elderly and those worse off. 
  • Getting along with our four-legged friends may be on the top of our list now. 
  • The time may be right to understand/learn about new technology, such as a new phone, tablet or t.v. 
  • This moon period can bring out the rebel in us, prompting us to try new things and or meet new people. 
  • Be careful not to break tradition just because one feels like being different or as some may see it, “difficult” Teenagers may feel the need to express themselves, so parents be for warned. 
  • Personal freedom and individuality is very important now. Partner’s try not to restrict each other’s movements. Parent’s it might be a tight line you walk now. Employer’s give your “worker’s” a little “slack”. 
  • Being organized might not be as easy now, so expect weird schedule’s and interrupted meetings…
  • Changes may be in the air…
  • Could be a good time for inventions… Perhaps keeping them to paper until after the 25 is advisable if the goal is for the invention to work. 
  • In the 4th house: May be a good time to do some funky updates on the domestic front. 🙂
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And too will those with strong Cancer or Leo placing in their charts. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: Joining a club, borrowing money, fixing cars, hair care (colors and chemical treatments), moving, painting, pouring cement, starting a new job or new construction. 
  • Note**Saturn in Sagittarius and Pluto in Capricorn are in retrograde motion. 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 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. 
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Any aspects to the Moon or the sun .

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury into Taurus May 2017

 

                                                

 

Astrological Event:

Mercury Moves  into a new Sign

New Sign: Taurus

Date: May 15 (PT) May 16 (ET) 2017

What does it all mean?

Mercury is all about the mind… how we think… he is also the messenger and therefore relates to how we communicate… He rules over transportation, technology and innovation… He is the ruler of the signs Virgo and Gemini and is associated with the 3rd and 6th houses.

Taurus is ruled by Venus and is connected to the 2nd house. Financial and Material security are very important to Taurus. 

  • We are more grounded and rely on our common sense over fantasy thinking.
  • Doing one thing at a time is preferable to trying to multi-task.
  • Communicating with others is more deliberate, rather than superficial. Some of us may need a little time to absorb new knowledge or new ways of doing things, as it’s much easier to rely on the tried and true now.
  • Being stubborn comes easier now, which can make this a good time to “stick to our guns” on the things that are closest to our heart… got something doing that needs that extra bit of a push or determination? now may be the best time to do it.
  • We can be more cautious and practical under this influence, especially when it comes to our finances or our primary residence. It could be a good time to look into purchasing that “forever home” as we can be sensible about our needs, while understanding the limits of our budget.
  • Take care not to be too opinionated, it’s easy to miss out on opportunity or knowledge, just for the sake of only “seeing” one choice or direction.  
  • This influence will affect everyone and will be stronger for those with the following in their charts:
  • Mercury in Taurus
  • Sun in Taurus
  • Moon in Taurus
  • Mercury in the 2nd house
  • Any Mercury/Venus aspects

SGC Admin: From our inbox to you: from DailyOm on “Importance of forgivness” by Madisyn Taylor

Importance Of Forgiveness

BY MADISYN TAYLOR

In order to forgive we need to stop identifying ourselves with the suffering that was caused us.

When someone has hurt us, consciously or unconsciously, one of the most difficult things we have to face in resolving the situation is the act of forgiveness. Sometimes it feels like it’s easier not to forgive and that the answer is to simply cut the person in question out of our lives. In some cases, ending the relationship may be the right thing to do, but even in that case, we will only be free if we have truly forgiven. If we harbor bitterness in our hearts against anyone, we only hurt ourselves because we are the ones harboring the bitterness. Choosing to forgive is choosing to alleviate ourselves of that burden, choosing to be free of the past, and choosing not to perceive ourselves as victims.

One of the reasons that forgiveness can be so challenging is that we feel we are condoning the actions of the person who caused our suffering, but this is a misunderstanding of what is required. In order to forgive, we simply need to get to a place where we are ready to stop identifying ourselves with the suffering that was caused us. Forgiveness is something we do for ourselves, and our forgiveness of others is an extension of our readiness to let go of our own pain. Getting to this point begins with fully accepting what has happened. Through this acceptance, we allow ourselves to feel and process our emotions.

It can be helpful to articulate our feelings in writing over a period of days or even weeks. As we allow ourselves to say what we need to say and ask for what we need to heal, we will find that this changes each day. It may be confusing, but it is a sign of progress. At times we may feel as if we are slogging uphill through dense mud and thick trees, getting nowhere. If we keep going, however, we will reach a summit and see clearly that we are finally free of the past. From here, we recognize that suffering comes from suffering, and compassion for those who have hurt us naturally arises, enhancing our new perspective.

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Sign of the Zodiac, depicted in the form of jewelry. Stock Vector - 8673035

  • Date: May 13 2017 10:37 pm(PT) May 14 1:37 am 2017 (ET)
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: May 16 6:22 am (ET) 3:22 am (PT) until Moon in Aquarius May 16:  Capricorn Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s) 4th: Domestic duties and family cares
  • Opportunity Period: None
  • **Mother’s Day is Sunday May 14th**

What does it all mean?

  • Capricorn is business, duty and discipline. She is ruled by Saturn, the planet of restrictions. **Note Saturn is currently retrograde in Sagittarius. This may cause some delays, upsets in work and career environments. 
  • 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. 
  • Rules and regulations may be in focus, and depending on how you deal with these, it could be a favorable time or a stressful one. 
  • Good time to watch, listen and learn: (Especially with Mercury and Saturn in retrograde motion)
  • We may find we are looking at our “worth” now, including the salary we get paid. With Saturn and Mercury both in retrograde, it might not be the best time to actually ask for that raise, but it is a good time to review your work so when the right time pops up, you will be ready to “present your case”. 🙂 
  • We are happy to work for our “keep”, knowing we are doing a good job. 
  • In the 4th house… This is the house of family roots, and domestic responsibilities… We could find ourselves looking back at our upbringing and making the connections to our present state of mind/personality. Spending time at home with loved ones and family is likely preferred to spending time with strangers.. However, this could also the be the time when “strangers” become like family. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Cancer placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Capricorn
  • Sun in Capricorn
  • Saturn in Capricorn
  • Sun in Cancer
  • Moon in Cancer
  • Moon in the 4th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn
