  • Moon Sign: Aries
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-off-Course: January 20 @ 3:29 am (ET) @ 12:29 am (PT) to moon into Taurus at lunch time: Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..

What does it all mean?

  • Aries is action, he is the most masculine of the Zodiac signs as he is ruled by the planet Mars
  • We should have slightly more get up and go when the moon is in Aries
  • We are happy to defend our loved ones
  • We are apt to speak up more, even those of us who consider themselves to be “timid” can find the voice they need right now. 
  • May be a good time to get your message across or to ask for what you need
  • Be careful when driving especially when upset or angry
  • We may be more susceptible to head injuries or head aches
  • 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. 
  • Some of us could be more insensitive or appear more selfish to others. And others may be feeling overly sensitive… if you are in a relationship, try not to say too much or get into a discussion re: sensitive emotional issues, unless you are sure you are both on the “same page”. 
  • This moon may be positive for: Buying for speculation, collection on debts, Hair cut (for less hair growth) and starting a diet
  • 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
    • Moon in Aries:
    • Sun in Aries:
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in the 1st house

***NOTES*** Martin Luther King Jr. Day is on January 18th. We celebrate all who fight for justice and fairness. 

**NOTE 2**: The Sun Enters the sign of Aquarius on Tuesday January 19th @ 3:40 pm (ET) @ 12:40 pm (PT): Currently, Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn are all in the sign of Aquarius, making the Aquarius energy stronger… Changes in the fields of transportation, technology and communications are likely… Most changes are likely to be sudden or “way off the wall” … 🙂 Aquarius is interested in transportation, technology and communications… he is by heart a humanitarian, and while he is concerned about the well fair of others, he does like his independence and freedom… 🙂

Happy Birthday Aquarius folks… special wishes go out to Glenn M. Samantha M. and Zsuzanna 🙂

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-off-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 off 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-off-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 Paula Belluomini):

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 Full Moon in Taurus October/November 2020

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

 

  • Date:  October 30 @ 5:19 pm (ET) @ 2:19 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus: 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: November 1 @ 9:29 pm (ET) @ 6:29 (PT) to moon in Gemini on November 2nd: Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • Opportunity Period: October 31 @ 10:49 am (ET) @ 7:49 am (PT) to moon into Gemini on the 2nd: This can be a constructive period, however, because Mercury doesn’t go direct until November 7th, work on projects/subjects that are already in on the go.
  • NOTES: Full Moon on the 31st in Taurus: Samhain on the 31st (Happy Samhain to all who celebrate it) Halloween in on the 31st: (Because of COVID-19, please check your area to see if Halloween is a go ahead this year.) 

  •  

  •  The Full Moon occurs on October 31st, just in time for Halloween… 🙂 in the sign of Taurus @ 10:49 am (ET) @ 7:49 am (PT): The Full Moon is said to the be a good time to finish up projects, to end relationships and finish working in a current location or employment… COVID-19 has mixed us all up, things that were normal are no longer the norm… folks are frustrated and confused with the news and information that is presented to them… we are becoming annoyed and losing patience with all that has gone on since COVID-19 began… Take extra care during this Full Moon, we want to make changes now, we want things to go back to normal, our emotions aren’t what they seem… the Moon rules our emotions, think before acting and know the facts before “throwing the baby out with the bath water” .. we may be more emotionally “upside down” then usual. 

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.
  • Those with strong fire signs (especially Aries) may get impatient with those who are slower at making up their minds, take care not to push too hard guys and gals, it won’t get things moving any faster if you are dealing with folks who have a strong Taurus inclination. 
  • 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.
  • Things that give us pleasure, such as comfort foods, wine, relaxing, good music and giving/receiving “loving’s” are all things we may enjoy right now
  • Some of us may be feeling more frugal than usual, preferring to save our funds instead of spend them.
  • Take your time when the moon is in this sign, there is no need to hurry, and you probably won’t get very far if you do… so sit back and enjoy the ride… 🙂
  • Keep your temper under check if you can, Taurus is very, very patient and it takes a lot to make her angry, but watch out once she has had enough, she will certainly let you know..
  • This moon may be positive for: Advertising for sale of personal belongings, beauty treatments, buying clothes, buying a home, getting a hair cut to encourage thickness, moving, painting, pouring cement, starting a new job, savings account or training a pet.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Moon in the 2nd house (house of finances)
    • Any aspects to the Moon
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
  • Those with strong Libra/Venus placements (Venus rules Taurus and Libra) in their charts may also be effected, and to a lessor extent those with strong Scorpio/Pluto chart placements.

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. 
  • We may find we are trying to do multiple things at once, which may not go exactly as we had 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.
  • 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. 
  • The moon in Gemini may be a positive time for: entertaining guests, getting a hair cut to discourage growth, mowing the lawn to retard growth and sending out 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 (equal)
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury
        • Those who have a strong Scorpio or Sagittarius influence in their chart
  •  
  • Mercury moves into Pisces on February 3 @ 6:37 am (ET) 3:37 am (PT)
  • Mercury rules communications, technology and transportation
  • Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo and is connected to the 3rd and 6th houses:
  • Pisces is ruled by Neptune and connected to the 12th house.
  • Our thinking may be kinder and we can be more compassonate towards those less fortunate then us… Some of us may be tempted to “rescue” stray animals and stray people.
  • Some folks can be easily led under this influence, as they are apt to believe just about anything that is told to them…
  • For others, it may be easier to tell half truths, or to decieve others and the self… Take care what you believe, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is…
  • Water may find itself into odd places, so take care with water on or near communication and technology devices, such as phones and computers… Water may also find it’s way into boats and other modes of transportation, especially when Mercury goes retrograde in the next week or so…

Oh where would the world be without the wonderful Aquarian? With their inventive minds and capacity for personal freedom and change, they assist with the evolution of the human species. 

You guys and gals catch on very quickly to the things you need to know, and while you can be a bit unconventional, unpredictable and some may say unreliable, it’s a different story when you get passionate about something or decide to sink your teeth into a project. Watch out peeps, cos you won’t be able to change his/her mind and she/he will plow on ahead with focus and determination until the task is done or something else tickles the fancy…. ☺

Aquarius is ruled by the planet Uranus… this is also the planet o f shock, chaos, rebellion and invention…… If you ever wondered where the Aquarians eccentricity and some times mind-blowing ideas come from, now you know… 😉

The sun moves into the sign of Aquarius on January 20 2020

Astrology and how it affects our daily life… Mars retrograde June 2018

Mars Goes Retrograde: 

Date June 26 to August 27 2018

What does it all mean? 

picture http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : lainspiratriz

Mars is the planet of action, he can be aggressive and impatient… when he prods us to rush around, he makes us susceptible to accidents, like banging our head on open doors, cutting ourselves with knives and scissors or getting into minor car accidents… He can also be heroic, coming forward to protect the vulnerable and the weak… He is the planet that prompts us to move ahead, to start something new, to be brave.

***Head’s Up“….Those with strong Aries/Mars chart influence’s may experience headaches as the energy moves into retrograde motion… taking precautions, such as avoiding any triggers is suggested.*** 

When a planet goes retrograde, the energy of that planet is affected. And while retrograde motion can get a “bad wrap” they can be helpful if we know how to work with them.

Because Mars is a high energy planet, when he goes retrograde his energy is “capped”, meaning that his efforts to move ahead are hampered. And so it stands to reason, that anything begun under a Mars retrograde may not proceed in the way it was expected to… Once the retrograde has passed, projects and situations/relationships we have got ourselves involved in during the retrograde may not last or have the positive outcome we had thought they would. 

What should we be doing with this energy then? 

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : FRANCOIS POIRIER
  • The best thing to do with any retrograde planet is to carry on doing what we were doing before the planet went retrograde, as it’s not a good time to begin anything new.
  • Mars is a sexual planet, get together’s for physical encounters may prevail now, so take care if you are on the look out for a lasting relationship… 
  • Be open to new opportunities and new ideas, but don’t act on them until the planet has moved out of retrograde motion. 
  • When Mars goes Retrograde, try not to get involved in new relationships, or start a new job, business or anything new that requires a signature or long-term commitment. Weddings and job interviews that had already been set up before the retrograde and that take place during the retrograde will have a better chance of success, then those that may be done on the spur of the moment during the Mars retrograde.
  • Mars has a hand in how we deal with anger, he brings out the aggressor in us… When he is retrograde, it may cause some confusion as to how we manage our anger, for some of us, this confusion about our anger, may mean we aren’t sure how to handle it. It is best then, that we monitor our feelings during this retrograde… and if we aren’t completely sure of the reason behind our anger, it’s best to find a healthy, positive way of letting off steam. 
  • Mars is a “high energy” planet, those with Aries or a strong Mars influence usually have lots of extra energy they need to use up … However, when Mars is in retrograde motion, our energy level can be lower or sporadic. This can cause some of us to become “cranky” or more impatient than usual… It is a good idea then, to practice patience while Mars is in Retrograde motion, stay away from situations and people who you know are going to “set you off”. Instead of getting caught up in intense, worrying situations that likely have no solutions, try doing more relaxing and fun things… Playing fun sports such as volley ball, baseball, tennis etc can all help to use up this energy in a positive way, just take care not to fall over, run into things or get hit by a ball, bat or tennis racquet ;). 
  • As Mars first moves into retrograde motion he will be in the sign of Aquarius by the time he goes direct he would have moved backwards (retrograde = moving backwards) into the sign of Capricorn…
  • Mars in Aquarius, we like to play as a team, our energy can be erratic and we may achieve our goals via hit and miss tactics… Personal power will take a back seat and we are more open to cooperating with others.
  • Mars in Capricorn, is almost the opposite to Mars in Aquarius, here the energy is more deliberate and persistent… we think before acting and our anger is slower to manifest… however, Capricorn can be cold when angered or upset, this can be rather challenging for those with sensitive water signs in their charts.   
  • Bottom line on retrograde planets… Be aware of how serious you are taking things, try not to start anything new and most of all have fun… life is short and we don’t have time to waste on upside down emotions, unless of course we learn from them… 😉 
  • While Mars retrograde will have an effect on all of us, he will have more of an effect on those with the following in their charts.
  • Mars in Aries
  • Sun in Aries
  • Moon in Aries
  • Ascendant in Aries
  • Mid-heaven in Aries
  • To a lessor extent…. the above planets in the following signs: Aquarius, Capricorn or Libra.
