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  

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 Paula Belluomini astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods and dates.

The Moon and Astrology; How it affects our daily life; Transiting Moon in Gemini August 2021

 Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:
  • Date: August 2 @ 4:46 am (ET) @ 1:46 am (PT) Gemini-16
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: August 4 @ 3:38 pm (ET) @ 12:38 pm (PT) to moon into Cancer later in the afternoon.

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 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 next few days may be positive for: buying a vehicle, entertaining guests, hair cut (for less growth), join a club, send mail, and mow the lawn to retard growth. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
        • Sun in Gemini
        • Moon in Gemini
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini

Zodiac signs - Aquarius Stock Vector - 40977554
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Natalia Hubbert
  • Date: July 23 @ 8:12 pm (ET) @ 5:12 pm (PT) 
  • Moon Sign: Aquarius 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd moves into the 3rd on the 24th
  • Void-of-Course: July 25 @ 7:14 pm (ET) @ 4:14 pm (PT)to moon into Pisces later that night:  Aquarius Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now. 
  • Opportunity Period:  

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 Mercury has turned direct 😉
  • This months Aquarius moon may be good for:  Borrowing money: Moving: Painting: Pouring cement: Purchasing big appliances: and starting diets.  
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those with strong Leo placing in their charts. 
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Uranus in Aquarius
  • Moon in the 11th house
  • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aquarius
  • Any aspects to the Moon.
  • **NOTE: Full Moon is on Friday July 23 @ 10:37 pm (ET) @ 7:37 pm (PT) 
Full Moon ☺

A Full Moon in Aquarius will emphasize the traits of an Aquarius moon…

The full moon can represent endings, closure or completions for some of us… And while endings can be painful, the “newness” they present can be euphoric…you just gotta “weather the storm”:)

Because Aquarius is attached to the 11th house of Friends, Hobbies, teams and sometimes the community via doing good deeds… The endings/completions during this month’s full moon, may be related to such activities or people.

Aquarius can be responsible for inventions and brilliant ideas, and so for some, this month’s full moon may mean the completion of any such fantastic and novel ideas…

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life. Transiting Moon in Capricorn July 2021: Sun into Leo: Venus into Virgo:

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

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

  • Date: July 21 2021 @ 6:36 pm (ET) @ 3:36 pm (PT) 
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: July 23 @ 12:34 pm (ET) @ 9:34 am (PT) to moon into Aquarius late evening: Capricorn Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments until later on in the evening.
  • Opportunity Period: July 21 @ 10:07 am (ET) @ 7:07 am (PT) to moon void of course. Good for arts, finance and romance. 

  • NOTES: July 21 @ 8:37 pm (ET) @ 5:37 pm (PT) Venus, the planet of love, money and beauty, moves into the sign of Virgo. This isn’t a very strong connection, and may mean some folks will be working harder at their relationships than others. Take time out to appreciate your “other half” if you aren’t the one doing all the work 😉 Virgo is all about attention to detail, which can mean that some folks may be a little too picky when it comes to who is behaving how in the relationship. After all we are human and humans makes mistakes, as much as Venus Virgo may want relationships to be perfect, it’s just not the way of things. When it comes to the budget, Venus Virgo can be good for those who have a tendency to spend frivolously, she will reign you in when it comes to spending as she will be looking for practical, sensible ways of spending. 

  • NOTE 2: July 22 @ 10:26 am (PT) @ 7:26 am (ET) the Sun enters the sign of Leo. Leo is ruled by the Sun, making this a powerful astrological position. Leo/Sun is connected to the 5th house of fun, speculation, entertainment, children, pets and creativity. The body area’s ruled by Leo are the back and the heart. Leo Folk are independent, and once they have made up their minds to do something, you probably won’t be able to change it… that also goes for when they say they WONT be doing something. They say that Pride comes before a Fall and for some Leo’s this may be the case, especially when they don’t get out of their own way long enough to notice the folks beside them. However, not all Leo’s are this way, some are quiet and happy to spend time alone, they don’t need the accolades, but would probably blossom better if they got at least recognition for a job well done. Leo’s are incredibly creative, given the chance they can “blow you away”.. Determined and loyal, they make fantastic friends, and have no qualms about standing up/for or beside someone/something they believe in.Birthday happy smile greeting card.

We would like to wish all Leo’s a very happy, healthy and fun year ahead… Extra birthday wishes are sent out to:

Phil, Liz, Chris R, and Marcel.
