  • 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 us 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

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.

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: January 4 2019 @ 1:55 pm (ET) 10:55 am (PT)
  • New Moon January 5th @ 8:28 pm(ET) 5:28 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Capricorn ♑

  • Void-off-Course: January 6/7th @ January 6 @ 10:20 pm(PT) January 7th @ 1:20 am (ET) Moon into Aquarius a few hours later.  Capricorn Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs” Try not to make any important decisions or commitments now. 
  • House(s)  3rd house of siblings and day-to-day affairs
  • Opportunity Period: None

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. 
    • 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
    • We may find we are looking at our “worth” now, including the salary we get paid. 
    • We are happy to work for our “keep”, knowing we are doing a good job. 
    • In the 3rd house, some folks may find they are spending more time with siblings …. day to day activities should go smoothly… although some folks may find they are busier then usual.  

This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Gemini or Cancer placing in their charts. 

  • Moon in Capricorn:
  • Sun in Capricorn:
  • Saturn in Capricorn:
  • Moon in the 3rd house:
  • Moon in Cancer:
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Saturn:

The New Moon in Capricorn will intensify the effects of the moon in Capricorn. It is a fabulous time to begin anew… to put new ideas out into the universe and start new projects and relationships….(it is better to start new things when the moon is in the 1st quarter)…  Stay open to anything that may come along during this new moon…

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…

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio December 2018

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: December 30 @ 8:23 pm (ET)  @ 5:23 pm (PT) 
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio 
  • Moon Phase: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: January 1 @ 5:26 pm: (ET) 2:26 pm (PT) to moon in Sagittarius in the early morning of the 2nd.
  • House(s): 1st house of the self
  • Opportunity Period: December 30th @ 8:24 pm (ET) 5:24 pm (PT) to Void of Course on the 1st.
  • 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 or something 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 may find it easy to 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… it’s a good idea to drink with trusted friends under this influence, opening up to the “wrong” person, now may be bring challenges in the future. 
  • 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.. and those who have a strong Aries or Taurus placement in their charts. 
  • In the 1st house, Scorpio is a very sensitive sign, which may mean that those with Strong Scorpio traits could get caught up within themselves… take care not to take words said or deeds done too much too heart… 
    • Moon in Scorpio 
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in the 1st or 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, Mars or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • To a lessor extent those with personal chart influences in the sign of Taurus or Aries.
    • Uranus is in retrograde motion in ♈ into 2019: Uranus rules Aquarius, while Aries is ruled by Mars… Those with strong personal planets in either Aquarius or Mars may feel the affects of this retrograde motion more than the rest of us..Uranus is connected to shock and change, he can be rebellious… he is also connected to the 11th house of team work and humanatarin ideals. 

When planets are in retrograde motion, it is time to review and renew… focus on what is happening already in life, not what is wished for the future…. Beginning something entirely new in life, isn’t recommended… not because it will fail, but because the timing isn’t right…. if something absolutley needs to be started when planets are in retrograde motion… take it slowly if you can, slow and steady will win the day… expect delays, mistakes and upsets… being aware is half the battle, the rest will all fall into place “in it’s own time”… 🙂

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Libra December 2018:

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Illustraon of fashion horoscope libra cute funny girl Stock Vector - 8069966
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : jtxie
  • Date: December 28 2018 @ 3:23m (ET) 12:23 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Libra ♎
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: December 30 @ 5:53 pm(ET) 2:53 pm (PT) to Moon in Scorpio later in the evening:  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: 12th house of fantasy and dreams. 
  • 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, 
  • 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 7th house or 12th house
    • Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
    • Midheaven in Libra
    • Ascendant in Libra
    • To a lessor affect those with personal signs in Aries 

Current Retrograde Planets

  • Uranus in ♈ to into 2019
    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 be 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.

Zodiac sign Gemini on a background of the starry sky with the scheme of stars in the constellation, vector illustration Stock Vector - 37150664
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Nataliia Vzhyshnevska
  • Date: December 20 @ 9:34 am (ET) @ 6:34 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Gemini:
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: December 22 @ 9:21 am (ET) @ 6:21 am (PT) to moon in Cancer a few hours later.
  • House(s) 8th of shared money matters, Insurance, rejuvenation, death, extremes and crisis situations (equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: None

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 may have 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. 
  • In the 8th house: This is the house that is connected to shared money matters, such as mortgages and loans, insurance issues, investments etc… This may be a good time to engage in converstations relating to any of the above the subjects… Watch out for a crisis situation to arise for some… don’t let neighbourhood gossip make the situation seem worse than it is. 
  • The next few days may be positive for: buying a vehicle, entertaining guests, hair cut (for less growth), joining a club, sending mail, and mowing the lawn to retard growth. lucky us in the north, eh,;) no mowing till next year, might have to do a bit of shoveling though 😉
  • 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)
        • Moon in the 8th house (equal)
        • Mercury in Gemini
        • Ascendant in Gemini
        • Midheaven in Gemini
        • Any aspects to the Sun, Moon, Mercury or Pluto
        • Those who have a strong Sagittarius influence in their chart
  • ***Transiting Mercury, which rules Gemini (and Virgo) is currently visiting with Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the opposite sign to Gemini on the zodiac wheel… Sagittarian type thinking and planning is likely on the agenda… Folks who have personal planets in Sagittarius will feel the affects of this Gemini moon almost as much as the Gemini’s… 🙂

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting Moon in Aries…December 2018…

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Illustration representing Aries the ram star or birth sign. Includes the symbol or icon in the background Stock Vector - 4713069
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : Christos Georghiou
    • Date: December 15 2018 @ 7:44 pm (ET) @ 4:44 pm (PT) 
    • Moon Sign: Aries 
    • Moon Phase: 1st, moves into the 2nd on Sunday 16th.
    • Void-off-Course: December 17 @ 11:21 pm (PT) December 18 @ 2:21 am (PT) to Moon into Taurus about a couple of hours later : Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
    • House(s): 6 th house of diet, health, service.
    • Opportunity Period: None

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
  • 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 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… 😉
  • In the 6th house: We may have more energy then we realize when it comes to our work outs… and more determined when it comes to our diets… likely making this a good time to get serious with either… 🙂 The 6th house is linked to Virgo, Virgo is an attentive sign… critical too, but we need her… Virgo prompts us to see the “finer details” … and Moon in Aries isn’t always happy to wait around, or to deal with folks getting all “nit picky” about stuff… 
  • check your tempers fire people… know it’s only the “moon talking” sensitive water people… try not to “fan the flames” air people… Earth people, be open to compromise and flexibility. 🙂 

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 Sun in Libra: 
  • Moon in the 1st house
  • Aspects to the Moon or Mars: Moon in the 6th house:
  • Mars/Aries in the 6th house:
  • Uranus in ♉, ♈ to into 2019
  • 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 be 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.
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 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. 
Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
