  • Mercury and Venus move into the sign of Libra on Saturday 14thVenus remains in the Libra until October 4th and Mercury remains in Libra until October 8th
  • Mercury in Libra: This is a good time for negotiations and contracts… open convesations can strenghten any relationship… However, your competitors are ready to “pick your brains” hoping that you will reveal your ideas and stratagies, take care who you share your ideas with. When it comes to porfessional consultations, you can get good results… but check references first… 
  • Venus in Libra... Venus ruls Libra, so she is comfortable here… this is an excellent time to strengthen ties with those closest to you… If there have been challenges for you regrading a close personal relationship (this includes business relations too) use this time to try and resolve the issues… and even though you may not agree with everything, it is a good time to find solutions and common ground. 

The Moon and Astrology


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.

  • Date(s):(September 27 2014 enters it’s “storm” which acts like a retrograde) October 4 2014 to October 25 2014 with affects lasting to the 29th:
  • Sign(s): Scorpio: Libra

  • We can miss appointments during this period, so check your date book frequently and place all scheduled appointments in your date book or phone in a place you will see them often. 
  • It’s not a good time to begin anything until after the 29th of October if it’s at all possible. Projects begun now are not likely to go as planned.
  • Be prepared to redo things. 
  • It’s the perfect time to review, redecorate, renew…. However, it’s advisable that we all check and double-check the fine print before signing on the dotted line.
  • Stick to the hobbies already begun. 
  • Don’t be disappointed if things don’t go exactly as planned regarding our “down time”. 
  • Take extra care when sending out invitations to an event, make sure you have the date, time and place correct… or else you may find you have to get them printed all over again. 
  • Children and pets may be in focus, and we may find we have to repeat ourselves a lot where they are concerned. 
  • Be Prepared have more than one thing on the go at once, however, take care not to add more to your agenda then you can comfortably do, else run the risk of mixing up your “homework” or dates. 
  • Relationships might have to be re-assessed
  • Write down any new creative ideas for future reference
