  • We may become mentally absorbed in a passion or subject, indicating this could be a good time to hit the books… What we learn now is likely to stick with us, especially if it’s something we love..

  • Remember to give our loved ones, friends and colleges space… trust they will do what is right…

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting New Moon in Virgo August 2019 & Mercury in Virgo

Present Moon Sign/Quarter/House:

  • Date: August 29 @ 7:57 pm (ET) @ 4:57 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Virgo
  • Moon Quarter: 4th
  • Void-of-Course: August 31 @ 4:46 am (ET) 1:46 am (PT) to Moon in Libra later in the evening:  Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11th house of hobbies, community, friends and humanatarin efforts
  • Opportunity Period: None
What does it all mean?
  • Virgois all about the details, so be prepared to see to them or at least have someone else see to them for you, you will feel better 🙂
  • Try not to worry about things you have no control over, especially things that might not ever happen… Because Virgo “see’s” all the details others miss, it’s hard for her not to worry… 
  • It’s good to keep busy during a Virgo moon, make lists, tidy, organize, plan, find solutions to problems… a lot can get done now
  • Virgo can be more critical than the rest of the zodiac, but only because she so need things to be “correct” or “perfect”. Try to give yourself and others a break over the next couple of days. If you are an employer, be prepared that tasks may not get completed exactly they way you had expected.
  • In the 11th house: If you have been thinking about volunteering, now is the perfect time for you to start… we can feel kinder towards our community and those who have less then us… It is also the perfect time to get your head into a beloved hobby, and to hang out with friends… 
  • This moon’s influence is positive for: Breaking “bad” habits, Canning foods, Fixing cars, Hair cut (for less growth), sending mail or starting a diet.
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th and or 11th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus or Mercury.
  • And those who have a strong Piscean placement in their charts..

NEW MOON occurs on Friday August 30th @ 6:37 am (ET) and @ 3:37 am (PT).

The New moon is traditionally known as a good time to begin a new project, job or relationship…. Saturday the 31st is likely the best time for new endeavors under this new moon…. Check that other factor are favorable before committing to any new situations, especially if they are to be long term… Situations that involve communications, transportation and technology are likely to be the most successful…. 

Take care not to be too critical, towards the self and others…

It can be a very productive time at work, this includes community work, volunteer work, vocational work and hobbies… 

Because the new moon is the sign of Virgo, Mercury is in the sign of Virgo and the Sun is in the sign of Virgo… This could be a great time for new writing material… so if you are a writer, have wanted to be writer or just need to get pen to paper for whatever reason… 🙂 

Mercury moves into the sign of Virgo until 14th of September

  • Mercury is the planet of communications, technology and transportation… He rules Virgo and Gemini
  • Virgo pays close attention to details, works hard and does what is needed… Virgo is also critical of themselves and others. 
  • Mercury is comfortable in Virgo, as he rules her… Details at work will take precedence over other things making this a good time to get ahead in work projects… However, it is easy to get so caught up in the details, busy taking care of the little things, that we can miss out on the bigger picture…. take a step back and look up and around once in a while… 🙂
  • Exercise and a healthy diet will help to take care of any of nervous tension or anxiety, which can be an issue for some folks when Mercury visits with Virgo… 
  • If you have been thinking of going on a job search, and if other factors “agree” as Mercury visits with Virgo, it can be an excellent time to proceed…. as is reviewing and updating personal career/work/vocational goals. 
  • Team work should proceed smoothly, making this an excellent time to delegate work, and/or to get involved in community events… 
  • Friends and socializing can help to release pent up energy/emotions, and is highly recommended.

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-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 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-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. 

Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

Astrology and how it affects our daily life: Mercury and Venus into Aries

Astrological Event: Planets moving into a new sign
Date: March 6 2018: Mercury @ 11:34 pm March 5 (PT) and 2:34 am March 6 (ET)
Event: Two planets move into a new sign: Mercury and Venus both move into Aries: Mercury will remain in Aries (via retrograde) until May 14. Venus will remain in Aries until the beginning of April.

What does this mean?Mercury into Aries:

Mercury is the planet of communication, technology and transportation. He is the ruler of two signs: Gemini and Virgo.

Aries is a fire sign, he can be selfish, forward thinking and brave. He is action.

Mercury in Aries: It’s all about getting things done now… no more talking or planning it’s time for action. We can be more forthcoming in our conversations now and some of us will be braver about our speech, we aren’t as shy about saying what we mean and speaking up and out for ourselves and loved ones. However, for those who have more than one fire in their charts, it might be wise to “dampen” down the blunt side of your conversations… 😉 Extra care should be taken when driving, the speed signs are there for a reason… When rushing about trying to get things done, patience is recommended, it’s easy to get a bump on the noggin or a cut on the finger through rushing too much..

Venus into Aries

Venus is the planet of money, relationships, beauty, love and all things nice… 😉 She also rules two signs, Taurus and Libra.

Aries is the opposite sign of Libra. He is ruled by Mars, the planet of action/war.

Venus in Aries: Wow what a combination for all the lovers out there… Those in relationships that have just begun or on the verge of beginning can expect the relationship to either move ahead, or stop… there is no more time for wondering. In the physical department, it’s likely to be more “active” and a lot of fun.. 😉 … The down side to this combination is that some relationships may come to a rather quick end… which will be a challenge for the more sensitive folks, especially if they didn’t realize anything was amiss… :(.  Watch the budget while this influence is about, Venus loves beautiful things, Aries can be generous and other times he can appear to be “frugal”… However, fun can be had and beautiful things purchased when Venus and Aries are in positive aspect to one another… 🙂

Retrograde Brigade

SGC Admin: heads up folks… it might be slow going this summer… patience is the name of the game… don’t be too hard on yourself… use this time to get your sh-t together and get yourself on the “right path” for when we are back in forward motion again… 🙂 Thanks to Ruby for this fabulous write-up on “Retrograde Brigade” …

“Retrograde Brigade”

Feeling sad, dragged down, exhausted, or depressed lately?
Well, it’s probably due to all the Planets headed into Retrograde currently!

Somber Saturn is about to join Venus and Jupiter, and soon enough MERCURY who is going Retrograde, and will continue to travel through what appears to backward motion until August 25th.

Saturn’s station can sort of cast a fog over us and we may be feeling quite heavy, sad, depressed, and somber over this next week, as we learn how to adapt to its energies. Mistakes and errors are going to be made, but just until we get used to these shifts,

especially with mental Mercury ruling over our thought processes and also going Retrograde on the 9th! Talk about being slowed down on more than one level.

We may become obsessed with reviewing our life and tend to question our commitments and…
