  • Date: October 8th @11:57am (ET) @8:57am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: October 10 @10:02 am(ET) @7:02am (PT) to moon into Taurus later in the afternoon.  Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
  • 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, The moon is still rather full, and has not begun her waning period in earnest, it is probably better to work on projects recently begun, than to begin a brand new one right now. 
  • 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 … 
  • Adults with a strong Mars or Aries influence may be acting more like children than adults. Take care not to rush into things, make rash decisions or quick judgements
  • 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… 😉
  • 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:
    • Mars in Aries:
    • Moon in Libra 
    • Sun in Libra 
    • Aspects to the Moon or Mars:
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Aries

  • Note: Pluto, the planet of death, sex, rejuvenation, destruction and what HAS to happen, turns direct on October 8th @5:56 pm (ET) @2:56 pm (PT). When a planet turns direct, it is still a little bit “wobbly”, meaning, that it doesn’t come fully back online until a few days have passed. When a planet is in retrograde motion, it usually means that as a species, we have the opportunity to look back, redirect our energy, fix some things, while letting other things go completely. It can also mean that in the area’s related to the planet may be slightly more fuzzy than we are used to. It can be challenging to see things clearly, or to accept some of the changes that are happening to us, our loved ones and to the environment around us. As Pluto turns direct again, it will be easier to see what must be done, what we must come to terms with, and the changes that we must accept in order for us to move on.
  • NOTE 2: October 9th, Sunday, sees our Lady become full in the sign of Aries, @4:55pm (ET) @1:55pm(PT). When the moon is full, it is said to be the best time to finish up projects, relationships, jobs, anything that can no longer “serve” us and which, we can no longer “serve”. With the energy of Aries, with his fire and “bravery” it can be a good time to move away from people and situations that have seem to drain our energy instead of compliment it. We can find that place within us, that prompts us to say NO, that prompts us to stand up for what we believe in. This wonderful energy, is also handy if we need to be getting something physical finished up, such as a DIY project, although Aries is not the best at completing projects, with a full moon at his back, it may be the push he needs… Happy High Energy Full Moon Everyone.

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 

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.

  • 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 is important, making this an excellent time to engage in a new fitness regime. 
  • 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.
  • Sex may be high on the agenda for some of us.

Mercury Enters a New Sign.

  • Mercury is the planet of communication, transportation and technology, he enters into the sign of Gemini on April 29th @6:23pm (ET) @ 3:23pm (PT), until May 24th.
  • Gemini is ruled by Mercury, this is where Gemini “lives”. This is a comfortable and familiar placement for Mercury.  
  • When Mercury visits with Gemini, we could become extra chatty and suddenly quite busy, especially with anything relating to communications and day to day chores. 
  • Messages abound with this placement, we may receive messages that we have been waiting for, good news perhaps. Or, we could connect with long last family or friends. 
  • Our minds may be racing, but in a good way, as we come up with inventive ideas, and solutions to problems that we thought may never go away.
  • If you have been thinking of replacing your vehicle, or getting one for the first time, this could be an opportune time to do so, watch the papers for sales and special deals. 
  • Gemini is a dual sign, taking on more than we can handle is a possibility, as some of us may feel that our lives need to be fuller… more things to do, places to go and people to see… Take care about the commitments you take on, check your date book, just in case you double book yourself. 
  • Learning something new, such as new technology, can go over well now, just make sure it’s not something too complicated, as Gemini can get easily bored… 
  • New trends may appeal to some. Watch your budget, it’s tempting to buy what you need to engage in the latest trend, but will you need that stuff afterwards? 
  • This Astrological connection will have an effect on all of us, however, those who have the following chart influences will feel this connection the most, make the most of this time as a lot can get accomplished. 
  • Sun in Gemini
  • Mercury in Gemini
  • To a lessor extent Sun in Sagittarius
  • To a lessor extent Mercury in Sagittarius

  • Pluto turns retrograde on Friday April 29th @2:38 pm (ET) @11:38 am (PT) in the sign of Capricorn, he remains here until October. 
  • This is an excellent time to distance yourself from people, places and situations that have restricted you or who have tried to manipulate you. (Unless you are in Canada, where millions are banned from leaving the country or moving freely within it by Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, perhaps this Pluto connection will encourage him to have a change of heart 😊He does have a Capricorn Sun)
  • It’s a time to take back your power, and for folks who don’t usually have the energy or strength to do so, you can find your voice if you really want to.
  • On the flip side of the coin, if you have been the one to try and restrict or control others or situations that affect others on a personal level, you may just have to take a step back, check yourself and ask yourself if you are being selfish, paranoid or just not a very nice person?…
  • Folks who are used to being in control or have “control issues” may find this a frustrating time. Know when to back off or back down, no one can be in control all of the time over everyone they deal with, besides, folks need to find out stuff for themselves sometimes. 
  • Pluto is about change and regeneration, he can bring about death, not just physical death, but emotional and mental too and the endings of situations, jobs, relationships etc… Which means that ending bad situations or making positive changes IS possible now. 
  • Pluto rules the sign of Scorpio and is connected to the 8th house of Death, Sex and regeneration. 
  • This astrological connection, will have an affect on us all, however, it will affect those with the following chart influences the most. 
  • Pluto in Capricorn
  • Pluto in Scorpio (to a lessor extent)
  • Sun in Scorpio (to a lessor extent)
  • Pluto in Cancer (to a lessor extent) 
  • Sun in Capricorn

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: March 31 @5:30 am (ET) @2:30 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 4th. Moves into the 1st on Saturday April 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: April 2 @ 9:51 am (ET) @ 6:51 am (PT). Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
  • Opportunity Period: None

  • The New Moon occurs in Aries March 31 @ 11:24 pm (PT) April 1 @ 2:24 am (ET). The influence of the Aries moon will be stronger. Take extra care when driving, and if you suffer from headaches you may need to stay away from whatever triggers them for a day or two. We can be more impatient than usual, so try and stay away from folk and situations that “push your buttons”.
  • If you have extra energy or feel restless during this New Moon, try doing something physical (exercise, walking, or playing a sport). Pent up energy is likely to come out negatively if coupled with impatience.
  • The new moon is traditionally the time to start new projects, new business and new relationships.. it’s a time to move into that “first place” and could be time to enter into the work force for the 1st time, change jobs or job responsibilities.. however, the moon is still in the 4th quarter (endings) … If possible, wait until April 2nd, to start anything new. 

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 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 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 than adults. 
  • Some of us could be more insensitive or appear more selfish to others.

  • Date: March 3 @7:52 pm (ET) @4:52 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 1st. The best time to begin new projects. The 1st house is also the house of Aries, making the moon in Aries in the first house stronger for personal actions.
  • Void-off-Course: March 5 @11:02pm (ET) @8:02pm (PT) to moon in Taurus on the 6th. Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before rushing ahead with plans.
  • Opportunity Period: None

Notes:

  1. March 5th @ 10:23 pm (PT) March 6th @ 1:23am (ET). Mars enters the sign of Aquarius ♒. Mars is the planet of assertion, action and aggression. Aquarius, can be humanitarian, unique, rebellious, intellectual, forward think, inventive. Aquarius has the ability to distance himself/herself emotionally, standing back to view the bigger picture. With the high energy out put of Mars, and the forward thinking of Aquarius, we may see a rising up of the collective. Some of us may be losing patience with the status quo and may feel emboldened to come forward with new ideas. A balance will be required of both the Aquarian desire to see and utilize new ideas, and the Martian desire for quick action to remedy “fix” what is no longer working. It would be wonderful to think that this combination of energies, may have the power to put an end to the current worldly chaos, and bring about new solutions that hold peace and freedom at the core of all decisions. In our personal lives, we may want to gallop ahead, leaving old ideas behind, impatient to make workable changes, so we may enjoy and happy future. There could be a push/pull energy at work, and not all of our ideas may be possible, decisions will have to be made. Because of Mars’ impatience he can be insensitive to the needs of others, and because of Aquarius’ ability to pull back emotionally, we should all take care how we approach sensitive topics, our words may be just as hurtful as our actions. While this astro combination will affect everyone to a degree, those who have personal Mars and/or Aquarius chart influences, will feel this energy combination the most. 
  2. March 5th @10:30 pm(PT) March 6th @1:30 am(ET)Venus enters into the sign of ♒ Aquarius. Venus is the planet of money and beauty. Intellectual connections are going to be at the top of the agenda. We want to know what is really going, and we aren’t “afraid” to ask questions. It’s not about being difficult, it is a true and honest desire to understand the people and situations around us. Our relationships may take on more of a logical outlook, emotionally we may feel the need to “park” our emotions for a while, in an attempt to grasp the logic and common sense of the situations and relationships that make up our world, in both the personal and global sense.  While this astro combination will affect everyone to a degree, those who have personal Venus and/or Aquarius chart influences, will feel this energy combination the most.
