  • Date: October 9 @11:24 am (ET) @ 8:24am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Sagittarius 
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: October 10th @ 9;30 pm (PT) October 11th @ 12:30 am (ET)  to moon into Capricorn in the afternoon on the 11th:  Moon v/c in Sagittarius is one of the 4 void of course  “good signs”.
  • Opportunity Period: October 9th @10:18 pm (ET) @ 7:18 pm (PT) to moon into Capricorn on the 11th. Good time for renewal, even with the Mercury retrograde. 

What does it all mean?

    • Sagittarius is the most “easy-going” of the fire signs and is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet”
    • We are going to want our personal freedom now, so take care partners who have a possessive or jealous tendencies, they might not be tolerated for the next couple of days. 
    • Because Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter “the lucky planet” we may be feeling luckier then usual… Just take care not to go over the budget… 🙂 *See Neptune note below*
    • We could have more energy for fun things such as music, sports and shows. If you are now “allowed” to participate in such activities, have a blast 🙂 
    • It’s easier to try something new and exciting just take care not to get carried away.
    • Could be a good time to take a few days for rest, relaxation and laughter
    • Good time for day dreaming and making fantastic plans for the future.
    • The next few days may be positive for: Borrowing money, Buying a car, sending mail or starting a diet. 
  • Moon in Sagittarius
  • Jupiter in Sagittarius
  • Moon in the 9th house
  • Ascendant in Sagittarius
  • Mid-heaven in Sagittarius
  • Sun in Sagittarius
  • Aspects to the Moon, Venus and Jupiter.
  • Those with Gemini chart placements. 

Notes: 

  • October 10th:
  • Saturn, the planet of restrictions and discipline, turns direct. He is the ruler of Capricorn and connected to the 10th house of career and public image. Situations regarding work, career, vocation may begin to move ahead a little better. 
  • October 11th is :
  • Indigenous Peoples’ Day: Columbus Day (US): Thanksgiving Day (CA)

  • 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.

NOTES: Pluto the Planet that rules Scorpio, is secretive, mystical and a little bit “off the wall” 😉 He is powerful where ever he lands in your chart… Pluto is one of the slowest moving of the planets, he spends a lot of time in one sign and is therefor referred to as a “generational planet” as he affects a generation of people… 🙂 On April 27 Pluto turns retrograde, he stays retrograde until the beginning of October… It is unlikely that a Pluto retrograde motion will affect anyone greatly, however, those with strong Pluto chart influences may find some life area’s a little more challenging for the next few months… The best way to handle any retrograde planetary influences is to “go with the flow” don’t expect miracles and be prepared to do things over again.. Patience is the key, the retrograde motion can be a blessing in a disguise. 

NOTE 2: Shining blue neon zodiac Mercury symbolMercury, the planet of communication, transportation and technology turns Direct on June 22nd, However, he remains in “storm” until July 1st. It should be getting easier to commute our needs, and any transportation or technology issues, should be closer to getting resolved. Because Mercury remains in “storm” until July 1st, care should be taken regarding any long term commitments agreed upon before July 1st. Mercury’s influence can have an effect on everyone, however, those with strong Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius (the moon is now in Sagittarius) or Pisces chart influences may feel the effects more.

**NOTE 3**: planet-glyph-jupiter-380x235[1]Jupiter, the planet of expansion and “luck” turned retrograde on June 20th. He will remain in retrograde motion until Mid October. His influence becomes personal when there is a strong Jupiter chart influence, such as the Sun, Moon or Mercury being in the sign that Jupiter rules, which is Sagittarius. When a planet goes retrograde it’s like when your house gets turned upside down because you haven’t been able to organize and sort it the way you would like. We are slightly muddled and may have a challenge seeing the whole picture and plans that we make don’t turn out the way we had hoped. In the case of a Jupiter retrograde, because he is such a happy and positive planet some of us may face frustrations or set backs in areas where we thought we had everything under control… Some folks may have a tough time sticking to a diet, and while the Jupiter/Sagittarius energy loves sports, getting in our exercise could also be a challenge… As with all retrograde planetary movements, our best bet is to be patient and go with the flow as much as we can. You can find out which area of life may be affected by the Jupiter retrograde, by checking the connections made in the house where the transiting Jupiter retrograde falls within your own personal chart. 


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…. 🙂
