The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life. Transiting Moon in Virgo 2016: New Moon & Solar Eclipse September 1 2016:

 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.

  • Date: August 31 2016
  • Moon Sign: Virgo 11:22 am (ET) 8:22 am (PT)
  • Moon Quarter: 4th: Moves into the 1st on September 2
  • Void-of-Course: September 2 @ 6:13 pm (ET) 3:13 pm (PT) to 8:55 pm (ET) 5:55 pm (PT): Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 11/12th: 11th house of teamwork, networking, gadgets and humanitarian behavior. 12th house of hospitals, schools, correctional facilities, and what is “hidden”.
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Virgo is 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 other’s 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: Team work and co-operation within group activities is indicted. For some folk being emotionally distant can be easier now. 
  • In the 12th house: Hospital visits may be on the agenda as a patient or as a visitor.. Take care who you share you inner most secrets with. Old “wounds or upsets may surface, forgiving and letting are recommended… 🙂 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And those who have a strong Aquarius or Pisces placement in their charts..
  • Moon in Virgo
  • Sun in Virgo
  • Venus in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo
  • Mid-heaven in Virgo
  • Moon in 6th, 11th or 12th house
  • Any aspects to the Moon or Mercury.
  • Midheaven in Virgo
  • Ascendant in Virgo

NEW MOON: September 1 2016

This months new moon will take on Virgo traits… the ability to see all the details, and a tendency to worry too much. While the new moon is the best time to begin a new project, it is advisable to wait until Friday the 2nd to do so. 🙂 Use this time to tidy up, see to loose ends, get some organizing down… 🙂 This New Moon will have a stronger effect on those who have Virgo influences in their chart. (see above).

How to set your intentions for on the New Moon… 

What changes would you like to bring into your life now? The new moon is the perfect time to let the Universe know what it is you would like to bring into your world… ask for guidance in finding direction and focus… Once written out on paper and heartfelt words said, light the paper on fire and let burn in a heat-resistant container… (or ash tray) 🙂 

(never leave a lit flame unsupervised: Not recommended for children/youth without adult supervision)

Solar Eclipse: 

  • With the solar Eclipse happening in Virgo, emphasis will be placed upon health and work… While Virgo cannot help but see the detail in everything and strives for perfection, it is advisable to also see Pisces view of the world, compassion and understanding that to “err is human”  
  • The influence of the Solar Eclipse may last up to 6 months, and can give some of us time to re-group and re-asses our priorities, especially our day-to-day activities.
  • It’s a good time to begin a new health regime, or to have a look at, and make changes to, our diet. If we aren’t feeling 100% in ourselves physically or emotionally, it’s time to find out why and get some solutions in order.
  • The next few months will be about the practical side of life, time spend at home, with family is on the agenda… seeing to appointments and making sure life is secure and everything is sorted…
  • This Solar Eclipse will affect everyone to a small degree, but will affect those with the following in their charts. 

Virgo:Pisces:Gemini:Sagittarius

  • Date: April 19 2016
  • Moon Sign: Libra 7:24 am (ET): 4:24 am (PT)
  • Moon Phase: 2nd 
  • Void-of-Course: April 21 @ 2:13 am (ET) April 20 @ 11:13 pm (PT)  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: 12th house of our psyche, institutions, secrets, fantasy and illusion.

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, 
  • In the 12 house, we may feel more inclined to spend time alone. For some of us it may mean a trip to the hospital, to visit someone or for a procedure. Secrets may be created or affairs of the heart fantasized about, take care what you tell who during the next few days, and be careful to forget the secrets you are told. 
  • 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

**Note: Keep in mind both Mars and Pluto are in retrograde motion… 🙂 Frustrations may abound, folks who usually make choices with little thinking may find they are hesitant to do so…. other’s may find they have difficulty putting thought into action… feelings of restlessness and a strong desire for change or to try something new could be on the agenda. Romantic and sexual desires are strong, yet beginning a new relationship now may not turn out exactly as one would have hoped. Projects may begin with enthusiasm, with high hopes for a fabulous outcome.. keep in mind, the outcome may not be as we imagined.** 

Those with Mars, Pluto, Aries, Libra, Scorpio and Taurus in strong positions in their charts may be more effected by these two planets being in retrograde motion…

  • Date: Wednesday November 10 2014  to November 12 2014. 
  • Moon Sign: Cancer at 3:38 am (ET) 12:38 am (PT)
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-off-Course: Yes: November 12 2014 @ 4:16 am (ET): 1:16 am (PT). Until 1:44 pm(ET): 10:44 am (PT):  Moon v/c in Cancer is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House: 12th: House of fantasy, dreams, meditation, institutions, psychic abilities…. 
  • Opportunity Period: Yes. 4:54 am (ET) 1:54 am (PT) November 11 2014 to 4:16 am (ET) 1:16 am (PT) November 12 2014 This can be a very productive O/P.. get cracking if you can… 🙂 

What does it all mean?

  • The moon is happy in the sign of Cancer because she rules here. 
  • We can be more nurturing when there is a cancer moon
  • Domestic chores and responsibilities may be easier to do now, in fact some of us may be very happy making our home comfortable and safe
  • Cooking may be fun to do now,  so go ahead and try out that new recipe
  • The more emotionally sensitive of us, may take offence or feel slighted or more vulnerable during the Cancer moon… Caution is advised though, check your facts before you “accuse”. 
  • Some of us may feel needy, while others of us are happy to be the cuddler, helping our loved ones feel secure and in deed needed. Caution is advised that some of us can go over board on the needy thing during this moon period, so be careful if you don’t want to “scare” someone off… 
  • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
  • With the moon in the 12 house we may be hesitant to see the world as it really is. It is far easier to “go away in our minds” to our perfect place. This is a good time for meditation, tarot card study and connecting with spirit. However, some of us may be more vulnerable to lies and deception, while others may find it easier to deceive… 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.
  • Moon in Cancer:
