The Moon & Astrology; how it affects our daily life: Transiting NEW Moon In Leo August 2015

The Moon and Astrology

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 is not 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.

What does it all mean?

  • The Leo Moon Loves Drama, so be warned… 
  • The Leo Moon loves to be noticed and recognized, so be prepared to “pump up” your loved ones and if you happened to have a Leo influence in yourself, be aware of how you may be going about getting recognized or appreciated… If you play your cards right this could be a positive time when you get to be where you need to be.
  • Try not to be overly “vain” and be prepared for drama at any-time from any direction
  • Try not to over react and if it’s not you doing the over reacting, try not to get caught up in the drama, or to encourage the over reactor
  • It’s a good time to check out the local talent, take in a down town show, get starry-eyed with your lover, or perhaps look for a new one, as romance is high on the priority ladder during this time. 
  • Might prove positive for hair cuts, make overs. 
  • In the 10th house: For some of us focus will be on our jobs and career’s, and this may be a positive time for folk who are looking for work, so stay open to possibilities and watch for opportunities. Behave while in social/business situations. Those who have families may need to keep their work at work, when it comes to family time. 
  • This moon period will affect everyone, but more so those who have the following in their charts: And those who have a strong Capricorn or Aquarius placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Leo:
    • Sun in Leo:  
    • Moon in Aquarius
    • Sun in Aquarius

New Moon in Leo:

The moon will renew herself on August 14 2015…

  • Traditionally when the moon is new, it is said to be a good time to begin something… The moon moves into the 1st phase on August 15th, and it is suggested that we hold off on our new projects, ideas, relationships until the 15th.
  • Leo is a creative fire sign, indicating this may be a good opportunity for creative folk to show off their wares…
  • Ideas for decorating, fashion design and in any artistic endeavor can come quickly under this influence.. so get out your pencil and paper and jot them down.
  • Work related projects may get a “face-lift” or a green light to proceed.
  • For the true animal lover, this could be a good time to finally adopt that furry family member, but check and double check everything before making up your mind if the moon is void off course, which it is until August 15 @ 5:27 am (ET) 2:27 am (PT), when it moves into the sign of Virgo. 
  • And for those wanting to start a family go for it.. however, for those who aren’t quite ready, be advised… 🙂 
  • Enjoy creative time spent with good friends
  • New friends could come into your life now

New Moon August 25 2014 in Virgo

Our lady begins her renewal process on

August 25 2014 at the end of the 4th quarter in the 11th house

The New Moon is about beginnings and starts … it’s the time to look forward and put new ideas and projects into motion. 

New moon in the 4th quarter. A good time to “draw back” to reflect on past events and what has been (or has not been) accomplished. Time to clear the slate and plan for the New Moon stage. 

New Moon in the 1st quarter: Our lady becomes visible 5.5 to 12 hours after ‘her birth” (the time she becomes new) she is delicate but strong, eager to start anew almost with the innocence of a babe she wants to begin again and explore all that she can. This is the absolute best time to begin your new projects.

Although this month’s new moon falls in the sign of Virgo, there may still be some Leo overtones about… 🙂

New moon in Virgo: Virgo is all about detail, which can sometimes incite worry where it’s not needed. If you are beginning a new project, or planning for the future, don’t be too hard on yourself it everything doesn’t seem to be perfect… You will see the flaws that need fixing, but don’t go crazy, sometimes mistakes are necessary 🙂

If you have been wanting to get in shape, or step up your work out routine now is a good time to start, it’s also a good time to begin a diet as our minds wonder to our health and hygiene… Cleaning out that closet or the car may also prove to be fabulous therapy…

New Moon in Leo: Leo loves drama, after all he is ruled by the Sun, without which we could not exist, it’s no wonder those with a Leo influence can sometimes get carried away. 🙂 It’s a good time to start creative projects, and may even prove helpful if auditioning for parts in a play, movie or band. But watch out for the innocence of the new moon combined with the “showiness” and innate pride of the Lion… Remember your p’s and q’s, and that we can’t all be noticed for our talents all of the time… 🙂 have fun, be creative, spend time around animals and children and who knows what one can achieve under this new moon… 🙂 

Moon in the 11th house: House of teams, groups, friends and causes. May be a good time to sign up with a team/group activity (gym). Watch out you don’t get carried away regarding charity events and causes. If starting a new job or volunteer position be open to new friendships. 

Moon in the 4th House: You may find spending some time alone in retrospect helpful if contemplating  next phase of your life, but don’t stay there too long… 🙂 Focus may be on the home and private life now. 

This months new moon will have more influence on those with the following: Moon in Leo: Moon in Virgo: Sun in Leo: Sun in Virgo: Moon in the 11th house: Ascendant in Virgo: Midheaven in Virgo:

For those who have oppositions or square aspects to the moon, these may prove to be challenging times, if this is the case you are advised not to force issues at this time.  For those who have trines or sextiles, these may prove to be opportune times.


Void off Course Moon

When the moon is void off course we can be unsure as to how we are really feeling about something or someone, it’s therefore advisable to stick to routine tasks at this time. If any legal documents or long-term commitments are in the picture take care to make sure you understand everything that is involved before signing… Delaying important decisions and commitments is highly recommended when the moon is void off course… 

Solar Eclipse

A solar eclipse can have an influence on us making things, plans, issues and or situations that happen during an eclipse last longer than usual. Sometime’s it’s unavoidable and plans have to be made, ideas need to be put into motion and there are some people we just can’t get away from or do without…. In these cases patience is strongly advised. Our last Solar Eclipse was on April 29 2014.

When the moon is visiting with Leo we had better be on our best behaviour, as Leo loves a crowd or at least to stand out in a crowd, or maybe have a partner or family member who stands out in a crowd… The following should be remembered as the Moon makes play with Leo…

August 6 2013 5:51 pm the new moon will spend a very brief time in Leo.

She will be void off course from 5:51 pm  August 6 2013 until 11:57 pm (8:57pm); where she will visit with the sign Virgo in the 1st quarter.

The New Moon is about beginnings and starts … it’s the time to look forward and put new ideas and projects into motion. For August’s new moon, half an hour before she becomes new and half an hour after she has become new is an excellent time to start something important: 

New moon in the 4th quarter. A good time to “draw back” to reflect on past events and what has been (or has not been) accomplished. Time to clear the slate and plan for the New Moon stage. 

New Moon in the 1st quarter: Our lady becomes visible 5.5 to 12 hours after ‘her birth” (the time she becomes new) she is delicate but strong, eager to start anew almost with the innocence of a babe she wants to begin again and explore all that she can. This is the absolute best time to begin your new projects, especially any projects or ideas that relate to the home and family. Family is anyone you wish to include which for some may be college’s friends, neighbours and co-workers. 

When the moon is void off course we can be unsure as to how we are really feeling about something or someone, it’s therefore advisable to stick to routine tasks at this time. If any legal documents or long-term commitments are in the picture take care to make sure you understand everything that is involved before signing… Delaying important decisions and commitments is highly recommended when the moon is void off course… 

August’s New Moon will carry the Leo and Virgo influences: 

New Moon in Leo: Leo loves drama, after all he is ruled by the Sun, without which we could not exist, it’s no wonder those with a Leo influence can sometimes get carried away. 🙂 It’s a good time to start creative projects, and may even prove helpful if auditioning for parts in a play, movie or band. But watch out for the innocence of the new moon combined with the “showiness” and innate pride of the Lion… Remember your p’s and q’s, and that we can’t all be noticed for our talents all of the time… 🙂 have fun, be creative, spend time around animals and children and who knows what one can achieve under this new moon… 🙂

This months new moon will have more influence on those with the following: Moon in Leo: Moon in Virgo: Sun in Leo: Sun in Virgo: Moon in the 4th house:  

For those who have oppositions or square aspects to the moon, these may prove to be challenging times, if this is the case you are advised not to force issues at this time.  For those who have trines or sextiles, these may prove to be opportune times.
