Mercury Retrograde: Enters Storm on March 15 Retrograde March 22 2018: Mercury Turns Direct on April 15 2018

NOTE: MERCURY TURNS DIRECT: April 15 2018: Remains in storm until April 24th. While some things may start to feel as if they are moving forward or ahead, expect delays until after the 24th. Communications should start to get better and run more smoothly… Transportation and Technical issues may not get solved completely, but they should get a little better… 😉

Mercury Retrograde… we hear and see this quite a bit in and out of the astrology world…. and sometimes Mercury gets a bad wrap when he goes retro… but it’s not all bad.. 🙂  When Mercury goes retrograde it would appear from our Earth’s prospective that Mercury is moving backwards….. hmmm no wonder he can cause some confusion…  Yet, if we can “respect” Mercury while he is in this position by applying the “rules” that fit with this circumstance, we can come out of this period with a smile instead of a frown… 🙂 

The “rules” are as follows… 

  • Pay attention to and do as many things possible with the two letters RE in front of the word… for example… REnovate: REdecorate: REdo: REcreate: REnew: 
  • Try not to begin any new projects: 
  • Might not be a good time to start a new relationship
  • May be a good time to renew a relationship (depending on personal chart data)
  • Try not to sign important documents. Exception renewing a mortgage, but be very careful about the small print. 
  • If you need to sign important papers, make sure you understand everything, if you don’t ask questions. 
  • Mistakes in communications and messages are highly likely during this period, so read and REread before you sign or commit. 
  • Expect delays in communications or in getting your questions answered. 
  • Expect misunderstandings in communications
  • Have patience when communicating
  • Have patience when waiting for a reply or an answer
  • New plans made during this time may not work out as planned or may need to be REdone at a later date

When Mercury is said to be in “storm” he is moving very slowly, the effects of the Mercury Retrograde will apply to a slightly lesser degree.

  • Mercury enters its “storm” on March 15 2018 {Write down new ideas with date and time they occurred, when Mercury is “back on track” go through them and discard the ones you know will not work, then see what you can do with the rest :)}
  • He goes Retrograde on March 22:
  • Mercury turns direct on April 15:
  • Mercury is clear of its storm April 24:

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date: April 13: NEW MOON on April 15
  • Moon Sign: Aries 
  • Moon Phase: 4th moves into the 1st on the 16th hold off on new projects till then if you can.
  • Void-off-Course: April 16 6:05 pm (ET) April 15 10:59 pm (PT) to Moon into Taurus on the 16th : Moon v/c in Aries is not one of the 4 “good signs” Make sure you get all the facts before making any commitments..
  • House(s): 
  • Opportunity Period: None

**Note** The New Moon happens in Aries April 15 2018.

The influence of the Aries moon will be stronger. Take extra care when driving, and those who suffers from headaches may need to stay away from their triggers for a day or two. Some of us may be more impatient than usual, so try and stay away from folk and situations that will irritate you or bring out the aggressor in you.

If you have extra energy or feel restless try doing something physical, sex, exercise, walking, or playing a sport. Pent up energy is likely to come up 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 maybe for some of to enter into the work force for the 1st time.. however, the moon is still in the 4th quarter (endings) … so hang on until April 16th when she moves into the 1st quarter if you can, 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 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, 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.
  • 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 Virgo or Libra placement in their charts
    • Moon in Aries:
    • Sun in Aries:
    • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries:
    • Mars in Aries::
    • Sun in Libra:
    • Aspects to the Moon or Mars:

 

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 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  (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.

April 1 is Easter Sunday 

& April Fools day… 

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Zodiac signs with women's faces- Scorpius Stock Photo - 24022483
http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): April 1 @ 6:57 pm (ET) 3:57 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: April 3 @ 12:06 pm (ET)  @ 9:06 am (PT) to Moon in Sagittarius late Tuesday night (PT) or early Wednesday morning : Scorpio is NOT one of the “good” v/c signs.
  • House(s): 1st house of “the self”
  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?  

  • Scorpio is very intense and probably the most sensitive of the zodiac signs. She is ruled by Pluto now, but was once considered to be ruled by Mars… she likely retains some of the Martian influence. 
  • The moon relates to our emotions, indicating we could be feeling everything more deeply for the next couple of days
  • We can immerse ourselves in our projects now.
  • Watch for becoming obsessed with someone or something…. not everyone falls for someone at the same time and patience may be needed regarding sensitive relationship matters
  • Be sure that your partner, friend, lover, co-worker or school friend is really trying to upset your personal apple cart before making waves
  • We could be encouraged or directed towards taking risks or doing things we wouldn’t normally do, especially those of a group or team nature. 
  • Sex may be high on the agenda for some of us… so if you don’t want to help the world population grow right now use caution… 🙂 
  • Some of us may be highly creative right now, while others get connected to their psychic side… 
  • Secrets may be told now… we can be enticed to open up to others about our deepest feelings/fantasy’s…
  • In the 1st house: Our energy level can be higher with this influence, we can be restless and change our minds… We can also be more nurturing and our feelings can be hurt easier as we are more sensitive to our emotional self. Take care not to take offence at what others may say… It’s a good time to meditate and get in touch with our inner beings now. 
  • Moon in Scorpio is good for advertising to sell personal possessions, move, plant bulbs from seed {perhaps not yet for us northern folks ;)}
  • While we will all be effected slightly by the Scorpio moon, she will have a greater effect on those who have the following in their charts..

    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Moon in Aries
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Ascendant in Scorpio
    • Mid-heaven in Scorpio
    • Moon in the 1st house
    • Aspects to the Moon or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

  • What does it mean?
  • Venus is the planet of money and beauty, she is the most feminine of the planets and is sometimes referred to as the “Goddess of Love” She rules Libra and Taurus.
  • Taurus is ruled by Venus, so she is probably happy visiting here.. Taurus needs emotional and material security, can be slow to learn but once she has grasped the lesson she won’t soon forget it… 
  • Money can come our way while Venus is here, perhaps in the form of a raise, bonus, award or inheritance
  • Good time to sort out the closet and if you live in a warmer climate it’s a good time to set up a yard sale. 
  • While money may be coming our way in some form or another, we could also be tempted to spend more, especially if we are drawn to works of art or “pretty things” for our home, office or person.
  • Some of us may be tempted by comfort foods and drink
  • Venus is sitting in the 7th house (equal) as she moves into her comfort sign of Taurus. Venus knows all about love and relationships, focus will be on partnerships and relationships during the next few weeks. 
  • Getting out and about might not be at the top of the agenda if we are feeling tired, instead staying cozy, warm and safe in our homes may sound like a better idea
  • Those who aren’t happy with, icky, dirty, sticky or “ugly” will feel it even more now
  • Could be a good time for those who enjoy singing
  • This astrological event will have a slight effect on everyone but will have a stronger effect on the those who have any of the following in their charts.
  •          Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Taurus
    • Moon in Taurus
    • Aspects to Venus

  • Moon Sign: Libra @ 1:52 pm (PT): March 22 @ 10:52 am
  • Moon Phase: 2nd 
  • Void-of-Course: April 1 @ 2:29 pm (ET) 11:29 am (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. 
  • Opportunity Period: None

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
    • Moon in 12th house,

Full Moon In Libra March 31 2018:

When the moon becomes full in Libra relationships and partnerships may be on the agenda for the some of us… And because the full moon relates to endings and the finishing up of things, places and people, be prepared to let bygones be bygones, keep with you the lessons learnt and the experiences enjoyed… and let go of the rest… 🙂 However, this full moon in Libra could also mean that a long-term “friendship” finally becomes the relationship you hoped it would… 🙂

  • Moon Quarter: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: March 29 @  9:59 pm (PT) March 30 @ 12:59 am (ET) to Moon in Libra in the afternoon:  Virgo Moon v/c is not one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): cusp of 11th…House of hobbies, friends, community and humanitarian works:
  • 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 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: Getting together with friends and doing community work might be on the agenda for some of us … Hobbies and doing what “speaks” to our heart may seem to be the most important thing in the world right now… Enjoy… 🙂 .
  • 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

  • The Leo Moon loves to 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

  • Might prove positive for hair cuts, make overs. 
  • In the 1oth house of career public image. Those looking to boost or make changes in their career’s/line of work could be looking at a positive and productive few days.

  • This may be a positive time for: Beauty treatments: Borrowing money: Buying a home: Entertaining Guests: Fixing Cars: Hair Cut (For thickness): Moving: Mowing the Law (to retard growth): Painting: Pouring Cement: Starting new construction: Starting a new job: 
  • This moon period will affect everyone, but more so those who have the following in their charts:

  • Sun in Leo:  
  • Moon in Aquarius
