  • Moon Phase: 3rd

What does it all mean?

  • Taurus needs emotional and material security, so we may find we are more interested in our financial affairs, and we may need to feel secure in our home and work environments. 
  • This may prove to be a good time to make investments for the future or to begin plans for the next financially responsible phase. 
  • Some of us may be feeling more frugal than usual, preferring to save our funds instead of spend them. 
  • Taurus has lots of patience, making this an opportune time time to deal with people/projects/situations that take up more time than we would like. 
  • Things that give us pleasure, such as comfort foods, wine, relaxing, good music and giving/receiving  are all things we may enjoy right now. It’s a FEEL GOOD moon sign. 😊
  • Keep your temper under check if you can, Taurus is very, very patient and it takes a lot to make her angry, but watch out once she has had enough, she will certainly let you know.. 
  • Take your time when the moon is in this sign, there is no need to hurry, and you probably won’t get very far if you do… so sit back and enjoy the ride… 🙂 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. Those with strong Scorpio placements in their charts will also be effected. 
    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus

  • Notes:
  • October 10th:  Happy Thanksgiving Canada  
  • Note 2:

  • Mercury enters the sign of Libra on October 10th @7:51pm (ET) @4:51pm(PT).
  • Mercury, who recently turned direct, is the planet of communication, technology and transportation, he is the messenger within the zodiac.
  • Libra, is mostly concerned about justice, harmony, everyone getting along, good manners and all things bright and beautiful..
  • We can expect to find ourselves being more conscience about the way that we present ourselves to others.
  • It may be easier to deal with one to one relationships, as Libra is all about relationships… 😊.
  • A good time to talk things out, communicate our needs and desires with our partners, be they in our personal or business/work lives…
  • It could be slightly more of a challenge to make up our minds, or act decisively during this time, which, for some people could prove to be a blessing in disguise. 😉
  • Make good use of this time, it can prove to be a time of healing and organizing. 

The Moon and Astrology



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. 

Thanks to Paula Belluomini present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.

Voluntary Recall of Bernat® Tizzy™ (knitting and Crocheting yarn)…

SGC Admin: Attention Knitters and Crocheters….. we received the following in our inbox recently and wanted to help get the word out… please share with any knitters and crocheter’s you may know who enjoy making things for little ones… 🙂 thanks… 🙂



  • PRODUCT RECALL: Bernat Tizzy

Dear Bernat Tizzy Consumer,

All knitted or crocheted garments or blankets can come unraveled or pulled apart if they are “snagged”. The potential for these snags can vary depending on the tension of the stitch or the construction of the yarn.

We believe that the risk of snags with Tizzy may be higher than normal. In finished knit or crochet items, the yarn can unravel or snag and form a loop, posing an entanglement hazard to young children. Since this yarn is marketed towards babies we have decided to voluntarily recall this product from the marketplace and discontinue its sale.

Since all yarn is prone to a certain level of risk in this regard, this was a very difficult decision. However, the safety of children is our first concern. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this Voluntary Recall may cause you.
