Mercury enters Capricorn. 

  • Mercury enters the sign of Capricorn on January 25 @ 10:05 pm (ET) @ 7:05 pm (PT).
  • Mercury is currently in retrograde motion. He rules over such things as technology, transportation and communications. When he is in retrograde motion, we can experience challenges, delays, setbacks and needed repairs. 
  • Mercury in Capricorn, may see us being more cautious in our approach to life, to our business, and towards our responsibilities. 
  • We may be slower to jump to conclusions as “gossip” isn’t what drives us right now, we want the facts. 
  • It’s time to get down to business, time to step up and take responsibility for our actions now and in the future. However, having a completely pessimistic or static outlook should be avoided. 😎

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-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.

  • Void-off-Course: December 2 @9:22 pm (PT) December 3 @ 12:22 am (ET) to moon into Sagittarius early morning December 3 
  • Opportunity Period: None

  • Scorpio is very intense and one of the most sensitive of the zodiac signs

NOTES: Neptune Turns Direct

Astrology Dice with zodiac symbol of Pisces and its ruling planet Neptune

  • Neptune, the planet of romance, nostalgia, magic, avoidance and fantasy, turns direct on December 1 @ 8:22 am (ET) @ 5:22 am (PT). 
  • Neptune is our “dreamy” planet, its’ where we escape to especially when life has been particularly challenging. When Neptune goes retrograde as he has been since June 25, our sense of what is real and what isn’t can become cloudy. 
  • As Neptune becomes direct, the veil that has been preventing us from seeing clearly slowly begins to lift… Relationships may be on the agenda of what needs to be improved or “discarded”..
  • Neptune is creative, and now that he has turned direct, creative ideas, projects and plans can begin to flow freely. 
  • Under the retrograde motion of Neptune, it’s possible to become more “connected” with our psychic side. With Neptune direct, we can take what we have learnt over the last 5 months and apply it to todays situations or challenges. 
  • It is hopeful that as Neptune turns direct, the cloud will disperse so one may see the reality happening around them. 
  • Because Neptune is an outer and slower moving planet, his influence is subtle for most of us… However, those with the following chart influences, may feel his influence stronger. “go with your gut instincts” 🙂 
  • Pisces in Neptune
  • Pisces Sun 
  • Pisces Moon
  • Any aspects to Neptune 
  • Neptune in the 12th house
  • To a lessor effect: Any Virgo chart influences.

NOTES:

planet symbol vector icon

Venus the planet of love and money moves into the sign of Scorpio on Friday September 10 @4:39 pm (ET) @1:39 pm (PT). This can be a challenging influence, as Scorpio demands intense relationships when she visits with Venus. Some of us may be feeling consumed by our relationships, some of us may wish to be consumed by them… Passionate, experimental maybe, it’s all or nothing when it comes to relationships. However, it may not be so easy to fully trust those we “play” with, as there is an instinctual need to be the one in control… Some folks may be feeling vulnerable where their emotions are concerned. Take care of how, when and where you spend your money. Just because we desire something doesn’t mean we have to buy it.

  • 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 may find it easy to 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… it’s a good idea to drink with trusted friends under this influence, opening up to the “wrong” person, now may be bring challenges in the future. 
  • Good for Moon in Scorpio: Advertise to sell personal possessions, Buy antiques, Move house or business, plant bulbs or seeds (3rd or 4th quarter moon):
  • 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.. and those who have a strong Aries or Taurus or Mars placement in their charts.  
    • Moon in Scorpio 
    • Sun in Scorpio

Our thoughts may be focused on inventions, the unique, humanitarian issues and our hobbies… Changes in the transportation and the world of Technology are possible… Any changes that do occur during this influence may come about seemingly “out of the blue”. Mercury in Aquarius will affect us all, however, those with the following will feel the effects the most: 
  • Mercury in Aquarius
  • Mercury in the 11th house
  • Mercury in the 3rd or 6th house
  • Sun in Aquarius
  • Moon in Aquarius
  • NOTES (3): Venus, the planet of love, relationships and money moves into the sign of Capricorn.
