  • Moon Sign: Pisces
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: September 13 @ 9:33 pm (PT) September 14 @ 12:33 am (ET) to moon in Aries on the afernoon of the 14th Pisces is a fortunate sign for the Void off Course moon.

  • Opportunity Period: None

What does it all mean?

  • Pisces is compassionate and caring but can be taken for granted
  • Sometimes Pisces isn’t about helping others but helping oneself. 
  • We can be more psychic during a Pisces moon, but we can also be easily deceived, so be sure of the “messages” received during this time.
  • Be careful if something sounds too good to be true, look for the hidden agenda
  • We can be susceptible to taking in stray animals and stray people now. 
  • Our hearts can be broken or melted during this time depending on who is telling us what and what may be revealed now. 
  • We can feel more spiritual with a Pisces moon, indicating this could be a good time to join a church or spiritual group
  • Keep an open mind when delving into new spiritual situations, ask questions and don’t believe everything you hear or see. 
  • We can be wistful, impressionable, nostalgic and dreamy now.
  • In the 6th house…our focus may be on how we are feeling physically, some folks may decide that this is a good time to begin a new exercise regime… However, the moon becomes full on Saturday (ET), not usually the best time to begin something new… It may be better to adjust a present routine or amp it up to make it more interesting… When it comes to our working world, we could feel more connected to it, or, for the next few days at least, take our work a little seriously.. 
  • The moon in Pisces will have more effect on those who have the following in their charts: And those who have strong Leo or Virgo placements in their charts
  • Moon in Pisces:
  • Sun in Pisces:

The full moon is traditionally said to be the best time to finish up projects, especially fortunate if the moon is sitting in the 4th quarter. However, this full moon sits in the 2nd quarter, which may indicate that completely finishing off those projects isn’t going to happen…. but we can sure make a lot of progress, perhaps “just about” finishing multiply projects instead of concentrating on just one… 🙂

This months full moon occurs on September 13 @ 9:33 pm (PT) and on September 14 @ 12:33 am

  • The full moon will emphasize the traits mentioned above.
  • Folk should be on the watch for deception… from without as well as from within.
  • It may be easier to day dream especially if reality is offering a harsh alternative, take care when choosing the method of “escape”.
  • Those with addiction challenges may be especially challenged now, finding a safe place is recommended.
  • Medical issue’s and or appointments regarding the feet may be on the agenda.
  • Those with a low tolerance to prescription medications are advised to care over the next few days when taking any, negative or unusual reactions to such, may occur.
  • We may feel more compassion towards our fellow beings, perhaps kindness will prevail..:)
  • Other’s may express unusually selfish behavior. 
  • Emotional situations could be on the agenda. 

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.

  • Date: May 16 2019
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio @ 5:26 pm (ET) 2:26 pm (PT)
  • Moon Phase: 2nd
  • Void-off-Course: May 18 @ 5:11 pm (PT) @ 2:11 pm (ET) to Moon into Sagittarius later in the evening.
  • House: 1st house of the Self. (Equal house system)

The Full Moon occurs on Saturday the 18th of May @ 27 degrees into Scorpio: The Moon changes signs at approxamatley 9:21 pm (ET) 6:21 pm (PT) as she moves into the sign of Sagittarius.

We will feel a Scorpio/Sagittarius influence this full moon…

When the moon is Full, it is said to be the best time for FINISHING up anything that we have already been working on… even if it’s a project we have set aside for a while… :). Some of us may feel more emotional during this month’s full moon as she brings in the watery sensitivity of Scorpio with a slight firey affect from Sagittarius….

Watch out for feelings of jealousy/envy and speaking the truth, or being overly blunt to the point of hurting others. Secrets can come out, or be shared with others, so take care who you share your information with. Some of us may feel more intense about a subject, situation or person, and some of us may feel we need our space… Take care with the handling of all emotional situations, it is easier to express our feelings or to allow them to run amok, check the facts before passing judgements. 

Psychic abilities are likely stronger, and some of us may experience vivid dreams. 

The Full moon will enhance the moon sign’s influence.

 

What does it all mean?

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

  • 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: We could be more self centered, and our concerns will center around what we feel is good for us… Those who have a more negative outlook on thier own life may feel a bit “down in the dumps”, if this is you, get busy doing something that brings you pleasure.  
  • 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 placement in their charts. 
    • Moon in Scorpio
    • Sun in Scorpio
    • Moon in Aries
    • Moon in the 4th house

  • 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… 🙂

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Cancer & Jupiter goes retrograde… April 2019

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

Cartoon crab Stock Vector - 9106697
http://www.123rf.com: Yael Weiss
  • Date: April 10 2019 
  • Moon Sign: Cancer at 11:31 pm (ET) 4:33 pm (PT)
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-off-Course: April 12 @ 7:33 pm (ET) 6:17 am (PT)
  • House: 12th house of institutions, fantasy and illusion (equal house system)
  • Opportunity Period: April 12 @ 4:02 pm (ET) 1:02 pm (PT) to moon into Leo the next morning. Nice time for a stroll… 🙂 

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

    • It’s a time for cuddles, caring, good food and just plain old lovings… 🙂 Enjoy..
    • With the Transiting moon in the 9th house, we may be more inclined towards picking up a new subject, learning a new recipe, checking into house improvements and looking for a few days away to relax and unwind. 
    • In the 12th house of fantasy, illusion and institutions. This is the house of Pisces. Some of us may be more emotional than usual, however, displaying or explaining our emotions may not be so easy… It’s a good time to spend alone, to reflect on the past and recognize our strengths and weaknesses… It’s a time to renew ourselves… Drama isn’t welcome, meditation and serenity is… 🙂 An opportune time to be creative and intuitive… we my dream more and feel more connected to our spiritual selves. Because Cancer is a domestic and sensitive sign, and the moon is at home in this sign, take care not over react to family/domestic situations, you may be seeing things from an overly emotional point of view… let logic have a look in on the situation too…;) 
    • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts. And to a lessor degree… Those with strong Capricorn in their charts may also be affected
    • Moon in Cancer:
    • Ascendant in Cancer:
    • Sun in Cancer:
    • Moon in the 4th house:
    • Moon in the 12th house:
    • Aspects to the Moon: 

Jupiter turns retrograde on the 10th of April, until August 11th.

When Planets go retrograde it usually means some challenges where the planet’s “power” is concerned… Jupiter is the “lucky” or expansive planet and is connected to the sign of Sagittarius and the 9th house.

During this retrograde cycle, Jupiter will visit with the 6th and then the 5th house. (Equal house system)…. While jupiter is retrograde, expansion and good luck are still possible, however, it will likely take more looking than usual to “see the opportunities around us” … Take this time to go over your plans, to view your future in a positive way, with plans to make things better, figure out ways to bring a more positive light into your world…

Exercise, diet and following the same old routine day in and day out, may not be so appealing. We can become restless and perhaps irritated at the “lack” of activity in our lives now. Being patient, while not always easy, is recommended under this influence, as is, keeping our ego under control. Being confident is a good thing, especially when we need to try something new, or we find ourself in an unnerving situation, however, being overly confident is not recommended. Folks should be careful when gambling or taking risks, things may look good, but under this influence they are unlikely to turn out exactly as planned. Children and pets may be around more often, and we will need to be engaged with them… Being creative may be slightly more challenging than usual… but don’t give up, it just means you may have to try a few times to get it right… 🙂 

While this Jupiter retrograde cycle will have an effect on all of us, those with the following are most likely to be affected most directly. 

Sun in Sagittarius

Jupiter in Sagittarius

Jupiter in the 5th or 6th house

Moon in Sagittarius

Those with personal planets in Aries… (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) will reap the benefits of the NEW MOON more than the rest of us… So listen up Aries folks (the sun is also currently in Aries)… It’s time to think about doing something new and exciting. Aries is a pioneering sign, he likes to rush off and be the first to explore…
  • The New Moon is an excellent time to begin something new, however, as she sits in the 4th quarter of the moon on the 5th, (4th quarter moon, is more suited to endings)… it may be better to wait until Saturday the 6th before putting ideas into action. 
  • Those with a strong Libra in their charts may also, to a lessor extent, benefit from the positive effects of the New Moon. 

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 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… 😉
  • In the 9th house of knowledge and travel. This is the house of a fire sign, (Sagittarius). Fire is energy… 🙂 Get out and about and see new things, even if it’s only in your immediate neighbourhood… and keep your eyes and ears open to all around you, it’s a brilliant time to pick up some new knowledge. 
  • check your tempers fire people… know it’s only the “moon talking” sensitive water people… try not to “fan the flames” air people… Earth people, be open to compromise and flexibility. 🙂 

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 Libra placement in their charts

  • Moon in Aries: 
  • Sun in Aries: 
  • Ascendant or Midheaven in Aries: 
  • Mars in Aries Sun in Libra: 
  • Moon in the 1st house
  • Aspects to the Moon or Mars: Moon in the 6th house:
  • Mars/Aries in the 9th house:
  • Retrograde Planets: 
  • When planets are in retrograde motion, and especially when more than one planet is retrograde at a given time, we can expect delays, misunderstandings, re-doing, re-assessing, re-modelling… Issues from the past may resurface, and situations may repeat themselves. Life is unlikely to be moving full steam ahead… patience is advised, along with checking and double checking our work and communication skills… If you don’t understand something, ask… even if you feel “silly” doing so, it’s better to ask now and find out what you need to know, instead of waiting for some time in the future to find out you may have made the wrong decision based on the “wrong” information.
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. 
Thanks to Jim Shawvan present day astrologer, William Lilly 17th century astrologer and Llewellyn’s Daily Planetary Guide for opportunity periods.
