Taurus: Zodiac Girl Series with Clipping Path Stock Vector - 4539055

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

  • Date:  April 16 4:51 am (ET) 1:51 am (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Taurus: 
  • Moon Phase: 1st
  • Void-of-Course: April 17 6:05 pm (ET) 3:05 pm (PT) to Moon in Gemini on the 18th: Moon in Taurus v/c is one of the 4 “good signs”
  • House(s): 7th: 7th house of relationships and partnerships…
  • Opportunity Period: None:
  • ***NOTE*** Saturn turns retrograde on April 17th 9:47 pm (ET) 6:47 pm (PT)… 

What does it all mean?

  • Taurus needs emotional and material security, so we may find we are more interested in our financial affairs. 
  • This may prove to be a good time to make investments for the future or to begin plans for the next financially responsible phase. 
  • Taurus has lots of patience, indicating this could be a good time to deal with people/projects/situations that take up more time than is liked. 
  • Things that give us pleasure, such as comfort foods, wine, relaxing, good music and giving/receiving “loving’s” are all things we may enjoy right now
  • Some of us may be feeling more frugal than usual, preferring to save our funds instead of spend them. 
  • 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… 🙂 
  • In the 7th house: Focus will be on relationships and partnerships… perhaps some reminiscing about the past and the folks you have spent time with. Some folks may do some “personal work” regarding their approach to close personal relationships. Mercury is still retrograde, indicating a reassessment  of present relationships, however, assessment only is advised, any changes should be delayed until Mercury and Mars are back on track again. 
  • In the 8th house: This can be a good time to go over insurance policy’s, check our investments, review our state of mind, what’s important… Some folk may find they are ending a relationship, or thinking about it… Death of a loved one, the loss of a job, the “death” of a business or business idea are all possible during the next couple of days… Surgery should go well for those who need it now.
  • For some folks 7th house issues may be on the agenda… these will relate to relationships and partnerships. 
  • 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.. 
  • This moon sign will have more of an effect on those who have the following in their charts.

    • Moon in Taurus,
    • Sun in Taurus,
    • Venus in Taurus
    • Sun in Libra
    • Moon in Libra
    • Moon in the 2nd house
    • Moon in the 7th house
    • Any aspects to the Moon, Venus.
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Taurus
  • Those with strong Libra and Scorpio placements in their charts may also be effected.

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-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  (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.

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life…Transiting New Moon in Aries…April 2018

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 life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio April 2018

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

You Aries folk are what get us all going… ready to explore and move mountains… well for a little while at least… Even though you guys and gals are full of vim and vigor you aren’t really the kind to stick around to the see the completion of your pioneering projects thanks to your lack of patience… You can get bored easily and the next interesting thing/person that comes along can perk up your ears encouraging you to find out more….. You are fun to be around and many may wish they were more like you, but you can have your awkward moments when you forget about the feelings of others as Aries puts your own needs first…. Having a partner that understands this is important, but you need to slow down enough so that he/she can explain to you when you have done “wrong” . You are the beginning of the Zodiac and as such, you are like the child who needs a constant gentle reminder to slow down… :)

Pisces: Feminine, Mutable, Water: 

  • Pisces folk are compassionate and can have a habit of rescuing strays, (people and animals)… Feeling everything around you, (emotionally) it can be exhausting for you to spend too much time among crowds 🙂 
  • Spending time alone is good for you and should be encouraged as long as you don’t spend too much time in your “wonder land” … a place most Pisces’s know…. 🙂
  • You are encouraged to be aware of people who may take advantage of your kindness… use your strong psychic ability to sort the “wheat from the chaff” 

**Venus (relationships and money) and Mercury (communications and transportation) are both in the sign of Pisces until early March**

Thanks for caring guys….
