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….

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Scorpio February 2018

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : macchia
  • Date(s): February 5 @ 10:56 pm (ET) 7:56 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Scorpio
  • Moon Phase: 3rd
  • Void-of-Course: February 8 @ 2:16 am (ET) February 7 @ 11:16 pm (PT) to Moon in Sagittarius on the morning of the 8th of February : Scorpio is NOT one of the “good” v/c signs.
  • House(s): 
  • 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…
  • 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 8th house
    • Aspects to the Moon, Mars, Venus or Pluto
    • Ascendant or Mid-heaven in Scorpio

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… The moon stays with each sign 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-off-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. 

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

SGC Admin: Back from vacation… :)

Hi folks… we are back from a very fun and relaxing vacation… 

DSCN1126

 

We had never experienced an all inclusive holiday resort, and it was high time that we did… While it is very different from our usual vacations, it was a lot of fun… the folks at the resort work so hard to make everyone’s stay a happy and safe time… 🙂 

The entertainment crew, were just awesome, they did a great job at everything they did… be it encouraging folks to partake in water areobics, bingo, salsa lessons, or the many other fun games they come up with, to putting on fantastic shows in the evening… wonderful set desgins, beautiful costumes and just so much fun to watch…. 

Thanks to our sister Michelle, who encouraged and helped us financially to make this fun in the sun, rolling the ocean vacation possible, partly in honour of Hubby’s retirement… 🙂 

WARNING If you are fair skined, or have thin hair on the top of you head… YOU MUST USE: Sunscreen: A wide brimed hat or baseball cap: Sunglasses. Especially if going in the ocean,… it is very easy to burn under the Mexican Sun…. severe burns include swelling and blistering… ALOE VERA is your friend. 🙂 

DSCN1148

SGC staff are slowly getting back into some sort of a routine, 🙂 but after the last few years and the experiences they have brought us on a personal level, we are more inclined towards focusing on the fun side of life. 🙂

Please bear with us if our responses to your emails are slow in coming, or if our posts aren’t always updated as quickly as they “should” be … 🙂 we haven’t forgotten, we are just loving life, and we WILL get back to you… 🙂

The Moon and Astrology: How it affects our daily life… Transiting Moon in Libra June 2017

Present Moon Sign/Phase/House:

http://www.123rf.com: Copyright : helein
  • Date: June 2 2017 8:04 pm (ET) 5:04 pm (PT)
  • Moon Sign: Libra
  • Moon Quarter: 2nd
  • Void-of-Course: June 5 4:57 am (ET) 1:57 am (PT) to Moon in Scorpio later that evening: Moon v/c in Libra is not one of the 4 void of course “good signs” Relationship issues may not go as planned, leave the planning until after the V.O.C moon…
  • House: 1st: House of Self
  • 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 1st house: Our energy levels can be higher when the moon travels through this house along with our confidence levels. We have more drive now and we want to get going with our plans. Emotions could be on the surface and in our eagerness to connect with others through discussion we may be more sensitive to negative come backs. Feeling a little braver under this Aries ruled house, we are more apt to want to take care of our loves ones or come to their defense. 
  • This moon’s influence may be positive for: Buying for speculation, collection on debts, Entertain guests, buying clothes and beauty treatments. 
  • 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
      •  **Moon in 1st house
      • **Moon in 7th house
      • **Any aspects to the Moon or Venus
      • **Midheaven in Libra
      • **Ascendant in Libra
      • **Those with strong Aries influence in their charts**
