Moon in Capricorn
Although there is some tension today, it is manageable if you stay cool, calm and reserved. Be patient, practical and work smart. That is, think about the outcome you desire in any situation. Then focus on how to get there with the least amount of stress. This can be a very positive and productive day if you have a positive plan. Cooperation, not confrontation. It’s all about attitude.

Moon in Capricorn and Aquarius
There is a little more stress today. Capricorn energy prefers, restraint but quirky Uranus brings a little instability to the day. You may feel off center. It’s time for a shake-up. How you handle it is up to you. Indulge in humor to circumnavigate any negativity. Place yourself in a position to glide past the bumpy spots.

Use this time to relax and look back on the past two days. Complete tasks or turn off and go home. The next few days will be busy and a little unpredictable.
The void ends; the Moon enters Aquarius
Oct 20 @ 9:37 PM ET//6:37 PM PT
If you’re out and about, you should notice an increase in movement and energy. If you’re ready to power down, then do so. If not, just remember that you do have another day ahead of you. Don’t stay out too late.

Wednesday & Thursday
Moon in Aquarius
The key to the next few days is FLEXIBILITY. Life is full of challenges and the challenges you’ll face can be conquered if you detach from the outcomes long enough to see the bigger picture. Let your genius shine through. Don’t be afraid to surprise others. Use your skills to manipulate the facts just enough so others see the possibilities. It’s not about bending another or others to your will. It’s about getting them to see choices and view options with a positive attitude.
The Moon is void in Aquarius @ 9:21 PM PT
Let go. Get to bed early. Tomorrow is going to be a little more taxing. You’ll need your rest.

Friday & Saturday
The Moon is void in Aquarius @ 12:21 AM ET
The void ends; the Moon enters Pisces
Oct 23 @ 1:17 AM ET/Oct 22 @ 10:17 PM PT
Sensitive, imaginative, escapist, sacrificial lamb
If you awaken feeling fearful or tense, practice some calming yoga, meditation or EFT. It will be difficult to be creative, and positive if you start the day in a negative place. It’s time to be warm and embracing despite any feelings that you want to hide away. Saturday will be the more challenging day of the two. You may feel a little argumentative…willing to “fight” to get your way. Step back; don’t let frustrating circumstances rule your day. Remember, it’s just a cycle and will pass.

If you’ve overspent your budget, use Saturday’s void period to return items if that is what you need to do to feel better.

The void ends; the Moon enters Aries
Oct 25 @ 2:21 AM ET/Oct 24 @ 11:21 PM PT
The pace definitely picks up. You may feel motivated to start a project, finish an old project, or just go for a drive. Always remember that Aries is the planet of impulses. Some are good, others are not. Stop and think before you start anything. Then proceed. You have the energy. You just need to pair it with good judgement. Have a fun and/or productive day.

Moon Update
Oct 12-18

Moon in Libra

Because emotions are heightened during a New Moon, Monday’s challenges will be emphasized. Try to be as calm and even tempered as possible. There’s a tendency to be excitable and a little disruptive. Avoid power struggles without being dishonest. It’s a juggling act, and you’re juggling knives. Be careful.
Void Libra Moon @ 8:06pm ET/5:06pm PT
This is a long one. Almost 24 hours. Your feelings of discontent may last until the Moon enters Scorpio. This is a good time to practice calming meditations. If you can, take time to walk, jog or run to clear your thinking and separate you from any anxious feelings.

Tuesday & Wednesday
Moon enters Scorpio @ 5:38pm ET/2:38pm PT

Life is a little more upbeat IF you remembered to keep your cool yesterday. The energy is more positive for the next few days but Scorpio is good at hiding discontent until it explodes. Be willing to make changes and compromise. You can be full of great ideas but they mean nothing if you can’t implement them. Getting things done properly usually mean convincing others to buy into your point of view. You can cower them but you will not get the kind of results you get when you win them over.

Wednesday & Thursday
Void Scorpio Moon @ 8:57pm ET/5:57pm PT
The last influence the planets exert on this Moon will leave you with LOTS to do. In fact, you may not realize the depth of the commitment you made. Just take it in stride. The void lasts more than 24 hours. So, you have time. Try to finish what was put into motion Tuesday and Wednesday. If you go for new projects you may feel you’ve wasted 24 hours.

Friday & Saturday
Moon enters Sagittarius @ 5:18am ET/2:18am PT

The pace really picks up. However, it’s not exhilarating; it’s frantic and intense. You’ll be glad to see Friday come to an end. Saturday does not bring relief. It’s busy and a little trying. The key is to be active but not frenzied. Work off the energy build up.

Void Sagittarius Moon @ 4:48am ET/1:48am PT
This slows things down considerably. Pull back from focused tasks but allow yourself to do things that make you feel light and free. Enjoy the void period.

Moon enters Capricorn @ 2:52pm ET/11:52am PT
Sense the pull of duty and responsibility drawing you back to work, study and uniformity. There’s nothing inherently wrong with those emotions. That’s the job of Capricorn…to harness and refocus our energy.

Moon Enters Aries
Sep 27 2015 @ 3:28 PM ET/12:28 PM PT
Monday is a challenging day. First, you are in the ‘rush-rush’ sign, Aries. Second, anyone you push will push back. You may even find yourself in a verbal power play. The stakes are high so be careful what you say and to whom you express any discontent. Remember that your discontent is temporary unless you make it a permanent problem. Things will improve on Tuesday.
Moon Void in Aries
Sep 29 2015 @ 3:44 AM ET/12:44 AM PT
Despite the void, you should feel better Tuesday morning…more amenable…more relaxed.

Sep 29 2015 @ 2:56 PM ET/11:56 AM PT
Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday thrive under this softer influence, the days will be easier…less stressful. The pace is also slower. Remember that the rush of Aries is always tempered when the Moon moves to Taurus. You enjoy talking. Even with the Mercury retrograde (communication glitches), there is a meeting of minds. The atmosphere is optimistic and pleasant. Don’t get too carried away with spending your money. It’s easy to buy in haste, regret in leisure.
Void in Taurus
Oct 1 2015 @ 6:43 AM ET/3:43 AM PT
If you regret that bought an item, you may have success trying to return it during the void. Otherwise, just use this time to complete unfinished tasks. There’s something about Taurus energy that urges us to be responsible and focused.
Moon Leaves Taurus

Moon Enters Gemini
Oct 1 2015 @ 4:03 PM ET/1:03 PM PT
Thursday, Friday and Saturday will feel like seesaw days. As usual Gemini makes one spontaneous. So one moment you’re in tune, the next you feel like you’re talking to a wall…or maybe the wall is talking to you – in gibberish. Despite the crazy feeling, these are cheery days. A little bit of dreaming, a little bit of optimism, and a bit of merriment.
Moon Void in Gemini
Oct 3 2015 @ 1:18 PM ET/10:18 AM PT
During this void period, have a meal or a movie with a friend. Time will stretch to fit whatever you decide to do.

Moon Enters Cancer
Oct 3 2015 @ 8:21 PM ET/5:21 PM PT
Sunday is the real day in this period. You have some time Saturday evening, but all day Sunday the Moon resides in Cancer. Although there isn’t much negative energy, you may feel like Gemini’s crazy energy is still invading your world. Do what you can to go with the flow.
Moon Void in Cancer
Oct 4 2015 @ 5:41 PM ET/2:41 PM PT
Decompress if you can. Relax. the pace sharpens on Monday. You will need your stamina. Use this void to lay back and put up your feet. Monday is soon enough to go back to conquering the world.

Moon is Void in Sagittarius from Sep 21  @ 5 am ET/2 am PT to Sep 21  @ 8:33 am ET/5:33 am PT
Although there are some trying aspects to the during the period leading up to the void, it all ends in the wee hours of the morning. You might have a restless sleep but that is the most you can expect. For those who work the graveyard shift, it will be important to be patient and tolerant after midnight.

Moon Enters Capricorn on Sep 21  @ 8:33 am ET/5:33 am PT
Monday and Tuesday present their challenges and some rewards. Monday is easier. People are distracted and not as demanding. However, Tuesday will be just the opposite. Be extremely careful with how you express yourself. You are working with Mercury retrograde which may inhibit communication. Pair that with a few power plays and the day becomes frustrating. Try to end your day on a good note. If you’re caution, you can ‘fix’ things on Wednesday.
Moon is Void in Capricorn from Sep 23  @ 4:20 am ET/1:20 am PT to Sep 23  @ 1:51 pm ET/10:51 am PT
The first part of Wednesday is spent in void energy. Take this time to finish projects, learn a new skill. You have a few hours; use them wisely.

Moon Enters Aquarius on Sep 23  @ 1:51 pm ET/10:51 am PT
Despite the Moon’s erratic energy, this is an easier time. Other than being careful with your money, you shouldn’t run into any road blocks. Just be flexible with your reactions. Remember that others have the responsibility and may need your cooperation when you feel like being stubborn. Bring your smile and yield a little. It will go a long way toward making your life a lot easier in the long run.
Moon is Void in Aquarius from Sep 25  @ 12:01 am ET/Sep 24  9:01 pm PT to Sep 25  @ 3:43:31 pm ET/12:43 pm PT
This long void usually means you can finish up whatever you started but it’s not the best for starting new projects. If you don’t work weekends, use Friday to put things in place for Monday if a new project is on the horizon. Make sure you finish old projects. Clean up, clear up.

Moon Enters Pisces on Sep 25  @ 3:43:31 pm ET/12:43 pm PT
Friday evening, Saturday and part of Sunday are probably a lot more difficult than you would like. Arguments or spats, especially over domestic matters, can simply boil over. Perhaps too much is expected. You can be too optimistic and overcommit your resources. The emotional pot may boil over if you are not careful.
Moon Void in Pisces from Sep 26  @ 7:38 am ET/4:38 am PT to Sep 27  @ 3:28 pm ET/12:28 pm PT
From Saturday morning to Sunday afternoon, the lethargy of a void Moon will negatively affect you. Remember that it’s about how you feel whenever the Moon is in Pisces. Stop and consider…are you overreacting? Is there really a problem? If backing away means you leave unfinished tasks for later, then do so. Your energy and judgement will improve when the Moon changes signs.

Moon Enters Aries on Sep 27  @ 3:28 pm ET/12:28 pm PT
There are so many influences once Aries enters the picture. First, your energy level will increase. Don’t try to do everything, but choose what is important and you will have the energy to do whatever you want. The full Moon and Lunar eclipse occur tonight. It’s a time of clarity. If you are ready to forge ahead, you will see the truth of what is truly needed. You can see solutions. You can discriminate between creating your reality and indulging in pipe dreams.

This Week the Moon spends time in Libra, Scorpio and Sagittarius

Mercury Retrogrades on Thursday, September 17th at 2:09 PM ET/11:09 AM PT.

You may still be trying to sift out the Venus retrograde. So, if you are having difficulty with Mercury ruled transactions or activities over the past week or so, then you may find this period a challenge. If not, then use the next few weeks to handle activities that respond well to the retrograde…re-do, repair, review, re-apply, rebuild, reassemble, etc. I’m sure you “get” it by now. It’s do-over time. The Mercury retrograde ends October 9th.

The Moon is in Libra from Sep 13 @ 10:40PM ET/7:40PM PT to Sep 16 @ 11:42AM ET/8:42AM PT
Monday starts in a New Moon period. It’s a perfect time to set goals and start fresh. Remember that Libra is the sign of the diplomat. That does not mean anyone is wishy-washy. A good diplomat achieves goals without rubbing others the wrong way. Listen and really consider the others’ ideas. Look for a way to get what you want without stepping on toes. The only downfall during this period is the Libra weakness for trying to control everything. Try for flexibility.
The Moon is void in Libra Sep 16 @ 12:21 AM ET/Sep 15 @ 9:21 PM PT to Sep 16 @ 11:42a ET/8:42a PT
Make sure you set your alarm Tuesday night. It will be easy to oversleep. You probably have things to do Wednesday morning and being late is more disruptive than usual.

The Moon is in Scorpio from Sep 16 @ 11:42 AM ET/8:42 AM PT to Sep 18 @ 11:31 PM ET/8:31 PM PT
When the Moon changes signs you’ll add an element of pure emotion to your drive. Perhaps you’ll accomplish more. Just remember to keep a cool head. The Scorpio Moon pairs with the beginning of the Mercury retrograde. This can be very frustrating. Tempers flare. Why? Accommodation and patience is at an end. Please think twice before you speak. Gather your thoughts. Remember who is truly in charge…who holds the cards and what will really produce the results you need? Egos aren’t usually the problem; tempers are.
The Moon is void in Scorpio Sep 18 @ 3:48 PM ET/12:48 PM PT to Sep 18 @ 11:31 PM ET/8:31 PM PT
The energy you take into the void period will follow you until the Moon changes sign. Will you experience negative – arguments, or positive – productive action?

The Moon is in Sagittarius from Sep 18 @ 11:31 PM ET/8:31 PM PT to Sep 21 @ 8:32 AM ET/5:32 AM PT
Even though it’s Friday, you need to apply yourself to the tasks at hand. On Saturday it will be more challenging to handle anything concrete so what you do not do today, you may not do at all. Your brain feels clogged. If you can make Saturday a ‘do-nothing’ day, you will be less stressed. Get outside if the weather permits. Walk, run, bike, hike, play golf. Try for fresh air and as much sunshine as possible. Life finally eases up on Sunday. However, you may be tempted to overspend or behave recklessly. Enjoy life but be sensible.
The Moon is void in Sagittarius  Sep 21 @ 4:59 AM ET/1:59 AM PT to Sep 21 @ 8:32 AM  ET/5:32 AM PT
Pleasant Dreams.

For many Monday is the real end of summer. After Labor Day vacations come to a close and the stores will begin decorating for Christmas soon. Monday will put a lot of stresses into play. Power plays ramp up wherever you are. Remember, the moon is about how we handle feelings. So, you can easily allow little annoyances to blossom into arguments that you take to work on Tuesday. Try to stick with the intermittent times of optimism and bring that attitude when you return to work. Tuesday may be full of surprises. Not all that occurs will please you but it will be an interesting time. It is your attitude that will make or break this period.
Moon Void in Cancer – Sep 8 @ 9:29p ET/6:29p PT to Sep 8 @ 10:36p ET/7:36p PT
There is only about an hour of void time on Tuesday. You may not have enough minutes to complete a task or project. You might want to close your day and relax. Let go. There will be more than enough to do in the next few days.

Moon in Leo
Sep 8 @ 10:36p ET/7:36p PT to Sep 11 @ 9:56a ET/6:56a PT
As usual there is one sticky point when the moon occupies Leo…egos can rule the day. Wednesday and Thursday will be busy but not filled with drama unless you allow that to happen. You can handle any challenges you encounter. Be cooperative, not combative. Actually, you may not feel deeply committed to fighting for any particular situation, but your ego may goad you into thinking you should be more aggressive. Avoid spats, imposing your will or fighting authority. Just go with the flow. Do what is asked of you with a positive attitude.
Moon Void in Leo – Sep 11 @ 9:04a ET/6:04a PT to Sep 11 @ 9:56a ET/6:56a PT
Another short void period. So the morning starts off a little sluggishly. Use this void period to review your schedule. Make plans, but not too many plans. Remember you have a small window of opportunity to review what you have accomplished since the moon entered Leo, but not much time to do anything about it.

Moon in Virgo
Sep 11 @ 9:56a ET/6:56a PT to Sep 13 @ 10:41p ET/7:41p PT
Friday is an upbeat day. When Virgo rules the moon, you may take on more than you should. Virgo’s desire for perfection coupled with a general feeling of euphoria, could cause you to overdo. Keep your TO DO list tight. And do not write down all the details…just enough to keep you on track. The trick is to keep your head clear and focused on your tasks without being obsessed. There is a tendency to be so caught up that you are actually inattentive to your general surroundings. That can lead to miscalculations, errors and a general felling that you made a critical error. As soon as your mind says the word, CRITICAL, back away. The downside of the desire for perfection is you ruthlessly criticize whatever is not up to your standard, that includes self-criticism, thus obsession takes over.
Moon Void in Virgo – Sep 13 @ 10:08p ET/7:08p PT to Sep 13 @ 10:41p ET/7:41p PT
Another short void period during the end of Sunday evening. Take time for yourself. Decompress and prepare for your new week.

Venus Retrograde 07/19/2015

Venus Retrograde – July 25th to September 6th

A Venus retrograde period is a double edged sword. Venus is one of the truly benefic planets in ones horoscope. Yet, when a planet is retrograde, some of its energy is held back. So, how can that help you?

First, Venus retrogrades tend to affect our health benefits plans. So, if you have been struggling with payments from the insurance company, this is the time to revisit your calls. Remember, be pleasant as Venus functions best when we employ our better side. If you have problems with getting clear answers about coverage, calls made during this period will be more productive.

Second, Venus retrogrades also affect pricing. If you are not careful, you will overpay for an item. So, take time to make sure you have checked out the competition. If you are buying real estate, you can find a deal if you do not let your love of the property cloud your bid. If you are selling real estate, this is also a good time. Make things look pretty and you can dazzle the buyer into giving the price you desire, rather than insisting on a low price.

Finally, you may feel the urge to make purchases of items of beauty. Although you can end up with a pretty bauble at a good price, it usually ends up differently.  Knickknacks are truly impulse items and you have less need and less resistance. Do all you can to resist, or at least get a second opinion from someone who is not vested in the purchase before you plunk down your cash

Enjoy this cycle. It will be as pleasant as you allow it to be.

We’ve been experiencing a Venus Retrograde since December.

The Venus Retrograde ends
Jan 31st 3:48 pm ET/12:48 pm PT

When Venus retrogrades, you feel the affects in two important aspects of your life – love and money.
It’s not about the passion,  but the purity of your feelings.
It’s not about the money you squirrel away, but the money you spend or withhold in the name of “security.”
Take a look at those you love and how you treat them. Examine your budget and the activities that affect your feelings of financial security – savings, retirement plans, health and life insurance.
It’s not about being a miser or a spendthrift. It’s about what you think is necessary to make you feel happy inside. That is, what must you do about the people and external world around you to feel truly joyful and content.

When the retrograde ends, you may not be able to retrieve that insight for quite a while so use this period to examine these areas. Take all actions from a perspective of love and caring. These will not steer you wrong.

Hint: It’s not about quantity; it’s about quality.
