Star Date : 6/17/10 Moon in Virgo, Mars in Virgo

Welcome! Today, June 17th 2010 the Moon moved into the sign of Virgo at 1:41am est. Mars is also in the sign of Virgo (as of 2:11 am est on 6/7/10), So the emotional side that is ruled by the Moon, is teaming up with a Mars driven sense of adventure, aggression, and sex. For alot of us, love affairs could be in the picture now, particularly for Earth and Water signs, who may really be feeling the vibe!

Adventures of all kinds may seem like a distinct possibility for all the signs but Virgo Suns will really have a leg up on it (they are practically 'humming' with energy in this moon period). They will have resolve as well as the will power to start and DO just about anything their little hearts desire right now. Be prepared people! With Virgo suns that could mean just about anything. The gamut could run from them dropping a bad job and jumping on a new employment situation to gutting the bedroom and redesigning it from the floorboards up. They have the guts, ambition and energy to fix the things that 'bug' then and they just might do it now!

For the rest of us, it's pretty much...Pick, pick, pick..Yes indeed, we get a little bit more discerning when the Moon is in Virgo. We know what we want, plain and simple and if it's not 'just so' we WILL complain. We want the people we deal with to have fresh breath, clean hair and decent, co-ordinating, well fitting clothes. We all just figure that's the very LEAST we can could do, so we expect it from others too. Gone now is the regal 'forgiving', non-petty attitude of the Leo Moon. Yup, lonnng gone! Now it's ALL about the details toughen up and deal with it.

Food right now will be more along the lines of what we NEED as opposed to what we want. Is it healthy? Is it wholesome? Is it sensible?...If yes, then fill our plates please!
Health food is 'big' under this moon. Whole grains, salads, and lean cuts of meat will be to our liking right now...Don't be surprised if you turn down dessert either, Virgo moons usually take the craving for sweets down a notch too. We will want our kitchens and dining rooms to be clean and uncluttered. DO be sure to look over all those bit of mail you've been stacking up on those tables, BEFORE you toss them all in the trash bin! Many an overdue notice surprisingly comes a shortly after we spontaneously TOSS (yes, the original, unopened bill) of the cluttering 'stuff' out under a Virgo moon spell.

Things we'll likely be doing now, cleaning, organizing, nit-picking and complaining, streamlining and "fixing" whats wrong with other people. We wont be so 'self' focused as we were in the Leo moon period and instead will be turning our attention to those around us and our surroundings. We tend to make a 'god' of simple necessity right now too. Efficient, unromantic, quick, clean and no-frills stuff will win out in our eyes every time when a Virgo Moon is involved.

Pisces (the astrological opposite of Virgo), Sun and Moon sign people just might not be digging the vibe so much right now. Life that's without at least a touch of romance, elegance and fantasy just isn't comfortable for them. They might want to grab a bottle or two of their favorite vintage and hide out for the duration under the covers of their cozy beds or between the covers of their favorite romance, thriller or poetry book at least until 4:13 am est on Saturday, June 19th, when the moon moves into the sign of airy and slightly more romantic Libra.

Star Date : 6/14/10 Moon in Leo, Venus in Leo

Welcome! Today June 14th the Moon moon moves into the sign of Leo at 11:54 pm est. The planet Venus also moved into Leo earlier at 4:50 am est, so this is a wonderful period to enjoy. Both of these celestial bodies will be making positive aspects to Jupiter and Uranus who are both currently in the very earliest degrees of Aries....So Fire sign suns/moon people will be getting a little extra boost of energy and sex appeal from these four.

What can we expect from this Leo Moon period? Well, if you look carefully you'll see folks will start to walk a little taller, sit a bit straighter too. Yes, because Leo rules the back and the Moon and Venus here will act as a motherly reminder for us all to sit up straight. (nudge, nudge). If you ignore Leo's prompting and don't, you may find yourself a little bit achy as a result. If you look at someone you know is a Leo.... You'll know exactly what I mean, most of them walk proudly and stand with a rather royal and commanding posture... (Not the kind of stance that Virgo risings ramrod straight you wonder where exactly that stick is)....but with a natural Leo elegance and strength. We'll all get just a touch of that for a couple days (lucky us)!

We may also see ourselves springing for a new hairdo, a bit of something gold and glittery, or maybe a posh bit of 'something' to add to our wardrobes. Leo spares no expense at being show-stoppingly attractive, they work very hard at making it all seem "natural" and we'll all get just a smidge of that sort of attitude ourselves with both these planets in the sign of the lion. We may see a drop or two of indulgent flair as 'essential' for just a bit. Tooth whitening, contact lenses, tanning, hair highlighting, manicures and pedicures....Yes, all the little touches may suddenly seem very important to us now.

Attitudes will tend to be generous. Miserly and petty behaviour will be frowned upon. Children, entertaining and playing will get special attention right now too. A good laugh here and there should be had in the next few days too. (Leo loves to tell a joke). Even the shy, 'shrinking violet' types wont mind folks looking at them so much during this period. Entertaining is especially highlighted now, you may want to throw an impromptu party during this moon spell. We'll play games just for the sake of playing not winning right now. You may find you crave a good session of sunbathing right now too. Self improvement schemes get off to a great start as well right now, deciding HOW to loose that spare tire will seem easier much for alot of us.

Food will be something "worth" having now. Hard to believe but even our snacks will have to have that "something special" or we just wont be interested. Many a confirmed vegetarian may get an unshakable craving for a good steak during this moon phase. How the meal 'looks' on the plate will be almost as important to us as the taste. Finishing touches like garnishes are used more when the moon rolls through Leo. Also the "better" cuts of meat are preferred. We wont be fans of boiled stuff right now and prefer roasting or fire grilling what we eat instead. Elegant desserts are wanted now as well as the finer bottle of wine or imported beer as opposed to the 'standard fare' we normally have. Restaurants with table linens and making reservations to'em are high on our priority lists right now as we would rather have others 'do' (in a grand style too) for us...But hey, we're worth it right?

Aquarius Suns/Moons might not find these few days as enjoyable as the rest of us, (after all, they are the zodiacs 'opposite' of Leo). They don't care for all that self-important pomp and circumstance. And all the strutting, fluffing and preening just gets on their nerves.... I think you guys might want to escape it all by going rock climbing, hang gliding or maybe windsurfing. A visit to that Sci-Fi convention in town wouldn't be a bad idea, or maybe just 'hole-up' in your laboratory and do some more work on your Martian Alien Language translator project for a little bit.... Just until 1:41 am est Thursday, when the moon moves into Virgo.

Star Date 6/12/10 Moon in Cancer, Venus in Cancer

Welcome! Today is Saturday, June 12th of 2010. The Moon sidesteps from the air sign Gemini into the water sign of Cancer at approximately 9:50 pm est. The normal 'goings on' for a Cancer moon phase will be even more intensified because Venus is also currently in Cancer as well. At approximately 27, 28 and 29 degrees during this moon period, (Yes, our Lady Venus is clipping right along now, at a very good speed too). Juno (an Asteroid) is also currently in Cancer as well, but how this enhances moon transits is still yet to be determined. (In my opinion, we have yet to compile a decent database on the effects of Juno. So, although I have my suspicions, I hesitate to pass along information that may not be effective).

We will be looking at a two day period where people will be rather self-protective, possessive, emotional and moody. They will be looking for VERIFICATION of all kinds of things...(As Venus is also involved, a lot of it it will have to do with love and appearance)....Verification, proof and firm confirmation may be required that you love them and only them. That they did a good job, at least as good if not better than the LAST guy did. That you'll always come home to them because know you belong to them. And yes, even validation that their butt doesn't look too fat in those jeans....(and that you still think their pot belly and/or love handles are still cute and cuddly). They may even TEST you to see if its REALLY the way you say it is. Just for the sake of their security dont'cha know!

The name 'Crabby' could be applied to SOME people during this period. Yes, there are some folks, (Air & fire signs without water in their charts), that will have a tough time dealing with the heavy emotional tone of this moon period. But happily, MOST people have a sprinkling of enough water through their charts to ride it out without too much discomfort.

Cancer of course will be in their glory. After all, this Moon has come 'home' in the sign of Cancer, it rules there man, it rules!
We all know what it's like to unlock the front door and step in after a long business trip, we kick off our shoes, Yell "Lucy, I'm home!" Tug off those earrings and let our hair down. We'll be feeling it ourselves and seeing that same sort of sensitive soul scenario play out in others as we all let down our emotional hair and kick off the tight shoes of conventionally acceptable behaviour. That, in a nutshell just means we ALL will be MORE apt to ask the burning 'sensitive' questions NOW, that we were afraid to ask before.

There is also apt to be a bit more of a 'homebody' in all of us now. We'll want to stick close to home. (compared to all the running around we did while the moon was in Gemini). We want to 'touch base' with our families, pets all the things we 'care for' even the possessions we have collected during this two days. Cooking for the loved ones will be one of the ways we show how much we care and that is highlighted too now....Many people crave the smell of fresh baked bread, brownies, and cookies under this moon, you may find yourself doing it too. (Anyone else up for a bakery 'drive-by')? Heh heh....We'll crave comfort foods like stews, rich puddings, ice cream, mashed potato, in fact, almost any rich buttery stuff. Also a good wine shared with family and friends at the table will add to our bliss now. We'll talk and carry on about the good old days and our views on our family and country now while at that table and maybe even dare others to challenge our opinions about those specific things right now too.
Things like scrap booking and family tree investigation seem like fun to us now, and if not outright fun, maybe more like tasks we feel we SHOULD get to. Yeah, its sort of like a good kind of guilt, if there is such a thing...

Oh, and like all the Cardinal signs, Cancer IS known to "stir the pot" if things get a little TOO boring or questions don't get answered to their satisfaction. So, just make sure the fire extinguisher is in operating condition. The plumber is still on good terms with you and be prepared for anything, because they WILL get a rise out of you somehow if they aren't satisfied.

Capricorn Sun/Moon sign people might not be the happiest of clams on the beach right now. I suggest that they 'hole-up' in their spiffy, spartan and sleek home offices and take care of all the personal paperwork and bill paying. As keeping up with their own to-do's right now, will help keep them out of the 'ickie stickie' emotional currents that threaten to carry their wry, dry, logical, common sense, lil'ol goatie-selves over the waterfall of mass insecurity and sensitivity. Don't worry Cap, you can safely come back out after 11:54 pm est Monday night....When the moon moves to Leo.

Thanks for looking in...

Star Date: 6/10/10 Moon & Mercury in Gemini

Today 6/10/10, The moon has moved (at 6:11 pm est) into the sign of Gemini. We're bound to see allot more chatter going on between people, computers and cell phones as Gemini is all about communication. We may also see some amazing examples of multi-tasking during this moon period as Gemini is capable of doing MORE than just one boring thing at a time...Nooo, he can do 3 or 4 all at once...But if it's NOT boring, they will concentrate on a single task. (and yes we do take on some of the qualities of Gemini when the moon rolls through their sign). We get more frantic, a bit more chatty and easily distracted. Reading matter will suddenly matter to us, you may be taken with a craving to read the latest gossip or devour a whole book at a single sitting.
There is a light handed, light hearted, humorous, non-personal feeling to most of what goes on while the moon slides through the sign Gemini. We WILL want to know, we just wont want to delve too deeply into the emotional or no over sharing the 'ickie stuff' now, PAHLEEZE! Eating will seem more like snacking or grazing, with less interest in a 'big, sit down' meal during this period because we're sooo darn busy! We'll want lighter foods too, like salads, fruit and finger foods. Pizza and quick sandwiches will be on the menu often when the moon cruises through this airy sign.

Mercury moved into Gemini (at 1:41 am est) today too...did you hear the "ahhhh"? It's come 'home' to the sign it rules! And will act as an intensifier for that big old moon in Gemini too.
Doubling up the potential for frantic movement, changeability and chances for communication using any methods available. It may seem frenetic right now but when the moon slips into the sign of emotional Cancer this Mercury position will seem like a blessing by keeping the way people think a bit lighter and less moody. This Mercury likes to take a bit of information, translate it and then spread it around to where it can do some good...(it also might like to gossip too, so DO be sure your not doing anything you wouldn't be proud to have other folks talking about)!

With both celestial bodies in Gemini, sun sign Gemini people will be in their cups and glory, enjoying a very good period for them overall until the moon move to Cancer (6/12/10 @9:50 pm est). Sagittarius may NOT be enjoying this period quite so much as all the meaningless chatter just gets on their nerves and people jumping around from thing to thing is distracting. It could be a very good time for Sag to get away from it all (back out into the countryside or shore) maybe just get that fishing pole out and take a break.

Thanks for stopping by.
