The Very Interesting Moon

I enjoy writing about the Moon. I am a Cancerian but much prefer being known as a Moonchild. The Moon is the ruler of the sign Cancer. The most viewed Blog post that I have written in the last six years was entitled “The Cancerian Moonchild”. The Statistics show it has had 1323 views, way more than anything else I have written about!

We know that the moon is now a dead body and nothing shows any life there, but was it always this way? All planets and luminaries have bodies and go through a process of birth, growth and death. The solar system is known as a body and is within a constellation.* The moon is another body within the solar system. The whole universe is one living organism with its basis being energy and motion. Planet earth is a body and within it are human bodies, mere cells in contrast to the greater whole. Just as blood and energy circulate through our bodies, so energy circulates through the universe, helping it to perform its function. Since planets have energy and motion, they can transmit this to other planets and influence them. This is how the moon influences the earth and its cells; the human beings who inhabit the earth. We pick up some of its cosmic energy, just as cosmic rays can affect life on earth.

*A constellation is a cluster of stars . The stars that appear on the ecliptical** belt have the same names, but not the same location as the twelve zodiac signs.

** The Ecliptical belt is the apparent path of the sun in the heavens. The plane of the earth’s orbit extended to meet the celestial sphere.

If the moon were to be suddenly struck out of existence, the tides would stop their rise and fall and the bodily fluids of humans would change drastically. The ebb and flow of life energy is linked to the waxing and waning of the moon. The study of human horoscopes through the years has shown that people born at the time from new to full moon have greater strength. Their blood, breath and muscles are stronger than those born when the moon is waning. Light is another source of energy and people born during the waxing moon live longer than those born during the decreasing light of the moon. It’s been shown that there is a definite link between the length of the moon cycle and the life span.

The moon is no longer just a remote romantic body in the heavens that lovers swear their love by, because we know it is there; it has been reached by humans.

Astrologers study the celestial bodies from the earth which is Geocentric. Astronomers study the solar system from a heliocentric-sun-centered point of view.

How to Get What You Want Using Astrology

night sky over city road

Do you want to know which days each month are the best ones to get your way, or at ones that could be lucky for you?    Most things will work out to your advantage if you act on these particular days.

If you know your Sun Sign, look at an Ephemeris, which you can also find on-line.  Look in any given month, for what sign the Moon is in and on which days.

Note that the exact time the Moon changed signs is different depending on where you liv).  The moon changes signs on the same day for all, but the exact time changes depending on your time zone.  They always use Greenwich Mean Time, so for example, if you happen to live on the east coast of the United States, you would subtract 5 hours from the listed time.

The moon spends about 2-1/2 days in each Zodiac sign.  for example, if your Sun sign is Aries, look to see when the moon will be in Aries.  Those will be your best days of the month.   You will want to try and plan special activities on these days if possible. 

Schedule things such as:

  • Signing contracts
  • Starting important projects
  • Finishing up deals
  • Going on job interviews or asking for a raise
  • Moving your residence
  • Applying for loans or credit cards
  • Approaching important people or beginning important conversations
  • Purchasing clothes for special occasions
  • Discussing problems with businesses that service you
  • Getting married

If you are unable to schedule these special days, at least do not pick one of the days when your Sun sign is in the Moon sign opposite.  These are the days that others are more likely to get their way and you will not.  On your low days, just lie low.  Go with the flow and rest more.  One thing that it is nice to do on one of your low days of the month, is to help others by being kind and spiritual.

Things not to schedule:

  • A house or business closing
  • Signing contracts or anything
  • Negotiating deals
  • Starting a new job
  • Making decisions
  • Starting a vacation
  • Visiting a new restaurant or hair salon

You can certainly be happy on these days, just avoid important moments if you can, because things just possibly won’t go your way.   Try it for a few months and see how it works out for you.

My information has been taken from the book “Moon Signs”  by Sybil Leek,  who tells us that the moon is the most important barometer of our emotions.   She asserts that celestial equal rights for the moon are long overdue!

     

New Planetary Energy

all signs coexistJune opens with many changes in the planetary energies!

Mercury moved into Gemini where it is  very much at home.  Mercury rules communications and Gemini is the sign of the communicator!   Lets all talk!!

Venus moved into Taurus where it is also feeling quite homey.  Venus is the planet ruling Taurus.  Venus is love and money and Taurus loves  handling money!

Mars just moved into Cancer and will energize Cancerians and get them busy with their projects.  Cancer softens Mars competitive and often combative nature.

Jupiter went Direct today after being retrograde for 4 months.  He is in Libra at 13 degrees as he goes Direct.  Get ready Librans for some positive forward movement finally.  Everyone else look and see where 13 degrees Libra falls in your birth chart,  That’s where you should see things start to pick up for you in beneficial ways.

We also have a Full Moon at 18 degrees Sagittarius tomorrow June 9th and it pushes us to seek adventure and broaden our learning through our emotions.  This will mostly affect you if you have any planets in Sagittarius, Gemini, Virgo or Pisces (all the mutable signs) between 15 and 23 degrees.

Lots is shifting in the heavens for us to experience in our lives.

If you want to know specifically how all these changes will affect you and want your chart done, please check my Pricing Schedule found on the menu bar above.

Surgery and the Planets

Many people who have an interest in Astrology have heard that there are periods when it is unwise to have surgery.  There are times when your odds for successful surgery are better.  I want to share these guidelines because I think it is important to know.  This refers to ELECTIVE SURGERY ONLY!

  • Try to plan surgery five days before or after the New Moon.  This is when the bodily fluids are at their lowest flow so there is less chance of swelling.
  • Avoid surgery five days before or after the Full Moon.  Bodily fluids are at their highest flow and there can be excessive bleeding, seeping from wounds or swelling.
  • Avoid surgery when it’s a ‘Void of course” Moon because surgery may not be performed correctly, or complications are possible.
  • Avoid surgery on the part of the body ruled by the sign that the Moon or Sun is transitting or moving through.  A list of the signs and parts of the body follows.
  • Avoid surgery when Mercury or Mars are retrograde as there could be misunderstandings, errors or confusion.  Mars rules surgeons and cutting instruments and the surgeon may be unsteady or unable to concentrate very well. Also there could be heavy loss of blood.

There are a few other things to do with the Moon that can be checked for you by an Astrologer, but these are the most important!

Aries:  Head, eyes, ears, face, sinuses, brain

A FULL MOON CHRISTMAS

old fash santa animated

On Christmas, December 25th this year, we will have a Full Moon in the sign of chatty, communicative Gemini.  The last time we had a full moon on Christmas was in 1977! 

So, with families joining together to celebrate the holiday, be aware that full moons bring out the crazies!  Be patient and tolerant and drive carefully.  Lunatic is a word derived from Luna, the name of the moon and when the moon is full, it’s in full energy phase.   It has a strong effect on the tides and even on the fluids in our body; and this time will also be affecting what people say.  You might have to bite your tongue more than once!  Please be aware of the energies out there and make this a happy, serene holiday for yourself and others.  trees and hearts

WISHING ALL MY READERS A MERRY CHRISTMAS, HAPPY HOLIDAYS AND A HAPPY, PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR 2016!!

When to have Surgery

surgery sign

This applies to ELECTIVE SURGERY ONLY!.  Sometimes we don’t have a choice and we must have surgery right away. but if you have the option to select the day,why not pick the most advantageous day.  The Astrological medical rules go all the way back to  Ptolemy and are also from reports published in medical literature by some doctors who do not happen to be Astrologers.

The most important thing to know is what sign the moon is in, as well as its position when it transits a person’s natal chart.  If possible do not schedule surgery on the day before, the day of, or the day after a full moon.  There is increased danger of hemorrhaging at this time of the month.

Also,don’t have surgery when the moon is moving through a sign ruling a vital organ; for example, when the  moon is in Leo which rules the heart  or when the moon is in the sign ruling the part of the body requiring surgery. For example, when it’s a Taurus moon avoid having a tonsillectomy,  Taurus rules the throat and the neck.

mars moon eaeth

The vitality of the body is decreased when the moon is near the person’s Ascendant and also when transiting Mars is opposing the person’s own moon sign.  Avoid it when Mars is close to 17 degrees of the person’s sun sign.  These placements can also prolong recuperation.

The above are the most important.  But if you want to look further to assure yourself that you did not leave anything to chance, you can also check the Sun’s position.  Just as with the the transiting moon, the sun should not be in the sign ruling the part of the body requiring surgery.  Ptolemy says that surgery on the chest  for example should not be done when the sun or moon are in Gemini nor breast surgery with the sun or moon in the sign of Cancer, which also rules the stomach.   Since the Sun gives us vitality, surgery at those times would drain our vitality.

When Mars is retrograde which is not too often, avoid that time because the surgery could need to be repeated later or further surgery needed to correct a problem resulting from the first surgery.

There are other placements that could be checked, but for most of us, having our natal chart and an Ephemeris to check the daily planet movements, this is probably enough to know.  If anyone is interested in knowing other things to check, please leave me a comment and I can write another Blog on this subject.
