July 2015

In JULY… the energy worldwide = RESPONSIBILITIES to MEET, both domestically and in business, and obligations to pay. There is a focus on work and health, taking care of business in both areas. The words "pay up", "duties to accept" , "handle responsibilities", "nutrition", "family" vibrate at the top of the energy list in July. There are planetary changes that will have influence also: Venus (rules love/money) and Uranus (rules unexpected/unusual) will both retrograde in July. Be very alert working with world markets. Love relationships may cool down and allowing time for adjustments and compromises. Jupiter will be nearing the end of its travel through Leo, preparing for entry into Virgo. When it does, Virgo suns will be blessed with this "guardian planet" for a year. Keep it mind it also brings the law, higher education, foreign places/people and religion into play. The few days surrounding July 26th could bring upheavals, sudden happenings, craziness due to Uranus and Mars squaring off with each other. Keep tempers under control and be very alert to accidents. We have 3 moons this month. Two Full moon energies start and end the month while a new moon energy mid-month will be emotional and filled with need for action that will unfold the latter part of July and into August.

July 1st: Full Moon in Capricorn at 9 degrees (business, banking, government rulings, judges and places i.e. Afghanistan, Mexico, and graveyards)

July 15th: New Moon in Cancer 23 degrees (emotions are intensified bringing changeable/confusing emotionally charged energy for protecting the home, family, country)

July 31st: Full Moon in Aquarius at 7 degrees (anything and everything having to do with electricity, airlines, broadcasting, earthquakes, U.S. Congress, and countries i.e. Iran, Russia, Syria, will be highlighted) Be sure to read about VOID MOONs and always expect the unexpected (and/or delays/cancellations) when the moon is void!

Daily

July 01: FULL MOON in CAPRICORN at 9 degrees 55 mins tonight at 10:20pmET. Everything now is about responsibilities. Although this is a full moon and emotions are usually quite high, the particular moon is reservered and controlled. Take care of business today. This is a good day to deal with people or things where emotional control is needed. CANCER sun signs may have difficulties during the day. Go slow and steady.

July 02: The moon continues in CAPRICORN and the energy flows rather smoothly. Focus on getting that to-do list checked off. Be careful in personal relationships as sometimes we become too detached and aloof under this moon energy. ARIES and LIBRA sun signs are pushed to make progress.

July 03: The moon enters VOID at6:38amET quickly moving into AQUARIUS at 8:21amET. The energy is friendly today with good communications. A great day for lunch with friends. Aquarius is the sign of the water bearer, the visionary. When the moon is here, it highlights those energies. Pay attention to your dreams but keep in check those grandiose thoughts!

July 04: U.S. INDEPENDENCE DAY! The moon is still in Aquarius and the day should run smoothly although there is bumpy energy in early to late evening. However, there is a need for caution. Be very careful when using grills, fireworks (if legal in your area) and doing any kind of aggressive exercise, i.e. weight lifting, auto racing, xtreme sports, etc. The energy is just too unpredictable. Keep everything in moderation.

July 05: The moon quickly moves out of AQUARIUS at 8:31amET and is VOID until 10:23amET when it quietly moves into PISCES. The bumpy energy from yesterday calms down by lunchtime. The rest of the day is one of "whew".. so rest if you can. VIRGO sun signs may feel jumpy today and tomorrow so limit your conversations.

July 06: The moon in shy PISCES all day is an excellent day for recouping from the holiday craziness. The energy is easy enough during the day but the late evening has angry energy. As that energy beings applying during the day, it would be best to avoid any conversations with authority figures, if possible. You certainly want to obey all the rules today no matter your employment status or occupation.

July 07: The moon moves out of PISCES and into VOID at 10:36amET for a short time. It enters ARIES at 12:37pmET. The air is filled with static. Eveything seems electrified. Be very cautious with anything connected to weapons, fires, sharp instruments, assertive moves or words. Activities that could cause injury to the head are likely to increase. Patience is required today no matter how uncomfortable. Military aggression or strategy is heightened. LIBRA sun signs are taken back by the impulsive energy of this moon. It would be wise for you to simply be quiet.

July 08: UGH<<<The moon is still in the impatient and forward moving sign of ARIES. MERCURY changes from GEMINI to CANCER. The thoughts and focus will be more on family/home/real estate but in a business/providing sort of way. With the moon in Aries, there is uncomfortable energy in the air and will at times make you feel angry or, at the least anxious. Take deep breaths and ride the energy for more day.

July 09: Happy Birthday to a very SPECIAL person! The moon moves quickly out of ARIES at 9:47amET and remains VOID until after at 3:49pmET. At that time it moves into sensual and persistent TAURUS. Midday could bring unexpected changes or delays and even unexpected events. Once the moon moves into TAURUS, the energy will become more stable. Eating, drinking and being merry can be excessive under this moon energy. Even making major purchases could cost more if made now. Be aware of your limitations so you can manage the consequences.

July 10: The moon is still in TAURUS and will bring a more practical energy into play. Bargain hunting should uncover great finds today. This is a very artsy day – artists of all kinds should enjoy the creative wave. Intuition is heightened. Pay close attention to "those feelings". SCORPIO might just enjoy the day and the deep intuitive energy. Bank accounts and credit cards should be checked for accuracy. If you want your hair to grow thick and full, have a hair cut today.

July 11: The moon continues in TAURUS increasing stubborness today. This is a go with the flow type of day, otherwise you meet with intense resistance. Personal relationships will be tested today. Being flexible, understanding and patient will bring this day to a positive close. Real estate transactions are highlighted. The moon shifts from TAURUS to VOID at 5:52pmET and at 8:16pmET it enters the youthful sign of GEMINI.

July 12: With the moon in GEMINI, all types of communication increase. The morning is great for catching up on emails, messages, etc. Midday will have tension building due to emotional sensitivities. By late evening, there is cranky energy, so early to bed would be a wise choice! SAGITTARIUS sun signs and ascendant benefit from being alone today, especially the afternoon.

July 13: The moon in GEMINI is great for having lunch with friends or catching up by phone. The energy is smoother today and increases conversations related to home and financial security. Contracts signed today should produce better than expected results. Energy is building behind the scenes for an accident? or event? regarding people or companies in powerful positions. This energy will be around for several days and is strong for pushing a warlike atmosphere. This will be enhanced by the new moon on the 15th. The moon shifts to VOID at 11:31pmET until early morning tomorrow. Indecision or fickleness seems to be prominent.

July 14: The moon moved into CANCER in the early morning hours – 2:14amET – bringing tense energy surrounding the stock markets, banking, and mergers. There is a sense of urgency in the air due to the approach of the new moon. This is a great day for visiting family and friends, having a great dinner at home with family or close friends. Giving of yourself today to someone less fortunate will bring inner peace. CAPRICORN sun signs feel pressured and would benefit from sticking to a routine.

July 15: UGH>>YUCK<< NEW MOON at 9:24pmET in CANCER at 23 degrees. This is a very complex day emotionally and otherwise. There is tumultuous energy early morning, mid-morning, mid-afternoon and early evening. Ugh. If you are out and about today, avoid confrontations of any kind. Avoid crowds. Travel could be challenging. The energy mentioned on the 13th feels like it is reaching a critical point. Be kind and considerate.. walk softly.. be aware of your surroundings. ARIES sun signs feel irritated and really need to run, workout or dance.. anything physical to burn off the energy.

July 16: The moon is VOID at 7:24amET until it enters LEO at 10:15amET. Whew.. what a week so far. Today, hopefully, the energy will settle and open the door for an easy day. Be careful with your heart today – physically and romantically! Give without hurting yourself. Keep things in moderation today. AQUARIUS sun signs may actually enjoy today.

July 17: The moon in LEO again today and no harsh aspects. There was enough energy earlier in the week so a slower day is welcomed. This evening is a good night for romance, concerts, movies, sports – and entertainment. Family gatherings should be very positive. Make sure you can walk your talk today!

July 18: The moon is again in LEO with several changes. Late today at 6:38pmET, VENUS shifts from LEO into VIRGO, the detailed focused, service oriented sign. The morning is mostly quiet but energy builds by mid-day filling the afternoon with some grumpy energy that doesn't settle until late night. Make a list of things to do that need preciseness. Be ready to check things off by tomorrow evening. PISCES sun signs can take the day off – visit a waterfront somewhere or take a walk in nature's flower garden.

July 19: The moon is in VIRGO all day. Mid-afternoon you may find you want to run away from the maddening crowds.. be careful as there is deceptive energy today. Emotions are tense in personal relationships. Quietness wins. PISCES sun signs feel out of place and drained.

July 20: The day enjoys the VIRGO moon reflection again. It is a great day for handling detailed tasks. It is also a good day to organize or analyze. Be careful as you could come across too critical in conversation. Precision is good, pickiness gets you nowhere today.

July 21: The moon shifts early at 6:06amET to VOID until it dances into LIBRA at 9:23amET. This shift of energy could create a little bit of crankiness so exercise patience in the AM. This is a mentally active day and can be exhausting. There is a strong desire to negotiate, to find middle ground, to keep the peace.

July 22: Moon in LIBRA continues and brings rumbling energy today. The morning is easier than the afternoon as the SUN ENTERS LEO tonight at 11:31pmET. It is the middle of the week, but a wonderful evening for a concert, dance or maybe visiting an art museum. Romance is on tap! Even ARIES sun signs will enjoy today.

July 23: UGH in AM. VENUS moves into LEO, and MERCURY slides into LEO. The day starts with the moon still in LIBRA until 2:12pmET when it enters VOID. It will quietly move into SCORPIO at 10:07pmET. The energies work well together so that is a plus. Usually, however, when there are planets changing signs and many times when the moon is VOID, the energy waves are uneven creating a feeling of apprehension or confusion. So, be careful when making promises today. You will be asked to walk your talk! Keep it real and you will have no worries.

July 24: WOW – YUCK The moon in secretive and intense SCORPIO helps everyone pull back and breathe a little. Feelings of love and passion may fire up in the evening. Enjoy it but be very careful….as VENUS is stationing to go retrograde tomorrow. The fire you feel tonight may only be smoldering embers after tomorrow. TAURUS feels "off" today and even more so after tomorrow. TAURUS is ruled by VENUS and just as MERCURY retrograde effects GEMINI and VIRGO, VENUS retrograde will effect TAURUS and LIBRA. Venus retrograde is easier to manage.

July 25: UGH<< The moon continues in the intuitive sign of SCORPIO. VENUS retrogrades in VIRGO at 5:29amET ..followed by a very rough energy. Expect sudden happenings/events/headliners and especially the unexpected. The energy is extremely high and erratic – attributed to URANUS as it prepares to retrograde tomorrow in ARIES. I never predict the happenings around URANUS, only to expect the unexpected. However, with the moon in SCORPIO, Venus retrograde and Mercury in Leo… I would say whatever happens will be big news.

July 26: The moon starts the day in SCORPIO but quickly enters VOID at 5:14amET for a brief time. At 8:24amET it enters the adventurous sign of SAGITTARIUS. Today (and a few days before and after today) may be ROUGH and bumpy as URANUS, ruler of the unexpected, stations retrograde at 6:38amET in the aggressive and unpredictable sign of Aries. This stationing will occur during the VOID time period adding the element of surprise and unpredictability to the energy. Go slow, be watchful of precarious situations and avoid confrontations. After mid morning the energy should level out giving us a nice afternoon.

July 27: The moon is in SAGITTARIUS and URANUS stations retrograde in ARIES at 21 degrees. The Sagittarius moon brings law enforcement, military, foreign countries, universities, religion, and legalities into play. With a full moon on the 31st in AQUARIUS, there is certain to be a humanity concern with all activities this week. URANUS rules AQUARIUS and the odd, unusual, and unexpected happenings. If you are travelling today obey all laws and be alert to sudden changes in plans, especially in air travel.

July 28: The Moon is still in SAGITTARIUS but quickly enters VOID at 9:37amET. During midday with the moon VOID, expect the unexpected. Appointments may be delayed or cancelled. At 2:47pmET the moon will move into cool CAPRICORN. Hopefully you will not have any court appearances in the afternoon as CAPRICORN energy is stern and can sometimes be too stern and seemingly unsympathetic. CANCER sun signs feel challenged, so take deep breaths often.

July 29: The moon in CAPRICORN means it is an excellent time to review budgets, bank accounts, and credit card balances in order to achieve a better financial position. Skin problems can pop up from out of the blue. Be careful in conversations about money that you do not seem overly frugal or greedy. Negotiating for a raise could be challenging today. Wait a day or two. Stock markets will rumble for a few days and may show signs of an upward swing. Be very careful as Venus will be shifting into LEO on the 31st and sometimes.. this energy can cause over confidence or an exaggerated actions.

July 30: The moon will continue in CAPRICORN but will feel very emotional which is not like CAPRICORN energy at all. This is due increasing energy ahead of the full moon happening tomorrow early morning AND.. a changing Venus. Finish up budgets and taking care of your responsibilities. At 2:50pmET the moon will be VOID until 5:40pmET when it gladly moves into AQUARIUS. CANCER sun signs need a caring hand while ARIES AND LIBRA definitely need a coffee/smoothie break!

July 31: At 6:43amET there is a FULL MOON in AQUARIUS at 7 degrees and VENUS moves into the sign of LEO. The energy has cycled from the New Moon on July 15th in Cancer. Concern for our fellow human beings was heightened then. During the past 2 weeks, information/events may have brought about changes in how we treat or should treat each other. These changes may have created a rippling effect and will have 2 more weeks – until Aug 14th to give insights as to where we are going over the next year in regards to our fellowman.

Moons

New moons initiate energy that is very strong for four weeks or one lunar cycle but influences the year until another new moon occurs in that same sign – usually a year later. What that energy involves is indicated by the sign in which the new moon occurs and personally, which house/aspects etc are activated in your astrological chart.

Full moons that follow two weeks after a new moon bring the energy of the new moon out into the open, or to a peak. It continues to unfold energy for two more weeks until the next new moon when the cycle begins all over again highlighting adifferent area of our lives. Those emotional influences can last a year.

Void moons occur when the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet. It is considered to be VOID during this timeframe. During these void periods -- which can last a few minutes or a few days -- it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people. Individually, if you are under excellent aspects from transiting planets, this will then be a good time to proceed even though the moon is void.

I find that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is an element of LUCK associated with VOID energy. Use it wisely. One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays or cancellations.

Retrograde Planets

When a planet is retrograde, its energy is weakened, misunderstood or projected in an unclear manner. The sun signs, industries, activities and so forth ruled by the retrograde planet, will feel held back, restricted, misunderstood or weakened. This is also a time when you are given an opportunity to re-do, re-evaluate these areas. Many times it brings about a better solution or happier direction.

VENUS: July 25th - September 6th 2015
We all know Mercury rules the FLOW of money, but VENUS rules money itself. It also rules the signs of Taurus and Libra, beauty and love. When Venus is retrograde it would be best to postpone any makeovers, i.e. facelifts, change in hair styles/colors, even house remodels. It would be wise to wait to make changes in money or bank accounts and even changes in relationships. Love may cool down and you may wonder where the relationship is going. In July Venus will be transiting in Virgo and Aug 1st it will return to Leo. Where it will be when it turns direct on Sep 6th. Be careful signing contracts involving money as you may not be getting what you could get if Venus was strong. A word to the wise.

NEPTUNE: June 12th - November 18th
Ruler of Pisces sun signs/ascendants. It rules our dreams and fantasies and gives us rose colored glasses to soften life's harsh realities. It also rules drugs (script and otherwise), investigations, oils, musicians, observatories, actors, "aliens", floods, shipping, secret matters, submarines, and anything related to water (water tanks, water lines, etc). When it is retrograde – the rose colored glasses come off allowing clear vision. We become acutely aware of the issues and the truth that was alluding us. This is a time when we can see the dividing line between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy. Your intuition is sharp and your perceptions are on target. This is a more positive type of retrograde as long as you are aware things will become clear and/or out in the open. This could push you to make changes. It's like pulling your head out of the sand and realizing you need to RUN because the enemy is almost upon you! This retrograde is probably one of the better ones unless you live in a fantasy world.

SATURN: March 14th - August 2nd 2015
Saturn retrograded at 5 degrees Sagittarius in March. Before it returns to direct motion in August, it will retrograde back to 28 degrees of Scorpio touching Scorpios born Nov 19th, 20th, 21st, and 22nd one more time. Saturn stays in each sign roughly 2.5 years. So, once it leaves Scorpio in September, it will not return for close to 28-29 years. This was a tough transit for Scorpio AND Taurus sun signs. It is almost over! Saturn rules government, authority figures, bones, land owners, the dead, bankruptcy, hives (skin), joints, government buildings/public buildings, surveyors, timekeepers and mountains as examples. When it is transiting our personal planets, i.e. Sun, moon, venus, mars, mercury, it gives us an opportunity to handle our responsibilties in a disciplined manner. It can also restrict our activities in some ways. If you are involved in any land deals, etc right now, it could take quite some time to finalize the deal while Saturn is retrograde. Delays within Government are common. It is being given time to reexamine the progress that has been made (or not) and decide if and when changes should be made. When Saturn returns to direct motion in August, be ready to move forward.

URANUS: July 26th - December 25th 2015
It rules the sign of Aquarius, electricity, automobiles, assassination attempts, earthquakes, radio and tv, astrology, Bohemian, and Russia to name a few. When it is retrograde, Uranus gives the topics/countries that it rules, time for review, reconsideration. It also holds back some of its strength in order to allow for this. It's like slowing down as you approach an intersection to give you time to make sure you know which direction you want to go. With Uranus in Aries (unexpected, impulsive), this is actually a good thing as it pulls the energy back to a more manageable level. NEPTUNE: June 12th – Nov 18th Ruler of Pisces sun signs/ascendants. It rules our dreams and fantasies and gives us rose colored glasses to soften life's harsh realities. It also rules drugs (script and otherwise), investigations, oils, musicians, observatories, actors, "aliens", floods, shipping, secret matters, submarines, and anything related to water (water tanks, water lines, etc). When it is retrograde – the rose colored glasses come off allowing clear vision. We become acutely aware of the issues and the truth that was alluding us. This is a time when we can see the dividing line between fact and fiction, reality and fantasy. Your intuition is sharp and your perceptions are on target. This is a more positive type of retrograde as long as you are aware things will become clear and/or out in the open. This could push you to make changes. It's like pulling your head out of the sand and realizing you need to RUN because the enemy is almost upon you! This retrograde is probably one of the better ones unless you live in a fantasy world.

PLUTO: April 16th - September 25th 2015
Pluto pushes a transformative energy into play. It is considered to be the ruler of the sign of Scorpio as well as the 8th house in an astrological chart, and that house rules death, wills, inheritances, etc. If we can see the Pluto transit as an instrument for transformation for better things, it would perhaps become a favorite. Pluto is also considered to be a powerful energy for "big" money. When it is retrograde, the energy is weak, not gone, simply weakened. It allows time to reconsider what has already taken place regarding Pluto/Capricorn matters. This would now include banking and big business. Many times Scorpio sun signs feel as though their forward pace has slowed. The house in your astro chart ruled by Pluto usually needs attention or reviewing. Pluto is not getting along well with Uranus right now. They are in a love-hate relationship and as a result, the energy created explodes… stock market drops, banking troubles, authority breaches, government leaders challenged. Watch the days surrounding April 16th for headliners involving Afghanistan, Mexico, engineers, undergrounds places (or businesses), the Vatican, Egypt, grain dealers, and business deals to name a few.

Transiting Planets

If a slower moving planet connects with one of your personal planets such as your Sun, Venus, Mercury or Mars, it will initiate a reaction or event regarding the planet that is touched. Example: transiting Jupiter connects with your Venus. You could simply have a wonderful couple of "feeling good" days while this is active or maybe win a lottery, fall in love with someone or something, have a face-lift, settle a legal case, or set up a new banking account. It is helpful to know if this will be happening so you can plan better and be prepared to make it a good "connection". Here are the slower moving planets and the signs they will be travelling through in 2015:

Jupiter in Leo until August 2015 when it enters Virgo. Jupiter is the fastest moving of the slower planets, staying approximately one year in each sign. It takes approximately 12 years for Jupiter to travel through all 12 signs. Those Leo sun signs that are experiencing this transit will not have this again for approximately 12 years. Virgo suns are next to have this benefic planet transit their sign. Jupiter moved into the sign of LEO in July of 2014 shifting the spotlight to those who are world leaders, famous sports figures and anyone in the arts/entertainment area, higher education, an emphasis on foreign countries/people (including long trips) and anything "legal". It will still be in when 2015 begins. It will complete the transit of LEO in the summer of 2015. This is a positive energy for LEO sun signs. Keep egos in check and make sure you can walk your talk!! Keeping in mind the legal influence, you can also attract a legal situation if you use this energy in a negative way. For instance, receiving a speeding ticket, filing a lawsuit or being involved in one, etc. Once it enters the sign of VIRGO in August, an adjustment will be made. More on that in the August forecast.

Saturn in Sagittarius until December 2017. The last time Saturn was in Sagittarius was late 1985 into early 1988. It takes about 2.5 years to transit one sign. Scorpio sun signs are quite relieved as it finally exited Scorpio. It WILL return once again to Scorpio but only for very brief stay this summer and only effects 28 and 29 degrees of Scorpio. It is now Sagittarius' turn to feel the structuring, disciplining and in some cases restricting energy of this transit. Saturn's energy helps us better manage our talents and urges. It can bring unexpected responsibilities or even a health issue that requires discipline and focus to overcome. Commitments made during a transit of Saturn to a personal planet have endurance energy/longevity. Negatively, they can feel like heavy responsibilities! But it is not a bad energy for a good marriage or business partnership if all other aspects are supportive. This is the time to stay current with your medical exams especially if you are born under the sign of Sagittarius, OR have a personal planet in Sagittarius, OR have Sagittarius rising OR have Sagittarius on your house of health (6th house). If you have planets in the sign of Gemini, Saturn will, at some point, create an opposing energy. This can bring limitations (including medical conditions) or simply push you to organize and discipline your activities. It CAN feel really burdensome – even depressing - having Saturn in your sun sign (or opposing it), but you do not have to feel that way. With the ability to focus and accomplish, use Saturn's positive side to finish up projects or goals that have been set aside. Take on any added responsibilities as a learning experience that will benefit you. Hard work is usually required when Saturn is in your sign so be prepared to work hard and be rewarded accordingly. Remember, work smarter not harder.

Uranus, in Aries, will continue transiting the sign of Aries moving from 12 degrees to 20 degrees in 2015. It does retrograde during the year and in December 2015 it will have retrograded back to 16 degrees Aries from 20. If you have a planet in your astrological chart at 12-20 degrees Aries, Libra, Cancer or Capricorn, Uranus will energize that planet sometime in 2015. Libra sun signs born October 5 -15 will feel this energy as an opposing force. It is challenging but not as aggressively challenging as those born in the sign of Aries will feel. You could suddenly want to quit a job, seek a divorce, change your hair style, or even relocate when this happens. The energy of freedom loving Uranus is not predictable except to say it is unpredictable. Sudden changes, accidents, changes in beliefs, strong desire to be free, etc can all be part of this energy. Be careful in your desire to feel free, to break the rules, to make radical changes, especially if you are aged 41-43. Remember, once the transit completes, you will be living with the consequences of your actions and decisions! Uranus is sending kind vibes to Aquarius and Gemini but challenging the signs of Libra, Cancer, Capricorn, and of course, Aries.

Neptune, in Pisces, will move from 5 degrees to 7 degrees Pisces during 2015. It is very slow moving. Be cautious in business dealings and LOVE as Neptune energy can be evasive and deceiving you before you know it. Neptune has a strong spiritual side and connects to the higher realms. It also rules all liquids and the oceans, water, floods, drugs, hospitals, jails, bodily fluids including perspiration! Perhaps if your planets are contacted by this transiting Neptune, you will find yourself returning to church, restoring your faith, being drawn to the beach, or finding that true love! Watch out, though! Make sure you remove your rose colored glasses before making major decisions. Virgo sun signs may find themselves working with Pisces sun signs or changing careers to work in a Pisces industry i.e., oil, ink, ocean liners, entertainment, singing, children, any music or acting, etc. Virgo sun signs will feel the opposing energy creating feelings of vagueness and mystery. Enjoy this opportunity to not only dream but to also see your dreams come true.

Pluto, in Capricorn, will transit 13, 14 and 15 degrees of Capricorn in 2015. Those born Jan 2-7, Apr 2-7, Jul 3 -9 and Oct 5-10 will most likely feel this transit more directly. In an astrological chart if you have personal planets at 13, 14, or 15 degrees of Capricorn, Aries, Cancer or Libra, you will feel the transformative power of Pluto as it interacts with that planet. It can involve corruption, drugs, sexual desires, skin and teeth issues, government planning, the disciplining parent, and big business to name a few. Pluto in Capricorn helps define economic changes that will be beneficial and strong. Capricorn rules big business and government and government officials. These may be headliners in 2015. The changes being made will be long lasting ones as Capricorn is cautious and responsible. A very positive use of the energy would be to overhaul any area of your life that needs improvement. Emotionally you could embark on a new way of looking at life.A word to the wise should be sufficient! Virgo and Taurus -- fellow earth signs of Capricorn -- should find the transformations and changes, very positive and easier to integrate.

Void of Course Moon
When the transiting moon makes no aspect to a transiting planet, it is considered to be VOID. During these void periods – which can last a few minutes or a few days – it is best to avoid signing sign contracts, interviewing for jobs, or setting important appointments. Why? Because appointments are usually delayed or rescheduled altogether or they do not turn out as expected. Contracts have delays or have to be re-negotiated, etc. Job interviews turn out to be non-productive or empty promises are made. If, for instance, a first interview does occur and appears positive, you may be asked to start ASAP or have to interview with additional people. Individually, if you are under excellent aspects from transiting planets, this will then be a good time to proceed even though the moon is void.

I feel that during void moon energy, solutions to problems can be found. Therefore, it is an excellent time for lawyers to find loopholes in cases or uncover evidence that will turn a case in their favor. Lost items are found or returned during this energy at a higher percentage than when the moon is not void. Any computer glitches that have evaded solution can suddenly be resolved. You can be lucky and win a lottery or raffle. Keep in mind that during a VOID MOON, any activities undertaken usually take TWICE as long to accomplish!!! There is an element of LUCK associated with VOID energy. Use it wisely!

One thing is for certain -- always expect the unexpected during a VOID of COURSE MOON timeframe -- good and bad -- and be prepared for delays.

Be blessed always!
