What the Void? It’s the Friday Moon!

posted in: Moon Phases | 0

 

Making plans for this Friday? Head’s up! It’s a void-of-course moon all day on Friday, July 14, 2017.

What’s a void-of-course? It is the time period when the Moon is traveling between astrological signs. The Moon is not making an aspect to any particular planet.

I mention this because it’s practically all day on Friday for the V/C from 10 am PST to 5p PST.

Along with the moon phases, I watch the V/C moon times carefully. Instead of a negative vibe of what not to do, I try to focus on positive activities. There are quite a few that pretty much guarantee a successful transition when the Moon moves along again.

Void-of-Course Moon on Friday July 14, 2017 Riding Moon Cycles

On the job, I’ve always done my best to avoid important assignments and reports during the void-of-course moon. Delay as much as humanly possible for another day. Sometimes delay is not an option if you are not in control of your schedule, but knowing the void-of-course times in advance can help when you do have a choice in the matter. This practice got me through many years of corporate employment with a positive reputation, just by following the moon phases and the V/C whenever I had an opportunity to voice a preference.

Here are activities that I find work well during the V/C – in no particular order. It’s a list of suggestions for the type of day you can schedule. You’ll find me with a full laundry basket on most V/C days.

  • Social time with known friends and no agenda
  • Rest, movies, music
  • Filing, putting things away
  • Routine work activities
  • Laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Mending
  • General chores
  • Garden maintenance
  • Routine personal care and pampering
  • Work an ongoing project – no starting, deciding, finishing

Attending to chores and routine maintenance makes for a great start of the next astrological sign because everything is set to go.

I’ve never had an original idea start during a V/C moon that manifested into a success. And I have made lists of them. I make a point of NOT thinking up new ideas. And I love new ideas!

I also make a point of not trying to organize something new or try to throw things out. It’s not a great time for final decisions.

I hope this moon cycle tip works for you this week. I am so glad you stopped by today!

Full Moon Coming June 9 Friday

The Full Moon on Friday June 9 shows its full light to us. We are now exactly opposite the New Moon. The Sun and Moon are farthest apart in the cycle.

Full Moon June 9, 2017 Friday

This means facing the full light of what was started at the New Moon. For good or ill, it is now time to size up the situation just as it is.

Actively pursue some type of finish to a project or issue, which could be one step in a larger plan. Declare a completion for now.

Take a few moments to look in the sky at the Full Moon.

Accept current results, without too much criticism, no matter what it is:

• Positive result: If there was a sincere attitude developed since the New Moon, and the challenge was faced and figured out, then the Full Moon brings a sense of resolve and determination.

• Negative result: If you ignored the bumpy issue, which happens to all of us at some point, then expect a mental conflict and perhaps a stalled project. The cycle moves on and it’s okay.

• Neutral result: If you haven’t the least idea of what this means, for either positive or negative, then look forward to working with the cycle to find out. The cycle works as a whole unit with necessary preparation time, goal-setting, visioning and execution – all in their proper phase. There is a chance to start again – especially now, at the Full Moon to prepare for the next round of the cycle.

Pull back a little after the immense effort of putting your mark upon the world and loosen up. Have a good laugh at all of the flapping around you have done in the last weeks to change the world. You may have changed a little, too.

Lunar Hair Tip #4 – Condition

posted in: Lunar Hair Chart | 0

 

Lunar hair care principles for conditioning call for specific astrological signs.

Lunar Hair Tip #4 - Condition Hair

Not everyone agrees exactly on when to condition hair with a lunar hair chart. Some say to apply moisture when the moon is in a fertile or semi-fertile class of sign presumably with the theory of “like begets like” with the property of absorption. However, many more experts on lunar hair care vote to add the wetness during barren and semi-barren signs.

Two semi-barren signs stand out for their dry, hot classes with the quality of Fire: Aries and Sagittarius.

The next two barren signs of Gemini (wet, Air) and Leo (dry, Fire) are added. Both are classed as hot.

Aquarius is added for classes of semi-barren and hot.

You may wonder, as I did, why not Virgo? While it is in the barren class, its Earth quality leaves it out. Virgo is also classes as cold which does not fit with the other hot astrological signs.

Why not Libra? It is Air like Gemini, but is semi-fertile and already classed with moisture. Libra does not offer the required qualities of the other signs.

One thing that all agree on for lunar hair care is that the best phase is the waxing moon as the right time of the moon cycle to condition hair.

Aries, Gemini, Leo, Sagittarius, and Aquarius are the qualified astrological signs to choose during the waxing moon for conditioning hair.

Specific dates for conditioning hair with these signs are in the Lunar Hair 2017 book on Amazon.
