Today the moon is in Scorpio. I suggest more sex, lol! Lacking that a good mystery will do!

Here's a link I found with suggestions for activities when the moon is in different signs.

Today with the moon in Libra it's good to pamper yourself, maybe a pedicure or something to help you feel pretty. Or do an activity with your partner. Sex comes to mind, lol! ;-)

I totally agree! Especially this moon in Virgo, cause it's getting along so well with all the Capricorn planets!

Moon is in Virgo today which means it is a good day to take care of routine details. Make a list and check it off. A good day for things like cleaning the house, too. I find it easy to get my exercise done when then moon is in Virgo because Virgo is very health conscious. It's easy to eat healthy with the moon in Virgo, too.

I found this article and thought it was a good one for this thread:

Grrr8! It'd be grr8 if u or some1 could kinda guide us as to the temperment of the different phases & placement of the moon & planets to help us make better choices with our wt loss/better health efforts.

I hope I didn't confuse u! I can read an almanac & understand what sign the moon is in. But I don't know the 'personality' so to speak, when it's in that sign.

I think this would help a lot of us. I know I'm grr8ly interested in learning.

Hi Jewel - I don't know about "words of wisdom" !!
but I can say a couple of things.
Moon in Libra, not exactly known for its "go-getter" attributes!...but we are building up to the Full Moon on Saturday, so tonite, and all the few days leading up to it, notice the increased intensity of emotion. I'M feeling it already!!! To me, more emotional means more desire to eat "comfort foods".
Stay strong!

...I like your Goals for the week. Try to keep it simple, so its more attainable. If u can, I'd recommend having a continuation of goals into next week, also. Leo has the tendency to want to do everything BIG and Dramatic, but really, keeping it simple is best with learning new habits!

just popped in to say hi & hope ev1 is haveing a grr8 day!

Any1 have any words of wisdom for me for today?
As the Moon is in Libra...
My Sun is Cancer...
My Moon is Pisces...
My Rising is Leo...

My plans for this wk....
I'm cutting down on bad carbs, upping protein, upping exercise (atleast making it a habit), no pop, cutting sodium.

My plans for next week...
WATP Program, Prevention's Outsmart Diabetes Program, very little bad carbs, hi-protein,

Is Libra a good sign for changing, &/or making new plans?

Thanks, to both of you, this is what I was looking for!
BTW!, I am diabetic, & I'm retaining water, BIG TIME!!! They've already doubled both my fluid pills, & my foot dr. told me yestrd to discuss uping my water pills, otherwise my feet may 'burst open' causing sores & ulcers.

OOPS. Sorry, Jewel. Probably should wait, for Mercury to go direct again, in a couple more days, so my Mind is more reliable!

Here was my thinking, if u can call it that...You are a Cancer, with Mercury in Cancer and Pisces Moon. You are very influenced by your Moods and emotions. So let's say the Moon is in Cancer or Pisces...you could find yourself wanting to escape into fantasy more, and be more emotional than usual...and have less willpower with eating for emotional comfort. Make any sense?

The sign Cancer is very oral. It also has the tendency to retain water, so watching your Sodium intake, a good idea! And knowing that the scale is also reflecting that water retention, meaning, water is also heavy in your body.

I have Jim Maynard's calander, the "pocket" version, called The Pocket Astrologer and I carry with me everywhere and it really is awesome!

Did you look up the Pluto transit I suggested, Jewel? Did you learn anything from that?

I haven't looked at your chart but with a Cancer-Pisces emphasis I think understanding your relationship to food as a comfort and learning to find alternative comforts in place of food would be very important in long term health management.

But of course, I think just about every woman has to learn how to deal with emotional eating!

Hi Jewel. Well, I guess I can think of Something?
I would get an astrological calendar, and follow along with the Moon signs. Jim Maynard's is good, and Llewellyn is OK. They will explain what MOOD each moon sign puts you in...because you will be very affected by the Moon's energy, and it will help you to be self-aware...

Nutrition wise, I have to advise, to try to stay away from Sweets. Less sugar, less mood swings,and you won't crave sweets as much.

Tell me, what you want to work on. Is it Portion control, staying away from Desserts, or Carbohydrates? In any case, try not to eat foods that are WHITE. Eat brown rice, instead of white.
No bread or pasta that is white. Whole grains.
Vegetables. Eat 3 small meals, and 2 snacks a day.

Hope that helps?

OK. let me give it another try, since you did that so well, Nikki.

I use my Moon in Sagitarius, to try to keep my food choices interesting, since I like variety.

I use my Saturn in Virgo, and my Moon in the 6th house, to focus on the importance of Nutrition, and knowing how important my Attitude is towards my body.

I use my knowledge of Cancer on the Ascendent, to realize my tendency to retain a LOT of water - so to try to keep my Sodium intake LOW.

And I use my Sun in Aquarius, to enjoy sharing what I've learned with Others on this site!...and to enjoy having Virtual friends.

I use my objective Aquarius sun to put distance between myself and any bad habits like emotional eating. I like to make weight loss and health intellectually interesting and stimulating.

I use my Virgo rising to discriminate how to make healthier choices.

I use Mars in Capricorn square Pluto in the 1st for exercise.

Hey Jewel, I didn't look at your chart but I can tell you are going through transiting Pluto's opposition of your sun right now. If you haven't researched it then google "Pluto transits" and look at Pluto opposite sun. It's a big one.

Hey you guys, this section is supposed to be about - Using Astrological strenghs to lose weight...so quit posting other stuff here or I'll have to give you a demerit!

Let's see, how does an Aquarius lose weight? Well, since I am rebellious, its not easy...constantly arguing with my Inner child, who wants to do what she wants!...I'm also not good at Systems or schedules...so I don't do Team challenges. Wait a second, I keep talking about the Problems I have losing weight, and I'm supposed to be talking about Strengths!!! OK lets see. Well, one good thing, is I don't care for Rich foods, like some signs do! So thats helpful. Oh, I give up.

Hi jewel, are you new to the team? If so, Welcome!
It would be best to tell us your exact time of birth, and date and location. That way I can read where planets fall in your houses, and check out where the nodes of the moon fall as well.
...example, are Venus,Mars,Uranus conjunct? and are they in the 12 house or the 1st house? How close are they to your Ascendent?

You are mostly the elements of Water (Cancer and Pisces) and Fire (Leo)...so your temperment is very emotional and sensitive,and imaginative-that's the Water element,

and also fiery - enthusiastic and intuitive, and planets in Leo, bring the element of Drama and energy. People are drawn to Leo energy as a moth to a flame.

Leo rising is the sign of a natural born Performer, likes to be the center of attention.

Good for you, Jibbie! I say for me: no more complaining! I've been practicing this for a year or more now but with all the Virgo I notice myself complaining more and more. No more complaining allowed in my head or out of my mouth!

With the Sun in Virgo conjuncting Saturn in Virgo and this is my SATURN RETURN, I just used today with the MOON in Libra (I'm a Libra) to KICK-OFF my START. I feel SO good today. I always procrastinate and let my NASTY SPONDULEX critic get her way and today, I just decided to engage the stubborn power of SATURN and say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. This 28 year Saturn CYCLE, I will do for ME. No more procrastination. emoticon

Moon in Leo in the 11th house. I've always been stumped by the both the north and south nodes in my chart since they are Capricorn in the 4th and Cancer in the 10th they are each in the house ruled by the opposite sign, so I seem to be moving away from both Cancer and 10th house things and toward Capricorn and 4th house things. That seems like the same thing to me so I have come to think it must mean that this Cancer-Capricorn polarity is one of the areas I must balance in my life this time around. I would be grateful for any insight you might have.

Nikki, thats interesting, your N.Node in Capricorn, 4th house. So, let's see...that puts your S.Node in Cancer, ruled by the Moon. So, that makes your Moon very important in terms of your Past Karma. What house is your Moon in, I wonder? (Just testing my new knowledge of Evolutionary Astrology, here!)
You don't have to indulge me, unless u feel like it.

Hi Ellen, come join us in the How's the Weather Thread for daily discussions of transits, etc.

I have been reading this weekend about nodes, too. My north node is in Capricorn in the 4th house.

I am drawn to Scorpio energy, too, or are they drawn to me? Hmmmm... but I have Pluto in the 1st which makes me nearly a Scorpio rising, and I can definitely be private. I agree with the intensity, and also think we Aquarius appreciate the stubbornness of the other fixed signs.

These threads are SO interesting. Too bad, most of them are from Last year! Anyway, I have been involved with studying the Moon's nodes, and their meaning, not just for past lives, but in this life as well! I would recommend Isabel Hickey's book, on spiritual astrology...also Stephen Forrest's work, on
evolutionary astrology, based mainly on studying the moon's nodes! My north node is in Aries, in the 10th house, and I know a major challenge is to Not avoid people, by hiding in the home, and also to build a strong and determined Ego and express it through a career in the Public Eye. Building Courage (Aries)and a stronger, more defined Personality. That much I have done, in my older years! But it sure took me awhile. Nikki, I am also drawn to Scorpio energy, for various reasons (chart wise) I share a lot of their emotional intensity - but in so many ways, we are opposites..Aquarius and Scorpio are always going to Be opposites, so its not gonna be smooth sailing.
My current S.O. is a Scorpio, and one of the challenges, is that I don't have a Secretive bone in my body, and you know about Scorpio..?!!!

Thank you :) I feel much better today. I needed a good night's sleep and the reassurance that yesterday was an all around healthy day. I think I am just cracking under the strain of working overtime for the past 3 weeks and not seeing my husband enough because of it. I'll be fine. My success is up to me, and at least I'm trying!

All you can do is do what you can, Keri, and sometimes what you can do is more than at other times.

I took the last 3 days off of tracking my food since I was out of town and it's funny because there is a part of me (Virgo) that wants to try to remember what I ate and still track anyway! I just have to let it go, lol!

And P.S.
I am trying my best to get back on track, because I miss it all. I am getting my 8 glasses a day, bringing healthy snacks to work, working out on my lunch hour, and trying to be mindful of what I'm eating. BUT with my crazy schedule, I am unable to be perfect about it, and therefore it seems to be doing nothing, or working against me! :(

Not happy today. Not happy at all.
I'm starting to buckle under the pressure. My job is demanding, my husband works an oppsite shift (meaning I never see him, and he is a big part of my sanity), I keep getting bigger while my clothes keep getting smaller, my hormones are out of whack cause we're trying to get pregnant soon and I'm now off the pill. UGH - I want to scream!

Yes he does and so do I. The DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) just re-opened here after an extensive remodel and it is a very good art museum. It's cute because we are full of ideas of things to do. Our last couple of dates have been at his house then at my house and I think we need to spend some more time in public getting to know each other better because, well, you get the idea, I'm sure. And he and I both have Thursday off of work so we are spending the day at the museum. Quite romantic, isn't it?

Sounds like it's been really busy for you!

The dating is going well. Made dinner for him tonight. He came over for the first time. It was fun. I asked for some astrological data and even though I was nervous to see what it said I think it looks good.

Scorpio sun, Aquarius moon, Libra rising. His moon in Aquarius is between my Venus and sun in Aquarius, which seems particularly nice to me.

He is Libra rising but with Mercury and the sun both in Scorpio in the first house. He also has 4 planets in Virgo in his 11th house.

His data: Nov 9, 1967 5:30 a.m. Almont, MI

That makes sense! People are all reflecting our shadow self, light and dark shadows both, and I keep trying to work with similar issues myself as its kind of paradoxical. Glad you had an insight! Hope that the dating is going ok, I have been so overwhelmed lately have not had any time to post or do anything!

I know there hasn't been any conversation going on here but I had an astrological insight yesterday I'd like to share.

I have had a problem relating to (other peoples') Scorpio energy in my life, and now I have discovered the problem is not with other people's Scorpio energy but rather with my own. I am Virgo rising but with Pluto in my first house it gives me an energy similar to Scorpio rising. I did not realize that Pluto in the first house could manifest this way, In fact, any first house planets add another dimension of complexity to the personality (or any planet in the 12th house within 6 degrees of the 1st house cusp). I thought my mystery came from Aquarius, but I think it might have this strong Scorpio undertone that I have previously been unaware of. My powers of deduction and transformative energy can easily be attributed to this Pluto-Scorpio facet to my first house. I think this is very cool and I think I'll do better with Scorpio through studying my own Scorpio energy.

I love astrology!

Happy Hanukkah, Sheila and anyone else who celebrates Hanukkah!

I am feeling Saturn on me strongly today and I think there has got to be a way to harness Saturn to help lose weight. The discipline and restrictions of Saturn seem like they would lend themselves well to weight loss efforts.

Today Saturn is in opposition to my sun and at the same time Mercury is conjunct my Neptune, activating the Neptune-Saturn opposition in my chart and the Neptune-Mercury square, and of course Mercury is square Saturn in my chart, also. Both of these transits are exact today and I am not sure if it's PMS or what, but Uranus is also only 3 degrees from my natal Mercury, too, and I feel electrified, annoyed, restricted, misunderstood, escapist, and impatient, all at the same time. I also have to go to the dentist today which I am trying not to dread.

The only way I know to deal with Saturn is to accept those restrictions in order to move forward. I'd like to figure out to get Saturn to work for me but today may not be the day for that for me. Any ideas would be helpful.

I do have an idea of focusing on the flowing aspects I have with Saturn to take advantage of some latent gifts, perhaps. For example, I have an almost exact Venus-Saturn trine in my chart to perhaps focusing on my own creativity and personal art would empower Saturn to help me in other ways, also. Does that make sense?

Sorry for rambling and I hope this post makes sense. Mercury conjunct natal Neptune for me today.

Is that what retrograde planets mean? I have a couple in my chart ... oh, Uranus and Pluto, both in Libra (relationships? lol) in the first and second house. At least they aren't personal planets, but they are both strongly aspected to all of my personal planets except Mercury ... I will certainly have to study this more. It all makes so much sense, really, especially in terms of the past life things I have been dealing with.

*North Node in 12th House

You are finding peace, solace and spiritual meaning in this life. You will make fortunate contacts with those who are able to give selflessly, and with spiritual teachers and higher spiritual powers.

*South Node in 6th House

You need to break away from obsessive, perfectionist habits

Ugh could this possibly be true too?!
*North Node in Cancer

You are learning to care for and nurture others in this life. You will make fortunate contacts with people who nurture and care for you.

*South Node in Capricorn

You need to break away from strong ambitions and over-concern about your achievements and reputation.

This is so true but am really not motivated by this any more, and much more by my spiritual and nurturing side.

I looked at mine again and my North node is in Cancer in my 12th house, my South node in Capricorn in my 6th house. They are retrograde too, so must be lessons I have failed to learn before oops.

The nodes are confusing because of the south and north and true/ascendant nodes are all referred to as nodes so things get loony ... it's that mysterious moon perhaps clouding the facts.

Actually when I was researching nodes online I discovered that all the planets have nodes but the lunar nodes are the only ones that are really ever used in interpretation.

I did look at the north and south nodes as the "karmic windows", so to speak, and big surprise for me it's all about the individual versus relationships. My entire chart seems to be about that. lol!

See, that's funny because the other day when the moon was in Cancer I was very nostalgic, too, and thinking of the past. And I am not usually nostalgic, ever, so having that at your 4th house would make family even more important to you. Like you say, it would mean that family is everything to you.

Oh that sounds very nice! I'd like to learn more about the nodes and to hear your experience helps me see how it can apply to me. Is your 4th house a water sign in your chart? Mine is Capricorn and I rarely get sentimental then, but I'm going to pay attention the next time the moon comes through and see how I feel when it passes over my true node. You are talking about your true node and not your south node, right? Because I think the south node also represents our roots and where we come from just as the 4th house does. Or at least that's how I understand it.

i have my node and mars in 4th house too. More than that, i had the moon transiting my node yesterday. I realized i had all day remembering the past, my childhood, my dad, my grand parents. Then after lunch i hanged out with my mum, and we don't know how, but we started remembering their parents (my grandparents) and my grand grand mother, who she loved. So I came home, opened my astrology software and cheked the transits for yesterday... and there it was the moon passing through my beautiful node in 4th.
LOL

Hi, I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

To answer my own question in my previous post I looked it up online and the true node (or ascendant node) is something different than the north node. The north and south node are always in opposite houses (for me 1st & 7th houses). The true node is where the "wobble" of the moon is, whatever that means. But interesting enough mine is in my 4th house and there is certainly an emotional "wobble" there for me, but Mars is in my 4th house, too, so maybe that is what I am interpreting as a "wobble".

I get confused with the nodes. Is the north node also called the true node and the ascendant node? If so then I think my north node is in my 4th house (in Capricorn) and my south node is in my 7th house (in Aries). I would like to learn more about the nodes. I don't really understand them.

Sheila, I think doing the work of Saturn is not only necessary but I agree it will lead to rewards down the road. I had a very hard time when Saturn was in Leo and crossed my moon. I feel like I've been dealing with Saturn for a long time. But I'm actually pretty happy about this transit because I see with it the opportunity to release these old issues once and for all.

It's interesting, I got my book on TMJ and I think I can trace the roots of this with me to an accident I had when I was 6 or 7 years old. The TMJ book says that age is often when the first signs of TMJ occur. That would have been when Saturn was in Virgo before, too, and crossed my ascendant. The accident knocked out my brand new front teeth, which has quite a bit to do with how one appears to the world (1st house). So in one sense I am very excited to complete this 29 year cycle. It might take time to work through these things but in one sense that's why we are here, right?

Nicole, when I have had difficult Saturn transits in the past, it was time to put in the hard work on issues I had never truly dealt with that were in my way and causing me difficulty. The results of my hard work came much later.

I have also worked with past life regression and hypnosis, too. It has been helpful, and has certainly increased my spirituality. I love Brian Weiss and have been to a seminar of his, even. I also have worked with a local hypno-therapist and regressionist. I would love to go back to him but it is expensive. Maybe I'll save my money for another visit based on what I have discovered:

Last night I cherry picked some subjects from one of my new books, and two things seemed to explain almost everything that is going on with me right now:

First, Saturn is transiting my 12th house. I should expect to have an opportunity to continue working on all of these hidden 12th life issues. I should probably take into consideration that as Saturn will approach my ascendant it will also square my natal Saturn, further intensifying these issues and also giving me the opportunity to resolve and release these things. Saturn is a slow mover, so I should expect this to continue for a while. In terms of karma I may even be able to release these past life issues for good and re-create a new me over the next couple of years when Saturn crosses my Ascendant and goes through my 1st house.

Second, my sun is in Aquarius and in aspect (trine) to Uranus. This gives me a lot of nervous energy and tension. It also gives me some hyper-sensitivity, or a feeling of always being on edge. I think that continuing to work on grounding myself (both in terms of centering myself and in terms of electricity and nervousness) I can manage it. It's not like I don't already realize I'm a bit high-strung, lol.

I have done past-life regression on several occasions, and hypnosis for child-birth that also cleared a lot of related past lives in preparation for giving birth. It really helped release a lot of stuff from those lives and these ones. I think it makes a lot of sense, and things like TMJ issues are definitely often related to a previous life I think.

Interesting, I think my TMJ is from a past life issue, too. I don't know if that is supported astrologically in my chart or not but I got my new books in the mail and will endeavor to find out over the next few weeks!

Anna, it is interesting that you mentioned possible health problems from past lives in my chart (Chiron in Aquarius). I just recently discovered that I am sensory defensive... which might have caused(?) my bipolar dis-order or is hand and hand with it.

Has anyone else heard of this? It really feels like it is carried over from another time and now I have the opportunity to transmute it. Woo hooo! Nothing like getting to the nitty gritty of transformation...

Do any of you look at the south and north nodes as the "karmic" window into your life? I have a book about it that is interesting (of course I don't remember the title at the moment).

Well Anna, you were right about the losing inches part. (darn.. new clothes coming up ... grin) I didn't lose any more pounds but lost an inch each on waist and hips. Cool.

Yes Nicole, I do like to aim for goals... but follow through is not always included.. I do have a few fixed signs in there to help me, I'll do what I can to draw on them.

Meghan, I would think that the Sag in you would appreciate setting big goals. You know, giving yourself something to aim at! And I have lost 22 pounds so far and am a size smaller top and a size smaller bottom, but I am pretty busty so that might depend on how each of our bodies are different.

I'm looking forward to learning more about you and more about your signs. I think when we learn what energies help activate us it helps us reach our goals not only in terms of weight loss but in other areas, too.

That makes sense with the Libran Moon, but you can definitely draw on the active Sag energy as well. Looks like you are already on track with your weightloss and what you are doing is working!

No, I hadn't seen the second part! Thanks Anna. It is helpful to bring the houses into the equation. Home is incredibly important to me and something I had known from my chart. (the loss of my husband was not as difficult as it might seem to others as he was so ready to move on)
I must admit to being the scholarly sag more than the active one I'm afraid, but nonetheless, I am very good at reinventing myself. Just recently I have felt a unification at my core and so think I will find it easier to draw on whatever qualities are needed for wholeness on a day to day basis.

I was thinking swimming too from your chart? I don't think it has to be a large group of people but a small group of close friends makes perfect sense (with all the planets where they are in your chart too) either way I think you can do it!

You have Mars in Pisces in your 8th house, that can be a not too driven sign for Pisces to be in, so you have to take your more determined signs to focus on your exercise plan I think (not to mention the Libran moon) you have the drive and determination, but have to organize and focus, plus I imagine its not too hard for you to lose weight, as I mentioned before Sag is normally so active and busy. Pluto in Virgo is in your first house so a great potential to transform your physical appearence there, especially through more natural and holistic things, like healthy diet etc. Thats a generational sign for it to be in, but its particularly in regard to your physical appearence in your chart. Chiron in Aquarius is in your 6th house indicating maybe health issues from past lives you have to work through, also work related issues maybe? Chiron is supposed to show the wound on your soul and thats where it is in your chart. You have a lot of planets at the Nadir of your chart so your home life must be very important for you. I know you lost your husband, and that must have been so hard, but you really do have a great capacity for transformation and a wonderfully positive attitude (from your chart and it seems to exude from your page). I think you will be one of the SP success stories! Hope that makes sense.

Over the past two years I finally realized that it is silly to wait until I am at goal weight to buy new clothes, so I have lots of sassy but casual and eclectic, beautiful on me clothes. My Sag wants the comfort, the Leo the flash and the Libra the harmony of color and fabrics.
You may be right about the group thing, but I am bipolar and am very anxious in groups.(the water in my chart? scorpio venus and pisces mars, I'm afraid I'm not very conversant with the houses) It is best for me to be a part of a small group of familiar people and you are right, hiking and walking with friends is enjoyable.

I would think the libran moon would be your biggest hurdle to overcome for your weight-loss too! I have not looked at your chart right now but the Leo Asc would be very helpful, as its so determined and wants to look good! I would imagine exercising in a more social situation and outdoors as well would be good for you, not solitary pursuits. Like at the gym with buddies, walking or hiking groups, team sports and suchlike. I know Sag is so energetic and active its easy to lose weight and be fit, but the Libran moon is the opposite so balancing that act is the trick. I bet you can do it though with all that fire and dynamism!! Then you can go buy some lovely clothes to satisfy your Leo asc AND Libran moon!! I am a Leo married to a Sag and HE never has a problem losing weight, its quite depressing lol!!!

As I am lazy and not going to go back and read every single post in this thread.. (ya, that Libra moon), perhaps someone can tell me what influences I am looking for in my birth chart that most immediately affect my weight and exercise challenges.
