Moon Phase

The Phase of the Moon: Last Quarter

at 10/22/16 12:13 PM

A stressful and unsettled period. Your ambitions are being stirred up and there is a desire to do something very important and show everyone how cool you are. However, the best way forward is to think thoroughly before doing anything and to direct your energy towards jobs planned earlier, rather than ideas which have just sprung into your head now.

To see the phases of the Moon for any month and any location, use the Astrological Moon Calendar. To learn about the phases of the Moon, read The Phases of the Moon: Their Essence and Astrological Meaning

Moon Sign

The Moon is in the Sign of Leo, at 3° 27'

10/24/16 8:16 PM

The desire to be noticeable, appreciated, and to feel you are the centre of other people's attention will be dominant. There is a stronger than usual desire to hear praise, and your emotions will be expressed vividly and openly. This is a good time to perform and appear on stage, to play, create and do everything which inspires you and lets you express your inner self. However, your ability to perceive details and nuances could deteriorate at this time.

You can find out in which sign of the Zodiac the Moon was or will be located on any day using the Astrological Moon Calendar.

Moon Void-of-Course

Void of Course: Later

10/24/16 5:20 AM

It is believed that anything undertaken when the Moon is void-of-course will bring no result. But there is also another, positive facet of the void-of-course Moon: if something risky or difficult is undertaken, something where other people can create a problem or interrupt you, this time seems to be beneficial, because those who might create a problem can do nothing against you.

To find out when the Moon was void-of-course for any day of any month, use the Astrological Moon Calendar. Here is an article about the void-of-course Moon.
