(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday am (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse): the Moon is in Libra
All types of relationships but especially the very close ones may be on the front burner, so to speak, starting late last week and lasting through Tuesday of this week. A lunar eclipse is always connected to a Full Moon and all the emotions that come up around that time. It can signal a crisis or some kind of drama, and it can also point out changes that will be coming into your life. Most eclipse energy lasts about six months (solar to solar & lunar to lunar). So, review your personal connections and see if something needs to be addressed. And since this eclipse is in Libra, approach any relationship changes with tact and diplomacy.
Tuesday pm, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Off with their heads - now is the time to swashbuckle in and divide things into two categories, one to keep and one to not. There's no point in clogging up your life with outdated, outmoded, or just plain over-with situations, people, or possessions. This is not the time to waffle about in shades of gray - Scorpio likes a clear-cut yes or no.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Kick your heels up and have a fantasmagorical (fantastic/magical) time! Moon in Sag is always ready to jump into the world of play and imagination (quite similar to Leo). Sagittarius likes to move, to stimulate the body and the mind. Have you been dancing lately?
Check your astrology chart to find which house (section of your chart) has the current Moon sign on the cusp (the beginning edge) & apply forecast information to that area of your life as well.
For example, the Moon is in Leo and one of the suggestions is to entertain - however Leo is located in the 12th house of your chart, which is an inward energy place...then have a small, quiet gathering. By contrast, if Leo is located in the 1st house of your chart, an outward energy place...have a party! Don't have an astrology chart? Click here .
It is interesting to note when the current Moon is in the same sign as your birth Moon and to see how the flavor of that day carries through the following 30 days.
Current Planet Positions:
Sun - Aries, until Apr. 20
Mercury - Aries, until Apr. 23
Venus - Pisces, until May 3
Mars - Libra, until July 26
Jupiter - Cancer, until July 16
Saturn - Scorpio, until Sept. 18, 2015
(Sagittarius - Dec. 24, 2014-June 14, 2015)
Uranus - Aries, until Mar. 6, 2019
(Taurus - May 16, 2018-Nov. 7, 2018)
Neptune - Pisces, until Mar. 30, 2025
Pluto - Capricorn, until Nov. 20, 2024
Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres - Libra, until Aug. 8
Pallas - Virgo, until Aug. 12
Juno - Aries, until Apr. 22
Vesta - Libra, until July 31
Chiron - Pisces, until Apr. 22, 2018
(Chiron usually stays in one sign for about a little over two years, very similar to Saturn's travels. However this time it is making an extended visit to a sign.)
Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres - Self-acceptance, sensitivity to others, and balanced relationships are highlighted.
Pallas - Consider things in their simplest form, in their basic essence rather than shrouded in all that is going on around them.
Juno - Independence and a sense of freedom or autonomy may be necessary in close partnerships, business or personal.
Vesta - Don't give away your own needs & desires; participate in reciprocal situations.
Chiron - Transcend wounds and negativity through compassion.
Note: Timeframes for Moon signs, void-of-course periods, and current planet & asteroid positions are noted for Eastern time zone (USA). Please adjust according to your own location. Times are not given if the void-of-course Moon occurs for a very short period or if it occurs during the night (based on same Eastern time zone).
* v/c = Void-of-Course - When the Moon is void-of-course, spend time working on projects already in progress, creative endeavors, or self-improvement. Void-of-course simply means that no planets are aspecting the Moon as it gets ready to change signs; there won't be a configuration of astro energy available to utilize. It's best not to start new projects, sign important agreements, or go shopping when the Moon is void-of-course because the result will probably be unsatisfactory in some way.
** Mercury Retrograde - the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Communications, paperwork, electronics, traffic and mail can become very mixed-up, delayed, or go on the 'fritz' during this time. A situation will be in the process of changing, so wait until Mercury is direct to finalize anything. In general, maintain a slower, more cautious pace in daily affairs. Always allow at least two days before (to slow down) and after (to resume regular activities) a Mercury retrograde period. Read More about Mercury Retrograde here
