(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Leo
Do something fun, amusing, and entertaining - even if you are in a work environment. Jupiter is also in Leo so be ready to take your playtime out of the ordinary and into an unbounded area of interest. Just remember to maintain some semblance of dignity when relating to others (Leo is a very dignified sign).
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday am: the Moon is in Virgo
Venus is in Gemini, a sign that is square Virgo, however both sign are ruled by the planet Mercury which means that the challenging aspect of this connection (difficulties with communication or sorting information) may not be as evident. What will likely replace it will be a plethora, an inundation, of either or both of those categories.
Thursday pm, Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Libra
Mars in Taurus is quincunx, also known as inconjunct, the Moon in Libra. Typically this is know as a problematic connection between two planets. But when you look at it as a geometric pattern of five points, you find that there are four points forming a square with the fifth point located in the middle. The bottom line is that you can choose the problematic stance to anything that comes up or you can formulate a posture of creativity and harmony.
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.

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
