(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Capricorn
This sign is often uncomplicated, serious, and self-controlled (depending on what planetary connections and house location may contribute to or modify the traits). That's why organization & orderliness are two of the talents or abilities that are frequently available for use when the Moon is going through Capricorn.
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Innovative and experimental are two words in the list of descriptors for this sign and two words that define some of the astro energies available during Moon in Aquarius time. Being open to unusual ideas could be very beneficial.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Pisces
Sometimes the instinctive urge to follow one's intuition is the best and only way to go. It can be confusing to know exactly when there's a flash of intuition and when it's actually an ego experience that is trying to take over unless you have allowed the subconscious to float to the surface often enough that you know you can trust it.
Saturday: the Moon is in Aries
Wind up/wrap up all kinds of loose ends so that you can be ready to refresh and start anew with the New Moon/Solar Eclipse on Tuesday, April 29. Aries is a great sign for taking action.
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 - Taurus, until May 21
Mercury - Aries, until Apr. 23, then Taurus
Venus - Pisces, until May 3
Mars - Libra, until July 26
Jupiter - Cancer, until July 16
Saturn - Scorpio, until Sept. 18, 2015

(Taurus - May 16, 2018-Nov. 7, 2018)

Pallas - Virgo, until Aug. 12
Juno - Aries, until Apr. 22, then Taurus
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
