(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday: the Moon is in Pisces
It would be wonderful if you could spend today in a quiet manner, keeping the atmosphere soft and melodic. Get some extra rest if you can.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Aries
There will be a New Moon coming up one week from now. It's always good to wind up projects as much as possible in the time between a Full Moon and a New Moon. Aries energy is beneficial for that because it is a highly active sign, so you may notice that things can be wrapped up more quickly than you had first anticipated. Since the New Moon will be in the sign Cancer, this pertains especially to home and garden endeavors because those areas are ruled (associated with) by Cancer and can be stimulated by the sign Aries which is a square aspect (location relationship) to Cancer.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Taurus
It may feel like something is taking a long time; however, don't be surprised if all at once things fall into place and you find that your persistent effort has paid off.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
Lots of social contacts, lots of social interaction, plenty of lively activities - that pretty much characterizes the astrological energy for the end of this week. So have fun and enjoy!
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 .

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
