(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Cancer
The planet Mercury is concluding another retrograde period (by the end of this week) and is currently in a sign (Libra) that is square in aspect to the Moon's sign (Cancer). There is the strong potential for communications to go awry and misunderstandings to occur, especially among family members or between love partners. This is due not only to the communication planet Mercury being in a slower motion right now but also because a square aspect can bring up problems and challenges. Of course now that you are aware of this particular energy at this particular time, things will probably be ok.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Leo
This sign is all about playing and having fun. But it is also about being creative in whatever way you want, whatever way brings you joy. There is nothing too silly or light-hearted that will seem ridiculous to Leo. Brighten up the middle part of your week with happiness, delight, gladness, and glee.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Virgo
This is a good weekend to sort out, clear out, and clean out just about every place in your environment where things are stored. This includes not just rooms, cubicles, or areas but also containers and furniture (such as filing cabinets). Use the discriminating energy of Virgo to help you make decisions about what to keep and what to release. And don't forget to purify the air where you live or work, wherever you are doing the sorting & organizing.
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.

Sun - Libra until Oct. 24

Ceres - Achievement and responsibility are prevalent.
Pallas - Expand your knowledge & skills with resources not considered before.
Juno - Love relationships that are based on fidelity are the focus.
Vesta - Seek out activities that relate to your basic belief system.
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
