Weekly Horoscope for Sept. 26-Oct. 2

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday am: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury, the ruler of the sign Gemini, is retrograde* (see info at the bottom of this page) therefore, it’s good to exercise patience in all communications, written and verbal. With Mercury being in Libra, a sign that is trine (an aspect that pleasantly connects Gemini and Libra), things will likely be a little more amenable than in the usual retrograde.
Tuesday pm, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Cancer
Mercury and Mars are both in Libra, which is a sign that is square the sign Cancer (the Moon’s current location) on the astrological wheel. Mercury is retrograde and Mars can be confrontational. A square aspect is usually problematic. All of these add up to an uncomfortable mid-section of this week. Choose your words and actions carefully.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Leo
Here we are in the playful sign of Leo again. Find fun things to do and bring enjoyment into situations you encounter. Everyone likes to smile and laugh, yourself included! And remember, laughter is a great stress reducer.
When reading this weekly horoscope, 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, if 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! It is also 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: Weekly horoscope time frames 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).
∗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 including Direct & In Station)
**Solar Eclipse/A = Annular, which is an eclipse that is almost a Total Eclipse but will show a narrow ring of light surrounding the New Moon.
