(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday am: the Moon is in Taurus
It would be a good idea to make today and tomorrow calm and soothing; extra rest is indicated. Activities should be a little indulgent and food should be more than a little sumptuous. Don't plan on doing anything quickly, just take it easy and make everything as relaxing as possible. This is the Moon's exalted sign and it loves hanging out here, so contemplate doing the same - simply hanging out.
Monday pm, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Gemini
The asteroid Juno (partnerships) is in the same sign as the moon. Gemini rules (is associated with) communication and when coupled with Juno, indicates conversation with a business or personal partner (such as a love interest) will be beneficial.
Thursday, Friday, Saturday am: the Moon is in Cancer
Mercury & Venus are in the same sign as the Moon (which is in its home base sign) right before the New Moon that is coming up. The time right before a new moon is best spent quietly and all three of these planets in Cancer suggest a tranquil, pleasant time at home with family could fit into this parameter.
Saturday pm (New Moon): the Moon is in Leo
This New Moon sets the tone for a fun, playful, lighthearted, and enjoyable month (until the next new moon, when the focus changes). All of these adjectives come under the rulership of the sign Leo and will permeate the atmosphere for a while.
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 - Cancer, until July 23, then Leo
Mercury - Cancer, until Aug. 1

(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 - Open communication between partners (business or love relationship) is very important.
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
