(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Something will likely seem more complex than usual during this Full Moon time. Take a deep breath and go through things one step at a time; you will probably find the bottom line or the answer before you know it.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Mars & Saturn are both conjunct (in the same sign as) the Moon and this can make things feel problematic or challenging. If you find that you are up against obstacles, perhaps an older person or one who has had more experience in the area can be helpful.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Remind yourself to take on only as much responsibility as you can honestly handle. And, before you take on anything, be sure to ask yourself if it's something that you really need to consider or is it something that belongs on someone else's to-do list.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Shake up some boundaries and get yourself out of a routine for a little while. New ideas could occur to you and new attitudes might be waiting for your perusal. It's always interesting to change things up a bit.
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.

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
