For the Week of March 26 through April 1
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Pisces
Spending some time in silent reflection and meditation would be good for this weekend. A wonderful way to recharge your batteries is to leave your daily routine behind and soak up some transcendental rays.
Tuesday (New Moon), Wednesday: the Moon is in Aries
A fresh start is always associated with a New Moon and especially one in Aries, the sign that rules (is associated with) new/renewed beginnings. Mercury (communication) and Venus (love) are also in this sign right now, so these two areas of your life might be a good place to think about and act upon.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Taurus
While you are in this time of refreshing something, look at your finances & possessions closely and discern how well all of that is working out for you. Mars (action) in Taurus is providing astrological energy for addressing these things.
Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury will be going retrograde (see bottom of this page) at the end of next week; if you have a major communication project to handle or a big decision to make, consider doing so before next Saturday.
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)
