Weekly Horoscope for Jan. 17-23

Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?

Sunday: the Moon is in Pisces
Spend some sweet quiet time with your imagination (Pisces) this weekend. Let yourself float along with the vibes that come your way.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Aries
Mercury retrograde* is coming up next week, so it would be a good idea to jump right into things (Aries) at the beginning of this week and get as much settled/completed as possible.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Taurus
Consider your finances (Taurus) and make any adjustments that are needed. It would be wise to make any large purchases either now or after Mercury finishes its retrograde time.

Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
Gemini is a very social sign and this weekend could turn out to have a significant social component (if you choose of course). 

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!

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)
