(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday (*v/c) : the Moon is in Cancer
Relax a little (or a lot if needed) and give yourself and those around you some comforting self-care this weekend.
Monday, Tuesday(*v/c), Wednesday a.m.: the Moon is in Leo
Admiration and appreciation are two things that Leo energy likes to see. Giving someone a little well-deserved praise will lift the atmosphere and go a long way towards supporting any situation.
Wednesday p.m., Thursday (New Moon) (Solar Eclipse), Friday: the Moon is in Virgo
The focus during this New Moon and Solar Eclipse time is your health - both physical and mental. Sometimes we can get stuck on re-living the past and allowing those shadows to become so critical of our thoughts & actions that we can't seem to do anything. This can be so wearing on our bodies and our minds. Refresh your mind and release the past so that you can move forward.
Saturday (*v/c): the Moon is in Libra
People - relationships of all kinds and easy-going social interactions - consider this for your Libra weekend.
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 here
