Sunday: the Moon is in Aries
Mars in Cancer is square the Moon in Aries. Mars in a square aspect usually tends to be confrontational and frustrating. Aries can go the same way if things get out of balance. Just be careful.
Monday, Tuesday (New Moon), Wednesday: the Moon is in Taurus
The best way to celebrate this New Moon is to be calm and at ease no matter what may attempt to grab your attention.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury and Venus, both in Gemini, are conjunct the Moon in Gemini now. Contact others and enjoy pleasant conversations.
Saturday: the Moon is in Cancer
This will likely be a weekend focused on family, food, gardening, or home projects.
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! It is also 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: 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)
