Weekly Horoscope for May 26-June 1

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Pisces
Both water and communication seem to be highlighted during the first part of this week. Mars, with its rather aggressive energy, is in Cancer which is a sign that is trine (in the same element as) the Moon in Pisces. Even though a trine aspect is usually very easy, when Mars is involved you want to be careful. This time it has to do with water. Mercury, the communication planet, is in Gemini, the communication sign. However, Gemini is a sign that is square Pisces, so be aware that some problems in communication could arise.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Aries
Here we have Mars again – this time square the Moon in Aries. There will likely be a situation where someone digs in their heels and doesn’t want to budge from their position. This obstacle (a square aspect) can be resolved, probably, but not without considerable work on both sides.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Taurus
What a refreshing change – Venus, the planet that rules all kinds of pleasant things, is conjunct (in the same sign as) the Moon. And Taurus is the sign of the Moon’s exaltation (highest power). Enjoy!
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, 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: 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).
▪ 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)
