Friday (New Moon) (Black Moon), Saturday: the Moon is in Virgo
Ok,the New Moon is in Virgo and this is the 2nd New Moon in this calendar month, which makes it what in astrology terms is called a Black Moon. More New Moon energy is available during this time, so focus on the area of your life that you would like to refresh or renew. Virgo reminds us to clarify matters, so make sure you do that first. Additionally, if you check the Planet Positions list below, you will see that by the end of this month, all of the personal planets (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus & Mars) will be aligned together in Virgo. This could be a delightful New Moon with information & ideas just waiting to be selected.
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)
