(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday am: the Moon is in Pisces
One of the keywords associated with the sign Pisces is 'subtle' and this is a word that the Moon likes too. Pisces is a water sign; the planets Jupiter & Saturn are also in water signs (Cancer & Scorpio, respectively) and this can indicate a whole lot of emotions (which come under the umbrella of the Moon and water signs) floating around. Therefore the application of subtle and other terms such as discreet, unassuming, and unobtrusive to language and actions will probably be appreciated.
Tuesday pm, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Aries
Aries isn't the easiest sign for the Moon to experience because this sign is all about action, feats, exploits, and competition. It likes to leave thoughts & emotions, etc. for others to deal with. The Moon is a quieter planet, so it might be a little tricky to keep things in balance during the middle of this week (especially since two personal planets - Venus & Mars - are square, which means in a challenging location, to the Moon in Aries).
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Taurus
Firm and solid (often perceived as dependable) are two of the descriptors attached to the sign Taurus. Unmoving and unyielding (sometimes seen as stubborn) are two words that also can be attached to this sign. Because the Moon is considered to be 'exalted' or in its highest power in Taurus, the more positive adjectives will probably be at work here.
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 .
It is 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.

(Chiron usually stays in one sign for about a little over two years, very similar to Saturn's travels. However this time it is making an extended visit to a sign.)
Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres - Self-acceptance, sensitivity to others, and balanced relationships are highlighted.
Pallas - Consider things in their simplest form, in their basic essence rather than shrouded in all that is going on around them.
Juno - Expect the unexpected re: business or romantic relationships.
Vesta - Don't give away your own needs & desires; participate in reciprocal situations.
Chiron - Transcend wounds and negativity through compassion.
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
