Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Aquarius
A big breath of fresh air – Aquarius shakes things up a little bit, Mercury is no longer retrograde or in-station, and Mars has moved forward. This could be a great beginning to the week!
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Pisces
Take it easy during the middle of this week. Use the rosy, soft energy of this sign to smooth the way for yourself and anyone around you. Envision yourself as the Poet Laurette of your surroundings.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Aries
Now it’s time to focus on your physical self, a little at a time until you feel quite comfortable to stretch (attitude and body) yourself even more.
Saturday: the Moon is in Taurus
This weekend the Moon is in its exaltation, its highest power. On the mundane level, review your finances. On a higher level, enjoy a renewed spiritual sense of Nature.
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.

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres – this asteroid is associated with the sign Virgo and the task of giving yourself lots of care as well as nurturing others. It would be quite helpful to remind yourself to avoid burnout and to help only people who are genuinely receptive.
Pallas – this asteroid rules wisdom & purity of action in your vocation. While it is in Cancer, show yourself some extra self-care and nurturing in this area.
Juno – disagreements and confrontations with partners (love partners, business partners, etc.) are quite possible.
Vesta – consider your dream, your lifetime passion, with a soft devotion that goes on and on and…..
Chiron – release pent-up anger; chart a new course for yourself.
Note: Weekly horoscope 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).
∗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 (resumes its regular speed) 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)
*Venus Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Relationships, especially love relationships, will likely be more in the background than upfront. Take it easy with expressed feelings of that nature and agree to address any concerns after Venus goes Direct. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Venus when appropriate.)
*Mars Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Decisions and actions will be more difficult to implement. Avoid confrontations. Be careful about cuts & burns. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Mars when appropriate.)
**Solar Eclipse/A = Annular, which is an eclipse that is almost a Total Eclipse but will show a narrow ring of light surrounding the New Moon.
**Partial Lunar Eclipse – the Full Moon is not completely covered.
**Total Solar Eclipse – when it appears that the Sun is completely covered.
**Total Lunar Eclipse – when the Moon appears to be completely covered.
