(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday, Monday (New Moon): the Moon is in Aquarius
A New Moon is always a time to refresh your life in some way. The house in your astrology chart that has Aquarius on the cusp (beginning edge) indicates the area of your life that you might want to celebrate now. If you don't have this information, then look instead to how you can make some unique changes or how you can take yourself in a distinctive direction.
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Pisces
Saturn in Sagittarius is square the Moon in Pisces but unlike a lot of square aspects (connections), this one will likely not be as contentious as it potentially could be because the Moon & Saturn often have a good relationship since they represent the mother (Moon) and father (Saturn) of the astrological wheel. If you need help or advice this week, seek it from the elders in your sphere.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Aries
Mercury & Venus, both in Capricorn, are square the Moon in Aries. This can present challenges or difficulties in communication or financial matters. Take care not to become embroiled in a confrontation with someone or overrun with anger toward yourself.
Saturday: the Moon is in Taurus
Take your time this weekend if you are considering the purchase of any large-ticket items. It might be better to indulge yourself with some little luxuries that you've had your eye on for quite a while. If you are not in a buying mood, then treat yourself to a long, wonderful nap.
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: 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
