Sunday: the Moon is in Pisces
Take some time this weekend to immerse yourself in the softer side of life. Take a nap or two, paint with watercolors, read poetry, listen to soothing music.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Aries
Sometimes things get all out of sorts during the time before a Full Moon. The Moon in the sign Aries at this same time can bring forth frustrations, irritations, and confrontations. Do your best to remain calm and objective.
Thursday (Full Moon – late Wednesday), Friday: the Moon is in Taurus
The Full Moon in Taurus has an emphasis on money, how it is earned and how it is spent. This area of your life could use a review or perhaps even an overhaul. It will be worth your time & effort. The Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Jupiter are all in Scorpio, which is square (challenges/obstacles) the Moon in Taurus. So, this might seem like an overwhelming job at first but as you work through things, they will easily fall into place.
Saturday: the Moon is in Gemini
Treat yourself to something light and airy this weekend. A movie, a book, a coffee group for example. Nothing serious please.
In 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)
