(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday: the Moon is in Aquarius
You can practice for the upcoming Blue Moon, which will be in Aquarius, by being ready for any surprise or astonishment. Sometimes these are fun and positive, other times they can be frustrating and not so positive. Don't worry about things now, just make sure you have an open mind for then.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Pisces
There will be a Blue Moon at the end of this month that may require a lot of attention, so relax and have a little quiet time now. Great personal care also falls under the umbrella of what is ruled by this sign. So even though it's the beginning of a work week, consider putting these two ideas in place at this time.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Aries
So much to handle, perhaps you (and I for pete's sake) should have a temporary assistant. In lieu of that situation, just charge right through what you can and toss the other to the side for later.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Taurus
This is one of the Moon's most likeable places to be because Taurus is the sign of its highest power. It can bask in its glory and spread all kinds of goodness to everything and everyone else. Consider doing what the Moon is doing and enjoy the good vibes everywhere.
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.)

Ceres - Achievement and responsibility are prevalent.
Pallas - Expand your knowledge & skills with resources not considered before.
Juno - Examine what is on your to-do list that pertains to your personal care.
Vesta - Seek out activities that relate to your basic belief system.
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
