(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Virgo
Everything you do on a daily basis, all the little details and the lists you make to keep them manageable, plus the ability to simplify such things - fall under the rulership (the umbrella of influence) of the sign Virgo. Since this sign also rules (is in charge of) your health, it's a good idea to take advantage of this lunar energy and clarify what is really important for now and what can be added to the To Do Later list.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday am: the Moon is in Libra
When the Moon is in Libra, relationships come to the forefront - specifically business partnerships or love partnerships. It's always good to do a review of your situation if you are in a close connection with another person. Is anything out of balance? Is one person depending on or clinging to you? Or are you in that position yourself? Do you define yourself by how much you are needed or how much you do for your significant other? There are probably some attitudes/behaviors on both sides that could be thought about.
Thursday pm (New Moon/Solar Eclipse), Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Scorpio
A retreat into private contemplation is an excellent way to welcome this New Moon in Scorpio, the sign that rules extremes from one side to the other and thusly includes an advocate to withdrawal from the outer world. This especially applies at the time of a New Moon whose energy is heightened by a Solar Eclipse. Scorpio is a very personal and emotional sign, so consider releasing those items that come up in your private introspection that are not compatible with the "core you", the you that is the most real.
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.

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
