(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Two asteroids, Ceres & Vesta, are conjunct (in the same sign as) the Moon right now. Ceres is similar to the Moon in that it is supportive and nurturing. Vesta is in charge of our passions - what we really and truly enjoy and can be dedicated/devoted to. Sagittarius likes to take us to higher levels of thinking, so explore what is exceptionally important in your life or something in that vein that you know will be good for you and therefore you would like to include in your life.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday am: the Moon is in Capricorn
Mars is now in Capricorn and will add some strong vibrations to the atmosphere. This could bring confrontations between two people who both want to be in charge, or it could give some extra oomph towards getting a job done. If it's the latter that shows up in your realm, the Moon suggests to take advantage of the energy and get those tasks checked off the list.
Thursday pm, Friday, Saturday am: the Moon is in Aquarius
Four planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus, Saturn) & one asteroid (Pallas) are square the Moon (Scorpio is square Aquarius); one planet (Jupiter) & one asteroid (Juno) are opposite the Moon (Leo is opposite Aquarius). The bottom line is that there is a whole lot of astrological energy swirling around the often eccentric or unique Aquarius energy going on. This situation could be quite invigorating or it could be very challenging. Since Aquarius is the defining factor and one never really knows for sure (or can even come close with a guess), just be ready to go with the flow and whatever happens.
Saturday pm: the Moon is in Pisces
The Moon in Pisces indicates that this weekend would be best spent in quiet activities or in pleasant escapes from the outside world. It is advisable not to tackle anything big or potentially overwhelming. Leave that for another Moon sign, say Aries for example.
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.

Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres - Nurture yourself with the freedom to explore.
Pallas - Use your skills/tools to drive straight through to the core of any issue.
Juno - Fun and romance are in the atmosphere.
Vesta - Your own beliefs and those of others are highlighted.
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
