(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday (New Moon): the Moon is in Libra
This is a New Moon filled with sweetness and harmony, a melody in the stars. It's a good time to reflect this Libra Moon in your own persona by putting the focus on agreement, accord, and synchrony.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Whatever house (section) in your chart has Scorpio on the cusp (beginning edge) is where you probably have to peel away layers to gain a further understanding. Since the Moon travels through all twelve signs once per month, this will likely come up on a regular basis so use your intuition and inner strength to clarify, a little at a time perhaps, something that seems to have been difficult or problematic in the area of your life represented by that particular house.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Venus & Mars (both in Virgo) are square the Moon, an aspect (connection) that is usually challenging. However these two planets, conjunct each other, fit in nicely with some energy that makes this weekend seem very sprightly and active. Use this lively astrological situation to do things that are pleasing, playful, & full of zip and most of all, since the planet Jupiter is in Virgo as well, awareness & fulfillment. Yes, Saturn is in the same sign as the Moon, but the connection between these two planets is like a solid marriage - loyal and supportive.
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.

Pallas - Expand your knowledge & skills with resources not considered before.
Juno - Love relationships that are based on fidelity are the focus.
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
