Weekly Horoscope for Mar. 18 – 24
Looking for last week’s horoscope?
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Aries
The sign Aries represents fiery energy, initiating action, boldness & fearlessness. This is not the most comfortable travel point for the Moon (preference to the passive) to pass through. Even so, every now and then it is good to come out of a protective environment or situation and leap into something new, perhaps an idea you’ve had on the back burner for a while.
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Taurus
The highest placement of the Moon, its exaltation, is the sign Taurus. This is the kind of astrological energy that gets the job done, follows everything through to completion. The next step is a reward – something pleasurable, something indulgent.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Gemini
You might find yourself zipping around, fingers in every project, and keeping up a number of communication contacts going all at the same time. Gemini energy is very social, light to the touch, and quite flexible & versatile. Just don’t wear yourself out!
Saturday: the Moon is in Cancer
Cancer is the Moon’s home base sign, its dignity. There is a focus on taking care of the self and also nurturing others. This weekend it is important to honor yourself with care taking and to be helpful & giving to those close around you.
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: 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)
