(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday: the Moon is in Cancer
Emotional sensitivity is one of the key phrases that describes Cancer. Someone's emotions, or perhaps your own, could do with some kind nurturing right now.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Leo
Leo often has difficulty accepting defeats, no matter how small, because the natural pride that is inherent with this sign feels wounded very easily. While Leo is usually a cheerful upbeat energy in the atmosphere, sometimes encouragement from another person is needed. Observe whom in your environment that might be and lavish a little sincere praise (re: something real, not artificial) in their direction. Things like that spread out in waves and affect even the cosmos (just like when a butterfly moves its wings).
Wednesday, Thursday (Full Moon), Friday: the Moon is in Virgo
There are times when Moon in Virgo can be more than a little nit-picky, in fact it can actually be down right critical. This is especially true about a week before a Full Moon in this sign and often comes from a person who has a South Node in Virgo. The best thing to do is to take the high road and implement a couple of descriptors about the positive side of Virgo - clarity in mental health and purity in physical health. (p.s. - a south node in your natal chart tells a lot about what patterns have been brought into your current life from your past lives)
Saturday: the Moon is in Libra
Interactions and relationships are likely to run smoothly when the Moon is in Libra. If they don't, it's because something is out of balance or has gone to excess. Mediation followed by compromise and agreed-upon moderation would be quite beneficial.
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 - Fun and romance are in the atmosphere.
Vesta - Social or political ideas & ideals may become important to you.
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
