(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Things can go to extremes when the sign Scorpio is present - the highest of highs and the lowest of lows are possible and will feel very personal. Scorpio challenges us to learn how to deal with extremes of any type and how to use this powerful energy to our advantage without hurting others.
Tuesday, Wednesday (*v/c - evening): the Moon is in Sagittarius
Jupiter, the planetary ruler of the sign Sagittarius, is in Leo which is a sign that is very compatible with Sag. What this means is that there is an abundance of expansive energy running around during the middle of part of this week. Mercury in Libra & Venus in Leo are in a great spot too and will add ease of communication as well as pleasant circumstances.
Thursday, Friday (*v/c - evening): the Moon is in Capricorn
A serious note comes into play for a couple of days now with the get-down-to-business sign Capricorn present. So, take time to accomplish some things on your lists at home or work and then make sure to feel good about the resulting achievements.
Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Change is standing in the wings waiting to make a big splash. However, Saturn & Mars are both in Scorpio which is a sign that is square to Aquarius. This indicates the potential for some unusual (Aquarius) challenges (square/Saturn/Mars) this weekend.
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
