(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Sometimes Scorpio gets to be quite serious and you may have noticed this more than ever since Saturn, the serious planet, has been traveling in Scorpio for a while and thereby is conjunct the Moon when it goes through this sign. A conjunction aspect depends on what planets are involved. Here we have the Moon, whose charges include our safety and security. Saturn is in charge of something similar - our protection. So during a Moon in Scorpio time, while Saturn is still in Scorpio (see list below), there are astrological energies that are keeping us safe from something that we may not even realize is a risk, threat, or danger.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
The signs Sagittarius & Aquarius share a trait that comes up when the Moon visits these locations. There is a desire and need to get away from things for a while, to break out of routines and expectations, to travel the expanded road of awareness and brighten up your philosophies/beliefs. If this is not possible, at least consider taking some time for yourself and explore via books, etc.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Authority figures are quite noticeable right now and you may be required to indicate your level of respect and attention to said people. This is not a negative situation; all of us can learn from someone who has expertise in a particular area. This information can boost your reputation, so take in as much as you can and then adjust it to your own circumstances.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
This transit of the Moon relates of course to what we saw for Monday & Tuesday, and it also relates to Wednesday & Thursday. Aquarius rules (is in charge of) our peers and also groups we are interested in. It is important to associate with people who in some way raise our level of knowledge and experience, people who encourage us to break through perceived boundaries and to venture into the unknown.
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
