(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday: the Moon is in Virgo
Mars, Jupiter, and the asteroid Pallas are in Gemini, which is square (a challenging aspect/connection) to the Moon this weekend. It would probably be wise to avoid potential confrontations (Mars, Pallas) and exaggerations (Jupiter) and to draw your own conclusions after sifting through things (Virgo).
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Libra
Relationship concerns or responsibilities could be on the front burner, which means that that is where your attention will be and where you will expend your energy. The planet Venus, the ruler of the sign Libra, is in Cancer - a square aspect (see above) to the Moon. However, Venus rules sweet, pleasant, and amiable things so this particular 'square' will likely be easier to have around than the one on Sunday.
Wednesday, Thursday : the Moon is in Scorpio
Saturn in Scorpio is currently conjunct, an aspect that means in the same sign as, the Moon. A 'conjunction' can be cooperative and easy but on the other hand it can be somewhat difficult. Since the sign Scorpio rules things that are hidden, we will have to play it by ear as they say. This means addressing one thing at a time and being aware that things can change from what we think is going to appear.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Mars & Jupiter in Gemini are opposite the Moon in Sag right now. An 'opposition' aspect is sometimes similar to a conjunction in that it can be very helpful or it can pose a hindrance. Mars can produce potential trouble spots while Jupiter enjoys being a benefactor. So again we have a mixed bag of astro energy and have to simply roll along with whatever comes up.
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.
Current Planet Positions:
Sun - Gemini, until June 21, then Cancer

(Chiron usually stays in one sign for about a little over two years, very similar to Saturn's travels. However this time it is making an extended visit to a sign.)
Current Asteroid Transits:
Ceres - Take good care of yourself - extra care may be required to balance things out.
Pallas - Enjoy your resources of information and contacts with people.
Juno - Expect the unexpected re: business or romantic relationships.
Vesta - Allow yourself creative free rein and inspiration.
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
