(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury is now moving along quite nicely in regular motion (no longer retrograde) in the sign Aquarius, the sign ruled by the planet Uranus, which is the higher octave of the planet Mercury, the ruler of the sign Gemini. This statement is an example of Gemini energy - a lot of information being absorbed and then passed around. The Moon in Gemini sometimes simply sits and listens to what all is being said and then enters a conversation that is appealing.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Cancer
Jupiter in Cancer is conjunct the Moon and Mars in Libra is square the Moon. Jupiter and Mars are still square each other (see last week's forecast). Then Saturn joins the group with a trine aspect to the Moon. The energy of the 'square' aspects (connections) indicate that some things could be challenging and some things could be invigorating. 'Conjunctions' can go in any direction, depending on the planet and sign involved. Jupiter is usually a very upbeat, positive sign and its location in Cancer means that it encourages optimism no matter what the situation may be. A 'trine' aspect is similar to the harmonious and inspiring energy associated with a 'sextile' aspect, only it is more interested in making things very, very easy. Bottom line - a really mixed bag of astrological energy going around.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Leo
Saturn in Scorpio is square the Moon and Mercury & Venus in Aquarius are opposite the Moon. The Moon and Mars are now in a sextile aspect. There may be some emotions ruling the atmosphere right now due to a Full Moon coming up on Sunday.
Saturday: the Moon is in Virgo
This sign is, in addition to Gemini, is also associated with information - the gathering thereof and then the sorting, categorizing, and organizing of such. Both signs are wordsmiths and enjoy what words are used together and how. So this is another weekend of making use of the information that is available.
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 - Pisces, until Mar. 21
Mercury - Aquarius, until Mar. 18

(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 - Self-acceptance, sensitivity to others, and balanced relationships are highlighted.
Pallas - Consider things in their simplest form, in their basic essence rather than shrouded in all that is going on around them.
Juno - Independence and a sense of freedom or autonomy may be necessary in close partnerships, business or personal.
Vesta - Don't give away your own needs & desires; participate in reciprocal situations.
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
