(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday am: the Moon is in Aries
The remainder of this weekend and the beginning of the week will be spent pursuing lively, and perhaps spontaneous, activities.
Monday pm, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Taurus
The sign Taurus rules (is associated with or in charge of) all the five senses. The Moon is exalted (at its highest power) is this same sign. What this means is that your senses, or at least a couple of them, will likely be the focus, along with your warmest feelings, during the middle of this week so enjoy!
Thursday, Friday, Saturday am: the Moon is in Gemini
Curiosity could take over now. You could feel the need to gather or absorb some information. On the other hand, you may find that communication is your plan. Or perhaps reading for fun and enjoyment. Whatever form your mental energy takes, keep things light and airy.
Saturday pm : the Moon is in Cancer
One of the things Cancer rules is nourishment - and especially food that is warm, soothing, and a little heavy so that it feels comforting as it goes down.
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
