(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday am: the Moon is in Leo
Do what you like, what gives you joy when the Moon is in Leo because it's fun time! Amuse yourself with effortless, lighthearted, playful things. Entertainment is the order of the day.
Sunday pm, Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Virgo
Use the Venus in Virgo energy combined with the Moon's location to clarify your possessions - what to keep and why, what can be donated so that someone else can benefit, and what has simply run its course and needs to be released. Virgo is a discriminating sign that is very helpful when it comes to choices or decisions. Since Venus is connected to how you adorn yourself, this clarifying process will likely involve articles of clothing, etc.
Wednesday (New Moon), Thursday, Friday am: the Moon is in Libra
When the Moon is in Libra, and especially when this is a New Moon (which will come only once a year in this sign), it's time to address the pleasant areas of your life and see if you need to adjust them in any way to make things even more delightful. If there are things or situations that are not amiable or agreeable, then of course it's time to see what can be done regarding them. A New Moon is always a fresh or refreshed start, so keep this in mind while you are giving your attention to whatever areas of your life you choose to address.
Friday pm, Saturday: 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.
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
