For the Week of Oct. 22 – Oct. 28
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Expansion of the self through learning, observation, or hands-on interaction is right up the alley for Sagittarius. Mental and physical activity will be more than suitable for the beginning of this week. And it’s important to have a balance of the mental & physical so that one part of yourself doesn’t become out of proportion to anything else.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Capricorn is associated with working hard and getting the job done. It is also associated with delegating. It’s wise to know when the responsibility (another Capricorn word) is yours and when it belongs to someone else. So sort through what needs to be accomplished (Capricorn word) and who is the right person for each task.
Saturday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Do something completely different this weekend. Tweak your brain in an unusual direction. Shake up your schedule or perhaps have no schedule at all and see what happens. The sign Aquarius rules (is connected to) things that are odd, unique, innovative, progressive, unconventional, etc. So enjoy some time off from your regular routine!
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 .

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)
