(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Virgo
Virgo is great for sorting out details and making lists. This sign enjoys information for its practical application and will gladly pass it along in that context, even though sometimes the information is not received well because the communication can be perceived as criticism.
Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Libra
Libra is always a tricky sign to write about because while in most cases the words charming, pleasant, and amiable etc. apply, when it comes to forecasts this is often not the case at all. The best thing to do is to place your bets on something likable and agreeable and then to not be surprised if something otherwise takes place.
Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Saturn is conjunct (in the same sign as) the Moon right now and this could possibly bring up some challenging situations, mostly because that can happen in the days before a Full Moon and this one is a Lunar Eclipse as well - meaning that the energy is amplified, plus Scorpio is an intense astrological sign. On the other hand, Saturn & the Moon as planets by themselves without other things going on such as what was just mentioned, are usually quite compatible since they are the father & mother of the astrological wheel.
Saturday (Full Moon/Lunar Eclipse): the Moon is in Sagittarius
Celebrate diversity, beliefs other than your own, and higher levels of knowledge this weekend. That works for one plane of existence; now for the everyday world - make your mind or body (or both) as active as possible, as long as the activities are also enjoyable.
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 - Taurus, until May 21, then Gemini
Mercury - Gemini, until May 31
Venus - Gemini, until June 3
Mars - Taurus, until May 31
Jupiter - Gemini, until June 26
Saturn - Scorpio, until Sept. 18, 2015
(Sagittarius - Dec. 24, 2014-June 14, 2015)
Uranus - Aries, until Mar. 6, 2019
(Taurus - May 16, 2018-Nov. 7, 2018)
Neptune - Pisces, until Mar. 30, 2025
Pluto - Capricorn, until Nov. 20, 2024
Current Asteroid Positions:
Ceres - Cancer, until June 23
Pallas - Taurus, until May 30
Juno - Aquarius, until Jan. 1, 2014
Vesta - Cancer, until July 7
Chiron - Pisces, until Apr. 22, 2018
(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 - Use all your senses in order to fully perceive a situation.
Juno - Expect the unexpected re: business and 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
