For the Week of Sept. 17 – Sept. 23
Sunday: the Moon is in Leo
For anyone born with prominent Leo in their chart – Leo rising, Leo moon, & Leo sun in particular – the recent New Moon/Total Solar Eclipse in Leo has significant energy that will remain in the atmosphere for about six months. The message is to lighten your load, have more fun, and above all to retain your dignity. This especially applies to you when the Moon travels through the sign Leo; and it applies to everyone to some degree when the Moon is in Leo, so get out your dancing shoes.
Monday, Tuesday, very early Wednesday (New Moon): the Moon is in Virgo
Whenever the Moon is in the sign Virgo, and especially when it’s a New Moon in Virgo, it will be quite beneficial to sort through, clear out, and reorganize an area in your home or at work that will make room for something new to come in.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Libra
Be sure to ask for help when you need it. And be aware of when people ask you for help when they really don’t need it at all. It’s more than ok to disappoint them sometimes. (One of the “down” sides of the sign Libra is a tendency to dependency.)
Saturday: the Moon is in Scorpio
One of the keywords for Scorpio is passion (this is very similar to the asteroid Vesta – see below). Clarify what you are really and truly passionate about and then pursue it wherever & whenever you can.
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)
