(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Note: Due to technical issues, Moonscopes couldn't be posted last week and is a day late this week. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Sunday: the Moon is in Virgo
If there are lists of things hanging around that need to be done, now is a good time to take care of them. The sign Virgo is in charge of (rules) making lists or checking items off a list.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday am: the Moon is in Libra
Smooth out rough edges and apply nice coats of empathy & understanding to any situation that seems to be less than its usual perky self.
Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Saturn is going to leave this sign on Dec. 24 and will not return to take care of any residue until next June. There could be a serious amount of stuff to do and tasks to complete between now and the 24th of this month.
Saturday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
Play time, play time, play time - this sign likes to be free to fool around, have fun, and participate in all kinds of amusements. So even though there will likely be much to look after now, this is a reminder to remember the kid inside of yourself.
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.

Pallas - Use your skills/tools to drive straight through to the core of any issue.
Juno - Fun and romance are in the atmosphere.
Vesta - Your own beliefs and those of others are highlighted.
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
