(Missed last week's forecast? Here it is.)
Sunday: the Moon is in Leo
While keeping the information about Mercury retrograde in mind, schedule some specific time for having fun. Sometimes a person's fun meter can run a little (most likely a lot) low and needs to be tuned up, which is such an easy thing to do that we often forget to attend to it.
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday am: the Moon is in Virgo
Mercury (the ruler of Virgo) and Mars are both in signs (Gemini) that are square to the Moon. Mars by nature can be confrontational at times and Mercury is still in retrograde motion,** which can often be problematic. The main point is to keep your head down and fly under the radar, so to speak. A little tact can go a long way.
Wednesday pm, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Libra
Venus in Cancer is square the Moon. A square aspect is usually challenging at best. However the sweetness & pleasantness of Venus in general will modify this situation. Emotions attached to a special relationship could easily show up.
Saturday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Intense reactions to the discovery of a secret or two are a possibility. The pendulum seems to want to swing all the way in one direction or the other. Moderation might be a difficult value to instill this weekend.
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
