Weekly Horoscope for Jan. 6-12

Sunday (New Moon/Solar Eclipse): the Moon is in Capricorn
There’s kind of a get-down-to-business flavor to this weekend, so sharpen up your organizational skills and zip through what has to be accomplished on your to-do list. Starting with a ‘clean slate’ is a good use of the eclipse energy. Saturn & Pluto in Capricorn (along with the Moon) are excellent planets to have around to accomplish things and to clear out what is no longer required.

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Aquarius
Explore the out-of-the-ordinary; push a limit or two and see what happens. Doesn’t have to be a big deal, little steps into the unknown are just fine.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Pisces
Take it easy for a couple of days. Surround yourself with things (or people) that are soft and soothing.

Saturday: the Moon is in Aries
This weekend is similar to last weekend in that it may be filled with plenty of action/activity of some kind.

In reading this weekly horoscope, 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: Weekly horoscope time frames 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)
