For the Week of June 18 thru June 24

Sunday, Monday: the Moon is in Aries
Pallas (see below) is the asteroid that rules skills and resources. It is currently in Aries along with the Moon. Is there anything in this area of your life that could use a little updating?

Tuesday, Wednesday: the Moon is in Taurus
Taurus rules (is associated with) indulging yourself by purchasing a sumptuous material item that is practical at the same time.

Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Gemini
Putting thoughts into some kind of easily managed and accessed order is a good use of Moon in Gemini energy right before a New Moon.

Saturday (New Moon): the Moon is in Cancer
Mercury & Mars are in this same sign (conjunct the Moon) and Jupiter is in a sign (Libra) that is square the Moon in Cancer – all three of which combine to make this an unusually active New Moon, both physically and mentally. Spend this weekend doing something you really like to do. Also, you might want to consider focusing your energy on the area of your life that is included in the house of your astrology chart that has Cancer on the cusp (beginning edge).

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)
