Weekly Horoscope for May 13 – May 19
Sunday am: the Moon is in Aries
There’s a sense of super-charged competition in the air. Some situations may appeal to you and others may not. In order to avoid confrontations, make your selections wisely.
Sunday pm, Monday, Tuesday (New Moon): the Moon is in Taurus
If something seems to be stuck and in no way seems to be moving, no matter what, then perhaps the energy of this New Moon will highlight the situation and help things along.
Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Gemini
Share a thought, an idea, or some information with your social contacts. Also be ready to receive some of the same. You might want to jot some of the things down.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Cancer
Food and gardening are two items that fall under the rulership of Cancer (associated with this sign). Consider one of your gastronomic delights for 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 .

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)
