For the Week of April 16 through 22
Sunday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
There may seem to be a need for freedom or independence in the area of your life that is reflected in the section of your chart (house) that has Sag on the cusp (beginning edge). This requirement will likely be the most satisfied by expanding your awareness and adding to your knowledge in that area.
Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Capricorn
Boundaries and limits come under the rulership of (associated with) Capricorn. They may be set against you at the beginning of this week, or perhaps you will need to actually set them in place yourself when it comes to a particular situation.
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday: the Moon is in Aquarius
An original and inventive atmosphere will likely permeate a number of things during the middle & towards the end of this week. If a flash of genius insight comes through your brain, be sure to share it. This insight may also come through to you via your intuition, so be sure to embrace that form of information.
Saturday: the Moon is in Pisces
Imagination and intuition are also present when the Moon is in Pisces. It’s in a quieter and more subtle form than what was possible when the Moon was in Aquarius, although it’s just as powerful, so be sure to take note of what shows up.
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)
