Weekly Horoscope for Jan. 7 – Jan. 13

Sunday: the Moon is in Virgo
Although Mercury in Sagittarius is square the Moon in Virgo, the Sun, Venus, Mars, Jupiter & Saturn are all in compatible relationships to the Moon. So except for the potential of a sticky written or verbal communication (Mercury/Moon), these links will likely bring some lively and useful energy to the atmosphere.

Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Libra
Beauty and balance, style and grace – Moon in Libra reminds us to put our best foot forward, as the saying goes. Presenting oneself with the best qualities showing up front will be quite beneficial. This does not mean using a false facade or anything that is not the sweet truth, but to preserve the honesty and integrity of all those involved.

Thursday: the Moon is in Scorpio
Sometimes we need some space & time to ourselves and Moon in Scorpio rules (is associated with) a retreat, being reclusive, etc. So even though it’s the middle of the week, it would be important to withdraw for a while if at all possible.

Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Sagittarius
One of the keywords that is associated with this sign is – dance – with yourself, with others, anytime, anywhere. Not only is this good for the physical body, but great for the mind as well. So treat yourself with whatever type of music gets you going.

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)
