Weekly Horoscope for Mar. 10-16
Looking for the previous weekly horoscope?
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday am: the Moon is in Taurus
Mars is in Taurus, conjunct the Moon and Venus is in Aquarius, square the Moon. Both of these aspects (connections between planets) can often be quite “iffy” so it would be good to plug into the upbeat side of the Moon’s location in Taurus, its exalted status, meaning at its highest power.
Tuesday pm, Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Gemini
Mercury, which is currently retrograde*, in Pisces is also square the Moon. A retrograde Mercury can bring up communication problems and so can an aspect of Mercury square the Moon. Be carefully aware of what you write and say, and also receive communication from others with a tempered attitude.
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Cancer
Now the Moon shifts signs again and this time Mercury, Mars, & Saturn are all in a beneficial aspect to it while it is also in its home sign (dignity) of Cancer. Enjoy some comfort food and the soothing company of family or friends.
When 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 .
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: 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)
