Weekly Horoscope for July 7-13

Sunday, Monday, Tuesday: the Moon is in Leo
The planet Mercury, which rules communication, is also in Leo and this indicates that perhaps these three days will be  simply filled with contacts of any or all kinds. The planet Venus is headed towards Leo, with Mercury and the Moon, which indicates that probably these communiques will be social and quite positive.

Wednesday, Thursday: the Moon is in Virgo
(Mercury also is associated with the sign Virgo and rules information, although this planet is not traveling in conjunction with the Moon at this time.) Virgo highlights the need to take care of organizing something that has needed a thorough clean-out for a while.
 
Friday, Saturday: the Moon is in Libra
It’s not easy to keep everything in balance at all times in your life. Whenever the Moon is in Libra is a good time to notice if anything is off or out of whack and needs attention. 

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, if the Moon is currently 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! It is also 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 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).

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 (resumes its regular speed) 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 including Direct & In Station)

*Venus Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Relationships, especially love relationships, will likely be more in the background than upfront. Take it easy with expressed feelings of that nature and agree to address any concerns after Venus goes Direct. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Venus when appropriate.)

*Mars Retrograde – just like Mercury, the speed of the planet slows down considerably. Decisions and actions will be more difficult to implement. Avoid confrontations. Be careful about cuts & burns. (See info about Mercury Direct & In-Station and apply that to Mars when appropriate.)

**Total Lunar Eclipse – when the Moon appears to be completely covered.
**Partial Lunar Eclipse – the Full Moon is not completely covered.
**Lunar Eclipse/A – appulse, a penumbral eclipse, the Moon enters only the penumbral of the earth. (penumbral = shadowy, partial shadow, marginal area)
