Today: January 7, 2011
Waxing moon in Aquarius; moon void-of-course 3:51 until 9:57 pm, when it moves into Pisces. Work late? Forget it. Doing things “not by the book” is advised for all, but particularly Aquarius, Libra, Gemini, Aries, Sagittarius, Pisces, and Cancer. If Capricorn, Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Virgo are feeling in “free-fall” mode, see if you can swing with it. Imposing order brings no one happiness today.
This week: May 16-22, 2013
Need a boost? Make career moves when moon is between first and last quarter. Yes, that gives you two whole weeks to be brave, energetic, imaginative, and forthright. Also, this weekend is excellent for spring cleaning. Virgo moons put one in the mood to decide “this stays, and that goes.” This may also be true for interpersonal relationships, although when the sun moves into Gemini on Monday, endless discussion and option-exploring could be the theme of the day.
Thursday, May 16
Waxing moon in Leo. Fire sign moons prompt excitement, arguments, or “discussions,” depending on your perspective. Leo moons bring opportunities to indulge your childish side or get a radical haircut that shows your fierceness (incredible how Sagittarian Tyra Banks totally coopted that word, isn’t it?). Leo, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Libra, and Gemini: you won’t be happy with the status quo. Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Scorpio, Pisces, and Cancer: others may try to snow you. Remind them that’s out of season.
Friday, May 17
Waxing moon in Leo. People are in a mood to celebrate absolutely anything. However, the credit-hogs could be lining up at the trough. This could make Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius feel squeezed — and not in a good way. Leo, Aries, Sagittarius, Libra, and Gemini: keep your dignity and overlook the minions nipping at your heels. Virgo, Cancer, Capricorn, and Pisces: you’ll be attracted to folks who need a lot of attention. Is this good for you?
Saturday, May 18
First quarter moon in Leo, moon void-of-course 12:56 am until 5:38 am when it moves into Virgo. A turning point for events that began around May 9. And a weekend of spring cleaning — do it now, because it will take so much longer next week! Virgo moons also hone precision. Work on fine-tuning. Virgo, Capricorn, Taurus, Cancer, and Scorpio: be precise — vagueness is for Gemini, Aquarius, Sagittarius, and Pisces. Aries, Libra, and Leo: you’ll want reassurance, but have no patience for listening. Go figure.
Sunday, May 19
Waxing moon in Virgo. A fine day for reviewing your health plan, or exercise regime. Also super for being a fussypants. Embrace the anal-retentive side — and see how others do the same, particularly for Sagittarius, Gemini, or Pisces (it will come easily). Virgo, Capricorn, and Taurus: look for items or relationships of value, and invest. Libra, Aquarius, Aries, and Aquarius: It may take you longer than you like to tell a story or understand an experience. Invest the time.
Monday, May 20
Waxing moon in Virgo, moon void-of-course 12:46 pm until 1:07 pm when it moves into Libra, sun moves into Gemini. Flaunt ideas, writing, and all communication after 1 pm, when air signs align. Libra, Gemini, Aquarius, Virgo, and Sagittarius: others may be surprised at your opinions, but listen to your gut. Aries, Capricorn, and Cancer: stay on the fence — you’ll be above the fray up there. Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, and Pisces: are you feeling the urge to merge? Partnership is where it’s at for you.
Tuesday, May 21
Waxing moon in Libra. When the moon is in the sign of partnership, strange bedfellows could turn up — but so could the perfect match. And Libra is in that rare zone called “decisiveness.” So is Aquarius, Gemini, Sagittarius, Taurus, and Leo. Capricorn, Aries, and Cancer: avoid taking action; wait until moon moves into Scorpio (tomorrow evening). Scorpio, Pisces, and Virgo: find a tune, and then stay in harmony with it. Safer that way.
Wednesday, May 22
Waxing moon in Libra, moon void-of-course 3:35 am until 4:55 pm when it moves into Scorpio. Chatter and changes are the theme, particularly for couples. Can’t decide where to eat? You’re in tune with the moon. Find yourself attracted to someone bad for you in the evening? Ditto. Libra, Scorpio, Gemini, Cancer, Aquarius, and Pisces: romantic impulses make you dizzy. Leo, Sagittarius, and Virgo: consider your options. Secrets could irk Taurus, Capricorn, and Aries.

This horoscope traces the passage of the moon, not the sun. Simply read from day to day to watch the moon’s influence as it moves through the signs of the zodiac.
When the moon is in your sun sign (e.g., you’re a Taurus and the moon is in Taurus), you are beginning a new 28-day emotional cycle. Expect increased insight and emotional responses during this two day period. The moon changes sign approximately every 2.5 days, so it’s influence is intense, but ultimately brief. Now, when the moon is in the sign opposite your sun sign, expect some ups and downs. Here are the oppositions: Aries, Libra. Taurus, Scorpio. Gemini, Sagittarius. Cancer, Capricorn. Leo, Aquarius and Virgo, Pisces.
As the moon between signs, it will sometimes become "void of course," and make no major angles to planets. Consider this a null time and try to avoid decision-making or implementing decisions if you can. It is an excellent period for creativity, unexpected encounters, and quirky outcomes.
