Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 13, 2017 – Aug 19, 2017:
This week Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday at 11° Virgo 38′, bringing the number of planets (if you include Chiron) currently in retrograde motion to six. Mercury is dignified in Virgo, because it both rules and is exalted in that sign. But it’s also often a little more problematic when it goes retrograde in its own sign, and this transit should be no different, since it’s also opposing Neptune.

ARIES: Three of Wands
This month you may be bursting at the seams with all the passion and confidence that are needed to put your goals into place.
The Three of Wands — this version from Timothy Lantz’ Archeon Tarot — speaks of a renewed sense of purpose, clarity and motivation – the desire and willingness to “make something happen!”
You may already have a new project in the works, in which case you’re probably beginning to see the fruits of your labors pay off. Or you may be on the verge of launching a new project, and if that’s the case, there’s no better time than the present.
The Three of Wands embodies such a powerful life-force energy that it never permits itself to be “still.” It’s always improving.
Notice how the Pegasus in this deck is both watching over his shoulder (toward what has already been accomplished) and preparing to take flight. There’s a nobility also associated with this card, which is befitting the majestic stance of our winged friend.
You may have recently discovered your life’s purpose. Or you may just now be acting on aspirations that you were too afraid to reach for in the past. This card speaks of a new burst of inspiration, a second wind, and the confidence with which to see it through.
If you’re starting something new try to inject yourself fully into it, as from this point forward you’re going to have opportunities to expand your horizons. Whether that means through travel, enterprise, education or career, the Three of Wands tells you that now is the time to spread your wings and fly!

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 9, 2017 – Jul 15, 2017:
We start this week with a Full Moon in Capricorn on Sunday. This is known as the Full Buck Moon — or Full Thunder Moon — in Native American traditions.
As Full Moons are said to shine a spotlight on areas in your chart that are affected (by house position and contacts to other planets) you might look to your own natal chart to see where this will play out for you.
The Full Moon each month provides an overview of the progress you’ve made since its New Moon counterpoint back in June. Seeds that were planted then will surely have sprouted; do you need to make adjustments or change your course entirely? Now is the time to think about what you’ve accomplished and where you want to go from here.
This particular Full Moon — at 17 Capricorn 09 — conjuncts Pluto, which can make for a very intense — and potentially volatile — lunar cycle.
