Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 16, 2017 – Jul 22, 2017:

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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 2, 2017 – Jul 8, 2017:
This week starts on Sunday with a tense Mercury / Mars / Pluto aspect that can see tempers flaring and conflicts arising. Emotions are likely to be running high, as are impatience and impulsivity. You want to think before you speak, especially if speaking turns into lashing out at others.

ARIES: Six of Swords
You may be on the verge of making important changes in your life, and in doing so will have to think about what you’re taking with you and what you need to leave behind.
This doesn’t necessarily mean material things; in fact that’s rarely what it means. It’s more about attitudes and belief systems, as well as a life you may have built and dreams you may have dreamed that are no longer capable of sustaining you.
The Six of Swords — this version from the Morgan Greer Tarot — is a card of transition and change. Moving from one “place” to another, if only in your mind. Notice how the woman in this card is huddled and shrouded from view. She’s protecting herself from more than just the elements.
She may be mourning the loss of her previous existence, or she may be reflecting on the choices she’s made to leave it all behind. She’s put her faith in the ferryman to get to her safely to her new destination.
Notice too that while the waves are choppy beneath them, they start to smooth out the closer they get to the other shore. And speaking of that other shore, the landscape’s silhouette appears to be promising. It’s lush, flourishing and full of potential.
This is the message behind the Six of Swords. You may not be where you want to be just yet, but you’re moving in the right direction. The Six of Swords reminds us that we’re not alone. We don’t get to the other side without assistance from someone, even when that “assistance” comes in the form of a setback that forces us to change direction.
It also provides clarity and perspective. We may see things we don’t want to see — or admit to ourselves — but it’s that kind of clarity that motivates us toward change. Take some time this month to reflect on where you are and where you want to be heading. This is the first step, courtesy of the Six of Swords, toward manifesting your goals.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jun 25, 2017 – Jul 1, 2017:
This week starts with a square between Mars (in Cancer) and Jupiter (in Libra) on Sunday. This aspect can be problematic. It’s loaded with blustery bravado that can see you biting off way more than you can chew or promising way more than you can deliver.
Jun 17 2017
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jun 18, 2017 – Jun 24, 2017:
This week starts with a Saturn / Mercury opposition on Sunday, just as the Sun sextiles the North Node and Uranus. The Sun’s sextile to both Uranus and the North Node brings in the Uranus / North Node trine (which was partile on Saturday). And that’s a good thing since the Saturn / Mercury opposition can be a bit of a downer or a rain-on-your-parade aspect.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jun 11, 2017 – Jun 17, 2017:
We start this week on Sunday with the Moon in Capricorn (still full) trining Venus and opposing Mars. While the Moon / Mars opposition can be temperamental and tempestuous, this aspect is alleviated somewhat by the trine to Venus, which is dignified for the next three weeks in its own sign.
