We start this week with Mars, Venus and Jupiter all visible in the early morning skies. Although Jupiter is still so close to the Sun that it won’t be easy to see, these planets rising ahead of the Sun are always a sight to behold.

We start this week on Monday with Mars having just entered Libra (joining its counterpart, Venus) and the Sun just leaving it behind. Where Venus is happy in Libra, Mars is somewhat frustrated. It’s the sign of its detriment, meaning that it’s influence is weakened in this sign.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 8, 2017 – Oct 14, 2017:
We start this week with a Venus / Saturn square on Sunday. This aspect can bring relationship problems to the forefront. It can manifest as feeling lonely, rejected or left out. It can see you feeling like you’re not getting your needs met and if so you want to look at whether you’ve been too unsure of yourself to ask. It may not be the best time to put your heart on the line, but this aspect is good for getting clarity, for better or worse.

You may be struggling with doing the right thing this month, or you may be trying to make a choice between right and wrong. Sometimes those choices aren’t clear — depending on whatever prerequisites you have in place for making those kinds of determinations.
The Justice card — this version from Jaen Tarot — is about having to live with the choices you make and being able to sleep at night once you’ve made them. This requires an ability to balance the pros and cons of a situation, which requires balancing your head and heart.
Notice that all of the figures in this card have their eyes closed. A small child rests over a giant sleeping fish, as a Madonna figure rises up from the mists of his dreams and watches over them.
The scale she holds in her hand is precariously balanced. Between head and heart. Need and desire. Right and wrong. If any of those were given more weight than the other, that balance would be lost and the quiet contentment disrupted.
The Justice card speaks of a universal justice, divorced from what you want or wish for, and held under the microscope of truth, wisdom and universal law. This means that no matter how desperately you want a specific outcome, the one handed down will be fair and just.
There are karmic repercussions inherent in this card. Whether it’s karma you’re sewing (doing the wrong thing even when you know it’s wrong) or karma that you’re reaping (having to face challenges that are a result of past misdeeds) know that in the end Justice does prevail. Keep that in mind so that you too can sleep at night, knowing that you’ve done the right thing.

This week starts on Sunday with Mercury, Venus and Mars all visible in the early morning sky, and a Mars / Pluto trine in Virgo and Capricorn. The Mars / Pluto transit is about being driven and self-empowered. The earth sign trine speaks of funneling that energy into something constructive and productive. It’s about standing strong in your convictions and refusing to be bullied or pushed aside.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 17, 2017 – Sep 23, 2017:
We start this week on Sunday with Venus inconjuncting Chiron. The aspect can put a strain on your love life by forcing you to look at unhealthy relationship patterns, such as mistaking compassion for love or pity for kindness. It underscores the potential for missing (or misreading) important social cues. As with all inconjunct aspects, the key to rebalancing this energy is adjusting your own perceptions and adapting your own approach.

We start this week on Sunday with the Moon — still Full — in Taurus. This is a great placement for the Moon, as it is exalted in Taurus. meaning that it’s a revered placement. An exalted planet or luminary is said to express its clearest and purest essence in that sign, in this case it’s the calm, gentle, fertile sign of Taurus.

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.
