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.

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.
