Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 30, 2019 – Oct 6, 2019:
We’ve got a lot going on this week, with two planets (Mercury and Mars) changing signs, a planet (Pluto) changing direction, and a stellium of planets (five in all — if you include the still-New Moon) in Libra by week’s end.
The Libra Moon is nestled in between Venus and Mercury at the beginning of the week (on Monday) setting the tone for pleasant and amicable conversations. This is a graceful, conciliatory aspect that seeks to set aside differences and bring people together in harmony. While it’s a relatively fleeting transit, a lot can be accomplished through tact, diplomacy and skillful communications during this time.

The month begins with Pluto going into direct motion on October 3rd at 20º Capricorn 38’. Pluto is the slowest moving known planet in our solar system and will proceed to 20º Capricorn 49’ at the end of the month.
This degree was transited by Pluto in the first week of January 2019 so there is a transformative cycle that culminates this month for people whose charts (heads up to anyone with major chart points and planets at 20º of cardinal signs) are directly impacted by this transit.
Pluto transits are not easy and usually require us to encounter dark energies that facilitate a breakdown to breakthrough kind of transformation. Mercury will be in the sign of Libra through the 4th and then enter the sign of Scorpio, where it will spend two months before going into its retrograde cycle on October 31 at 27º Scorpio. Secrets will be revealed to be sure!
Venus transits Libra through the 9th and then enters Scorpio, a sign she is not very comfortable in. Mars ends its Virgo transit on the 5th and then will be in Libra through the end of the month. Mars tends to be weak in Libra so both Venus and Mars will be energetically off this month. Be patient with relationship dynamics throughout October and into early November.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 23, 2019 – Sep 29, 2019:
We usher in the Autumnal Equinox this week (Spring Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere) on Monday, as the Sun moves into Libra. From a symbolic standpoint, the Equinox is associated balance and harmony. It’s also associated with with reaping what we have sewn and harvesting what we have grown. It speaks of conserving our energy and making preparations for the longer colder nights.
With the day (consciousness and intention) and night (intuition and emotion) momentarily equal, the ability to synchronize our own inner rhythms is unparalleled during this time. This is reinforced by the fact that the Sun has moved into Libra, which shifts our collective consciousness toward thoughts of fairness and impartiality. The Sun in Libra is objective and open-minded, willing to weigh all sides of an argument and listen to all points of view.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 16, 2019 – Sep 22, 2019:
This week starts with Mercury opposing Chiron on Monday. This aspect can bring feelings of guilt and regret to the surface. It can cause you to be more susceptible to deception — including your own. This is not the time to wallow in self-pity or to let your feelings of inadequacy govern your actions.
You could be questioning whether you’ve done enough to help others or whether you’ve said the right things. You may also be more gullible than usual, so be careful not to fall prey to someone’s sob story. Don’t get caught up in (melo)drama and don’t let your compassion for others cloud your judgment.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 9, 2019 – Sep 15, 2019:
This week we have two planets (Mercury and Venus) changing signs, a Full Moon / Neptune conjunction in Pisces, and a planet (Saturn) stationing as it prepares to go direct.
Starting on Monday, Mars trines Saturn and the North Node while Mercury trines Pluto.The Mars / Saturn trine is not particularly lucky. But it does present opportunities as long as you’re willing to work for them. This is a good time to take plans that have been thoroughly and painstakingly finessed (Saturn) and put them into action (Mars).

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 2, 2019 – Sep 8, 2019:
We start this week with a Sun / Mars conjunction on Monday, with Venus squaring Jupiter and sextiling the North Node. With Mars so close to the Sun it’s said to be hidden by the Sun’s bright rays, a condition known astrologically as “combust.”
Add to that the Venus aspects — the square to Jupiter, an expansive, indulgent energy, and the sextile to the North Node, a cooperative, conciliatory energy — and this combination of aspects can make for a harmonious, productive day.
