Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Oct 26, 2020 – Nov 1, 2020:
This week we have two planets (Mercury and Venus) changing signs, a Cardinal t-square involving the Moon, Mercury and Saturn, and a Full “Blue” Moon in Taurus.
We start the week on Monday with the Moon in Pisces, where it trines Mercury and the Sun and sextiles Uranus before the day is through. These are all relatively cozy and mellow transits, with the Pisces Moon bringing empathy, intuition and empathy to the table, with the Sun, Mercury and Uranus adding elements of brilliance and creativity.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Oct 19, 2020 – Oct 25, 2020:
We start this week with a couple of powerful Jupiter aspects on Monday. First there’s a trine to Venus and then there’s a square to Mars. On its own, the Jupiter / Venus trine is optimistic, enthusiastic and benevolent, and can see you feeling so good about yourself that others respond in kind. Those feelings of goodwill are infectious and can result in opportunities that come to you through unexpected channels.
But the Jupiter / Mars square can definitely overdo it. It can see you biting off more than you can chew, promising more than you can deliver and taking risks that can see you ending up in hot water. Best to keep yourself in check, or at assign a trusted friend to do it for you.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Oct 12, 2020 – Oct 18, 2020:
We start the week with the Moon in Leo and a sextile between Mercury and Venus on Monday. With the respect to the sextile aspect involving Venus and Mercury: this is the only aspect (aside from the conjunction) these two planets can make. This is due to their relative proximity to the Sun and to one another.
Venus is weak in this configuration as it’s in the sign of its fall (Virgo) where Mercury is exalted. And Mercury is in Scorpio, the sign of Venus’s detriment. Still this is a harmonious aspect that promotes cooperation, communication and collaboration.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Oct 5, 2020 – Oct 11, 2020:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon — still Full — in calm, gentle, sensuous Taurus. The Moon in dignified in Taurus, the sign of its exaltation. It’s earthy, composted and tranquil, although it can also be slow-moving and overly cautious. It prefers to savor meaningful experiences, much like someone would savor a meal or a bottle of fine wine.
This Taurus Moon is also making mostly favorable aspects: it sextiles Neptune and trines Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn before the day is through. It makes for a good day to lounge around the house, listening to music, baking, decorating, and — depending on where in the world you are located — landscaping and gardening. These are all Taurus Moon activities, with the idea of comfort, luxury, and getting in touch with nature and the earth being the corresponding theme.

Aries: Two of Swords
With the Full Moon in your sign this month, along with Mars which is also in your sign and still retrograde, you may find yourself struggling to stay in sync partners and loved ones.
You might question whether others have your back, or you may be struggling with a decision that might put you at odds with others.
The Two of Swords — this version from the Samurai Tarot — can refer to an impasse or stalemate that’s more likely than not a result of your own indecision. It can refer to a pivotal moment in time where you recognize that the options before you are equally appealing (or terrifying) and that whatever decision you make will have a huge impact on your life.
In this respect it can refer to inaction and immobility. Sometimes this is due to fear: “What if I make the wrong decision?” But it’s just as often related to a desire to not have to choose at all.
You may have come to an impasse with someone and are actualizing this energy through passive resistance. This isn’t a better solution and it won’t solve anything: you’re going to have to take a stand whether you like it or not. This is the dilemma with the Two of Swords. It tells you that while either decision leads to a different outcome, you can’t know the exact nature of that outcome until you make your choice.
The inertia that comes from choosing not to choose can prevent you from moving forward. It’s going to be critical for you to weigh your options this month, make your decision and then stand by it in the end.
