Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Apr 12, 2021 – Apr 18, 2021:
This week starts a Venus / Pluto square — with the Moon joining in — on Monday. Venus and Pluto make up what is called a planetary pair with each of them naturally ruling opposing signs. They’re both inherently tied to relationships as well (for the same reasons — ie as natural rulers of the ascendant / descendant or relationship axis.
The Venus / Pluto square can manifest as conflicts in your personal relationships. Venus is not happy in Aries (the sign of its detriment) to begin with, and the hard aspect to Pluto can bring problems that have been simmering beneath the surface to a head and force you to confront your relationship problems head on.

This week starts with the Moon in Capricorn applying to a conjunction with Pluto on Monday. Although the Moon is debilitated in Capricorn — the sign of its Detriment — there are many positive attributes associated with this Moon. Things like wisdom, discipline and maturity, among many others.
The Moon in Capricorn emphasizes a call to look at what’s important, to separate the wheat from the chaff and to simplify our lives. It can also describe a need to get more serious about our goals and professional accomplishments. As such, we want to focus on the more positive aspects of the Moon / Pluto conjunction, things like transformation and inner strength, rather than the more difficult aspects: things like force, domination and destruction.

We start this week with a Grand Air Trine, involving the Moon, Saturn and North Node, on Monday. The Moon is still Full, in Libra, trining Saturn in Aquarius and the North Node in Gemin. Mars — since it’s still closely conjunct the North Node — is also part of this Grand Trine.
This is a great aspect for interacting with others, collaborating and sharing ideas. It’s good for meeting up with like-minded people, and for brainstorming and problem-solving. It’s a pleasant, harmonious aspect that can see you wanting to connect with others, whether that means face to face ot via social media.

This week starts with a Mars / Saturn trine on Monday. With Saturn in its own sign (and Mars disposited by the Sun and Venus), it’s a good time to take plans that have been thoroughly and painstakingly finessed (Saturn) and put them into action (Mars).
While this aspect isn’t particularly luck, it does clear the path to get things done. It knows that there is work to be done and gives you the motivation and discipline to set about doing it. It’s rife with opportunities, as long as you’re willing to work for them.

This week starts on Monday with Mercury moving into Pisces, where it will join the Sun, Venus and Jupiter. Mercury is said to be debilitated in Pisces, as the sign of both its detriment and fall.
But there are many positive aspects associated with this combination. Things like heightened intuition, increased sensitivity, unparalleled compassion and a sense of being aligned with, and a part of humanity overall. Something we could all use a little more of in these trying times.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 8, 2021 – Mar 14, 2021:
We start this week on Monday with two semi-sextiles (30° aspects): one involving the Sun and Jupiter and the other involving Mercury and Neptune.
The first one may see you vacillating between your life purpose (Sun) and your ideals (Jupiter). Similar to a pendulum that’s slowing down its momentum and finding its center, the focus shifts from Sun (ego, will, purpose, Self) to Jupiter (expansion, evolution, aspirations, growth) and back again until it finds a place to settle — somewhere in between.

This week starts with a Moon in Libra, which makes only favorable aspects — most notably trines to Saturn, Mercury and Jupiter — on Monday. It also becomes part of a Grand Air Trine, involving the Moon, Jupiter and the North Node before the day is through.
This is said to be a benefic configuration, with the planets involved all supporting one another in harmony. The Moon in Libra is is known for fairness and objectivity; it strives for balance and harmony at all times. It’s gracious, cooperative and diplomatic, making for pleasant and harmonious interactions.

We start this week on Monday with Venus semi-sextiling Pluto. This transit is passionate, sensuous and seductive, especially with respect to personal relationships. It brings with it the urge to merge and to form deep, meaningful connections.
The purpose of a Venus / Pluto transit is to act as a catalyst for transformation. And as semi-sextiles act as instruments of transition from one sign archetype to the next, this one can see you striving to gain a clearer understanding of your own priorities.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Feb 15, 2021 – Feb 21, 2021:
We start the week on Monday with Venus trining the North Node (and thus automatically sextiling the South Node). This aspect can bring new people into your life who feel familiar and who can be instrumental to your evolutionary process.
This aspect is karmic in nature, meaning that the people you meet during this time are here to propel you toward your destiny — and vice versa. Your actions and interactions can have far reaching repercussions so make sure you treat the people you meet during this time (and all times) with dignity and respect.
Feb 08 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Feb 8, 2021 – Feb 14, 2021:
This week begins on Monday with a retrograde Mercury conjuncting the Sun. This is an inferior conjunction, meaning that it’s passing between the Earth and the Sun. It’s also “combust,” or so close to the Sun that it’s obscured by the Sun’s rays. The exact conjunction is referred to by classical astrologers as “cazimi,” which means in the heart of the Sun.
This is a powerful condition, with the cazimi planet’s influence generally seen as heightened and energized by the Sun. But because Mercury’s retrograde and is essentially “hidden” by the Sun, this aspect can be somewhat problematic. The main thing to watch for is information that is hidden or lacking, which can result in making ill-informed decisions, especially given Mercury’s retrograde status.

This week begins on Monday with Venus moving into Aquarius and in mutual reception with Uranus. Venus in Aquarius is independent and open-minded. It’s a friendly, sociable placement with a penchant for quirkiness and eccentricity. It’s self-reliant and autonomous, with progressive social values and an interest in humanitarian ideals.
This transit is good for exploring your views on relationships and what makes them unique. It’s good for throwing out preconceived notions, and being more tolerant of the many different relationship styles. It’s also excellent for expressing your own individuality and acknowledging the same in others.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Jan 25, 2021 – Jan 31, 2021:
This week starts with a 60° aspect (sextile) between the Sun and Chiron on Monday. This transit can lead us to a better understanding of what others are going through at any given time. Especially the more agonizing emotional experiences that are still unresolved. It open us up to vulnerabilities we might ordinarily dismiss or overlook. It can bring reminders of our own traumatic experiences to the forefront, and help us to identify the same in others.
This transit is made all the more relevant in that it’s positioned in action-oriented signs. With Sun in Aquarius — the sign that’s associated with embracing the quirks and idiosyncrasies in others — and Chiron in Aries — the sign associated with courage and conviction — this aspect act as a catalyst for change, by breaking through whatever obstacles are standing in your way.
