Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Dec 30, 2019 – Jan 5, 2020:
We start this week with Mercury trining Uranus and squaring Chiron on Monday. The trine to Uranus is great for brainstorming and thinking outside the box, especially as Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury. With these two planets in earth signs though (Capricorn and Taurus respectively) you won’t be making any hasty decisions. You’re more likely to weigh your options carefully and act with precision.
The square to Chiron can bring feelings of guilt and regret to the surface. You may 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 you don’t fall prey to some undeserving culprit’s sob story.

This week starts on Monday with a Moon / Mars conjunction in Scorpio and the Sun squaring Chiron. As Mars is dignified in Scorpio (while the Moon is debilitated there), this aspect can reveal things that are both enlightening and disturbing. It can bring hidden information (and agendas) to light, but it can also manifest as an almost invasive compulsion to expose someone’s deepest, darkest secrets.
While the Moon and Mars in Scorpio emphasizes passion, intensity and desire, the Sun Chiro square can see you needing to remedy an imbalance between the desire for self-actualization (the Sun) and the urge for self-sacrifice (Chiron). Heading up a volunteer program or taking part in something meaningful in community are good ways to actualize this transit.

We start the week on a positive note, with Jupiter trining Uranus on Monday. This is a powerful transit, loaded with opportunities to make the world a better place. With the planet associated with optimism, growth, expansion and evolution (Jupiter) favorably aspecting the planet associate with innovation, progress and change there’s a lot that can be accomplished during this time. The sky is absolutely the limit hiere, so don’t be afraid to fly!
Among many other things, this transit is good for opening your heart to those you love and expressing appreciation and gratitude for all that you have. It’s good for coming together with others and celebrating your allegiances while honoring and accepting your differences. It’s a time for feeling inspired and optimistic about the future.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Dec 9, 2019 – Dec 15, 2019:
We have a Full Moon this week at 19 Gemini 51, as well as Mercury changing signs, Chiron changing direction and Venus finishing up her 3-week reign of terror — otherwise known as being out of bounds.
We start with Mercury moving into Sagittarius on Monday. Mercury is debilitated in Sagittarius, the sign of its fall. But don’t let anyone tell you it’s not “happy” in this sign: aside for a penchant to exaggerate and insert its foot firmly in mouth, this placement is known to be just about as upbeat and optimistic as you can get.
Dec 02 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Dec 2, 2019 – Dec 8, 2019:
We start the week on Monday with Jupiter moving into Capricorn for the first time in almost 12 yrs. It joins Venus, Saturn, Pluto and the South Node which are already there. Jupiter is said to be in its Fall in Capricorn, as the enthusiastic, bombastic and over the top Jupiterian energy may feel stifled under Saturn’s more restrictive and oppressive domain.
But there are a lot of positive attributes associated with Jupiter in Capricorn. It’s just as ambitious as any other Jupiter is, but it brings with it more hard work, discipline and perseverance than any other sign. As Jupiter is associated with growth, personal expansion and higher mind ideals, it may be frustrated by the traditionally reserved Capricorn energy. But it’s also more likely to take those far-fetched Jupiterian ideal and turn them into reality.

Happy Holidays! This week we have one planet (Venus) changing signs, one planet (Neptune) changing direction, and a Sun / Moon conjunction (also known as a New Moon) in Sagittarius.
We start things off with the Moon in Scorpio — nestled between Mars and Mercury — on Sunday. Because the Moon will be little more than a sliver in the early morning hours, you should be able to get outside and view this configuration before the Sun comes up — between around 6 am and 8.
Nov 18 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Nov 18, 2019 – Nov 24, 2019:
There a lot happening this week, starting with an out of bounds Venus, Mercury changing direction and the Sun and Mars changing signs. We’ve also got the Leonid meteor showers peaking in the early hours of Monday morning.
Mars is not a happy camper at this time: it’s void of course, at an anaretic (29th) degree and debilitated by sign (Libra, the sign of its detriment). At its worst, Mars in Libra can be wishy-washy, indecisive or argumentative. It likes to ruffle feathers and play the devil’s advocate, often without even a clear commitment to its stance. But at its best, it’s a tireless advocate who’s willing to fight for what it sees as right, just or fair.
Nov 10 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Nov 11, 2019 – Nov 17, 2019:
This week starts with a Sun / Mercury conjunction at 18º Scorpio 55 on Monday. This is Mercury’s inferior conjunction, which renders it “combust,” or so close to the Sun that it’s obscured by the Sun’s rays. The exact conjunction takes place around 3:20 pm UT, and 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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Nov 4, 2019 – Nov 10, 2019:
This week starts with the Sun trining the Moon’s North Node (and thus automatically trining the South Node) on Monday. This aspect is all about coming to terms with who you are and being more than ok with it. It’s about bringing the lessons of the past (South Node) into harmony with where you are today.
As this is a Water sign trine it may have more to do with feelings and emotions than anything else. It can relate to gaining a better understanding of the inner workings of your own psyche (Scorpio Sun) and healing old wounds and hurts (Cancer Node). As the Nodes are said to be karmic in nature you can make great strides toward clearing up karmic debts during this time.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 28, 2019 – Nov 3, 2019:
We start this week with a New Moon at 4º Scorpio 25 on Monday. As New Moons always represent new beginnings and opportunities to start anew, this one — in Scorpio — presents opportunities for deep personal connections with others, as well as a chance to explore the inner workings of our own psyches.
Oct 21 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 21, 2019 – Oct 27, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon in Cancer (opposite Pluto) and a Venus / Neptune trine. Although the Moon is dignified in Cancer (as the sign it naturally rules), the opposition to Pluto can intensify emotional reactions, especially the more uncomfortable emotions, like jealousy, mistrust and even paranoia.
It’s a relatively fleeting aspect, which should be overshadowed by the much more pleasant Venus / Neptune trine. This spect asserts a idealized version of love, beauty, romance and compassion for others. It can bring you closer to loved ones, and see you feeling so connected to them that it’s hard to tell where you end and they begin. As a result, you may feel so in sync with those who hold a special place in your heart that you know exactly what they need to feel appreciated during this time.
Oct 14 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 14, 2019 – Oct 20, 2019:
This week starts with a Sun / Pluto square and a Mercury / Saturn sextile on Monday. The Sun / Pluto square can be extremely volatile. It can erupt into power struggles or confrontations with others. Intense anger (rage), trust issues and overreactions are all potential manifestations of this transit, which can fortunately be tempered by the Mercury/ Saturn aspect.
Mercury sextile Saturn makes it a little easier to “get a grip” and see things from a more rational perspective. It puts the Sun / Pluto paranoia under a microscope and forces you to see things as they are rather than jumping to conclusions. It forces you to rely on facts rather than conjecture and can get you thinking logically rather than irrationally.
