Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of May 17, 2021 – May 23, 2021:
We start this week on Monday with the Sun trinining Pluto and Venus conjuncting the North Node. The Sun / Pluto transit is all about harnessing your personal power and channeling it in productive / transformative ways. It’s excellent for business and financial matters since both of these planets are in Earth signs. It can also be used to make positive changes in yourself — as in how you wish to present yourself to the outer world and how you want to be perceived.
The Venus / North Node conjunction automatically opposes the South Node, since the Moon’s nodes are always in direct opposition. This aspect can bring new people into your life who feel familiar and who can be instrumental to your evolutionary process.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of May 10, 2021 – May 16, 2021:
As we start this week (on Monday), Mercury conjuncts the North Node, thus simultaneously opposing the South Node. This can manifest as a chance encounter that turns out to be anything but in the end. Whether it’s a past-life connection or just someone you meet unexpectedly that turns into a significant connection, you want to pay attention.
Also be mindful of what you say and how you say it. Mercury is well placed in Gemini and as it represents communications and ideas, you want to be conscious of how your words come across to others. And remember that the Nodes are said to be karmic in nature. So pay attention to what you put out there as it could have long term repercussions.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of May 3, 2021 – May 9, 2021:
This week starts on Monday, with Mercury squaring Jupiter while the Sun squares Saturn. In both cases these squares involve planets that naturally rule opposing signs, with Mercury and Jupiter ruling Gemini and Sagittarius while the Sun and Saturn rule Leo and Aquarius.
As a result there are likely to be times when you’re not on the same page as the people you’re dealing with, and conflicts may arise. With respect to Mercury and Jupiter, the issue might be overdoing things, overcommitted or over extending yourself, which can lead to resentments later on.

The month of May always seems positive by its very nature of springtime growth and the awakening of Mother Earth from the winter’s dormancy, plus it is my birth month!
We begin this month with 4 planets (Sun, Mercury, Venus and Uranus) in earthy and sensual Taurus so comfort and beauty reign for the first 2 weeks anyway.
Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini on the 29th of the month, there is a Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius on the 26th and Saturn goes into its retrograde phase on the 23rd. The plot thickens as things must be reviewed or re-visited with the Gemini influence at that time…details, details, details.
Mars continues forward in the sign of Cancer and Jupiter enters watery Pisces on the 14th, creating a compatible blend of energies to accomplish your tasks. It is a sensitive energy, however, so gear your expectations to accommodate other’s needs in the equation.
There are difficult aspects with Mars and Uranus in the quincunx aspect to the south node from the 10th-15th, and also Saturn and the south node with Mars in the quincunx aspect as well. This is also known as a Yod, finger of God, aspect that can trigger events that can alter one’s fate. With Mars and Uranus, this can be an unexpected violent event that changes something essential in one’s life. Be aware of your surroundings during this time.

There’s lots happening this week, starting with the re-emergence of Venus in the night sky, a Full (Super) Moon in Scorpio and the planet Pluto going retrograde.
Starting on Monday, with Venus finally getting enough distance from the Sun’s rays to become visible again, it can now be seen (along with Mercury) in the evening sky, shortly after sunset. This marks the onset of a 263 day period where Venus will be seen as an evening star, before it disappears beneath the Sun’s rays again and starts the next portion of its synodic journey.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Apr 19, 2021 – Apr 25, 2021:
This week starts with the Sun and Mercury both leaving Aries and moving into Taurus on Monday. The Sun in Taurus speaks of getting in touch with nature and the earth, and with taking care of “business.” This is a good time for thinking about making, saving and investing money. It’s also a good time for taking care of your physical body and for indulging all five senses.
While the Sun was in Aries you may have been so focused on getting things done that you didn’t have time to stop and smell the flowers. The Sun in Taurus not only slows you down enough to do just that, it also heightens your ability to appreciate and enjoy the prospect.

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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Apr 5, 2021 – Apr 11, 2021:
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.

This month will be an interesting cosmic ride as we move from Aries high energy to placid Taurus but with a twist as Uranus, the great awakener planet is in Taurus.
All the planets are in direct motion with Pluto going retrograde later in the month but not until April 27th. Mercury moves into Aries on April 3rd, making everyone more decisive and direct in their ideas and actions.
To complement this, Mars is in Gemini until April 24th so that mutual reception of planets in each other’s signs supports this energy. Mercury joins Venus, already in Aries until April 15th, and since they are friends, this bodes well for more social interaction and good times.
Jupiter continues its movement through Aquarius from 23 degrees to 28 degrees expanding innovation and out of the box thinking, while Saturn trails a bit behind, also in Aquarius, from 11 to 13 degrees.
Mar 29 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 29, 2021 – Apr 4, 2021:
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.
Mar 22 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 22, 2021 – Mar 28, 2021:
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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 15, 2021 – Mar 21, 2021:
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.
