Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro May 20, 2019 – May 26, 2019:
We start this week on Monday with Saturn conjuncting the South Node at 20º Capricorn 12. As the Moon’s Nodes are always naturally in polarity — and thus always in opposition to one another — Saturn simultaneously opposes the North Node during this time as well.
This is can be a particularly meaningful transit — personally and universally — as Saturn and the Nodes are tied to both the passage of time and the concept of fate. You want to pay attention to people coming into your life during this time as they’re likely to play a role in facilitating your growth.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of May 13, 2019 – May 19, 2019:
This week starts with the Sun inconjuncting Jupiter on Monday. This is a feel-good aspect that can be overly dramatic and inclined to go over the top. It can see you feeling so expansive and gregarious that you end up biting off more than you can chew or promising more than you can deliver. The combination of enthusiasm and benevolence can get you thinking you can do more than you really can. And while your heart may be in the right place, your inability to follow through can get you into hot water.
This aspect is known for over-indulging, over-extending and over-committing. In other words overdoing everything. You may be feeling so jovial and so overconfident that you have a hard time reigning in it and exercising any real discipline.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of May 6, 2019 – May 12, 2019:
We start this week on Monday, with Mercury moving into Taurus, joining Uranus, the Sun and Moon. Mercury in Taurus is patient, practical and serene. It can be slow and methodical, mainly because it doesn’t see the point in getting its feathers ruffled over things that are likely to iron themselves out over time.
With all these planets in Taurus, you’re more likely to be thinking a lot about your finances, your income, earnings and savings. It ‘s also a good time to look at changes you want to make in your environment (such as home renovations or landscaping) as well.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Apr 29, 2019 – May 5, 2019:
This week, we’ve got a planet changing direction (Saturn), a New Moon in Taurus, and two planets (Mars and Pluto) that are officially out of bounds.
Starting on Monday, we have a Balsamic Moon in Pisces, which sextiles Uranus and the Sun — and semi-sextiles Chiron and Venus — before the day is through. As lunar aspects are fleeting, these transits will probably only produce short-lived effects. But in general, these are all favorable contacts that should see you feeling more creative, compassionate and optimistic.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Apr 22, 2019 – Apr 28, 2019:
We start this week with the Sun completing its conjunction to Uranus in Taurus on Monday. This aspect is good for expressing yourself in ways that may not be conventional but can inspire tolerance and acceptance in others. As the Sun is tied to your life force, will and self-expression, while Uranus is tied to thinking outside the box, these planets joining together can be incredibly progressive and innovative.
These two planets rule opposing signs (Leo and Aquarius respectively), so bringing them together at the same degree of the same sign creates an opening for ironing out personal differences. Even so, they’re fixed sign planets coming together in a fixed sign (Taurus), emphasizing the tendency toward self-expression and individuation. This aspect encourages you to march to the beat of your own drum and express your own unique individuality in ways that inspire rather than shock.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Apr 15, 2019 – Apr 21, 2019:
This week, we have three planets (the Sun, Venus and Mercury) and an asteroid (Juno) changing signs, two planets (Mercury and Mars) in mutual reception, and a Full Moon at the last degree of Libra.
Starting on Monday, there’s a perfect Yod formation involving the Moon, Venus and Pluto, with the Moon as the focal point. The Yod aspect is also known as the “finger of God”), and with these planets involved, it can bring with it a desire to connect more intimately with loved ones and relationship partners.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Apr 8, 2019 – Apr 14, 2019:
There’s a lot happening this week, with both the asteroid Ceres and the planet Jupiter turning retrograde, and a whole slew of hard (squares and oppositions) aspects involving the inner (personal) and outer (transpersonal) planets.
Starting on Monday, we have a Moon in calm, sensuous Taurus, sextiling Venus and Neptune and trining Saturn and Pluto. The Moon is exalted in Taurus and these harmonious aspects to planets occupying water and earth signs should make for a relatively mellow day.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Apr 1, 2019 – Apr 7, 2019:
We start this week on Monday, with all planets moving forward again and a Balsamic Aquarius Moon. The Moon in Aquarius emphasizes humanitarian ideals; recognizing that there’s a place in the world for all of us and that we each have something unique to contribute.
It also emphasizes progress, activism and uniqueness. It speaks of figuring out who we are as a distinct individuals, and what impact we want to make on the world. This Moon is about advocating for the underdog, flying your freak flag, and thinking outside the box.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 25, 2019 – Mar 31, 2019:
This week starts with a loose t-square involving Venus, the Moon and Mars on Monday. This is a fixed t-square with Venus at the focal point of a Moon / Mars opposition, and as both of them are debilitated by sign, it can manifest as conflict and contention in relationship.
Venus is void of course, with the Moon following right behind, but she’ll only be void for a few hours, before moving into Sagittarius. This should be a welcome change, and could see you wanting to spend time with those who make you feel good about yourself, rather than those who drag you down. The Moon in Sagittarius is expansive and spirited, with a strong focus on personal and spiritual evolution.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 18, 2019 – Mar 24, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with Mercury in sextile to Mars. Both of these planets are in detriment (each in the sign that is opposite of the one it rules), but the sextile is a harmonious aspect that should make up for it. In general, this aspect is great for making plans and then following through with them.
It’s about being on the same page with those you are working with and getting things done with little conflict or aggravation. Keep in mind that Mercury is retrograde, so you want to hold off on signing contracts or making important purchases. But if you’re thinking about negotiating a business deal or want to get your ideas before someone who can help you turn them into reality, this is the time to do it.
Mar 11 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 11, 2019 – Mar 17, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon — still New — in Taurus, at the midpoint between Uranus and Mars. The Moon is exalted in Taurus, meaning that it’s a revered placement. An exalted planet or luminary is said to express its clearest and purest essence in that sign, in this case it’s the calm, gentle, fertile sign of Taurus.
This placement presents opportunities for relaxing, meditating and getting grounded. 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. You might not want to become too complacent though: with the Moon at the midpoint of Uranus and Mars, there’s bound to be some action. In general the Taurus archetype is about building, cultivating and developing, so keep in mind there is work to be done.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Mar 4, 2019 – Mar 10, 2019:
There’s a lot going on astrologically this week, with one planet (Uranus) changing signs, another planet (Mercury) changing direction, and a Sun / Moon (New Moon) / Neptune / Vesta conjunction all at 16º Pisces.
We start the week on Monday with a Balsamic Moon in Aquarius which semi-sextiles Saturn and the Sun in the early morning hours and then sextiles Jupiter later in the day. The Aquarius Moon is about being innovative, open-minded and progressive. While the aspects to Saturn and the Sun may be somewhat sobering, the sextile to Jupiter makes it easier to the the glass as half full.
