Weekly Astrology Forecast — Feb 10, 2020 – Feb 16, 2020

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Feb 10, 2020 – Feb 16, 2020:

This week starts with Venus conjuncting Chiron in Aries on Monday. Venus is in its fall in Aries, as the sign opposite Libra which it naturally rules. It can be seen as a bit rash and abrasive, but the conjunction with Chiron shifts the focus away from self-interests and toward understanding the suffering of others.

This transit should see you becoming more aware of your own capacity for giving and for being able to put yourself in other people’s shoes. This is a charitable aspect that compels you to reach into the very depths of your soul — where compassion, forgiveness and understanding all reside — and bring forth that which is within you in order to pass it onto others.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Feb 3, 2020 – Feb 9, 2020:

We start this week on Monday with Mercury moving into Pisces, where it remain until April 11th — aside from a 2 week return to Aquarius between March 4th-16th due to an upcoming retrograde.  Mercury is in detriment in Pisces, the sign opposite Virgo which is naturally rules. As a result, it’s considered “weak” in there, although there are many ways in which Mercury in Pisces is seen as advantageous.

Mercury in Pisces is visionary, mystical and ethereal. It is very perceptive and should have you feeling more introspective and intuitive. But it’s also gullible and highly impressionable so make sure you get your facts straight before you race off down any rabbit holes.

Aries: Ace of Swords

Your card this month — the Ace of Swords from the beautiful Prisma Visions Tarot — is all about achieving the kind of clarity that’s needed to focus your intentions and accomplish your goals.

The Ace of Swords can act as a tool for manifesting. It is raw, pure, unharnessed energy that can be channeled into something both powerful and magical.

It can act as a lightning rod for either positive or negative energy, depending on how it’s used. It refers to getting to the heart of the matter, cutting through the BS, speaking your mind and honoring your truth.

But the Ace of Swords can also be somewhat aggressive and argumentative. When used negatively it really does “cut like a knife” with respect to cruelty or hurtful words. For this reason it’s sometimes best to put some distance between yourself and whatever outside influences are triggering reactions.

Your ruling planet (Mars) is dignified in Capricorn this month. This is a strong placement, associated with climbing to the top, staking your claim and asserting your power — all of which are so beautifully represented here.

Aces are associated with fresh starts and new beginnings, and nowhere is that more evident than the Ace of Swords in this deck, where each card is represents a small snippet of a much bigger picture. Here the Sword glows against a midnight sky, Here there are references to clarity, perfection and purity with the embedded Sword glistening in a new-fallen snow.

The Ace of Swords can have a dual meaning just as the blade itself is double edged. It can be victorious or defiant, depending on how you decide to wield it. Remember that your words and actions can have far reaching consequences, so wield yours not as a weapon this month, but as a conduit for fairness and honesty.

 

February 2020 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

There’s a lot going on this month, including the first Mercury retrograde of the year! The little dude does his apparent backwards dance from February 16th through March 9th, beginning at 12 degrees of Pisces and back to 28 degrees of Aquarius.

Mercury is considered weak in the sign of Pisces because it is opposite Virgo, a sign he rules. In Pisces, Mercury loses his precision focus and gets scattered. Be aware of this during the retrograde period and also when he moves forward over those degrees through the end of March. Mercury is in Pisces until April 12th, so this is a fairly long period of debility, almost 2 months!

Mercury is the conscious mind, the intellect, how we communicate, short trips and mechanical objects. We all have our Mercury Rx stories and while this time can be annoying it is not devastating or to be feared. Any planetary retrograde period is a time to do things over, review progress and revise action. Things generally work themselves out as he begins forward motion again.

Venus is transiting Pisces, her sign of exaltation, through February 8 and then she enters Aries, a sign of her debility because it is opposite Libra, a sign she rules. She is still highly visible in southwestern sky after sunset. Check out that luminous brilliance while you can. May all beings be blessed by this vision.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jan 27, 2020 – Feb 2, 2020:

This week starts with Venus conjuncting Neptune and squaring Mars on Monday. The Venus / Neptune portion of this aspect is a harmonious apsect that is made all the more powerful by the fact that both planets are dignified in Pisces — the sign that Venus is exalted in and Neptune rules. Neptune is also the higher octave of Venus. This conjunction is associated with the purest forms of beauty, art and love.

It is merging completely with others — and with the Universe — and in this respect it’s associated with all of those areas that bring us together in ways that we can relate to one another — through things like music, romance, dreams and psychic connections. It’s visionary, mystical and idealistic. It’s also incredibly compassionate and altruistic. On a personal level it can inspire us to strive for ecstasy, nirvana and bliss.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jan 20, 2020 – Jan 26, 2020:

Starting on Monday, the Sun leaves Capricorn and moves into Aquarius. The Sun is said to be debiliated in Aquarius, the sign of its detriment. But when you look at it, this placement is far from weak. With the bodyt associated with ego, will, Self, etc. (the Sun) in the sign of the Water Bearer, known for pouring wisdom, progress and humanitarian ideals into the collective unconscious — we should be inspired to start marching to the beat of our own drums, to think outside the box and to take the roads less traveled.

The Sun in Aquarius represents a time when the Ego is introduced into the collective and we start seeing ourselves as part of something bigger — bigger than our homes, families and cities. Bigger than our states and countries. We see ourselves as unique individuals — a tiny and potentially insignificant microcosm — in a much larger and more significant macrocosm, known as humanity.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jan 13, 2020 – Jan 19, 2020:

The week starts on Monday, with the Sun joining up with the Saturn / Pluto conjunction we spoke about last week. This adds another layer to an already powerful astrological configuration that’s been moving into play for several months. There’s no question that Saturn / Pluto aspects relate to power, influence and control. Especially in the ambitious and authoritative sign of Capricorn.

The Sun adds things like Will, Ego and Self-Importance to the mix, and let’s not forget that Mercury is still there as well. So we have five planets in Capricorn with four of them tightly conjunct (within less than 1 degree) and it’s going to be impossible to separate their influences. Power struggles may erupt. We’ll likely see leaders vying for prominence with the potental for ruthlessness to take center stage.

We’ve got a lot going on this week, starting with a mutual reception between Venus and Uranus, a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse in Cancer, Uranus changing direction (going direct) and a triple conjunction involving Mercury, Saturn and Pluto. 

We start things off on Monday, with Jupiter conjuncting the Sourth Niode (and thus automatically opposing the North Node). The Lunar Nodes are karmic in nature and can act as a catalyst for change. Because we are dealijng with the Cancer/ Capricorn polairity, this transit seeks to create balance between our inner and outer worlds.

January 2020 Tarot Scopes -- Ostara Emperor

Aries: The Emperor

This month, with 6 planets in your public / professional sector, it’s going to be time to step up and approach your responsibilities with confidence and authority.

The Emperor card — this version from the Ostara Tarot — is all about power, success, reputation and public standing. But these are all relative terms and are not necessarily related to profession. They’re just as likely tied to responsibilities around the home or within a group of peers.

The message behind this card is one of taking care of business. It’s not the time to be passive or wishy-washy. It’s all about stepping up and taking control of a situation that requires a firm hand and authoritative presence.

You may be asking yourself whether you want to be a small fish in a big pond or a big fish in a small pond. It’s all about gaining perspective and establishing priorities.

As the Emperor also relates to the “Laws of the Land,” some of the less pleasant manifestations of this card include things like being on the receiving end of legal or professional disciplinary actions, dealings with the IRS or government, or having to deal with an oppressive boss or coworker.

Although there are masculine elements to the Emperor card, the references don’t only apply to men. It can refer to a single mother, a career-woman, or a woman with important responsibilities as well. It can also refer to a man in your life (or someone new coming in) who embodies these qualities.

Whether you are a parent doling out “tough love” or a supervisor having to strong arm an employee or just taking back your power in a personal relationship, remember it’s important to temper that with kindness and compassion. Just like the bear in our card, a protective gentle approach is just as important as a firm steady hand.

 

Weekly Astrology Forecast — Dec 30, 2019 – Jan 5, 2020:

Forecast

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.

January 2020 Monthly Horoscopes by Jeanne

Happy New Year! 2020 begins with a nice connection of Mercury with Jupiter, signifying many new ideas for plans, goals, optimism and hope. People from the past could be contacting you between the 4th and the 8th as Mercury and Jupiter connect with the south node. See who shows up for you and what they have to say. It is always interesting when this happens.

The full Moon Lunar eclipse at 20 degrees of Cancer/Capricorn on the 10th changes the dynamic a bit as it is very close to the Saturn Pluto conjunction, which will have a big effect for change in the world.  This may be a rough month to endure as there will be world events that will trigger fear, anger and suspicion in most people. Do your best to remain proactive and positive while double checking your sources for accurate information.

The next 3 months have a lot of volatility for political chaos, earth changes and weather events because of the planetary aspects involved. On January 12th we have Mercury, Sun, Saturn and Pluto all together at 22 degrees of Capricorn making for a rather repressive day followed by Mars making an inconjunct aspect to the north node which can be some kind of power move or explosive event.

The 23rd has the balsamic Moon in conjunction with Saturn and Pluto followed by a new Moon on the 24th. The reflected light of the Moon will return after its dark phase. It’s a good time for your spiritual practices to take a prominent place in your life. With these difficult planetary aspects it is not a positive week to start a new venture or begin a relationship.

The 27th offers a lighter aspect with Venus conjunct Neptune, which has an artistic and inspirational vibration as Venus is in her sign of exaltation, Pisces. Then Mars comes along the next day to square Neptune, which can be an aspect of delusion or deception. This is like being smitten by someone so wonderful on the internet and then being totally disappointed by the reality when you meet them in person. A real wtf was I thinking moment. This month will test us all so remain constant with your spiritual practices and ability to remain centered.

Not to spoil the plot but the year 2020 ends with the grand conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in Capricorn, then still conjunct and moving into Aquarius. This grand conjunction happens approximately every 20 years so it ushers in a big cultural trend/change. The last time it happened in the sign of Capricorn was in February 1961. Better things are ahead!

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Dec 23, 2019 – Dec 29, 2019:

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.
