Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 1, 2021 – Mar 7, 2021:
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.
Feb 15 2021
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.

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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Feb 1, 2021 – Feb 7, 2021:
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.
Jan 24 2021
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.
Jan 17 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Jan 18, 2021 – Jan 24, 2021:
We start this week on Monday, with the Moon — still New — in Pisces, sextiling the Sun and Pluto. These are both relatively mellow transits, with the Pisces Moon bringing empathy, intuition and empathy to the table, with the Sun and Pluto adding elements of will-power and self-control.
The Moon in Pisces is loving, compassionate, and highly impressionable. It can increase psychic awareness and make you more susceptible to outside influences. It’s mystical and ethereal, but can also be incredibly naïve. It’s not good at filtering out negative or harmful information, and can therefore be easily deceived. This is the most sensitive and idealistic Moon there is. So try to put yourself in other people’s shoes and show some compassion during these trying times.
Jan 11 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Jan 11, 2021 – Jan 17, 2021:
We start this week on Monday, with Mercury conjuncting Jupiter and both of them sextiling Chiron. With respect to the Mercury / Jupiter conjunction, we have two natural polarities — the natural rulers of the 3rd and 9th houses — joined together in harmony. We have Mercury — the planet associated with communications and ideas — conjuncting Jupiter — the planet associated with benevolence, good will and generosity.
The sextile to Chiron brings elements like compassion, humility and tolerance to the table, making it a little easier to understand someone else’s point of view. 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 can herald a time for feeling inspired and optimistic about the future.
Jan 04 2021
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Jan 4, 2021 – Jan 10, 2021:
This week we have three planets — Mercury, Venus and Mars — all changing signs. We’re also dealing with an out-of-bounds planet (Mercury) and a stationary planet (Uranus, which will go direct in 10 days, at the exact degree it occupies now), and by week’s end the entire body of planets encased within the North and South Nodes.
Starting on Monday, we have a Moon — still full — in Virgo, which will trine the Sun, Mercury and Pluto, square Venus and oppose Neptune before the day is through. These are mostly productive and discipline transits, with emphasis on work to be done.
Dec 28 2020
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Dec 28, 2020 – Jan 3, 2021:
We start this week with the Sun trining Uranus on Monday. These two planets make up what’s called a planetary pair, as rulers of opposing signs (Leo and Aquarius). Combined with yesterday’s square to Chiron, this is a tricky configuration, as it emphasizes being progressive and innovative on one hand, and struggling with identity and self-expression on the other.
Consider that the Sun is tied to your life force, will and self-expression, while Uranus is tied to thinking outside the box. These two planets in harmonious aspect represent encourage you to march to the beat of your own drum and express your own unique individuality in ways that inspire rather than shock. But the inconjunct to Chiron can manifest as a need to remedy an imbalance between the desire for self-actualization (the Sun) and the urge for self-sacrifice (Chiron).
Dec 20 2020
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Dec 21, 2020 – Dec 27, 2020:
We start this week with the Sun moving into Capricorn on Monday. This marks the onset of Winter (the Winter Solstice) for those in the Northern Hemisphere. From an astronomical perspective, this is the time when the Sun reaches its southernmost declination and manifests as the shortest day and longest night of the year. (It’s exactly opposite for those in the Southern Hemisphere).
Astrologically it represents the Sun (ego, will, Self, etc) entering the sign of the Sea Goat, the archetype known for its ability to rise from the bottom of the deepest sea to the top of the highest mountain. As we tie up the last few days of the year, we may be all thinking “thank God this one is almost over” and making plans to do more, better and bigger next year. That’s the Sun in Capricorn.
Dec 13 2020
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Dec 14, 2020 – Dec 20, 2020:
This week we have four planets (and an asteroid) changing signs, one planet changing direction and a New Moon total solar eclipse. Starting on Monday, Venus sextiles Jupiter and Mercury conjuncts the Moon’s South Node.
The Venus / Jupiter aspect one of the most peaceful and pleasant aspects we could hope for. It’s a sweet, sensitive, gentle transit that can throw you into sugar overload. But it’s also conciliatory. it brings these two planets — known as the lesser and greater benefics — to a consensus. It can go a long ways toward smoothing over disappointments and hurt feelings, making everyone feel included.
