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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Mar 8, 2021 – Mar 14, 2021:
We start this week on Monday with two semi-sextiles (30° aspects): one involving the Sun and Jupiter and the other involving Mercury and Neptune.
The first one may see you vacillating between your life purpose (Sun) and your ideals (Jupiter). Similar to a pendulum that’s slowing down its momentum and finding its center, the focus shifts from Sun (ego, will, purpose, Self) to Jupiter (expansion, evolution, aspirations, growth) and back again until it finds a place to settle — somewhere in between.

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.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Forecast for the week of Feb 22, 2021 – Feb 28, 2021:
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.
