Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 16, 2019 – Sep 22, 2019:
This week starts with Mercury opposing Chiron on Monday. This aspect can bring feelings of guilt and regret to the surface. It can cause you to be more susceptible to deception — including your own. This is not the time to wallow in self-pity or to let your feelings of inadequacy govern your actions.
You could 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 not to fall prey to someone’s sob story. Don’t get caught up in (melo)drama and don’t let your compassion for others cloud your judgment.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 9, 2019 – Sep 15, 2019:
This week we have two planets (Mercury and Venus) changing signs, a Full Moon / Neptune conjunction in Pisces, and a planet (Saturn) stationing as it prepares to go direct.
Starting on Monday, Mars trines Saturn and the North Node while Mercury trines Pluto.The Mars / Saturn trine is not particularly lucky. But it does present opportunities as long as you’re willing to work for them. This is a good time to take plans that have been thoroughly and painstakingly finessed (Saturn) and put them into action (Mars).

We start this week with a Sun / Mars conjunction on Monday, with Venus squaring Jupiter and sextiling the North Node. With Mars so close to the Sun it’s said to be hidden by the Sun’s bright rays, a condition known astrologically as “combust.”
Add to that the Venus aspects — the square to Jupiter, an expansive, indulgent energy, and the sextile to the North Node, a cooperative, conciliatory energy — and this combination of aspects can make for a harmonious, productive day.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 26, 2019 – Sep 1, 2019:
We start this week on Monday with Venus trining Uranus with the Moon in Cancer at their midpoint (and sextiling them both). These two planets in harmonious aspect bring an ease of expression and cooperation to the forefront, particularly in social settings. With Venus in Virgo and Uranus in Taurus, the focus is on comfort and consistency. But with a twist: as Uranus likes to shake things up we might be surprised to see these things take on a whole new meaning for us during this time.
Remember that Venus is still conjunct the Sun (and in mutual reception with Mercury) so there’s also a lot of emphasis on originality and individuality. This is a progressive, forward-thinking, trend-setting configuration that encourages creative self-expression. As such, it’s a good time to change things up a bit, especially in how you present yourself to the outer world.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 19, 2019 – Aug 25, 2019:
This week we have three planets and an asteroid (Juno) in Leo all moving into Virgo. Venus and Mars are also still combust, or hidden from view. Mercury is visible, in the early morning skies while Jupiter and Saturn are visible at night. The Moon is still full — in Aries — on Monday, forming a conjunction to Chiron, a semi-sextile to Uranus and a trine to Mercury before the day is through.
These are all relatively benign aspects but because the Moon is in Aries — the sign associated with action, energy, motivation and drive — we may be chomping at the bit to get things moving. The Moon in Aries is lively, free-spirited and adventurous. It’s wide-open to to the world of possibilities, facing whatever comes its way without fear or trepidation.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 12, 2019 – Aug 18, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with Uranus going stationary retrograde, where it will remain for the next five months. As with all retrogrades, the planetary energy is turned inward, making those sudden flashes of Uranian brilliance and insight all the more real.
Uranus is known as the “great awakener” and loves to shake things up — just to make sure we’re paying attention. It’s a naturally rebellious archetype, but the retrograde makes it less about bucking the system and more about challenging our own deeply personal ideals. Uranus will retrograde back to 2º Taurus 39, before it turns direct and starts moving forward again (on January 12, 2020).
Aug 04 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 5, 2019 – Aug 11, 2019:
This week we have a planet (Mercury) changing signs, a planet (Jupiter) changing direction and what promises to be a spectacular light show (the Perseid Meteor Showers) by week’s end.
Starting on Monday though, the Moon is still New in Libra, where it is known for fairness, impartiality and objectivity. Those things should come ion hand, since it forms several stressful aspects: including an opposition to Chiron, square to Saturn and inconjunct to Uranus. Fortunately, there’s also a sextile to Jupiter, and a trine to Venus and the Sun before the day is through.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 29, 2019 – Aug 4, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon and Mercury in mutual reception and the Sun trining Chiron. The Moon / Mercury reception can translate as an insatiable thirst for knowledge and an ability to impart both guidance and wisdom to others. It’s capable of listening as well as speaking and gathering information for later use.
This aspect is curious, observant and insightful. It’s capable of seeing things that others cannot see. Its unique vantage point allows it to rise above petty grievances and broaden its perspective.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 22, 2019 – Jul 28, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with a Moon — still full — in Pisces, which trines Venus, Mercury and the Sun before the day is through. The Moon in Pisces is loving, compassionate, creative 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 naive.It’s not good at filtering out negative or harmful information, and can therefore be easily deceived.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 15, 2019 – Jul 21, 2019:
We’ve got a lot going on this week, with a planet (Mercury) changing signs, an asteroid (Ceres) changing direction, a Full Moon and a partial lunar eclipse.
There is a Gibbous (waxing) Moon in Capricorn as we start the week on Monday. Although the Moon is said to be debilitated in Capricorn (the sign of its detriment), there are many favorable attributes associated with this Moon. There is a wisdom and maturity associated with this Moon, as well as an ability to organize, prioritize and simplify.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 8, 2019 – Jul 14, 2019:
We start this week with Mercury going retrograde (and conjuncting Mars) in Cancer on Monday. With respect to Mercury turning retrograde, we all know that Mercury-ruled things can go a little haywire during this time. Communications tend to run amok, plans get turned on their head, communications devices (computers, electronics, cell-phones, etc) and written communications (emails, texts, letters, etc.) get lost or misconstrued. It’s not a good time to sign contracts or legal documents and not a good time to purchase Mercury-ruled items (automobiles, televisions, computers and so on).

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jul 1, 2019 – Jul 7, 2019:
We start this week on Monday, with a semi-sextile between Uranus and Chiron. This transit has been moving in and out of orb for several months. It emphasizes the focus on social activism and humanitarian impulses. It bridges the gap between recognizing social injustices (Uranus) and taking steps to heal them (Chiron).
Also on Monday, we have both Mars and Venus getting ready to leave their respective signs and move into the next. Mars is not a happy camper at this time: it’s void of course, at an anaretic (29th) degree and debilitated by sign (Cancer, the sign of its Fall). At its worst, Mars in Cancer can be irritable, moody, defensive and passive aggressive. But at its best, it is a champion for the underdog; it can act as a guardian angel, taking up the fight for those who are weak or vulnerable.
