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).

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.

The month begins with Mercury in direct motion and the Moon gaining in light after its new phase on 7/31. What a relief to have Mercury moving forward again but at 23 degrees 57’ of Cancer it still makes an opposition to Pluto so the correction of the things that went awry during the last 3 weeks may have an urgency some of us may not enjoy. This, too, shall pass after the 7th when Mercury moves out of orb of that aspect.
Venus is in Leo through the 21st. She is combust the Sun by exact degree on the 11th and then travels between the Sun and Mars through the 24th after which she starts to pull ahead of Mars in the sign Virgo. This can mean a bit of a rocky time ahead for relationships and any Venusian endeavor as her rays are harmed by all that heat from the Sun and Mars. Don’t get too pushy with women during this time as they aren’t having any of it.
The global heat wave will likely continue through the month as well. Mars is also combust the Sun on the 18th and into the early days of September. This agitates and heats up men and the masculine vibration so there will be lots of saber rattling and angry threats flying around. Testy times ahead for much of this month.
Jupiter goes into direct motion on the 11th at 14 degrees 30’ of Sagittarius which should bring in much needed feelings of hope and optimism. Uranus goes retrograde on the same day at 6 degrees 36’ of Taurus, giving a shaky feeling to earthy and stable Taurus. In fact, the earth could be quite quaky at this time.
Saturn is still retrograde in Capricorn as is Pluto. Fortunately, they are separating from each other so the intensity of the fear vibe that’s been present for months will ease up a bit. They join together in early 2020 so learn how to effectively cope with that fear vibe now so you will have a strategy in place when the are conjunct in the new year. Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real. Remember that love is stronger than fear!
Neptune, not to be forgotten, is still retrograde at 18 degrees of Pisces making water issues ever present worldwide. This is as it should be as all living things need water to survive on this planet. Protect the water and get involved in causes that do so.

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.

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.

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.

July begins the unusual cosmic energy for the month with a new Moon Solar Eclipse on the 2nd at 10 degrees, 38 ‘of Cancer, a feminine, cardinal water sign. Both protective and emotional, Cancer is a caregiver sign. The nurturing Divine Mother energy that defends its beliefs and brings comfort to others is embodied with this sign and with this eclipse.
Mars and Mercury in neighboring Leo, provide bold communication occasions until Mercury goes retrograde on July 7th at 4 degrees of Leo and begins to separate from this collision, moving back to 24 degrees of Cancer on August 1st. This further reinforces the Cancer theme of the month. This is prickly energy as Mars in Leo agitates Mercury and that provocation can manifest as words that are cutting and cruel while Cancer is hypersensitive and reactive.
Venus enters the sign of Cancer on July 3rd which underlines the role of the feminine nurturing principle as well. Venus is in this sign until the 29th so the month emphasizes females and their skills and talents. Jupiter remains retrograde in its own sign of Sagittarius reminding people of just causes and fairness in one’s dealings. Saturn is partnered by degree with the south Node of the Moon and only 5 degrees away from Pluto so there is still some destructive energy in the circles of business and power. Uranus, at almost 6 degrees of Taurus which agitates the status quo and offers new lessons in remaining centered in unstable times. It is a great time to be generous and kind to others, especially those in need.

We start the week on Monday, with Venus squaring Neptune and inconjuncting Saturn. The Venus / Neptune square can translate as unrealistic expectations and wishful thinking — especially regarding romantic interests. You may have to check yourself if you find yourself spending too much time daydreaming or wondering “what if?” This transit is prone to flights of fantasy and can be downright delusional. It’s not the time to put your stock in people who haven’t proven themselves or who have engaged in dubious practices in the past.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Jun 17, 2019 – Jun 23, 2019:
We start this week with Neptune trining the North Node (and sextiling the South Node) on Monday. This transit can bring people in that you’re working through past-life karma with (South Node) or creating new karma with (North Node). Of course these are often one and the same.
Pay attention to new people coming in during this time, as well as interactions that trigger you emotionally. These are harmonious aspects (trine and sextile) that should make for pleasant interactions with others, as well as opportunities to work together.
