Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 28, 2019 – Nov 3, 2019:
We start this week with a New Moon at 4º Scorpio 25 on Monday. As New Moons always represent new beginnings and opportunities to start anew, this one — in Scorpio — presents opportunities for deep personal connections with others, as well as a chance to explore the inner workings of our own psyches.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 21, 2019 – Oct 27, 2019:
This week starts on Monday with the Moon in Cancer (opposite Pluto) and a Venus / Neptune trine. Although the Moon is dignified in Cancer (as the sign it naturally rules), the opposition to Pluto can intensify emotional reactions, especially the more uncomfortable emotions, like jealousy, mistrust and even paranoia.
It’s a relatively fleeting aspect, which should be overshadowed by the much more pleasant Venus / Neptune trine. This spect asserts a idealized version of love, beauty, romance and compassion for others. It can bring you closer to loved ones, and see you feeling so connected to them that it’s hard to tell where you end and they begin. As a result, you may feel so in sync with those who hold a special place in your heart that you know exactly what they need to feel appreciated during this time.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 14, 2019 – Oct 20, 2019:
This week starts with a Sun / Pluto square and a Mercury / Saturn sextile on Monday. The Sun / Pluto square can be extremely volatile. It can erupt into power struggles or confrontations with others. Intense anger (rage), trust issues and overreactions are all potential manifestations of this transit, which can fortunately be tempered by the Mercury/ Saturn aspect.
Mercury sextile Saturn makes it a little easier to “get a grip” and see things from a more rational perspective. It puts the Sun / Pluto paranoia under a microscope and forces you to see things as they are rather than jumping to conclusions. It forces you to rely on facts rather than conjecture and can get you thinking logically rather than irrationally.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 7, 2019 – Oct 13, 2019:
Things could be a bit tense at the start of this week with two stressful transits — the Sun squaring Saturn and Mercury opposite Uranus on Monday. The Sun / Saturn square may see you feeling like the Universe is raining on your parade, at least temporarily. It can indicate a sense of feeling trapped or prohibited from accomplishing your goals.
It represents limitations, obstacles and restrictions and may see you feeling like “what’s the use” with one roadblock after another standing in your way. But shake it off or ride it out — this is a short-lived transit that generally feels much heavier than it actually is.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 30, 2019 – Oct 6, 2019:
We’ve got a lot going on this week, with two planets (Mercury and Mars) changing signs, a planet (Pluto) changing direction, and a stellium of planets (five in all — if you include the still-New Moon) in Libra by week’s end.
The Libra Moon is nestled in between Venus and Mercury at the beginning of the week (on Monday) setting the tone for pleasant and amicable conversations. This is a graceful, conciliatory aspect that seeks to set aside differences and bring people together in harmony. While it’s a relatively fleeting transit, a lot can be accomplished through tact, diplomacy and skillful communications during this time.
Sep 23 2019
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 23, 2019 – Sep 29, 2019:
We usher in the Autumnal Equinox this week (Spring Equinox for those in the Southern Hemisphere) on Monday, as the Sun moves into Libra. From a symbolic standpoint, the Equinox is associated balance and harmony. It’s also associated with with reaping what we have sewn and harvesting what we have grown. It speaks of conserving our energy and making preparations for the longer colder nights.
With the day (consciousness and intention) and night (intuition and emotion) momentarily equal, the ability to synchronize our own inner rhythms is unparalleled during this time. This is reinforced by the fact that the Sun has moved into Libra, which shifts our collective consciousness toward thoughts of fairness and impartiality. The Sun in Libra is objective and open-minded, willing to weigh all sides of an argument and listen to all points of view.
Sep 16 2019
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.
Sep 09 2019
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).

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 2, 2019 – Sep 8, 2019:
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.
Aug 19 2019
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.
Aug 11 2019
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).
