Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Jun 1, 2020 – Jun 7, 2020:

We’ve got a busy week ahead with a lot of activity involving the personal planets — Mercury, Venus and Mars — and the first of three upcoming eclipses: this one a Full Moon Lunar eclipse in Sagittarius.

For the last several weeks we’ve been dealing with the absence of Earth energy, aside from the Moon’s brief passage through these signs. And this week is no different. None of the main planets are in fire signs (although the Moon does make an appearance in Sagittarius on June 5th).As fire signs are associated with energy, passion, aggression, impatience and anger, we might think we’d have little time for those things. This is obviously not the case!

We start the week with the Moon conjunct the North Node in Cancer on Monday, while Mars sextiles Uranus.The Moon is right at home in Cancer, the sign it naturally rules. Its conjunction to its own North Node occurs at 0° Cancer which could see you wanting to concentrate more on home and family than anything else during this time.

The Moon’s North and South Nodes are naturally retrograde. They spend about a year and a half in each sign as a part of a larger 19+ year cycle. In this case with the Nodes at 0°, they’re spending their last few days in Cancer and Capricorn before moving into Gemini and Sagittarius.

This week starts on Monday with a last quarter (Balsamic) Moon in Aries, which first conjuncts Chiron and then sextiles Mercury before the day is through. The last quarter Moon is tied to the outer world, ie our professional aspirations and public standing. As a result, this is a good time to think about how your actions are aligning with your career goals and reputation.

You may find yourself at a crossroads and needing to make some changes in this area. As the Moon begins waning in light and counting down toward the New Moon on Friday, you’ll have opportunities to reassess and fine tune your social standing. The fact that it’s in Aries is significant in that the Moon’s brief transits through Fire signs will be the only Fire sign activity we’ll see over the next 6 weeks (until Mars moves into Aries on June 30th).

This week we have two planets (Mercury and Mars) changing signs, three planets (Saturn, Venus and Jupiter) and an asteroid (Pallas Athena) all turning retrograde and an out of bounds Venus.

From an astrological perspective, retrogrades motivate us to review, revisit, refine and resolve challenges that are holding us back from progressing in the area related to the planet involved. They may relate to unfinished business from past lives, or they may refer to repeating patterns in our present lifetimes.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of May 4, 2020 – May 10, 2020:

This week it’s going to be one Mercury transit after another, along with a meteor shower, a Full Moon in Scorpio and several planets slowing down as they prepare to turn retrograde. 

Starting on Monday, the Sun conjuncts Mercury and Venus squares Neptune. Starting with the Sun / Mercury aspect, this is a superior conjunction (as Mercury is currently in direct motion). It’s generally a very positive aspect, especially for things like interacting and communicating with others, sharing ideas, and gathering information, But because it’s so close to the Sun that it’s hidden from view (a condition known as “combust”) you want to be aware that not everything that pops into your head during this time is worth acting on.

This week we have a planet (Mercury) and an asteroid (Pallas Athena) changing signs, an out of bounds Venus, and the second of two first quarter Moons. We start with Mercury leaving Aries (thus leaving us without any fire-sign planets for most of the rest of the week) and moves into Taurus on Monday.

Mercury in Taurus is patient, practical and serene. It can be slow and methodical, mainly because it doesn’t see the point in getting its feathers ruffled over things that are likely to iron themselves out over time. 

Mercury is also now in mutual reception with Venus, with each of these planets in the other planet’s ruling sign. The mutual reception can activate the positive energy for both planets, making for enhanced communications, especially where cooperation and collaboration are concerned.

This week we have a New Moon in Taurus, an asteroid (Ceres) changing signs, a planet (Pluto) changing direction, and a handful of hard (square) aspects between personal and transpersonal planets. 

There’s an exact Moon / Jupiter sextile (in Pisces and Capricorn) as we start things off on Monday. Although this is a relatively fleeting aspect — the Moon goes void of course immediately afterwards and then remains thus until it moves into Aries around 7am — it’s still a nice way to start the week.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Apr 13, 2020 – Apr 19, 2020:

This week starts with a (still Full) void of course Moon in Sagittarius on Monday.  This is an expansive and spirited Moon, with a strong focus on personal and spiritual evolution. It inspires us to think about travel, adventure, spirituality, philosophy and higher mind pursuits. It takes us out of our comfort zones and gets us thinking about how the other half lives.

The void of course Moon is not really a big deal. It’s a relatively common occurrence that will most likely fly by imperceptibly; by 1:00 am (UT) it will have moved into Capricorn where it will conjunct its own South Node and square Mercury in the early morning hours. With so many of us practicing social isolation these days, we may have to get creative about pursuing the Sagittarian interests (such as travel, adventure and the outdoors) and the Capricornian interests (such as business and public standing) as well.

This week starts with a first quarter (Gibbous) Moon in Virgo on Monday. As Virgo is the sign associated with humility, productivity, self-improvement and service to others, this Moon is great for shifting our collective focus toward these areas.

It opposes Neptune and Mercury in Pisces straight away, so you don’t want to act on every brilliant idea that pops into your head. The potential for deception — including self-deception is strong. Fortunately it also trines Pluto and Jupiter before moving into Libra where it then trines Saturn before the day is through.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Mar 30, 2020 – Apr 5, 2020:

We start the week with Mars leaving Capricorn behind on Monday and moving into Aquarius, where it will remain for the next 6 weeks (until May 13th). Mars transits bring action and energy to the area of a natal chart where the transit occurs. It also affects planets in a natal chart that it forms aspects to, which are in turn influenced by the sign placement (in this case Aquarius) as well as the house Mars is placed in and rules in the natal chart.

Mars in Aquarius is progressive, innovative, and forward thinking. It can also be eccentric and rebellious. It’s independant and individuated, with things like innovation, open-mindedness and social consciousness among its unique characteristics, It’s a champion for the underdog and not afraid to stand up out for those who have been marginalized or mistreated in some way.

Forecast

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Mar 23, 2020 – Mar 29, 2020:

With Saturn in Aquarius — where it remain until the end of June before it temporarily retrogrades back into Capricorn — it’s no surprise that group and social activities have been limited for many of us. As this is the only planet in an air sign this week, and since it just so happens to be the one associated with limitations and restrictions, those restrictions are likely to be even more pronounced. 

How ironic then that Monday’s two main transits (Mars conjuncting Pluto and Venus sextiling Neptune) are historically linked with sex and intimacy. Among other things. These planets are paired up nicely, with Neptune being the higher octave of Venus and Pluto being the higher octave of Mars. Venus, Mars and Neptune are all also dignified by sign.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Forecast for the week of Mar 16, 2020 – Mar 22, 2020:

We have a lot happening this week, with three planets (Mercury, the Sun and Saturn) and an asteroid (Pallas Athena) changing signs, a five-planet lineup in Capricorn and the first day of Spring. 

Starting on Monday, Mercury — now in direct motion — re-enters Pisces, where it will remain for the next three weeks (until April 12th). It crosses its shadow point (the degree at which it went retrograde) on March 30th. Until that time, even though Mercury is now moving forward again, we can anticipate some of the residual affects of Mercury retrograde — including misunderstandings and miscommunications — especially since Mercury is in the sign most closely associated with the same.
