Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 29, 2018 – Nov 4, 2018:
Venus and Mercury are prominent this week, with each of them changing signs and both of them interacting with other planets on an almost daily basis in the coming days. Venus also appears as a morning star this week, for the first time since early January.
Starting on Monday, there’s a Mercury / Jupiter conjunction appearing in the the night sky, visible on the western horizon, just after the Sun has set. Here we have two natural polarities — the natural rulers of the 3rd and 9th houses — joined together in harmony. We have Mercury — the planet associated with communications and ideas — conjuncting Jupiter — the planet associated with benevolence, good will and generosity.

We start this week with Mercury sextiling Pluto and the Sun inconjuncting Chiron on Monday. The Mercury / Pluto aspect is all about deep thoughts and penetrating insights. But you don’t want to keep these to yourself. The sextile speaks of joining hands with others, and sharing information that causes you to stop and think.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 15, 2018 – Oct 21, 2018:
This week starts with a Venus / Mercury conjunction at 8° Scorpio 50′ on Monday. This aspect is good for communicating with relationship partners and loved ones. It adds a layer of passion and depth to interpersonal relationships, and may see you revealing more about yourself (and your feelings and intentions) than you’d planned.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Oct 8, 2018 – Oct 14, 2018:
This week starts on Monday with all of the personal planets visible in the night sky and a beautiful crescent (Balsamic) Moon visible in the early morning hours. The Moon in Virgo opposes Chiron, with both at Anaretic degrees. Anaretic Degrees are said to be karmic in nature. They represent the culmination of past-life experiences through the progression of each sign, and can manifest as a sense of urgency to tie up loose ends and close the door on the past. This aspect reinforces the effects of the more reflective and visionary Balsamic Moon. It’s a time for contemplation and introspection, especially in the early morning hours.

This week starts with Pluto going stationary direct on Monday, after having spent the last six months in retrograde motion. It’s been retrograde since April 23rd and will turn retrograde again on April 26th, 2019. As Pluto turns direct again you may see suppressed urges and desires returning to the surface (much like the Roman God for which it is named emerges from the underworld in ancient mythology).

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 24, 2018 – Sep 30, 2018:
This week’s highlights include a Full Moon in Aries, Chiron retrograding back into Pisces, and the asteroid Juno moving into Gemini. We start things off on Monday, with a Mercury / Mars trine , just as the Sun inconjuncts Uranus and Saturn inconjuncts the North Node.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 17, 2018 – Sep 23, 2018:
This week starts on Monday, with a first-quarter (and void of course) Moon in Sagittarius. The first-quarter Moon is tied to home, family, security, emotions and needs (among other things). While Sagittarius isn’t particularly comfortable in any of these areas, there are plenty of positive attributes associated with the Sagittarian Moon. Optimism, for one thing. Generosity for another. It’s also good for being truthful about your feelings and for expanding your emotional horizons.
Sep 10 2018
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 10, 2018 – Sep 16, 2018:
This week starts with an inconjunct between Venus and Chiron on Monday. This aspect can put a strain on your love life by forcing you to look at unhealthy relationship patterns, such as mistaking compassion for love or pity for kindness.
This aspect underscores the potential for missing (or misreading) important social cues. As with all inconjunct aspects, the key to rebalancing this energy is adjusting your own perceptions and adapting your own approach.
Sep 03 2018
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Sep 3, 2018 – Sep 9, 2018:
This week’s highlights include a planet (Saturn) changing direction, two planets (Mercury and Venus) changing signs, and a New Moon in Virgo.
Starting on Monday, Mercury sextiles Venus. Mercury and Venus are both well placed, with Mercury in mutual reception to the Sun, and Venus in its own sign. Also, as Mercury is the planet associated with words, ideas, and the exchange of information, and Venus is the planet associated with fairness and cooperation, bringing them together in a harmonious (sextile) aspect can make for some very pleasant conversations.

Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 27, 2018 – Sep 2, 2018:
We start this week with Mars going stationary direct on Monday, at its exact degree of exaltation (28 Capricorn). Mars has been retrograde for the last two months, and while it’s much more comfortable moving forward than it is moving backwards, it will take until October 9th to cross its shadow point.
Aug 19 2018
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 20, 2018 – Aug 26, 2018:
We start the week on Monday, with Mars at the 29th degree of Capricorn, retrograde, out of bounds, and at an anaretic degree. This is a volatile placement for Mars (even though it’s exalted in Capricorn) and should be taken into consideration when making plans or developing expectations.
Aug 13 2018
Here is the Ask the Astrologers Weekly Astro Forecast for the week of Aug 13, 2018 – Aug 19, 2018:
We start the week on Monday with Mars retrograding back into Capricorn, where it will remain for the next three weeks, during which time it turns direct before re-entering Aquarius. Mars has been retrograde since the end of June and will turn direct again on August 28th, but won’t cross its shadow-point until October 10th.
