Most likely, low transmission fluid or a bad transmission control solenoid. A long shot, but it could be a faulty speed sensor. You need to have the transmission serviced. But there might be a mechanical problem inside, or a control problem. A transmission expert can tell you, but this isn't anything a novice could figure out.
