Transiting Mars and Saturn Conjunct in First House Scorpio, A Personal Narrative

By Milky Way Maid
Experiencing a Mars and Saturn conjunction this year was a first-ever event for me. My ascendant is Scorpio, which is just where the conjunction was to occur. I thought maybe there was some chance of an accident, but I did not feel particularly fearful.
First let’s get some details out of the way.
The Mars-Saturn conjunction was on August 25, 2014, at 17 degrees Scorpio. The exact time was 3:30 pm Eastern. Coincidentally, there was a New Moon that day: 2 degrees 19′ of Virgo at 10:13 am. Mars and Saturn sextiled Mercury earlier in the day. Also, four days later (Aug. 29) the Sun opposed Neptune which was at 6 degrees Pisces.
None of these points were conjunct any natal planets, but 17 degrees Scorpio closely opposes my natal Sun and applies to my natal North Node – the latter seems to be rather auspicious. The New Moon was sextile my natal Ascendant and trine natal Mars. So the outlook seemed to be on the whole pretty positive, even if I had trouble guessing what kind of event might take place.
ALSO- 17 degrees Scorpio is exactly square my natal Chiron in Aquarius. Chiron in Aquarius has accounted for some arthritis in the knees and other ailments and injuries in that area. This time around, the square to Chiron seems to indicate a surgical intervention of some kind, but I thought some other transiting aspects referred to a series of injections to the knees that started in August. Turns out, I was in for some other surgeries besides those injections, even though they were all quite minor. Minor, yes, but for me it was very unusual to have such a cluster of medical interventions.

Ripped from the Headlines: Jupiter in Leo 2014

By Milky Way Maid
Now that Jupiter is firmly in Leo, it is fun to see ways in which Jove (and Venus too) are beaming their positive rays on that sign.
I noticed an article in a recent copy of the Wall Street Journal that detailed how two companies were returning bountiful profits for investors. What companies were they? Two movie studios – MGM and Lion’s Gate!!!
How perfect is that? MGM’s trademark is the iconic Leo the Lion roaring a greeting at the start of each film, and Lion’s Gate, well that one is obvious, too, with the name of the animal that represents the sign Leo.
MGM has seen huge box-office receipts on the strength of films like the James Bond thriller “Skyfall” and “The Hobbit- An Unexpected Journey.” Each one brought in over one billion dollars, and continues to sell tickets overseas. MGM also has the TV show “21 Jump Street” and a deep catalog of films in its library to sell copies in international channels and digital services, according to the WSJ.
This is a major turnaround since it was forced to file bankruptcy in 2010.
MGM was born on April 17, 1924. I was surprised to see so much cardinal energy in their chart. The Sun is at 27 degrees Aries, square Mars at 25 degrees Capricorn (a strong placement for that planet), opposite Saturn exalted in Libra (29 degrees), and trine its North Node at 29 degrees Leo, a perfect placement for an entertainment business.
Not only is the T-square a strong driver for the chart, the planets involved are also in the very late degrees of the signs. Let’s see, what did I write about late degrees of these signs?
The Sun in a late degree of Aries denotes someone that is a pioneer in some way, and MGM was very much a pioneer. It had not only the most glamourous collection of stars (with names like Clark Gable, Carole Lombard, the Jeanette MacDonald-Nelson Eddy musicals, Spencer Tracy, Myrna Loy, Greta Garbo, Joan Crawford and many more), it also boasted several firsts. While it was one of the last studios to adopt sound, it was the first to make a complete film in Technicolor with sound (The Viking), as well experimenting with it for portions of Ben-Hur and a few other films. They also virtually owned the big-budget musical segment of the film industry.
Mars in late Capricorn has high energy, which would have made for an excellent athlete in an individual chart. Any planet in late Capricorn is powerful for building a business, especially a business that survives the death of the founder. And indeed, the fact that this company is 90 years old and still going strong is a testament to a strong Mars here.
Saturn in late Libra: Saturn in Libra is exalted anyway, meaning that it is strong, and the energies of that planet find ease in expressing itself in a positive way. Venus-ruled Libra is known for famous dancers and other entertainers. Famous dancers with a planet in late Libra include Ben Vereen, Fayard Nicholas, Arthur Duncan, and Juliet Prowse. Libra looks for the beautiful and tends to shun the gritty side of life. This was the philosophy of co-founder Louis B. Mayer, who preferred the glorious color and musical spectaculars like Show Boat, the Andy Hardy films, The Ten Commandments, An American in Paris (1951), Singin’ in the Rain (1952), Seven Brides for Seven Brothers (1954) and Brigadoon.
And having the North Node at 29 degrees Leo would be an obvious boon for any company in the entertainment industry, and for major growth and even dominance in the minds of the public. It did not hurt that its Stable of Stars included The King, Clark Gable! MGM gets a boost from both Jupiter and Venus transiting Leo, contacting the natal Neptune (glamour) at 17 degrees and the North Node at 29 degrees.
MGM emerged from bankruptcy in December 2010, when Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn passed the square to natal Moon at 3 Libra and natal Ceres at 3 Aries. During the lean years, Neptune was opposing its natal place in Leo; now that Neptune is transiting Pisces, that transit no longer depresses box-office receipts.
Lion’s Gate profits have rested on properties like the “Hunger Games” franchise (with two more in the works). Lion’s Gate’s birth date is listed as July 3, 1997.
The Lion’s Gate natal chart also has a strong cardinal component, with Sun at 11 degrees Cancer, the Moon at zero degrees Cancer, Mercury at 21 degrees Cancer, Mars at 6 degrees Libra, Saturn at 19 degrees Aries, and Neptune (glamour) at 29 degrees Capricorn. Neptune is the only planet at a strong late degree, and promises that the company will survive through thick and thin.
Transits that have lifted its fortunes: the main one is the progressed Moon (now at 9 degrees Aquarius) has recently conjuncted natal Uranus at 7 degrees Aquarius; this would account for lucking onto the Hunger Games franchise, with its strange, even bizarre public appeal. The other is that progressed Sun at 28 Cancer opposes natal Neptune, added a high gloss of glamour to its offerings.
A caveat to those interested in investing in the company now: progressed Mars is applying to an opposition to natal Saturn. That seems to me to be a negative for financials, especially in regard to handling debts and commissions. In the short term, Jupiter in Leo will contact the natal Venus at 6 Leo, and sextile natal Mars at 6 Libra; that should prop up the business in the short term; once Jupiter leaves Leo though, public appeal will probably deflate in short order.

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

Venus at 7 degrees Leo is conjunct Jupiter at 1:21 am Monday. Zowie, the greater and the lesser benefics conjoin in the wee hours of Monday! Be sure to have an application or request on file wherever you need a break– at an employer, with the bank loan officer, at your lawyer’s if you need a case dismissed, etc. Propose to the love of your life.

Mercury at 6 degrees Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces at 11:42 pm Monday. A very bad transit for doing any sort of sales, signing contracts, and the like. You must go over any important paperwork with a fine-toothed comb, correcting errors. And even if you are making every effort to do these things while under the transit, you will look at the same paper later and find still more errors. Be cautious when dealing with sales people, who often say anything in order to make the sale and get their commission. Scammers excel under this transit, as they practically hypnotize their victims with emotionally-loaded words repeated like a chant. We may be fearful (Neptune) when reading headlines or when dealing with inoffensive clerks and other service people. On another level, we may speak about ideals and the Perfect World that we hope one day all humanity will live in – a place that we might remain cynically about as we notice all the vice and chicanery that goes on in the Real World. We can only make the world a little bit better, or a lot worse, so make your decision and hold to it the best you can.

Mercury at 11 degrees Virgo trines Pluto in Capricorn at 3:19 pm Thursday. A fine transit that favors having a productive chat with your mentor or a wise elder. Take your Uncle Jake out for a late lunch or a stop at the watering hole. Pluto helps Mercury to focus on details, whether in examining a crime scene, a ledger, legal transcripts, or the latest mystery novel. We might waste this transit in wondering about the hidden agendas of whomever, but you can really get a lot done with Pluto wanting to check off everything on the to-do list.

The Sun enters Virgo at 12:46 am Saturday. Virgo natives are generally lifetime students, always looking to feed their minds with a class, a lecture, or stimulating discussion. Analytical to a fault, they often miss the forest for the trees. Cool, emotionally reserved, often shy, humble, very willing to serve humanity with their talents, good with detail, health-oriented, keeps a balanced checkbook, and a perpetual dieter. This is not the person you go to if you need someone to be self-sacrificing, although they may loan you a garden tool or a book. Famous people with Sun in Virgo include: Leonard Bernstein, Henry Ford II, Greta Garbo, Cardinal Richelieu, Andy Roddick, violinist Itzhak Perlman, Mary Cunningham Agee, Peter Ueberroth, Jeff Foxworthy, Patsy Cline, Arnold Palmer, D H Lawrence, Ben Savage, William Howard Taft, and LBJ.

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

Venus enters Leo at 3:24 am Tuesday. Venus in Leo has a flair for dramatic style and fashion impact, putting together outfits that would be comfortable on the street or on the runway. Leo has a high need for approval, and when Venus is here, he may withhold those sunny rays if he fears being ignored or judged harshly. But a confident Leo-Venus sheds his warm and gregarious rays on all and sundry, who are mostly charmed by him. Famous people with Venus in Leo include: poet Percy Shelley, author Leo Tolstoy, golfer Arnold Palmer, Merv Griffin, actress Greta Garbo, playwright G B Shaw, Leonard Bernstein, author Truman Capote, and architect Eero Saarinen.
Mars at 11 degrees Scorpio sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 5:25 am Friday. Mars energy is able to dig deep for a second effort, whether at sports or career goals, or at playing detective in a frustrating mystery. It’s good for any type of investigative or forensic work, such as science, criminology, medicine, accounting, or journalism.
Mercury enters its second home-sign Virgo at 12:44 pm Friday. What is the difference between Mercury in Gemini and Mercury in Virgo? In Gemini, the fleet one is endlessly busy with facts and figures, phone calls and short trips (such as with merchandising or sales). The fleet one in Virgo is more service-oriented; it is the librarian who looks up a fact for you, the nurse who follows the protocol for carrying out the doctor’s orders, the secretary who makes your appointments, and the teacher who tries to make you write a good paragraph. Virgos have a problem with trying to attain perfection and rejecting everything with the slightest flaw. Now look, Virg, we mere mortals cannot be expected to produce perfection all the time because we are after all merely human!!! So get over it! Famous people with Mercury in Virgo include: president LBJ, Dag Hammarskjold, comedienne Lucille Ball, pianist Vladimir Horowitz, golfer Ben Hogan, actress Geraldine Chaplin and Pope Paul VI.
I am considering dropping the weekly horoscope format in favor of regular articles on transits or people in the news. I have written the weekly horoscope for about 7 years now, and it is getting harder and harder to stay motivated to continue. Thank you to all the readers over the last 7 years, and stay tuned for a changeover to a slightly different format.

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

Mars at 6 degrees Scorpio trines Neptune in Pisces at 8:14 am Thursday. Mars-Neptune trines often are very idealistic, very other worldly. Other people laugh off ideas under this transit as totally impractical, but sometimes a brilliant innovation in implementing it makes it totally workable. Mars with Neptune also can be quite creative in artistic expression, such as dance and poetry.
The Sun at 16 degrees Leo joins Mercury at 12:21 pm Friday. This is a key economic turning point, so keep an eye on what the stock market does. Do prices go up or down or sideways? Mercury getting a trine from Uranus may mean that more foreign funds come into the market, propping up prices. Sun and Mercury soon square Saturn, which may mean some kind of obstacle puts a fly in that ointment. The trine especially favors solid intuitive insights. You might try a bit of remote viewing, picturing a place you have been meaning to go to, and then compare your actual visit to your remote visit to see you accurate your were.
Mercury in turn trines Uranus in Aries at 4:14 pm Friday. We succeed in spreading the word via electronic or computer-based media. So go ahead and post to your blog, leave comments on articles online, start that media-managing project you had in mind these last few weeks.
Then the Sun trines Uranus in Aries at 8:36 pm Friday. You get some positive feedback for expressing your individuality. Maybe you take the stage on open mic night, and a bit of applause stokes your ego.
Finally Mercury at 16 degrees Leo squares Saturn in Scorpio at 10:50 pm Friday. You may act like an authority on a pet subject, but let’s hope you have some actual cred regarding your chosen topic.
The Sun at 16 degrees Leo squares Saturn at 11:11 am Saturday. This aspect is usually associated with having to account for oneself or one’s actions. This sometimes occurs as a result of getting a ticket or arrest that requires you to appear in court and explain things to a judge. Sometimes it is merely being called in to chat with the boss about your performance. So the message is, watch your self and ask if you would likely be questioned about it if seen by someone in authority.
Vesta enters Scorpio this week. Emma Donath says that this can spur a total regeneration of the personality, possibly accompanied by psychic talents. Scorpio can become more exacting in demands they place on themselves, as well as of others. If Scorpio is your ascendant, they latch onto a higher goal in life, kind of like a Holy Grail, something that is more of a spiritual quest than a mere hunt for material gains.

Your Milky Way Horoscope JULY 27-AUG. 2, 2014

By Milky Way Maid

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

Happy Birthday to Leos out there! More celebs with Sun in Leo: Tom Robbins, Anthony Kennedy, Maxfield Parrish, Mick Jagger, Beatrix Potter, Frankie Yankovic, David Baldacci, Louis Leakey, Sylvia Sidney, Cecil B DeMille, Annie Oakley, Tim Tebow, Meriweather Lewis.

Venus at 11 degrees Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn at 2:37 am Monday. Venus and Pluto aspects sometimes affect a “soul mate” relationship. With the opposition, there are obstacles or one party rejects the other party. Sometimes the opposition indicates intense soul-searching about what kind of life you want, as well as what kind of love you want.

Mercury enters kingly Leo at 6:46 pm Thursday. Mercury in Leo tends to be rather arrogant – he’s always right because he’s the king, you know. At any rate, when this Leo talks it comes off sounding dictatorial, which makes communication rather one-sided and unsuccessful. However, if one’s message is couched in Leo’s talent for dramatic impact, then communication can be very successful. Leo can sure leave a lasting impression! This Mercury also wants to hear expressions of loyalty. Mercury in Leo does have the advantage of combining the mind with the heart, which makes what he says go straight to the listener’s heart. With his personal charisma, he could be a very popular speaker. Famous people with Mercury in Leo include: author Ernest Hemingway, Napoleon, Beatle Ringo Starr, former talk-show host Merv Griffin, Louis Armstrong aka Satchmo, Fidel Castro, painter Marc Chagall, baseball manager Casey Stengel, and Paul Tillich.

Venus at 16 degrees Cancer squares Uranus in Aries at 12:43 am Friday. First, let’s be clear: Venus can be love or it can be money. Taking the latter first, this transit can bring sudden expenses or sudden windfalls. You may have difficulties re finances: declare bankruptcy, change or lose jobs, or conversely, win a lottery. With love, you may fall in love with the charming stranger or foreigner, or get a proposal of marriage. The square unfortunately indicates too many obstacles for this to be a lasting alliance– maybe he/she is at that party with another date, which he/she is eager to ditch for an interesting dinner with you.

Venus at 16 degrees Cancer trines Saturn in Scorpio at 6:22 am Friday. Obviously this is related to the issues stated above under the Venus-Uranus square. Regarding finances, it is very positive because you are more inclined to stick to your budget, or set up a savings plan. We find a safe investment for our money. Regarding romance, we are comfortable with an older person, or we are happy to link up with someone who is financially stable.

Mars at 3 degrees Scorpio squares Jupiter in Leo at 6:47 pm Friday. Any aspect between Mars and Jupiter can be lucky; the square indicates that we have to make some focused effort to get there because nothing is going to fall into our lap. We are extra competitive at sports or in business, going deep down for that second effort that wins the game. There may be some risk involved, such as with placing a bet on a sporting event, or sinking cash into a start-up. We tend to win more than we lose under this transit, so we feel we are on a roll.

On Saturday, Mercury gets busy – it conjoins Jupiter at 3 degrees Leo at 3:33 pm, while squaring Mars at 3 degrees Scorpio at 8:01 pm. Mercury square Mars is very argumentative, and in Leo it takes on the manner of issuing a royal edict! However, with the conjunction to Jupiter, this Leo may just be right about the facts.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. NOTE: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.

ARIESMarch 20-April 19 – Venus in Cancer in your solar fourth house opposes Pluto Monday; balancing career and family gets tricky, and you may be forced into an either-or decision. Mercury enters your solar fifth house Thursday; try to remember to put your heart into what you say, especially when speaking to children or a romantic interest. Friday can be very lucky for you if playing games of chance or betting on sports, or even if you are competing in some kind of games. Might be best if you took a quick-pick or let someone else invest for you.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 - Venus in Cancer in your solar third house opposes Pluto Monday; balancing time for friends near and far can get tricky, especially if you are considering a move overseas or going back to university.

Mercury enters your solar third house Thursday; try to remember to put your heart into what you say, especially when speaking to relatives or clerks. Best days are Thursday morn – when ruler Mercury helps you reach people you need to talk to – and Saturday afternoon – when you see the larger pattern and act accordingly.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 – Venus in your sign opposes Pluto Monday; balancing Self and demands by others can get very tricky, especially if your mate demands all your time and attention. Friday pm can be very lucky for you if betting on sports or taking some kind of risk, so sharpen up your basketball free-throw game and team-picking skills. You may have to accept a delay in college or publishing plans for a couple months, until Ceres and Vesta have made things ready for your plans.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from Sunday till very late Monday. You may enjoy feeling the wind in your hair while driving Sunday night, but watch out for the local speed trap, hmm? The Moon is void all day Monday so stick to routine matters. Mercury enters your sign Thursday; try not to sound arrogant, but do put your heart into what you say. Ceres and Vesta enter your solar fourth house for a couple months; you may spend the summer away from home, or family members may take off for assorted jobs or courses.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – Venus in Cancer in your solar eleventh house opposes Pluto Monday; balancing time for friends and creative expression gets tricky, and some friends may drop you. The Moon is in Virgo from 11:37 pm Monday till midday Thursday. You manage to reach friends by phone Thursday morning so touch base and confirm lunch dates.

Your audience is too confused for a good post-lunch meeting Tuesday. Best day is Wednesday morn when you introduce a dear friend to a wise old relative or neighbor. You manage to get hold of a friend by phone Thursday morn.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 12:09 pm Thursday till Saturday night. Thursday night favors spending good times with boon companions. Early risers on Friday can share a congenial breakfast while getting shopping and budget tips. Friday dinner is at a sporting venue, which may be a lucky night for you. Saturday shows lots of activity with friends, possibly at some kind of fund-raising event for a non-profit. You may have to be very strict about budgeting for the next two months and forego luxuries, in order to pay off some debt or save for something special.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – Your solar ninth house is very active this week; you may meet people from other countries or who have an accent, and enjoy hearing their impressions of the USA. These will probably be short-term relationships, possibly through work contracts or something like that. Mercury enters your solar tenth house Thursday; you could be interviewed for a job this month, or sound like a boss. The Moon enters Scorpio at 10:57 pm Saturday. Ooh, the midnight hour belongs to Scorpio anyway. Ceres and Vesta enter your sign the latter part of the week; you need time to yourself, when you can nurture and care for yourself like a hothouse orchid.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – Best day may be Sunday although the evening may have its ups and down, like a thrilling roller coaster ride. Mercury enters compatible Leo on Thursday; you have to sound confident and in command of all the facts if you go to court (or talk to a publisher); however guard against sounding arrogant, and remember to put your heart behind your words. Friday also throws some surprises your way regarding friends and finances. Saturday favors a campus visit, online if you are considering free enrichment courses.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – Your solar seventh house of partners and the public is active this week. Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto Monday; balancing Self and demands by others can get very tricky, especially if your mate demands all your time and attention. Best day may be Wednesday morn when an older friend is involved. Friday may find you getting rather too interested in a charming foreigner. Joint finances are accented Saturday; you might serve as teller or croupier at your casino-night party.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 - Mercury enters your solar seventh house Thursday; try to remember to put your heart into what you say, especially when speaking to business partners or your spouse. Best day is probably Friday, when ruler Saturn is trined by lovely Venus; you add a layer of charm to your ambition, and are able to schmooze with the higher-ups like a pro. Ceres and Vesta enter your solar tenth house late this week; you may be passed over for promotion, but the time is just not right yet. Just be patient and work on skills you will need for the big job.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 - Venus in Cancer in your solar fifth house opposes Pluto Monday; balancing time for friends and creative expression gets tricky, and some friends may drop you. Mercury enters your solar sixth house Thursday; try to remember to put your heart into what you say, especially when speaking to coworkers or people in uniform. Best day may be Saturday when your ruler Jupiter joins Mercury and you feel extra playful and competitive.

Your Milky Way Horoscope JULY 20-26, 2014

By Milky Way Maid

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

A busy week this last full week of July! Planets making stations, planets changing signs, plus a New Moon! Read on for more.

Saturn is Stationary Direct at 4:36 pm Sunday. It is at 16 degrees 39′ Scorpio. During the retrograde phase we restructured some parts of our lives (or should have). We should have decided to take responsibility for our actions, and for the results of those actions. Setting boundaries is another side of Saturn, a necessary task if we are to avoid being used by others. We might set up a more demanding schedule for ourselves, something that requires more of us than just keeping up with mundane chores. Fixed signs like Scorpio are usually pretty stubborn, and Saturn going direct in such a sign helps you to stick to your guns, aim at a goal, and follow through on promises.
Uranus is Stationary Retrograde at 10:53 pm Monday. It is at 16 degrees 30′ Aries, which is coincidentally inconjunct the Saturn station the day before; inconjuncts sometimes mean things come out of nowhere – life pulls the rug out from under us. Uranus stations tend to make things pretty chaotic for a few days. The Uranus retrograde makes us think twice about doing something outrageous, which may be a good thing. And yet we might plow ahead and go out of our way to upset an apple cart or two. If it contacts a natal planet, we may have trouble finding our niche in life; the energies of that planet contacted may be frustrated. We feel that we are different; well of course we are unique in some way, but we feel we are so different that the society has no place for us. At the very least, we feel uncomfortable about the status quo and start wishing things were different. Dane Rudhyar says the Uranus retrograde involves some kind of Visitation from the Spirit, as the individuality unfolds to a truer expression of the light within.
Mercury at 11 degrees Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn at 2:47 am Tuesday. This sounds like a great transit for research, or for grilling someone for information. You can drill down through layers of data to find the telling details that solve a puzzle.
The Sun enters its home in Leo at 5:41 pm Tuesday. It promptly conjoins Jupiter at 4:44 pm Thursday. Sun in Leo is spontaneous, outgoing, vain, attention-getting, a glutton for approval, and loves to be made a fuss over. But when they turn the spotlight on others, their warmth brings out the Leo in them, too. Likes to be in a position of authority, and makes a good manager in spite of being bored with details and repetition. Leos are magnetic as they draw others to them, especially pulling guests into their home for very entertaining parties. Famous people with the Sun in Leo include: Jackie Kennedy Onassis, poet Percy Shelley, playwright George Bernard Shaw, Napoleon, comedienne Lucille Ball, chef Julia Child, Fidel Castro, James Baldwin, baseball manager Casey Stengel, Paul Tillich, Eero Saarinen, Mussolini, aviator Amelia Earhart, rocker Mick Jagger, David Baldacci, Annie Oakley, director Cecil B DeMille, sprinter Usain Bolt, and Fritz Freleng.
Sun conjunct Jupiter: Natives with this transit expand their horizons in some way, whether by travel, a new job, gaining a more optimistic outlook, studying philosophy or law, or widening their network of contacts. Sometimes they become the star of the show, maybe it’s on a very private, off-off-off-the-beaten-path stage but it’s theirs.
Venus at 7 degrees Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces at 7:10 am Thursday. This is the classic in-love-with-love aspect. Try to keep your feet on the ground when being charmed by the new beau. You can also tune in to others in a very empathetic way, making them feel that someone really understands them. This is a great transit for expressing yourself in painting, music, poetry, photography, and any other art or craft. Visit a gallery for inspiration!
Mercury at 16 degrees Cancer squares retrograde Uranus in Aries at 8:07 pm Thursday; it immediately trines Saturn in Scorpio at 10:11 pm the same night. Mercury in a water sign is very fast, so when it squares Uranus you can sure expect things to happen in a hurry. Caution: this is an accident-prone transit so be careful driving and watch your head! Your mind may work very fast today, which means you need to check your work the next day. Make notes of your thoughts to think thru later, make a to-do list to stay on track. Nerves can be jittery, so it might be wise to stay off the caffeine; you will definitely NOT need the extra stimulation today. Try to watch yourself for impulsiveness, even rashness; signal before changing lanes, for example.
Mars enters Scorpio, where it is co-ruler, at 10:25 pm Friday. Mars in Scorpio wants control of his environment. Often Scorpios wind up in some type of managerial position, maybe just so they can order their own chair and organize things the way they prefer in their office. Can learn to coax others into talking about their goals by revealing (at least partially) one of their own motives or intentions. Scorpio natives will find this transit lends steel to their goals, turning you into that irresistible force that overturns immovable objects. Could also be vengeful, unless you have transformed into the eagle rather than the scorpion. Your taste may turn towards horror movies and the like. Mars in Scorpio is apt at using sharp tools, whether as a butcher or as a surgeon. Famous people with Mars in Scorpio include: Jean-Paul Sartre, Robert Louis Stevenson, George Washington, Eleanor Roosevelt, Alan Jay Lerner, Jonas Salk, Mohandas Gandhi, and Robert F. Kennedy.
We have a New Moon at 3 degrees 52′ Leo at 6:42 pm Saturday. The Moon conjoined Jupiter three hours earlier, and the Moon’s next aspect is a trine to Uranus at 8:14 pm the following Sunday, July 27. Moon-Jupiter expands the self to embrace the whole world of experience, law, scholarship, travel, and the arts, and the trine to Uranus eases expression of our insights into whatever forms is available to us. We will probably have our eyes opened to other ways of living, and implement new ways of doing things. We may plan a trip to foreign shores, or even get on the boat or plane. We run into people who are very different from ourselves, and we like them a lot!

A gift to my lovely readers –

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
