Your Milky Way Horoscope March 15-21
By Milky Way Maid
And Happy starry St. Paddy’s Day to you! I see a stressful day of squares to the Uranus-Saturn opposition, so people might drink even harder than usual after work. Find something to thank your stars for, whether it is being born Irish, or marrying that fine person, or having such good parents, or belonging to such a loving mutt.
The Sun enters Aries on Friday. Happy Birthday to all you Arians, who love to come first in anything. To Friends of Arians: tell them they are first in your heart, and you will win them over.
Mars entered Pisces on Sat., March 14. Mars here favors water sports or just laying by the pool. Mars in Pisces is best expressed as offering spiritual insight and solutions to problems; you can raise everyone’s spiritual awareness. The tendency is to think that only you are at a higher level, and that you can look down on everyone else. Learn to accept the input of others to arrive at a best resolution of a conflict.
Mercury and Uranus are conjunct in psychic Pisces on Saturday (1 am Eastern) thru Monday. If you want to stay up Friday, it is great for brainstorming. Keep a paper and pen handy to jot down ideas for later. Write down dreams, too, and check out possible meanings in good dream books like Wilda Tanner’s The Mystical Magical Marvelous World of Dreams.
Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also the sign of their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop.
ARIES – March 20-April 19 – The Sun enters your sign, and that is always a source of a new burst of energy and direction. Make an agenda for spring tasks you wish to accomplish to focus your energy. Venus retrograde is giving you an opportunity to examine what you value in life really. It also may prompt you into a bit of a makeover; collect ideas on updating your haircut and coloring and act when Venus goes direct mid-April. Venus in Aries is the signature of barbers and hair stylists, so if you have that placement natally, you may feel prompted to look into training for a career cutting hair.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – You and Libra are affected by Venus’ retrograde more than most, because it is your ruling planet. You may splurge on small indulgences, and this is better than pigging out while wallowing in self-pity. At least Libra is more proactive, and you would benefit by taking the bull by the horns, too (so to speak, LOL). Perhaps a friend at school offers help or ideas; even if you only shoot the breeze together, you will feel less abandoned. Your best ally right now is Vesta in your sign; she prompts you to just keep on chopping wood, carrying water as you keep your inner balance.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Your ruler Mercury opposes Saturn on Wednesday night. Harness that mental discipline to plow thru spreadsheets and other data; research your term papers and other presentations; set up more effective email merge lists. Mercury is conjunct Uranus Sunday; while this is good for wordplay and enjoying a good comedy, it also can feed some surprising psychic moments. Because it is in your solar tenth house of career, you might get an insight into a career move. Dreams could be vivid so keep a pad and pen by the nightstand.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – If you are in the education or legal fields, the Mercury opposition to Saturn on Wednesday night can bring successful progress to a course or case (that is, if you have made a concerted effort). Also research and number-crunching, analysis of spreadsheets or annual reports can be be very productive and bring insights. Mars enters Pisces, trining your Sun from your solar ninth house. This also brings determined energy to ninth house issues (law, education, publishing, religion). Those in the brokering and advising fields also may gain more business.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Your ruling planet the Sun enters Aries on Friday. That means it trines your natal Sun, and generally the month is a good, productive one for you. The Sun will be in your solar ninth house of publishing, law, higher education and religion. Whatever you have on the agenda in those areas may need some work to bring it to fruition – and retrograde Venus there may or not be a help. What kind of values is the project or plan based on? Venus is values and demands compliance with the greater good.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Ceres in your sign is trined by Pluto on Sunday; it’s good for gardening (rototilling) and also for a real heart-to-heart with your children. Mars opposes Ceres on Wednesday, which tends to produce friction and argument with a child or mother; back off on the criticism. Mercury opposes your Saturn that evening; so work on anything that requires mental sharpness and discipline.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your ruler Venus continues to retrograde, however it semi-sextiles Mercury this week. Take the opportunity to examine your investments, record art work and update lists of valuables in case of loss/damage. Update insurance coverage. You might be really stressed by everything going on, but avoid sitting home nibbling sweets; you thrive on public contact so look for some job (paid or volunteer) where you can do that. This may include giving lessons in art or other skills you are very good at.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from the the previous Friday till early Monday. The Moon squares Jupiter late Saturday, suggesting you overdid something (celebrating St. Pat’s a wee early, hmm?). Working up a sweat early Sunday will help get the toxins out of your system. An evening soak in a hot tub, with the old reliable Epsom salts, will help sore muscle aches. Spend quality time with one of the kids that night. The second half of the week features a sextile between co-rulers Mars and Pluto; they’re in your solar third (siblings) and fifth (children) houses so possibly relatives (male) can assist you in some project. Call in your markers.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from early Monday till Wednesday afternoon. You might be all fired up about something Monday (maybe about growing a victory garden) but stop, do some study on what grows best in your area. It will save having to redo all your plans. Tuesday a local vendor may be able to give you a better deal than some faceless webpage; support the local economy. The evening can be frustrating because you run into that Uranus-Saturn opposition in some way; home and career can pull you in opposite directions. Wednesday midday poses a family challenge; you may have to dash home or take a call.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from Wednesday afternoon till early Saturday. A Moon-Pluto conjunction sextiles Mars in Pisces; it favors research, investigation and weeding out files or drawers. Thursday has a Moon-Venus square; it’s OK to ask for affection and assurance from your loved ones. And touch base with those in your circle of support. Friday you will probably have a pile of work to get out before the weekend; pace yourself. The evening favors relaxing with a comedy, computer games, or foreign films.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from early Saturday thru the weekend. Get together early Saturday with a friend (Moon sextile Sun in your solar eleventh house). You might spend part of the day also plotting a garden or prepping the soil. That evening you might chat with a bosom buddy late into the night. Sunday will be spent creatively adjusting walls or boundaries; perhaps you are altering a new living space to suit to. Mars enters your solar second house of money, which is not a good place; be especially conscious of managing debts and avoiding fees. On the other hand, you might look for fees you can charge others for your services.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Mercury in Pisces opposes Saturn on Wednesday night; you gain insights if you sit down and analyze papers. Mars, having just entered your sign, sextiles Pluto the same day/night; this also supports analysis, research, number-crunching. Mercury is conjunct Uranus in Pisces on Sunday; sudden insights and even psychic moments can strike and illuminate your situation.
