Your Milky Way Horoscope May 17-23
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun enters Gemini on Wednesday at 5:51 pm Eastern, so happy birthday to all “Twins”. A fabulous opportunity for starting new ventures comes with the conjunction of Jupiter and Neptune next week Wednesday; I just wanted to give you an advance heads-up on this so you can plan anything from putting a website online to promoting your business.
The Sun conjunct Mercury Monday in a late degree of Taurus could be an interesting opportunity to use this powerful energy to make money or start a new bank account. Use caution because you could just as well bankrupt yourself in a risky venture. Mercury is retrograde, true, but that could mean you revisit a previous attempt and find ways to tweak and improve upon it.
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. Also note: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect.
ARIES – March 20-April 19 – The Moon is in Aries from early evening Tuesday till Thursday evening. Transiting Moon squares Pluto Tuesday so you want to get to the bottom of things, literally or metaphorically. Wednesday evening is “attitude adjustment” time, particularly in dealings with a Virgo; this time favors getting together to clear the air or just get better acquainted. It might even kindle romantic feelings, what with Moon con Venus later that evening. Your energy is high Thursday morning with a Moon conjunct Mars, so use care to direct that energy positively.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from Thurs. evening till late Sat. night. You get trines on Friday from the Moon to the other earth transits (Saturn and Pluto). This sounds very serious, but earth trines favor actually producing or building something, whether it is a trinket, a tool, software or movie. Get on the ball if starting your own company. The Moon is conjunct Mercury on Saturday; Mercury is retrograde so I suggest reviewing written materials, records, etc. for clues on how to improve, or just to study for a test. Taurus is music, of course, so you could really have an especially good jam session or recital. Or even write some original tunes. Squares late Sat. give you a chance to put ideals (Jupiter-Neptune) into action.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – You can benefit greatly from the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction next week in your solar ninth house of law, publishing, college, national politics, and religion. Part-time instructors could gain full-time status as professors, professors could gain tenure, students can graduate or get scholarships, writers can get their publishing contract, and blogs can gain national followings. In more mundane matters, friends may have to break dates due to work schedule changes so just be flexible and willing to entertain yourself if need be.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Tuesday may be your best day this week with Moon in compatible Pisces and its sextiles to Sun-Mercury; boon companions bring laughs and good times. On Wednesday work issues are primary, and meetings will detail changes to protocol or work rules. Friday is very productive although you will be working hard. Issues related to a family business may enter the front burner in the coming weeks. You may have to become more heavily involved in its operations or finances.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – A child who is off at college may have a change of schedule or change majors; talk him out of dropping out tho because a degree is needed just to get in the door these days. Your partner will benefit from the upcoming Jupiter-Neptune conjunction; alternatively, you may benefit greatly from creating a business (or personal) partnership. The Sun-Mercury conjunction in your solar tenth house of career benefits from a sextile to Uranus; a surprising or quick payment from insurance is possible.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Late Virgoes can get the benefit of a trine to the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Taurus; revisit “old business” or check your ledgers for errors, clues to how to improve your situation, or just keep an eye on your progress. Also Moon trining your sign from Taurus from late Thursday thru Saturday can give you a very productive week. Early Virgoes will feel the energizing effect as Sun enters Gemini on Wednesday; career matters could pick up. Venus is inconjunct Saturn in your sign this week; issues with your partner’s money or with insurance and wills may need adjusting to keep up with changes in your situation.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – You get a fine trine from the upcoming powerful conjunction between Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius; it is in your solar fifth house of children, fun, creative expression, and gambling or the stock market. You could sponsor a child in an international charity, or a family member could have twins. Your creative endeavors may find a gallery to hold a showing, or you could win mention in a juried show. The Sun moves into the other air sign, Gemini, which will help energize early Librans especially in matters related to law, publishing, college, national politics, or religion.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The upcoming Jupiter-Neptune conjunction will square your natal placements, Scorp, but this still gives you an opportunity (frequently masked as a challenge) to deal with home and family issues. You may be able to hold off foreclosure, or buy some of those fire-sale-priced properties. Late Scorpios could benefit from the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Taurus, on Saturday, in their solar house of partners; take the opportunity to get to know your partner better, perhaps with one of those marriage enrichment classes.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – You benefit from the Sun’s entry into compatible Gemini on Wednesday. You may gain friends or a wonderful business partner. You may have more occasion to appear in public such as emceeing or doing interviews. Your balance between work and fun may need adjusting as I feel you will be getting longer hours at work, at least for the near future. Third house matters will gain an increasing amount of your time with the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction making itself felt (although it is not exact till next week).
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Uranus in your solar third house is sextile the Sun-Mercury conjunction in Taurus on Monday; your week starts off auspiciously with good news and introductions to people who may be significant to you in time. Be sure to followup as some messages are sure to be lost under the Mercury retrograde. These people may be connected to you in fun activities like sports, games, gambling, arts, or other creative activities. A child may go off to college in another state and leave you with an empty-nest feeling; send him a pre-paid calling card to keep in touch.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius as the week begins Sunday, until mid-morning. Your Sunday is bathed in the rosy glow of the near Jupiter-Neptune conjunction. Not sure if this means luxuriating in bubble bath, hot tub, or just by the pool, or volunteering in a local charity. Both will fit. You may be called out of town to visit a close relative who takes a turn for the worse; hope your partner is supportive of that. Also a child may have another surprise expense but it isn’t really his fault.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from mid-morning Sunday till early evening Tuesday. Sunday suits clearing out closets for items to donate to Goodwill, due to a Moon-Pluto aspect (Pluto clears out and wipes out). Monday is a nose-to-the-grindstone day with an opposition to Saturn, and boy do you resent it. But Tuesday is more agreeable with sextile from Moon to Sun-Mercury in Taurus and a conjunction to Uranus. You could get inspired by music or inspired to write music.
