Your Milky Way Horoscope June 28-July 4, 2009
By Milky Way Maid
Uranus makes a retrograde station on Wednesday morn at 3:37 am Eastern Time, at 26 degrees Pisces. Note any contacts to natal or progressed planets or angles. It is on my Part of Fortune and an asteroid, so I will let you know if anything transpires. Electronic devices may be balky so back up your computer files and be cautious about opening email attachments. Stations are not necessarily bad, they can make the planet very powerful if aspecting other transits or natal planets. Also, you could possibly have psychic moments when you know what someone will say or do, or get that strange sense of deja vu.
Venus squares Jupiter and Neptune on Wednesday night and then jumps into Gemini early Sunday. That Venus is a busy gal. I would not sign any papers or even bother listening to any sales spiels on Wednesday. On the other hand, it may be good for soliciting donations for a charity or social cause.
The Moon opposes Mars on Thursday night; this is a lousy time to start any project so don’t. It will be hard to muster the energy or support for your idea.
Mercury opposes Pluto 11:29 am Eastern on Sat., in the first degree of Cancer/Capricorn. Check out the national and international news that morning for significant events and announcements. Pluto rules government control, evolution, the masses, investigations, pooled resources like insurance or mutual funds, intergenerational issues and much more. Mercury is of course travel and communications.
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 – Your spouse or partner takes the spotlight on Tuesday, with the Moon putting a silvery halo on him or her. You are not used to being Numero Dos, but remind yourself that your turn comes in due time. Mercury’s dynamic aspects on Wednesday energize your travel and communications, and you may enjoy visiting with friends in the area. Perhaps you call (Mercury) to arrange a visit later, after Venus enters your solar third house of relatives, visits, and travel next Sunday.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – Wednesday can be difficult but also present opportunities when Venus in Taurus squares Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter in Aquarius, your solar tenth house. If your career involves charitable projects or social causes, this can be a good time to make a pitch, altho you will certainly have your work cut out for you. Mars in Taurus opposes transiting Moon on Thursday evening; this does not favor new projects at all or anything having to do with the public. Mars in Taurus is a rather poor placement and can make you rather combative.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Venus enters your sign next Sunday morn, bright and early at 4:23 am Eastern. You may wish to spruce up your appearance in some way the first week by visiting a beauty salon or adding colorful accessories to your wardrobe. Venus also brings gifts and freebies, and not just because it is your birthday. Hey, sign up for birthday club memberships at your fave restaurants for a free meal, or free coffee at your cafe. Your best day this week is Thursday, due to the trine of transiting Mercury in Gemini to transiting Neptune, Chiron and Jupiter. Communications and travel can be inspiring (Neptune), and you can reach people deep down with the need for sharing and charity.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – You are most active this week when the Moon is in another cardinal sign, Libra, from Sunday till Tuesday, but most comfortable when Moon is in water sign Scorpio from Tuesday till Friday. So get your chores out of the way early in the week and plan to sit by the pool or lake during the second half. Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn midday Saturday; you can get into a real tug-of-war with your spouse but wouldn’t you rather focus your energies on something more constructive? You may also enjoy research or reading a good murder mystery novel.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Wednesday’s Gemini Moon is sextile your natal sign, and so the Moon’s trines to heavy-duty Jupiter, Neptune and Chiron reflect light back on you. You and/or your spouse can be quite inspiring figures to others this week, whether you are involved in charitable functions or other projects in the public eye. While you love, and I mean LOVE the bright and noisy fireworks, this year’s Moon in Sag square to Saturn on Saturday does not put you in a happy mood. Perhaps your children’s worries are affecting you, too. You can turn that around and be quite the entertainer, taking their minds off their problems.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo as the week begins until Sunday afternoon. You could wake up Sunday in a creative mood, since the Moon trines Venus 4 am Eastern, and also is inconjunct Jupiter-Neptune; feel free to indulge your muses or just rearrange the furniture. You may also wish to adjust your health regimen. The Moon opposes Uranus at midday so appliances or computers may act up, or your partner may upset you. It is a passing mood, so shake it off. On Saturday you may have to maintain discipline with your kids running around during July 4 observances, but that’s what moms are for, right?
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from Sunday afternoon till Tuesday night. Sunday night the Moon squares Pluto in Capricorn; you may feel resentful about home and family (your solar fourth house); perhaps family members pry into your affairs too much, or are too controlling. Monday’s square to the Sun in your solar tenth house makes the work week hard to get started with. A difference of opinion may arise between you and the boss so choose your words carefully. Tuesday goes better, with the Moon trine those Gemini and Aquarius planets. You are hot today, and your communications skills are never better.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from Tuesday night till Friday night. Uranus makes a station Wednesday morning in your solar fifth house of fun, sports, and creativity. If speculating, it is possible to receive a bit of a windfall tho that depends on your natal planets. Uranus is comedy so it can mean you indulge in a laugh-fest, renting out Three Stooges or other comedy collections. Also on Wednesday, the Moon trines Sun in Cancer; you may feel drawn to water or just have deep reactions to discussions of legal cases or in college classes. The Moon makes an easy sextile Thursday to Saturn; you are disciplined and can check off lots from your ‘to do’ list. Do a favor for an elderly person and add to your karma balance.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from Friday night till the following Sunday night. You may not be in your usual festive moon this holiday weekend, perhaps you feel weighed down by work or family ‘stuff’, or maybe the fireworks show is not as extravagant as last year’s. So what; we still have the free show, the cotton candy, the sparklers, and cookouts, so what’s to complain about? Sag is ever the optimist but you may have a work at it a bit this weekend. Best day is Tuesday, with its air trines involving Moon, Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune. This is especially true if you work with a partner and can split duties when doing presentations or the like.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday night Moon in Libra squares Pluto in your sign; you enjoy a nice mystery novel or perhaps some personal research turns up a rich lode of information. Monday can bring conflicts with a spouse or partner but it is a passing mood, do not base any decisions on what is really nothing at all. Tuesday’s cardinal Moon in Libra helps you accomplish a great deal regarding money issues. All that work might be undone the next day, tho: Children may cost you a bit of cash Wednesday; I know they are always expensive but something unexpected comes up this week.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Your best day this week is undoubtedly Wednesday when the Moon in sparkling, flirty Gemini trines your planets. Your children and artistic projects meet with public approval, even though sales (Venus) may be disappointing. You may have to throw something in on the deal to make the sale, or promise to donate a portion of proceeds to a charity. Your ruling planet Uranus makes a station this Wednesday morning also; you could possibly have psychic moments when you know what someone will say or do, or get that strange sense of deja vu.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – You will be most comfortable with Moon in Scorpio this week from Tuesday night till Friday night. Thursday is best with the sextiles to Saturn in Virgo; you can be uncharacteristically industrious and get a great many chores done. Friday can be a bit trying with the squares from the Moon to the Aquarian planets; perhaps you might be able to visit relatives in the hospital or other shut-ins, and this can bring you lots of brownie points, good for karma (and that plus a buck fifty gets you a cup of coffee). ;~)
