Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 9-15, 2009
By Milky Way Maid
Mars in Gemini squares Saturn in Virgo on Monday evening; this is an aspect that commonly marks accidents and injuries, so drive defensively and hold onto railings. Saturn rules bones so there is always the chance of a fracture. Watch out for accidental electronic slip-ups, too, like sending a personal email to “all” at work. The mutable signs will be most affected (Gemini, Virgo, Sag, Pisces).
The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo on Tuesday morning. What a wonderful day for high, ebullient spirits. Wear red if ya got it.
Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday. This can be an awfully lucky transit, especially for air signs — altho that depends of course on your natal placements and what natal houses are affected. Possible events include luck in sports, high energy, making good personal and business decisions, making a juicy commission, brokering a deal. Good luck!
ALL TIMES GIVEN ARE EASTERN DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME.
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; actually this horoscope is better with using the ascendant. 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 4:23 pm Sunday till Tuesday night. You are all about self-empowerment, and may insist on regaining control over even small items. Perhaps you are concerned over your waistline, and ask the wife to not make sweets; let her down gently, and be willing to accept kisses as substitutes ;). The Moon squares Venus midday Monday. This is a very sociable aspect, tho possessiveness threatens to spoil a party. Teaming up with a Taurus this week can be beneficial to all.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 12:50 am Wed. till 6:25 am Friday. It is Taurus’ turn to take back some of her power late Tues.; make a list of self-empowerment changes you can make in your life, & tuck it in a drawer. The Moon in Taurus sextiles Venus in Cancer late Wed.; good for a date or party, tho hard to skip noshing! Catch up with the latest news with a Virgo on Thurs. morn when Moon trines Mercury in Virgo. Moon trines Saturn in Virgo midday Thurs.; you may benefit from lunching with an older person, a mentor type, but watch that you are not late back to work. The afternoon has great opportunities hiding in a square to the Aquarian planets, plus a fun sextile to Uranus in the evening. You can make marvelous things happen for you.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 6:25 am Friday till next Sunday morning. Mars in your sign squares Saturn Monday evening; you could be accident-prone today so keep alert and watch your step. A sextile to Mars in Gemini on Tuesday morn can fuel a friendly rivalry or a team effort. Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday; see notes at top. Saturday gets off to a rocky start when Mercury-Saturn square Moon in Gemini; you may have gotten messages garbled on where to meet. But the afternoon and evening sail along under a Moon trine Jupiter-Neptune; you might be on or near the water, or at a film fest, but at any rate having a great time.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Moon in Taurus sextiles Venus in Cancer late Wednesday; good for a date or party, tho hard to skip noshing on sweets. Best days this week are when Moon is in Taurus, Wednesday till early Friday. You may be able to mentor a Taurus friend, and help him or her to see the business opportunities hiding in a changing landscape.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Monday has very sociable Moon-Venus aspect, tho your possessiveness may be easily ignited and totally misplaced. The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo early Tuesday; this fiery combo can light up the room and inspire the staff. Leos make good executives, (and ‘kings’), but try to be one of those ‘enlightened despots’! You get better performance from staff and crew when you outline the goal rather than the exact process. And be generous with top performers Your best days this week are when the Moon is in Aries, Sunday night till Tuesday night.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Catch up with the latest news with a Taurus on Thursday morning when the Moon trines Mercury in Virgo; an early coffee or run sounds good. Moon trines Saturn in Virgo midday Thursday; this is a good time to start any disciplined regimen such as losing that ‘baby fat’ or starting a daily swim. You may also benefit from lunching with an older person, a mentor type. Double-check details inre meeting a friend Saturday morning; I see crossed wires otherwise, and you could miss out on a fabulous day.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Tuesday you may be in the spotlight, whether making a presentation or a sales call. Nice aspects to Aries, your solar seventh house, to Mars and Jupiter-Neptune. Wear a cool blue, maybe with a red accent. Show ’em how they benefit by employing your smoothly competent company for whatever it is you do. Moon in Gemini this week is good, too, especially Saturday when you may even fly off for a vacation.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Midday Monday provides a sweet opportunity to socialize, just remember not to tease anyone because people just don’t appreciate that kind of stuff. Also late Wednesday provides a similar ‘op’ to make connections; due to the late hour I guess email or phone are the most likely medium. Late Thursday evening you can give/receive a real surprise to/from a child or romantic partner. Creative expression and games are also favored that evening.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars in Gemini squares Saturn Monday evening; you could be accident-prone today so keep alert and watch your step. The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo early Tuesday; combined with your natal fire planets, this grand fire trine can sure inspire staff or a company to pursue a grand ambition. Sag aims high, and you are able to not only reach higher than anyone thought you ever would, but also inspire others to achieve far more than they could imagine.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – This looks like a quiet week for you, Cappy, which is I’m sure just fine with you. You may even have a vacation planned just camping or hiking. You like simple and rustic accommodations. I knew a Capricorn at work once, who liked to rough it as much as possible because, he said, it made him appreciate what he had all the more once he got back to the city. So count your blessings, and have a great week.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – You’ll enjoy lunch with friends under a sextile to the Moon on Tuesday; they may have deep pockets and be in a generous mood. Perhaps scheduling a luncheon with donors would be beneficial for your non-profit group. Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday; see notes at top. Aquarius is busiest on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, which gives you a convenient breather to catch up on chores and messages on the in-between days.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is still in Pisces as the week begins, with a conjunction to Uranus Sunday morning. You may feel terribly upset over a little thing, and retreat to your private corner of the world to get your head together. Try to put things in perspective. Watch your step and drive defensively on Monday evening; you’ll want to keep alert so don’t even have a wine with dinner. Saturday’s aspects are great for being in or near the water, and I know you love to swim.
