Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 13-19, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

People with natal planets or house cusps at 24 to 26 degrees of the signs will feel all these aspects much more than the rest of us! Zowie I have not seen such a series of aspects all in one week, all hitting the same degrees since, since I don’t know when. The Moon is conjunct Saturn midday Friday just before conjoining the Sun at the New Moon — at 2:44 pm. at 25 degrees Virgo.

Mercury is at 29 degrees, and Pallas is at 22 degrees. They oppose Uranus, trine the North Node, and squares Pluto in an out-of-sign aspect. The Virgo cluster is in the eighth house of insurance and other pooled funds in a chart set for Washington, DC. The insurance industry is not sitting on its hands during this discussion of healthcare reforms. It is odd that Mars in the sixth house of health issues is about to leave that house, and makes no aspects to anything except to oppose the ascendant. That seems to suggest that actual health matters are not part of the discussion, as the battleground has gone to the insurers and other financial centers.

The President is the tenth house with Scorpio therein. One ruler, Mars, is not engaged, as we have pointed out. The other ruler, Pluto, is squaring the Virgo stellium and is in the twelfth house, the house of self-undoing. There is always the chance that the twelfth house may denote a behind-the-scenes effort that forces the issue, or even denote the “plutocracy”, the real rulers behind every presidency or prime minister in the Western world. Is the president getting his backing from this plutocracy rather than from the American people? The ninth house of national politics is Libra, ruled by Venus. But Venus is not making aspects to the ninth, and will not get to the New Moon degree for about a month. So I expect the debate to continue at least that long. About the only good thing about this chart is that the Sun, Moon and Mercury are all separating from Saturn.

Venus opposes Chiron during the wee hours Monday. The people at The Magi Society associate Chiron with falling in love and with marriage (although not necessarily a happy marriage, as witness the disaster that was the Princess Diana-Prince Charles match. So let’s just say that one ought to be very cautious about those attractive people you meet under this aspect. You might fall in love, and it might be the talk of the town for awhile, but it may cost you more than you want to pay. Check out this other person before getting in too deep.

Saturn opposes Uranus on Tuesday morning at 8:51 am EDT, at 24 degrees Virgo-Pisces, upsetting everyone’s apple cart. Venus opposes Neptune that evening at 24 degrees Leo-Aquarius. Then the Moon joins Venus, and the Moon opposes Jupiter and then Neptune. Holy macaroni, what a lot of oppositions. Love’s illusions are revealed and leaves you in tears. Great for attending classic performances of La Traviata and similar love tragedies like Romeo and Juliet.

Mercury squares Pluto Thursday morn at 7:46 am, in the first degree of Libra-Capricorn. Pluto is investigation, among other things, and Mercury is news or reports. You may have investigational reports due about this time, and they will have a great deal of information and research packed into them. The news may feature some important stories on the plutocracy, on insurance, or on DNA research. The Sun conjoins Saturn Thursday at 25 degrees Virgo. Sun-Saturn combinations impress one with a sense of duty and with responsibility.

AND Virgo’s ruler Mercury retrogrades into Virgo on Thursday late at night.

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. Times given are in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.

ARIES – March 20-April 19 – Midday Sunday brings a Moon-Mars conjunction in your solar fourth house of home and family; this tends to produce argument so it’s a good time to practice biting your tongue. Mon. thru Wed. sees contacts to Venus in your solar fifth house of children opposed by Neptune; you worry that a child is in love with love and rushes into a disastrous liaison. A New Moon Friday in your solar sixth house puts the focus on health and work issues. Stick to your regimen and see your healthcare provider re nagging problems. Aries as a patient lacks patience! Sometimes they overdo on the spicy foods, too. In their favor is a take-charge attitude and getting matters taken care of asap. Saturn here may saddle you with long hours in a low-paying situation.

TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – Your ruler Venus has a rough week, opposing Chiron and Neptune on your solar midheaven and IC. It is good for charitable work, though, or volunteering at food banks, meal programs, and nursing homes. A Moon-Mars conjunction on Sunday can cause argument with a neighbor or sibling, or in a local business. Bite your tongue and walk away; if you feel you have been walked on once too often, then by all means talk it over but wait till tempers have cooled. The Venus-Neptune opposition in your fourth-tenth houses can mean you miss important childhood events due to work. Really now, which are you more likely to remember twenty years from now?

GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – A Moon-Mars conjunction in your solar second house on Sunday can take a cut (Mars) to your finances. Mars is fees, commissions, taxes, and other “cuts”. Scan your bills for any fees that you do not understand or are made-up charges. The New Moon in Virgo on Friday squares your Sun from your fourth house, putting the accent on your home and family. A family member may leave your home, altho that can be a good thing if they are going off to college or getting married. You will feel the empty nest acutely, tho. Get busy with cleaning out closets to get your mind off that.

CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Mars is halfway through your sign but for most of the week, is oddly disconnected from the rest of the planets. Oh, that’s OK, then you won’t have so darn many distractions getting you off track. Mars does make aspects to the Moon Sunday (conjunction) and Thursday evening (sextile), triggering strong feelings which could get the better of you. Try to work them off with a good swim or by cooking up a huge pot of your famous chili. The Venus-Neptune opposition Tuesday affects your money houses, so watch bills for unexplained charges and make sure you have been credited correctly.

LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Leo, baby, we love ya so we gotta pull you aside and ask how you know this person you have gone ga-ga over? Who introduced you? Maybe you ought to check this person out before getting in so deep that you can’t get out without a loss. Venus opposes Chiron early Monday, and opposes Neptune on Tuesday afternoon. Neither is good for objectivity, so lean on a good friend for advice. Use the internet to find out more about your intended, and let’s hope there are no ugly surprises lurking there.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – You’ll be rode hard and put to bed wet, to quote an old cowboy saying. The New Moon is in your sign but conjunct that old Saturn and opposite Uranus, waiting to upset your applecart. Your plans may get rearranged quite suddenly so be ready to roll with Uranus’ punches. In spite of Saturn’s presence, this NM can be a usable opportunity period especially if you are in some kind of scientific (Saturn) field. The exact opportunity period is half hour before and after the 2:44 pm NM on Friday, Sept. 18.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your ruler Venus opposes Chiron and Neptune this week, which does you no favors in whatever sectors they occupy in your natal chart. See Leo’s notes above. Be sensible and check out any new persons you meet. Get all the dish there is to dish about him/her from your friends. Ceres in your sign says to just tend to your own ‘cooking’, whether literal or figurative. You can benefit also from nurturing yourself with healthy food, spa or massage treatments, or beautifying masques. (Libra rules skin.) Learn to make your own skin care treatments and save a few bucks. The info is out there on the web or in libraries.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – Your co-ruler Mars is conjunct the Moon midday Sunday in your solar ninth house; strong emotions can get the better of you so work them off in a long swim. Or you might immerse yourself, figuratively speaking, in your studies or in a book project. Mars also sextiles the Moon on Thursday evening; by then you should have a handle on it and can express yourself more constructively. Your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs is activated by the New Moon Friday; you may even assume a chairmanship or other officer position at least as a temporary fill-in.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – The New Moon in Virgo affects your solar tenth house of career and reputation. It is possible that a work assignment could end suddenly; it is also possible you may shift into a telecommuting position or an on-call status. Pluto is at the beginning of a long visit to your solar second house of finances; your casual attitude towards money is due for a shakeup (if you have not already been shaken, that is). A long-distance love (Venus in the ninth) slips away (Neptune) without you nearby to kindle the flame. Reviewing your insurance (and wills) this week can be productive as you find out what is actually paid or not paid by the plan.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – Your spouse may be emotional on Sunday so try to soothe before he/she feels overwhelmed. The Venus-Neptune opposition on Tuesday affects your money houses, so check bills and make sure to note due dates. The New Moon in Virgo on Friday affects your solar ninth house of college, law, publishing and politics. Projects may suddenly (Uranus) be put on hold or canceled, or picked up. Students may change majors. Cases may receive final verdicts or be dismissed.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon-Mars conjunction on Sunday can negatively affect your health; avoid the spicy stuff for now, and forbid arguments at the dinner table. Monday and Tuesday will be very trying times for marriage or other partnerships; check the books if you suspect a business partner is skimming funds. The New Moon is in your solar eighth house of wills and insurance. Perhaps you actually have some input into the current discussion on national healthcare. It is possible you suddenly are saddled (Saturn) with the responsibility of handling an estate.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – The Moon-Mars conjunction Sunday in your solar fifth house of fun can lead to intense emotions; a love affair deepens. The New Moon on Friday affects your solar seventh house. Your marriage may suddenly fall apart, or you may suddenly receive and accept a proposal. Saturn tends to solidify relationships into formal channels, so that someone you have been seeing could decide to make things official. However, pushing matters into a decision prematurely is inviting them to an early end.

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.
