Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov 1-7, 2009
By Milky Way Maid
Venus trines Neptune on Monday evening, and Neptune goes direct on Wednesday, Nov. 4 at 1:10 pm at 23 degrees 42 minutes Aquarius. One source says that Neptune retrograde brings exposure of shams and scams, or the desire to “unveil mysteries.” The retrograde gives an awareness of the subconscious but not necessarily the ability to tune into it.
I seem to notice that the retrograde in a birth chart shows people who are not so comfortable with the ordinary white lies of everyday life, or are people who are easily deceived and misled. Neptune direct though, is quite comfortable with lying to others to gain an advantage. So anyway, this may be a dry period for revelations of scandals hitting the headlines. Where is Neptune in your birth chart? And where is Aquarius in your birth chart? Take your cues from that.
BTW on Thursday, the Moon translates light from an aspect with a malefic planet (a trine to Neptune in the afternoon) into an aspect with a benefic planet (a trine to dear Venus late in the evening). Now, my opinion is that you can try to ‘channel’ the best of Neptune here by focusing on an ideal, on artwork and beauty, or even on beautiful dance. Then Venus can work on manifesting that thought-form into your reality.
Venus in Libra is inconjunct Uranus in Pisces Monday morning. This can be a tough aspect because one wants to have romance and freedom at the same time. Love may win out but not till after a separation or tiff. This tension can help produce some interesting and even avant-garde artwork.
Venus enters Scorpio at 7:23 pm Saturday, when she puts on the little black dress and her best pearls, a spritz of exotic perfume, and an allure that none can match. Venus here can cast a spell with just her eyes. Venus stays here for the month of November.
Venus in Scorpio natally is not supposed to be a good placement, but that all depends on how mature a soul one is. Younger or more insecure Scorpios may try to control their mates or loved ones. Mature Scorpio Venuses are just totally committed to their relationships. Venus here also has the talent of bringing out latent talents in others. 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 – The Moon is in Aries for a few hours Sunday morning. The Moon opposes Venus and sextiles Neptune, which sounds lovely for watching the sun come up with your beloved. Take along some coffee, sweet rolls and blanket. Be careful what kind of things you blurt out Sunday evening, though, when Mercury squares Mars. Things you say to your children or your romantic partner may not be very kind at all. I know you don’t understand the nuances of casual conversation, so just agree with your loved ones for the time being.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 7:45 pm Sunday till late Tuesday. The Moon is inconjunct Saturn and then trine Pluto on Sunday night; you are frustrated by obstacles etc. imposed by others and make a determination to be more in control of your destiny. The Moon squares Mars in Leo Monday morn which is not a good time to try to bull your way along. Leo is just as stubborn, so yield when making your a.m. commute, OK? The Full Moon is at 2:14 pm Monday at 10 degrees 30 minutes Taurus. The Moon is exalted in Taurus anyway, so this may be a rather auspicious time to start something that you want to last; however, be careful how you use that Mars energy. Tuesday morn has these squares to Jupiter and Neptune so while it is good to dream big, one needs to ground that dream in realistic facts as you try to figure out how to make it happen.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 11:53 pm till early Friday. The Moon trines Saturn, exalted in Libra, right away Wednesday night; check your deadlines and be sure to deliver. Saturn in your solar fifth house is a rather odd place for a house of creativity and fun, but you know how to get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, practice, practice, and Saturn is those untold hours of practice. On Wednesday you are going to have to exhibit your skills of adaptation all day. Thursday has trines to Jupiter and Neptune sandwiching a square to Uranus; ask yourself what you were doing Oct. 6-7 for clues to what this day will be like. The day ends with a trine to Venus; hugs and kisses for being sweet.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Mars in your solar twelfth house squares Mercury on Sunday; you may shoot yourself in the foot with displays of temper so watch yourself. The Moon is in Cancer from 2:42 am Friday till the following Sunday. Ugh, the Moon squares Saturn right away Friday morning; at least it will help you check things off your to-do list. Friday night favors making social contacts with people who can give you leg up. Saturday kicks off with a trine to the Sun, for fun, kids, games and creativity. A trine to Uranus in late afternoon sounds great for humor and laughs, also for fixing mechanical things.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mercury in Scorpio squares Mars in your sign on Sunday. This can bring arguments in the home, or at best thoughtless remarks, so be very sure of what you want to say. Try to avoid painting yourself into a corner where you have to defend your position. Venus enters your solar fourth house, helping to beautify your home with striking and classic design. You may want a black and white tiled floor, with striking, bold color accents. Your social life revolves around home and family all month. You also try to help family members to build a foundation for their lives.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Venus in Libra, your solar second house, trine Neptune on Monday; this is very nice for spending on art or music but Neptune can bring losses. Be alert to where you place your wallet or purse or purchases. Venus enters your solar third house, giving you a softer touch in your communications. Neighbors and siblings may express their fondness for you, and this could include some gifts or favors.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – On Sunday night a Mercury square Mars aspect affects your second house of money (and other possessions). So if you don’t want something to become an object of contention between you, just say no to requests to borrow whatever. Also Venus trines Neptune on Monday, and while this may be very good for the arts it is bad for losing cash or jewelry; be alert. Venus enters your solar second house which is a very pretty place for it. You use money to reinforce your self worth, which is perfectly OK to do. You also organize your living and work spaces for comfort and beauty.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Mercury squares Mars on Sunday evening, affecting your first and tenth houses. You may run around in a lot of wasted effort, or overwork yourself. Mercury in Scorpio can be very cutting, too, so think before shooting off your mouth. A Sun-Mercury conjunction in Scorpio on Thursday heightens your powers of analysis. Venus enters your own sign on Saturday. You feel more comfortable expressing affection with those close to you. Some may even say that you have a greater than usual need to be liked and loved this month.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Venus trines Neptune in your solar eleventh and third houses; you may introduce friends and siblings to each other and find they get along smashingly. Venus enters your solar twelfth house, where you may wish to share a spiritual understanding with others, or visit those in hospitals or other places of confinement. It’s a good month to do volunteer work or donate to charity.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Neptune goes direct Wednesday in your second house of money or possessions; be aware of where you put your credit cards, wallet or purse and don’t sign any contracts right now. Venus enters your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs. You may share personal resources or simple fellowship with others. You can be a force for harmonizing any group, or just bring cookies to the next club meeting.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Neptune goes direct in your sign on Wednesday, a bad day to hold press conferences or interviews because things may get hopelessly muddled. Venus enters your solar tenth house, where you get a pat on the back for your accomplishments at work or in the public sphere. Your self-worth is validated. You help support and promote social values, and help team members to get assigned to a productive slot.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Venus in Libra is inconjunct Uranus in your sign on Monday morning; you may feel inspired by some great music during your commute so tune in to a classical station. Venus enters your solar ninth house where you share values and inspire others in a college or publishing venture. You find a philosophical insight that you can take to heart, or explain such ideas to your students. You might even get an advance/royalties from a publisher or a legal judgment in your favor.
