Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 13-19, 2009
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun in Sag squares Uranus mid-morning on Monday; this can lead to arguments or accidents due to impatience. However, your urge to break out of a rut is ‘good thing’ because you can luck onto some new opportunities. Shake up your life in less stressful ways by taking a different route on your commute, or stopping in at a shop or gallery you have been curious about.
Venus in Sag trines Mars in Leo on Thursday morning. Assertiveness combined with diplomacy is rewarded. Try a little Leo charm, and if you don’t have any, fake it. Also relationships between men and women are harmonious; even breakups are amicable. Just discuss whatever issues you have in an adult manner instead of playing games. And Venus later squares Uranus on Saturday night. Ouch, this may push some couples into splitsville if they are not careful. But it can also mean impulse spending, or if you have a lucky transit, a nice windfall.
Mars will make a retrograde station next Sunday, Dec. 20 at 8:27 am. It will be at 19 degrees 42 minutes of Leo. 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 — Aries will probably enjoy this week. Fire signs benefit from several nice sextiles from Monday afternoon thru Wednesday. Monday night looks swell for sharing time with friends (Sun trine Jupiter in your solar eleventh house), possibly while watching the big ball game. A Moon-Venus conjunction on Tuesday afternoon in your solar ninth may bring good tidings in regard to legal, college, or publishing matters. The Moon in your solar ninth house this week is positive, and its sextile to Jupiter on Wednesday morning again brings benefits thru friends or clubs. Venus in Sag trines Mars in Leo, and that combined with your natal planets makes a wonderful grand trine; try to get projects off the ground or compete in contests.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – Sunday may be rather stressful for you due to the T-square involving Leo Mars, Scorpio Moon, and Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius. You might wind up being the rock-steady fulcrum while a storm swirls around you, so just keep a ready supply of patience and your scrumptious Christmas cookies on hand. The rest of the week looks much smoother, even dull. If you have natal planets in fire or air signs it looks like a very pleasant week. If you have planets at 19 degrees, prepare for the upcoming retrograde station of Mars in Leo. Your energy level could suffer, or you could rush too much, so try to get as much of the holiday prep work done as you can before Sunday. Pace yourself!
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Geminis benefit from several nice sextiles between fire and air signs this week. Monday afternoon through Wednesday look best, when you could accomplish much and even get a new project off the ground. Tuesday is more physical, with a trine from the Moon to Mars. Sextiles between the Moon and Jupiter, and a New Moon in Sag, make Wednesday bright. Aim high, consider a college course or enrollment, put out feelers on publishing or legal matters. The only troubling spot is Saturday night when a Venus-Uranus square threatens to end or interrupt a romantic relationship. Think twice before speaking; it might help to talk things over calmly on favorable Thursday morning, when a harmonious Venus-Mars trine is in effect.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – You have likely been frustrated since November when Saturn entered Libra, a sign square to your own. Cancer like any other cardinal sign really, really hates it when it is blocked from doing what it wants to do. Try not to take it out on others, tho, especially during this holiday season. Saturn is not saying no, it is just saying wait. And waiting is a lesson that cardinal signs need to learn. The Moon in Capricorn Friday sextiles Uranus in harmonious Pisces; you will enjoy being with your significant other and share laughs or maybe go to a comedy show.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 — Sunday could be a bit of a challenge due to a transiting Moon squaring Mars in your sign. You could be rushed, impatient, and even rude; don’t you know that some Leo charm works wonders? Also be sure that your impatience does not lead to any accidents. Best to work off some of your frustration in physical work. Good days are likely to be Monday afternoon thru Wednesday with sextiles to fire and air signs; creative work and your children may be involved. Thursday has a trine from Venus to Mars in Leo. Making your case in a diplomatic way can see your assertiveness rewarded. Friday you may have to make adjustments or compromises so be a good sport.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – If you are able to make adjustments without being too attached to the cold intellectual beauty of the way you had arranged things, you will make much progress this week. The Moon in Sag from Monday morn till Wednesday afternoon has many favorable transits if you are flexible and open to changes. Late Thursday and Friday favor critical analysis and other mental tasks. You can really drill down into the database then and perhaps even find some unexpected material. Saturday night’s Venus-Uranus square could affect you personally; my advice is to back off from being too critical or telling others what they ought to do. This is the season of love and light, you know, so try to give others the benefit of the doubt.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon sextiles Saturn in your sign on Monday afternoon; a sibling or neighbor may be able to cheer you up a bit but you may have to pick up the phone first. Wednesday night’s square from the Moon might prompt you into an emotional decision; things may look different in the morning. Saturday afternoon looks quite good as your emotions and rational self are under control. You may be called on to counsel or negotiate for siblings or others who are affected by the Venus-Uranus square Saturday. Mars goes stationary in your solar eleventh house next Sunday; it is possible that your club may have loan or credit problems, or that friends borrow money from you.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 — The Moon is in Scorpio from Sunday till Monday morning. Hope you enjoyed your weekend! Sunday might be frustrating, tho, with several squares to Mars and Jupiter in a T-square, making you feel like a walnut in a nutcracker, perhaps. But if you have the determination to finish a project against all odds, you can get it done. Help may come from a Pisces, a child of yours, or with special tools or info off the web (Uranus). The Sun squares Uranus on Monday in your solar fifth house, which raises the possibility of a nice little windfall or at least a fun time at a comedy show.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 — The Moon is in Sag from 7:25 am Monday till Wednesday afternoon. The Sun in Sag squares Uranus mid-morning; this can lead to arguments or accidents due to impatience. However, your urge to break out of a rut is ‘good thing’ because you can luck onto some new opportunities. So take a different route on your commute or whatever. Monday pm favors classes, exams, or studying with a friend. That evening is swell for exploring your neighborhood. Tuesday is much sweeter with a Moon-Venus conjunction, trining Mars in Leo. Anything you propose is likely to be met with encouragement. Wednesday is another caution day with the Moon square Uranus, altho you might benefit from counseling or talking to a sibling.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 — The Moon is in Capricorn from 5:32 pm Wednesday till Saturday morn. Wednesday is likely to be fraught with obstacles (Moon-Pluto square Saturn) but you like challenges. Personal communications will flow easily on Thursday (Moon conjunct Mercury). Friday is promising if you are willing to make some adjustments, probably to your financial arrangements or insurance; you might have to followup on disputes over claims or something like that. Also the afternoon could produce some insights Moon sextile Uranus) if you analyze paperwork or stick to your desk.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 — The Sun in Sag sextiles Chiron in your sign; it may be helpful to you to consult a natural health practitioner, such as an herbalist or massage therapist. The Moon is in Aquarius from 5:39 am Saturday thru the weekend. A trine to Saturn rules your day, which may not sound like a lot of fun but boy, you sure could knock out a bunch of items from your to-do list. Peeking ahead to Sunday: things requiring physical effort (Mars), or possibly some involvement with sports, can pay off financially or at least with a nice thank-you from a friend, club or charity.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Monday may be the most difficult day this week due to a Sun-Uranus square; disputes or accidents can arise but you secretly wanted a break in your routine anyway. Take a different route to work, or shake up your life in less stressful ways. Wednesday may present you with an unpleasant discovery but it can provide you with insights you can use in the future. The Moon in Capricorn sextiles Uranus in your sign on Friday afternoon; you will enjoy laughs and more with friends after work.
