Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 20-26, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

The Moon will be in fiery and cheerful Aries this Christmas. Expect more candles than usual, perhaps with everyone assigned a small one to hold while standing around the tree, or perhaps a line of luminarias will light the approach to your home. Expect lots of RED. Possibly your turkey or ham will be cooked on a grill or over a flame. Aries is the eternal kid, so try to think of some small traditions from your own childhood that have fallen by the way, and merit resurrecting from the past. Making cookies with the kids has never gone out of style, either, and be sure to let them decorate however they want.

Mars makes a stationary retrograde on Sunday, Dec. 20, at 8:27 am at 19 degrees 42 minutes of Leo. Fiery Leo is a great placement for fiery Mars, and Mars in Leo is very courageous; PLUS Mars is opposed by the Moon for an extra emotional boost. I have no doubt that ball games played this month have generally been of a high caliber, with teams giving it their all to fight to make the playoffs. Frankly the games this month may be better than the actual playoffs in January or the Super Bowl.

Mercury in Capricorn is inconjunct Mars in Leo on Monday. Following on the heels of the Mars station, this is very interesting to say the least. Many of us will have to adjust our convictions and beliefs, especially those who are most attached to them! Listen to others with an open mind and at least a wait-and-see attitude. Capricorns and Leos are most involved in this aspect.

Venus sextiles Jupiter and Neptune on Sunday night; Venus wants to give the very best quality gifts and with Jupiter-Neptune involved, may blow the holiday budget to smithereens. Keep to your shopping list! Hide your credit cards from yourself if you have to. Venus enters Capricorn at 1:17 pm Friday, Christmas Day. This gives a practical yet high-quality tilt to gifts exchanged this day. Venus here also tends to be rather materialistic, and to use others for their own ends. However, a more developed Venus here is a master of knowing what is appropriate for every social situation; and with the square to Saturn, may become quite the go-to person for rules (Saturn) of etiquette (Venus).

Mercury stations retrograde on Saturday at 9:38 am, at about 21 degrees Capricorn. Check whether that makes any aspects to natal planets in your chart, and double-check any papers dealing with related issues. This can of course snarl routine communications. Use delivery confirmation on emails and packages. It’s interesting that this occurs on the busiest day for after-holiday sales and also for exchanges. So make sure that if you are exchanging a shirt, for example, that it actually fits you or matches the item you plan to wear it with.

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.

ARIESMarch 20-April 19 — The Moon is in Aries from 6:40 am till Saturday afternoon. The Moon squares the Sun and Pluto midday Thursday, and opposes Saturn that afternoon. You will feel terribly frustrated and as though decisions are made by others without any input from you at all. Aries does tend to want things their way all the time, so this is an opportunity to learn what a pleasure it can be to give others first choice. Mars stations in your solar fifth house of games and speculation; use caution if betting on sports because there could be upsets. The Moon will be in your sign on Christmas, so you betcha there’ll be a fiery Yule log somewhere even it it’s a fake one. It’s the one day of the year where you are allowed to be a kid again, so enjoy.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 — While you might prefer to celebrate on the weekend after Christmas, when the Moon will be in your sign, an Aries holiday is fine with you. You’ll stay toasty by the fire, and the food will great. Your ruling planet Venus enters compatible Capricorn on Friday morning. Practical (Capricorn) gifts (Venus) will probably be the order of the day, but that is OK with you. The Moon is in Taurus from 3:26 pm Saturday thru the weekend. You will, like many Taureans, probably enjoy scooping up discounted items on the after-Christmas sales. Then because you have frozen manageable portions of your bountiful holiday feasts, you can relax and just heat up dinners.

GEMINIMay 21-June 20 — Monday’s Moon-Jupiter-Neptune stellium may make it a very, very exciting and bountiful day; while you may not be a church-goer, something quite spiritual could lift you up above the shopping rush. The evening provides a challenge to your new insight with a Moon-Sun square; people may not be too willing to accept help but offer it anyway. Wednesday has a Moon-Uranus conjunction square your sign; don’t be surprised by surprises, pleasant or otherwise. You might be called on to work around a computer glitch at work. You may enjoy being with Aries friends or Leo siblings on Christmas day, and take part in whatever candle ceremony is on the agenda. It’ll be fun. Venus and Mercury will be inconjunct your own sign and force you into adjustments. Maybe more than the usual number of gifts will be returned, or you will question whether the items you gave were really worth the money.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 — Mars is stationary in your solar second house of finances. This is not a good thing if you allow yourself to get sucked into buying on credit this holiday season. Mars is interest rates, commission, and other fees tacked onto everything you buy. However, if you are the one charging those fees, then you may do quite well this month. The Aries-Moon Christmas is perfectly compatible with you; you enjoy providing the bountiful table for guests. Just make sure the heat is set on simmer because there is some chance of burning foods. Venus moves into your opposite sign the same day, so your mate just might surprise you with a meaningful gift or those three little words.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 — Monday may supply a challenge to some of your deeply felt beliefs, when Mercury is inconjunct Mars in your sign. Please let others voice their opinions without being swatted down by your mighty paw. By Wednesday you might decide that the other fellow made some good points after all. The Moon is in compatible Aries on Christmas, and you will enjoy the warmth of a fire-sign gathering. You might even ‘play Santa’ by handing out the gifts from under the tree. Venus and Mercury will be inconjunct your own sign and force you into adjustments. Maybe more than the usual number of gifts will be returned, or you will question whether the items you gave were really worth the money.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 — The Aries-Moon holiday might not sit quite right with you; there may be too much darn spontaneity ruining the agenda. But seriously, the inconjunct to your own sign suggests adjustments have to be made, like for example you have to rearrange furniture to squeeze in the clan, or you decide to stay over with an adult child. So what if everything is not perfect? I think you will appreciate the ingenuity of the day to accommodate everyone, and you will come to appreciate other family traditions. Mercury goes retrograde Saturday in your solar fifth house (Capricorn). You may have to redo matters related to investments or your children.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 — Venus and the Mercury station in square aspect to your sign from Capricorn can snarl your gift returns, so make sure you have everyone’s wish list correct regarding size/color/model. But after that, Venus can get things moving in your solar fourth house of family and home. Some relief may be in store if you have mortgage woes. Hosting a young woman visitor can be a delight and a pleasure, and you may even pick up tips on handling your personal business.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – On Monday, Mercury in your solar third house is inconjunct Mars in your solar tenth house. A short trip may take you past a business you never noticed before, a place that could become your new employer; or a job application could result in a new job. Venus enters your solar third house on Friday, warming up relationships with siblings or neighbors. Offer a plate of cookies to a neighbor or commit similar random acts of kindness. Short trips may be pleasurable. However, the temporary fly in the ointment is that Mercury goes retrograde in the same house and sign. Pack carefully, using a list, if you plan to go out of town.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Monday, Mars in your solar ninth house is challenged by Mercury in your second; legal decisions or tickets might not favor your point of view. Also any publishing projects may need extensive editing before they will be accepted for printing. Mars stationing in your solar ninth house also warns of legal fees or penalties. Venus enters your solar second house on Friday, though, and should bring increased earnings or receipts. The fire-sign Christmas holiday sits well with you; you especially enjoy or direct activities for the children. I see you keeping them busy making snowmen and snow forts.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 — Your beliefs may be strongly challenged by a Leo, due to Mercury in Capricorn inconjunct Mars. You really are not comfortable with this, but try to make a polite debate of it. Your business sense receives favorable Moon aspects midday Wednesday, but a square from the Moon on Saturday may distract you from paperwork. Also Mercury goes retrograde Saturday morning in your sign, and this can further snarl routine communications. Use delivery confirmation on emails and packages.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 — The Moon is in Aquarius from Sunday till Monday evening. You may be rather emotional and uncharacteristically dramatic Sunday, when the Moon opposes Mars. This may be set off by results of football games today, but calm down; many teams deserve to go to the playoffs but there is not room for all of them. Your emotions will also be engaged on Monday when the Moon joins Jupiter and Neptune, and sextiles Venus.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 — The Moon is in Pisces from 6:42 pm Monday till Thursday morn. On Monday night you may suddenly feel that you don’t have enough food for the holidays, but relax, you have plenty. Just pop some popcorn for snacks and ask guests to bring an extra dessert. Wednesday is significant with a Moon conjunct Uranus and sextile Mercury; you might be upset be some discoveries today, but after looking deeper into the matter, I hope you realize what a useful insight you have received. All the planets entering practical Capricorn this week (Sun, Venus) will help you feel more grounded.

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.
