Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 24-30, 2010
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury at 11 degrees Capricorn is inconjunct Mars in Leo at 8:40 pm Monday. Another in a series of adjustments will need to be made. People or entities turn out to be better (or worse) than you thought, so maybe your criteria or analysis methods will need tweaking. You may feel locked into defending your methods but give others a fair hearing, then decide. Let the pragmatic Capricorn have the upper hand this day.
Venus at 10 degrees Aquarius opposes Mars in Leo at 12:29 am Wednesday, Jan. 27. This aspect can make it too easy to use others as verbal punching bags; keep to the rules when fighting with your partner and then it is so much more fun to make up. Find constructive ways to blow off steam, then come back and figure how to broker a treaty or truce or something. Compromise is not equivalent to giving in; compromise is helping each other get what he/she wants without sacrificing everything you want.
The Sun opposes Mars in Leo at 2:43 pm Friday. This is great for making a super athletic effort but is just an argument waiting to happen otherwise. It’s good for debate, also, but please fight by the rules. Can be frustrating because the message of this aspect is that your desires may not be in harmony with what is best for your self-development. In other words, sometimes the best thing for you to do is wait and see if a better opportunity comes along; and frankly, most times a MUCH better opportunity comes along, sometimes within weeks.
A Full Moon in Leo occurs at 1:18 am Saturday with the Sun at 10 degrees Aquarius. Actually the Moon opposes the Sun first, then Venus; physical and emotional energies ebb and flow and you will need to be sensitive to your own rhythms. Push yourself to get the job done when your energy is high, and avoid trying to possess a loved one. Be content if alone or together.
Darn it, I see a lot of frustration for many signs this week, sorry about that. You will have to roll with the punches and have a Plan B on hand.
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 – I know you hate hearing the word ‘no’, Aries my dear. But these oppositions are not making life easy for anyone this week, and they may take out their frustrations on you and others just because they can. So rather, ask your bosses or coworkers or spouse what big job they wish to make disappear, and then go do it. You love a challenge, and they will just love you for your energy and initiative. Mars in your solar fifth house is challenged by the Sun and Venus opposite, but you can turn your energy to helping a local charity meet its goals.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus, the sign of its exaltation, from week’s start till early Monday, Jan. 25. The Moon sextiles Uranus at 7:25 pm Sunday, a good time for sitting down to a comedy or learning a foreign language. A square to Neptune follows, so be very careful what you eat and drink; make sure foods are well cooked. Your ruler Venus opposes Mars at 12:29 am Wednesday. This aspect can make it too easy to use others as verbal punching bags; keep to the rules when fighting with your partner and then it is so much more fun to make up.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 6:11 am Monday till Wednesday morn. Monday is an excellent day! A square to Jupiter about 9 am makes you feel positively ebullient; be big enough to overlook minor imperfections in others. A trine to Saturn about 2 pm helps you plow thru boring tasks; it’s also good for researching or seeking advice from mentors. A trine to Venus makes a date very romantic. Wednesday has mixed aspects but even the square to Uranus can surprise you with discoveries and bring new, exciting people into your life. An interesting dream hits you overnight so take notes.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer from 9 am Wednesday till Friday morn. Midday Wednesday kicks off with a super Moon trine Jupiter, newly hosted by Pisces in your solar ninth house. You could be invigorated intellectually by a seminar or lecture. Feed your hunger for learning. A square to Saturn in the afternoon means you get down, and are prone to wallowing in self-pity. It is just a passing mood, and things will be back to normal in the morning. Thursday: ‘words of love’ is the theme for the morning at least. Three little words can change everything. A trine to Uranus in the late evening favors sitting down to a comedy and forgetting the cares of the day.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 9:10 am Friday till the following Sunday. The Leo Moon sextiles Saturn Friday afternoon; you can tackle tasks with great efficiency and accuracy now, and you are also able to assess your personal situation without emotional bias. A conjunction with Mars overnight makes for intense passions. Saturday sees a Moon opposite Sun and then Venus in the morn; physical and emotional energies ebb and flow and you will need to be sensitive to your own rhythms. Push yourself to get the job done when your energy is high, and avoid trying to possess a loved one. Be content if alone or together. Late morning is good for making adjustments in communications or electronic equipment, but practice safety precautions as usual.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Monday is just one of those days, Virgo, so while matters may be focused on your career, you may have to bow to expediency to get things finalized. Run contracts by one of your adult children for an honest assessment. I see you working very late on Tuesday so don’t schedule a night out with hubby for that day; it will just be a broken date and everyone gets frustrated. Virgos may be disappointed if scheduled dates with friends or clubs fall through on Wednesday; it’s that Moon square Saturn again. Thursday is far better even though you may have to improvise a bit; a partner may know of a meeting room that’s available.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Sunday morning presents an opportunity to spend time with elders or mentors, so suggest a brunch date. Monday you turn your cute nose to the grindstone willingly and get loads done. Late Monday has an opportunity to do some constructive debate or friendly argument (what you will), whether it is in a formal environ or just on some barstool (gee, those barroom philosophers can get pretty deep).You might be called to mediate a sparring couple on late Tuesday so do whatever you are willing to do.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon in Cancer trines Jupiter newly arrived in Pisces about midday Wednesday. With your natal planets added to this watery mix, you could easily venture into deeper philosophical waters or express yourself more poignantly in art and music. The Moon trines Uranus in Pisces late Thursday, making a grand trine in water with your natal planets. Could be an emotional time, or it could be a very enjoyable evening watching movies or sharing girl talk with old friends.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Your best days this week are when the Moon is in Gemini (Mon.-early Wed.). While Geminis may have highs and lows, to you there are only highs and higher highs. Chat with an older friend Monday for a spoonful of good advice; you need it. You may also take on some responsibilities with a club or social service organization. A square to Uranus in Pisces on late Tuesday has you in stitches or putting everyone else in stitches. Also unusual people or foreigners may visit your home this week.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – On Wednesday you may butt heads with your spouse again, possibly over something as trivial as the remote or as large as whether you will let him or her take a trip alone. A relationship without trust is not much of a relationship, but do let your partner go as long as they check in by phone on a regular basis. I think that’s fair. Things go more harmoniously late Thursday, as the Moon trines Uranus in the sector of local jaunts, and you can laugh together again at your favorite local restaurant.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Wednesday has a Neptune-y tone as the Moon trines that planet in your sign; maybe it is a foggy day or you experience deja vu, but at any rate the veil may slip a little bit. Early Thursday, you finally strike up a chance conversation and may have to readjust your feelings about someone you had not thought was particularly attractive or just not a suitable match for you. Boy, you could sure be wrong about that person; he/she may turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to you.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – A square to Uranus on Tuesday night will either have you in stitches over a comedy, or a light bulb goes on when you are online as you make a great, useful discovery. The Moon trines Uranus in your sign on Thursday late-night; call up a best girlfriend for dishing and laughs. On Saturday you redefine your idea of fun, or meet some really, really unusual people. Hey, Jupiter entered your sign on the 18th, so have a fabulous and spiritual year.
