Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 31-Feb. 6, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Dear Readers: I am writing a separate column for Valentine’s Day which I am posting well ahead of this romantic date, so that all of you may try to make the most favorable plans for your day with your Significant Other.

Meanwhile, the first week of February features a Saturn square Pluto on Sunday, a Jupiter inconjunct Saturn on Friday, a Mercury sextile Uranus on Saturday morn and a Jupiter sextile Pluto on Saturday night. Capricorns are the focus of the week’s transits.

Saturn in Libra square Pluto in Capricorn at 4 degrees 21 minutes at 4:27 pm Sunday. This sounds rather grim, rather like the forest fire that consumes the stumps of the cut trees.Jupiter at about 4 degrees 13 minutes of Pisces is 150 degrees from Saturn in Libra at 3:14 am Friday. Please note that Pluto is at 4 degrees of Capricorn also, square to Saturn. STAY OUT of dangerous parts of town! Take stock of whatever in your life is just not working, and either toss it out or seek counseling on how to get a new mindset. If affecting financial houses, you may have to tighten your belt another notch or two, sorry about that.

At 3 am Saturday morn, Mercury in Capricorn happily sextiles compatible Uranus in Pisces at 24 degrees. This aspect favors probing one’s own psychological depths, gaining insights or new info from your inner self or from study/research online or wherever, writing, speaking and other forms of communication (including ESP), listening to new ideas/concepts, and ALSO buying electronic or electrical products (up to and including cars). You may meet some very unusual people under this transit, too, so strike up chance conversations wherever you are because you could learn some very interesting stuff.

And on Saturday night, Jupiter sextiles Pluto at 12:51 pm. Jupiter excels at leadership and Pluto is heavily into power. So ambitious persons might make contact with those in the power structure of whatever (corporation, politics, media, a local club or Chamber of Commerce). Remember, use powers only for good. May express itself as a time of personal recharging, regeneration, or transformation in your life (note which house in your chart is affected). If you and your spouse are trying to conceive, this bit of luck can help you reach that happy event, if it is in relevant houses of your natal chart or synastry chart.

Remember when I mentioned in my column that you should watch what happens to the stock market after the Jan. 5 Mercury-Venus conjunction? Well here it is, in a Jan. 22 news article from MSNBC on how the Dow Jones has had “its fourth big drop in five trading days” that Friday. “The Dow lost 4.1 percent this week, its worst week since it hit a 12-year low in March. It had reached its highest level since Oct. 1, 2008, only this past Tuesday, closing at 10,725.43.” See, when I said that the conjunction marked a significant point in the Venus cycle, I was not kiddin’ ya. Venus is selling right now, trying to recoup some of her paper losses while she can. She will not be shopping, filling her market bag, for several months. So I am sorry to say that from the looks of this move, there will not be a continuation of the economic recovery that we have hoped and prayed for. Recovery will not be so easy or move in a straight upward line. Mercury and Venus will not join up again till Oct. 25.

Dear Readers:

With the recent Supreme Court decision to allow corporations to usurp funding and controlling rights over American elections, we have just lost our sovereignty rights as Americans.

All attempts at keeping clean elections, and at campaign reform, have just been thrown in the ditch. This Supreme Court decision must be overturned, and failing that, the Supreme Court must be held accountable in whatever way necessary. If not, we may truly see “Manchurian Candidates” in American elections. I urge all of you to go check out AlterNet, The Pen, and for more on how to protest effectively. AlterNet has a good article at you.

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 week’s aspects to Capricorn this week will affect your solar tenth house of career and reputation. Guard your honor with extreme jealousy and refuse any hint of an illegal or scandalous offer, because things could come crashing down with alacrity. Make sure your licenses and other credentials are up to date. Friday or Saturday can bring happy news due to the Mercury-Uranus sextile affecting your solar tenth house. Perhaps an unknown person passes along good word-of-mouth about you to a future customer. Wednesday evening is best for dinner or other get-togethers with friends, under the rays of a Moon-Venus trine.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – Publishing or legal issues can get a green light by the weekend, under the rays of the Mercury-Uranus sextile. You could also meet unusual people or have a long-distance ESP experience, so take careful note of the time if you receive any strong impressions. On Saturday Jupiter in your solar eleventh house sextiles Pluto in your ninth; you might enjoy going with friends to some mind-expanding seminar, lecture or exhibit at a local college campus.

GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – The Moon in Virgo from Sunday through early Tuesday is comfortable as another Mercury-ruled sign, although you will likely spend much of the time devising adjustments or work-arounds so co-workers can get things done. Moon in air-sign Libra from Tuesday through Thursday morn is a bit less stressful. You might be saddled with some responsibility under the Moon-Saturn conjunction Tuesday afternoon, but it is time your talents were rewarded in some way. Wednesday night has fine trines from the Moon to the Sun in the morn, and then Venus in the evening; have a woman friend over for dinner or a romantic tete a tete.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 – Sunday’s Saturn-Pluto square in conflict with your natal planets may have you thinking it is the gosh darn end of the world. Career and home/family life conflict with each other and you wish you could be in both places at once. Such is life, and we all have similar times when we wish we could clone ourselves in order to meet everyone’s needs (including our own). Some good news is in sight with Saturday’s Mercury-Uranus sextile affecting your solar ninth and seventh houses (law-publishing-college-religion and your spouse or other partner). Getting centered in your spiritual core will help you weather the storms now or anytime.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon’s sextile to Mars in Leo on Tuesday night promises a exciting time with friends especially if going to a sporting event. (That afternoon you would not have thought you wanted to go anywhere in a gloomy-looking town, so take note that things can look very different a few hours later.) Your S.O. may never look lovelier than he/she does on your Wednesday dinner date, under the rays of a Moon trine to Venus in Aquarius. Be sure to tell her so.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon enters Virgo at 8:23 am Sunday and stays till Tuesday morn. The Moon opposes Jupiter about 1 pm Sunday; you may feel incredibly intense emotions, and can benefit from an emergency meditation session, hard exercise, or just watching a really good, engrossing movie. NOT a good day to visit casinos and the like, because you are much more likely to wipe out than to break the bank. Monday features a trine to ruler Mercury, when you will be more comfortable with talking things out or relaxing playing games. Visit a local attraction with your S.O. on Saturday, on impulse, and it can help rekindle a sense of fun in your relationship.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 -The Moon is in Libra from 8:42 am Tuesday till midday Thursday. A Moon inconjunct Jupiter on Tuesday afternoon may have you wondering if a counselor, lawyer or other professional really knows what he is doing. Tap into your own inner guidance for once. Consult a scientist or older person for some wisdom. Your energy is high that evening so go dancing or engage in challenging exercise. Wednesday has nice trines from the Moon to the Sun and then Venus; hang out with air-sign friends or children and have fun. A square to Mercury that night could cause a mis-communication with a family member so get your signals straight ahead of time.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 11:56 am Thursday till Saturday night about 7pm. Thursday has a splendid Moon-Jupiter trine in the evening; in your solar fifth house it favors fun gambling or just taking the kids to the zoo. On Friday you may be in too much of a hurry in the early am and have to backtrack. A Friday dinner date may not come off or be marred by conflict; a Saturday breakfast date is much better for conversation and laughs.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – Late Monday’s Moon-Uranus opposition will stress your natal planets; home and career will seem incompatible and you may have to break a family engagement. On Tuesday the Moon-Saturn conjunction in your solar fourth house of home an family can make the home seem like too, too dreary a place to be. Possibly a travelogue on DVD will help you snap out of it. The Moon enters Sag about 7 pm Saturday, just in time for a dinner with your friend who just arrived home from a fabulous trip and wants to tell you all about it. Bring the wine.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – Capricorn is going to be duly stressed or delighted by the transits this week. Sunday’s square from Saturn to Pluto in your sign will have you wishing you could just give the coup de grace to a drawn-out situation. Perhaps you agree to divorce, or resign from a job, or a death in the family has you pondering the unanswerable questions that have plagued the philosophers. Mercury in your sign sextiles Uranus early Saturday; this is great for shopping for electronics, and for unusual means of communication. Perhaps you may even have your first experience with ESP.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – Venus in your sign gets a workout this week. You may have your doubts about your romantic Other midday Monday; maybe he/she does something you would never expect, or it is just your feelings that are wavering, not the relationship. Everything is just fine on a romantic dinner date on Wednesday. Then Saturday morning may feature a minor quarrel but it is a lot of fun making up; trust me, you will be laughing together again an hour later. Love you, A.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – You may be feeling really expansive Sunday when the Moon opposes Jupiter in your sign, but please don’t ruin the budget for all of February. Your creativity is high on Tuesday afternoon, when you experiment with moving furniture or office procedures, or in counseling clients on how they may deal with their situation. Your best day is Thursday evening when the Moon in Scorpio trine your Jupiter, and sextiles Pluto in Capricorn in your solar eleventh house. You may rise to an officer position with a local club or charity, which could possibly even gain you some national press notices. Congrats!

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.
