Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 21-27, 2010
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun is sextile Pluto in Capricorn at 11:31 am Tuesday, at almost 5 degrees of Pisces-Capricorn. Pluto lends the power to transform the self (Sun), especially for natives of the sign Pisces. Perhaps Capricorn will lend the strength to organize your life and achieve an ambition.
Thursday evening kicks off with an emotional Moon-Mars conjunction in Leo, great for competition in sports or games. It can also give vent to anger but if you work off excess physical energy safely, there is less likelihood of that.
Avoid shopping or emailing early Saturday; the Mercury-Neptune conjunction in Aquarius is sure to mess things up. It might be fun tho to experiment with ESP or thought transfer.
A Sun-Jupiter conjunction kicks off Sunday Feb. 28, at 5:44 am. Make an effort to mentally create the positive world you know is waiting to be born, if you will only focus the thoughtforms on a Jovian spirit or ideal. What do you want most to see? World peace, justice, equality, abundance, etc? A Jupiter in Pisces yearns to make all of these things come to life, to YOUR life.
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 – Early on Wednesday, a Moon-Pluto opposition activates your fourth house-tenth house axis. There is going to be a tug-of-war between the two main obligations in your life; emotional swings are possible, but try to give your family your full attention when with them. Being fully present is a gift to everyone who means anything to you. The Moon conjunct Mars in Leo activates your gambling instincts in your solar fifth house on Thursday night. Host the poker game or test your skills at darts, shall we? But try to guard against your impulsiveness taking over your game.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus till early afternoon on Sunday. Alas you have just a few short hours to enjoy the Moon, exalted in Taurus. A sextile to Uranus and square to Neptune in the early morn give you a chance to break through the fog and see a ray of light and truth. Alas, again, it may ruin the beautiful illusion that made life bearable in some way, but you would have learned the truth at some point anyway. Vaya con dios, as they say, and let go of illusions willingly. Your ruler Venus is in a lovely and powerful triple trine on Wednesday; the Moon trines the Sun, Jupiter and Venus in order, with the latter occurring about 11 pm. Arrange a nice romantic dinner with your special person.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 1:47 pm Sunday till Tuesday evening. The morning might be spent in pj’s but you are in action for the pm under a sextile to Mars. Dinner hour is restrictive and uneasy, under a square to the Sun and a trine to Saturn. But during the evening you might broach issues with a spouse or parent, who might be receptive to adjustments in duties or curfews. Moon squares to Jupiter and Venus on Monday may prompt you to demand your RDA of hugs from others today. A trine to Mercury late evening gives you the giggles over wordplay. Tuesday goes much more easily except for a bit of an upset mid-morn. A trine to Neptune can lend spiritual peace at midday.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in its home in Cancer from 6:29 pm till Thursday night. A Moon-Saturn square late Tuesday pushes you to get chores done but let others help. Sunny trines light the way on Wednesday; the Moon trines the Sun, Jupiter and Venus in order thru the day and makes exchanging love and favors easy for all. Adjustments rule the day on Thursday. That can mean anything from moving furniture to creating a work-around. Plus a trine to Uranus at midday lets you see the humor in life.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in showy Leo from 8:08 pm till Saturday night. Thursday evening kicks off with an emotional Moon-Mars conjunction, great for competition in sports or games. It can also give vent to anger but if you work off excess physical energy safely, there is less likelihood of that. Inconjuncts on Friday from the Moon to Pluto, Sun and Jupiter in turn, call for adjustments in your personal power structure. Since these planets are in your solar eighth house, it is possible that some kind of estate bequest or insurance settlement allows you to do something you have longed for.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon trines ruler Mercury for night owls late Mon/early Tues. You like to keep regular hours but you could get engrossed in email or interesting chats. The Moon is inconjunct Mercury Thursday morn; you may have to adjust your communication style, or perhaps accommodate someone with a hearing or visual impairment. The Moon opposes Mercury Saturday afternoon; you will have to work to balance mental and emotional energies. The Moon enters Virgo at 7:52 pm Saturday. It makes no aspects that night but the first one on Sunday is a trine to Pluto, giving you thoughts about how to reclaim power over some aspect of your life.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Moon trines Saturn on Sunday evening, when you enjoy time with an older relative or friend. The Moon squares ruler Venus on Monday afternoon, bringing opportunities to make money altho you will have to work for it. Give your best advice, not necessarily what the customer wants to hear. Moon square Saturn in your sign on Tuesday night can be very frustrating. Your ruler Venus is in a lovely and powerful triple trine on Wednesday; the Moon trines the Sun, Jupiter and Venus in order, with the latter occurring about 11 pm. Arrange a nice romantic dinner with your special person.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon sextiles ruler Mars late afternoon Sunday; you enjoy competing in games or sports, or joining friends to watch a telecast. The Moon is conjunct Mars in Leo late Thursday; this can pull you into stubbornly defending your side of an argument. You can win the fight but lose the relationship, so watch out. It is good, tho, for athletic competition. Sunday is the most enjoyable, and Thursday is the most intense. Take your choice.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon squares ruler Jupiter early Monday; try to reach international customers before your office hours for the best results. Ruler Jupiter is in a lovely and powerful triple trine on Wednesday; the Moon trines the Sun, Jupiter and Venus in order. The Jupiter trine is at 9:20 am so if you can schedule presentations or legal transactions, by all means take advantage of some extra luck. Other than the above, the Moon in compatible Leo from Thursday evening till Saturday night are your best days.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon trines your ruler, Saturn, on Sunday night; but the signs are not really compatible with yours. You may be able to plug away at work but it will be an uphill effort. The Moon squares Saturn very late on Tuesday; I think your spouse pulls you away from working too late. You do need your rest, you know. But I think you pull late hours again the following night, perhaps with better results because you got some rest.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mercury in your sign sextiles Ceres in Sag early Friday. It is not too early to plan the spring planting, even tho there is snow on the ground outside. You may even dream about gardening matters now; take cues from the spirit seriously. Do not shop or email early Saturday; the Mercury-Neptune conjunction is sure to mess things up. It might be fun tho to experiment with ESP or thought transfer.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – A pleasant Moon-Uranus sextile adds humor and laughs to a morning with a friend. The Sun in Pisces is sextile Pluto in Capricorn at midday on Tuesday. Positive aspects to Pluto help you master yourself, so try to break that bad habit you made a New Year’s resolution about. A Moon-Uranus square mid-morn on Tuesday can be emotionally frustrating, but upsets over electronic malfunctions are not worth it. Midday Thursday has a nice Moon-Uranus trine, when electronics, humor, and foreign languages are positive. Make adjustments to software or other electronic items on Saturday.
