Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 24-30, 2010
By Milky Way Maid
Sunday, Oct. 24 features Mars at 27 degrees of Scorpio, trine Uranus in Pisces at 10:56 am. Mars-Uranus aspects favor mechanical objects, so this could be a good day to buy anything from a car, to an appliance (especially if it has sharp cutting edges), or possibly some type of sporting or exercise equipment. Uranus is still very close to Jupiter, and Jove sextiles the Moon in Taurus that evening. I’m always a little leery of Jupiter if one is buying something, because it could be far more expensive than you bargained for; so by all means carefully consider whether you get your money’s worth on a given item. You may be better off renting a piece of equipment, buying used, or offering to rent or swap with a neighbor or relative.
Mercury and Venus rendezvous for a passionate meetup at 7 degrees of Scorpio at 9:17 am Monday. This aspect is a key part of the economic cycle so investors should pay particular attention to the economic news over the weekend and on Monday. Due to the fact that this occurs in Scorpio, and the fact that Venus is still retrograde, it is likely that sales of distressed or overstock merchandise is likely to move faster than regular merchandise. On a personal level, it may become easier to express your affection with loved ones. Scorpio is often silent, but this is one time that speaking up about one’s feelings may be an absolute necessity if one’s relationship is to survive these tough times.
The Sun and Venus warm up the passions at 5 degrees Scorpio at 9:10 pm on Thursday. You might even succeed at rekindling an old flame. Who’s your sugar daddy? Scorpio, contrary to its popular image as a Lothario, is really a very dedicated romantic partner. It is a fixed sign after all, and Scorpio’s spiritual depth often translates as a long-lived relationship that deepens over time. When Scorpio wants you, he wants all of you and he wants you forever.
Mars enters compatible fire-sign Sagittarius at 2:48 am Thursday, Oct. 28. Mars here is rather strong and very interested in major league sports, plus horseback riding, fencing, and skiing.
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 – Your ruler Mars enters fellow fire-sign Sag at 2:48 am Thursday, Oct. 28. Mars in your solar ninth house is good for major-league sports performance; however it may be problematical in other ninth-house stuff like legal disputes, lots of fees or debt in relation to college expenses, etc. Mars is excellent for debate and competition, so if there are favorable Mercury transits to your natal planets, by all means try your luck. The Sun-Venus conjunction (also on Thursday) is in your solar eighth house of sex, lucky you.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The week of the 24th starts with Moon in Taurus, and remains till Monday morning. A Moon-Neptune square Sunday night may lure you into a movie marathon; you just want to cocoon with your DVDs and the popcorn. Monday morning larks enjoy a Moon-Uranus sextile, which offers insights and humorous surprises, and a Moon-Mars opposition, which means that arguments go nowhere, so try to think if it is worth it. The Monday and Thursday conjunctions in Scorpio, in your solar seventh house, put the accent on romantic relationships; a sextile to Pluto can add depth and mystery. A mystery that you’d be willing to spend the rest of your life unraveling.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 7:47 am Monday till Wednesday afternoon. A whole lot of inconjuncts demand a mental readjustment from you. The Moon makes this aspect to the Sun, Pluto with Ceres nearby, Venus, and Mars. It Moon is actually the focus of a Yod aspect, with Pluto and the personal planets on the other legs. Things may be fated, but you can show how to overcome even the highest odds against you. Also creativity is king today. Tuesday is much easier, with a Moon-Saturn trine in early am to help you knock off your to-do list. Wednesday starts off with a Moon-Neptune trine; ideal for starting the day with a pre-work swim. Be careful to stick to your usual breakfast, as unfamiliar foods could upset your system. A Moon-Uranus square at mid-morning can be upsetting, but there is the chance of a flash of insight putting everything in a new light.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer (its home) from 3:14 pm Wednesday till Friday evening. The Moon opposes Pluto in Capricorn Wednesday evening; you run into a wall of opposition to anything you propose. Wait till the Moon-Sun trine about 11:35 pm, you will find a kindred soul if not material support. The wee hours of Thursday start off with a Moon-Venus trine, then a Moon-Mercury trine in the afternoon. They’re in your solar fifth house of fun, children, romance, and games. This favors everything from playing a word games, writing, teaching youngsters, or catching up on reading. The Sun-Venus conjunction at 9:10 pm Thursday warms up the romance department so set up a late date.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars enters compatible Sag early Thursday. Your interest in sports is accented, whether as a spectator or player. Make a point to round up some friends for a regular pickup game at least to early December, because your energies will demand a release somewhere. The Moon is in Leo from 8:39 pm Friday till next Sunday night. A Moon-Mars trine late Friday favors attending a sporting event or a pickup game of your own. The Leo Moon squares all the Scorpio planets in turn on Saturday, which will probably make for a frustrating weekend. You will feel like no one loves you, no one knows your name, no one calls you. Consulting with a mentor or older sibling that afternoon will be helpful.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars enters Sag early Thursday, in your solar fourth house. This can be problematical; Mars here can lead to arguments and even fires. Place a mirror over fireplaces to cool this feng shui element; place a symbolic piece of wood between stoves and sinks if they are adjacent. There is the possibility that you might host a male visitor, and in that case make a careful analysis of yours and the visitor’s charts ahead of time. The Sun, Mercury and Venus make conjunctions this week in your solar third house of communications; you could possibly get paid for an article or report, or for teaching. Promote yourself as a facilitator of workshops or lectures on your specialty.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Sun, Mercury and Venus make conjunctions this week in Scorpio, your solar second house. This can be quite profitable to you, if you are able to time things favorably. Your sales can pick up this week, so put out special promotions; never mind the print ads that have to be bought weeks in advance, just put out a sign board for passersby, or notices on craigslist.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun, Mercury and Venus make conjunctions in your sign this week, Scorp, so look sharp and have your spiel ready. Scorpio is not really a natural salesperson, but you gain the gift of gab this week with Mercury’s help, and can find the right words for each customer. Put up notices of what you have to sell, on a signboard or on craigslist, and see what happens. Work a local show to good profits, or consign your items to local shops. Sales are out there, Scorp, and you price your stuff fairly.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars enters your sign on Thursday, Sag. See notes about that above. Mars here is very comfortable, very energetic, and you will be looking for places to burn off your ample energies till at least early December. Sag likes big-league sports, horseback riding, skiing, and fencing. You might try to get a few friends together for weekly treks to the slopes or stables.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Sun, Mercury and Venus make conjunctions this week in your solar eleventh house of friends. You gain by friends and thru clubs or other groups you belong to. You may sell items or find stuff you’ve been looking for. Either way, it should be a good week for business for you. Your ruler Jupiter gets a sextile from the Moon on Sunday evening, and a trine Friday morn; try to make your pitches in those time slots. A Moon-Jupiter square early Wednesday is less favorable, but if you can dig in and make a harder sell, you might pull it off.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mars enters Sag on Thursday, in your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs. Mars here could indicate a new male friend, but just as easily can indicate arguments and disputes. Be careful what you say; you might get off by offering to settle things with a game of darts or basketball, whatever kind of competition you think would be fair. Mars is competition, and if you can stand to be competitive with your friends, then by all means enjoy a game well-played. Favorable transits accent your solar tenth house of career; sales and general business reports are positive, and you could land a good account personally.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Mars enters your solar tenth house of career in the sign of Sag. Mars here adds competitiveness to the office. That can be acutely uncomfortable for a Pisces, but if you can turn it into a game, with others or just with yourself, you can do well here. Just be careful of careless remarks that may engender argument and unintentional slights. The Sun, Mercury and Venus in compatible Scorpio make positive conjunctions this week and can ignite positive movement in your solar ninth house (law, publishing, religion, higher education). Check back with the career services department of the alma mater, since they may have the right job listing for you. Chat online with a lawyer for free, and find a way thru your current legal impasse.
