Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 7-13, 2010
By Milky Way Maid
Neptune goes direct on Sun., Nov. 7 at 1:04 am at 25 degrees, 55 minutes of Aquarius. BTW Daylight Savings Time ends at 2 am, so I wonder if there will be some more glitches than normal this year, when people and computers neglect to turn their clocks back.
Venus enters her second home, Libra, at 10:06 pm Sun., Nov. 7. The evening debut allows her to put on one her most striking gowns, complete with starry jewels for her ears and fingers. By all means, welcome Venus to her sign with a lighted candle, pink anything, and someone to cuddle up with tonight. Venus here is so darn nice that others suspect they are being phony or superficial. THEY’RE NOT!! They really ARE that nice! Tho the frustrations of the day can boil over when they get home and then they might take things out on mate or whoever is unlucky enough to get in their way. They definitely need a safe place to vent their ‘stuff’, possibly with boxing gloves and punching bag, or maybe just kicking a pillow, or tossing a ball at the garage wall. Whatever works for ya, Libby, just don’t let stuff fester. To fester is bad, very bad.
Now, a Libra woman’s worst habit is giving in just to keep the peace. Going along with whatever others want to order on a pizza, or giving up a part of yourself because you think it takes time away from your relationship is exactly the WRONG thing to do, especially in relationships. The guy wants to know what you are passionate about, and giving in all the time, or abandoning hobbies that you love, make you less of a person worth loving. So thin twice about this stuff, and find more creative ways of compromising. Take turns ordering the pizza toppings, or try to get your friend interested in your hobby (at least long enough to listen to you rave on about how marvelous it is for you), and then see what happens.
Venus gets a helpful boost from the Moon (emotional support) Tuesday morning (sextile), and overnight Sat-Sun (trine), but NOT on Thursday afternoon when a square to the Moon makes you feel unloved and unwanted, you ‘pore thang.’
Mercury enters Sagittarius at 6:43 pm Monday; your intellect seeks answers tho not necessarily in classrooms. You might want to travel or discuss things with people all over the world; with the internet, now the whole globe is at your fingertips. Mercury here is quick to point out biases or prejudices in others, but rather blind to his own biases. Be that as it may, he still loves to debate and is good at injecting some enthusiasm for intellectual jousting. Play devils advocate with him if you like, but do not expect him to concede any point to you.
[Yes, I skipped a regular week because I covered the holiday in a special column on Halloween costumes. That covered all the major aspects for the general period, though I apologize if you have been left disappointed by the absence of a column for Oct.31-Nov. 6. Again I am sorry, but I have just been floundering with so many other issues since the end of August, and I just need a tiny breather. Thank you for your understanding.]
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 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar seventh house of partners. Your partner looks better than ever to you, and you enjoy learning new ways to express how much he/she means to you. Mercury enters Sag, your solar ninth house of higher learning; the month looks good for making progress in school. The Moon’s first aspect to Mercury is a sextile early Friday; you can ask a friend for information, or borrow a book from him.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar sixth house of health and mundane work. You can gain extra work from a hobby; try listing your crafts online or rent a booth at a holiday craft show. Your second job could offer overtime, too. Mercury enters Sag, your solar eighth house of pooled resources, insurance and estates. Re-submit insurance claims or put it thru an appeal process via your state insurance commissioner’s office.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar fifth house of romance and creativity. Lucky you, that’s the perfect place for Venus to help you get something going romance-wise. Get some tips tho before listing your personal ad online, from Rori Raye or other communications counselors. Mercury enters Sag, your solar seventh house of partners. You may become actively involved in social media, writing-writing-writing, or reporting. Your writing becomes more public, like getting a byline in a local paper, your own blog, doing interviews re your new book, etc. Radio is a wonder medium, too, for Geminis; check out creating your own internet radio show.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar fourth house of home and family. Venus here wants to beautify, maybe with a choice piece of art, maybe just with new pillows and drapes. Libra favors art tints, so see if there is something in turquoise or peach that can perk up your living space. Mercury enters Sag, your solar sixth house of health and also mundane work. You may be juggling extra jobs, possibly involving delivery or messenger service. Make sure your car is tuned up or you could run up more expenses for gas, etc. than the work is worth. Mercury in the sixth house can also bring nervousness; stick to your getting-ready-for-bed routine to encourage proper sleep. Resort to natural treatments like warm baths, supplemented with valerian, melatonin or with chamomile tea before bed.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar third house of communications, education, and siblings. Romance can blossom in a bookstore, office supply shop, online, from a newspaper personals ad. Get tips from an online counselor on what works in personal ads and replies before posting yours. Mercury enters Sag, your solar fifth house of romance and creativity. You may post a personal ad online and begin sorting thru many replies. If you are serious about this avenue of searching for a partner, discipline yourself with a speed dating program or you will be overwhelmed. Alternatively, you might explore a book club as a way of finding a kindred spirit. Also Mercury here favors the use of your hands in skilled crafts, and favors the sale of your creative works. Open a store on Etsy or place items on consignment.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar second house of money. This is lucky for sales, arts and crafts, music and other performing arts, especially if you work in partnership. Mercury enters Sag, your solar fourth house of home and family. You may host a young person in your home, possibly an exchange student or a child’s pen-pal; look into adding a playroom or library. You might play host to a book or Bible study group, and that be a rewarding experience.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Venus enters your sign Sunday, and the urge to find someone to share your life with becomes impossible to ignore. You also enjoy pampering yourself a bit, possibly at a day spa or your favorite salon. Mercury enters Sag, your solar third house of communications, so this is obviously a spot where Mercury is at home. Messages pick up in volume, whether via phone, email, text, or in other online mailboxes. You may field many more requests than usual for information or for an appointment.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Venus enters your twelfth house on Sunday, a placement that can mean you do yourself no favors with money, or eat too many sweets. Don’t sabotage your diet yet again; read about strategies in new book, The Stress-Eating Cure: Lose Weight With The No Willpower Solution. Mercury enters Sag, your solar second house of money and possessions. This could favor selling, so look around for items that you can post on eBay or craigslist. It is possible you could earn money through your voice, so if you have talents at singing, interviewing, emceeing, or voiceover, seek an agent if you don’t already have one.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from week’s start till Tuesday morning. The Moon-Mars conjunction in Sag on Sunday afternoon fires up your passions, tho take care to avoid pointless argument. Definitely do something you love. Mercury enters your sign at 6:43 pm Monday; your intellect seeks answers tho not necessarily in classrooms. You might want to travel or discuss things with people all over the world; with the internet, now the whole globe is at your fingertips. Put up an inquiry and early replies may be unhelpful, probably on Thursday you may get some positive response.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 8:37 am Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. A Moon-Pluto conjunction Tuesday afternoon brings heavy-duty issues to the fore; things like what kind of legacy you want to leave behind to the world (a book, a life’s work, your children), writing a will, etc. A Moon-Saturn square Wed. morn can make you feel inadequate or unimportant, but try to ignore that passing mood. Sextiles that evening and next morn are much more encouraging. Venus enters Libra in your solar tenth house, where you might be amply rewarded for career efforts this fall — especially if you are in a Venus-ruled field like music, bakery, candy, banking, cattle, fine furniture and art, etc.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 5:32 pm Thursday till next Sunday morn. The Moon sextiles Mercury, Mars and trines disciplined Saturn on Friday, helping you clear your desk of a pile of work. Your drive carries over to Saturday, but a Moon-Neptune square that night favors knocking off work in favor movie night instead. Make sure you give yourself proper fuel breaks Saturday so you don’t get a sugar-deficit crash by evening. You may revive an old romance Sat. night, but be aware that it could go either way; you may patch things over, or you may remember why you broke up.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – On Sunday, Venus enters Libra, your solar eighth house of pooled resources, insurance and estates. Try resubmitting your receipts for reimbursement from your insurer; make followup inquiries re claims that have been denied or delayed pending verification. Mercury enters Sag, your solar tenth house on Monday night. The tempo picks up at work, with more inquiries and quote requests, and if you are seeking a position, you may land more contacts and interviews this month. Step up your efforts in all media and post multiples of your resume, ads, or other notices.
