Your Milky Way Horoscope March 6-12, 2011
By Milky Way Maid
Have all of you been following the drawn-out struggle between the Wisconsin governor and the union members who stand in danger of losing their hard-won right to collective bargaining? I am guessing it is related to the transiting square between Jupiter and Pluto; Pluto rules unions and other mass movements. Jupiter is the Republican party, among other things, and the GOP-ers want to break the unions in order to cripple Democratic fund-raising sources. This is about money, all right, but not state budget money, it’s CAMPAIGN money.
The square was/will be exact on Feb. 26, when the protest will be at almost the two-week mark. (This is being written the week of Feb. 22) I hesitate to make any predictions of the outcome, because I have limited internet access right now and cannot research the gov, Wisconsin statehood (all I know is 1848), or this union. But Pluto lingers at 7 degrees Capricorn till late May, going retrograde on April 9. I think Pluto is gathering immense public support for unions like we have not seen in decades, having picked up energy from the North Node at zero Capricorn this winter.
Folks, it is vitally important that we support the right to organize; blood was shed in the historical struggle to gain this right, and we cannot allow the sacrifices of union pioneers to go for naught now. You might send donations to Ian’s Pizza on State Street in Madison, WI, which has shut down normal operations in order to focus on making and delivering pizzas to the union protesters in the Capitol a block away. Thank you!
The Sun at 15-16 degrees Pisces is inconjunct Saturn in Libra at 3:26 pm Sunday. I notice that Saturn sometimes represents the experts, the pundits, the oddsmakers, etc. And whatever planet that Saturn is inconjunct with, represents the thing that the experts have to re-evaluate. Like, the Moon would be the public. The experts may misjudge what the public mood is or what they will do, and so the experts go back to the old drawing board. Here the Sun could represent the president, heads of state, fathers in general, gold (gold prices), etc. So for example, maybe the pundits will totally err in predicting what Pres. Obama will do, or his popularity rating. Maybe the gold bugs will totally err in predicting what gold prices will be.
Mercury at 29 degrees Pisces is conjunct Uranus at 11:05 am Wednesday. Impulsiveness and nervousness can lead to accidents. Not a good day to schedule your first driver’s license road test. Having said that, it is a day when creative ideas will just bombard you from all directions. Make notes to self thru the day to keep from losing them all. BTW you might also have psychic experiences if 29 degrees occurs in your natal chart.
Mercury enters Aries at 12:47 pm Wednesday. Mercury in Aries can be challenging to others, if Aries speaks in that aggressive or even overbearing way he has sometimes. But on the other hand, when Aries gets the hang of inspiring others with the thrill of meeting a challenge, he is capable of getting the best out of employees, buddies or members of the Scout troop he leads.
Venus at 9 degrees Aquarius sextiles Jupiter in Aries at 7:25 am Thursday. Venus loves her sugar daddy, yes she does. Supposed to be favorable for financial investments, especially if related to medicine, education, or foreign entities. Legal (ruled by Jupiter) decisions may be in your favor. It’s a sociable aspect, so throw a party or do some networking. Favorable for starting new relationships.
Uranus enters Aries again at 7:49 pm Friday. Uranus here is a very bold and innovative pioneer. Aries translates Uranian energy into new directions for mankind. Aries is the way-show-er, the pathfinder, and Uranus will lead Aries into new frontiers in technology, mechanics, new sources of electrical power, and into harnessing our creative and psychic powers as we may never have done before.
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 – The Moon is in Aries from 12:14 am Sunday till midday Tuesday. A Sunday brunch will be quite enjoyable especially if you take a lady friend along. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter in Aries Sunday evening. You will feel generous and expansive, and will probably treat someone to a dinner out. Try not to overdo on drinks and dessert, tho. Monday morn may be rather depressing under Saturn’s rays but ignore this passing mood. Midday Tuesday, the martini lunch may be tempting under Neptune’s influence, but think it over. Mercury and Uranus enter your sign this week; you may be bursting with the energy of spring and wanting to make new starts in new fields. Make notes on all the ideas you have and try to toss them around with a friend or mentor.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 12:52 pm Tuesday till very early Friday. A health practitioner friend may have just the thing to help you feel better Tuesday afternoon. You might try to break a habit during Lent this year; Pluto will help you take control over whatever area of your life. Maybe you give up sweets or sugar, since the Moon squares Venus (sugar, bakery, etc) on Wed. morn. Friends may seem jittery or erratic under the Mercury-Uranus conjunction. You might look askance at some reports from the so-called experts Wed. night. An early breakfast or run with a Pisces friend is favored Thursday morn, but steer clear of the dessert tray. Confusion reigns under Neptune midday Thursday, but light begins to glimmer overnight under Uranus.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 12:31 am Friday till next Sunday morn. A Moon-Mercury sextile favors a pre-work chat with an Aries friend. You might tinker with insurance or union checkoffs to get the best deal for yourself. Now that Aries friend may show up for dinner or after, and you will have a great time under Jove’s rays. Saturday is igotaroundtuit day as you check things off your to-do list. Dinner hour may have some friction under a Sun-Moon square; maybe it is better to eat out and let everyone order what they want. Mercury and Uranus enter your solar eleventh house this week; a friend may be terribly upset or nervous, so offer a sympathetic ear. The friend may also be in a quandary over multiple ideas about what to do; first settle them down, and make notes on all these ideas for a calm evaluation later.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The Mercury-Uranus conjunction in your solar ninth house on Wednesday could bring upsetting news, or information about a windfall (Uranus in both cases). On Thursday, see if there are any new options with your employer’s 401K plan; the Venus-Jupiter sextile favors investments and Venus will be in a money house for you. Uranus re-enters your solar tenth house of career on Friday (Mercury entered Aries on Wednesday); work may become more erratic, or new technology may change the way you conduct business. Uranus here is actually rather good if you are a consultant rather than a 9-to-5 drudge.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mercury and Uranus move into Aries, your solar ninth house of law, college, religion, publishing and global communications (the internet). The conjunction is a bit problematic, so don’t be surprised if classes or cases have to be rescheduled due to technical problems. BUT if attending a bull session make lots of notes to capture the ideas that zoom around. Venus in your solar seventh house sextiles Jupiter in your solar ninth house on Thursday; legal judgments could be decided in your favor, or the opponent may decide to drop charges.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Mercury-Uranus conjunction on Wednesday in Pisces might presage a very nervous spouse or partner. You may have to spend some time talking through worries. Mercury and Uranus Aries, enter your solar eighth house this week; you may decide to take a whole different approach to your insurance or estate issues. Be wary of changing agents just to make a change, tho. The good news is that you may win a little something in the office pool Thursday under a favorable Venus-Jupiter sextile.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Sorry to tell you this, Libra, but your expert opinion may be proven wrong on Sunday. Well, exceptions prove the rule, don’t they? And this is one time that the exception will rear its inconvenient head. Mercury and Uranus enter your solar seventh house this week; you may feel like your partner is not there for you when you need him/her. But keeping the lines of communication open on a daily basis will go far to keep your bonds strong. I am sure that your partner is just focusing on making a good life for you both.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Mercury and Uranus enter your solar sixth house this week; you may finally get some work on the side, possibly involving Uranus fields like electrical, computers, mechanics, psychology, or astrology — or Mercury fields like writing, reporting, transit, getting that novel finished. Venus in your solar fourth house of home/family sextiles Jupiter in your sixth house of work/health on Thursday. A relative may offer a job in a family business, or offer a job lead. Or you may latch onto a job where you can work from home or in homes/ hotels.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mercury and Uranus enter your solar fifth house this week; you may meet some adventurous, creative people who are just brimming with new ideas. This might be easier to handle in the artistic realm than in the dating scene. Take that advanced class in oil painting or sculpting. Keep a notebook handy for all the ideas for art projects that fly at you; you won’t be able to apply then all at once and it may keep you busy for years.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Mercury and Uranus enter your solar fourth house this week; boy, wiring and anything electrical could act up. Be safety conscious and make sure things are grounded, etc. Venus in your solar second house of money sextiles Jupiter in your solar house of home/family. A family business may prosper, or going into some venture with a relative may work out well financially.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mercury and Uranus enter your solar third house this week; appliances, cars and computers may act up. Wait till this transit settles down a bit, then your purchase of a new toy may work out very well. Venus in your sign sextiles Jupiter in Aries on Thursday; you and the right friend may have super luck together.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Pisces natives may be on the hot seat Sunday, with your natal planets and the Sun inconjunct Saturn in Libra; it may seem like a boss or other authority is not happy with anything you do. Mercury and Uranus are conjunct in Pisces at midday Wednesday. These two planets can be very volatile when conjunct, so just keep an eye out for safety in whatever you do today. Pay attention to stray electricity, and check the wiring on lamps and appliances. Mercury and Uranus enter your solar second house this week; since it is in Aries, it favors starting new ventures or striking out on your own. Just be aware, that income may be highly variable at first.
