Your Milky Way Horoscope May 22-28, 2011
By Milky Way Maid
The Sun in Gemini (at almost 1 degree) squares Neptune in Pisces at 3:31 am Sunday morning (May 22). Most of us will be asleep, of course, so one interpretation is simply an active dream life. Another possibility is that people will wake up all fuzzy brained and this could last through their commutes, so be alert out there. Neptune in hard aspects to the Sun saps our energy and clouds our judgment. Best thing is to just relax by the pool, as Neptune is quite watery and having water nearby calms and restores us.
Venus is conjunct Mars at 8 degrees Taurus at 4:25 am Monday. NOTE This is a critical degree. You never really know what is going to happen but pay attention to the news today because whatever enters the scene will be something significant: a company’s public offering, a new player in global politics, etc. Venus-Mars conjunctions in natal charts give the native high energy; in a transiting chart it favors male-female relationships. In fact you may meet a lovely Other who brightens your life, but this aspect does not BY ITSELF guarantee any long-term quality to the match (although just the fact that it is in fixed-sign Taurus does tend to help it stick around a bit). This could be the start of something big, to quote the Steve Allen song.
Venus in Taurus is inconjunct Saturn at 10 degrees Libra at 2:47 pm Tuesday. Time to revise one’s budget to reduce expenditures yet again. Adapt to what is: the economy may be getting better but not very quickly, while inflation is on the prowl. And the usual spring gouge at the gas pumps is in progress as we speak, so people just have less disposable income. (This aspect was preceded by Mercury inconjunct Saturn on Monday morning. That was just to introduce some fresh data into the equation. It is then followed by Mars inconjunct Saturn, forcing us to take actions in accordance with our new budget, and to bend our wills to our new goals.)
The Sun in Gemini is inconjunct Pluto at 6 degrees Capricorn at 10:38 am Saturday, May 28. Now you really will be stared down by the seemingly unalterable Way Things Are in your life today, but at the same time you have an opportunity to reprogram yourself for a better future. You can only change yourself, when you come right down to it. You can design your own affirmations or look up the nifty stuff available online, or visit a practitioner who does GeoTrans or related kinesiology reprogramming.
I am posting astrology books for sale on Amazon this weekend. Just a couple titles for now to be followed by small batches as I get them posted, etc. Watch for my mini reviews and the links to the listings.
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 8:36 pm Thursday till next Sunday morning. The Moon makes no exact aspects Thursday night but early Friday it is conjunct Uranus. This is an emotionally turbulent aspect, with possible upsets regarding a female relative; let this pass until you can discuss things calmly (about 8:30 am things are more harmonious with a Sun-Moon sextile). You may feel constrained by duty in early evening under a Moon-Saturn opposition; when duty calls, you do tend to answer so just get ‘er done. No exact aspects on Saturday so just enjoy your day.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – On Monday you may get a new burst of energy as Mars and Venus are conjunct in your sign. See notes above for more insights. You might accept a blind date for today and not regret it; relationships can strike new sparks although I don’t promise anything. But this could be the start of something big, to quote the Steve Allen song. In other news, the Moon in Pisces sextiles the Taurus stellium on Wednesday; check out friends and organizations to see if they can help you with whatever personal obstacles you have.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The Sun in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces in the predawn on Sunday; they are at almost one degree of their signs. Neptune at hard aspects to the Sun saps our energy and clouds our judgment. Best thing is to just relax by the pool, as Neptune is quite watery and having water nearby calms and restores us. The Sun squares Chiron Thursday evening; guard your health, wash hands, toss old leftovers, and put on the light when climbing steps. An inconjunct from your Sun to Pluto in Capricorn mid-morning Saturday gives you an opportunity to reprogram your psyche and regain control of your life.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Monday’s Mars-Venus conjunction in Taurus may mean that a friend suddenly looks to have much more potential in the relationship department. It might well be worth cultivating this new dimension. The Moon in compatible Pisces makes easy sextiles to the Taurus stellium most of the day on Wednesday. Friends and organizations may figure in helping move legal and publishing issues forward.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Sunday may be frustrating or challenging depending on how you look at it; Moon in Aquarius opposes your natal planets and squares the Taurus stellium all day. You may recover your old enthusiasm for the job under the Mars-Venus conjunction in your solar tenth house of career. The Moon enters compatible Aries on Thursday night, making no aspects that day. But on Friday, an early morning sextile to the Sun in Gemini favors communications. A Moon-Saturn opposition in the evening helps you stick to a course of computer-based training.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – On Sunday morning the Sun in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces; combined with your natal planets, this will make an uncomfortable T-square; someone may throw a snow job at you so I do not recommend shopping that day. The Venus-Mars conjunction in compatible Taurus recharges your batteries and may bring an interesting new coed on campus. Or, a dynamo of a lawyer may take your case and make quick work of it, helping you to recover money.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in compatible Aquarius as the week begins, but the squares to the Taurus stellium can may make things a bit of an exercise in frustration. The Moon in your opposite sign on Friday may make for the best day of the week. There’s a challenge mid-morning to Pluto (the boss breathes down your neck) but other than that, the morning’s good and with Saturn’s help you can get much done all day.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Wow, Monday’s Mars-Venus conjunction is in your seventh house of partners; and someone will sure be in your face and looking like the perfect match for you. Introduce yourself and get that phone number before parting, then take your time getting acquainted. Taurus will not be rushed, you know. The Moon in compatible Pisces sextiles all those Taurus planets on Wednesday, so it might be a good day for a followup date, or for playing games and sports.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Sun squares Neptune very early Sunday, sapping one’s energy and possibly making conditions rainy or foggy. Not a good morn for the early jog. The Sun-Moon square on Tuesday afternoon can make an uncomfortable (OK, we will call it Challenging) T-square with your natal planets. Give yourself what a friend used to call a ‘challenge piece’ and see if you can get ‘er done by the end of the day.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The lovely Venus-Mars conjunction occurs early Monday in your solar fifth house of romance, you lucky dog you. Pay attention when an attractive Other drifts into your line of vision. Offer to treat to lunch or dinner, something, anything. This could be the start of something big, to quote the Steve Allen song. On Friday morn, the Moon-Uranus conjunction may throw your household into a tizzy; do whatever you have to in order to set things right again.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from Sunday till early Tuesday. Mid-afternoon is filled with all these squares from the Moon to the stellium in stubborn Taurus; perhaps you get down to work in the garden at last, or you stew because the rain keeps you from doing so. The Moon-Saturn trine late Sunday finds an older guest at the dinner table. No exact Moon aspects on Monday but the Venus-Mars conjunction is in your solar fourth house; you are up to the task when household chores beckon (such as painting or redecorating) and can see them thru to completion. You might even play host to a house guest.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 8:24 am Tuesday till Thursday night. A Moon-Neptune conjunction saps your energy mid-morning Tuesday, so keep a supply of strong tea or energy bars handy. Your energy on Wednesday under a sextile to Mars is so much better. A Moon-Mercury sextile in the afternoon aids communication so schedule any interviews or sales talks for then.
