Your Milky Way Horoscope May 29-June 4, 2011

 By Milky Way Maid

The Sun in Gemini trines Saturn at 10 degrees Libra at 5:15 am Wednesday, just about 12 hours before the Solar Eclipse. The aspect will be slowly separating by the time of the solar eclipse later the same day; much better for getting a solid start on your ambitions whatever they may be. Diligence at checking things off your to-do list comes easier with Saturn’s help. And the boss may be watching and taking note, so follow standard procedure at all times. Saturn also represents elders; this is a fine opportunity to consult with a mentor or senior member of the firm.

The Solar Eclipse occurs at 11 degrees, 2 minutes of Gemini, at 4:08 pm Wednesday. It features a prominent Sun-Saturn trine, which is fortunately separating so that we are not crushed underfoot by old man Saturn. (See above for notes) Gemini eclipses often affect performers and other public persons in the U.S., due to our Sag ascendant. Look for some unusual headlines about our public figures.

Mercury enters Gemini at 4:02 pm on Thursday. Gemini is one of its homes; it has two, befitting the dual planet himself. Mercury in Gemini tends to make one the trivia king, but is that really the best use of your talents? If you can focus on just one topic for a little bit, you can master it and teach others the tricks of the trade. Mercury promptly squares Neptune in Pisces. Neptune tends to throw pink dust in our eyes, making see only what we want to see instead of reality. Now, you could try blending these planetary energies by constructive use of some affirmations. Affirmations are words or ideas (Mercury) that we meditate on (Neptune) in order to override whatever negative programming we may have suffered earlier in our lives.

Mercury in Gemini sextiles Uranus at 4 degrees Aries at 3:57 pm Saturday. This could be a serendipitous day. New puzzles to tease your brain, breaking out of routines, a funny conversation with a unique person, or a casual verbal exchange that spawns exciting ideas – these are all symbolized by this aspect. You might pick up some article on a Uranian topic, such as astrology, technology, computers, electronics, psychology, or parapsychology.

Jupiter changes signs again, entering the sign of Taurus the Bull at 9:56 am Saturday. Bulls can enjoy Jupiter’s effects into next year, because it will not be leaving their sign until almost mid-June 2012. Taurus tends to put on weight every year even without a transiting Jupiter, so this may not be a very welcome transit. BUT if you use this Jovian energy to broaden your views, expand your influence on others, try new things, then you could dodge the weight-gain bullet. Jupiter in Taurus represents actualizing the potential of your resources; that may mean taking odds and ends and creating something of beauty out of them. Ultimately the best investment you can make is in your own self, so this year may see you taking classes, starting a business, or offering your unique skills and talents to a wider audience. Taurus often works very hard for less pay than they deserve, but Jove may finally smile on your sweet self. Good luck!

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.

ARIESMarch 20-April 19 – You feel like you can do anything when a Moon-Jupiter conjunction starts the day Sunday. You may be right, but still use some common sense. No jumping off the garage roof, for example. The Moon is in Aries for only a few hours early Sunday, but that whopper of a conjunction can carry you through the day and maybe even the week. Jupiter enters your solar second house on Saturday, zowie, that could bring a nice financial cushion over the next year, or at least protect your assets from losses. Also on Saturday you may latch onto some cool brain exercises or games on the internet, so search away.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 9:02 am Sunday till Tuesday night. The Moon sextiles Neptune in the late morning on Sunday. The world will look so darn beautiful, better take your camera along on a walk to capture it. The Moon conjoins Mars (1:43 pm) and then Venus (9:23 pm) on Monday; you will need to move around at midday, so at least take a walk during lunch break; Venus wants to socialize so having people over for dinner or dessert is favored Monday night. Catch up with gossip or email midday Tuesday with Mercury conjoining the Moon in Taurus. Jupiter enters your sign on Saturday; see notes above.

GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 7:56 pm Tuesday till Friday morn. The Moon squares Neptune Tuesday night, favoring a night at the movies. The Sun trines Saturn early Wednesday; try to consult with a mentor, senior or elder. A partial Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees, 2 minutes of Gemini occurs at 5:03 pm Wednesday. The trine to Saturn in Libra could bring you honors and recognition this year, possibly for a creative project such as a book, painting, symphony, dance, etc.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 – The Moon in compatible Taurus joins Mars and Venus in your solar 11th house Monday; friends and clubs may offer high-energy activities and games. The Moon is in Cancer from 4:36 am Fri. till midday next Sunday. A Moon-Neptune trine early Fri. encourages you to focus on an ideal before starting the day. A square to Uranus at midday can bring insight. The Moon sextiles Mars about midday Sat., prompting you to get up and move around more. You might even engage in sports or games. Also Sat., Jupiter enters your solar 11th house, promising benefits thru friends and organizations; so don’t let club membership lapse.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – Monday’s Moon-Mars-Venus conjunction in your solar tenth house offers competition and opportunities to make sales presentations. Mercury enters your solar eleventh house Thursday, increasing contacts with friends and colleagues. The sextile to Uranus on Sat. may offer some surprising info or a new way of looking at things. Jupiter enters your solar tenth house on Sat., dear Leo, so I hope you are ready for your turn in the spotlight.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury enters Gemini on Thursday, squaring your natal Sun by sign. Mercury in your solar tenth house increases the tempo of the work day and increases the volume of calls and emails. You may find yourself repeating basic info many times, so you might try to build that info into a FAQ question on the company website or into the voicemail system. Jupiter enters your solar ninth house on Saturday, possibly bringing a favorable legal judgment, a publishing success, a religious experience, a long trip, or a step into national politics.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – Mercury enters compatible Gemini on Thursday; your solar ninth house is activated with more messages flying around to lawyers, publishers, colleges, or clergy. This may be related to the Wednesday’s Solar Eclipse in Gemini, putting the focus on the sectors I’ve listed. The Moon enters Cancer on Friday morn, squaring Uranus at midday and demanding you take action. On Saturday Mercury sextiles Uranus for some surprising news or a new approach to one of your problems.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – A Moon-Neptune aspect Sunday favors a picnic lunch by the water; you might like it so much you make it a regular date. I’m a bit leery of giving anyone too much control over joint funds/investments with the Sun there in your eighth house, trined by Saturn. You may get great advice but I would not put all one’s funds into any one thing. Wednesday’s trine to the Sun Jupiter enters your solar seventh house on Saturday, bringing a significant other who fills that corner of your life to the brim. If you have a public career, this upcoming year may see you in great demand.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Sun-Saturn trine on Wednesday may open up a leadership position with one of your clubs; the Solar Eclipse the same day also energizes this aspect. Mercury enters your solar seventh house, Gemini, on Thursday. Communication with your partner is accented, and the sextile to Uranus Saturday helps you laugh together. Jupiter enters your solar sixth house on Saturday, bringing a great new doctor, an upturn in your health, and/or opportunities to turn your hobby into a profitable sideline.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – Monday’s Moon-Mars-Venus conjunction in your solar fifth house energizes the creativity, romance and fun department. Jupiter joins the fray on Saturday, bringing many options in the romance department. Investments may also be hugely profitable. Mercury enters your solar sixth house of health and work on Thursday, increasing calls and messages from your health practitioners; perhaps you need to schedule a checkup?

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – Wednesday’s Solar Eclipse in compatible Gemini accents your solar fifth house of creativity and romance; Gemini there may indicate mere flirtations and that’s OK, but the trine to Saturn may favor getting serious and settling down. Jupiter enters your solar fourth house on Saturday, offering a chance to expand your home or family. An international visitor may stay over, or you may (profitably) invest in a hotel/motel or restaurant venture.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – The Gemini Solar Eclipse on Wednesday accents your solar fourth house of home and family. The trine to Saturn may indicate it would benefit you to consult with an older relative, perhaps your spouse’s parents or grandparents. Mercury also enters your fourth house, increasing the volume of messages in your in-box. Jupiter enters your solar third house on Saturday, offering a mind-expanding year either in a classroom or on the internet.

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
