Your Milky Way Horoscope June 19-25, 2011
By Milky Way Maid
Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there! The Moon in Aquarius trines Venus in Gemini about 6 am, which seems to spell lots of love and affection coming your way (and since they’re in air signs, nothing too mushy). The kids might make you breakfast, which no doubt will not include burnt toast.
Mercury in Cancer trines Chiron at 5 degrees Pisces early Sunday, and opposes Pluto late the same day. If visiting your practitioner Sunday or Monday, make sure to ask lots of questions to make sure you understand the diagnosis, the protocol, or the medication instructions. Visit a health food store or pick up a book on a health topic like aromatherapy, water therapies, light therapy or anything else that appeals to you. Pluto may help you figure out what is really going on in your body, with the help of his penetrating insights.
Mars enters Gemini at 10:50 pm Monday. Mars here is more verbal, so you may express your anger through debate or persuasion rather than fisticuffs (which is really better anyway). Gemini natives may be even more high-strung than usual while Mars is in their sign. You could dig yourself a mental rut and dither between courses of action; it may help to use someone you trust as a sounding board.
Check your natal chart to see if Mars in Gemini will make aspects to your natal planets. For example: Positive Sun-Mars aspects will improve your energy, coordination, and athletic ability. Negative or stressful Sun-Mars aspects can mean quarrels or run-ins with police.
The Sun enters Cancer at 1:16 pm Tuesday. Cancerians are very sensitive emotionally, which is perfectly OK. When Cancer is able to validate others’ emotions as well as his/her own, then you have a mature, emotionally healthy Cancerian. Cancer has a gift for making others feel that someone cares, whether they do this professionally or for free with their own circle of family and close friends. Cancerians can be as tireless and determined as the waves that tear away at an oceanside cliff. They have an excellent memory and often like to relate family anecdotes or reminisce. Family comes first, and may be accompanied by an interest in genealogy, history or antiques. Their fave vacation is likely to be the frequent family outings to a beach or lake.
Mercury in Cancer squares Saturn in Libra at 2:42 pm Tuesday, and soon the Moon squares Venus in Gemini at 10:51 pm the same night. Mercury square Saturn can bring a healthy skepticism, although there is some chance for a problem with the sense organs (hearing, vision, etc). Adverse aspects between the Moon and Venus cause people to be stingy, unsympathetic and cold, so don’t bother asking favors of anyone. This is a poor night to do a sales presentation, for sure.
The Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces at 10:07 am Wednesday. This is an idealistic and spiritual aspect. Good for volunteering, donating, or trying to start a fund drive for your fave charitable cause. BUT if you have volunteered to collect admission fees for some local event, make sure to count change accurately and to check the cash to see if it looks genuine.
The Sun in Cancer sextiles Jupiter at 3 degrees Taurus at 7:54 pm Saturday. Plus the Moon conjoins Jupiter in Taurus overnight (about 1 am Sunday) so this is very auspicious for anything where you need some luck. Jupiter is such a buoyant and confident fellow that good aspects can just mean you feel so darn lucky for what you already have, and I think that is the kind of attitude that frequently draws even more luck to it. So take out a pen and write down at least three things that you feel very fortunate to have.

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 4:24 am Thursday till Saturday afternoon. The Moon sextiles Mars early, so your energy should be high. A Moon-Uranus conjunction midday lends a magnetic charisma, useful if you have to interview or persuade. It is also great for improvising musical rhythms. Friday may be trying, since you will be pulled in several directions by a T-square. The evening is very pleasant, though, under a Moon-Venus sextile; it favors dates or family gatherings with loved ones.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The Moon squares Mars in Taurus Monday afternoon; you may be tempted to do too much physically so unless you are fit, ask for assistance. Monday night favors times with family under Venus’ rays. The Sun enters your solar third house of relatives, communications and transit on Tuesday; you might get your blog or column picked up. The Moon is in Taurus from 4:53 pm Saturday through the weekend. See notes above about that sextile to Jupiter on Saturday.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Venus in Gemini trines the Moon in Aquarius on Sunday; be big and do someone you love a favor. Sun in Gemini trines the Moon on Monday afternoon; you can partner up with someone to get more done that day. A Moon-Neptune conjunction that night squares your sun sign; be careful someone doesn’t try to scam you, but may be nice for catching a flick. Hey, Mars enters your sign on Monday, too; this can shorten your temper and fray your nerves so try to pamper yourself a bit more this month.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Mercury in Cancer opposes Pluto on Sunday afternoon; this could mean frustrations in communications on one level. However, you could become very determined to get some research done, for example. The Sun enters your sign on Tuesday; happy birthday for those with birthdays this week! Mercury in Cancer receives a trine from the Moon on Tuesday; reach out and touch somebody with a call or email. Sun-Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces Wednesday morn; you can charm someone into a favor. Sun-Cancer sextiles Jupiter Saturday night; try to figure out where luck may strike you (possibly with friends or at a club dinner).
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars enters your solar eleventh house of friends on Monday night. You might become more competitive or even argumentative with them; best to work off some of that energy with friendly games of tennis or other summer sports. With Jupiter in your solar tenth house of career now, you may be getting some attractive job offers or advancements. The Moon-Jupiter conjunction on Saturday could trigger something very nice, something that could grow into a very good position for you.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars enters Gemini, your solar tenth house of career, on Monday night. Mars here can spur your ambitions; I am sure that you can analyze what steps you need to take to reach whatever goal you decide on. Mars in the tenth also can increase friction, so avoid unnecessary conflicts over nothing. The Sun enters Cancer, your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs, on Tuesday; you might take a higher profile position with that club you belong to.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Saturn helps you stay disciplined and on schedule on Sunday morn. A quiet hour might be best on Tuesday afternoon in order to get your work done; hold all calls. You might be feeling sorry for yourself on Thursday night, under an adverse Moon-Saturn aspect, but that mood will pass. Communication problems can make a mess at work midday Friday, so make sure your cellphone is charged and that you have backup servers for the computers.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Monday night might be an odd night for a date, but the Moon-Uranus conjunction in your solar fifth house lends a magnetic attraction. Mars enters your solar eighth house on Tuesday; disputes may be argued inre insurance or other pooled resources. The sun enters compatible water sign Cancer on Tuesday; this is in your solar ninth house so you might have to make personal appeals in court. About 10 am on Wednesday, Sun in Cancer trines Neptune in Pisces; combine this with your natal planets and you might have a nice water Grand Trine working for you. Neptune is idealistic and artistic; pick up your camera, or volunteer for a few hours at a local charity.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars enters your opposite sign on Monday night; partners and mates can be both more energetic and more argumentative. Let’s hope that whoever is affected by this transit can burn off excess energy in exercise. Wednesday is a challenge day with Mars opposing your natal planets, and square Neptune; this can be almost delusional or it can expose you to a con artist. Just keep your wishful thinking under control and then no one can manipulate you into a scam. The Moon in Aries on Thursday and Friday is also challenging, just because your good buddy Aries is busy dealing with ‘stuff’ and cannot help you.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Sun enters your opposite sign, Cancer, on Tuesday; you or your spouse may move into the spotlight or work with the public for a while. Thursday and Friday may be rather stressful with squares to planets in Aries and tying in to Saturn; you may lock horns and that may be inevitable for the short term but try to work something out. A nice Sun-Jupiter sextile ties into your natal planets on Saturday night; do some inner or outer expansion, possibly with your spouse along.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The week begins with Moon in Aquarius, till Monday afternoon. The Moon-Venus trine promises lots of family affection and appreciation for all you dads on Father’s Day. A Sun-Moon trine on Monday afternoon favors working with a partner, and the Mars aspect probably says you can get a lot done. Mars enters compatible Gemini late Monday; your energy level should improve so make some plans to get out more.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 4:45 pm Monday till Thursday morn. A Moon-Neptune conjunction at suppertime Monday shows an ability to charm or be charmed, so this would favor having interesting people over for dinner. It also favors attending an early movie. The Sun enters compatible Cancer at midday Tuesday; your emotions find a constructive outlet; you may find agreeable companions on vacations, etc. However, avoid shopping Tuesday night, since money could burn a hole in your pocket.
