Your Milky Way Horoscope July 24-30, 2011

By Milky Way Maid: Real Astrology for Real People

The Sun in Leo trine Uranus at 4 degrees Aries at 3:43 pm Wednesday. You get some strokes for your individualism, your unique perspective, your sense of humor, your rendition of “Born to Be Wild” and possibly even your inventiveness.

Venus enters the kingly sign of Leo at 10:59 am Thursday. It may be time to get a new style for the royal mane, one that frames your face more flatteringly. Venus in Leo is a hog for compliments and approval, so much so that he may give up on expressing his boundless personal warmth if he doesn’t get approval for it. And that is a sad Leo kitty indeed. Leo is able to uplift others with his personality, his warmth, his affection for others and his love of life.

Mercury enters one of its homes, Virgo, at 1:59 pm Thursday. Mercury in Virgo is a glutton for details and numbers. Mercury here is better at dealing with abstract problems, really, because your weakness is in factoring in the human part of the equation. Excellent at attention to detail and with practical applications of knowledge. Mercury in Virgo this month may quicken your typing speed and calculations, and at recognizing ways to apply what you know to the real world. Guard against being too critical of others; remember, humans are not born perfect although they/we are just trying to get better.

Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune at zero degrees Pisces at 12 midnight Thursday (that is, between Thursday and Friday). I hope no one is staying up late to email or write letters or chat on the phone under this aspect. You will say silly, nonsensical things that others will not understand at all. You may even be the target of an attempted scam, since Neptune is so good at convincing people that lies are truth. We cannot see the truth until the transit is over. So don’t even window-shop online at this hour. Might be swell for reading or writing poetry, playing music, or dancing.

This month’s New Moon is at 7 degrees, 16 minutes of Leo at 2:40 pm Saturday. Incubate goals related to raising children, creativity, and loving life more fully. Venus having just entered Leo on Thursday brings affection. You may get some religious or spiritual insight around this weekend, too (trine to Uranus in fore-sign Aries). You may get bogged down in trying to earn your father’s approval, however. Pallas in Aquarius opposes the NM which I interpret as dealing with a woman who has special training or talents, like a consultant or advisor.

PS – I am listing a few used astrology books for sale on Amazon Books; Part Two was posted July 1! Look for reviews in my column with a link to the listing. Even more titles to come soon. Thanks for your support (and patience). Intuition book has sold.

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 – Monday is very busy. Tuesday offers good advice from an older person, possibly an older business partner. Wednesday is really interesting if you spend time with a Leo or with creative people. Saturday’s New Moon in compatible Leo emphasizes matters related to children, fun, creativity, and the enjoyment of life. You may wish to take classes to improve technique, possibly given by a woman of note.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from Sunday till midday Monday. You might want to compare notes with an older woman on Sunday, probably about work or health matters. Be careful how you say things on Monday morning, lest you put thine foot in thine mouth. Mercury enters Virgo on Thursday, trining your natal planets. Just avoid scammers and liars late Thursday, then go ahead with practical matters.

GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 12:34 pm Monday till Wednesday night. Management might not be as forthcoming as they pretend to be on Monday. Meeting with siblings or friends after work Monday can be very pleasant, possibly with some laughs thrown in. Tuesday is designed for putting the shoulder to the wheel and getting lots done. The Moon-Mars conjunction on Wednesday occurs overnight but you may wake with intense feelings. A Mercury sextile Wednesday night favors a long chat with siblings or just getting errands done.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer from 9:11 pm Wednesday till early Saturday. Late Wednesday’s Neptune trine favors a movie night or possibly daydreaming your future into focus. Thursday morn can be rather upsetting and I hope it isn’t due to some accident; please have that second cuppa java if you are not awake before setting out. At work, you can focus like a laser beam today. Have lunch with a jovial Taurus friend. Thursday night seems to be oriented around working at home, or possibly structural renovation.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 2:16 am Saturday thru the weekend. Early Saturday morn has a lovely Moon-Venus conjunction so remember to gaze into your loved ones’ eyes over breakfast. Mid-morning, you get that ‘born to be wild’ feeling possibly on the back of a motorcycle; there’s also a chance for an intuitive insight. New Moon in Leo in the afternoon offers a more bountiful life if you make the effort towards your goals; you may get some religious or spiritual insight around this weekend, too. You may get bogged down in trying to earn your father’s approval, however.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury enters your sign on Thursday, helping you deal with details and messages, and quickening your hands for crafts or typing. Guard against being overly critical of others; instead, offer to show an easier way to do things. Thursday favors having lunch with a dear friend, who may be in quite a talkative mood. Do read the caution about Mercury opposite Neptune late Thursday. On Saturday you may prefer to stay home, possibly holing up with the kids or grandkids in your own back yard.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – Juno is about to enter your sign, where it seems to be quite at home. You will want to go on jaunts with your mate, help him or her with projects, and generally be a twosome whatever you do. Togetherness is a wonderful thing when you are making memories, just give each other time with others, too. Saturn trines Vesta in Aquarius into August; you may lead groups of children on day trips or in community service. Duty calls on Thursday, tho Wednesday is lazy. Saturday you may visit mysterious places with friends.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – Venus’ entry into Leo on Thursday and Saturday’s New Moon can jump start your career, possibly working for a woman who started her own company. Things may move quite quickly from now into August. Mercury enters Virgo, your solar house of friends, who suddenly become fonts of practical information. Your mate’s idea of a vacation may be a retreat, monastery, or possibly the cabin up north, anywhere you can just escape civilization for awhile.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – Your mate’s energies are slowly recharging but he may not be up to enjoying an active vacation yet. Saturday’s New Moon in Leo emphasizes your solar ninth house of legal matters, publishing, religion, the internet, and long trips. You could take a vacation led by a woman who started her own travel agency. You are going to have to deal with a Taurus person if you are going to get anywhere regarding a government matter. On the bright side, fun with grown children beckons.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – Venus’ entry into your sector of joint finances may not allow short trips this week, not while it is inconjunct Neptune in your third house. (wait till next week at least) Saturday’s New Moon in the same sector promises a change for the better. A child could earn a scholarship or other help with school expenses within the month. You may enjoy a foreign guest in your home. It may benefit you to have a financial planner examine your books and make improvements in money management.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – Juno enters your solar ninth house; a strong woman may help resolve legal or publishing problems. Tuesday’s Moon-Saturn trine in the other air signs offers opportunity if you listen to your intuition; generating ideas is also favored tho keep a note pad to capture random thoughts. Saturday’s New Moon in Leo puts it in your solar seventh house of partnerships; I feel that you may benefit from marriage counseling at this time, even though many Aquarians have successful long-term marriages like the fixed signs that they are. Perhaps your church conducts marriage enrichment weekends?

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – Monday may be challenging when dealing with bosses who give confusing orders. Wednesday evening favors having your own movie night, or just playing with the kids. Make up stories for each other. A friend may be able to babysit on Thursday while you tend to personal business. Do not shop online late Thursday, don’t argue with me. Venus and the New Moon in Leo emphasize your solar sixth house of health and work. You may have to tend to your health more, perhaps visiting a practitioner for advice on specific lifestyle changes.

A gift to my lovely readers —

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.
