Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 18-24, 2011
By Milky Way Maid
Venus in Libra squares Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn at 9:08 pm Sunday. Venus square Pluto usually translates as obsessive attachment to a romantic Other, unfortunately all to often this Other is not interested at all. Sometimes it manifests as a controlling relationship (not healthy at all). OK, the highest expression would be a love that is transformative, helping one to become a better person. So there is not much to choose from on a realistic level here.
Mars enters fiery Leo at 9:51 pm Sunday. This is a great position for Mars natally, as fiery Mars is quite at home in fire sign Leo; also these natives often have the opportunity to prove their great leonine courage with this placement. Mars here also favors sports and athletics in general; we may see some good national league games.
Sun in Virgo is inconjunct Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 10:17 pm Wednesday. This can be a debilitating aspect, and people with natal contacts to these planets may be easily exhausted. So pace yourself, or let others help you out.
Venus in Libra is inconjunct retrograde Jupiter at 9 degrees Taurus at 1:23 pm Thursday. Some of us may have to make adjustments to how we express our affection and good natures. We may have to rely less on material expressions (meaning, buying gifts) and more on giving of ourselves.
The Sun enters Libra at 5:05 am Friday, the day of the fall equinox. It could be a wonderful and inspiring day, with the Moon and Mars in Leo trine Uranus in Aries.
Mercury in Virgo is inconjunct Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 11:48 pm Saturday. This can be a classic example of confused communications and garbled messages, so hang on and give each other a break.
