Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 30-Nov. 5, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Venus in Scorpio squares Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 5:19 pm Monday. Venus adversely aspecting Neptune can represent the “in love with love” frame of mind, the kind that thinks he and she are another Romeo and Juliet and no one understands that they just love each other and everything will be alright if they just let them be. Never mind that Romeo is a false beau and runs off with another woman or with her money, and no amount of saying “I told you so” will help matters.
Mercury squares Neptune at 4:37 am Tuesday; this is very much like the above except that one’s reasoning processes are confused. Errors in bookkeeping or other paperwork can crop up, and even if you know that your investment returns are not what they should be, you just can’t think what you should do; if you have a fallback strategy then go with that (ex: putting funds in a money-market account). Refrain from making major decisions or signing contracts.
Venus enters happy-go-lucky Sag at 4:51 am Wednesday. I can just see ever-hopeful Sag waking up Wednesday morning and looking out the window expecting the streets to be paved with gold. Venus in Sag is not the tenderest or most loyal beau. Venus here won’t sacrifice itself for love. This Venus hates to be tied down so do not look for commitment. Celebs with Venus in Sag include Joan Baez, Jane Fonda, Cary Grant, Johnny Carson, and Romy Schneider.
Mercury also enters Sag the same day, at 12:54 pm. Mercury in Sag is in its detriment, since it is opposite its home in Gemini. What does that mean, on a practical level? Mercury in Sag can be brilliant, but generally it cannot concentrate deeply on a subject any length of time. Ideas may be disconnected – people may even think you are spacey or have attention-deficit disorder. Mercury in Sag most often denotes people who say things off the top of their heads without considering their effect. Celebs with Mercury in Sag include singer Frank Sinatra, writer Rudyard Kipling, Marie Antoinette, saint Joan of Arc, actress Patty Duke, and songwriter Jule Styne.
Venus and Mercury square Chiron in Pisces on Wednesday night. I would say that it might not be a favorable day for an appointment; Mercury is not strong here and errors may crop up.
Venus and Mercury square Uranus at zero degrees of Aries at 3:54 am and 9:58 am Thursday, respectively. Venus square Uranus can coincide with a sudden attraction to unusual or foreign people, but it generally does not last very long. With Mercury, the mind may race so fast that sloppy work is the result. Best not to make financial decisions or moves today. You may be jittery, impulsive, even accident-prone. Heads up when driving!
Venus and Mercury are inconjunct Jupiter at one degree of Taurus at 2:52 and 5:13 pm Saturday, respectively. If you made notes to self on Thursday of your thoughts and calculations, now is a good time to go over them with a fine-tooth comb and check for errors. Then try to figure out what you need to do to get back to profitability or sound business practices. Establish stop-loss levels on investments, set up a personal or business accounting system, and so forth.
While Halloween is traditionally a time when the veil between the temporal and spiritual worlds thins, there may be an even better time to contact someone on the other side in November. Looking ahead in the ephemeris, Neptune is stationary direct at 28 degrees of Aquarius at 1:54 pm Wed., Nov. 9. A Neptune station is supposed to favor anything in the spiritual realm; also you might cocoon yourself with a stack of movie DVDs and live in a make-believe world for a few hours.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 23-29, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun enters intense Scorpio at 2:30 pm, Sunday, Oct. 23. Scorpio is supposedly the sexiest sign, but that news may surprise some Scorpio natives. May not be attractive in the conventional sense, but their intensity and magnetism can draw members of the opposite sex to them. Scorpio may be either the noble eagle or the lower scorpion/snake type; you will probably know which one your Scorpio friend is. The eagle type can be very Aquarian in the sense that they are dedicated to the advancement of the whole human race. The lower type can be jealous or vengeful, or try to dominate others. Scorpios make excellent detectives, spies, researchers, doctors and surgeons, prosecutors, and artists. Famous people with the Sun in Scorpio include Picasso, Robert Louis Stevenson, Marie Antoinette, Martin Luther, Bobby Kennedy, Marie Curie, Richard Burton, Billy Graham, Jonas Salk, Prince Charles, and Felix Frankfurter. Happy birthday to all Scorpios this month.
The Sun trines Chiron in Pisces on Monday at 9:37 am. Your new practitioner may be able to diagnose the exact problem and address its causes. Since Chiron will be in the solar fifth house of Pisces (in the Midwestern New Moon chart), there is some chance of injury to the feet, possibly while dancing, and that this injury causes you to visit a new doc, therapist, or natural healer.
The October New Moon occurs on 3 degrees, 3 minutes of Scorpio at 3:56 pm Wednesday. (The Part of Fortune is at 10 degrees Aquarius, right on the ascendant in a Midwestern chart; also, Vesta is at 11 degrees Aquarius. It says, whatever you need is right there where you are.) The New Moon features: Mars in Leo sextiles Saturn at 21 degrees of Libra at 5:37 am Wed. This aspect favors getting really, really organized, accomplishing one’s mission, and may involve the military. Good for detailed work in metal or stone, or any sustained effort. Venus in Scorpio squares Mars at 22 degrees of Leo at 6:23 pm Wednesday. We may have arguments with loved ones, yet with Venus softening our hearts, we retain a sense of fair play and courtesy – we play by the rules. Relationships begun now are likely to fade after the initial physical attraction fades.
Mercury in the New Moon’s ninth house of national news is conjunct Venus, and square Mars; the military will be in the news, possibly inre appropriations voted on by Congress. Sun-Moon are in the Scorpion’s eighth house but because they are in early degrees, they want to be in the ninth house with the rest of the sign – joining Mercury and Venus. National news is going to be very big that day so stay tuned to your favorite news source.
Mercury in Scorpio squares Mars at 23 degrees of Leo at 11:08 am Friday. Mercury square Mars tends to cause argument, although arguing can be done constructively in the form of debate or other rational discussion. With fixed signs here, it is not likely that anyone’s mind is going to be changed quickly, so maybe you should just agree to differ and move on to other topics. You may be irritable and cranky, impatient enough to jump a green light and cause an accident, so use extra care. This aspect can also make for exciting athletic contests, ones that feature fast hand- or foot-work, passing the ball, or where deception may be useful.
Jupiter in Taurus trines Pluto at 5 degrees of Capricorn at 12:29 pm Friday. Big Business (Pluto in Capricorn) has a good week.
The Sun in Scorpio opposes Jupiter at 5 degrees Taurus and sextiles Pluto at 9:42 pm and 11:11 pm Friday, respectively.
NOTE: In several entries below I refer to events in possibly two months’ time; this involves fixed signs so I know it probably will not happen in days or weeks – but there is a chance that it may take 2-4 months, or even two years to play out. I hope not!

Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 16-22, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Pluto at 5 degrees Capricorn at 12:58 pm Sunday. Ideal for settling in with a good mystery novel, writing one of your own, or tackling some mystery in your own life. Dig thru the business receipts to make sure they add up right, audit the books, check up on those in your employ.
Mercury in Scorpio opposes Jupiter at 6 (almost 7) degrees Taurus at 2:55 pm Monday. Jupiter is the higher octave of Mercury in terms of knowledge or education; you may be drawn to enroll in a college course, join a seminar, or even teach.
The Sun in Libra trines Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 7:57 pm Friday. Feel like slipping and hiding for a while? Neptune can indicate holidays and vacations, times when you leave behind all your cares and chores and just float in a pool, etc. Or, with autumn nipping the air, taking a drive up to the country to see the fall colors. Also, a great time to come up with your Halloween costume; great disguises beckon.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 9-15, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Venus enters passionate Scorpio at 1:50 am Sunday. Venus in Libra is relationship-oriented, but in Scorpio she demands total commitment. Venus in Scorpio can have quite a talent for finding hidden talents in others and making them aware of these latent abilities. This brings out the hidden worth that was going unknown and un-revealed. Famous people with Venus in Scorpio include Mary Martin, Mohandas “Mahatma” Gandhi, Andy Williams, Sophia Loren and Marie Antoinette.
Venus in Scorpio is inconjunct Uranus at 2 degrees of Aries at 4:15 pm Monday. The inconjunct is a very difficult aspect to handle. With Venus placed in a relationship house, you may lean towards terminating a relationship, or the other party may be forced to be away for a time (such as with a military deployment). With Venus in a money house, your income may come only in fits and spurts – so plan accordingly.
Mercury in Libra trines retrograde Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius at 6:10 am Wednesday. Aspects between Mercury and Neptune can lead to misunderstandings and garbled messages, and that can happen even with the trine. Your mind or mouth gets ahead of itself, to the point where you may even stutter. However, the trine also offers the possibility of gaining a higher level of communication, possibly even a psychic, unspoken level of communication. You may discuss dreams, ideals, and a wish for the elusive ascending spiral of human progress.
Venus in Scorpio sextiles Pluto at 5 degrees of Capricorn at 3:43 am Thursday. Venus in Scorpio plus heavy-duty Pluto are a couple of very serious, committed, passionate planets. Nothing halfway here, so a discussion of your future as a couple might be in the cards.
Mercury enters Scorpio at 10:19 pm Thursday. Mercury in very serious, spiritual Scorpio wants to get to the crux of everything. Stop beating around the bush and lay things out for him straight-up; he can take it.
The Sun is conjunct Saturn at 20 degrees of Libra at 5:13 pm Thursday. Stop quaking in your boots – you’re not gonna die. I can tell you at least one thing good about this conjunction. I started a job with this aspect in effect, several years ago; it was a very physically demanding job and I quickly lost about 30 pounds that I really did not want anyway. So it is GOOD for WEIGHT LOSS!!! Plan to deliberately begin a diet and or exercise routine now, and stick it out as long as you can. People who have great difficulty losing weight can see the pounds come off if they can just follow a sensible plan that they can live with, for the long term.
I suggest starting 2 or 3 days before the exact conjunction, or the following Friday morning. Why? Because the exact conjunction may feel too oppressive to continue for very long, while if you start earlier you will benefit from progressions. The progressed chart for the beginning of the diet will not show an exact conjunction (a probable ending date for the diet) for 2 or 3 YEARS, and that gives you a lot of time to break bad habits and institute brand new, good habits in their place.
In career matters, you may be put in charge of something, and becoming a Quality Control techie also fits this aspect. You might just be the QC in charge of only your own muddled-up life, but then again, you wouldn’t hand that job to a stranger, now would you?
Venus in Scorpio opposes Jupiter at 7 degrees of Taurus at 7:53 pm Friday. This is a bit of a toughie to interpret because Venus and Jupiter are natural pals, both being fond of indulgence and comfort. So the opposition may mean hurting yourself via gluttony or hedonism.

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.
