Your Milky Way Horoscope June 24-30, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Vesta in Taurus opposes Juno in Scorpio at the beginning of the week. This is a new one me, folks, so we will all just have to take notes on this one. Aspect is at 22 degrees of the fixed signs, so if you have natal planets there, they will probably be affected by this. This is close to my nodal axis in relationship houses, so something ought to happen.
Saturn goes direct at 4:00 am Monday morning, at 22 degrees 46′ of Libra. The few days around the station seem like nothing is happening, but the retrograde period was a chance to FINISH things or RESTRUCTURE payments, organizations, procedures, etc. Now that you have that spanking new filing system in place, keep it up and keep placing documents in their files as you go.
Jupiter at 3 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 3:56 am Monday. This aspect typically sets off a great religious or spiritual renewal at the societal or historical level. At the same time we need to beware of being scammed into donating our car to a charity that turns out to not be a charity, for example. In the words of one of the apocryphal gospel texts, give your money to the poor, but let the money sweat in your hand a little while you find out if this is a worthy place to donate it.
Mercury enters Leo at 10:24 pm Monday. Mercury in Leo is two-sided. On the one hand, he can come off sounding so dictatorial, as if everything HE says is SO much more important than what anyone else says. However, when they harness their flair for dramatic presentation, they can communicate in vividly and effectively. Yes, this is useful in the theatre, but can also be used in the classroom or boardroom (like when making otherwise boring presentations). They are capable of giving cold data a human touch. Famous people with Mercury in Leo include: Ernest Hemingway, Paul Tillich, Casey Stengel, Jimmy Dean, Eddie Fisher – now hold onto your seats for this trio: Napoleon, Fidel Castro, and Benito Mussolini.
Venus makes a Direct Station at 11:07 am Wednesday, at 7 degrees 30′ of Gemini. This is so that she can stand in the spotlight on the stage and let your applause wash over her like a big wave on the sand. So make some noise, throw some flowers, let her know you love her a lot. During the Venus retrograde, we may have had a change of heart about someone or something; now that Venus is moving forward, we need to hold on to this ability to give someone the benefit of the doubt, let them go if need be, but with every wish for their happiness. We need to guard against becoming hard-hearted again. On a practical note, if you have this station on a natal planet or in your second house of finances, you might see a wobble in the value of your bank account or investments or even a break in your income. Barbara Koval noted that when a Venus station occurred on sensitive degrees, prices for the dollar and commodities ruled by Venus (sugar, cattle, copper, art, money and banking) could see historic highs or lows.
The Sun opposes Pluto (11:02 am) and squares Uranus (4:10 pm) on Friday. This is a strong cardinal T-square, and makes for a day when you do not want to rock any boats, not a work where you could be fired in a second, not at home where you could be sleeping on the couch or have to spend a night at a motel. With Uranus there the chance of not only separations and estrangements, but also accidents or more likely, mechanical and electrical/electronic failures. So have your computer files backed up this week!

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 in Libra from Tues.-Thurs. puts the emphasis on working with partners or with the public. Thursday night is especially favorable for brainstorming or for dealing with the printers. Midday Thursday you squeeze in a mini-workout or walk at lunch hour. Friday from midday to evening is very stressful for the cardinal signs; Saturn and Pluto say NO very loud and clear. Just throw in the towel and make other plans.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – That Juno-Vesta opposition in your relationship houses at the beginning of the week ought to set off some sparklers. Go somewhere, anywhere, and say hi to people. Sunday afternoon favors a short trip. Monday’s Jupiter aspect could see progress in working for a non-profit or a fraternal organization. Thursday night favors a music concert or art class. If you get up early Friday you’ll have time to write. Friday pm does not favor embarking on any trips, long or short.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – It’s too easy for you to blow things out of proportion midday Sunday; it’s not like you, get a grip, girl. That Jupiter-Neptune square in mutable signs Monday could affect you personally; see notes above. On Tuesday morn you can use that Mars energy to zip thru chores (even before work) – you might even throw an impromptu party that night. Thursday afternoon you could ask for a favor or even a small loan off a friend. But I don’t see you getting that real bank loan on Friday.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Sunday afternoon favors shopping and errands. On Monday be careful of places on the internet that you are not already familiar with; danger of scammers. Early risers on Thursday gets lots of housework done – even before going to work. You may be able to ask a favor or give a favor Thursday afternoon. Friday from midday to evening is very stressful for the cardinal signs; Saturn and Pluto say NO very loud and clear. Saturday afternoon is very nice for playing games or watching the local softball team.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo for a few hours on Sunday. Sunday night favors getting down to the nitty-gritty about joint finances with your mate. The Jupiter-Neptune square Monday affects your house of joint finances and friends/clubs. There might be something you do not understand clearly about your insurance plan or wills. Mercury moves into your sign this week; you can use your flair for drama to make memorable presentations at work.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 7:42 am Sunday till midday Tuesday. Sunday afternoon favors going to a movie matinee; catch up on those films you wanted to see. That Jupiter-Neptune square in mutable signs Monday could affect you personally; see notes above. Tuesday morn is quite energetic and you can knock off a few errands before work. Friday can be stressful re your money houses, with Saturn and Pluto involved in a nasty T-square; make sure you have cash on hand in case the ATMs go on the fritz.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 1:25 pm Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. You enjoy catching up with a friend Tuesday afternoon. Tuesday night you enjoy planning a trip. Early risers get a lot of chores done before work Thursday. You might learn of some benefit offered by the headquarters of the company you work for on Thursday afternoon. Friday from midday to evening is very stressful for the cardinal signs; Saturn and Pluto say NO very loud and clear.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 4:32 pm Thursday till Saturday afternoon. Thursday night begins with an inspiring trine to Neptune, possibly in the form of an interesting film. If you get up about 6 am Friday, you may meet a new man on your jog. The morning looks good for talking your way out of a ticket, however a do not repeat do NOT continue on your way only to run into an accident. Saturday afternoon favors sports n games with friends.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Tuesday night favors a party with friends, just duck out before 11:30 when perhaps noise complaints bring the cops to the door. Another friend may provoke a laugh or an insight early Wednesday. Friday can be stressful re your money houses, with Saturn and Pluto involved in a nasty T-square; make sure you have cash on hand in case the ATMs go on the fritz. The Moon is in Sag from 6:04 pm Saturday thru the weekend. The only aspect is a square to Neptune that night, so I suggest letting someone else drive – unless you like driving in circles.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday afternoon favors a picnic or cookout, just make sure you have your Mapquest directions in hand when setting out. That night finds you back at home enjoying playing detective with the TV show or mystery novel. You are skeptical by nature but could get snookered by some guru-type on TV Monday. You like to come in early Thursday and get a lot done. That also means you don’t have to feel guilty about enjoying a movie that night. Friday from midday to evening is very stressful for the cardinal signs; Saturn and Pluto say NO very loud and clear.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Midday Sunday does not favor balancing the checkbook unless you have someone to look over your work. Monday’s square might have you pondering how to improve the lot of children. The Moon is in a compatible air sign Tues-Thurs. Tuesday night especially favors holding a brainstorm with like-minded people to solve whatever kind of problems you are having. Thursday’s Mars wants to get you out for a walk at lunchtime. I don’t think you’ll be able to schedule anything for Saturday night with scatterbrained friends; if anything, just hold an open house and see who shows up.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – You really don’t start to enjoy Sunday till the afternoon; then you are ready to either party – or take the kids to the zoo. Early Monday sees the chance of a very interesting dream, possibly religiously-themed or spiritually significant. That Jupiter-Neptune square in mutable signs Monday could affect you personally; see notes above. Tuesday night favors creative outlets, especially music and painting. Early risers on Thursday can get a lot done, fun stuff like balancing the checkbook. Thursday’s lunch break favors journaling or writing down that great idea for a novel. But don’t expect to find an agent for it on Friday.
