Your Milky Way Horoscope July 1-7, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Mars was in the news last week, it seems that scientists are pretty sure that there is water locked up under the surface. Article appeared in Smithsonian magazine: http://blogs.smithsonianmag.com/science/2012/06/scientists-discover-that-mars-is-full-of-water/ Note that article appeared the week that Mars reached the degree in Virgo when it went retrograde in April.
Mars enters Libra at 8:32 am Tuesday. Hmmm, this kind of gives me pause because of what another astrologer told me years ago: “Libra is the sign of peace but it is also the sign of war.” So every time the planet of war enters the sign of war, I feel I need to take notice. It seems to me that Libra, insistent as she is on equality, will unsheath her sword when she feels she has been stepped on for too long. This Mars transit is too prone to blaming Others for any lack of harmony; however, a healthy expression of the transit is being able to honestly share what it is you want – the key word here is ‘honestly’ – then the other party can counter with a proposed swap of some kind. A Libra Mars’ sense of justice is easily outraged; fairness is extremely important now. The Libra Mars has a balanced sense of justice and finds means that are appropriate to the ends. It is also good for self-expression in the arts or in literary works. Famous people with Mars in Libra include: Abraham Lincoln, John Lennon, John Lindsey, Martin Luther, George Bernard Shaw, and Winston Churchill.
Mercury at 8 degrees Leo sextiles Venus in Gemini at 9:26 am Wednesday. Very nice for holding hands and sweet nothings. Also nice for exchanging recipes for sweet treats. May or may not be creative or artistic – depends on your talents and if it contacts natal planets, but going to a concert sure sounds nice. Don’t they have a free concert program in the parks in your area?? Try it out!
Mercury also trines Uranus in Aries at 1:53 pm Wednesday; possibly this may be a very busy day on the internet with bloggers galore posting their news, and possibly trying to get support for a collective action. Venus follows with the same aspect to Uranus at 10:36 pm, which I would think would produce very beautiful fireworks displays. Venus is also TOTALLY charmed by a stranger, possibly a foreigner; Venus could also find something of value just lying around, or receive a surprise small gift.

CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Chiron trines your Sun on Sunday, while Pallas squares; you might have to play nurse for yourself or a family member, hopefully nothing too serious. Also you might appointed Health Officer (informally of course) for the family picnic, keeping the foods at safe temperatures, etc. Mars enters your solar fourth house, where you begin to assert your own needs in a healthy way. For Independence Day, I think you will be happy as a clam just holing up at home or at a cabin hideaway.

You may engage in formal debates, or seem overly combative verbally. Independence Day is fine for having friends over, or attending events together. Thursday morning favors going off to a quiet family getaway. Mid or late morning may include a happy surprise. On Friday I see you checking off errands from your to-do list.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars enters your solar second house, where debt may complicate your drive to accumulate possessions; however, with counseling and discipline, you can reduce that debt over time and improve your finances.

The Moon is in compatible Aquarius Wednesday night thru Friday. Thursday looks great for loading up the Winnebago, avoiding the crowds in the parks and on the road on the holiday. Friday you might have that heart-to-heart chat with one of the kids.

Independence Day may be spent embarking on a long trip with your mate.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 6:51 pm Monday till Wednesday night. You want to rush to get something done Monday before the holiday, but alas it will probably have to be done over. I recommend using positive affirmations morning and night on Wednesday; you are under a lot of pressure, I think, and customers change their minds last minute. Be strong!
