Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 19-25, 2012

August 11, 2012 at 4:18 pm


By Milky Way Maid


The Sun at 27 degrees Leo sextiles Mars in Libra at 5:45 pm Monday. A good day for tryouts for team sports at the school you or your child will attend this fall. It’s also a good time to initiate projects, get the ball rolling on things like signing up for courses, the PTA, or just having one more cookout party before fall. Mars is muted by being near Saturn, so this is not as energizing a transit as it should be – but because Mars is separating from the conjunction, Mars is picking up steam oh so slowly.


Happy Birthday, Virgo! The Sun enters Virgo at 1:07 pm Wednesday, sextile the Moon in Scorpio and opposite Neptune in Pisces. The Moon is rising in an ingress chart set for the Midwest, and the Part of Fortune at 10 Capricorn is in the third house, accenting education. (The Moon trines Neptune and sextiles Pluto the same day.) Later the same day, Mercury sextiles Jupiter, helping all the new students learn their lessons in school. (Yes, I know that no one except a few college kids will be in class or even at orientation, but the ingress is probably good for the month.) Vesta and Ceres are near Jupiter in the eighth house, helping obtain tuition loans.

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 – You present a very energetic image to others Monday pm. Tuesday night features the Moon conjunct not only Saturn but Mars, too, really cramping your style; but this is only temporary, so go along with whatever your spouse wants to do that night. The Sun enters your solar sixth house of health and work, helping you take a mental checkup of your personal and work routines. You may initiate some programs at work or generate ideas for the suggestion box.


TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – On Sunday, you manage to knock off several items from the to-do list. The Sun enters compatible Virgo, your solar fifth house of fun and creativity, but with Virgo, your expression tends to be along the lines of decorative small patterns or in writing. Wednesday’s Mercury-Jupiter sextile helps you to improve yourself as a salable entity. Friday could be very frustrating as a T-square affects your money houses; mind where you set down your purse.


GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – Monday’s Sun-Mars sextile gives a mild boost to athletic efforts as you regain your form. The Sun enters your solar fourth house of home and family; perhaps you throw an open house, or hunt up healthful recipes. Friday’s frustrating T-square affects you personally, and confusion reigns. Don’t blow things out of proportion Sat. morn – midday is much better, with a pleasant Mercury aspect offering a visit from relatives.


CANCERJune 21-July 22 – Sunday is when you play catch-up with all the errands you need to run. Midday Monday your spouse could nix that outing you’ve been toying with – and you cannot find anyone to cover for you that night. Tuesday night you feel like you are imprisoned in the home. The Sun enters your solar third house of education and relatives; you may organize a block rummage, or teach a class at the local rec center. Life seems pretty good tho on Thursday morn.


LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – Monday’s Sun-Mars trine boosts your initiative and energy; a good time to introduce yourself to those few people who do not know who you are. The Sun enters your solar second house, energizing cash flow especially if you are in a field where you deal directly with people. The Mercury-Jupiter sextile Wednesday night favors attending that club meeting or hanging with friends. Midday Saturday’s Mercury trine favors lots of fun and chatter.


VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo Sunday. The Moon semi-sextiles Saturn, the Sun, and Mars in the pm, favoring plans to retire debts and manage accounts. Your ruler Mercury makes a pleasant sextile to the Moon Monday night, whispering good financial news. The Sun enters your sign on Wednesday, which generally lends a feeling of well-being and ease. You might look forward to going back to school this fall. Friday’s frustrating T-square affects you personally, and confusion reigns.


LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 12:45 am Monday till early Wednesday. A “change agent” type may upset your plans for Monday afternoon. You enjoy catching up with a friend’s news after work. Tuesday night’s mood can be discouraging, but it will pass. The Sun enters your solar twelfth house of privacy; you may retire to a quiet retreat for awhile, just to fill up on peace and quiet. Your ruler Venus is more optimistic about your resources Thursday morn.


SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun enters your solar eleventh house of friends and groups; you may serve a term as a club officer. The Moon is in Scorpio from 3:54 am Wednesday till Friday morn. The Moon-Neptune trine about 7 am Wed. promises an interesting dream if you roll over for some more shut-eye. Early risers might express their creative energies in art or music. Plans change at the last minute towards the end of the work day. Life looks pretty good Thursday morning.


SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 6:50 am Friday till next Sunday morn. You can feel very torn Friday morning between home and work duties; you might take the day off in the mistaken notion that your sacrifice will mean something to family members. Actually Friday night offers unexpected fun times with the kids. You will feel very generous Saturday morn, possibly too generous for your own good. You may get offers or promises to help midday Saturday, tho one never knows if those are empty promises or what.


CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon in compatible Virgo Sunday gets lots done from your to-do list. You play assorted tugs-of-war Monday – although the late afternoon Sun-Mars sextile welcomes some support from your bank. The Sun enters your solar ninth house of the higher mind; you may name a blog after yourself, or in some way represent a college. You enjoy breakfast with a friend Thursday.


AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – Sunday may be spent in a support role to your mate. The early part of the week, legal matters and the prospect of school may be enervating, even depressing, but things will start looking up soon. The Sun enters your solar eighth house of pooled resources; you feel more comfortable tackling matters like insurance, taxes, or wills. Be alert Friday, as the T-square affects your money houses and your purse/wallet could be picked.


PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – Get up off the couch Sunday and help your mate with the heavy stuff. The Sun enters your solar seventh house of partners; someone may walk into your field of vision that you never noticed before. On Thursday morning you promise to take your child shopping for back to school clothes. Friday’s frustrating T-square affects you personally, and confusion reigns. On Saturday morning everyone seems to go over the top about nothing terribly important.

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.
