Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 23-29, 2012
By Milky Way Maid
Mars enters Aquarius at 7:49 pm Tuesday, Christmas Day. Mars in airy Aquarius is stronger when he joins as part of a group in working towards realizing his ideals on earth. Aquarians field of action tends to be more intellectual than practical, but that may depend on where other personal planets are positioned. Mars represents energies, and so the placement of the planet generally indicates where you need to expend much of your energy. In Aquarius, one’s understanding of human nature, and love of humanity in general, can be applied to many fields. An Aquarian loves watching children develop and grow, so he or she may go into education or simply have as large a family as his budget allows. Aquarians can go into politics, medicine, writing, or anything that requires detailed planning. Famous people born with Mars in Aquarius include: authors Victor Hugo, J D Salinger and Truman Capote, astronaut Virgil Grissom, playwright Edward Albee, actress Julie Christie, whimsical cartoonist Arthur Goldberg, photographer Edward Steichen, composer Richard Wagner, and politicians Charles de Gaulle and Adlai Stevenson.
Christmas Day features the Moon moving into Gemini at 2:13 am, plus the moon joins up with Jupiter – a rather euphoric conjunction, possibly from genuine Christmas cheer (not the liquid kind). The Sun squares Uranus in the evening, a rather upsetting aspect that makes one want to fight City Hall at the drop of a hat – although it could also give rise to original inventiveness or insights. So do not be upset if junior takes apart that expensive electronic toy; he is just learning how to build a better one.
We have a Full Moon at 5:21 am on Dec. 28, at 7 degrees Cancer. Plus, the Sun is nearly conjunct Pluto and the lights square Uranus. Hmmm, expect the unexpected. Many of us may be in a rebellious mood against City Hall or against the banksters. Perhaps the strongest statement any consumer can make during the holiday shopping season is to pay cash and scale down the spending.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. 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 – Mars enters your solar eleventh house on Tuesday; your social group becomes a greater focus of activity this coming month. Your driving could be distracted on Christmas night; please be extra alert. You thoroughly enjoy visiting relatives midweek, catching up on the gossip and playing games. Your mind is on family the latter part of the week as well as on the holiday, so I imagine you are taking kids sledding and stuff like that.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The week starts off with the Moon in comfortable Taurus, until early Tuesday. Sunday morning has the Moon opposite Saturn, possibly indicating someone who stands over you and makes sure that your work gets done or tosses more into your “in” basket. Monday offers time to be creative, especially if you get up extra early to write in your journal. Mars enters your solar tenth house on Tuesday; you realize that one of the perks of being a big shot is having more influence on community projects.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Mars enters your solar ninth house on Tuesday; you are stimulated by new classes or internet-based studies. The Moon is in Gemini from 2:13 am Tuesday until Thursday afternoon. Early risers on Christmas Day may be so fuzzy-headed that they overlook a gift. But by midday they enjoy lots of laughs with friends. Supper hour is euphoric tho you may overdo on the feasting and drinks. Early risers on Wednesday start writing their thank-you notes.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Mars enters your solar eighth house on Tuesday; you rationally try to divide debts into regular monthly payments. The Moon is in Cancer from 3:06 pm Thursday until early next Sunday (Dec. 30). Cancerians are rather buoyant Thursday afternoon, with Neptune acting as a giant air balloon for your mood. You might enjoy a night at the movies. You might call mom Friday night and she is really very lovely to you yet cannot resist laying down a little guilt trip. Saturday can be a really creative day for you if you plan time for it, and set out your paints or other materials.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars enters your solar seventh house on Tuesday; you initiate introductions not only of yourself but to others who might have shared interests with those you already know. You may have more fun with friends than with family on Christmas Day, catching up with all the chatter or playing games with their children.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars enters your solar sixth house on Tuesday; you volunteer your time in humanitarian or charitable drives. Also, it is advisable to watch your heart health and diet.

LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Mars enters your solar fifth house on Tuesday; your drive for creative expression returns, as well as a joy in watching youngsters grow. Cardinal signs could be distracted or upset on Christmas night, so if travelling please use extra care. You are extra busy at work the latter part of the week, and with extra pressure to get some things done before the weekend.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Mars enters your solar fourth house on Tuesday; you put some effort into family relationships this coming month in spite of differences of opinion. You spend the days after Christmas tossing out the old to make room for all the wonderful new stuff you received. You may be put in charge of something Friday, so look alive, kiddo.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars enters your solar third house on Tuesday; you try to use logic and other rational means to convince or teach others. That approach usually goes over like a lead balloon, so try to think of stories to illustrate a point. Your mate may be in a super-good mood at Christmas, and chatting a mile-a-minute, too.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Mars enters your solar second house on Tuesday; you may buy things and then decide you do not want them, so avoid impulse spending. Cardinal signs could be distracted or upset on Christmas night, so if travelling please use extra care. On Wednesday night you enjoy visiting mentors or older relatives.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mars enters your sign on Tuesday; you might be more impulsive yet also more expressive, and sensitive to musical rhythms. Go dancing more often this coming month. Your children are thrilled with their presents Christmas Day, and you enjoy their happy chatter as they play with new toys. On Thursday night you ponder a more rational approach to your diet and exercise habits.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Mars enters your solar twelfth house on Tuesday; you may work on manifesting the personal dream of peace among men and nations. Your favorite place on Christmas Day is at home, with your own family. I see a lot of children in the house. Relatives from out of town may be staying as a guest in your home.
