Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 6-12, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury at 9 degrees Capricorn is conjunct Pluto at 11:42 am Sunday. Favorable Mercury-Pluto aspects can be utilized in adopting a positive affirmation or mantra for the week to come. Mercury sextiles Saturn at 6:44 pm the same day, adding a layer of self-discipline to the mix of planetary energies. Mercury-Pluto is not very talkative, since you are busy turning over clues in your mind as you solve assorted mysteries. Mercury-Saturn is very serious and sticks to facts or number-crunching, sometimes they are in a role of authority such as teaching or running a seminar.
Mars at 10 degrees Aquarius squares Saturn in Scorpio at 2:33 pm Monday. Mars as a signifier of health may be challenged Monday by restrictions, poor health, being physically blocked from moving forward, etc. Yet the Mission comes first with Mars-Saturn aspects, so sick people may go in to work anyway. The aspect is also very organized; you get at the junk drawer, your purse, old files, and toss what is no longer needed.
Venus enters the sign Capricorn at 11:11 pm Tuesday. Venus in Capricorn is very disciplined and dutiful. She holds onto her looks better in Cappy than in possibly any other sign, since she is more careful to maintain her weight and make herself exercise. Venus in her rulership of values is a bit too socially ambitious in Capricorn for my taste, altho there are some with this placement who are so fearful of social rejection that do not even enter the fray. Venus in Capricorn does have a knack for manipulating physical resources to meet her needs. For example, she can budget well in order to meet a financial goal, she can see how to turn a tablecloth into a shawl or a dress, etc. Famous people with Venus in Capricorn include: Joan of Arc, Robert F. Kennedy, Richard Burton, Prince Andrew, and Caroline Kennedy.
Venus at 1 degree Capricorn sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 12:46 am Thursday. Sensitivity to music or other arts is high, and performers may be able to pull out a better performance than they thought they were capable of. You get going on creative projects. You might be a wee bit spacey, but you are just listening to higher vibrations today.
Venus at 5 degrees Capricorn squares Uranus in Aries at 11:13 pm Saturday. Venus-Uranus squares usually denote meeting a fascinating stranger, even falling in love with that stranger, but the square usually denotes a short-term relationship if any. Someone could suddenly propose, but think very carefully whether you would still like this person five years from now. Venus as ruler of financial issues can also find itself with a cash flow problem, or changing jobs.
