Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 13-19, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Mars enters Virgo at 7:05 am Tuesday. Mars in Virgo is so bent on being proven himself right that he loses the point of it all. Truth is an either-or game to them, where winning means proving not only that he is right, but all others are wrong. Too quick to criticize and judge, particularly on inconsequential details. But that is a description of immature Virgo energy. A more mature Virgo is delighted to show others how to do something so that they can straighten out their lives and develop their talents. They can motivate others to master skills at bookkeeping, crafts such as weaving or sewing, time management, homemaking, nutrition, or management of chronic illnesses.
Mars in Virgo can be very detached as it goes about solving a problem. You are not distracted by emotional considerations (even though it might help you to be more effective at helping others if you could connect on the emotional level). Famous people with Mars in Virgo include: comic Bob Hope, Napoleon Bonaparte, Joan of Arc, baby-doc Benjamin Spock, architect Eero Saarinen, revolutionary Fidel Castro, golfer Ben Hogan, actresses Geraldine Chaplin and Romy Schneider, Alexander the Great, and Chiang Kai-Shek.
Venus at 10 degrees Sag trines Uranus in Aries at 6:04 pm Wednesday. Ah, a charming foreigner, or someone with an accent anyway, looks awfully interesting to you. You may run into rather strange people who alter your idea of what normal is, or challenge you to stretch personal boundaries and definitions. Any friendships or romances struck up under this aspect tend to be short-lived, altho it seems to me that the friendships last a lot longer than the romances.
Mars at 2 degrees Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces at 9:54 pm Saturday. If this aspect contacts any natal planets at 2 degrees or so, then be most careful of your health and conserve your energies. Not that this is life-endangering or anything, but it sure saps your energy. Possible manifestations include fevers or infections (Mars), or enervating illnesses (Neptune) such as flu, chronic fatigue syndrome, malaria, and anything that is hard to diagnose. This is not the time to embark on a long trip or some major project requiring long hours of hard work.
