Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 15-21, 2013
By Milky Way Maid
Uranus makes a Direct Station at 12:39 pm Tuesday at 8 degrees, 35′ of Aries. A period of rebellion and non-conformity and unexpected events comes to a close – Uranus went retrograde on July 17 at 12 degrees Aries, so try to think back to events since that time which shook up your life a bit. Dane Rudhyar said that Uranus “is the power of Transfiguration – it releases Light through the personality.” On some level you may have felt like you were struck by lightning! Things were probably a bit chaotic, although a Grand Trine in water signs of Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune may have eased things a bit, or may have heightened your emotional reactions to events. I know that I have experienced a rollercoaster of emotions since about that time, and look forward to things settling down. Complacency tries to lull us to fall back into our old ruts, but the work is to apply your new insights into breaking through your old limitations. There is no going back!!
The Sun enters Capricorn at 12:11 pm Saturday. Sun in Capricorn natives seem to naturally take leadership positions; they like to have some control over others, although they are not necessarily malicious in wanting power. They just like being in a position where they are not helpless against the tide of events! Sometimes they do get hung up on the respect thing, rather than focusing on getting the job done. Cappy is a natural-born organizer, and is also good at recognizing and developing organizational talents in others. Is willing to delegate. Capricorn natives seem old when they are young, and young (or at least well-kept) when they are old. They have a strong sense of duty and are self-disciplined. Famous people with the Sun in Capricorn include: Cary Grant, Joan Baez, Barry Goldwater, Artur Rubenstein, Muhammad Ali, Kit Carson, Benjamin Franklin, Danny Kaye, Rudyard Kipling, Louis Pasteur, Sir Isaac Newton, and Saint Joan of Arc.
Venus makes a Retrograde Station at 4:53 pm Saturday at 28 degrees 58′ of Capricorn. Venus will go direct again on Jan. 31 at 13 degrees Capricorn. So for these six weeks you may reconsider expressing love, or may doubt the love offered by others. You may also have trouble attracting money into your life. On the plus side, you may have a change of heart about someone, and decide you did not really understand them before. Capricorn is not what you call a forgiving or magnanimous sign, and may insist that you give only as much as you are being given. However, Venus stations represent a change in values, or a change of heart according to Dane Rudhyar. Maybe Capricorn represents “what remains” – and the Venus stations illuminate What Really Matters, and that is generally speaking NOT mere dollar signs. PS– Thursday is the worst day to ask anyone for a favor.
Also, we have a Full Moon this week at 4:28 am Tuesday, at 25 degrees 36′ of Gemini. Jupiter and Saturn remain in trine in water signs, at odds with the air and fire of the Full Moon. Vesta and Ceres remain in a paso-doble at 13 and 17 degrees of Libra this week; relationship matters retain high priority. Use this energy to tackle nagging issues with your partner.

ARIES – March 20-April 19 – Uranus goes direct in your sign on Tuesday; make an effort to apply your new insights into remaking yourself as a new and better person.

LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – Uranus goes direct in your solar ninth house on Tuesday; you have the tendency to attack or try to invalidate the belief systems of all others.

AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Uranus goes direct in your solar third house on Tuesday; you might find you have a knack for mind-to-mind thought transfer.
