Your Milky Way Horoscope April 6-12, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
Mercury enters Aries at 11:35 am Monday. Mercury in Aries has an unfortunate habit of making authoritative pronouncements as if they were holy writ, appearing overbearing or even aggressive. However, the real Aries gift for leading and inspiring others can be expressed through that Mercury so that others willingly follow where you lead. In everyday life, Mercury in Aries is original, a seeker of novel ideas and news, witty, able to think on his or her feet. The downside is that you want your own way at all times, and want your orders followed immediately. Good at leadership in general, whether conducting a band or heading a company. Famous people with Mercury in Aries include: TV comedian Carol Burnett, silent comedian Charlie Chaplin, astronomer Copernicus, conductor Arturo Toscanini, actress Hayley Mills, playwright William Shakespeare, and painter Vincent Van Gogh.
The Sun at 19 degrees Aries opposes Mars in Libra at 5:04 pm Tuesday. The opposition is projection; we perceive others as being angry, argumentative, or competitive, but it is our own such traits that are yearning for expression. Sports or exercise are the most socially accepted ways of working off this kind of energy. To some extent, debate is also accepted, if we are in a situation where we are asked to make our case. We want to prove our case or prove ourselves. We are secretly glad when someone else challenges us to prove our case.
Venus at 6 degrees Pisces conjuncts Neptune at 10:24 pm Friday. If you ever want to fall in love, this is a good time to do it. The other person will seem like everything you have ever wanted; whether that impression will be backed up with solid attributes is another question. The other main interpretation of this aspect has to do with giving things away. You may become convinced that the other person or organization really needs the item, or that it is going to a legitimate charity. It may turn out that the receiver is really a scammer who has been taking advantage of your altruistic, idealistic side. The day favors artistic pursuits, when you have a vision of the finished work, possibly a total fantasy of an ideal world, but so beautiful that it can inspire anyone who sees or hears it. The day does NOT favor business transactions unless possibly you are buying art materials, or a ticket to an art museum. The day favors spending time with loved ones, preferably on a deserted island with no distractions!
