Your Milky Way Horoscope May 11-17, 2014

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at StopTheClot.org to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.
Venus at 9 degrees Aries opposes Mars in Libra at 5:27 am Sunday. Some of us may be attracted to a new love interest but it will be based primarily on a physical attraction, which may or may not have anything more substantial to maintain it. Those who are already in a relationship may find this transit magnifies whatever is already in the situation, for good or ill. You may feel like the Other person is to blame for anything wrong in the relationship. You might sublimate frustrations into creative work, rather than take things out on your partner. Creative energy is stimulated by conflict, sometimes working things out in painting or pottery or any other craft.
Mercury at 7 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 8:35 am Sunday. This is just about the definition of confusion. Verbal or written instructions can be garbled, you can easily get lost while driving or miss your connection if flying. You might feel a little spacey, a little out of touch with the here-and-now. The transit can favor studying unusual subjects like metaphysics, the mystical, things like reincarnation, numerology, astrology, tarot, etc. It is not a day for signing contracts of any kind, especially if looking for a car, computer, horse, etc.
Venus at 13 degrees Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn at 1:47 pm Wednesday. Venus square Pluto is said to signify romantic obsession, sometimes to the degree of someone like Glenn Close in “Fatal Attraction.” You could meet someone that you feel is a soul mate, but there are obstacles, or one party rejects the other.
Venus at 14 degrees Aries is conjunct Uranus at 7:54 pm Thursday. Leading up to that conjunction, Mercury makes sextiles to Venus and then Uranus starting at 5:54 pm. Venus conjunct Uranus often brings a sudden romance (or at least an introduction to) a new love interest, with the new person having something unusual about them such as an accent or a strange way of dressing-thinking-supporting themselves. Uranus is sometimes the foreigner, so you may meet someone from a different country (hence the accent). Usually these alliances are not durable, but they are sure interesting while they last! Very rarely this transit may bring sudden windfalls (or sudden expenses) if they contact a natal planet, the second house cusp, or the ruler of your second house.

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 – Sunday’s Venus-Mars opposition can be pretty good for spending time with your life partner, as long as you can let the other person pick what to do next sometimes. On Monday you may have an urge to take a day trip with your mate, or at least start planning a weekend getaway. You may feel pessimistic about health issues Wednesday, but that will pass. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your sign Thursday night could make you irresistible due to your independent spirit, which is just one of your charms.
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – Spending may be on the agenda for Monday, just make sure you have checked out the market values so you don’t overpay for a car, for example. Wednesday’s Full Moon in Scorpio will probably accent partnership issues; beware tendencies toward obsession or domination. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your twelfth house Thursday night could usher in a secret love, someone who is very different from you but totally irresistible.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Sunday morning’s Venus-Mars opposition can spur creative juices, so pull out your paints, clay or camera to express yourself with.

Wednesday’s Full Moon accents workplace issues, where you might get drawn into a drama that really does you no good. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your eleventh house Thursday night could bring a new and fascinating addition to your circle of friends.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Sunday’s Venus-Mars opposition could mean stress from trying to balance home and career demands.

The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your tenth house Thursday night could bring unexpected perks or even a raise from your employer. Stick to routines on Friday. The internet is confusing Saturday afternoon, make sure you read those movie listings correctly.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – It is useless to argue with a professor or lawyer Sunday (or Monday). You may enjoy a day trip with some friends Monday; you ought to at least jump at an offer of such a trip in the near future. Wednesday’s Full Moon puts the accent on home and family, with work-related travel putting some stress on family ties. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your ninth house Thursday night could bring an unexpected decision in a legal matter, with a payment or windfall as the result.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Venus-Mars opposition puts stresses on finances (your vs ours) so you may be working out a division of responsibilities for assorted bills. Wednesday’s Full Moon affects transit, education, or communications; I suspect that financing of college tuition for the kids is the major issue here. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your eighth house Thursday night could affect finances one way or another in an unexpected way. Stick to routine stuff Friday. On Saturday you enjoy visiting a local attraction or restaurant with your mate.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 –The Moon is in Libra from Sunday (Mother’s Day) till Monday night. Early risers Sunday have plenty of energy to tackle a beautification project such as painting, weeding out clothes from the closet, etc. The afternoon may frustrating if you were counting on someone to come and lend a hand, who does not show up. Sunday’s Venus-Mars opposition can be pretty good for spending time with your life partner, as long as you can let the other person pick what to do next sometimes. The Moon is void from almost 9 pm Sunday night till it enters Scorpio about 9 pm Monday, so stick to routine matters during that time. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your seventh house Thursday night could usher in a fascinating and unusual love interest or partner, at least for the short term.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 9:07 pm Monday till early Thursday. Mid-morning on Tuesday is probably going to be either chaotic or idealistic, but either way your work may suffer. You may benefit from a chat with a mentor-type Tuesday night. Wednesday morning favors knuckling down to getting lots of work done, so have your to-do list ready to tackle. Let a partner shine in the spotlight Wednesday afternoon. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your sixth house Thursday night could bring an unusual coworker to the workplace.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 1:44 am Thursday till Saturday morning. Thursday afternoon is probably going to be confusing and your brain will just not get into gear, so it is best to either hand the reins to someone else or stick to routine. Romantic matters could take a surprising turn Thursday night, or you could meet a fascinating new love interest who has an accent. The Moon is void all day Friday so stick to routine matters.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday’s Venus-Mars opposition could mean stress from trying to balance home and career demands. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your fourth house Thursday night could signal hosting an unusual visitor, perhaps a foreign exchange student. The Moon is in Capricorn from 4:12 am Saturday thru the weekend. The afternoon favors enjoying a matinee at the cinema, or possibly swimming in a nice heated pool. You hurry too much Saturday night and may wind up having to redo your work.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Sunday’s Venus-Mars opposition may trigger debates over beliefs, theories, or practical application of abstract values. Midday Monday favors holding a brainstorming session, possibly with other air signs; write down every loony idea for evaluation later. The Venus-Uranus conjunction in your third house Thursday night could bring a “phone call from a stranger” or probably just an email from someone you have not heard from in quite a while. Stick to routines Friday.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Creative energies may be stimulated by the Venus-Mars opposition Sunday, so pull out your paints or clay or yarn to express yourself with. Wednesday’s Full Moon in compatible Scorpio could reactivate a legal matter.

Impulsive spending Friday can easily blow the budget. Saturday favors spending time with friends.
