Your Milky Way Horoscope May 18-24, 2014
By Milky Way Maid
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 17-18 degrees Aries squares Jupiter in Cancer at 11:31 am Sunday. Vesta at 16 degrees Libra, and Ceres at 19 Libra, pull opposite Venus, and Chiron at 17 Pisces trines Jupiter. Vesta in Libra martyrs themselves for others, while Ceres there is always concerned with fairness and honesty. I could see someone willingly stepping aside from a relationship or marriage just to make the other person happy. Chiron is often the bond between two life partners, but it can be the wound that causes them to separate for good, too. It all seems to add up to a divorce or legal separation for some of us. With the Venus-Jupiter square, a strong urge to socialize finds expression, although resistance to tempting buffets is low so take along someone who will help you maintain your willpower.
Mars at 9 degrees 2′ Libra is Stationary Direct (SD) at 9:31 pm Monday. (This is closely inconjunct Juno at 12 degrees Taurus which may produce some surprises for natives of these signs.) Matters that seemed to have the brakes on, will suddenly start to lurch forward, so hang on to the roof strap and hang on tight. You may have had to put some things to the side until a health problem was resolved – let me add that I have had to delay some health procedures until I finished a course of medication as a treatment resulting from an emergency several months ago. You may have had to face the fact that you cannot take your health for granted any more. You may finally be able to finish some projects that had been put on hold. Your frustrations over these delays may suddenly burst forth and not in a healthy way; count ten, count a hundred, punch a pillow or take a walk! Then go forth, wiser and healthier, probably with better habits diet-wise or exercise-wise. Your energy may return at long last, possibly with the adoption of yoga, breathing exercises, Tai Chi routines, and the like. One’s energy tends to return when one has begun to focus on a Purpose or Intent behind one’s actions; having a goal tends to help us find the energy to reach it! Good Luck!
The Sun enters Gemini at 10:59 pm Tuesday. (The Sun squares Pallas just entering Virgo. Pallas in Virgo may make a career out of service in a constructive way. Geminis have Pallas in their solar fourth house, so they might start a home business, possibly related to clothing, accessories, or other textile arts.) Gemini Sun-Sign people are not exactly shallow, but they do want to experience a lot of variety in life, so they skip from one activity to another, one idea to another, etc. hardly giving themselves time to delve deeply into any one thing. They charm others with sparkling conversation and wit, but because they often refuse to discuss personal feelings they keep others at arm’s length. They do have a gift for setting others at ease at first meeting, and they give others the chance to express themselves verbally. Geminis enjoy sampling a wide range of ideas and experiences. Memory is good, but too often they just remember enough to recite by rote. Health can be iffy, as Gemini is often prone to lung ailments. Geminis often have two or more sources of income, sometimes from wildly different jobs. They may even have two love interests at the same time, as they dither over which one is the Real Thing. Geminis love to travel, and their jobs may require them to report to more than one office or meet clients face to face in other offices or the client’s home.
Famous people with the Sun in Gemini include: Judy Garland, composers Richard Wagner and Richard Strauss, John F Kennedy, actors James Arness and John Wayne, author William Styron, poet Walt Whitman, Thomas Mann, Robert McNamara, Bob Hope, Beatle Paul McCartney, David and Laurence Rockefeller, Jets quarterback Joe Namath, Bob Dylan, Howard Hawks, Andy Griffith, F Lee Bailey, Helen Hunt.
Jupiter at 19 degrees Cancer trines Saturn in Scorpio at 1:48 pm Saturday. This can mark a good time to start/expand a business (or website) or work towards realizing an ambition. You may feel like reaching out to parent others, even parent the whole world (this might be the sign Cancer talking), but try not to step on other’s need for independence. Cancer can be rather ambitious, and both signs can be quite practical as well as emotional – so this might be a good time to work out practical ways to satisfy your emotional needs.
