Your Milky Way Horoscope June 8-14, 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 12 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 9:38 pm Sunday. Venus with Pluto is very passionate, very fertile; so the word is take extra birth-control precautions if you do not have plans to add to your family. This is of course if these planets conjoin or aspect NATAL or PROGRESSED personal planets. The trine could simply mean that you become more intensely involved with person you are already seeing/dating. There is some chance that congenital (Pluto) conditions might be successfully treated, especially blood conditions (Venus) and especially via gene or stem-cell (Pluto again) therapy.
Neptune at 7 degrees 36′ Pisces goes Stationary Retrograde at 3:51 pm Monday. We might not be proud of everything we do this summer, because it will be all too easy to stoop to underhanded methods to get what we want. Or we might not be proud of people that we prefer to look up to, when their dirty laundry gets aired in public. On the other hand, Neptune retrograde is probably ideal for taking extended vacations, because one of the meanings of Neptune is holiday, in the sense of taking a holiday from normal chores and duties. Also in the sense of taking a trip to places where your niche in the scheme of things is nebulous and fluid, because no one knows who you are or who you are related to or any of that surface stuff.
Venus at 17 degrees Taurus opposes Saturn in Scorpio at 12:09 am Friday. Venus in good aspect to Saturn can polish up the raw ambition, so the opposition (I would think) would mean that attempts to schmooze with influential people falls flat, or you put your foot squarely in your own mouth. You ask for kind advice, and you get the harsh truth instead. You ask for what you feel you have worked for, and are told no, you have not earned enough points or whatever to claim the thing. At worst, you ask for love and you are turned down or rejected outright. Oh this is a nasty transit, one that threatens to send you to the ice cream freezer at the local grocery store.
Mars at 12 degrees Libra squares Pluto in Capricorn at 8:34 am Saturday. Don’t be surprised if you run into a human bulldozer, someone who bullies you out of his way and is terribly rude and blunt about it! Granted, Mars in Libra might possibly be a bit more polite than I expect, but you know how Libra is – you push them too far and then suddenly they snap and declare war on you. It might be well to walk on eggshells today.
We have a Full Moon at 22 degrees Sag at 12:11 am Friday, after which the Moon promptly goes Void-of-Course. Most likely, Sag natives should refrain from ambitious plans this month, lest all their efforts go for naught. Mutable signs should probably stick to routine matters, although they should follow up on things started before the Full Moon. Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and now Neptune are all retrograde, which makes it even less likely that new plans will get off the ground. Most of us will probably have to make adjustments when original plans cannot be fulfilled on schedule or as designed; in other words we may all have to improvise a bit!

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 – You are not normally a chaotic person but there is probably at least a closet or file that you really need to keep ship-shape this summer. One issue has to do with money in some way; perhaps an old debt has completely slipped your mind and now the loan comes due with interest. On Saturday you juggle competing needs of career and spouse, not always successfully. If you make a promise to spend the day together, by golly you need to follow through on that; make some memories together!
TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – Your ruler Venus is active this week so expect your heartstrings to feel some tugs. Early in the week, your Venus love-nature is looking to make things legal with your inamorata. With the Neptune retrograde, friends may prove unreliable or hard to reach all summer and fall. Friday does not favor asking your romantic partner for any favors. Saturday night is much better for spending some quality time with loved ones. Best day may be Saturday in general, though you may be working hard – probably something like cleaning out the garage.
GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – Best day of the week may be Sunday morning with the moon in compatible Libra; personal contacts are pleasant and ideas flow readily. Career ambitions may seem frustratingly elusive all summer and fall; that will be the Neptune retrograde talking to you. Also with your ruler Mercury gone retrograde as well, you may get frustrated that calls are not returned or plans go awry; but you don’t mind making second or third voice-mails. Friday’s Full Moon in Sag will accent relationships with short-term partners and mates.
CANCER – June 21-July 22 – Legal matters go into limbo all summer and fall, but travel takes your mind off of unimportant matters. Best day may be Monday if you are on vacation, but Tuesday if you are at work. Don’t try to make a friend into a romantic interest, or vice-versa. Friday’s Full Moon in Sag means that the month may see you quite busy at work with short-term projects or working on ad-hoc committees.
LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – It may be difficult to get answers from insurance companies or investment firms all summer; make sure everything is explained before you plunk down your money. Best day of the week may be Thursday, when fire signs are energetic and fun-seeking. Ambitions can be thwarted late in the week; make sure you get the latest updates on the boss’ personal details before embarrass yourself by asking about the spouse who recently walked out or died or something like that.
VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury’s retrograde bothers you more than it does other signs, because you expect to be letter-perfect all the time; but give yourself a break when you too prove to be merely human. Partners in general can seem elusive or at least terribly distracted all summer; you will have to be the organized one. Best day of the week may be Tuesday night, when good times with boon companions beckon. Friday may deliver a financial wake-up call, so you may have to adopt new habits like saving important receipts or send yourself bill reminders.
LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from Sunday till Monday morning. Sunday morning favors making some quality time with loved ones, possibly planning or embarking on a long vacation together. The Moon goes void in mid-afternoon, so stick to routine matters. Coworkers may need reminders about meetings and projects, and you may have to step in and organize their calendars etc all summer. You may get bulldozed by a rude person Saturday morning, although I know you can put them in their place sweetly.
SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 6:38 am Monday till midday Wednesday. You catch up with all the latest over lunch with associates Monday. Monday night favors a night out at the movies, possibly with the kids. Don’t expect to find someone to trade favors with Tuesday morning, but don’t let that send you into a blue mood. Things look up towards evening. You rather enjoy being out of touch with the office while on holiday this summer. Friday does not favor asking your romantic partner for any favors.
SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 11:23 am Wednesday till midday Friday. The Moon makes no exact aspect Wednesday, so just follow your own agenda. Thursday morning finds your energy high and your friends ready for a bit of competition. You enjoy a child’s unique perspective Thursday afternoon. Friday morning has a void Moon so stick to routine matters. A friend may get blunt about demanding repayment of a loan, and you really should not have let it go so long.
CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 1:04 pm Friday into next Sunday. You may have difficulty reaching people by phone or email Friday afternoon, perhaps they leave the office early for the weekend. Don’t try to make a friend into a romantic interest, or vice-versa. Saturday morn can be rather um, challenging shall we say? DO NOT waste time arguing with police or other authority figures. Saturday night is perfect for memorable quality time with loved ones, or for sports.
AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Best day of the week may be Sunday morning with the moon in compatible Libra; personal contacts are pleasant and ideas flow readily. Be extra careful to check your bank statements and receipts all summer, or retrograde Neptune could deliver unpleasant surprises. Ambitions can be thwarted late in the week; make sure you get the latest updates on the boss’ personal details before embarrass yourself by asking about the spouse who recently walked out or died or something like that.
PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – Your ruler Neptune goes retrograde this week so expect that discipline will be forgotten. You will seem to dither and be horribly unorganized this summer, but you are determined not to worry about details while on extended holiday. Friday may deliver a financial wake-up call, so you may have to adopt new habits like saving important receipts or send yourself bill reminders. You may have to get creative Saturday about evading certain responsibilities.
