Your Milky Way Horoscope July 21-27, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

Mars is conjunct Jupiter at 5 degrees Cancer at 3:35 am Monday. This conjunction is marked by high physical energy plus confidence – so much so that you may be willing to accept risks that you might not otherwise accept. (Just make sure there is a net underneath you.) It is favorable for new beginnings. We feel more competitive in sports and try a lot harder to win it all. You can get on a roll!
Venus enters practical Virgo at 8:41 am Monday. Venus placed here is a little too judgmental of others, too quick to write off people who fall short of their high standards. However, if this Venus can put aside that judgmental tendency, she can help others by showing them how to accomplish practical skills – skills like how to parent, how to wash dishes, how to bake cookies, how to balance a check book, etc. You may notice that the Virgo Venus has more acquaintances than friends, because she tends to keep people at arm’s length at least until she knows them better.
Famous people with Venus in Virgo include: showman and columnist Ed Sullivan, author Ernest Hemingway, performers Julie Andrews, Anne Bancroft, Mike Douglas and Lucille Ball, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, revolutionaries Fidel Castro and Chiang Kai-Shek, and golfer Ben Hogan.
The Sun enters its home sign of Leo at 11:56 am Monday. Leo Suns are gregarious and warm individuals who open their homes and souls to the favored few – or to many, if their finances allow for it. Yet at the same time, Leo has certain traps, such as demanding attention whether it is deserved or not, and taking criticism too personally. They do shine when in the spotlight, but they shine even better when encouraging others to express their talents. Their enthusiasm can lift all boats. Please don’t assign Leos to menial tasks as a career. It isn’t that they wouldn’t chip in and help in a pinch, but a daily diet of meaningless tasks is just too deadening. They can work very hard in careers that challenge them. They are ambitious and can rise to executive positions.
Famous people with Sun in Leo include: Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Percy B. Shelley, George Bernard Shaw, Napoleon Bonaparte, Julia Child, Dag Hammarskjold, Casey Stengel, Ben Hogan, Paul Tillich, Dr. Ralph Bunche, Vitas Gerulaitis, Raoul Wallenberg, Neil Armstrong, Michelle Yeoh, Stan Freberg, Whitney Houston, Hulk Hogan, Connie Chung and Princess Anne.
Venus at 4 degrees Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces at 8:08 am Friday. There is always the element of deception when Neptune is involved. Maybe someone builds himself up to be a better catch than he or she is – but you find that in the average personals ad, anyway. Neptune can also add a dash of glamor to the aura of that seemingly-perfect someone, which evaporates as soon as your eyes open a little wider. Romances can begin under this transit but do keep your wits about you. Get a friend to introduce you to someone.
Venus at 5 degrees Virgo sextiles Saturn at 2:36 pm Friday. Saturn calls your attention to the fact that healthy relationships require some mutual duties. Most of them are a pleasure to do for someone you love. You may feel drawn to an older person, whether for advice or for love. On a more mundane level, this transit can be very good for doing crafts that require attention to detail – since Virgo rules textiles, this may mean weaving or embroidery.
Saturday night looks very stressful with Mars at 9 degrees Cancer opposite Pluto at 6:47 pm, and the Sun at 5 degrees Leo square Saturn at 9:06 pm Saturday. Mars (with Jupiter nearby) is willing to apply great effort – only to run up against an immovable object like Pluto. The Sun is also being crossed by an immovable object, Saturn, which is like a stone wall. Pluto is more like a tsunami, earthquake, the Army, or merely the march of history. So this is not a good time to expect a wish to come true, at least, not if you have personal planets at around 5 or 9 degrees of the fixed and cardinal signs.

Your Milky Way Horoscope May 1-7, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Mars and Jupiter are conjunct at 22 degrees of Aries at 12:26 am Sunday, May 1. These two planets when conjunct or even square can denote risk-taking, fortunately with Jupiter protecting the risk-taker from the worst that could happen (but best not to count on that, folks). People may buy handfuls of lottery tickets, take off for the wide blue yonder without filing a flight plan, go to Vegas, gamble on a penny stock, go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, etc. You get the idea. Please, file the flight plan, have a plan B for whatever, and if gambling, keep to your established stop-loss amount.
The Sun at 11 degrees of Taurus is inconjunct Saturn in Libra at 9:34 am Monday. You have been chafing at restrictions or the lack of some necessities, but now you have an opportunity to figure out some way of adapting more happily to your situation. You could experience an easing of said restrictions and lacks. Perhaps you arrange to barter or trade with others, or find an inexpensive alternative to your usual purchases.
The New Moon is at 2:51 am Tuesday, at 12 degrees, 31 minutes of Taurus. The Sun-Moon are inconjunct Saturn, so let’s hope that you manage to make do with less, and do it more successfully. Sun-Moon are trine Pluto, helping you to take control of your life again. (Perhaps you also get a little help from friends in high places.) Sun-Moon are also square Pallas and Vesta in Aquarius; a lawyer, advisor, or advocate may be able to help you resolve problems, although you will have to set things in motion. So keep asking around for someone or some agency that may be able to help.
Taureans might do a candle lighting, and sit down to write out their Venus-ruled wishes for the month, such as ‘to find beauty everywhere’ or ‘to hear beautiful music’ or even ‘to pay off X loan or debt so that Y will finally be truly yours.’

Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 15-21, 2009

The Sun enters Pisces on Wednesday. Mark the day with fish on the menu, hmm?
do think that Tuesday’s Mars conjunct Jupiter (and North Node) on Tuesday offers a huge opportunity to those who can stomach the risk. You may look down and the slope resembles a ski jump; maybe you shouldn’t look down. But those who know what they’re doing can sprout wings.

A gift to my lovely readers —

As a special gift to my readers I thought you might enjoy some background music. A terrific writer and geek found these archived radio recordings of the Beatles for a Swedish radio show way back when. He cleaned them up a bit and edited them, and here they are. Five songs in cool condition. So turn up the volume alright already.
