Your Milky Way Horoscope June 1-7, 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 7 degrees Taurus sextiles Neptune in Pisces at 9:16 am Wednesday. All the Venus-Neptune aspects tend to be negative because they allow us to fool ourselves into thinking everything is so gosh-darn hunky-dory, everything is fine, couldn’t be better and so forth. However, if you are just daydreaming, or on vacation, this is FINE!!! Also your creative imagination can kick in, so take your camera or your easel with you on a drive to a scenic area.
The Sun at 15 degrees Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries at 7:20 am Friday. On a mundane level this may merely help us make our friends laugh. You are also mentally active: curious, alert, able to grasp concepts quickly and make leaps in applying these concepts to unusual situations or needs. Pick up a copy of Mechanics Illustrated or some computer mag, look into new software on CNET reviews, that sort of thing.
Mercury goes retrograde at 7:57 am Saturday; it is at 3 degrees 10′ Cancer. (Mercury will go direct the morning of July 1.) Ah yes, everyone’s favorite times of the year are when Mercury goes retrograde; yes, I am making a joke here. Really, this period can be good for some things. Like a vacation. Why? Because you know you will always wind up back home. Good for doing things over, if indeed they need to be redone, and with the benefit of hindsight you can now do it the way it should have been done the first time.

Dear Readers– I continue to recover from an episode of blood clots on the lungs. Thanks for your good thoughts and get-well wishes. 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.

Mercury goes Stationary Retrograde at 4:43 pm Thursday at 3 degrees 18′ of Pisces. It will cross back into Aquarius on Feb. 12 or 13, and go Direct on Feb. 28 at 18 degrees 10′ of Aquarius. Mercury will not cross 3 degrees Pisces again until about March 20, so make a note of any projects or issues that are stalled by the retrograde because they might not really move forward again until March 20. This all depends on whether transiting Mercury contacts (or aspects) any natal planets, too.
More on Mercury Retrograde in Pisces and Aquarius: Some have noted people get pretty slack about keeping up with real-world demands when Mercury retrogrades in Pisces; procrastination can take over and then really snarl your schedule. Psychic or paranormal experiences may enter your mind field. People often feel more stressed, and seek a quiet place to spend a few hours. This retrograding Mercury will actually spend more time in Aquarius, where it makes people more fixed in their views and opinions, causing serious friction both at home and at work. The worst part is that both sides might be wrong. Those who analyze medical astrological data state that they see more nerve and muscle disorders during Mercury retrograde in Aquarius.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 20-26, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury goes retrograde Monday, Oct. 21 at 6:29 am, on 18 degrees 24′ of Scorpio. Also you may wish to make a note of this– Mercury will go direct on Nov. 11 at 2 degrees Scorpio. Mercury retrograde can be a barrel of laughs, really, once things settle down again. But in Scorpio, things can be more serious than mix-ups of schedule – errors can involve making wrong assumptions about guilt or innocence, about fidelity or adultery, about loyalty or betrayal. Mercury will be in my natal first house, so this should be a bit more interesting for me than usual, ha!

The Sun enters Scorpio at 2:10 am Wednesday, sneaking in during the wee hours, and on tiptoe so as not to wake up the wife upstairs. Sun in Scorpio is not one to hang back when it comes to finding out the details of other people’s wishes, needs or desires. They generally will figure out some way of finding out what they wish to know, either by direct or indirect means. Emotions can leak out of Scorpio’s tough hide in a way that can make others uncomfortable or even feel goaded. However, a more mature Scorpio soul can use his intuitive understanding of human nature to uplift, to encourage, and to lend emotional support.

People with Sun in Scorpio can have great personal magnetism, an attraction that has nothing to do with looks. Scorpios are said to be of two or three main types – the scorpion, the snake or serpent, and the soaring eagle for the most spiritually-developed type. Eagles are dedicated laborers for the common good. Scorpios can be quite intelligent plus have the physical stamina to achieve their goals. Famous people with Sun in Scorpio include: soprano Joan Sutherland, artist Pablo Picasso, authors Robert Louis Stevenson and Eugene Ionesco, Marie Curie, Marie Antoinette, Martin Luther, Bobby Kennedy, Richard Burton, Billy Graham, Jonas Salk, Leon Trotsky, and Felix Frankfurter.

The Sun at 2 degrees Scorpio soon trines Neptune in Pisces at 6:41 pm Friday. Spiritual tendencies are stronger under this transit, and favor quiet meditation or walks in natural settings (especially by a body of water or a waterfall). You may even have an ESP experience or something mystical – tuning in to another’s thoughts or feelings, having a peak experience, having a prophetic or powerful dream, etc. Neptune is also strongly idealistic, which can make you vulnerable to being suckered in by a scammer. I get a feeling of buoyancy when thinking of this Sun-Neptune aspect – like a beach ball floating in a pool. Let’s hope that your spirits are buoyed by this transit just like that beach ball!

Mercury Retrograde Struck Again! Trip to Nowhere for Would-Be Conference Attendee

by Milky Way Maid

Mercury retrograde created a true nightmarish Trip to Nowhere for a young would-be attendee of a three-day conference. He arrived at BWI airport on June 27, in time for a departing flight which was delayed two hours. He then arrived in time for a connecting flight in Dallas-Ft. Worth, only to learn that it was cancelled! June 27 was the day after Mercury made its retrograde station.

No flight is scheduled that day but he is given a flight the following day for Atlanta; he spends the night thanks to a hotel voucher. This flight is again delayed but takes off. The bad news is that he misses his connection to Portland and again spends the night in a hotel.

This means he would arrive just as the weekend convention closes. Ha ha, Mercury laughs up his sleeve at the unfortunate traveler. He never made it to Portland, having truly experienced the worst of airline travel. On top of everything else, an airline initially refused him any refund because they said he was a “No Show” (for a flight that had been cancelled)!!!

For all the details on this nightmarish trip, you may go to http://www.hearingloss.org/sites/default/files/docs/TheRoundTripToNoWhere.pdf

Russians launch rocket during Mercury Retrograde – astrologers do a facepalm!

By Milky Way Maid
What were they thinking, anyway? Those Russians launched a 17-story rocket with a $200 million-dollar payload, and it goes kablooey within seconds of liftoff. Sorry but I have no chart for this accident due to the lack of an exact time that it occurred.
“The Russian rocket that exploded during lift-off on Tuesday morning has already cost the country’s government more than $200 million — the estimated value of the three GLONASS satellites that the Proton-M was carrying. But the crash might also be accompanied by significant ecological tolls and human health problems due to the toxic nature of the outdated fuel combination the rocket relies on.”

Your Milky Way Horoscope June 23-29, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

We have a Full Moon at 2 degrees Capricorn at 7:32 am Sunday. The Moon is conjunct Pluto, and sextiles Saturn and Neptune. This seems to be a very somber and serious lunation, although let’s hope that it does not trigger anything tragic in the headlines. I don’t really specialize in New Moon or Full Moon commentary, but if you like, you can right click on this link and bring up an article from Isis Moon Tarot on this lunation: http://isismoontarot.com/index.php/capricorn-full-moon-2013/ She calls the Saturn-Neptune trine, “The Hanged Man.”
Jupiter enters Cancer the Crab at 9:40 pm Tuesday. Jupiter last entered Cancer in July of 2001; the ensuing weight gain was counteracted by the entrance of Saturn in June 2003. But Cancerians will not have a following Saturn to help them lose any weight gained this time around. What does that mean for you, on a practical level? It means you will have to learn a new route home, one that does not take you past that wonderful French or Italian or Greek bakery. It means you will have to watch your calories and salt intake like a hawk. It means you will have to find a more positive expression of Jupiter, using its power to open up new horizons and higher levels of understanding.
Jupiter in Cancer is able to make others feel like they belong in any given social situation, because you understand the longing to belong feeling. You can create a feeling of family in the home or at work. You could host exchange students or other visitors and make them feel comfortable and accepted. Jupiter here is optimistic and good-humored, and often gifted with good fortune, which is sometimes a result of your great intuition. Business luck often comes through associating with liquids (water, milk, beer, wine, etc), with the hospitality or restaurant trade, or with nursing or the home.
Famous people with Jupiter in Cancer include: baseball player Willie Mays, former president Harry Truman, ballerina Margot Fonteyn, Billy Graham, authors J D Salinger and James Thurber, playwright William Shakespeare, actors John Wayne and Leslie Caron, humorist Mark Twain, and singer Andy Williams.
Ooh, a Grand Trine in Water looms on Wednesday! The Sun at 4 and 5 degrees Cancer trines first Saturn in Scorpio (at 5:13 am) then Neptune in Pisces (1:48 pm). Now I should warn you there are some astrologers who feel that grand trines just make people so lazy that nothing ever comes of them. But if one is alert and patient and prepared, one can find opportunities virtually dumped in one’s lap. Because of inertia or mental blocks or whatever, sometimes we reject offers without even thinking about how it might be doable. Don’t let that happen to you! Also pay attention to feelings and intuition and dreams; you may latch onto hidden truths that way.
Mercury at 23 degrees, 5′ of Cancer makes a retrograde station at 9:08 am. Mercury will go direct again on July 20 at 13 degrees Cancer. Since it is in the sign of Cancer, you may find yourself turning more towards family and historical subjects, flipping through photo albums, crying over souvenirs, etc. You may revisit childhood sites like the old school or neighborhood, attend reunions, look up old boyfriends, make those sentimental journeys. Because a great deal of literature is written about childhood experiences but from the distance of many years, you may find yourself writing some kind of reminiscence. So have some writing paper or a journal handy!
That wandering girl, Venus, enters Leo at 1:03 pm Thursday – just a wee bit late for the matinee but all the better to make an entrance. An immature or insecure Venus-in-Leo type can obsessively seek others’ approval whether in the spotlight or in social situations. They don’t realize the power of their Venus to spread sunshine all around, but first they have to turn it on. Stop trying to predict if your expression will meet with applause or not, and just spread those Venus rays. Your power is such that your warmth can free others from disabling emotional trauma as well as the monotony of the daily rut. This placement of Venus marks a truly generous and humanitarian soul.
On a personal level, this Leo is demonstrative and warm, affectionate with his or her own loved ones, especially their children. Famous people with Venus in Leo include: poet Percy Shelley, author Leo Tolstoy, golfer Arnold Palmer, talk-show host and game-show baron Merv Griffin, actress Greta Garbo, playwright George Bernard Shaw, composer Alan Jay Lerner, author Truman Capote, singers Eddie Fisher and Jimmy Dean, conductor Leonard Bernstein, and architect Eero Saarinen.

Your Milky Way Horoscope March 3-9, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury at 7:58 am Monday, at 14 degrees of Pisces. This aspect usually brings calls or callers in pairs or threes, and with Pisces being a double sign anyway, that could double everything. With retrograde Mercury, we will possibly have to redo stuff from before the Merc retrograde station of Feb. 23. In fact this aspect may get confounded with the Venus-Jupiter square the same morning, when befuddled Pisces may promise far more than it can deliver.
Mercury and Venus trine Saturn on Wednesday and Thursday, sandwiching the Mercury-Venus conjunction at 1:54 pm Wednesday at 11 degrees Pisces. The conjunction is generally good for sales; here, with Mercury retrograde, merchants may have to knock the price down a bit to move items. The trine to Saturn favors selling used or scratch-and-dent stuff, all the way up to good antiques or blue-chip stocks.
Mercury at 8 degrees Pisces squares Jupiter in Gemini at 10:38 pm Saturday. Mercury ruling speech and Jupiter ruling bigness means we may tell the biggest fibs ever, the best fish stories, exaggerate, even proselytize (since Jove and Pisces both have an affinity for religion). Take everything you hear today with a big grain of salt, OK?

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.
