Your Milky Way Horoscope May 27-June 2, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun is conjunct Mercury at 6 degrees Gemini at 7:19 am Sunday. It can be difficult to make use of Mercury when it is combust (within 8 degrees of the Sun) or under the Sun’s beams (within 17 degrees). YET when a planet like Mercury is cazimi (within 17 minutes of the center of the Sun), it can be quite powerful. “The Moon remains Cazimi for about an hour – that is, half an hour before and half an hour after the exact conjunction with the Sun (New Moon). Other things being equal, you can use the Cazimi Moon to start something if you really want it to succeed.” So there you have it – some do not see any cazimi effect but then again maybe they did not consciously pick that time to start a blog, company, or project. Mercury-Sun conjunctions are usually a very busy time, sometimes with apparent coincidences. The two Mercury-ruled signs, Gemini and Virgo, may be more affected by Mercury aspects than other signs.
Also the Mercury-Sun conjunction is in close square to Chiron at 9 degrees Pisces. Chiron could make any accidental touch injurious, so be aware of where your hands are and who is next to you or behind you. And it will definitely be better to walk away from an argument than to face charges of battery. Remember also that Mercury is applying to an unpredictable square to Mars, exact on Wednesday. Just walk away, folks. Take notes but walk away.
Mercury at 7 degrees Gemini is sextile Uranus in Aries at 7:38 pm Sunday. You find the internet useful in getting your message out. Good for posting an important blog post or news article. Or Tweet your restaurant review.
The Sun at 7 degrees Gemini is sextile Uranus in Aries at 12:04 pm Monday. Your uniqueness is expressed and finds affirmation and approval. Sudden insights can strike, turning on that light bulb above your head.
Mercury at about 14 degrees Gemini squares Mars in Virgo at 8:20 pm Wednesday. Words can literally excite you, either positively or negatively. Examples: receiving a great job offer, or being baited into a fight. You can get drawn into a debate or receive a summons in a legal case. Don’t push anyone’s buttons, not knowingly anyway.
Mercury is conjunct Venus retrograde at 18 degrees Gemini at 4:31 pm Friday. An ideal time for schmoozing with that very important contact. Mercury-Venus is good for the small talk that greases the social wheels, sharing recipes for sweet things, being charming, showing good manners. This is not anything earth-shaking but if you just need to make a contact that you hope to build into a solid network then this is the time to do so.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 1-7, 2012

By Milky Way Maid

Sunday, New Year’s Day, looks rather contentious – not a relaxing day at all. Start off with a Mercury square Mars at 20 degrees Virgo at 1:06 am for those party-goers from NY’s Eve; the Moon is square the Sun shortly after that. Words will excite you, for good or ill. Very prone to heated argument, but then there is some chance that a speech or job offer will excite you tremendously. So if you are going to propose marriage, be rather certain that the other party will accept, then rest assured she will be deliriously happy about your proposal.
However, at 10:03 am on NY’s Day, the Moon sextiles agreeable Venus at 13 degrees Aquarius, when things calm down into a pleasant brunch, hugs, house-sitting or baby-sitting, exchanging favors of any kind. A good time to ask a favor or do a favor.
Mercury in Sag sextiles Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius 10:15 am Saturday. Nice for saying those sweet nothings to your beloved, but not great for signing contracts or stuff like that. People may have the best of intentions but not be able to fulfill promises for whatever reason, so that is why you prefer not to do personal business at this hour. On the other hand, it supports constructive dreaming– what would you ideally like to do, what kind of atmosphere would you like to have at your place of employment. Dream up a castle in the air, then figure out how to put a foundation under it. You might also use a chant, affirmation, or other little mental trick to help you achieve your goals or overcome personal mental blocks.
Mercury enters businesslike Capricorn at 1:34 am Sunday, Dec. 8 ( or at 10:34 pm Saturday, Pacific Time). Yes, I am jumping the gun, because there are so few outer planets aspects this week. What is Mercury in Capricorn like? A negative expression is the desire to be an authority on a given subject; that sounds admirable until one does not know the answer to something and then declares he doesn’t want to be confused by the facts. But giving up a need for authority, and dropping pretense, lets this Mercury concentrate on filling the informational needs of others – and thereby becoming a true resource for all. Must guard against being too pessimistic or dour; Edgar Allan Poe is one example of someone who used this Mercury well. Others with Mercury in Capricorn are Barry Goldwater, Gen. Douglas MacArthur, and Richard Nixon.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 25-31, 2011. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

By Milky Way Maid

Yay! Old man Jupiter goes direct at 5:08 pm Sunday, Christmas Day, at zero degrees, 22′ of Taurus. Taureans who may have floundered a bit earlier this year when trying to get some luck going, should find things finally begin to come together. The only other exact aspect that day is the Moon trine Mars at 4:11 pm. (Christmas Eve had a Sun-Moon-Pluto conjunction, an aspect that supports self-empowerment initiatives.)
The Sun is conjunct Pluto at 7 degrees Capricorn at 2:43 am Thursday. A bit early even for the old goat Cappy, but if you can get up a bit early to say some affirmations it should really help you accomplish them. You may face some trying situations, especially if this is on your birthday, but you will find out more about yourself and your strengths than you ever imagined.
Mercury in Sag squares Mars at 19 degrees Virgo at 1:06 am Sunday, Jan. 1. Make a resolution to bite your tongue starting New Year’s Eve, hmm? Mercury-Mars squares are OK for debate and possibly vocal performance (acting, singing) but we generally are looking for fun and nice memories on New Year’s Eve, so walk away from arguments that could become blistering very quickly. Some of us might work off that Mars energy with cleaning or baking or gym work.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 4-10, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury at 11 degrees, 51′ Sag at 3:52 am Sunday. Sun-Mercury conjunctions are always a major signpost of the economic cycle so keep an ear tuned to the news from Wall Street (occupied or not). I am going to hazard a guess that the continuing protests by OWS may begin to have an effect on the markets since the movement succeeded in getting thousands of people to withdraw funds from the major banks, and who knows what other measures the protesters make take to make their voices heard by the Haves.
Mercury quickly squares Mars at 10 degrees Sag at 6:19 pm Sunday. Mercury square Mars usually denotes passionate debate, angry words, and given the continuing Occupy Wall Street protests, I would expect that the protests may either turn violent or that the police may ruthlessly crush them. Or both.
Venus in Capricorn trines Mars at 10 degrees Virgo at 10:07 am Monday. Harmonious aspects between male and female energies augur well for starting relationships or for facilitating settlements between opposing parties. One is liable to fall in love with almost anyone so be sure to put yourself near someone that meets your standards. Also creative inspiration is spurred into action by supporting Mars energy.
Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron at almost 1 degree Pisces at 7:03 pm Tuesday. Sufferers may benefit from a healer of any type, from conventional medicine to the laying on of hands. Pisces leans toward spiritual succor.
We have a total Lunar Eclipse at 18 degrees, 11′ Gemini at 9:36 am Saturday. Earlier the same day, Uranus makes a direct station at zero degrees, 39 minutes of Aries. I might note that Jupiter is also nearly at a standstill, and makes his direct station on December 25 at zero degrees, 22′ of Taurus. Even tho this is considered a minor aspect, the semi-sextile will I think have a larger, surprising impact due to the fact that they are stationing and will be sitting on zero degrees of their signs for some time. Uranus is of course the sign of revolution and rebellion and protest, change not just for change’s sake but in the interest of justice and the implied contract (Jupiter) with the people.
An eclipse chart set for New York city has 22 degrees, 16′ Capricorn rising, the sign of Big Business. The Ascendant is widely conjunct Venus in the twelfth house and square Saturn in the ninth of law, national news and the internet; I predict that business will suffer from withheld (Saturn) patronage (Venus) by customers possibly as another phase of the OWS protest. Business might also be frustrated by the limits of legal measures that they can take against the protesters. The Part of Fortune, it may interest you to know, is right on the descendant in Cancer, favoring the protesters. The midheaven is at 16 degrees 26′ Scorpio, conjunct Juno at 15 degrees, sextile Mars in the eighth and sextile Venus in the twelfth. The news may be dominated by a woman, someone who dramatically focuses and balances the energies of rebellion values being debated in the public arena. The Sun is conjunct the North Node (four degrees apart) in the eleventh house, and the nodes are closely square Mars. The nodes also square Ceres at 19 Pisces. Pallas and Vesta are both in Aquarius in the first house.
Jan Spiller says that a lunar eclipse in Gemini brings lessons in how to communicate, both in terms of language and social behavior. Ask for feedback to ensure that what you said is what others heard. One must give up hermit-like tendencies and become more socially aware. One is called upon to share the knowledge one has gained in this life and in previous lives.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 23-29, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun enters intense Scorpio at 2:30 pm, Sunday, Oct. 23. Scorpio is supposedly the sexiest sign, but that news may surprise some Scorpio natives. May not be attractive in the conventional sense, but their intensity and magnetism can draw members of the opposite sex to them. Scorpio may be either the noble eagle or the lower scorpion/snake type; you will probably know which one your Scorpio friend is. The eagle type can be very Aquarian in the sense that they are dedicated to the advancement of the whole human race. The lower type can be jealous or vengeful, or try to dominate others. Scorpios make excellent detectives, spies, researchers, doctors and surgeons, prosecutors, and artists. Famous people with the Sun in Scorpio include Picasso, Robert Louis Stevenson, Marie Antoinette, Martin Luther, Bobby Kennedy, Marie Curie, Richard Burton, Billy Graham, Jonas Salk, Prince Charles, and Felix Frankfurter. Happy birthday to all Scorpios this month.
The Sun trines Chiron in Pisces on Monday at 9:37 am. Your new practitioner may be able to diagnose the exact problem and address its causes. Since Chiron will be in the solar fifth house of Pisces (in the Midwestern New Moon chart), there is some chance of injury to the feet, possibly while dancing, and that this injury causes you to visit a new doc, therapist, or natural healer.
The October New Moon occurs on 3 degrees, 3 minutes of Scorpio at 3:56 pm Wednesday. (The Part of Fortune is at 10 degrees Aquarius, right on the ascendant in a Midwestern chart; also, Vesta is at 11 degrees Aquarius. It says, whatever you need is right there where you are.) The New Moon features: Mars in Leo sextiles Saturn at 21 degrees of Libra at 5:37 am Wed. This aspect favors getting really, really organized, accomplishing one’s mission, and may involve the military. Good for detailed work in metal or stone, or any sustained effort. Venus in Scorpio squares Mars at 22 degrees of Leo at 6:23 pm Wednesday. We may have arguments with loved ones, yet with Venus softening our hearts, we retain a sense of fair play and courtesy – we play by the rules. Relationships begun now are likely to fade after the initial physical attraction fades.
Mercury in the New Moon’s ninth house of national news is conjunct Venus, and square Mars; the military will be in the news, possibly inre appropriations voted on by Congress. Sun-Moon are in the Scorpion’s eighth house but because they are in early degrees, they want to be in the ninth house with the rest of the sign – joining Mercury and Venus. National news is going to be very big that day so stay tuned to your favorite news source.
Mercury in Scorpio squares Mars at 23 degrees of Leo at 11:08 am Friday. Mercury square Mars tends to cause argument, although arguing can be done constructively in the form of debate or other rational discussion. With fixed signs here, it is not likely that anyone’s mind is going to be changed quickly, so maybe you should just agree to differ and move on to other topics. You may be irritable and cranky, impatient enough to jump a green light and cause an accident, so use extra care. This aspect can also make for exciting athletic contests, ones that feature fast hand- or foot-work, passing the ball, or where deception may be useful.
Jupiter in Taurus trines Pluto at 5 degrees of Capricorn at 12:29 pm Friday. Big Business (Pluto in Capricorn) has a good week.
The Sun in Scorpio opposes Jupiter at 5 degrees Taurus and sextiles Pluto at 9:42 pm and 11:11 pm Friday, respectively.
NOTE: In several entries below I refer to events in possibly two months’ time; this involves fixed signs so I know it probably will not happen in days or weeks – but there is a chance that it may take 2-4 months, or even two years to play out. I hope not!

Even more titles to come soon. Thanks for your support (and patience). Note that the Intuition book, listed in Part One, has sold.

Your Milky Way Horoscope April 4-10, 2010

Venus at 5 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn late Sunday; love and sex can get very intense under this transit. Relationships may be transformed or you may gain new insights into each other. Someone may suddenly turn out to be a lot deeper than you thought, once you’ve had a good chat with him or her.
Mercury at 3 degrees Taurus squares Mars in Leo at 12:17 am Monday. Use logic and reason when dealing with things you desire. You may have to negotiate with others over getting time off to pursue your hobbies or go on club outings. You might really enjoy a spirited debate (formal or informal), too, but don’t expect to change your opponent’s mind.
Mercury at 5 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 6:46 am Tuesday. This is excellent for research and detective work of any kind. Get out the deerstalker hat and gather your usual suspects together.
Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo (2:51 pm Wednesday, April 7), alas for Virgoans who were just beginning to relax. Time to tidy up any loose ends of matters unfinished when Saturn entered Libra last Oct. 29. You have until late July to get it done right this time, so get along there. At least the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) get a bit of a breather for the spring/summer.
Hey, got sick under a Sun square natal Mars transit. It ought to have given me a big burst of energy, but my bad habits and a bad batch of soup got me. Down I went with a case of food poisoning (I think). I needed the ‘inner cleanse’, like it or not. If one does not give an outlet for that Mars energy, one can easily get sick, so that is what happened to lazy me!

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.
