Your Milky Way Horoscope May 25-31, 2014

By Milky Way Maid

Dear Readers– Please visit the website of the National Blood Clot Alliance at to learn more about blood clots and when you might need to see a doctor about it.

Mercury at 29 Gemini sextiles Venus in Aries at 9:58 am Wednesday. This is followed by a New Moon at 7 degrees 21′ Gemini at 2:40 pm. Ooh, late degree of Aries and Gemini favors starting writing a book – any kind of book, a novel or cookbook or biography, just anything. Or if you really are not inclined to do any writing, you might take a very pleasant drive out to the countryside to see lovely signs of spring. You need to recharge your Beauty quota with scenic mountains or beach or fields. If it contacts native planets, you may find it easier to express your affection for dear ones. The Gemini New Moon will reinforce themes of communication (keeping things light, cocktail party chatter) as well as transit or travel. You may have to do more traveling for work, for example.
The Sun at 7 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 7:44 pm Wednesday. Any planet in combination with Neptune brings the risk of fraud or deception, but with the Sun there could indicate SELF-deception. You might be only fooling yourself if you minimize warning signs of trouble. Best to be proactive and check things out. Also a good chance of getting lost if you out looking for an address without good directions on how to get there.
Venus enters its home sign of Taurus at 9:46 pm Wednesday. Venus in Taurus likes to touch things. She likes the feel of silk, velour, polished stones or woods, and your nice peach-fuzzy face. Likes to smell the roses, too, or a bar of lavender soap, or any of zillions of small luxuries. Needs to learn to share material possessions, maybe loan out that garden tool or a book or two. Some people feel that there is no such thing as platonic love where a Venus Taurus is involved, but I am not so sure about that. Venus in Taurus is pretty conventional, preferring to marry rather than live with someone or play the field, although in later life they might feel that such rules don’t matter anymore. They want to fall in love and know that it will last forever. Has artistic sensitivities, and may be a musician, artist, or a mere collector of pretty things. FAMOUS PEOPLE with Venus in Taurus include: Doris Day, Charlie Chaplin, Richard Wagner, Bobby Darin, Ann-Margret, Paul McCartney, Hayley Mills, and Prince Edward.
Mercury enters Cancer at 5:12 am Thursday. Mercury (or the Moon) in Cancer has a prodigious memory, especially memories that are emotionally loaded. If well aspected, they are often great ones for knowing historical facts and dates. Sometimes their rational mind can be overwhelmed by emotional thoughts, so that their communication with other is at times filled with an emotional content that is not appropriate to the situation. Is capable of great emotional sensitivity and empathy, and can reach out to others in a caring way. Can be remarkably intuitive, of knowing something without knowing HOW they know it. Usually prefers to make decisions based on precedent rather than on daring innovations. Sometimes collects antiques or historical relics. FAMOUS PEOPLE with Mercury in Cancer include: actress Leslie Caron, Nelson and David Rockefeller, composer Igor Stravinsky, educator Thomas Mann, pianist Van Cliburn, singer-composer Paul Anka, Mary McCarthy.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 24-30, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun at 2 degrees Sag is square Neptune in Pisces at 12:53 pm Sunday. Ooh, Sun and Neptune together are not good. You might get lost when driving somewhere, and that is the least innocuous thing that could happen. Other possibilities include being scammed, getting sick with something that is hard to diagnose or pinpoint the cause of, or you could have your deep, dark secret revealed to the world in a most embarrassing way. Sun is also square Pallas in Virgo,

Mercury (direct this time) at 16 degrees Scorpio is conjunct Saturn at 8:55 pm Monday. When we last saw this aspect on Oct. 29, Mercury was retrograde. So try to recall if there were any serious discussions that day, and what the topic was. You may have more information to go on at this point, and can undoubtedly correct the data and move forward with a better plan. They are square Juno at 15 degrees Aquarius, so one partner may fluctuate between detachment and intensity, and just when things start heating up, one is called in to a work emergency. Arrgghh!! Will have to figure out a way to accommodate each other’s schedules, possibly with the aid of a personal assistant.

Mercury at 18 degrees Scorpio is sextile Venus in Capricorn at 9:45 pm Wednesday. Mercury in positive aspect to Venus turns on the charm, which includes perfect manners, compliments, sweet nothings, possibly a love note or two, etc. Even if you are normally unexpressive, you will be able to stammer out those three little words. You may be able to get a good recipe for a sweet treat, shared by a dear friend. You may take a short trip with a loved one, possibly to enjoy scenic views, or to check out early holiday decorations. Take a camera along, because the scenery may offer a memorable moment.

Mercury at 19 degrees Scorpio trines Jupiter in Cancer at 2:24 am Thursday. Mercury and Jove are both mental planets, so positive aspects favor anything related to education, any course of study or a seminar or private study. You will pick up the material very easily. On another level, the two planets together spell joviality, having the gift of gab, so that you successfully schmooze with the boss for example at the company dinner. You are also optimistic that things will work out in your life in general. You can handle even the most difficult problems with style. Buying or selling real estate or other major investments is favored, as is handling any legal matters.

Venus at 19 degrees Capricorn opposes Jupiter in Cancer at 7:01 am Thursday. In some ways this can be a sad aspect, even though the two major benefics are involved. You may be in love with someone who is far beyond your social class or otherwise unreachable, and that is truly tragic if you both decide to let love die rather than try to make it work. One can start new relationships under this transit, or look deeper under the superficial shell of the loved one. Can be a pleasant day if you avoid overdoing guilty pleasures to the point of getting sick.

The Moon is in Libra on Thursday, Thanksgiving Day. We will ooh and aah at especially artistic floats in the morning parades, and later at the beautifully set table for the holiday feast. Use your best dishes and napkins to set the table, and pick up some flowers for a centerpiece. With Vesta and Ceres both in lovely Libra for the holiday, her feast is sure to be spectacular.

The Sun at 8 degrees Sag trines Uranus in Aries at 1:25 pm Saturday. Sun-Uranus aspects put the wind in your hair as you blast yourself out of a rut. You get encouragement or approval for your (possibly quirky) uniqueness, or you may make others laugh when making them see things from a different perspective. Be careful though, because the Sun is square Chiron in Pisces; don’t fall off your motorcycle! You are excited and excitable, dancing around your new toy or exploring new terrain. Possible interest in arcane subjects like astrology, computer and other tech stuff, psychology, hypnotism, or signing up for a class or session with a practitioner.

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.

ARIESMarch 20-April 19 – You get away with all kinds of shenanigans on Sunday. Early risers on Thursday have helpers to put on a special holiday breakfast; this is followed by making wisecracks about all the floats on the televised parades. Friday shopping is frustrating and work is pointless because you cannot get hold of anybody. On Saturday you crack everybody up, possibly by putting a funny video clip on the internet.

TAURUSApril 20-May 20 – Your mate may want to have a serious chat Monday night, so lend a sympathetic ear even though it may be confusing when he shifts from cool logic to rampant emotion and back again. You might elect to have your holiday dinner on Tuesday; the Moon is in compatible Virgo, and in nice aspect to both Venus and Jupiter. Thursday is not bad, but the table may be so pretty that you hate to dig in and break up the picture-perfect image. Let your mate sleep in on Saturday.

GEMINIMay 21-June 20 – You have a rather idealistic picture of the perfect holiday that you want to achieve for Thursday, but give yourself a break if it falls short a bit. At any rate, you will put in a lot of effort on Tuesday to spruce up the house and decorate. A rather serious meeting may be held at work either late Monday or early Tuesday. The holiday itself has the Moon in compatible Libra, so you keep the flow of light-hearted chatter going very easily.

CANCERJune 21-July 22 – Sunday’s preliminary seating chart for the holiday will have to be redone more than once. You may get stressed out by too many errands Monday; take a tip from Santa and make your list, check it twice. Tuesday favors showering the object of your desire with flowers, compliments and love notes. Stick to routine matters on Friday. You may have a Saturday session with a practitioner of hypnotism, Geo-Trans, or other system that blasts you out of your rut.

LEOJuly 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo on Sunday, but is void-of-course all day; stick to routine matters. On Monday your mate addresses serious matters, which is good, but the cold logic used can be unbearable. On Tuesday you may be prevailed upon to share your secret recipe for a beloved holiday treat. Thursday is definitely a day to practice pushing yourself away from the table, lest you overdo to the point of getting sick. You laugh with pleasure Saturday when one of the kids posts a funny clip online.

VIRGOAug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 7:11 am Monday till Wednesday afternoon. Be careful what you eat at lunch Monday, lest you set off your allergies. You feel so unappreciated that afternoon. Love notes and compliments fill the air on Tuesday. Offers to help (with the Turkey Day duties?) come in Tuesday night. You may have to make another place at the table in return, tho. Pallas has entered Virgo, so you are probably the Ask-the-Expert that everyone calls for details on the correct way to prepare the turkey.

LIBRASept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 5:00 pm Wednesday till late Friday. Wednesday morning finds you energized and ready to start preparations for the big day. An agent of change may walk into your life Thursday, but don’t be alarmed. With Vesta and Ceres both in your sign for the holiday, your feast is sure to be spectacular. Friday is spent ruing how you fell off your diet.

SCORPIOOct. 23-Nov. 21 – Thursday finds you in an optimistic mood, also eager to learn all there is to know about arcane subjects. The Moon is in Scorpio from 11:03 pm Friday thru the weekend. On Saturday someone may give you a good tip regarding a lucrative job opening; maybe you can sign on as last-minute holiday help. You enjoy doing puzzles or reading a mystery in the afternoon.

SAGITTARIUSNov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Monday and Tuesday the Moon is in compatible Gemini, when you probably contact everyone who is expected to attend the holiday gathering to coordinate travel and schedules. The second half of the week may find you spending as much time with friends as with relatives; perhaps there are too many miles between you and siblings this year. Stick to routine matters on Friday. A child makes you break up laughing on Saturday.

CAPRICORNDec. 22-Jan. 19 – You are too likely to get hopelessly lost on Sunday, so leave the driving to someone who has been at your destination many times. Tuesday is probably your best day of the week, with the Moon in compatible Virgo and many lovely, easy transits involving friends and your beloved mate. Thursday is sure to be a day of hustle and bustle to get the feast ready and wait on your visitors. Friday can be frustrating and it may be better to stay in rather than shop.

AQUARIUSJan. 20-Feb. 17 – Long-distance calls keep your phone busy the second half of the week. The holiday favors schmoozing with the boss, at least by making an unofficial phone call to wish him a lovely feast. Thursday is definitely a day to practice pushing yourself away from the table, lest you overdo to the point of getting sick. Saturday’s Moon in Scorpio favors shopping with the help of a friend who makes it a fun expedition.

PISCESFeb. 18-March 19 – On Sunday, you are an example of someone who does not see himself clearly, and so your ambitions could be totally unrealistic. Monday is good for facing medical test results with a cool head. Thursday may not be lucky for romantic matters. Chiron goes direct in your sign this weekend, so do be aware of safety issues re handling the stuffing of your bird, and in storing leftovers.

Your Milky Way Horoscope May 26-June 1, 2013

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun at 5 degrees Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces at 6:27 am Sunday. This is such a problematic aspect because we fool (Neptune) ourselves (Sun) into thinking the situation is better or at least different than it really is. Hold off on any decisions until you have bounced your ideas off your fave sounding board. This aspect sometimes brings something we’ve denied out into the public eye. The Moon is also void for most of the day so adds to the futility of trying to start anything new. Stick to routine chores.
Mercury at 23 degrees Gemini is conjunct Jupiter at 3:56 am Monday. Mercury in good aspect to Jupiter is excellent for academic studies, although the conjunction could make your ideas or mental processes too fast to pin down. You may need a notebook or Dictaphone to capture your thought for later analysis. Also good for all hand-eye coordination whether in sports, art or crafts.
The major and minor benefics, Jupiter and Venus, are conjunct at 23 degrees Gemini at 3:29 pm Tuesday. (Mercury is only a half-step ahead of them.) One thing to watch out for is over-indulgence in food, and in sweets especially. You can really give yourself the mother of all belly aches with this aspect.
Mercury enters Cancer at 3:07 am Friday. Everybody seems to love Cancerians but Mercury here does have a downside (in immature natives) and that is that they can continually appeal to others’ sympathies in a way that expects indulgence. Mature Cancerians reach out to others with their intuitive emotional antennae (their silent communicators), and readily show they sympathize and care. Theirs is the warm shoulder to cry on, and the ever-ready cuppa tea, and the sage advice. They will not endlessly hold your hand, but they will soothe you until you can go out the door and face the world again.
Mercury in Cancer is good for scholars, historians, antique dealers, and lawyers who rely mostly on legal precedent. Famous people with Mercury in Cancer include: Nelson and David Rockefeller, pianist Van Cliburn, Igor Stravinsky, and educator Thomas Mann.
Mars enters Gemini at 6:39 am Friday. This Gemini is able to use words as a weapon, either in formal or informal debate, in politics, or academia, and the goal is to show that he has the sharpest and fastest mind. Reminds me of Cyrano de Bergerac, who created a rhyme as he dueled with his sword – demonstrating that his wit was as rapier-sharp as his sword, indeed. However in real life someone with this approach can win his battles but lose the war, as modern folks are less admiring of cleverness when it is so aggressive. A positive side to this placement is a real eagerness to learn. You may find lifelong students here.
Mars in Gemini can use words as a call to action, even tho the native may not be very active or athletic. Examples of that include Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Martin Luther King, Jr. Other famous people with this placement include: comedienne Phyllis Diller, Prince Philip, author Ernest Hemingway, Barbra Streisand, author Virginia Woolf, dictator Benito Mussolini, and painter Marc Chagall.
The Sun at 11 degrees Gemini sextiles Uranus in Aries at 9:46 pm Saturday. Sun-Uranus aspects almost always bring unusual people or foreigners into our lives in some way. We sit next to some very interesting people at a dinner or play, the company brings in a consultant who was born in another country and has the most fascinating accent, etc. We are exposed to those who live or think or talk very differently from ourselves, and that can be a real mind-opener.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 20-26, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun in Scorpio squares Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 3:42 pm Sunday. Hard aspects between Sun and Neptune generally make it difficult for us to see ourselves clearly; maybe we have some self-delusion we cling to and which leaves us vulnerable to unscrupulous sales people. So get a reality check before you write a check. With some of us, the Sun brings unwelcome publicity to things we would rather remained a deep, dark secret.
The Sun enters Sag at 11:08 am Tuesday. Happy birthday to all the little centaurs. Sun in Sag is optimistic (sometimes unrealistically so), has faith in the future, wants to be part of the big picture, and tends to inspire others with their optimism exuberance. Has the ability to be brilliant but rarely disciplines self long enough to really master anything. Loves the outdoors and the active life. This love of activity may also be expressed in careers in firefighting or other emergency services. Famous Centaurs include Mary Martin, Frank Sinatra, James Thurber, Walt Disney, Winston Churchill, Mark Twain, Joe DiMaggio, Charles de Gaulle, and siblings Caroline Kennedy and John F. Kennedy Jr.
Thanksgiving features a Scorpio moon for most of the day, presumably including sitting everyone down to the feast. Scorpio is most likely to actually host the family feast; the stuffing might include oysters, and the table have a crab salad. Scorpio lends a more spiritual mood to the day; we may be truly thankful to have everyone together. Black Friday features the Moon in Sag, appropriate for shoppers buying multiples of every item and probably overshooting their budgets.
However, bad news for merchants lies in the form of Mercury going retrograde early on Thursday (at 20 degrees of Sag). We usually enjoy a bit of boost from Mercury going direct sometime during the Christmas shopping season — and that is not in evidence this year as least not until Mercury goes direct on the night of Dec. 13. Merchants will be frantic to get shoppers to actually part with some money; I see heavy price slashing throughout the period. I might mention that there is a grass-roots movement to make Sat., Nov. 26 a “Buy Local” event. See Facebook for details about that at:
Venus in Sag sextiles Neptune at 28 degrees of Aquarius at 8:52 pm Thursday. We squint a bit at the ones we love and overlook their faults. Good for creativity and expressing universal ideals.
Venus is again active on Saturday night. She squares Uranus at zero degrees of Aries at 9:27 pm. I think I’ve warned you about the squares before. One can become entranced by foreigners or unusual people, generally to no avail as the parties repel each other as much as they attract each other. Any relationship is generally short-lived but enjoy it while it lasts, hon. And I speak from experience.
Venus enters hard-headed and practical Capricorn at 7:36 am Saturday. Venus in the sign of the goat is practical, a bit of social climber, and insists on quality goods. Can be very good at mastering etiquette at the highest levels of international protocol all the way down to the local club. Some have a gift for helping others see HOW to manifest their goals.
PS – I listed a few used astrology books for sale on Amazon Books; Part Two was posted July 1! **Includes a classic Alan Leo book** Look for reviews in my column with a link to the listing. Even more titles to come soon. Thanks for your support (and patience). Note that the Intuition book, listed in Part One, has sold.

Readers can follow not only their Sun sign horoscope but also the sign of their Ascendant for further clues to how your week will develop. Also 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 Time or Eastern Daylight Savings Time, depending on the season.

ARIES – March 20-April 19 – The solar eclipse in your solar ninth house may signal a long trip, or at least a breaking away from the mindset that you grew up with. Your consciousness may expand thru travel, reading, formal or informal study, or personal experiences. You may even have some kind of adventure, so keep a journal. The square to Mars may bring fevers, or new tools to use in your work. Mercury going retrograde in your solar ninth house may signal mixups in legal matters or having to redo everything with a new lawyer, book editor, or website.

TAURUS – April 20-May 20 – The solar eclipse in your solar eighth house accents your hidden talents as a practical alchemist, a healer, or a metaphysical master. You may help warring parties arrive at common values to heal their relationship. You may take up a sport, game or dancing. Mercury going retrograde in your solar eighth house may signal mixups in wills, joint accounts, or any pooled resources.

GEMINI – May 21-June 20 – The solar eclipse in your solar seventh house accents relationships and partnerships; the partner may be a foreigner or someone quite unusual. The importance of honoring commitments and contracts will be impressed on you, possibly in connection with work done on your home. Mercury going retrograde in your solar seventh house may signal mixups in public appearances or in communicating with your mate.

CANCER – June 21-July 22 – The solar eclipse in your solar sixth house activates your ability to help others realize a good mind-body balance. You may become more active, more outdoorsy, or even take a long trip. You may talk more about health matters, cars, sports, etc. Mercury going retrograde in your solar sixth house also accents the need to pay attention to health matters.

LEO – July 23-Aug. 22 – The solar eclipse in your solar fifth house accents your ability to teach people how to play, how to enjoy life, and how to express themselves creatively. At the same time you will need to avoid impulse spending that sabotages your budget. Mercury going retrograde in your solar fifth house may signal mixups in stage productions, having to start over with a creative project, or a child needing help in school.

VIRGO – Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo as the week begins, where it stays till Sunday night. Sunday morn you focus on feeling that your efforts are not appreciated, much less reciprocated. Instead, train loved ones to say thank you and please. The supper hour is very pleasant, possibly spent at a local restaurant. The solar eclipse in your solar fourth house activates your ability to help others get centered within themselves, the source of any real sense of security. You may also become much more focused on goals, like a samurai warrior. Mercury going retrograde in your solar fourth house may signal mixups with family members, or appliances going on the fritz.

LIBRA – Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 8:16 pm Sun.-Tues. night. Do not let your mate get your goat Sunday night; he is unsettled from the Uranus transit. Instead, try to calm and assure him. Monday morning resolve to master yourself no matter what before going in to work. You really are your own master, and you serve whom you will. A sibling may compliment you Tuesday. You may have to work to keep your mood up at times, but Tuesday pm may present a happy surprise. Treat yourself to a movie that night, with popcorn. The solar eclipse in your third house helps you keep things circulating; you may start to convey information to others that they need to know. Mercury going retrograde in your solar third house may signal mixups in every kind of communication, especially with siblings.

SCORPIO – Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 8:58 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. You may benefit from alternative medicine Tuesday night. Try not to go over the top about anything. A bit of friendly competition Wednesday morn gives you a boost. The holiday Thursday puts you in a spiritual mood. My only caveat is don’t indulge in foods/drinks you know you are sensitive to, no matter how gorgeous they look. A solar eclipse in your second house of money helps you manifest what you want — once you know what it is you want. Mercury going retrograde in your solar second house may signal errors in bank statements, or in balancing your account, or delays in crediting deposits.

SAGITTARIUS – Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 8:57 pm Thursday till Saturday night. You get a burst of that “Born to be Wild” energy Thursday night. You benefit from a New Moon at 2 degrees Sag at 1:10 am Friday. This is a Solar Eclipse, so note developments in the next several months, especially in relation to your search for truth. The eclipse features a square to Mars (you are forced to act, possibly in an aggressive manner) and a trine to Uranus (breaking free from societal boundaries).

CAPRICORN – Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 10:05 pm Saturday thru the weekend. The solar eclipse in your solar twelfth house helps you let go of trying to control the minutiae of others’ lives. You learn to listen to that quiet inner voice and achieve a measure of serenity. You may be forced to it, though, if your demands on others lead them to excommunicate you from their lives. You may take a crash course in something, or devour every book on a topic in your desire to know everything about it. Mercury going retrograde in your solar twelfth house may signal that it is you who shoots yourself in the foot with misstatements and errors in calculation.

AQUARIUS – Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The solar eclipse in your solar eleventh house may activate involvement in humanitarian organizations, as you help others realize their hopes for a better life. You can inspire, and your own efforts prod others to join in. You may be thrust into emergency situations and find out what you’re made of — and arriving at a renewed passion for life. Mercury going retrograde in your solar eleventh house may signal mixups re club meetings, lost minutes of prior meetings, or friends who have to cancel out of gatherings.

PISCES – Feb. 18-March 19 – The solar eclipse in your solar tenth house may activate involvement in community affairs ranging from the PTA to politics to the church to activism. Your inner rebel finds an outlet, but hopefully not in the form of tossing out your mate or other loved ones. Mercury going retrograde in your solar tenth house may signal mixups in career stuff like interviews that go badly, or glowing promises that are not carried out.

Your Milky Way Horoscope May 22-28, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun in Gemini (at almost 1 degree) squares Neptune in Pisces at 3:31 am Sunday morning (May 22). Most of us will be asleep, of course, so one interpretation is simply an active dream life. Another possibility is that people will wake up all fuzzy brained and this could last through their commutes, so be alert out there. Neptune in hard aspects to the Sun saps our energy and clouds our judgment. Best thing is to just relax by the pool, as Neptune is quite watery and having water nearby calms and restores us.
Venus is conjunct Mars at 8 degrees Taurus at 4:25 am Monday. NOTE This is a critical degree. You never really know what is going to happen but pay attention to the news today because whatever enters the scene will be something significant: a company’s public offering, a new player in global politics, etc. Venus-Mars conjunctions in natal charts give the native high energy; in a transiting chart it favors male-female relationships. In fact you may meet a lovely Other who brightens your life, but this aspect does not BY ITSELF guarantee any long-term quality to the match (although just the fact that it is in fixed-sign Taurus does tend to help it stick around a bit). This could be the start of something big, to quote the Steve Allen song.

Venus in Taurus is inconjunct Saturn at 10 degrees Libra at 2:47 pm Tuesday. Time to revise one’s budget to reduce expenditures yet again. Adapt to what is: the economy may be getting better but not very quickly, while inflation is on the prowl. And the usual spring gouge at the gas pumps is in progress as we speak, so people just have less disposable income. (This aspect was preceded by Mercury inconjunct Saturn on Monday morning. That was just to introduce some fresh data into the equation. It is then followed by Mars inconjunct Saturn, forcing us to take actions in accordance with our new budget, and to bend our wills to our new goals.)
The Sun in Gemini is inconjunct Pluto at 6 degrees Capricorn at 10:38 am Saturday, May 28. Now you really will be stared down by the seemingly unalterable Way Things Are in your life today, but at the same time you have an opportunity to reprogram yourself for a better future. You can only change yourself, when you come right down to it. You can design your own affirmations or look up the nifty stuff available online, or visit a practitioner who does GeoTrans or related kinesiology reprogramming.
I am posting astrology books for sale on Amazon this weekend. Just a couple titles for now to be followed by small batches as I get them posted, etc. Watch for my mini reviews and the links to the listings.
