Your Milky Way Horoscope June 29-July 5 2008

By Milky Way Maid

Wednesday’s New Moon in the Cardinal sign of Cancer should be a firecracker event just in time for the Independence Day celebrations. The Sun and Venus cluster around the Moon, symbolizing how Cancer wants to draw her loved ones near. Be careful not to smother, tho, or you can easily drive away those you most love. Careful not to overindulge in ice cream or other comfort foods because they oppose Jupiter in Capricorn; a few bites should suffice and won‘t sidetrack your diet.

I just noticed that two Yods develop this week, making for what are sure to be fated events in the news. One is formed by Juno sextile Chiron, both inconjunct Venus in Cancer, who will be joined by the Moon midweek. The other is formed by Venus sextile Vesta, both inconjunct Juno in Sagittarius. Juno is involved in both, hmm. Venus at the apex of one suggests that prices of certain commodities she rules will be forced higher, like sugar, butter, cattle. Also I think that more health reports will come out about negative health effects of GMO foods or sugar in general. The other Yod involves women, the hearth-and-home, and housewife-career women. I am going to say that more women in particular will elect to telecommute or start their own businesses from home.

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.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 - Arians should enjoy a bounce off the New Moon in Cancer. It energizes your Fourth and Tenth Houses (home and work) so be ready to hand out your business cards to anyone who shows an interest in your field. The one cloud I see is that you may be racking up too much debt to finance a child’s college tuition. Ask your child to work on applying for scholarship money, and to work for at least some tuition money themselves. Also check into whether you can consolidate college loans at a lower rate of 3.6% with the federal govt. See story from MarketWatch at http://articles.moneycentral.msn.com/CollegeAndFamily/CutCollegeCosts/3Point6PercentStudentLoansConsolidateNow.aspx. Advisors may be had for free at the college or even at your bank.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - The asteroids Vesta and Pallas are in your sign this month. Vesta probably makes you stick close to home this month, practicing your yoga or otherwise working on spiritual development. Pallas is a take-charge kinda gal and a real mentor-teacher type. Have you been considering starting an at-home daycare service? You can add extra value if you also offer class time in arts or are certified in resuscitation or Montessori.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Moon is in your sign from early on the 30th till late Wed., July 2. Office ‘housekeeping’ may keep you busy Mon. morn, possibly it has something to do with a visit from an ergonomics consultant. Tues. morn however is more creative, with aspects between the Moon with Mercury to Jupiter and then squaring Uranus in the afternoon. Working with a master teacher all day can produce a greater insight and creative breakthrough. Your Mercury is also opposed to Juno in Sagittarius -- this may mean being on the receiving end of directives from your spouse or partner. He or she may have good ideas, etc. but you have to right to offer your own alternative solutions.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Wed. is the New Moon in Cancer and then the Moon sticks around in your sign till early Fri. A New Moon provides an opportunity to set down ideals on paper that you would like to manifest in your life. Cancer New Moon generally are related to family closeness, where members look out for each other while avoiding smothering. Having a home ‘base’ is also important to Cancerians, altho if necessary they can live out of a suitcase if they can bring certain props that make them feel at home. Venus is opposite Jupiter Wed. night; avoid too much sweets before bed especially. Venus is joined by the Moon, too, so work at limiting emotional eating. Thursday is productive if you make adjustments.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Moon is in your sign from early Friday thru Sunday morn. The Fourth will be full of showy bunting, flashy band costumes, great talent at the local parks, and the greatest fireworks ever. Creative pursuits Sat. morn are productive, especially in acting or technical areas. Are you involved in a local theatre troupe? Working on a comedy for local radio or TV broadcast should go well altho you may have to ad lib or make other changes on the fly. It’ll be fun, tho.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Your energies will be rather low till at least mid-July while Mars approaches conjunction with Saturn in your sign. Stick to routine, be extra careful with sharp objects, but do work out your frustrations on some kind of physical labor -- gardening seems ideal. Also engaging in creative expression if favored while Jupiter is in your fifth (solar) house of creativity, with Venus opposite (soon to be joined by the Sun) in the eleventh of friends and organizations. Maybe you get an opportunity to show your work through information passed along by a friend. Maybe a local non-profit is hosting a juried show. Put your work out there and see what happens.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - News of an organization’s collapse might hit you very hard; I am guessing that a friend is somehow affected and this is the cause of your distress. The asteroid Vesta is in your eighth house in Taurus, sextile Venus, squaring Chiron, trining Jupiter and inconjunct Juno. Venus is your ruling planet, it’s in your solar tenth house of career, so I am going to say that there is a chance you may go off to a seminar or some kind of executive retreat. Take advantage of any spa therapies available there. A neighbor or relative could take care of the house for you while you are away.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - The spouse may be off recharging his or her batteries without you. Get together with a friend to see a comedy -- the Moon is sextile Uranus the 29th, and Mercury square Uranus on the 5th suggests some wacky wordplay, and Venus trine Uranus on the 6th suggests a matinee to see a romantic comedy. Maybe your spouse will be back in time to see the last item. Your energies may be sapped by the approaching Mars-Saturn conjunction in Virgo, meaning don’t promise too many hours of volunteer time this month. Conserve your own energies first, and try to recruit some replacements for yourself.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Your energies at work may be sapped by the approaching Mars-Saturn conjunction; try to get some vacation time this month to go off and recharge your batteries. (Sun and Venus in Cancer suggests a family vacation by the beach or lake, or maybe a morning fishing trip with a young relative.) RE urgent family matters: Call a family conference if you feel it’s needed, but try not to dictate terms. We willing to accept others’ solutions on a trial basis and see which ones work best. This is a month of making adjustments to present reality for everyone.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - Things may have lightened up a bit now that Pluto backed up into Sagittarius again. The Moon trines Jupiter in your sign the morning of the 29th; have a family brunch at your house and treat them to rarely-made dishes. Mercury and the Moon are inconjunct your Jupiter Tues. morn; time to make adjustments, especially mental adjustments, to the present reality. Keep whatever tradition means the most to you and cut back on the rest; who really needs soda anyway? Make lemonade from concentrate and get some real Vit. C. Venus is opposite Jupiter Wed. late -- you’re feeling especially big-hearted towards all your children who have made you proud (PS - remember to tell them so).

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Moon conjunct Mercury in your solar fifth house of creativity trines Neptune in your sign. Write or journal something for your memoirs, something from your childhood. Gemini is activated now so you may get lots of messages or calls, too. Chiron in your sign is also making aspects to several other planets or asteroids -- Jupiter, Juno, Venus, Mercury, Vesta. I am going to posit that your chronic aches or ailments will see improvement if you visit practitioners; I am also guessing that your spouse will be the one to put you onto a good one.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Moon is trine your sign from early Wed. thru early Fri. Plus the New Moon is Wed. in your solar fifth house -- putting the accent on children and creativity for the month. Venus in your fifth solar house also opposes Jupiter Wed. night -- you’ll be in a good mood generally but not a good time to go shopping. You will blow your budget again and be too impressed by gloss and tinsel. The Moon trines Uranus Friday night -- sounds like a great time to go see a comedy. Don’t forget the popcorn…

(YES, this first week of July is posted a second time -- because the Blogspot does not automatically put weekly horoscopes in chronological order!)
