Your Milky Way Horoscope May 4-10, 2008

By Milky Way Maid

So much is going on this week - tons of messages, many of which are quite emotional - many people have gotten happy surprises and I don’t mean just the stimulus checks - and while Venus and Mercury are not close to making a deal they are at least talking at the local coffee shop. Heavy-duty events are in the offing, too, with Saturn and Pluto trining each other in Earth signs; banking and other large corporations will be exacting more fees and laying out more gotchas for the hapless uninformed consumer, and they will do everything they can to keep the news out of the media.

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 - Early Arians have felt really pressured lately with Pluto having entered Capricorn and Saturn into Virgo. Saturn in your solar house of work, and Pluto at the Midheaven sound like a real taskmaster is dictating your job situation. On the other hand, you are called upon to make a creative contribution more than ever before. You can at least breathe a sigh of relief that you are seeing the last of Mars in your Fourth House of the home; perhaps you will get mortgage help.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - - The New Moon in your sign Monday (after the Moon enters Taurus Sunday morn) gives you a real boost. Sunday the Moon trines the other earth sign planets Pluto and Saturn. If you are kicking off a big project, it should do well short term, but the longer progressions will be very challenging. Make sure you have the best advisors and a Plan B to fall back on. Happy Cinco de Mayo!

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Moon enters your sign early Tuesday, about 7 am Eastern, and lingers till dawn Thursday. Tuesday morn you are in an analytical state of mind, able to dig for details and throw out the irrelevant. You will probably be unusually quiet, at least until supper hour when you and your family share your day. Wednesday afternoon is good for alternative healthcare such as acupuncture. Wind down with some low-impact yoga. Seek a creative outlet that evening such as painting, photography or music.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Moon, your ruler, is in your sign from dawn Thursday thru dawn Saturday. Thursday is a bit somber; maybe your work is related to expressing a legacy from your mother; a tribute piece, perhaps. The Jupiter station in Capricorn Friday morn is a boon for partnerships and social organizations. Try not to overdo if celebrating, but a night on the town can be very memorable. Mars is in the last degrees of your sign, meaning you could be tempted to really acquire you own little real estate empire - just be sure it is not a white elephant.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Moon-Mercury conjunction Tuesday in your house of friends and groups should bring a bundle of activity in in any clubs you belong to. Of course you like to run the show yourself, like the natural impresario you are. Plus Sun-Venus in your house of career matters should put you in the spotlight, right where you love to be. The only caution is a long-term one inre your health -- hope you have learned the moderation lesson.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Going back to school? Delving into religious or philosophical questions? Publishing your own book? Any of these areas is on your mind now, and possibly a partnership or trio is involved in any related project like publishing your book. Writing, editing and public appearances are filling your agenda this week, especially Tuesday.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Another meaning of the Jupiter-Uranus sextile (from the fourth to the sixth house) is that working from your home office, or telecommuting, are very auspicious for you. You will enjoy having an extra measure of freedom and you sure appreciate avoiding the commute. Libras are a cardinal sign (along with Cancer, Capricorn and Aries) which means you do not dither around when it comes to getting what you want.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Your significant other or business partner is more than willing to swap favors with you this month. Money luck is related to communications and creative projects; do you have a book about ready to submit? Then get the right manuscript software and whip it into shape. Possibly you are also re-enrolling in a local college; seek out professors for tips and referrals on editing help.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Pluto entering your second house of resources will radically revamp your economic picture over the long term. Seek advice on where to park your money safely. Sag’s biggest problem is that they don’t buy just one of something; when they see a great deal on sweaters, for example, they buy one in every color. That kind of excess will have to become a fond memory, but you can always splurge on office supplies like pens(?).

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - You swore to reinvent yourself and now you are taking a self-inventory to decide what to keep and what to build on. Probably you’ve decided the flab around your waist has to go, as well as the mental flab. Challenge yourself with a new mind-stretching game, and a stretching routine before and after work. Your brain cells will tingle with fresh energy. In other news, your speaking engagements are popular, witty, and fun.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - An aspect from Venus to transiting Neptune in your sign has been activating your creative energies; take your camera along on outings, or enroll in a painting or music course. Next week the Sun will square that Neptune, which could make for some dumb decisions. Consult with certified advisors now and rely on their best advice. The long-term semi-sextile between Neptune and Uranus has brought a wealth of small pleasures like boon companions and electronic toys to play with.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Early Pisceans will have the phone ringing off the hook this week; lots of messages coming and going so budget email time and send acknowledgements of receipt. Saturn opposing has brought unusual discipline to you. Middle Pisceans should have a great time with relatives or neighbors at local events or the park. You might even organize a block party to help everyone get to know each other better.
