Your Milky Way Horoscope July 13-19

By Milky Way Maid

Happy Full Moon in Capricorn on Friday, July 18th -- the Moon will be at 26 degrees Capricorn at 4 am Eastern time. Maybe Happy is not the word to use, as Capricorn can be a rather stern sign. But be that as it may, Capricorns might try to get their satisfaction not from running other peoples’ lives but by teaching them your life management skills. You know the old saying -- give someone a fish and they eat for a day, teach someone to fish and they eat the rest of their lives? Well Cappy is very good at managing home and career, and they can teach the rest of the world how to ‘hack life’, as they say, to garner all that life has to offer them. Just tell me how to enroll in your classes, Cappy.
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 - Pallas and Vesta in your second house of funds are a very good sign that your wallet keeps getting refilled. People do business with you because you obviously know your subject, and your services are something people need anyway. I am guessing you are in a home-related field, am I right? Whatever it is, work is booming even in a tight economy. One caution: your energies are being sapped by keeping irregular hours and working very hard. Take care of yourself, too, and eat a wholesome low-glycemic diet.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - - Vesta and Pallas are in your sun sign, a great boon for you if you are in any kind of consulting or problem-fixing roles. Communicate what you know; offer some tips in a personal webpage or e-newsletter, or even consider writing a book. Saturn and Mars moving into your solar fifth house of creativity really put a damper on having fun. Maybe funds for nights out have vanished; you can still find DVDs to borrow from the library, or offer to bring your luscious home-made treats along to a friend’s house on movie night.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Uranus in your solar tenth house of career implies that work may be sporadic or part-time, but your second house is very busy because Mercury, the Sun and Ceres are there. This suggests that you may have to work more than one job to keep things afloat this month; maybe you are babysitting or coaching on the weekends, or merchandising or secret-shopping for extra money. Make some hay now while you can. Mars and Saturn have moved into your solar fourth house of home; have you bought a bigger house than you could afford, or been forced to lose one in foreclosure? I’m sorry if you have, but rest assured you are hardly alone in that. You will be juggling a lot of jobs and bills to keep your current home, but if anyone can pull it off, a multi-tasking Gemini can.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Sun in Cancer trines Uranus in Pisces on midday Monday. You’re a bit restless today and drawn by humorous, offbeat or novel studies; possibly you pick up a book on a New Age topic. Mercury in your sign opposes Jupiter in Capricorn on Saturday afternoon - business dealings should go well, altho there’s 2 caveats: avoid arrogance, and always check the fine print. You could get that hard-to-sell customer if you just relax a bit and concede that it is, in the end, the customer’s decision.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Moon trines Venus in your sign Sunday morn; one of your kids might offer to take you out for brunch today, or stops in with a little gift. Saturday is really pretty fortunate. It starts off with a loving exchange with your spouse or life partner. And later that day, you could have a positive experience with a new or alternative health practitioner; not meaning to raise your expectations too high, you understand, but if you keep with this person and try to learn more about getting back in balance, you can achieve better health.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Mercury is sextile Mars-Saturn in Virgo the first half of the week - You may try to convert someone to your point of view; a good time to give a presentation or chair a meeting. Your energy also might be put to good use attending to details at work. The Moon trines your Mars-Saturn on Wed. afternoon - You have the energy and stamina to plow thru big projects. It is also a good time to consult with an older person (mentor, dad, grandfather, professor) about career or personal matters.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Venus enters your solar eleventh house of friends and groups - A new friend joins your circle, possibly a young woman with a flair for color and fashion. Ask where she got a dress or scarf, and maybe she will share her fashion secrets. Your creative fifth house shows you achieving a high point in your artistic expression, especially if can draw upon the painful experiences you have had, as well as the good times. Do take care not to overwork, and give yourself a chance to recharge your batteries.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Uranus in your fifth house of creativity and fun is getting a trine from the Moon on Monday - look into taking an art or crafts class, take in a comedy film, or just visit a different part of town to satisfy your need for something outside the humdrum. Jupiter in Capricorn opposes Ceres in Cancer this month - you could luck out with a great harvest in the home garden, or neighbors foist their surplus on you. That’s OK, you can always freeze chopped tomatoes for winter soups and chili. The one downer this month is that friends and groups lean on you too much and try to tell you what to do, or don‘t thank you for your help; no one needs that. You tell them that you don’t mind helping but you expect it to be a two-way street.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Sun is in your sign from early Sunday thru Tuesday evening. The Moon trines Venus in Leo in your solar fifth house - take the opportunity to take pictures of your kids next to the riotous garden flowers, either in your yard or in a local park; capture the beauty of the day. Moon squares Saturn late that night; maybe you’ll finally clean out that junk drawer-closet-files. You’ll try to get an early start on work Monday morn but probably run out of steam; the afternoon is better, especially if you turn to the internet for more information. Tuesday is pretty hectic so be prepared to dash around; try not to misplace your keys.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The Moon is in your sign from Tuesday evening thru midday Friday. Wednesday is a great day to get a lot done; your stamina is great and you stick to the task. Thursday morn the Moon conjuncts Jupiter in your sign; generally this just produces a feeling of well-being and confidence, which you have in abundance anyway. A friend may have a pleasant surprise for you that evening. See above message about the Full Moon in Capricorn on Friday. Saturday afternoon is good for business dealings but only if you avoid sounding arrogant.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Moon is in your sign from midday Friday thru the weekend. You may decide at long last to adjust your investments Friday; make sure this is a rational decision and in keeping with established goals and guidelines you made when you started the fund. Saturday is really pretty fortunate. It starts off with a loving exchange with your spouse or life partner. And later that day, you could have a positive experience with a new or alternative health practitioner; not meaning to raise your expectations too high, you understand, but if you keep with this person and try to learn more about getting back in balance, you can achieve better health.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Sun trines Uranus in Pisces on Monday; possibly one of the kids treats you to a surprise or takes you out to dinner. Possibly you have been doing babysitting duties and this is your tip; don’t let on that you would do the job for free. The one bad influence is maybe you have been sleeping too late, or not getting regular sleep; set a normal schedule and get up even if you don’t feel like you got enough sleep. Check the library card catalog for good books about the subject; there are lots of good tips out there.
