Your Milky Way Horoscope July 20-26

By Milky Way Maid

Mars in Virgo trines Jupiter in Capricorn this Saturday evening. The whole week may be powered by this energetic combination, especially by Virgo and Capricorn natives. Your physical energies will be strong, your decision-making abilities accented, and a desire for risk and games of chance may lead you to the poker table or casino. It is so rare for Virgo to bet on anything, and Capricorn doesn’t believe in luck but in hard work. So I have a hard time picturing either of them at the craps table. But Virgo might be persuaded to wager a buck on a charitable drawing, and Cappy might just bet a round of drinks on the outcome of a sporting event.
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 - The Moon is in Aries from the wee hours Wed. thru early Friday. Your energies are always high but with Mars in your solar sixth house of health, trining Jupiter, you could feel particularly eager for a game of touch football or other games. You could make the winning goal, but quit while you are ahead. It can also mean that something that has been your avocation could turn into your vocation. You might need the advice of a national firm to bring this dream into reality; at least check with local mentors or chamber of commerce members for advice.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - The Moon enters Taurus from Friday morning thru Sun. midday. The asteroid Vesta in your sign trines Saturn in Virgo -- one possibility is sticking close to home to work on projects to improve your comfort or health. Also you might read or take a class in proper diet; I recommend looking up the Glycemic Index guide to weight loss. The luxury of taking time off from work this month appeals to you a great deal. I see you eager to put up your garden produce and babysit grandkids or any number of things. Maybe if you win that Mars-Jupiter lottery this week, that dream will come true.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Events may happen lightning fast this week at work -- Uranus in your solar tenth house of career is being aspected by the Moon and Mercury. Everyone’s summer vacation plans have been scaled down this year, and probably yours are no exception. But I feel that a short getaway to a place you have been before will be very beneficial and fun. Your spouse or partner will be very energetic and may take the lead in planning your weekend getaway. Take the opportunity to visit relatives and neighbors; they have missed seeing you and you have so much to catch up on.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Mercury transiting your sign trines Uranus in Pisces Tues. afternoon. You are mentally eager to learn and meet news kinds of people. Go somewhere you haven’t been before, or enroll in a class in anything from computers, tech, science, math, or engineering to astrology. Cancerians are great students because it seems like they never forget a thing once they have learned it. Your favorite vacation idea is just lounging or swimming in your own pool, but the local park is almost as good. Being near water recharges your batteries.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Sun enter Leo early Tuesday morn -- 6:55 am Eastern time. Rise and shine, Leo, the Sun came out to say happy birthday to you. No hard or stressful aspects today, so it sounds like a good day to spend at the beach or lazing around. Some Leos might find they have unusual skills this year, or meet someone who you’d swear was your twin soul separated at birth. Jupiter in your solar sixth house of health says your health and energy will be high, but take care not to overdo at the dinner table.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Mars in your sign trines Jupiter this week, so you might fee just a wee bit lucky. Perhaps you’ll bet someone that a quotation came from the Bible not Shakespeare, and you’d be right. But if you decide to go along to a casino night, it’s OK Virgo, really. You’ve worked hard, you deserve some time out. Jupiter is transiting your solar fifth house of fun, gambling, sports, children and ‘flings’. I can’t see you suddenly wagering thousands on a throw of the dice, but maybe the office pool on the ball game will produce a winning ticket for you.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - The Moon-Uranus conjunction in your sixth house of health may mean that you get terribly upset about some news or personal discussion. Take the opportunity to learn how to manage stress with massage, yoga, aromatherapy, or even brushing your hair! In fact, other transits show you might benefit from visiting a day spa or consultant in the allied health fields for ideas on how to best manage your health, stress, and diet.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Your spouse or partner is learning more about self-care skills, possibly even studying for a license in massage or related fields. Show an interest in his or her growing skills; ask for mini-treatments and spread the word about it. You may get news of a windfall when Mercury trines Uranus Tuesday afternoon. Those planets are making an aspect from your solar fifth house of games/gambling to your ninth house of national or world events, so maybe an office pool on a league game will come up in your favor. The Sun enters your solar tenth house, and with Venus already there, you should get a slice of the spotlight this month.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Mars-Saturn trine from your solar tenth house of career to your solar second house of money implies that you will take some risk in your career. Maybe you want to branch out on your own or expand the office. But I think that long-term, over the course of the next year or two, that sudden events can put the prospects for success in peril. Asteroids transiting your solar sixth house of health urge you to explore spa or related health practices.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - You’re not really much of a gambler, but you do bet on yourself. You have invested in your own education, cultivated experienced mentors, and put yourself on the line. So now with Jupiter in your sign trining Mars, you may feel even more like taking calculated risks in putting your work or your product out there on the market. If it’s a seasonal or test item, fine, but longer term, I would say that rolling out a new item should wait till after Aug. 10. That way you avoid a killer opposition to Uranus.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - Somehow you represent the future to a lot of people. OK, you are open-minded, eager to find new solutions to problems, and you put out the welcome mat to peaceful uses of technology. Meanwhile you still have to take care of your old-fashioned, analog body and that might mean looking into low-cost traditional practices like a sauna or whirlpool. Your spouse or partner is looking particularly lovely and vivacious this month; remember to tell her (or him) how glad you are that you met.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Moon is in Pisces from late July 20 thru the wee hours Wed. On Tues. the Moon will conjunct Uranus in your sign -- PLUS it is trine Mercury in Cancer. You could get upset about some news at first, but I think you will brainstorm on how to work around it. You may even get create a new plan. If you have concerns about going into business for yourself, talk to a local mentor or chamber of commerce group. They have loads of good tips on what you need to do. Friends may be lucky this week, have you complimented them lately?
