Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 24-30

By Milky Way Maid

Happy birthday to Virgo!
Your sign actually started Aug. 23, but this is the first full week that is all yours. You share your sign with a surprising number of famous dancers (as do Taurus, Libra, and Capricorn). Famous Virgo dancers include Gene Kelly, Agnes deMille, Marge Champion, Lola Falana, and Mitzi Gaynor. Virgo as an earth sign pushes off from the ground, and as a mutable sign, these natives usually master several different styles.
The biggest celestial action this week is that Mercury squares Pluto -- sounds like a good week for research and investigation -- even to the point of obsession -- and for printed news about any studies or scandals. Fields as varied as psychology, yoga, astrology and other occult topics are in the spotlight, or you may begin a study of one of these subjects. There is also the chance that someone may try to coerce (Pluto) you into thinking (Mercury) a certain way, or toe the party line. Tell them to back off and that you have some brain cells of your own. Oh dear, then Venus squares Pluto on Friday. This is often linked to romantic obsession of some kind -- like the fans who scale estate walls to mingle with a movie star’s party.
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 - Mercury and Venus enter your solar seventh house of partners (personal or business). You could meet a future partner or just enjoy a pleasant autumn with the one who already shares your life. Mars is already in Libra so this period may ignite a deeper passion. NOTE: Let me send a word to the wise about friends who may not have your best interests at heart; someone you think is a really good pal could have far too much influence over you and work to your disadvantage. Could be an Aquarian. Stick to your spouse and family.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - The New Moon Saturday is in Virgo, your solar fifth house of children and creativity. This gives your creative juices a burst of energy; it’s in an earth sign, too, so most likely your creativity takes a practical turn -- designing a kitchen that is more efficient and spacious, maybe inventing or adapting a bit of software, etc. Mercury, Venus and Mars in your solar sixth house of health and work should put your resume near the top of the heap, if looking for work, or mean more physical activity than you normally do.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Moon is in Gemini from last Saturday till Monday evening. Sunday morning you resent having to do some chores, but whatever has to be done, has to be done. There’s still time for play and fun in the afternoon. Monday will be a bit of a challenge trying to break out of a daydreaming mode and stay in the here and now. Getting the car started in the morning, or facing traffic on the way home, has you screaming for escape. And personal relationships seem very trying that evening -- but hold off making any snap decisions today because tomorrow is totally different and everyone’s emotional state will probably be back to normal. Oh, sometimes I think you rather enjoy the ups and downs.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Moon is in Cancer, its home, from Monday evening till Wed. evening. Monday night favors attendance at a neighborhood event or meeting; perhaps you will meet someone you know there. Tuesday morning’s work may have to be redone due to a change in plans. A happy surprise comes Wed. morning from one of your children. You finally reach a female relative Wed. night and enjoy a chat.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Moon is in Leo from Wed. evening till the wee hours Sat. Friday during the day favors any medical/surgical procedures, or meetings related to insurance/wills/taxes. Thursday morn a male neighbor or relative may ask you for advice or help. Friday night you manage to persuade one of your kids to do what you would have done. (Altho I gotta say, Leo, sometimes you have to let your kids make their own mistakes so they learn Mom or Dad was right when they said such-and-so.)

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - The Moon is in Virgo from the wee hours Sat. thru the weekend. Venus in Virgo inconjunct Neptune in Aquarius Sunday makes a very creative start to the week. Maybe you get inspired by a sunrise -- have a camera ready to capture whatever it is that gets your artistic juices flowing. The New Moon in your sign Saturday also gives you a boost; the Sun-Saturn conjunction widely trine Jupiter means your disciplined habits and orderly logic pay off over the next month.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Mercury enters Libra on Thursday; whew, maybe we could hope that the level of public discourse will become more civilized? That would be a blessing. On the personal level, your mail might become more polite, with apologies, compliments, invitations and more, making interaction with everyone much more pleasant. Have a friend or two over for tea, make peace with a neighbor by offering some fresh plum jam, do a favor for someone “just because”.
Venus will also enter your sign by the weekend. That accents the nice things coming to you -- ie the compliments and invitations. And going to the beautician for a new look could rev up your style for fall, even tho you always look quite ravishing and GORGEOUS all the time anyway.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - The New Moon occurs in your solar eleventh house of friends, hopes/wishes, groups. You start to reap the benefits of membership in organizations, especially if related to your career. Venus, Mercury and Mars all together in your very private twelfth house can bring kindness and support in your inner circle; god forbid that the twelfth house as “hospitals” is expressed here. Maybe you call on friends who are in the hospital or volunteer your time there?

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The New Moon in Virgo, your solar tenth house of career, gives a boost to your work life, especially with its trine to Jupiter in your second house of money. Lucky you. Venus, Mercury and Mars all in your solar eleventh house of friends and organizations makes your social life pretty busy this month. All in all this is a very good month shaping up in September.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The New Moon in Virgo falls in your solar ninth house of college, law, publishing and religion. Saturn there also trines Jupiter in Capricorn, suggesting that your studies will pay off; perhaps your thesis is suitable for a book. Venus, Mercury and Mars all have moved into Libra, your solar house of career. Perhaps a few perks come your way, or customers refer you to friends who become new customers of yours. Good word of mouth is always a great benefit to businesses that actually produce good work.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The New Moon falls in your solar eighth house of taxes, debt, wills, and generational issues. Saturn there trines Jupiter in your twelfth house; so I am going to say that this might not apply to you directly but to someone in your private circle -- like a birth in the family that happens to an adult child, or an in-law. It wouldn’t hurt to ask for partial forgiveness of a loan, either.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The New Moon in Virgo is opposite your Sun (or Ascendant). And Saturn in Virgo trines Jupiter in your solar eleventh house of friends & groups, which in turn sextiles Uranus in your sign. This New Moon could take two weeks to take effect, tho, as the Sun moves into a tighter aspect with the other planets -- but when it does, expect some happy surprises regarding friends and your partner. Maybe they throw a surprise party for you, maybe you run for an officer position with a club, etc.
