Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 7-13

By Milky Way Maid

Sunday starts the week with not only Jupiter going direct but also squaring Mars. Looks like there will be a lot of people sorely tempted to take a risk, calculated or otherwise, on the week’s lotteries (or yesterday’s Big Lotto, Powerball etc.). This temptation will especially affect those with planets in the cardinal signs -- Aries, Libra where Mars is transiting, Capricorn where Jupiter is transiting, and Cancer (the nation’s sun sign). Natives of those signs will feel like digging in their heels to hang on in athletic competitions -- or try to turn friendly and workplace rivalries into races. Try to remember, people, cooperation allows everyone to win.

Venus is conjunct Mars on Thursday morning at 15 degrees Libra. On a personal level this is very energetic and sexy for couples to get together on a hot date. In the sales area, buyers are looking for distressed sellers so they can pick up whatever for a song and resell it later. Meanwhile, sellers could well take a loss; you may be better off just waiting. Other buyers may have to put their purchases on credit or take out loans. BTW Mercury is also conjunct Mars at midday Monday -- this is another opportunity for buyers to snap up distressed sale merchandise. There may also be more foreclosures or turnover of foreclosed properties. Mars is also the broker, the tax man and the assorted fees that reduce one’s net gain by selling.

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 - You are not directly involved in the Moon-Jupiter in Capricorn square to Mars-Venus in Libra -- but you sure feel the tension in the air. Your workplace and your spouse/partner may be directly affected, leaving you to try to carry on like normal. Arian salespersons may be quite busy taking orders from customers hurrying to buy before prices go back up -- and Arian stockbrokers may be processing sell orders from those taking profits. Either way you will be run ragged early in the week and likely to wish for Saturday to hurry.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - The Moon-Jupiter conjunction trines your sign from your solar ninth house in Capricorn. A breakthrough of sorts may develop at college, or in a legal or publishing venture -- especially with Venus-Mars-Mercury in Libra squaring that Jupiter. Projects related to health and labor issues may get a green light from publishers, or articles you authored may get some “link love”. Legal matters get resolved altho it may cost you in legal fees and fines.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Capricorn Moon-Jupiter conjunction occurs in your solar eighth house, favoring resolution of generational issues. Couples who have been trying to conceive may finally expect an addition to their family. Those who are not ready to start a family should probably find good protection.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Your home is always a welcoming place, but this week makes it an especially romantic love nest for you and your partner. The kids may introduce you to their prospective fiancees or have a special friend sleep over -- if your children are minors, make sure the house rules are clear. Additions to the extended family are likely. Also, the thought of having to shoulder wedding expenses may put a great deal of stress on you and your spouse. Probably you will be working harder and longer to save up for the big event but try to take care of yourself.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - You may get romantically involved with a neighbor or friend-of-a-friend or a co-worker’s relative. This will certainly make your life interesting, at least for the short term. This aspect’s energy can be difficult to sustain unless there are other, stronger bonds discovered and developed. In other matters, your energy is appreciated in organizing and manning a block rummage or other local event. You may emcee a fundraising auction or help publicize a community dinner or performance.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Business-persons of the Virgo persuasion should be very, very busy this week handling transactions in sales of all kinds. With luck, your personal business will realize a profit for you, but I cannot guarantee that. Jupiter conjuncts the Moon in your solar fifth house -- an addition to the family is one possibility. Another is finding an outlet for your creative expression of any and every kind, from playing music, writing, and painting to performance. Ideas bubble up faster than you can finish a project.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - It may seem that everyone is in love with you, but that is normal, isn’t it? With Venus, Mars and Mercury in your sign squaring the Moon-Jupiter conjunction in the solar fourth house of home and family, you may get news of an addition to the extended family -- or just splurge on freshening up the home d├ęcor. Another possibility is that a house you have been trying to sell finally finds a buyer - I am sure that will be a relief to you.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Jupiter conjuncts the Moon in Capricorn in your solar third house. A full inbox of orders to process and emails to send out. You collect your cut from fees and commissions as a broker, realtor, banker, insurer, etc. You are otherwise unconnected to all the hoopla and dashing about this week. You have, however, gained a more mature and realistic set of hopes and dreams for your future. Relax with your new electronic toys or comedy shows.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Moon is in your sign from Sunday thru Monday afternoon. It will feel harder than usual to crawl out of bed early for your morning run -- oh well, you can do some baby lifts while in front of the TV. There might be some problems with internet or other electronic gadgets that evening; if so, take the opportunity for a movie or art/music session. Monday favors research and detective work.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The Moon is in Capricorn from Monday afternoon till the wee hours of Thursday. You profit from high prices early in the week. Moon and Jupiter in Capricorn square Mars, Venus and Mercury. Hmm, buyers may be forced to pay higher prices plus higher taxes or other fees that reduce their proceeds. People may be buying because they expect prices to go still higher. You will certainly be busy with processing transfers or orders.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Moon is in your sign from the wee hours Thursday thru Saturday morn. The Venus-Mars conjunction trines your sign from your solar ninth house of law, college, publishing, and religion on Thurs.-Fri. The possibilities are that a legal matter may close with just a fine (and attorney fees) -- your book may be published but you pay for prep fees -- you meet an attractive person in your new fall classes -- or you suddenly develop a huge crush on Saint Clare. ;)

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Moon enters Pisces Saturday morn. You help the service clubs and non-profit or charitable organizations that you belong to get ready for another productive year by working on the agendas and fund-raiser plans. The weekend looks like a good one for any church rummage sales or other charitable drives. Parents have purged their children’s closets of outgrown clothes and are looking to fill gaps in both wardrobes and school equipment -- and that includes computers and other electronics.
