Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 16-22

By Milky Way Maid
Mars enters Sagittarius on Sunday Nov. 16, adding a real spark of energy and rivalry to the national sports events. Interest should hit some new highs in in teams with a following all over the country. Mars can be quite argumentative, tho, and the public discourse can see more active discussions (OK, arguments) about Sag subjects like religion, law, publishing (copyright?) and higher education. A big scandal could be brewing, too, in any of those fields. Could we possibly see an overhaul of college tuition loans? Could colleges be forced to peel back their fees to something more in line with future earnings of the graduates?

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 - Monday could bring an introduction to a very interesting take-charge lady at work -- signified by Venus conjunct the asteroid Juno. A future spouse, perhaps, for a single Aries? At any rate, she will be a real ball of fire -- no mere paper-shuffler -- and she will be just what the old place needs. Both the Sun and Mars are in your solar eighth house, and will conjoin at the end of the month. Make plans now for a nice weekend getaway during the Thanksgiving holiday to recharge your batteries and/or spend some quality time with family and mate.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Vesta in your sign trines Ceres in its home of Virgo and Venus-Juno conjunct in Capricorn. You earth signs will all be busy cooking and baking your trademark holiday treats, but Virgo brings more concern with healthful ingredients. Some of you may even trade or gift food items, and this is a great way to spread your talents outside your own tiny family circle. Look for a national contest where you can enter your cookie recipe; be able to show how you have substituted healthier ingredients with no loss of flavor, or how you enhance flavor with an unusual technique. Friends contribute insights and tips for cooking or just “hacking life”.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - You have become quite the go-to person for information, and you can whip through a whole spiel in nothing flat. Jupiter is inconjunct Pallas Athena in your sign; if you can apply your factual knowledge creatively to solve problems, an abundance of options will open up for you. In fact, some opportunity might just fall into your lap before you know it, so keep an eye peeled, an ear open, and your Twitter and IM open.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Moon is in Cancer from the previous Sat. till Mon. afternoon. The Moon trines Uranus and then opposes Jupiter on Sunday evening, suggesting that you finds lots of enjoyable stuff on the Internet but then blow your holiday budget shopping. Just take note of model numbers or brand names and then shop around locally when the sales flyers come out. The Moon trines Mercury late, so try to get hold of people late that evening and ask what kinds of things the grandkids need, what sizes, etc. Monday morning you are in good spirits early; maybe you hear a witty morning radio show driving in to work, or the web has good reviews of movies to see or avoid, as the case may be.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Moon is in Leo from Mon. afternoon till early Wed. evening. Monday morn has a trine between the Moon and Mars right away; everybody stand back while you rush out the door. Please slow down enough to watch for traffic going home, because a Neptune aspect is making some other folks a bit fuzzy-headed (6:30 pm Eastern) and they may not see you coming. Tuesday is a difficult day, sorry, let’s call it a challenging day. You will likely be called upon to solve problems or make adjustments for everything from cash flow to software to repairing machinery. Wed. is less creative, probably, but with more conflicts with a stubborn Scorpio.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - The Moon is in Virgo from early Wed. evening till the wee hours Sat. The Moon first makes a square to Mars in Sag on Wed. evening -- you could get off to a big start on something and then lose interest or get tired out. It can also bring a tiff with a family member. Thurs. midday brings a trine to Venus in Capricorn; a daughter can be a real boon to you, and even take charge of a matter that has you stymied. Friday brings multiple aspects but the big one is the Jupiter is exactly trine Saturn. Unfortunately, your Moon is conjunct the Saturn side, but at least that keeps you level-headed and conscientious. You could miss the opportunities might in front of you tho, so lift up your gaze occasionally.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - The Moon is in Libra from the wee hours Sat. thru the weekend. The Moon sextiles Pluto and then Mars in Sag on Sat. morn, adding fun and energy to local events or neighborly visits. This might mean that local sporting events could generate great interest and enthusiasm, and/or neighbors and relatives join in a spirited pickup game. Next Sunday will be very mixed, and you meet obstacles (perhaps on an art or craft project), have to improvise around them, run into other complications, have to ask an expert or consult the wiz family member, etc.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Mercury and the Sun are in your sign. Mercury sextiles Jupiter in Capricorn and both are inconjunct Pallas in Gemini, so get in touch with a neighbor or relative, and call up a Gemini maven to figure out how to solve a problem of yours. Also the Moon squares your Sun and Mercury on Wed. morning, which may mean a bit of a conflict with a boss or supervisor. Make sure you did not misunderstand anything, and that your comments are not misconstrued as something you did not mean!

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Mars enters your sign this Sunday in the wee hours; you could wake up raring to dash out the door for a run or hike. But make sure to do those warmup and stretching moves first, or you could be out for the season with a walking cast. The Sun enters your sign Friday afternoon; your happy-go-lucky mood is back. And lastly, Mercury also enters your sign Sat., which tends to bring more calls, emails, and other messages with it. Everyone wants to have their holiday party with you.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - Mercury sextiles Jupiter in your sign on Sunday morning. This favors any mental activity, but actually just chatting with a friend is the most likely avenue of useful information (Mercury is in your solar eleventh house of friends and groups). Email or call if you cannot visit each other in person. That evening is not so harmonious with your significant other, as the Moon opposes the same Jupiter. Make nice with the spouse, let her make the decisions -- you want some peace, right? Venus and Juno have entered your sign and are conjunct Monday; boss ladies take the reins and everything will get done to perfection. In other words, just get out of their way.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - Monday afternoon or evening is not favored for trying to think your way thru a problem or balance your checkbook; have someone look at your work or bounce ideas off another person. A solution to a problem from Wed. comes to you Friday morning; it requires a bit of flexibility and creativity on the part of all concerned, so you might have to do a bit of a selling job to get cooperation.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Conflict may be brewing with a family member, and it may actually have you quite upset. But a little mutual respect goes a long way toward resolving differences. Meanwhile, Virgo and Capricorn spouses and friends put together some terrific plans for the holidays for all concerned. You can contribute by collecting some good jokes to tell and practicing delivering them in front of the mirror. (Psst, but don’t tell any jokes at the expense of anyone else!)
