Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 9-15

By Milky Way Maid

A Full Moon in Taurus, the sign of its exaltation, is gifted us on Thursday, Nov. 13, at 1:17 am Eastern at 21 degrees 15 minutes of Taurus. This is a good moon for practical matters, but also for harvesting the earth’s bounty after a hard summer’s labor to make this happen. Give thanks to the earth and the grace of your god that you were able to bring in this harvest -- either a literal or figurative harvest, we’re not picky here. Since Taurus is also the sign of singers, it might be appropriate to sing on this day. Any song will do, but preferably something that raises your spirits.

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 midday Sunday till early afternoon Tuesday, Veterans Day. Monday morning sees changes made in wills or other papers concerning legacies and insurance. The evening has two interesting aspects from the Moon to Sun in Scorpio and to Saturn in Virgo. This can favor creative projects but also brings a fated quality, too; you can win a contest or award that seems out of reach. On Tuesday, your Moon trines first Venus then Pluto; this favors reaching down deep for your best effort. It also focuses attention on generational matters like wills, again, but also adding to the family. A new child or grandchild grows the family tree. Also a good time to socialize from 8 pm Eastern till Moon enters Taurus.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - The Moon is in Taurus from midday Tuesday till midday Thursday. The Moon trines Jupiter and sextiles Uranus Wed. night; look for a modest but nice windfall. Thursday brings a Full Moon in Taurus, sensual and comfortable (see general note above). The Moon also opposes Mars and squares Neptune, making for a difficult day if you try to force issues with someone who would rather not discuss it. Think about how serious is the issue and decide matters accordingly.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Moon is in Gemini from midday Thursday till midday Saturday. Friday afternoon, you may try to talk with someone who is normally pretty close-mouthed, and square away any misunderstandings you may have. The day can also bring an upset with regard to work or a parent, so make sure that you accurately understand what the other party is saying. The evening’s trine to Neptune favors a night at the movies or listening to music. Saturday opens with a chance to clear things up with (or swap chores with) a significant other.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Monday may be your most significant day with transiting Sun in Scorpio trining Uranus in Pisces; all you water signs probably have a great time planned. The aspect affects your solar fifth and ninth houses, so either you or your children may be signing up for college courses, possibly in artistic fields. Your spouse, too, may be going to classes. Meanwhile, I hope you are not languishing in an empty nest; indulge in your own hobbies and interests. Even if that only means going to the library.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - Your solar fourth house of home and family is quite active, with Mercury, Sun and Mars all bunking there for the time being. Aspects to Uranus in Pisces may bring a surprise announcement about an addition to the family, whether by marriage or birth or even adoption. The Full Moon in Taurus activates your tenth house of career, although it can also bring tensions with family and spouse because of job demands. How much are you willing to sacrifice and compromise, while maintaining your values? And what are your real values anyway?

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Mercury acts as messenger between your Saturn and with Jupiter in Capricorn. This can mean anything from A) a relative carries messages to a prospective beau, to B) a neighbor (or neighborhood party) is a fun occasion to circulate and try new things. Don’t be a spoilsport and go. The Full Moon in Taurus activates your solar ninth house of law, college, publishing and religion. Matters related to those fields will come to the front burner, but don’t expect easy solutions. An absent person can make it difficult to decide what your new plans should be, and I cannot offer any quick fix for that. But do not make the mistake of going behind that person’s back and deciding anything for him. You’ll regret that!

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Libra is always a bit sad when the last leaves fall and end Mother Nature’s spectacular show. Time to hit the library, one of your fave places, and dig up some lovely new titles to read while curled in front of the fire. Librans also enjoy museums and galleries, so check the listings for free admission times and other public events. Your ruler Venus is getting hot and heavy with Pluto, then dashing into Capricorn. I think she has relationship issues, or maybe just likes being a career girl (or being with a career man), but at any rate you prefer a happy ending with a big wedding and lots of flowers. Rent a Julia Roberts movie for that.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - - Busy, busy Scorpio in the fall, especially with the Full Moon in your opposite sign Taurus. It can feel like things are coming to a head, with this T-square between the personal planets Mercury, Sun and Mars in Scorpio, Moon and Vesta in Taurus, and Neptune in Aquarius. That usually means that things are expressed thru the fourth, empty leg -- Leo in this case. Or in your case, your solar tenth house of career and reputation. You may have to really work to get an interview, or put a huge effort into a juried show (but wind up winning a prize); in other words, nothing will be handed to you but you can make a great impression nevertheless.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Saggy, Venus is leaving you this week to take up with her next beau, Cappy. She’s looking for security, Sag, something you don’t understand and can’t give her. Let her go. Meanwhile your money house and career are on an upswing, as Jupiter and Saturn hold a trine aspect. You work hard but the money is pretty good. Uranus in the fourth house is nagging at you tho; maybe you don’t know if the house you rent will be repossessed or what. Hang in there because after this month the issue will ease off.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - Venus enters dour and somber Capricorn on Wednesday, which probably doesn’t make Venus too happy. But she was spending too much money in Sag, so now Cappy is cracking down, putting her on an allowance. Sometimes a lonely Cappy will happily be her little sugar daddy, and if that’s OK with you then it’s OK with me. That Full Moon in Taurus, your solar fifth house, also fits the theme of blossoming romance or at least fun n games.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Taurus Full Moon is in your solar fourth house. The accent is on your home and family for the next fortnight at least. A Taurus full moon is a wonderful, warm nurturing moon, one that takes care of the family’s material needs and comforts. It’s the soup that warms you, and the backrub after raking leaves all morning. It is also possible that you may buy a new home, or make adjustments on your existing loan.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Pisces welcomes the Taurus Full Moon in her solar third house of communications, relatives and neighbors. She likes putting together the plans for the upcoming holidays, who brings what. She likes putting together the agenda of local holiday events to attend, and who to invite along. And she likes finding the great local bakery that makes the special holiday treats, the local flower shop that carries the best and most unusual holiday greenery, and the regional wineries with their unique varietals for your family banquets.
