Your Milky Way Horoscope April 19-25

By Milky Way Maid

Happy Birthday to all those of the Taurus persuasion. Famous Taureans include dancers Fred Astaire, ballerina Margot Fonteyn, singer Barbra Streisand, child star Shirley Temple, and countless other singers, dancers, composers, and musicians.
Venus and Mars have a date in Pisces on Tuesday night before dashing into Aries. Presumably they will drink too much wine and not remember what happened.
Venus enters Aries on Friday at 3:18 am Eastern for a six week visit. Fire signs can all benefit from trying a new look, visiting the salon for a new hairstyle, adding something red to the wardrobe, and in general putting your face in front of anyone you are interested in. You were voted most likely to put in a full day of errands and projects before sitting down with the cake and ice cream.
Mars precedes Venus into Aries, entering on Wednesday at 9:44 am Eastern for a five week visit. So the fire signs will get a double dose of celestial energy, and don't be surprised if all the Arians, Leos and Sags you know are bouncing around like basketballs and chattering about some new 'someone' they met. Mars also can be difficult to express in a healthy way, so impatience, small accidents, blurting out inconvenient truths, and arguments can be frequent during this time.
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 Sun is in Aries from Wednesday morn till midday Friday. Wednesday afternoon may feature conflicts with the boss due to a Moon square Pluto in your solar tenth house of career; at best it can mean digging for the source of a problem or auditing books. Thursday favors physical therapy sessions. Venus enters Aries on Friday at 3:18 am Eastern; time to spruce up and visit the salon for a great new look (and maybe add something red to your wardrobe, too).

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon in Pisces sextiles the Sun in your sign late Sunday night; check messages from friends or groups for meeting agendas. Monday evening the Sun in Taurus trines Chiron in Virgo in your solar fifth house; Chiron suggests that artistic outlets will be therapeutic for you. This includes painting, piano, song, dance. On Wednesday night Mercury in Taurus squares Jupiter in Aquarius, helping you dream big, altho details elude you. Sun in Taurus trines Pluto in your solar ninth house early Thursday; this is a good day to begin a course of study, and your investigative powers are high. The Moon is in Taurus from midday Friday till the following Sunday afternoon. Saturday is better spent working on chores, then take time in the evening to use someone as a sounding board to clarify your thoughts.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Mars and Venus enter your solar eleventh house this week. You will have great fun organizing a birthday party for a friend, perhaps several friends this month. Also I think you will spend many productive hours with clubs and other organizations (solar eleventh house) you belong to; they will be a boon (Venus) to you in professional and personal life. Feng shui: place a prism or hanging crystal (and a phone) in your 'helpful people' corner for beneficial relationships.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Juno in Pisces is trine Pallas in Cancer; Since it is in your solar ninth house, it is likely that a strong woman will play a key role in your education and possibly act as a mentor-type. There is also a slight chance that you may become seriously involved with a staff or faculty member. Tues-Wed may be your best period this week with all those watery conjunctions between Moon, Venus, Mars in your ninth house; all I can say is if you have a book ready to show a publisher, go for it. The Moon square Pluto on Wednesday afternoon may catch you in the crossfire; you might have to go into 'soothe' mode.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Mars and Venus enter Aries, your solar ninth house this week. Expect lots happening in fields of law, higher education, publishing or even religion. You may meet an agent or editor who makes a big difference in your book project, or a mentor-type who guides you onto a higher path. You are great at doing readings of your books or plays, so I am sure you will have no problem booking dates for such promo events.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mars inters Aries, your solar eighth house of debt. This may bring an unplanned expense that you are forced to put on credit, especially since it is square Pluto, another indicator of a debt or tax. There is also the possibility that a baby may enlarge your household. The Sun-Pluto trine in the other earth signs Wed-Thurs also brings a boon to you if you are producing some physical product, whether it is a knickknack or office software or a even a movie.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Mars enters your solar seventh house, Aries, and this often brings a new male into your life; not necessarily a romantic object, but perhaps someone at work or wherever. Mars will square Pluto in your fourth house so do not stoke the fire of jealousy. Venus also enters the seventh so make a point of a weekly date with hubby, or at least candles at a romantic dinner table.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Mars enters your solar sixth house of health and lower-level work. Mars is very strong in Aries so I look for an upswing in your energies and well-being. It will square Pluto early in this period, so I hope no surgery is needed. Let's hope for an intensive self-evaluation instead, with a total revamp of your lifestyle. Venus also enters the same house, bringing more opportunities to pick up temp work or make more money on a sideline. This could be fun.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars enters your solar fifth house of fun and games so sports will be on the agenda; best days: Tues-Wed. Either watching games or participating, you will have loads of fun especially if you take a certain special someone along to the games. Celebrate Earth Day camping outdoors or with a spring hike to check out the trilliums and marsh marigolds.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Mars enters your solar fourth house of home and family and unfortunately this can be a volatile influence; it can mean a male guest or workmen, or it can bring arguments and risk of fire. It can simply mean heat, physical heat, so invest in sun shades and proper landscaping to shield windows from the sun. Feng shui: A prism hung in a sunny window breaks up the heat and people feel less stressed by it. Also a wooden match wedged between the stove and sink (break off the flammable tip) discourages stove fires. A mirror above a fireplace balances the firey influence of the fireplace, so there are fewer arguments.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from the previous weekend till Sunday night. The Moon squares Mercury very early Sunday so make sure you clarify communications regarding plans for the day; you may not want to go anywhere and that's OK, too. The Moon conjuncts Jupiter (morn) and Neptune (evening) making you altruistic and charitable toward all. It is also good for incubating a dream; see for instructions and info about a study.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon enters Pisces Sunday night and stays till Wednesday morn. The Moon sextiles Pluto in Capricorn, your eleventh house of groups and friends; spend time schmoozing with friends and they may suddenly give you a referral or or other boon. Venus conjuncts Mars in your sign on Tuesday night so be prepared to either chat up that special someone or have a romantic dinner with hubby. Mars enters your second house of money so be cautious about credit, and examine bills for mystery fees.
