Your Milky Way Horoscope May 10-16

By Milky Way Maid

Happy Mothers Day to all! This year it comes on the heels of a Full Moon in Scorpio, lending a spiritual flavor to the weekend. The Moon is opposite Mercury the night before also, so make sure you clarify your agenda for Sunday. Sunday has easy trines from the Moon (mom) to Venus (gifts, flowers, perfume, jewelry), as well as to Mars, so you might take mom to a sporting event, hit the links, or go dancing that night.

Saturn stations direct on Saturday at 10:06 pm Eastern time at 14 degrees 55 minutes of Virgo. But Saturn moves so slowly that you will probably not detect any change till it is well on its way forward. Projects that had been stagnating may finally get a go-ahead, rules may be finalized, Saturn has been retrograding for so long, since the very end of 2008, that we may have trouble remembering what projects we laid aside.

Anyway, Saturn's first aspect after going direct is an opposition to the Moon on May 18. The Moon is the general public, and the public may not like some new rules being handed down from on high; the public may not like some of its new governmental representatives, or scientific announcements (Saturn rules science), or restrictions on travel (or whatever) due to the H1N1 flu.

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. Also note: some aspects are exact on a weekend but may find opportunity for expression on the Friday or Monday nearest the exact aspect.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – Your ruler Mars receives a lovely trine from the Moon late Sun.; your wife may be the beneficiary of your affections. The Moon squares Mars on Wed. pm; you may be too revved up and start working madly on a pile of work before clarifying what needs to be done. Mars gets a sextile from the Moon Sat. morn and you will be happy as a clam working (or playing) with friends. The good news about Mercury retrograde is that when it re-enters your second house of money, mislaid checks or mail may turn up and solve some mysteries. The Saturn station affects health matters so see that you do not neglect checkups.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Moon plus Pluto in your solar ninth house of higher education Tuesday may have you researching the library stacks for your term papers. Mercury retrogrades into Taurus Wednesday, at almost 8 pm Eastern Time. Things you thought were squared away may have to be rehashed or revised. Sun in Taurus receives a trine from the Moon and a sextile from Uranus Thursday morning; a woman friend may be able to help you with tutoring or computer gizmos. The Sun in Taurus squares Neptune Saturday about 10 pm Pacific/1 am Eastern. You need some feedback to keep in touch with reality; ask best friends for makeover tips; get comments to your blog.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in easy aspect when in Aquarius this week, Thursday evening till Sunday morning. Spend time with close friends Friday night under a Moon-Venus sextile. Share a jog or workout with sporty friends on Saturday as the Moon sextiles Mars. The Saturn station in your solar fourth house can affect your housing situation, obviously. I know individuals who are buying or moving into new homes this spring so if your location is an issue, check around for listings or mortgage assistance.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – I think the only matter that may affect you in regard to the Saturn station is that the family car may finally take its last gasp. Or you could lose a cell phone/iPhone. In other words, things under the general heading of communications, transportation, messages. Aggravating, I am sure, but usually no one dies of it. Usually, :~). If looking to get out of a phone contract, there are some companies that will buy out the old contract when you switch to the new provider. See Credo* online about that, for one.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Saturn station in your solar second house will affect your cash flow or possessions; for example it can have you working like a dog on overtime, or change your shift (day to night or vice versa). Temporary jobs can come to an end, or new ones start under this transit. Frankly I think it is better for jobs to start while Saturn is direct, but I could be wrong. The fact that Mercury is retrograde confuses the matter, as people can promise you all kinds of things and then they can't get hold of you. Keep in close contact as they hash out details and revisions to keep you in their plans. The square to Jupiter Saturday can be very auspicious.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Sunday you will host a lovely and harmonious gathering for the holiday. Moon in Capricorn from Tues.-Thurs. are your best days this week, especially Wednesday for creativity or sports. Saturn stations in your sign on Saturday evening. See notes above for more. Saturn in your solar first house is good for going on a weight-loss or exercise program. I have found that a Sun-Saturn conjunction works for quick weight loss, altho it takes lots of hard work.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Tuesday may be the most difficult day with the Moon squaring Mars affecting your fourth and seventh houses; family and partnership can suffer from arguments. You benefit from counseling that digs to the root of troubles. The Moon is in easy aspect while in Aquarius, Thursday into Sunday. Those days may focus on children or on creative projects (the children of your mind-spirit). This is especially true on Friday and Saturday evenings. Saturday's Mars sextile may make you more physically active; you may also attend a fun sporting event.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Clubs and groups you belong to may be undergoing revisions and changes in direction, under the Saturn station in your solar eleventh house. If renewal is coming up soon, inquire about their goals to see if that supports your reason for membership. Scorpios who are in school may lose focus under the Mercury retrograde; you can benefit from tutoring or brushing up on earlier coursework.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from the previous Saturday night till Tuesday morn. Clear any confusion arising from the Moon opposition to Mercury Sat. night, then have a great brunch together (probably at home). The afternoon and evening are the time for Sag to stretch the legs, in outdoors activities or sports. You will be prone to upsets Monday due to Moon square Uranus, possibly related to appliance breakdown at home. Ah, well, those things can be fixed.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from Tuesday morn till Thursday evening. You're in a deep, deep investigative mood Tuesday, wanting to know everything from who did what to the meaning of life. Fortunately Virgo brings a healthy dinner and snaps you back to the here-and-now. Wednesday is very productive tho you may have to backtrack and redo a few things.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from Thursday evening till next Sunday morn. You get relatively few aspects Friday, just a sextile to Venus in the evening, so enjoy a relaxing date with your mate on the town. Saturday features a sextile to Mars, so schedule some hard work and/or a workout. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter late Saturday with another one to Neptune in the wee hours Sunday; be cautious of overdoing with alcohol. Better to schedule a movie marathon and a mountain of popcorn with it. Enjoy!

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Saturn station opposes your Sun sign; your spouse or business partner undergoes changes in plans. Marriages already on the rocks may decide to terminate, but new ones are likely to last. Car trouble is the most likely effect of Mercury retrograde in your solar third house of transportation and communications. Though it will probably be nothing major, it still is a source of aggravation for those Pisceans easily upset by every setback. The Full Moon in Scorpio on the 9th should give you spiritual fortitude and resilience.
