Your Milky Way Horoscope July 19-25, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

The New Moon Solar Eclipse is on Tuesday, July 21 at 10:35 pm Eastern time, at 29 degrees 27 minutes of Cancer. The last aspect the Moon makes before the eclipse is a trine to Uranus in Pisces, and its first major aspect after the eclipse is a sextile from Leo to Mars in Gemini. The fact that this falls at the very end of Cancer suggests that the last act will play out regarding the housing and mortgage crises. I am guessing that Cancer, the sign ruling family, emphasizes that people will probably have to double up with relatives to survive.

Cancerian natives may find more people than usual coming to cry on your shoulder under this eclipse. You are kind of an emotional recycling plant, where people take their turmoil to be released and dissolved. Dry up their tears and send them on their way when they have unburdened themselves and sorted out their feelings. This is your gift to them.

If you like to work with a Cazimi moon, starting something a half hour before to a half hour after this exact aspect (eclipse) is very auspicious. Cancer is a cardinal sign and makes things happen, so if there is something that you need to make happen, doing it under this eclipse should help speed things along.

Venus squares Saturn earlier on Tuesday. You may terminate a love relationship, or you may willingly take on a duty (Saturn) out of love (Venus).

The Sun enters sunny Leo, its home turf, at midday Wednesday. It follows the Moon, already in Leo since Tuesday evening. These double rays of Leo energy can, like Mary Richards, turn the world on with your smile. You will seek an audience for your 'performances', whether it's open mike night or just the aisle of the grocery store.

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 – Best days this week: Moon in Leo from late Tuesday till late Thursday. Wednesday can be a real power day for you, with Sun, Moon, Mercury all in Leo, your solar fifth house of fun, games, children and creativity. Volunteer to help chaperon a children's outing, or coach your own child in the fine points of pitching and fielding. Thursday is good for being in the spotlight, even if it's only to give a presentation at work. The solar eclipse is in your solar fourth house of home and family; you may latch onto a house if you've been hunting for one, or finally save the house you have from foreclosure. Have fun with family outings this month, too.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon in Cancer trines Uranus in Pisces in your solar third and eleventh houses; you find fellowship and laughs in touring your own home town with friends. The opposition on Thursday from Leo Moon to Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius may stress you over conflict between the tugs of home and career, but you have the opportunity to insert humanitarian principles into your company's code of ethics. The solar eclipse is in your solar third house of communications, putting extra importance on everything you say and write. Use spellcheck and have a friend or pro look over your business letters.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The week begins with the Moon in Gemini, till Sunday evening. The Moon trines that super conjunction of Jupiter-Neptune-Chiron, so you may ace that college exam or wow a jury with a closing argument. Chiron in the mix warns against overdoing (Jupiter), so take care with your diet. You will be able to marshal your arguments for effective debate by Monday evening, when Mercury sextiles Mars. On Tuesday Venus in Gemini squares Saturn in Virgo; you may feel lonely when you have a perfectly nice 'other' looking you in the face. Count up this person's good qualities before you regret some snappy retort.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in its home, Cancer, from Sunday night till late Tuesday. Sunday night you may feel like you are helpless to act, but that is only if you have been giving away your power. On Tuesday, the Moon trines Uranus; you are able to harness an inspiration or insight and buckle down to make it a reality (Moon sextile Saturn). See above notes on the Full Moon solar eclipse this week because you will be most affected.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – You will be able to marshal your arguments for effective debate by Monday evening, when Mercury sextiles Mars. The Moon is in showy Leo late Tuesday till late Thursday. You will be overflowing with Leo energy Wednesday and Thursday, since both Sun and Moon will be your sign. (Mercury also entered Leo on July 17.) Hold the stage door open, because you are going on whether they've cast you or not! Caution may be useful on Thursday, tho, due to the opposition to Jupiter-Neptune, but I interpret this as an opportunity to project your best, most artistic and idealistic side.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – On Tuesday Venus in Gemini squares Saturn in Virgo; you may feel lonely when you have a perfectly nice 'other' looking you in the face. Count up this person's good qualities before you regret some snappy retort. The Moon is in Virgo from late Thursday till very late Saturday. Your powers of discrimination are keen Thursday night, especially if you are doing something creative. You may waste a great deal of time and energy tho, on Friday, due to the Moon square Mars. It may be a challenge to speak up on Saturday, since you may fear losing someone's love or approval by disagreeing;(Moon square Venus). Saturday afternoon, you may feel uplifted by inspiring music or other art; you might also amuse yourself by singing along.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Best days this week: Moon in Gemini on Sunday, with a grand trine in air signs formed by Moon, your natal planets, and Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius. Meditate on your ideals, and let them unfold in their own way in your life. The solar eclipse in cardinal sign Cancer (your solar tenth house) helps spur you into action regarding career matters. I think you may luck onto the perfect, I mean perfect, place for you to ply your trade.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – With the Sun, Moon, Mercury all in Leo in your solar tenth house of career this week, you really need to talk about your goals in that area of your life. Network, talk to a mentor or advisor, let others know what you want to focus on. The opposition on Thursday from Leo Moon to Jupiter-Neptune in Aquarius may stress you over conflict between the tugs of home and career, but you have the opportunity to insert humanitarian principles into your company's code of ethics. You can make the world a better place, not just your own private kingdom.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Tuesday may be difficult; Venus in Gemini squares Saturn in Virgo, involving your solar seventh house of relationships. Think before your wit runs off with your mouth, and consider the other person's good qualities in the balance. Best days this week: Moon in Leo from Tuesday night till Thursday night.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Pluto denotes personal power, among other things. Its transit through your sign will transform your idea of power. Is it rooted merely in money and success? If so, you will have to give up those notions. Real power and authority come from inner wisdom. The solar eclipse is in your solar seventh house of relationships, and may put your marriage and other partnerships on a new footing. Perhaps you might consider going to an enrichment seminar some weekend, to put the magic back in your marriage.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Sunday will be very active due to the Moon in Gemini, in your solar fifth house, making scads of aspects. You might be busy with children or creative projects that day; in either case, hold a vision of your goal in front of you to keep from getting sidetracked. On Tuesday Venus in your solar fifth house makes a difficult square to Saturn in Virgo; try not to focus on nitpicking flaws in your romantic partner or your creative works. Nothing can survive such scrutiny; rather, balance their merits against deficits and you will see they are worth keeping.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – You may feel dissatisfied, with or without good reason, regarding your home and spouse. Tuesday's transit of Venus in Gemini square Saturn in Virgo will pass; consider the other person's good qualities before opening your mouth to nitpick. The solar eclipse in Cancer is in your solar fifth house of children; your children may cry on your shoulder yet again. Offer tea and sympathy, and send them on their way after drying their tears. Best days this week: Moon in Cancer from Sunday night till Tuesday night.
