Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 23-29, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

Happy birthday to Virgo!
You share your sign with with performers who work hard to make it look easy, whose ranks include Gene Kelly, Ingrid Bergman, Agnes deMille, and Lola Falana.

Mars enters Cancer Tuesday at 1:15 pm EDT. Mars in Cancer is not a comfortable place to express itself. Mars here lashes out to protect itself, or withdraws to a private room, rather than being active and assertive. Probably you get the most done when you are mad as heck! Mature Cancerians are aware of others needs as well as their own. BTW don't burn any bridges this week, Cancer, because this is not the most favorable time for you.

Venus enters Leo Wednesday at 12:12 pm EDT. It is Leo's turn to get spruced up at the salon and revive your glorious mane after all these weeks of soaking up sun and wind. The simplest cuts seem to flatter the boxy leonine face, often with a curl or wave. Venus in Leo has a love-hate relationship with their own need for approval and/or applause. They fear rejection even tho they crave attention. Mature Leos are able to share the spotlight and realize they can affect and even inspire others with their natural talents.

Mars in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn on Wednesday afternoon, which sounds like a real knock-down, dragged out battle to the death. Sports events will likely exhibit smashing wins by large margins, or shut-outs. Cancer is likely to get the short end of things in any fight, just because Cancer is not a favorable place for Mars to express itself.

Mercury sextiles Venus on Friday at 9:26 am EDT. You will find it easier to say those three little words, so if there is a certain someone that you want to know has a special place in your heart, this is a good time to tell them so.

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. Times given are Eastern Daylight Time in summer and Eastern Time in winter.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – The Moon in Libra Sun.-Mon. shines a lovely light on your marriage sector. You, too, may be sucked into the Mars-Pluto oppositions on Wednesday and Saturday; its affects your solar fourth-tenth house axis so this could precipitate a last-ditch effort to save a house or professional reputation. Thursday can bring favorable news regarding college funding with the Moon trines Venus, which BTW makes a wonderful grand trine with your natal fire planets. Mercury in Libra sextiles Venus in Leo on Friday morn; keep the home fires burning with a love note in your partner's pocket or briefcase.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Mars-Pluto opposition is in your solar third-ninth house axis. You may lose contact with relatives, or miss important communications. Also it sounds like a lousy time to take a trip! Venus enters your solar fourth house, spreading her smiles and flowers on home and family. Perhaps you host a woman visitor, freshen up the house with a spot of paint or host a party. A party sounds good; you still have briquets left and lots of bbq sauce, right?

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Mars-Pluto opposition is in your solar second-eighth house axis. This sounds very difficult; Mars is debt, interest, fees, and commissions that reduce your profit or disposable income. Be very cautious about using credit and check the fine print. Also this may not be a great time to incur college loans even at a favorable interest rate; look into deferment or forbearance options if repayment terms are not realistic. Venus in your solar third house Leo brings visits with female relatives or neighbors; you may attend a shower or block party (on Friday?) where you make favorable contacts so don't miss out.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – You will be sorely tried by the Mars-Pluto opposition this week on both Wednesday and Saturday. See notes above. You may feel backed into a corner, like you are only defending yourself, but force yourself to cool off a bit before discussing matters. You are one of the sweetest of signs and too often taken for granted or whatever, so you've got to work on those boundary issues. Venus in Leo, your solar second house brings a bit of welcome relief money-wise. Friday's Mercury-Venus sextile might be very good for hosting a rummage sale or party sale.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Mars-Pluto opposition affects your solar sixth-twelfth axis, and this can brings concerns in the area of health. You may visit a hospital altho I hope it's only to cheer up a friend. Venus enters your sign this week, favoring you in many ways but especially in getting a nice trim at the salon. Leo has a wonderful mane but your sun-worshipping can dry and damage your hair so give yourself some TLC. The Mercury-Venus sextile on Friday may be a good day for the appointment or just catching up with women relatives and neighbors.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - The Mars-Pluto opposition affects your solar fifth-eleventh axis, so you might have to choose between your friends and your creative interests or children. Maybe you need to ask yourself if these 'friends' are helping you grow; if not, try joining groups where you can be with people with similar interests. Monday has a nice sextile from the Moon to the Sun in Virgo, when you may luck onto helpful information from a woman relative or neighbor. You are able to get lots done with helpful aspects to Saturn on Wednesday but not on Thursday or Friday.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from the previous Saturday till Monday afternoon. Early Sunday morning the Moon is conjunct Ceres; you might nurture yourself a bit with a bubble bath. The Moon trines Jupiter that night, spreading joy at parties or among children. A Moon-Venus square and a Moon-Mars trine sandwich the noon hours on Monday. You will be confident and energetic but with a twinge of jealousy lurking about; good for initiating projects or swapping favors. Mercury in Libra squares Mars Tuesday night; this is apt to cause friction and argument unless you can control the ground rules of debating.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from Monday afternoon till Wednesday evening. The Moon sextiles Pluto then sextiles the Sun 2 hours later on Monday afternoon; take back your power and others will respect you more. Tuesday is quiet but on Wednesday, the Moon squares the Jupiter-Neptune conjunction and also sextiles Saturn and trines Uranus! You will be busy and probably creative, with supportive friends and mentors. Venus moves into your solar tenth house bringing a welcome bit of luck if you are job-hunting, or a small bonus if already in a job. Friday is one likely day for something to happen in that regard.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from Wednesday evening till Saturday morn. The Moon trines Venus in Leo on Wednesday night, which favors girls' night out or perhaps a visit to the local college for a lecture or art exhibit. The Moon squares the Sun again on Thursday morning, so avoid playing chicken on your daily commute. The Moon squares Saturn and then Uranus on Friday, putting you in the middle of a T-square; Sag is capable of pulling an advantage from a challenging situation, but avoid escalating conflicts.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from Saturday morn thru the weekend. Saturday afternoon the Moon joins Pluto and opposes Mars, very similar to the Wednesday opposition; think before telling off a close woman friend because this fight could be quite serious and have lasting effects. Remember, you do catch more flies with honey than vinegar. Venus moves into your solar eighth house bringing a payment from the insurance company, or possibly a modest dividend from a mutual fund.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Mars-Pluto opposition is in your solar sixth-twelfth house axis. Like Leo, you may have health concerns this week or visit someone in the hospital. Venus in your solar seventh house of partners shines a cheering light in your house of marriage and partnerships; you may find out just how much your dear partner loves you. You may even hear those three little words on Friday when Mercury sextiles Venus.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Mars-Pluto opposition is in your solar fifth-eleventh house axis. You might have to choose between your friends and your creative interests or children. Maybe you need to ask yourself if these 'friends' are helping you grow; if not, try joining groups where you can be with people with similar interests. Venus moves into Leo, your solar sixth house. Pump a woman friend for everything she knows about health or medical matters; having her over for coffee sounds good.
