Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 20-26, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

Happy birthday to lovely Libra!
The Sun enters Libra on Tuesday at 5:19 pm. Librans pride themselves on being fair. They try to listen to the other side before making a decision. But ponder for a moment what fairness and equality mean. They are not necessarily the same thing! Two people who make very different incomes but are expected to contribute the same amount of money to the rent, are NOT in a fair situation. Think about how two people do a waltz together; one has to step back when the other steps forward, and vice versa. That is harmony.

The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury on Sunday morning. This is good for sales (and finds) of marked-down merchandise or anything at rummage or flea markets; just check it over carefully and make sure of the size.

Then Mercury conjoins Saturn (and Pallas) at 25 degrees of Virgo on Tuesday at 5 am. Mercury opposes Uranus Wednesday at 24 degrees of Virgo and Pisces. Mercury-Saturn lends great concentration and organizational ability. Mercury-Uranus on the other hand can have problems focusing; it can be very restless. It also likes new ideas but is not open to others' ideas. So maybe you might need to burn up some physical/nervous energy before settling in to a task. You might have to make a list to help you keep your nose to the grindstone.

Venus enters earthy Virgo on Sunday morning. The positive expression of this is to serve others in whatever way expresses your values (Venus). The negative expression may lead to a great deal of judgmentalism and a need to always be right. Virgo hon, you may be close to perfect, but it is not fun to be around someone who expects others to be perfect. We are after all human. This month, make a point of appreciating the absolute perfection expressed in nature's designs.

Mars in Cancer is inconjunct Jupiter in Aquarius at 7:50 pm on Wednesday. This often produces an abundance of physical energy but it needs to be focused and directed, often in a creative or in a disciplined way. Good outlets for this energy are dance and yoga. With Mars in Cancer, let's add swimming to the list; not just splashing around, but several long laps in an Olympic pool or perhaps some pool calisthenics.

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 in Eastern Standard or Eastern Daylight Savings Time depending on the season.

ARIES - March 20-April 19 – Enjoy the last golden weeks of summer, Aries, because soon Saturn will enter your opposite sign, and things might feel very different, very quickly. It isn't like a house will fall on you, no; I'm not forecasting any disasters or anything. It's just that marriage and other partnerships might start to feel like a real job, you know what I mean? Of course the benefits can be extraordinary when it does pay off. Mars in the solar fourth house wants to grill dinner outside while the weather is still warm.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Vesta is in your solar fourth house now, where you would willingly vegetate at home alone if you could. You are quite happy puttering around the house thru October. Saturn moves into your solar sixth house of health and jobs. You may finally get a job, altho not your dream career job. Also Saturn lends the discipline to finally stick to a health regimen. Ceres is already there, trying to get you to eat some veggies. Pull out your old Victory Garden cookbook and plan your weekly menus.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Watch all your college tuition and book fees for errors or extra charges. Mars in your solar second house all month (till mid-Oct.) is socking you with fees and commissions, etc. so comb thru your statements like a hawk. Uranus in your solar career house is opposing Mercury, Saturn and Pallas in your solar fourth, which could lead to a lot of arguments at home and at work. Or at home about work. Maybe you are spending too much time in the office or on the road and neglecting family. Search your soul and try to make an accommodation.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction may have you holding a rummage sale or stopping by on your way to brunch. Mars in your solar first house has been firing you up and revving your engines. Cancer is a very active, cardinal sign but Mars puts you on the move. You might appreciate a foot soak or massage at the end of the day. Baby yourself. Your solar third and ninth houses are very contentious; if you are not involved in politics in some way, you might get active (leafletting, getting signatures on a petition, sending messages to your reps).

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Your temper may be your downfall this month so make a point of working on that. Vesta in your sign has you quite happy being alone, which is very uncharacteristic of Leo. Keep a tight rein on personal finances because surprise charges can crop up; check those credit card statements for mystery charges. Best days this week have the Moon in Sag, Wed.-Fri. Thursday is the easiest, with lots of sextiles for progress on personal goals and a fun Mars for sports and sitting by a fireplace.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Venus enters earthy Virgo on Sunday morning. The positive expression of this is to serve others in whatever way expresses your values (Venus). The negative expression may lead to a great deal of judgmentalism and a need to always be right. Virgo hon, you may be close to perfect, but it is not fun to be around someone who expects others to be perfect. We are after all human. This month, make a point of appreciating the absolute perfection expressed in nature's designs.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from Sunday till the wee hours Monday. The Moon trines Jupiter early, then Neptune in the afternoon, in air signs; a movie might be on the agenda for the day. On Tuesday the Sun enters your sun sign, so happy birthday, and it couldn't happen to a lovelier person. I predict a very transformative year, due to the square to Pluto in Capricorn. Your home situation is also likely to change; either a renovation, remodeling, or yes foreclosure are possible. Your home might also become your workplace; see about creating a studio or office there.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 12:52 am Monday till Wednesday morning. Monday the Moon is at the midpoint of Venus and Pluto; you may be bombarded with messages from a friend or admirer. A swim before or after work on Tuesday will feel great. The boss may favor you with a promotion or a big job Tuesday. You could get a second wind and then work late at home.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 7:43 am Wednesday till Friday evening. Your fourth and tenth house axis may be under strain on Wednesday; I see you dashing from one to the other and your schedule disrupted. Your mother may be the cause or your last-resort babysitter. Thursday is a lot less eventful, but it shows a lot of adjustments made with a spirit of cooperation. Have a set speech ready Friday if you get bad news or a change in work hours. It's time to roll with the punches.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Monday's Moon in Scorpio favors get-togethers with friends. The Moon is in Capricorn from 6:19 pm Friday thru the weekend. Friday evening looks unfavorable for that weekly date with your spouse, not with a Moon square the Sun. Saturday morn is much better, with a Moon trine Venus, or the previous Sunday night. Saturday morning favors just being with your special someones, sprucing up the home, enjoying art, music or nature.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mercury, Pallas and Saturn are closely inconjunct Neptune in Aquarius this week. You might have a very creative and enjoyable time indulging arts, crafts or photography. The fact that your solar eighth house is activated may just mean that you recharge your batteries this way, or it can mean that any attempt to dodge taxes or other fees may be on your mind. Ceres in your solar ninth house approaches a trine to the same Neptune; Ceres wants to feed your mind with classes or books.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Your spouse or other partner will look like the villain to you, expecting you to maintain records and ledgers, and coming down hard if you mess up. Pisces is not usually adapted for that stuff, so try to automate this as much as possible. Mars in your solar fifth house wants to take you swimming while the pool is still open. Vesta has entered your solar sixth house where you just want to be left alone to lick your wounds for awhile.
