Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 27-Oct. 3, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

We have a Full Moon in Aries this coming weekend, 2:10 am Sunday if you are in the Eastern Time zone. It looks like a pretty easy omen' for the coming month, lots of sextiles and a Mars trine. Mars in Cancer trines Uranus; this is good for buying any mechanical or electronic, including cars and computers. There is only one opposition besides the Sun-Moon, and that is Mercury in Virgo to Uranus in Pisces. That can actually be very positive, prodding one into invention and innovation.

Mercury goes direct on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 9:14 am, almost in time to start your work day. I can hear all of you giving a huge sigh of relief; I think the retrograde is good for a lot of things, but shopping is jut not one of them. Retrace your steps carefully, and make sure you have dotted all the i's. It's a good week for catching mistakes before they go out into the cold cruel world, as long as you don't take anything for granted. Get a second opinion, have a friend look over your revised resume, etc.

Mercury is sextiling Mars twice this week, once on Thursday and again on Sunday. The two planets are in lockstep at 21 and 23 degrees in Virgo and Cancer this week till Mercury gets back up to speed. It's a good aspect for sports performance, as Mars is sports and athletics, and Mercury is hand-eye coordination. You might see a lot of good catches on NFL Sunday. It's good for asserting (Mars) one's rights in person or by mail/email. Pallas is also nearby at 29 Virgo; service people deliver with a smile.

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 – The Moon is in Aries from 5:21 am Saturday thru the weekend. The Full Moon at 1:10 am Sunday Oct. 4, is at 11 degrees 10 minutes Aries. Check your natal chart to see if the Moon contacts natal planets, and take clues from that. The Moon's first aspect after the Full is a sextile to Jupiter midday Sunday; this sounds very auspicious, and very lucky for Arians. Jupiter's placement suggests benefit from groups, clubs and friends. Update your network of contacts. Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar sixth house; you may finally figure out the cause of a health issue, or get a correct diagnosis.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar fifth house; you feel like having fun again. Plans or invites for fall events arrive; your hands are more skilled at artistic efforts. Look around for art exhibits or fall festivals to go to because you are more appreciative of skilled work now. You notice more details. You may even pick the NFL winners of the week. The Mars-Mercury-Uranus aspects this week could help you invent, or tweak your blog, for greater satisfaction.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar fourth house; communications with family members improve, especially if you will consider starting regular family business meetings (not at dinner time). You might be very inventive about juggling bills this week. You may even find a way to avoid any interest or fees. Please, do tell us all about it. Also home and career may be in greater conflict for the short term; maybe you have to cover for an absent co-worker.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar third house; delayed mail or other messages finally arrive; you may have to revise and update brochures. I suggest you make a habit of requesting a 'delivery confirmation' when sending packages or important emails. A talk with your spouse about the kids is productive on Wednesday or Saturday. Also on those days, you could negotiate a change in terms for your cellphone, or find a buyer for the rest of your contract term. Perhaps the telecom may have to replace a malfunctioning phone.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar second house; personal finance matters are cleared up, and delayed checks finally arrive. Make sure you get receipts for your expenses. Best days this week come on the weekend, when the Moon is in Aries. Perhaps you dash up to campus to see how the kids are settling in to college life. The Sun is in Libra, your solar third house, and Pallas and Mercury soon follow -- Sharpen up your speech-making and writing skills; it is possible you may get the call to serve as lecturer or emcee.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar first house; maybe you redo your hair or other appearance. Your verbal clarity improves to your usual precision. You could look lucky on Thursday and this coming Sunday. Mercury and Mars sextile each other on both days, giving you even better hand-eye coordination than usual. This is good for sports or for your beloved crafts, too. Your eagle eyes may locate lost objects or spreadsheet errors with equal skill.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar twelfth house; perhaps you have been in a private mood lately, but Mercury wants you to get ready to come out of your cloister. So plan fall get-togethers and parties. Libras throw the very best parties, with wonderful food and lovely china; they know who should meet whom and do the introductions so beautifully. Best days this week are Mon.-Wed., when the Moon is in cool Aquarius.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar eleventh house; you may have to re-enter your data on a club or association referral service; you re-apply for membership in a club or for a member offer. Make sure memberships and subscriptions have not lapsed by accident. Do make a point of getting out of your lair to play, too; why not try picking the NFL winners of the week or something like that? Best days this week are Sunday, and Wed. night thru Friday, when the Moon is in compatible signs.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar tenth house; a job may come through, or other details about workplace changes may finally be shared with staff. In fact, your head may spin with all the changes in direction; I wonder if you might be asked to float from department to dept. to help where needed. Sag sure doesn't mind a little variety. Best days this week in general are when the Moon is in the compatible sign of Aquarius (Mon.-Wed.).

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from Sunday till Monday morning. The Moon opposes Mars in Cancer that morning, which implies a battle of wills with one's spouse. Great competitiveness, so it's good for athletics. An afternoon trine to Mercury in your solar ninth favors working on your book project or school work. A sextile to Uranus and trine to Saturn in the evening helps you concentrate on working out that unusual idea you have. Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar ninth house; a publishing project is finally ready, or your college application accepted.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 7:07 am Monday till Wednesday evening. Monday has a smooth Sun-Moon trine, helping teams work harmoniously. On Tuesday evening the Moon joins Jupiter, making you perhaps too expansive but in a good mood. Careful what you promise someone. Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar eighth house, so you may finally get an insurance or estate matter cleared up. You may be a bit foggy Wednesday morning due to the Moon conjunct Neptune in your sign; make extra coffee?

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Mercury goes direct Tuesday in your solar seventh house, so your spouse may suddenly get talkative or drop notes or emails to you. It's nice that he's talking but you may get upset over his plans for the kids; try to get him to scale down to something more appropriate for their ages. An invite for a public appearance may finally come through. The Moon is in Pisces from 7:26 pm Wednesday till Saturday morn. A Moon opposition to Venus makes a goodbye hit home; keep in touch with children off to college via email, and to take a larger view of these brief partings.
