Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 25-31, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

A T-square shapes up on Sunday when the Moon in Aquarius opposes Mars in Leo, and squares Sun in Scorpio. With all these planets in fixed signs, people will dig in their heels and resist compromise. Not a time for sticking to principal. Let's hope that you can just agree to disagree and leave it at that, going on to matters of the present moment like who will go to the Super Bowl or stuff like that. However, this T-square could portend something good like making a commitment to a relationship. The trine to Venus on Monday night (followed by the conjunction to Jupiter) sure suggests that a happy outcome will be worked out.

Wednesday is much more harmonious, with Moon trine Sun (2:37 pm), and Venus trine Jupiter (10 pm). Schedule meetings, interviews and introductions for this day. Venus-Jupiter can be a hazard to those with a sweet tooth because it can tempt you to overdo, to the point of getting sick. But very nice for social occasions like showers or pink-slip parties. You can pick up lots of gifts or helpful tips at such times.

Mercury enters Scorpio at 6:09 am Wednesday. Mercury here can be very awkward, because Scorpio fears revealing his emotions will make him vulnerable. As a result he becomes defensive, secretive or even vindictive. He enjoys a reputation for being mysterious. However, his strength is a keen insight into motivations; these insights can transform others' lives. Mercury here is a great psychoanalyst, counselor, detective, writer or actor.

Saturn enters Libra at 1:09 pm Thursday, the sign of its exaltation and incidentally the sign at the birth of America. (Saturn was at 14 degrees 47 minutes of Libra on July 4, 1776.) Saturn in Libra brings lessons in harmony, diplomacy, cooperation and marriage. Keep in mind one's ideals in the area of personal relationships because this pulls the energies upward toward that higher ground.

PS: I have been experimenting with using planetary hours during my week. So far I have not won any money. But I do notice that I get more of this column written during Mercury hours! Unfortunately I cannot always choose what gets done when (sigh) so I have to slog thru it as best as I can.

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 2pm Friday till next Sunday night. While you won't be directly involved in the T-square on Sunday night, you may have to pull a friend out of a brewing argument. Change the subject or suggest a change of scene. On Friday another T-square forms with Moon in Aries, Saturn in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel blocked and frustrated. A trine to Mars later that night gives you an outlet in sports or playing with the kids. A sextile to Jupiter in your solar eleventh house Saturday can bring good times or good advice from friends.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – You're on the receiving end of that Sunday T-square, Taurus, and might feel like taking cover. Family and career pressures can build up, and arguments can easily break out. It may feel like everyone is blaming you, but they are just venting their own frustrations. You just demand respect for the rock of Gibraltar that you are. And frankly, a little chocolate can be counted on to sweeten everyone's mood.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Your Sun plays into a Venus-Jupiter trine in the other air signs on Wednesday night. A child may be accepted into a college of their choice. An in-law may be a wonderful choice to give one of your children lessons, or mentorship. The Moon-Sun trine in your tenth and sixth houses could mean a part-time job or hobby may open up into a full-time position. Ask around at work or check the bulletin board. By the time the Moon is conjunct Uranus on Thurs.-Fri. you may hear back about that.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Your sun sign fills out the trine between the Moon and Sun in the other water signs on Wednesday afternoon. Your intuition may work overtime but is rarely wrong. A child may gain acceptance at the college of their choice, become a published writer, or pass the bar exam. Just something that you are all too glad to celebrate and trumpet to everyone on your email list. Saturn enters your solar fourth house Libra. Your taste may become more conservative, and you also may begin to accumulate possessions (again?).

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Venus-Jupiter trine on Wednesday night is very congenial to you. You may introduce two people who really ought to meet, or a sibling may introduce you to a future spouse. Saturn enters your solar third house, prompting you to make your mind more orderly. You may embark on a course of study, or get into lifetime learning. You may start keeping notes or a notebook even though you may not have an idea of what you will make of it (such as a book).

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury enters your solar third house and you may suddenly be less verbal. You may get better at analyzing others once you sit back and observe, tho. Saturn enters your solar second house and you may have to work harder for your money. Yes, I know that lots of us have had to work harder for less in recent years, and you are probably no exception, but this placement calls for even greater thrift. The upside is that you may enjoy sharing or borrowing items that you thought you needed to buy.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Saturn enters your solar first house which tends to help if you wish to lose weight. You may become more serious and reserved, or more focused on what you need to do. You may also need to be more aware of proper nutrition, as your health can suffer if you ignore this. Make sure to get some sun and fight stress. An upside is that you may decide to make a relationship legal or at least formalize it with a contract. Your best day this week is likely to be Wednesday when Venus in Libra trines Jupiter; spend time with your children or in creative pursuits.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Saturn enters your solar twelfth house which is often dreaded as a portent of hospitalization. However, a friend used this opportunity to get a responsible job in a hospital and enjoyed it tremendously. You may feel a call to be of service in a karmic way, to the lowest of the low or to those rejected by society. Best days this week are when the Moon is in Pisces, so see that paragraph.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – You enjoy days this week when the Moon is in Aquarius (Sun.-Tues.) Best day is Tuesday if you can get together with boon companions. Mercury entering your twelfth house gives you a chance to benefit by self-reflection or self-analysis. Find a trusted person to use as a sounding board. Saturn moves into your solar eleventh house and you may suddenly gain friends among the geriatric set. You may join groups with a serious or scientific orientation.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Stalled proposals may not get a response till Moon enters Aries on Friday, and even then, you are as likely to get a Nyet as a Yes. Mercury moves into your solar eleventh house of friends where you may find that your volunteered attempts at Psych 101 are not quite welcome! Saturn moves into your solar tenth house where your good business sense and perseverance are rewarded. Make a point of retaining your humility even if you attain positions of power and influence.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from Sunday at 3:08 pm till early Wednesday. Your feelings (Moon) are part of the T-square that forms Sunday night between Mars-Sun-Moon. The trigger may be something related to family or marriage; it may even involve something good like making a commitment to a relationship. The trine to Venus on Monday night (followed by the conjunction to Jupiter) sure suggests that a happy outcome will be worked out.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 3:45 am Wednesday till midday Friday. The Moon trines the Sun in Scorpio Wednesday afternoon; you will be in a good mood and may be able to finagle needed favors. The Moon is conjunct Uranus late Thursday or early Friday; you might be way too impulsive yet be acutely psychic or intuitive about others' thoughts. Saturn and Venus in your sector of the partner's money will force you to be more disciplined about using joint accounts.
