Your Milky Way Horoscope for Aug. 30-Sept. 5, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury in Libra squares Mars at five degrees Cancer at midday Thursday, at 12:19 pm . There is some danger of accidents especially if you are suppressing anger (Mars). With Cancer involved, I think it is more likely that something you eat may sicken you or cause some reaction. Just make sure foods are well cooked and you stick to familiar foods and recipes. Everyone, look waaay back in the frig and clear out the moldy whatever back there. All the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) are likely to be affected most, but also any air and water signs.

Mercury will go retrograde on Sept. 6 so try to tie up any loose ends but do NOT rush to sign contracts. You may find out something during the retrograde period that changes whether or not you want to finalize the matter. Do take advantage of the Mercury retrograde to poke around for negative feedback from former customers or associates of whatever company you are thinking of dealing with.

It's rather a quiet week astrologically. I notice that the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy came right when the T-square between Mercury, Mars and Pluto was coming to a head. Mercury is news, Mars is health issues, Pluto represents both the 'old money' he came from and life-death transitions. Also Cancer is family or clan, and of course the Kennedy family is possibly the best-known family in American politics if not in all of America. My deepest condolences to the entire Kennedy clan on the loss of their paterfamilias.

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 – The Moon enters Aries late Saturday and soon squares Pluto in Capricorn. You may feel frustrated in trying to get your own way on something but I cannot see you moping about it. Set about doing what you can control. The Mercury-Mars square affects your solar fourth and seventh houses. Your partner and your family are areas of focus this week; perhaps some minor illness affects a family member and you have to pick them up.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Mercury-Mars square affects your solar third and sixth houses. Shuttling back and forth between clinics and labs is a possibility, or becoming ill while in transit somewhere. (not the time to try the Tilt-a-Whirl after eating hot tamales, lol) Direct your mental energies into creative activities befitting your Venus ruler.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Mercury-Mars square affects your solar second and fifth houses. This actually favors using a creative outlet to process and cope with all the multiple influences in your life. Also ponder how to utilize personal resources in multiple ways so you get the most service out of them. Look in basements and boxes for unused items that have a lot of life still in them.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Cancer at midday Thursday. The square affects your solar fourth house of family and home as well as yourself personally. Chuck out the stuff hiding in the back of the frig, and use care that conversation at dinners is positive and invites sharing.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - The Mercury-Mars square affects your solar twelfth and eleventh houses. I see brewing resentments caused by friends (or groups) taking advantage of your generous nature. This aspect can easily set off those resentments in a fiery blast. Do you really want to end the friendships, or just insert some mutual consideration? Think about how to do that.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - The Mercury-Mars square affects your solar eleventh and second houses. Friends may cost you money or other possessions, so be careful who you lend to. You especially need to guard against fault-finding under this transit. However, you are challenged to use reason and logic to deal with whatever transpires this week.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Cancer at midday Thursday. You are likely to be stressed by this aspect affecting your solar first and tenth houses of self and career. Try not to insist on absolute perfection, but do direct your energies into creative expression befitting your Venus ruler. Find beauty wherever it hides.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Cancer at midday Thursday, affecting your solar ninth and twelfth houses. Try not to shoot yourself in the foot regarding legal matters; let an attorney speak for you. If attending college, check over your hours and credits to ensure you graduate on time. Try not to waste energy on criticism if you find errors, just ask how you can all work this out as smoothly as possible.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Cancer at midday Thursday, affecting your solar eighth and eleventh houses of pooled resources and friends/groups. Perhaps the best use of this aspect is for your group of friends to pool their pocket money for a shared benefit, whether it's a delivered pizza or contributions to a multi-family rummage. Creative use of such pooled items is the keyword here.

CAPRICORN
- Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon starts the week in Capricorn till 11:43 pm Monday. The Moon trines the Sun overnight and then squares Ceres Sunday morning; favors dealings with the law courts but Ceres here will penalize those who have not been fair. The Moon trines Saturn Monday morn; you are able to benefit from talking things over with an older person and getting a new perspective. The Moon sextiles Uranus that afternoon; you may feel a bit restless and embrace new sensations and people. Mercury in Libra squares Mars in Cancer at midday Thursday. This square affects your solar seventh and tenth houses of partner and career, both deeply important to you.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Moon is in Aquarius from late Monday till noon Thursday. The Moon is conjunct Jupiter Wednesday afternoon; buoyant feelings and positive contacts with women especially (or public) mark this aspect. Make presentations or introductions now. The Moon is inconjunct Saturn and conjunct Neptune Wednesday night; this is a recurring aspect between Saturn and Neptune, and the Moon exaggerates feelings of unworthiness, and yet we may be deeply inspired by stories and performances of gifted artists.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from noon Thursday till 10:14 pm Saturday. On Thursday the Moon sextiles Pluto, and you may engage in deep discussions among friends or clubs about mysteries and the meaning of life. Browse books about psychology, New Age topics, sociology, genetics, quantum physics or mysteries. Aspects late Thursday activate the Mercury-Mars square earlier that day, so read note at top of column. This aspect will likely affect you more than most other signs. With the Moon opposing Saturn on Saturday, you are not likely to tackle the to-do list with vigor. But check that you do not miss appointments or deadlines or you will likely be quite upset over something.

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.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 16-22, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

How unusual, the Moon traipses through five signs this week. Of course it is only in two of them for a half day or less.

Mercury is conjunct Saturn in Virgo Monday morning
, heightening your powers of discrimination.

A New Moon occurs at 27 degrees 32 minutes Leo on Thursday, at 6:02 am EDT. Late Leos will be most affected, going thru a crisis that ends one chapter of their lives as they step into the next one. Some of you may step back from/into careers or the public eye, or accept/resign positions with clubs and charities. Degrees in late Leo are often occupied by people who are famous or infamous, or both. Gemini and Aquarius may benefit the most from this New Moon.

Mars in Gemini trines Neptune in Aquarius on Monday evening. Mars-Neptune aspects favors ideals and dance, or anything artistic. It's a good aspect for going dancing or just moving to music. You might also enjoy seeing an action film.

Mars in Gemini squares Uranus in Pisces on Tuesday night. Mars-Uranus (or either one with Saturn) can be quite predictive of accidents or injuries. Just be very safety-conscious and check that machinery (including cars) or electronics are working properly. Uranus is also electrical so check that cords are not frayed or otherwise damaged. Mutable signs are most vulnerable at this time.

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 – The Moon and Venus will be in your solar fourth house of home and family on Monday afternoon; you can make things happen in the area of home beautification. A bit of paint works wonders to improve the ambiance of a dining room. Wednesday and Thursday may be your best days when the Moon is in fire sign Leo and favorably aspecting Jupiter. Dream a little bigger on the New Moon Thursday, and plan out how you will make your life more enjoyable.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – is accented by this week's New Moon in Leo is in your solar fourth house of home and family. Brightening up a kitchen with sunny colors may appeal to you now, and you might host a few more house parties this month. Mercury conjunct Saturn in Virgo, your solar fifth house of creativity and fun, on Monday morning favors classes or other training in history, mining, or writing research papers.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini as the week begins but enters Cancer mid-morning. It trines Neptune about 1 am EDT and then squares Uranus over an hour later. You may be prone to lots of dreams and possibly a nightmare. If you are awake late on Saturday, you might be enjoying films or comedies. Mars in your sign trines Neptune on Monday night, a good aspect for going dancing or just moving to music.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer from Sunday morning till Tuesday morning. The Moon quickly opposes Pluto, giving you a chance to reclaim your power of self-determination. Don't let anyone walk all over you. On Monday the Moon is conjunct Venus and and sextile Saturn, which favors getting a perm or other hair treatment you want to last. On Tuesday the Moon trines Uranus, presenting you with happy surprises but also letting you see the humor in situations.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Sun opposes Neptune on Monday evening, which can make you feel confused or dragged out, but music can be restorative. The Moon is in Leo from Tuesday morning till Thursday morning. The Sun in Leo sextiles Mars on Monday morning, enhancing your physical energies. Wednesday may be your best day, when the Moon opposes that Jupiter-Neptune conjunction; you can potentially give your best performance, or at least bliss out watching someone else's.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from Thursday morning till midday Saturday. The Moon trines Pluto about midday Thursday, giving you a chance to reclaim some of your right to self-determination. Mercury in your sign is inconjunct Neptune that afternoon; you might have to correct errors in paperwork or do some editing. On Friday morning, Mercury opposes Uranus which brings too many ideas and insights to process all at once. Make notes to yourself to hang onto great ideas.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from midday Saturday thru the weekend. The Moon squares Pluto midday Saturday and frustrates you; you feel like you really have no control over things but you do, you just have to plan a bit better. The Moon is conjunct Ceres that evening, accenting issues over food or parenting. You may be troubled about something, but things will look better by Sunday when the Moon trines Jupiter.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Venus is still in watery Cancer and favorable to you, so the Moon-Venus conjunction on Monday favors ventures in law, publishing, politics, and higher education. Thursday's New Moon in Leo affects your solar fourth-tenth house axis; start a new career, put out resumes and inquiries, or scout around for a house. Mercury opposite Uranus on Friday affects your solar fifth-eleventh house axis. Look for the fun and call up some friends to share it with.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – On the whole a very favorable week for you. Use care in handling electrical or mechanical items on Tuesday evening; I can see you trying to handle home repairs and courting disaster. The New Moon in fiery Leo on Thursday is favorable for you, as it falls in your solar ninth house, your natural home. Make plans for travel or getting involved in political matters. Best days are when Moon is in Leo, Thursday thru Saturday.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - Monday may be your favorite day this week, when Moon-Venus in Cancer makes your significant other so pleasing and just plain adorable. The same day has a Mercury-Saturn conjunction in Virgo, so pay attention in a class or courtroom or council chamber because some discussion will benefit you. A Venus-Saturn aspect on Wednesday morning helps you find a lovely antique, possibly through a class or a book that ID's an odd item.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The New Moon in Leo may pose a challenging month for you, since Leo is a sign that squares your own. You may run into people who are as stubborn as you, and even more autocratic. Try to remember that everyone deserves time to speak their piece, so just sit back and listen, and tell them you will think about it.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – On the whole a fun week for you. Just use caution on Tuesday under the Mars-Uranus square. The New Moon in Leo is in a creative aspect to your natal planets; you have fun playing (role-playing?) and expressing yourself. You could be prone to bickering on Friday morning when Uranus makes you speak without thinking. Venus trines Uranus in your sign on Saturday evening. This favors beauty treatments like hair coloring, and also music (especially jazz or rock).

Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 9-15, 2009

By Milky Way Maid

Mars in Gemini squares Saturn in Virgo on Monday evening; this is an aspect that commonly marks accidents and injuries, so drive defensively and hold onto railings. Saturn rules bones so there is always the chance of a fracture. Watch out for accidental electronic slip-ups, too, like sending a personal email to “all” at work. The mutable signs will be most affected (Gemini, Virgo, Sag, Pisces).
The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo on Tuesday morning. What a wonderful day for high, ebullient spirits. Wear red if ya got it.

Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday. This can be an awfully lucky transit, especially for air signs -- altho that depends of course on your natal placements and what natal houses are affected. Possible events include luck in sports, high energy, making good personal and business decisions, making a juicy commission, brokering a deal. Good luck!

ALL TIMES GIVEN ARE EASTERN DAYLIGHT SAVING TIME.
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; actually this horoscope is better with using the ascendant. 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 – The Moon is in Aries from 4:23 pm Sunday till Tuesday night. You are all about self-empowerment, and may insist on regaining control over even small items. Perhaps you are concerned over your waistline, and ask the wife to not make sweets; let her down gently, and be willing to accept kisses as substitutes ;). The Moon squares Venus midday Monday. This is a very sociable aspect, tho possessiveness threatens to spoil a party. Teaming up with a Taurus this week can be beneficial to all.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 12:50 am Wed. till 6:25 am Friday. It is Taurus' turn to take back some of her power late Tues.; make a list of self-empowerment changes you can make in your life, & tuck it in a drawer. The Moon in Taurus sextiles Venus in Cancer late Wed.; good for a date or party, tho hard to skip noshing! Catch up with the latest news with a Virgo on Thurs. morn when Moon trines Mercury in Virgo. Moon trines Saturn in Virgo midday Thurs.; you may benefit from lunching with an older person, a mentor type, but watch that you are not late back to work. The afternoon has great opportunities hiding in a square to the Aquarian planets, plus a fun sextile to Uranus in the evening. You can make marvelous things happen for you.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 6:25 am Friday till next Sunday morning. Mars in your sign squares Saturn Monday evening; you could be accident-prone today so keep alert and watch your step. A sextile to Mars in Gemini on Tuesday morn can fuel a friendly rivalry or a team effort. Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday; see notes at top. Saturday gets off to a rocky start when Mercury-Saturn square Moon in Gemini; you may have gotten messages garbled on where to meet. But the afternoon and evening sail along under a Moon trine Jupiter-Neptune; you might be on or near the water, or at a film fest, but at any rate having a great time.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Moon in Taurus sextiles Venus in Cancer late Wednesday; good for a date or party, tho hard to skip noshing on sweets. Best days this week are when Moon is in Taurus, Wednesday till early Friday. You may be able to mentor a Taurus friend, and help him or her to see the business opportunities hiding in a changing landscape.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Monday has very sociable Moon-Venus aspect, tho your possessiveness may be easily ignited and totally misplaced. The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo early Tuesday; this fiery combo can light up the room and inspire the staff. Leos make good executives, (and 'kings'), but try to be one of those 'enlightened despots'! You get better performance from staff and crew when you outline the goal rather than the exact process. And be generous with top performers Your best days this week are when the Moon is in Aries, Sunday night till Tuesday night.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Catch up with the latest news with a Taurus on Thursday morning when the Moon trines Mercury in Virgo; an early coffee or run sounds good. Moon trines Saturn in Virgo midday Thursday; this is a good time to start any disciplined regimen such as losing that 'baby fat' or starting a daily swim. You may also benefit from lunching with an older person, a mentor type. Double-check details inre meeting a friend Saturday morning; I see crossed wires otherwise, and you could miss out on a fabulous day.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Tuesday you may be in the spotlight, whether making a presentation or a sales call. Nice aspects to Aries, your solar seventh house, to Mars and Jupiter-Neptune. Wear a cool blue, maybe with a red accent. Show 'em how they benefit by employing your smoothly competent company for whatever it is you do. Moon in Gemini this week is good, too, especially Saturday when you may even fly off for a vacation.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Midday Monday provides a sweet opportunity to socialize, just remember not to tease anyone because people just don't appreciate that kind of stuff. Also late Wednesday provides a similar 'op' to make connections; due to the late hour I guess email or phone are the most likely medium. Late Thursday evening you can give/receive a real surprise to/from a child or romantic partner. Creative expression and games are also favored that evening.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Mars in Gemini squares Saturn Monday evening; you could be accident-prone today so keep alert and watch your step. The Moon in Aries trines Sun in Leo early Tuesday; combined with your natal fire planets, this grand fire trine can sure inspire staff or a company to pursue a grand ambition. Sag aims high, and you are able to not only reach higher than anyone thought you ever would, but also inspire others to achieve far more than they could imagine.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – This looks like a quiet week for you, Cappy, which is I'm sure just fine with you. You may even have a vacation planned just camping or hiking. You like simple and rustic accommodations. I knew a Capricorn at work once, who liked to rough it as much as possible because, he said, it made him appreciate what he had all the more once he got back to the city. So count your blessings, and have a great week.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – You'll enjoy lunch with friends under a sextile to the Moon on Tuesday; they may have deep pockets and be in a generous mood. Perhaps scheduling a luncheon with donors would be beneficial for your non-profit group. Mars in Gemini trines Jupiter in Aquarius at midday Thursday; see notes at top. Aquarius is busiest on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, which gives you a convenient breather to catch up on chores and messages on the in-between days.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is still in Pisces as the week begins, with a conjunction to Uranus Sunday morning. You may feel terribly upset over a little thing, and retreat to your private corner of the world to get your head together. Try to put things in perspective. Watch your step and drive defensively on Monday evening; you'll want to keep alert so don't even have a wine with dinner. Saturday's aspects are great for being in or near the water, and I know you love to swim.
