Your Milky Way Horoscope Jan. 17-23, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

The Moon-Jupiter conjunction happens at 1:22 am Monday in Pisces; this poses a huge opportunity for both mutable signs (Pisces, Gemini, Virgo, Sag) but also the water signs Pisces, Scorpio, and Cancer. You will all feel more optimistic and have more courage to move forward. Those with sextiles and trines to this conjunction will have to make more of an effort to take advantage of it, and those with squares will be forced to change or languish in the wake of an onrushing present.

Venus enters Aquarius on Monday at 9:35 am; the Sun follows suit on Tuesday at 11:28 pm. Venus in Aquarius can mean objective understanding and acceptance; it can also mean that one refuses to establish personal relationships because you either believe in universal love or because you just are unable to relate to anyone on a personal level. This Venus is best placed here for those who are in fields such as teaching or public speaking, where you can share your gifts without becoming personally involved with your audience. It does help foster relationships between equals.

Sun in Aquarius: theme song is “I Gotta Be Me.” Aquarius is probably best as a friend and supportive sibling, although they are capable of being committed and sentimental spouses. They can also drive others nuts with their contrariness, which is just another expression of their need to be different. But they have a gift for honoring the uniqueness of others, whether they are their children, siblings or colleagues at work. They can get groups to work together harmoniously without trying to dominate the situation.

Jupiter enters Pisces at 9:10 pm Sunday, Dec. 17. Jupiter is exalted in this sign, but don't let that swell your head, Pisces. A weak personality can be lost in a state of helpless stagnation, wondering why society is so far from the visionary glory of a Utopia. But if you can enjoy your life moment to moment and co-create your reality with the help of your God or the mysterious Universe, then you can have that vision constantly created at every moment. Helping others to realize their potential gives you true joy. Trust in the Universe and its laws, and you can reap a life full of intrinsically rewarding activities.

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 1:36 pm Wednesday till Friday night. Wednesday goes great under a sextile from the Moon to Sun and Venus in your solar eleventh house. You work well with friends, and enjoy a get-together that evening or a club meeting or other group event. You may feel frustrated by the end of the night due to a Moon-Pluto square; you feel your input is not heard or that the group has made a poor decision. Thursday starts off with a communications misstep but the rest of the day is quite favorable, as the Moon trines Mars and energy is high. An after-work swim in a heated pool looks awfully tempting on Friday.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 11:39 pm Friday thru the weekend. The Moon squares Sun in Aquarius early Saturday, which may be an unfortunate way to kick off the weekend. But get things off your chest and clear the air; it will make the rest of the weekend a million times better. An inconjunct to Saturn about 8 am makes you wonder if the experts know what they are doing (the answer of course is no). But that can be profitable for you if you bet against the established wisdom. A trine to Mercury about 5 pm helps you study for exams, or deal with legal or publishing matters; you could find an agent to make something happen for you. About ten pm, a square to Mars in Leo presents conflict but also opportunity; speak your opinions but do not bait the lion.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon-Jupiter conjunction happens at 1:22 am Monday; this poses a huge opportunity for you if you have plans for the day. You will feel more optimistic than you have felt in years, and ready to move forward in every way. Jupiter's entry into your solar tenth house of career is a great boon for all Twins. Step up career efforts such as marketing yourself to your target; but heck, Jupiter just might help you luck onto your market in spite of yourself. You may rise to a position of greater responsibility than you thought possible.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Aries, your career house, from Wed.-Fri. A trine from the Moon to Mars in your money house occurs about 3 pm Thursday; you may earn or receive your bonuses or overtime, or even get promoted into a better-paying position. The Venus trine to Saturn affects your fourth house of home and family; perhaps you luck onto some antiques at a steal of a price to decorate your home with, possibly a member of your household gets a lucky break. Actually the whole week should be quite comfortable for you, since all the signs the Moon occupies are harmonious to yours. Jupiter's entry into Pisces is a great boon to you in 2010; its occupation of your solar ninth house promises rewards for those going back to school or entering the teaching profession.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Jupiter enters your solar eighth house this week. Jupiter here may provide some relief if you have suffered from lack of health insurance, from non-payment by the insurance provider, or from inability to get coverage. You may also benefit from a legacy left in a will, altho I would not hold my breath till your loaded great-aunt Aggie keels over. This house may also rule loans such as that on a home, so you could possibly re-finance at a lower rate or get some kind of easier payment plan under the Obama bill.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Jupiter's entry into your opposite sign this week bodes well for those planning to make public appearances or take a more high-profile professional level. It can also portend a marriage to a very high-profile personality, possibly someone in the public eye or in the medical or legal profession. The Sun and Venus enter Aquarius, your solar sixth house of health and avocation. A hobby (sixth house) may become a second source of income (Venus). Your health can take an upward swing, if you have been taking care of yourself and eating sensibly.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Sun and Venus enter Aquarius, your solar fifth house, this week. Children and the creative arts cheer you and provide healthy outlets for your need for beauty and love. Venus in Aquarius trines Saturn in Libra about 1 am Friday. Either Thursday or Friday favor discussion of where your romance is heading (toward a serious commitment or towards a breakup). A sense of duty may accompany the discussion. The Moon in your opposite sign Aries (Wed.-Fri.) may be uncomfortable for you, and the rest of the week force you into making adjustments.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun and Venus enter your solar fourth house of home and family. Beautifying your home becomes a priority now, tho I am not sure if it is just an attempt to fight off the winter doldrums. You might bring flowers home from the grocery store, and play DVDs of romances. Jupiter enters your solar fifth house of love and creativity and sports. Betting on sports events may pan out better than the stock market. You may suddenly have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to prospective mates or beaux, and they will be very attractive and accomplished people.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Moon-Jupiter conjunction happens at 1:22 am Monday; this poses a huge opportunity for you if you have plans for the day. You will feel more optimistic than you have felt in years, and ready to move forward in every way. The Sun and Venus enter your solar third house of siblings and communications; you may find it easier to express affection and warm regards for your siblings and other relatives. Also you may find some way of using the internet or plain old signage to send love out into the world; lord knows we all need it. Jupiter's entry into your solar fourth house of home and family promises rewarding relationships with the whole extended clan. You may start or add to your own family; you may even work on tracing your family history.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Your life is changing radically, Capricorn, as the effects of the solar eclipse on Jan. 15 takes hold. Please see special column on the eclipse. Jupiter passes out of your solar second house, where it has been protecting your money and other resources, and into the third house where your expertise in the information age may have you teaching, lecturing, or going back to school. Meanwhile the other benefic, Venus (along with the Sun) enters your solar second house. You may favor a special someone with a gift. Also a special female friend may help you to feel better about your own self-worth.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Sun and Venus enter your sign early this week. You will look and feel younger, even if the calendar says you are a year older. A trip to the salon (Venus) for a fresh look will lift your spirits and garner compliments (also Venus). You may find it easier to express love and affection toward your inner circle this month. Venus in Aquarius trines Saturn in Libra about 1 am Friday. Either Thursday or Friday favor discussion of where your romance is heading (toward a serious commitment or towards a breakup). A sense of duty may accompany the discussion. Perhaps being 'just friends' is not so bad, after all. On the other hand, marrying your best friend is a very smart move.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 1:17 am Monday till midday Wednesday. Wow, both the Moon and Jupiter enter Pisces within hours of each other (Sun. night and Mon. morn). That is a pretty powerful and optimistic conjunction and it will be interesting to see if things change for you literally overnight. A sextile from the Moon to Pluto the same morn also helps you take charge of your own life. Towards midday, it's a bit more challenging; a Moon-Saturn inconjunct makes you wonder whether the experts really know what they are doing. A Moon-Mercury sextile in the afternoon may bring a call or email from a woman you have not heard from in a while. Tuesday brings a Moon-Mars inconjunct when men and women need to make more of an effort to accommodate each other. A psychic dream may appear overnight when the Moon is conjunct Uranus.
