Your Milky Way Horoscope April 4-10, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Venus at 5 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn late Sunday; love and sex can get very intense under this transit. Relationships may be transformed or you may gain new insights into each other. Someone may suddenly turn out to be a lot deeper than you thought, once you've had a good chat with him or her.

Mercury at 3 degrees Taurus squares Mars in Leo at 12:17 am Monday. Use logic and reason when dealing with things you desire. You may have to negotiate with others over getting time off to pursue your hobbies or go on club outings. You might really enjoy a spirited debate (formal or informal), too, but don't expect to change your opponent's mind.

Mercury at 5 degrees Taurus trines Pluto in Capricorn at 6:46 am Tuesday. This is excellent for research and detective work of any kind. Get out the deerstalker hat and gather your usual suspects together.

Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo (2:51 pm Wednesday, April 7), alas for Virgoans who were just beginning to relax. Time to tidy up any loose ends of matters unfinished when Saturn entered Libra last Oct. 29. You have until late July to get it done right this time, so get along there. At least the cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn) get a bit of a breather for the spring/summer.

Hey, got sick under a Sun square natal Mars transit. It ought to have given me a big burst of energy, but my bad habits and a bad batch of soup got me. Down I went with a case of food poisoning (I think). I needed the 'inner cleanse', like it or not. If one does not give an outlet for that Mars energy, one can easily get sick, so that is what happened to lazy me!

ARIES - March 20- April 19 - Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo (2:51 pm Wednesday, April 7). You have till late July to enjoy a breather.

CANCER - June 21- July 22 – On Monday your spouse is quite the tower-of-power; Moon conjunct Ceres and Pluto in Capricorn, Moon trine Mercury-Venus in Taurus. He/she can plant and harvest simultaneously, it seems. He may even show a rare artistic side, too. Saturn retrogrades back into Virgo (2:51 pm Wednesday, April 7).

VIRGO - Aug. 23- Sept. 22 – Sorry, Virgo, but Saturn decided he liked your modest, retiring self so much he is making a return visit this spring. Yes, starting this Wednesday and right thru late July you can expect your unwelcome guest to start using all your towels and raiding your refrig. Again. What can I say? Try to tie up any unfinished business from last October and make sure to do it right this time. I'm not nagging you or blaming you, just trying to help you plan how to use this period. Yes, he'll be gone by August, promise. I have aspirin if you need some.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23- Nov. 21 – Aspects to Mercury and Venus in Taurus, your solar seventh house of partners and the public, fill the week. You could possibly get in the public eye, as Mercury rules both interviews and the news. Saturn moves back into Virgo on Wednesday, your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs, where you may again benefit from consulting older people and mentors, or find a respected teacher till August. Wednesday is a contentious day, tho, with the Moon and Mars squaring your natal planets from either side; lie low and agree with everyone.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22- Jan. 19 - - The Moon is in Capricorn from 9 am Sunday till Wednesday morn. The Moon squares Saturn at 9:30 pm, giving rise to loneliness and emotional insecurity; reach out and touch somebody's hand, as the song says.

Us this time productively because it will be a lot harder to Get Things Done when Saturn afflicts you come August.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20- Feb. 17 - - Chiron is activated Easter day so it might be meaningful to send out a prayer for healing for yourself and the world. The Moon is in Aquarius from 8:51 am Wednesday till Friday night. A Moon-Saturn trine Wednesday morn is a good time to confer with a mentor or older person; you are serene and in control of your urges. This serenity may be tested under a Moon-Mars opposition that evening so take a deep breath. Moon conjunct Neptune 5:44 pm Friday can lead to fuzzy-head syndrome; stick to routine tasks.

PISCES - Feb. 18- March 19 - - The Moon squares Uranus Sunday afternoon; you may feel upset or just want to be alone for awhile.

Heirloom varieties may grab your attention.
