Your Milky Way Horoscope March 21-27, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

There are not a whole lotta major aspects this week. But there is good news for anyone who is looking to lose a few pounds or get fit (is that everybody?). The Sun (self) in Aries opposes Saturn (reducing; a strict regimen) in Libra, with Mars (exercise) in a helpful aspect to both, on Sunday. Sun trines Mars at 1:54 pm; Sun opposes Saturn at 8:37 pm; and Mars sextiles Saturn on Monday night at 11:53 pm. The fact that Mars is in Leo points to getting a good cardio workout from your new program. Saturn in the partnership sign of Libra suggests that having an exercise buddy or perhaps a personal trainer will help you stay on track.

A Grand Cross forms on Tuesday as the Moon in Cancer squares Saturn in Libra, Sun in Aries and then opposes Pluto in Capricorn. All the cardinal signs mentioned will be under stress, and awfully tempted to call it quits in whatever house issue is affected. Look at it this way: one chapter of your life may be ending, but another one is beginning just as the shoots of new grass are pushing up through the sod.

On Thursday at 11:45 pm, the Sun at 5 degrees of Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn. This is a frustrating and yet intriguing square. One may be faced with seemingly relentless pressure, yet one also has the power to reinvent oneself. In fact, you may be forced to renovate your inner or outer self, or be forced by authority figures to to explain yourself. You come to a crossroads; your choice which road to take, of course.

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 -- On Sunday, the Sun in Aries opposes Saturn in Libra; your partner says no, or calls it quits. An alternative scenario is that you embark on a training regimen (Saturn) to lose weight; Mars assists from compatible Leo, so fun sports may be part of your new program. Sun in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn late Thursday. This can be frustrating if authority figures step in and demand something from you, so take care to observe speed limits, etc. On the other hand, this aspect offers opportunities to reinvent yourself, kind of like Madonna has done (several times). Erase what you don't like: the spare tire, the mousy hair, whatever. You are eternally youthful inside so the 'outer you' ought to reflect that.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 -- Taurus often has real problems with gaining weight thru the years, so take the opportunity to start a successful regimen under the Sun-Saturn oppositon on Sunday. The Grand Cross on Tuesday touches your solar health houses (six and twelve) and education/communication houses (three and nine). The best possible outcome is that your creative talents, you embark on a career in healthcare or teaching. But your education (or funding thereof) may come to a screeching halt if you cannot find a way to cover tuition. One chapter may close but this makes room for another one to begin. Networking assumes higher priority and will produce likely options.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 -- The week begins with Moon in Gemini till the wee hours Tuesday. The Moon is inconjunct Pluto early Sunday; be careful who you confide in! The Moon-Jupiter square late Sunday may make you overdo; rise above your limitations instead with a daily affirmation online or by dialing a phone recording. The Moon-Venus sextile early Monday opens your day with beauty. A square to Uranus late Monday brings lotsa laughs, then a trine to Neptune helps you empathize. Consider joining with friends to control finances and debt; a nice way to start is with the ladies at FlyLady.org.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 -- The Moon is in Cancer from 2:16 am Tuesday till early Thursday. The Moon in Cancer squares Saturn in Libra and also Sun in Aries, then opposes Pluto in Capricorn, forming a Grand Cross on Tuesday. The day will feel like a pressure-cooker, but trines to Jupiter and Uranus on Wednesday bring help and repairs. Whatever events of Tuesday are, they may not happen to you personally but to people you care about, so don't start worrying just yet, OK? Use caution on Thursday when the Sun in Aries squares Pluto in Capricorn; career and partnerships matters can come to a head, or you may re-organize or re-capitalize.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 -- The Moon is in Leo from 5:39 am Thursday till Saturday morn. Mars, having gone direct in Leo on March 10, is joined by the Moon on Thursday at 8:15 am, and trines Sun in Aries the same afternoon. Whoosh, you become aware of a new spring in your step and a burst of energy. Find yourself a new project or offer to emcee a spring event. Friday offers trines from the Moon in Leo to Mercury and Venus in Aries; compliments and favors are exchanged. You may win some cash in a call-in contest. Be careful Saturday morn when Moon opposes Neptune since that can make you fuzzy-headed.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 -- Saturn in your solar second house becomes part of a stressful but short-lived grand cross on Tuesday. Perhaps a death or illness in the family spurs you to take better care of yourself, or your doctor issues orders to -- lose weight, quit smoking, whatever. The Moon is in Virgo from 6:57 am Saturday thru the weekend. Moon trines Pluto Saturday afternoon to help you regain control over some part of your life; perhaps you gain insights into how to motivate your children to help with chores, or you express yourself through creative outlets.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 -- The Moon in Cancer squares Saturn in Libra and also Sun in Aries, then opposes Pluto in Capricorn, forming a Grand Cross on Tuesday. The day will feel like a pressure-cooker, but trines to Jupiter and Uranus on Wednesday bring help and repairs. Use caution on Thursday when you may be called upon by authorities to provide paperwork or testimony. You may also have an opportunity to reinvent yourself, a la Madonna. Best days this week have the Moon in Gemini, Sunday thru Monday.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 --The Grand Cross on Tuesday touches your solar health houses (six and twelve) and education/communication houses (three and nine). The best possible outcome is that with your investigative talents, you embark on a career in medical or other scientific research. But your education (or funding thereof) may come to a screeching halt if you cannot find a way to cover tuition. One chapter may close but this makes room for another one to begin. Networking assumes higher priority and will produce likely options.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 -- The Grand Cross on Tuesday touches your solar money houses (two and eight) and home/career (five and eleven). The best possible outcome is that with hard work, you get a handle on financial issues. One chapter may close but this makes room for another one to begin. Networking assumes higher priority and will produce likely options. Sun square Pluto on Thursday can bring an opportunity to apply or lobby for funding for a grant to realize a creative project. Best days this week have the Moon in Gemini, Sunday and Monday, and also Moon in Leo Thursday and Friday.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 -- The Moon in Cancer squares Saturn in Libra and also Sun in Aries, then opposes Pluto in Capricorn, forming a Grand Cross on Tuesday. The day will feel like a pressure-cooker, but Moon trines to Jupiter and Uranus on Wednesday bring help and repairs. Possibly your spouse or partner will pitch in to clean up a mess. Prepare for a second whammy on Thursday when the Sun in Aries squares Pluto in your sign; you may have to report to authorities or provide documents. Make sure car insurance is up to date, at least. As explained at top of column, this aspect also gives you the opportunity and energy to make yourself over.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 -- The Grand Cross on Tuesday touches your solar health houses (six and twelve) and education/communication houses (three and nine). The best possible outcome is that with your organizational talents, you embark on a career in technology or engineering. But your education (or funding thereof) may come to a screeching halt if you cannot find a way to cover tuition. One chapter may close but this makes room for another one to begin. Networking assumes higher priority and will produce likely options.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 -- The Grand Cross on Tuesday touches your solar money houses (two and eight) and home/career (five and eleven). The best possible outcome is that with hard work, you get a handle on financial issues. One chapter may close but this makes room for another one to begin. Networking assumes higher priority and will produce likely options. Best days are probably when Moon is in Gemini, Sunday and Monday.
