Your Milky Way Horoscope April 25 - May 1, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

We are now solidly into Taurus, the sign of the Bull. Taureans share their sun sign with famous people like Martha Graham, Fred Astaire, Audrey Hepburn, Shirley Maclaine, Irving Berlin, and Margot Fonteyn. Ancient Egyptians believed that at the winter solstice, the sky goddess Nuit gave birth to a newborn calf, the Sun. The Sun emerged from where the starry stream splits into two, forming the Cygnus Rift; the sun appears on the horizon at dawn at approximately Nuit's feet. Furthering the correspondence between humans and cows, is the fact that they share the same gestation period of 272 days, and that is also about the period between the spring equinox and the winter solstice. Some have pointed out that a sketch of a human uterus, with fallopian tubes and all, somewhat resembles that of a bovine skull. A herding society would have been well aware of the similarities between humans and their main food supply, cattle. Is it any wonder that Nuit and Hathor are cow-mothers, with crescent moons for horns?

On Monday at 7:23 pm, retrograde Saturn opposes Uranus in Pisces. In the outer world, the collapse or breakup of a symbolic building or group, or massive protests/riots, may dominate headlines. In your personal world, you are apt to want to rebel (Uranus) against the authorities (Saturn) or against unjust rules, or just leave your responsibilities behind. What is the point, you ask, of going to work every day when the only ones who profit are the credit card companies and the bank? A lot of people are asking themselves the exact same question. Well then, try going to work for yourself instead; it could work out.

This transit should ease by the end of May, but return when Saturn (in forward motion) again opposes Uranus (retrograde) in late July. This could be a frustrating year for a lot of us, so please try to give others the benefit of the doubt if they seem in bad moods.

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 Monday Uranus in your solar twelfth house opposes Saturn in your solar sixth house of health. You always feel the urge to strike out on your own anyway, but if you still repress any of your individuality, these unexpressed urges can strike back as health problems (often as heart problems). Make a point of getting back into an exercise regimen, because this helps work off frustrations and stresses, and Aries always feels better about himself when he is fit. Heck, take the whole family out for a hike. (PS- Uranus is going to enter your sign, and Saturn will re-enter opposing Libra, while Pluto squares both from Capricorn. This coming T-square will really force you to be your authentic self and also to deal with long-standing problems. Be awake for it.)

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – On Monday Uranus in your solar eleventh house opposes Saturn in your solar fifth house of romance-gambles-children. You may be tempted to resign from a club or organization, but reconsider till after the month's end. It's unfortunate that this is in your house of romance, because the passing mood is that you do not want anyone restricting you in any way. Look, relationships involve mutual bonds and mutual obligations. They are voluntary, and you get to write the 'house rules' just about any way you want. As long as you both agree to observe them as long as they work, and to rewrite them when it seems needed, everything's hunky dory.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - On Monday Uranus in your solar tenth house opposes Saturn in your solar fourth house. These are heavy-duty planets in basic sectors of your life. It will be awfully tempting to walk out of a mortgage that has you under water, or from a job that is unfulfilling. But both are processes, rather than finished works, on the way to achieving your life goals. You might in fact be happier in a smaller home, or in your own business, but move toward these objectives in as balanced and ethical a manner as you can.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - On Monday Uranus in your solar ninth house opposes Saturn in your solar third house. You may feel frustrations due to construction in your locality, possibly on the route to the college campus or to municipal offices. Also your car may be a source of problems, requiring repeated repairs, getting towed, or just eating oil. Get mechanical problems checked out promptly.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - On Monday Uranus in your solar eighth house opposes Saturn in your solar second house of finances. This seems like it may be better than it sounds; a spouse's legacy from his or her parents may be a windfall (Uranus) to you both. However, be sure to pay any proper taxes due on it, and shelter it using the best financial advice you can find. There is also the chance that your share of medical bills, after the insurance pays its share, can be quite a burden (Saturn).

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The week begins with the Moon in Virgo till late afternoon. The Moon opposes Jupiter early, tempting you to overdo everything. Moderation is the motto for Virgo, so hold to that. The Moon opposes Uranus and conjoins Saturn in early afternoon, producing feelings of restriction and rebellion. You may feel like kicking over the traces, but try to find some modest change you can adopt, so that you are not locked in to a soul-killing routine. It can be as simple as a new route to work, doing something with your non-dominant hand, finding a new radio station, or turning off the TV.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 4:16 pm Sunday till Tuesday evening. The Moon trines Venus in Gemini late Sunday afternoon; perhaps a trek to a college performance with a woman friend or daughter will cap your day. On Monday morning, events may alter your opinion of a Taurus coworker for the better. Tuesday afternoon is dreamy so either stick to your list of tasks, or write down your 'wish list' and tuck it in a drawer. The afternoon may also produce a tip on how to get more from your electronic gadgets.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 6:28 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. The Moon trines Chiron the healer this evening; schedule a session with a practitioner and you could gain new insights and real progress. Wednesday is Full Moon in Scorpio so set aside some time tonight to tune in to what is best for you to do this month. The Moon opposes a Sun-Mercury conjunction in Taurus; this favors a heart-to-heart chat with your life partner, who may be unusually talkative today. Lay your heart on the table that night and discuss your true needs.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Monday Uranus in your solar fourth house opposes Saturn in your solar tenth house of career; rebalance your career and home life in as ethical a manner as you can. The Moon is in Sag from 10:36 pm Thursday till next Sunday morn. The Moon opposes Venus Friday morning; get in touch emotionally with loved ones, even if you have to shout, “I love you, dammit!” Events of the day may alter your opinion of a Taurean. A Moon-Mars trine in the evening revs your energy levels; get out for a game of ball or a walk. A Moon-Jupiter square in early evening Saturday favors intellectual or philosophical interests; visit the library or chew the fat with similar friends over drinks.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - On Monday Uranus in your solar third house opposes Saturn in your solar ninth house. You may feel frustrations due to construction in your locality, possibly on the route to the college campus or to municipal offices. Also your car may be a source of problems, requiring repeated repairs, getting towed, or just eating oil. Get mechanical problems checked out promptly. If you get even the most routine legal notice or ticket, get proper advice on how best to resolve the matter.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - On Monday Uranus in your solar second house opposes Saturn in your solar eighth house. This seems like it may be better than it sounds; a spouse's legacy from his or her parents may be a windfall (Uranus) to you both. However, be sure to pay any proper taxes due on it, and shelter it using the best financial advice you can find. There is also the chance that your share of medical bills, after the insurance pays its share, can be quite a burden (Saturn).

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - On Monday Uranus in your solar first house opposes Saturn in your solar seventh house. This points to a major shakeup in your self-image, public image and in marriage or other partnerships. Uranus in the first house just wants to be free of any encumbrances, which is unfortunate because some of the richest experiences involve giving rather than taking. Saturn in the seventh house makes your spouse seem like the biggest villain, making impossible demands and milking you dry. The truth may be somewhere in between. Maybe a timeout would be wise.
