Your Milky Way Horoscope May 30-June 5, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

On Sunday, May 30, Saturn makes its Direct Station at 27 degrees 50 minutes of Virgo, at 2:09 pm. Virgo natives can begin to breathe again, knowing that Saturn's time in their sign will soon be up. (Soon being defined as late July, 2010.) Matters that had hung in limbo may finally be on their way to a final resolution. Meantime, enjoy the holiday weekend.

Trading places with Saturn on the injured reserve list (aka retrograde status) is our old goodtime pal, Neptune. He goes retrograde at 2:48 pm on Memorial Day, Monday, May 31, at 28 degrees 42 minutes of Aquarius. If I were you, I would be hyper-conscious of safety, and have a map in hand if traveling. Neptune is not particularly hazardous, but he will get you lost, and he will help you lose track of what you are doing. So when you are standing at the charcoal grill, for gosh sakes do not lean your hand on the thing, do not splash liquids onto the grill, do not let your 5-yr-old try to flip the burgers. And since Neptune has an affinity for liquids, watch your alcoholic intake and be careful if swimming. This goes without saying if you are near a pool anyway, but it bears repeating!

Mars in Leo opposes Neptune in Aquarius at 1:52 pm on Friday, June 4. They are at 28 degrees of their signs. Late degrees of any sign can be very powerful, so if you have contacts or aspects to any natal planets, take heed. Mars-Neptune oppositions typically sap one's energy, bring on the scam artists, and weaken your resolve and self-confidence. Treat any infections promptly or it can easily become a chronic condition. One's resistance may be low; anyone with a predisposition to diabetes needs to monitor their blood sugar. Double-check instructions for prescription drugs to avoid overdosing. You may feel very insecure and discouraged under this transit, but please try this exercise: make a list of all your accomplishments in life, starting from learning how to walk.

Looking ahead to Sunday, June 6: Jupiter enters Aries at 2:28 am. Sound the trumpets and bang the drums, the Rams are getting ready to roll. You thought Arians were a rowdy, noisy bunch before, well shazam! They are gonna be darn near impossible now! Arians are an irrepressible bunch, much like the Unsinkable Molly Brown. Go ahead and wear red; it suits you better than any other sign.

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 – You have so much to look forward to! Jupiter will enter Aries next Sunday, June 6, so plan for a rip-roaring summer of fun, fun, fun! Just take care not to gain weight, because Jupiter does tend to overdo at the dinner table. Meantime, the Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar fifth-eleventh house axis. Avoid lending friends any money, because they are probably not telling you the real reason they need it. And you know how lending stuff tends to end more friendships than anything else. Best days are likely moon in Aquarius, Tues-midday Thur.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Invite others over for dinner or a late coffee under a Moon-Mercury trine Sunday evening. You will have lots to talk about, and I bet you find you have even more in common than you thought. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar fourth and tenth houses; you may want to be at home while at work, or vice versa. Also Mars in the fourth is always a tip to watch for fire safety; inspection is a good idea. Best days are likely moon in Cappy, Sun-Mon or in Pisces, midday Thurs-Sat.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - An employee appreciation event late Monday is very enjoyable under Moon-Jupiter rays. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar third and ninth houses; this can scramble communications and stress Geminis to the max. Miscommunication can even lead to arguments (Mars) and assigning blame (Neptune); please don't sweat the small stuff because stuff happens to everybody. Best days are likely moon in Aquarius, Tues-midday Thur.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – You will want to reach out and touch somebody on Sunday when the Moon opposes Venus in Cancer. The other person may or may not want to be touched, may complain you are smothering him/her, but do it anyway. Everyone needs some love. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar second and eighth houses. Use every caution when dealing with money; better yet, delay decisions till you have thoroughly researched the people involved. Best days are likely moon in Pisces, midday Thurs-Sat.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Read the notes above regarding the Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday. This is not the time for entering the Iron Man contest, obviously. However, I might add that Neptune in your solar seventh house can add an aura of glamor, above your usual megawatt-voltage personality. Mars in Leo is quite brave; you may become a hero in your own hometown for bravery (Mars) and inspire (Neptune) others.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – I see a work party on the holiday weekend rather than a sit-in-the-hammock kind of weekend. Ask able-bodied folks over to help out and then treat them to your amazing dinners. Saturn is making a station at 27 degrees of your sign this weekend, so I imagine that self-discipline is high on your list of priorities right now. You can certainly accomplish a great deal in a short span if you stick to your schedule. Best days are likely moon in Cappy, Sun-Mon or in Pisces, midday Thurs-Sat.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Have your eye on a special someone? Ask him or her out for a date late Tuesday when the Moon trines the Sun, symbolizing harmonious male-female relationships. (also the moon will be in your solar fifth house of romance; that combined with your natal planets should form a chatty grand trine in air). The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar fifth and eleventh houses; male friends may try to cheat you on some wild investment scheme. Best days are likely moon in Aquarius, Tues-midday Thur.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Memorial Day favors an outing with an older friend who can introduce you to a new game; it might even be profitable. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar fourth and tenth houses; you may want to be at home while at work, or vice versa. Also Neptune in the solar fourth house is a tip to watch for water leaks, whether from plumbing, a roof leak, or a faulty meter. There is a chance you might take up home brewing, or install a wet bar. Best days are likely moon in Cappy, Sun-Mon or in Pisces, midday Thurs-Sat.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Saturn goes direct Sunday in your solar tenth house of career; executive responsibilities may be bestowed or restored to you. You may even be in the running for recognition by your peers. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar ninth and third houses. For some of us, this will scramble phone calls and messages. For others, local and national politics will unusually seamy. Best days are likely moon in Aquarius, Tues-midday Thur.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The week begins with Moon in Capricorn, till early Tuesday. The Moon opposes a grasping Venus in Cancer on Sunday afternoon. Your spouse/partner may be more needy or demanding than usual; humor him or her. A Moon-Mercury trine Sunday night favors a quiet date with lots of opportunity to chat with a Taurus sweetie. Monday features a Moon-Saturn trine; you can get a lot of work done with a Virgo lawyer, professor, or other pro. A late night sextile to Jupiter favors enjoying the best things in life. The Mars-Neptune opposition on Friday affects your solar second and eighth houses. Use every caution when dealing with money; better yet, delay decisions till you have thoroughly researched the people involved.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 1:08 am Tues. till midday Thurs. Tuesday has easy aspects: a sextile to Uranus in Aries brings surprises from a friend, and a trine to the Sun in Gemini may mean a late chat or date with a Twin. An aspect to Venus in your solar sixth house on Wed. may signify getting control over your sweet tooth. A Moon-Mercury square on Wed. p.m. can make communications difficult; wait till Sat. to try to smooth things over. Do not try to overdo physically on Thurs. morning; the Mars-Neptune opposition is in effect.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Spending Memorial Day evening with friends will be very congenial under a Moon-Jupiter sextile. The Moon is in Pisces from 1:34 pm Thursday till the wee hours next Sunday. A Moon-Ceres-Chiron aspect on Thurs. brings a friend who offers health tips or a healthy recipe to share. The Pisces Moon is square the Sun in Gemini on Friday evening; don't waste energy on argument or struggle. Try to look upon differences of opinion as a chance to exercise your debate skills, in an impartial way. Saturday brings a midday Moon-Mercury sextile; visit a local bookstore or library to find the info you need.
