Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 8-14, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

The week begins with Venus and Saturn conjunct in Libra at 1:24 pm Sunday. Venus will be joined by Mars on Aug. 20, so try not to be too broken-hearted if you and a sweetie go your separate ways this week. Love will be in the air again. Actually, Venus and Saturn can indicate a formalization of a relationship, like in a marriage license, or at least an engagement.

STAND BACK, everybody! Feisty asteroid Juno hits 5 degrees Leo Friday, conjunct brave Regulus. (at least the traditional degree of Regulus) Women may suddenly be called on to be extremely brave and rescue husbands or kids, or they might unleash a rant online – or something! This is a real take-the-bull-by-the-nose-ring position, I think. STAND BACK and nobody gets hurt. Otherwise, Juno in Leo is pretty feisty and magnetic and fascinating to the opposite sex. Juno in Leo is a great partner and you will never be bored.

Uranus enters Pisces in retrograde motion at 11:36 pm Friday. Pisces natives may have some upsets in their lives but let's hope that it is nothing really serious. Pisces tends to make mountains out of molehills anyway. Hmm, let me try to remember what Uranus in Pisces was like, way back in May. It was not in a work sector for me, and I recall when it entered Aries, a work sector, I got some well-paid work for a short time anyway. Uranus will be in Pisces for the rest of the year, natch. Jupiter will retrograde back into Pisces on Sept. 8, on a Virgo New Moon. That looks interesting, hey?

The asteroid Vesta enters the relationship sign Libra. This is actually a pretty poor placement IMHO because she is too willing to be a martyr to her partner. This is alright if the Vesta person is putting her spouse thru school with the understanding that the other spouse is going to reciprocate. But too often the other party divorces soon after establishing him or herself in a good-paying job. Not nice. This is an extreme example. But Vesta here is just deadly to a long-term relationship because men tend to lose interest in women who sacrifice too much of themselves.
Monday's New Moon in Leo at 17 degrees is very tough. Pluto in Capricorn is square to Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus, and sesqui-quadrate the lights in Leo. What a lineup, folks. Crunch time all over so please try to be kind and help someone thru a tough month. I wrote some worst-case scenarios for many signs this week so please take them with a grain of salt, but do keep some cash on hand for emergencies like the one that the stars show this week.

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 – Your opposite sign is getting whacked this week as Venus is the nut cracked in between Saturn and Mars. Try to be kind and offer helping hands. Your spouse may unload her frustrations in your vicinity when Juno sextiles them Friday, but I think you kinda like a fiery chick. At least she will be clear on what she wants and that will make things easier for you, too. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in romantic relationships, endings as well as beginnings. Vesta enters your solar seventh; that Juno romantic interest sure looks good to you as a marriage prospect.

TAURUS
- April 20-May 20 - The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in home and family life. Cash (Venus) and debt (Mars) are limiting (Saturn) forces right now, semisquare the lights. This can be a very tough time for you if you have been waiting for things to get better, because they are not getting better fast enough. Juno has entered your solar fourth house also. You prefer traditional roles, and may want parental approval of your mate. OK, so take him or her home to meet the folks. Vesta enters your solar sixth house of health and work; you may donate some time to an organization, or privately work on clearing your own energy field.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in communicating with relatives and siblings. Juno there may indicate a sibling starts to demand better communications. There may also be an interest in providing info about etiquette, like how to write formal letters. The lights are semisquare Venus (values), and so I think the key here is to ask yourself where you can start to improve communicating your values to others. Vesta enters your solar fifth house of romantic partners; this is too self-sacrificing a placement, and I hope that you resist giving up your own needs to wait on someone else. Maybe you DO have to help out short term, but make clear what kind of arrangement this is and for how long.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer as the week begins till Sunday night. Sunday is spent rearranging things and attitudes under inconjunct aspects. An inconjunct in the am to Ceres suggests you adjust recipes or ingredients; maybe your goal is to reduce weight or reduce carbs. An inconjunct to Neptune in the afternoon suggests you adjust alcohol; perhaps beer is not worth the calories right now and makes you feel fuzzy-headed besides. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your money house. The semisquare to Venus is very apropos, as she rules cash and the dollar. You may have a cash squeeze; make sure to have enough in hand (and in the checking acct.) before the weekend is out.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 7:23 pm Sunday till Tuesday evening. You feel like practicing jokes at dinner hour under a Moon-Uranus trine Sunday. Classics appeal to you later that night; perhaps a concert is on the agenda. A New Moon is at 17 degrees Leo at 11:08 pm. The Sun and Moon are semi-square Venus (who is uncomfortably squeezed between Saturn and Mars, ouch), and sesqui-quadrate Jupiter in Aries and Pluto in Capricorn. Be very careful not to bounce checks (Venus) this week. And try to express some love to everyone you meet. You may have problems integrating your personal philosophy (Jupiter) and personal power (Pluto) into everyday actions, but there's the challenge, as they say. Venus also squares Pluto; this can mean an obsession, or it can mean that power plays ruin a relationship.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Venus-Saturn conjunction in your sign on Sunday night can make you a bit blue over love or money or both. Be a grownup and take responsibility for your love life. If you need real help, try online explanations of why guys react the way they do. They pick up on women's feelings very readily, and tend to avoid women who are always negative. The Moon is in Virgo from 7 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. A Moon-Pluto trine late Tuesday helps you take control of part of your life; possibly you have to lay down the house rules for the kids' edification. Wednesday is totally Mercury; a conjunction to the Moon helps you make small talk if you are networking, and aids clarity in all communications. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your solar twelfth house of self-undoing. Perhaps you just feel such an overwhelming need to get out of the house and do ANYTHING but look at the four walls. Just take a friend who will pull you away before you party too hearty.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 6:43 pm Thursday till Saturday night. Frankly, Libra, Thursday night looks really crummy. The Moon is conjunct Saturn, opposite Jupiter-Uranus, and square Pluto. This looks ugly. However, it does give you the mental and emotional toughness to see things with brutal clarity, and find opportunities. Friday is so much nicer, with a Venus-Mars conjunction in your sign. You deserve to make a nice memory for yourself and a honey. Hey, a picnic in the park is a nice ritual for some couples. Or even on the living room floor. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in eleventh house of friends and clubs. A semisquare to Venus may indicate that the cost of membership or activities is draining your purse.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon enters Scorpio at 8:26 pm Saturday. The Moon applies to an inconjunct to Jupiter in Aries and a sextile to Pluto in Capricorn. You may have to make some adjustments to health regimens or work schedules, possibly under doc's orders. Pluto can introduce you to the local power players, possibly in the old smoke-filled room in back. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your career house. A semisquare to Venus may indicate that you need to price your services correctly.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Friday the Moon connects Venus then Mars in your solar eleventh house of friends and groups. Cupid may strike while goofing around with friends, or at a club meeting. Don't skip this week's social. An older person may introduce you. The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your ninth house of publishing, law, college, etc. A legal case may come to nothing and you still have to pay fees or fines. Pluto in your solar second house is squaring half the planets, so make sure you have ready cash etc for covering bills.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your eighth house of joint assets. Pluto in your first house is squaring half the sky, so you may be forced into something pretty drastic this month. You may have suffered some loss of reputation, or are unhappy over downsizing your home. Vesta enters your solar tenth house where you may wish to donate your talents to a charitable cause. Juno has entered your solar eighth house; you are attracted to a mate who has his or her own resources. Perhaps that means you move into her house, and sell or rent your own.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your solar seventh house of partners. An exciting person may cross your radar and demand to be taken seriously. Meanwhile Pluto in your twelfth house is squaring half the sky; watch your back for secret enemies and share only as much info as people need to know. Protect files and business records from prying eyes and fire. Vesta enters your solar ninth house; you may wish to make a donation to your alma mater, or make a book available for free.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The Leo New Moon on Monday activates a new phase in your solar sixth house of health and work. Due to the squares from Pluto to planets in your money houses, it is possible that you may have to go back to work, or liquidate assets, to pay off debts (Mars). Vesta enters your solar eighth house; you may donate some assets to joint accounts; make sure this is really what you want to do.
