Your Milky Way Horoscope for July 18-24, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Hail, all hail, to Leo – The Sun enters the sign of the Lion at 6:21 pm on Thursday, July 22. A mature Leo avoids the pitfall of demanding attention whether or not they deserve it, and progresses to inspiring others to shine in a shared spotlight. The Sun's first aspect is a sextile to Saturn which has now re-entered Libra. Leos will have renewed ambition, and be able to set an agenda for themselves. You will be able to handle a detail work, possibly in a leadership position with a hobby club or philanthropic organization. Have you ever directed a play? This may be the year that you do so.

Saturn re-enters Libra at 11:10 am Wednesday. Libra is the sign of its exaltation so let's hope for a renewed sense of fair play and equality in the courts of the land. Enough of this garbage about favoring corporate interests (Capricorn) over that of the public.

Jupiter goes retrograde at 8:03 am Friday, at 3 degrees 24 minutes Aries. Retrogrades are not necessarily bad things, but one needs to pay attention to where they are in your natal chart and what is going on with you. Some things may need to be redone, or some issues come back to stir up your pot. Fire signs might try to set new projects in motion when the Moon is in Sag, to create a grand trine in fire signs, good for leadership and for inspiring others.

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 – Saturn enters your solar seventh house on Wednesday, where it emphasizes responsibility and mutual support in a stable relationship. Perhaps you finally make it legal, or you feel a sense of duty toward your partner. Other kinds of partnerships may be formalized, too, tho it may be unequal. Saturn says that one partner may be rather older or more experienced than the other. This is an advantage, in view of your impulsiveness. The Sun enters Leo on Thursday, bringing your personal warmth to bear in the arts, in romantic relationships, in sports, etc.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Saturn enters your solar sixth house on Wednesday, where a sense of duty helps you finish a job. It may indicate a tour of duty in the military, since the sixth house rules the military and government. Your health may suffer, and you may have to hew to a stern regimen in order to accomplish anything. The Sun in Leo enters your solar fourth house Thursday, prompting you to bring the sun indoors, with warm colors, lively children, or perhaps a little studio in the attic.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Saturn enters your solar fifth house, where it obliges you to develop your God-given talents. Or help others to develop THEIR talents. And you can be very good at that. The Sun in your solar third house may call upon you to be a spokesperson, perhaps doing interviews or handling press conferences. Your ruler Mercury is squared by the Moon in Monday morn; you might reschedule appointments for an easier trine on Thursday afternoon. Mercury trines Ceres in Sag on Wednesday night; you might call in to a gardening show on the radio for information, or chat with an expert in person.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Best days this week may be the ones with Moon in compatible Scorpio, Sun-Tues. Saturn enters your solar fourth house on Wednesday, forcing you to examine issues of personal security. Maybe you finally buy a house, after renting for years. Maybe you finally feel ready to settle down and start a family. The Sun in your solar second house helps you earn money through your personal efforts, perhaps in sales, or in emceeing a local talent show. The Moon in your opposite sign Capricorn on Friday receives squares; you may have a stressful day. You may have to assert yourself, which is sometimes the same thing, hey?

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Mercury in Leo trines Ceres on Wednesday night; you may teach or babysit youngsters, so don't make plans for cleaning the closet. The Sun enters Leo on Thursday. Shy Leos (yes, there are a few) may have an opportunity in the coming year to overcome their shyness and learn to share a place in the sun with friends and creative types. It is best not to move forward on financial matters Thursday, at least not until after the Sun enters your sign. Saturn enters your solar third house, and you realize a need to have your communications taken seriously. You might decide to go back to school, begin a teaching career, or write a book.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Saturn enters your solar second house on Wednesday, emphasizing security by possessing valuables. Saturn may challenge you to examine your ideas of security. The Sun in your solar twelfth house may make it easier for you to visit shut-ins or relatives in nursing homes. Your attention to detail can adjust their room for greater ease and comfort. Jupiter goes retrograde in your eighth house on Friday, where you may have to re-submit insurance claims or followup with a phone call. Venus in your sign trines the Moon in Capricorn on Saturday; you enjoy being in the garden or going on a nature hike.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Sunday begins with the Moon in Libra. It makes a square to the Sun at 6 am; squabbles are likely to blow over quickly. The Moon trines Neptune at mid-morning; enjoy the music at a church service or festival, take an early swim, get out the easel and paints or your camera, or heck, visit the local wine shop. Saturn enters your sign on Wednesday. Saturn here can make you too concerned with trying to maintain perfectionism, to the point of being a Stepford wife. Afraid to rock the boat, you might swallow your objections when someone steps on you. Taking ownership of the harmony in your environment empowers you to rebalance your world. You're a beautiful person, Libra, inside and out.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 1:42 pm Sunday till Tuesday evening. A Moon-Chiron trine midday Sunday helps you find healing; try a health fair or a flotation tank. The inconjunct to Jupiter and Uranus in your solar sixth house of health also help you find healing. The Moon is habits, so perhaps you finally break a bad habit. Early Monday features a sextile to Venus, yum, but don't overdo the donuts. Find a good music station during your commute. A Moon-Mercury square Monday evening may lead you to misspeak so think before answering. A Sun-Moon trine Tuesday afternoon helps you with publishing or legal matters. Saturn entering your solar twelfth house urges you to manifest your private dream.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Moon is in Sag from 7:48 pm Tuesday till Friday morn. The Moon squares Venus Wednesday evening; better not make a date for tonight. A Moon trine Venus midday Saturday is much better. A Sun-Saturn sextile on Thursday helps you settle a legal matter for a club you belong to. Or perhaps you introduce the club president to a publisher for the annual cookbook project. A Sun-Uranus trine on Friday morn favors launching a website or book tour, especially if natal planets tie in with it. Awesome! Saturn entering your solar eleventh house prompts a desire to distinguish yourself among your peers.

CAPRICORN
- Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn from 4:39 am Friday till next Sunday afternoon. Cappy is NOT a weekend person! They like to work work work. You are in a serious frame of mind Friday evening with a Moon-Pluto conjunction; you might spend the evening asking yourself some soul-searching questions. The Moon trines Venus midday Saturday; this favors spending quality time with loved ones. You might spend part of the day gathering community support for a petition expressing a value (Venus) close to your heart. Saturn enters your solar tenth house where it prompts the desire to be seen as an authority on something. (Use super powers only for good.)

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Saturn enters Libra in your solar ninth house of publishing, law, religion and national politics on Wednesday. It is possible you take a high position in academia or law, such as a judgeship. You may merely work long hours as a clerk or court reporter, but I think that you may be called on to share your knowledge or love of learning. The Sun enters your opposite sign on Thursday; you may be in the public eye or in the news in some way, or your spouse may be the one in the spotlight.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Best days this week may have Moon in compatible Scorpio, Sun-Tues. Spend time on creative outlets Sunday. Do someone a favor under a Moon-Venus sextile Monday morning, like bringing in treats for the office. A Sun-Moon trine on Tuesday may tie in with natal planets for a grand trine in water signs. Express yourself; write a poem or a song, or put on your iPod and dance to the music. Saturn enters Libra in your solar eighth house on Wednesday, where it requires you to hew to a high level of integrity.
