Your Milky Way Horoscope July 25-31, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

There's a Full Moon on the agenda for Sunday
, July 25 at 9:37 pm, at 3 degrees Aquarius exactly. A Full Moon seems wasted on airy Aquarius, doesn't it? All those moonbeams and stardust have a hard time meshing with this cold, dry, mental sign. And yet Aquarius can be so sentimental over loved ones; you've no better, steadfast friend, brother, or spouse. This lunation features a Moon sextile to Jupiter and Uranus in Aries, so expect innovation and pioneering leadership.

Saturn opposes Uranus at 1:07 pm Monday, and then Mars opposes Uranus at 9:31 am Friday. Bill Meridian says that Saturn-Uranus aspects have historically been very challenging in business situations. Saturn is structure, and Uranus topples or collapses that structure, or at least shakes it up. On a personal level, let me add that Mars, Uranus, and Saturn together can break bones (Saturn) or cause other injuries and accidents (Uranus). Mars adds the danger of fire or heat, and Uranus rules mechanical and electrical items. Be safety conscious, and drive defensively.

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 – The Sun in Leo (in your solar fifth house) trines Jupiter in Aries at 7:30 am Monday; this favors creativity in the arts, sports and games, romance, dealing with children, and gambling. The Moon is in Aries from 4:42 pm Friday afternoon thru the weekend. A Moon-Uranus conjunction can upset your feelings Friday, perhaps the commute home is especially trying. The Moon opposes Mars-Saturn in Libra Friday evening; you can feel very frustrated and trapped; people are more likely to say 'yes' early Saturday or on Sunday evening. The Moon-Sun trine about 9 am Saturday is especially lucky with romance and children.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar sixth and twelfth houses. Try to stay out of hospitals! But seriously, take care of your health, and keep a sharp eye for safety issues in the workplace. A Mercury-Neptune opposition afflicts the home-career axis; possibly water damage may shut down the office, or more likely communications will be garbled. A Mercury-Pluto trine in earth signs makes a grand trine with natal planets early Friday; you may write something rather profound, Tau. Run it by someone you trust.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Venus in your solar fourth house sign Virgo brings enjoyment from parties and female guests. Perhaps you can create your own coffee club in your kitchen. Early Friday has Mercury in your fourth with aspects that prompt deep discussions of philosophy and other wisdom. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar fifth and eleventh houses. You may experience sudden breaks with friends or romantic partners. Don't say anything you can't take back.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar fourth and tenth houses, the ones ruling home and career. Your job may experience sudden breaks or layoffs; arguments or accidents may ensue at home. Hey, just because some unfavorable events happen at work, doesn't mean you take things out on each other at home. And as always, keep an eagle eye out for safety issues. The Moon in your solar tenth house on Friday may be especially tense; perhaps a bubble bath would be a good idea after work.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Monday am commute suffers from a Mercury-Neptune opposition; check detours online before leaving house. Also, take any rumors with a grain of salt. The Sun in Leo trines Jupiter in Aries at 7:30 am Monday; this favors publishing, legal, education or religious matters. Perhaps you get a green light for a manuscript. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar third and ninth houses. Be careful what you put on Facebook, because that stuff travels all over. It might be well to upgrade your internet security in general.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury enters Virgo, one of its homes, on Tuesday afternoon. You may get engrossed in a fascinating book about alternative health late into the night. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar money houses (2, 8). It may be time to slay the debt (Mars) dragon, or assist others to do so. Money may come from foreign (Uranus) sources. You may have to bite the bullet and accept unemployment compensation, altho Virgos REALLY hate to do so. Sources of credit may be cut off, thru no fault of your own.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar first and seventh houses. This may be distressing but marriages and partnerships are apt to come to sudden ends. Just close a chapter of your life with as much grace as possible, and embrace the freedom to meet all kinds of people. Someone very unusual may come into your life, possibly a foreigner (Uranus). Saturday morning may be especially frustrating, when Mars conjuncts Saturn in your sign. Perhaps sticking to routine would be better.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Friday's Mercury-Pluto trine affects your solar eleventh-third houses, at almost the same Merc is inconjunct Jove in Aries; a club meeting may inspire you to try your hand at something new. It may even become an avocation for you. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar health houses (6 and 12). Try to avoid hospitals! Take care to guard your health, although some emergency surgery may be unavoidable. Size up the safety situation wherever you are.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar fifth and eleventh houses. You may experience sudden breaks with friends or romantic partners. Don't say anything you can't take back. Uranus in the fifth can bring windfalls, but probably not till Mars and Saturn move off the aspects. Ceres in Sag receives a favorable aspect Tuesday morn; offer treats at a work break. Ceres is unfavorably aspected tho on Thursday night; perhaps a dinner out disagrees with you.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar fourth and tenth houses of home and career. You may feel whipsawed between home and work, unable to concentrate on either one. You may have to leave company-sponsored housing, or the company transfers you. On Sunday, Pluto in your sign is squared by Jupiter; you can receive a big lift if only in a new philosophical attitude. Pluto also gets a pleasant sextile from the Moon Wednesday morn; share break time with a kind friend. Friday morn features a Mercury trine to your Pluto; you can be exceedingly influential so be careful how you phrase things in interviews or articles.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius from 3:38 pm Sunday till early Wednesday. Good advice on Sunday afternoon from an elder, scientist, or mentor. Laugh with friends the same night. Try not to believe any rumors on Wednesday. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar third and ninth houses of communications, politics, and education. Be careful what you put on Facebook, because that stuff travels all over. It might be well to upgrade your internet security in general.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 4 am sharp Wednesday till Friday afternoon. That morning you may lean towards just dropping an insurance but get advice before losing your whole investment. You may not want to hear what a spouse has to say that afternoon, but a friend may find a better way of stating the same general idea in the evening. The Mars-Saturn opposition to Uranus affects your solar money houses (2 and 8). You may have to accept UI, you may have to go into credit repair counseling (see free resources through your state website). Sources of credit may be cut off, thru no fault of your own.
