Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 22-28, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun enters Virgo at 1:27 am Monday
, the sign of the iconic maiden holding a sheaf of wheat. The woman in the symbol for Virgo has changed over the millennia from a girl of perhaps fifteen to an old maid of forty or so. Perhaps this is related to the precession? I read somewhere that the sign on the Spring Equinox used to be Virgo, when people planted their wheat. Now Virgo occurs in the fall, closer to the harvest. Is this change the reason for the alternation in the age of the archetype? I will have to put out a paper on this later, when I get my sources together.

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 Moon is in Aries from 10:49 pm Thursday till next Sunday morning. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction overnight Thursday can put you in a generous mood. Friday morning can be stressful with a possible confrontation with the boss; your hours may change or an assignment ended. Ask for reassignment to resolve bottlenecks because I think that may be your strong suit. The Moon opposes Mars and then Venus from midday to afternoon Saturday. Hmmm, might be a good time to schedule some quality time with that special someone.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Sun enters your solar fifth house of fun and romance early Monday. Let's hope that an interesting someone perks up your routine. The Sun then makes an inconjunct to Jupiter late Tuesday, when your losing streak turns to gold. Just be sure to get out before a Pluto aspect late Wednesday claims all your winnings. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Aries early Friday can bring a great boon to someone in your family circle. Health matters are on the agenda Saturday afternoon. Perhaps you visit a loved one in the hospital or nursing home, or have to go to one of those Minute Clinics.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Sun enters your solar fourth house of home and family, so you are likely to spend more time at home this month. A Sun-Jupiter inconjunct to your eleventh house may have you putting up a friend for a few days. There is a Moon-Jupiter conjunction Friday in Aries, so possibly your friend may be really generous in compensating you for your hospitality -- as he leaves. Your fifth and eleventh house axis is very active Saturday afternoon when the moon opposes Venus and Mars in Libra. Take a friend to the races or to the casino and celebrate each other's every little win.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Sun enters your solar third house of schools, communication, and neighbors. A new neighbor may move next door; take over a plate of cookies. A Sun-Jupiter inconjunct may mean that you pass along business cards from your employer (or the personnel dept) to him or her. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in your tenth house of career can signify public popularity, landing a big account, or acting as a mentor to someone at work. A family member may bring their significant other over to meet the family on Saturday.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Sun in Leo is inconjunct Uranus in Pisces Sunday evening; you may get an insight into what has been bothering you healthwise. Also you may get called in to work unexpectedly. The Sun enters your solar second house and can give your finances a brief boost; watch overspending. Also it may be a good time to find a financial advisor to teach you more skills in money management. A Sun-Jupiter conjunction in Aries on Friday brings a new lawyer, editor, professor, or pastor into your life, someone who will be very beneficial to you. The association may be brief (two years max) but productive. Try hanging out at a bookstore on Saturday afternoon, when Venus and Mars receive Moon-rays.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – An inconjunct between the Sun in Virgo and Jupiter in Aries late Tuesday may indicate a change for the better in your work situation. Also a hobby may earn you a measure of fame. Wednesday night features a Sun-Pluto trine in earth signs; you can take back control over your romantic life by learning better communication skills with men/women. A Moon-Uranus conjunction Thursday evening can upset your partner; just offer a shoulder to cry on. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction early Friday in your eighth house could bring a legacy or an insurance payment. Venus and Mars receive Moon-rays on Saturday afternoon; time to put in some quality time. Consider hanging out at the mall if looking for someone new.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Jupiter in Aries is inconjunct the Sun in Virgo. Possibly someone from your past reappears, and wants to start over. (or at least resolve some things) A housing issue may the reason for the reappearance. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Aries puts your partner in the most wonderfully sympathetic and generous mood. Enjoy it while it lasts, you know, because Aries is soon off to the next item on his agenda. Saturday afternoon features Moon oppositions to Mars and then Venus, which is a perfectly good aspect to schedule quality time around (that is, if you can fit it into your schedules). The other person sure looks good in whatever light is operative.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun moves into your solar eleventh house, bringing a new friend to your life. You might consider joining a new club or becoming more active in it. A Sun-Jupiter inconjunct affecting your sixth house can bring a new consultant to your practitioner's office, someone who may be beneficial to you. Late Wednesday, an online school or bookshop may offer the in-depth info you need. The Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Aries early Friday brings a big break in your job hunt. Possibly a referral or networking tip helps you find out about the job. The Moon opposes Mars and then Venus on Saturday afternoon; to get better acquainted with a special someone, try to schedule quality time for then.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Sun enters your solar tenth house of career. You find the spotlight rather nice. However you may have to break a date set for late Tuesday due to urgent business. Your new duties could bring some very nice increases in salary and perks, if Pluto in your second house has anything to say about it. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in your solar fifth house late Thursday indicates a good time for that rescheduled date; you will be so wonderfully sympathetic and supportive of each other. Take your new partner to meet your friends on Saturday afternoon, when the Moon opposes Mars and then Venus. Friends will find him or her gorgeous and energetic.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Sun enters your solar ninth house, bringing a new lawyer, editor, pastor or professor into your life. This person will make an impression, and might affect your workplace as a consultant or similar function. Sun in Virgo and Pluto in your sign late Wednesday hints that you may team up with this new person to overhaul the company. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Aries early Friday in your fourth house of home and family can bring a foreign guest to the home. Or you may throw open the doors in an open-house party. A Moon opposition to Mars and Venus in Libra affects your fourth and tenth house axis. It is possible that an office romance affects morale at work (not that you are one of the parties in this romance, no). But you may have to enforce company rules on such fraternization.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – The Moon is in Aquarius as the week begins, till Tuesday morning. A trine to Saturn early Sunday puts you in a serious mood, maybe serious enough to tackle chores to the bitter end. Your energy level is high Monday morn; you may even go for an early jog. Smile for the nice lady you pass on the jogging paths. Brainfog may set in early Tuesday am so be alert on the morning commute. A Moon-Jupiter conjunction in your solar eleventh house Aries favors linking up with a club officer for mentoring; at the least, a speaker at this month's meeting will be very enlightening.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 10:11 am Tuesday till late Thursday. The Full Moon at one degree Pisces is at 1:05 pm Tuesday. It features a Moon-Pluto sextile, helping you call in favors from influential friends. An inconjunct to Saturn Tuesday may indicate a change in your insurance situation. Wednesday night may be a good time to communicate with your partner and clear up misunderstandings. A Moon-Uranus conjunction at 10 pm Thursday can indicate emotional upset; tell yourself the mood will pass. The Moon-Jupiter conjunction in Aries in your solar second house of finances early Friday can urge you into reckless spending; don't do it!
