Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 29 - Sept. 4, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury at 8:35 am Friday, at 11 degrees Virgo. Retracing your steps, figuratively speaking, may be the order of the day. Make note of stock market direction today; does it retrace its steps from last month, or crabstep sideways? With Virgo here, I am thinking that discovery of minor errors in paperwork will hold up deals and so forth. Also I suggest trying to get any forms through the licensing department well before this day, so that they are not held up in the worst of bureaucratic nightmares.

Venus trines Neptune overnight Fri-Sat. Very lovely, probably not too realistic but who cares? Take a date out to the movies or somewhere very romantic and whisper all the sweet nothings you can muster. Goes well with wine.

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 as the week begins, but only for a few hours. Get the most out of the morning with an early swim (under a nice Neptune aspect) , then perhaps a tai chi session. Your home life will be busy and eventful from Friday thru the weekend. I see you squeezing a visit to the doc or other practitioner Wednesday, but be sure to call Friday for any test results. Friday's Sun-Mercury conjunction might make them lose your email or phone number, or just make the office so busy they forget to call. Friday night you try to relax with the significant other, and Saturday you are busy as usual with projects around the house.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 10:35 am Sunday till Tuesday night. The Moon-Pluto trine Sunday afternoon can make wishes seem magical; now be careful what you wish for. Earth signs rejoice when Sun in Virgo trines Moon in Taurus late Sunday. Try to harness this practical, productive energy Sunday night; perhaps a craft project occupies your mind and hands, or you build an addition to the home. Moon is inconjunct Mars-Venus in Libra early Tuesday am; an emotional adjustment is necessary to get a relationship back on track. The Moon sextiles Uranus before going void-of-course that evening; technology may be temperamental for perhaps an hour.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 8:19 pm Tuesday till early Friday. A Moon-Saturn trine early Wednesday signals a productive day if you stick to it. Squares in the afternoon and evening do not favor communications, so read emails closely before sending, or even better, wait till morning. Thursday should be a great day. Trines to Venus and Mars in the afternoon signal great energy, especially if working with children or on artistic projects. A trine to Neptune in your solar ninth house that evening may help you escape legal penalties. Last aspect before changing signs is a square to Uranus overnight; technology is cranky again.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer from 2:50 am Friday thru the weekend. Moon in Cancer squares Jupiter in Aries Friday morn; I hope this is just ordinary morning rush friction, because really, Aries can be testy if he is made even a little late. OK, lay out everything the night before, in case there is an early call in to work. That Sun-retro-Mercury conjunction might be problematical so make sure that this morning of all mornings you get an early start. Having a nice evening chat after the bustle of the day is over, perhaps over an after-dinner drink, will soothe all souls. Saturday has a Moon-Mars square about 7 pm; this square usually tells me that I need to watch what I am doing or I will have to do it over. Pace yourself.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Communications at work may need adjusting in some way, under a Moon aspect to Venus-Mars. Perhaps you have to get a credit or other adjustment to the bill?Leo's best day is probably Thursday, when easy trines dominate the afternoon and evening in your solar eleventh and third houses. Perhaps discussing business or pleasure with friends is on the agenda, or a night on the town with buddies. A great time will be had. Friday's Sun-Mercury conjunction is in your solar twelfth house and may indicate you or someone close to you may have a paperwork snarl. Just go with the flow and improvise.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Moon is in compatible Taurus early in the week, so take advantage of the earth trines on Sunday afternoon and evening, and on Monday afternoon. Best day might be Thursday; Moon's in somewhat stressful Gemini but makes a nice trine to Mars-Venus in your solar second house. Might bring money or extra funds/overtime at work. Friday's Sun-Mercury conjunction in your own sign signals you may have to put the brakes on. Also double-check any statements or other paperwork for serious errors, as they may have to be redone. Go back to Start.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Tuesday's inconjunct between the Moon and Mars-Venus in your sign signals you may have to rearrange your schedule for the day, possibly due to a Taurean's emergency. Thursday evening is quite lovely with a Moon in Gemini trine Mars-Venus in Libra; this may be a romantic date or just babysitting. Make a date with that lovely someone for late Friday night; the Venus-Neptune trine will put stars in everyone's eyes. Mmmm. A bottle of wine might be especially apropos that evening. Yow, Libra sure has her pick almost every night of the week. Saturday night's Moon-Mars square however is just a time-waster; often it means hurry up and wait, or hurry thru something only to have to do it over.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – That Mars-Venus conjunction is still being activated this week; it sits in your solar twelfth house of secrets but I think this secret will not stay secret for long. The conjunction receives transits on Tuesday morn, Thursday night and Friday night. Hmmm. Scorpios can be passionate but don't burn yourself out in just one week. Moon in Cancer from Friday thru the weekend is most compatible; emotions flow, and find resonance in the other. Moon in air sign Libra on Thursday, tho is better for communicating with that someone verbally. This is a necessary part of any relationship, Scorp, so try to make it a productive session.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – That Mars-Venus conjunction of about ten days ago keeps getting activated this week. The conjunction is in your solar eleventh house of friends, in lovely Libra, which is OK with you. You like your romances to be light and friendly. In fact, this may be someone that you dated before and now you two find each other much more interesting. Go for it. Trigger aspects occur on early Tuesday, Thursday night and Friday night. Friday's Sun-Mercury conjunction may cause a snag or two in your solar tenth house of career.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Libra's Mars-Venus conjunction of about ten days ago makes a rather stressful square by signs. They are in your solar tenth house of career, but might indicate you feel like your spouse/significant other is more like an employer. Aspects favor progress, anyway, early Tuesday, Thursday night and Friday night. Take her out to dinner with wine on Friday; trust me on this. You want to get hired, don't you? In other news, the Sun-Mercury conjunction on Friday can snarl matters related to legal matters or publishing. Check messages or call the lawyer's office to keep tabs on progress. Emails and mail can miscarry, so don't assume anything.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – That Mars-Venus conjunction in Libra about ten days ago keeps getting aspects this week. It is in your solar ninth house of legal issues, so these contacts may indicate progress in a legal matter. Perhaps a decision comes down on whether and how much of a fine you will have to pay, etc. If you have manuscripts going to press, pay close attention to matters having to do with your royalty and fees assessed to you by the printer/publisher. Contacts from the Moon to the conjunction occur early Tuesday, Thursday night and Friday night. Friday's is the worst if conducting business, but best if you are just out celebrating a deal with a bottle of champagne with dinner.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon in Taurus is very pleasant for you early in the week, Sun-Tues. Lovely Libra's Venus-Mars conjunction was probably a puzzler for you, and you needed time to think things over. Well, the planets are checking back with you this week (three times!) and want a reply. In other news, the Sun-Mercury conjunction in opposing Virgo on Friday morning can snarl communications with your significant other and ALL others. Make sure you are clear on who is picking up whom, or if you are just meeting somewhere. Not a good day to deliver a speech or conduct an interview.
