Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 28- Dec. 4, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Venus enters Scorpio at 7:33 pm Monday
, Nov. 29. Venus is not really at home here, mainly because Scorpio is a bit too possessive for her taste. Her first aspect is midday Wednesday when she sextiles Mercury in Capricorn. This is a good aspect for taking care of business, selling off items you no longer need, pruning old business files, and also sending your thank-yous for your business in 2010.

Mars in Sag squares Jupiter in Pisces at 9:51 am Monday at 23 degrees. Mars-Jupiter aspects have to do with taking risks, and also tend to favor athletic efforts. The square requires an extra effort, perhaps a second effort. So don't get down; the game isn't over till the final whistle.

Mars in Sag squares Uranus in Pisces at 9:01 am Friday at 26 degrees. This can cause all manner of accidents, injuries, and mechanical or electronic interruptions. Just be careful out there, and everyone will get where they're going with plenty of time to spare.

For some positive readings of what each months Full Moon means, please check out the 2012 countdown pages. See this page on this week's Full Moon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DXqPk6VxnYo These folks believe that the clicks of the solar calendar mark progress as the human race continues to evolve. Let's hope that the human race DOES continue to evolve, because we're toast if we don't.

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 – Venus enters Scorpio on Monday, enlivening your sex life but also possibly bringing an insurance payment (perhaps long overdue). Mercury enters your solar tenth house on Nov. 30, and sextiles Venus the next day. Insurance issues may be resolved especially if they are related to your employer. Orders can easily increase with Mercury there, and you may field more phone calls or faxes. If you are in the performing arts or in business, this placement of Mercury can land you a nice spot as a company spokesperson. You are the one that people go to for info about the company, so have your facts ready.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Venus enters your solar seventh house on Monday; she tends to make your mate look extra beautiful and extra kind. You might get some spotlight time also for your charm and personality. Mercury enters your solar ninth house on Nov. 30, excellent for buckling down to study and writing up papers for class. You are able to argue successfully in court, or progress through the editing process for a book or screenplay. Talk things up, definitely talk things up.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Mercury enters your solar eighth house on Nov. 30, so letters re insurance may be more frequent. Did you know you can buy life insurance that has long-term care as a rider? You need to talk with your agent about what your concerns are, and poke around to find out more options for protecting yourself. Venus in your twelfth house makes sweets your prime weakness this month especially, when you are normally so good about rationing out treats. Don't even take them home, just take a box to work or on visits to share.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Venus enters your solar fifth house, Scorpio, on Monday and boy does the romance department get interesting. You are so much smarter about how to handle men this time around, about when to act cool and when to make a fuss over him. This time, YOU are in control, baby. Mercury enters your solar seventh house on Nov. 30; lots of chatter, you may even be in the public eye like in an interview or as a spokesperson. That may be how a certain special someone learns what a fascinating person you are.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - Venus enters Scorpio, your solar fourth house of home and family, on Monday. Venus can bring a new baby daughter, or a charming guest, or a beautification effort. New drapes or pillows freshen the look, and you want things that make you feel more comfortable. Anything soft or cushy or fuzzy. Mercury enters your solar sixth house on Nov. 30, picking up the tempo of work and product orders and writing up quotes. The sextile to Venus on Wednesday is especially favorable for at least getting the opportunity to quote on jobs.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 4:34 am Sunday till Tuesday morning. The Moon trines Pluto midday Sunday; pick out silver charms for stocking stuffers. The Sun-Moon square that afternoon can see friction between the sexes, so be willing to compromise. The Mars Jupiter square Monday morning could denote friction with your spouse over home and family issues, possibly over a young male member of the household. I hope this person does not cause you any losses; you will have to evaluate whether the inconvenience of hosting this person is worth upsetting your family. Mercury enters your solar fifth house on Nov. 30, meaning a bright young person attracts your attention; you will likely have lots to talk about.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Venus enters your solar second house Scorpio on Monday; lucky you may win door prizes or bring home bonuses. The Moon is in Libra from 7:15 am Tuesday till Thursday morning. The Moon squares Pluto right away Tuesday afternoon; you feel locked in a power struggle with another family member. Perhaps you are getting bogged down in unimportant details; focus instead on an ideal, like harmony or on the opportunity to get better acquainted with other relatives. Raise your eyes off the pavement, and I am sure the whole situation will lift for you. Wednesday features a Moon-Saturn conjunction early, putting you in a sober, concerned frame of mind. But this is helpful for analyzing and breaking down your tasks into manageable units. Thursday receives an early kickoff with a Moon-Neptune trine, giving the day a spiritual orientation.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Venus enters your sign on Monday; rejoice and pay attention to extra touches re wardrobe or jewelry. The Moon is in Scorpio from 9:44 am Thursday till the last minute of Saturday. Scorpio is tuned into the death of the fields as the plants sacrifice their fruits to us humans; be thankful and generous in sharing what we have been blessed with. The Moon-Venus conjunction midday on Thursday puts the accent on love, values, sharing and hugging. Plus desserts, lots of desserts. And break a turkey wishbone with someone else, because you might win and get your wish to come true. Be careful Friday; the Mars-Uranus square does not affect you personally but still I think you'd be safer staying home. Share lots of laughs and leftovers both Friday and Saturday; you have plenty to go around of both. Mercury enters your solar third house on Nov. 30, its natural house, so I expect that transit and messages both command more of your attention now.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars in Sag sextiles Neptune in Aquarius on Thursday, which says that alcohol can too easily turn to argument today. Don't spoil a wonderful day; instead turn the Mars energy to a walk or a pickup game of basketball to help work off those holiday calories. Jupiter and Uranus in your solar fourth house of home n family receive nice Moon contacts on Friday and Saturday, respectively; so if family schedules favor get-togethers, take it. Uranus/Sat. will have more laughs, tho the morn may be error-prone under Neptune. While Friday morn could be accident-prone due to Mars square Uranus; appoint someone safety marshal both mornings, to clean up spills and turn pot handles inward.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Ceres and Pluto are in your sign this month, evoking the image of the cornucopia. The Horn of Plenty combines not only Ceres' gifts of the earth (fertility), but Pluto's incredible wealth. America has been blessed but her gifts have been abused by profiteering and deliberate creation of scarcity for the sake of profit. Rejoice that there is plenty for all if we share the earth's bounty. Rather than let something go to waste, try to think how to share it with someone less fortunate. Venus enters Scorpio, your solar eleventh house of friends; you may visit more homes or attend more club meetings than in the past year. You may win a door prize at this month's meeting, so go already. Mercury enters your sign on Nov. 30; suddenly words come more easily to you and you might be the subject of an interview or news story.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Venus enters Scorpio, your solar tenth house of career, on Monday. Venus here is wonderful, greasing the wheels for making useful contacts or getting customers to sign contracts. You might also introduce acquaintances who really ought to hear about the others' products. Venus in the tenth not only looks good, she is gracious, charming, and gets others to like her. And no one bought anything important or hired someone unless they first LIKED that person. So do not hesitate to pour on the charm and let others talk about their favorite subjects; you will seem like the most fascinating person in the room.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - Venus enters Scorpio, your solar ninth house, on Monday. Venus here supports your court claim for payment, or offers praise for your submitted manuscript. You still may need to polish that m.s., but it at least has an early supporter. Mercury enters your solar eleventh house on Nov. 30, and sextiles Venus the next day. A friend may put you on the trail of an editor, paralegal, or political contact who can pass along tips to realizing career goals.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 21-27, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

Sunday, Nov. 21 features a Full Moon at 29 degrees
, 18 minutes of Taurus. It is exact at 12:27 pm. The Moon's last conventional aspect before the Full Moon is a sextile to Uranus, followed by an inconjunct to Venus, both in the morning. Some happy surprises could be heading your way in the coming month. The Moon goes void-of-course right away with the opposition to the Sun in Scorpio (definition of this full moon) and enters Gemini at 1:46 pm Sunday; its first aspect is an inconjunct to Pluto, and this is followed by a trine to Saturn on Monday afternoon. Getting your head straight about things you cannot change will make it easier for you to settle into a program of working toward your goals. Other astrologers assign an opportunity period after the Moon squares Neptune (6:17 am Sunday) until the Moon enters Gemini (1:46 pm Sunday). This is over 7 hours when you may try to connect with people, schmooze, network, or just relax with friends, etc. You will be onstage and you'll be able to get the undivided attention of others.

The Sun enters fire-sign Sag at 5:15 am Monday, helping you rise and shine for another week. The Sun trines the Moon in Leo on Friday morning for a jolly fire-sign alignment. A fine morning for self-expression, for a harmonious brunch with your partner, and for finding a receptive ear for your ideas. The more enthusiasm you show, the better.

Mercury in Sag sextiles Neptune in Aquarius at 8:13 am Saturday
; this is obviously bad for clarity. Make sure of your directions before starting out on car trips because I think it will be too easy to get lost. This aspect is followed up with a square to Uranus at 9:27 pm; this could be bad for electronic and mechanical gizmos, as they self-destruct or act temperamental. BUT this can be very good for getting sudden flashes of insight (Uranus) to a puzzle or problem.

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 Full Moon in Taurus highlights your solar second house of money. It can be difficult to capitalize on this Full Moon, I think, but if you socialize and schmooze and network during the day Sunday, I think you may connect with people who can eventually bring in orders. The Moon is in compatible Leo starting very early Friday; turn up the personal warmth and good things can happen. Your Sun plus Moon in Leo plus Sun in Sag on Friday morning makes a wonderful personal grand trine; you can inspire and lead anyone anywhere.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from Sunday till early afternoon. The Moon-Neptune square about 6 am makes for very fuzzy-headed bulls Sunday morning; maybe you should let others wait on you, or just sleep in. You will feel more creative mid-morning under an inconjunct to Venus; play with a cookie recipe, or pull out the paints and easel. The Full Moon in your sign gives you a chance to collect on investments – or not.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 1:46 pm Sunday till Tuesday evening. The Moon makes an inconjunct to Pluto Sunday night; this is helpful if you are trying to reprogram yourself to break bad habits or erase negative programming. Monday afternoon features a Moon-Saturn trine; Saturn helps you stick to the to-do list till it is done. A Moon Mars opposition overnight can make you say some very angry things, count ten, you know. And take out frustrations with a workout or just kicking a pillow. Tuesday offers opportunity (a square to Jupiter) and hope (a trine to Neptune). Combined, you are unstoppable.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in its home, Cancer, from 8:14 pm Tuesday till the wee hours Friday. The Moon is inconjunct the Sun late Tuesday; relationships can be strained so make sure to establish rapport first thing upon meeting. Look him or her in the eyes, smile, and ask an open-ended question. Wednesday can be frustrating under a Moon-Saturn square; people will say no, so don't take it personally but ask what you have to do to get your proposal up to snuff. Thursday you will beaver away at tweaking and adjusting your work.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 1:01 am Friday till next Sunday morn. The Moon-Pluto inconjunct on Friday morn is helpful in reprogramming yourself, so get hold of some self-help books or video clips and give it a go. You could get some very interesting early returns on that investment. Your energy is high on Saturday, (Moon trine Mars) and I see you just a dynamo all day. Chill out with friends and a movie that night, preferably something kind of inspiring.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Full Moon in your solar ninth house may signal winning a scholarship or some kind of tuition assistance. The Moon is in compatible Cancer Tuesday night thru Thursday, but it does ask many of us to adjust and compromise and be creative in tweaking your personal space. Be cautious about money on Wednesday, when the Moon squares Saturn in your solar second house; you may be caught short of cash, or a payment could be delayed.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Best days may be the ones with the Moon in Cancer, Tuesday night thru Thursday – altho Wednesday may be frustrating. Your mental toughness will be your best asset this week. Mercury squares Jupiter in your solar sixth house of work and health on Thursday; you may have to look hard to find the silver lining in an announcement. Mercury in your solar third house sextiles Neptune in your solar fifth house on Saturday; taking a short trip to be near water, or visiting large animals such as at a zoo or racetrack, could be auspicious. You will at the least find it stimulating.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Full Moon in your solar seventh house of partners puts your spouse in the spotlight. He or she may have some grand designs financially but apply a dose of caution and realism to that; things may work out but you will sleep better if you don't risk the farm on it.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The Sun enters Sag early Monday morning, at the same time that the Moon is in your solar seventh house of partners. This signals an emphasis on relationships, including relations with the general public. Sag generally is not shy, but if you have ever had problems introducing yourself to strangers, pick up the book How to Make People Like You in 90 Seconds or Less by Nicholas Boothman. Mercury in Sag squares Jupiter in Pisces in your solar fourth house on Thursday morn. You might learn how to do some of your repairs or improvements around the house; believe me this can be enormously satisfying.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday's Full Moon in your solar fifth house of fun and romance can warm up your love life big time. Splurge a little and take out that special someone to a concert or favorite mom-n-pop restaurant. Wednesday can be difficult to deal with partners or with the public due to a Moon-Saturn square and Moon-Pluto opposition. Don't get bogged down in a tug of war. Also, be willing to make an adjustment or compromise Friday morning.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Mercury in your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs is activated this week more than once. It squares Jupiter in your solar second house on Thursday; make sure to touch base and if a friend owes you money you might get a repayment but not in cash. Cultivate your friends, reinforce connections with them, and make them feel that the benefits flow both ways.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Full Moon in Taurus Sunday favors your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs. You may wind up in the spotlight and take an officer position in your club. Pay back friends' favors with invites to your home for dinner. The Moon in compatible Cancer Tuesday night thru Thursday may feel comfortable, tho it asks many of us to make adjustments and be creative. Mercury squares Uranus in Pisces on Saturday night; communications and mechanical devices may be cranky; seek someone with an aptitude for that stuff to straighten things out.

Your Milky Way Horoscope Nov. 14-20, 2010

By Milky Way Maid

I just wanna say that if you ever have Venus on your natal Neptune, as I did this weekend, forget about getting lucky at any games of chance. You will only increase the profits of the casino or track, or host of the weekly poker game. Wait for Venus to cross your Ascendant or Sun, or enter your second house.

The Sun at 23 degrees of Scorpio trines Jupiter in Pisces at 6:44 pm Monday. This can be quite lucky but not necessarily in games of chance. You may find someone who has the answers to your questions, or someone who can solve a long-standing problem. This person may be quite successful or at least generous about sharing whatever good fortune he/she has. Be grateful to the Universe for sending this person your way.

Mercury at 13 degrees Sag sextiles Saturn in Libra at 9:09 pm Wed., Nov. 17. This is great for attention to details, and any precision work. Your concentration will be good, so select any tedious task from your to-do list and get it out of the way at last. A bookkeepers' and diamond-cutters' delight.

Both Venus in Libra and Jupiter in Pisces go direct on Thur., Nov. 18. Jupiter stations at 23 degrees Pisces at 11:53 am; Venus follows at 27 degrees Libra at 4:18 pm.
Jim Shawvan identifies an interesting opportunity period for romance on Nov. 18. There is a Moon-Neptune sextile at 9:14 pm ET that night. He says “wait two hours after the sextile, and only then arrive at the club or party of your choice. You'll have a bit over an hour, and Venus just turned direct.” Well, this is interesting. So what the heck, if you are taking applications for the job of Significant Other, give it a go.

The Sun at 26 degrees Scorpio trines Uranus in Pisces at 12:57 am Friday, Nov. 19. You could be rather restless, but this is probably because your mind is seeking something new and stimulating. Get out to new venues, challenge yourself. You will enjoy meeting people very different from yourself; they may be rather eccentric or they may be foreigners, or both! And in spite of your enormous differences, you may find you get along quite well. Enjoy.

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 5:59 pm Tuesday till Friday morning. Monday morn may be frustrating, but hold on, a Moon-Mercury trine that evening brings either good news or at least someone you can talk things over with. A Moon-Mars trine overnight recharges your batteries. Venus goes direct in your opposite sign, in your solar seventh house, putting your partner in a more loving frame of mind this month. Try to make time to be together and and make good memories. A Sun-Moon inconjunct Thurs. night calls for accommodating each other's differences – but viva la difference, as they say.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in Taurus from 5:04 am Friday till next Sunday afternoon. A Moon-Pluto trine midday Friday puts you in a serious frame of mind. You want to get to the bottom of things, and a trine may mean you succeed at that. Good! Saturday has several inconjunct aspects (Moon-Saturn, Moon to Mercury and Mars), making a Yod. You may feel like some things a fated to be or not be, and you could be right about that. Consider that you may have chosen some situation before you were born, in order to raise your soul consciousness to a higher level. A Moon-Jupiter sextile overnight fosters a more philosophical attitude.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Mars and Mercury in Sag, in your solar ninth house, receive positive boosts from the Moon all week. The squares on Monday kick you into gear, but the rest of the week supports your interests. Perhaps a lawyer is fighting for your rights, or an editor is advocating accepting your manuscript. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Venus goes direct in Libra on Thursday afternoon, in your solar fifth house of romance and fun. Oh, perhaps that explains why things were not panning out these past 5 weeks or so, but now things should move forward again. Love yourself first, to attract even more positive energies from that special guy or gal.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Your best day this week may be Monday; the Moon is in compatible Pisces, and receives easy aspects from Ceres. Tuesday is also very positive, and you might even have a psychic experience. Venus goes direct on Thursday in your solar fourth house of home and family, the sector that means the most to you anyway. An estranged daughter may return, or a female house guest may brighten the upcoming holidays. Jupiter goes direct the same day in your solar ninth house of college, law, religion and publishing. So take your pick of what issues may be positively impacted by the switch to forward motion.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Venus goes direct on Thursday in an easy aspect to your Sun sign, from your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs. You may renew rewarding friendships, or rejoin clubs that offer many member benefits. Jupiter goes direct from your solar eighth house of pooled resources, such as insurance or stocks. There is the chance of a legacy coming through, but more likely is that an appeal of an insurance matter results in a decision in your favor. Please avail yourself of much how-to info online such as at insuranceconsumeradvisor.blogspot.com/ Good luck.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Venus goes direct in Libra on Thursday, in your solar second house of money. This is very welcome news for you, I am sure. Whatever snafus have tied you in knots lately can be unraveled and straightened out posthaste. Jupiter goes direct that same day in your solar seventh house, Pisces, so your mate may decide to be more magnanimous and forgiving. Be equally welcoming, and just forget the past. The Moon is in compatible Taurus Friday thru the weekend, so enjoy her earthy rays.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Mercury and Mars in Sag, in your solar third house of communications, receive a troubling square from the Moon on Monday. Bite your tongue before speaking out; find a better way to phrase things and try again later in the week. Venus goes direct in your sign on Thursday. Whatever has vexed you lately can be smoothed over; any delayed monies or other benefits should show up at your door. Also Jupiter goes direct the same day, and in close inconjunct aspect to Venus. Someone may have to make a mental adjustment before you can enjoy the blessings of life that are due people as civilized as you; be gracious and forgiving as only you can.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun in Scorpio trines Jupiter in Pisces Monday night; see notes above. Those with a Scorpio ascendant will see this Jupiter in their fifth house of romance and fun; lucky you. You could luck out and win a jackpot, or just meet Mr or Ms Wonderful. Jupiter goes direct on Thursday in your solar fifth house of romance and fun and yes, gambling. Your luck could take a dramatic turn for the better. And the keys to the kingdom can be yours in the romance department, too, so don't be stingy with someone who could turn out to be the real deal.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Mars in your sign sextiles Saturn very early Monday; you will get a lot accomplished today, as your stick-to-it-ness is very high. (That is so a word.) A similar aspect strikes on Wed. night, when Mercury sextiles Saturn; this is very good for detailed work, especially if it is more mental than physical, or if it uses the hands in crafts. Venus goes direct on Thursday in your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs; you may introduce a friend to someone special, or a club that you belong to may award you a modest gift or token of appreciation for all you've done. Jupiter goes direct in your solar fourth house of home and family; you dearly want to do the holidays up big, and Jupiter here supports playing host to a large gathering.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Mercury in Sag sextiles Saturn in Libra on Wed., in your solar house of career. This is great for attention to details, and any precision work. Your concentration will be good. Venus goes direct Thursday in your solar tenth house of career, your favorite sector. You may be awarded some recognition for your efforts, perhaps the key to the exec washroom or something more fun. Jupiter goes direct the same day in your solar third house of communications, and the phone may ring off the hook. Many offers may come in if you float a proposal or request for quotes. Siblings may also be in a generous mood so give them the pleasure of accepting their offers.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Venus goes direct in your solar ninth house of Libra on Thursday. A positive verdict may come through in a legal case, maybe not for a lot of money but enough to cover your losses. It could also denote that a favorable view is taken by an editor at a publishing house in response to your manuscript. This does not guarantee they will publish it, but take whatever pointers and encouragement you receive. Jupiter goes direct the same day in your solar second house of money, now that's where some real dough could start coming into your bank accounts. Hold off on expenditures tho; I recall one period when Jove was in my second house and all it did was protect my job for awhile, but that was something, anyway.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 5:24 am Sunday till Tuesday night. The Moon-Pluto sextile early Sunday puts you in a serious frame of mind especially where family is concerned. Maybe you suddenly decide that you want to archive the huge number of family photos – online. Sounds good to me. A Moon-Mercury square at midnight makes it hard to express yourself. Also your moods can change by the minute, so don't even try to make plans. An aspect to Saturn on Monday means you need to accept What Is, and go from there. Tuesday looks very good with a Sun-Moon trine very early, and a Moon-Uranus conjunction at midday. You might have a psychic experience at lunch time, when you just know what someone is going to say or do before they do it.
