Your Milky Way Horoscope Feb. 27-March 5, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Venus at 29 degrees Capricorn sextiles Uranus in Pisces at 9:49 am Tuesday
. New and different people and relationships beckon. These relationships may not last very long, or one party may drift in and out of your life at irregular intervals. Ah well, c'est la vie. Reminds me of the story of Margot Fonteyn, the ballet dancer, meeting her future husband. She went out with him, felt like she was walking on air, then he disappeared for ten years. He pops back in and they wind up getting married.

Venus enters Aquarius at 9:39 pm Tuesday. At its worst, Venus here uses the pretext of universal love to avoid establishing close personal relationships. Aquarius can be so detached that they cannot relate and bond with anyone on a personal level. However, Venus in Aquarius can attract equals and have close relationships while allowing the loved one the freedom to have other close friends. Venus here can love someone without the desire necessarily to possess the other, like their car or their house.

Mercury at 16 degrees Pisces is inconjunct (retrograde) Saturn in Libra at 8:03 am Wednesday. Some of us may have to make a mental (Mercury) adjustment (inconjunct) with regard to restrictions or regulations. We may have to make do with less, or nothing at all. Or we may have to get used to sharing a resource (not just food or gas, but a park campsite, library, etc).

Mars at 7 degrees Pisces sextiles Pluto in Capricorn at 9:52 pm Thursday. There's a real chance that someone (especially a Pisces or Capricorn) may try to use you as a rung on the ladder of their success. Pisces is not usually thought of as being really ambitious, but sometimes she thinks she is just sooo special that everyone ought to step aside for her. Not.

Looking ahead to next Sunday, the Sun at 15-16 degrees Pisces will be inconjunct Saturn (retrograde) in Libra at 3:25 pm March 6. This is related to the Mercury-Saturn inconjunct from Wednesday. Perhaps yet another inconvenience will be foisted on the American people due to some perceived threat by terrorists, etc.

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 your solar eleventh house on Tuesday. Friends may throw a few more parties, and invite you of course. They may even invent a reason to exchange gifts or door prizes.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Venus enters your solar tenth house of career on Tuesday. Some perks may come your way, like employee-appreciation gifts or store cards. Enjoy it while it lasts, because so many workers never get any thanks for showing up every day and keeping things together. You may also take some treats to share with your department, for which they will beg the recipe. On Thursday a so-called friend may want you to advance their career inre getting your publisher to handle their book, or get your referral or blurb or endorsement, etc. Well, if you think the product merits your attention, then fine. But don't let someone just use you.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - Venus enters your solar ninth house of law-publishing-religion-college on Tuesday. A nice review could come your way for your new book or column, or a prof compliments you on your research paper. Legal judgments could possibly award you a tidy sum as compensation. And you in turn are quite open with the compliments, yourself. Thursday's Mars-Pluto sextile might help you gain some career perks, such as health insurance or a life policy.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 - Venus enters your solar eighth house of estates, insurance, and other pooled funds on Tuesday. Insurance or estates may finally settle with a modest check, or remembrance, sent to you. You might also take the opportunity to start making a list for your will, of what your wishes are regarding final disposal of treasured items. Be careful Thursday if a spouse wants you to sign legal papers without letting you read them, under the Mars-Pluto sextile. They may or may not favor your interests, and you have every right to know what this is all about.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 - Venus enters your solar seventh house of partners on Tuesday. Ah, the love of your life never looked lovelier. Treat her to a night out of dinner and dancing, or a concert. Make some memories of beautiful times together. Ask questions ahead of time if having any medical visits Thursday, under the Mars-Pluto sextile. You need to know what the insurance will pay for and what it won't.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 - Venus enters your solar sixth house of health and work on Tuesday. Well this one is tricky. Venus is sweets, and too much of that may have a negative impact on your health even if you are not diabetic. However, Venus is also cash, and you may earn a bit of extra money on the side with something you do as a hobby. Venus also rules arts and crafts, sales, and music, so any of these may be a source of extra income. Your partner may seem extra studly Thursday under the Mars-Pluto sextile; ask yourself if you want to add to the family and plan accordingly.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 - Venus enters your solar fifth house of fun, romance, art, children, and creativity on Tuesday. Venus rules music in particular, so attending a concert may be on the agenda this month.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 - Venus enters your solar fourth house on Tuesday. Time to spiff up the house with a bit of paint or new throw pillows, curtains or perhaps a curio cabinet for all your treasures. Venus in the fourth could also mean hosting a charming young lady guest or au pair. A sibling or other relative may try to use you to advance their artistic career Thursday, under the Mars-Pluto sextile. Be wary of gifts, and what kind of obligation is expected in return.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 - Venus enters your solar third house on Tuesday. Venus here in the house of communications could have something to do with writing a column of music reviews. Also the third house is siblings and other relatives, so a lovely sister or cousin may pop back into your life, possibly with a peace offering. Be careful of accepting any loans or other similar obligations Thursday, under the Mars-Pluto sextile. They may look like gifts, but underneath they come with too many strings attached. Practice nice phrases for declining such gifts.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – The Moon is in Capricorn Sunday until very early Tuesday. The Moon-Pluto conjunction about 4 am Sunday wakes you with a determination to take back control of some part of your life. The Moon sextiles the Sun in Pisces at 6:40 am Sunday, favoring a pleasant breakfast with a sibling or other relative. You might chat most of the morning away, or go shopping together. Frustration sets in with a Moon-Saturn square Sunday night; this is just a bad-mood aspect; let it pass without making too much of it. Monday morn features a Moon-Venus conjunction about 10 am; good for making a sale, or just being with a loved one. Late that night the Moon sextiles Uranus for a bit of excitement; go to a comedy club, or attend some unusual local event.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Venus enters your sign on Tuesday; see notes above. The Moon is in Aquarius from 12:14 am Tuesday till midday Thursday. The Moon sextiles Jupiter in Aries Tuesday afternoon; a boon companion picks up your spirits. Wednesday morn is great for getting lots of work done under a Moon-Saturn trine. You might also consult a mentor or older person for advice. Be careful on your Thursday morning commute because a Moon-Neptune conjunction in your sign can make you very fuzzy-headed.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces from 11:47 am Thursday till very early next Sunday. A Moon-Mars sextile to Pluto in Capricorn Thursday night (into early Friday) can make you irritated enough to declare war on something or somebody; the real goal should be to stop letting others step on you or take advantage. Once that stops, you won't feel so irritable or ragged anymore. The New Moon in Pisces at 3:46 pm Friday would be a good time to use affirmations to renew your goals. On Saturday, the Moon joins Mercury (8 am) and Uranus (11:30 pm). You are on the go in the morning, multi-tasking, shopping, chatting. Uranus brings upsets, sometimes over minor things, so try to keep things in perspective. If someone tries to get your goat, step away and let others handle things.
