Your Milky Way Horoscope June 5-11, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury in Gemini trines Saturn at 10 degrees Libra at 4:40 pm Tuesday
. Serious discussion is on your agenda, possibly with an older mentor type. You might want to use this mentor as a sounding board, or pick their brains for sage advice. The keyword is practicality, or should I say pragmatism.

Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Neptune at 0 degrees Pisces at 10:39 pm Wednesday. Since Neptune rules film, I bet lots of people will be moved to hold their own private film festival, or possibly pull out the camera to make their own. Launching a photography, film, wine, or large-animal venture is favored, if it ties in with your natal planets. On another level, Neptune is ideals, and Jupiter is spirituality. Therefore people affected by this transit may feel more aware of how things like karma or dharma work. You may adopt an uncomplicated philosophy such as 'pay it forward.'

Venus enters flirtatious Gemini at 10:23 am Thursday. Yes, you flirt, flirt, flirt. It's almost like, geez, I'm so good at it, why can't I get a job doing this? Well, maybe you can. Kind of. Met a coworker who gave presentations and attributed her job to her gift of gab. Well, if she can do it then so can you. Gemini Venus can present factual info in such a way that it is not only painless, it is a definite pleasure. Gemini Venus can make people feel welcome with just a smile, a nod, and a phrase. This is ideal for stewardesses, convention staffers, restaurant hostesses, and just about anyone who works with the public.

Venus in Gemini squares Neptune at 0 degrees Pisces at 4:24 am Friday. Oh, there you go again. Venus and Neptune can fall in love at the drop of a hat but the problem is, they are not falling in love with the person. They are falling in love with their fantasy of what the person is. Having no real experience of what the person is like, he or she is just a tabula rasa (blank slate) that they have written their fantasy onto. I mean, it can still work out OK if the people are basically decent anyway, but too often the Prince Charming is a swindler.

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 – A chat with an authority on Tuesday might be quite an eye-opener. Venus moves into your solar third house on Thursday; a sibling may be more appreciative of you, so trade favors, house-sit, etc. Just be careful on Friday when Venus gets tangled up with Neptune and can't see straight anymore. Don't believe everything that people tell you. Friday morning also has Pluto square the Moon and square your natal planets, so it might be a challenge to get excited about going to work. But you will...

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Jupiter in your sign sextiles Neptune in Pisces, your solar eleventh house of friends. Now on the one hand this could portend a shifty 'friend' taking you for a ride, but on the other hand you might feel drawn to joining a charitable or spiritual organization. The latter can enrich your life tremendously so I encourage you to follow that pull. Not only is Jupiter in your sign now, the lesser benefic Venus enters your solar second house of money on Thursday. Are you on a roll or what? The change in your luck is just beginning so give it a little time to percolate.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Mercury in your sign trines Saturn on Tuesday pm; this favors consultations and any serious discussions. I know, Gemini rarely likes to be serious, but it's time to Take Care of Business. Then Venus enters your sign on Thursday, yay. You're skilled at persuasion, but with Venus on your side, you can succeed with an even lighter touch. Venus in your sign also favors getting a new do at the salon. Maybe you can talk them into a discount if you promise great mention on your blog. Be careful Friday morn with that Venus-Neptune square; count your change, and your fingers, too.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer as the week begins, but only till midday. Sunday morning features a pleasant Moon-Venus sextile, favoring brunch with friends or at the lodge. Wednesday might be your best day when Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Neptune at 0 degrees Pisces, making easy trines and sextiles to your sign. Going to the movies with friends will be such fun, you will wonder why you don't do it more often. Saturday is also a great movie night (if you have to take a rain check) due to the Moon-Neptune trine.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 11:03 am Sunday till midday Tuesday. Dinner with Arians appeals to you, as a trine to Uranus in Aries promises lots of good laughs. Your own wit may sharpen as the evening goes on. Easy sextiles on Monday help smooth the workday, but a Moon-Mars square at night can make you rush around wasting energy. Midday Tuesday offers a Moon-Venus square, which may mean a challenge; ex.: having to sell X amount for a company bonus. Venus enters your solar eleventh house on Thursday, bringing benefits from friends or from membership in associations or clubs.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 3:33 pm Tuesday till Thursday night. A tempting offer may fall in your lap Tuesday afternoon under a trine to Jupiter- but look under the hood because Neptune is opposed and may mean that promises may not be kept. I see a mechanical repair, or perhaps a medical checkup, in store for late Tuesday. Wednesday you feel empowered under a Pluto trine. Midday can see some communication mixups so verify, and keep everyone in the loop. Energy is high Thursday morning with a trine to Mars. Venus enters your solar tenth house of career; you may be able to earn bonuses or appreciation certificates.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Saturn in your sign gets a pleasant trine to Mercury Tuesday afternoon; you may be asked for advice, or invited to write a column as the expert you are. The Moon is in Libra from 6:31 pm Thursday till Saturday night. Venus enters your solar ninth house on Thursday, smiling on positive results in legal matters, publishing, religion, college, travel and national politics. The Moon trines Venus Thursday night, favoring a dinner date or at least a phone call. The Moon-Saturn conjunction midday Friday helps you stay objective and on course. Larks will benefit from nice trines Saturday in the pre-dawn. But an inconjunct to Mars about 9 am forces you to improvise.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon in challenging Leo squares Jupiter in Taurus midday Sunday, making a T-square with your natal planets. It may be hard to balance career with married life, but make an effort. Tuesday may be your best day with the Moon in compatible Virgo, with trines helping you make successful pitches to partners or customers. Venus enters your solar eighth house on Thursday, meaning your spouses finances may improve. The Moon is in Scorpio from 8:33 pm Saturday thru the weekend. Rose-colored glasses predominate Saturday night, but maybe you'd enjoy a positive film.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The conversation with friends takes a serious turn on Tuesday. Boring you silly, I know, but keep your ears open and learn. Venus enters your opposite sign on Thursday. Usually that means a lovely thing suddenly crosses your line of vision. This time it might be your own spouse, newly gussied up at the salon. So fuss over her, take her out. Maybe you can arrange to fall in love with her again on Friday morning, when you could fall in love with just anyone who crosses your path. But you'd rather fall for someone you already know is crazy about you, right?

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – On Tuesday, a friend or someone in a club you belong to offers some sage advice. Problem is, it may not be quite what you want to hear, but mull things over for a few days. With Venus entering your solar sixth house on Thursday, you might have improved luck selling your craft projects or personal services. Don't take the first offer; it will probably be a real lowball offer and insult you. Your health may also take an upturn, tho you might try to limit sweets a bit.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Tuesday favors having a serious bull session, under the Mercury-Saturn trine. Those planets will in turn trine your natal planets for an air grand trine. Hmm, take good notes on all the ideas lobbed around because you will possibly be able to mine a lot of them over the next year or so. Venus enters Gemini on Thursday, your solar fifth house of fun and romance. This favors looking for a love interest if you are not attached, especially if dating takes you to amusement parks or sports venues.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Venus enters Gemini, your solar fourth house on Thursday. Time to spruce up the home again, get out paint and wallpaper samples. The Gemini influence tends to like an airy look in general, with light colors especially lemon. Gemini loves miniatures, so you might want to display your collection. On Friday, Venus in Gemini squares Neptune in your sign; you may be all googly-eyed over a family member's new friend and not see obvious warning signs. Saturday night is favored for your all-night film fest under a Moon-Neptune trine. Ask a Taurus friend over to share popcorn with.
