Your Milky Way Horoscope May 8-14, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Mars enters Taurus at 3:03 am Wednesday. Mars has difficulty expressing itself in Taurus; too often it turns to stubbornness. It's good for boxers, though, because they have well-developed shoulders, and have great stamina. Mars is competitiveness, and too often Mars in Taurus is competitive about one's material success; many Taureans are continually comparing their material success/possessions with others. What a really successful Taurean does is take a page from others' books, i.e. adopting techniques or strategies that have worked for others. You don't have to always do things the hard way, Taurus! Encourage others to think up ideas on how to make your current projects work. Your resources are not just your own muscles, brain, and energy; they also include all the inputs from the people around you, your co-workers, team mates, friends and counselors.

Venus and Jupiter are conjunct at 24 degrees of Aries at 10:42 am Wednesday, May 11. A great day for socializing, for being out there in the public eye, for dating or marrying, for finances (altho you may spend your gains on extravagances before you even cash the check). Wednesday will probably be a red-letter day no matter what you do.

Mercury and Jupiter are conjunct at 24 degrees of Aries at 3:57 pm Wednesday. This is like a followup to the above aspect, perhaps with a news item about someone's lucky day. BTW all these planets are trine to the North Node in late Sag, which means that this luck is tied in to progressing on a path of soul growth. If you are doing what you were meant to do in this lifetime, then you are more likely to see a wonderful turn of events.

Mars in Taurus sextiles Neptune at zero degrees Pisces at 4:28 am Thursday. This heightens Neptune's sensitivity to the plight of others, and Mars lend energy to work on their behalf. One's own ego is softened by Neptune's self-effacing quality, so you might volunteer with no thought of reward or even thanks. It's a good time to study occult matters like astrology, tarot, i ching, psychic talents, or religious philosophy. I must mention that for some people, this aspect puts one's energy level at a low ebb; often one is soothed or restored by being in or near water.

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 – Wednesday could be your lucky day, Ari, with Venus and Jupiter conjunct in your sign in the morning, and Mercury-Jupiter conjunct in the afternoon. Try to schedule interviews or sales calls for this day. Or a wedding, if you are actively involved with a gent/lady of your dreams. Mars enters your solar second house on the same day. Mars in the second can accent a problem with debt, but it can also help you in a sales position. You may be sorely tempted to put something on the plastic, till late June when Mars passes into Gemini, but hold off on that. You can figure out some alternative to adding to debt.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – Siblings may shoulder the hosting duties for Mother's Day Sunday, so enjoy being a guest that day. Mars enters your sun sign on Wednesday; see above notes about that. The Moon trines the Sun in Taurus late Thursday, favoring harmonious gatherings with the kids or meetings with the lawyer or pastor. The Moon-Saturn conjunction in your solar sixth house early Saturday favors taking up an exercise regimen, or possibly accepting a second job.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Your luck this week may come from a friend or a club that you belong to; I am referring to the Venus-Mercury-Jupiter conjunction on Wednesday. If a friend is the recipient of a piece of luck, be happy for them. Mars enters your solar twelfth house on the same day. Mars in the twelfth can mean that you shoot yourself in the foot with your temper (or with desiring more than you can actually buy/eat/pay for). Therefore make a special point of working on issues with anger; sublimate it with exercise, etc.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is in Cancer as the week begins, till Monday morn. Sunday morning's Sun-Moon sextile starts off the day pleasantly, but there's nothing but squares the rest of the day. Moms and everyone will probably feel disappointed in this most sentimental of days, but I think the best option would be for Mom to just go off and do something that she would enjoy, whether it's a bubble bath, a massage, or a movie that no one else wants to go along to see. Ultimately, no one can satisfy your deepest needs except you and God.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo from 5:35 am Monday till Wednesday morning. Your creative juices are stimulated by a Neptune aspect early Monday, perhaps by a lovely sunrise. At midday the Moon trines Uranus, with the sideways planet possibly tickling your funny bone with a joke from the web. The Moon enters compatible Libra midday Friday, offering creative inspiration and opportunities all through the pm. Best to get things done at home Saturday, under the Moon-Saturn conjunction.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 9:59 am Wednesday till midday Friday. Wednesday morning offers an energizing trine from the Moon to Mars in earthy Taurus; you can really put the shoulder to the wheel today. Be careful at lunch that day with that Neptune opposition; avoid alcohol, and check out an new acquaintances who seem to promise much more than anyone can deliver. Friday is a day for adjustments, possibly to insurances or joint accounts. Check those statements for errors.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 11:58 am Friday till midday next Sunday (May 15). Others may look at you Friday expecting you to be the problem-solver, the wizard. Well maybe you don't have the magic wand but you sure have a lot of skills. I am pretty sure that by the end of the workday that you will be struck by an insight (Uranus) into the solution. Saturday begins with a Moon-Saturn conjunction, which is not so dreary as it may sound. You can knock off a ton of chores, then reward yourself with a suitable treat (dinner out, a massage or bubble bath, etc).

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Mars enters your opposite sign Taurus on Wednesday morn. Mars in the seventh house helps you initiate contacts with others. It is helpful for salespeople, politicians and job-seekers. So this month, put your face in front of people and introduce yourself. You really turn on the charm with a helpful Neptune on Thursday, just don't promise more than you can deliver. Wednesday is also the day of the triple conjunction in Aries, your solar sixth house of work and health. A medical exam can come back with a clean bill of health; you may luck onto a wonderful job or be able to turn your hobby into a second income.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – The triple conjunction on Wednesday in Aries is in your solar ninth house of law, college, publishing and the internet. Mercury's presence suggests either a link to publishing or the internet; it sounds like a great day to start a blog or company website. Mars enters Taurus, your solar sixth house, where it may mean that you spend some of your spare time in service to others. That may mean a second job waitressing, or it may mean volunteer work, or it may mean taking your Aunt Ethel on errands.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Mars enters your solar fifth house on Wednesday, where it energizes your interest in sports, both indoor and outdoor if you know what I mean. You may also have a renewed desire to express yourself in artistic ways; that may mean just designing a pattern for laying out new floor tiles, etc. or it could mean taking a piano class. Follow your muse. The triple conjunction in Aries, your solar tenth house of career, occurs on the same day. The fact that it squares your natal sun means that you will probably have to set things in motion if anything is going to happen in regards to career moves. Check the company job listings for anything that would be a promotion.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Tuesday night's Moon in Leo trine Aries planets favors having friends over for a late soiree. Mars enters your solar fourth house on Wednesday, where it will energize your interest in family matters, and possibly in sprucing up the house. You cannot help but assert your feelings to your nearest and dearest, too. This will deepen your family ties in the long run, so don't hold back. Tell them you love them. On Thursday, Neptune in your solar second house is assisted by Mars; be very careful about taking out loans or paying commissions; check the interest rates, etc. very carefully.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in compatible Cancer on Sunday, and in your solar fifth house of children. So that seems auspicious for a happy mother's day in your home. The squares to the Moon, though, make me think that you have to ask for everything. Don't expect everyone to be able to read your mind, you know? For example, leave out the recipe for French toast if that's what you want instead of eggs. On Wednesday, the Moon in compatible Virgo trines Mars in Taurus, giving you the oomph to get out of the chair and tackle spring cleaning or volunteer for club activities.
