Your Milky Way Horoscope Aug. 28-Sept. 3, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Sun in Virgo is trine Pluto in Capricorn at 11:12 am Sunday
. We may be called upon to be the pillar of strength under this aspect. Well, it never hurts to have your first aid kit ready to render assistance to anyone in need. I worry about that nasty Mars square Saturn which is still in effect, too, on top of this kind of transit. Hope any personal crisis is relatively minor. If you need any affirmations to help strengthen your resolve, try the About website:, or you might try the Louise Hay site, too:

We have a New Moon at 1:11 pm Sunday when the Moon conjoins the Sun at 15 degrees, 47 minutes of Virgo. The Sun-Moon oppose Chiron, and trine Pluto; this may suggest surgery or some major medical intervention. The Moon applies to a conjunction with Venus in Virgo hours later, and trines Jupiter in Taurus. This tends to favor just letting yourself be taken care of as your practitioners see fit. All will be well.

Jupiter stations retrograde at 5:17 am Tuesday at 10 degrees, 21 minutes Taurus. Venus in Virgo trines Jupiter a couple hours earlier at 2:36 am Tuesday. The fact that Jupiter is stationing only adds to the power of this aspect. Wishes can come true under this trine (or under a conjunction), with Venus whispering advice on how to attract the things you want. You may feel a bit like you are on vacation --- ahead of the Labor day weekend; maybe it might not be a bad idea to extend the long weekend a bit and just enjoy what remains of summer.

The Sun in Virgo trines Jupiter in Taurus at 11:59 pm Friday. Some astrologers believe that a retrograde planet in aspect only intensifies the effect of that aspect. The spotlight might shine on you today, possibly due to the tremendous luck this aspect can bring. Well, I have learned to count luck in many ways; sometimes it has meant just being able to find an item at a price I can afford. So thank your lucky stars no matter what level of good fortune it delivers on your doorstep.

PS – I am listing a few used astrology books for sale on Amazon Books; Part Two was posted July 1! Look for reviews in my column with a link to the listing. Even more titles to come soon. Thanks for your support (and patience). Note that the Intuition book, listed in Part One, has sold.

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 New Moon will impact health issues (your solar sixth house); if I know you, you prefer to just get things over and done with, and I think that is best in this case. Your hobby may bring some welcome cash on Monday. In fact, a lady in uniform may be quite helpful. Marital friction might mar midweek, but Friday looks like a very harmonious day in general. On Saturday, don't count on getting much done with the kids underfoot.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The New Moon will impact romance, children, and artistic expression (your solar fifth house). Best days this week may be Monday and Tuesday. Jupiter makes a station on Tuesday in your solar first house of self; well, Jove here bodes poorly for sticking to a diet, but you are willing to expand your “sphere of influence” this is a great transit. Be brave enough to get out of your easy chair long enough to look around for things to get involved in.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 - The New Moon will impact home and family matters (your solar fourth house); try to give adult children the room to make their own mistakes, and don't take it so personally if they do fall. Monday, you feel like just cocooning in your home's den and zoning out. On Wednesday you may have to play the taskmaster with the kids --- or ringmaster of the household circus. Thursday favors getting a second opinion on a medical question or possibly going to a medical school where student interns analyze your case.

- June 21-July 22 - The New Moon will impact siblings and neighbors and daily life (your solar third house); be cautious about sharing too much personal information with those outside the immediate family circle. Tuesday may be tense when it comes to trying to balance work and family; juggle, juggle (and deep breaths). Wednesday night may produce some wasted effort but you may be too aggravated to sit still. Thursday favors getting that sports exam out of the way so that the kids can participate in any school activities.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon is in Leo as the week begins, but only for Sunday morning. The Moon opposes Neptune midday Sunday, favoring a movie matinee, or just hanging out by the pool/beach; grab the last weeks of summer while you can. A New Moon in your solar second house of finances on Sunday cautions you to keep a tight hold on expenditures. Jupiter stations in your career house early Tuesday, with a trine to Venus, so by all means do a favor for someone who may turn out to be a great networking contact.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – The Moon is in Virgo from 2:13 pm Sunday till Tuesday afternoon. A New Moon in your solar first house generally offers a chance to start fresh; however, take care this time and use someone as a sounding board before making irreversible decisions. Monday morning brings an opportunity for women to do favors for each other like pet-sitting, etc. You will have plenty of energy Monday night for a workout or any project. A Jupiter station in your solar ninth house can mean a favorable decision re legal issues or from a publisher.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in Libra from 2:25 pm Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. Be prepared for any changes of plans on Tuesday night; you can notify people of cancellations or rescheduling with your usual aplomb. Some things you just have no control over so don't get worked up about it. You want to do your duty Wednesday without getting emotionally involved, but try to add a personal touch. Midday Thursday is made for doing random acts of kindness, or if you are on vacation just going to the movies.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Moon is in Scorpio from 2:48 pm Thursday till Saturday. Thursday night favors seeing an alternative health practitioner, possibly an acupuncturist. Your mate will be in a generous mood Friday morn, but try not to take advantage too much. Meet a friend for a late lunch or visit the jewelry/perfume counter. A late night with your spouse and friends looks very lucky on Friday. Early Saturday you focus on your chores and email, but the pm may be spent on worrying -- distract yourself with movies or charitable projects.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – A New Moon in Virgo Sunday prompts you to do something about your career goals (your solar tenth house), but it would be well to talk things over with a mentor before starting half-baked ideas. Tuesday offers a chance to catch up on errands and messages if you stick to your list. The Moon is in Sag from 5:03 pm Saturday till Labor Day evening. You just want to feel the wind in your hair all weekend.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 - The New Moon will impact legal and publishing matters (your solar ninth house); you may have to closely follow your lawyer's activities to keep things on track. Best days this week may be Monday and Tuesday. Jupiter makes a station on Tuesday in your solar fifth house of children and creative expression; with the trine to Venus, your artistic output may garner favorable reviews. However, work/career matters may require long hours and hard work Tuesday.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - The New Moon will impact estate and insurance issues (your solar eighth house); make sure you understand your rights and coverages, and seek help if a carrier will not pay a bill. Jupiter makes a station on Tuesday in your solar fourth house of home and family; you may wish to expend a lot of money in renovation or decoration of the homestead altho I wonder if this is really a favorable time to do that, economically. But family members should all get some favorable news this month if not this week.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 - The New Moon will impact relationship issues (your solar seventh house); you may have to face problems with some sound couples therapy. Jupiter makes a station in your solar house of siblings, relatives and neighbors; be happy for the good fortunes of those close to you. Friday looks very harmonious in general, so plan any outings, gatherings, or cookouts. Saturday requires some mental adjustments so just be flexible.
