Your Milky Way Horoscope Sept. 11-17, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Venus in Virgo sextiles Mars at 25 degrees of Cancer at 12:22 am Sunday. Venus-Mars aspects can be very romantic, of course, although the fact that this is in caring signs like Virgo and Cancer suggests that the expression may take the form of tending to each other's creature comforts-- probably late last Saturday.

Mercury in Virgo is inconjunct Uranus at 3 degrees Aries at 1:01 am Sunday. Mechanical or electrical tools/gadgets may break down or malfunction. Avoid haste in any communications, since your brain and mouth could experience one of those unfortunate disconnects. Anxiety or the jitters may make it difficult to concentrate, and impulsiveness when driving must be avoided.

Mercury in Virgo trines Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn at 1:27 am Monday. You might attempt the use of a key affirmation, chant, or even a spell with Pluto's power behind it, late on Sunday. Concentration will be excellent, helping you solve problems or puzzles. Cut through superficiality to a meaningful discussion with a mentor or other person who has a great influence on you.

Mercury in Virgo trines Jupiter at 9 degrees of Taurus at 9:43 pm Wednesday. Mercury and Jove together can really help you sell a volume of items you wish to be rid of; with Jupiter retrograde, I am thinking this favors used items. Hold a rummage sale or list things on Ebay and Craigslist. Good luck!

Venus enters its second home, Libra, at 10:40 pm Wednesday. Libras can benefit from a visit to the salon for a fresh look, or possibly a stop at the local day spa. Libras usually love flowers, so pluck the late blooms from you garden, or pick up a bunch at the florist. Flowers have spiritual qualities, which may be why they usually lift people's spirits. Libra loves dance, especially ballet; with the Venus transit you may enjoy attending a performance. And since Libra is the sign of marriage, you may find yourself spending even more time with that special someone; courtship is important to you, no matter how out-of-fashion it may be with the general population. However, you may suffer a rift first – see the following aspect.

Venus in Libra opposes Uranus at almost 3 degrees of Aries at 7:05 am Saturday. Hard aspects between Venus-Uranus often denote attraction to the unusual or foreign, but not a long-term liaison. Uranus may signify a breakup here. While you may enjoy this Other, and learn a lot from him/her, do not make any long-term plans with this person!

PS – I listed 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 Moon is in Aries from 2:49 am Tuesday till Thursday afternoon. Moon-Uranus squares Pluto in Capricorn on Tuesday; there may be some kind of rift or power struggle at work, and you could decide to go out on your own inre career. On Wednesday, do not expect your spouse to be totally supportive of your wishes; try to assure her regarding insurance coverages or other benefits. Thursday morn may produce wasted effort (possibly with some argument or difference of opinion), tho the second time you do a task should be durable.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – The Moon is in its exaltation, Taurus, from 3:25 pm Thursday till next Sunday morn. You may not get as much done Thursday night as you hoped; you may need to rest aching body parts. Maybe a nice Epsom salt soak will help. Try a positive affirmation late Thursday, and you may feel tons better in the morning. Midday Friday holds promise of a wonderful lunch with a Santa Claus-type. Moon trine Mercury Friday pm suggests long chats by phone or in person, so put out some tea and cookies. Have adult children or perhaps a new romantic interest over for supper on Saturday; extremely harmonious vibes prevail.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – Monday night is auspicious for income from career. Friends may seem too strange for you Tuesday, tho they may seem amusing in the retelling. Midweek you may hit on ways to make money at home, possibly with home parties. Wednesday is good for having people over for dinner, especially those you want to impress. Venus enters your solar fifth house on Wednesday night. Ah, romance beckons. Children seem more delightful and affectionate than usual. Your creative talents find an outlet, possibly by performing in social situations.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Monday is favored for work issues, but Tuesday might be power-struggle day. Midweek offers an opportunity to make money teaching, possibly in the form of seminars for organizations. Venus enters your solar fourth house on Wednesday night. You freshen up the home with paint, decorations or flowers. You may host a lovely young guest in your home. Friday lunch with a generous friend is very favored; you might thank them for all they've done by picking up the check, but you'll be repaid in spades. PS- After this week, Mars will leave your sign, so try to wrap up unfinished projects.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – You may be able to sell health-related or hobby-related items mid-week, with the aid of a Venus-Jupiter trine. (put your craft items on consignment or online) Venus enters your solar third house on Wednesday night. Compliments may come your way, or the mail may bring certificates for free whatevers. You may have an opportunity to teach an art or craft. Career matters are very favored on Friday, with a little help from Moon, Mercury and Jupiter.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – You may be able to sell books, etc at rummage (with the aid of a Mercury-Jupiter trine) or by listing them online. Venus enters your solar second house on Wednesday night. Finances may take an upturn (after an early interruption in the flow of funds, possibly due to an ATM malfunction). You may see more demand for your services, or you may gain income from multiple sources. Late in the week, your mind may be on going back to school.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – The Moon is in a creative sign for you on Sunday-Monday; pull out your crafts or camera. Venus enters your sign on Wednesday night; treat yourself to a day spa, or a new salon haircut. You may even enjoy attending a dance performance. Foreigners or unusual people may hold a brief attraction for you, but aspects do not favor long-term prospects. Midweek offers a chance to make money thru connections with your spouse's family or contacts.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Chat with an influential friend early in the week, as he/she may be able to at least introduce you to someone. Monday night is great for a water-sign gathering, or holing up with your creative work. On Thursday, your mate may prefer cuddling on the couch to going out; nice work if you can get it, as they say. Relationships or public appearances are highly favored on Friday, so get something cooking now.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – On Tuesday a friend may borrow money, but count your bills so you have enough for your own needs. Midweek offers a chance to make your avocation into your vocation, so don't skip opportunities to network. Venus enters your solar eleventh house of friends and clubs; you may join an artistic or musical hobby group. Global music, for example, is one possibility. New friends are attractive, artistic, kind, and agreeable.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Tuesday can be a stressful day at work, but Wednesday and Friday are very favorable. Venus enters your solar tenth house of career on Wednesday night. Perks of the job may start appearing on your desk, like the exec washroom key, gift cards, or other freebies. You are able to move toward goals with greater finesse and grace, with manners being key. Make time for a luncheon or dinner with your mate on Friday, when the Moon and Jupiter dispose you to be generous with each other.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – Seek out good advice Sunday from people in the know. Money matters are favored on Monday; possibly you might find a better interest rate or save on fees. Venus enters your solar ninth house of college-publishing-legal stuff-religion on Wednesday night. A legal judgment may be in your favor; an editor likes your manuscript; critics like your book; you meet agreeable people on campus. Friday is favorable for family time, maybe even a family picnic or reunion.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – The Moon is in Pisces as the week begins, till the wee hours Tuesday. The Moon has easy sextiles to Pluto and Jupiter Sunday; have brunch with an influential friend in the morning, and try to expand your mind midday. Monday morning may evidence tension with your mate, but dinner is lively especially if you have children sharing the table. Midweek offers opportunities to earn some extra cash by teaching, possibly on relationships or counseling.
