Your Milky Way Horoscope Oct. 16-22, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

Mercury in Scorpio sextiles Pluto at 5 degrees Capricorn at 12:58 pm Sunday. Ideal for settling in with a good mystery novel, writing one of your own, or tackling some mystery in your own life. Dig thru the business receipts to make sure they add up right, audit the books, check up on those in your employ.
Mercury in Scorpio opposes Jupiter at 6 (almost 7) degrees Taurus at 2:55 pm Monday. Jupiter is the higher octave of Mercury in terms of knowledge or education; you may be drawn to enroll in a college course, join a seminar, or even teach.
The Sun in Libra trines Neptune at 28 degrees Aquarius at 7:57 pm Friday. Feel like slipping and hiding for a while? Neptune can indicate holidays and vacations, times when you leave behind all your cares and chores and just float in a pool, etc. Or, with autumn nipping the air, taking a drive up to the country to see the fall colors. Also, a great time to come up with your Halloween costume; great disguises beckon.
PS – I listed a few used astrology books for sale on Amazon Books; Part Two was posted July 1. **Includes a classic Alan Leo book** 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 – Your heart is centered on home and family life from Monday night till Thursday morn; Tuesday is most favorable. You may upset others without realizing it Thursday morn so apply your best manners to every situation. Your pocketbook is the focus of stresses Thursday night, possibly when you wish you could treat someone to something. Friday night is ideal for a night out with your mate and some select friends.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 - Mercury opposes Jupiter on Monday night; you may be drawn to enroll in a college course, join a seminar, or even teach. Your mate may escort you around the town on Tuesday. Home life may be stressful Thursday night, when a family member (or the house itself) may cost you more than you budgeted for. Saturday may well be the most productive day of the week, when Moon in compatible Virgo trines both Pluto and Jupiter.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from Sunday till Monday night. Sunday night favors an outlet for your competitive fires; have someone over for Scrabble. You are up bright n early Monday for a day with your perky nose to the grindstone – but by evening I think you will be ready to escape for awhile. Friday will probably be busy with job-related trips, but is should be worth it in terms of orders. Be careful of an altercation in transit Friday afternoon, tho.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – The Moon is back in its home, Cancer, from 9:38 pm Monday till Thursday morn. You might play Dr Mom Monday night; have the first aid kit ready for children's boo-boos, and the tea bags ready for friends who cry on your shoulders. On Tuesday night, you may receive happy news about the kids, creative interests, or speculations. Wednesday you may feel like you are beating your head against a brick wall; maybe you should aim a trickle of water at it instead.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – The Moon shines its spotlight on Leo from 6:06 am Thursday till Saturday morning. You might decide to change practitioners Thursday morn. Also Thursday, insights may flash into your head so pay attention. You may feel like the company is headed in the wrong direction, and you may be right, but it is premature to make any judgment. Friday morning may be stressful on the home front, perhaps with a surprise announcement of a child's engagement, but I know you will get busy with wedding preparations. Saturday morn is lazy and contented.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Mercury opposite Jupiter on Monday night in your houses of education may mean enrolling in classes or even teaching. The Moon is in Virgo 10:40 am Saturday thru the next weekend. Surprises may come your way Saturday, forcing you to make some changes, but you'll adapt. Saturday night can be very productive of practical work, perhaps canning jars of your splendid jams and sauces.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – Your best day may be Monday when the Moon in compatible Gemini trines Sun and Saturn in your sign; legal matters and higher education are favored if you have done your homework. Wednesday pm will find challenges at work. The Sun in your sign trines Neptune Friday night in your solar fifth house of romance; a most glamorous and romantic date is favored. Not a good time for starting a romance, tho, since the other party may not be what he or she seems at first.

SCORPIO - Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – Sunday afternoon favors snuggling in with a new mystery novel, your favorite form of light reading. Mercury opposite Jupiter on Monday night may make you and your mate the best student-teacher combo ever. (PS- The teaching may go both ways.) Tuesday may be your best day, with Moon in compatible Cancer making easy trines to Mercury and Venus in your sign. Children and creative outlets are favored in the pm.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Sunday night may be your fave part of the week when the Moon and Mars in compatible signs entertain you with sports, games or theatrical shows. A message from a respected friend arrives Monday; heed good advice. Income from your sideline may alleviate financial pressures on Tuesday, but don't spend it before you've gotten it. Thursday offers a great time with adult children or entertainment; take a day trip together.

CAPRICORN - Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday afternoon is the wrong time to settle in with paperwork, but Pluto favors digging down for some forensic bookkeeping then. Try to use a light touch with your mate on Tuesday morning, or she will feel like she's treated like a servant. You may be inspired Thursday by showmanship and comedy geniuses. Saturday night can be quite productive.

AQUARIUS - Jan. 20-Feb. 17 – A minor argument with your spouse on Sunday may clarify what makes her happy. Your best day may be Monday when the Moon in compatible Gemini trines Sun and Saturn in Libra; legal matters and higher education are favored if you have done your homework. A judge may hand down a verdict (at last!) on Friday, but you will have to work hard to make your case on Thursday.

PISCES - Feb. 18-March 19 – Mercury opposite Jupiter on Monday night in your houses of education may mean enrolling in classes or even teaching. Tuesday may be your best day, with Moon in compatible Cancer making easy trines to Mercury and Venus in Scorpio; higher education and publishing are favored in the pm. Saturday can be productive if you pitch in on a spouse's project.
