Your Milky Way Horoscope Dec. 4-10, 2011

By Milky Way Maid

The Sun is conjunct a retrograde Mercury at 11 degrees, 51' Sag at 3:52 am Sunday
. Sun-Mercury conjunctions are always a major signpost of the economic cycle so keep an ear tuned to the news from Wall Street (occupied or not). I am going to hazard a guess that the continuing protests by OWS may begin to have an effect on the markets since the movement succeeded in getting thousands of people to withdraw funds from the major banks, and who knows what other measures the protesters make take to make their voices heard by the Haves.

Mercury quickly squares Mars at 10 degrees Sag at 6:19 pm Sunday. Mercury square Mars usually denotes passionate debate, angry words, and given the continuing Occupy Wall Street protests, I would expect that the protests may either turn violent or that the police may ruthlessly crush them. Or both.

Venus in Capricorn trines Mars at 10 degrees Virgo at 10:07 am Monday. Harmonious aspects between male and female energies augur well for starting relationships or for facilitating settlements between opposing parties. One is liable to fall in love with almost anyone so be sure to put yourself near someone that meets your standards. Also creative inspiration is spurred into action by supporting Mars energy.

Jupiter in Taurus sextiles Chiron at almost 1 degree Pisces at 7:03 pm Tuesday. Sufferers may benefit from a healer of any type, from conventional medicine to the laying on of hands. Pisces leans toward spiritual succor.

We have a total Lunar Eclipse at 18 degrees, 11' Gemini at 9:36 am Saturday. Earlier the same day, Uranus makes a direct station at zero degrees, 39 minutes of Aries. I might note that Jupiter is also nearly at a standstill, and makes his direct station on December 25 at zero degrees, 22' of Taurus. Even tho this is considered a minor aspect, the semi-sextile will I think have a larger, surprising impact due to the fact that they are stationing and will be sitting on zero degrees of their signs for some time. Uranus is of course the sign of revolution and rebellion and protest, change not just for change's sake but in the interest of justice and the implied contract (Jupiter) with the people.

An eclipse chart set for New York city has 22 degrees, 16' Capricorn rising, the sign of Big Business. The Ascendant is widely conjunct Venus in the twelfth house and square Saturn in the ninth of law, national news and the internet; I predict that business will suffer from withheld (Saturn) patronage (Venus) by customers possibly as another phase of the OWS protest. Business might also be frustrated by the limits of legal measures that they can take against the protesters.

The Part of Fortune, it may interest you to know, is right on the descendant in Cancer, favoring the protesters. The midheaven is at 16 degrees 26' Scorpio, conjunct Juno at 15 degrees, sextile Mars in the eighth and sextile Venus in the twelfth. The news may be dominated by a woman, someone who dramatically focuses and balances the energies of rebellion values being debated in the public arena. The Sun is conjunct the North Node (four degrees apart) in the eleventh house, and the nodes are closely square Mars. The nodes also square Ceres at 19 Pisces. Pallas and Vesta are both in Aquarius in the first house.

Jan Spiller says that a lunar eclipse in Gemini brings lessons in how to communicate, both in terms of language and social behavior. Ask for feedback to ensure that what you said is what others heard. One must give up hermit-like tendencies and become more socially aware. One is called upon to share the knowledge one has gained in this life and in previous lives.

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 Sunday till Tuesday morning. Sunday may be rather stressful, with squares to Pluto and Venus in Capricorn. The evening is more agreeable as you spend time chatting with kindred spirits over dinner. Monday is devoted to work. Tuesday morn is brightened by a sympathetic friend. Uranus goes direct in your sign Saturday. If Uranus is conjunct your Sun, heart irregularities may occur and should receive attention. Other Arians may be upset, may be accident-prone, so chill out and be aware of your surroundings. And some Arians may find their inner rebel, and embrace change.

TAURUS - April 20-May 20 – An insurance matter may be belatedly settled early in the week. The Moon is in Taurus from 9:34 am Tuesday till Thursday night. You may overdo at lunch Tuesday, or perhaps you treat someone. You read the real lowdown on the internet that night. Wednesday may be a power day for you, when the moon in Taurus trines Mars and Venus in the other earth signs. Earth signs build things, whether tangible or intangible, from houses to companies. So have your plans at hand, and gather a work crew. You may have to find other people's money to fund the project. Thursday evening you can be a little idealistic, but the mood is perfect for a night at the movies.

GEMINI - May 21-June 20 – The Moon is in Gemini from 9:52 pm Thursday till next Sunday. You may have a brilliant idea Thursday night but be safety-conscious before getting on any ladders. Friday morn may be spent on sales talks, and the rest of the day is rather strenuous. The Full Moon eclipse occurs in your sign on Saturday morning; see above notes about that. You might be put on the spot as a spokesperson or you may have to in effect tutor others on how to communicate and to pay attention to the effect one's words have on others. Any weekend chores should be saved for Sat. night or Sunday.

CANCER - June 21-July 22 – Attempts to get a loan early in the week may not pan out according to initial promises. Also balancing demands of work and family may be more difficult right now, but it's hard to say no to overtime. Tuesday favors lunch with a dear, generous friend. You feel more like cocooning later in the week. The Uranus station in your career house Saturday may throw a curve ball at you regarding your employer or possibly one's father.

LEO - July 23-Aug. 22 – Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction in your solar fifth house of creativity may bring a burst of ideas, not all of which will work out but write them down before they are lost. Sunday evening favors a bull session to generate more ideas, or how you might make them work. Thursday, prepare to turn your understudy role into a star turn. Uranus makes a station in your solar ninth house of law and publishing. Possibly a book deal offer may come out of the blue, or a legal matters may take a funny bounce of the football.

VIRGO - Aug. 23-Sept. 22 – Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction in your solar fourth house throws a caution flag on appliance purchases. Tuesday favors posting anything important on the internet or on your blog. Wednesday could also a power day for you if you are building anything tangible, or investing. Guard your health Thursday night, and refuse to be ruffled on a stressful Friday. Uranus going direct in your solar eighth house Saturday may signal an unexpected bequest or a undependable insurer. Saturday morning also finds you juggling demands on your time.

LIBRA - Sept. 23-Oct. 22 – A flurry of communications flies in early in the week, although with Mercury retrograde not all of it will pan out as planned. Sunday is also stressful at home, but try to balance the holiday rush with budget restraint. The Moon is in compatible Gemini starting Thursday night, but life is no less demanding. Make time to just chill out with an eggnog or tea. Uranus going direct in your solar seventh house Saturday may signal a rift with, or at least surprising news about, a personal or business partner.

SCORPIO
- Oct. 23-Nov. 21 – The Sun and Mercury are conjunct in your solar second house of money on Sunday; financial matters can make a new start altho stressful demands are not over. You balance Mars and Venus energies thru volunteering for non-profits or other groups this week. Finances, insurance, investments, and friends all make demands on you; perhaps legal services can help bargain down the balance owed. Uranus going direct in your solar sixth house Saturday may mean sudden illnesses or sudden job offers.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov. 22-Dec. 21 – Best day of the week may be Sunday, with the Moon in compatible aspect and favoring time in convivial company. You may also have a brief argument, too, but it is best ended by agreeing to disagree. You may donate some time to a club or non-profit early in the week. Someone may ask you for creative input mid-week. Encourage the wife and kids to go to some holiday event by themselves Thursday night. Friday night is tense, and does not favor outings with family nor career events. Uranus direct in your solar fifth house of children may find a child makes a surprising announcement.

CAPRICORN
- Dec. 22-Jan. 19 – Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction may denote that things you'd rather remained private become public embarrassments. But a Sunday evening jaunt with family creates excited chatter and creative expression. Wednesday may be a power day personally; you find plans online on how to make your dreams into reality. You can't say no to children's requests on Thursday. Uranus going direct in your solar fourth house Saturday may shake up the household in some way.

AQUARIUS
- Jan. 20-Feb. 17 - Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction in your solar eleventh house of friends may caution you to take what your friends say with a grain of salt. Air signs enjoy tossing around ideas on Sunday night. Monday favors a private rendezvous instead of Christmas shopping. On Friday you might take the kids along on a volunteer task. Uranus going direct in your solar third house Saturday may open up a new world to you online, but do be careful to have your firewalls up.

PISCES
- Feb. 18-March 19 – Sunday's Sun-Mercury conjunction in your solar tenth house of career may signal a new start in some ways, but be cautious about promises that may or may be fulfilled. The beginning and end of the week have stressful days, so employ your “psychic shield” setting. Sunday finds you trying to juggle home and career again. Guard your health Thursday night. You are pulled in four directions Friday, but try not to feel like a wishbone. Uranus going direct in your solar second house Saturday may signal erratic finances or payment.
